Soon!

Good morning it’s a quiet Tuesday one .. after waking up at 7:00 the aroma of coffee found its way to me . I dragged myself to the shower but not before starting a load of laundry my husband had loaded in the washing machine ..I blasted the hot water since it’s so cold trying to warm up . Finally finding my way to the kitchen grabbing some coffee was so worth every sip.Miss Abigail is already in her chair sleeping away again . Oh this house is quiet but going to be even quieter by Friday when my hubby flys out to my Son for his Basic Training graduation I’ve mentioned this in past posts ,I’m not going can not fly or do the long distance walking so he will video and get a lot of pictures. The graduation isn’t until next Wed with visiting the base the day before so actually he’s flying out Saturday early morning with his mom who got them a room by the airport on Friday night so she wouldn’t have to to do an hr and a half ride to the airport for a 8:00am flight sadly they will be hanging around in a hotel from Sat to Tues because of finding a flight so close to my sons graduation . Then after graduation they will head to the airport and fly home with him . It will be a long day for them they should arrive home around 1or 2 in the morning.. I will stay up to at least give my son a hug and then let him head to bed . And then catchup with him as much as possible until his friends get ahold of him. They have already started texting me asking when he will be home …… so this will be interesting 🙂. It’s only 12 days here then he flys back out again but it’s ok I can at least have him home for Christmas !

I have been slowly decluttering the house .. my daughter will help me when my hubby is away which will keep my mind busy . Yes my mind (hahaha) I think too much . And so decluttering and freshening up his bedding will keep me busy . Yes I have been thinking and what timing as I’m writing this post I’m watching the morning local show while enjoying my coffee their talking about first holidays with your adult kids coming home from college , moving out military etc ..stating how when they come home it will be different for them and the parents as well.. The day they first walked out the door on their own they became adults and started their new life and so they will be different and we will be different as well ..So how we treated them before will change a bit yes their still our kids but their adults, seen a different world so transitioning to coming home will be however we make it but to respect there difference as well as they should respect our difference of how we as parents have adapted to them not being here But being adults doesn’t mean they will not need us they will. But in a more supportive way of letting them tell you how they feel if it’s been hard then guide them with ideas to make it more easier but teaching them , telling them is no longer our job. It’s their life. and we want them to want .. to look forward to coming home.Ok I must say listening to this has helped a lot because that is what I’ve been thinking about so much as the time has come closer to my son coming home and him coming home from Basic Training he will be different. And that could be a good thing . Oh I love him but he needed some help with growing up and hopefully taming his wild ways ..not a bad wild but a young wild .. so I will step back see how he is when he walks though the door and then trend carefully seeing the difference in him. My daughter growing into an adult was so different and easy she didn’t move away but went in a separate part of our house and just transitioned so much better I think she was born an adult ) hahaha) being a teenager was hard for her she always acted older then her peers . Was better around adults so being adult she has flourished and I’m proud of her. . So yes we will see . I’ll keep you posted.

Rainy Sunday..

It’s a cold rainy Sunday. Not complaining better then the ice and snow they first predicted. So just having a very lazy day , slept in then dragged myself to the shower and finally made it to the kitchen for my morning coffee.. at this point I think I need several to get me out of this blah feeling . My joints hurt which is always the case when it rains ..so it’s not a myth. Maybe do some things around here or not.. 🙄 need to order some gifts online then I may just Adult color or read. Hoping my son calls today . He did state on Thanksgiving he may have one more phone call left before Basic Training Graduation . I hope so .. I wrote a letter the weekend after Thanksgiving I’m thinking he may have just received it . No letters from him because he will be so busy but he did state keep the letters coming . Sadly with how it takes so long for him to get them I keep holding back to send one more out . It will be graduation by the time he gets it , if he even gets it I did send my congrats in the last letter since I will not be able to fly out to see him graduate my hubby will be there . He understands . I will stay back and with the help of my daughter in between her work schedule she will help me wash his bedding again to freshen it up . Dust his room . And help me stock up for food that he likes plus Christmas Eve and Christmas Day food. That will keep my mind busy well maybe…. I know I ll be thinking of him constantly that day with a tear in my eye one for not being there with him and second because I am so proud of him. I do miss writing to him . Love writing it felt good. Hopefully when he goes back for his next training it’s letters only instead of cellphones even though being only a text away would be nicer .I’m afraid he will get wrapped up with his friends and use his texting time on his friends….. he is only 18 . Friends are so important at that age , even though his letters he’s been so humble . Will see. Hubby’s snoozing on the couch while waiting for his team to play .. Sunday Football . My daughters with her boyfriend then work this afternoon. Late but short shift. Miss Abigail is sleeping away in our bean bag chair oh to be a cat ,she makes sleeping look so nice. Well time to do a few things so I can sit back down and color or read .

Snowy Night!

It’s the first snowy night of the season . It started around 7 this evening and now at 11:30 it’s going strong . Everything covered in white . Usually I would be checking the tv every hour for a school cancellation . Instead it’s a new season , new chapter and instead I’m laying in bed with the house all dark and locked up for the night, my daughter is home with Miss Abigail . So quiet as I lay in bed keeping warm while writing a letter by flashlight .. yes a new one for me (hahaha) didn’t want to keep the light on as my hubby is sleeping and yes I could of went into another part of the house but preferred my warm bed. And wanted to write my son a letter while I had things to write about to him. It was actually kind of fun . Yeah doesn’t take much to make me happy . Gave me a feeling of Deja vu when I was younger and knew I should of been sleeping but was writing letters to my friends . And if my mom saw the light on she would tell me to go to bed. Good ol days… didn’t think so back then, but what we learn as we get older.well letter is done and no more worries of wondering about school cancellations. So time to get some sleep and see how much white stuff there is in the morning. Good night!

Quiet weekend..

It’s Monday Veterans Day well its observed today so my hubby is off along with other State and Federal Jobs . It’s a a long weekend but quiet morning while my hubby is helping a neighbor for a bit , my daughter down in her place sleeping away and I enjoying a cup of coffee after deciding it was time to get up jump in the shower . The holiday weekend was spent quietly and cozy after Saturday’s food shopping and a ride with my hubby . The weekend kept getting colder so we spent it inside my hubby relaxing on the couch as we enjoyed watching movies and football , while I also finished reading the book I had started. I think my hubby and I also thinking a lot about our son .. being Veterans Day and him at Basic Training . I miss him … had to get that out 😥 he gets to call home today so we are so excited . They said 1300 but didn’t say their time or ours which we are a hour ahead of him so between 1:00 .. 2:00 I ll wait all day it’s okay . I want to hear his voice. I’ll start my next book I have ready to read . Just finished Nicholas Sparks newest novel . Every Breath , it was really good but so sad . I think all his books are for the most part but such a good read. Yesterday being so cold I curled up in my chair with a blanket a hot cup of tea and read . And read .. and read ..(hahaha) when I looked up from my book towards my hubby laying on the couch staring at me I laughed at his expression , he just looked at me in awe . I said what ? He said wow you have been reading for hours . I wish he would read .. he does but not a book well not very often . I can read all day or night if it’s really good. Well I guess I will grab a bit more coffee catch some news then do a few things around the house and wait for that call.

A long weekend!

A three day weekend is here! Monday’s a holiday, Veterans Day . Thinking and thanking all that have served and are serving and who will be serving, I state the last part thinking of my son who this Veterans Day is in Basic Training in Missouri . Missing him but so proud ❤️

It’s Saturday night and the wind is just roaring out there .. for one moment tonight we heard a bang or weird thunk and looked outside to see if something hit the house . But saw nothing unusual …for all we know it was Miss Abigail who has been running around this house all night , she probably jumped up on something in the back rooms. Today was food shopping day and it was crazy busy ..dodging people in every isle .My husband and I get home and realize we missed a few amount of items on our list due to people being so impatient 🙄waiting for you to move out of their way while your grabbing what we need, giving up and moving on to our next items on the list telling yourself will go back and grab what we miss but forget to and head to the checkout… so I’ll be going back before this weekend is over. After we came home put the groceries away and then went for a ride and grabbed some Starbucks lattes . Hooked on the Gingerbread flavor so good and comforting. My hubby enjoyed a Peppermint Mocha flavor. By the time we arrived homely hubby hitting every back road that headed home (loves them) it was just about dark out. We had some supper and now just settled in our bedroom under our covers keeping warm. Watching tv and still listening to the wind roaring . . I was going to try and finish reading my book but I think soon I’ll just call it a night. Tomorrow will be even colder out . So will probably just hang inside watch football and I’ll read my book . Earlier I got a notification that the SITs would be given a chance to call home on Monday at a time they stated so to be by our phones so my husband and I are looking forward to hearing from our son. I hope he has a decent amount of time to talk but will take whatever we can get . I received two letters from him on Friday and he said he received two of my letters so far .I was happy to hear that but wonder where the others are .. floating around somewhere. I am enjoying writing. It’s nice to write letters so miss this . That’s why I think I’m going to need to start that journal soon. I guess it’s time to get off here and say some prayers and get some sleep . Good night everyone.

Late morning..

It’s a Wednesday day morning already and a bright sunny one at that. After a weekend of no phone call from our son ..on Monday night around 8:00 my hubby and I decided to settle in our bedroom, watch our shows so shutting down the the lights locking up . My hubby headed to the bedroom to turn on the tv while I put some dishes that were lingering around after supper in the dishwasher ..the phone rang as I looked at the ID it showed a out of State number thinking oh a tell-a call … we get so many I was about to just let it ring but something in me told me to answer it and so with that I did my straight forward hello ready to tell whoever it was I was not interested .. when on the other line I heard a familiar voice “hi mom ” and I just melted (hahaha) I said Seth is that you he said yes and started to choke up with emotion my hubby heard me say his name and came running out . Etc etc after that it’s personal but with that said we got our first call I am so happy my gut feeling said answer . He is doing really good but misses us and home. Sadly the base he is at it’s an every two week phone call home , just so happy tho that we got the chance to talk to him. Now as I stated it’s Wed and it will be a day of things around the house except for one errand out to the post office .Then home to watch the tv shows I recorded , after staying up till 1. reading my book knowing I should of put it down earlier and got some sleep I couldn’t .. it is so good and I want to know the ending. So that took up my evening as we watched the election polls which I will not get into, I do not talk politics on line or with others . Sorry , Enjoying my late morning coffee and breakfast and Miss Abigail getting into everything like a little kid. Its a slow start to the day but that’s okay nothing to demanding to attend to but it’s time to get this day going any how. Hope everyone has a good day.

Reading and more reading…

Good Morning it’s Monday already , every other day seems to be the weather pattern with rain and sun . So yes it’s going to be another day of rain. Last night I read my book until I couldn’t keep my eyes open and my mind cleared with all the negative thoughts . Never getting the phone call I had so we all had so hoped to get from my son. I do not understand why I believe it’s been 3 weeks .. plus more . I miss him so much but it’s more just letting him know how much I believe in him and how proud I am of him since he isn’t receiving my letters.. it’s sad when your daughter writes and has to explain this and I relay that message through her letters how I feel . I am now almost done with my book . I’m sure I’ll finish it today. Trying to stay low until I can get a flu shot with so many sick . I’ll just run to the post office and then do things around here. Christmas shopping is basically online and gift cards . My kids are easy enough now that their older. I believe honestly it shouldn’t be so much about things but more about the people in our lives . Okay time to start my day…
