Weekend Warrior: Walking & Working

I managed to accomplish a few things this weekend, but most of them were already late, so I’m not really sure that I can count that in the win column. I’m still going to, though! After an aborted trip to find a certain soulfood place on our side of town, we ended up at Friday’s Friday night. I told Mr. P I wanted to go to the March for Babies event and he agreed to go with me.

The march morning was a mess. I woke up late, and freaked because I’m OCD about meeting up on time. We get to where my sorority is gathering to leave with a few minutes to spare (only to ask for meet up point at site; Mr. P was driving us), only to find tha no one was there. They were about 20-30 mins late leaving, at which time I was still waiting for Mr. P. to geth back from the gas station (and a side trip home). At the site, it took us forever to park and everyone had started already.

We managed to catch up with them and finish the course. It was hot and uncomfortable, and a lot of the tables ran out of water. Overall it was good, though. The sun was out and we were helping babies.

At church Sunday night, one of the brothers that aspires to preach gave his second sermon. It was really good. I remember when he was first baptized a little over a year ago, and he’s already preaching. He and his wife are going to have baby #2 this summer and are young people, a year or two younger than me. It does me good to see other people my age living and preaching the Word. Despite what you see on TV, there are some Black men who marry and raise their children and do what God wants them to do!

I accidentally put premium gasoline in my car. No biggie according to my uncle, but big deal says my wallet. I am still giving my dad’s first chapter a thorough proofreading and making appropriate suggestions/ commentary. The book is on building stronger relationshps. It has me thinking about getting back to my book. If I ever get on top of everything else!

    1. It’s some new soul food place that was advertising in Mr. P’s complex…T.Js or something like that.

      Mr. P. is my boyfriend. You know his real name, lol….Mr. P stands for Mr. Perfect…that’s his blog name.

      You are not allergic to sun; you’re Jamaican. LOL

      Good for you. I will definitely pray for you!

      I went to a different gas station and the pumps were different. Messed up the budget slightly but I had some extra so I’m good.

      Thanks for reading!

  2. I need to get back to my book as well. I got busy and ended up stopping. I like the fact that you participated in an event to help little ones. Most of us humans just decide that we had “other” things to do when we really should be helping society get better.

    “It does me good to see other people my age living and preaching the Word.” – I like this quote because you are right about that, we don’t do the right things, but are first to complain about how things are not going right. It’s a learning process….. guess it makes the world go ’round…. lol

    nice blog 🙂

    1. What is your book about? Keeping up with this blog is a lot of work too, but at least I get to write something every once in a while. Crafting some of these entries is like writing a story! I’ve been looking for you to update yours. I always did enjoy your writing 😀

      It is a learning process to be a citizen of the world and not just cater to yourself. The older I get the more aware of other people I’m getting. It can’t always be all about me. Hopefully, I’ll get better at it and so will everyone else.

      Thanks for reading!
