There is no school and no mail delivered for today (Minot, ND). My goal for today, I can finish reading a book I started or maybe, I can clean a little bit. Oh wait, it’s too cold to be cleaning. 🙂
One-Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt 2019 is hosted by Linda G. Hill.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!
I love to watch television. It’s entertaining and it comforts my day. Yes, I’m a television junkie. When I was younger, we would watch television all together, it was family time. We would sit together to watch cartoons, tv series, and “Spanish Novellas (soaps)”. Spending that time together was priceless. We didn’t have a big tv and our first one was a black and white. The television wasn’t on all day. My parents didn’t want us to be hypnotized by the television. They want us to have the time to read and to play outside.
I raised my children the same way and now as adults, they watch the television when they have the time. However, as I grow older, I’m watching more television because it’s the only time I can relax. Just last night I watched Frozen and Monster University with my granddaughter and we have fun. And tonight, I will be watching classic Western movies with my husband.
My favorite channels would be Hallmark Mystery, SyFy, and lately I’m binging on Netflix and Hulu. I love those classic tv shows.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “your favourite word.” What’s your favourite word? Write about it, base your post on it, or just write about the concept of having one. Enjoy!
A week ago, my husband and I took my two granddaughters to Wyoming half away from Arizona. They went back home after school was over. My daughter finishes her school and she can take care of them without any worries. It was tough for my daughter going to school, working two jobs, and taking care of them. My daughter’s face was full of happiness.
I’ve always been close to my girls. I feel the emptiness of my home. I missed the conversations, watching our favorite tv shows, going every week to the library, and shopping. The house it’s so quiet I’m bored with nothing to do. Yes, laundry is done also the house is clean.
I admitted I love running around and been busy at all time. Yes, I do have two more grandkids who I take care of them during the week. However, I miss those girls the most. Since my dad passed away and not having the company of my dog I can feel empty. That’s the reason I’m missing them so much. I need to find something to do until I go back to work in August.
A home without noises and laughter it’s not a home.
last picture, before the goodbyes
Tomorrow is our last day of school. Hooray! The school staff and students have been counting the days left since the first of May. We’ve been working hard packing and cleaning the kitchen. The fridge and freezer are already empty and by the end of tomorrow a quick inventory.
Tomorrow’s lunch would a bag with a sandwich, carrots, applesauce, chips, and a juice. It’s a simple lunch with a little bit too clean. Pick a bag, grab a milk, and enjoy. Meanwhile the kids eat, we will finish cleaning the kitchen and putting away the rest of the supplies. By 2pm and with a quick inventory and orders for the fall all done, we will say our goodbyes. They will be tears for the ones who are retiring and for the kids who are graduating and moving away.
We will take our bags and turn the lights off. We will disappear for a while with a huge smile, knowing we’ve a wonderful school year.
And for the next three months, I will be enjoying my summer vacation…. recharging for the next round.
Daily Post: Disappear
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “letter.” Use it in your post or theme your post on any meaning of the word “letter.” Enjoy!
I missed you. I want to tell you how much my life has changed since the day you went to heaven. At times I would like to have a time machine and go back to be with you. I will give you a hug, a kiss, and sit next to you with my head in your lap. I remember our conversations or the stories with a twist you like to tell. You didn’t have the chance to meet your grandchildren and one looks like you. I know how much you want to be a grandmother and spoiled them.
I know in my heart dad is with you. After 32 years you both are reunited. Mom, tell dad I miss him every day. Since he passed I can’t stop crying. He can tell you cute stories about your grandkids and keep watching us from heaven.
To both of you, thank you for giving me life and to make me the woman I am today.
The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 5/18
I’ve been working at the school for years and I’ve seen a lot of tantrum- bad behaviors in some of our children. I don’t want to blame anyone, but then this kind of behavior comes from their homes. Some of the parents expect the school to take care of their kid problems. The school feed them, babysit them, and deal with their disrespect. For some parents taking care of their kids it’s our job.
This new generation of parents is afraid of discipline their own children. They don’t like to be judged as a parent and they preferred someone else doing it for them. Of course, they want us to deal with them. Some parents like to make excuses. I know we’ve some parents with two jobs and they are tired, but then we’re talking about their job as a parent. It’s frightening to think this is our future generation the ones who will be taking care of us.
Nowadays bad behaviors and tantrums are called a disorder. They pump their kids with medications and supposedly to calm them down they leave them alone. In our school they’ve a separate room only for them. They sit with a laptop, play with toys, or they take a nap.
I’m going to clarify something here, not all the parents are acting like this. I know some’s who are doing an amazing job as a parent. They work hard and their kids are wonderful children.
When I was growing up they didn’t call bad tantrum or bad behaviors a disorder. The parents would take care of the situation and not the teachers. I remember we will get grounded it for weeks with no TV, no playing outside with our friends, no desserts, and we were sent to bed early.
Now it’s my children turn to raise their own. They don’t believe in awarding bad behaviors and they don’t make excuses. If my grandchildren don’t behave, they would be grounded and they’ll going to lose their privileges. No tantrums are allowed.
To parents, I know it’s tough to discipline these days, especially when some of you had two jobs and be a single parent. However, it’s time to be responsible and show who’s the parent and who’s the child. Don’t give them more that they need and no award bad behavior. A six-year-old don’t need a cell phone as a birthday gift or expenses tennis shoes. Don’t relay in the schools to take care of the discipline of your child. Be tough when its need it and show love to your child. Talk to them and give them attention possibly that’s all what they need.
