So a lot has happened since the last time I posted in this blog in August. For starters, I am now a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) and I am loving it so far. I left the company I worked for for the last 20 years at the end of September.
It was bitter sweet.
Bitter because I was going to miss being part of family and miss working with my colleagues. Sweet because I get a taste of being a SAHM after 20 years. Just to be clear, I didn’t hate working with the company I worked for. I loved the culture and the flexible work arrangements which was why I stayed on with them for 20 years!
Yes. 20 years.
I feel old!!!!
But rest assured, I feel young ok!? I am young at heart. Always. Age is only but a number. Bleh.
It has been 3 weeks and what have I been doing?
For starters, I have been waking up late. It isn’t as nice as I thought. In fact, sleeping in sucks because I feel that I’m wasting precious time. It’s tough waking up early in the morning but I feel so better afterwards for being productive.
Before my last day of work, I had big plans. But when the time came, I didn’t expect to be so slack in managing my own time! Seriously. When I was working full time, I worked (at home) from 8.30am-5.30pm (officially) and managed my personal time around working hours. So in a way, my time was managed properly. Then came 1 Oct, my time management went downhill.
Well, I figured since I am a SAHM now, I reduced AK’s time at the daycare from full day to half day which is 5 flexible hours. But once I sent her off to daycare, I lazed around and sometimes sleep again, slip into the social media black hole and that’s it. Before I knew it, I had to pick her up, pick the 2 bigger kids up from school, prepare dinner and that’s it.
But I am cutting myself some slack. After all, I’ve been working for the past 20 years. I do deserve to slack a bit right?
Anyhow, I have started spending more time with my oily
obsession passion. I teach people how to kick chemicals to the curb and start their chemical free life journey 🙂 It is something that I am very passionate about. What is this about? Well stay tuned! If you follow me on my Facebook, you’d see more regular updates on what I have been up to.
Till then, take care!!!
Be warned, you may get more rants from this newly SAHM here. heheheheh
