Fractional Friday



It's a 3 Day weekend so it's like a TGIF - Bonus!!

1. Columbus Day - I know, it's one of those cheesy holidays where some people get the day off and some do not, but for me - it's going to be a NON-Monday!! Yippy!

2. Parent-Teacher conferences - It was that time of the year again and I had to meet DQ's teacher. Very nice lady, nice things to say about DQ...is it sad that I thought it would be interesting to grab a beer on the way to the conference and show up with it in a paper bag, just to see what her reaction would be? (Guess, my redneck roots are showing) :)

3. Lottery - I WON! (Ok, not that kind of lottery) but I'm convinced I won the 'random call in the middle of the night' lottery. Why would I think this, you ask? Well lucky for me Not once, not twice but 3 times this week I've gotten calls on my phone at odd hours of the night (only to wake me from my brief/uninterrupted slumber.) There was a call at 3:21am one night (I do not answers numbers I do not know, if it is important they will leave a message and I will call them back.) There was one at 3:25am another night - another random number with no message AND the keeper was a picture mail at 4:45 am (see below)

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by this morning. I am definitely trying to just take things one step at a time, as that's pretty much all I'm capable of right now!

I'm jealous that you get a 3-day weekend. I work for a BANK and I don't even get Monday off. I miss the old days when people didn't expect the world to be 24/7/365. Sigh...

And as far as the phone calls & picture message...all I can say is that at that time of the night, you're lucky that you didn't get a more objectionable picture sent to you!!

Someone actually called you in the middle of the night and left you a picture of a squirrel? I'm sorry but that is freaking hilarious!! But I would have been sooo mad about getting woken up! :)

The squirrel picture was too funny! It reminded me of something. Rob's wife, Roda ~ he met her in Dubai (She's originally from the Philippines). When she walked outside one morning, she pointed to the fence and a critter running across it. She asked Rob, "What is THAT?" Rob said, "It's a squirrel." Roda asked, "Is it dangerous? It looks like a rat!" Hehe

I'm jealous of you not having to work on Monday. I could use an extra day off. All this travelling nonsense is starting to wear on me.

Maybe the squirrel is holding the winning lottery numbers for tomorrow night?

Wow! Picture mail in the middle of the night! Awesome! Every now and then, I get those random late night calls, too. I also do not answer. I figure it's some drunk dummy getting the number wrong. ;-) But I have never gotten goofy pix mail in the middle of the night. That? Is awesome.

OK, the random squirrel picture is hilarious! Are all of the calls from the same number?
