Six Word Memoir

Six words to describe something significant in my life. Um, how does a long-winded, soap-box type do that? Not easily. So I wrote six. Six Six Word Memoirs of six words each.

Husband, two kids. Employed, healthy, blessed.

I overaccessorize with stress and exhaustion.

Sometimes I am so over myself.

My family is my whole world.

Adopted. Awesome family. Awesome biological family.

Mama needs a vacation soon, please!

Written for Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop. Prompt 1.) Six Word Memoir: Write about a significant time in your life in just six words.



  1. I love, love your second one.

  2. I love the third one! I feel that way sometimes, too.

  3. “Sometimes I am so over myself” – too funny!

    I love the first one the best. :)

      I liked your 1st one and the last 2 the best but haven’t had a chance to comment yet. I’m in lurk mode. ;)

  4. I can so relate to 3 and 4! And you should have a vacation!

    • Gingerbreadmama says:

      We have a mini vacation planned for June 19-22, can’t wait!! Though we are taking the kids so I’m not sure how relaxing it will be, but at least there won’t be laundry to fold and put away!

  5. You are very creative with the SIX six word memoirs. Great job!

  6. This one needs to be on a t-shirt: I overaccessorize with stress and exhaustion.

    Love it!

  7. Awwww…me too. :)

  8. “I overaccessorize with stress and exhaustion.”

    Best. Line. Ever.

    Where’s the t-shirt?
