The Child

First Monday of March, are you prepared?

Happy March!  How’s the weather where you are?  It’s starting to warm up here in the desert, even if it has been windy as heck lately.  But… that’s how we roll in these parts I suppose.  Here’s to hoping that winter is slowly losing its hold on you if you’re in the Midwest or East Coast.

It's a brand-new month, guys!  Time to start fresh and reevaluate what did and didn’t work for you last month.  I’m not 100% sure when our new challenge starts, but keep an eye out for it.  Speaking of challenges, how did you do with the rare pairs?  So many great prompts were supplied by Haldoor!  I’ve saved them all for future use.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: burger.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy is at less than 1%!  How are we doing?  I feel it’s safe to say that wherever we are at the moment, we have time to catch up.  Hahaha.

March’s post is here, there’s always time to join in!

4. The Daily Count challenge schedule is here so go forth and check when you’re up next!

So, that’s it for today.  Hope you’re all having a wonderful Monday and/or Tuesday!  My younger girl passed her driver’s test on Friday and is making her first solo trip to school today.  Wish her luck and me peace of mind!  Not that I don’t trust her but… I’ve been in that parking lot. Hah!  Here’s to a wonderful week.  Let us know what you’ve got planned to make it as awesome as you can.
