This weeks prompt is “Bump in the night” how appropriate right?
Here’s a short little poem
The lights are out
What could it be?
Or something else?
You try to talk yourself out of it
“there’s nothing to be worried about”
You say even though you know
That it’s that time of year
And anything can happen
Head on over to Sunday Scribblings and check out some of the other posts.
Long time no blog, lol. This weeks prompt is CHEESE.
Everyone says cheese when they take a picture. WIth the kids it seems easier to get the funny/cute picture if I can get them to say something funny so now it’s “applesauce” or “Halloween” or ” cherries”. When they do I get pictures like this.
Not bad huh?
This weeks prompt is Confession. I have a confession, a lot actually.
- I confess that I don’t want to get up most mornings. I want to stay in bed, at least for a couple of hours.
- I confess that most of the time kids annoying me
- I confess that I don’t want to be judge but seem to judge other people
- I confess that I do speed sometimes in the car but never more than 5 miles over
- I confess that I love my dog enough to buy her clothes, if she really needs it
- I confess that I am still afraid of the dark and it’s not just from all the scary movies I’ve watched
- I confess that I like my stepfather better than my father
- I confess that I love watching movies alone and with a full bowl of popcorn
- I confess that I love to go out to eat but I hate to eat in front of people.
This weeks prompt is Celebrate. There are a lot of things to celebrate this month for me. We have Easter and Earth Day and those are big thigns, more the Earth Day then anything. There is also the car shows this month, one here in town and in the town over. The Farmer’s Market is opening soon which means lost of grilling and fresh foods for us. I love this time of year. It’s so easy to be happy and free……. as long as you don’t mind the wind, lol.
It’s been a long time (again) since I have done one but here goes. This weeks prompt is Aging, which is kinda good timing since I have just had a birthday two weeks ago.
I don’t mind the aging part, you know getting older and wiser, that’s all well and good for me. The part that I mind is the gray hairs and using the phrase’s , “When I was younger” and “I did that about 10 years ago”. It didn’t bother me so much before but now it’s starting to sound funny to me. I mean just the other day I was saying to a friend that I hadn’t done something in “like 10 or 15 years”. I’m only 33 I shouldn’t be saying that!!! I was at the store the other day and Time Bandits was on the shelf on sale. I remember watching that when it first came out and that was in 1981 so I was what, 5 yrs old? But I remember watching it when it was on TV like TBS or something so even that would put it around the early-mid 90’s. The cashier looked at me like I was crazy. He said that I was the second person to say that that day. Talk about aging yourself, lol.
Even though it’s not Sunday anymore I thought I would still post this weeks prompt. This week’s prompt is Pilgrimage.
Since I am not religious and religion is what comes to mind when I think of pilgrimage I am going to talk about what places I have to go to. When I lived in CA and went to the mall I had to go to Mrs. Field’s. They had the best cookies and there was no way that I was going to the mall without having one of their cookies even brownies for that matter.
Bookstores. Any bookstore really. I don’t really care what bookstore I go to I just need to be in one to enjoy the books.There are a few places that I love to go to.
This weeks prompt for H O T is “Three things”
I learned quite a few things in 2008. I learned that I have a lot of patience for kids. A LOT. I worked volunteered at a learning center since the middle of summer and have been dealing with a lot kids. Some of them are good kids but a lot of them just have no home training at all.Which takes us to the second thing I have learned.
I learned that I am a pretty good mom. I have learned a lot of things about myself and how to handle Savie. She is a great kid but when I step back and look at how she behaves in public and at home. She doesn’t act us as much as some of the kids at school.Which takes us to number three.
The influence the media has on our kids. We have had to tell some of the kids not to bring certain things to school. It A lot of what is on the Disney Channel is not ok, like Hannah Montana. Most of the other stuff is ok in small doses. The way the media takes a good educational show like Dora, Diego, Thomas the Tank, and others like that and use then to sell sugar-fied yogurt and cereal’s. There is a sugar limit. Most of the kids have been given the paperwork that says what foods are ok to bring and what-not but there are still the ones that send their kids, mind you they are 3 and 4 yrs old, with pudding, a Twinkie, a jelly sandwich, and a Capri Sun. That is a lot of sugar, way more then they really need. Very few get fruits like apples slices, banana’s, or maybe an orange or veggies for that matter like, celery, cucumbers, or carrots (wow those were all “c” foods, lol).
What did you learn last year? What do you want to learn this year?
