Random jottings and writings. Little bit of this and that. Responses to Blogging, Writing, and Photo Challenges.
Author: Tena Carr
Why Jottings & Writings?? Because my (main) blog is a mixture of thoughts/opinions (jottings) and my attempts at (very) short story challenges (writings).
Interests? - Pretty much anything to do with Fire/EMS/Police, Writing, and Social Media
Firefighters, Police officers, Paramedics, Soldiers.... Those are the True Heroes.
Running into the thickest part of the forest, Beth felt at one with all the trees there. She had spent many hours of her childhood playing in this very forest and new it like the back of her hand. The trees welcomed her offering her safety. At least for the time being.
Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….Don’t really have a whole lot to look forward to, certainly nothing for myself personally … I am looking forward to my son receiving his Life Rank at the next Court of Honor (in the Spring), as well as his next belt advancement. He just tested for his orange belt so it’ll be a little while before his next belt test – not to mention the tests get harder and more is expecte the higher up the ranks you go.
What is your favorite comfort snack food?
There are so many snack foods I like and I’m afraid that narrowing it down to “comfort” snack foods doesn’t help all that much…. Ice cream, pop-corn, chocolate, chips (fritos w/ cream cheese is best but just about any kind will do). I couldn’t even say, for sure, which one would top the list for me – but a good bet would be ice cream.
What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)? My very first “real” job was with a lady that I actually worked for for several years – well into adulthood, including after the birth of my son… Infact, I worked for her till me and my husband moved from Oregon to Texas in 2007. Outside of a job that involved a family friend, I believe my first real job was either as as a Server at a place called Edgewood Downs or as a Day Care Aide (I’ve forgotten the name of the Day Care that would have been at). Mind you it’s been many years since those “first” jobs.
You wouldn’t think so to look at me now but there was a time when I use to be a lot more agile than I am. I could do round-offs (though I never could get the hang of doing a true cartwheel), back bends, summesaults, and something we use to call a cherry-drop (I guess they still do) – I was able to find a fairly recent youtube video:
I have found myself wanting to do a round-off, at least in my mind… Probably a good thing that I never actually follow through on that – the results would be painful at best and probably leave me with some pretty drastic injuries at the worst.
I may not be as agile as I was way back when, but I have maintained at least some of my agility – a fair amount, all things considered.
Really, writing a coffee-share post shouldn’t be this hard. I don’t even know what to say or where to start. Not a whole lot exciting has been going on with me, personally. Just a lot of the same ole ole.
Ever watch CSI Miami? I’ve been on a watching-spree for theshow for, I don’t know, a couple weeks now I guess. I’m on season 5, episode 2 so far.
One thing that’s been same ole same ole, not to mention annoying is the non-stop coughing due to cough-variant asthma and (I’m guessing) sinus drainage.
Earlier this week we went to a special meeting at my son’s troop for Life Scouts and about to be Life Scouts. The meeting was to talk about getting ready to take the path from Life to Eagle. If all goes right, my son should be getting hisLife at the next Court of Honor in the Spring.
That’s about all I’ve got for this week. See y’all next week (hopefully).
