3TC Pl 119

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing!

Today’s prompt: hug, courage, paprika

******

I hug my pillow tightly

I try to be courageous

and have courage but I am so scared

I awoke from a nightmare

I stare

Open mouthed

Heart racing

Arms flailing

Anxiety rising

Then, all of a sudden

My dog comes to greet me

His soft fur feels warm and cosy

I nestle into his soft fur

My head resting on his neck

All thoughts of nightmares gone

For a fleeting moment

I have a responsibility to nitro

I need to see that he’s ok

This keeps me distracted

Until the feelings disapate

And once again

I feel ok

and can start my day

Feeling happy and content

I need my therapist so bad right now

I really want to text my therapist. I need her so bad right now. I feel so alone. I cant text her, as its gone midnight. But I can email her which I did. The kids are scared and upset. They’ve been crying a lot tonight. They hate the dark. We dont really feel safe. we are feeling anxious and unsafe which is hard to cope with. Nitro is helping though. I just really need her right now. I wish I had her here with me. I have goten out my willow tree figures. She has some of those in her office and haivng mine out is helping me to feel connected to her. I have also gotten out my fleece throw. I wrapped up in it and that also helps me feel connected to her as she has one in her office which she wraps around us when we’re doing memory work. I hate feeling so needy. But I just cant help it. We just feel emotional. And overwhelmed.

Bad dreams

I woke with horrible dreams. Its awful. I cant go back to sleep. I decided to get up.

The dreams were of people hurting us. I wont go into it but needless to say they were very scary.

Now the kids are super scared. They are afraid someone is going to get in to our house and hurt us. I am trying to soothe them. It isn’t working.

I hate, hate bad dreams. I did sleep for about 3 hours though which is something I suppose. Its the most I’ve slept in about 2 weeks.

If anyones around could use a hug and some support.

Story starter challenge, an old one from march

The prompt word for this story starter was, help! A good prompt word I thought!
So here goes here is my take on it!

Help! She screamed as she jumped up out of bed! Something had startled her. She had heard a noise.
What is it? Her mom said running in!
I don’t know! She was shaking now, and starting to cry.
Big tears rolled down her face, as her mom hugged her tight.
Your ok! Nothing can harm you! Its going to be ok!
She tried to soothe her little girl, but she was so fearful it was difficult to get her to calm.
I thought, I thought someone was breaking in to our house!
No, no no! No one was doing that her mom soothed!
Now come on, come downstairs with me and I will make you a mug of hot chocolate!
The little girls eyes lit up at that suggestion. She hugged her mom one final time and then got out of bed and followed her to the door.
Are you sure its ok? She peeked around the door.
Yes, sweetie her mom said, I’m sure. Now come on, lets go!

Update on the wasp situation

Well, I decided to talk to my supervisor today about the wasps. She is a community development worker, and I thought, if anyone knows anything about someone in the community that can help me, then she will. So I told her about the wasps when she picked me up.

She said as soon as we got to the office she’d ring the maintenance man that works for cork city partnership. So she did. He said we needed a professional, that it would be dangerous to allow just anyone to go near the wasps, in case they attacked.

She decided after talking to the maintenance guy, to ring the community warden, since I told her I’d rang the city council and there was no response from them. She got through to the warden, and she told her the council weren’t going to do anything about it, that it wasn’t up to them to actually do anything.

So then we went to mr. google. We googled pest control. And we found a local pest control place. I rang my neighbour and she offered to split the cost with me, if I got them to come out, since the problem is in her house also. So I rang the pest control place, the girl I spoke to said that a technician would call me back, but that it would be early next week before they could call me back.

Luckily I am not going to be home for the weekend, so that’s fine with me if I have to wait until next week. Their website says they deal with wasps, so I am hopeful they can handle it.

In the meantime, my neighbour said she has been researching, and she found some recipes online for natural ways to deter the wasps. So tomorrow she is going to go get the ingredients for one of the recipes, and make it, and try that in the meantime to see if it does anything. I gave her permission to also spray my windows, just in case it does anything, but I’m very doubtful that it will.

So that’s where things stand right now. I’m hoping by next week this whole mess will be sorted. I just want rid of the pesky buggers.
