Getting Domesticated

After about 4 to 5 years, it is just now that I got to wash again our clothes. Big thanks to technology and they invented automatic washing machine (I heart this appliance)!. My Tita Yaya had painful hands and she was afraid that if the pain worsen, she might not be able to do her real source of income (that's doing manicure and pedicure). So I let her go though I know I would really need a lot of adjustments to do. So for two weeks now, we do not have a helper and I decided that we would stick with this set up for the meantime. Golly, since we transferred in our house, this is the first time after 4 years that I would do almost all the household chores on top of my job in the call center and on top of those side jobs.

But really, I feel so fulfilled right now. So you see I am NOT complaining. Imagine, just for this day I was able to wrote 15 articles in the morning, did the laundry (one week load) in the afternoon and cleaned the whole house . Have you noticed there is no cooking and washing of the dishes in my list? Those are my hubby's tasks. We were even kidding each other - like if this is already a sampler of how our life would be if we are living in US or foreign country without a helper on tow. So far, we are surviving and somehow we're loving it a bit. I just don't know how long would we be able to manage this kind of set up. Oh well, I am trying my best to become a domesticated wife (for once, hehehe).

I promised myself though that tomorrow would really be our day off. NO household chores, no call center jobs and definitely no side jobs!

Wednesday Happy Thoughts

For the first time, I would be joining Mich in her Wednesday Happy Thoughts.

Happiness is...
  1. Having more side jobs coming
  2. Sticking with my budget plans
  3. A new fully automatic washing machine
  4. A good friend decided to stay in the company
  5. A sister in law who listens to most of my stories (with sense or non-sense)
  6. Fruit yogurt in the morning
  7. Waking up early feeling recharged
  8. Beating all my deadlines (including with the side jobs)
  9. Loss some flabs on my tummy
  10. A good realization that we would beat the odds, no matter what happens...

I've been a lousy blogger for more than 2 weeks. I am sorry dear visitors. I know you got tired seeing my last post way way back August 31. But admit it - that last post is really an inspiration especially the prayer! lols

Anyway, I will try my best to squeeze in blogging even if I have tons of work to do. I even work on a Saturday and Sunday is my only rest. Hirap talagang magbanat ng buto... parang ako na rin si Inday - Linggo lang ang day off...heheh

And to those who tagged me, gave me awards and paid this blog a visit even if there are no updates... my heartfelt thanks! I will really try to post in this blog often and answer your meme.
