Cute Dog with a Side of Cat Videos #FunnyFriday April 2016

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they have come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted bySouthern Belle Charm

1. Dog to owner: So this is what you do all day? Really? Cat videos? Et tu Brute?

2. Dog to owner: That video got 3 million views?! I am way cuter than that cat! Okay. Okay. You can start recording me. We will be on Ellen in no time.

3. Owner to Dog: One more video and then it is my turn.
Dog to owner: But mom, I just need five more minutes.
Owner to Dog: You said that two hours ago.
Dog to owner: I am serious this time.
Owner to dog: If you don't give me my computer back after this video, tomo…

Unexpected Losses #UseYourWords April 2016

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to 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’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Shell ~ Basket ~ Toilet Paper ~ Red ~ Wreath ~ Plaque They were submitted by:  (Thank you for such an interesting group of words, and I genuinely apologize for not doing them the justice they deserve!)

I have been in the habit of writing poetry using the words I am assigned, but since our monthly poetry collaboration posted earlier this week, I decided to go a different route this month. 

If you follow my Facebook page, then you know I lost someone very special to me earlier this week. It was very unexpected. H…

National Poetry Month April 2016

If you have been around for the past few months, you have probably caught on, that my friends and I like to share poetry with you all once a month. This month happens to be National Poetry Month, and we decided to have that be our theme. Poetry as a theme for poetry. I don't know about you, but I love poetry. All types of poetry. I love to write, and can honestly say that poetry is probably my most favorite thing to write. I have written at least a thousand poems over the years. So, I really do enjoy these monthly poetry shares. I hope you do to! I will post the links to the contributions from my friends at the end. Be sure to check them out! 

Here is my contribution for this month. I hope you enjoy. 

Poem 1 (Razor to My Soul):

I did it again.
I fell prey to you again.
I shouldn't be shocked.
I shouldn't be surprised.
This is just history repeating itself again.
Chances are this won't be the last repeat.
I don't know how it happened-
how you got so deeply embedded under my s…

Crisis, Crisis!! Read All About It #SecretSubjectSwap April 2016

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week fourteen 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: How do you handle a crisis? Do you fall apart or remain calm? It was submitted by:
(Thank you for the fantastic subject!!)

I actually do really well in crisis situations. I think it is probably a blessing. I actually suffer from horrible anxiety, so you would think I would do horribly, but somehow I manage to hold it together. Now, once the crisis is over, that is another story entirely. That is when I lose it. That is when my cool as a cucumber status ends and my OH EM GEE AHH AHHH AHHH status begins! 

I actual am quite proud of myself. I do get borderline upset, if Gigi gets upset, but I always manage to hold it together. I know I find my strength in the fact she needs me. Yes, I al…
