I was reading a post just now from one of my favorite bloggers and she was talking about distance and reconnecting with her spouse who is deployed you would understand more if you check out her blog ,This Beautiful life it’s called .check her site out iit is beautiful , you will love her writing. And her she is such a nice person.
I’m laying here in bed and I’m thinking ..yes I know wrong time🙂 but the house is a bit warm so it’s hard to settle , so it dawned on me my daughter is 22 and living her life yes I see her but yes it’s not the same .My son is graduating and looking at college and army and well hmm . .. hubby and I have adapted to having kids around , taking care of them and soon it’s back to where we started full circle…yes a bit different we are still paren’ts but so not the same . We will be back to being us , a couple . I know it’s all apart of life but it’s new to us .. and well we need to reconnect our brains to let’s go to a movie … let’s go away for the weekend and we just can do it the two of us .. but then it’s what will we talk about it’s always been about the kids . Yes it was just us at one time BUT we are older , we both have changed it’s not like we can go back to who we use to be or do what we use to do life is different now we are different . So as my kids embark on their new journey their parents are as well. Reconnecting what a thought…
it’s Monday a fresh new week to get back into a routine ,a full week of school, sports meet warmer temps no big storms insight sadly my daughter is still out of work due to illness but hoping she feels some improvement when she wakes up. Laundry is going beds are made kitchen is cleaned up after breakfast . I am now sitting down catching up on the morning news and enjoying a cup of coffee ahhh so nice. I’ve started the book I posted and started a new coloring page over the weekend which kept me busy and warm
. I am going to pat myself on the back , if you read my last post I wrote how my son was out with his girlfriend and I was NOT going to text him to have him check in. or worry and I didn’t well I didn’t text. I wouldn’t say I worried but hoped he drove slow and careful on his way home. I got into the Golden Globes with my hubby and didn’t realize my son had texted me ….it wasn’t that long until I noticed but it hopefully showed him was waiting with my phone in hand . He texted “on my way home. ” I do not know who was more surprised 🙂him for checking his phone and seeing no text from me or I seeing his text .. before I knew it he was walking in the door he talked a little bit and I tried not to do the twenty questions just how was Mary ? Did you have a good time? And after that he said goodnight and was off to bed. Now to keep this going oh am I trying….so hard when I’ve been by their side from day one through their first cut to their first everything to their first letting goesI can’t tell you what is the hardest part their first cut or letting go ….maybe letting go because it’s i that is now hurting not with them but just I because this is what I’ve known for so long .. my daughter is so different we have always been close and we are friends as well . With my son it just feels so different. I know boys let go differently then girls but this is ……different 😥 no hand book in the world could of warned me how this would feel. I’m am trying and I will keep doing this. Everyone tells me go out with friends do things with your husband I am but we are not big go to the movies we like watching them when they come out and we can cozy up at home and watch them . We have always been homebodies .. before kids we out dinking and dancing on the weekends but now that doesn’t hold an interest . We have spent nights out at relatives and enjoyed some drinks food laughs more that has been nice just need more idea s but for now it’s Home Movies going out for coffee dinner I guess we are heading in the right direction .. but it just feels different .
Happy New Years everyone! Ringing in the New Years was a very different one this year my husband nod I went to his families instead of staying home like we have in the past 10 yrs. it felt strange without my kids, my daughter worked then went out with a friend and came back home early and watched the festivities on TV and my son who we thought was going to a friends house after we left ended up staying home because his friends decided not to do anything so we brought him food home and even though he won’t admit it I believe he was a little bummed because after eating the food we brought he said he was tired and didn’t feel like staying up till 12 and went to bed at 11 I was happy he was still up in bed when 12 hit so I could wish him a Happy New Year . After that we where all tired and it was cold we went to bed. Morning came fast and the new year is here and I am happily still not doing a resolution , I think a try to be less worry mom when both kids are out especially my son who I bug checking in on him too fast ….try I say thankfully even though he seemed bummed I was happy he was home. Any ways it was a busy day taking the tree down and decorations put away and getting the house back in its order. My daughter of course is out with a friend and my son is home writing College essays to apply for colleges. Plus homework and getting ready for back to school tomorrow.
I at the moment have sat for a bit and now need to finish preparing supper. This day is flying by I just hope this month does as fast I do not like the month of January it’s my dread month ….too long and too cold and it’s just depressing, I’m trying not to think this way I hope my coloring books and books I have to read and writing most defintantly keep me busy as long with getting out to spend more time with my best friend. I am happy we gain a minute a of light each day so that’s is a plus. 🙂
Good Morning ! so this is a different photo I would usually put up:) but for some reason I thought this was kind of neat ….yes its a wine cork but I just love the detail of the foot on it . I’ve never saw such a cool design on a wine cork hahaha so I thought this deserved a photo . I think the wine brand is Bare foot or the name of it …my daughter had it she heard it was good .She loves trying certain wines I liked the cork hahahah I know silly but like I said it does not take much to make me laugh or find interesting.. so this my photo for photo Monday.
I love this window… usually I sit to the side of it in my comfy chair and I write , read , do adult coloring because its so bright and sunny and warm So lately Miss Abigail as decided she likes my chair so she is taking a nice afternoon nap in it and I am sitting on the couch and I am head on now with the window and I guess I should thank her hahaha the view is even more beautiful and the sun is bright and I still can feel the warmth of the sun. I guess sometimes looking at things in a different angle is a good thing .We sometimes get so custom to looking at things in the same way that we loose sight of what we could be missing . nice to shake things up a bit . even if its just looking out my window in a different view can make you think.
So this is my photo for my photo Monday. It’s pretty isn’t it? well I think so and my daughter thought so as well. As we sat in her car and the water went swooshing I believe that’s a word well will go with it because that’s how it sound as it went around us and the scent of bumble gum was in the air and the water just kept hitting every side of her car and the the lighted sign lite up telling us the car now was going to get wax sprayed on it and this is what formed on the windshield yes we are in a car wash hahaha and the wax was rainbow color . pretty amazing ….well we thought so if you haven’t figured it out yet ,well let me say it doesn’t take much to impress us and take a picture of it …yes we are crazy we where snapping away pics of this. If people could of seen us they would of thought we had some serious issues but sadly never saw colored wax. so I thought this would be perfect to post because it was just so different then my other photos I have posted. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
