Better day…

After a bad day the day before, today was much better cooler morning , I got to enjoy my morning coffee a bit longer after a late night of catching up on episodes of sharp objects on HBO .. mind blowing . Then the usual a pick up here and there around the house not much to clean up. Then I enjoyed sometime outside before the humidity slowly creeped in. Decided to run some errands with my daughter then it was back home time for supper everyone did their own thing light supper it was. My son was feeling better after the allergy reaction to the new cat that will be missed dearly but just wasn’t going to workout with Miss Abigail being a bully as well. My son has decided to wait until he gets back from basic training in March being that he realized how fast Oct would be here when he leaves for Basic. He’s thinking a dog ,we think the cat will still probably not like it at first but will adapt to it better and my son won’t be effected allergy wise.

This evening my other half and I stayed inside no sitting out to warm and buggy plus my other half had had enough of the outdoors after working in it all day. So we watched the nightly news and then I grabbed my book as he laid on the couch with his phone. I was rocking in my favorite chair as I read he remarked how he couldn’t believe how I could rock and read at the same time he said it’s always amazed him and made him feel a bit queasy watching me ( hahaha) the funny thing is as I read on ..the book was getting better and better and the faster I rocked ( hahaha) he then remarked how my face expression showed how much I was into it , I laughed and said well it’s so good I can’t read it fast enough. We did earlier put a sm load of wash in and the washer had stopped he said keep reading I got this your enjoying yourself . I think he new how hard it was the day before having to deal with the whole animal scene and bringing the poor thing back to the shelter. It did break my heart. … as I read my husband said look only 8:30 and it’s totally dark already .. so it begins the days getting shorter it just seems earlier this year summer in not over until my daughters birthday the middle of Aug then I will be ready for the change of season . I have plenty of books ,just feel bad when I’m reading and my other half is just laying there on his phone I wish he would read . But not going to happen .. soon football will be on . I know shouldn’t feel a bit guilty but I do at times because once I get into a book my attention is only on that . Well I just looked at the time it’s late time to get some sleep. So good night everyone.

Days getting shorter…

At 7:20 tonight I realized the sun had set and it was getting dark out….so it begins shorter days , where has the summer gone … not that I’m unhappy to see it go it’s been a challenging and sad one. My son received his class schedule and all the paper work that needs to be signed and sent back to the school but sadly my mind is having a hard time getting back into the routine of another school yr so I think I will take a couple of days to take a breather from the have to’s I know my son is hahaha he slept the day away today but it was well needed. So I will give myself a break stop beating myself up that I’m not being wonder mom and take those two days one day at a time and reflect over this summer and learn from it then go from there. I must say it’s nice to see my son home and reading his book he needs to read for school. Then worrying where he is running around to with his buddies . Being his Senior yr I’m hoping there will be more nights like this then last yr when he had more free time which In his case is not always s good thing and was out. We will see if I have anything to do about it🙂


Where is this summer going ?  Why does it feel like it’s leaving us so fast…well not the temps but the date the nights getting darker a bit earlier each night. In 3 weeks my son starts is Senior yr of Highschool and Cross Country practices and this year will either fly by or creep , a lot to do this yr to get him ready for college next yr ….okay I have to slow down here  , one step one day at a time like I told my anxious Son who has many things going around in his head . Also it’s unbelievable that my daughter will be 22 yrs old this month where is this time gone by as well . I  am just so overwhelmed  with this as each day goes by , and now that we are getting near the end of summer  vacation and I usually feel like I’m ready to get back to the norm and routine but honestly I do not know what that is anymore …my daughter may live here but she does what she needs to do and has her friends work,..  life . My son does not need me to wake up early and get him off to school he is not a morning person so he has his own routine . So I get up grab a cup of coffee turn on the news  and enjoy my coffee untill my daughter gets up  and have a cup with her chat a bit before she starts her day and then I do my things . Which is not as much I have more leisure time . Yes another thing to adapt to.  As I write this it’s 8:30?at night and it already pitch black out . Seems way to early for this.  Yes indeed.
