JusJoJanuary the 17th, 2022-“Joy”

Waking up full of joy on a Monday. It’s Martin Luther King’s Day and I’m off. It’s cold outside and I have no plans to go anywhere. However, the joy of being home in my pj’s with my cup of coffee is priceless. I don’t need to do much of the chores, because I already did it on Friday and Saturday. I only want to rearrange a few things around the house so it looks fresh. My weekend went great with my two youngest grandbabies staying the night. It was a sleepover at grandma’s house. We watched the movie “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania” the fourth movie. It wasn’t my favorite; however, my little ones enjoyed the movie.

The joy of spending quality time with my grandbabies gives me a good start to the week.

JusJoJan the 16th, 2022- “Ridiculous”

After a rough week being sick, I’m up and ready to finish what I’ve started. However, let me clarify I didn’t stay home because of being sick. I went to work wearing my mask all day. I’ve to be up by 4:00 am and ready to go by 5:20 am. At the end of the workday at 1:30 pm when back home directly to bed without doing anything else. I’ve been exhausted from working and sick at the same time.

 

On Friday, I was feeling much better and went to work as normal. However, I wasn’t counting on this. The day before we got 10 inches of snow so after I got to work, they announced the schools from our district would have a 2-hour late start. Okay, not too bad. I was in school already and classes would begin at 10. No breakfast for the kiddos so I did my bookwork, my food orders for the week, and the inventory for the week. I was ahead of my work. At 8:30, I got an alert on my phone that school was canceled because of the road conditions. Really? Why the school district didn’t decide it earlier?

 

The roads were awful. It was hard to get out of the parking lot. And guess what happened next. I got stuck on the road almost got into a ditch. I’ve to call my husband. It took almost half an hour to get my vehicle out of the snow. I got home safely after all the hazards.

What a morning? Nope, I didn’t go back to bed. Instead, I’ve been cleaning the house. The rest of my Friday and all-day Saturday, but it’s done.

 

It feels good to be home. Here it is a ridiculous day in my life especially when I began to feel better. On the positive thought, I’m ahead on my paperwork from work and have all my chores caught up.

 

It’s time to relax and enjoy my day reading.

JusJoJanuary 2nd, 2022- gobbledygook

It’s Sunday morning and I’m trying to figure out what is gobbledygook. I’ve never heard this word before so I’ve to google it. When I read the definition, I made an awe expression on my face. My granddaughter who was getting juice smiled and ask what’s going on. I asked her if she ever heard of the word gobbledygook. She also made an awe expression; however, she did say its sounds like a turkey talking to another turkey. We both laugh and my granddaughter says here to gobbledygook that I still don’t know what it is. My morning started with a wonderful laugh.

Thank you so much, Dan, for making me laugh with my granddaughter. Now, gobbledygook would be a word that we both will remember for a long time.

#JusJoJan prompt the 18th~ “Wish”

Where is the genie? I will love to be granted a few wishes. One of them would be the Covid-19 been completely gone forever. Second, on Wednesday, Jan 20th a peaceful Presidential inauguration. It’s time to heal all the hatred and the nastiness. It should stay in the past. No more racism and hatred. We can have our differences and have respect for others. We need to move and to show our children there still hope for them. Adults need to stop acting childless. Enough it’s enough. That’s my “wish”.

Gobbledygook or gibberish a funny way to make our own words and make them have sense. Especially when we are playing scrabble and want to win the game. I do that all the time.

JusJoJan 2020: Day 16~ experience

This morning I hire a person to work in our school cafeteria. When they post the position they ask for resumes, recommendations, and they ask for experience. However, in my opinion, I prefer a person with no or a little experience. Since I can train the person the way I want them to work. I can’t stand when I’m training and the person begins saying in my other job I did it this way. How many times I will like to say to them, you are not working in the other place. How many times I have to remind them we have to follow the school district regulations. That’s one of the reasons I prefer a no experience applicant and the majority of the time they become better employees.

JusJoJan: Day 13~ “Subscribe”

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 13th, 2020, is “subscribe.” Use the word “subscribe” any way you’d like. Have fun!

We dropped The Cable a few years ago to subscribe to Dish TV. This service lasts around 3 years until they began dropping some channels. However, the bill payment didn’t drop a penny. We lost some of our favorite channels like HBO, Cinemax, and all my Spanish channels. To watch my telenovelas, they offer us a Latino channel package it ended being more expensive if we decide to add it.

We call customer service if they have something to offer us as an upgrade on the DVR box, I want the Hopper box. Their response was a big NO. I always think about what kind of employees prefer to lose a customer instead of offering a better deal. Employees like that it’s what ruins a business, and supposedly a great company.

We bought an antenna so we can watch the local channels and subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, and Prime. And a free year of Disney plus thanks to Verizon also we are saving money.

JusJoJan: Day 12 ~ “Gravity Falls”

Who has watched the children shows from Disney Gravity Falls?

My granddaughters love to watch Disney XD and Gravity Falls was one of those shows they got hooked. Right away, they suggest I should watch it, too. Guess what, I also became hooked. We thought the show was funny and we like how every episode turns into a mystery. Unfortunately, it only lasts two seasons and as a good fan of the show, we were faithful until the end.

My granddaughters still watch the reruns, they have the books and the Mystery journal. Until recently, I was checking the show on YouTube and I saw some comments from some parents. They think the show wasn’t appropriate for young children, because of some of the jokes. Also, they were glad the show was over. I can’t believe when I read those comments. Sincerely I don’t see anything wrong with the show.

My girls are hoping to see a third season or a movie. Honestly, me too.

#SoCS & #JusJoJan 2020 Daily Prompt – Jan. 11th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “the first 3 words of the first full sentence.” Okay, follow me here. This is what I want you to do: 1. Grab the closest book to you when you sit down to write your post. 2. Open it to a random page. 3. Locate the first complete sentence on that page. 4. Use the first three words of that sentence to start your post, then take it from there–write whatever comes to mind. That’s it! Have fun!

Thirty years ago, I was living in Puerto Rico. We have our two oldest kids and we were living in his grandmother’s house. My husband has a part-time job and he was in the Army National Guard. Money was tight and I can’t even find a job.

My husband decided for our family to join the ARMY in May 1989. He already has the basic training from the National Guard so it was an easy process simply filling the paperwork, signing- in and moved. His first assignment the state of Texas. We follow him in October 1989. My two oldest kids were 5 and 3. It was one of the hardest decisions we have made, however it was the right one. The only regret we have it’s being so far away from our families.

Otherwise, our lives have been great, we have a chance to travel and live in different countries. Our favorite has been Nuremberg, Germany the best 4 years of our life. However, from living a great life also we were aware of the dangerous situations any person who joins the military. My husband has been in two wars “Desert Storm” in Kuwait 1990 and the Iraq War 2003. Also, he would be gone for weeks or months for training we barely got to see him. He retired in 2008 when he suffered an injury in one of the trainings.
