Tuesday @ Ten - BREAK

A last minute effort to link up with my friend, Karen, in writing from her prompt this week...well, last week!  It's Monday afternoon, and here I am getting it done!

Be sure to check out Karen's Facebook group for the Tuesday @ Ten followers here.

This week's prompt is:  BREAK

This word can be used in several ways:

  1.   Break into the bank...oh yeah!  Like I would?!  Or, break into the house - I forgot my key; so I'll break into the house; it's my house, anyway!
  2.   Take a break for a while...oh yeah!  Like I need a break?!  Actually, I could use a break; I'm feeling a little tired right now!
  3.   Give me a break...oh yeah!  A break?  A hand-up?  An easier way to...

Well, if I were to choose one of these, I think I'd pick number one - make that number two!

I do need a break at times...a break from the routine of "no routine" days.

I love my retired life; a life that can be slow and boring if I'd let it.

I love just being home and doing what I want when I want if I want!

But, those days get tiring after a day or two or three in a row!

I prefer to take a break from those types of days; and do something fun.

I love being able to hang out with my daughters and grandkids.  I love being able to go somewhere and do something with them, make last-minute plan and just go!

I love being available to attend a baseball game, or a karate event, or even to babysit one of the younger grandkids, if that is what I want to do, or if I am needed.

I love meeting my friends for some crafting, or even some shopping; not to mention a road trip to Epcot, during the week when others may be working or in school!

Take a break?  Yes, I also take those when I am tired from household chores - which I do very little of; I hate housework, but it is a necessity.

When I take a break, it's usually to watch a TV show or read or maybe even do a little crafting or coloring.

Today, I am getting some computer work done; reading...and that makes me tired!  I am also trying to get some writing done; a couple of posts that I need want to get written.

And, I am tired!

So, I think I am going to take a break and go relax for a while; and maybe I will take a nap!

And, that is my Tuesday @ Ten post for Break!

Thank you, Karen Beth, for stretching my brain and getting this post done in time! 


  1. Great post! I too, am very last minute for Tuesday at Ten for the past couple of weeks, but hey, at least we made it right? :) I look forward to reading more from you! :) Have a great week, and make sure you take that break! :)

    1. Oh yes! At least we made it for last week's T@T!! Now, to get the new one done!

      Thanks for reading and commenting...I have been very lax at reading others' posts, and am going to get some reading done the next couple of days...other "reading" commitments right now!!
