Satruday Centus #35

 It's Saturday Centus again - in a nutshell, Jenny Matlock gives us a prompt from either herself or a guest submitter and then we have to write 100 or words less related to the prompt (the prompt doesn't count toward the 100 words) Then link it up to her blog. It's open until the following Saturday, so that means you have all week to participate by either reading or writing.  http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/search/label/Saturday%20Centus

The prompt is in bold.  Hopefully, this is the end of the holiday prompts for a while, ha. 

Her crumpled up list of resolutions sat on the floor.  She picked them up and started reading them.

1.       Lose weight
2.       Organize house
3.       Exercise more


Blah, blah, blah.  Every year the same old stuff.  Betsy was a great list maker just never good on the follow through.

Maybe she was taking the wrong approach.  She got out a new piece of paper and started to write.

1.       Hire a chef
2.       Hire an organizer
3.       Hire a trainer.

Now she needed ideas on how to come up with the money to afford all these people...

Thanks for the laugh! Great centus

Susannah said...

I loved this! :-)

I thought the numbered list was a great idea and the focusing on solutions rather than a restating of the problems...just wonderful!

I really enjoyed your centus.

Fabulous!

I loved this creative approach to SC this week.

I loved peeking into her life...and watching her thought process.

Really cool.
