Writer's Workshop Wednesday - Speakin' my mind

It is that time again. Mama Kat is on the loose, it is Writer's Workshop Wednesday.

The Prompts:

1.) Tell us about a lie you told that you later regretted.

2.) Choose a task you'd like someone to complete and write a poem asking them to do it.

3.) Describe a talent you have.

4.) Write a list of ten things on your mind this week.

I choose prompt # 4.....Write a list of 10 things on your mind this week.

1. Need to run.

2. Must file papers away and clear some space on my desk, so that you can actually see the desktop.

3. Need to go to the grocery, fridge is looking a little bare even though I just did a Costco run yesterday.

4. Need to put fuel in my truck, have about 7 miles til empty. Hmm......maybe I can get hubby to fill me up that way I don't have to.

5. Still waiting to hear from the county guy about a new fence proposal, maybe I should put in a call to him.

6. I'm debating whether I should tell my mom I will be in town with the boys or just avoid it. Erika, if you read this don't tell....shhhhh. Maybe I'll invite her to lunch. It is one of those things "do I or don't I?" I'll figure it out.

7. Still need to make the Jerome Bars for the "cookie of the week".

8. Need to start making the apron for the gift swap I am doing.

9. So close to finishing my end of the taxes before we take it in to the "tax guy", again something I need to finish. However I am in procrastination mode because our "tax guy" always files and extension an even if we DO get money back it will probably be by way of an IOU since our state is incapable of running the place on a budget.....maybe they need to take some lessons from private citizens who are held accountable for money decisions, made poorly or otherwise.

10. So dreading dinner if Hubby isn't home - it is always mayem when daddy is away.

So, if you want more go check out the other participant's over at Mama Kat's.

lol...did hubby put in the gas? Still debating lunch with mom? and WHY is it things look empty after we go shopping?

Wow, you do have a list of things to get done? My head is spinning! I'm glad I didn't choose that prompt because I'd scare myself if I wrote it all down.

The Cookie Girl said...

LOL I know one task you completed!
I am so happy you liked the recipe. I will have to try the chocolate next time. Did you use milk chocolate or semi sweet?

PS It is cookie of the week LOL
Don't feel obligated to do them on a particular day. I just had time on Monday. There will be weeks when it will be hard to make anything at all. :)

This is a great list..and I love the thoughts talking yourself into getting someone else (hubby) to do items. I do the same thing!

And those ladybug shots down below are gorgeous! I'm assuming you took those?

Grand Pooba said...

Too much to do, too little time!

I hope your mom doesn't read your blog :)

Mama Wheaton said...

I hate tax season, ever year I say I will get everything more organized and then I run away looking for numbers. I think everything is all together now. Good luck with Buck!

tara @ kidz said...

Yikes! You need a day off girl!

Debbie said...

So how many did you get done? That is quite a list:)

Momma said...

Sturgmom said...

VIsiting from SITS. But I think I need to go lie down now after reading your to-do list. You're one BUSY woman!

Aunt Spicy said...

Really, taxes? Sigh, I was hoping to procrastinate but now that you mention it maybe I should get started!
