Especially when you have no domestic help, have to juggle a puking baby boy running fevers as high as 39.4ºC, a husband who suffers food poisoning induced diarrhea until he cannot stand up, multiple last minute article deadlines, plenty of vomit-stained laundry to scrub and wash, all while you’re still bleeding your life out and suffering fatigue/fever/flu.
Sometimes, I think there really can be too much to take at one go.
I demand a temporal pay increment over any period of time when the baby boy falls ill. Double temporal pay increment if BOTH father and son fall sick. I is not Superwoman ok?
6 fookin am and I am still here because I have to be committed to submit my due assignments.
Damn. Limbu die ugly ugly let you see tomorrow. T.G.I.F my ass lah!
It’s at times like these that I feel that being a working mom beats being a WAHM (Work-at-home mom). When you’re working outside, you don’t have to juggle a whiny baby while trying to complete your work. And if your child is sick, you can choose to take leave and concentrate on caring for your child, without trying to multi-task (and probably failing badly on both ends).
Don’t lie ok? I don’t believe anyone can successfully multi-task that much on their plates all at the same time.
The only way I can do everything properly is if I sacrifice my own rest, which I desperately need at this point in time due to certain unfortunate events (that some of you would have already known).
Fortunately my assignments are mainly on freelance basis and come in ad-hoc instead of constantly. Otherwise I really die give you see.
Another notable point is how I’ve been so busy coping with all these that I don’t even have time to feel crap about what happened. So don’t worry about me. I’m still standing, and we’re gonna give it another shot! (Otherwise, Joshua will hate me forever and ever.)
Heng I stayed up late to do work. Suddenly raining cats and dogs and all the windows in the house were wide open! Now time to sleep for about 5 hours before I wake up to fight fire again. 😦
