No more twinkles, no more photos

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Twinkle.”

All week I have been waiting for the meaty comment, the thought provoking idea, or the statement that could force me out of a writing funk. But no, no help from the daily post. Instead there are endless sugarry sweet pictures of lights. ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

There is only one thing to be done and that is go to work. Yep, spend the day looking at my computer and counting the minutes and seconds until the plant has a holiday shutdown. Only a few more days until the kids get home. Although they are not kids, but young adults. As mom, I always get to call them kids. And this year we have a bonus with one of the girls bringing home a friend. It is so much fun to have a full house.

But bring back the witty comments and pithy challenges. I miss my friend the daily post.



Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
