I Need a Break!

Sadly, we were just a three-man team during my Mom-in-law’s wake. We don’t have the luxury of a maid or someone else to do things for us so we had no choice but to arrange everything for the wake and the funeral by ourselves. Until now, I can feel the exhaustion. It was the most stressful experience we had both physically and emotionally. Now that my Mom-in-law was laid to rest, I want to relax by giving myself a much needed break. However, it is impossible for me to go out and take a guilt-free break because of my pending tasks, pile of laundry and RJ’s pre-quarter test. So for now, I will just buy hydrating mask, foot soak, moisturizers, etc., using my forever 21 coupons and give myself a spa day at home. These simple pleasures are proven tension-tamer and stress-reliever…a much needed pampering to condition myself to be able to function well. For what? Well, just imagine the chores that I need to do every single day…I get meals on the table and pack lunches everyday, I clean the house, cater to RJ’s needs, make sure hubby is comfortable at home, tutor RJ, do the accounting and logistics and a hundred of other things. Hey, I am not complaining. I know it is my job but I am not a robot. I am a person too who works, gets tired and stressed. Every working people needs break. Besides, I deserve it, don’t you think?

  1. You deserve it mommy! Anyone who’s been through as much as you did the past few days deserve some time off to just relax. Take as much time as you need, so you can come back full of energy for all the other things that you need to do 🙂
