Stormy Evening !

Just as my daughter and I drove in to the driveway , the skies opened up and down came the rain the pounding of the thunder and the flash of the lightening… Tv , phone sending out storm alerts. Off and on now for the past 3 hrs ,we keep loosing Tv , I keep getting friends messaging me asking if there was was an accident by our house … we are a bit away from the main road so we couldn’t tell. My kids made it out okay . When I asked they said there are trees down . All over my Facebook I’m hearing of power outages. So far we have ours on . So it’s a good night to stay in we’ll .., tell my kids that , that are out and about. Hmm .. so anyhow I’m starting another book after happily finishing my last one last night. It feels good to read . Especially tonight.

Today I printed out a lot of my photos off my phone ..hoping this helps my phone a bit. Now to buy some frames and add to my picture wall in our living room. That I will start tomorrow. Plus need to take the rest off and start my sons photo book of his high school yrs of track meets football games , friends, prom, etc .. so many pictures ugh this will not be easy. Well for now time to get back to reading and hope the storms are calming down now so road crews can get out and clear the trees off the roads.

People….

Hi Everyone I hope all of you had a good weekend and Monday.I did until this evening just warning you this could be a long post beware 😭… I alway thought I was a people person actually I don’t know now I guess it depends on the person so maybe not .I looked up the definition and it states people that are good with dealing with people okay well yes and no then . A person I have known since my son and her daughter went to preschool and now graduating together I could take her but would need a break because she could become over bearing with a lot of un called forbragging and know it all …but this past last week we have done well chatting through text well the Facebook app and it’s actually been pleasant .Tonight she stepped over the line over something yes important but not important enough to be hurtful .. My son didn’t participate at the fundraiser for his class he went to sports practice and then came home and did homework and my hubby and I where not going to go then and we respected his option to op out he told them no it was a dinner .. one he wasn’t the only one who didn’t participate but that’s is not the point.. I know any how it’s a bit late I told him what’s it for we have paid for a yearbook they where not suppose to , will be paying for his graduation gown so where is the money going ? My son said I believe for our first class reunion my hubby and I where like what…. that’s 5 yrs away … and this lady had been on me all day leaving messages on oh how her daughter was running everywhere doing all the work and it just kept going … now she can stretch the truth a bit and her daughter can over do herself to try to look like the best once again not the point …and remind you I was still ok was not letting her get to me. My son has had a hard time lately with classmates he’s ready he needs to graduate soon he does not do drama and well he told me I would regret chatting with her and my daughter warned me as well he and she where so right she rubbed people in my face this evening because my son and hubby and I where not going to let her push us to go … if anyone knows me you do not do that.. then I’m done …. and she hit hard with that and all I have ever done was mind my own business take care of my family , teach my kids to be good and be polite we have done what we needed to do. This yr so anyways we taught our kids never let anyone ever belittle you well .. hmm I guess doing this I’ve shown people you can walk all over me .. oh mo I’m not that easy so now I am done. People do not know me .

I try to be a nice person to everyone . I do not get in other peoples business . I honestly think my blogger friends oh and my family and closes friends know me the best. I can be myself when I write ..right now yes I’m venting … just so angry, hurt if I could of stomped around earlier I would of but I can’t because that would only hurt my hip 😂. I’ve only shown kindness to this person but then to throw people in my face especially the people who’s kids hurt my sons feelings and trust so much and this lady knows it is a low blow. Why? These parents are as bad as their kids with drama …. why are people so hurtful life is so short and people worry and hurt others over the simplest things. My kids say I worry too much about making people happy that I should worry about myself is that the right thing? Is that what we are suppose to do ? I really do not know anymore.. of course for starters my son said Facebook should go hahaha true….getting there . Yes I am just trying to figure things out …

Friday

This is what our Friday afternoon became …yes snow April 6th ..crazy then by evening the sun came shining in and now it’s night and it raining and cool out. The kids are out so hubby and I are watching tv and chatting .. it was a day of decluttering the house as I watched my soapys yes have a 2nd one I’m getting into . Gives my mind a break from thinking about all the college things and it’s nice to take a break from it. My daughter was off today but was busy cleaning her place and doing laundry. . I’m finding that my Facebook days are limiting more and more everyday I just can’t take all the drama and that’s not because of the kids on it but adults … 🙄 I feel like I’m back in high school again and I just can’t.

I’m happy I reached out and chatted with a friend I haven’t talked to in awhile on the phone . Our kids grew up together she lives with her family in another town about an hr away if that . Her youngest is also graduating as well this yr so we talked about her daughter and my son . Then just talked about whatever , it was nice it’s hard when you get older and your friends are busy with their family things too so I will take what time I can get with my FRIENDS yes I’m emphasizing t hat because we are friends not just because our kids went to school with theirs because they didn’t . In this town I live in half the people are friends just because their kids are friends so sadly the parents form a clique even more if the kids are in the same sport together and sadly some of theses parents are not nice not trustworthy and the drama is crazy so when I’m on Facebook this is what I see and I like and need to stay out of it and my son likes it as well . This is his world I do not remember my parents in my friend world they had their own separate friends and so I could just be with my friends . Yes I do keep in touch with the parents my kids hung out for safety reasons but their not the people I would share private things with or it would be spread throughout this town 🙄 my hubby and I are private we are nice but we mind our own business . I must say everyday of your life your still learning something hahaha and I’m learning this new chapter one day at a time and trying to keep my sanity intact 🙂 I guess I will finish a show with my hubby , my son is home now and my daughter should be sometime soon . Good night everyone.

Monday!

Today I realized that its been 4days  of not being on Facebook , yes I know wow what an accomplishment 🙂 actually for me it is so to speak. IM alway on Fb  or at least checking it out every morning…since I had an issue on it last week I took it off my phone things where posting on it that I didn’t do , my friends told me they where having the same issues so I changed the password and took it like I said of my phone. Now it’s on my IPad but my phone is always near by so I tend to go on it more there. I guess a blessing in diguise . This weekend I read more  did more adult coloring and on Friday night I was home by myself I watched two movies and actually enjoyed them without distractions. It was so nice . Today I got so much done and then went with my daughter to Starbucks for a coffee butterscotch flavor so good.  I must say it’s nice and I do not even feel like I’m missing anything . I do still have my Twitter on my phone but that doesn’t pull me in as much there’s really no drama on it . I just like to see what’s trending or   Catching up on the news on it , So yes defiantly keep that on. This tech world can really take over …if you let it. Will see how long I will last. But I know one thing I will keep it off my phone . IM liking that I’m getting back into the reading and coloring and my nose is not in my phone all the time 🙂 image

Love this!

a funny but accurate post , I went on Facebook today and this post quiz whatever you want to call it came upon my newsfeed like it reads at the bottom ” what did life teach you in 2017?” These things are always coming up on Facebook but I was intrigued by what it would come up with …I was ready for a good laugh. To my surprise this came up as you can read the post was so accurate, well I didn’t learn it as of this yr I’ve always have felt and lived this way but yes more so this year. I was so amazed I had to save it and yes post it to my fb in which some cases I do not but this was so me . I know it probably went by my post I put up is what your thinking ……maybe but then again I do not post on FB very often. So yes I’m very impressed with this and wanted to share this on here . Some things cannot be explained 🙂

What a week it was..

it’s been 4 days since I was last on here which seem like forever. last week was very busy  challenging  and a moment of change. My daughter finally found herself a car she has been sharing my car for two years yes two years , I do not drive that often so it worked out especially in the winters because I worried about slipping  on ice with my hip.Summer was a little more challenging with my son being out of school for summer vacation and needing to be places . Its funny how after doing something for so long you adapt and knowing that this is so great for my daughter and her independency . It was a moment of change and reality that my daughter is an adult … yes I did realize this but this was  just  an awakening for me .   I know this will make things easier for me  that when I do need to do something or just want to go somewhere I can I can just do it , tell you a little secret sometimes it was nice if my daughter needed the car for work then I could stall doing what I needed  to do. yes I know not good but sometimes just staying home is not so bad . well now I have no choice. very happy though  for my daughter .It was time. Also during this pass week my Son had his first outdoor track meet for this yr. His team won!! and my son was amazing he came  in 2nd in the Javelin 2nd in triple jump and 1st in both of his hurdle races I am so proud of him I am happy I can write it on my blog my son does not like me writing it on my facebook or posting pictures he doesn’t want it to look like I am bragging. I am not just so proud and want to share that is it. I am so proud of his whole team they all were so amazing .. Sad part I did have to watch it from my car it was on Friday and it was so cold snowing or sleeting off and on and windy and my hip and legs would not do well sitting there so I stayed in the car my husband walked around and watched . Sadly on Saturday he woke up sore and at first we thought because he worked so hard and the cold had stiffened his muscles but as  the day when on it came apparent he had come down with what was going around at his school and in our town so he has been in bed off and on sleeping with a fever and body aches . poor guy. so like I said it’s been quite a week and a cold one for April it’s unbelievable this weather everyone around us has something. so that sums it up of my busy week …and another milestone . Do not blink because life changes so fast and kids grow up way to fast.
