Writing Workshop: Color Clash

June 8, 2011

4.) In honor of the “white” after Memorial Day rule, name a fashion rule that you either break or enforce. (inspired by Jenny at Karma Continued…) It has been a trying week. I wish I could say that it was all the wonderful high of watching T1 finish elementary school and getting the children’s awesome report cards and standardized test results (they rocked them!) but it has been marred by rude sales people, rude acquaintances, sore foot, and well, that time of the month. So this is a brief post just to keep the momentum going. I was so late last week I’m not sure too many checked it out.

PINK and RED do NOT, repeat DO NOT, go together. Just don’t do it. Not even for Valentines Day.

DH did not understand this. His attempts to dress the children usually resulted in me having to undress and change the children.

He also believes it is okay to wear mismatched socks and to wear them inside out. While the children have not resorted to mismatched socks, T1 will wear them inside out and flippantly answer “I don’t care” when I point out this error. (T1 does but is at the age where she does not want to admit she dressed herself wrong; to the point of wearing basketball shorts inside out.)

So leave your pinks and reds at the door and match your socks. Thank you.

This Week’s Prompts

1.) Last week you chose a 6 word memoir to share…this week elaborate. Tell us the story or thought process behind the sentence you wrote.
2.) Write a dramatic synopsis of a memorable day in your life, as if it was a movie or TV series. (Inspired by Alison from Mama Wants This)
3.) Describe what you think your life would be like if you had never had kids.
(inspired by Amy from Somebody’s Parent)
4.) In honor of the “white” after Memorial Day rule, name a fashion rule that you either break or enforce. (inspired by Jenny at Karma Continued…)
5.) Share a memorable road trip story!(inspired by the Crooked Little House)

Bonus Vlog Option!
Sometimes it’s hard to put yourself out there on video, but it’s a fun and different option for a post and a great way for your readers to get to know you better. The problem is many of us don’t know what to vlog about…this bonus prompt option will give you the inspiration you need to create a short video for your blog. Now to drum up the courage…
6.) Summer is here and it’s time to hit the water…will you be jumping in with the kids? How do you feel about prancing around in your swimsuit?

  1. AND I’M A STINKING DAY EARLY! This is going to be a LONG LONG week!!!!

  2. I so understand about the sock thing. My kids drive my crazy with the mismatched socks. They don’t seem to care whether they are even the same length or color. And one even walks around the house with one sock on and one off. Drives me batty! I know I shouldn’t stress about such petty things but it really does gripe me. Just match your freaking socks! How hard is it?
