PLEASE participate


It’s not like I’m asking you to eat two turkeys while wearing a Jason mask and singing Jingle Bells at the same time.





Welcome to NOVEMBER 1!


Today’s prompt is:  What will you be doing Thanksgiving day?   

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, I’ll share a vignette with you:




daughter, mom, son circa 1992

I’ll be in Oklahoma spending time with my daughter, her family, my son, his family, and my ex (husband number 3).  No house is going to be big enough to contain that amount of chaos.

As usual, I’ll ask for a sleeping bag on the floor, since no bed is comfortable to me.  There’s something about being that close to the earth – it helps me feel grounded.  My baby girl is always so sweet, so concerned for my well-being, and asks me to at least try to sleep on a bed.  It takes a lot of convincing to wrest that sleeping bag from her instead.

Every time I visit my daughter, I catch something.   Wish me luck, and good health.

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. It ends on the 1st Thursday of the next month.  

  2. Copy and paste your 120 word entry into the reply section below, along with a link to your blog.  To me, everyone who enters is a winner, but if you must have a winner, the entry with the most likes wins.  

  3. Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. When/if you publish your entry on your blog, use the #TMAT120 picture to show that you are participating in the prompt. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. They’ll be edited out if you do, and you might not like the words I choose to replace them with.  🙂 

  6. Take time to read other people’s #TMAT120 & their posts, after all you might make a new friend.
