SoCS is…


Is that really the time? I’ve been trying to sit down at the computer all day. But with the kids going away for two weeks to their dad’s – yes, two whole weeks kidless – I’ve been running around like a headless horseman… where did that come from?… trying to take care of everyone. No, that doesn’t mean I’ve packed a damned thing. But Alex wanted to spend time with my mother and Chris needed his chicken McNuggets and Alex wanted to play Life (dad doesn’t have Life… the game that is. He has a life) and do a puzzle and later we have to build Lego… Maybe I can convince him to help me pack.

Packing isn’t a big deal for me. I regularly pack the night before I go on a plane trip, to stay somewhere for a couple of weeks. If I’m gone for a weekend I pack a few minutes before I walk out the door. I remember making long long lists once upon a time. Especially when I went camping. Ah, I used to love camping. Now I don’t think my body could take it.

Speaking of my body, I have a mosquito bite on the bottom of my foot. On the ball of my foot. Feels great just to stand up. My shoulder is almost back to normal, and with only one visit to the physiotherapist. He gave me a bunch of exercises to do, but it seems like it was going to get better no matter what. I think the steroid injection did most of the work.

Speaking of work, I think I’m just about finished my edits on my novel. I need a few people to read the first couple of chapters though, to tell me if it makes any sense. I’m too involved in it to tell. I read it and I think it’s okay, but I’m not sure if it sounds pretentious. I dunno. Any volunteers?

So now I’m trying to decide what the title of this post alludes to. SoCS is good for some things, like getting everything out of the mind that’s been sitting there for a while. Like clearing the cobwebs away from the back of the china cabinet that no one has moved in six years because they don’t want to take all the china out.

SoCS is bad for keeping on track on a subject. So let’s see… SoCS is…

  1. Thinking about you with all the fires going on right now. Hope you’re all okay. (umm…You are in Canada, right? If not, then…well, still – hope you’re all okay. πŸ™‚ )


  2. I’m still trying to envision how on earth you got a mosquito bite on the ball of your foot. I wouldn’t have thought mosquitoes could do that. Nonetheless, glad to hear your shoulder is better. It’s not a pretty time when your shoulder give out. I know, I had it happen to me a couple of years now and through rigorous exercises I’m glad to report I’m 100%. Keep at it, Linda!


    • My shoulder issues started with tendonitis and progressed to a frozen shoulder. It’s good to have some use in it! I’ll keep at it, thanks for the encouragement, Jack. πŸ™‚
      Seems we have some pretty tough mosquitos out this way, eh? πŸ˜›

  3. What’s the genre of your novel, Linda? I could probably make the time.


  4. Have a great two weeks. (enjoyed the post)


  5. Enjoy your 2 weeks for yourself Linda, wish you a wonderful time, so you are recharged, when your kids come back home πŸ˜€


  6. Well if you have to have a mosquito bite, I guess the bottom of your foot would not be a bad location if you walk on it when it itches. National Bird, ha! I would be a volunteer reader, too. Have a great and relaxing break. πŸ™‚


  7. Stream of consciousness has a few tributaries, huh? Been there a time or two…


  8. I’ll read your chapters if you would like.


  9. Sorry I missed this one Linda. Great job and some great responses.


  10. skeeter bite on the bottom of your foot?? yikes! Quelle horreur ! I don’t like insects, but skeeters are some of the worst! I wish you luck with your novel, and I am sure it “makes sense” ! As far as your last sentence goes, “SoCS is…” awesome πŸ™‚
