Writer's Workshop...my very first

Hanging around with Mamakat and her Writer's Workshop this week...I haven't done one of these since Mrs. Welcome's English class in high school!

Prompt: Describe a time when you had difficulty communicating with someone who speaks a different language than you.

Ummm...I don't know what you're saying.

I don't know what you're saying either.

Oh God...how am I going to do this?

Okay. (sigh) Try. Try again. You can do this...you need this.

Okay, good...stay on...stay on...be happy...stay on.

Okay, your turn.

There you go...you're doing it!

Oh no...I lost you.

Come on...please. I don't know how to make you do this.

Good...keep it up...ahhhh...this is nice. Well, as nice as this can get, right?

Oh, you're finished already?

Okay...what do I do now?

What? What are you so upset for? It's okay!

What do you want? What do you need? I don't get it. I don't understand...

Please tell me...when will you be able to tell me what you need? I can't stand this. I can't do this. I am getting desperate. I just don't know anything!!!

No, you are not going to cry...I will do something.

What can I do? I'm stuck! I'm totally stuck! I have to keep trying.

I'm broken...I'm still broken. I thought after all of this, I'd be fixed, but I'm not.

I can't do anything right.

I need help. There's no one here. There's no one to call. I don't know what to do.

Okay, deep breath.

One step at a time. One then the next. That's the way it has to be. One then the next.

There is no other way.

There you go...you're fine...okay, now you're fine. Okay, now I'm fine. We're fine...we're all fine.

It passed...the horrible hopeless moment passed.

I can do this. I can do this for the rest of my life. One and then the next. That's how it will be.

What's next?

I can do this. One and then the next...


Mama's Losin' It

Putting Away the Groceries...at least that's what I think they were doing...who knows???

Mommmmm...we have to unload the groceries NOW!!! It doesn't matter that I don't have any pants on...let's get it done!!!!!!!


Okay, start with the dairy items...there is a science to this.



See this orange star? We don't need this! TOSS!!!



What is this? How did this get in our cart? Were you trolling the candy aisle again???



See this orange thing??? Outta here! TOSS!!! We don't need it! Nothing orange!!!



Time for a stretch break!



Strike a pose...



Show a little leg...



What? We didn't do this...we were just putting the groceries away! We would never do this intentionally!



Hmmm...is this what I was looking for? Nah...it's orange...we know what happens to orange things, right??? TOSS!!!



This is it! I was looking for this fake potato! I found it!!!!




Somehow all of this ended up in the sink. Maybe I need to leave a post-it note for the Crazies too. They're out of control!!!
