Credits to Pexels photo :Since my son graduated from high school in June , it’s been a crazy time . Summer spent with him doing his thing ,running with friends .. working .. but there was more bonfires and family parties since he would be heading off to Basic training in the fall. The memories of high school already fading . And the new changes starting with now both kids adults and living their life. I started to settle in with the quietness , less of my sons friends being around less of him being around as well as my daughter. More time spent with my hubby , more weekends spent taking a drive getting coffee , watching movies with takeouts with him or quiet moments while he slept on the couch and I actually enjoying a book. . Redoing certain parts of our home repainting .. changing the decor . It was time. So all good with this change . Then yesterday as I drove through town getting my errands done I noticed no one at the school .I need to go by to get to the Post Office, some kids walking through town , then it dawned on me …February vacation even though I have read blog post with the talk of vacation it just didn’t phase me .
First February vacation childless! and just another week for me. Loved Feb Vacation ..kids having sleepovers making sure there was a ton of food (snacks ) in the house, movies the kids would have piled up to watch ,blankets and pillows all laid out on our living room floor in front of the Tv , the Xbox out ready to hookup to the tv , board games , ready, yeah for us it pretty much was staying home and doing things here late nights. oh there was days sledding and even nighttime sledding with the yard lit up ..till they were cold and soaked so hot chocolate for everyone. Then settling in the living room and as my hubby and I laid in bed the sounds of giggling from the girls jumping and laughing from the boys till silents took over ..with them finally falling asleep .It’s a bittersweet thought as I was laying in bed thinking about it ..especially with the house being so quiet and I in bed earlier then midnight if kids were here. This is the moments when life slaps you in the face and you realize how far you come and how much time as gone by… kind of a awakening how fast life really fly’s by.. I miss them but life has to move on keep moving forward.and I guess that’s why the memories we make are so important. So make a lot of them . Enjoy the time …even if there are times the kids have you wanting to scream 🙂 oh I remember those days and can actually laugh because even now with my son being 18 and listening to what his plans are when he gets home in a couple of weeks makes me feel that the screaming , rolling of my eyes time are not over just yet.. the good thing I can walk away if need be and let him figure it out .. hopefully 🙄lol!
Hi Everyone it’s Monday night this day went by as fast as the weekend. It was a nice morning sitting at our kitchen table enjoying my coffee with both my kids . Chatting about whatever came up. It was a nice moment then my son left for school and my daughter and I went about the house cleaning what needed to be attend too. Then we got ready to go to the garage to see about some tires for her car and after she treated me to a coffee . We sat and chatted for awhile in a place some people may find uncomfortable , unusual , we have always found it peaceful quiet most defiantly quiet unless it’s a windy day and you can hear the wind blowing the trees overhead or if it’s warm and the car windows are down you feel the slight breeze touch your face gently or feel the warmth of the sun with the beautiful sky above . Okay I will say where it is the cemetery .. yes I said the cemetery there’s no one to judge you , no traffic .. and our love ones are there so we go there and check on things but stay and chat ,laugh which I think our love ones would not have a problem with. . Like I said no one to judge you there. Yes there are other places we have but this is just one of them and where we went today. It’s peaceful . Do you have an unusual place you find peaceful?
Miss Abigail over the weekend was being my shadow following me all over the house and then she found herself on my lap while I was coloring .all this was just so strange because she is not a cat that his very affectionate she loves to be spoken to but cuddly no… so this was a surprise.when she did this .
Let us in this Halloween night think of the people that have lost their life just doing an everyday thing riding their bikes and enjoying life and then this senseless act happened … just so sad to bare ..When will all this hate just stop and how many more will be taken by this evilness … let us take a moment be fore we settle in for the night and think about the victims and their families. New York we are thinking of you .❤️
It’s a quiet Tuesday night at 8::41pm and my better half and I oh can’t forget Miss Abigail are settled in bed with the air-conditioner blasting and watching Americas got talent nice place to be at the moment . Yes we are proud homebodies getting use to it , yes sometimes it’s too quiet but it happens. and I need to embrace this new chaphter ,life is forever a change of moments and I know my better half and I have done our job ..but where not done yet we just have more layed back days .My son is going into his senior yr of Highschool and it will get a bit busier for a bit with his cross country and track meets and preparation for graduation . So right now homebodies is just fine.
This is so true, sometimes this is all you need. it’s been a rainy foggy Tuesday November day .It’s all good we need this rain so much and I am sure our well is happy as well…hahaha okay that was good wording 🙂 but very true. A strange day it’s been usually rainy days drag on this day flew by ,happy to say dinner is all set thanks to my daughter who needed it to be so she could eat before her late work shift. Now just waiting for my son to come home from Track practice and then the rest of us will eat …yes I’m sure for some this is all so boring what I write about but I did warn everyone my blog would be about my family life. yes…yawn.. sigh … sorry. I am so thankful for all you wonderful people who follow me I enjoy your blogs as well. Over and over I thought about should I do the November what I’m thankful for but there are days I am just not able to get on. I am thinking when December starts I may do a count my blessing moment when I am on or at least find two seconds at night to write it. so bare with me. 🙂 okay my son should be here soon and I am ready for an early dinner myself . Have a good night everyone.
