late night talks

How was the 4th of July for everyone?  I am glad it is over for my dog's sake, it seems like the fireworks have stopped, so her anxiety level is back to normal.  I love Independence Day and I love fireworks too, but seeing what they do to some animals is so sad.  My other two dogs could care less though.  They acted like nothing was going on, or it was normal.
Josh and I have just been hanging out with my mom and dad.  Josh got tired of shopping with my mom, so he has been staying with my dad.  It seems to be going ok.  My mom is a slow shopper, she always has been.  It takes her hours to grocery shop, so I go with her.
Josh and I stayed up until 4:30AM the other night just talking about stuff.  We usually have these talks in the summer in the daytime, but since we are never alone, we stayed up one night talking.  I enjoy our talks.  He is such a smart kid.
I am meeting up with my friends again on Tuesday for lunch.  I am excited to see them.  One of the girls will be working in another building this year, so we will not see her.  I am going to miss her.
It seems like last I wrote Dallas shootings have happened, Nice France and the Turkey military coup.  The world has gone crazy.  It is so sad to watch.
Josh and I just have a few more weeks before school starts.  We have a lot to get in and Josh will be turning 18 years old on August 4th.  I know some of you who read this blog have known me his whole life from back in the website days.  I cannot believe how fast time flies.  This will be his senior year, I am not sure what his plans are after graduation.  He had planned to go to college, but he has really had a bad experience with the school district here and has lost all confidence in himself.  He has time to figure things out though.
Have a nice week, it is going to be hot here next week.  I am going to be wishing I was in my pool.

My dog is so scared of fireworks and they seem to go on for days! It's great that you and your son can talk together like that. I hope he will find the direction he wants by graduation. I hope you are enjoying your summer.

Wow! Hard to believe Josh is turning 18 already!! And a senior in HS too.. My last dog (passed away years ago at the age of 19) was a big black Lab who used to scare any person in uniform (she was an excellent watch dog) and was afraid of only two things. LOL!! Thunderstorms and fireworks. We had to repair our front screen door many times because she would run straight through during them. Hugs, my friend.

Hi Lori! I can't believe Josh is 18! Time does fly by! Way too fast! I love watching professional fireworks, but these loud crazy things neighbors do, ugh! Hope you have a good week my friend!

Hi Lori, So hard to believe that Josh is 18! Time is going by so fast too. That's awesome that you both stayed up late and talked about stuff. It's so important to communicate with each other. Even if it's just about silly stuff. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs

Hi Lori. I cannot believe that Josh is almost 18! My goodness, I remember when he was just a little boy. One of my dogs really freaks out about fireworks too. My youngest one doesn't care in the least and my oldest one is deaf, so she can't hear them anymore. :p I hope you are staying cool. It's been super hot here. Big hugs!
