The storm is over and I survived!

So I survived th e storm!

I didnt sleep too good, but its over now, and everything and everyone is ok.

It was a pretty bad one all things considered. The wind was really howling, and it rained a lot. There was a ton of damage, but my parents house didnt get damaged thank goodness.

I’d say I only got about 3 hours sleep last night, I just couldnt drop off, the wind was just too loud. Nitro slept though, he wasnt too scared at all.

This morning, its like really calm. Its definitely the calm after the storm.


Busy day at work!

Work today was very busy. Even though there were 3 of us doing the calls, it was still busy. We all did a lot more than usual. That was because some of the clients werent answering, so we had to do call backs, which takes more time. WE have to do that though, to make sure they’re all ok.
I’m almost finished now. I’m getting a ride home from one of the other volunteers, he’s been joking with me asking me how much it costs in a taxi. He’s a terrible joker. He’s really funny though. I love his sense of humour.
I’m going home now to have my vegetable soup. And relax for the evening. The storm is coming soon I think. Storm hannah. I thought it was storm helena but its actually called hannah. I’ll be batoning down the hatches for the evening. I hope we dont lose power. Otherwise I’m going to be sooo bored.


When it comes to soul mates…

I decided to participate in sarah elizabeths writing prompt. Her prompt is below and my answer is below that.

When it comes to Soul Mates

I found my soul mate on the internet.

Unfortunately she lives far, far away from me. She lives in the USA.

We cant be together, because right now she’s in a residential psych facility in Illinois.

I miss her every day. We are like two peas in a pod, we always said we are the ying and yang. We compleete each other.

I have seen her lots of times, I traveled to the US to be with her for many many years.

Those were some of the greatest moments of my life, those trips, they were awesome.

My dream has always been to live in the USA. Maybe some day, who knows what the future holds.

If she ever gets out of there, I’ll be here. WE still talk but not as much now, its harder to talk openly, she only gets a few short minutes to take a call.

When we met, we met in a chatroom for people who have did, yes, she has did like I do. She isnt blind, she is sighted, we met, started emailing back and forth, and we went from there. We were so attuned with each other.

I find it difficult not being able to just email her, or talk to her when I want to.

I hold on to the memories of our many happy times together. Those are just the best times.

And heres a video of us, together, for anyone who wants to watch.

Of course I am the chicken of the storm here…



My broadband issue is fixed

So earlier today a guy from my broadband tech support team came out to my house to fix ongoing issues with the connection. It kept dropping. This morning, it was down for hours. I wasnt sure why this was happening. I have Efibre, so it really shouldnt happen at all. He looked at it, and then he said he’d test my line. He did that, and it looked like my upload speed wasnt set high enough, so he reset that first. Then he tested again, but there were still faults on the line, so he said he’d look at the phone sockets, and so he did. And what do ya know! The phone sockets were hit by lightning! Thats what he told me! When we had the last storm lightning must have fried them! So that is why the connection was dropping, so he installed all new phone sockets for me, and woohoo we’re back in business, everythings fine again! I was never so glad than when he fixed it, you should’ve seen me this morning when it was down, I had no clue what to do with myself, I literally was twiddling my thumbs! I could read, and I did, but that was about all I could do. He was a very nice guy too, very chatty and we had a good chat as he worked. So at least its fixed now. He gave his number to me just in case there are any more issues. There shouldnt be though. I was just stunned when he said the phone line was fried! I never expected that to happen!


Writing prompt…

When it rains, it pours. Case in point…

That’s how I feel right now about the amount of rain we’re having! I know this is quite a different take on the question posed, but…rain! I mean guys, its almost May! It shouldn’t be raining so hard outside, we actually had a huge storm last night, and now its still pouring down outside! And I gotta go out in it, as I have to go to therapy!

Storms trigger us big time! We were so scared during the night, we didn’t sleep well at all, tossing and turning a lot. There wasn’t any thunder, just rain and high winds. But still we felt really scared, so we brought Nitro on the bed with us and snuggled up to him.

That felt so good. Felt so grounding. Snuggling him always helps!

Writing Prompt #15

3 things challenge, march 12th

I am participating in Paulas 3 things challenge today.

Todays prompt: lozenge, mission, raincoat


My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to go outside, dance in the rain, with my raincoat on, despite coughing, and spluttering all morning.
I can take a lozenge for my throat!
My mission now, is to embrace the day, go out there, and conquer the world!
Weather and all!
And just dont worry if storm Garrett is here!
Who cares!
So now I am off downstairs, to make some toast, and a cup of coffee!
I’ve already had two cups this morning!


Panicked dog?

Nitro is so agitated! He’s really panicking tonight! Panting and shaking like a leaf. I thought it was due to us eating, he started it around the time we were having food. But he’s still going! And we’ve all finished ages ago! He’s standing by my bed now panting and nudging me! I am wondering is it because a storm is coming and he can sense it? I really dont know what is wrong with him. I tried to let him out but he wont go out! He is refusing to come when I call him! Im just not sure whats up with him!
