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. ..
Good Morning ! Enjoying my coffee a bit later slept in this morning , It’s been a long Labor Day weekend afternoons spent taking a ride checking out the leaves that have been changing already ,then late nights spent with good food, drinks , bonfires , family and a lot of laughs today will be a calmer day and once again very warm . I think I will spend some part of it getting back into my book .I couldn’t finish Sharp Objects it’s too much when just finishing I believe the finale of the mini series on TV. I’m now reading the novel Bittersweet by Miranda Beverley -Whittemore so far I am enjoying it. Much of a calmer read. The house is quiet my kids still asleep my hubby outside puttering he can never relax. But that’s fine it gives me a moment to myself and to be able to write. I do not know how he will do with this winter he cannot relax .even then.my kids always say I do not know how you two got together your such opposites. … yes we are I can’t deny that. It’s not always been easy (hahaha) but it works , I’m the one who has to push on the brakes at times . 🙄 well that’s for another day. Time to finish my coffee get a few little things done then some reading on my swing for as long as I can tolerate he heat. Have a good day everyone.
I have always been a giver a over doer always put others first. why do I ? not for recognition but just because it makes me happy and I like to give then take. but then after a yr ago I started feeling the poor me syndrome and after several occasions I didn’t do you know life gets busy or things come up you forget and let me say I did not hear the end of it and that opened my eyes .. people took advantage of this ….so I stopped doing to a point I am still am who I am that will not ever change but I now know who and when I should do for people and not to go over board because it doesn’t matter to some people . some people can do nothing and not care and get treated better and even though I did this because it’s just my way and your tired and you do it anyway but there is not at least a thank you it is upsetting. I must say Easter was nice I did for my family like I always do and kept it at that and I for once was a happier person for it. Do not get me wrong it was hard not to want to just keep doing habits are hard to break but I am happy I stuck to my decision. made for a nicer day .
