Tonight was my sons last high school football game and thier Thanksgiving. Game and would you know tonight was the night he gets an injury and it had to be his knee … he is a runner track and hurdler and I feared this when he said he wanted to play football his last season of high school . He was doing so well yeah some cuts bruises body soreness and was fine but he went down on his knee in the last quarter and was done ,sitting on the ground holding his knee while medics came to the side line to check him out. I wasn’t at the game with my chronic hip issue couldn’t walk where the field was located, too much so I stayed home and listen to it on the radio and my husband sending me texts .
I end up getting a text from my husband stating they where at the hospital to get it checked out I said should I come he said no I will update you hmmm ..I have realized my son didn’t need me any other time I would of rushed anyways to get there but something told me to listen to my husband and wait for updates within an hr he updated just sprained their wrapping it and he needs to ice it rest it elevate it and use crutches for a couple of days if it gets worse see our doctor. Thankfully no pain meds and they where on their way home . Such a strange feeling for me to sit back and wait and calm as well . Funny thing he came hobbling through the door and sat down and said mom I’m starving I see you bought pizza could you make me a plate hmm now that hasn’t changed as he’s laying his head on the table and this I tell you was also after my husband dropped him off at school to grab his car and see his team and coach who where back at his school from the bus . Now he’s in bed and sleeping so I guess maybe he needs me but just little less. I guess that’s an okay thing🙂
Hi Everyone here is my Monday Photo if you have looked at my past posts you will notice how I have been posting more of my adult coloring. And now I have posted this one .I have been working on it’s been a long couple of weeks and still hard ,a 17 yr old boy from our community that had went to School through middle school and played youth football and baseball with our kids was in a horrible car accident and has sadly passed away on Friday after excessive amount of treatment from severe brain trauma this has shaken us as community and it’s going to be a hard time for his family especially with the holidays coming our hearts are breaking for them😥. This has ..is making me want to wrap my 17 yr old in a bubble if it was that easy . but sadly we know life isn’t. So . I have found that coloring keeps my mind occupied while he’s out well for the most pare more then reading a book does because I can still think when I am reading , with coloring the pictures are so detailed you focus on the picture so yes a lot of coloring this mom is doing . So like I said here is my newest one. I guess I will color now ❤️
This my Photo for Photo Monday! This is what my Son did this past weekend , Downhill Mountain Bike Racing . Very exciting but also very dangerous as well and I was a walking worry wreck…. yes I am a mother hahaha. On Saturday was signing in getting his race number walking and then practicing riding the trail you would race down . That we did not have to stay for so I signed the permission slip and then went and did errands till my husband was home from work then we finished the rest of the errands together around the time my Son said he would be heading home an ambulance went by us then life flight flew over …..I looked at my husband and he knew what I was thinking “no it’s not him he is fine its probably not even going that way” I said okay went in the house kept busy then saw my son drive in happy to see him ,my husband joked and said oh your mom was worried and he told him what we saw and my son said they where there.. okay back to worrying again. My son was scratched up on his leg said he did go down and did claim the trails where slick and he was a bit worried. So he went in cleaned up and took it easy the rest of the night and I think it was a long sleepless night for both of us.
Sunday Race Day: we got their he was nervous but excited and I felt the same way a lot of people their music playing food cooking it was sunny for the most part of the day my daughter showed up after work and he headed up on the lift with his bike. …and we waited lets say I held my breath when his number was announced and within minutes he came flying down , he did well very well for not doing it for two yrs he didn’t come in first or even close but was safe happy and satisfied with the time. I guess since he has become older and wiser he knows he is not invincible and things happen and that is what nerved him…good thing he is older more experienced and cautious . I am we all are so proud of him. ….and now on to the next one oh yeah there is more.
Hi Everyone , it’s been a long two days and yes I like my picture shows I am tired. The stomach bug hit our house and The one that got it was my Son of all people this kid is never really sick well some minor colds but he hasn’t had a stomach bug like this since he was a very little boy and throwing up for him is not good because it doesn’t stop until many rounds and once in the ER at 4yrs old and once again where he ended up this time .
Wednesday he came home from school said he was tired after sports which isn’t unusual for him and so I made him supper he ate then at 5:30 he went into his room and my husband I figured he is doing homework so I checked he is bundled up under the the covers fast asleep in his bed. We left him he came out a few time that night so at 11 my husband and I are in bed we hear him in the bathroom I’m like oh boy that does not sound good so he comes out, we are like are you sick he says I think so three more time off and on till midnight so now I am getting concerned and nervy because I do not do good with this kind of virus so after seemed he settled. At 3 in the morning he wakes me he is mumbling I haven’t slept at all been running to the’ bathroom all night I’m in a daze from being woken up so fast.I am like what omg ! he is yelling do something do something it wont stop so I call the Dr. and he goes to ER and they put him on an IV two bags later he is out sleeping away ..then about 3hrs later they send him home well hydrated and weak poor guy slept the rest of the day and now mind you I have had about 3hrs as well as my husband who took an hour and half snooze then had to go to work .I should of taken a nap but didn’t couldn’t was so wired up and just started sanitizing everything and laundry ….well such a wrong thing by yesterday (Thurs) afternoon I just wanted to crash but you know that over tired feeling well that was hitting me as well .I have realize I am getting old and a goodnight sleep is what I need . My son is doing better and is home still weak but yes much better I think he would rather be a 100 percent but finding out that food is not is best friend at the moment but drinking is and resting. Hopefully a quiet weekend for him. So a mothers job is never done how no matter old they get yes less taking care of but still needed and the worrying is always going to be there. So now he is off to sleep after watching many movies and I may take a nap as well.
It’s a three day weekend and so far it’s been a nice calm nothing that needs to be done weekend, happy for that I think I catching the cold my Son and husband have had. On Saturday I did some decluttering around the house and some dusting and rearranging things and as I was taking off the throw blankets on my sofa I moved my sofa cushion and under it I found a dog treat I just stood there and smiled and thinking yes another sign like he was saying Hi mommy ..I know I haven’t lost my mind well not yet 🙂 to some it was just a treat that fell down in the sofa but to me it’s a sign he was was saying he was still with us in spirit and to me that is a happier thought. As the day progressed my husband and son put our new TV stand up I am in the process of changing and as my son would say updating our house you would think this was an old house no it isn’t but he is 16 and image is everything. I am hoping his head comes out of the clouds soon. ..okay the old TV stand did have to go and now I am getting a new coffee table hopefully a newer sofa . and new paint on the walls as well. yes change.
Sunday it’s a much quieter day ,My daughter at work and my son off with his friends and Miss Abigail my daughters cat getting into everything is it. still a full moon? she has been a crazy cat lately. and I am still slowly going through our house and decluttering yes its another boring day I am sure some are thinking but I am actually content .I am not a winter person. and even though the sun is shining it is still to cold for me and why spend money on something silly when I can use it for things I want in my house. I m not trying to be fancy just comfortable we built this house 10 yrs ago and its not been changed around to much and it’s time and I never felt I had it cozy enough I like the cozy feeling so I am determine to do that . Tomorrow will get out because I know my husband is inching to he needs to be constantly on the go and I am just content to write take care of my home and family and well yes enjoy my coffee runs my addiction 🙂 but honestly it does not take much to make me happy especially now being older I have come to enjoy the little things in life ….is that so bad ? Tell me I would love to know what you think Well my son is home and is hungry and mom is on duty .
Unconditional love …enduring..
strong …. tired but never shows…happy …sad ..fears
keeps going…. never let’s go … accepts never judges…
she never gives up..
love……just what a mother does
