Every week there is a Prompt on Wednesday so ConfusingMiddle.com. Why don’t you check it out? It’s a cool site. I’ll wait.
Humming, Tapping, Yawning…
Oh, You’re Back! Good, So you now know this week’s Prompt is ‘Virus’ due to Virus Appreciation Week. All, I can say is when I was growing up, if you got sick and the doctors couldn’t pinpoint it, you had a “Virus” and you stayed home from school sick and couldn’t play… not like you felt like playing, anyway.
Today, I bought a bedframe from Amazon (even if it will have to go in storage. Searching for even a cheap apartment, but it sucks when they say two cats max or add a $20 per cat deposit. I am Not regretting my decision not losing Faith. However, I am requesting continued Prayers that something comes open, soon
The Prompt or word of the week at Confusing Middle is Apple. Before I get to it, why don’t you check out the Blog? It’s very interesting and fun. Tell him, Venus sent you. Then, Come Back!
As most of you know, I love to read. Mainly True Stories but a few Fiction Series, as well. The-Flowers-In-The Attic series is one of my favorites. For those of you who don’t know, it’s about 4 children who live in the attic of their Grandparents house and how they escape..or not..but, the books go further to afterwards and when the children grow up and have families of their own. ….What the heck does this have to do with Apples?..I’m glad you asked. Well, actually I am getting there….. In one of the books, a child gets a puppy and names it ‘Apple’! That’s the first thing that came to my mind when I read the Prompt. No, I am not going to tell you what happens to Apple or the children in later years. You need to read the books.
I’ve been sick today and almost went to the hospital. Okay, No, I just really considered it. It is mainly bronchial but with a sore throat, sinus and a terrible headache that wouldn’t quit. But, it finally did, and I took Mucinex, which I think helped a bit. Oh well..I was just thinking that I haven’t been sick in a while and it’s not like I had major (or any) plans this weekend.
Oh, and in case I forgot. Look what came yesterday!
I think it’s the most expensive pillow I have ever had. It’s Sealy with soft, Memory Foam on one side and Firm on the other. I think they call it ‘Alternative Memory Foam”.
The Prompt per The Confusing Middle this week is the word, ‘Pirate’. He posts a word every week to write about. I suggest you check out the site…After you read this…I don’t have all night to wait, you know… Anyway, so this week’s word is Pirate because I believe ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day” is coming up. Personally, that’s not my thing. Plus, how can we still have that when they won’t even make ‘Peter Pan’ anymore?.. probably due to Pirate violence. Now, give me ‘Talk Like A Valley Girl Day’ or ‘Talk In Pig-Latin Day’ and I would be totally into those! Heck, I talk Valley Girl pretty much anyway since I am from California. I never actually lived in The Valley but the lingo is still here. Technically, I think Las Vegas is a Valley, I mean, we are surrounded by Mountains.
Don’t know if I mentioned but my Park Manager is Racist. She does not like people who don’t speak English and is apparently rude to them, plus, comments behind their backs to others. This better not cause a problem for the people buying my house! They don’t speak much English. But, they do already have a place here, so I am hoping that will help them get approved.
Started a Migraine last night which went all night and didn’t quit until this afternoon after a 2nd Imatrex. Luckily, I take Imatrex by halves so it only equalled one actual pill. It was horrible though, and not only on the opposite side of my head then usual but was mainly by my eye.
Oh well, I survived and am living to tell about it.
The Confusing Middle has given us the word, ‘Forgiveness’ as this week’s Prompt. Before I get into this:. Why don’t you go visit the site? It’s really cool and thought provoking….I’ll Wait…
Twiddling my thumbs…do do do do, do do do, do do do do,..do,.. do do do do do, thinking weird thoughts, hmmm..do I have time to o…Oh, You’re back? Great! Hope you are a new Follower for them, now.
Okay, So the first song I think of when thinking of Forgiveness is the one above.
But, Forgiveness does not have to be romantic. God say to forgive others 70 x 7, I believe…I could be mistaken. I know there are a lot of 7’s….
Anyway, Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or that the hurt is gone. Emotional and even physical healing takes time. It doesn’t mean you have to let those people back in your life, either. Forgiveness means you can keep going through life without the hardness in your heart or your need for revenge. It means learning about and setting up Boundaries that you decide and will accept.
So, there’s my post on Forgiveness, and if you didn’t like it, Forgive Me for wasting your time.
My friend over at Theconfusing middle.com gives a Prompt each week. I don’t always participate, as, some Prompts just don’t pertain, but this one is interesting. Before I get into it, why don’t you consider visiting the site? After, you read this. Tell them Venus sent you!
The word for the week is:
Now, I am a woman who can’t sew, and have no desire to learn. In Home Ec in High School, it took half a semester to make a Patchwork Pillow and an ugly Dress..most of which, my teacher did. Knots annoy me and I don’t have the patience to deal with threading a Needle.
Of course, one can’t refer to the Needle without mentioning the “Needle in the haystack.” comment. How it got there in the first place should be considered..I mean, who sews while sitting in hay? Never mind how to find it. Heck, just play in the hay, you’ll find it by getting stabbed..Now, finding a contact lens in shag carpet is more relative to my life.. and a story for another day. But, I digress.
The last type of Needle, I want to discuss, are doctors Needles. Shots, or even the ones to take blood. Having spent the first two years of my life in the hospital and follow up appointments over the years, I am used to Needles. Heck, I have even given myself shots before, when Imatrex came in injection. Needles can be scary, but a necessary part of our health.
And that’s just some examples of Needles. If you want to get literal, there’s Needles, California and Needles plants in the desert.
A friend I Follow at The Confusing Middle….theconfusingmiddle.com…posts prompts every Wednesday and this week is “Independence”. If you haven’t checked out that blog, I highly recommend it. But Go After you read this! After all, I sent you there. That should mean something!
Okay, Now for my thoughts:
Independence Day aka (also known as.. for all you non-English people out there) is the day America celebrates it’s Independence! While I love the idea of the celebration and some of the things we do to celebrate it.. Potlucks,Parades, Festivals and even Store Sales..the one thing I don’t like is the fireworks! There are a few reasons I don’t like them. They’re noisy.. which makes my cats hide and there is no escaping a Migraine attack, But, the main reason is, they are dangerous. I fear fire. If a roof in the park catches fire, it will spread quickly plus, not a year goes by without some idiot burning a finger off, or setting an animal on fire. People go crazy with their “celebrating” with some even shooting guns in the air. Remember, what goes up, must come down, somewhere. Fireworks under controlled settings are okay, although, still loud.
I am proud to be an American and to be free to celebrate it, the way I want. I am just not proud of some of our Americans stupidity.
This Prompt it brought to you by Peckapaloosa over at The ConfusingMiddle.com. If you haven’t checked out his site, you should! After, you read this Post…and, be careful! No running with scissors or knives… Okay, now that that’s covered:
I am not really into Father’s Day anymore, since my Father has passed. My Mother is also gone but I have friends who are Mother’s plus, I am an animal Mother..but, I digress;
Growing up as a Catholic, we used to call our Priest, “Father” which I now know is totally wrong, for many reasons.
The only one I call and actually have for a “Father” is God! He is the Father,Son and Holy Spirit. He is here to listen when I need to talk and teaches me patience, as well, as the right way to live. He understands me and we have a good relationship. My earthly Father, I called, ‘Dad’ and you bet I miss him. I was a ‘Daddy’s Girl’ but, I am still Christ’s Child and he has taken over since my earthly parents have gone.
Truthfully, I believe they should call ‘Father’s Day’ ‘Dad’s Day’. But, that’s just my opinion.
Peckapaloosa… sorry if spelled wrong.. over at Confusing Middle.com has given a prompt I can totally get behind! But first..you should seriously check out his blog. It’s great!
Okay, his word for the week is ‘Purple’!
Coming from a girl who’s favorite color is Purple, what can’t I say? I love Purple especially with the blue base. My inside walls are Purple, my hair is Purple and I dress in Purple most every day. My pots and pans are Purple and so are most of my sheets and towels. I even paint most of my furniture Purple.
Purple is a royal color and one that pops!
My first husband was blah and we had to decorate like everyone else in blacks, whites and browns. I got into color after my Divorce and have never been the same since.
My favorite shade of Purple is the really dark, yet, bright..if you know what I mean.. like a neon, dark Purple.
Thanks so much for this Prompt. This was definitely a fun one.
