Life at a halt..

We should be used to this by now. The ice storm came in yesterday evening and it came in with a vengeance. Everything closed down in the Town for the most part. And yes people still went out. Will we ever learn to just stay put for a bit . I know I’m feeling a bit of cabin fever but this is ice we are talking about. So yes I restrained myself. yes My son of course is out but bringing friends back who lost power at their house. It will definitely not be a quiet night. I’m am okay with this. The sound of laughter will be music to my ears. Give this house some life for a bit. Since the day was a day inside. I took advantage of sleeping in . Being lazy. And some time to make the tea that my fellow blogger and happy to call a friend told me about and gave me the ingredients Thank you to John at Electic Contrarian. The London fog was so delicious. And yes I think I’m going to be addicted. 🙂 a perfect cold dreary day for it. Warm comforting and delicious . It cheered my day up . Thank you John. Okay time to catch up on some posts.🙂

The longest Day…

It’s been a long week, a lot of mishaps. If I want to even call it that. Let’s see I finally ventured out Thurs afternot wanting to wait. On dealing with the icy driveway.to get to an appt and just get out as well. I do not know if that was a mistake to get out that day or the lack of staying in too long.on my way home on Thurs night, I happened to get hit by a truck that I believe was driving. A bit. too fast because I honestly looked as I left the parking lot and ventured out on to the busy road. It was clear until I heard a loud crunch and realized I had been hit. I am okay as the guy that collided with me is. Also, my driver’s side door has minor damage. I manage to get back out with my son on Friday for a long drive four hours later 😊 he estimated wrong how far it was the truck he wanted to look at. I was okay with it him, and I had a great day together. Today it’s Saturday evening, and it’s the longest day literally. Getting dark around 4 is horrible and my thoughts are reflecting back to this last week and it’s not good. I do not do well with sitting around. And that’s what it’s been today. I am hoping I can settle in a bit cozy in on the couch with some hot tea and my chrome book and watch a movie peacefully. And settle my thoughts. I am anxiously waiting for this holiday to go by and get some kind of normalcy back. If that. I just need a week to get back and do my appts and me time. and stop thinking about everything and just do and stop worrying if I did enough for this Christmas. Oh, what it’s become. My kids are adults, and I need to let go of the should of and have to’s, which I am so good at. And wishing someone could get on board with switching it up a bit now. Sadly things do change. And I am good with it .its healthy to change.but my partner hmm not.. And it’s frustrating. Like I said long yr long day and too much thinking ng and not doing.

Feelings…

I woke with a nostalgic feeling.. I laid there in bed thinking how the time was here … my sons move out day to move in to his dorm. I made my way to a quick shower feeling a bit foggy head from my medication for my UTI but pushed forward. Made my way out to take the dose and grab a cup of coffee. My son asked me if I would help him pack his clothes .. of course I said. We talked and listen to music as we went through his clothes. And yes we laughed it was nice. I became quiet and he said oh mom don’t be sad I’m not going to be that far away you can do a day trip and come have lunch with me. I guess it’s just the fact of seeing his things packed up and not hearing the back door shut and close continually .The house will be quiet. I guess that’s my dread… I was handling his leaving pretty good for awhile but now as I sit here look at everything piled in the living room ready to go I’m feeling a bit sad. Always a mother… I am so proud of him and I want him to reach for the stars because I know he is capable of that . He has such drive and I know it will take him on any path he chooses. I have one plus I have my car back (hahaha) silly how that is one of the things I’m looking forward to. On Monday I will spend the day out shopping with my daughter and get our Starbucks pumpkin lattes . That is out. That will be fun a break up the week . Life once again changes .. oh how I got too comfortable with him being home again after Basic. Well time to get some sleep or at least try. Not holding out too much hope for that. 🙂this just some of his tags he will be taking the rest is in his room .

Sunday…

As long as last week was ,as short as this weekend is. It’s just hitting 7:30 and the sun has already disappeared below the trees and settled into the mountain well thats how it looks . Peepers no more . Do they stop making noise at a certain time of the season? And no wildlife as well . At least the humidity is slowly dissipating. It’s a bit more bearable . A new week will be beginning and plans are being made to fill it up . Monday will be spent eyewear shopping with my daughter who needs to get new glasses and wants my opinion. Maybe I can find a book or two while we are out and about. Then Wednesday my daughter and I will catch an afternoon movie. We want to see the new The lion King , my daughter loved it as a little girl . It looks really good . So looking forward to that. All fun things to do this week. Then the birthday weekend will arrive and I can’t wait for that to pass by … not for my son I love celebrating my kids birthdays it’s mine Id like to forget. So with that said my son is accumulating a good room full of items for his college dorm. Unbelievable he will be starting college in a month . National Guard drill will be starting up for him the first of August so he has that to do as well. Things will get busy soon for him and I less busy….. less busy worrying about him (hahaha) he will be tucked away in school. I’m really hoping he likes it. Time will tell. In the mean time I will enjoy both my kids while their home together . A rarity these days. It’s 8 now and it’s getting dark already . My son is out on his bike for a quick ride before it gets completely dark. Waiting to hear the roar of it’s engine soon pulling into the driveway. Oh how he loves that bike. Hubby will be going to bed in a half n hour ,4 in the morning comes quick . To early for me to settle so I’ll take advantage of the quietness and read some more of my book. Hoping I can get into it more. Not ready to give up on it yet. Well until then I guess I will get a couple of things done . Have a good night everyone!

And this week is done…

Ahhh…It’s Friday this week is over . car garage appointments done . My son has his bike back . That was interesting following him home after bringing him to grab his bike .It gave me the chance to see how well he handles it. Now I seem to  breath a bit easier when I see him  drive out of the driveway,  he has a lot of confidence.  It was raining a bit Thinking we would have to stop some where but we made it straight through. Now to relax and enjoy the air conditioners this weekend since their predicting temps reaching a 100 and over with humidity, a lot of warnings being posted how to stay cool. I can only speak for myself when I say I will stay in and enjoy reading my book . and watching movies. for the rest of my family whatever they decide to do cant stop them if they want to venture out in it. IMG_8972 (1)This the sky tonight It’s pretty ,everything outside  looks orange from it. It amazes me when this happens.

Good news we finally obtained some rain not a lot but a couple of good downpours that we needed  . The grass everywhere you look is turning brown and everything is withered looking . Ms Abigail  finally looks content  she has been very quiet this week. I think she doesn’t like the air on because she can’t enjoy sitting in the open IMG_8965

window .  Sadly Miss Abigail will have to wait until the weekend is over before she sees an open window. It’s now night and the air outside has become even more humid and heavy feeling. Not good … well time to settle couldn’t sleep last night so I think I will try to get some sleep a bit earlier tonight. Good Night.

 

 

A piece of my heart..

As the sun continues its orientation the clouds replace its position in the evening sky making it bearable to sit in my Adirondack chair perched upon the front porch. The gentle breeze flows through with the water fountains ambient noise in the distance. Out in the lawn is my son and my heart, motionless, as he practices yoga poses after a long day of biking and running.  I sit and watch only to think if I could do this… but my body would regret it afterwards. Luckily, my body was at least capable of blessing me with both of my children. I believe this is what I am here for in this life, even though I wish to be unlike what I am now. Yet, I might have not been blessed with the family I have today as life is a mystery, if taken another path.  But I wouldn’t change it for what I have been gifted to this day. Now, as the light from the sun disappears over the horizon my son decides to head inside for the night, as I now should do the same finishing the blog. Goodnight everyone!

Being sensitive…

Being sensitive is that of a blessing or a curse . I know with my chronic illness it states I’m very sensitive physically yes but emotionally more. Not only have I been told by a doctor but by my family . I know it can get a bit much for them . ..But they bear with me . They ignore me humor me ( hahaha) yes this is a different kind of post today when I show the silliness of my sensitivity . If you read my posts you know how I love my Daytime shows yes … Soap’s I’ve been following a storyline on one of them General Hospital since winter now . It was just the saddest episode in the last two days A 17 yr old boy dies of a brain tumor and oh my was my heart breaking , I know they do this kind of thing all the time but it’s a soap ,they also have miracles at the last minute which I thought would happen but no they didn’t . My luck my son came home at the moment that the episode grew even more sad and intense and I of course teared up like a baby it was horrible …thankfully he humored me and just shook his head with a smirk on his face that says it all and that he’s so good at. Unfortunately as sensitive as I am I get very emotionally involved with my soapy’s , yes but also with movies and books as well . After the episode was over I went around finishing things around the house as he got ready to go to his second job as he was ready to leave , being silly I grabbed him in a bear hug as I am 4’11 and well he is about 5″10 and I said I need to hug you Ive had a dramatic day . He just stood their and I looked up at him and he just looked down at me and said are you done and laughed . I laughed as well and told him he was such a good sport . As he left I yelled I love ya he said love you too mother .What he puts up with .🙂 So are you overly sensitive?
