Hi Everyone , it’s been a long two days and yes I like my picture shows I am tired. The stomach bug hit our house and The one that got it was my Son of all people this kid is never really sick well some minor colds but he hasn’t had a stomach bug like this since he was a very little boy and throwing up for him is not good because it doesn’t stop until many rounds and once in the ER at 4yrs old and once again where he ended up this time .
Wednesday he came home from school said he was tired after sports which isn’t unusual for him and so I made him supper he ate then at 5:30 he went into his room and my husband I figured he is doing homework so I checked he is bundled up under the the covers fast asleep in his bed. We left him he came out a few time that night so at 11 my husband and I are in bed we hear him in the bathroom I’m like oh boy that does not sound good so he comes out, we are like are you sick he says I think so three more time off and on till midnight so now I am getting concerned and nervy because I do not do good with this kind of virus so after seemed he settled. At 3 in the morning he wakes me he is mumbling I haven’t slept at all been running to the’ bathroom all night I’m in a daze from being woken up so fast.I am like what omg ! he is yelling do something do something it wont stop so I call the Dr. and he goes to ER and they put him on an IV two bags later he is out sleeping away ..then about 3hrs later they send him home well hydrated and weak poor guy slept the rest of the day and now mind you I have had about 3hrs as well as my husband who took an hour and half snooze then had to go to work .I should of taken a nap but didn’t couldn’t was so wired up and just started sanitizing everything and laundry ….well such a wrong thing by yesterday (Thurs) afternoon I just wanted to crash but you know that over tired feeling well that was hitting me as well .I have realize I am getting old and a goodnight sleep is what I need . My son is doing better and is home still weak but yes much better I think he would rather be a 100 percent but finding out that food is not is best friend at the moment but drinking is and resting. Hopefully a quiet weekend for him. So a mothers job is never done how no matter old they get yes less taking care of but still needed and the worrying is always going to be there. So now he is off to sleep after watching many movies and I may take a nap as well.
Another rainy day , what can you do I do Thank Mother Nature because we need this rain , It’s nice to see the rivers back up to where they should be . I do not like the fog and it was foggy driving to school today but my Son did very well driving. I must say he is an excellent driver I am just a bit worried when he gets on is own with a license he will get to daring . so until that time comes in Feb I will be very strict with him. I have already laid out the rules and if he breaks them he looses the car privileges whether its my car or his he thought that part was unfair loosing his car but my my husband and I both agree that he is only 16 and we are helping him to save getting his own car or truck . This is when its not easy being a parent.
On another note I was so happy to actually get some good solid sleep wow what a difference it makes . I have been having a hard time this last week with getting good sleep I believe to much thinking before bed does not help… so one it was great my two favorite shows where on and two I have decided I just need to let certain things go sometimes things will fall where they may and I am not going to let this get to me yes…..Christmas is not helping ,my kids are set my husband and I agree we will do something for one another after Christmas but the rest of the family oh my can I just say I surrender hahaha with so many things due bill wise for instance my Son and driving classes a new truck that my husband was in desperate need of yeah just cannot go crazy this year. So doing the best I can and it is what is. Do you think Christmas is getting to materialistic? let me know I would love to know what you think. so for now I must go have to run some errands . have a great day everyone.
Tonight we change our clocks back so now we will gain an extra hour of sleep which I believe is nice who doesn’t enjoy an extra hour of sleep, it will make the days shorter as it will get dark around 4:30 so the the evenings will seem endless it’s nice when its cold out but when the weather is still a bit warm it makes it a little bit harder to settle in and I believe heading to work and school in the morning it will be still dark so adapting to that once again will be hard. I so dislike mornings I am not a morning person so darker morning will be hard . So don’t for get everyone if you live where there is daylight savings time turn your clocks back and good time to check your batteries in your fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors .
Tonight is the night we set our clocks forward. I usually love when we do this time change it makes Spring seem so much closer and almost this new sense of newness but this yr I am not looking forward to it….it’s going to give me less sleep and more time to worry where my Son is which I am hoping I nipped in the butt after that last post I wrote how he stayed out till after 10 on a school night and he wouldn’t answer is phone, we had a long talk and he has been better even though it’s only been about 3 days hahaha I hope it keeps up . he will want to be out later now too..and it starts to get him into the summer mode so school homework will have to be pushed more …so fun. as I am writing this I’m looking back at what I have wrote and it has negativity written all over it.Sorry about that I notice my last post have been negative too., it’s just been a long sad complicated week I’m going to as of Monday be a little more positive. I am not a positive person but I can’t say I am a negative person either I know that sometimes negativity is what drives me to move forward if that makes sense? because if I think positive and it doesn’t go that way then I will be disappointed if I’m negative then it will either be a good thing and I have something to look forward to if not then nothing has changed…yes I am complicated hahaha but I have lived this way for so long it’s a hard thing to break. but I will try. I do need to say one more thing I will dislike about this time change the darker mornings I think we can all agree on that ,that is not enjoyable.Now that I wrote my negative thoughts 🙂 I hope everyone enjoys there night going to go and enjoy mine it’s a Saturday night and all of my family is actually home we may be doing all out own things but it’s nice we are all home for once on a Saturday night. have a good night everyone!
I lay here in the warmth of my bed , darkness all around me except for a shadow of light from the moon above. The sounds of a trains whistle in the distance breaks the quietness that is comforting but almost unsettling…. The quietness comes back my eyes are feeling heavy soon sleep will be upon me . So I say my prayers to the heavens above thanking God for all the blessings he has given me…then I turn gently to my side trying to not awake my husband who is sleeping softly next to me, has I lay there. sleep takes over me and I fall gently to sleep…..
We officially had our first snow day in my world today . we woke up to a phone call at 5 in the morning informing us of no school, so decided to take advantage of it go back to sleep snuggled back under the blankets as my husband got up and got ready for work , okay the smell of coffee brewing had me temped to drag myself out from under those blankets but then I was not ready to look outside at the snow…still do not miss having a snow less winter. so I fell back to sleep . my pups got restless so it was time to let him out start the day ….funny thing snow day right?? I pull up the shade ready to see the ground covered in white….No nothing I was like wait was there really a snow day hahaha? well yes it was it didn’t start till 2, my son could of had school and he agreed too…so I took advantage of catching up on laundry that got neglected over the weekend due to running with my kids and husband shopping enjoying watching my son driving up and down our driveway since are driveway is like a dead end road and seeing how happy he is knowing soon he will be driving …for me nervous not that I do not have faith in his driving I do just he is my baby …and I am a mom.so today was catch up day and my daughter took advantage cleaning her place. My Son took the day to relax and get some well needed sleep . Snow days are just not the same anymore so sad I remember tons of snow and my kids couldn’t wait to get out in it and slide build snowmen make snow angels till they couldn’t feel their fingers and toes then come in get dry and have hot chocolate with marshmallows in it put a movie in for my son as my daughter cozy up with a book. love the memories ….tomorrow my daughter and I will go to our favorite place for lunch Panera’s and then Starbucks for a coffee and sit back and enjoy…I miss those days when they were young but I like the new special moments and memories we are making now too.
