Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop: Wanted

It’s Thursday and time for Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop once again.  I love Thursday’s almost as much as I love Random Tuesdays.  I really like the fifth prompt today and I had a bit of fun being creative with this one.  Be sure to stop over to Mama Kat’s and see who else is sharing their creativity today.
*I forgot to put up the badge yesterday so I did it today.  Yes I felt that bad about forgetting it.

5.) Create a Help Wanted Ad.
(inspired by Jenners)

Wanted: One house to rent, condition of no concern as long as walls are standing, preferably with indoor plumbing but I’m not picky, outhouses okay.  I will keep up the yard and scatter it with bikes and random large plastic toys.  I promise to keep music to a minimum so as not to annoy the neighbors so long as they provide the same courtesy.  Three bedrooms would be optimal but my kids have to get used to sharing so one or two rooms is also fine.  No garage necessary, I’m sure I can manage without.  I do prefer a driveway but again I’m not overly particular.  Kitchen is a must with sink and stove.  If fire codes allow I can do my cooking over an open flame pit in the backyard but that’s going to get cold in the winter.  The house should also have heating.  It doesn’t have to work overly well as I’m always cold so I won’t be able to tell the difference either way.  But my kids do prefer heat on occasion.  

If you’ve got a house that sounds like the one above be sure to email me at

Head over to Mama Kat’s and see who else is playing along today! {And if you’ve got a house like the one above you let me know okay?}

  1. PA is a big state. Whereabouts are you planning to settle? We have a 5-car heated garage in Western PA, but you'd have to agree to help my husband fix all the junkers he has in there to make room for your family. And it does get a tad on the bone-chilling side in deep winter. With all the home foreclosures and the market full of empty homes, you'd think there would be lots of houses for rent. Good luck.I'm sponsoring my first giveaway. Check out my blog for details.


  2. I am gonna recommend you go with the indoor plumbing, actually. My guess is that an outhouse gets old really fast come winter! Nothing worse than a wind-chapped butt! ;)Good luck with the search!


  3. That was funny. I hope you don't mind, but I am totally joining in on the writers prompts. I am suddenly at a lose for words when it comes to my blog these days.


  4. You know you wouldn't think in todays market that finding a three bedroom house would be that difficult! Have you looked at craigslist??And please don't settle for the house in the picture…let's keep some standards here. 😉
