Stream of Consciousness Saturday:

 LindaGHill said  “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “expect/unexpected.”  Use either or both words in your post, or simply base your idea on them. Have fun!”

Sorry  this  is  so late!

Here is the pingback.

I did  not  expect  to  return  to  angst, I  did  not  expect  the  unexpected  to  rear up  and  bite  me  in  the  bum!

Stress  between  middle  son  and husband  exploded! That  was to  be  expected  he ( middle  son  )  has been pushing our  patience  for years  now. I  am  forgiving  of  his  shortcomings and  faults, I  am his  mother  what  more  would  you   expect? His  father  though  had  had  enough! That  also  not  unexpected.

Anyway  it  all  blew  almost  as  we  walked  through  the  door after  having  been  travelling, mostly  for the  last three days.


The  proverbial hit  the  fan, tempers  frayed  and  broke ,

Words  best left  unsaid  were spoke .

Belongings  removed in silence, looks  so  black  cast my way.

Husband tells  me it’s  all my  fault, well it  would  be , hey?

I never  disciplined  them  enough .

Well I did  my  best… not  good  enough…. tough!!


All  my fault  well that’s  to  be  expected….it’s  not  unexpected to get  the blame!


Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. Linda will post the prompt  on her blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance,  Linda  will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that Linda  and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on Linda’s post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

    I can’t imagine how hard it must be to be a parent, to ride the line between “too tough” and “too relaxed” ! I am sure you are a fantastic mother ❤ <–hug

    We all know kids don’t come with instruction manuals. Why? Because they’re all different and there’s nothing we can do about that! So we do our best. *hugs to you*
