100 Word Challenge: Boxes

I may have to change days for this prompt. Too much crazy stuff keeps happening around here on Wednesdays.

THIS WEEK… my millennial son moved back home and apparently all the crap he had when he initially left has exponentially multiplied in the three months he’s been away.

My house is about to burst at the seams. I can’t get another thing in here. I’m afraid if I have a new thought the roof will blow off.

At least the cats are pleased. They now have so much more climbing and jumping obstacles. Their parkour is professional grade ninja.

Hopefully, once all the excitement of having him home has calmed down (sarcasm), we can get methodical about clearing out/selling off stuff we don’t need.

I’m not holding my breath on that, but still keeping my fingers crossed it will actually happen.

Using “boxes” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied.

Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

  1. I was the one who came home and I brought my child. I was there 14 years before I finally got my apartment through public housing and just in time as I would be homeless since my dad had a stroke a few months later and ended up in a long term care center.
