MIA No More

It has been two weeks since my mom went home from her vacation here in the metro. It means that I am again left alone with my two toddlers let alone lose my sanity again. But when my bravery finally kicked in, I decided to clean up both of our rooms, this time it has to be wall-to-wall cleaning to anticipate the arrival of my little bundle of joy. I could’ve hired someone to do it for me, but I just couldn’t imagine shaming myself for the 6 months accumulation of mess during the morning sickness days. Mind you, the clean up took about 5 days tops because of the intermission in between cleaning. I couldn’t even imagine how we survived with all the mess trying to sleep it off thinking that my OC self makes my eye sore just seeing a single mess. Now, I don’t want to imagine it even further.

Moving on, 6 months have already passed and yes, it swifts by so quickly that I have a lot of catching up to do. One is this new humble nook of mine has a lot of building up to do and lots of article on drafts that needs to be published. I hope to publish them before the calendar hits it 8-month mark. Oh please, share some tips please on how to fight sleepiness because the maximum two cups of coffee just don’t work its wonders! Second, I need to finalize everything before my scheduled CS. Third, my kids and me have a lot of catching up with our homeschooling lesson plan. So help me God.

But you know what? Despite all the hibernation brought about by my preggy hormones, I realized a lot of things. Life can be so uncomplicated if you want it to. Yes, we had all the mess from not being able to supervise the kids to clean up and pack away their toys as well as from the minimal cleaning I do, but I was less stressed because I chose to sleep it off instead of being stressed about it. A meal can be complete too even if it means take out/food delivery from restaurants just because I couldn’t tend the smell of food in the skillet. I know I have been very bad with our diet but it was the most viable thing to do.

All I can think of each moment I close my eye was how blessed we are still despite having to go those dreadful days. It wasn’t the kind of everyday routine we were used to but still I am thankful for my kids and husband who understands me.



So again, here I am with a lot of catching up to do. Shall we start? Send me some love will ya? Please come back for more posts and flash giveaway soon.
