It’s been about 17 hours since hearing from my son. At 8 pm when he landed in Missouri he waited for his ride to the base . At 10:30 his time 11:30 ours we texted he thought he would be staying at the Army quarters there for the night being that the Base was 2hrs away. At 11 pm I received a message that he was shipping out to the base so we said somethings to him and then Goodnight thinking it would probably be the last we heard from him until he could do once a week calls.. after my hubby and I having a rough emotional day ,sleep was not easy to come but eventually we manage to fall a asleep . At 3:00 in the morning my phone lit up and the ring was so loud I had had it up . My sons face appeared on it . It was a quick serious voice I’m here and stating he was safe and when he could call he would .. well that made us happy he was safe .. there ..but it triggered my mothering strings .. did he eat , drink enough , why isn’t he sleeping oh yes I could keep going.🙄 my hubby and I eventually settled down to get some sleep I do not believe much we both have been in a fog all day and expecting him to walk through the door at any minute. So much to get use to , it’s quiet , less busy, less razzing one another , I miss his big smile . Supper time and and now evening is the hardest because this is when I’m waiting wondering when he will be home to eat or not . Not wondering .. worrying when he will be home when we go to bed. Okay you got the idea . Just so hard. Miss him. This afternoon I did do some adult coloring that helped .it stopped my thoughts from wondering. For awhile ..
It’s coming along pretty good . I think it will look good after it’s done. I’m happy I was able to get into it today. and now that supper is done and cleaned up a plate saved for my daughter when she gets him from work , chocolate cookie bars just made. I think while chatting with my hubby and watching news I’ll color a bit more . I think it may be a early night for all of us ,my daughter who stated she didn’t sleep well and hoping thinking it will be for my son as well . Will all get the sleep we need . I hope you enjoy my photo of my coloring page . I guess it’s time to finish some more.
Rainy dark morning …thankfully the thunderstorm has subsided and now just rain , it’s scary when you notice a storm is just not a simple storm anymore they are so strong and damaging . My prayers go out to the Carolinas and the other states in the path of hurricane Florence ,I have been watching the weather channel and Twitter is doing a good job of tracking this and giving out a lot of info . She’s a monster and no chance of slowing down. It’s stated that the storms are so and getting more powerful because the ocean water is warmer Hmm .. sounds like Global warming to me . Some may debate this but so be it . That’s for another time let’s just keep all that are in it’s path in your thoughts and prayers
When you just happen to look out your kitchen window while your treating yourself to some hot chocolate and you see a beautiful sight in your back yard… a beautiful buck and you know your husband is outside and the buck has his eyes on him but doesn’t mind. Sadly I didn’t get a photo because I was just so happy to see it . It’s always the same way when I happen to just look out . When I look for them there is nothing.but I guess that’s what makes the moment so special . Such a beautiful creature and I am so happy we have the privilege to see them and they know their safe here..The simple things in life❤️
I Everyone after a busy Last Boosterday week for my senior with all the festivities the dressing up costumes School color day, pep rally float making and then the football game and a very sore son , but feeling ok even if he wasn’t he wouldn’t stop going So anyways and last but least the Homecoming dance on Saturday night . Happy all the kids had fun and stayed safe. Today was a relaxing whateverkind of day after food shopping … finished my page and started a new one to relax so it was a nice day to sit outside do some adult coloring while enjoying the sun , here is the page I finished and then the page I have been working on. Love coloring.
Today at 6 Am Stella the Blizzard arrived and it covered the bare ground remarkably fast. and now you can see we have snow and at 8:40 pm it’s still snowing and the wind is still blowing and Spring is about two days away but does not seem possible. My poor husband is outside at this moment plowing our road of a driveway with our tractor so he will be ready to jump in the hot shower then bed . This winter cannot end fast enough. It’s been a long one for everyone I know. I hope if any of you had stella as a visitor all of you are safe and warm. well a short post tonight but hmy daughter and I are going to watch the season finale of This is Us ..so goodnight everyone lets hope for some sun in the morning and melting.
It’s Friday night, whats that mean to you? well for me let’s see we are all home My daughter is down in her apartment my son in his room with his bedroom walls rocking from his music. and my husband and I are in our bedroom he is watching television while I am on my laptop. oh can’t forget my pup is at the foot of the bed sleeping, yes sound boring I am sure to some… to me it’s contentment I you told simple is what I like I will take any moment we are all home together and safe .At the beginning of the week when school started back a young married couple in their middle 20’s I would say a local couple two towns over from where we live was in a horrible car accident I can’t say if horrible even defines how bad.. they were headed I believe to work at 5 in the morning and some how hit a tractor trailer truck…nothing was left of their poor car .. I believe they died on site, sad thing is they left 3 children all under the age of five. the whole situation is devastating , for whatever reason this happened doesn’t matter it just shows how short life is and how fast it can be taken away . So hug your love ones tonight and if your spending a Friday night like I am be thankful you are able to.
