So it’s a quiet night no friends just the Fam and we are all settled in the only sound I hear is the humming of the air conditioner and for the moment my husband snoring softly…hmm this may get a bit noiser . My son is still recovering from Saturday’s Spartan race thought he could try practice after school because he told us it felt better to keep moving then sitting is legs tighten up sitting . Well he came home and was walking like a mummy once again so I believe he over did it…. always never does anything half way all or nothing. So he ate and showered and at 7:30 was in bed for the night. My daughter has just arrived home from work so just before her coming home we heard this noise yes always noises with us…but it was like a rumble or rolling something around kind of noise so my husband said oh I believe he’s up im telling him no when our son goes to bed that’s exactly what he does. So my poor husband starts walking through the house , went down to my daughters downstairs back into check our son …nothing but still noise so he went outside comes in whips open the bedroom window says listen we waited and I heard it in the distance, it sounded like a grand finale of fireworks but where and why ? It’s a Tuesday night .. so strange my husband was just happy I heard it and he figured it out instead of thinking he was loosing his mind hahaha but anyways so strange why? … always something .
After a typical Monday day getting back to the work and school week and the lovely task of housework which is never done, you know laundry dusting weekend clutter etc .. then making supper which was stuffed peppers I must say came out pretty good. So tonight was an active one not the quietness my hubby and I have been settling into lately it was the comings and goings of my son and his friends and now they have decided to stay the night and my daughter went out with one friend but another friend asked to come here after work till my daughter came home and now she is staying over . I love when the house is full of friends it’s such a great feeling I hope there will be a lot more of this, this yr till my son goes to college . My husband is awkward about it hahahaha but not l! I’m happy my daughters friend feels comfortable to come here on thier own and my sons friends are comfortable to leave and come back t makes my house seem homey to them. That’s really all that makes me happy. 🙂it’s just these simple moments that I cherish .
Today is the first day of my Sons last season of Cross Country Meets . It’s bittersweet because he lovesThe sport but not many on the team one more joined so that helps . I wish I could be there for it and him but it’s an away one he has my car ,hubby can’t get out in time. So my heart ❤️is with him and I hope he knows this . I will be at the next meet that will be at his school. I’m so proud of him he works so hard for all this and his stamina is unbelievable. I wish more kids felt this way ….the kids these days do not want to do much or care about much it’s a scary thing . This generation is I’m sorry a bit lazy or just want do not have the motivation to commit to not just sports but jobs anything well at least where we live. That’s why my heart breaks when my son puts 100 percent into all of this and then some any ways it’s a good day for a run I hope they do well I am thinking of him and his teammates .
Laying in bed just put the Adult coloring book down for the night it was nice taking a break from thinking for a bit. Friday was a beautiful night at the fair followed by a relaxed no rush kind of weekend . Soon it will be time to think about getting some pumpkins for around the house and some scarecrows . Decorate for Fall, crazy that this time time is already upon us . Now to get my kids involved … need to carve pumpkins with them . My daughter will be on board it will be my son who will take some pushing to agree. I will get my way 🙂I will post some pics when the time comes. So I am happy to say it’s so nice to be reunited with my close friend somewhere along the line we let life stray us away from one another and for a time I was afraid we wouldn’t find our way back to one another … there was nothing we couldn’t telll each other and our kids grew up together especially our two older ones my daughter and her daughter best of friends thankfully they have kept in touch as much as possible being so. busy but have done a better job at that then thier mothers . I’m so happy we have teconnected it’s so comforting and I have missed our talks so much. back in the day we could talk a whole day on the phone about just nothing hahaha it was nice now it’sa bit more busier but I treasure our moments to chat even if it’s a text here and there. Life sure can change the direction of things it hopefully we will not let all these changes get in the way off our friendship . Seems like more then ever we need this friendship to get through them.Change has been such a big part of our world for so long things felt like they stayed the same unless we just didn’t see it … I don’t know how all of a sudden it’s just smacked us in the face and it’s our. new norm . New journey whatever we want to call it maybe just life… yes that’s it . Well me eyes are getting heavy I guess it’s time for some sleep . Goodnight Everyone.
Good Morning soon I hope we can get back in to a some what routine with having Monday off and a short week and now the talk of the country fair coming this weekend it’s just one more thing to keep my son running and not getting serious about this school yr. I know Senior yr need to have fun but hmm need some seriousness as well in the mix. I must say my daughters kitty Miss Abigail is so wise if the back outside light is on she will sit in front of the door like okay when are they coming home she know if that light is on not everyone is home so she will not settle . When it’s off you will find her sleeping happy on the couch if my daughter has not gone downstairs to her place for the night. See animals like routine too🙂
It’s late at night lying in bed and my thoughts feel all scattered and nothing feels normal ..I think this will be mine and my families feeling for awhile as well. ..everything as changed so fast it’s unbelievable so. I guess the feeling of normalcy is not happening is where it’s at for the time being one think that hasn’t change is the kids are still out and I will wait to fall asleep unless sleep overcomes me …haven’t had much of a good nights sleep ‘this past week. So I will let the humming from the fan get me to sleep .
Another evening settling in bed where the air conditioner feels the best yes another extremely hot day and night so TV it is and after I believe I will read my book and wait for my son to arrive home from work hmm this will be interesting will he be in a good mood or bad ..you never know with teenagers. I am proud of myself , last night my son went out with friends and gf for a bite to eat, about an hr or so later he texted me now at the movies so I held my breath and typed okay have fun remember curfew . Ok this was hard because I held back the 20 questions he calls being drilled well I didn’t and let me tell you I fell asleep for once before he arrived home of course my ringer volume was on the highest incase he called or texted , I do not think my hubby was thrilled when my twitter or Facebook notifications went off throughout the night ….whoops 🙂 of course guess who it didn’t wake up ? ME! I did wake up randomly at 3 and saw that the outdoor light was off so at least he was home hahaha
Morning came and I was enjoying my morning cup of coffee my son woke looked at me with wonder I had to laugh inside a bit because I think he was in shock oh I patted myself on the back so to speak for holding back . Oh I’m trying and trying hard to trust and let give a bit of this chain called over protected mother . I will keep you posted how well I can keep this up .
