Day 4 of still down… for a bit last night I thought I kicked it out of me , and though finally I could get some sleep. NOT! Wide awake because I have been resting so much just watching TVs so just been sitting around during the day . Then the body aches came back and the night was a long one . Woke feeling lousy if I could of slept probably would of been better this morning. .. not helping that it was a mild day and now dropping and the winds have picked up so here we go again with the change of the weather. Today my daughter laid on the couch still not feeling good as well. So as we sipped cups of tea we watched a movie a friend of hers gave her to watch. Must say so different then I thought and the twists in this movie where so many , just when you thought you figured it out ..no another twist came along. . So worth a watch . Now it’s evening and the wind is roaring banging against the house at the moment .I believe Miss Abigail is down with her mom . Earlier she sat in front of me starring at me , nothing like getting starred down by a cat🙄 I had to send a pic to my daughter who was in shock .. she told me I could send her down . I think she went down after on her own. Nooo she’s back! Hahaha. Well I guess it’s time to now try settling in bed…see if I can get into a book …
It’s Daylight savings time and always changing the clocks back never sets well with me at first. You would think getting an extra hour sleep is nice but I think my body feels like I’m over sleeping if that make since and can anyone agree? Happy it’s a sunny day , cold but how it should be this time a year. Keeping myself busy …. okay trying. I’m hoping my son will get to make his 1st call home since starting Basic Training . I hope we counted right. So need to let him know a few things that I think will make him happy . According to his last letter he is happier has a good bunch of friends he can laugh with so of course it will be happy things we tell him. As I stated keeping busy so I decided to make some homemade chicken and rice soup for supper . It’s making the house warm and smells so good. Hubby’s working on his barn .Its just Miss Abigail and I inside as my daughter is at work . Last night as my mind was thinking and my hubby was watching college football as the wind was thrashing around outside banging against the house it had Miss Abigail running around the house looking for a place to hide. My hubby cringing with the thought of the power going out. I focused my mind on adult coloring and started another page . Didn’t get too far but a good start. Well time to finish making my soup . Cross your fingers for me that my son can call. Please..
Once again another Saturday dark and raining the only good thing temps the last two days have been close to 60. According to the forecast winds are suppose to pickup this afternoon bringing a cold front in and hopefully not bringing down wires cannot loose power this weekend we .. I. Need that phone working . If my son can call home I need to talk to him. On Friday it down poured all day but my daughter and I decided to say whatever and ventured out in it . We drove 40 minutes to treat ourselves to a Starbucks holiday coffee. It’s not an often thing to go there just when we want to say whatever to what the world is throwing at us and need a pick me up treat. Then it was home and listening to more rain beating on the house. … anyway the winds are picking up already and my hubby and I are showered ,enjoying our coffee then soon will be heading out for food shopping. Then settling in after and then we will see what this weather brings. I have several books that really need to be read before the library doesn’t let me renew them any longer. So I will try to focus on them unless something on tv catches my attention. Well I guess it’s time to finish getting ready and get things done .
As you see the sky’s cleared the sun came out but the wind came with it. It’s night now and the winds are raging havoc on the trees .My hubby does not like thunderstorms and winds ..high winds, tonight I actually do not it’s wild out there. Trying to settle in bed it was a quiet day did what needed to be done then relaxed started feeling under the weather with so much going around I’m not surprised Plus the rain was bothering my hip I feel blah yes hahaha I do not know how else to subscribe it . So watching tv in bed with my hubby. My son is as now gone to bed , my daughter is out with her boyfriend and probably not happy with me but that is okay…yes she is 23 but if you live under our roof and do not pay rent I have a say to state my opinions about certain things that I know she will regret . I know that’s her problem being 22 Shes an adult this parenting thing is so frusturating thinking it’s time to charge some rent … Honestly I do not want to have to be right and it’s not about her needing me because it’s not ,it’s about her finding a foundation ..growing up getting it together and I getting some sleep and not worrying if she’s home yet, or having to pick the pieces up when she falls apart . I just feel so tired of worrying about everything and it gets me no where. I feel I should be able to be happy I’ve done my job .. Im starting to get use to the idea my youngest is graduating and will be heading to college and I want my daughter to have the confidence the ability to grow like her brother is yes they are such opposites but I think they could learn something from one another …well the wind is not calming down it’s actually worse and so I think I will try to cozy up under the covers and try to sleep so I do not hear the wind and I don’t think myself to an all nighter .. Goodnight Everyone.🙂
This day is going by fast … woke to the sound of the wind doing havoc outside to the trees . It’s making for a cold day. So good day for food shopping and grabbing a coffee . Happy that is done nothing I hate more is food shopping. People are so rude in a grocery store have you ever notice that? I guess it’s probably because they hate it as much as I do 🙂 but I am nice until you hit my carriage … yes this has happened many times. People trying to get around you and you do not notice so instead of saying excuse me they hit my carriage with theirs . Hmm then that’s when I’m done and I want out of there .
Thankfully Home until I walk into complete kitchen mayhem ..I know I had clean when my hubby and I left… dishes everywhere . My son can cook and cook good but lacks the ambition to cleanup after ughh . My daughter just sitting at the table on her phone just getting up .. oh my what have we created🙄 kitchen”s clean groceries put away and now enjoying my coffee, hubby laying down feeling a bit under the weather. So it’s most likely going to be a quiet day ,my son is at the gym and happy for the moment we are so confused ..the friend my hubby and daughter and i thought was dating his ex was over last night hanging with several other boys that where hanging with my son . And my son was getting along great with him … Teenagers …. sadly I can’t ask because my resource comes from a mother of a girl my son is good friends with and I only talk to her on Facebook . So when we are talking Facebook ughh it’s the drama I so try to stay clear of you know the warning signs when the chat starts with so I heard .. yeah that’s when you know it’s time you write back saying oh someone’s at my door gotta go. No I got suckered in heard all these things then she ends it with don’t say anything to your son I’m not sure if he knows or if that’s going on… why! Social media sometimes can be so troubling and now we are all trying to figure it out by the way he acts or what he says this should not be like a puzzle but at the same time I can’t ask him by going off of hear say. Thanks social media . My gut instinct says do not ask so I’m going to go with that , it’s usually is right , I will keep an eye on him. If my instinct tells me to ask then I will…parenting…. well time to get some other things done and hope for a quiet happy day and no tree’s coming down from this wind. 🙂
After I posted my last post which I believe was Monday night , at 2 in the morning I woke suddenly to a pacing husband a non stop shaking whining dog I noticed why the time on the clock was blinking telling me right then we had lost power for a moment ,Then I heard the wind I sat up and that is when my husband filled me in about the most creepiest powerful loudest wind I think I had ever heard….It sounded like a dozen freight trains coming our way and they where going to go right through our house it just wouldn’t stop it was constant whipping. our windows rattled and my husband told me how our tree ‘s were literally bent over so not good when your house is surround by trees so we sat and prayed that the wind would stop but it didn’t my daughter came up from her live in basement checking to see if we knew what was going on followed by her cat who looked as shook up as my dog. My Son slept right through it all he can sleep through anything,.I wish I could of that night. just as we were thanking god that the lights only went out for a minute they went out again and never came back on until this morning ironically at 2 this morning which now is Wed… so at 3 that night my husband started up our generator happy to have it so we could at least keep the furnace and water pump and fridge going . which is more then some have unfortunately. we have been there so many times that we decided if we were going to live where we did we needed one, our section of town is always the last to get power back. so by the time that was set up it was 4 in the morning and my husband and daughter and son had to be up at 6 because they still had work and school…2hours if that of sleep not fun. I stayed home and kept an eye on the generator and animals that just paced half the day . I would like to say a quiet day it was not all of you do know how loud a generator is if not okay it’s very loud…. you can’t help but not hear it.so it has been a very interesting tiring last couple of days. must say though the sunset this evening shining into my living room was beautiful .. here are some pics of the sunset oh!! and the tree that split and fell over the entrance of our driveway which could of been a lot worse.and the debris of trees cluttering the driveway also.
