Lately, I am feeling tired. Maybe because of the kids, I am not sure.
Yesterday, I have to monitor Amni's school works. She got tonnes of it, since last week we are on holiday. And she finished everything by 11 p.m. Last Monday, it was Fawwaz's turn, he took 2 hours to finish his school works.
I am not sure, but I think most mommies will feel the same as me. It was not easy to keep the house spotlessly clean all the time. My daily routine would be picking up the toys and books scattered around the house. When I came back from the office, I was exhausted to do the things that I am suppose to do. Basic daily chores include laundering clothes, prepare or buy foods for the kids, ironing and prepare the kids' bags to the nursery. I am sure for most people, that's not a lot, but it was surely exhausting.
My TV time? Consider it was non existance. I am not a follower of any TV series. I have ditched my favourite series a long time ago, Lost and Heroes. I do not watch any news. My kids' TV time was around 9 p.m. on Cartoon Networks.
Fahri has a habit of breastfeeding while I folded the clothes. Yes, you read it right. I considered it my multitasking time.
So when people commented that I do not take care of the plants out of my house, I am also grateful for the weather nowadays. I just hope for the rain to water the plants.
Even when I am tired, I will make sure that I folded and washed the clothes for the day. If I do not do it, then the piles keep getting bigger and bigger. I am sure some husbands take it laidback, but I don't like the fact that the women has to do all the house chores.
Weekends, if we are going out, I will make sure that I have wash all the clothes before we can move anywhere. I hate it when I get back from somewhere, and I was tired, but the clothes piled in the washing machine.
I do not want to generalise men, but haiyoo.. when it comes to dust around the house, they simply do not notice it? Excuse me, did you see the dust near your brand new TV?
With Fahri having eczema, I have to ensure that I cleaned the house on weekend (I mean vacuuming, mopping, or washing the toilet). I have to wash the sofa covers by this weekend, since I keep delaying it (and the sofa covers has colour pencil marks from the 3 kids). It also has been a week that I noticed Fahri coloured the kitchen tiles and I used WD-40 to clean it yesterday (but still, the mark is still there. Guess I have to brush harder).
My me time? Sometimes I heard the motivational speaker said "You should allocate some time for yourself", but hey, it was hard to find the time for myself! I do want a spa or facial!!!!!! Or just a dinner with my hubby at some posh restaurant (without the kids, please).
P/S: To Nadnye, sorry I don't do tags much. I have tonnes pending from Kak Ina and quite a few from my friends.
