Beautiful ending to an exciting Friday Track Meet . Brutally cold but with a blanket wrapped around me worked well🙂 our boys Track and Field team won their 2nd meet of the season again . My son broke his record . Came in faster so his hard work is paying off. My hubby niece , Mother in/law and my daughter cheered him on. Happily he is out with his friends now and my daughter as well so hubby and I are home and warming up and watching a movie Suicide Squad …hmm a bit strange and interesting at the same time ..but hubby likes Will Smith and it was on tv’s movie channel tonight so where watching it. I guess I will finish watching it with him . Goodnight everyone🙂
As my hubby is enjoying the hockey game on tv I am looking at paint colors online . We want to repaint our kitchen and living room it’s been 13 yrs since we built our house and feeling like we need a change defiantly over due. As you see I’m the one looking as my hubby is watching the game …okay it’s not that he doesn’t care it’s just he is sick of me not liking his color and him not liking mine so he needed a break . It’s so hard . When we had first moved in it was actually not too much of a though what we wanted and the house was painted now . It just feels so overwhelming . The more I look the colors are starting to look all the same hahahaha . Earlier I thought we had it then one issue came up do we break up the color in the hallway that is connected , follows the kitchen color or now break it up …ughh . It’s a ranch so everything is so connected . I like the idea to break it up he doesn’t . So that has led him to stop thinking about it at the moment . Oh what to do …. sadly I’m not a hockey fan so that is not going to distract me 🙂 well I guess I stop looking give it a break and see if it’s clearer tomorrow. Maybe .
Book read ? maybe since I’m settled under the covers with our electric blanket on ..yess it’s cold it was snowing an hour ago not sticking but snowing ,crazy middle of April. having to use my blanket . It will be used again tomorrow unless I can get close enough with my car to see the track , my son has a track meet tomorrow afternoon in a couple towns over . So if it’s cold it will not be fun sitting outside . Bad enough the kids stiffen up trying to run in their uniform in the cold. Once again my son is home settled in his bed watching a movie after getting home from practice. Such a record . Next week he will be back at school and then watch he will be out at night a bit more … hmm . I guess I will read for a bit Good night everyone.
Three day weekend rides are so relaxing. My hubby had a three day weekend also it’s the start of April vacation week for my son. The first photo was taken today (Monday )we woke to this hitting the windows it’s really not snow more like sleet and now it’s being washed away from the buckets of rain that has been coming down all day. The next photos are of our weekend ride before all the sleet arrived . We went on a back road and yes indeed a back road no guardrails to protect you if you veered off some parts along the river where pretty steep that I couldn’t take a photo of because I hate heights 😂this river is called the Green river if you notice yes it’s Green color because of the clay in it , a lot of people find it refreshing in the summer if your daring ..it’s so cold…it’s also a perfect river to fish in. It was a nice ride even though the temps where only in the 30’s but nice and warm in the truck. Spring is just not wanting to come.. now their saying we are looking at a cool Month of May …. oh I hope their wrong. My son was happy to be inside today after his hike /run with his track team well the ones who where daring enough to do so with the coach. Where they ended up standing in a foot of snow and extremely cold . Which sadly found out running /hiking up in a T-shirt and jogging pants.. he wasn’t lazy inside today tho just inside at the gym working out.. any how this weather is crazy but the ride was nice ..would like to see some flowers tho…. especially my roses would be a beautiful sight 🙂
It’s Saturday started off warm sunny birds where singing it was so beautiful slept with the window open all night falling to sleep to the sound of peepers . It felt like Spring had finally arrived .. hmm I guess Mother Nature didn’t think so as the day went on the winds started to blow the birds stopped singing and the temperatures started falling and did they fall ..its now evening we went from 70 yesterday to 30’s right now and freezing rain coming in and predicted for Sunday as well . My son went hiking with his track team on one of the many big mountains in our area this afternoon curious to hear how cold it was on top when he arrives home. Feels like winter is back for the moment. The peepers are defiantly not peeping tonight😂 poor Miss Abigail was loving the windows open and laying in the window sills now their closed and she is roaming around the house going room to room.. she’s not liking it as well. Soon I keep saying Spring will come and stay .
The weather is as changeable as everything else lately …starting or adjusting to all the new changes and I’m haven’t even begun to feel the changes . Less then a month my son will graduate high school and I will then feel the change more then ever . Give me strength 🙄
This afternoon was my Sons 1st Track and Field meet of the season and his last year of high school Meets so it’s bittersweet.. the day started off with snow showers but we held hope that it would not amount to anything and would stop by 3:30 , happily it did but it was brutally cold and I do not know how these kids did it running in the cold temps tend to stiffen your muscles up they kept their warm clothes on as they did their warm ups then stripped down to their uniforms of tank tops and shorts happy he had an Under armour sport shirt on to keep at least his arms warm . As us parents and family sat on the bleachers or standing by the events watching we where bundled like it was the middle of the winter … 😭he ran 3 races the 200 , 400 4×4 relay and did the shock put he did well winning his races and his friends winning their races coming in 1st place they won their 1st meet . A great start to the season . After it was over you could see the team on the ground stretching because the cold was stiffening them up . So proud of my son and his team they have been training hard. All the kids where amazing! Now my hubby and I are under the electric blanket still warming up finished our favorite Tuesday show and now watching baseball as for my son he is out with his friends celebrating getting food …oh to be young . My daughter is warmed up as well and now out with her boyfriend .so quiet night well as I just wrote this my son has arrived home and is walking a bit slow ,stiff and tired and is off to collapse into his bed . I guess the adrenaline wore off …. he could be lame tomorrow. I know I will be my hip and legs do not do well with the cold but I couldn’t miss his 1st day of his last yr , thankfully it was a Home meet so it was an easy walk and tomorrow I can rest my legs . Just needed to be there for him. ❤️
This morning my son did the biking stage of the 2018 Pentathlon in our Community . Happy it was sunny but it was cold and the wind did not help . My hubby and I watched in ahh as we watched the participants amazing… all so good and I have to hand it to them a lot of energy was used up from them. We are so proud of our son he did so well his team came in 4th over all but 1st place in their age group. He’s sore but still on the go . The pics where taking after he finished tired and sore… it will be a calm night, he went to a friends to hang at there house his friend had an ACll put in on Tuesday and shockingly was at the race on crutches and a full leg brace to sit and direct runners which way to go but that was enough to tire him out and his leg was hurting and needed to be up , he was a good support team along with another friend for my son, so my son felt he owed him to go sit with him at his house this evening. They’ll go over the day in full detail I’m sure 🙂 after my hubby and I grabbed a late lunch out and now Where home getting warm. . It’s been such a great day .
what a day everything just feels off … is off.. I just do not know everything going wrong at home then you go to the store the only two items your son wants for food there is none but every other kind . Your gas tank in your car reads to bars and 80 miles I can drive it’s a subie so I put $10 in still says 80 and 2bars showing so my daughter and I are dumbfounded so where thinking did the guy actually have gas in that pump or is my car broke? Hmm… so we go to another gas tank I add 10 more and now it reads 260 okay now it’s working . The news isn’t any better so many bad things happening .. and no answers… just been a strange day and it’s only suppertime. I am ready to crawl under the covers hahaha. Sadly I usually would be jumping for joy being that it’s the 1st day of Spring but it doesn’t look it and it’s so cold out…I’m trying to fine a silver lining here somewhere maybe it will come tomorrow when I can sit back and reflect and laugh about it.🙂
