Sorry no Monday Photo just realized it was Monday …these three day weekends it was Memorial Day in my part of the world. So it threw me with the week starting already …it was a quiet one this yr no barbeque with the rain that we had off and on but was able to get to the cemetery to put flowers at my parents stone and to enjoy the long weekend with my husband and daughter and a little bit with my son….. but that part is for another time.. My husband cleared out our basement from all its clutter and we have started getting our summer things out next weekend we will fix our fire pit which had a rough winter ..so we can enjoy some bonfires and tasty smores under the stars..Oh and some wine. Well getting late going to go settle have a goodnight everyone.
This is my Photo for Photo Monday the picture looks a bit tattered hahaha yes it’s the original games very happily well used . My husband and I use to play Yahtzee all the time before we had kid’s and when they would finally settle down for the night when they where little . Now Uno we played a lot with kids they loved it .Actually my Son still enjoys it he plays it when his friends come over and their sick of being on their phones which I love ! . Friday night it was just my Son and I home which was a rare occurrence hahaha well for about an hr or so and we played Uno it was a nice moment. this is what I treasure and hold in my heart moments like this, just spontaneous . Then over the brutally cold weekend my husband and I played Yahtzee for the first time in yrs so that was another moment and now with the big 2017 Blizzard coming our way tomorrow morning my husband is home and my Daughter should be maybe I can gt her to play. My Son of course will be going to friends tonight since school is cancelled already and sleepover and be snowed in with some friends ….teenagers . I must say these games just get so neglected this day in time with all the technology that has taken over, it’s nice to be unplugged for awhile and enjoy what we grew up on . I am so happy my kids where born in the time board games where the in thing so they still can enjoy them. One of the other board games that we enjoyed was scrabble . Need to play that some time . Well enjoy my picture and if you have a favorite game let me know send me a comment back would love to know.
Finally back on here..after a week of total chaos and hopefully now some normalcy . In the past 5months I have felt this sense of peacefulness contentment. I finally threw caution to the wind and said I need to let go of trying to be a perfect mother and let them grow with guidence ..my Son is independent loves being with his friends playing his sport and he knows his priorities and when he sways from that path I pull him in and my Daughter she is an adult and her and I are in a good place she has here friends making new ones and her work . My husband and I are learning to be just us again before kids and I think I am handling it better then him. he is so use to us all constantly together or around lets say he hates change so the kids doing their own thing and I more into things I enjoy doing again is throwing him …I thought it would be harder for me but I am more open minded and I do not have parents telling me like he has how things should be …ughh and after my last blog if you read he got hurt at work thank god he is fine and doing a lot better and back to work . His parents thinking I am not doing enough getting back in our business my aurora of my peacefulness has vanished and been place with self doubt angry and I thought I got past this years ago. So now I am trying to get back to this peacefulness and contentment and not listening to them ….not very easy . It’s hard when people judge you just because you do not follow their ways or agree. I am thankful for this week being back to normal my daughter and I went out to a nice relaxing lunch at our favorite place, Panera Bread the best . and then we enjoyed a s’mores frappuccino from Starbucks so delicious we figured we had a light lunch we would enjoy this. Then we headed to my son ‘s school to watch his meet such a nice ending to the day. oh and yes they won! my son came in 2nd place in the hurdles and 2nd in 2nd race. So proud of him.
