This my Photo for Photo Monday! This is what my Son did this past weekend , Downhill Mountain Bike Racing . Very exciting but also very dangerous as well and I was a walking worry wreck…. yes I am a mother hahaha. On Saturday was signing in getting his race number walking and then practicing riding the trail you would race down . That we did not have to stay for so I signed the permission slip and then went and did errands till my husband was home from work then we finished the rest of the errands together around the time my Son said he would be heading home an ambulance went by us then life flight flew over …..I looked at my husband and he knew what I was thinking “no it’s not him he is fine its probably not even going that way” I said okay went in the house kept busy then saw my son drive in happy to see him ,my husband joked and said oh your mom was worried and he told him what we saw and my son said they where there.. okay back to worrying again. My son was scratched up on his leg said he did go down and did claim the trails where slick and he was a bit worried. So he went in cleaned up and took it easy the rest of the night and I think it was a long sleepless night for both of us.
Sunday Race Day: we got their he was nervous but excited and I felt the same way a lot of people their music playing food cooking it was sunny for the most part of the day my daughter showed up after work and he headed up on the lift with his bike. …and we waited lets say I held my breath when his number was announced and within minutes he came flying down , he did well very well for not doing it for two yrs he didn’t come in first or even close but was safe happy and satisfied with the time. I guess since he has become older and wiser he knows he is not invincible and things happen and that is what nerved him…good thing he is older more experienced and cautious . I am we all are so proud of him. ….and now on to the next one oh yeah there is more.
Aww it’s Friday , can’t complain wasn’t a bad week actually very pleasant. Monday was a holiday so we let the rain come down and skipped having a cookout and went out to eat . then it was My Son’s Track banquet which started off pretty scary as they where predicting severe thunderstorms we where driving right into it with my semi new white yes white car getting hit by quarter size hail.. we let my son drive because it was at the coaches new house he knew the way and I let my husband sit up in front to help him just in case well as I was having a major freak out sorry can’t think of another way to explain what I was feeling or doing as the hail just shattered down on my car and I’m trying to block my ears and mind of what my car would look like after My son pulled off the road to a logging road under a tree to protect it a bit the wind was blowing so bad and it was so dark the scene was like out of a movie. luckily the storm passed and car was fine covered in leaves and dirt but that was do able . So we got to the banquet safely and it was fun and sad at the same time seeing the seniors say goodbye we will miss those runners especially my son ..Then Thursday night my daughter and I sat out on our deck under the star’s and enjoyed the peepers as well . Tonight ..Friday it’s a chilly one and my husband has to work on Saturday and my son will be at the mountain bike park early practicing for his down hill race on Sunday which is scaring excuse my language but it’s scaring the hell out of me I will be there to watch and will be holding my breath till he is safely down that mountain ..but for now settled in on this Friday night under our covers watching television. Watching repeat of America’s Got Talent showing it for people who missed the 1st night so enjoying that again. Well everyone have a good night.
On Sunday my Son had his Junior class Auction to raise money for their class for senior year I didn’t go because I really didn’t get the whole auction thing and I figure you should have a good amount of money . He was helping out . So I did some food shopping for his track meet …Gatorade and and snacks when I came home here sat this beautiful set of dishware a China set on our kitchen table, my husband said he bid for these thinking I would like them ….yes I do.. I love them , their so fragile and beautiful .My husband said he was proud looking when he walked in with them . I wanted to cry because there was so many things after I found out he could of tried for that he liked but did not. I went into his room and gave him the biggest hug and he smiled and I just did not want to let go 🙂 another beautiful moment.. so this is my photo Monday. 🙂
This week is my Sons Spring Vacation. It’s been a very different one. My Son goes to work then has an hr when he gets out of work to then get ready for track practice .then gets out of practice to galavant with his friends for a bit to feel like it’s a vacation. As for I it’s so layed back that it’s such an unfamiliar thing okay actually I shouldnt say that.. Im getting use to this change.He drives himself so I do my house duties then may take a ride and grab a coffee .I can my time and write. Change such a thing to get use to but not much of a choice you are given you just go with it.Tonight it’s chilly and raining so no star gazing My favorite Spring Summer past time so my hubby and I and Miss Abigail the kitty are settled in watching tv and I am adult coloring. All good. After s couple of days on the deck in the sun I need a break my face is a bit sunburned. Crazy weather Mother Nature is being moody I heard it is helping the tick population so start now and check your pet’s when they come inside and if you are hiking or in the woods working and your little ones are operating around in the high grass check them and yourself ‘ there predicting a bad season with them. Well in my area Alright everyone I’m going to enjoy my sons company for a bit now that he just arrived home before he goes out or goes to bed .
Today Spring track season begins .My Sons first meet sadly I will be missing this one where the track is located it’s to much walking for this hip to bare …I will catch the next one that will be at his school. So proud of him he has worked so hard he is such a great runner sadly he puts so much into it that its not a pleasant evening for about 2hrs after it because his body and mind. Need to relax ,he is so spent after these meets but it’s a adrenaline rush before them….such a vicious cycle . I will have food ready for him when he is done . then it will be homework and bed . life of a teenage athlete.
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.
This week my photo is on Tuesday very busy Monday. Over the weekend my husband and I celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary and it was celebrated a bit different this yr. Instead of going to our favorite little town Pub we went to The Texas Road house and this was because of two reasons we where by their and we purchased a vehicle for myself. which was well needed and I should of been jumping for joy instead I was a nervous wreak hahahah now in the past my husband and I carried two vehicle loans which is happening again so why was I so hesitant….we did not give it a second thought the first time sooo why …I counted the reason we should 1: had a 2006 Chevy Malibu 2: it was well used 3: my son needed a car and we where sharing it and that was not working. so okay all good points now why not. 1: newer 2: been awhile would worry what I did to it. okay that’s the why not’s hahah so yeah I know I am over thinking..hmmm to good at that, not a good trait. so anyways as we pulled put of the dealership and headed to The Texas Road house like I said change of eatery we came upon this beautiful site right in front of us my husband and I just admired it was so big and there it was my sign ….we made a good choice it was all good just enjoy be happy ..yes I know my sign’s again but I believe this was. What do you think ? let me know love to know ..oh and enjoy the site….
