My weekend was….
In a good way.
Saturday, Pookah woke up at o’dark 30 and I lamented( as I always do) on why is it I never get to sleep past 6 am on a Saturday? And Cdub just rolls over????When did it become my duty to wake up with the boy? I guess when he was still attached to the breast..
Cdub got it in his head that he was going to MAKE himself a man cave since I won’t let him have the biggest bedroom for his dream pool table. He took over what is supposed to be the formal living room. It had been serving as a playroom/sitting room for me. But the former owners had painted one wall red in there and it bothered me. I don’t do bright crayola colors on my walls well, which is one of the many reasons I haven’t quite felt at home in this house. We need to paint. THE WHOLE HOUSE. All of this to say that CDub had me at Home Depot at 9 am picking out paint colors.
After much bickering, we chose a pretty grey color from Behr called Manhattan Mist. It’s so pretty! And it had primer in the paint so it wasn’t so hard to get rid of the red. Pookah helped of course.
Sunday was more of the same, just me rearranging furniture in the den and Cdub’s man cave and plotting on a TV for black Friday. And grocery shopping and searching for a gluten free pizza Pookah just had to have, and rug shopping, and mopping and dusting and washing clothes and ….you get it. All of the wifey/mommy duties while folks watched football and played on the ipad( side eye to the men folks in this house!)
Now it’s Monday, and thank GOD it’s a short week. I’m kind of giddy about it because this is the first time in 13 years that I have NO PARTS of working a Thanksgiving weekend. No holiday, no Black Friday, no NOTHING.
I said at the beginning of the year, my goal was to NOT work another holiday. Thoughts are things!
Ain’t God good?
