Warm and Fuzzy #UseYourWords October 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked between four and six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.



My words are:

play dough ~ toilet ~ fuzzy ~ frantic ~ driving

They were submitted by: http://dinoheromommy.com (Thank you for such randomly awesome words!!!! For the record, fuzzy is my absolute most favorite word. True story. I am not really sure why. I just love it! Z is my favorite letter, so it probably helps that there are two in the word!)


On a side note... I will not even tell you guys the things Chad said, when I told him the words I was assigned this month! One of the things I love about Chad is that he is always interested in my subjects and words for our blog challenges. It is nice that he is interested in what I am doing on the blog! 



You have always made my insides feel warm and fuzzy.
With just one look or one kiss, you make my mind hazy.
I look back on the years we spent together.
All the good times and happy memories.
All the bad times and sad memories.
I am so grateful for it all.
The good times were so good,
that the bad times were worth it.
Even the night that I was driving fast,
completely frantic, worried about you.
Having got the emergency call from the nurse,
telling me to get there quick.
My mind was racing, trying to figure out what had happened.
I was hoping you were fine, but in my heart I knew.
Seeing you in the hospital bed.
Your body broken.
I knew then, even before they told me,
I knew life would never be the same.
Our bodies are not made of play dough.
We are not easily fixed.
Breaks take time to heal.
Organs are fragile.
Once the doctor told me the odds of your survival, 
I knew I wouldn't leave your side,
and I didn't. 
I stayed with you for weeks.
I only left to use the toilet,
or quickly wash up in the sink. 
I stayed with you.
Talking to you.
Telling you all I should have said while you were well.
Reiterating all I had said previously.
Letting you know my feelings and my thoughts.
Letting you know my fears and worries.
Even then, just touching your hand gave me warm and fuzzy feelings.
Even now, all these years later, I still get warm and fuzzy,
when I think of you.
I miss you.
I think I always will.
You will forever be in my heart.
You will always have a home in my life.
I know we will meet again.
Once my days are done,
I know you will be in Heaven to greet me.
I wish we had more time together here on Earth,
but regardless of how short,
I am grateful for the time we had.
You will always be my greatest love.
Forever and for always.
You'll always make my heart warm and fuzzy.

My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.


My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy ofhttp://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
