Shotgun Rider, BAM and A-Z…

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!

It has been a month since I last participated so I am full of fragments.

I had another jaw surgery the first week of January. This was the 7th surgery on my jaw/mouth in 2 ½ years. This one was rough. I am SO glad that one is done. It feels so good to be eating real food again!

One month from today I will be in Nashville for the very first BAM blogging conference. I am so excited that I will be meeting in person, some of the most supportive blogging friends. Did I say I was excited?

Those of you, fragmenters that know me know that the first week of March my husband and I always attend bike week in Daytona Beach.

Because of the BAM conference we will be leaving 3 days late. It’s a good thing bike week is actually 10 days long. My plane from Nashville will land in Philly Sunday afternoon and I will hop in the truck and head south. I’m sure this song will be playing because John has been singing it to me for a month now.

While I was recovering from surgery we binge watched the first four seasons of Downton Abbey. I had seen a few episodes and I couldn’t wait to catch up. It is so hard to wait till Sunday now.

The sign-up list is open for the April A-Z Challenge! I will be helping out with the challenge again this year and I would love to see your blog on the list! You can find all of the details here:

This time last year I was in North Carolina helping to care for my dear friend Joelle. I cannot believe it has been almost a year since we lost her. #ihatecancer

My long time elderly client has taken a turn. My day job is awfully sad sometimes.

My other job is going very well. The Stranger In My Recliner is about to go into production and I cannot wait to share Sophie’s story with you.

I am going to go watch a mindless, stupid reality show because my head is about to explode from the news.

How did your week go? Seen any movies? Have you had snow?

Have a blessed weekend!

I am full of fragments.

I have always loved the thought of a brand new year. It gives us the opportunity for another chance to get it right. It is a fresh start with the promise of new possibilities.

New Year Midlife group!

Last year, John and I agreed 2014 would be about making memories one at a time and my word of the year was finish. We certainly did create a lot of memories and I finished the scrapbooks so we won’t forget. I also finished my second book. I am so excited that The Stranger In My Recliner will be going into production very soon.

We just had our first really cold day and I am ready for the beach. I am looking forward to March and bike week in Daytona Beach.

I am also looking forward to Nashville in March for the very first BAM conference. Is it cold in Nashville in March? The word I chose for 2015 is focus. I am already stressing that I am going to need an ‘f’ word for 2016.

I’m having my 8th jaw surgery next Wednesday. There were only supposed to be 8 but because of complications there will now be 11. This is one thing I really wish was finished in 2014. I can’t wait til it’s over. The good news is it is working.

Are you a Downton Abbey fan? I loved the few episodes I had a chance to see while I was in Florida with my mother and always intended to binge watch to catch up. I am finally doing that and wow have I missed a lot. I’m not sure I’ll finish before the new season starts but I’m trying.

I’m missing Son’s of Anarchy. I can’t wait to see what Charlie does next. He would make a great King Author but the plans for that are six films. That is like a lifetime. Sons of Anarchy, power couple Kurt Sutter and Katey Sagal are looking to make lightning strike twice. Katey will be involved in Kurt’s new period dram for FX, The Bastard Executioner. Will we see Charlie in this show that revolves around a warrior knight in King Edward III’s charge? I will be watching for sure.

Charlie Hunnam

What TV series are you looking forward to watching this year?

I just read that 2014 movie admissions were the lowest since 1995. I think it’s because the snacks are so disgusting and way too expensive.

Have a positive, powerful and blessed first week of 2015, Doreen

The Pope is coming to Philly! I should be super excited and yes it is very exciting but for some reason all I can think of is the traffic and the diversions. Will I go if he holds an outdoor Mass. Probably but I already know it will be a logistics mess.

I LOVE that he met with the FINALLY released Christian woman who was sentenced to death, Miriam Ibreham and her family.

I was so excited to have a post on Midlife Boulevard for the first time! Which by the way is an AMAZING community of the most talented, funny, brilliant and supportive women I have ever met (only a few in real life) but cannot wait to meet more of them in real life.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough this happened on Books is Wonderful:

http://www.booksiswonderful.com/books-by-writers-i-know/

The author of Books is Wonderful, Helene Cohen Bludman is in England right now with another MLB friend, Lois Alter Mark. They are touring the Downton Abbey Castle and doing all sorts of other dreamy things. I cannot wait to read both of their posts about the trip.

My conspiracy theory mind is spinning out of control over all of these ‘air’ disasters. Sad.

I had to have surgery to clear up a jaw infection that resulted from jaw surgery. Just ouch and a frustrating setback. It has me dragging.

Hell on Wheels will be back on AMC on August 2. I cannot Wait!

Have a Blessed Weekend,

Doreen
