Wow! That long weekend went by so fast I must say. While most of my colleagues used the long weekend for an out-of-town or out-of-the-country trips, my family and I just stayed home and used the weekend to relax (at least for them.)
We didn't plan a trip because we're saving up for the boys' birthday party next month. But I spent the weekend productively and happily by being domesticated. I must admit, since I am a full-time working momma, I only cook breakfasts daily and whole-day meal during weekends and only get to clean the whole second floor every three days, how I wish I could do it everyday.
This long weekend was spent pamamalengke (as in the wet market, usually the helper does that), cooking, eating, playing with kids and semi-general cleaning: decluttering and re-arranging our living space. I tell you, general-cleaning is very therapeutic and liberating to do so. I got rid of things we no longer need and could even be considered trash which we've been keeping for so long. I was only able to do this chore in our living room/area and I'm planning to do so in the other parts of the house soon.
Let me show you my domesticated side (yes I have! haha!) I happily cooked for the family and even the hardworking Daddy Practicality also cooked for us:
|Mommy's Turbo Chicken Recipe and my Buttered Potatoes and Carrots|
|Grilled Cheesy Bangus|
SM 3-Day Sale. So here's how proud I am to show our domesticated teamwork:
|This curtain set only costed me Php 750.00! :)|
|Happy to also had found matching pillow cases worth Php 50.00 each!|
With the kids, I make sure we spend quality time when we're home. We love hugging, kissing, talking, laughing and playing. My almost-teenage boy had his pogi haircut and wrote me a letter expressing his love and appreciation. The little one says he only wants mommy by his side to bathe him, change his clothes, prepare him milk and play with him as well. To cap the lovingly domesticated long weekend, here he is doing a cute flying Ironman pose, which looks a lot like planking I must say.
