Watch and Roll

It’s another gloomy Saturday,
all filled with brown and grey ~
what little snow we did receive
has long since melted all away.
I would bury myself
deep within my hole
not today, I am needed
to cheer the bowling team
while they ‘roll’.
It’s a tournament ~
a noisy affair
with lots of whooping and craziness galore
the sound of balls slamming into pins
constantly rolling along the floor.
Yes, it will be fun
I am prepared to have a wild
rousing good time
I watch my son with a great big smile
crossing fingers
for all of those much needed strikes!

a quickie Howdy Doo

Howdy Doo Y’all –

I wanted to let you in on a little excitement!  I am very thrilled and I am about to burst……. Jordan is coming home this weekend!!!!!!  In less than two days…..

He is taking the bus home on Friday afternoon. I pick him up at night around 10ish.  He will be here through Monday and busing it back to campus on Tuesday.  Monday is Columbus Day (this is a national holiday in the USofA) and school takes a mid-term break.  He is primarily here to work at the amusement park – Six Flags Great America – where he labored this past summer.  They have a big Halloween thingamajig where they decorate the park with scary ghouls, add a few haunted houses and several dozen ‘extra employees’ to walk around the park in makeup and costume.  Their ghoul – oops, meant goal – is to scare the pants off the park patrons.  My son will be amidst all of the activity with a camera – video taping the ‘going’s on’.

Jordan will be staying with Pee and I.  Peyton will be out-of-town with his dad and step mom, visiting his step sister at her university.  I am not certain what Pee will do.  I am planning on taking her vroom in the car to pick him up.  If I know my girl, she will cry, and give him lots of kisses.  She will then give him the cold shoulder (he is the one that left her) and when all is said and done, she will be honky dory.  (Translation:  He takes her for a walk, gives her a boney, some tum tum and she gets first dibs on ‘her’ side of ‘her’ bed.).  I have not seen Jordan since mid-August, the longest I have ever been parted from either of one my children.  We have texted, emailed and Skyped, but I have not been able to hug him and this I miss terribly.  I am hoping I do not squeeze him to bits:)

On a separate, yet related note, I realize I have been a bit distant on my reader. For the past three weeks, I have been preparing for the momentous arrival, which means I have been cooking.  I made chili, chicken soup, Buffalo Mac & Cheese (his 3 faves), pulled pork carnitas and pumpkin oatmeal.  I have had my trusty assistant tasting, I mean assisting – Peyton – who has indulged in all of the goodies.  My freezer is filled to the brim.

I really have no big plans for the weekend except spend every second I can with Jordan – that is when he is not working.  When he is working, I will be cooking – I still need to make my meatloaf, turkey burgers and granola.  I will also shop for whatever it is he needs to take back to school.

I will keep in touch – I have so much on my mind – much to write.  I will also take photos!  I can’t help but wonder if Jordan has grown a bit more. (I grew an inch my freshman year in college.)  I can tell already he has matured some, BUT I can bet all of his new-found maturity will be left at school – he is coming to stay with mom so why bother bringing it home?

Until I type again…….which will be soon……. Kimberly xx

oh – here are a few pics….

first drive

all adjustments made

eyes wide, grip tight, nervous smile

power speaks volumes

a calming and loving voice

in a parking lot we go…


behind the wheel
