Just like my title says …roaming.. I just feel like I’m running in place. I do not have much Christmas shopping for my kids to do ..I ordered online for something’s and then its gift cards and money towards things they need help with. What can you do when their adults. Oh the days of toy shopping was so much easier and more fun! As I write this I’m seeing a toy commercial come on the tv. (hahaha) then having older nieces and nephews it’s a money gift card for them as well . So as I look at everyone on line or talking with people their all wound up about buying things . I just want to have my family all together … my son will be coming home for twelve days and when he just starts to relax it will be time to fly back out is what I’m thinking so the whole present thing is probably not his main focus , my daughter feels like she hasn’t done enough and I told her I’m sure it’s fine . All long as I feel like I’m just roaming walking in place feeling like I should be doing more. .. but honestly it’s no different from any other yr since they have become older . Their fine. So that being said I will just get this house ready with the help of my daughter with food in the house since it’s been just feeding my hubby and I . My daughter doesn’t eat too much at home and when she does she buys what she wants. So stock up on food that my son likes but then again I don’t know if he is eating the same way he did before he left for Basic .. he may want junk food (and eating out. hahaha) And ….,that being said it’s waiting for my son to come home .
I have books to read, spend a bit more on here with my blog and now my new thing my friend and I started that I posted about a week or so ago . Now that my Son is about done with Basic there isn’t any more letter writing with him so we have decided to write back and fourth and I am feeling guilty because she has already wrote me and I am dragging my butt . I have started a letter just need time to do it and to focus . And sadly I have the time I honestly can’t say why my day goes by so fast .. It’s just so relaxed I get up catch up on news with my coffee then clean up around the house and then run into town , post office garage, etc then come back home and get supper started . And then get off my feet for a bit enjoying my soap then finish supper and then hubby cleans up and then he , we settle in to watch our tv shows and try to do my thing .. books ..writing, but then my day is gone night time settles in.. and that’s why I feel this running in place feeling . Ughh maybe I’m thinking too much … I just don’t know . 🙄 like now its 6:00 in the evening been dark since 5 supper is done and cleaned up . And now my hubby is relaxing on the couch and I’m cozied in my chair with a blanket it’s so cold … they say the coldest night it will be so far . It’s strange with it being a clear starry cold evening we keep hearing the whistle of the trains going by , while we are watching the news.. yes time to time we hear them at night while we are laying in bed and it’s quiet but the last two night the whistle and the sound of the train on the tracks is crystal clear. It’s even mor creepier … well I guess I should finish my letter to my friend and then read one of my books . I’d say my hubby and I could watch a movie but he’s going to settle in early yeah it’s Friday but Saturday is the last day of hunting so my hubby and his friend are hunting for the day . Plus it’s a good night for settling earlier to keep warm( hahaha)
Monday’s what can we say about Monday’s … their not the most favorable day 🙄 but this one I must admit wasn’t too bad , after a rainy dreary Sunday and no sleep the night before , it was nice to wake up to a bright sunny morning after a good nights sleep. and a very good hair day (hahaha) now to tell you what I did today well I don’t know it was a day of just whatever I enjoyed my cup of coffee a bit longer this morning . Chatted with a friend on Facebook . Then proceeded with getting supper going in the faithful crockpot . Then just chatted on and off with my daughter who had off today but spent the most part of her day down in her place as she cleaned it and hung out with her boyfriend who was over. I left went to the Post Office and there sat two letters from my son in our post box. It was nice to hear from him he is sounding much more mature . And excited about coming home for Christmas but actually now is switching gears … again … now instead of missing home he’s going on now how he thinks he’s going to miss the base it feels like home to him now the funny thing is I’m wondering because he is coming home for 12 days for Christmas and I’m thinking when he comes home to his bed , us , his old friends we could be dragging him to the airport to go back to AIT there. But I do understand and he’s made such great friends and even though they exchanged phone numbers and so on it won’t be the same as they move on to graduation and their AIT heading in different directions. One guy he is happy about because they realize they only live several town overs so hopefully they can catch up with one another. He’s come a long ways from feeling sappy to now going to miss being their .. oh home is going to be so boring for him. I’m thinking he may reach out even more to an Army career but will see he’s young and good at changing his mind a lot … it can make your head spin. Whatever he chooses I just hope it’s not settling for less in this town .. it’s a nice little town to raise a family and retire in but not for a active adventurous young guy . It can be a bad thing. So yes defiantly will see. I do know I love my kids will do anything for them but want them to be independent happy adults like we all hope and wish for. And I’m actually getting use to just doing whatever ..my lazy routine if you want me to admit it. (Hahaha) yes I know I’m limited as it is physically and so I know my limits … I just know I’m into a routine of keeping myself busy in simple ways . Taking to more friends doing more hobbies It will be nice to have a bit more activity in this quiet house . But Im just afraid he will come home and after awhile settle back into his old ways of doing his running and I wondering where he is .. I know what people have told me he’s part of the Army now so National Guard reserves or full time they own him and that has and will keep him knowing to be on the straight and narrow not that he never was he just loves late nights and keeping me wondering. Oh how things change and it’s so hard to adjust then you do and then things change again and you have to adjust again to that change .. this thing called life 🙂
Woke to this , this morning.. outside my window . More then they predicted but it’s doable . The first snow of the season is beautiful .. after that I’ve had enough of it (hahaha) enjoy my photos .. need to grab one more cup of coffee to be able to get this day going.
It’s a Wednesday day morning already and a bright sunny one at that. After a weekend of no phone call from our son ..on Monday night around 8:00 my hubby and I decided to settle in our bedroom, watch our shows so shutting down the the lights locking up . My hubby headed to the bedroom to turn on the tv while I put some dishes that were lingering around after supper in the dishwasher ..the phone rang as I looked at the ID it showed a out of State number thinking oh a tell-a call … we get so many I was about to just let it ring but something in me told me to answer it and so with that I did my straight forward hello ready to tell whoever it was I was not interested .. when on the other line I heard a familiar voice “hi mom ” and I just melted (hahaha) I said Seth is that you he said yes and started to choke up with emotion my hubby heard me say his name and came running out . Etc etc after that it’s personal but with that said we got our first call I am so happy my gut feeling said answer . He is doing really good but misses us and home. Sadly the base he is at it’s an every two week phone call home , just so happy tho that we got the chance to talk to him. Now as I stated it’s Wed and it will be a day of things around the house except for one errand out to the post office .Then home to watch the tv shows I recorded , after staying up till 1. reading my book knowing I should of put it down earlier and got some sleep I couldn’t .. it is so good and I want to know the ending. So that took up my evening as we watched the election polls which I will not get into, I do not talk politics on line or with others . Sorry , Enjoying my late morning coffee and breakfast and Miss Abigail getting into everything like a little kid. Its a slow start to the day but that’s okay nothing to demanding to attend to but it’s time to get this day going any how. Hope everyone has a good day.
Once again another Saturday dark and raining the only good thing temps the last two days have been close to 60. According to the forecast winds are suppose to pickup this afternoon bringing a cold front in and hopefully not bringing down wires cannot loose power this weekend we .. I. Need that phone working . If my son can call home I need to talk to him. On Friday it down poured all day but my daughter and I decided to say whatever and ventured out in it . We drove 40 minutes to treat ourselves to a Starbucks holiday coffee. It’s not an often thing to go there just when we want to say whatever to what the world is throwing at us and need a pick me up treat. Then it was home and listening to more rain beating on the house. … anyway the winds are picking up already and my hubby and I are showered ,enjoying our coffee then soon will be heading out for food shopping. Then settling in after and then we will see what this weather brings. I have several books that really need to be read before the library doesn’t let me renew them any longer. So I will try to focus on them unless something on tv catches my attention. Well I guess it’s time to finish getting ready and get things done .
Woke to a cloudy cold morning . Dragged myself out of bed poured a hot steamy cup of coffee. As I sat and enjoyed it . The quietness around me was actually okay. I just took it in and thought it is what it is . ..actually with a smile..as I just sipped my coffee . My daughter came up from her place moments later with Miss Abigail at her heels . I listen to my daughter talk about this and that and smiled somethings never change . She always has an opinion about something 🙂 after we both went about our business I cleaning the little bit around the house if you want to call it that more like went room to room and just opened up window shades, made the bed . And then was done. 4:00 in the afternoon now and after a very heavy rain the sun is out and shining bright . Warming the temps to the mid 50’s crazy weather. Soon my husband will be home and I know he will want to go for a run So supper can wait to be made for a bit . My daughter will eat with her boyfriend . Another easy night .. not complaining by any means just following along with it. It’s just seems all so simple these days . I know in a couple of months my son will be home and maybe it will be less quiet will see what an adult he may have become. Then the quietness will start again when he leaves for his training . I’m just proud of my kids for being who they are and being kind ,caring people. It’s a funny thing you blink and before you know it they have grownup . So don’t blink😉
