Good Morning! Well if you follow me you can see I like to write and a lot I post sometimes twice or more a day it’s not perfect but its a good release for me I . am a very chatty person I could talk to anyone according to my kids , yes but no I can strike up a good conversation and I love to talk but only if I feel your worthy enough …. okay that sounded a bit harsh not to be taken that way.. if my instinct feels right or you are decent to me yes then I will . I’m not up for fake people who if I know your going to stab me in the back after then forget it. Now we do not always know if that will happen but over the yrs I’ve learn ..and who likes to get hurt that way …I have become more reserved with age. I do not do drama . When I’m in my comfort zone then yes I will chat away and you will have my full attention. Last night my son had his last indoor track banquet still so unbelievable to me. 😥and I alway feel hesitant and anxious of going as well as my hubby who is much quieter then I but then when I get There I always have fun as well as my hubby but as soon as it’s over he’s heading for the door and I’m still chatting . Well I was In doubts this time of that happening . … a lot has been going on this week with my sons last yr and his friends ..all the ups and downs of the changes and being 17 which that is for another time. I knew I needed to be there so I put on my happy face and off we went.
It was such a beautiful surprise to see a lady that is a mom to one of my sons good friends that is over our house a lot. Well she has had a hard time with her health over the last couple of yrs not going to get into that , that is her story to tell . We met when our boys where in diapers at the town public pool. I was having a hard time juggling my son and getting in the pool with him she came running over and offered her help and asked do you mind if I hold your son while you get in if he will let me ? He went right to her and there was this feeling yes of gratefulness but more then that she was like this bright light her smile was amazing and I knew she was just a beautiful person in side and out. We became instant friends.Shes a very private person and with her health we do not see each other much but when we do even if it’s only 5 minutes it the best we chat and laugh away . She is the reason I started this blog because she New how I was feeling because she was as well knew how my son my baby was pulling away and growing up and how hard it was and she told me it was a good thing he’s suppose to . That I did my job he was confident to want to find his way even though it would be hard for him at times he would have bumps along the way but this was the first step ,so I knew I needed an out let so I started this blog.
The banquet when great my son sat with his team and ate and laughed and us parents all chatted as well and I had a great time with my sons friends parents the night wasn’t long enough hahahaha so much for not wanting to go in the first place. …but spending time with this lady was just what I needed . Does anyone else have that one special friend that just is a breath of fresh air and puts things in perspective and radiates just goodness of how life and people should be ? We all need that kind of person more in this chaotic world where so many people are not nice and so many things are turned upside down.
So it’s Friday night and I believe I am so sick of the sound of the air conditioner and my sinuses are as well … been a long week and my head feels a mess allergies are at an all time high so not helping . My hubby and Miss Abigail and I watched many reruns of our favorite old show and now settling in bed my hubby is slowly drifting off to sleep after along day in the sun and the kids are off with their friends my son thankfully is staying over his friends house for the night so I won’t have to worry where he is and my daughter will be home when she gets home / I don’t worry as much with her she usually is responsible . So I think I will play my game untill I get tired enough that I can fall asleep with this stuffiness in my head. Yes my addicting game bubble pop 🙂 and yes I’m still stuck on level 36 cannot get passed it day 3 of still trying too. I’m shocked I haven’t given up on the this because usually I do and find something else to play…..yes inpatient , but this time I am determined to get past this level .i will keep you informed.
It;s been a long week and its only Tues, so hate that feeling .. My Son gad a track meet against their rivalry team and someone had to loose unfortunately it was my Son’s team. The team took it really hard , I feel so bad for them. I want to say to him it’s only a game but to them it’s so much more. it’s their life who they are okay they think it is ..I think that there is to much pressures of all kinds. on kids now and I not saying we put to much pressure as parents I am talking about other kids society sports them trying to prove themselves to others , wanting to be in as I quote . If you read my last post I had wrote about the controversy over the new show based on the book 13 Reasons Why on Netflix about teenage suicide. Its such an eye opener I am on episode 9 and I am amazed how I can relate some of the things that I have seen in my kids school its so unreal. Yes I know we where all teenagers once we had good days bad days we had breakups bad friends all that but in this new world of technology I think its out of control what kids can do with it and sadly really push someone to the point of suicide Just by one press of a button on their cell phones,,.we know bullying is out of hand , kids do not care there mind are so wrapped up in material things okay sorry not all but a good amount of kids and this show/book I believe scares people because this is a real fear and people are afraid to see this .I do agree if your child has depression they should not watch this or watch with an adult because it does not in my eye glamorize suicide maybe in a teenagers so watch talk about it . I know one thing keep the communication open with your kids no matter if they push away just keep it open.
What a week it started off well ..then by Wednesday it all went down hill . My husband fell at work he works on a construction site. Thank God it wasn’t too bad bad enough luckily no broken bones ..and luck he didn’t crack his skull…He fell off a ladder back words and went down on his head he has been home the rest of the week and is still recovering from a minor concussion and whiplash so he has to rest which is hard for him he is wired to always keeping himself busy, so it has not been easy keeping him down until he starts to feel the pain . So I have been busy bringing and picking my son up from practice and giving him rides to friends houses unless his friends grab him. Then keeping up meals and the house. Then On Thursday the world lost a music icon, Prince….that shocked the world . Gone to young . My teenage years were filled with many days of my bedroom walls shaking from the sound of his music and my bedroom walls covered with posters of Prince. So sad .. another era gone .. I believe the news has done well covering his loss a lot of beautiful tributes they have been showing. He will be missed. So now the weekend is here and it will be a low key one my husband still needing to take it easy my Son home and catching up from sleepovers remember being 16 and and staying up half the night with your friends …playing music eating just good clean fun. awww the good old days nothing like them. so next week back to school and no more vacations till the end of the year, June … thank god early June since we only had two snow days to make up. Then more fires s’mores cookouts star gazing and hopefully out door drive-ins nothing like watching a movie outside and the scent of popcorn and french fries in the night air so yummy…can’t wait .
