Awake …

So once again another snowstorm is coming in actually already here and all the Schools and some business are closed tomorrow already. My son has two of his buddies over for the night and so the house is filled with occasional sounds of laughter or razzing each other as guys do . My daughter and I sat at the kitchen table talking and laughing for awhile as she tried to help me sign up for Pinterest …she has no patience when it comes to helping me with this kind of thing . My hubby was in bed because he has work in the morning. Now I’m settled in bed my daughter made a cup of tea and is enjoying it in her place with a book and Miss Abigail. Nights like this as simple as it is are always special to me. ❤️

Waiting ….

it’s 10:30 at night and this is what I’m doing …. playing Bubble Pop on my phone . You know why? because I’m waiting for my son to arrive home safely …. at 9:13he sent me. Text” leaving now” so I was like oh good he let me know and now about an hour later he is not home and it’s about a 20 min drive home from his girlfriends… was coloring but put it away and started playing this game and worrying … now he has texted me “sorry coming ” .. ughh relieved I heard from him since it’s been an hour but why has it been and now I wait some more…. my daughter is out has well I do not like nights like these and I never get use to them. Oh being a mom , a parent is so damn hard. Loving is so hard … you worry so much and it doesn’t .get any easier when they get older. My daughter is home now still waiting for my son. I quest I will go back to my game as I wait ..

Rough day thinking…

My son was able to get in sooner with a sports medicine group to be seen . They took X-rays and then question an ACL issue so an MRI needed so no sports no work until we get results . Well MRI was yesterday and I must say with a bad knee he walked faster and easier then I out of the hospitalI just trailed along behind him letting him do his pace has I did mine . He was not in a good mood . Handling it good is not happening as I thought because today we picked at one another and I had to walk away . Oh if he could only feel my pain and everyday walk in my shoes I told him but he doesn’t get it or doesn’t want to … so it was better to walk away . The Full moon I do not think is helping it’s making us all testy and anxious . So I will say this was not a good night .

Growing up….

Tonight was my sons last high school football game and thier Thanksgiving. Game and would you know tonight was the night he gets an injury and it had to be his knee … he is a runner track and hurdler and I feared this when he said he wanted to play football his last season of high school . He was doing so well yeah some cuts bruises body soreness and was fine but he went down on his knee in the last quarter and was done ,sitting on the ground holding his knee while medics came to the side line to check him out. I wasn’t at the game with my chronic hip issue couldn’t walk where the field was located, too much so I stayed home and listen to it on the radio and my husband sending me texts .

I end up getting a text from my husband stating they where at the hospital to get it checked out I said should I come he said no I will update you hmmm ..I have realized my son didn’t need me any other time I would of rushed anyways to get there but something told me to listen to my husband and wait for updates within an hr he updated just sprained their wrapping it and he needs to ice it rest it elevate it and use crutches for a couple of days if it gets worse see our doctor. Thankfully no pain meds and they where on their way home . Such a strange feeling for me to sit back and wait and calm as well . Funny thing he came hobbling through the door and sat down and said mom I’m starving I see you bought pizza could you make me a plate hmm now that hasn’t changed as he’s laying his head on the table and this I tell you was also after my husband dropped him off at school to grab his car and see his team and coach who where back at his school from the bus . Now he’s in bed and sleeping so I guess maybe he needs me but just little less. I guess that’s an okay thing🙂

Halloween sillyness 

It’s the night before Halloween , in my childhood days we called it cabbage night . Some kids would actually trick or treat not I , my mom would have nothing good to say to the parents who let their kids do this ,she thought it was just being greedy for  extra candy and not all houses where lit up for you to go up to I think they thought the same way  that Halloween night was enough . Then there was the eggs smashing. And toiletpaoer hung through random trees in our teenage yrs when we where  to big to get candy which if I did and got caught my parents would ground me ,  they didn’t think it was funny, The moon earlier looked errie There was clouds around it but I  missed the shot because now it’s just  the moon getting bigger and brighter.  This evening my 17 yr old son and I where driving in his car to our destination  and on the side of the road and a busy one at that , this house put up these three 10ft tall or more like blow up glowing florscent blue ghosts that where swaying back and forth and my son is driving and he is like what the heck ,that’s annoying and distracting for drivers too close to the road.  I couldn’t have agreed more.. then he was like wait it’s Halloween tomorrow I’m like yes it is I said jokingly do you feel old he laughed and said yes no fun anymore we don’t even get to hand candy out . True …where we live off the main road no one comes out that far. So being funny I said I could throw a sheet over me with eye holes and he joined in yeah I can say your my little sister and I’m taking you out trick or treating  it’s funny because I’m 4’11 he said I bet it would work and we started laughing then he said you wouldn’t ? I said it would be fun trying and he laughed and said it’s so possible but your crazy As he said in a nice way we just started laughing again I said to him I could get you some candy he just shook his head with a smirk on his face and then we got quiet and moments later he say again it could work we just laughed all over again. Then after we got to our destination he wanted a coffee so we drove to the famous Dunkin Doughnuts  that is in our part of the globe and he got a coffee I asked for a box of munchkins which are little doughnut balls of assorted flavors pumpkin chocolate, blueberry really good with coffee or milk.and kids love them. When my kuds where in elementary school  for their Halloween parties  they brought them for a treat a big hit. so when I ordered them he laughed I think my son was thinking of our silly conversation earlier of being short oh what timing 🙂 but it was a nice silly moment though❤️

Friday Nights

It’s 11:00 at night after my Sons football games I’m so wide awake and hoarse now🙂 my husband as well it was so fun tonight I forgot how football games where … so going to miss this when him and his friends graduate . We all just cheered and the cool night air with the scent of French fries ifrom the snack bar just made it a perfect night and the fact that my sons  team won 26 to 8 .was even better. Plus he was in his glory when he made the 1st t touch down of the night . He wanted that bad I quote ! so proud we are of our boys. the boys of fall. If you like country Kenny Chesney has a song called the boys of fall and it’s about growing up playing football look it up it’s a great song and video, when my son played youth football they played it  at   the banquet with pics of our boys and it brought tears to my eyes and now when I hear it to this day it still does. Now it’s time for me to settle my son is home and showered and in bed so I think I will do the same . Good night every one.
