It’s a dreary day .. snowing off and on thankfully not amounting to much. But just the dreariness doesn’t help my mood . I should be jumping for joy yelling to the world my Son will be home in a week.. so why do I feel blah instead ? Oh believe me I am excited . I can’t wait , I miss him so much . I guess it’s the fact I will not be at his graduation with my hubby and also my hubby will be away for 5 days as of tomorrow and the houses is quiet enough . Oh my if they counted on here how many times you uses one word .. I would win for using quiet so much .🙄 I know my daughter will be here it’s just I feel bad depending on her for company . I know that’s not how she is thinking. She wants to help me get his room freshen up for her brother . Plus declutter the house including her place . On her days off from work. . I guess I’m thinking to much which is making me feel anxious and not in control . I need to stop over thinking. I need to stay busy . So hate this feeling. Now if it wasn’t winter . We would have drove . If it wasn’t winter I’d feel better because it wouldn’t be dreary .. omg I know I’m thinking about things that are not able to be. Oh I am my worse enemy…. we’ll need to switch laundry over. And think about supper. Wish me luck to stop thinking so much.
It’s a cold rainy Sunday. Not complaining better then the ice and snow they first predicted. So just having a very lazy day , slept in then dragged myself to the shower and finally made it to the kitchen for my morning coffee.. at this point I think I need several to get me out of this blah feeling . My joints hurt which is always the case when it rains ..so it’s not a myth. Maybe do some things around here or not.. 🙄 need to order some gifts online then I may just Adult color or read. Hoping my son calls today . He did state on Thanksgiving he may have one more phone call left before Basic Training Graduation . I hope so .. I wrote a letter the weekend after Thanksgiving I’m thinking he may have just received it . No letters from him because he will be so busy but he did state keep the letters coming . Sadly with how it takes so long for him to get them I keep holding back to send one more out . It will be graduation by the time he gets it , if he even gets it I did send my congrats in the last letter since I will not be able to fly out to see him graduate my hubby will be there . He understands . I will stay back and with the help of my daughter in between her work schedule she will help me wash his bedding again to freshen it up . Dust his room . And help me stock up for food that he likes plus Christmas Eve and Christmas Day food. That will keep my mind busy well maybe…. I know I ll be thinking of him constantly that day with a tear in my eye one for not being there with him and second because I am so proud of him. I do miss writing to him . Love writing it felt good. Hopefully when he goes back for his next training it’s letters only instead of cellphones even though being only a text away would be nicer .I’m afraid he will get wrapped up with his friends and use his texting time on his friends….. he is only 18 . Friends are so important at that age , even though his letters he’s been so humble . Will see. Hubby’s snoozing on the couch while waiting for his team to play .. Sunday Football . My daughters with her boyfriend then work this afternoon. Late but short shift. Miss Abigail is sleeping away in our bean bag chair oh to be a cat ,she makes sleeping look so nice. Well time to do a few things so I can sit back down and color or read .
It’s Monday Veterans Day well its observed today so my hubby is off along with other State and Federal Jobs . It’s a a long weekend but quiet morning while my hubby is helping a neighbor for a bit , my daughter down in her place sleeping away and I enjoying a cup of coffee after deciding it was time to get up jump in the shower . The holiday weekend was spent quietly and cozy after Saturday’s food shopping and a ride with my hubby . The weekend kept getting colder so we spent it inside my hubby relaxing on the couch as we enjoyed watching movies and football , while I also finished reading the book I had started. I think my hubby and I also thinking a lot about our son .. being Veterans Day and him at Basic Training . I miss him … had to get that out 😥 he gets to call home today so we are so excited . They said 1300 but didn’t say their time or ours which we are a hour ahead of him so between 1:00 .. 2:00 I ll wait all day it’s okay . I want to hear his voice. I’ll start my next book I have ready to read . Just finished Nicholas Sparks newest novel . Every Breath , it was really good but so sad . I think all his books are for the most part but such a good read. Yesterday being so cold I curled up in my chair with a blanket a hot cup of tea and read . And read .. and read ..(hahaha) when I looked up from my book towards my hubby laying on the couch staring at me I laughed at his expression , he just looked at me in awe . I said what ? He said wow you have been reading for hours . I wish he would read .. he does but not a book well not very often . I can read all day or night if it’s really good. Well I guess I will grab a bit more coffee catch some news then do a few things around the house and wait for that call.
Today it felt like Fall the air was fresh crisp and cool .. the sun was out but it was just perfect after finishing things around the house and pulling myself away from the news or I would get more disgusted then I already was .. what’s going on lately in politics is a bit too much . I do not talk politics on social media sites I follow or to anyone but my family my husband , kids , the rest of the family no. So not here on my blog as well …with that said it was a beautiful day my kids off doing their own thing so it was a quiet afternoon I took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed sometime outside. . Tonight enjoying a hot cup of hot chocolate since it’s a cool night and I’m feeling cold . I enjoyed some adult coloring also while chatting with my husband since the night was as quiet as the afternoon was. Just Miss Abigail roaming around the house making noice. Now hubby is watching some football and I think iI will watch with him and my son who just happened to walk through the door and sat now .. I will take the moment when I can .good night everyone.
Rainy day . ..a calm quiet day , temps are cool, things are done around the house just supper has to be made but that’s in a bit . Enjoying some hot chocolate while talking with my daughter. My son left at 6 this morning and arrived home around 2 he has showered and is laying down now . He took a hike up on Mt Greylock an elevation of 3,491 I dislike when he does this hiking alone but he prefers it then he can go at his own pace . The day before I started on another adult coloring page. It’s coming along pretty good. After supper is made and cleaned up and the evening turns into night I think I will work on some more of the page . I guess it’s time to get supper going
Good morning enjoying my coffee while catching up on the morning news. It’s Friday with a not so busy weekend ahead ,the last two weekends have been busy but enjoyable .Birthday celebrations but you know all that goes into it … when I woke it was sunny now it’s cloudy , rain coming in this afternoon again with the humidity … I’m so hoping by tonight it clears for awhile to be able to sit out on the deck with our tiki lights and relax with my other half , haven’t been able to do this for awhile. Saturday will be a whatever kind of day .. and then Sunday if my sons ankle feels better …two days ago while running he landed wrong on it and strained it he took some days to relax it and knowing my son he will push to do the triathlon … will see . He needs to take it easy but that is not in his vocabulary 🙄 time will tell, well my visitors were back early this morning (turkeys) I believe their living in our woods. You would think we were raising them (hahaha) Miss Abigail use to love sitting in the window watching them and and making noises at them like she is talking to them but I think it’s become old being here everyday she doesn’t bother with them. Coffee is finished so time to get on with this day before I decide to just let it go around here and read (hahaha) need to finish my book I really want to know how it ends . I posted that I was reading it. On Facebook and this friend of mine said it looked good and didn’t know Stephen King had a new one out. He thanked me and said it was going to be his next read. He will probably have it and finish it before I’m done . Okay time to get off here for now 🙂
I guess it’s time to get some sleep .The house is so quiet. Except for the air conditioner humming everyone is settled in already early for a Friday summer night. … My kids have to be up and out of the house by 6 for work and National Guards , My other half is just tired from the long work week.., how things have changed .. no loud music pounding through the walls no friends laughing and jumping around. No in and out of kids coming through the door at all hours of the night. My son is growing up ,.. just happened way too fast now I have two grown kids now well I know that’s how it goes … sadly , so I think I will say my prayers and get some sleep. Then conquer early food shopping with my hubby . Get that out of the way. Well good night everyone.
