Once again here we are Monday again . And late afternoon at that .Had a Dr.’s appointment . Routine blood work followup. Then back home to cleanup the house and chatted with my daughter while we did our things.. It’s a rainy cold day … a rude awakening after a beautiful warm sunny weekend. Sitting on the deck with my book or just with my daughter chatting and enjoying the sounds around us was nice. My son went for his interview he said it went well but will see if they call him. Crazy transitioning time for him . All of us … when I think about how busy I was .. we were with little kids running around and having to be some place or another, every minute of the day play dates , school open houses , sport events. ..seems like only yesterday. Busy was nice . I miss it at times.. maybe not the running part I guess I will admit.. but the chaotic parts of friends running in and out of the house . Sleepovers, loud music .. I know all the things I’ve mentioned before on my blog. I guess seeing the transitioning my son is going through brings it all back to me . It was more fun is what I think he is thinking . (hahaha) he was always rushing to grow up and now he is and I think he love to take it back .. well maybe somethings. ๐Ÿ™‚ life is not easy it has its up and down moments .. it’s struggles and rewards . But it’s defiantly worth it. The key is just keep moving forward and having faith . I try to tell both my adult kids this . I know they agree but do not want to hear it. When things are on the downside . They will learn . I think we all keep learning no mater how old we are . I know I have had a year of my own transitioning and learning. But like I’ve told my kids keep moving forward that’s what I tell myself . At times it’s slower then it would be fore them but it’s still moving forward..


Monday ..

The weekend as come and gone .. and now it’s already 9:00 at night I’m just finding the moment to get on here today. After a night of trying to sleep both my son and I . Talking at midnight about life. Him worried with finding a job which he is having a hard time with that. He has applied at many places and I told him wait but check in with them after a couple of day to make sure they received it. Plus he’s having a time acclimating from Army time to now being home. His sleep pattern is off so that’s why we were up at midnight talking. I’m such a person who feels way too much and when someone in my family is having a rough time I can’t help to feel that pain so deeply , probably too much . I take in so much of someone’s energy it can make or break my day. Probably sounds strange but that’s how I feel. I have been known to be called too sensitive and I guess it shows more when my family is hurting … I think being too sensitive makes me think to much as well .. not a good thing It’s so hard being this way.

On another note today is my hubby’s bday so the kids and I gave him a new coffee maker . The other one needs to go. And a Fitbit will be on its way soon ordering it this week ,he wanted one and I left that up to my son to find him a good one. We had a small cake As he requested if I had it my way it would of been a bigger cake but the smaller cake my daughter picked was perfect a chocolate cake with a truffle topping frosting, it was so rich that a small piece was really filling especially right after eating supper. . So he could make a wish and blow out his candles which I’m very adamant about. My hubby open his other present from his mom and close aunts that he received on Sunday at our nieces 16 bday party . I think he enjoyed his Birthday tonight. Now the presents are open some cake eaten my hubby off to bed and my kids and I sitting in the living room watching The Voice and on our devices annnnd .. awake๐Ÿ™„ yeah hopefully we get tired soon. I have appointments in the morning so my daughter is going to take me so I do not have to drive her car . My son has some appointments as well so he will have my car. Yes we need to have some decent sleep tonight. Ive started another book it’s one of my daughters books she has had . I read it way back when she had bought it. Its a young adult read Looking for Alaska by John Green.. once in awhile their fun to read . I do not totally remember it so I’m enjoying it. I finish my last book finally and just couldn’t think of what to read next so it’s an in between read . I’m thinking I will have it read pretty quick . I guess I should be looking for my next book very soon. For now it’s time to try to settle . Have a good night everyone.


After all the strange things the day before …mess up at the bank , Post Office, the day went on as usual .. making supper . Etc etc .. then my son called all shook saying how the interview didn’t look good .. I try to reassure him to not think about it . It sounded like it went well to me of what he had told me . Its the Military part that had him shook and the look I guess they gave him about possible training days in the summer. …will see. The afternoon turned into evening and both my my kids ate supper at home then my hubby and daughter settled on the couch while I in my chair watching tv an old show that plays every night . MASH anyone remember this ? My daughter doesn’t care for it ,thinks it’s old .. and doesn’t see how my hubby and I find the humor in it .My son in his room. Then 8:30 came and my son was craving PB&J but someone kept the jelly out instead of putting it back in the fridge they put it in the cupboard and it went bad .. hmm my son said not him but I know better(haha) I said I want an ice cream at McDonalds yes a Sm and quick one. My daughter jumped up I want one but I do not want to drive ,my hubby was like I have to get some sleep. My son spoke up said I’ll drive and get some Jelly at the market … off we went . It was nice being with my two kids it’s been awhile . Even if it was only moments .. we smalled talked.. laughed . It was nice . Now about the ice cream a bad choice but it doesn’t happen often and It was worth the calories to be with both kids . After we drove in to the driveway we stood outside looking around for possible animals roaming around in the night woods .all we saw was a possum scurrying away deeper into the woods away from us . Thankfully he didn’t hiss which they do when their caught off guard. I think the wild animal was inside running up and down the hallway as we entered the kitchen… yes Miss Abigail wondering where we went. Then the moments were over we all went to our bedroom to settle into some sleep my hubby already snoring away . I fell asleep to the sound of my son laughing and talking whether he was on his game or phone it was a nice sound to drift off to sleep too. And yes he got his jelly๐Ÿ™‚


I woke and quickly realize I needed to get to the bank . My son has a job interview so he needs my car … yes at the moment we are sharing a car until he gets one . It hasn’t been too bad we been working around each other’s things I don’t really use it much but still need it . Hopefully he gets this job. If he does he will use his dads truck when I need mine by dropping my hubby off at work and I picking my hubby up in the afternoon . Right now I have appointments set up where my daughter can bring me . But today was crazy . I rushed, through a brush through my hair ,put some make up on and was off . Let’s see the poor guy messed up with my transactions and scared the heck out of me . The look on his face through the drive up camera said it all . I told him it was fine do what he needed to do to fix it I could wait . Well I rolled the window up because a song came on the radio that I LOVE and singing is my stress release . So I’m singing and turning off and on making sure he wasn’t at the camera I kept singing well I look back at it again and there he was . I stopped singing rolled down the window so he could hear the music if he could so he didn’t think I was talking to myself ๐Ÿ™„ well he fixed it 20 mins later . Apologizing over and over and I told him it was fine it happens with a smile on my face . Or was it embarrassment …

Then I went to the Post Office to see if my packages were in .hmm ..only one and too light . She said that’s all there was hmm …I think I have half a sectional cover. Ughh so I’ll be having to call the store . I got home all flustered told my son how it went at the bank ( not my singing embarrassment ) and he grabbed the package and I told him about only the one . He tried to lighten my mood by saying mom were you a bully to that teller with his kidding smirk . He knows I wouldn’t be rude. Then he looked at box said if you can’t open the box I will when I get home and will see what’s in it I have to go. With that said the house is quiet I have a meatloaf baking in the oven so the house smells delicious . I’m drinking my coffee I didn’t have this morning while my day time shows are on. I’m recording it so if I’m not totally focus on it I can watch later. As I’m writing. The sun is shining and my mind is doing what it always does and shouldn’t . Thinking… I need to let things go and I have . But I m always thinking of how to make things better for my family . Yes! My kids , my adult kids , I know things are not easy and life is a challenge oh I do know… but why is it so hard for some but so easy for others. I know .. we do not always know the story behind people .. it’s just it seems so easy for some and it’s hard watching your kids struggle.. even if their adults . Such the hard part of being a parent .. Mother.. I know I need to let them go and deal with the ups and downs themselves .. I did .. it’s just doesn’t seem that this new generation is as strong , confidence know matter how hard us parents have tried , society’s rules per say is so hard .. backwards I feel our kids are so much more weaker .hmm technology has gotten so bad it absorbs everyone’s life , the cell phones , social media , I don’t know if that’s it but the , patients isn’t there or we just want more.. then I did when we were growing up.. I guess it’s not up to me or anyone but ourselves how we live .. as long as they’re happy , trying, being a good person, and save. All my opinion like I said ..just thinking.

Photo Monday!

It’s Monday already and already mid day. It’s a sunny and in the middle 40’s not bad. It feels nice coming through the windows. Had a nice weekend . A fun Saturday evening out to eat for my nieces 16th Birthday. We went to The Texas Roadhouse a lot of fun . Country music playing in the distance a lot of food! And the waitresses and waiters line dance off and on ,if it’s your birthday they bring out a horse saddle on wheels and the birthday person sits on it and the one waiting on your table yells out today is this ones birthday can you give out a big yahoo! And let’s say we hit a Birthday night a lot of yahoo’s๐Ÿ˜‚ so my photos are from over the weekend . I hope you enjoy. And yes the weekend ended with a beautiful sunset.

Home …

It’s Tuesday the sun is shining the temps are mild . I’m sitting here thinking it’s a home kind of day… I’ll make my homemade chicken and rice soup. For dinner. Catch up on my daytime shows while cooking.. The day will be quiet ,hubby at work my kids out and about. And that is fine . I’m embracing the quietness today . It’s odd how lately when there is a full moon I can’t sleep well at night well not that part that is odd it’s the feeling of content, some people when there is a full moon feel anxious or no different . I’m going to embrace this feeling . Why not. After soup and shows are done I will tackle my reading I’ve been wanting to do.. and just let the day just be . I think we need times like this . I know I spend a lot of time at home but I’m usually doing what needs to be done within my limits. And thinking A LOT ! Right now enjoying my coffee and catching up on the morning news.

Loving our new used leather sectional but I m looking desperately for a cover for it . Leather is not easy to keep safe with a cat around .. it worries me a bit the family who had it before at dogs but were not allowed on furniture . And let’s just say it’s not easy with sizing and the fact they come in sections the cover so $ adds up but I figure being free I can splurge a bit on a cover. I may need my son to search the internet for this . He’s pretty good at researching things and finding a good price … too good at times . ๐Ÿ˜‚ okay it’s time to finish my coffee. Enjoy your day!

Long day of nothing..

It’s midnight so I’m posting late and very short … it was a beautiful relaxing weekend . Saturday spent with our family at their house enjoying good food , drinks and card games. And a lot of laughs. Sunday was a day of hanging around the house .. lazy is good. So that’s how it was spent . It’s Monday and a day of nothing . Except an enjoyable ride to Starbucks with my daughter then a quiet evening chatting away with her while hubby slept after work .. not felling that great. My son had a class he took tonight two hours away so staying with a friend in his college dorm that is near by so he didn’t have to travel home at 10 tonight . Yes so I should be sleeping. I think the full moon is keeping me awake …But time to try . Hope everyone had a great Monday. Goodnight. Oh and the sunset was so beautiful this evening had to post! Okay now going to bed๐Ÿ™‚
