Headed out a bit early with my daughter her car needed an old change . So off to dealership she bought it from . I’m happy she has such great service ,where I bought mine from it’s horrible , all we had to do was drive into the open bay they asked what was needed and 20 mins later we where off to enjoy some lunch . As you see I tried to go as healthy as I could being that yes it was eating out.. so soup and a salad no bread… it was really good and light . Now our next stop was not as healthy.. sorry but not sorry.. we both enjoyed a Carmel chocolate chip macchiato 🤷🏻♀️have to always get our coffee when we are near a Starbucks … okay actually any coffee place when we are out (hahaha) not a complete day out with my daughter if there is no coffee involved. After we hit the Walmart and grabbed a few things that where needed and I found a cute blouse I couldn’t let go of🙂
On a different note. We headed to this Big Y gas station our local store around our area has gas stations you can get a discount if you have their card. I went in with her to pay to grab a water. And… there was my daughters ex boyfriend. Can you say awkward! Well not for me but for my daughter. She did pretty good I must say.. he did as well a bit surprised when we walked in he said hi to me first and they talked a bit but sadly I could see his eyes tear up … the hopeless try to make everyone happy person open her mouth and asked if he was doing okay and he started to tell us … okay this guy is such a loss soul . He’s never been very happy had a hard childhood so him with a relationship is hard but other then that he’s really a good person and means well but him and my daughter were just not good for one another. He is still friends with my son and I on Facebook . My son likes the guy and felt bad for him . So once again my mouth opened and I said if he ever wanted someone to talk to message me because well the line behind us was picking up and we had to let him get back to work . Okay the look on my daughters face was not pretty…. we arrive at her car and she said oh mom why did you tell him that? And you know he won’t talk to you.. okay I’m fine with that but I just had to offer ..sadly it’s who I am . Does it get me in trouble at times yes .. My heart kind of breaks for him . I feel bad for people who are not happy with their life .. I know not my place so .. so be it I put it out there and if he does I will not mind being an ear for him. On our way home it was a bit quiet but she got over it and all was good. Now my house is filled with chatty laughing guys . A beautiful sound . My son arrived home with a friend so their cooking up food and the house is not quiet. Oh how I will miss this when he is at college… I’m trying to line my self up with things to do friends to see and talk to it will all come together I’m sure .
Been a very laid back Friday! Not complaining whatsoever! I woke to a bright sunny day . Grabbed a quick shower then Headed straight to the coffee pot. It was Bill day and not wanting to jump into it I turned on the Wendy Show and enjoyed some laughter with my coffee. I really love her humor . Minutes later my son found his way to the kitchen stating he was going for a ride on his bike . I was happy it freed up my car I have been generously sharing with him all summer. I told him to lockup when he left I was heading in to town to do some errands. Well… when the the turn arrived came that heads into town , last minute I decided I would keep going straight. I wasn’t ready to run those errands as well . It felt nice to be out of the house in my car no rush to get back home I decided to just drive .., I turned the radio up and just drove and thinked . It was nice to be alone enjoying what I like to do driving and listening to music. I use to do it all the time … but became too logical … where would I go how much gas I was wasting, but today I let the logic fly out the open car window . And enjoyed. Such a simple a pleasure why should I take that away . My kids are grown I really have no reason to rush home so why not. And no if your thinking I’m not having a mid life crises. (Hahaha) I just wanted some “me time” outside of the house . After two and a half hours later with postoffice and bank run accomplished , I arrived home . Hubby home from work . Fridays is his early day , my son cooking himself food , my daughter getting ready for work all was well . No one missed me. It was a nice feeling. Now it’s already 9 at night . Hubby watching baseball . I’m just writing. And it’s totally dark out now. Feeling content . With that I guess I will settle. Have a great night everyone🙂
My happy place for a bit today. 🙂Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!
After all the strange things the day before …mess up at the bank , Post Office, the day went on as usual .. making supper . Etc etc .. then my son called all shook saying how the interview didn’t look good .. I try to reassure him to not think about it . It sounded like it went well to me of what he had told me . Its the Military part that had him shook and the look I guess they gave him about possible training days in the summer. …will see. The afternoon turned into evening and both my my kids ate supper at home then my hubby and daughter settled on the couch while I in my chair watching tv an old show that plays every night . MASH anyone remember this ? My daughter doesn’t care for it ,thinks it’s old .. and doesn’t see how my hubby and I find the humor in it .My son in his room. Then 8:30 came and my son was craving PB&J but someone kept the jelly out instead of putting it back in the fridge they put it in the cupboard and it went bad .. hmm my son said not him but I know better(haha) I said I want an ice cream at McDonalds yes a Sm and quick one. My daughter jumped up I want one but I do not want to drive ,my hubby was like I have to get some sleep. My son spoke up said I’ll drive and get some Jelly at the market … off we went . It was nice being with my two kids it’s been awhile . Even if it was only moments .. we smalled talked.. laughed . It was nice . Now about the ice cream a bad choice but it doesn’t happen often and It was worth the calories to be with both kids . After we drove in to the driveway we stood outside looking around for possible animals roaming around in the night woods .all we saw was a possum scurrying away deeper into the woods away from us . Thankfully he didn’t hiss which they do when their caught off guard. I think the wild animal was inside running up and down the hallway as we entered the kitchen… yes Miss Abigail wondering where we went. Then the moments were over we all went to our bedroom to settle into some sleep my hubby already snoring away . I fell asleep to the sound of my son laughing and talking whether he was on his game or phone it was a nice sound to drift off to sleep too. And yes he got his jelly🙂
Tonight my dear friend and I were chatting ,work has her down . She’s tired and just feeling over whelmed . So we were chatting and she had asked if I had heard from my son . I replied with a no .. no letters only the phone call on Thanksgiving . I went on telling her I believe he’s busy with finishing what he needs to do to graduate from Basic and come home for Christmas in three weeks. I went on by saying I miss his letters and writing to him . I sent one out the weekend after Thanksgiving which he probably just got this week . I want to send him another but afraid that as soon as I drop it in the mail they’ll say no more letters . I’m hoping he sends me something soon or a phone call before graduation. I know it’s only been a week from hearing from him but for some reason it seems longer then that. Oh the mother in me… so my friend and I went on chatting and she said your going to miss writing letters I know you enjoyed it . Oh yes I did indeed . It was a nice change of pace from typing , it was comforting. I joked and said I may have to write to you followed with a laugh … she is about three towns over so about an hour away but our life’s are in different directions so we do not see each other as much as we like. She paused and I asked are you still there? She responded with a yes but with a different tone . I wondered … she went on , you know you laughed but honestly that isn’t such a bad idea. I’m Like what? She says us writing letters back and forth. Why not I think that would be fun and she stated you did say they say it’s good for the mind . I thought about it and said are you serious ? I’m in if you really are . It could be therapeutic lol . For the first time through our chat tonight she was sounding more up beat . Yes she said defiantly let’s do it . It would be a good way to empty our heads and look forward to something in the mail beside bills ( hahaha) okay then we will . We explained no time limit on replying or how short or long. And we could be as creative as we wanted. She said this will be fun bringing back something people really do not do much of anymore . Sending handwritten letters in the mail. As we ended our conversation we were both excited to try this . I hope this works out. It would defiantly be something positive to do . Since lately it doesn’t seem like a lot of positive things in the world .Tomorrow I’ll go into town and see if they even sell stationary anymore and if not at least some nice paper. Excited about this . Hope it’s what we are hoping it will be like. I’ll keep you posted.
