Writers workshop - Normal Is!

The prompt for Kat's writers workshop that I am going to tackle this week is, "Normal is....."

So without further ado........
  • Normal is being cranky for no reason at all.
  • Normal is Reid saying, "I LOVE this song," to every song that comes on the radio.
  • Normal is the pooch of fat sitting on my belly. {curses belly fat}
  • Normal is Friday night dinner at moms house.
  • Normal is wanting to kick the cat in her furry ass for scratching the sofa.
  • Normal is blue eyes and a freckled nose.
  • Normal is getting older.
  • Normal is my camera near by.
  • Normal is my constant and unconditional love for my girls.
  • Normal is my future Grandchildren never inheriting anything old because I watch Oprah and Oprah says that I should simplify my life and get rid of my crap.
  • Normal is wanting to hold on to the crap for those just in case moments.  
  • Normal is telling yourself that if you haven't needed the crap in the past 10 years then you probably won't ever need it!
Last but not least.......Normal is the writers workshop over at Mama's Losin it
Won't you come and play.....all the Normal bloggers are.

Miranda said...

LOL love the post! I have a whole garage full of crap I haven't needed in ten years. I have no desire to sort through it all though and actually get rid of it. :)

Lindsay said...

I love how you formatted your post!

Man, my kids and grandkids will inherit some crazy stuff for sure! I sure hope they like rainbows! And I must say, Reid and I are alike. We do the same thing with songs :)

Lauren said...

I can relate! I have closets full of crap!

Dan said...

Darn! I knew there was a reason I keep getting older. Normalcy has a lot to answer for.

Lolli said...

Sounds totally normal to me!! :)

Thanks for visiting me! I love reading all your writers workshop posts, I am soooo not a writer and the thought of doing something like this scares me! But way to go for you!!! I love your other blog with the picture of the day, very neat pics!(the house one cracked me up!)

Jill (Sneaky Momma) said...

I, too, feel a need to hang onto all of my 'crap'. If I could just get this concept down...
My little girl always says that everything is her 'favorite'. Way too cute. :)

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

I loved it!!!

I finally have my car in my garage because of Clean House and my hubby watching it one day.

Jenny said...

That was great:) Nice Blog.

ella said...

Oprah is right. Get rid of the crap. Of course saying and doing are 2 different things.

Martha McGlothlin Gayle said...

You're right about the marbles...kids probably don't even know what they are these days! :-)

By the way, I LOVE your blog's banner!

Keri said...

Hmm, you got that pouch of fat on your belly too, eh? I curse it and give it a good occasional slap for I am cursed with it.

As for an abundance of junk, I try and do an okay job at not holding on to too much. One great way of looking at it is, out of sight out of mind. If you happen to get rid of it, I doubt you'd miss it.

I'm jealous of your normal dinners at your moms. I sure wish that was normal for me. I miss her cooking but she lives 3000 miles away and thats a looong way to go for dinner!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

It all looks normal to me...Love it!

blueviolet said...

I completely love your normal and apart from the blue eyes and freckles, this could be me! You're terrific!

Los said...

I hope craving cheese-steaks and wings is normal ...

Jenni Jiggety said...

I love my crap, Michelle. I can't help it...

lisaschaos said...

You had me laughing pretty hard when I read about your poor future grandchildren. :) Maybe I need to use that excuse to start being a pack rat. I have gotten into the habit of getting rid of things and simplifying, mostly because we move, but I'm a pack rat at heart. I love crap!

If normal is being cranky for no reason, then my hubs will say I am the MOST normal person in the world.

Casey's trio said...

Loved this post! My normal sounds ALOT like you normal:)

Toni said...

Dinner and moms? what a lucky girl you are!

Karen said...

Michelle, you need to save that junk so you can re invent it! I would be spray painting those lamps and recovering the shades:) What other goodies did you dump?
