And I repeat..
I’m Pretty AND Busy.
That’s the flair I added to my Facebook corkboard yesterday because I was literally busy working from morning until midnight. My exhaustion was reflected on my late dinner at 9 pm with a hefty meal composed of 1 1/2 pcs of crispy Chicken Mcdo and about 3 (or more) cups of rice. I felt so bloated afterwards but I was relieved and energized. It was more than enough to recharge me from my all-day blogging. I retired the night overly tired and brain fried but my consolation was I had a very productive day.
And today, I’m on to my Uber Busy Day 2. Aside from my online works, we have offline duties to fulfill: Asher’s well baby checkup in a while and earlier, we went to the Developer’s office to get some pertinent forms in connection still with the M Project.
So for another hectic day…I repeat: I am STILL Pretty And Busy.
Inspired by Litzie’s post a few weeks ago.
On Work: So so so busy. Here goes the cliche again - Overwhelmed but thankful. I’ve never been this busy in the entire 3 years that I’ve been doing this online work. Bro has been so generous and He certainly knows who need these blessings the most.
*So there, I may be locked inside the room and online most hours of the day but it doesn’t mean that I’m being idle or engaging in purely entertainment or for anything else. I’m being productive, I’m working hard as this is how I earn.*
On Shopping Freeze: Doing great. I occasionally shopped a few online, all were Asher’s stuffs but these (Old Navy loots) will serve as his Christmas gifts. Nonetheless, I’ve improved so much ever since we focused seriously on saving for the M Project and self-imposed a belt-tightening measures. Except for the domains I purchased (which is for work “expansion”..meaning more income opportunities in the future), I haven’t shopped anything for myself for a number of months now.
On Weight: Still stagnant and underweight…geez. I don’t know how much appetite should I put on more.
On Motherhood and Family: Smitten. Amazed. Stressful yet very much enjoying it. You might have noticed the baby shower and pregnancy invitations I’ve been blogging about these past few days but nah, we have the M project as our major goal for now.
On Living Arrangement: We’ve adjusted well here in Frisco. The husband has gotten used to a longer commuting time to and from the office. We still can’t wait though for the M goal to materialize. It’s still different when you have your own place to manage and control fully.
2. Facebook indulgence
3. Staying up late
4. Waking up later than Asher
5. Care less about not having exercise
6. Being moody
8. Whole day surfing
9. Too much OC-ness (sometimes)
10. The tendency to splurge
Hay…when can I ever manage my time effectively kaya?
I have mentioned recently that I’ve been blessed with a handful of online works since last week and since then, the more I’ve neglected the tasks that I have put off for so long.
There’s still Asher’s 1st birthday photobook that’s still just half-baked. I totally lost my creative mojos and I think, I have now forgotten how to digiscrap. I even can’t remember to which folder in my external hard disk have I saved the layouts. Asher turned 18 months last September 2 so it’s been half a year since the party and just 6 months to go before his second birthday and no 1st birthday party photobook still…bad!
Then I also initiated two new online projects the other week. Until now, I haven’t progressed to anything because I am too tied with the online tasks that flooded my way.
Asher’s monthly pictures printing also halted. I still have to go through my files to know which batch to upload now on Artscow.
Then there are mommy duties that I have to attend to. I can not just say “No” to Asher when he demands my breast milk at random times of the day. It’s a good thing though that he is now more playful and has become less dependent on me that’s why I can work in our room longer in deep concentration. We’re also lucky to have a doting Yayay Becca who looks after the little one while I work..she’s a blessing to us, really.
I’ve been meaning to give this blog a revamp but obviously, I haven’t changed a thing.
Hay… can I have an extra set of hands or can we add even just a couple of hours in a day to accommodate all these tasks?
So many things to do…so little time.
A very overused line and I think it will be more in the days and weeks to come. I am not complaining though because more work means more money. More money means more savings. More savings means the closer we get to that M Project. Yes, M Project…my motivation amidst this overwhelming feeling. Notice how I emphasized the M Project and didn’t use “more savings means more shopping money” like the way I used to.
The husband must be proud of the reformed me. Haha!
