it’s unbelievable how it’s the weekend already , one more day and spring vacation Is over. My son did what I thought, if you read my recent posts … all vacation he was home every night and then after his Friday track meet he went out with friends and midnight came and I was like oh good he’s home before driving curfew ..then in walked my daughter hmm okay my oldest home before my youngest.. of course happy she was home safe but now where was my son, So I texted him please check in he replied back we are all together at a friends house I will be home . Okay well hmm when I thought . My daughter came up from her place and asked where is he did he check in ? told her yes . So we went in to the living room now both wide awake . As my hubby was sleeping away .. 12:40 hit and no son so I texted are you really at a friends ? He sends back a photo of them all sitting at his friends house that looked familiar and they where sitting around a board game so I told him just stay over it’s late .
My daughter and I stayed chatting in the dark yawning in between sentences 🙂 but not wanting to stop because we where enjoying the moment to chat , it’s been awhile since we stayed up at all hours of the night chatting ..summer is coming this is when we seem to stay up and have these chats . The best moments. It hit a little after 2 and we both agreed it was time to get some sleep.
7:00 in the morning came quick the room was bright from the sun shinning in …tried to go back to sleep for a bit but my hubby and I gave up so we got up made some coffee and breakfast , showered and was out the door at 10 for food shopping . My son came home early morning and already was ready to leave for a run when we walked in the door . After he came back my son and I went and cleaned the car and took a ride and chatted it was all his idea so that was another moment that I have missed . I must say it was a nice. Simple weekend with moments that where as simple but lasting cherish moments . Having some time with both of my kids that are so hard to get now that their older I must say is priceless .
Crazy November… today it’s 53 out which for us is a warm day ,the house is quiet but not my daughter and I filling the quiet house-with some laughter being silly and it’s not like we are doing anything special just having a mother daughter moment . Love!!
The evenings are so much shorter these days as I’m not just talking about it getting darker earlier , it just used to be consumed by early suppers then getting the kids doing and finishing their homework then baths and showers and one tv show and reading time and then off to bed. Now it’s later suppers and whoever is here to eat what I make and when then earlier settling in bed to watch some shows but now replaced with catching up on them on stream lining NBC the next day because hubby has to get up so much earlier for work so earlier to bed because we are older now and mornings are not good without the proper sleep🙄 how things have changed … oh believe me this is not a rant or complaint just a sad statement to life and how much it changed in the past couple of years . I’m adjusting it’s a lot more simple and sometimes less stressful but I’m learning or should say my hubby and I are learning how to relate to our older kids now and our life with eachother again … you will be so surprised if your younger and just starting out with marriage, babies and your reading this and going what ? Believe me now that my kids have grown and we are less needed and the focus is not all on them . You come to realize how much you and your better half have changed and grown it’s such an amazing thing . I find that we are settled in our own routine and that’s okay and we have our routine as a couple as well it’s so different how we relate now ,this whole new chapter . Waiting to be discovered .
After a typical Monday day getting back to the work and school week and the lovely task of housework which is never done, you know laundry dusting weekend clutter etc .. then making supper which was stuffed peppers I must say came out pretty good. So tonight was an active one not the quietness my hubby and I have been settling into lately it was the comings and goings of my son and his friends and now they have decided to stay the night and my daughter went out with one friend but another friend asked to come here after work till my daughter came home and now she is staying over . I love when the house is full of friends it’s such a great feeling I hope there will be a lot more of this, this yr till my son goes to college . My husband is awkward about it hahahaha but not l! I’m happy my daughters friend feels comfortable to come here on thier own and my sons friends are comfortable to leave and come back t makes my house seem homey to them. That’s really all that makes me happy. 🙂it’s just these simple moments that I cherish .
