#SOCS Beside you

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “beside you.” Write about whatever is beside you when you read this

****

I am sitting writing this post on my laptop while I am sitting on the bed in my bedroom at my parents house!
Beside me is a table, and on it there is a tv, which is broken, and a bottle of water which I am currently drinking!
I’ve drank a ton of water today! I love it!
On the other side of me is the wall, which is cold to the touch!
Its not a very exciting bedroom! It is my old room from when I lived here!
Well, as long as I have somewhere to plug in my phone, I’m good! And there are plugs next to me also so win win!

#stream of consciousness late but, your welcome to read!

Lindas prompt for us this week for stream of consciousness saturday is the word, welcome! She has challenged us to use welcome any way we want to just so long as we write in stream of consciousness format!

*****
When all this social distancing is finally over, I will welcome being able to go places again, and being able to be with others!
I so want the summer to come! I hope the covid19 virus is gone by summer! Because I want to do fun stuff during the summer, not sit at home self isolating!
But it does look like the self isolation might go on into june! I hope not, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens! Its a very scary time for us all! I am so afraid!
We’ve had two more deaths this evening in ireland from covid19. That brings our total to six who have died. Not many I know but remember Irelands population is only 4.5 million.
We have over 1200 cases of covid19 now over here. The number is growing with each day that passes. My friend Pat who lives in Dublin told me his brother was tested for the virus, he doesnt know yet whether he’s contracted it or not. Hopefully he hasnt.
How are you coping with the social distancing and being at home? How do you find it?

#Socs: Wire!

Galloping across the garden
Tail waggling
Eyes bright
Running, jumping
As he collides with me
Panting, licking me
He’s like a live wire
Full of energy
He keeps me on my toes
My cute doodlebug
Or as I like to call him
My monster doodle
Its his nickname
And it suits him
As he nudges me with his wet nose
And I pat his head
I think about
How my life would be
If he wasnt in it
And I am so grateful each day
For my wonderful lab
His gentleness and gentle nature
Never ceases to amaze me

Last call!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: last call. Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business youre not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

****
The last call I recieved was from my phone service provider!

The first call they made to me, I missed it! I tried calling the number back, but I got an automated voice, saying, someone from Eir was trying to get hold of you!

Well damn! I suppose now I have to wait for you to try again!

Which they did eventually!

Why were they calling me?

To tell me I owed money on my bill, and I needed to pay it or I’d be cut off! Well damn again!

What normally happens is, your bill comes out, but they only give you two weeks to pay it off, this bill comes once a month, and mine is usually about 150 euro!

I know that seems expensive, but I have phone, broadband and tv with them!

Anyway, did I pay it off? No, not yet! Lol!

So I suppose they’ll call me again soon to tell me pay it or else!

They only ever call me when they want my money! Either for the bill, or else they might call to ask me to add a service, or upgrade my plan!

Why dont they ever call and tell me hey, we’re giving you something, a free month maybe?

Fat chance of that!

2020 is almost here!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is year. Use it any way youd like. Enjoy!

**********
Another year is ending. I’ve done a ton of stuff this year. I’ve made so much progress in my healing. I am very proud of how far we’ve come this past year. Eileen said similar to us at our last therapy session before the christmas break. I am hopeful that 2020 will be an even better year than 2019 was. Wow! Imagine we’ll have to try to remember to write 2020 on everything! I think I’ll be forgetting to do it lol. I am hoping in 2020 to lose a lot more weight. I have a lot to look forward to next year. My niece Lauren is making her confirmation in March. So my goal is to lose as much weight as I can between now and the end of march. My plan is to exercise a lot. Every day, if I can. I am already eating much more healthier, but I havent been exercising that much. That needs to change. I need to become more motivated. Then after the celebrations in march, I wont have long to go before I head to colorado in May. Before that though it is my birthday. A big birthday next year, I’ll be 40. I’m going away for my birthday to Killarney, our second home. We love going to Killarney. I’ll be going with my mom, sister and the two kids. We’ve got a 2 night break planned for the weekend of my birthday. I cant wait. Then in May just before we head off to colorado we’re going to Killarney again, for 3 nights, for my aunts 50th birthday. Thats happening the weekend before I go to colorado. I will also be graduating from college. I am not sure yet when the graduation is but it will probably be in april or May. I am excited for graduation. I hope I’ll make it. Depending on what I am doing, I may not. But I really hope I will. I really wanna wear the cap and gown. So a lot is happening in this upcoming year ahead. So much to look forward to. I havent really made new years resolutions, I guess my only real one is to lose weight, that is my big goal. I hope I will get there. I want it so bad. I will also be retiring Nitro this coming year. He’s 9 now so coming up on retirement age. I am not getting another dog. I will be keeping him as a pet when he retires, and I will be getting some training with my white cane, to learn some new routes around my home. I will be sad to have to retire Nitro. But he’s had a good working life, now its time for him to enjoy what remains of his life now.

#Socs: Being chris kringle!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ingle. Find a word that contains ingle and use it any way youd like in your post. Have fun!

*****
Its time for me to play santa! Or Chris kringle! Or well, whatever word you say! I said kris kringle cuz I had to find a word with ingle in it! And well, its that festive time of the year so…
But tonight we’re handing out christmas presents to family! I love doing that!
Its not immediate family, but I will give my god mother who also happens to be my aunt, a gift. I will also give my favourite aunt a gift, cuz we always give one another gifts at birthdays, and christmas!
I wonder what I’ll get! The excitement is bubbling!
I got my favourite aunt a voucher to a spiritual store she likes. And I got my god mother pajamas!
Oh I forgot I also got one of my uncles a gift! He’s my moms brother, he has no one to celebrate christmas with, so I decided he needed a little present, to cheer him up!
I must say, I love gift giving!
I enjoy choosing what I will get for people!
Do you like gift giving? Or do you love recieving the gifts?

This post was in response to Linda G hills stream of consciousness prompt!
Happy Saturday!

#Socs prompt: bad dreams!

I am participating this week in Linda G Hills prompt for socs!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is dream. Use it as a noun or a verb; use any way youd like. Enjoy!

My night last night was filled with bad dreams! Horrible nightmares! It was pure hell!
I sat up after each one, shaking uncontrollably, too scared to go back to sleep.
I thought to myself, this sucks!
All I wanted was a few uninterrupted hours of sleep! It wasnt to be though!
Instead I was wide awake, stressing!
At least there’s nothing on my agenda today. I can chill!
Happy saturday everyone! And, adios to nightmares and bad dreams!
