I know …. I’ve posted already today but I’m awake still. I’m laying in bed though so that’s a good thing. It’s so cold and I wanted my bed. As I’m laying here and was trying to organize my Facebook wall and messaging my daughter off and on because she is awake as well. I keep hearing over my hubby’s snoring hahaha … okay to get serious the popping and cracking noise of our house proving all to well how cold it is. My daughter has a friend sleeping over who has to do a night shift so has to go for 1in the morning and oh is it going to be nasty going out to her car in -1 temps , I feel so bad for her. My son texted me tonight he said it was only 1 in Missouri all day and he had to be out in it. I think the cold got to him even though he should be more use to it then his army buddies that are from the south . Being he was brought up in New England. He was grumpy and yes I could tell even over text that he wrote he didn’t actually come out with it that he was grumpy I could just feel it when I read his messages . I said are you feeling cooped up ? He wrote ” oh my god yes! ” ” you can tell ?” I said oh yes I can . He is such a free spirit … even though he loves what he’s doing . Just always been that way. Love and hate that about him it’s like trying to tame a wild animal at times hahaha didn’t know how else to put it. But then on the other hand his heart and humbleness is huge. My daughter is that way too but I don’t feel I have to tame a wild animal with her 🙂 So I was making an album of his army photos on Fb and now their all on my feed and people are liking them and I’m thinking he will not be impressed 🙄 I didn’t realize if I made an album in photos so there all together it comes up in the news feed… 😩 yeah that will really impress him… not! I told my daughter and she laughed and said yeah they kept coming up as notifications on my phone that you posted. Oh well not much I can do about it now. Earlier I was watching videos and reading about Hygge I know so random but I just heard another loud pop and it reminded me of this .. a few of my friends on here and my hubby were talking about it . It’s so interesting . I love to talk more about it but my eyes are not wanting to stay open and it is late so I guess I will get under the covers a bit more and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.
It’s a Wednesday day morning already and a bright sunny one at that. After a weekend of no phone call from our son ..on Monday night around 8:00 my hubby and I decided to settle in our bedroom, watch our shows so shutting down the the lights locking up . My hubby headed to the bedroom to turn on the tv while I put some dishes that were lingering around after supper in the dishwasher ..the phone rang as I looked at the ID it showed a out of State number thinking oh a tell-a call … we get so many I was about to just let it ring but something in me told me to answer it and so with that I did my straight forward hello ready to tell whoever it was I was not interested .. when on the other line I heard a familiar voice “hi mom ” and I just melted (hahaha) I said Seth is that you he said yes and started to choke up with emotion my hubby heard me say his name and came running out . Etc etc after that it’s personal but with that said we got our first call I am so happy my gut feeling said answer . He is doing really good but misses us and home. Sadly the base he is at it’s an every two week phone call home , just so happy tho that we got the chance to talk to him. Now as I stated it’s Wed and it will be a day of things around the house except for one errand out to the post office .Then home to watch the tv shows I recorded , after staying up till 1. reading my book knowing I should of put it down earlier and got some sleep I couldn’t .. it is so good and I want to know the ending. So that took up my evening as we watched the election polls which I will not get into, I do not talk politics on line or with others . Sorry , Enjoying my late morning coffee and breakfast and Miss Abigail getting into everything like a little kid. Its a slow start to the day but that’s okay nothing to demanding to attend to but it’s time to get this day going any how. Hope everyone has a good day.
It’s been a simple day . The temperature outside was just bitterly cold ,what sun we had didn’t do to much to warm it up any. I took advantage of it and decided to stay in no running into town needed to be done and thankfully was able to renew my library books online. I did some dusting and a small load of towels easy enough . Spent the day chatting with my daughter as we went about things around the house until she had to leave for work. Yesterday I received two letters in the mail from my Son. I read them once again after my daughter had left for work and the house was quiet . In all the letters he has written he has stated several times how the simple things are what matters the most and family… it’s a funny thing what happens when your phone is taken away and you have a lot of time to think and realize what matters.. Basic training is defiantly an adjustment . I wonder if back in the day before cell phones were created if thinking or thoughts were as deep ? When people went into the service and had time on their hands before it got busy ..now we are all constantly looking at our phones it’s a wonder if we really think of anything of importance as much . It’s going on midnight and I just finish writing a letter back to my son. I must say with each letter I write my handwriting is improving ( hahaha) I’ve been noticing that. Loving this just wish the mail was a bit faster . I guess somethings do not change. Needing to start that journal still deciding on a regular journal for my thoughts or a prayer journal I keep reading about. Another thing to do … well I’m looking at the time and it midnight should call it a day and say my prayers and get some sleep . Started writing late tonight . So now another late night.which is fine .
I woke late after a not so early night. I had hope for since feeling under the weather all Sunday. I settled in bed earlier enough with my book desperate to relax under the warm blankets and read . I really want to start reading my newest book I bought with my son. I read about two chapters mind you the chapters are not very long to the next , my eyes kept closing but my mind kept wondering where my son was he had been gone from early afternoon and said he would be home for supper …well the plate sat wrapped in the oven waiting for him. Time ticked on. My daughter who came home from work was now settled down in her place with Miss Abigail. Around 9 I gave in shut the light off and laid there. A bit into laying there my phone dinged it was my son letting me know he would be home late don’t wait up … what every mother loves to hear but does the opposite. My daughter then rang my phone asking if he was home I told her she said he’s fine go to bed. So once again I settled in. As I closed my eyes I heard through the quietness of the house a barking noice then a yipping noise that turned it to a loud eerie howl . Oh the boys were back or at least one of them …thinking this boy (coyote) is living in our woods. My daughter came up and said do you hear that it’s so loud . I was shocked she could hear it. Well once again wide awake. About midnight my son texted Home in driveway go to sleep now … he knows me too well . I told him about the coyote he texted oh good will tame him. I laughed to myself .. Then he was off and I heard him walk in. Next thing I know it’s 8:30 in the morning . Rain coming down hitting the window. Can you say no let it still be night (hahaha) even though I felt a bit better I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the rain . Soon after my kids were banging around in the kitchen and the sound of coffee cups being set on the counter had me up and showered and heading for one of those cups. Ahh coffee always helps. So that was my night hoping for a earlier night tonight. afternoon was nice my daughter and I took a ride it was a perfect rainy cold day for a drive thru Starbucks for my first pumpkin spiced latte for the season …So good. Now it’s night time my sons home reading in his bedroom my daughters with her boyfriend catching up on American horror stories down in her place. I will read a bit while hubby is laying here next to me watching Monday Night football. Then I will get some sleep it’s still raining so hopefully the boys are sheltering themselves deep in our wood and staying quiet tonight. We will see.
Oh this time change is not going to be easy …. let’s see my hubby and I settled in bed around 9 and I can’t even tell you how many live PD episodes my hubby was watching as I adult colored . My daughter and her friend came home around 10:30 my son was snowboarding with his friends till closing … then I get a text that he was staying after with the ski school department he works for saying they where going to have pizza , play pool , then would be home . Well lets Just say this was around 10 and it’s 11:30 and he’s still out live PD is not what you watch over and over … I put my coloring away told my hubby to go to bed I would text him if it got close to his driving curfew 12:30 … oh lets just say I was hoping my son didn’t make me feel I had to text him I wanted him to know I trust him . So I laid there dozing off and on looking at my my bedroom window hoping above the shade would light up , when someone drives in at night it lights up the yard and my window.. hmm so it got to 12:10 no light , I closed my eyes begging don’t make me call hahaha when I open my eyes saw no light heard no door opening I grabbed my phone I lit it up to text what’s up when ahh.Saw Lights ….yes ! I quickly shut the screen to darkness and put it on my night stand and got comfortable and acted like I was settled he came in I could see him come walking down peaked in to my room I said oh did you lock up ? he said yup all set goodnight. I said goodnight with a smile on my face looked up and said thank you for getting him home safe and on time and for my patience. 🙂
Morning came and yes time change had kicked my butt hahaha and it was going on 8 ughh when I dragged myself out of bed and into the shower even though by rights it was 7 … and my son is back up on that mountain already his third home well he’s working but it’s his third home second is the gym . My hubby and I are just sitting here enjoying our coffee in a daze .. my hubby will be going to a friends this afternoon to play some cribbage with a friend a thing he does with an old friend of his twice a month I will stay back do some more adult coloring on the page I was working on last night that I’m really enjoying. Still feel a bit under the weather. .
Darkness surrounds me thoughts invade me . Eyes are tired but body is restless. Time to stop thinking time to stop wondering time to let the quietness calm me and let myself drift like the waves in the ocean but gently into a sleep of dreams ….
Better late then never my photo for today. It’s been a busy weekend as well as a busy Monday. It’s only going to get busier and crazier … well hopefully Tues I have a breather. Thursday my son will be going for his drivers license and I am a wreak LOL! I am going to be living on my phone texting him the words WHERE ARE YOU every minute….. ughh he is the baby and a boy .I did not feel this way with my daughter she is so much more mature I knew where she was , this is not something I am embracing at the moment. I am trying to because he is so excited and I am excited for him but not for what I am going to go through…. with his more found freedom. So over the weekend my daughter and I went and enjoyed a shopping and coffee day and Ive been on a budget so I was trying to stay practical and my daughter saw the adult coloring book and said you have to get this I have this one and love it and it will help you with your worries, get it you will not regret it. My daughter was right I started a page last night and I am really enjoying it it’s a lot of fun this book .I have two others one that I have just about colored all the pages in and I love them as well but this one is refreshing , really calming. I am so happy someone thought of this for adults to relieve some stress or just take your mind off things for awhile. Thank you to whoever came up with this beautiful idea and to my daughter for giving me the push to buy it.
