Writer's Workshop: ALL ASSIGNMENTS

Mama's Losin' It

This week's assignments are:

1.) If you could do it over again...

Oh WOW!! I would have NEVER gone out with narcissist jerk... much less MARRIED him!! Of course then I wouldn't have Stitch Kid... and even though he loves to give me a challenge now and then, I wouldn't trade him for ANYTHING!!  ;D

2.) If you were put in "time out", where would you want to be placed and why?
In the office... DUH!! That's where my computer is!! I can get a LOT accomplished!!  ;p

3.) Steppin outside the box (describe a time when you went way out of your comfort zone)
(inspired by Sherri from Matter Of Fact)

Going on TREK!! WOW! Definitely out of my comfort Zone... but it was GOOD!  ;D

4.) A long drive...
(inspired by Lindy from Lindy And Ree)

  • Several times UT to FL or vice versa. (Yeah... 6 times... Northern Ut - Florida Panhandle one way, or the other... NOT a short ride...)
  • Then when my dad died and we drove from Panama City, FL to NJ had the funeral and then drove to Cape Coral, FL... That was NOT a good experience!! *sigh*
  • When hubby and I, his sister, Brother and sister-in-law were all piled into his truck and drove to SoCal like sardines just after I had a tail-bone injury. The was a LONG 11 hours!

I actually want my family to hitch up the trailer and go back to my old stomping ground in FL!! Take our time and have our hotel/bathroom/kitchen on wheels!! Maybe next summer!! Or Spring... ?

5.) Describe the first date you went on in a boy's car.
(inspired by Lori from The Peterson Family)

To homecoming '84/5. The school was around the corner from our house. He was only allowed to take me right TO the dance (at the school) and right home again!

Well done Holly! That was fantastic! Totally different.

All I could manage was the long drive. I took way too long to describe it.

That's where I'd want my time out- wherever my computer was :)

Thumbs up for hitting them all! Enjoyed your answers!

Trek is DEFINITELY outside the box. If the box has indoor plumbing, a soft bed and ice cold Dr. Pepper. See? You can do hard things!
