Need and Break from the Weekend

Being a teacher I really look forward to the weekends. I get to stay in bad later (I wish), read a book (which did not happen till Sunday night between 9 and 11) and just get a break from kids (this too was impossible.. even with one gone I still had one to deal with). 

So when I say I needed a break from the weekend its because I spent the 2 days taking care of the kids, cooking on demand and cleaning and washing clothes. The 2 days flew by so fast and I hardly got a chance to myself. I basically played housewife and maid and mother. There was no ME time... no time with the HUBBY and no time to feel as if my presence was worth more. 

The funniest thing was ... in-between my daughter sleeping and me trying to wash and fold clothes I tried watching Lord of the Ring (too ambitious... only saw the first hour before getting distracted with other things)

I really should not complain but because the week before was tough and I found myself having to do everything for the kids without help... I was just hoping for a little bit of help .... from anybody. But no help came and I trudged through the weekend knowing that it was back to work Monday morning. I know many have weekends like this and busier weeks before and ahead... but sometimes a little breather is needed. 

I really hope this is a better week and I hope you guys are having a great day. 


  1. You do need a break and some time for yourself!

  2. Ah, sometimes weekends are just like that. I spent the weekend cleaning up after a puking kid, but we were supposed to have his birthday party this weekend, which would have kept me pretty busy. Sometimes you just need a weekend after the weekend. Hope your week is much better and the following weekend is a relaxing one!

  3. I have started having my husband watch the kids on a week night for 3-ish hours. I take time to do something for myself, get a pedicure, grab starbucks and peruse target. Anything to give me alone time. It works out great and I can be me for a bit.

  4. I agree we all need a helping hand sometimes. I hope you get one soon and are able to breath. Have a nice day.

  5. My hubby is out of town over march break, I'm going to need a break from the break!

  6. I hope you get to have some you time soon - if need be lock yourself in the bathroom with some nice bubbles and some candles ;) xx

  7. Hope this weekend's better. :(


  8. Mothers everywhere are nodding at knowing what it means to need a break from the weekend. ;)

  9. I think it's so important to take a break and do whatever is necessary to recharge. I hope that you get must needed time for yourself.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
