A great weekend

Yesterday (Saturday) it was my first day by myself. My husband took his parents back home to Puerto Rico. He will be there until Tuesday. The trip went terrific and he’s already enjoying family time at the beach. Meanwhile, my day has been acceptable. I’ve been watching shark-cheesy movies on SyFy channel.

It has been a relaxing Sunday. Took care of some paper works and spending the rest of the day watching my shark movies. I just finished watching the premiere of the last Sharknado #6. It was entertaining and full of fun parts. If this is the last movie like they’re announcing it was a great end to the series. Maybe for next year they’ll decide to create a different another type of cheesy movies. Those movies are great when you feel down.

To the ones who’s still up this late enjoy the rest of the night and for me it’s time to finish a book I already begin reading a few days ago.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt January 21, 2018~Silence

I’m writing this prompt early in the morning the house is in complete silence. I can write a little bit and read at least for another few hours before my husband gets up following by the girls.

However, thinking ahead when June arrives, they will be moving back to Arizona. The house will be in complete silent without them. It will be just me, my husband, and Bruno our dog. The house will seem huge and feel empty.

Thinking of this I’ll prefer having the noise. After losing my dad and my dog I feel sensitive. I love when the girls call me “grandma”, they’re running around, and making messes. Yes, I still have my grandson and a grandbaby, but the girls are the ones living in my house.

Silence or No Silence that’s the real question and my answer is… No Silence.

Day 2- Sunday Family

Day 2: Sunday Family

The weekend went fast I’m already tired of been cleaning the house and doing laundry. My youngest son went back to College. He was here for the past four days and he left early. He is at 5 ½ hours from home and he has homework to do. Now, I will not see him until Thanksgiving.

My two older children they live here in town and I don’t see them frequently either. They have their jobs, their home, and kids to take care of.

I will love to have a Sunday Family where every week we will cook, sit at the table and discuss work.  Also, spending some time together with them, but every time I suggested the idea they tell me is impossible. They always have something to do.

I just tell them why not? The Reagan’s family does it and they have busy lives. They are a family of cops and they always get together at the dinner table every Sunday. The point is it’s just a TV show “Blue Bloods” starring Tom Selleck and Donny Walhberg.

My oldest son looks at me and asked who the family is? Are they from your work?

No, they are TV characters from one of my favorite shows.

Oh, Mom please it’s just a TV show and it’s not real, he replied.

Yes, you’re right and I like to dream. We get together on special occasions or the holidays, but I would like more.

One day I will have my family Sunday, all my children together every week. Just have family time. I don’t need the entire day, I just need an hour. I think that’s enough.

Oh, I think I’m feeling the empty nest.

NaBloPoMo—National Blog Post Month

This weekend we have been busy moving my youngest son back to college this will be his last year. I always get sad when he leaves. He’s my youngest of three and the house will be quiet. For the past two months I have been enjoying his charm and I love to cook for him because he loves everything that I make.

His small apartment is located on campus and this year he decides not to have a roommate. He wants to leave the second bedroom for us to visit. I did my magic and made his apartment comfy. A few rugs, a small table with a lamp, curtains, accessories for his bathroom, pictures frames, new sheets for his room, and a fully refrigerated now his apartment looks perfect.

My husband is making breakfast and we will be leaving soon. We have a long drive. My heart is pounding and I know I should be used to this feeling. This is my son third year and it will be his last. He’s graduating in 2015. Still, as a mom I will miss him and I can’t wait for him to visit again.

My tears have started already. I will miss his charm, his smile, and his joke. He was my companion during the summer and the kids will miss him too. He is the fun uncle.

To my Jonathan I love you and I’m proud of you. See you soon and keep the good work. I can’t wait for your graduation.

With tears in my eyes, I will be heading to my home and what some people call an empty nest.
