Home…

It was ..is a long tired week .. my hubby had a long week , nice but tired . Doesn’t do well away. My son did well ..had graduated from Basic Training and looked very sharp. As my daughter and I who had to stay back her with work and I who cannot fly made it through the 5 days just fine kept busy had some fun laughing .. and yes moments of feeling sad I couldn’t be there to share this moment with my son.so some sleepless ones. as well .. thinking. Happy the 5 days went fast As we waited till 2 in the morning for my son and hubby to arrive back home and seeing my son in his army graduation uniform walk through the door was priceless he looked tired but confident and sharp . With open arms we went to him . It was nice ! Always love his hugs . As straight as my hair is now from the curly ness when he left he was as bald … we both remarked on each other’s head ( hahaha) he said it felt strange being home .he felt like he was still in Missouri .. Finally settling into bed at 4 this morning we woke to the sound of the shower running ..four hrs later . Him so use to being up he was ready to run get some Christmas shopping done . And then yes the gym .. i felt a little set back seeing him kind of get back to his old self or thought this .. I just wanted to hold on to him . it’s 8 at night and I’m ready for bed and he is home and I guess is on Army schedule still he has settled in for a nine o’clock bedtime like he is use to so I had a bit of a chat with him I told him be patient with me I know you need to do what you need to do and I will back off . He said no do not back off you have every right to say these things I need and want and should rest and spend more time home that’s why I am on this block leave and I should of today so I’m sorry . I guess my son has changed a bit and we will see but I will respect his time as well well it’s time for some sleep I’ll be on here more routinely soon.. but for now please be patient with me.

He did it❤️

It’s been a good proud, happy, fun laughter filled day and now everything is picked up everyone’s gone home my son has gone to be with his friends to look back on this memorable day last day of being together as a class .. hubby is sleeping and I’m with Miss Abigail curled up in the living room chair for once .. needing some down time for myself before I settle in bed.. hmm so many things going through my mind. With in just hrs I now look at my son and I am finally able to face that he is a young man now .. no going back to high school in the fall no Booster Days no Football game … track meets .. no class color day ..etc. its pretty mind blowing. Big thing … what do I do now? All I have ever known is to be a mom , to do play dates with them , Halloween trick orc treat go to meets, bottom line take care of them , now both my kids have graduated and I will be in a different roll now . It’s scary actually , I will need to figure this out some how .. I will have plenty of spare time .. I guess my son and I will both be on a new journey …

Ready … I think!

So I think I’m ready…. well let’s see the food is bought the cake has been picked up , the grill is ready House is ready to be set up , balloons are bought . So yes all set …. except one thing …… ME ! I may have to bring some tissues … when I see my Son march in his cap and gown once again but for the Graduation. It’s just so unbelievable just can’t believe how fast he grew into a young man it feels like yesterday he was as small as the picture I posted .. yessss I took a photo of this at the store tonight … I went looking for a table cloth passed by the little kid outfits couldn’t resist … thank god my daughter was two isles over hahahs she would of been so embarrassed . 😂 I know crazy.. I’m not denying it hahaha Well waiting for him to get home from his race anxious to hear how he did. It’s looking like once again another late night .. some day I will get to bed earlier. …

Almost here …

After a emotional , proud Evening the day before at Awards Night. Spent the day cleaning the house up decluttering a bit more getting the house decent for family and friends for a gathering after the graduation. On Sunday . Not fun in the sticky humid house but needed to be done . Then the task of making stuff shells for supper . Thankfully my husband came home from work and put our air conditioners in. Upstairs ,tomorrow my daughters will go in at least she’s in the bottom half so it’s a lot cooler. Settled in bed and the air feels so good . Hopefully this humidity breaks by Sunday or it’s going to be so warm for my son and his class wearing the graduation gowns and us sitting their watching .. bad enough all of them couldn’t wait to take them off while having refreshments in there cafeteria after. Tomorrow my son goes for his final race of his high school career . He heads to the State championships at 4 in the evening .. he’s happy he made it to states for track but ready for it to be over with… it will be a late night then needs to be at the school early for the ceremony , then a week of spending time with friends till everyone starts their summer jobs and for him his first Basic Training weekend .next weekend. For the summer plus work until he leaves for full training in October . Will be a busy summer for him and an emotional one for my hubby and I trying not to think ahead but it’s hard not too.

It’s going to be a much more different summer. I will embrace it the best I can. It’s just so unbelievable that this time is here . It’s feels like it just flew up out of know where how does time pass so quickly , feels like yesterday I was up with the middle of the night feedings the endless trips hopping in the car and going for an ice cream .. which okay my hubby and I still do on occasions but as a family those days will be long gone… the endless days at the public pool my daughter working their as her first summer job checking people in getting the kids whatever they offered for snacks to purchase and I sitting with parents by the pool chatting away until it was time to jump in the pool and finish our conversations in the cool refreshing water. As our kids jumped off the diving board played pool games and snacked ..

Now it’s still watching my kids but in a different way, watching them get ready for work, friends etc and my hubby and I enjoying the evening sitting on the deck with a cool drink .. him a beer and myself with a cup of wine or water. So much more quieter. I guess there will be a definite need for bonfires with the rest of our families to occupy ourselves . Love bonfires . I’m happy my hubby just finished making ours , we had one but he moved it worried it was to close to our back deck and then if the windows were open the smoke went into the house . So have that to look forward too 🙂 hmm ..Once again I manage to hit midnight .. I guess I should get some sleep . Good night everyone.
