Half way through this week already . And a very humid Wednesday. Enjoyed my coffee and some small talk with my son this morning. As the humidity kept rolling in . Thankfully the new air conditioner is in and works great ! So great my son asked if we could turn it off as he pulled on a sweatshirt. Let’s see after going for a run and a swim early morning he sat with his damp suit on trying to finish some last minute college info. I just sat there shaking my head at him. Okay I will admit I did lower the function on it Since I was cold 😂I actually went outside to warm up. Let’s see that lasted about 3 mins …. I think the deck was reaching temps in the 90’s with the humidity . As my son got ready for work I busied myself with things around the house . Not much needed to be done the house was pretty kept up .I settled and watched my soaps and then made supper for my hubby and I . What do you do when the evenings unbearable outside. You read and drink water of course chat with the hubby’s🙂my daughter is out from work but with her boyfriend and my son is still at work. So it’s Just hubby and I and Miss Abigail. Miss antsy girl tonight. Happy to say I’m about two maybe three small chapters away to finishing my book . Loved this book Fly Away by Kristin Hannah . It’s just really sad but isn’t all her books sad … but always have such a beautiful meaning and great story to keep you eagerly turning the pages.Love the first book in the series. Fire Fly lane . Defiantly worth the read. Well that said I am going to try finishing it and then I can start on my next read. I’ll post it when I start it. Have a great night. …oh Thunderstorm warning going across the bottom of our TV screen! I hope we get a thunderstorm ! love them at night . I do love them better when both kids are home ,my daughter should be fine she is at her boyfriends house . I hope my son gets home before they come our way. He’s delivering food until 9 and storms are predicted for 10. He can always stay out at work if he needs to . Yes I’m a mother …. constantly thinking ..worrying of my kids, even as adults🙄 I should just calm my hubby down who is pacing around the house and outdoors like a dog ( hahaha) he always does this when they are being predicted. He doesn’t like them one bit. Ok have a good night everyone….
It was a rainy muddy dreary Sunday.. the mud mixed in with the snow has now made it ugly looking out and makes for wanting Spring to come quicker. I know in due time… today went by slowly , I made a chicken soup for my daughter and I because we needed to eat , while my hubby just sipped broth and ate jello . He can’t wait to get the colonoscopy done tomorrow. So I ll be going to bed soon since I need to bring him , my daughter is going to come to keep me company while we wait for him. ,after supper he settled on the couch watching racing and dozing .. we thought we would watch a movie but he didn’t think he would be able to focus on it so I let him sleep and I did some coloring and giving my mind a break from my wandering thoughts.
I’m now laying in bed and was I say WAS ready to settle in for some sleep but my son texted me with I’m so ready to come home , crazy things happening here. I’m like oh no I don’t know if I like the sound of that . There’s been a lot of fights there lately and he now just told me the barracks next to his is on fire . Ughh !!! He said there is so many fire trucks and you can see the flames coming through the doors .. he said luckily their barrack is far enough away . and he is safe He didn’t say much else and I didn’t ask just Incase he had already told me too much .. all he said Was goodnight to me and said his barracks are being told to settle so I guess they want them off their phones . Oh being a mother is hard no matter how old they are and yes he’s in the Army but that doesn’t mean I can’t worry a bit or won’t.,… how I wish he could just get on a plane and come home now! lol I actually told him that he had texted back , wish it was that easy🙄 well he said he was safe and getting some sleep or going to try and I guess I will do the same . Morning will be here soon enough.
So it’s a quiet night no friends just the Fam and we are all settled in the only sound I hear is the humming of the air conditioner and for the moment my husband snoring softly…hmm this may get a bit noiser . My son is still recovering from Saturday’s Spartan race thought he could try practice after school because he told us it felt better to keep moving then sitting is legs tighten up sitting . Well he came home and was walking like a mummy once again so I believe he over did it…. always never does anything half way , all or nothing. So he ate and showered and at 7:30 was in bed for the night. My daughter has just arrived home from work so just before her coming home we heard this noise yes always noises with us…but it was like a rumble or rolling something around kind of noise so my husband said oh I believe he’s up I am telling him no when our son goes to bed that’s exactly what he does. So my poor husband starts walking through the house , went down to my daughters downstairs back into check our son …nothing but still noise so he went outside comes in whips open the bedroom window says listen we waited and I heard it in the distance, it sounded like a grand finale of fireworks but where and why ? It’s a Tuesday night .. so strange my husband was just happy I heard it and he figured it out instead of thinking he was loosing his mind hahaha but anyways so strange why? … always something .
This week is my Sons Spring Vacation. It’s been a very different one. My Son goes to work then has an hr when he gets out of work to then get ready for track practice .then gets out of practice to galavant with his friends for a bit to feel like it’s a vacation. As for I it’s so layed back that it’s such an unfamiliar thing okay actually I shouldnt say that.. Im getting use to this change.He drives himself so I do my house duties then may take a ride and grab a coffee .I can my time and write. Change such a thing to get use to but not much of a choice you are given you just go with it.Tonight it’s chilly and raining so no star gazing My favorite Spring Summer past time so my hubby and I and Miss Abigail the kitty are settled in watching tv and I am adult coloring. All good. After s couple of days on the deck in the sun I need a break my face is a bit sunburned. Crazy weather Mother Nature is being moody I heard it is helping the tick population so start now and check your pet’s when they come inside and if you are hiking or in the woods working and your little ones are operating around in the high grass check them and yourself ‘ there predicting a bad season with them. Well in my area Alright everyone I’m going to enjoy my sons company for a bit now that he just arrived home before he goes out or goes to bed .
Every day is a new day …but I feel like I did yesterday.
I shed quiet tears for I am not ready to let you go. but I must , I keep moving forward
but it’s bittersweet. I find myself laughing then a memory nips me in the face like a cold windy day. I haven’t forgotten you don’t you know ….
your in my heart where you will be always.. . let me smile let me laugh for it’s too hard to carry this pain.
Hi to all my followers I’m still here . It’s been crazy busy since I last posted ..always at the end of the school year. My Son Seth is keeping me physically and mentally busy. Seth and his track team won their last meet of the year so that put them as one of the undefeated teams and now championships begin. What a beautiful moment to watch when their coaches and the boys do a victory run around the track together. but bittersweet at the same time knowing it’s set in some of their minds the last time they will all run together as a team . as the Seniors now venture on to their next journey in life for some it will be college others the service, or jobs what ever they have chosen as their path at this moment now that they have done their time in High School, for my son and the rest of his friends and team members next year will be a little more tougher I know getting back on that track with out their best friends their hearts will be heavy but like we all know this time always comes and is a marking stone to what the world has to offer and what we make of it. Now the rest of his team will move up and be come the good example for the younger kids as they have been taught when they started out.and show them as their best friends shown them how it’s done ,they will be the leaders now, as for myself I will be the whisper in my sons ear .guiding him and hoping to keep him on this right path we call life….. now if he listens that will be his choice. and sometimes that’s all we have is the hope they listen.
