31 July 2015

It's 730pm and the boys just left my place. They'll be officially "on the road" about midnight but for my purposes, they're on their way. The house is quiet and doesn't smell as much like boy, which is weird. I'll spend part of the weekend CLEANING to get my house back in order but it's not all that bad, really. I have to reorganize, vacuum, clean the bathroom and stuff. On the other hand, I can now go from my bedroom to my kitchen for coffee without my robe on without worrying about it. Sending prayers to keep them safe, healthy and out of trouble. And that they get a good job immediately once in Denver.

Walking over to the HOA meeting in a few minutes to meet my neighbors and see what their vision is for our neighborhood. Hoping we have a decent turn out. It's been kind of....abandoned...by the old guard. Most of them are gone and the one that's left wants nothing to do with it so I think we're on our own to rebuild which could be very good. Either way, I get to walk the neighborhood. And it's a beautiful night.

Happy Friday buddies.

One more day with my boy before he leaves my nest (again) to start his adventure. They're only half packed and he still needs a haircut but I do have a new-to-me dryer now (all delivered and installed, old one taken away for $150 total-yeah!) so I can at least send him off with clean clothes. I walked the neighborhood last night for the first time in quite a while which was nice. Then I pulled weeds in half my yard, making a muddy mess of my shoes since it had rained but at least my flowers (what's left of them) aren't choking so bad anymore. I still need to get to the rest of them today and mow the darn grass. I'm still reclaiming my house but a lot of it will wait until the weekend after they've gone. No sense in mopping through when I have 2 guys back and forth bringing the outside in. So for today and tomorrow, I get to be Momma in between required work stuff. I may not get the chance for a while so I'm focused on enjoying and appreciating the man my son is becoming. It'll be interesting watching him continue to grow, even if it's not in the same town or state. Happy Friday Eve, buddies.

Forewarning: this is long :) I'm back. House/pet-sitting is done and I'm back home. My boy is getting ready to move to Colorado in 2 days so we're still doing laundry and packing him up. I had gained 5 over the 3 weeks (my birthday and party was lumped in there so I'm not really shocked) and back down 2 since Monday. Looking for a new-to-me dryer since my heating element went kapooey the other day (with sheets in it, yay) and have a contact with someone for a replacement for $130 about 10 miles away. Should be able to go see it today and see if it works for what I'm looking for. It's kinda been a weird week. Last Friday had an issue with the car and almost got stuck out on International Drive (about 35 minutes from my house). I was able to get a jump and get home. Saturday had it looked at and not only was the battery toast, the alternator was and had killed it. $466 and 4 hours later, my car is feeling better and I'm repeating "this is what emergency funds are for." Also found out BF was in a car accident same evening (everyone is ok but other driver didn't have insurance or her drivers license with her?!?). Monday the dryer died. I'm taking it all pretty "in stride" since I do have the money for it, it's just an inconvenience. I got an extra year out of it (got it from my mom for free when I moved into the house last year).
I need to get groceries for me and the boys today for the week and what they need for traveling. I really want to cut my grass but it's been raining so maybe today I can get to it. Seems like there's a lot I want to get done today but timing is going to be interesting. Made a date with my son for dinner and a haircut for tonight as well.
Life is good and only gets better. My people are safe and love me, I'm healthy and have a great job. I have all I need and most of what I want. What else can you ask for? Have a great day, buddies.

Happy Saturday #1! Up early, coffee's on, full day ahead. Groceries, finish the lawn, help a friend redo her resume and a nap are on the agenda for the day. I'll fill it in with other stuff but that's what I got so far. ;)

Living with others and staying within your food plan is a challenge. My son is staying at my house for a month although I'll be back and forth house-sitting. They're making French toast with ice cream this morning. Thankfully I'm not dying for it and can turn it down but it's more challenging when you have other people live with you. BF, for example, apparently likes twinkies, etc. I'll have to work with that at some point if/when we get more serious and figure out a way that I won't eat them all. It's not about the food, it's about my relationship with it. Other people have normal relationships with food and can eat SOME without eating it all. I'm still working on that lol.

I hope your Saturday #1 is going well for you. Enjoy your day!
