#SoCS May 16/2020 – Want

Linds’s #SoCS prompt today:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “want.” Make the word “want” the first, second, or third word of your post. Have fun!

What I want (there you go, third word!) is to know what is going on.

Actually, it is probably what everyone wants to know.

Into week eight of Lockdown, and though the government are trying to show that the end may be in sight, we, as a people, are left with a huge dose of doubt.

I’m sitting here, not really knowing what is going to happen, come this magic date of June 1st, when apparently the government thinks it will be safe to bring children back to certain classes in school.

So safe that we have to split the class.

Possibly split it again.

And not talk to the majority of my own babies who will be trying to come in.

No hugs.

No consolation hugs for the little 4 and 5 year olds who will probably be quite distressed to come back in to aa very different school scenario.

And quite possibly, not even with the teacher they are used to having.

Hell, yeah, I want to know what is going on.

Okay, enough of that virus talk, something else I want, is for my creativity to come back, properly, and my energy, and I want the phantom pains to disappear too!

Not asking for too much, am I?

    I can relate to you, Sis! Dont worry,i think your government is not more bad as ours. 😉 Here today i heared on the information channel of our Bavarian radio station, our government had knowledge about the virus and a pandemic in February. They got warnings, but were in procrastination mode. ;-( Michael

    We have a government which seems determined to keep us locked down completely for ever, even though there are very limited cases of this virus here. When it does get worse, are they going to go back into complete lockdown and finish of our economy entirely? It is quite mad, what’s going on.

    You’ve said it. Not knowing how or when things will return to normal is frustrating. Actually, there will be no quick return to what was normal then. But I hope eventually we will.

    It’s so hard for everyone these days Sis. There are no real rules no real guidance. None of us are safe. We have to avoid loved ones and strangers alike. I totally understand what you are saying it will be so hard to see the little one and practice social distancing let alone get them to too. I want things back to normal as well. The government need to think again. Sending you strength and love 💜💜💜💜

    It’s impossible not to hug those angels! I can’t imagine going back and not being able to offer them a potion of peace and love! But for their safety we have to 😭 I hope soon we will get to live the way we used to because now it’s really stressing how we can’t even do the simplest of things … praying and hoping for better days 🙈 Stay safe 🌹
