My saturdays are just Kharrrrrayzzeh! @_@ I have so many things to do, people to drive, places to go & things to attend to that by Sunday night, I welcome the boring weekdays where I can just veg out 3/4’s of the day & the kids are tucked away in school. Nah. Who am I kidding. I LOVE MY WEEKENDS! I LOVE BEING A SLAVE TO MY KIDS. ;)
To see a glimpse of how my Saturdays are:
1.) Babysit the dogs. Kap scheduled for our house to be fumigated from top to bottom this particular saturday so wherever I was going for the day, I had to bring all 3 dogs with me. Extra burden I tell you. I don’t mind taking Jela because she just sleeps in the car & she’s quite manageable. But the 2 puppies are really a hassle coz they poop & pee like every 2 hours (with farts in between) zOMG! Imagine the stench in the car with them along! So I took them to my mom’s to chill when we couldn’t take the odor anymore. This is what you call sub-contracting hehe.
2.) Woodrose Fair. My baby girl had a date with her friends at the school fair so I made sure she got there safely. Pick up mode after a few hours & she almost always wants a hangout with her friends at the house after so I need to make provisions for snacks & drinks & see to it that our house is in order and doesn’t stink to high heavens because of the puppies.
3.) Gym. Not me. Ate. :| She is so religious with her gym time that nothing & no one can go between her & exercise. She goes Linda Blair if you even try stopping her. And she has to be there at a particular time when she likes the class at the gym, so we all have to move around her schedule because she doesn’t drive & refuses to learn, sheesh! I have to take her there & squeeze chores in between the hour that she’s working out. Can you spell R-U-S-H?? What about S-T-R-E-S-S! @_@
This particular saturday though, he had a suit fitting. So after dropping off my Lovey, Ate, the pups, we had to rush to BF for his fitting in time for prom. Naturally Jela had to come because my mom only accepted the puppies since they were in a cage. A roaming Jela wasn’t acceptable. I’m so thankful the tailoring shop allowed Jela to come in..
5.) Lunch. The kids, especially my Lovey, expect to be entertained & dined on weekends. As soon as they see my eyes open on a Saturday morning, they ask me what’s on our agenda. They can’t stay put in the house. So off we go on a food trip. Even Jela looks at me as if saying.. what’s the ganap today mommy?
6.) After lunch & a quick shower and change back home, it’s Ate’s turn for her own ganap..
7) Movie with Kap or the fambam. Saturday is usually our movie night. If the kids like what’s showing, they come along. If not, it’s a quiet night at the movies for me & Kap with plenty of text messages from the kids in between reminding me what they need for the week ahead. A mother’s job is never done!
