All home together!

It’s 8:09 at night and my son is finally home. His flight didn’t come in untill 6:40 tonight instead of 12.39 this afternoon the storms in the South delayed everything. Now we all are home together all 4 of us . It’s nice . Especially with having both my kids home tonight. Relaxing watching tv and chatting. It’s so nice! I can’t say it enough. My son is calm ,relaxed . .. but still coughing bad so he will be seeing the Dr. on Monday if possible. Well going to spends sometime with everyone until we call it a night.

I’m noticing a white mark on my sons face I think it’s the lighting at the airport when I took it quickly when he jumped into the truck ….so it’s not food lol๐Ÿ™‚

Finally!

I’ve realized I skipped a day of posting . Yesterday was a amazing happy day. Well all days are pretty good but this one was exceptionally happy. Finally heard from our Son since arriving in Missouri on base last week . He called to let me know his address and was finally heading to the Basic Training unit… yes took a bit I guess quite a process. He said he sent me several letters in the mail and if I received them ? As of yesterday I hadn’t but at least I heard his voice he sounded good but was persistent on my checking the mail .We got off the phone adding he wouldn’t be able to call for two weeks but send him letters .

Today I woke drank my cup of coffee did a bit of things around the house but was anxious to get to the post office to check for mail. The results were 4 letters all from my Son .. the thoughts, questions went through my mind as I drove home wondering why so many and what I would find in them . I arrived home settled in cozied up in my chair and started reading he went by 1st letter then 2nd letter so on.. I read and my heart felt every word I won’t say what he wrote .. somethings are personal . Let’s say a lot of adapting .. adjusting going on for him but as I got to the last letter #4 he was doing better. Things looked brighter . Then my wandering mind thought what would I right ? I know be uplifting encouraging words . But what for excitement he knows it’s not that exciting . But then again he was missing home .. so home it was ..now I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote a handwritten letter but once I got going the words flowed as did my fingers and within seconds I had filled a page . Writing felt so good . So refreshing then typing on a keyboard or tapping on a phone. Words just filled the page. There was seriousness and humor . It was just unbelievable I ended up with a two page letter for him was it exciting .? Couldn’t say but honest and straight from the heart it was . I folded it up and placed it in an envelope and drove back to the post office with in 15mins of it closing to get a stamp for it and mail it . I wanted him to have a letter on its to him to look forward to.

I’m thinking it has me wanting to start a journal again like back in the day when I had so many journals filled with thoughts ..dreams life . For now though I ll just keep the letter flowing he wants them needs them . I am so proud of him . And proud of myself for not over thinking and just letting go and just did what I needed he needed . Now I’m going to get off read my book and then say my prayers before bed . Good night everyone.

Books..more books and movies..

I woke pretty early which is unusual for me since not having to wake and get kids going in the morning for school . So I tend to stay up late and sleep in. After a day of dreary wet cold weather . I gave in early and went to bed at a decent time . I woke to a nice sunny crisp fall morning. Enjoyed coffee with my daughter and some conversation then we headed in different directions to start our day.I left went to the post box ..hmm… nothing from my son. I know it’s early. But I can at lest hope..then headed to the library FINALLY ! I did it I was still in their system just needed. to renew my expired card but not having it still . The librarian issued me a new one . I Lucked out ..thinking I would have to order the books I wanted ,she had had them plus I picked out a book that looked really interesting and the Author was local ..even better. I found two movies . Chatted with people I hadn’t seen in awhile and walked out about an hr later with three books and two movies. I guess I’ll be reading after my hubby and I watch hour favorite shows and he goes to bed early for work . As well as a day when no errands need to be run and house is cleaned up . I can curl up with a nice hot cup of tea and a book on these cold days. Happy I finally went . It was nice and everyone there was pleasant. This way it’s cheaper too then buying the books I guess it’s time to see about supper hubby will be home soon and hungry . The Conners are on tonight the premier since they took Roseanne Barr off her own show . Don’t know if I’ll watch it or not tonight I’m recording it just Incase but that subject is for another day …. ๐Ÿ™„ I’m thinking of watching The Voice ,then start one of the books .I’m thinking that reading before bed helps me sleep better too. Okay time to take care of supper.

Finally….

It’s going on 8 :00 at night … where did this day go… I just get done posting the day before what will I do now with both kids graduated? Hmm …let’s see I haven’t had two minutes to think about it today. Yes I guess being on my phone off and on all day doesn’t help to get things done in a timely manner .. been texting or messaging with this friend of mine so every time I would start something around this house after yesterday’s graduation my phone would buzz in my pocket .. yes I sometimes carry it around especially when I have the music playing loud ( love loud music while cleaning) so if my phone went off I would hear it . This friend of mine kept sending me photos or talking about the graduation , she was on a roll today with the chatting. I think I may suggest we get together for coffee or tea and chat (hahaha) as I write this she keeps messaging me let’s see I manage to get the laundry done the the paper plates cups etc put away. clean the cooler out hoping as I opened it there would be least one strawberry wine. cooler left, nothing… that was disappointing ๐Ÿ™„anyways I wiped everything down and then said heck with it I’ll order out for wraps tonight. Need to keep those on hand to just make at home. I figured since it was so cold and rainy out , only in the 50″s today and it’s June unbelievable … I would get done with what I need to do and then read my book that I have neglected too long, or watch a show on Netflix I had started last week. Hmmm no that didn’t happened, let’s see I still have time to read for a bit , kids are out ,hubby is sleeping suffering badly from allergies since he came home from work . I guess it is a good time as ever . Iwill do that. Must say though I’m happy this week is over it was such a crazy ride with my sons moods ,I’m hoping with being out of high school it changes things ,time will tell he’s off with his friends after going food shopping for himself .I believe getting himself or should say keeping himself fit .Friday he goes for his first part of training till Sunday for National Guard so I believe he will stay over that whole weekend . Well time to settle and enjoy my book.๐Ÿ™‚
