I woke after a very restless night of waking up every hour … my son had to be up for 4:00 this morning to be ready to leave the house by 5 … so I was so worried he would sleep through the alarm that my my mind must of been having me react this way . When the hr I woke up and it was 4 I was on my phone texting him are you up ? when I did not get an answer back .I was nudging my husband to get up and check ..he looked at me half asleep not too happy with waking him and puzzled how I was awake . Oh if he only knew how my night was. Today was the day the Army National Guard Sargent picked him up for his physical exam the last thing to do to make it in was to pass that…and he made it in. So my day was spent keeping myself as busy as possible with cell phone and home phone in hands reach. Let’s say a lot of praying inside and outside as I dodged the sun not knowing if it wanted to come out blazing or hide behind the clouds . When it was tolerable it was spent out side with my book and phones in hand and I looking up to the sky and praying he would be okay and in good shape to join. When 3:00 in the afternoon arrived I prayed even harder that no news was good news. At 4 he arrived home and my son and the Sargent got out of the vehicle and greeted me. Anxiously I waited to hear the news. The Sargent said to me well we have good news and bad I’m like oh no …okay? He said good news he passed and has been sworn in . I just gasped with joy because I knew how much he wanted this ,my son has always wanted this and it’s a good start to a college and army career .. so I said what’s the bad news ? He said well it was a very long day for one .. just waiting around for everything to process and instead of the end of June shipping out for boot camp for 6 months it’s October then back for Christmas for two weeks and then gone till April . So weekend trainings two weekends a month through the summer to stay in shape . We could work with this. So my son is thinking summer classes until boot camp is over them start up in the fall for the rest of his college so it will be college and National Guards on weekends 8 yrs well 4 college 8 National Guards and who knows maybe full time serving after ..knowing my son I may not be surprised. I just know we are so proud of him. He wants to serve so much I thank God for getting him through this day .. I think I prayed all day to get myself through.
Now it’s night time and my son is settled in bed . I would think he would be tired after getting up early and all he had to do plus made it to a part of his track practice . HIs championship meets start tomorrow under the Lights so another long day with School and meets Well time to settle myself and pray one more time with a big thank you. 🙂 good night!
Today I brought my son tux back after renting for his prom ,really do not like to rent because no matter how hard I try something always comes up and I find myself in a jam returning it on time … believe me I had every ounce of good intentions of getting the tux back on time . The prom was this passed fFriday so the guy said Saturday return it but if something comes up I will let it go till Monday .I told him ok thank you but you will get it back Saturday . I know you know what I’m going to say ..yes something came up and here was Sunday mid afternoon and it dawned on me the tux.. oh no.. my son was off at a meeting and his mind has been all over the place senioritize…so I call the place we rented from and was very nice and explained and how I totally forgot it was Mothers Day weekend yes no excuse and I wasn’t trying to make excuses and too stated that the guy said Monday could work as well . The lady who answered the phone was so rude she raised her voice and said Saturday was the return day no buts about it and I’do not care what the sales guy told you your late she stated really loud in my ear I said ok I know …I will pay the late fees and it will be there Monday she said fine and slammed the phone in my ear .. oh my I wanted to cry . So today my daughter and I rushed over because my son was in school and it’s 45 mins away or more depending on traffic so I didn’t want him rushing after school and sports . My daughter carried it in for me and there was this older guy working and saw the tux and said oh returning I said apologetically yes and how I was so sorry and how I forgot about it being Mother’s Day and things came up and I understand if his worker yelled and slammed the phone down I would pay the fees , he said what?.. she did ? We don’t raise our voices and slam phones in customers ears here he took the tux hung it up took the slip that was in it did whatever they do with them and said I’m sorry for that ,Happy Mother’s Day . My daughter and I looked at one another .. I said oh my no I was late I need to pay he said no all set you have a great day no problem . He didn’t even check to make sure it was all together ( which it was ) but still . I couldn’t thank him enough . He just smiled and said enjoy the rest of your day. I was so amazed he was so kind and I know even more there are still some nice people in this world .. I know I was in the wrong there was 40 dollars Worth of late fees I would of paid and he could of made out with. That was a welcoming surprise ..,and on that note I think I should say my nightly prayers and get some sleep it’s getting late. Didn’t realize the time Goodnight everyone🙂
it’s a rainy night actually enjoy it love rainy nights it’s a reminder that Spring is here and soon summer will be ,really nice when the windows will be able to be open at night more , love the sound of the peepers and crickets , you can here the trains whistle clearer which can be kind of an eerie sound as well as the boys ( coyotes) howling or hunting in our woods. Part of living in the country . Happy to say we are all home tonight settle in our beds . It’s a nice feeling for a change . I think Miss Abigail is happy to have my daughters bed tonight when she isn’t home Miss Abigail cannot settle so she roams the house or scratches at our bed. When my daughter went down to Their place she happily went along ahead of her 🙂 now the TV is off replaced by the humming of the fan so off to sleep soon here you can hear my sons fan as well … yeah it’s a thing my family does cannot sleep without a sound of a fan blowing. I’ve adapted to it wasn’t always my thing . Well eyes are getting heavy time for some sleep . Good night everyone in my part of the world .
This morning my son did the biking stage of the 2018 Pentathlon in our Community . Happy it was sunny but it was cold and the wind did not help . My hubby and I watched in ahh as we watched the participants amazing… all so good and I have to hand it to them a lot of energy was used up from them. We are so proud of our son he did so well his team came in 4th over all but 1st place in their age group. He’s sore but still on the go . The pics where taking after he finished tired and sore… it will be a calm night, he went to a friends to hang at there house his friend had an ACll put in on Tuesday and shockingly was at the race on crutches and a full leg brace to sit and direct runners which way to go but that was enough to tire him out and his leg was hurting and needed to be up , he was a good support team along with another friend for my son, so my son felt he owed him to go sit with him at his house this evening. They’ll go over the day in full detail I’m sure 🙂 after my hubby and I grabbed a late lunch out and now Where home getting warm. . It’s been such a great day .
Ahh so happy there is really no snow coming our way, I want the schools track to stay clear . 3rd day of track and field practice for my son. I believe he’s enjoying it. I’m happy to see him content at the moment . The evenings here and my hubby and I have finished our dinner and cleaned up the kitchen now we are just relaxing in the quietness of our house watching the evening news and it’s 6:30 here and still light out which is a plus. My daughter is still working but heading back out later with a friend., my son arrived home from practice with a couple of his buddies and have gone out can’t complain he’s been home the past three nights , that’s a record for him hahaha.. after the news I think I will settle and read the book my daughter lended me . It feels nice to be reading again. . I think we will have company though when my daughter goes out later Miss Abigail will be laying with my hubby and I ❤️
Even though it was was just one of those days during the week that your basically just doing what you do your mind is at ease you get things done easily and it’s just makes for a pleasant day 🙂 I think it helps that today is the last day of January …..not my favorite month . Plus I ran in to my favorite nephew who my son could be his mini me even though my nephew is in his 30’s him and my son resemble one another in just about every way looks their mannerisms …. and girls are attracted to them and they know it but they know what they want . Their hearts are both so big . So that made my day to see him and his lady . After that I came home and started making my homemade chicken and rice soup which happily it’s done and the house smells so good , Perfect on this cold day. . Now just waiting for everyone to come home . Once again I will remind you it really doesn’t take much to make me happy❤️
