And, they’ve started!

Fireworks! They are booming! And poor nitro is scared!

He’s shaking and panting a lot!

I brought him in to the bedroom with me and shut the door. I have the tv on to drown out the noise.

I am hoping they dont last for too long! He will need to go out later on! I cant let him go out now though. Just in case one goes off while he’s out doing his business!

Poor boy! He’s a big scardy cat!


Answered prayers!

Well it looks as if my prayers were answered! There might not be any trick or treaters coming by tonight!

I was kinda hoping there wouldnt be! Its raining now so it looks like my prayers were answered!

I hate this night. I dont hate kids, and I want them to celebrate, but this is a hugely triggering night for me, and I wont open the door to anyone.

Not for any reason!

I just want to hibernate. I am staying put indoors. I am just chilling out with nitro. I feel like I just need to do what I can to get through tonight safely.

Me and the rest of my system are quite apprehensive about tonight, just because of the things we went through for many many years at the hands of our abusers.

We just want peace, if that means staying indoors, and hiding out, then so be it.


Ah damn!

I woke up this morning feeling like shit! I actually woke during the night and I couldnt swallow, my throat felt all scratchy and dry.
I took some lemsip which is an over the counter med and now its a little bit better.
I am staying home today, was meant to go visit my friend this morning but I asked her if she wanted to come here instead since I am not feeling good.
I am waiting for a reply from her!
If there is one thing i hate its feeling sick, but then again, I dont know anyone who likes to be ill!
Well my friend replied, and she’s coming over yay!
We’ll hang out for a while and just chat!
I put my heat on as its freezing here this morning!
After my friend leaves I think I will read for a while!


#One liner wednesday, halloween special!

Its halloween tomorrow! I hate halloween! I think I’ll hide out with my book, a hot chocolate, and turn out my lights and hope no littlies come to my door!
I’m the halloween grinch, lol!
Anyone else hate tricker treaters?


#writephoto prompt

Welcome to this week’s write photo prompt. You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humor… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT) Wednesday 30th October and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family-friendly.

**Please note that many people on WordPress are having problems with pingbacks not getting through. They do need to be approved manually before they show on the post here, but to be sure, please also leave a comment on this post, linking back to your response to the prompt so that I know you have posted. **

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a hooded figure in the darkness, silhouetted against flames that echo its shape. The figure holds something in its hand that may, perhaps, be a wand…


darkness casts a shadow

over the woods

in the distance

a lone figure

casts a spell

Hocus pocus

abra kadabra

let darkness prevail

over the land

and let magic

rule this night!


So nervous!

I am so nervous
I feel it all over my body
Nervous because
Of this time of year
I hate it
October is one of our worst months
Comes and
We get so scared
Monsters are real
at least they were in our childhood
So much
bad stuff
happened on the lead up
to halloween night
all I want
is for the memories
to go away
take flight
and leave me be
its hard to live in fear
of being so overwhelmed
that you sink
