SoCS~ “Lucky”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “luck.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

 Feeling lucky tonight? It’s a slogan for a North Dakota Casino Ad. They show the ad so many times that it gets annoying. Depends on my mood, I will respond a yes! or I mumble a nasty word.

Analyzing those words “feeling lucky”.  Well, I’ve never won the lottery or any raffle. Meanwhile, my husband has been a winner in a few raffles with nice prizes. No lottery winner yet. I feel his luck is my luck because in the end, I keep the prizes.

Do I feel lucky? Yes, I’m lucky.  I’ve my family, a job that I love, things I treacherous and my husband’s prizes.

SoCS~ “wee”

My last week of vacationing in AZ is coming to an end. When I get home, I will have one more week to prepare all my things for work. The school doesn’t start until the 24th.  However, I need to be at the school on the 16th for staff meetings and organizing the kitchen.  I’ve to place my food order for the first two weeks. Also, I need to hire a nutrition service as soon as possible. Been shorthanded in the kitchen is something I don’t want to go through, again. Unfortunately, I did hire a person in July and she already resigned without starting yet. I’m hoping to hire an awesome person who can stick with us.

 

My plan when I get home:

  • Organized my work clothes. Discard the ones I won’t use.
  • Print out the new regulations and forms for my staff
  • Shopping for comfort work shoes. I’m going this time for Sketches with foam platform.
  • A cute haircut
  • Purchase supplies for my little space I call my office.
  • Finally, enjoy my last couple of days of vacay.

 

To everyone, have a wonderful week and keep enjoying your precious time.

SoCS~ “Hope”

Who doesn’t have hopes and dreams? I do. I hope by the time I retire I can make a road trip for an entire month. I want to retire at 62 because at this point, I’m tired of working. However, everything can change depends on my health insurance. Then it will be at 65 not an extra day. I want to spend time with my grandchildren, to relax and enjoy the rest of my life. If I get bored, I can get a part-time job that I can enjoy without killing myself.

I hope by 62 I have enough money to live comfortably without any problems. So many hopes and dreams that if it comes true, I will be amazed. Yes, amazed. When I think, I have everything figured out something happens. Let’s hope and wait how it goes.  I will keep hoping that when I turned 62, I can retire and enjoy my time.

SoCS~ Hope

 

SOCS~”day/week/month/year”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!

 A year ago, my granddaughters came for a two-week spring break and they have to stay with us for six months. Covid-19 was starting to create chaos. Their flight was canceled, stores, schools and restaurants were closed and we were afraid to go out.

Today 3/13/21 they are back again for their two-week spring break. Comparing to last year’s at least everything has started to open. Even so, we have restrictions of using a mask it feels we are getting closer to have a normal life again.

I have my first dose of the vaccine and I’m very happy. I didn’t feel anything, not even a sore arm. By the end of the month, I will get my second dose. I hope this nightmare of the pandemic completely disappears and we can be safe to be with our family and friends. I can’t wait to see my family it has been too long.

Meanwhile, I will be enjoying the time with my granddaughters.

SoCS~”above/below”

Until the middle of January, we have a mild winter. Then the winds and the front cold air starts and boom we are bundle head to toe. I was watching the weather channel and there is a storm in every part of the USA.  The past two weeks have been the worse with frigid cold weather. No above temperature just below.

My husband’s car didn’t start the engine and the battery is dead. We have been sharing my car and he has to drive me to work. The kids at the school have inside recess and they are getting cranky and loud. We all need the fresh air.  My poor dog goes outside and he ran back to the house.

Yesterday we broke the record.  This cold feels similar to sharp needles in your face. I feel like a popsicle. Also, my knees have been suffering from this weather.  

As you can see, we have good news it’s going to warm up. Yeah, it’s going to be in the double digits. I’m loving the word “above”.

#SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th-“first thing”

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

 I always have “first things” to do at different times of the day. The first thing I do when I wake up, the first thing when I get to work, and the first thing when I get home. And this morning, this prompt was supposed to be the first thing I will do before starting to clean. Guess what. I forgot and now it’s my last thing before I go to bed.

SoCS~ List

I considered myself to be a fanatic of writing lists. I don’t have the same sharp memory from a few years ago. I need them to function at work and at my home. I’ll be lost if I don’t have my sticky notes everywhere. December is the month I have more lists than ever. I have a Christmas gift list, groceries list, Christmas card send list, and a to-do list. Thanks to that list I don’t miss a gift or a Christmas card. It saves me the time to run an errand at the last minute or feel embarrassed that I missed a gift.

To my surprise, my Christmas gift shopping is all done. You can imagine how I feel. For the first time in years, everyone on my list has been crossed out including my husband. For the most part, I did my shopping online. I didn’t realize how easy and convenient way to shop.  The majority of my shopping was from local businesses. This year I cut down from the big franchise stores and help our locals.

The real challenge here is the wrapping part. For me, that’s the toughest job and I don’t get any help. So as soon, they begin to arrive I will try to get it done. So, what’s next? Next weekend I will be sending Christmas cards and make cookies. I feel more relaxed and enjoying the moment. I did decorate my Christmas tree the day after Halloween. I feel wonderful and not as rushed as other years.

I don’t know yet what I’m doing for Christmas. My two boys will be here but my daughter won’t be traveling because of the Covid-19.

I just hope we can all have a nice and safe Christmas.

SoCS~ “Ring”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

One of my favorite movies is The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I watch the movie before I knew there was a book. Usually, I read the book first and watch the movie later on. For me, the book it’s always better and the movie gets to be disappointed. This time it was different I ended loving both.

One of so many favorite parts is when for the first time Frodo runs for his life he fell on the ground and the ring goes on his finger. Frodo experiences the darkness of the ring and he sees the bad spirits. Of course, the book is kind of a little different. However, I considered it one of my favorite movies and books.

SoCS~ My Journal

When I started with my journal I did it for different reasons. One, my doctor suggested as an exercise for my mental health.  Second, for keeping myself organized I used to forget appointments or paying bills. And third, for writing and doodles whatever comes into my mind. This process has been helpful with all the craziness I was feeling. I still do.
