One
Published on Friday, January 30, 2015 by Today is the final day of the writing challenge, with the subject "And then there was one."  I can't tell you where this little piece came from.  Do I blame it on the 20 subjects I had to write about?  Or do I blame it on the Taco Bell taco I ate after my workout tonight.  Let's go with the taco. “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” He tossed a handful of brown...
Blue Crabs, Fried or Steamed
Published on Thursday, January 29, 2015 by Today's blog writing challenge is, "Steamed." Blue crabs. Steamed. MMMmmmmmmmm. You would think that I enjoy blue crabs quite often, living in Hampton Roads and being surrounded by water. Sadly, this is a tourist area, as is Corolla. The minute the season hits the prices for blue crabs skyrocket. We live across the street from tidal waters that are filled with bl...
I Wish Daddy Didn’t Drink So Much!
Published on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 by Today’s blog writing challenge subject is, “Imagine That.” When I saw today’s writing subject I was immediately brought back to a wonderful time in my past. I used to sit with my young kids on their beds and read bedtime stories every night. I recalled instantly that one of these books had the phrase, “Imagine That” throughout the entire story. But I cou...
The Awkward Dinner Party
Published on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 by Today’s writing challenge subject is “the awkward dinner party!” “Dad, you don’t mind that I brought my new boyfriend, do you? It’s really funny… his daughter is older than me.  We can share outfits!” “Please pass the potatoes.” “You wouldn’t believe how much better I feel after that series of colonic cleanses.” “Oh those rolls look ...
Ten Years Ago
Published on Monday, January 26, 2015 by Today’s blog challenge topic is, “10 years ago, I was probably ____.” Ten years ago, I was probably thinking I had wrinkles on my face. To me ten years ago I say, “Oh, just you wait.” Ten years ago, I was probably spending far too much time straightening the top of my hair. To me ten years ago I say, “OH MY GOSH JUST STOP IT AND LET IT GO CURLY ALL OVE...
A Frosty and Fries
Published on Friday, January 23, 2015 by Frosty is today's writing challenge subject. I don’t go to Wendy’s a lot, especially considering I am off gluten and can’t eat salads. But during the summer we would often stop on the way to Corolla. I have a confession to make. I dip hot Wendy’s French Fries in my chocolate frosty. And I won’t apologize for it. Am I the only one who loves the greasy s...
Bears, Beans and Beer
Published on Thursday, January 22, 2015 by Today's subject for the writing challenge is "Bears, Beans and Beer." I can't wait to see what everyone wrote! If a bear ate beans and drank beer, he would probably look for a porta-potty. And if he used the porta- potty, he might feel the need to wash his hands. If he washes his hands, he might begin to play with the soap bubbles. And if he plays with the soap bubbl...
My Messy Chicks
Published on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 by Today's blog writing theme subject is "Organizing." I love being organized. Sadly, my home is very far from any order whatsoever. For years I have tried. I’ll get so sick of not being able to find anything that I spend an entire week scrubbing, throwing things away and scrubbing some more. Everything in its place. Perfect. But those in my household are not so org...
And Then Dirt Flew
Published on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 by Today's writing challenge subject is "Newbies."  This is my favorite so far! They were newbies at this. While those around them raced by with glee, these two found safety near an empty bench. Dirt flew as paws dug in to the earth, propelling them forward in groups of twos and threes. Teeth gnashed with playful bites of air. Ears flew and tails wagged while the newb...
The Word for 2015
Published on Monday, January 19, 2015 by Today’s blog writing challenge subject is “Word for the Year.” RELAX. That is my word for the year. It is directed towards those who tailgate and drive too fast. It is for those who can’t put their cell phones down to place a single coffee order. It is for those who need constant electronic stimulation through their cell phones, their Sirius radios and tel...
Lessons, Regrets and Things to Ponder
Published on Friday, January 16, 2015 by Today's writing theme challenge subject is, "The Morning After." The morning after I used Henna on my hair I felt deep regret. The morning after I had my first Currituck BBQ Sliced Brisket I woke up wanting some more. The morning after the woman hit my car from behind I hurt. And I still do today. The morning after my last birthday I looked in the mirror and cur...
Dishing the Dirt
Published on Thursday, January 15, 2015 by Today's writing challenge subject is "Dishing the Dirt." She wouldn’t call it gossip. Not really. Edna liked to think she was helping others. Stepping up when others wouldn’t. Or couldn’t. She was simply giving them a little push in the right direction. “Alice Morley told her husband she was going shopping. But she went to the racetrack instead! Probably h...
