November are one of my favorites and important months besides April (chrissa’s birthday), May (hubby’s birthday and lots of holidays), July (my bithday), August (our wedding day) and December! (most relatives birthday falls on this month and..need i elaborate more on xmas?)
November is the month i started my journey as a mother..receiving my first bundle of joy, struggling to balance between motherhood and career, the month where it all begin. Its like an ‘alarm’ to tell you that ‘end of the year is near’.
Its time to plan for a new year… a new resolution.. budget..for the house, kids….i should check auto insurance comparisons, i might get another car..mmm i hope so.
My son, Sean Matthew Francis.. born on November 8, 2003
I dream of being a mother,
my dream come true,
I wanted to have a son,
now i am holding you,
It seems like yesterday
You learn to talk and walk
Oh my little baby boy
You are 5 years old today!
No more turning back.. you will learn so many things ahead of you!
Happy Birthday Sean Matthew… we love you more and more each day.. mummy pray to God, to guide and protect you, and the angels will always be with you.
Yesterday my friend asked me for favour.. write invitation cards.. for her parent’s anniversary.. well i have no objection as long as she can send me home with the invitation cards. We suppose to do it together at her house, but due to her last minute work she cancelled it but she asked her driver to send me back home with the invitation cards.
Me and my bestfriend split the invitation list, we had promised to do it together, atleast we can do it on time. Today, we promised to meet up at my friend’s house to do invitation cards, i am thinking of going there early so that i can come back home early, as usual my maid’s time to go back is around 5.00pm on Saturday.
I heard knocking on the door at 7.30am, wah… so early my maid today, normally on Saturday she will come around 8.00am.. opened the door.. ‘kak, saya tidak boleh kerja ini hari, my grandmother passed away’ ( i cannot work today, my grandmother passed away’) i was still standing there, i dont know what to say.. but how can i say no to her… ‘tidak apa lah ko balik lah’ (its okay you can go back).. still dont know what to do, i have promised my friend but who’s going to take care of my children, my parents were still in Kuala Penyu… luckily i remember my niece and nephew whom staying with my parents today… i called her if its okay for my kids be with her today… no objection… great.. problem solved.
By the time the children woke up, i was preparing breakfast .. mee goreng.. they took their bath, packed their bag.. and off they go with the daddy.. ‘bye mummy, i love you’.. kiss kiss… i look at them waving to me… eagarly to go to my parents house… phew.. so here i am Home Alone.
I am sitting down here waiting for my friend to fetch me up, but i know its not going to be early so i just blog.. usually if i’m going somewhere, with or without children at home, i will still rush to do whatever housechores i need to do before i leave the house.. but today.. i leave everything as it is…the toys are still on the floor waiting to be kept, the floor waiting to be swept, the plates and paella pan in the sink need to be washed.. but i just forget about it… i love to feel what i felt right now… home alone doing nothing.. i left my house at 3.00pm… without doing anything… i’m looking forward for another opportunity of Home Alone!
