Six Sentence Story: Fix

Sometimes, when I try to fix a situation, I end up in a fix, and John has to come fix that!  Linking up with Ivy's Six Sentence Stories.



"How hard could it be to put together a doghouse?" she asked herself, as she picked up the hammer and looked at the wood pieces on the floor.

He would be so surprised to find this task on his to-do list done when he returned home from work!   She quickly completed the building project; all that was left to do was to move the doghouse out the basement door to the backyard.  She opened the sliding glass door all the way.  Unfortunately, the XL doghouse for the Newfoundland/Lab mix was bigger than the opening.  

"How hard could it be to take a sliding glass door apart?" he asked himself, as he eyed the doghouse sitting on the basement floor.

    1. Thanks. There might be a reason one should "measure twice" before doing anything drastic.

  8. I love this! Sometimes our very best efforts to be helpful don't work out the way we anticipated, but the thought behind it was still good. Did the dog get to sleep inside or was the sliding door removed to get the house outside? I can imagine how much your family enjoys the retelling of this story!

    1. Our dogs are indoor/outdoor dogs, more indoor than out. The sliding door was removed, however, to get the doghouse outside.

  10. Love it! Great story and something I would have done! My roommate - a million years or so ago bought us this beautiful sofa from the thrift store and we couldn't get it up the stairs! We had to take it back!

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
