Good morning!

  • Woke to a cloudy cool morning as predicted . Took my time getting up and jumping into the shower , even though I slept a bit better last night . It was nice just being lazy and not needing to be anywhere this morning, .. today. So now enjoying my coffee and the tv is on I should just shut it off since it’s a special report … politics…. waa waa waa is the best I can describe listening to them talk as I write this. what the adults sound like if you ever watched the Charlie Brown specials πŸ˜‚ well that’s all I’m hearing from the tv . There much better I muted it . I know I should of just turned the tv off . Anyways enjoying my coffee then I will get some things done around here. I’m shocked I didn’t post on Wed .. I guess just one of those days .. the day got ahead of me. Took advantage of the warm sunny day and sat out on the deck for a bit until it got too hot . The sun beats down on my front deck in the afternoon only escape was going inside since are back deck doesn’t have any lawn chairs out yet . I did run into town to the post office so not all was a loss of a day . Last night I told myself I would get off my devices and read my book . I want to finish this book I started weeks ago . I usually can finish a book within several days to a week. So I recorded Seal Team and then my hubby and I as with my son shut the lights off around the house and my son headed to his room as Miss Abigail waited to go downstairs which now she is in a habit to around 8 with my daughter but who wasn’t home my hubby walked her down and said goodnight to her and he came back up and shut the door . If she is upstairs restless she will claw our new / used leather couch . Let’s just say she is defiantly spoiled . My daughter laughs when she hears how her dad brings her cat down to their place and say goodnight to her when she isn’t home. Speaking of her .. she must of just ran to her hiding place when my sons friend showed up. she was sitting here next to me . Now the house is quiet my son with his friend , hubby and daughter working I guess a bit more coffee won’t hurt . Before I start this day . Anyway we settled in bed last night my hubby slept and I read until my eyes got heavy . I think I will read some more once I get thing done around here . Since my hubby and I will be watching Seal Team tonight. My son found a part time job that could lead to whatever hours if he wants to at a local restaurant/ pub . Until he finds something else . He will work Thurs through Sunday some weeks Wed thru Sun 3to 9 so tonight is his first night and I know my daughter will be with her boyfriend on his last night off since he works the weekend this week . So just my hubby and I . Oh and Miss Abigail. So a laxed day . I’m think it’s tine now to get some things around here done. πŸ™‚

    Windy night…

    Laying in bed trying to read . But the wind is roaring which is an understatement .. it’s reeking havoc! It’s a bit unsettling. So trying to focus on my book is a bit hard. My hubby is lucky he’s snoring away and not hearing it or he would be going from one window to another like a dog .. hahaha.. My son who settled in a bit earlier then us , texted me from his room asking if I was still up and if I was hearing the wind. He couldn’t believe how loud it was. He said he wished he was sleeping so he wouldn’t have to listen to it. We’ve been texting back and forth trying to take our minds off of it . But it’s an endless roar . It’s like a force that doesn’t want to be reckon with….. and it’s won one battle I put my book down on my bedside table and shut the light off . And went under my covers a bit more . I’m sure no animals are running around tonight , their probably tucked themselves down deep in our woods waiting for it to pass like myself. My son said goodnight so I believe he is hoping to sleep and not have to πŸ˜‚listen to it anymore . I’m getting there myself. My daughter is with her boyfriend I hope they drive safe , so Miss Abigail is downstairs in their place . My daughter said she would be fine she would settle on her bed and sleep. Oh my I think since I turned the light off the wind has gotten louder.. I can take a thunderstorm much better then wind. Our trees are being thrashed around out there and the house is making strange noises when it blows around along the house. Okay I think I’m going to cozy up a bit more under the blankets and try to sleep. πŸ˜•

    Oh the signs..

    Well sitting down at noon drinking my first cup of coffee and listening to all the ridiculous news .. yes ridiculous . What is wrong with society ? Anyways not what I really want to talk about.. what would we gain if we did… the house is quiet as I enjoy my coffee but the signs of a full house is everywhere. My sons hats two to be exact hanging off the kitchen chairs a sure sign of my son being back. My daughters coat hanging on the other chair that’s a new one. The kitchen sink full with dishes ..when I know that it was empty when I went to bed. Oh a big one an empty roll of toilet paper still in place on toilet holder.. yes one of my pet peeves πŸ™„ BUT would I change this for the world? No! Okay maybe a bit (hahaha) I cleaned the kitchen .. now until round two.. soon very soon my son will be back from the gym and ready for lunch and that he will clean up . Dishes will find their way into the dishwasher with his own hands. it will be supper prep soon as well . oh where did this day go! Oh I know … I guess laying in bed all morning and then enjoying a warm shower may have cause this.. after thinking I would get to bed earlier . I read until after midnight again and still haven’t finished the book. Then trying to sleep after was a bit hard . I kept trying to figure the ending of it. It’s a crazy cycle I’m on . This time change has thrown me for a loop. Plus the bit of Spring fever does not help. Oh the days of summer vacation when for just a season the world felt like it stopped because the kids were on vacation and we had the days of summer to get off the routine of busy morning school schedules, sport practices, just lazy days and no place to be unless we wanted to be. Now it feels as I’m the only one who is staying in place and I’m on a vacation if you want to call it that . Since being on disability. I’m home more then anyone. yes I do the bare minimum of things in the house some days are better then others ,if I do too much or in repetition you see what happens when I wrote about my sciatic pain . It’s a juggling act of what I can put my energy towards and to keep my muscles active. I think that’s why I am so happy I was able to do all the things with my kids when they were growing up and my body was able. And now their adults and do not need me to do anything for them it’s funny now they do for me which at times is hard to bare … I guess call it pride. I have learned what is important. It’s the time spent the laughter . Even if it’s in moments .. minutes, seconds . It’s just hard at times when everyone is busy with work , friends , life and I just sit here and watch. I’m always watching . (It’s hard especially when I can see my family running themselves ragged and my kids making choices that are not good but know I can’t tell them what to do .)but some days it’s not . See that’s what I do . I go back and forth and at times when everything is done and fine and I spend time.. hour hours reading , blogging which has been the best thing I’ve discovered . πŸ™‚ or I stay up late reading and sleep in because I do not need to do the 6:00 wake up time .I feel this guilt. It’s probably silly .. my daughter told me it was wrong to feel this way . I’ve told her how I feel . She said I’ve done my job . To relax and enjoy what I’m doing. I guess I’m opening up on here because I feel when I write it’s the same ol … but that’s just how it is especially in the winters everything I see from my house my front deck . πŸ™„ so I thank all of you who follow my blog and read my posts especially my faithful readers I call friends. You make this new chapter in my life feel like something when you read my posts.πŸ™‚

    Counting Down…

    It’s A cold Thursday afternoon just enjoyed the best smoothie that my daughter made. Trying to get more fruit in me and this works, now to get more veggies in . Done pretty good with cutting my carbs down. Now to keep up with it. Before I go on I want to thank Amber Diaries I wish I knew how to link .. need to learn . Anyway i thank her for the beautiful mention on her blog look her blog up . You will love her posts for reminding her the joy of adult coloring. Thank you !! I’ll be coloring again soon and will be posting itπŸ™‚ And If you didn’t see the update on my last post . My son passed his last test . Graduates tomorrow from the AIT his job training for Army National Guard . I feel bad no family will be their but he is fine since my husband and Mother-in-law made it to Missouri for his graduation from Basic Training in Dec and I was able to have him home for a week. He just wants to graduate which he said is about an hour and at 4 in the afternoon so it will be simple ..and he is so focused on flying home. He’s tired ready to be back in his own bed. Have a bit of some down time been a long 6months And then he start a new job , College his National Guard Reserves job and of course back to the gym he misses so much. . But he will be home ! In the same State since he may stay in a dorm at College. But first he needs to come home. After hearing he passed and is now graduating I relaxed with my book last nigh .I got a lot read had to stop myself or I could of read all night. It was so good . Its 3:00 in the afternoon . Unbelievable where this day went. My soaps are over clothes are in the dryer . House is clean my sons bedroom is all ready for him. And now for supper tonight …just my hubby and I ,my daughter will be with her boyfriend when she gets out of work. I’m thinking Manwhich (sloppy Joes) and potato tots which I will eat a little bit of but skip the roll just some cheese melted on the sloppy mixture. … yumπŸ˜₯ well time to do a few things before hubby gets home. Have a good day everyone.

    Ahh signs of Spring.

    Yes their predicting snow our way tonight … the good thing is they have lowered the amounts we are getting oh I hope their right . 3 to 5 inches …okay doable .. then the time it was suppose to start snowing keeps being pushed forward it was first 5 pm then 7 now it’s 8 pm. Okay this is not the sign of Spring … it’s these guys the top photo there is 4 turkeys their a bit camouflagedand their not little anymore. I believe their bigger then Miss Abigail and she knows it. She was watching them walk all around the back yard through the window . Her eyes so big. I was in my bedroom putting a few things away when out of the corner of my eye I saw out the window these guys walking by. Such a nice sign . Now they will be here in the mornings then the evenings until Fall. Love that their back, love seeing them. They have been doing this routine for the last two yrs . Last year there was babies which I believe these are the babies hopefully we will see some babies. . Will see. Supper is done and cleaned upI made Homemade Mac and cheese didn’t think I would like the orange sharp cheddar ,that’s all our local store had that wasn’t outrageously priced. I figured I would try it. Not bad, hubby liked it . Now I’m going to settle in read my book and get to bed hopefully earlier tonight . Miss Abigail kept us up jumping on my hubby scratching the bed then our window shade until my hubby brought her downstairs to her and my daughters place .My daughter out with her boyfriend texting me back at 1 when I texted her at ll:00 that she was downstairs watch when she came in. 😭 after that I had a hard time settling in with a good sleep with strange dreams .. so tonights goal is to read now then bed at 9 .πŸ™‚

    Dr. Seuss’s Birthday !

    It’s Dr. Seuss’s Birthday ! He wrote so many amazing books a lot of kids enjoyed and still enjoy . My daughter and son had two favorite Dr.Seuss stories .Green eggs and ham and Are you my Mother? Now are you my Mother was written by P.D. Eastman but in with the series of Dr. Seuss my kids love reading them before bed several times over until I had to finally say ok no more lights out. My daughter would be great about it and we would say our goodnight saying ,I posted this In past posts ..something cute she came up with and a bit time consuming but I think that was her point πŸ™‚.My son would just keep saying one more time with reading and I having to get a bit stern and tell him no and tuck him back in after he was standing up in his bed protesting . πŸ™„ yes my kids so totally different from one another

    . I love at their Elementary school they had someone dressed up in a Dr.Seuss costume .I must say why they had a women do it I’ll never know ..hahaha leave it to my daughter to wonder why Dr. Seuss had a chest haha ..yeah she pointed that out … then yes later as my son was older he would say to one of his friends it gives it away for the little kids knowing that it isn’t really Dr.Suess with a chest I would just roll my eyes as I listen to him and his friend talk about it . But I do agree hahaha …anyways it was nice they would read Green eggs and ham as the kids all sat in the lunch room and then there was a big birthday cake and the kids would sing happy birthday .It was cute. I don’t know if they still do it ,it would be a shame if they didn’t but like everything ,.things change ,kids have changed. .well my kids are adults now but they do remember those books and that time which is nice and comforting to know because at that time things seem so much simpler and kids were kids . And it just seems like kids do not read as much as they use to . Now being replaced by cellphones and texting a bit more.Only my opinion …

    Pain…

    It’s Friday night … The day started off good , enjoyed my morning coffee with my daughter . Paid some bills , ran some errands with my daughter then it went all wrong …ughh my sciatic pain hit me … haven’t felt that in awhile. So slowly made some supper with help of my hubby who kept saying sit . But I just couldn’t felt I needed to move … but slowly ..my daughter headed to work and feeling bad said she would grab more Advil . After making supper I settled with my legs up in the recliner with my book. Ahhh finally I’m going to read more of this book! Well….. I read a chapter in the hr and a half I’ve been sitting hereπŸ˜‚ my son talkative on text… my daughter not busy at work texting me. Every time I picked my book up my phone would go off.. oh my I usually am so happy omg chat with them . And believe me I am but oh I want to read (hahaha) it’s so good ! My daughters home now and waiting for her boyfriend to show up and my son is going to hang out with his buddies on the base since they will all be going home in a week . He is ready to head home but will miss his new buds! Next Saturday he flies home ,if flight is on time he will arrive early so he will have a whole day to settle in and not feel rushed to go to bed . He can ease into being back in his room without roommates which was a bit hard at first when he came home on his holiday break . I’m sure this time it will be easier. Well now that everyone’s set hubby’s relaxing on the couch with his stomach bothering him and I am going to put my legs up and try to relax this sciatic pain … enjoying some more reading. Good night everyone!
