Vice is the Prompt for Today



The immoral people at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose to air their faults by selecting the word “Vice” for today’s prompt.

Personally Have Many Vices

My Love of Pure Dark Chocolate

Is my biggest act of immorality.  Prefer strictly pure dark chocolate without added impurities like marshmallows or other gross additives.  A dash of peppermint would not be unpleasant occasionally, but just pure dark milk chocolate each day is enough for me!

One Can Mountain Lightning

Drink one single can of a it each day.  It is a less expensive knock off of the name brand Mountain Dew, but personally I prefer the no-name to the actual name brand.  Think that Mountain Lightning may actually have more caffeine!

Face it, everyone has some sort of indulgence.  Some people smoke or gamble.  For others the demon may be an addiction to fishing or hunting game.  We are all mere humans!  Even our stupid cat is addicted to something!  His favorite pastime tends to be biting me.  You have to keep him away from catnip as well.  He zones out if you give it to him!

Please Help Fight Vile Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.

Chronic Disease and Disability

Does the one lead to the other?  Not necessarily.  For the record, I have a chronic disease called Multiple Sclerosis.  Which has led me to be permanently wheelchair bound.  People with the disease I am cursed with, may or may not end up in a wheelchair.  I know some who are still able to move around walking freely who have the same illness!

Youth is the Prompt for Today

The elderly people at the Daily Post division of Word Press would like us to create works of art to symbolize what the word “Youth” means to you.

Learning by Making Mistakes

Made tons of errors in my younger days.  Still make mistakes even today, but I never make the ones twice!  Guess that is what they mean by the wisdom of the older generations.  Yeah, they made mistakes but hopefully learned from their follies!

What really tends to be annoying is all the fun I had making those mistakes back in my younger days.  Remember working all lot on the farm, but in my few hours off had a blast with my friends from town!  Would drag them with me to help out in chores occasionally, but they rarely could hold up against my work load for long.  Didn’t get my actual driver’s licence until I was over 16 years old, but drove on public roads after the age of 14.  Drove on farm property starting at the wise old age of 12 (was so short had to use blocks on the brake and gas pedals)!

There was the One Single Time

At the end of my Junior year of High school, when I drank a part of a can of beer at a senior’s graduation party.  Tasted nasty!  But unfortunately did not keep me from getting hooked on drinking harder liquors when I entered college.

Carry is the Prompt for Today

The weaklings at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to think of creating works of art representing the word “Carry“/

Music First

Carry On My Wayward Son by the music group Kansas.

Try to Lug Your Canoe Across Land

That is how the Native American Indians used to carry their possessions from place to place.  Tribes relocated following food sources back in the old days.  My Great Grandmother passed away long before I was born.  She may have had to deal with these life experiences in her time.  Unfortunately, I truly doubt she did because she was confined on a federal reservation for her “kind”.  Talk about discrimination!

Never got to Engage in a Conversation with Her

Wish I had been able to meet her!  Grandpa says I think just like she did.  We could have carried on for hours about the disrespect young people show their elders today!  Do you have any ancestors you wish you could have met?[polldaddy poll=9498586]

Live my life carrying guilt about the problems I have caused my family due to my crappy health problems.  On the positive side, at least I no longer have to transport heavy bales of hay!

Confused Is Prompt For Day

The perplexed people at the Daily Post group of Word Press actually managed to make a clear choice for the prompt of the day of the word “Confused” for our art works to be based on.

Am Always Bewildered Lately

Have absolutely no idea how I get myself into these muddled messes.  Went with bright and clear shining eyes into asking the man I ended up marrying to marry me.  He turned around and dashed my dreams of happiness with him against the cave walls in the nearest park.  Flat out told me NO!  He wasn’t ready, yet.

We had already picked out our wedding rings.  Talk about confusion.  Either he liked me or not, he was the man I wanted to live the rest of my life with!  I was attending college at the time, we had been sharing an apartment together for months to try to reduce costs.  Was sharing a bed with a guy who had told me he was not interested in marrying me.  A few days more ticked by, with me studying for a physics exam.  The actual day of the test, he handed me my engagement ring asking me to marry him!  Needless to say I failed the examination.  Ended up having to retake the class in the next semester.

We have been married for well over 20 years now.  Have lived in different states of the United States of America.  Have had our phenomenal periods and our devastating atrocious nightmares.  Who doesn’t go through this type of life?

Complicated is the Prompt for the Day

The apparent members of the Brain Trust located at the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to create works of art based on the concept of “Complicated” for today.

Life Is Complicated Today

Just take a look at the current political situation with the United States of America’s up coming elections.  The one running in the Democratic Party is a bold faced liar, that I wouldn’t trust a single clipped penny!  The gentleman running in the Republican Group talks off the cuff, ignoring what his speech writers have prepared for him to say.  I like the fact he speaks how he feels, but offending foreign countries may not be the smart way to proceed.

Am extremely glad we have no children by choice.  Would not want them to be exposed to the school systems that are in operation for our country’s future generations!  How much longer will the American version of the English language be what is spoken here?

Who knows where the the future will lead us?  Maybe years down the road, human life will be wiped from the Earth by our own stupidity!  Too many bombs and wars wiping the planet free of all living creatures.  Could happen if we don’t change our ways.

Reach is the Prompt for the Day

The people who must be blessed with height chose the word “Reach” for today’s prompt for us to create various works of art based on.

Everything is Out of My Physical Reach

Comes from being born short.  Managed to obtain my dream of being a successful network engineer, but had to give that position up due to not being able to chase wiring anymore, because a disease confined me to a wheelchair.

Miss telling data both where to go and how to get there!  Do Not Piss Off the engineer in charge of your network, or your traffic might be routed the slowest way possible.  Yeah the traffic will still arrive, just a few seconds later!  If they are really ticked off, it might end up in the “bit bucket” other wise known as file 13 or trash.

Dreamed of being an astronaut while I was little

Didn’t find out there was a height requirement until I left for college.  There was absolutely no way I could ever reach that goal.  Needed to be several inches taller.  So that was completely out of my reach!  Changed my major to computer science and learned all about programming (which is really boring) and working with network traffic.  Preferred that side of the science!

Obsessed is the Prompt of the Day

The singly driven people of the Daily Post would like our art to be based on the word “Obsessed” for today.

What has Me Obsessed?

Memories of the mountains in Colorado, where we used to live.  That and the two cats we had adopted from a humane society while in the Chicago-metro area.  Took both animals along with us for our adventures in CO.  Miss those two so much it hurts!  Their spirits have followed us through many different states of this country.

My husband says he still sees both of the animals.  I only see the one I picked out to be adopted.  That one comes around whenever I am feeling sick or really sad.  Wish I could convince him to beat up the cat we adopted after he passed away, since it likes to bite and claw me!

If you have any advice on how to keep an animal from using me as his personal stress relief, all you should do is send an email to jeanette@saintpblogging.com All responses will be read by me personally.  Thank you for your input!

“Maybe” is the Prompt for the Day

The indecisive humans at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose the word “Maybe” to be the prompt for the day.

Do You Mean Yes or No?

You either agree or disagree.  Make a stand for once by sticking to your decision.  The world will respect you more for being able to make your mind up!

Growing up I always knew right where my goals where.  That made it a lot easier to make a decision!  Now that I seem to be literally losing my mind due to health issues, I have trouble making good decisions in life.

Fortunately, I married a wonderful man years ago that has stuck with me through both the good times and the bad times.  Yeah we argue a lot, but who doesn’t enjoy a good argument?  There was no debate team in the school where I grew up, or I would have been their star competitor!  I’d argue with a fence post, if it actually had the ability to speak.  Get that tendency from my Grandfather.  So you could say I inherited it naturally.

Prompt for the Day: “Joke”

The comic people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Joke” for our daily prompt.

All Antics Aside

Actually got my first major networking job, by being able to tell a joke!  Was nervous as all get out being surrounded by a group of older males, but since I was to be the first female on the team I needed to break the ice that had seemed to form in the conference room.  So I told them a dirty joke completely straight faced.  Learned to play poker while involved in a musical in junior high school, so put my poker face to use!  The joke is mild by today’s standards, it was back in 1997 after all.

My joke did not involve any thing off limits even today!  Spoke of two whales swimming in the ocean who were harassing fishing boats.  One made the comment that it agreed to blow the boats over, but never agreed to swallow the fishermen.

Loved working with that great company both in the Chicago metro area and then in the Denver area.  Unfortunately the company was bought out by the huge company Sprint during my first year with the company.  Sprint basically ended up killing off our culture of working in teams.  Sprint-Paranet went under back around 2002.  Fortunately, I resigned before they went under!
