My Weekend Goals

Today was a pretty good day.  I managed to get 3 more bags unpacked from the closets.  My goal is hopefully be finished by the end of tomorrow so I can have a very relaxing Father’s Day.  If I get it done by tomorrow I can really relax.=

I took my son for an extra few minutes around the block.  I was hoping he would get tired and want to fall asleep in the stroller.  Well that’s exactly what happened.  He was so relaxed that he didn’t even notice me put him in his crib.  That gave me some extra time to get some things done.  He woke up a little, but soon fell back asleep when I held him for a while.  I put him back into his crib and so far I haven’t heard a peep from the baby monitor.

Well I am going to take care of some chores before I relax for the evening.  I will try to write again.

Thanks for reading,


P.S.  I hope I can a hang of figuring out the time setting on this.  I think I will by the time I keep writing. 🙂

P.P.S.  I got the time setting done.  🙂

Hello world!

Hi.  My name is Mahlet… but my friends and family call me Molly for short.  I am a young woman who recently moved to the South to start a new life with my husband and son.  In a couple of days it will be officially a month since I began this journey.  See I grew up in Western Washington in the Pacific Northwest.  My mother, father, and I moved there when I was very young.  So all I pretty much know is the Seattle area.  Even though I was born in Eastern Africa I pretty much called Washington home.

I have always enjoyed reading books.  That was one of my favorite activities when I was a child.  As I got older I began to write things.  It started small like journal entries and then gradually turned into poetry/creative writing/short stories.  My mom always praised me for my writing.  It became my way of expressing myself.  I would write things out when I was sad or upset.  One time I even wrote a note about my discouragement of math to my math tutor.  She didn’t really get it.  I am pretty sure I have lots of old journals from junior high and high school somewhere at my parents home.  My mom always said that she was going to save it for when I became a famous writer.  If I wasn’t doing something creative (reading or writing) I was watching something or listening to music.  I also admit I enjoy singing.  I haven’t sung in a while… but that doesn’t stop me from singing along to the radio or an online playlist.

So that pretty much is me.  I hope that readers will enjoy reading my blog.  Perhaps I might help someone.  I know that my life has changed by something I may have read.  Let me know what you think.
