Photo: 1- my cool reward 2- finished chore
A Sunday, and I am home alone.
I kissed my husband and kids before they went hiking, waving enthusiastically and wishing them a great time. Hay, finally, alone! What to do? Relax with a book, watch tv, take a nap or take a long luxurious bath? Hmm...
But first I need to clear up the breakfast table. I rinsed the plates and utensils and put them into the dishwasher, which I had to turn on as it's already full.
Then I had to tidy up in my kids' room, as they got interrupted from sorting their toys. No more sortings, actually.
Then I picked up the laundry basket (also full) to bring down to the laundry room. Nope, I resisted the call of the washing machine!
I turned on the cassette tape and Side A's Joey filled the air with 'Foolish Heart' (complete with crowd hysteria (Side A Live - The Anniversary Concert). Singing along heartily, I declared, time to groove.
Alright! Then I grabbed the iron board, the iron and the items to be pressed - party time! I let Side A dictate my moves, and loved the cheers of the crowd, -- press, spray, press, spray - hang the clothes, (while singing along) and the rhytmn continues -- feeling ko ang galing ko mag plantsa ba!
After more than an hour, I'm finished with ironing. And I had to interrupt Side A from crooning 'Forever More' - no more for me. (Because of an ironing overdose, even managed to blog about it, huh!) Then a small break, that was the blogging period.
Time to put away the ironed items - which brought me into the kitchen, the dishwasher's finish. Had to clear it up, opening and closing cupboards -- putting the plates and utensils into order. Huh, another break, I think.
Chose the ref this time - a cool break, with ice sticks! Sat myself in the terrace while devouring it in a few seconds. Now what, still silence.
Finally, got to put my feet up and read a book.
(Kids and husband came a few minutes after though!)
