Monday Morning Thoughts

My first weekend off was OK.

Of course, I didn’t get to sleep in at all, but we’ll have to negotiate that later.

Saturday, I had to color, wash and retwist my locs.  That, my friends is a process.  it’s longer and its thick.  So getting it to dry is just……

So, Pookah and I basically stayed in most of the day. C-Dub went to play golf in the afternoon since he could. Pookah and I just lounged on the couch until I decided that we needed to get out of the house.  Why I thought Walmart was a good idea….I don’t know.


I meant to get up and go to church.


But since we missed that, I made a big breakfast and we chilled.

I cleaned, washed clothes, thought about going to see Breaking Dawn, and then just chose to continue to sit around.

Because I could.

After Pookah woke up from  his nap, we went to the park and I took a few photos.  Well, a lot of photos. Still editing those. But here is one.


Then we went to dinner, and Pookah actually behaved himself.  Wow.

Came home, bickered with the hubby.

Put Pookah to bed.

And decided to have a “talk” with C-Dub.

That didn’t go well.

I didn’t yell, he didn’t yell.

But, it didn’t go well.

And that’s all I’m going to say on that.


How was your weekend?

    At least no one yelled that’s a good thing. In my home we yell and cuss and it’s usually not a good thing. Try again another day. Love the pics and hope you get use to the weekends soon.

    I’ve been reading your blog as a lurker for several months now because my husband and I are TTC and I wanted to start reading more mommy/wife bloggers to get a feel for how motherhood can be. But I am curious and I don’t know you at all but from what I am learning about you from your blogging is both eye opening and realistic but also makes me a little sad. It seems to be a struggle to balance motherhood and being a wife. You talk about the fun you have with your son (who is gorgeous BTW) but it doesn’t seem like it’s so much fun in your marriage. Is that what I have to look forward to?

    At any rate, thanks for sharing a piece of your life with us. You are very brave to do so.

      I think the problem is that we are still adjusting to our new roles as parents and what that means to our other roles as husband and wife. It’s been a BIG BIG adjustment . I don’t think we were as prepared as we should have been for the big role change. Plus, me working nights/weekends was a big adjustment too. But I think that we are slowly coming around. It’s just a loooooonng process. Don’t be discouraged! Communication is key. We really haven’t been communicating well, but we’re working on that too. 🙂

    Whoo hoo for a weekend off. I love that you had the choice to actually lay around on the couch. IMO talking minus the yelling is still a step in the right direction. Things that need to get said are always better than things left festering and unsaid, ya know?

    This weekend was a busy one. The kids had their last day of school before the Thanksgiving holiday, do we had to shop for more groceries for snacks and such. Preparations for Thanksgiving day itself coupled with random browsing on the internet for recipes has left me trained.

    Hugs and Mocha,

    If you got what you needed to off your chest AND there was no yelling I consider it a good talk, at least everyone knows how the other is feeling/thinking. That little guy is getting so much more handsome w every shot.
    Hope you get used to having your weekends back soon! I tried to be bum this weekend, didn’t work but I got some studying in 😉

    This weekend I ran around like a chicken with no head. I hate shopping for ingredients for Thanksgiving, everyone has the same idea I have. Both days I was in two grocery stores, and both trips my daughter nursed and fell asleep–leaving me to hold her during our trip.

    I also had to was my locks as well, didn’t get around to doing that until today. Like always, it takes all day to dry.

    Marriage, marriage, marriage. As long as no yelling was involved it was successful. I have often pondered about writing about the awful time in my marriage when we were still figuring out our roles but I don’t know if I am ready to air all of that laundry. That being said, I think you are helping others who are going through the same thing. I’ve walked that and trust me it gets better, but lawd in the meantime. The first step for us was to stop the yelling. Try to make that a habit, it levels the playing field a bit.

    I’m rambling now! Yay for Saturday and for the cute pic of Pookah!

    I have been a following your blog for a while and I never leave comments. Just want to let you know that I love your blog. I have a little girl a couple of months younger than your son and your photos have inspired me to try to capture these years in print again. Hang in there with your hubby it will get better. Maybe you can find a babysitter and have a monthly date night to start. Get dressed up and hit the town.
