My Favorite Quote

This week has kind of gotten away from me somehow. I'm not even sure how it happened. I haven't had more than usual on the calendar, more errands to run, more responsibilities. Although, I did have some changes in the rules on Twitter and a few computer issues that kept me tied up for hours… Continue reading My Favorite Quote

My Proudest Moment

It's week 12 of my personal blog challenge, and this week's prompt is My Most Proud Moment. Goodness! How do you pick just one? Do I pick the moment I became a mom for the first time, or for the second? Do I pick the moment I turned from an ordinary mom into an Ooma… Continue reading My Proudest Moment

If I Won the Lottery

It's week 11 of my personal blogging challenge, and this week's prompt is If I Won the Lottery. I skipped last week. I'm sure you all noticed. I'm sure you were all desperately disappointed. I blame Hurricane Nate. Or maybe I blame the fact that I wasn't overly enthusiastic about this topic. I mean, I'm never going… Continue reading If I Won the Lottery

And They Call it Puppy Love…

Welcome to week #10 of my personal blog challenge. This week's prompt is to discuss my first celebrity crush. :blush: The first step is to figure out who my first celebrity crush was. I've had a few over the years, but who qualifies as my first? I might need to Google a few dates to… Continue reading And They Call it Puppy Love…

Piercings and Tattoos

As promised, I'm back with this week's exciting installment from my 31-week blog challenge. This week's topic is Piercings and Tattoos. I've been trying all week to think of something clever to say in this post, but I've got next to nothin'. I have no tattoos. I come from a time when only the guys… Continue reading Piercings and Tattoos

Memories May be Beautiful…and Yet

Waving hello from the one little corner of Florida that wasn't blown apart by Hurricane Irma, and back with another entry in my 31-week blog challenge. This week's prompt is to share an old picture of me. My options are limited because most of the old picture of me aren't in digital format, and I… Continue reading Memories May be Beautiful…and Yet

10 of My Favorite Foods

Well, okay. This week's prompt is to talk about our favorite foods. And not just one or two. No, I have to come up with 10 things I would classify as favorites. Hmmm...  This is either going to be easy or extremely difficult. I can't decide in advance. Number 1 is, of course, my mom's… Continue reading 10 of My Favorite Foods

What I Like About Me

It's week #6 of my personal blogging challenge, and today's prompt is 3 Personality Traits I'm Proud Of. I think this is probably a difficult topic or most of us because, in general, I think most people focus on their weaknesses rather than their strengths. It would be easier, I think, to list three physical… Continue reading What I Like About Me

Just Between You and Me…

It's week 5 of my blogging commitment, and this week's prompt is My Guilty Pleasure, which isn't as easy as it sounds. I don't know that I actually have a "guilty" pleasure, I learned a long time ago, through one of the most painful experiences of my lie, that if you're doing something you can't (or… Continue reading Just Between You and Me…

A Trip Down Memory Lane

It's week 4 of my personal blog challenge here on Waxing the Turtle, and this week's prompt is My earliest childhood memory, which is both fun and challenging. I had a great childhood for the most part. My parents created a great world for us to live in, took us on vacations every year and created… Continue reading A Trip Down Memory Lane
