It’s a SoCS/JusJoJan 3 Twofer

36 Comments

Twofer the price of one, that is. I think I got about two hours of sleep last night with Alex’s coughing, and I’ve had no more than two minutes to myself at any given moment all day. Looking after a sick kid is very demanding on the attention. He’s sleeping peacefully at the moment and so far my two minutes have extended all the way to about twenty.

Still, all day I’ve been thinking about what I could write for SoCS today, given my own prompt, but nothing really stuck out as a good word that started with ‘t.’ Concentration has been a rare thing though, although I have managed to get a lot of blogs read during my minutes between being asked to do this or that, or pay attention, or simply rub his back – not easy to type whilst rubbing someone’s back. So I’ve been here but I haven’t.

I’m seriously ready to drop off to sleep any minute now. Just waiting for the other teenager to go to bed. *sigh*

I have quite a few blog posts lined up in my head for the coming weeks. I still have dozens of pictures to share, and I kept a journal while I was gone as well, though I have to re-read it to see if it’s exciting enough to copy out – perhaps I can spruce it up a little without straying from the facts.

Lots to do, but much of it depends on the kids going back to school next week. It’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow and then on Monday the temperature is supposed to drop to -10C. I hope the rain dries up in the meantime, otherwise we’re going to have a repeat of last year. No fun at all. I shall certainly try not to fall and almost kill myself this year on my paper route.

I’m tired just thinking about it. …who am I trying to kid? I’m just tired. And that would be my whine for the evening.

Oooh, wine! *runs to the kitchen*

  1. I hope Alex is feeling much better today Linda.
    I always keep a travel journal when we go away. I then type it all out and have it printed in a book along with the photos that we take so that in years to come we can look back and remember the little things.

  2. Great thoughts on how living really is, sick family members, teenagers on their own plan, and taking the in between moments to reflect and share. Keep on sharing!

  3. Oh my goodness – I hope Alex gets better quickly for both of your sakes! I have a bit of experience with ‘tired,’ and given all that you have to deal with, I certainly think a little w(h)ine now and then is very much in order ;-). DO be careful on your paper route, especially with the falling temps!

  8. Wishing you both plenty of rest, and a speedy return to health! I often find that sleep deprivation does eventual wonders for my writing, so there’s that…

    Hoping you’re all snuggled in and slumbering too deeply to read this now!
