Hairy Situation Nov 2016 #UseYourWords

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 is the challenge, here is 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: shave ~ no ~ razor ~ furry ~ mountain man ~ legs They were submitted by: Sarah of Not That Sarah Michelle (Thank you for such awesome words!! I needed that giggle!!) 
Originally, I had planned on writing a new chapter of Stable Layne for y'all, but then Tuesday happened, and I just don't have it in me. I want to have it in me. I want to feel normal, but I don't. I feel sad.

I feel like hate has won. A man that spoke about committing heinous acts, who doesn't pay taxes, who has lied countless times (about ridiculous things), w…

Blessings Overflowing Nov 2016 #PoetryCollaboration

This is our monthly Poetry collaboration. I will awaken in the morning. I will suck it up. I will write. For now, I'm too depressed. I just watched a man get elected, who terrifies me.

Our theme is blessings.

I will do it justice tomorrow. For now. . .

Poem 1:

My life has been full of blessings.
Blessings in the form of family I love.
Blessings in the form of friends I cherish.
Blessings in the form of children I adore.
I was blessed to receive an education.
I was blessed to be taught the love of God.
I was blessed to live in safety, nearly always.
I was blessed to have freedom of choice.
I want the same for my daughter.
I want the same for my daughter's children.
I'm scared. I'm worried. I'm nervous.
I fear the future.
I fear that the blessings will be gone.
I fear they'll be unavailable to my daughter.
We are supposed to pay our blessings forward.
I fear we've done the opposite.
I fear we took them for granted, and now they're gone.

Poem 2:

Boundless opportunities .

A Day in the Life Nov 2016 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to November's Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject of their own. Today, we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tomorrow is the start of a new day. A change for you in whatever way you want. You can try out a new profession, a new city, a new you. The catch is it's just for a day. What do you do and when tomorrow is over are you going to be happy to be back where you started.

I sat down to write this post, and I had an answer in my head, then I took a break. I wasn't feeling well, and I wanted to stretch out on the couch for a few. The next thing I knew, I was waking up two hours later. It was after 10 pm, and Chad was still up with Gigi. He let me sleep. He has to be awake at 3:30 in the morning to work, but let me sleep. So, I got up …
