weekending 4th of july-12

We spent the fourth of July at my Parents house, enjoying family, barbecuing and observing.

Pookah of course, had the time of his life. As usual.  He is the apple of his grandparents eyes and he loves his cousins so …that’s all he needed.

It was good to be able to do little things for my mother like wash the dishes, make the beds, cook, etc…

I always feel guilty that I’m so far away and can’t help her with my father. I wish I could be in two places at one time, but of course, that can’t happen.

But she is making her own way, and determined to do it with minimal help. Despite my father being stubborn, despite everyone expecting her to fail.

But being with Pookah makes her so happy. And my Dad too. And he loves them right back.

So that was our weekend, family, fun, barbecue and relaxation.
How was yours?

How was your weekend?

Our weekend around here was unexpectedly busy.  I had plans( as I always do) to do absolutely nothing.

Wait I take that back.

I had plans to clean, write posts, take some photos for a post and maybe venture out to the park on one of the two days.

Yeah, none of that happened.

Pookah and I eneded up at an improptu spinkler party and his besties while Mama enjoyed cheap wine and Mike’s Hard Lemonade in Mango flavor.


He had fun and we didn’t get home until waaaaay past his bedtime.

Which earned me a 8 13 am wake up call.


Sunday, I got talked into a birthday party at the pool.

Again, fun times for Pookah until he scraped up his knees on the bottom of the kiddie pool and had a “I’m so damn tired but I still want to play ” meltdown.

I got him home and preceeded to spend the next hour of my life sitting in the car because I DONT WAKE A SLEEPING CHILD.


Finally, I got him in thehouse where he CONTINUED to sleep for another hour!!!

Finally, I had to wake him up because if I didn’t, he would have NEVER gone to bed that night.

And of course, nothing got done around the house.

I frantically washed clothes for Monday, grocery shopped and attemted to clean the chaos that is my house every weekend.


At least Pookah had fun…..

How was your weekend?

The Lawn service is here today, pulling weeds that are trying to become trees, laying mulch, trimming trees and mowing grass. Because frankly, AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! LOL

I don’t have anything remotely resembling a green thumb and Cdub told me our yard was too big for him to take care of.

So enter the service. They do a good job, and come about once a month.  But today, I noticed that the weed wacker was getting a little too close to the wonderful line of flowers that climb the driveway.

You should have seen me throwing on a pair of shorts and running out screaming BE CAREFUL! LOL

That’s my contribution to a beautiful yard this month.

Happy Friday.

This was a looooooong weekend.

Pookah had an unexpected playdate on Saturday. There was water, sun, and fun.



Let’s just say I was exhausted afterwards. Pookah passed out in the car later on on the way to Father’ s Day dinner a day early, but I didn’t get to pass out until much much later.

Father’s Day was quiet.  Pookah showed up in our bedroom around 630 wished his Daddy Happy Father’s Day and promptly went back to sleep.


Unable to continue sleeping with a foot in my back, I got up and left them sleeping. Does this happen to anyone else?

I called my Daddy, wished him a Happy Father’s Day and actually got a hello out of him.

CDub lazed around all day as he should on Father’s Day, and I cooked dinner and then badgered the two of them for a photo on the porch. I swear. Why is it so hard??????

I mean look at them!!!!!

I can’t understand for the life of me why wouldn’t he want to take a photo with his mini me?? I honestly just think it’s to annoy me. SMH.

But I got my photos and that’s all that matters.

I ended the weekend anticipating the last scene in Game of Thrones( I’ve read the books so I knew what was coming) and editing photos.

And now it’s Monday.

WHy does the weekend go so fast?

How was your weekend? Did you do something special for Father’s day? Share!!!
