December Ditties – 2018 #SoCS – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

“Ma”…Ma…Ma…Mama…mama…mommy…mommy…Janet!”  “What???!!!”

It has happened…Occasionally our kids think I am not paying enough attention to them. 

Sorry, that was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the Stream of Consciousness prompt from Linda today was “Ma.”  I know we can use it whatever way we want but for me, that’s it. 

MAybe I’m not the only one but when I am in a store and I hear someone calling for “MA” or “Mom” I turn around and look, even when I know my kids are not with me at the time.  Our youngest, who is the one who usually does the “Ma” thing as a joke (or not a joke) took me out to breakfast this morning so it’s all good.

December Ditties is the name for my ramblings this month.  There are a couple of challenges I’d like to try participating in but I’m not sure if I’ll have the time.  I’m supposed to start a new transcription project that is going to take me out of my house (!!) for 4 to 5 hours a day.  It was supposed to start in October but has been delayed.  The most recent update was that it was to begin on December 3 but we haven’t gotten confirMAtion yet.  It is a big project and when/if it starts it is going to take about 3 months to complete.  That’s a lot of time out of the house for me!  I’ll actually have to get dressed and comb my hair ๐Ÿ™‚   

One of the challenges I have done before, the December Reflection with Susannah Conway.  The object is to take a picture using a prompt.  Here they are if you want to play along:

The first one is Morning Light and I’ve already done that one a couple of times so I’m going to skip it.

Another fun thing I saw in a post share from Eugenia at Brew and Spew was the Holiday Blog(MAs) party.  I think that sharing holiday memories and traditions is interesting so I’m going to give it a shot.  As I understand it, you are to blog about ChristMAs/the Holidays and what they mean to you.  Thanks to KaylaAnn for organizing.     

ChristMAs is a time of sharing and giving and I’m all about that.  It’s a time of love and being with family.  My earliest ChristMAs memories are of the ChristMAs eve parties we had when I was growing up.  All of our extended family came to our house to share a meal, open presents and we would stay up to go to midnight MAss. 

I am the one at the bottom right in this picture.  I was the youngest for a long time until my little sister came along when I was 5. 

That’s enough rambling for now.  Hope that you will come along with the December Ditties.  I know it is a busy time for everyone this year.  Ma…Ma…MAMA…MAMA…Mommy…JANET

    I think we ALL turn around when we hear โ€œmomโ€, even when we know itโ€™s not ours. Maternal instinct?

    Hah! When I want to get my husband’s attention, I call him by his last name as loud as I can. He usually laughs and asks “What?” with my maiden name, but it’s never failed to work. One time I was shopping with my MIL in the Hobby Lobby and I couldn’t see her and I shouted real loud, “Mom?!” and about five women came round the corner, so that’s not a place to call for mom. LOL
    I hope your new project is challenging and interesting to you. It will probably be an adjustment to your routine, but it’s nice to take on new stuff, isn’t it?
    I do photo a day on Instagram. I played every day in November. I can’t usually manage it every day, so I think it was a special month!
    I did a Christmas post thing with some other bloggers a few years back. I didn’t do them all either, but I loved reading about other people’s traditions and memories ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL I can just see all the women coming. Did your MIL come too? Yes, I am really curious about this new project because the reason I have to go into their office to transcribe it is because of the confidential nature. I’m usually dealing with medical things and this is medical too but I wonder why the extreme hush-hush? I’ll have to look for you on instagram if I haven’t followed you yet!

        She did come. There was a lot of laughing. I was apologizing and there was one lady who said she didn’t have her daughter with her, but if someone’s daughter needed help, she’d step in ๐Ÿ™‚

        I wonder too. I suppose you may not be able to share. I wonder if it’s a malpractice or wrongful death, which tells you about my work ๐Ÿ˜‰
