My 2nd page out of my new book onto my 3rd coloring away the worry, January blues. Love coloring ❤️
it’s Monday a fresh new week to get back into a routine ,a full week of school, sports meet warmer temps no big storms insight sadly my daughter is still out of work due to illness but hoping she feels some improvement when she wakes up. Laundry is going beds are made kitchen is cleaned up after breakfast . I am now sitting down catching up on the morning news and enjoying a cup of coffee ahhh so nice. I’ve started the book I posted and started a new coloring page over the weekend which kept me busy and warm
. I am going to pat myself on the back , if you read my last post I wrote how my son was out with his girlfriend and I was NOT going to text him to have him check in. or worry and I didn’t well I didn’t text. I wouldn’t say I worried but hoped he drove slow and careful on his way home. I got into the Golden Globes with my hubby and didn’t realize my son had texted me ….it wasn’t that long until I noticed but it hopefully showed him I was waiting with my phone in hand . He texted “on my way home. ” I do not know who was more surprised 🙂him for checking his phone and seeing no text from me or I seeing his text .. before I knew it he was walking in the door he talked a little bit and I tried not to do the twenty questions just how was Mary ? Did you have a good time? And after that he said goodnight and was off to bed. Now to keep this going oh am I trying….so hard when I’ve been by their side from day one through their first cut to their first everything to their first letting goesI can’t tell you what is the hardest part their first cut or letting go ….maybe letting go because it’s i that is now hurting not with them but just I because this is what I’ve known for so long .. my daughter is so different we have always been close and we are friends as well . With my son it just feels so different. I know boys let go differently then girls but this is ……different 😥 no hand book in the world could of warned me how this would feel. I’m am trying and I will keep doing this. Everyone tells me go out with friends do things with your husband I am but we are not big go to the movies we like watching them when they come out and we can cozy up at home and watch them . We have always been homebodies .. before kids we out dinking and dancing on the weekends but now that doesn’t hold an interest . We have spent nights out at relatives and enjoyed some drinks food laughs more that has been nice just need more idea s but for now it’s Home Movies going out for coffee dinner I guess we are heading in the right direction .. but it just feels different .
weekends why do they have to go by so fast. It was nice not having any set plans just whatever came up or didn’t was nice most of the weekend was pretty much spent inside keeping warm and for the most part we all where at home,my daughter is sick and has a notice to stay out of work for several days so she laid around and read and watched movies with me and slept my poor daughter winter is not her friend she gets sick so much during this time ,we both believe she should of had her tonsils out but everyone she saw said no there fine and now she gets the worst sore throats .I think this time around we may have to push it more but now she is older and risk factor is not good . We will have to talk to the doctors about this more. My son was in and out when he was out he came home earlier and then spent it in his room .life of a teenager. No work for him on saturday was scheduled for night skiing instructor but they closed due of the wind chill then today he was not schedule , now he is at his girlfriends and I’m trying to not worry and check in with him there is school tomorrow so he will be home at a decent time. It’s just where his girlfriend lives is not an easy drive . But can’t think about it. Nope ….not coloring watching The Golden Globe Awards with my hubby and my daughter . All in black tonight the actresses and actors for sexual harassment awareness . A topic I won’t get started with but yes applauding them wearing their black. Im hoping he is home soon… Okay I know don’t think about it 😞 One track mind sorry…. .
The past couple of nights has Miss Abigail pacing all over the house and being very vocal poor kitty all out of sorts . It also has myself and my daughter antsy and not Being able to sleep. My Son is on a weird sleeping schedule as well and keeping him up playing an Xbox game online with one of his buddies I think they have a challenge going on . After little nap after school and practice …..luckly no homework I believe the first quarter is about to end soon and then exams so studying will be in order soon.. This school yr is going to fly by . Even my hubby is still up past his bedtime 🙂 Yes this Full Moon is doing a job on all of us . It’s still brutally cold out and expecting a snow storm Thursday their saying a possible Northeastern on the coast hope it changes for their sakenot much our way as of right now but thT could always change. . two hr delay this morning for the schools due to the wind chill . This weather is so crazy Mother Nature is letting it snow in Florida . and their having winter storm watches ….why…… I guess she isn’t happy with us . Tomorrow I think I will start a book I bought months ago and then when that is finish I have a gift card to get more books so I can read this month away and color. That of course will be after all my errands are done house is picked up….my soapy is watched yes I’m a soap addict 🙄Days Of Our Lives! Love it. The only drama I like to get dragged into 🙂 Well the house is a bit quieter now tv’s off my hubbys is sleeping Miss Abigail for the moment is sleeping my daughter is down in her place enjoying her book her kitty should be there , eventually she will wander down the only sound is the occasional laugh from my son soon he will be off to bed as I should be. So time to settle under these cozy warm blankets and get some sleep . Good Night Everyone.
Ahhh it’s a Saturday night a very cold one at that and my house is full ..meaning we are all home plus two of my daughters friends are over . Nights like this have been becoming less by the minute usually there is always someone that is out. So I tend to cherish these moments as I hear my son playing a game online with one of his buddies laughing way or a sudden bang of movement in my daughters place as I lay here next to my sleeping hubby . Such. a Cozy feeling as I drift off to sleep and then awaken by the morning light and the hustling and bustling of my son getting ready for work and the beautiful scent of fresh brewing coffee because my hubby always gets up before me. Then my day begins.
It’s 11:45 Christmas Eve Night soon it will be Christmas. I’m a bit calmer less stress the guilt I feel or felt that I didn’t do enough which I know I did is slowly easing off .. we do my hubby and I buy things all year around so they have what they want and need but it’s not about stuff …things it’s about being with our love ones sharing good times making memories and after tonight was more proof then ever that this is what it’s about, let me explain my father in-law passed this August without warning , shocking and quick it was so shocking and so out of the blue.. so it’s been hard with the holidays and absorbing this loss, a very rowdy loud straight to the point great humor kind of guy you just do not easily let go of and my mother in-law who shy of 4months this month would have been married to him for 50 yrs has been so amazingly strong and a rock don’t get me wrong she has her days but she has been so strong and we have been by her side . Tonight we spent Christmas Eve at her house and she had her grand kids all Four of them my two and my hubby” s brothers two open a present all together and read this poem when they pulled the item out of each of their gift bag I teared up the minute I saw it and my daughter did as well my son and niece and nephew all looked amazed they each where holding a medium size hand made pillow that was made out of the material of their grandfathers flannel shirts he wore and loved so much and we saw him in so often the girls were his red plaid flannel and the boys had his green flannel color ones and it had like the buttons going up the pillow like a shirt and there was a sweet poem which said something like tonight I hope you take comfort of me with this pillow and have a good night rest with me near . It was so beautiful. My mother in-law found some one to make them she called them memory pillows . Right then there it was the proof of what this night this holiday. Is about and my mother -in law just grabbed my crying daughter and hugged her crying and said I hope it’s happy tears and my daughter said yes . My son said he felt he didn’t deserve this that he wish he had spent more time with him but we told him he did and his grandfather was at every sport birthday event so he did deserve it I think that is always a common reaction .. bu all I know it was what made this Christmas Eve the true meaning … life love.. our love ones family the one thing we should never loose sight of or take for granted because when it comes down to it Family is what is important that is what matter.and look at this it’s Christmas now , well time for some sleep .Merry Christmas ! I hope my kids and niece and nephew are sleeping well with their pillows❤️
