Mama Kat's Assignment

Mama Kat over at Mama's Losin It does these prompts for Thursdays to help keep the writing juices flowing. Which this week is a life savers. i have this cold given to me by my loving number one son. When I get sick I get the whole schabang (sp). I haven't even read blogs lately, hurts the head.

I am choosing to do 5.) Welcome to the most shocking rose ceremony in writing prompt history. Please award roses to the ten people (or items) in your life that you’d like to continue pursuing a relationship with.

1. My first rose would go to my husband. I think being married is always a work in progress. It is also something that must be actively pursued in order to stand the test of time.

2. Second - would be my daughter Jasmine. At 18 yo we are struggling to make the transition from child to adult and from parent to a friend.

3. Third - would be my daughter Savanna. At 17yo we have drifted apart and while I am sure we will find some middle ground eventually, right now tough love is the only way to go.

4. Fourth - would be my daughter Laurie and my granddaughter Ava. Being over 5000 miles away it is hard to maintain a relationship. It takes more effort than I would have thought. It is easy for both of us to get caught up in our own lives and forget about those not near us.

5. Fifth - My boys. 14, 13 and 10. They are a handful, two handfuls. I love and adore them more each day. I only hope that I can do right by them.

6. Sixth - My firend Darlene. We have been friends for a long time and have seen each other through a lot of ups and downs. But being friends, good friends takes work and time. It easy to assume that friendships are just a natural part of your life and not give them the attention they deserve.

7. Seventh - Myself. I want to actively pursue knowing myself better. I want to let go of the weight and the being scared to try new things.

8. Eighth - Blogging. I want to be a better blogger. I want to be more creative in the blogs I write.

9. Nineth - Debt. I want to pursue being closer to being out of debt. We are on the right track and there is a light at the end of the tunnel, we just need a bit more to get us there.

10. Tenth - Lastly I would like to pursue my career. I thought I wanted to be a teacher but lately I have been having second thoughts. I would like to pursue clarity about what I am doing in college and where I want to be when I'm done.


  1. I liked your "rose" ceremony Mama Wheaton! I bet your kiddos would get a kick out of it too.

  2. I'm glad that you gave yourself a rose (and you didn't come last on the list). Most of the time, we moms forget to take care of ourselves.

    I understand the second thoughts about a career...I still don't know what I want to be, other than a princess.

  3. I liked your rose ceremony, particularly the idea of giving yourself a rose!

  4. This was a great idea and you really thought your rose selections out carefully. Great job!

    Now if only we could get The Bachelor to choose properly!
