this weekend was pretty damn good. and necessary.

the husband and i are preparing for my family to come visit us. this will be the first time we've seen them since the wedding (almost a year) and while i love my parents dearly....well...being a new family takes practice and patience and it's a little stressful to plan a whole week together...

Sounds like a marvelous weekend. It's great that you and your husband are such a hot couple. Some people (not me) aren't so lucky. Savor every moment.kiss

do you have hobbies...?... or maybe you just need to find an activity that takes you out of your rut.... like Bear Wrestling....

Just kidding

anyway,,, hope you find yourself


just google Des Moines

start with this

bear wrestling sounds pretty awesome....but i'd probably shit myself with terror. i've discussed hobbies with the husband. i have a serious itch to do some diy and crafty stuff but i can never justify the expense if i'm going to hate the results. we'll see....

the usual way out of a rut for me is to ride it out by writing or coloring (cause i'm like a 5 year old) or something else creative but this time....i just feel too tired to even attempt anything.

tomorrow the husband and i have the day off.

it's the first (and last) for quite some time.

eventually i hope that we'll have time for each other again...but at the moment our life together is work, eat, sleep, repeat. and it's beyond tiring...especially given that i'm working 9-10 hour days every single day.

i've been trying to...

I'm on 10 hour days Mon-Fri and 5 hours Sat mornings and it feels like I never have the time to be the husband or father I should be. Forget having the time to maintain the house or car or anything else. I just try to be thankful that I have a job when so many don't. It is friggin' exhausting though! Hang in there doll, hopefully it will get better! smile

i love writing. i write here....about totally random stuff. i write short stories and poems (though admittedly not much lately) and i keep a regular blog. the husband refers to that as the "real blog" or the "blog blog."

when he and i first started dating he asked permission to read it, which i found ridiculously sweet of him. truth is though, it was...

i'm not quite sure what it is about the zoo.

honestly.

the animals? the feel of summer? the relaxed atmosphere? talking a walk on the wild side?

okay so the last one was super lame. but i mean. honestly.

every time (admittedly it's only been twice) that the husband and i take the boy to the zoo we end up having crazy hot...

i work in childcare.

i've blogged about disliking the cattiness of the women i work with before. i found a way to ameliorate that situation. i relinquished control of my room...which was a really hard decision for me. i love the kids i work for and with. seeing them learn something new excites me the way that it excites them. but i couldn...

today has been awesome.

not all day. the morning. the afternoon. right now.

but right at noon the husband and i had a family lunch and it was...awkward to say the least. it pissed my husband and i off and we needed to get out of the house.

so we did. if the husband hadn't spent all day yesterday throwing up from drinking...

it has been a relatively uneventful monday night.

not that monday nights are every super exciting...but this one has been incredibly low key. and i'm beyond okay with that.

the husband and i have been talking on and off all night. zoning out in front of our computers. and watching "blue valentine." we had both wanted to see it and never gotten around...

saturday night.

i'm on sg. enjoying all the sexiness that it has to offer.

and the randomness as well.

i posted thursday about how this week was pretty shitty at work. it was for my husband too. and since we have the boy this weekend, we didn't really have time today to do just nothing. the dog had to get to the vet...
