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.

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.

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.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spoke.” Use it somewhere, in some form, in your post. Bonus points if you don’t use it in the first sentence. Enjoy!
It has been a beautiful day warm and sunny. The temperature has begun to warm up and spring is approaching. Also, my face and arms don’t look pale and I love to see them with a slight of sunburn. I spoke to my granddaughters it was time to start walking in the park and get fresh air. Besides, we feel light, energized, and optimistic after being outside with no coats.
I plan to work in my garden soon. Preparing my flower garden with new gravel, seeds, and more roses. Also, I want to prepare in my garden the spot where my beloved dog would be resting.
I’m ready for the outdoors.
It has been five months since my dad passed away and it looked like yesterday. There is not a day that passed, I don’t think about him. This song is dedicated to my father. I love you dad!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “bun.” Find a word that contains “bun” or use it as a word all by itself. Have fun!
I haven’t been able to be in the computer since Wednesday. I still can’t get over this cold with the company of the worst headache someone can have.
In the meantime, tomorrow is Easter and I’m cooking for the family. I went to the grocery store to get what I need. However, with this headache and the weather being terrible cold, I forgot the buns. I didn’t want to go back and you can hear the girls and my husband saying without the buns the dinner wasn’t completed. Really?
At the end it was my husband who has to run back to the grocery store and get them. What I’m cooking? Well, a Ham with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, and a chocolate cake.
Happy Easter to all my friends.
