Every so often I dabble into the world of scrapbooking blogs. The downside of this is that I feel like a huge slacker whose children will have no recollection of their childhoods because I have done so little, by comparison, to document these childhoods. The upside is that I find all sorts of creative women who provide tons and tons of great writing prompts. So much of what these women do in pictures, I can do in words.
This September, for example, I am participating in 30 Days of Lists. Many of the other women in this challenge are creating gorgeous scrapbook pages each day. I am creating lists.
And the super fun part is that Caroline is doing it with me. She was reading over my shoulder one day and asked what I was doing and them promptly asked if she could do it too. She has enjoyed some of the prompts and then chosen her own on the days that the lists don’t really ‘do it for her.’
Today, she chose her own list… “List all the jobs you might like to try someday.”
Caroline was unsure if I would be able to do this with her because to quote my tween, “I am old.” But I surprised her and truthfully myself, when I came up with this relatively long list…
- Waitress (this I would only want to do for a day and only because I think I might be the only person in the world who has never waited a table).
- Book Reviewer
- Independent Book Store Owner
- Talk show host
- Personal Shopper
Not bad for an old lady like me…
