It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to participate in Friday’s Fragments, and I have to say I’ve missed being entertained by fellow fragmenter’s. So let’s get right to it, shall we?
We’ve had scorching hot weather this past week – but we are having a reprieve with the major thunderstorms that rolled through here last night. Going from 90-degrees the past few days to a high of 57 today – what a major change! But at least that will make visiting the laundromat today a much more pleasant experience. If you can ever call a trip to the laundromat a ‘pleasant’ one. We are looking at buying a new washer hopefully this weekend, or at least sometime next week. It will be nice to be able to do laundry at home again.
Speaking of the broken washing machine – HH did finally speak to a manager of sorts at Sears. He offered us a 10% discount on a new washer, but in order to take advantage of the discount, we were going to need to have him send a guy out to confirm that our washer is broken. For $75.00. Which, since the washers are on sale, would cost us about $10 more than what we would save. We won’t be taking ‘advantage’ of the discount.
Princess Nagger is actually looking forward to going to the dentist this morning even though it’s not going to be fun addressing her abscessed tooth. She’s only glad that the dentist appointment will make her miss swimming today. Too bad I can’t take a hit off the laughing gas to calm my nerves during the procedure. Hopefully she won’t have to have the tooth pulled, because that means the addition of a spacer to keep that spot open for when her adult tooth decides to replace it.
I was going to let her stay home today, but she wants me to drop her off after the appointment because one of her classmates is having a birthday celebration at school today. She doesn’t want to miss the goody bag or the cupcakes. You have to love the motivation for going to school on a Friday.
Princess Nagger was ecstatic when she saw this in the Scholastic Book Club flyer recently, so of course we ordered one:
Notice I had to take the first picture upside down because she had put her finished creation on top of the box. She never ceases to amaze me with her unique creativity. Here’s what her finished dinosaur looks like:
Our resident frog has returned to the pond. Spring has definitely sprung:
Princess Nagger Conversation of the Week:
PN: “What can I have to eat?”
Me: “What do you mean? You just had lunch!”
PN: “But I’m still hungry! I’m a growing kid, you know!”

Ultimate Blog Party
This my second year participating in 5 Minutes for Mom’s Ultimate Blog Party – come join the fun, it’s a great way to meet new people! The wonderful ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom are giving away some great prizes! Here’s what I would love to win:
**GRAND PRIZE at the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 is a Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025**
I could certainly use a new laptop after mine decided to bite the dust recently.
Princess Nagger would be in seventh heaven with this kit.
Kristen is a true artist and I love all the creations she’s made.
16 – A custom-made tutu for a baby or little girl. This can be made in any color combination you like (classic pink or your favorite team colors). Tutus made by Sweet Patootie’s are the fluffiest little girl tutus you’ll find – like a REAL ballerina’s tutu! Great for costumes OR everyday play!

Princess Nagger has been nagging me to get one of Sweet Patootie’s tutus.
83 – Disney Mickey 5-in-1 Tasty Baker by Pop Art. An all in one table top appliance that bakes pancakes, cakes, quickbreads, biscuits and donuts and more into 6 bite sized shapes (Mickey mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto) in about one-third the time. It can even cook eggs.

This would make some fun breakfasts for Princess Nagger!
