How has it been a week already since Mama Kat’s last writing prompt? Sometimes I see some of her prompts and I’m chomping at the bit to answer them, others I know I’m not ready to put into a post. Then there are some, like this weeks that I’m not really sure what to say about any of them.
So, I figured I would talk about what it was like when I was younger. Because it has something to do with our future.
When I was younger, we used to move all the time. =/ And I do mean ALL. The. Time.
I came home and lived at home until I graduated. It was the longest we’d lived anywhere. We lived in the same house 3 glorious years. Then my parents decided to move to Virginia. No way, I wasn’t moving away from friends. I stayed in Washington, but actually ended up moving quite a bit.
Finally, I finally moved to Minnesota and lived in the same house for 8 yrs. It was so amazing to be so rooted in one place. We ended up having to move, but it was only a few miles away. Nothing changed other than the house. Kids still went to the same school.
Did you move a lot as a kid? Was as it as hard for you as it was for me when I was younger?
(I’d love to share some real life pictures, but I really don’t have any from my childhood. I’ve made up for it in spades with my own kids! HA!)
Writing Prompts:1.) Tell us about the moment you knew your spouse was “The One”. I can’t wait to tell this story!
2.) Write something that begins and ends with the words “When I was younger”. (inspired by writingfix.com)
3.) We’re too old to be getting in trouble…aren’t we? Write about a time you were scolded…as an adult. Scold ME? For real? lol
4.) Write a poem from the perspective of your child’s favorite toy. I don’t think so!
5.) Who do you have to thank? Following Jimmy Fallon’s famous thank you note writing style, write or vlog a list of 10 thank you cards you’d like to write this week. I’m not brilliant enough for this.
