Fun Facts Friday

1. Whoever develops a bug killing spray for stinkbugs should get the nobel peace prize.

2. My daughter wants to know why god made stink bugs--good question.

3. Can you tell stinkbugs have invaded my house? Yes, disgusting.

4. The internet is amazing. When blogger ticked me off by not letting me comment on certain blogs, I turned to Twitter. I tweeted my issue and the fantastic Christina Lee and Stina helped me. Uncheck the keep me signed in button where you sign in. So far it's worked. I've got so many comments to catch up on. Thanks guys.

5. I'm praying for the people who have been hit hard by the tornados.

6. I slammed my thumb in a door and I'm afraid an ugly bruise might surface. Oh and my daughters power wheel jeep ran over my foot. I didn't realize how heavy those things are. Bruise number 2. I sound like such a wimp.

7. I'm reading an awesome MS right now from a CP who is awesome. Yes, too many awesomes, but this person is. I'm so scared to show her my WiP.

8.Not happy with my progress this week on my WIP. Hopefully, next week will be better. I'm trying to focus on it, but my gut keeps telling me to slow down on it. If I don't, I will have so much to change, plus I'm not sure where it's going. #totallylosinginterestinit. #notlikingwhereitsgoing

9. Check out Kathi Oram Peterson's blog. Her new book, River Whispers, has been released. Check it out.

10. I'm still trying to figure out why there is a show for Extreme Couponing. I really don't get it. They are basically buying stuff just for the high of saving money. Who needs 35 bottles of Mallox? Seriously? Then they show  you their stockpile in the basement. I guess that's why Buried Alive : Hoarders is right after it.

11. Can't wait to meet up with long time friends this weekend. We're checking out some German inspired beer haus's (Yes, I mixed German and English. Some of my German friends call it Germish and I don't think that's proper grammar). Philly people have you checked any of these places out-- Frankford Hall and Brauhaus Schmitz?
What are your plans for the weekend?

Did you reach your goals?
Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. My plans are never big over the weekend. write some blog posts, do some reading, but for the most part enjoy my family. Have a great one!

  2. Extreme Couponing? Really?
    God also made slugs. Not sure why.
    Taking a short vacation this weekend. Hope yours is good as well!

  3. I hate stink bugs, too. More alarmed by the mosquitos at the moment, though, after all the rain this spring.

    Have a great weekend with your friends!

  4. I didn't know that happened to your comments. Technology sometimes... Enjoy your weekend. :)

  5. if it makes you feel any better, i sliced my finger with a knife last weekend while cutting a lemon. It still hurts, but at least the swelling has gone down

  6. Gotta finish my WIP (yay but also scary), finish my scheduled posts for the next week and a half, and read some books. Woo.
    - Sophia.

  7. The stink bugs haven't hit us yet, but if you have them, we can't be far behind.

    As for the tornadoes, I cry every time I see the news. My sister lives in Kansas, and she texted me during school hours on Wednesday to say that her field day had been interrupted by tornado sirens and she and her students were cowering inside the building. False alarm (for them) as it turns out, but terrifyingly close to home.

  8. I can't take credit for the solution. Christina accidentally figured it out. :D

    I didn't reach my goal. I was hoping to catch up on my reading. #didnothappen :P

  9. Good luck with your WIP next week. I know how it is to feel disappointed in one's progress ;) But I'm now writing off May and looking to June with great inspiration. :D

  10. I also have an awesome CP who makes me want to say, "Never mind, I'm still working on my chapter." every time I read hers. But, critiques are great! Have a good weekend!

  11. Christine,
    Thanks for the shout out for my new book!

    Sorry about the stinkbugs. Not fun.
    Much luck on your wip. :)

  12. I had problems commenting on your blog, but I'm hoping that's all cleared up... much like your poor thumb! ouch!

    Take care, honey~ :o)

  13. I also hate stink bugs. when I accidentally crashed in on the floor they leave a nasty scent and it causes me headache.
