Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

Spouse unexpectedly took the day off today. He slept in, we went to lunch together, and now he's running some errands. Work is rather slow for him right now, so it was a good day to take off.

I saw this and laughed out loud:

My friend Jared supplied me with this photo:

along with his caption "I didn't know Jesus was into that kind of thing." Don't you just love clever people?

Tomorrow is my cousin's wedding, which I wrote about here. I have learned that my parents will be there, as well as my middle sister and her husband. I'm not quite sure what to expect from them, but I am not worried or concerned. I have decided that if my parents and/or sister approach me and say something ingratiating like "Its nice to see you", I'm NOT going to reply "Its nice to see you, too". Instead, I will simply say "Thank you". I will not allow them to sweep 16 years under the carpet as if nothing happened.

Although Halloween is supposed to be a time for scary fun, it can be plain old scary if you are the parent of an effeminate young boy. Fortunately, The Onion has some helpful masculine costume suggestions!
Check it out here.

Speaking of Halloween costumes, this is one of the BEST Halloween costumes EVER!

Have a fun, safe Halloween and a terrific weekend!

Have fun at the wedding and DON'T be concerned about your parents/sister. It's all about YOU (and your cousin, of course!).

Good luck, have fun, be strong, keep spouse close and be prepared to say, 'IT IS MY COUSIN'S DAY.'

I'm a bit lagging in my blog reading, but I hope you have/had a good time at the wedding.
Remember: living well is the best revenge, and you and Spouse have a lovely life together and that's all that matters!

Mark, I'm hoping everything went well and you could feel strong and proud, but most of all, I hope you were able to enjoy the wedding!

Thinking about you, Spouse and the wedding. Hope it was great and you left it feeling totally empowered around your family.

Love to you. Sorry, again, I missed you in NYC last week. I had the world's most impossible travel schedule for work- with out of town work stuff on both that Friday and the following Monday.

Talk to you soon and hope to catch up in person one day soon.
