Tonight my dear friend and I were chatting ,work has her down . She’s tired and just feeling over whelmed . So we were chatting and she had asked if I had heard from my son . I replied with a no .. no letters only the phone call on Thanksgiving . I went on telling her I believe he’s busy with finishing what he needs to do to graduate from Basic and come home for Christmas in three weeks. I went on by saying I miss his letters and writing to him . I sent one out the weekend after Thanksgiving which he probably just got this week . I want to send him another but afraid that as soon as I drop it in the mail they’ll say no more letters . I’m hoping he sends me something soon or a phone call before graduation. I know it’s only been a week from hearing from him but for some reason it seems longer then that. Oh the mother in me… so my friend and I went on chatting and she said your going to miss writing letters I know you enjoyed it . Oh yes I did indeed . It was a nice change of pace from typing , it was comforting. I joked and said I may have to write to you followed with a laugh … she is about three towns over so about an hour away but our life’s are in different directions so we do not see each other as much as we like. She paused and I asked are you still there? She responded with a yes but with a different tone . I wondered … she went on , you know you laughed but honestly that isn’t such a bad idea. I’m Like what? She says us writing letters back and forth. Why not I think that would be fun and she stated you did say they say it’s good for the mind . I thought about it and said are you serious ? I’m in if you really are . It could be therapeutic lol . For the first time through our chat tonight she was sounding more up beat . Yes she said defiantly let’s do it . It would be a good way to empty our heads and look forward to something in the mail beside bills ( hahaha) okay then we will . We explained no time limit on replying or how short or long. And we could be as creative as we wanted. She said this will be fun bringing back something people really do not do much of anymore . Sending handwritten letters in the mail. As we ended our conversation we were both excited to try this . I hope this works out. It would defiantly be something positive to do . Since lately it doesn’t seem like a lot of positive things in the world .Tomorrow I’ll go into town and see if they even sell stationary anymore and if not at least some nice paper. Excited about this . Hope it’s what we are hoping it will be like. I’ll keep you posted.
Dragged myself out of bed early after a bit of coffee .I headed into the shower hoping it would wake me up helped but about it then went back in the direction of my coffee cup ,chatted with an old friend on line waiting for the cable guy to show as I heard banging around in the kitchen ,my son rushing to make himself breakfast so he could meet his Sargent for his detail on the weekend , the cable guy arrived to update our Tv boxes ,I was so excited the boxes we have are dinosaurs….yes so we needed them to be updated . Im simple I do not ask for much. I figure they still work why change ..hmmm well I had no choice the company said no more these need to go so they came out did the update oh my let’s just say my son came back when the guy was showing me how to run the new boxes of course my favorite soap was on and I’m like oh darn Im missing it (hahaha) that slipped out of my mouth no taking it back. ..my son just rolled his eyes ,the guy laughed at me ..in a good way and said oh good okay watch he rewinded it . I was like a kid in a candy store well will say toy store I’m not much of a candy lover but you you get the the picture 🙂the guy just laughed and said doesn’t take much to make you happy ,my son mumbles no 🙄I can’t help it I’m simple . Can’t change now . So yes I was excited damn should of done this yrs ago . After that the guy left and I decided it was time to get things done around the house. Once that was done I figured it was actually a nice day out after all the rain we had so I decided to sit out on my swing and read . My hubby arrives Home sees that I’m outside says oh no cable guy ? I looked at him puzzled yes he was here, he’s like well I see your reading I thought you be watching tv . .. hmm well love it but why waste a nice day inside . He laughed and agreed . See if it was him that tv would be on .. he is not a reader …. well time to figure out something for supper..
This my Photo for Photo Monday! This is what my Son did this past weekend , Downhill Mountain Bike Racing . Very exciting but also very dangerous as well and I was a walking worry wreck…. yes I am a mother hahaha. On Saturday was signing in getting his race number walking and then practicing riding the trail you would race down . That we did not have to stay for so I signed the permission slip and then went and did errands till my husband was home from work then we finished the rest of the errands together around the time my Son said he would be heading home an ambulance went by us then life flight flew over …..I looked at my husband and he knew what I was thinking “no it’s not him he is fine its probably not even going that way” I said okay went in the house kept busy then saw my son drive in happy to see him ,my husband joked and said oh your mom was worried and he told him what we saw and my son said they where there.. okay back to worrying again. My son was scratched up on his leg said he did go down and did claim the trails where slick and he was a bit worried. So he went in cleaned up and took it easy the rest of the night and I think it was a long sleepless night for both of us.
Sunday Race Day: we got their he was nervous but excited and I felt the same way a lot of people their music playing food cooking it was sunny for the most part of the day my daughter showed up after work and he headed up on the lift with his bike. …and we waited lets say I held my breath when his number was announced and within minutes he came flying down , he did well very well for not doing it for two yrs he didn’t come in first or even close but was safe happy and satisfied with the time. I guess since he has become older and wiser he knows he is not invincible and things happen and that is what nerved him…good thing he is older more experienced and cautious . I am we all are so proud of him. ….and now on to the next one oh yeah there is more.
Good Morning! This morning I slept in no 5:30 alarm and now just enjoying my first cup of coffee. So it begins end of a chapter to a beginning of a new chapter for my husband and I. My Son got his drivers license yesterday and lets say a bitter sweet moment for me as we got back to our house after the driving test and getting a few things I needed , he grabbed his school bag and said okay I am ready to go are you sure ? you don’t need the car I said I’m fine all set just be careful he smiles and responds back with I will. as I watch him get in the car and drive off to school I just stood there… yes my baby is driving where did the time go. it will be nice not to have to go and bring him everywhere because he is a very active boy it will a bit challenging for a little bit sharing my vehicle until he finds a car or I do, so far have it covered so this morning he took the car and I will grab it after since he has a late track meet and the car doesn’t need to sit in the school parking lot all day. so another new chapter I know every parent goes through this I have already my oldest though my daughter but I did not worry as much because she has always been calmer cautious just the total opposite of my son and he is my last so my day will have more free space in it and maybe a bit more worry for now but the look on my Sons face when he passed was priceless it was the same look when he got his 1st little bike at 3yrs old and my heart just melted at the sight of his smile.
