friday fictioneers: irreparable?

dismantled keyboard

Taking it apart was easy. Putting it back together? Not so sure.

What convinced me to surprise Missy, andΒ fix the damn thing? I who know diddlysquat about mechanical things.

I had good intentions. Although it’s probably beyond repair now.

Like my marriage.

I’ve tried. We both have. But with two careers running on high octane, and 3 children in overdrive, life is crazy.

Had we seen this coming, would we have taken on so much?

Who knows.

And yet, I’m sure I can fix this.

If I can fix other people, I can fix us.

I’ll schedule us for therapy.nashville-09-2010-00024.jpg

    • Since joining Friday Fictioneers I find I’m learning to “think on my feet.” Hopefully the practice will help motivate me to get working on something longer…like a novella or something. πŸ™‚ hugs for the nice comment.


    • My daughter came up with the title after tweaking the original one a couple of years ago. It use to be “hugmamma’s attention to detail.” We figured the current one would get more traction on the search engines.

      hugs for the kind compliments…


      • That’s an important point. Liking is as important as loving, maybe even more so at times. Marrying your best friend probably makes for a better, lasting relationship than marrying someone you’re madly in love with. Hopefully you get both or at least a bit of both.



        • Thankfully I’ve found both in my hubby of 42 years. Not that it didn’t take major adjustments, especially in our younger years…we married at 20 and 21 years old. I was 17 when we met. Lucky for us our relationship has aged like fine wine. πŸ™‚


  1. I like how you compared this to a broken relationship. Sometimes it seems like they are too complicated to even attempt putting back together, but I do believe if there’s a will there’s a way. It always amazes me what people are capable of when they put their minds to it. πŸ˜€


    • Thanks, Rochelle. I like to think fixing partnerships is worth attempting.

      After writing a few lines last night I didn’t know where I wanted to go with the story. I slept on it…and today the idea seemed to flow from my brain onto the page.

      hugs…millie πŸ™‚


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
