I Am Beat

First of all, thank you to all those who left a comment on my last post. For the past months that I have been blogging, I have met you all on-line and I feel that I have developed a connection with you guys (let me know if you feel otherwise ;)) and I felt that I just needed to be true to myself and to you all. Thank You for those comments. they made me feel so much better. I can't believe how much I love you all -well, thank God for this thing called blogging!
So...the nanny has gone on vacation (huhuhuhu). Yes, after 2 whole years she has decided to take a 1 week break. She lives a good 16 hours away from our city. And I must say, I am having a difficult time adjusting. In a sense I have been spoiled by this privilege of having a very reliable househelp / cook / babysitter. Not that I do not do any of these, I do - I cook and care for the kids. It's just something new to be taking care of and attending to so many things.
And for the first time in a long time, I have no energy to even stay up for at least 30 minutes at night to watch some extra television. My day starts at 5-6 AM (depending on what time Dash decides to light his light bulb eyes) and then I cook breakfast. While cooking, if I am not attending to Josh and Dash (while Jet fixes up), I fix up and Jet watches over the boys. Then breakfast comes. After which, I take a bath and get ready for work. Lucky if I arrive in the office by 8AM. By 11:30, I am on my way home to fix lunch and then back at the office by 1PM. I leave work by 5 - 5:30 and then reach home just in time to prepare dinner. While waiting for the food to be cooked, I wash the bottles and try to relax a bit. Dinner time comes. After dinner, Jet cleans up while I wash the dishes. By 8:30 I am beat. I wait for Dash to finally turn off his switches and off to dreamland he goes.
And then the next day comes...oh too quickly.

i know how that feels. although it feels a bit rewarding taking care of things at home personally, it leaves us moms tired and lusterless to take care of other pressing needs. i hope your nanny gets back soon. =) God bless.

Sometimes it does feel like you have more to do than you have time for (and that is probably true). But all you can do is keep taking on every day with your best.

your boys are adorable!!

It's so hard to get everything done. How lucky you are to have a nanny!

I wish I had a nanny, but then when I had one, I had to pay her 1500 a month! Quite cheap for my number of kids.

Still, I end up paying her to watch me hold my kids. So, it was kind of a redundant position.

I'm jealous ... a nanny ... sigh. I dream of what it would be like to have a little help around the house. Maybe in my next life ...
