Dear Daughter…
Published on Friday, February 15, 2013 by Day 15 of the WWFC blog writing challenge asks us to write about “OR ELSE.”  OR ELSE! My daughter doesn’t read my blog.  NONE of my children read my blog.  This is probably a good thing, or else I would be in big trouble. However, I do hope that when my daughter nears 21, she will get a little curious and start to browse my old posts.  (“Gee, Mom ha...
Funny How Far The Splatter Of Strawberry Syrup Can Go When Dropped On To An Industrial Carpet
Published on Thursday, February 14, 2013 by Day 14 of the WWFC Blog Writing Challenge brings, "Where Can I Get A Good Blintz?" Laura could not stay in this room any longer.   She felt like a caged animal, alternating between sitting and pacing.  The large screen television had been playing CNN ad nauseam for hours.  The drone of perpetual top breaking stories had long since become white noise amid he...
Unintended NEEDLES!
Published on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 by Day 13 of the We Work for Cheese blog writing challenge brings us the subject, “Unintended.” When I started this writing challenge, I meant to move beyond my regular blog posts and enjoy the challenge of creative fictional writing.  Although fiction is much more difficult to create, the opportunity to create your own world is nothing short of mind-blowing. ...
Would You Tell Abraham Lincoln?
Published on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 by Day 12 of the WWFC blog writing extravaganza happens to fall on the day I have to take valium and prepare for my 11:00 back procedure…. ROUND TWO.  So I am playing the “short post” card.  I’m sure you understand! Today’s blog writing challenge theme is, “The day I met Abraham Lincoln.”  I had several ideas for this post: Write in the voice ...
ROAD TRIP!
Published on Sunday, February 10, 2013 by Day 11 of the WWFC blog writing challenge brings us the subject, “Road Trip.” Road Trip.  My two favorite weekend words.  Because Road Trip means Beach House.  And if it doesn’t, it means “Outdoor Adventure.” I cannot sit in my house for two days.  By 1:00 on Saturday, I am wandering the rooms of my house like a caged animal. And so begins... a ro...
The Mayor Was In My Bathroom
Published on Sunday, February 10, 2013 by My first thought for the Day 10 Writing Challenge phrase “the Mayor” involved Munchkins and things I just cannot talk about.  Fortunately, a true story from my past came to mind just in the nick of time. I must have been about four years old.  We lived in a small town in Texas, where crime was low and there wasn’t much for first responders to do. While m...
15 Minutes
Published on Saturday, February 9, 2013 by Day Nine of the WWFC Blog Writing Challenge.  The subject?  "15 Minutes." What can you do in 15 minutes? You can finish the bear claw your mother gave you as a special pre-Lenten treat.  Then stare at your laptop while you contemplate 15 minutes. You can glance at the TV, which is currently playing Gray’s Anatomy on demand.  And shake your head at the abs...
Lush Haiku, French Style!
Published on Friday, February 8, 2013 by *** IMPORTANT ALERT***  I wrote this and scheduled it before I saw Nicky wrote texting Haiku.  How embarrassing.  But it is late and I'm tired.  My bad, Nicky!  Day eight of the WWFC blog writing challenge brings the subject "French."  I think it is time to reveal the monkey on my back.  My addiction.  My downfall.  My name is Katherine Murray, and I am a L...
Spayshull Haven
Published on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 by “Only three to four people pass out each week.  Out of all of them, I have never had to give medication to bring them back.” I was a little nervous, but more than that, I was excited.  Excited that the cervical epidural steroid injection would get me one step closer to living without pain. By now, you certainly know who the ONE PERSON was who needed medicati...
You Better Put Out
Published on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 by Day five of the We Work for Cheese blog writing contest challenge gives us the post topic, "You Better Put Out." She couldn’t hear herself scream over the ringing in her ears.  But that really didn’t matter.  After all, the screaming stopped the instant her back hit the cold, hard ground. How many years would she still feel the scrape of a single rosebush thor...
Friendship
Published on Monday, February 4, 2013 by The little boy in preschool. The girl who sits next to you in first grade. The group of kids you hang with on your street. Your very best friend in high school. The girl who lives in the dorm room next to you. Your first roomie after college. Your new husband. Your mother. The woman across the street. And finally, as she holds your hand in your final hours, y...
Damn You, Michael Whiteman-Jones
Published on Sunday, February 3, 2013 by Day Three of the Blog Writing Challenge Brings us, "And the next thing I knew..." My plan was to write something upbeat.  Witty.  Perhaps with an unexpected twist.  I could do this.  I could write something to be proud of.  Day three of the blog writing challenge would prove to be a good one. I decided to take a quick peek at We Work For Cheese, just to be ...
