Hammy Goes To The Vet - uyw

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them. 

Susie ran into the room crying  "Mommy, Mommy! Help me, Help Hammy!"
Her mother turned around with every nerve on high alert, "calm down honey, what's wrong?" but she was afraid she knew as she looked at her daughters outstretched hands. One lifeless hamster...
Oh dear lord what will I do with her now, thought her mother. Hammy had been an incredible companion for the little girl almost her entire life.
She gently took Hammy from Susie and felt a small but faint heart beat.
So Barb grabbed her phone, purse, keys and headed toward the garage. "Come on!" she yelled back behind her.
Susie took off like a shot.
They were in the car and headed to the vet. Barb called on the way but the receptionist didn't sound positive. She didn't care, she would do whatever necessary to save Hammy.
Upon arriving they were escorted to an examining room to wait for Dr. Gaines. Soon after settling in, Barb overheard the tech in the hall saying "his usage has expired, ya know they normally only live 3-4 years" she was livid and if she found who said it she might string them up on rope! Thankful that Susie was too young to understand the conversation AND it may be true, but how dare they!
Dr. Gaines came in, examined Hammy and said that unfortunately he thought this was the end. Hammy has had a good life "but I'm afraid there's nothing we can do". Poor Susie understood that. She bawled, no wailed now and Barb was sure that everyone in the waiting room could hear her.
That was of no importance right now, comforting her daughter was her priority.
So they sat there, holding Hammy, stroking his fluffy fur and talking sweetly to him until his last breath. Dr. Gaines gently wrapped him in a cloth and they took him home for a proper farewell.

Another Year Has Passed - anniversary poetry

Each month we choose a theme, this month is Anniversaries. 
This month is difficult for me as today would have been my Daddy's birthday. He passed in 2013 just six days before my birthday, seven days before my oldest son's birthday and thirteen days before Father's Day.
To say I miss him is an understatement.
He is better off, no more pain and sickness, which helps some. I don't think it ever goes away, you just find different ways of adjusting.

So with sure to stop by the other participants and see what they have written.

Another Year Has Passed

Another year has passed
it could be happy or sad

Another year has passed
time to remember our past

Another year has passed
party time, let's celebrate

Another year has passed
come to together with family and friends

Another year has passed
life moves on and we grow

Another year has passed
it's a little easier to smile

Another year has passed
and we will celebrate

Well Bust My Britches - SSS

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 8 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

Well bust my britches! Of course Karen would want to know my "embarrassing story" and I'd love to say I don't have one. Actually I have several but I'm choosing the least embarrassing one. Well, not really because they were all really bad in my head.

So it's shopping day. I'm out the door with my favorite shirt and jeans on. Double check, yep, list, phone, wallet, debit card and keys. So I'm off. I hit the first store, in and out in record time. The dreaded Wally World, now I drive straight across the street, I survived that my reward is an iced coffee from DD. Mmm mmm
Now I'm out in traffic again, it is horrible here in HOTLanta. I make it to my favorite store, Aldi. I get my shopping done. They had everything on my list. I bag it all up and to the truck I go. It's loaded up, I return my cart and head for home.
Once everything is in the house, took a couple of trips. I'm off to the little girls room.
Okay...I'm sitting there and look down. Hmm my jeans look funny.
OMG to my horror, oh it is NOT funny! My jeans are ripped!! NOT a tear, not a little hole. I mean RIPPED like a BIG gaping hole!
HOLY CRAP WHEN did this happen???? Did I walk around in ALL THREE stores like this? Could anyone see my thighs?? Oh dear sweet mama!
I can't even get up. I'm sitting there horrified. I finally get up the courage, get up and check myself in the mirror. I can't tell.
I go about putting away the stuff and groceries. Hubby comes home for lunch and I'm like "Hey look at my butt and tell me if you see anything"
OKAY not the best way to ask this question!
He's like "woo hoo I've got time."
I said "time for what?"
He said "never mind, obviously that's not what you meant."
I just rolled my eyes. "NO that's not what I meant!"
I said "LOOK "
He said "okay I'm looking but for what?"
I said "do you see anything?"
He says "yes, your butt, why?"
I said, "do my jeans look weird?" I walk a little.
He said "wait, wait, come here"
I walk over to him, he looks at me and says "Umm you can't wear those out anymore."
I'm almost in tears! OMG You can tell!!!!
He's laughing, I'm laughing/crying "It's not funny"
Aww come here I'm sorry.
I said, OMG I was all over 3 stores! he said "honey you were in WM do you really think anyone noticed?"
I said "OMG I hope not, I don't want to be one"
