Be careful what you wish for.

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I had plans for Saturday. I was picking my Mom up and we were going to go see my son Paul. His birthday was February 1 and my Mom's was February 6. Most of you are aware of the situation with my darn kid so needless to say I don't get to spend his birthday with him. Being that he is still my son and I do love him, can't stand him sometimes though, I wanted to see him and so does my Mom. She is 87 now and who knows if he will ever see her outside of prison again. I sure do hope so but that is in Gods hands.

I have been disappointed with the amount of snow that we have gotten this winter. Now don't get me wrong, I am not a snow freak, that wants tons of snow on the ground constantly. But these dustings that we have been getting are nothing but teasers. We had one storm that yielded about 6" and it was beautiful. I like one, maybe 2 good storms a year. But why does it have to fall on a day that I have plans?

It is suppose to start snowing today after midnight. That's good, everyone or most people will be home safe and sound and off the roads. It will snow all day and night Friday with blizzard conditions, heavy snow that is with winds over 50 mph which causes drifting. Sleet and freezing rain(is there a difference) will be mixed in with that during the mid day hours and turning to all snow by late afternoon. 18-24" are expected. Snow will not end until mid day Saturday. My Mom lives north of me and will get it worse than I do. Paul is in Brooklyn CT and will get it way worse than both of us. There is no way on God's green earth that I am going out on Saturday.

It is another week that I was suppose to go and see Paul and didn't go. This happened last weekend also. They predicted snow, so we cancelled the trip. It never snowed until evening and then it was a dusting. It barely covered the cars and was gone in the blink of an eye. I was bummed all day. I am sure that my son was looking for us and when we didn't come he was bummed. I worry when that happens because it puts him in a bad mood. I know he put himself there, but I can't help but feel for him. I am serving every minute of his sentence too.

My homemaker is coming today at 11. I am going to have her follow me to Monro and I am dropping my car off for an oil change. Then I am going to go to Stop and Shop for milk and my bank is in the store. I have to get some money. I had to cancel my debit card. Someone got a hold of the number and ordered things on the web. I am not responsible for it but it is still a pain to have to cancel and wait for a new card. I know the store will be crazy because of the storm.

Well, I guess I am in for the weekend after todays little jaunt. I will get lots of sparking done. I may even get to finish the book that I started before Christmas and haven't picked up since Christmas Eve at my Mom's before going to sleep. I may even watch a few DVD's I purchased the Blind Side a while ago and haven't watched it yet. I let my Mom borrow Dolphin Tales and haven't gotten it back yet. I hope everyone has a safe weekend. If you are in the path of the storm, be safe. If not have a great weekend. What are you doing this weekend?

    We only had a half day of school, so I was able to leave before the roads got too bad. Stopped at store to get bread and eggs. Going to make soup and french toast breakfast casserole for the weekend. I'll burn off the calories by making a snowman!!

    Bonnie I am sorry that you and your mom will not get to see your son. May God bless your next visit so this snow deal doesn't happen again. Please be safe in the storm and I will do the same! Hopefully it won't be as bad as they are saying...... emoticon

    It is better to be safe than sorry. I know we do love our kids, but it does not mean we always like them or more correctly their actions. Sorry you are going to snowed in this weekend, but enjoy the time it will give you for yourself. It was 80 here today and a front is trying to move it but it will stay in the high 70s until next week.

    Darling, I'm so sorry that your plans are spoiled yet again, unfortunately it's best to be safe! You don't want to get out there and then get stranded, I'm sure your son maybe put into a bad mood when you don't make it but he'd most likely want you safe at home than him worry about if you're ok and safe. You know you'll always be a mom and remember that your kids will always make you crazy with what they say or do but you will be the one the expect at the door or to do a favor or whatever it is the want. Just keep that in the back of your mind. I hope that you and your mom will make it out there sooner than later and when you do that you're safe!

Take care and be safe this weekend!

    I'm sorry your plans have been ruined two weeks in a row due to the crazy weather. You have such a great attitude though. The Blind Side is a wonderful movie. Keep some kleenex nearby, it's very touching, and you'll need it.

Enjoy your weekend and be safe!

    You are one of the few people to say they like snow! I would like a nice covering of snow for a change of pace for sure! Be careful in the dicey weather getting all your chores done. I have a cousin in prison. His parents visit him every weekend and holiday. They are closer to him now than when he lived with them! They feel like prison has been good for him. HOpe you get to visit your son soon.

    Awwww, honey, sorry about such a hugely disappointing plan spoiler. We're supposed to go see my parents on Saturday as well and hoping the snow we get through today (it's already started) will not impact our travel on Saturday. I don't think it will.

So sorry, my dear. HUGS HUGS HUGS

    Going to the store myself as LI, NY is going to get hit. I don't know the story of your Son about being in jail, but I feel your pain - although you are not whining! I lost my Son in '96 and miss the fact that he just isn't there anymore! I miss his smile and gentle ways...Blessings to you...

    It's got to be worrisome to have your son in prison....I felt your pain just reading. And, I can remember back to being the (I like to call it) middle of the oreo cookie...worrying about your son and caring for your Mom.

Take it easy on your self and just take one day at a time.
