Today’s Prompt: Lose

Perfect, because I’m ’bout to lose my mind.

Just Kidding. Really, I am getting my husband and kids ready for a competition.
Packing, list making, cleaning, anxiety-ing!

QuestionThings yelled across the house in the process:
“MOM, where did my mp3 player go?”
“MOM, have you seen my hat, the blue one?”
“MOM, where’d my socks go?”
“MOM, do we have anymore duffel bags?”
“MOM, how am I going to get cash?”
“MOM, can you help me find the songs you just put on my mp3 player?”
“MOM, have you gone up this wall yet?”

Ha, all those things were due to something lost.

Apparently, I’m a pretty good detective.


Everything lost has been found.

Except my mind… if the husband decides they need to leave early.

Yes, with him that is a “thing.” I don’t think it will be this time.

And an accidental experiment…

Being busy, I was off social media for most of the day. I had intended to take a break from it anyway, because I was getting angry.
So today, I cheered up even with the chaos, listening to music, I was dancing and singing along. Then I got on social media for a minute to catch up. Bad mood came flooding back. It is really over a particular issue that will be gone before too long. But two points proven, social media can be wonderful, but you do have to monitor how you use it, and how you let it affect you. Also, music is powerful!

Next time I’ll share a little “fun” post about music. It always makes me giggle.
