SoCS & Just Jot January-2022 “Resolve”

I gave up on resolutions because year after year I’ve failed and quickly. I’ve decided for this year to switch my resolution into a word of the year.  After weeks of thinking about which word would fit my needs, I decided on the word “FOCUS”. I need to apply focus to my life. I’ve been all over the place starting projects and not finishing them. I’ve been making excuses for not having time for anything and being lazy. Also, forgetting to take my meds or drink more water.

I want to prioritize my health, my mental wellness, and focus on my family and home. So, in the midst of all things, I’ll be tracking my commitments on my planner so I can stay focused on my challenge.

Wishing everyone in 2022, filled with love, laughter, and health.

Happy New Year!

Boo…

I’m excited I love Halloween, the kids coming for candy and their lovely costumes. I got up early to fill up my Cauldron with candies. Also, fixing my outdoor decorations because has been windy. I hope we have nice weather like the past two days. I have been enjoying horror movies and watching with my granddaughter “Vampirina”

To everyone who loves Halloween enjoy the day and have fun.  And like “Vampirina” loved to say “Have a spooktacular day and to all “batkins” have fun.

 

Boo…

Nothing inspires me the most it’s watching my neighbors decorating their homes for the holidays. This morning I begin to decorate for Halloween.  I didn’t realize the number of buckets full of Fall and Halloween décor I have.  What did I do?  I call my little granddaughter who loves Halloween to come and help me out with decorations. She was excited.

We decorated the outdoors and a little bit in the living room. The rest of the afternoon we play with the witch hat. A few plastic spiders make us scream. I have so much fun with my little princess that time went too fast. She keeps trying to scare me by throwing spiders and bats on my feet. I promised her I will finish decorating by the time she comes on Monday.

All I need to be inspired was to spend a fun day with my little princess.

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~ May

May is finally here.

I was waiting for May and here is the reason why:

  • We have 18 more days of school.
  • The weather is starting to warm up.
  • Winter coats back to the closet and my shorts are coming out.
  • Mother’s Day, yes, I love this day. I already told my kids no gifts. I want to spend time with them and have a nice BBQ.
  • Our first camping trip for Memorial Weekend.
  • My flower garden is starting to bloom.

 

Happy May… may sunshine and happiness surround you every day!

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.
