Writer’s Workshop

Post image for Writing Prompts
**If you could change anything about your pet, what would it be?
Yes they are cute and all, but…..

Dearest Matilda stop ruining my furniture and I won’t make you where the softpaws you hate so much

Dearest Ginger quit cutting the cheese under the blanket and then looking at me like I did it when you come out because you can’t breathe.

(**Oh My Goodness, my dog just let off a major fart bomb that cleared the room and now she is looking at us with her pouty face like she does not know what happened.  My son was holding his nose saying "what did she eat rotten eggs."**)

**Write a love poem to a favorite food…..
Oh Olive Garden Breadsticks how do I love thee let me count the ways….um yep that is as far as I got.  Maybe I will have more after I eat some today .

**Read the quote and let it inspire your post: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. -Maya Angelou
Oh wow that could open a can of worms, good or bad.. I totally agree with this statement.

To No one in particular ;)
Friends don’t like it when you only talk to them when it is convenient for you or show up really late every time you plan something with them.  They are more apt to just brush you off the next time you call because they remember how upset they felt at your last meeting.
 Just saying. 

Go pop over to Mama Kat and link up.

I think I may just need to move

**Not for the squeamish**

Yesterday I had to take my son to the doctor because he had a rash on his face that would not go away.  

At first we thought it was just from him not washing his face very good, but when it did not go away even after the good washings I suspected Impetigo. 

He also had complained twice of an itchy bottom so I was going to bring that up as well and after Googling it “Not Recommended” I was freaking out.


So both suspicions were confirmed he has Impetigo on his face from the cold he has had and he has pin worms……. 

That last part made my skin crawl.  I know it is normal for kids to get this, but I am completely grossed out thinking there is a worm inside him or from what she told me a worm inside me..  The whole family must be treated and all linens washed were my instructions.

After getting home and Googling what all needed to be done “Again with the Google why do I do this to myself”.  It said do not fluff the dirty laundry because they can become airborne and fly up your nose or in your mouth…..


Now I feel like they are all over me and up my nose.


So I carefully took all the sheets off and I hope none went airborne.  I mean seriously how do you take off sheets without fluffing them a little.

Anygross (nod to your terminology Short Mama @ Family of Shorts)…

Everything is laundered and we are all dosed up on our worm meds which tasted like banana chalk if you wanted to know and Bub has his cream on his face. 

Wish me luck that there are no heebeegeebees in my house or I may have to move..

On a happy note there is a great giveaway at H-Mama's

Easy To Apply


Soft Paws - Soft Claws for Cats - Large Red

Matilda hates having her toe nails cut in the first place and then to have to put these on she was not having it.

She was making noises I did not even know she knew how to make while I was trying to put these things on.

Not to mention she was squirming, trying to bite me and anything else she could think of to get away.

But I was successful on 8 of the 10 toes on her front paws, I did not do the “thumb” and I am not sure you even need too????

She is totally ignoring me now…


As you can see by the end of the video Ginger was getting jealous.

This Snuggie's For You

Here ya go Mama Kat

My FIL bought me this snuggie last year.

Do you see anything wrong with this picture?
Besides the fact I look like a dork.
It is a little girls Snuggie.

I don't think he realized he had bought me a little girls Snuggie or maybe he thought I was just way too little for one of the regular sized ones...hmmm

Yep I am going with the latter answer.

I bought a regular sized Mickey Mouse one this year and

I think he was right.

I must say I do not rock a Snuggie as good as Mama Kat

Striking fear in the hearts of all

Well maybe not all but my son and pets are not feeling it.

Here you find Ginger on mount you can't get me and Bub pretending he is invisible.

Matilda was harder to capture. I kept seeing her tail as she was dashing away from the vacuum, but I found her on the ever trust worthy hiding spot.

She ain't no fool, she knows momma is not vacuuming that.

This is also her favorite spot, which makes working out ever so difficult. 
 I have to boot her out of the room and close the door for fear she will jump on mid exercise and be a flying kitty.

Rainy Day

Today it was really nasty out so I decided to clean my planter shelves.

All together now..... Groooss

Much better but now I had to tackle can't tell in this picture, but all of these needed a good cleaning.

It took almost all day but now everything is all clean and shiny.
