#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”.

JusJoJan Day 19: “Gobbledygook”

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 19th, 2020, is “gobbledygook.” Use the word “gobbledygook” any way you’d like. Have fun!


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.

JusJoJanuary 9th, 2020 ~”Scrumptious”

Today’s word “Scrumptious” is a word I have never used. I prefer to use “yummy” or “delicious”. Talking about food I went for my yearly checkup and the doctor asks if I enjoy eating during the holiday. She smiles and said if I was planning to blame it all on the holidays. Yes, I’m going to blame it all on those scrumptious desserts. Ha!

Yes, I did enjoy it all the food and I’m paying the consequences because my A1C was high. I will try to be back to my healthy eating habits and cut down on everything that it’s causing all this trouble. Since I love sweets, I know I’ll have cravings and temptations. What a way to start my 2020.

My husband gave me the look of “I told you so”. He thinks he’s funny and cute.

This prompt was fun to write, thank you to Maggie at From Cave Walls.

SoCS~ Junk Mail

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!


These days I don’t get as much mail I use to receive. I check my mailbox and this time I receive only junk mail. One from a bank to apply for a credit card and the second a flyer for a store I never visited. So, I got garbage. For the bank application I send it back in the pre-paid envelope. In fact, I don’t know if this will stop the companies to send me more of their mail. However, my brother tells me they don’t like it because they lose money on postage.


Even I don’t receive lots of mail anymore, I do like when I get my catalogs and my magazines. I still love opening my mailbox and get my catalogs and my magazines. I feel wanted when I get mail no matter if it’s junk mail.

It’s time to celebrated for so many reasons. First, Congratulations to Linda for five years of SoCS I love writing the prompts its challenging. Second, I’m celebrating the arrival of March, this weekend should be the last frigid weather lasting until Tuesday, and third next week it will be our spring break. I don’t have any special plans for those days, however a little break from school it’s going to be nice.


Also, during the month of March I will be celebrating my 36th anniversary on the 5th, my granddaughter’s 12 birthday on the 24th, and my youngest son’s 27th birthday on the 26th. March is a special month for celebrations and to be happy. I won’t let the depression take over myself and ruin it all.


For now, until the snows melt, I will keep doing what I like to do the most. I will celebrate the month of March reads a few books. Then I will be planting and cleaning my yard so I can enjoy it again.
