The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 26/2020

Shelley Krupa

It is time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week our prompt. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!

Today I am awake at stupid o’clock. I am depressed, tired and near to tears. It’s stupid really, I am being selfish. Yesterday was a total wash out I even annoyed hubby who has been great, even if not a little over protective. I think he’d like to put me in a container and keep me safe. I am shielding because I have been unwell since June,in hospital, out of hospital in again and now waiting for an operation. I feel guilty because there are people far worse off than me.

Last night I had really bad dreams which I just can’t shake off today, I need another container to put those in so I can throw them away and they would stop getting to me.

Covid19, yes we definitely need another container for that. Darn thing busy mutating, coming back for another bite at us all. It doesn’t look like things are going to improve anytime soon. Yup I am a miserable cow today better put me in a container too!

The misery in this container was brought to you by way of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. I am off now before you all fall asleep from boredom or clear off for fear of catching the blues.

    We all have out pity party days. I hope you get your operation soon and are on the road to recovery. Oh, if we could only put the bad days in containers and lock them away.

    You are always in my prayers, Willow. Shake off the bad dreams and give yourself a wee break. 💜 It is rough out here in this crazy world.

    Maybe others are better off but what you’re going through isn’t easy. Waiting for an operation is stressful. Feel your feelings. You’re entitled to every one of them. 💕

    It was my turn yesterday. Thinking of you and sending virtual containers along with virtual manual sorters so that you can have a good clear out. You’re allowed Willow. You’ve had more than your fair share to contend with. ❤

    I feel like this a lot of the time lately.  But you are going to be better after this op is over and you’re back at home.👍🦋

    Empathizing with you, Willow — on all counts. I’m running out of containers too. Hope you have a better day — and a better week coming up. ♥️♥️♥️
