Fractious Friday

28 Sep

What started out as a delightful day turned into a fractious Friday. (New word for me) I woke up a little concerned about more leg pain and tightness in my chest. I tried to brush it off, but friends and family suggested that I call my doctor. Her office called back and set up appointments at Baylor Hospital for some tests. The good news is, they let me go home and I didn’t end up in the ER like in July. Yes, it was troublesome, and I will still worry until I find out the results on Monday, but I took action and got checked out. Who knows what could have happened? Therefore, I feel truly blessed.

1 : tending to be troublesome : unruly
2 : quarrelsome, irritable
frac·tious·ly adverb
frac·tious·ness noun
Origin: fraction (discord) + -ous.
First use: 1714



The sad part is some folks won’t get this. Now, that’s trouble!

    I’m so glad you got it checked-out. Pain is there for a reason. Listen to it. Love, Jo

    About the trouble with fractions quote : 1/3 of the public understands fractions pretty well ; 1/3 know something about them ; but the other half don’t know anything about them at all .

      Let’s see, 1/3 plus 1/3 plus 1/2= hmmm! least common denominator is 6 thus 2/6 plus 2/6 plus 3/6= 7/6. Yep, still doesn’t add up. I taught one whole year of 7th grade math in the 80’s. And I still remember that.

    I still use my fingers to count too. That’s what they’re there for.

      That is so sweet. I just started blogging January 1st because I challenged myself to share my joy, trials, tribulations and inspiration for an entire year. I never expected to meet so many wonderful writers, readers and friends. A wonderful experience. Thanks again.
