Saturday Centus #16

Saturday Centus was switched up this week.  Here's what it said:

WEEK 16 ASSIGNMENT

Do you remember how during the first week back at school the teacher would make you write an essay about what you did over your summer vacation? Well, school has been in session almost two weeks here so I thought we'd try this for something different.

Your story must be written in first person AND must be exactly 100 words long. It can be fact or fiction.

So...

Exactly 100 words, first person, fact or fiction...What I did over my Summer Vacation

****************

                            What I did over my Summer Vacation

The words hot and humid are one of the things I'll remember the most about summer vacation.  Although every day is a vacation for me, since I haven't worked since my son was born so many years ago. 

When my son came from out of town, since he's on our cell phone plan we got new cell phones.  We also added another one since Hippie and I always unbelievably shared one all these years.

My son helped me pick out a new computer which I'm sure I will love once it's set up. 

Could my summer vacation be anymore exciting? 


Check out what others decided to do because I'm thinking the bold letters were just a title but I'm not exactly sure LOL.    http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2010/08/saturday-centus-week-16.html

Viki, I think we all are moving to similar grooves this week.

You had excitement with technology. I'd say that puts you to the head of the class.

An every day vacation?? Ohhh I am on a jealous streak with this prompt. Well done!!

Sue said...

Getting a new computer is about as exciting as it gets!

Hey Viki! I, too, am so fortunate that I've been able to be at home for many years. I've either worked from my home, or like now...kind of on vacation..BUT I AM writing my book, so that counts as work, doesn't it?! I'm glad you had a restful and fun summer! I wanted to mention, too, that I was in 5th grade when JFK died, and the nuns at my school cried, too.

It's so nice when our kids help us out with technology, isn't it LOL. I still remember Cait, at age 5, with hands on hips, explaining to her poor clueless Mom how "Windows" worked :) Nice entry for Centus!

Yes, I also caught up on my Tech... Bought my family Android phones, bought a new server for our SageTV application, and now redoing my office so that all the technology FITS into said office.
