The evenings are so much shorter these days as I’m not just talking about it getting darker earlier , it just used to be consumed by early suppers then getting the kids doing and finishing their homework then baths and showers and one tv show and reading time and then off to bed. Now it’s later suppers and whoever is here to eat what I make and when then earlier settling in bed to watch some shows but now replaced with catching up on them on stream lining NBC the next day because hubby has to get up so much earlier for work so earlier to bed because we are older now and mornings are not good without the proper sleep🙄 how things have changed … oh believe me this is not a rant or complaint just a sad statement to life and how much it changed in the past couple of years . I’m adjusting it’s a lot more simple and sometimes less stressful but I’m learning or should say my hubby and I are learning how to relate to our older kids now and our life with eachother again … you will be so surprised if your younger and just starting out with marriage, babies and your reading this and going what ? Believe me now that my kids have grown and we are less needed and the focus is not all on them . You come to realize how much you and your better half have changed and grown it’s such an amazing thing . I find that we are settled in our own routine and that’s okay and we have our routine as a couple as well it’s so different how we relate now ,this whole new chapter . Waiting to be discovered .
I Everyone after a busy Last Boosterday week for my senior with all the festivities the dressing up costumes School color day, pep rally float making and then the football game and a very sore son , but feeling ok even if he wasn’t he wouldn’t stop going So anyways and last but least the Homecoming dance on Saturday night . Happy all the kids had fun and stayed safe. Today was a relaxing whateverkind of day after food shopping … finished my page and started a new one to relax so it was a nice day to sit outside do some adult coloring while enjoying the sun , here is the page I finished and then the page I have been working on. Love coloring.
Laying here now in bed and remembering .. just went through old photographs of my Son when he was little trying to pick some out for his senior congratutory page in his high school yearbook . Never thought this would be so hard, so many photos I want and I have to choose from but yes it’s only a page🙂 and looking back just reminds me how fast time does go by… sad actually seems like yesterday I was just rocking him to sleep with his little head laying on my chest and always one hand holding on to my hair that hung down . I never knew why he did that but I will always remember that . Now I look at him it’s remarkable how much his appearance has change well of course it has hahaha but when he was little his hair was as white as snow and his face his longer then oval now tNothig like the photos that stared back at me some hours ago . . My daughter still has some features from when she was little so people can still tell it’s her . No one recognizes my son if they haven’t seen him in awhile it’s so unbelievable . I think I have some resemblence when I was a kid . It’s strange how it goes . So just laying here and amazed and slowly drifting off to sleep . Monday will be hear before we know it So I guess it’s time to get some sleep. Good Night …
It’s a cold night one of the coldest since Fall started . Nice and toasty under my electric blanket with my sleeping husband.. already long days early mornings for him with work this week ,.. yes I have it on 🙂 it’s one of those nights where everyone is home and settled in my daughters friend is over so thier content down in her place with Miss Abigail ,happy there not out for once and my son is already sleeping . It’s a nice change from the comings and goings half the night. My husband and I watched our favorite Thursday night TV shows love the come back of Will and Grace it’s so funny it’s such a great pick me up show . Laughter is good. So now TV is off and once again no moon so the room is dark but that is okay it’s nice it will make for a good sleeping night. Tomorrow is under the lights Football game so we will go and watch our son play. Then a busy work weekend for him and his Senior pictures taken as well . I think my hubby and I will go get some pumpkins for carving and apples for some fresh apple pie and a pumpkin spice latte stop as well that is the best part 🙂 and yes food shopping will have to be done always need that chore done not one of my favorite things to do I hope I can get some good photos up of the foliage in my part of the world , it’s now starting to look beautiful it’s just where you go so yes hopefully this weekend I will post some, well my eyes are getting heavy so time to get some sleep . Sweet dreams everyone.
Writing this with a heavy heart after the shooting in Las Vegas the world feels a bit more off kilt today adding in all the other mass shootings around the world and the weather disasters . Just all so unbelievable .. before this sad news I was going to post this for my photo because I love Winnie The Pooh quotes and thinking of my kids and what I want them to remember as they grow.
I guess we are never to old to learn . . I’m learning I need to let things go I had posted in my last post how I was worried about my daughter and her relationship she is in . We had a good talk and we are on the same page , I thought we where not this is where I am letting people work things out for themselfs ( my kids) and not to let things get to me when it’s not to my liking well or different then what I’m use to . ..my daughter is doing what she needs and wants to do at her own pace. I find I’m connecting better with my kids lately . Things baby books you get when your expecting doesn’t teach you how to be a mother to them when their older but then again I never read them. I just went by my heart and my hearts is telling me now this is right what I’m learning , ,it’s hard I find myself biting my tongue a lot lately this is going to take some time but I need to let go a bit more and let them learn to take care of things and let them fail too if that’s the case.
This is good for me too and my husband we are doing more together with just us and this we have not done much of since we had kids . It’s strange how thinks come full circle again but we are older now and what we did then we do not do now it’s so much different but I’m enjoying the difference . Change is good.
Good Morning! It’s Monday already … the weekends go by so fast . It was a spur of the moment kind of weekend. Saturday night relatives decided to have a spur of a moment cook out so my husband and I went ,my daughter at work working the later shift till 10 at night and my son was with a friend . When we left to go over at 5 I called my son told him said to him come over if he wanted but to call first because I believed it wouldn’t be too late . ..well at 7 he calls me “where are you two still there’? So cookout turned out to also sitting around a fire and enjoying some drinks 🙂 I told him yes , your home? he says”YES ” I’m like come over well he didn’t want to I told him okay there’s things for supper he could make see you in a bit so to speak , at 10:30 we arrived home he is sitting in our living room no T.V. on… one little light on and he’s on his phone he’s like “well that wasn’t a little bit ,”hmmm strange I think to myself he is always out and about with friends and says “why don’t you two go out ” well we did and he is home with nothing to do ,I think it threw him for a loop. My hubby says after.. ahh it was good for him to be the one sitting home waiting for a change . The funny thing when we finally came home he said okay I’m going to bed got up off couch and said good night . My daughter comes home shortly after says did you guys just get home? We said yes she said good for you! I told her about her brother she laughed and said good it won’t hurt him . So strange when the shoe is on the other foot 🙂
