This should come as absolutely no surprise, but the prompt I chose for this week's Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop is "Write a blog post inspired by the word: vintage.".
My apologies for Thursday's post showing up on Sunday. It's been a pretty hectic past two weeks, which shows no sign of letting up soon.
July is typically not a good month for me, mental health-wise. It never has been. And while some years are better than others and nearly all years have come with wonderful things happening in July, I always seem to be in varying stages of exhaustion and general dysfunction. Thankfully, this has been a mild one thus far, despite being quite challenging.
One of the themes for this week's Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop was so timely, and while certainly not specific to me, is indeed perfect for me: "List the top 5 musicians you would see in concert."
Surprise! It's almost a day late!
The prompt I chose for this week's Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop "Share the most recent image you published on Facebook or Instagram and give us the back story."
I'm having a really hard time drawing inspiration from the writing prompts this week - not because of the prompts themselves, but my mind is cluttered and I"m currently watching YouTube videos of how to replace a toilet tank's fill valve...
It's been a tiring few days.
I'm getting used to a much-needed and appreciated extra hour per shift at my job.
I also spent the past three days coming home exhausted to taking care of all three dogs while both sons were out of state visiting family. That might not sound exhausting, but some of you may remember an incident I blogged about last summer...
...on 06.19.2020, because me and my wishy-washy ways.
I couldn't decide which of the prompts to write about this time around. It was between Something someone said recently that made you think and Write about a show you recently binge watched. And truth is, I've been thinking a lot about what's being said by other people lately. I've also binge watched a lot of tv lately, and at the time I'm typing out this sentence, I'm still trying to decide which show, of all the shows that I've binge watched lately, that I want to write about. If I choose to write about that.
I'm doing a sort-of double dip this week: Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous June and write! and that kind of ties in with Write a list of 5 things you do for FUN. Except I'm only listing ONE thing I do for fun, as, like I said, it ties in with my Throwback Thursday.
Wow, can you believe it's June ALREADY? Half the year gone, ALREADY? Now, I know you're probably thinking "This has been a hell of a bad year, it needs to hurry up and be over NOW!" or something of the sort. And I hear you! This year was supposed to be MY year. I'm getting the weight off I've so desperately needed to lose, the one-year anniversary of my aunt's death has come and gone - meaning I'm closer to the finish line of getting out from under the house and the estate, and OMG, this was going to be such a good year for music! I had SO MANY concerts planned.
This week has been absolutely exhausting, so for me, it's all about coming home at the end of the day (or night) and jumping into jammies and doing as much or as little as I can, and indulging in some self-care. The theme I chose for this week's Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop is "List 7 things that bring you comfort."
Here we go:
