Photo Monday!

This is my Photo for  Photo Monday the picture looks a bit tattered hahaha  yes it’s the original games very happily well used . My husband and I use to play Yahtzee all the time before we had kid’s  and when they would finally settle down for the night when they where little . Now Uno we played a lot with kids they loved it .Actually my Son still enjoys it he plays it when his friends come over and their sick of being on their phones which I love ! . Friday night it was just my Son and I home which was a rare occurrence  hahaha well for about an hr or so and we played Uno it was a nice moment. this is what I treasure and hold in my heart moments like this, just spontaneous . Then over the brutally cold weekend my husband and I played Yahtzee for the first time in yrs so that was another moment and now with the big 2017 Blizzard coming our way tomorrow morning   my husband is home  and my Daughter should be maybe I can gt her to play. My Son of course will be going to friends tonight since school is cancelled already and sleepover and be snowed in with some friends ….teenagers .  I must say these games just get so neglected this day in time with all the technology that has taken over, it’s nice to be unplugged for awhile and enjoy what we grew up on . I am so happy my kids where born in the time board games where the in thing so they still can enjoy them.  One of the other board games that we enjoyed was scrabble . Need to play that some time . Well enjoy my picture and if you have a favorite game let me know send me a comment back would love to know.20170313_190303

The door open the door closes….constantly

Good thing I have many doors to my house,  many comings and goings lately and I think more to come. I think it makes the kitty Miss Abigail’s head spin. since my son got his drivers license he is constantly going somewhere well in reason …..and my car as well right now it’s fine I do not have to get out has much   in the  winter  my hip does not like the cold .So my Son does do well grabbing things if I  need him to but lately I  just go with my husband or daughter.  When summer gets here it will be a different story he will need to have his own car. He is loving how he can just go and not have to wait for a ride and my husband and I actually enjoy the break of being a taxi. Never thought we would feel this way ,at first it was a little sad I felt not as needed but now I see he just needs me in a different way moral support, we talk more it’s nice this little boy that I once knew now stands in front of me a  nice young man and now with my older daughter I have  a whole new insight a new relationship of conversations laughs with them and their friends and yes the comings and goings and  can’t forget a lot of quiet nights home with my husband also. Funny how life comes back around and so fast.

New Beginnings…

 

Good Morning!  This morning I slept in no 5:30 alarm and now just enjoying my first cup of coffee. So it begins end of a chapter  to a beginning of a new chapter for my  husband and I.  My Son got his  drivers license yesterday and lets say a bitter sweet moment for me as we got back to  our house after the driving test and  getting a few things I needed , he grabbed his school bag and said okay I am ready to go are you sure ? you don’t need the car I said I’m fine all set just be careful he smiles and responds back with I will. as I watch him get in the car and drive off to school I just stood there… yes my baby is driving where did the time go.  it will be nice not to have to go and bring him everywhere because he is a very active boy it will a bit challenging for a little bit sharing my vehicle until he finds a car or I do, so far have it covered so this morning he took the car and I will grab it after since he has a late track meet and the car doesn’t need to sit in the school parking lot all day.  so another new chapter I know every parent goes through this I have already my oldest though my daughter but I did not worry as much because she has always been calmer cautious just the total opposite of my son and he is my last so my day will have more free space in it and maybe a bit more worry for now  but the look on my Sons face when he passed was priceless it was the same look when he got his 1st little bike at 3yrs old and my heart just melted at the sight of his smile.

Weekend..

Hello everyone hope everyone is having a pleasant Sunday after noon. today the temps have dipped down to 38 from 60’s on Saturday that’s  when my daughter I spent the day taking a ride getting Starbucks a cold one and having silly conversations oh yes silly.. people would not understand 🙂 So the Starbucks drink we enjoyed  was a salted caramel brule  latte really good especially if your a caramel lover. Today I am enjoying a dark chocolate hot chocolate as my Husband and I wait for the football game to come on the TV and  enjoy a quiet day except for the sound of the wind blowing which bothers my pups so much it makes him shake and pace around  ,thank goodness he is finally settled down and is sleeping … as well as my husband and Son ..tired guys.

My Son made it to States in X Country for his team with one other teammate on the boys side  the whole girls team made it . So they where thrilled my son didn’t make it past States to go to Nationals but he was okay with that because its his first State in X Country so he gave it his all and now is tired and ready for a break . I am a proud Mom … no matter if he wins or looses he always gives it his all so now he has a  week off  then indoor track starts were he does hurdles. I am already tired for him just thinking about it. It was  a busy weekend so today is a lazy refuel Sunday  well my family is needing me a mothers job never ends  Okay everyone enjoy your Sunday as I will.

Change….could only wish..

Good Morning I do not like to start my day with negativity but this negativity has followed me for years and on Wed  was brought back to light once again so I should say this is a Thursday throwback  issue. it’s been 19 years that I have been married ..and yes like every marriage we have had are ups and downs and have always gotten through it. Most of the problem is my in-laws not only did I marry my husband I married them ……my parents have been gone for 20 yrs and let me say the ache of missing them is always there but right now the ache is more .So there is no way to put it nicely my Mother and Father in-law are judgemental , rude, selfish and so unfairly stubborn and most part hurtful. They can be nice BUT only if you go along with their way of thinking then things go smooth or smoother and to tell them you cannot talk to them and tell them  how they are being they will not talk to you or should say me for months..yes I cannot do anything right I do not live up to the mother wife THEY believe I should be and sadly they can treat my kids the same way if they don’t have a title so they can brag about them instead of brag about how good of a person they have become . My kid’s know their 20 and 15 and understand .It’s sad how they never had the chance to meet my parents who where the total opposite of my in-laws it’s so sad and unfair how that happens. I have wished for so long that things would change but after an incident on Wed I now know it never will change this is when I wish I could talk to my parents and I know they would have mine and my kid’s back. My Father didn’t care for them and he was right…I would marry them to when I married my husband.My husband knows what his parents are like but their his parents and I know they intimidate him. Such a complicated situation..any ideas anyone ???
