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.

A 90% of the time when I hide something I can’t find it. My husband loves making fun of me. He loves making jokes calling me an old woman. Believe me, one of these days I will smack him on his head. However, in his behalf, I do forget where I hide them in the first place.
As today these items are hiding:
1- my Fitbit cord- I need to charge and find it as soon as possible.
2- My husband birthday gift- It’s a gift card to his favorite store and his birthday was in May
3- A pair of handmade bows I bought for my baby granddaughter. I bought it in May and I’m sure is in the same bag with the gift card.
4- A nail polish I bought at Christmas time. I’m sure is in one of my drawers, but which one.
5- The key of my bedroom door- my husband has to make me a new one.
The list can go on and on. Some days I will find it immediately or I can be looking for days and not have a clue. I’ve proven I can hide things with one small problem, it can stay hidden forever.
Daily Post: Hidden
” I left the light in my heart on, in case you ever wanted to come back home.”
I’m back home and missing my granddaughters very much. After spending four weeks in Arizona and getting beat up by the heat it was time to get back. Of course I’ve be spending the day cleaning the house, paying bills, laundry, and answering emails.
Also I’m getting ready for work on Monday since school starts on Wednesday and the cafeteria needs to be ready.
The house feels quiet, empty, and depressing as a result it’s time to get into my computer.
So here is my one-liner prompt for today and tomorrow I will start writing regarding my time in Arizona with my grandkids.
In response to One-liner Wednesday hosted by Linda G. Hill.
A house is made of bricks and beams A home is made of Love and Dreams!

My home is where I spent time with my family. That’s the reason during the holidays my house is always full, because I love to cook and entertain.
After a long day at work I love to spend my time in the living room. The first thing after I take my shoes off I have my cup of coffee and I take a tiny nap in my couch with the TV on of course. I can’t miss my favorite afternoon shows Family Feud and Judge Judy.
This is what makes my house a cozy home:
My husband, my kids, grandkids, and my two dogs
My cozy couch
The family photos
Name five things in your house that make it a home.
Thanks for the lovely prompt suggestion, thekyleinator!
I will take a few items, of course I’m assuming that my family and my dog are safe I will run to my bedroom and grab:
My huge purse, I hang it on my bedroom door. That’s the purse I use for work and I always carry my wallet, a bottle of water, a granola bar, my keys, and a hair brush.
Next I will go to my night stand and grab my mom’s bible, my kindle, and my phone and place it in my purse.
I will empty a small jewelry box that I keep in my drawer with my mom’s wedding rings, her necklace, and my wedding band. Oh! and the candy bar that I hide.
After that I will go to the living room and take my laptop and my hard drive. Getting close to the door, I will put my shoes and grab my mom and my grandkids pictures.
I know is more than five items, but my purse is big enough to carry all of this. Yes it would be heavy; however it will be worth it.
So, what would you grab on your way out?
In Response to the daily prompt: Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?
