Day-off is Also Work Day for Me

An average income earner like me has day-offs equivalent to work days, too. It is simply because the household cannot afford a help especially with the economic situation. So how do I find time for R and R?

When it’s weekend, from work, I look around the house to see what needs to be done. In my mind, I would list down what needs cleaning and organizing. The countdown begins after lunch on Saturdays (because I still have work until 12 am). After doing some simple chores, I would have my first R for not more than an hour. Some naps lasted more than an hour but they are mostly not exceeding an hour. Then work will commence. The second R will include submitting my Photohunt take and while doing this, I try to simultaneously watch tv with the kids, or at times, with one of them. The short process of posting a photo for Photohunt usually takes longer. 😀 Then work again will be continued.

The following day will be a continuation again. I cannot afford to be lazy or sick because I cannot stand disorder and mess. What about R and R for this day? It’s the usual routine. While doing the laundry, I will sneak my blogging, bloghopping, writing, or submission of articles, and together with these, I watch tv with the family.

We were watching Across the Universe movie at HBO and it made me reminisce about the Beatles.


If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
’cause I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her

If I trust in you, oh please
Don’t run and hide
If I love you too, oh please
Don’t hurt my pride like her
’cause I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two
cause I couldn’t stand the pain
and I would be sad if our new love was in vain

so I hope you see that I
would love to love you
and that she will cry when she learns we are two.

If I fell in love with you
