Why do I write? I believe it’s like a runner who loves to run it’s a need a drive . It’s something that your body craves when it discovers it just like how someones mind craves to write words down on paper that the mind wants to express,. and likes the feeling of freedom it gives them . Runners run to also relieve stress and clears their mind, same as it does for a writer . Now the question is WHY do I write? well all that I have stated but it’s more then that I have been writing since I was a teenager I can’t count the amount of Journals I have had and then the endless amount of poems I’ve written thoughts that are in my head. When your a teenager my favorite place to take a notebook and pen and write was an old abandon covered bridge, listening to the walls of the old wood creak as the wind would blow through those warn down walls and the beautiful sound of the the stream was a perfect place. I love the satisfaction of it .After I started a family I got busy with them and writing went to the side a bit. Off and on if I had a moment I would write but not as much as I wanted . I have chronic hip issues and I cannot run to relieve my stress so writing helps a lot and now with my kids growing up my daughter an adult now and my son a teenager and another yr to graduate High school I have the time now and do I need this more then ever.
I started this blog about a yr ago and it’s about my life with my family everyday life going on’s the stresses of having kids teenagers writing about my other interests .To some who read this will probably get board and just pass by it and to some may like it for them thank you. believe me I am not writing this blog for a ton of views yes it would be nice it feels good when I see the likes but my simple little issues are not for everyone and I know that, but at times it does hurt when I do not get a like and I doubt myself and I question everything I wrote…yes my grammar is not up to date. the writing structure needs to be worked on but sadly I just get on here and just write what come out of my thoughts and really do not thing about it. but I do know I love all my followers and appreciate them and me and read my post. I try to as well. So once again a big THANK YOU!
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.
It’s been a brutally cold Saturday so my husband and I where fine to stay home today and keep warm . We decided since we where home and the kids where off doing their things we would watch a movie so we thought humor drama sad romance hmm…well we decided on humor would be nice to laugh. The movie we chose was Sausage Party …Oh boy hmmm well what a pick hahaha okay we really did not know what we were in for .let’s say maybe animated but so not for kids well under 16.it was so nasty I can’t even begin to describe how nasty ..and we will never look at food the same for awhile….Oh it was not what I was expecting okay it was funny but literally just bad .So my Son did warn us not to one day when my daughter said watch it …well she came home from work and saw that we where watching it and went into hysterics and she just couldn’t believe the looks on our faces hahaha I think she liked seeing us look awkward .So that was our night and I am still trying to get it out of my head, I hope I do not dream about singing food tonight yeah you ha e to watch it to understand or not. .well time to call it a night
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.
A rainy snowy cold day again school was cancelled , but thankfully just in case it was not going to be my son slept over a friends so we wouldn’t have to worry about getting out of our driveway …..One of the downfalls of country living for the most part our driveways are basically a road and unfortunately we have a slight hill that my car loves so much. …not 🙂 so it was a quiet night with my son not home with his music playing as loud a as he can get it. I missed him but was happy he was safe and we wouldn’t have to deal with this weather. Now just waiting for him to get home….thankfully my Daughter had the day off so we stayed up a bit later last night and enjoyed some shows my husband went to bed … so today was quiet day with my daughter doing things in her basement and so I did my things around the house and as I was I saw the most beautiful Cardinal at my feeder it was so red. It was even better then seeing the sun at the moment . It really brighten this day up even if it was only for a moment. I love when even on a dark day there is something that can brighten it up and make you smile.
So this a bit late posting but it’s just been one of those day, .it’s hard getting back into the swing of things after school vacations because I take advantage of having less of a routine and late nights and late mornings. but we all need to do that time to time.. okay so here is my Photo Monday it’s a bit silly but there is a lot of emotions that comes with this photo . One it’s my oldest my beautiful daughter and I using her snap chat this is one of the filters becoming a deer 🙂 the second emotion that comes to me is love because it was one of her days from work and she spent the day with me we enjoyed a ice light lunch out and then had a delicious Starbucks Latte then headed home and took silly innocent pictures I think the other ones we took we almost had ourselves on the floor laughing so hard . I am so happy I have such a great bond with her My son and have a great bond also but it’s on a total different level and he is 16 so goofing with mom is strange I quote him 🙂 I hope you like it and I hope you do silly things with your kids once in awhile I recommend it you will enjoy it so much and the memories you will be making is the greatest gift.
So today we had one of our 1st biggest snow storms of this season. I was so happy my daughter already had the day off from work so no worries for her or me. My teenage Son has been constantly been in and out our door since Christmas Vacation started which that has been 7 days now so I figured okay here is a big storm coming he will stay home, well lets see that did not happened ….he is snowboarding with his friends at our local ski resort. Oh believe me I told him no or will see, well he named every kid that would be there and their parents where fine with it .So now I will look like the bad parent well usually that does not bother me …..but his big plus was I have a ride to and home so you don’t have to go out. Yes a nice thing but will I worry yes will I be checking social media that there are no accidents yes..will I be jumping every time my phone rings yes . I’m telling you when I signed up for this parenting thing worry seemed like the last thing on my mind…hmm how did that happen? I was to busy thinking of the cute outfits the fun things to do play dates but worry NO ..sadly here it is worry I think he loves seeing my hair turn grey everyday. My daughter didn’t put me through half of this worry and being 21 and living at home in the furnished basement she calls me texts me if she is going to be late or not coming straight home. I tell her I appreciate this but she doesn’t have to always check in but she says but “Mom I don’t want you to worry. now if my son would or could do that ahhh I would be so happy. Now I sit it’s 7:30 and I told him you have them bring you straight home when this ends at 9 we will see I know at 9 my panic will kick in . the life of parenting .
