Been That Kind Of Day

I’ve done it again. I got up at the butt crack of dawn, went to the bathroom before mom left, stayed up for another two hours and then fell back asleep. I didn’t get back up until almost 2pm. I already know how my night is going to go, even though I got some sleep I’ve got two more movies I can watch. While I was awake this morning, I went through the majority of the movie channels we have and decided to tape a couple of them for the day. I had already finished Cinderella and started All Dogs Go To Heaven 2 before my mom came in to my room so I can go to the bathroom. After that, I stopped the movie and checked to see if anything was going to be on today that would be interesting. I taped three movies, two were taped after I got up, so when I got up I started watching, Hotel Transylvania and I’ve got to say, it was a pretty good movie! Very cute!! If I was a kid, I would have loved it, but lucky for me I’m a kid at heart instead. The other two movies were Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Snow White and the Huntsman, which is still taping at the moment. If I don’t go to work tomorrow I know what I’ll be finishing up.

I was planning on staying up all day and also do a special post about the disease I have, since today is the awareness day for it. My family has shared their support on Facebook, my mom even wore blue scrubs at work today. I’m going to have to remember to plan ahead for next year and do something special for it. I felt lazy and still do at the moment too!! I’ve decided not to talk about my disability tonight. Sorry. It’s 10pm and I’m actually a little tired. I think I need to start going outside more often, because everytime I do that, it wears me out. I also had a one year old play with the buttons of the controller. Don’t worry, I had my feet around the actual controller just in case. She knows how to turn it on and off, plus push the horn. I blame both of my parents fo showing her the buttons. I also had fireworks going off behind me. Scared the living shit out of me, but I don’t think I wasn’t as freaked out as my mom. She doesn’t like fireworks and never has, Blondie and I love them, so you could imagine our childhood of driving our mother insane. She loves us, somewhere in her heart. I’m sure of it.

I don’t know if I’m going to work again this week. I’m hoping too, but for the last few weeks, it’s been okay with me not going. If it’s not meant to be, it’s not meant to be. Now I’m watching The Golden Girls and listening to music. I hope everybody has had a good weekend. Enjoy your week as well!!

All I Have To Give

It’s been another sleepy day, I got up at 1pm this time around and I’ve been trying to keep myself awake, especially since the sun was hardly out and I thought I heard thunder an hour ago, but it could have been a motorcycle start-up. So I could be wrong, since I only heard it once. I’ve been listening to music all day. It hasn’t been a singing day though. My self-confidence hasn’t been around very much today. So whenever music wasn’t helping me stay awake, I turned to movies. I had only been watching about half of the movies. I watched a little bit of Happy Feet Two, Beetlejuice, and The Dark Knight Rises. I actually just got done watching Ice Age: Continental Drift and I remember having my mom or dad rent it for me when it first came out on DVD, because I got Men In Black: III with it. It was the only movie I was in the mood for, so when I saw it was on, I DVR’d and decided to watch it. I’ve got to say, I didn’t like Nicki Minaj in it. She irritated me. Other than that, it was pretty good!

It’s been pretty boring. I haven’t been in a mood to do anything. My book is kind of calling my name at the moment though, so I may get lucky and read some of my book before my mom decides to go to bed. Oh, tomorrow is Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita Awareness Day. I have this disease. I’ve been thinking of doing a special post tomorrow to explain more about what it is. So if you can wear blue to show your support.

Day Is Over

I haven’t been awake very long. I got up at 2pm, but in my defense I had been up a few times before that, but I never could stay awake long enough to roll over and keep my eyes open. I had been awake earlier this morning whenever everybody else was snoozing. Somehow I went back to sleep and then, well you know the rest. I’ve been very bored today, and I actually thought I was going to be able to get on here and do a post, because we haven’t had internet all afternoon. When I was up early this morning, it was working fine and then when I got up and tried to go online. My Spotify said it was offline and the little box at the bottom on my connection box. I pretty much checked it every hour and hoped it would be on, but nope. I actually had to listen to my iPod, read my book (but I got to the interesting part), and watched Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Thank God I didn’t have a craving for a certain band or song that I didn’t have on my iPod. Surprisingly that didn’t happen.

When our internet came back on, my mom and I were at our neighbors and playing with the kittens. I was more occupied being outside then doing little stuff inside. Okay, I think I am going to do my prayers and check what the prompt is for Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday. I don’t think I am going to be getting any sleep tonight, so I’ll be doing the prompt and listening to Skillet and Butcher Babies. Good night everybody! I hope you enjoyed your Friday! And enjoy the rest of your weekend as well!

Five Sentence Fiction: View

If you click on the picture, it will automatically take you to the Lillie McFerrin Writes site. So you can post your five sentences there.

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: VIEW

From the top of the mountains the color of the sky changed from a beautiful baby blue to a dark horizon coming right towards us.

The wind had carried the fire from the top of the mountains to the trees at the bottom to where my family and I lived.

We didn’t have enough time to pack up everything and evacuate the area, as my wife rushed my family to pack, I watched the flames come closer and felt the heat in the air and watched it change the brown bark to ash.

The flames had killed the innocent trees and made all the animals scatter to save their own lives.

Such a sight to see something so strong burn the life of humanity so fast.; even when your own is at stake, but you still can’t help but notice how it can take something you know and love away.

To The Wicked Sky

Well, it is about to turn 10pm, and if you are watching your tv shows tonight, Hont In Cleveland starts soon!!! Anyways, I am kind of happy to be ok and I’m happy that my family is ok too. We’ve had two storms this evening. The first one, I don’t think anybody took it seriously enough, especially when our sirens went off probably two minutes after the rain and thunder stopped. I think twenty minutes my mom grabbed the shower chair and put it in the bathroom. I sat on that for a bit, before my parents thought it was actually over, and my mom put me back in my room. Around 8pm, while my parents and sister were watching their movie, the thunder and lightning came back. I switched on my TV to one of our local channels to see how long this part was staying. A minute later, the sirens went off again and my parents stopped their movie and I was put back in the bathroom, this time on the actual tub. Just in case. This was going to be worse, since the radar was saying it was coming right towards us.

My dad got most of the stuff we’d ever need if a tornado ever came. Blondie was charging up her phone, mom had me supper and came into the bathroom and fed me and our cat Oliver, my dad was standing by the front door watching the sky and wind as it didn’t know which side it wanted to go. Then everybody kept saying with sarcasm, “that’s rotation.” All that did was make me uncomfortable. I should have never said this phrase while my mom was feeding me food, but as a joke, I said that I was surprised that the power didn’t go out. I was meaning for the first round, and about two minutes later, our power starting flickering and it completely shots off. I will take the blame and say I jinxed us, but I swear I didn’t it was going to do that and then when it started flickering I couldn’t help but start laughing because my sister and my mom were having a cow. They had the internet on their phones and I had the last of my sarcasm.

The second storm probably lasted only for an hour. ChiChi slept through most of it. Oliver sat in front of the screen door. My mom didn’t put the kittens in the cage before the storms came so we got to hear both of them complain about that. I think dad and I were the only calm, cool, collected ones of the bunch. As much as I hate storms, I hate not having power. Our power just came back not that long ago. I actually didn’t think I was going to be able to do a blog post today/tonight. Now I’m listening to my iPod and my parents finish up their scary movie. I’m going to get ready for bed, do my prayers and watch some TV. I hope the power comes back on the others soon. Also hope the damage isn’t as bad as what we’ve heard. Last but not least, hope everybody is safe. So please pray or send positive vibes for people living around me for these three things. Good night! I’ll talk about how my day was tomorrow.

How Am I Still Awake? Is It Too Early To Be Asking That Question?

Well, I’ve had, what feels like a long day, but it was pretty good though. Last night I couldn’t go to sleep for anything. I think I went to bed at like 2am and I was actually so bored that not only was I on Pinterest for an hour, but I decided to watch the episode of Push Girls that I taped because I watched Mistresses instead. I was going to change that up, switch my DVR to tape Mistresses and watch Push Girls at 10pm, since it is a half hour. But I do have my DVR set up and everything, so who knows if I will actually remember to do that next Monday. Probably not. Anyways, my mom got movies for us to watch. I just got done watching The Guilt Trip and it was pretty good! I was surprised that I didn’t cry like I thought I would. And Barbra Streinsand is still a beautiful woman! Such classic beauty! I think I’m going to wait until tomorrow to watch Identity Theift.

I’ve done some more writing on my story today. I already have a chapter three, I’m still editing it, but it’s almost done. I also have an idea for chapter four too. Chapter three and four are the “explaining” chapters, what roles Odessa and her sister witches: Celeste and Tara (name might be changed soon!) face in the coming chapters. Right now, I’m explaining what role Odessa’s past plays in the whole story. Which is tricky, I’ve got to say! But it is fun because I didn’t think I would actually get one single idea today, and I’ve gotten like four of them so far! I might be staying up late just to work on these two chapters.

If anybody has heard, the band Skillet’s new album, “Rise” was released today! I got to listen to it via Billboard website’s stream of it yesterday. It’s pretty awesome! I have thought about doing a music review but sided against it. Spotify has the Deluxe edition on there. All three bonus tracks are very good! I think my favorites are, of course “Rise,” “Not Gonna Die,” and then the new tracks that we haven’t heard, “Cirius For A Psycho,” “Madness In Me,” “Salvation,” and “What I Believe.” Also, if you haven’t heard, Backstreet Boys’ new single “In A World Like This” was released as well! Honestly, I don’t like it very much. I am definitely into rock/metal too much nowadays. I haven’t decided if that’s a good or bad thing yet.  

Trifecta Writing Challenge: Rusty

Rules For Trifecta Writing Challenge:

Write a piece for the word, using the third definition. The piece must be no less than 33 words and no more than 333 words. You have to use the word given to you.

 

The walls were painted white.

The carpet was a beige.

The furniture was a mix of green, white, and blue/

The living room lacked any creative outlook.

As the years went by, most of everything new became old.

The carpet now had stains around where the coffee table was.

That commercial about how if “you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing,” left out the walls turning into a ugly shade of yellow after so many years.

The furniture had been switched three times.

It never mattered how much you took care of it, because there was still a chance something will be spilled, or a dog will poop, or worse a cat will cough up a hair ball on them.

It didn’t matter what you did to get rid of the ugly colors around your house they were still there.

Everything would change, except for the pictures hanging on the walls.

Tape was good, but tape could only hold for so long.

A rusty nail was the best choice to use to hang a picture on the stained wall.

It was the same color as the frames, so it was the best choice to use.

It had been getting older just by sitting in a box.

When it’s being used it shines, because you know it will hold on.

It’ll last longer than anything else you ever had in that house.
