A Journey In Black and Indian Love

A Peek inside the marriage of an African American woman and her East Indian spouse

A Typical Blindian Day September 30, 2009




One of my readers got on to me about not posting more regularly. This one is for you Stacee.

There are many people curious about the kind of relationship that M and I have. For some reason, the curiosity tends to lead some to believe that we somehow lead a very different life from others. I really wish that were the case but we lead a relatively common life. Don’t believe me? Take a look at our typical weekday (pulled specifically from today)

6:30 a.m M rises and awakens the kids and starts breakfast

6:50-7 a.m M awakens me

7:25  a.m. M and or I wait with kids at the bus stop 

7:30 a.m. M makes coffee and chats with me as I finish getting ready for work

 7:50 a.m. M heads to our store and within 10 minutes I head to work. 

8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. M works at our store while I work at the station. We talk six or seven times a day 

5 p.m. M or I pick up the kids from school 

5:30  I begin cooking dinner (sometimes M will cook) While one of us cooks the other helps kids with homework. If the kids have no homework, we all hang out in the kitchen and cook together.

6:30  We eat dinner together as a family 

7:15-8:00 Family time

8:00-8:15 kids take baths and go to bed. 

8:30-10 p.m.  Alisa works on voiceover jobs and things for Payson Jewels (right now it’s working on the website revamping for Payson Jewels). M watches television.

10:30 to 11:00 or so M and I talk while he irons the kids clothes.

11:00  Lights out for everyone. 

As you can see, we’re pretty boring. We do occasionally shake things up a bit by going out to dinner or watching a movie etc but what you see above is our typical day. I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our daily lives. I know to some people it may be a bit “Leave it To Beaver” but it’s not. It’s just who we are. Until the next blog…

    You are silly. hahaha!! Well thanks for this, missy! Don’t I feel special.

    I am loving the 5:30-8p quality time in the kitchen, eating as a family, and family time. That’s beautiful! Many families are not like that anymore.

    I will admit that when I first found your blog, I was excited to see a black woman with an indian man, because for me, it was new. But I know that you all are a normal, happily married family, that just happened to be interracial. I am a sucka for a good love story and I fell in love with your whole story….it’s always good to see/hear two people who are in love and committed to each other. Btw, your life is not boring….normal, but not boring. ;P

    Have a peaceful night and a wonderful day tomorrow, Mrs. A. I’m on my way to bed.
