tell me lah!

am i having mid-life crisis? hahaha... i dunno, i think im having the-normal-irene-crisis. on & off i will feel crappy, donno if because of PMS or just plain sampat-ness on my end. i feel like my life has no excitement. tell me, what's the purpose of our lives? see see... im asking mangkok question again, what the hell is wrong with me!!!!!!

my hubs said i don't spend time with my lil missy. i know, and i feel like i'm the worst mom around. not loving her enuf, not spending time with her, only know how to shout at her when she did something notty or wrong. i just don't have the time! i will normally reach home around 7.30pm and that is considered early already, if not sometimes 8pm.

once i'm at home, the first thing i do is to boil water. then wash the bottles, refill drinkable water. then put in the dirty laundry, then pack lil missy's bag for school next day, her extra clothing for the daycare. then after that, pick this up, pick that up, sit down to eat dinner. luckily we catered food, so we only need to cook the rice, which hubs diligently does it everyday, thank you iloveyou! after dinner, i will wash everything, and anything. after eating, i will sweep & mop the floor, oh before i forget, in between sweeping & mopping, i will bring in the dry clothes and folds them. once i'm done with mopping, i will go to bath

after bathing, let's not forget, washing machine done washing our clothes, time for hanging. once done hanging the clothes for drying, i will look at the clock, and it will shows 11.30pm. if i'm lucky, it will show 10.30pm. i see... now i know why i just don't have the time to play with lil missy... hmmm... my time management, lousy! aaaaaaaarggggh!

everyday i do the same thing at home. everyone goes thru the same thing, i know, but i'm just damn damn bored with the same old routine. i know i know, i gotta be thankful, i got food on the table, a home to clean up, a lil missy to shout at, a hubs whom helps me with lil missy BUT i just need to rant! makes me feel better... i dunno if i can cope with 2nd baby, but i really want a another baby for us :)

oh well, enuf ranting, life goes on...
forgot to add in, work in ofis shucks too :(

Yup, another baby will change everything... new routine! It's ok to rant, makes you feel better right? At least your "boring" routine is only from 7:30PM onwards. Mine starts from 7:30AM ok! :p

Irene said...

LittleLamb said...

MayChing said...

to be a mum is not easy..

reanaclaire said...

wait till u r my age.. more cranky then.. and very fast get heated up one,.. gosh.. i become Mdm. Grumpy of 7 dwarfs..

Mummy Moon said...

Life is like that hor... Hmm, once in a while ranting sure can ease the tension and boresome life, haha!

Spend all your weekend with lil missy, she will understand a working mummy is busy during weekdays :)

Tekkaus said...

For me, my purpose of life is all about my family. So...I will never get bored...until I am dead that is.

Mommy to Chumsy said...

i think it's "the-normal-irene-crisis". you already know you don't spend enough time with krystal so try to allocate some time for her. she's your only child for now. our kids grow up too fast so you have to enjoy the moment. mopping and cleaning can wait :)

andrewjune said...

part & parcel of life...

you mite wanna consider go for a short holidays with hubby & the lil missy...then you will come back...fully recharged!
at least, you will hv few days with a diff routine!

Mummy Gwen said...

Yes, once a while need to release tension a bit. It's ok to rant about it. I think most working mums experience the same issue. When I was staying at my bro's house in SG for 2 weeks, my SIL was having the same routine like yours too. She is a working mum too. Come back and cook for the son. Do housework, laundry then watch TV a bit at the same time layan anak then sleep around 11PM. When I was there I helped them do housework lor. Sometimes cook too.

jazzmint said...

at least u got somebody to help, i run the same chore from 730am to 9pm every other day for 6 weeks in every 2 months!!! Hang in there :). Life will change eventually.

allthingspurple said...

haiyoh, same here lor!! NO maids and I dont expect MIL to help even though she lives here now. Everyday after work, it's a rush to pick kids up from school and daycare, then run to kitchen to prepare food for them (and MIL) then run through their homework with them, and prepare their extra curiculum bags, daycare bags etc for tmrw, then after they finally got to bed, finish my datelines from work, do laundry, wash up kitchen..me so bored (and exhausted, hahaha) everyday too. But hang in there. This stage will pass when kids are older(finger crossed)

LittleLamb said...

aiyo dont loh hey ok. buy a bigger washing machine so that u can wash clothes twice a week!!! heehhe ok la. this is part n parcel of life. Life is good. Life goes on..


yum cha tmrw or tuesday? i'm in KLCC.

Bryan and Brandon's Mama said...

That's because you don't have a maid so you have a lot to do. Don't worry lah, it's normal to go through a rut. I go through it every other day but I guess in my case, the kids keep me so busy (and entertained) that by the time I realise I am in a rut, I'm out of it already!! Hope you feel better soon.
P/S: my work sucks too :):)

Mommy Ling said...

same thing like u..except i dun cater for food since my kids have their meal at bb sitter hse. Me cincau white rice with egg kao tim. Except i need to sleep early with the gals cos the big one need to go school. So at times, a lot of hse work pending also...sienzzz

Adrine said...

You're so hardworking laa... for me, I push certain housework like sweeping/mopping/laundry to weekends only. House not so clean, but just tutup mata only ;)

coffeesncookies said...

are you having post holiday syndrome ? life's like that la.. god made women esp moms to be able to withstand the same day in day out shit. Organize and prioritize yr work. Laundry need not be cleared everyday. Do it alternate days. Get more uniforms for missy so u dont' need to wash every night. I was livid when I found the school package only provide 2+1 piece. I quickly bought another 2 to last me one whole. Washing and cleaning up.. wait till she's asleep, after all you have to wash her milkcup/bottle too right ?
And learn to be less fussy, no need to be so clean la.. I mop only once a wk and manage to get by with whatever time I have.
take a deep breath. . breathe in .. out... go for old town or get the new iphone if it makes you feel better.. but remember.. the routine will be back, just look at it in a different light.. appreciate your blessings and don't compare with what-if's or only if's k ?
take care...

prince n princess mum said...

so boring...

slavemom said...

Looking at ur schedule, I don't feel bored at all. I feel very TIRED! I know u're a clean-freak. But try to be lesser of that, ok babe? *hugz*

Merryn said...

be like me. enjoy life. let the house be in a mess a day... then clean it up tomorrow... at least u have one day to play with missy... i dun do laundry everyday, do it every other day.we are not superMoms u know...

hugs.. :D

mom2ashley said...

hang in there irene. perhaps you gotta close one eye on somethings so that you can spend more time with family. hire a part time maid to clean up the house or something....

good luck!

Alice Law said...

Well, hang on there, it's really hard to be a mom and it's harder to be a dedicated one! Don't push yourself too much and go for a break or vacation if you can!;)

mNhL said...

Take it easy. That's life. I'm also tired with my routine but sometimes, quite enjoying it. haha...

Maybe you can mop and sweep the floor on your off days since everyone working during day time, the floor won't be so dirty right?
