Resolutions ..

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 .

Pleasant surprises.

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 ūüôā 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 ūüĆô

Beautiful morning..

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¬† ūüôā¬† 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 ūüôā 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 ūüôā 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 ūüôā all though this I would not mind¬† is Laundry having to be done ūüė¶¬† 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.
