It’s only been 3 days since I have posted but it seems so much longer than that but when your feeling under the weather the last 3 days it feels like a lifetime. I have been fighting or trying to fight what was coming on for about a week now. And Thursday night I had no choice but to surrender. , I have been off and on the couch through the day then by 4 in the afternoon, I spiral down and then Tylenol, tea Chromebook, and the couch become my best friends oh I can’t forget my country music softly playing in the background. It’s been relaxing falling to sleep to it. It occupies my mind from the discomfort of body aches I chuckle when I’m laying here in the dark falling asleep to it because it brings back a youthful moment in life when I was a teenager back home in my bedroom in the dark with my stereo playing love songs or rock music and feeling less weight on my shoulders life was simple no worries no thoughts running endlessly through my mind making my shoulders feel the weight they feel on them now. So even feeling under the weather I believe it’s given me a mental break of reflecting back to some moments that were comforting and no answers to look for. Just music and drifting off into a deep dream sleep. January is a hard month even though it’s been 24 yrs that my dad passed I still remember that dreadful time and day he said goodbye to me. You do not forget something like that. And with all the changes my life, myself have been going through I wish he was here to give me the answers to the questions I have. So these moments of youthfulness just listening to music while I sleep is so soothing.
Now for this sickness it’s been miserable . I am not one to be down . Tonight though feeling a bit more like myself enjoying some London Fog at first I thought it may keep me up but I do not believe it will at the moment with the tea and music I’m feeling very relaxed . Will see.
It’s a mild Friday evening and everyone is out of the house ..my son had a meet and my husband is there , I can’t wait till Spring when I can see my son participate in outdoor track. Winter track never works for me not enough sitting room , a lot of things going around and I’m still getting over my cold, I’m sure my son is fine he is busy concentrating on his meet . He will be happy there’s food for him when he gets home. That’s my part.My daughter is out with friends so it’s just myself and Miss Abigail who is on my bed at the moment nice and cozy so I am on the couch and coloring my 3rd Page in my adult coloring book in a Very Quiet house. Off and on I hear a thunk or a pounding noise but I tell myself that it’s the house settling after a warmer day and now cooler night . ….. I should be use to this by now this house has always made noises since we built 12 yrs ago. At first my husband didn’t believe me or should say didn’t want too until one night he was home by himself and heard the same noises. So I have the tv volume up. 😂 It’s helping a bit. I going to concentrate on my coloring. .🙂
I’ve had this books for months and I decided it was time to try reading again the book I posted earlier I couldn’t get into so I pulled this off my bookshelf and got comfy in bed with my hubby who sadly is now not feeling good , as my daughter is resting in her place downstairs still not feeling well , of course my son went out …do these kids ever stop? I tried not to quiz him he said he was meeting up with friends at a basketball game ….okay I believe the game should be over now it 9 he said it wouldn’t be late he wanted sleep after getting up at 5 to go to the gym before school, hmmm what’s early I really trying to get into this book I am into it it’s really good but my stupidity of a mind has me thinking and wanting to text him . I’m giving him 30 minutes more to walk through that door or text then I may just call him . Why I ask why . Tomorrow I may have to be firm and tell him enough nights this week , he has a meet Friday a late one then nay have work Saturday morning. Sorry everyone if I sound like a broken record . I’m just not not good with this teenage stuff. Okay wish me luck going to try reading till I decide to call him.
it’s been 4 days since I was last on here which seem like forever. last week was very busy challenging and a moment of change. My daughter finally found herself a car she has been sharing my car for two years yes two years , I do not drive that often so it worked out especially in the winters because I worried about slipping on ice with my hip.Summer was a little more challenging with my son being out of school for summer vacation and needing to be places . Its funny how after doing something for so long you adapt and knowing that this is so great for my daughter and her independency . It was a moment of change and reality that my daughter is an adult … yes I did realize this but this was just an awakening for me . I know this will make things easier for me that when I do need to do something or just want to go somewhere I can I can just do it , tell you a little secret sometimes it was nice if my daughter needed the car for work then I could stall doing what I needed to do. yes I know not good but sometimes just staying home is not so bad . well now I have no choice. very happy though for my daughter .It was time. Also during this pass week my Son had his first outdoor track meet for this yr. His team won!! and my son was amazing he came in 2nd in the Javelin 2nd in triple jump and 1st in both of his hurdle races I am so proud of him I am happy I can write it on my blog my son does not like me writing it on my facebook or posting pictures he doesn’t want it to look like I am bragging. I am not just so proud and want to share that is it. I am so proud of his whole team they all were so amazing .. Sad part I did have to watch it from my car it was on Friday and it was so cold snowing or sleeting off and on and windy and my hip and legs would not do well sitting there so I stayed in the car my husband walked around and watched . Sadly on Saturday he woke up sore and at first we thought because he worked so hard and the cold had stiffened his muscles but as the day when on it came apparent he had come down with what was going around at his school and in our town so he has been in bed off and on sleeping with a fever and body aches . poor guy. so like I said it’s been quite a week and a cold one for April it’s unbelievable this weather everyone around us has something. so that sums it up of my busy week …and another milestone . Do not blink because life changes so fast and kids grow up way to fast.
