“The secret of Change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the Old, but building the New“.~Socrates
As a mother of three there was also an ultimatum. If they didn’t follow the house rules there would be consequences. I wasn’t as tough like my husband, but when they didn’t listen or follow the house rules they would be grounded.
On the other hand, as a grandma it’s a different story. We have the same house rules like when I was raising the kids, however when it comes to the grandkids I’m softer.
It’s funny how I can give them the ultimatum with a straight face and when they give me a pouty face I change my mind. They’re well-behaved, polite, respectful, and lovely. They don’t like helping with chores and when they visited they’re messy.
I always want to be the fun grandma as a result, I give the ultimatums to my kids. At this moment they’re living in my shoes also they’re pulling their hair.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is as follows: read closely. When you’re ready to sit down and write your post, look to the publication (book, newspaper, permission slip from your kid’s teacher, whatever you find) closest to you, and base your post on the sixth, seventh, and eighth word from the beginning of the page. Enjoy!
As soon as we get off the elevator, I know something is wrong. This is the first sentence from the book I just received today from the school. Every year during the month of February our elementary schools participate in a reading program they called “one book, one school”. Also, they include fun activities.
This year the book is Fenway and Hattie by Victoria J. Coe. I was reading the papers of the activities for the month and it looks we all going to have fun. Some of the activities are wearing silly hat, mismatch socks, drawings, and wearing pajamas.
The six, seven, and eight words are “off the elevator”. It looks our main character it’s going to have an adventure. The kids are going to enjoy the story. Who doesn’t like dog’s stories?

I’m a coffee drinker. I love coffee since my mother gave me my first sip from her cup. My father also was a coffee lover. If I let him, he would drink coffee all day. That’s one of the things I missed from my dad. I will come from work and he will be waiting to have coffee together. He will ask about my day and we will talk about the movie he was watching or his favorite Spanish soap. Nowadays when I come home it feels empty. My dad is not waiting to have coffee and to share my day. I just sit by myself with my cup of coffee waiting for my grandkids from school. My husband would come from work close to dinner time. When I’m having my coffee, it brings memories of my parents. It makes me feel relax and calm.

The other day I was mentioning to my husband how much weight I’ve lost and no one from my family has said a word. The reason I was making the comment was my sister also has loss some weight. My family has made comments how great she looks. It’s true she looks great; however, why no one has noticed my weight loss. I didn’t get it. I’ve lost 35 pounds and she has loss 20.
However, my sister has bought new outfits in smaller size and for me I’m using the same large pants. Why? Beside I don’t have the time to shop for myself. I would like to wait to lose another 10 pounds. I need to confess I must go shopping. It’s time to join my sister shopping spree. It’s time to get rid of the large pants.
