A Sick Mommy and the Case of the Missing Keys

Ugh. I’m feeling under the weather today. Actually, I haven’t been feeling well since last night. But since I have a few things to finish for work, I slept late again. 🙁 Today, my body finally gave in. My throat is soar, I have a runny nose and I have a really, really, really bad headache.

I’m just thankful that our neighbor agreed to babysit The Minis for us. She’s been babysitting for us every time we need to leave the kids for a few weeks now. She’s been doing an awesome job! The kids like her and we never ever come home to dirty kids. Very maalaga talaga. 🙂

What about our temporary yaya, you ask? Well, she only came to work on her first day. After that, she didn’t show up na. Hay! It’s not like we overworked her. I just asked her to watch The Little Man for what–two hours tops maybe–while I worked, then after that, I took care of the kids. People talaga, ano? Okay, enough about our temporary yaya. Nakaka-bad vibes lang yan.

So there. I’m in bed right now. I know I should just be resting kaso ang boring eh! I don’t have a television here in my room (we’re at my parents’ house) so I have nothing else to do. That’s why I’m keeping myself busy with blogging and Bitstrips. Hehehe. Here’s something I did earlier today:

Lost keys

We are like this every. single. day. Ang hilig niya kasi magtago ng mga bagay sa kasuluk-sulukan ng bahay tapos hindi niya maalala later on kung saan niya nilagay. Minsan yung P1,000 bill tinupi niya ng sobrang liit tapos hindi makita kung saan niya tinago. Kanina naman yung susi ng kotse nilagay niya sa ‘secure’ place para hindi maabot ng mga bata tapos hindi makita noong aalis na. Ang result, na-late sa trabaho.

I really should buy Memo Plus for Daddy A! Does that work? I sometimes find his forgetfulness funny, but most of the time, I get annoyed. Haha! Syempre, sa akin niya kasi palagi hinahanap yung mga nawawalang items.

I shall end the post here. This sick mommy needs to get some rest! Have a nice day!
