The aide is now on week 4 which is amazing and I got my desire to write back again, at least for one short story. We’ll see where it goes from there.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 11, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “where.” Use it any way you’d like!

***************

Where am I going? This should be very simple as I am going to work and I go there 5 times a week, but for some odd reason (probably the fibromyalgia) I simply forget where and how to get there.

Here are the rules for SoCS:

Non-Fiction

To my dear friends!

I went into the hospital on Wednesday morning because my feet and legs were swollen, My feet was the size of a baseball and no way I could put my shoes on, I called the dr who had been treating me all week. He said to go into the ER so in I went and I was kept 3 days while they tried to get rid of all that fluid. It sure held on to me. They were pumping me full of liquid lasix (water pill at home and IV at the hospital) and it wasn’t doing anything. My diet was controlled from practically no salt and only 12 ounces of fluid to drink or eat and if I ate it for example, soup, I couldn’t drink it. It finally went down and I came home and I have to be very careful with my salt/sodium intake which allows me practically nothing. He increased my fluid intake to no more than 50 ounces. Most of my normal foods have too much sodium. I think I might actually be below the daily amount, but that is the amount for a normal person without problems so wonder what my sodium level is. I don’t think he told me.

Non-Fiction, Prompt, Share Your World

SHARE YOUR WORLD 9-6-2021

SHARE YOUR WORLD 9-6-2021

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is sywmaskissa.jpg

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  Additionally, I offer a ‘Gratitude’ Section for those who like a little affirmation with their questions!  It’s optional to participate in that of course. 

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Create a Share Your World post. 
  2. Then post the link to that blog post.
  3. Alternatively, leave your answers in the comments box of this post.
  4. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  5. Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why that happens is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!
  6. Some questions might be recycled from time to time.  Sorry if they come too close together!  The number of interesting questions (to me) is finite.   I try to mix them up judiciously but bungle that sometimes.  Mea culpa!

QUESTIONS

Do you believe in soul-mates?  (my definition of ‘soul mate’ is the IDEAL partner romantically). No can’t say that I do. Or at least I have not met him in my 65 years of life. Even my marriage was a disaster.

What are three scents you like? Cinnamon, lilac, and pumpkin pie spice

What are some things that you might be considered too old to do, but that you enjoy? Streaming live on YouTube. I enjoy it, but some people don’t like it considering the recent hate raids on Twitch.

What is one food you absolutely refuse to share? Seafood of any kind and ice cream. I know that is two, but no sharesies.

A True Funny Story – My Hair Appointment

My hair appointment with my stylist was Friday and since she is so popular I had to wait three weeks for this appointment. So yesterday, just before my appointment, I was talking to my neighbor about how long I had been waiting for this appointment and my hair was so shaggy and long. So I said to him “Come Hell or high water” I was going to this appointment and I already had one problem since my walker wheel had come off and I was struggling with the old aluminum one I had, but I was going to get my hair done, dammit!

  1. Barely moments after I said this there was a tremendously loud crash of thunder and a huge lightning bolt hit very close. I had rarely heard thunder that loud and so I guess the storm was right on top of us and then another neighbor comes running down the hall.
  2. She goes that lightning bolt split the big tree in front of her apartment (we’re on the 6th floor which happened to be a good thing) as the tree split in half and fell across towards the front entrance. I glanced over to the first neighbor and was speechless. That wasn’t the end.
  3. Next thing you know the lightning hit the building and knocked out the electricity which accomplished two things.
  4. One, the fire alarms started screeching and those suckers are loud and I am hard of hearing so I can only imagine how people who can hear must have felt and….
  5. Two, when the fire alarms go off the elevators shut down for a fire.
  6. My neighbor hands me my phone and says, “Make the call, you aren’t going anywhere!”

I don’t know if we had high water, but we sure had Hell. The divine guy upstairs wasn’t amused at what I said I guess.

And even if was crazy enough to go out in that weather, I can’t walk down 5 flights of stairs to the bottom floor with a walker and if I didn’t get struck by the crazy lightning if I could get out of the door, my windshield wipers on my car do not work thus I wouldn’t have been able to see to drive.

Needless to say, someone was determined I was going to keep this mop of hair for now.
