Figuring It Out As I Go…











{April 11, 2007}   Three Word Wednesday

Welcome to 3WW, brought to us by he who loves his baseball! This weeks words are:
Lost
Waves
Lined

I’d been feeling lost for a while. Not sure where life was going. Not sure if this was at all what I thought when I was a kid and so anxious to grow up. The best way to clear my mind has and always will be, going to the ocean. So I opened the sunroof, turned the stereo up, and put the pedal to the metal!
As I got closer and closer to the ocean, the highway became lined with huge trees. The kind I can’t help but stop and take pictures of, forever trying to perfect a picture of bark! The smell of the air was amazing, and I was reminded yet again why the open road has always appealed to me!
I hopped back into my car, and before I knew it, the ocean was layed out before me, the waves crashing onto the cliffs. Instantly I felt at peace. All the stress I’d been feeling gone. Washed away by the waves…

Welcome to 3WW, brought to us by he who eats, sleeps and breathes baseball.

Todays words are:
Miles
Voice
Holding

I had nothing but the memory of his voice, keeping me awake as the miles melted away, taking me closer and closer to my love, who will forever be holding my heart in his hands.

So, did you play??

Welcome to 3WW, brought to us by Bone.
Today’s words are Easily, Type and Shattered.

I thought I would easily bounce back from my surgery. When my doctor told me he was taking me off work for a week and a half, I figured I’d be fine by Tuesday or Wednesday and just enjoy my free days off. HA. Boy was I wrong! I get all pale and shaky if I’m up for too long, I still can’t breathe or taste, and I’m still sleeping sitting up. I go back to the doc today, so we’ll see what he says. He’s not the type to pull punches or pussy foot, so I trust what he tells me. If he says I can’t go back to work on Monday though, I’ll be shattered! Staying home and still feeling icky is getting old! I’m ready to get on with my life, and enjoy my sunroof 🙂

There you have it! So, did you play?


{February 28, 2007}   Three Word Wednesday

Welcome to 3 Word Wednesday, brought to us by Bone! Today’s words are tile, scarce, and lieu.

She walked through her new condo. The first home that was truly hers…well, the banks, but either way! She loved it!! It was hers, and it symbolized so many things. It was the start of her new life!

As she walked through the rooms, smiling, she realized the rooms were quite scarce. She was going to have to start hitting the flea markets to see what she could turn from drab to fab! The first thing that would have to go would be that god-awful tile in the entryway!!

She went to one of those big chain home improvement stores, hoping to find some nice marble or something. Something pretty, but not too expensive. The first thing that caught her eye was the beautiful laminate wood flooring! And it was so much cheaper than the pretty marble she thought she wanted!!

After many calculations, and a promise of no interest financing for 18 months, she decided to redo her entire condo, and use the wood flooring in lieu of carpet and tile! Oh she couldn’t wait to get it home and get started!

Each week, Bone will post three random words. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write something using all of those words. It can be a few lines, a story, a poem, anything. This is a writing exercise. It doesn’t have to be perfect. The idea is to let your mind wander and write what it will.

Be sure to leave a comment if you participate.

This week’s words are:
Secretary
Noose
Heel

At 5 minutes to 5pm, my phone rang. I hesitated before picking it up, knowing my neck would be in a noose if I was late to my sons baseball practice again! On the fourth ring, I picked up, hoping it was simply a telemarketer or wrong number. The voice on the other end was neither; it was one of our biggest customers. He said he hadn’t received the paperwork I’d promised him would be overnighted yesterday, and was taking his business elsewhere. Before I could get a word out, he slammed the phone down in my ear.
Without thinking, I stormed out of my office, straight to my secretary! “Did you send those papers to George?” I saw them laying on her desk as I asked.
“No, I was just going to drop them off on my way home today.” She replied.
“Those were NOT your instructions! I specifically told you to overnight them yesterday. We’ve now lost our biggest account! Where do you think your paycheck comes from??”
She calmly looked at me, stood up and walked around her desk, facing me. “You know what?” She said, “I’m DONE! You treat me like dirt, and you talk to me like I’m not worth the scum on your shoes! Yes, I make mistakes, as do you, but no one yells at you and talks to you like the scum of the earth when you do! Someday, someone’s going to knock you down a notch or two. I won’t be here when they do though. I QUIT!!”
With that, she turned on her heel and walked out…

Welcome to Three Word Wednesday, courtesy of Bone. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write something using all of the words. It can be a few lines, a story, a poem, anything. This is a writing exercise. It doesn’t have to be perfect. The idea is to let your mind wander and write what it will. I’ll also attempt to write something using the same three words.

This week’s words are:
Snapped
Hill
Leather

As he walked away from her, she felt something deep inside her snap! She was done, done with him, done with her job, and done with this town! She went into her room, slammed the door, grabbed her leather suitcase, and started throwing clothes in there. Nothing specific, some undergarments and jeans, sweaters and shirts. When she was done, some of her anger was spent, and all that was left in its place was a sense of defeat. She wasn’t able to make it work, again. She was moving on, again…
She walked over to the window seat and looked out at the hill that she would never see in full bloom again.
But it was ok. It was all going to be better soon, because it’s much less lonely to be alone, than lonely with someone…

Per Bone…here we go, my first Three Word Wednesday 🙂

Today’s words:
Net
Lock
Flipped

As I was surfing the net at work today, taking a break from all the training, I was saddened to know that I actually wanted to keep working. How pathetic is that?? Must be new job syndrome 🙂

So I put my internet on lock down, and got back down to business, pounding out work like I’d been doing it for years!

My boss came over at the end of the day, and flipped out, unable to believe how quickly I’m picking up everything 🙂 What a way to end the day!!
