Fourth of July…

Hi everyone! I’m finally posting after about a week .. Im learning to let go and yes realize I am not in control of anything .. who is right? But we try …. so I needed a break or should say really should say I just couldn’t write. Anyway this Fourth of July went along with exactly how I have been feeling, go figure… it was not a disappointment but a learning one. My daughter had to work but I was able to spend the day before out and about with her. My son had off and he thought we would be going to my hubby’s brother for a day in their pool and family ….. nothing , no phone call no reaching out with an invite so nothing on my hubby side ..and so my hubby and I and son made the best of it . We went for dinner at Chili’s I had never been . The food was delicious my hubby and I both had the chicken enchiladas while my son had one of their big burgers and fries after eating an appetizer of two Hamburg sliders wings and These nachos that I didn’t get a picture of. After the meal we left and went to see the fireworks for a small town they were pretty good . A lot of people and little ones running around with their glow bracelets and necklaces, so cute . My son said he remember those days like they were just yesterday. We laughed when I took a pic of him sitting with us to send to my daughter after telling her it wasn’t the same as when they were little , and wrote under pic this is my baby .. she did the laughing crying face and said it was hysterical … my son did not find it amusing (hahaha) but all in all it was nice . Came home after and chatted with my daughter and then as it became later we all settled in for the night.. Any phone calls from my hubby’s fam ? Nothing …. got to love family. Tonight there will be fireworks in our next town that they all go to we do too ..this year we will not unless my daughter makes it after work in time with here boyfriend . My son works and my hubby and I will be at my sisters for a birthday party for my niece. Today is just a typicalFriday but with my hubby off . Funny how you learn and wonder tho why do things have to be this way. But it all turned out my hubby and I made the best of this holiday and came out of it with a new perspective. ..

Fireworks ..cooler temps .. nice weekend!

Ahh woke to a cool actually cold morning. Thankfully the temps have stayed cool. Friday night was spent with family watching the Town fireworks . Where we sit you have to get there at least two hours before and just get comfortable and enjoy good conversations and laughs …or you will not find a place to park. For several years now my kids have not gone with us they do their own things with their friends sitting down where they have a festival as well .. no rides just food and shop venues , music, which mind my language but hell to get out of after it’s over . You could be sitting there for hours or praying your vehicle didn’t get scratched by someone who is squeezing in to make room for their vehicle ..

The dark slowly approached while waiting for the fireworks and the colder and windy it became my hubby and his brother had shorts on and well they were freezing, after 6 days of temps in the 100 the 60″s with wind is an adjustment. The fireworks were amazing and once they started they last longer then other Towns I had heard that had them on the 4th , well worth the chill and the wait. Today will be spent with my sister celebrating her daughters birthday sitting around her pool which I believe is too cold for me today.. yes I’m am wimpy (haha) and enjoying some drinks well my hubby will be ..I think I’ll be the designated driver he’s had a long rough week at work in the heat paving highways so he could use some drinks ( hahaha) give me coffee or ice tea and good conversation and I will be good. I hoping tonight we can come home sit out on the deck for a bit . Suppose to be a cool night again so tiki lights a blanket and the stars sound like a perfect night. Okay time to finish my coffee and do some things before we go . Have a great day everyone 🙂
