Siapa Kata? (Says Who?)

Oh wow! I can’t believe the month of January came and went, just like that! And we’re already in the 2nd week of February 2008, i.e. Sofea's 6th week of primary school, and it’s going to be my 5th month being a SAHM.

I met an old friend who asked me how things are going so far.

I might be wrong but somehow I got the impression that she was implying how 'lepak-ed' (relaxed) my current life must be. True, true, I don’t have to deal with office-related matters, on-call support or difficult customers and the likes. But I am still responsible for daily problem-solving(s) and still need to deal with plans going haywire and also deadlines! Sheesh.

I wasn’t offended or anything because I used to have similar thoughts myself, so I just told her that until now, I've never had the chance to feel bored. There’s always something to do, wash, fold, iron, pick up, clean, arrange. So many questions to answer. Siblings fighting over the same crayon. She claims it’s hers, and he insisted that siblings must share, no matter what. Then it’s vice versa. She wants to 'help' build the railway tracks her way, even though the trains and tracks are his, and he prefers his trains to "masuk tunnel dulu, baru boleh wheeeeee".

Apart from home-keeping and freelance work, there’s the planning of meals and cooking. Not a super-easy task for a mommy whose cooking 'database' is not big enough to begin with. *blush*

But I’m happy to say that work on 'expanding the database' is currently ongoing, and more data recipes are being uploaded, and updated on a weekly basis. As I am typing this entry, g00gle is helping to search for a new quick & easy way to prepare a yummy chicken dish for tomorrow's lunch. hee hee hee.

And of course, things get much much 'trickier' when the other parent goes outstation for days (which happens quite often nowadays, unfortunately). Goes without saying-lah, this one. Ooohhh… the responsibilities, the drama, the dilemma. Mencabar sungguh.

I haven’t had the luxury to read either, unlike that time. I started Life is an Open Secret, I think sometime mid of January, and have not finished reading it yet, and it’s not even a huge book!



So if you don’t see me around often, you’d know why. I always planned to visit you folks, but I’d end up having to do something else. *sigh* Sometimes I’d manage to steal time to read your entries, and leave a comment or two. But more often than not, I’d be a silent visitor or reader. It’s not my original intention though. Y’all know how much I love you, kan? kan? kan? :)

Errr… do I sound like I’m complaining about not having the chance to feel bored? Ooopps!! :P
