it’s unbelievable how it’s the weekend already , one more day and spring vacation Is over. My son did what I thought, if you read my recent posts … all vacation he was home every night and then after his Friday track meet he went out with friends and midnight came and I was like oh good he’s home before driving curfew ..then in walked my daughter hmm okay my oldest home before my youngest.. of course happy she was home safe but now where was my son, So I texted him please check in he replied back we are all together at a friends house I will be home . Okay well hmm when I thought . My daughter came up from her place and asked where is he did he check in ? told her yes . So we went in to the living room now both wide awake . As my hubby was sleeping away .. 12:40 hit and no son so I texted are you really at a friends ? He sends back a photo of them all sitting at his friends house that looked familiar and they where sitting around a board game so I told him just stay over it’s late .
My daughter and I stayed chatting in the dark yawning in between sentences 🙂 but not wanting to stop because we where enjoying the moment to chat , it’s been awhile since we stayed up at all hours of the night chatting ..summer is coming this is when we seem to stay up and have these chats . The best moments. It hit a little after 2 and we both agreed it was time to get some sleep.
7:00 in the morning came quick the room was bright from the sun shinning in …tried to go back to sleep for a bit but my hubby and I gave up so we got up made some coffee and breakfast , showered and was out the door at 10 for food shopping . My son came home early morning and already was ready to leave for a run when we walked in the door . After he came back my son and I went and cleaned the car and took a ride and chatted it was all his idea so that was another moment that I have missed . I must say it was a nice. Simple weekend with moments that where as simple but lasting cherish moments . Having some time with both of my kids that are so hard to get now that their older I must say is priceless .
the fan is humming it’s the only sound breaking through the quietness in the house tonight my hubby and his fan… the bedroom is darker then usual no light from the moon ,clouds moving in to bring some rain. My daughter is out with a friend and my son is in bed settling his mind down with a hot cup of night time tea . Hubby is fast asleep and I am not 🙂 always… I was just reflecting on the little things I guess when my phone went off a minute ago because my daughter texted me a heart because earlier before she left work she told me she was going to be a bit later she sent me a heart so I sent one back but I guess she was just seeing it and even though she is out with her friend she sent me one back still ❤️ so it got me thinking of how her and I had this special goodnight saying she was the one who thought of it ,it was long and she would say it first then I would repeat it back with her name and it went on for yrs and I always wondered when she would grow out of it . Well it took a class trip in Elementary school that she went on for a week . She was worried she wouldn’t be able to say it so I told her when your all settled in and your ready to fall asleep if you think about it say it to your self your part and when I go to bed I will say my part ….. she. Liked that idea , honestly I do not know if she ever said it to herself that whole week . I never asked because when she came home she never ask to say it just said good night … hmm funny what you can remember and still can tug at your heart… my son was more simple it was ,have sweet dreams then a hug .. hmm how I miss all those moments ..at the time it was just second nature what we did . Now its missing memories .. oh the simple things we can take for granted but then when time passed it’s really becomes a big thing and means everything. So tonight when I say my prayers as I drift off to sleep tonight I will make sure to add a thank you to god for all these simple blessings I believe I have thanked him for all these blessing but I think I need to thank him again especially about the little things . ❤️
As you see the sky’s cleared the sun came out but the wind came with it. It’s night now and the winds are raging havoc on the trees .My hubby does not like thunderstorms and winds ..high winds, tonight I actually do not it’s wild out there. Trying to settle in bed it was a quiet day did what needed to be done then relaxed started feeling under the weather with so much going around I’m not surprised Plus the rain was bothering my hip I feel blah yes hahaha I do not know how else to subscribe it . So watching tv in bed with my hubby. My son is as now gone to bed , my daughter is out with her boyfriend and probably not happy with me but that is okay…yes she is 23 but if you live under our roof and do not pay rent I have a say to state my opinions about certain things that I know she will regret . I know that’s her problem being 22 Shes an adult this parenting thing is so frusturating thinking it’s time to charge some rent … Honestly I do not want to have to be right and it’s not about her needing me because it’s not ,it’s about her finding a foundation ..growing up getting it together and I getting some sleep and not worrying if she’s home yet, or having to pick the pieces up when she falls apart . I just feel so tired of worrying about everything and it gets me no where. I feel I should be able to be happy I’ve done my job .. Im starting to get use to the idea my youngest is graduating and will be heading to college and I want my daughter to have the confidence the ability to grow like her brother is yes they are such opposites but I think they could learn something from one another …well the wind is not calming down it’s actually worse and so I think I will try to cozy up under the covers and try to sleep so I do not hear the wind and I don’t think myself to an all nighter .. Goodnight Everyone.🙂
It’s night time .. hubby’s sleeping sons sleeping , my daughter and Miss Abigail are settled down in their place. I’m awake at the moment . Was strolling through my blog followers reading your posts and enjoying them . I like doing this at night when it’s quiet and the TV is off so I can focus my full attention on them . It’s hard when my hubby is awake and has a show on and he’s saying oh look at that or did you see that ? Yeah he means well. But it’s hard to concentrate . I really need to get him to read a book but then you can’t get someone to do something they do not like . He has never been a reader well the local newspaper yes .
My world is reading , writing and yes my shows and news. But at night is more peaceful to write with the soft sound of the fan humming or the distant whistle of the trains going by , some nights when the windows are open you can hear an owl , you wouldn’t think the sound is creepy but it is 🙂 I love nights it’s my comfort zone .. well I read my posts and time for some sleep , let the humming of the fan drift me off to sleep.
Oh how I love the laughter! I believe there is 6 teenagers crammed in my sons room ones a girl but all good her brothers here too her brother is my sons good track buddy who is now in his 2nd yr of college and his sister is graduating with my son. they all showed up to ransack my kitchen making food and to hang out . Ahh love nights like this as long and little it lasts I’ll take it. Basically when the food runs out 🙂 my hubby and I are in the living room watching our shows . I know as much as my son was tired and wanted to rest for his race tomorrow I think he is happy that their all here . We are too 🙂 it’s a nice Friday night.
Yes it’s Friday …same ol for me the usual laundry dishes prep for supper and yes a quiet house for the moment. I am only happy about it because it gives my son two days away from school . It’s been a long horrible week in the eyes of a 17 year old and okay his parents as well having to see is sadness and feel is wrath…not fun, Girls …..What I hear is only through certain resources so I do not know the whole story but knowing this girl who has been off and on in his life for 4 yrs and played games I cant even imagine when I was 17 is just shocking ,then his best friend breaking the bro rule we all know what that is …well once again in my day there was one you know don’t date your best friends ex .. I would not want to be a teen in this day in age, so its been a long week my resource tells me that their not sure if their dating or if so if my son knows ..well live with him and you may get the idea he knows banging doors and for him taking a lot of runs , yes he is in training Spring track and field starts Monday. …but he is doing a lot more running which is always been amazing release for him.
Thankfully being Friday he woke up and actually talked with my daughter and I while eating breakfast before school. I’m just afraid it will change by the time hes home this afternoon after school . Ready for him to graduate and see how different life is and he will not have to see her. sadly we still have to get through a prom which he said he didn’t want to go to which is fine with me . His friends are trying to set him up with girls to go with ,will see. I know there is worse things in life but when your 17 its the worse thing in life sadly. yes we have all been there but its so hard when you become a parent and you feel their pain. being a parent is not easy and really do believe in this day in age its a lot harder.well need to make a late lunch have a great day everyone. I’m hoping for one.
when it’s a Monday evening a storm is coming in your waiting for that School cancellation call and your feeling like a light supper .. your daughters boyfriend shows up and is sitting at the table with you and your daughter realizes as we are all chatting away what where eating… grilled cheese, smiley fries and chocolate milk and bursts into laughter as we follow suit knowing why 😂 we are eating a kids meal when you just want chocolate milk and smiley fries … why not hahahah and your daughters boyfriend is laughing with us . It’s one of those nights ,Then my son comes in with his friends and his friends are talking away and when that never happens because their so non talkative with parents haha been a memorable evening around the kitchen table . One more memory to hold in my heart .
It’s quiet now just hubby and I in the living room watching our show The Voice! My hubby is happy no work for him tomorrow they told him not to show because of the storm. So now we wait and see what the kids are doing school …work don’t know but I guess I will finish the smiley fries🙂hahaha smiley fries and chocolate milk kind of day .
