Fragments Friday

Friday Fragments is the creation of Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time. If you’re not already reading her blog, today is a good day to start! :-)

My Friday Fragments…

~ ~ You know how most churches these days have signs out front, usually displaying their service times, or an inspirational message? Well, one church that I pass on my way to work had a rather odd message last week. (I tried to get a photo but failed miserably.) It said, “Humpty Dumpty was pushed.” Huh? ~ ~

~ ~ Last Friday, my supervisor told me that the woman I was hired to fill in for is not coming back. I talked to the woman in human resources on Tuesday, and she informed me that the job has to be posted internally for seven days, but that my supervisor “really wants” me, so it’s looking good! Hopefully, I will get an offer today (and a raise)! :-) ~ ~

~ ~ In case you somehow missed it (as if that were possible!), Tim and I got engaged on Tuesday! You can read/see more about it in my previous post.  I am the happiest and luckiest woman in the world! ~ ~

~ ~ Today is Tim’s birthday!  Happy birthday, Sweetheart! I love you so very much!! ~ ~

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

My BIG News

“There’s no one that comes close to you, could ever take your place.  Cause only you can love me this way…”

It’s quite fitting that this, such an important post, just so happens to be my 200th.

Our Ring

♥ WE’RE ENGAGED!! ♥
And I am the happiest woman on earth!

Only You Can Love Me This Way

Well I know there’s a reason
And I know there’s a rhyme
We were meant to be together
That’s why
We can roll with the punches
We can stroll hand in hand
And when I say it’s forever
You understand

That you’re always in my heart,
You’re always on my mind
But when it all becomes too much,
You’re never far behind
And there’s no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

I could have turned a different corner
I could have gone another place
Then I’d of never had this feeling
That I feel today, yeah…

And you’re always in my heart,
Always on my mind
When it all becomes too much,
You’re never far behind
And there’s no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

And you’re always in my heart,
You’re always on my mind
And when it all becomes too much,
You’re never far behind
And there’s no one that comes close to you
Could ever take your place
Cause only you can love me this way

Only you can love me this way.

I was trying to think of what to say…how to express my feelings on this very special day. Sometimes, there just aren’t any words to accurately describe how you feel. This is one of those times.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are fifteen of them:

Happy Anniversary

When You Lie Next to Me

Maybe, tonight, we could close the door and lock ourselves inside
Take time to feel
I don’t wanna miss the chance to be so real
The days all fly away
And I forget the truth
Everything that matters is in this room

When you lie next to me
Breathin’ the air I breathe
We don’t have to speak
And just be
Our love’s a precious thing
Don’t wanna waste a day
Or one more minute
Without you in it
Life if so sweet
When you lie next to me

My heart is yours
But every part of me still wants to give you more
More time to love
Cause you never know when life will leave us
I wanna take in all the beauty here
Let the world around us just disappear

When you lie next to me
Breathin’ the air I breathe
We don’t have to speak
And just be
Our love’s a precious thing
Don’t wanna waste a day
Or one more minute
Without you in it
Life if so sweet
When you lie next to me

Speedy Delivery!

Warning: This post is not for the faint of heart! Proceed at your own risk! LOL!

The other day, I saw a news article, “Pregnant woman uses train toilet, baby slips out.” In Ahmedabad, India, a pregnant woman gave birth while sitting on the crapper on a train.

According to the article, most of the toilets on Indian trains are merely shoots that empty right onto the tracks. (How disgusting is that?!) So, yes, you guessed it, the baby girl was found lying on the train tracks!

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I like to write about these crazy kinds of stories, but this one is even better!

You see, my daughter, B, almost had the same fate!

No, she wasn’t born on a train. She didn’t end up on train tracks. And she wasn’t born in India.

B was, however, thisclose to being born in a toilet!

It was March of 1995. I was at the hospital and in labor with baby #4. I remember saying to myself, “Oh shit, I remember what this feels like now!” as the contractions got stronger.

My doctor had stopped in and checked on me at some point, and told me I had a ways to go. He was going to drop his wife off at the airport and come back. Neither of us knew then that he wouldn’t be back in time.

One of the nurses measured and said I was only x centimeters dilated. (Another one who believed I had a ways to go.)

I was in pain, tired and pissed that I had a ways to go–and did I mention the pain?–so I told them I wanted drugs.

Nurse informed me that I’d have to have an iv, so I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed again. As I’m not very fond of bed pans, I opted to use the restroom one last time before they hooked me up with my liquid relief.

*** This is the part you may want to skip if you’re at all apprehensive of hearing about using the toilet or the nitty-gritty details of babies almost being born. ***

Within seconds of me sitting on the commode, Nurse walked by the open restroom door, and asked, “You don’t feel like you have to push, do you?”, when I felt the baby’s head! So, a very surprised me responded, “Uh, yes!”

I don’t know where they all came from, but there were suddenly about six people in the room, getting me back onto the bed, my feet in the stirrups and telling me not to push. Heh!

One of the associates from my doctor’s office came rushing down to someone’s rescue (cuz I certainly wasn’t going to hold that kid in much longer–hello?!), and delivered my beautiful baby girl. The doctor’s shirt got ruined because (bless him!) he didn’t even take the time to throw scrubs on.

Being just shy of 13, B doesn’t quite see the humor in this story yet. She will.
