my internet was down all day!

so i’ve had no internet all day! it went off around 1 Pm. i was so bored! at first i never noticed it had gone off. i only noticed after about 2 hours. i thought it was just my laptop giving me problems at first, since i’d had a few problems with the computer last night.

i tried everything but nope it wouldnt work! so eventually i checked my phone, and yeah, the mobile data was off! i reset the network, i tried turning the mobile data off and on again, i tried everything I could think of to fix it but still there was nothing!
so i just had to be without it. omg guys! have you tried it? being without the internet i mean? what did we ever do without it! when there was no online world, what did we do then? i’ve never watched so much tv! i watched it for hours, because there was literally nothing else to do!

i dont have wifi at mom and dads, I use my data and use my phones hotspot to connect to the computer! so well I am not sure if the wifi would have even worked either!

I tried calling my providers customer service line, but I got a recording, that said we’re having a major system outage! Go figure! Probably shoulda done that first, right guys? But I didnt! Oh well!

I just waited…and waited…and waited for it to come back on! And finally! Finally after many hours, it did! Yay! I’ve never been so happy! Its great! Now I feel normal again!

Lol I am addicted, what can I say!

Will be privatising the blog soon

I need to set my blog to private for a while.
I will be doing this very soon.
I am ok, I just feel like I need to monitor my blog a little more closely than I have been doing.
I am going to send out invites to those who want to continue to keep following, but I will only send them out to those I either know well, or who comment, or have commented in the past. If you want an invite to keep reading my posts, please email me to let me know.
my email is

You can also request access on the homepage once I go private, if I know you and recognise your username, I’ll add you.

The blog will only be public for a day or so then it will go private. I am not sure if I’ll stay private for good, but for now, its what I need to do.
Thank you all for walking with me on this journey. Invites will be coming to your email from me soon.

#SoCs September 15th: Post

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “post.” Use it as a word, or find a word that uses it as a prefix. Have fun!
Post. Four little letters. But oh so important when you blog. Writing a post, the important bit of blogging. Making that first post is always hard, but once you do it, once you get started, you never look back. At least, thats how it was for me.

I love my blog. I love writing posts. I love the interactions with other readers. I love it all. I am so so glad I started blogging. It has really changed my life in so many great ways.

Whether its a post about cooking or a recipe, a quote, a general life update, a post about therapy, or my psychiatrist apts, all of my posts mean something to me. All of them are special to me. I hope they mean something to others too.

Its so wonderful when other writers read my posts and comment and or like them. I get a buzz every time I see a like or comment come through. I never stop getting that buzz. I love it.

Well I’ll catch yall later guys! Happy reading!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 15/18

Milestone. 3000 followers!

So I did it! I reached 3000 followers on this blog! I am beyond thrilled! 😀 this is great news!

This blog means so much to me. You all mean the world to me. I am so so proud to know each and every one of you. You are all so loyal, and you give me such incredible support.

Thank you guys! You have been amazing!

This community is so amazing. My blog has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. I only have all of you to thank for this. I am in awe of how far I’ve come.

Thank you all for sticking with me. I hope my posts inspire you or make you think. I hope my journey isn’t in vein. I don’t think it is though. So many of you have either written me privately, commented on here, liked my posts, etc. I am so grateful for that.

I hope this blog continues to grow over the next 12 months. I will do all I can to grow it, and make it a success. I hope you’ll all come along for the ride.

Thanks again,

Carol anne

A bit of wisdom

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.
be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
it never was between you and them anyway.


#Stream of consciousness Saturday post on a sunday?

 this week…Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “bodily function.” Decide on one or write about a whole bunch of bodily functions.


I’m gonna write about two…vomit, and sneezing!


Does nitro being sick qualify, even though he’s a dog?


I’ll chance it lol. His vomiting finally subsided after a day. So now he’s right as rain again! Thank god!


But on Saturday my dads dog got sick! He was also vomiting, during the night, in his bed, and my dad bc he has bad eyesight, just picked up his bed and blankets and put them away and if it wasnt for my mom noticing the vomit we’d have never known he was ill!


As for sneezing, I’ve been doing a helluva lot of it today! I hope I am not going to get a summer cold! Maybe I am allergic to something in the air? Or dog hair? Or dust particles? Who knows! Its so annoying though to constantly feel as if your gonna sneeze!


Well thats my little stream of consciousness take on bodily functions, hope you enjoyed!
