Friday Fragments / Friday Freewrite

Got lots of little things you need to get off your mind, but can’t NOT mention them? Mrs. 4444 at Half Past Kissing Time and Sarah at Ordinary and Awesome  give us the chance to get it all out there!

Friday Fragments? is the Chronicles of My Ordinary and Awesome Life, Family, and Thoughts. is the Mostly Wordless Wednesday headquarters as well as the home to several original awards and memes.
  • I started using my phone to take notes for Friday Fragments/Freewrite.  It has a little note pad feature I can keep adding on to.  There have been plenty of times I have thought I should remember this for Friday and then can’t think of a thing to say by the end of the week!!
  • Have you ever brushed your teeth in the shower? I had forgotten how satisfying this really is.  I know it sounds weird, but I think my teeth get cleaner! My room mate in college used to do it all the time and I thought it was totally strange.  Then I tried it, attempting to save some time.  I don’t know if it's the inhibition of making a complete mess or what, but I swear I do a better job in the shower.  Seriously. Try it.
  • *Potential TMI alert* I caught a cold the beginning of last week and my right ear felt a bit closed up.  I chalked it up to the congestion and let it go.  Then I woke up one morning and my ear was completely blocked.  I realized it wasn’t my cold.  I have always had problems with my ears getting plugged up with wax, but its really been years since this has happened.  Having been to the clinic many times in the past, I figured I could take care of it myself.  I dug out the largest syringes I could find (kid’s oral meds) and fashioned a loop out of craft wire.  I flushed my ear and eventually got out the big cork of wax.  It was as if someone had turned the volume back on in the world.  But now my ear hurts….. I may need to go in anyway. sigh.
  • It has been so chilly in the mornings these last couple of days that I actually busted out a pair of socks to wear in the house.  My feet haven’t seen socks outside of work for about 4 months.
  • Max received a couple of turkey feathers during the trip to the orchard Wednesday.  He took it upon himself to learn how to fly.  Good luck, there, Max…

Oh-ma-gosh! I brush my teeth in the shower as an actual routine. I haven't brushed my teeth over a sink in years and years. I have a toothbrush with my toothpaste in the shower. Scott thinks it is so weird. I got him to do it once, but he said he didn't like brushing with hot water. I can't stand brushing with cold water. It feels so gross to me. lol

Happy FF!

My husband brushes his teeth in the shower, and I think it's so weird! :)

Max is so cute! I have never brushed my teeth in the shower. Do you keep your toothpaste and brush in there all the time? I'll have to try it and see. ;)

I've thought about brushing my teeth in the shower but I wouldn't be able to leave the toothbrush in the shower...I would be too afraid that something mold/mildew would begin to grow on it. Is that weird?

I used to brush in the shower cause it felt like a time saver. Now we have a tiny shower and somehow brushing in it would feel like I'm licking the stall walls. Yuck

I brush my teeth in the shower sometimes, but not always.

I never had problems with my ears until I moved to a humid climate. Now I swear they go on wax building overload! DRIVES ME CRAZY!

What's up, Brilliant?! I'm going to have to copy you and taking notes on my phone.
