Well, we were under contract with a house for almost a full week before backing out. Things kept popping up as broken that weren’t listed that way when we first got involved. And the owners knew about said things. Pretty frustrating. Dishonesty ain’t no good. :-)

Sigh. Back to the hunting again. But I’d rather be in a place that is best for us, and that we’ll be able to love.

I’m a tad grouchy right now… :-) I spent the last hour working on a prompt that had to do with marketing and promoting for authors… and then my laptop shutoff without warning, and I don’t have time to write another one. It’s late Thursday night and we have family from out of town arriving in the morning, I’ve got an author presentation thing in the afternoon, then we’re going house hunting in the evening. Sigh.

So, instead, I’m going to put together a “quick” prompt and see if I can do the marketing and promoting one next week.

For this prompt, I want you to tell me the story of how you met your spouse(s)( :-)). And I want you to use four of the following adjectives:

  • Red
  • Fast
  • Rusty
  • Expensive
  • Flat

DON’T use these words (gotta make it exciting :-)):

  • Romantic
  • Dinner
  • Meet/met
  • Sweet
  • Husband/wife

I’ve probably told our story before, but my hubby and I met on a blind date. I didn’t like him. :-) It took me a few months to come around. In fact, I was a flake where he was concerned, which isn’t my personality. But I think he needed it. :-)

I’m glad he was patient! He’s been an amazing supporter and confidant and helper and friend. Sigh. Allow me to be twitterpated for just a moment. :-)


You have until Thursday, April 18, 2013 at midnight to write and post, and it can be in any format.

I will comment on and feature your responses a week from today.

* Have your title say FWE or Friday Writing Essential, and have the initials “MOS” (Meeting Our Spouses) in it.

* Make sure to post to the Writing Essential Group.

* Put FWE or Friday Writing Essentials and the initials “MOS” in your tags.

Have a great week!

If I find the time, I’ll add pictures of Lizzy in the morning. She’s been doing this thing where she sticks the tip of her tongue out all the time. It’s super cute and funny. :-)


With her cousin, Sophie (my sister’s daughter)


With Sophie’s older sister, Lacie. Much more calm here. :-) She was on stimulation overload in that last picture. Poor girl. :-)


At our mortgage broker’s office. Tongue!






Concerned, at Ross. She stared at her daddy the ENTIRE time we were there, just like this. Like he was her lifeline. :-)


Concerned and tongue. :-)
