I know …. I’ve posted already today but I’m awake still. I’m laying in bed though so that’s a good thing. It’s so cold and I wanted my bed. As I’m laying here and was trying to organize my Facebook wall and messaging my daughter off and on because she is awake as well. I keep hearing over my hubby’s snoring hahaha … okay to get serious the popping and cracking noise of our house proving all to well how cold it is. My daughter has a friend sleeping over who has to do a night shift so has to go for 1in the morning and oh is it going to be nasty going out to her car in -1 temps , I feel so bad for her. My son texted me tonight he said it was only 1 in Missouri all day and he had to be out in it. I think the cold got to him even though he should be more use to it then his army buddies that are from the south . Being he was brought up in New England. He was grumpy and yes I could tell even over text that he wrote he didn’t actually come out with it that he was grumpy I could just feel it when I read his messages . I said are you feeling cooped up ? He wrote ” oh my god yes! ” ” you can tell ?” I said oh yes I can . He is such a free spirit … even though he loves what he’s doing . Just always been that way. Love and hate that about him it’s like trying to tame a wild animal at times hahaha didn’t know how else to put it. But then on the other hand his heart and humbleness is huge. My daughter is that way too but I don’t feel I have to tame a wild animal with her 🙂 So I was making an album of his army photos on Fb and now their all on my feed and people are liking them and I’m thinking he will not be impressed 🙄 I didn’t realize if I made an album in photos so there all together it comes up in the news feed… 😩 yeah that will really impress him… not! I told my daughter and she laughed and said yeah they kept coming up as notifications on my phone that you posted. Oh well not much I can do about it now. Earlier I was watching videos and reading about Hygge I know so random but I just heard another loud pop and it reminded me of this .. a few of my friends on here and my hubby were talking about it . It’s so interesting . I love to talk more about it but my eyes are not wanting to stay open and it is late so I guess I will get under the covers a bit more and get some sleep. Goodnight everyone.
Monday’s what can we say about Monday’s … their not the most favorable day 🙄 but this one I must admit wasn’t too bad , after a rainy dreary Sunday and no sleep the night before , it was nice to wake up to a bright sunny morning after a good nights sleep. and a very good hair day (hahaha) now to tell you what I did today well I don’t know it was a day of just whatever I enjoyed my cup of coffee a bit longer this morning . Chatted with a friend on Facebook . Then proceeded with getting supper going in the faithful crockpot . Then just chatted on and off with my daughter who had off today but spent the most part of her day down in her place as she cleaned it and hung out with her boyfriend who was over. I left went to the Post Office and there sat two letters from my son in our post box. It was nice to hear from him he is sounding much more mature . And excited about coming home for Christmas but actually now is switching gears … again … now instead of missing home he’s going on now how he thinks he’s going to miss the base it feels like home to him now the funny thing is I’m wondering because he is coming home for 12 days for Christmas and I’m thinking when he comes home to his bed , us , his old friends we could be dragging him to the airport to go back to AIT there. But I do understand and he’s made such great friends and even though they exchanged phone numbers and so on it won’t be the same as they move on to graduation and their AIT heading in different directions. One guy he is happy about because they realize they only live several town overs so hopefully they can catch up with one another. He’s come a long ways from feeling sappy to now going to miss being their .. oh home is going to be so boring for him. I’m thinking he may reach out even more to an Army career but will see he’s young and good at changing his mind a lot … it can make your head spin. Whatever he chooses I just hope it’s not settling for less in this town .. it’s a nice little town to raise a family and retire in but not for a active adventurous young guy . It can be a bad thing. So yes defiantly will see. I do know I love my kids will do anything for them but want them to be independent happy adults like we all hope and wish for. And I’m actually getting use to just doing whatever ..my lazy routine if you want me to admit it. (Hahaha) yes I know I’m limited as it is physically and so I know my limits … I just know I’m into a routine of keeping myself busy in simple ways . Taking to more friends doing more hobbies It will be nice to have a bit more activity in this quiet house . But Im just afraid he will come home and after awhile settle back into his old ways of doing his running and I wondering where he is .. I know what people have told me he’s part of the Army now so National Guard reserves or full time they own him and that has and will keep him knowing to be on the straight and narrow not that he never was he just loves late nights and keeping me wondering. Oh how things change and it’s so hard to adjust then you do and then things change again and you have to adjust again to that change .. this thing called life 🙂
When it sounds and looks like this you want to crawl under your covers and go to sleep.
Last night feeling a bit under the weather I started the book I had bought back while ago at the book store with my son. I must say its a bit sad , talks about a dark time in history about the Holocaust . The book is written beautiful and with sensitivity . I love Danielle Steele she is such a beautiful author . I could of read well after midnight but stopped myself to settle into some sleep at a decent time. Today feeling still under the weather and it being a rainy dark cool day I still needed to run errands that included stopping at our local convenient store and getting their lg cup of delicious hot chocolate.. so chocolaty and creamy for only .99 cents with my daughter. to help along being out in the cold ,then it was time to get home and get somethings done around the house… hoping to settle soon and read some more. I’m due to have some of this rainy day to relax.. And that being said I think I will start now. So have a good night everyone while I go and enjoy my book.
I woke early to the sound of my son and his friend in the kitchen . I was shocked it was morning after reading my book before bed and shutting the light off around 11 ,I fell asleep quick . This is the earliest I’ve fallen to sleep in a month. No thinking well over thinking I told myself the day before I wouldn’t do that I’m such a thinker so this is going to be a challenge . I kept myself happily busy did things that needed to be done then I relaxed enjoyed my soapy and settled with a afternoon coffee and finished my page I was working on in my adult coloring book. Anyways Morning was. here so after hearing my sons friend leave I jumped in the shower and then for a cup of coffee ,my son chatted with me as I enjoyed my coffee so that was nice . My daughter comes home today after being away for 3days with her Grandmother at the beach. Miss Abigail will be happy to see her. She has been my little buddy following me through the house as I was getting things done.
Happy to say it’s the 1st day in about 2weeks that I could shut off the air and open windows. Been sitting outside reading my book while Miss Abigail sits in the window watching me .🙂 It feels good to be able to sit outside and not feel hot. Soon my daughter will be here she texted me that she was grabbing us pumpkin spiced coffee on her way home and would be here soon .. mine decaf since it’s now 4 in the afternoon. Can’t wait . My son is off on a bike ride with some friends in the nearby town bike trails . So do not expect him home anytime soon. I guess I will enjoy some more of my book before my daughter arrives to chat with me about her trip . 🙂
I woke late after a not so early night. I had hope for since feeling under the weather all Sunday. I settled in bed earlier enough with my book desperate to relax under the warm blankets and read . I really want to start reading my newest book I bought with my son. I read about two chapters mind you the chapters are not very long to the next , my eyes kept closing but my mind kept wondering where my son was he had been gone from early afternoon and said he would be home for supper …well the plate sat wrapped in the oven waiting for him. Time ticked on. My daughter who came home from work was now settled down in her place with Miss Abigail. Around 9 I gave in shut the light off and laid there. A bit into laying there my phone dinged it was my son letting me know he would be home late don’t wait up … what every mother loves to hear but does the opposite. My daughter then rang my phone asking if he was home I told her she said he’s fine go to bed. So once again I settled in. As I closed my eyes I heard through the quietness of the house a barking noice then a yipping noise that turned it to a loud eerie howl . Oh the boys were back or at least one of them …thinking this boy (coyote) is living in our woods. My daughter came up and said do you hear that it’s so loud . I was shocked she could hear it. Well once again wide awake. About midnight my son texted Home in driveway go to sleep now … he knows me too well . I told him about the coyote he texted oh good will tame him. I laughed to myself .. Then he was off and I heard him walk in. Next thing I know it’s 8:30 in the morning . Rain coming down hitting the window. Can you say no let it still be night (hahaha) even though I felt a bit better I laid there in bed taking in the quietness of the rain . Soon after my kids were banging around in the kitchen and the sound of coffee cups being set on the counter had me up and showered and heading for one of those cups. Ahh coffee always helps. So that was my night hoping for a earlier night tonight. afternoon was nice my daughter and I took a ride it was a perfect rainy cold day for a drive thru Starbucks for my first pumpkin spiced latte for the season …So good. Now it’s night time my sons home reading in his bedroom my daughters with her boyfriend catching up on American horror stories down in her place. I will read a bit while hubby is laying here next to me watching Monday Night football. Then I will get some sleep it’s still raining so hopefully the boys are sheltering themselves deep in our wood and staying quiet tonight. We will see.
This day flew by as fast as the evening did it’s 10:00 at night as I write this . I was going to read but then got sidetracked on here so reading my book may wait another day. Nothing like getting on your phone to search something and before you know it your on everything else. Sitting in the living room with Miss Abigail country awards is blaring from the TV really not watching just listening to the bands as my hubby is asleep in bed .the kids are out as usual .. times have change no more curfews for my youngest now that he’s 18 my oldest has her own entrance into the house whenever she gets home. Now to say I do not worry a bit when their out would be a joke.. moms always worry . Trying though to be better about it . I know it’s only 10 , I could read but I know that will bring me to 2in the morning. I guess I will call it a night and settled into bed with my sleeping hubby and air conditioner. Good night everyone.
