Well another year coming to an end.. this year went by quick. I’m ready it’s whatever .. I just want to get back to the norm hubby needs to go back to work he’s getting bored .. my son flys out Thurs and I believe he is ready too . I am and have loved having him home but it’s exhausting watching his comings and goings with his friends . He needs to get back into a routine. My daughter pretty much is back to her routine, working , boyfriend , friends. Same ol but it’s tolerable . So all I hear is resolutions .. hmm I do not make any.I do not believe in it . Yes a new year a new fresh start but I will say I will just do better saving money , having more me time and stop feeling like I have to fix everything or make people happy.. need to step back . So changes is what I’m calling it. I want to start journaling and writing more, so I’m thinking I will concentrate on this a bit more as well. so we will see . I think some wine is in order soon for me .
I must say as crazy as this week has been I am finding more of a contentment with this new norm approaching .. my children now both out of high school , more in charge of themselves ,I’m finding a bit more of who I am again before kids ….yes defiantly different.. older , yes that’s a given, but more what I want to do then what I have to do . Yes of course I still need to keep the house up make meals for my other half and is it a have to no but yes I like a clean house and cooking is my thing 🙂 I’m having more time for me which is nice being with chatting with friends , writing , love my blogging friends I have a great group I love reading and commenting on . I’m reading more getting out more . Without the feeling of worrying I need to get back and take care of things . So yes this is a new journey and I need to stop looking back in which case is one of the things I do way to often and trying my hardest to change. It will come, well just noticed the time looking at midnight, started this post a bit late … was chatting with a friend earlier that took my evening up . Time for sleep . Good night everyone 🌙
The Sun was so welcoming this morning after a cloudy day the day before . I couldn’t help myself to capture a picture on the way to school and yes my son was driving. It was just so uplifting It was well due needed the suns energy on me.. I have been feeling so over whelmed lately with everything that has needed to be done, paid etc… that worrying as got the best of me which I do not like to let this happen to often. I cannot wait for things to wined down just a bit.I will take it day by day or at least try to. I know there still is the holidays to add in going to or try to take in stride ….yes… do not get me wrong love the holidays I am just having a hard time getting into them this year , much .. much harder when your kids are adults and teenagers so not the same …The magic of Santa is what I miss the most especially this one memory . when my kids where young. There Daycare use to give out these little packages of reindeer food which was oatmeal and other safe edible ingredients if squirrels ate it so Christmas eve before the kid’s would go to bed they would sprinkle it on the front yard and Santa’s Reindeer would smell it and bring Santa to the house they did know after they did this they had to go to bed and they did hahaha but it was the look their faces how they would light up as they sprinkled it well my son liked to throw it 🙂 my daughter was so dainty.. she would sprinkle it just so ..oh how miss those moments. I am happy we have those memories to look back on. I have now replaced it in which Is what we should think more of is counting our blessings , I always have but now it’s more meaningful when your kids are old enough to share this meaning with you,, happy they know what is important there also finding even though holidays are coming life is busy for them and they still have their responsibilities how life changes in one blink. Where did all those years go?….hmm a question I ask myself at least once a day 🙂 So I am trying to just walk sometimes it’s a crawl through this new journey of life but I do know somethings that have not changed is still having our schedule maybe a bit different no more writing in kid play dates to or kid parties . now writing in driving time for my son, exam fees due. Sport meets to be at.. work drop offs yeah I think it’s a bit busier in a different way, and no more little kids running around the house with their friends but my son and daughters girlfriend and boyfriend coming over loud music banging through my sons wall my son and his friends coming and going through my front door my daughter having a girls night with drinks and movies yes their 21 and her friends stay over good thing she has a furnished basement . but I must admit I like the noise and there chaos 🙂 with all this newness comes a little more quiet nights home with just my husband and then that’s when we find Some time for a ride and enjoy a coffee or grab takeout and settle in with a good movie and enjoy one another’s company that time has changed more then ever we forget how it use to be just him and I so do not forget this a very important thing to remember when it comes to this for all of you new parents. There is hope some things that do not change 🙂 all though this I would not mind is Laundry having to be done 😦 which my Son could do but mom does it better.hmmm good one on his part. lets not forget the rest of the housework ughhh …then dinners to be made . yes all the fun things. I must say I am happy today house work is done supper is ready to be made when time the comes and I actually enjoyed my coffee and news this morning I believe it was the sun yes going to hold on to that thought. and so now today is pretty much mine and my pups yes my loyal friend. so I will wait for my favorite show do some adult coloring and yes tweet love twitter… tomorrow will be another day oh yes …but today It’s a me day !!!
Good Morning! Sorry to all the Patriot Fans including my husband , So close . My heart is heavy for the people that lost their lives to the Blizzard Jonas so sad . I hope this is the last one of the season, other then that I hope everyone else had a good weekend, mine was simple just the way I like it . Saturday was spent with both of my kid’s it was so nice this does not happen very often so I took in every moment from the time we left the house to a relaxing lunch at Panera’s one of the best places to eat !!! I usually get their Broccoli and cheddar soup and mac and cheese oh my so delicious the mac and cheese is so cheesy and creamy..I wish I could make it like that, but I tried their chicken chili not bad just to spicy for my taste then off to old navy to use the kid’s gift cards from Christmas, that place is always so busy I wonder why.. you can not beat the deals my son found some dress shirts for 75% off and my daughter two sweaters for $10 you can’t beat that. then it was off to buy the necessities at Walmart ….yes I like Walmart great prices , then we finished the shopping day off yes with a latte a white chocolate with raspberry syrup at Starbucks so good. you have to try it if you haven’t then home to settle in for the night with my husband watching TV .Sunday was a laundry get ready for the week and work day for my daughter and yes the game and some coloring time for me. Now it’s Monday and a quiet morning happy the sun is shining and not brutally cold . My Husband and Son off to work and school and my daughter heading to work soon then it will be the pups and kitty keeping me company while I spend a day at home getting dinner ready for tonight and watch my Days of our lives hahaha can not miss that . I’m adapting to this stay at home mom thing with the kids older now I use it as a me time now , some days its a long day but for the most part it’s okay . Time to do a few things so hope everyone has a great Monday.
