C is used to going out. Last season, we went out a lot and during the days that there were plenty of house chores for me to do and can’t leave the house, I at least let him spend time in the garden. Today, he is very grumpy because he’s not allowed to go out, not even to the garden. It’s raining and I’ve got plenty of things to do. Most are routine house chores, then some extra cleaning (because my in-laws are coming this weekend-haha!), and some personal projects I want to finish (like writing this post for instance). I am so busy. I can’t even begin to think which thing to do first. Writing this post is a must because otherwise, this blog will go on another month without a new post. Then there’s also the design of this blog. As you can see, I started it but I am nowhere near finishing it. It is functional, at least. The aesthetics will have to come much later as it is in the bottom of my mile long list.
Going back to C, he’s now taking his daily nap. His daily naps are so precious to me in a way that I think that I have this time just for me, and that I should do what I want and that’s exactly what I am doing right now by blogging, but I have to hurry because I have to prepare his lunch before he wakes up at around 1:30. Sigh! When you’re a mom, having “a time for yourself” is almost impossible. Yes, you can have time away from your husband and baby but seldom can you really spend that time on yourself alone because you’ll most likely just spend the time doing things for them.
So before I go on boring you by telling you all the things I have to do, I will stop now and leave you with this photo.
I love autumn. I love the colors, the lights, the mild temperature, and the overall feeling of life slowing down. But I am not so sure about C because right now, no matter how many times he says “go out”, “bye bye”, and “broom broom”, he’ll still be staying in the house and that’s making him more grumpy.
