Heads Or Tails #99

The theme/prompt for THIS week, July 14, is:

HEADS - "Pile"

Make any kind of post using any version of the word "Pile" as your theme/prompt.




Imagine my embarrassment when this morning I realized I had used the wrong word as the prompt. Me.. the creator of Heads Or Tails! Sheesh!!! I guess I could try to claim that "Pile" was too hard so I made up a new one. I guess I could be honest and confess I messed up.

Since I'm drawing a blank on something new, I'll talk briefly about current postings here..

Me and Mr. Skittles have had to make some hard choices lately. Our expenses had PILED up way too high compared to the incoming money. We've cut back on extras and are selling stuff to fix the situation and make our money stretch farther. (We almost had to shut down our internet but that was managed to be saved.)

Hi, Barb! Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I soooooo know what you mean about expenses! I've been out of work for over a year! I have recently moved in with my daughter - oh yeh, I'm having fun! LOL

I read a few of the back entries. I'm sorry. I've been spending more than I earn for so long I've been named an honorary government. But it's no joke is it?

I can truly relate to the bills piling up! I'm so glad you are able to save the internet for now!

LOL! I'm not the only forgetfulone! I read the post about "flip" and I have the song stuck in my head. I didn't comment because I thought I was the one who did the wrong prompt!

I'm so glad you were able to save the internet! I'd sure miss you and your visits to my blogs. My internet is safe for now because my hubby works from home. Good luck with you financial changes. I know from experience how stressful they can be. You'll make it thru!

What do you mean - you messed up with the prompt? Do I get my money back? :)
Good luck. I've been in the same boat for a decade - since the first time I had pneumonia. If the illness doesn't get you, the bills will. Argh.
