Just A weird babbling post straight from my isolated bathroom. #sendhelpPLEASE!

Yep, it's happening I am downright cracking on day 36, 37, 40, I just really don't know what day it is. (insert woman on the floor balling, crying and foaming at the mouth).
Has the isolation of being cooped up in the house gotten to me. Am I alone in this? How is your marriage going with your sidekick? You know that person you are dating, married too, or just plain ole' shacking up with. Yikes, I am so dang gone messy. :) 

(Ok readers no pun intended just a little jokey joke. )

But seriously, are you still in love with that one person you've decided to isolate yourself with?

Ha! oh how I would love to bring you that blog post that says we are all smiles. Or how I am happy to see my hubby all day every day for 24 hours and every ten seconds. But, Yall, I need this house rest to be lifted sooner than later.

I must admit the first two weeks were all bliss, you know happiness was overflowing. We were eating all the junk food, staying up late and watching movies, amongst other things.
(Come on reader's stop being extra nosey) Ha! I can't tell all my business.
But after 4 weeks and 1,588 movies I'm sick of looking at everybody in my house. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh somebody please go and bring me some good wine.

Because all I want is 20 minutes in my bathroom all by myself. I just want to take a Dr. Teal soaking bath, put on my make-up, and fart in peace. Am I asking for too much doing these uncharted circumstances?

Can you believe I got no time by myself because my husband wanted to stand and talk? Not about nothing specific, just the same ole' thing.

 Him: So, what else are we doing today 
Me: We will talk more about it in the car?
Him: Babe, what's for dinner?
Me: Whatever I find on the shelf at the local grocers
Him: Oh, are you cooking dessert?
Him: We'll I was just wondering so I could know which direction we are going?
Me: Ok, Fried Shrimp, Catfish, and Salad and Kool-Aid.
Him: You do realize we are in isolation, and that is not going to last more than tonight?
Me: So, you want me to cook a five-course meal and make a dessert? How about some baked chicken, over yellow rice, with homemade brown gravy, pickled cabbage, a pot of pinto beans, nutmeg potatoes, sweet cornbread, and peach cobbler.
Him: Yes, honey, that sounds good to me, And then he kisses me on my forehead.
Me: Somewhere right through that kiss, I blanked entirely out!
then, I yelled:
 Gettttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt Out The Bathroom!

Somewhere deep down inside, I was fuming because I've been cooking breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.  Not to mention the in-between eating we all are doing around 2 am while watching bad boys and transformers. Which happens to be both of Rico's favorite movies. 

So, in the scene of it all, it took me 2 hours just to get a bath and dressed. Not dressed up, just a slip-on romper. 
Then I finally come out of the bathroom with the stares of being a mean witch from my family.

Me: explaining and apologizing for wanting to be in the bathroom all by myself.

No one was amused one bit, not even the slightest. So, I had to buckle down and allow Rico back into the bathroom so we could put our masks on together.

Me: Rolling my eyes just like I did when I was a kid.
Yep, that is where my life is at the moment.

In conclusion: I am learning a whole lot about me, myself and I, my marriage, and my family. I guess being confined to the house, you realize how much you each get on each other's nerves. But, I wouldn't want to be closed off with no one else but the love of my life. Yes, after almost five weeks of being at home, I may have become a little wonky. But, hey, life is not perfect, and it feels good to allow myself to feel those out of wack moments. I know when this is all over, I will have a few stories to tell all my hair clients. But in the meantime, I am going to take it easy and enjoy this time with those that matter.

I must admit things are going to be different when this isolation is lifted, but I have a new love and respect for my marriage and the people in my home who need me the most.

Life is too short not to be living every inch in peace, love, and joy.

Last but not least, thank you for joining in on my marriage babbles and my funny little breakdown. Yep, it happens to the best of us. 

Questions for you:
