Hands Down, the Best Decade is… {#FTSF}

This one!

FTSF is going to get a taste of my very bad attempt at poetry…

The 80s rocked the world
Left me alone and stranded
A little girl lost
Family was distracted

Through the DecadeIn middle and high school
The 90s brought two siblings
Became an extra hand
School became my living

Y2K was behind us
Graduated with a law degree
Brought home a son and a husband
Lost a son, a depressed me

Now we’re in the 10s.
Our family expanded,
Two daughters, a move
A house enchanted

Love, family and home
We’re finally settled in
A stay at home mom
Making bathroom gin
Now it all begins

**”Bathroom gin” was in the rhyming dictionary for “in”. Almost fit the line…lol.

  1. I love this April. Seriously great poem and way to answer the topic sentence. Thanks so much for linking with us again this week and hoping that you had a wonderful week so far, as well as wish you a great weekend now, too!! 🙂

    1. I could talk on and on about the comparisons. I wanted to try for once to say less (since it's more, right?) Thanks for having me as always!

  2. I love your take on this…kind of like an 80's rap. You don't know where it is going but you sure enjoy the journey. HAHAHA Journey…best 80's band ever 🙂

    1. Yes, a crappy beginners rap. LOL! It was fun writing it though! I'm glad you enjoyed reading it. Let me guess… you loved the 80s? I guess I'll have to stop by to see!

  3. Bathroom gin! Love it! Such a clever way to handle this favourite decade topic. Who suggested it? Me …. Anywho, beyond that – you covered so much is such a short ditty. Very impressive.

    1. How do you see "bathroom gin" in the rhyming dictionary and NOT use it. Just saying! Thanks for the suggestion. It was really good. I'm trying to stretch my writing skills… hopefully future ones will be MUCH better! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Bathroom gin? Too funny! Such a creative and fun way to answer the sentence and cheers to it all beginning now, once you're settled and staying at home and have a larger family!

    1. Thank you. I had fun writing it. The dictionary didn't just have "gin", it had bathroom gin! Yes, I'm loving the family!

  5. Bonus points for writing a poem and including a gin reference – love it! I couldn't pick just one decade either – you covered them all beautifully.

    1. Yes, it's hard. So many people took different directions, from television series to great styles and fashion. It was a great prompt!

  6. Lots of good and some very sad. Funny when we look back at our lives there are major ups and downs but looks like you've found blessings throughout.

    1. All I have been through has made me the woman I am today. I appreciate it and love that I have the ability to become a better person from it all. Thank you.

    Love it!

    I have a law degree and I think I'd like to hear more about this bathroom gin! Those are unrelated statements I think.

    You've said so much here with so few words. I enjoyed it.

    1. Yes, they are completely unrelated. LOL! I don't think there are many lawyers who make bathroom gin, but I could be wrong. Thanks for stopping by Don!

  8. You are so creative, April. I'm sorry for your loss and happy that your live has some wonderful joy. I hope the future brings many more blessings.

  9. That is a great and different way to "finish the sentence"; I love it!

    What mother couldn't use a little bathroom gin now and then? LOL

    1. Thank you! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm just so happy that I feel like I can be part of the light.
