100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Lizard


100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Lizard

I’m not particularly fond of lizards. Thankfully there are not a lot of them in New Jersey. I have occasionally found one around here, but thankfully not many. My son, now living in North Carolina, has sent me pictures of lizards. When he was a child, he did try to raise lizards, but they kept dying in the tank he had to keep them in.

Now when we visited Florida, the house we stayed in, had a huge screened in yard so they could keep their house open but didn’t have to worry about lizards and other creatures getting in.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Denial


100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Denial

I am usually in denial when it comes to writing a story. I don’t like the happy endings so many people who read look for in whatever they are reading.

The way I figure it, life is not always a happy ending. Most of my life is not happy endings as will be part of my memoir. Don’t get me wrong, there will be some happy stuff as my entire life wasn’t a disaster either.

You can’t convince me that someone, doesn’t have a plan for me, but I am not thinking it is going to be a happy one.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Speak


100 Word Challenge: This week’s word is Speak

Last week the word was boxes and just this week I find myself putting another small appliance box away just in case. My medical supplies take up a lot of room because as I use them more come in to replace them. I live in a small apartment and as I speak about the apartment size people can’t visualize it until they see it.

It is more than enough room for me except for the storage of all my medical supplies which are constantly growing. I now have an empty box for my nebulizer. I just can’t throw it away.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Boxes


100 Word Challenge: This week’s word is Boxes

I have this thing with boxes myself. I keep everyone I get that something came in because I just might need it for something. Whether it is for mailing things or storing things the end result is the same. Piles of useless boxes. I used to keep every shoe box, I stopped that for a while and then my friend talked me into buying the plastic ones. So, I have a ton of them now and have restarted my cardboard shoebox collection. This apartment has rules about being tidy and right now it looks like a tornado ran through here.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word ESCAPE


100 Word Challenge : This week’s word is ESCAPE

Wedding Cake

There are days even weeks or longer where I need to escape my life. I just can’t tolerate the real world anymore. If it’s bad, reading won’t work because I simply won’t be able to get into a book. I have many around here I have started, but not finished.

I can binge tv shows on Netflix and lose myself in something. The hours go by and I rarely notice it. I can also binge on DIY shows, flipping houses and cooking shows even though I hate to cook. I love the baking shows with fancy cakes and cupcakes. Yum!

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word Holy


100 Word Challenge : This week’s word is HOLY

The Bible

Several years ago, I decided it was time to come back to my faith in the Lord. For forty years I had let my faith in him go. I blamed him for my whole lousy, stinking life. Everything was his fault. I just couldn’t understand how a supposedly kind and loving God could let so much sadness and strife go on in this world. I made myself promise to read the Holy Bible again. Like so many promises in this life, I screwed this one up too. Needless to say, I never read it. I got maybe halfway through Genesis.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word interruption


100 Word Challenge : This week’s word is Interrupted

Now that I have become obsessed with writing my memoirs, I hate being interrupted. Since you write a memoir as a piece of your life it’s possible to write more than one. I have been currently writing a segment starting with my marriage to my now ex-husband and his joining the Marine Corps. It runs through until we finally decided to call our marriage quits and went for the divorce. It has been 20 years since the day it was final. Now I am trying to decide whether to write two or try to incorporate my childhood into this one.
