WITL #20 – Graduation Exam (Ujian Negara) 2017

Sunday, 14 May 2017

11.49pm the kids are on bed. I’m on my bed planning for the week. I even have full schedule on the boy’s music classes​ at church till end July. No school for the next 2 months, yet I have full schedule for music classes. Mom is always on the go 😁 

Had my nap after church. Lately I really need my power nap. I don’t feel much energy these few weeks. I feel terrible. Hubby is helping on the dishes. I’m so grateful. 

I did my load of towels and a load of laundry. Folding and ironed clothes. Then I had to help Abe preparing on his graduation exam. Tomorrow is the 1st day. We’ll be busy preparing till Saturday. 

After that, I have to help Al prepare his final exam. Like I said, mom is always busy 😌

UN (graduation exam) day 1 – Bahasa Indonesia. 

1.54pm Abe was having problems at tutor, said that he couldn’t concentrate on Math (tomorrow’s exam). I asked him about what happened. He said, I still have Bahasa Indonesia exams in my head 😰 

I told him, what’s past is passed. Let go… Coz we no longer in control to that. What’s need the attention is what’s coming next. 

I prayed for him and now he’s napping. Hopefully, he got up fresh and ready to tackle Math πŸ™ 

Now let’s tackle mine… Housework 😁 But 1st… 

It’s so hot so I’m making ice coffee and it’s my 3rd cups of coffee today, at 2.04pm 😎 

7.55pm I’m in my room doing my blogging and planning while Abe is busy with his math.

I’m clueless in this subject, but at least I’m presence for him πŸ˜„

Tuesday, 16 May 2017

UN (graduation exam) day 2 – Math

3.51pm I’m on the go. Having this energy and keep moving. Done all of my daily cleaning routines then move on to my cleaning schedule, cleaning the top of the fridge

Look at that 😨 Can you see the difference? I have this in my cleaning schedule but I keep procrastinating coz who would’ve seen right? You have to be tall like really tall to be able to see the top of the fridge. But since I’m on the mood, I did it and feel soooooooo satisfied πŸ˜… 

8.07pm I didn’t get to do the rest of my list coz we got company. So it has to wait till tomorrow. Now, I have to help Abe with his science πŸ‘Œ

Wednesday, 17 May 2017

UN (graduation exam) day 3 – IPA (Science)

3.45pm the boys are napping. I just finished cooking, kinda late coz I got VA works to do. Doing my 2nd load of laundry. The 1st load was 2 blankets and 1 ironing cover. Now it’s a load of clothes. I still have lots to do before Abe start studying for tomorrow’s exam.

I still have tons to do and feel so tired, wonder why πŸ€” Yesterday I could’ve done all, rather than delaying it again, while I’m​ the mood, you know… Well, things happen. Now I don’t feel like doing them πŸ˜₯ 

8.55pm I finally get to scrub my bathroom. I can finally check it off my list that’s been days writing them over and over again 😰 It’s unlike I delayed it for months, it’s only days, but when it’s in my schedule, I can’t just let it go. I know I shouldn’t burden myself like that, but yeah… It’s just me and my brain 😌

I’m here in my room helping Abe for test tomorrow. He did PKN at tutor, now he’s preparing Christian, while as usual I’m doing my planner and blogging 😁

Thursday, 18 May 2017

8.31pm and I’m closing my eyes 😴 Nooooooo!!! I need to stay awake, Abe is still studying for tomorrow’s exam 😰 

I’m so tired 😰 

I still skip some. Oh hell… I’m skipping πŸ‘Œ It’s good to have your to do list, but don’t be its slave. Listen to your body. If it’s screaming asking you to stop working, then you stop. Those things will be there tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, and the next. Take it easy. Give yourself permissions to have some slack 😎 

Friday, 19 May 2017

3.19pm I finally get the heart on brushing these wheels… 

Really you guys… These wheels are messing with my floor. They’ll get dirty very easily and those sticky dirts are transferring to the entire house, coz the boys are swirling the chairs around, all over the house 😰 

7.17pm I score today! πŸ€— By this hour, I finished 90% off my to do list. The house is clean and picked up, the kitchen is clean, boys are on bed, and I need my reward 😁

Which one should I see 1st πŸ€” M. Night Shyamalan’s movies are always intriguing. Maybe I should go with Split 1st πŸ€“ 

Saturday, 20 May 2017

My boy is officially a teen πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Today is his last exam. The very last! The last day of elementary school πŸ‘ 

3.30pm we’ve finished changing all the bed sheets, now I’m moving on to my cleaning schedule. 

Today is washing curtains of the kid’s and Oma’s room. While it’s running, I get to clean the rods, the vents, and the walls. What’s your cleaning schedule? It’s good in keeping tracks and making cleaning schedules, so we know that our house is regularly cleaned and not worrying about the kid’s inhaling dusty air in the house. 

Health is expensive and it breaks my heart when the children gets health issues. Having cleaning schedule eases my mind. Though I’m not so tough on myself. 1-2 days delay wouldn’t do any harm πŸ˜‰ Just enjoy your motherhood coz we wouldn’t know when we stop doing it. Live the moment πŸ˜„

Sunday, 7 May 2017

8.49pm I’m ready to do my computer works. 

I didn’t do much chores today. I’m so bad when I’m in my period. So bad. Back from the church at 12 something, had lunch with my kids, then napped all the way to 4.30pm 😨 

Cooked dinner…

Tortilla wraps, sauteed corn & long beans, salsa chicken. The kids love it. I still have so much leftovers​, so tomorrow definitely not a cooking day for me. I will do my catch up πŸ˜‰

Monday, 8 May 2017

7.38pm I gotta get Abe from school early for he was having a headache πŸ˜”

I gave him lunch, paracetamol, and let him sleep. When I tried to wake him up for tutoring, he was still pretty sick. So I let him sleep some more. I hope nothing’s serious πŸ™

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

8.43pm I was playing catch-up for yesterday’s to do list and now I’m pretty wiped out. I was asleep at around 9pm yesterday and now I’m on my bed, ready to sleep. Lately, I really can’t stay up late. Something’s not right. I don’t feel well this last 2 weeks. I hope it’s just my period sickness thingy. I need to get back on track. ASAP 😫

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

10.55am sent both kids​ to school. It’s a cloudy day. I hope I have some energy to do my housework. 

Thursday, 11 May 2017

My breakfast…

Avocado, tomato​, whole wheat bread butter toast, peanut butter, banana, and coffee (of course) πŸ‘Œ

Friday, 12 May 2017

2.34pm I don’t feel well. I feel weak 😨

I didn’t do anything. Now I’m running a load of jeans, jackets, and bags. Still have clothes to fold and iron. I just want to sleep πŸ˜₯

I’m trying so hard to get on my feet and start working, but I’m so weak 😭

I’m now on my bed doing some planning, at least I got something done. 


Laundry done. The only thing I get done today πŸ˜₯

Saturday, 13 May 2017

We’re doing our Saturday chores and then we’ll go to aunt’s house.

WITL #17 – Frugal Vacation

Sunday, 23 April 2017

4.43pm I had a good nap hohoho 😎

I got up at 6am, had my coffee, a load of bed sheets, went to church, back from church, a load of towels, and nap with the kids 😁

6.05pm hubby is finally setting up Abe’s drum. We moved on December and haven’t set it up since.

Abe is having drum audition on the 30th, so he needs to practice. Loosen up his drumming muscles πŸ˜€

I will have a review on his drum later this week. Be sure to hit the ‘follow’ button so you don’t miss it πŸ˜‰

Monday, 24 April 2017

10.59am ready to hit the road heading to Panjang Waterfall in Mega Mendung. We’re having a frugal holiday… We’re ​bringing our food.

I love seeing the kids blends in with nature 😍

7 of us spent less than IDR100k. Zero spending on food. Vacation doesn’t have to be expensive πŸ‘Œ

I didn’t have any knowledge of being content in my childhood. No one ever taught me how to be happy and grateful in any situation I was in. I was in my own world of depression, thinking that I didn’t have enough, I complained a lot, dwelling on whatever situation I was in, angry for those who treated me wrong, for those who didn’t love me enough. No sense of grateful in me. I thought that certain lifestyle was the only way to happiness.

Now, I am determined to give my boys the legacy of being content. The knowledge that God owns it all. That in whatever situation, there will always have something to be grateful for. That whoever they are, they are blessed and anointed by The Almighty God. That nothing would have happens without God’s permission. In that thought alone, they should be a person who will always seek God’s 1st. Coz God is the center of the universe. Not them. Not anybody else in this world. Only God.

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

9.05am did my morning routines. Gonna do some catching up today. Today is going to be busy.

Thursday, 27 April 2017

7.36am good morning! 😘 Let’s have some healthy breakfast

IMG_20170427_073636

Butter toast, peanut butter, banana, avocado, and granola. And of course… A cup of invisible coffee β˜• πŸ˜€

Friday, 28 April 2017

8.32pmΒ Just finished watching this movie. Oh my Lord… Tears guys tears! From the beginning to the end… Tears 😭 My eyes are swelling… BIG 😡

I love true story movies. How genuine and how much I learn to be grateful and how my faith is stronger that God is Almighty. God can turn every bad things around for your privilege. God will make up for the loss times. We may not see any good sign right now, it’s not going to happen as we wanted to, but God is working His way. God is full of surprises.

Gosh… This movie is not a religious movie… Yet, I can see God is working in our lives through this movie. God always takes care of us, even when we see right now is total darkness. Have faith. Stay strong. Keep the right attitude. Prepare ourselves to receive the blessing. Be grateful πŸ™ Okay, let me cry some more 😭

Oh… I’m very sorry I didn’t blog on Tuesday & Wednesday, kinda an overwhelming days πŸ˜ƒ

WITL #16 – To Do List

Sunday, 16 April 2017

6.56pm today is definitely my off day 😁 Woke up at 8am, hussle through the morning coz church is at 9am and it’ll take 15 minutes to church πŸ˜‚

Love that Al is finally have a Sunday School he enjoys

So cute to see lil boys praying 😍

After church, we went to my aunt’s house coz my cousin stayed over night there, and the boys love playing with my nephew. The 3 of them gets along well.

Came back home and it’s already dinner time. The rice is in the rice cooker. Once it’s done, I’m gonna fry the fish for dinner. Abe is preparing for test tomorrow.

I literally don’t do anything today πŸ‘ Precious moment 😁

Monday, 17 April 2017

11.25am at the Advan Service Center. AGAIN 😫

I will definitely review them 😀

It is 8pm and the kitchen is clean. Feel soooooooo good! Even though the rest of the house is still a chaos, but a clean kitchen at night is a trophy πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

The kitchen is hubby’s works. Works on his own, alone, nobody helps him, and he loves doing it. Not a catalog picture like, but it’s​ more than enough for me. As long as I have a home for all the kitchen gadgets, a clean countertop, and I can cook delicious food for the family, I’m a happy mom πŸ˜‰ The wall cabinets are 6yo, didn’t buy from any store, hubby’s homemade, and it’s already moved 3 houses, still hanging strong 😍

Gonna have my shower and let’s see if I still have energy to do anything else 😝

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

9.33pm computer on, glasses on, music on, working mode is ON.

Let me show you my checklist 😁

This has been working well with me this 2 weeks. I don’t know what to name my kind of planning, but it does helps. I just use A5 binder that I already have. 1 page for 2 days. I write down literally everything that I need to do that day. Every single thing. It really helps me on track. Coz things get slipped my mind so easily then I’ll feel like I don’t accomplish anything yet I’m exhausted and it brought me down.

This very long list, keeps me working, like when I feel like I want to sit and watch TV, I’ll look at my list and gotten whipped to get up and do another and another and another. A really effective reminder. Still… I don’t have to be so hard on myself as I allow myself to skip some of them to be on the list tomorrow. And I skipped a lot 😁 We’re a mom and we do work hard, skipping things is definitely allowed. Coz our work is a never ending works. Keep yourself happy to keep the family happy πŸ˜†

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

8.37am I’m supposed to go to Jakarta to vote, but my boys are at school. No holiday, no voting πŸ˜₯

So today… Let’s just start my routines 😁

I just finished folding my cleaning rags.

Stock up cleaning rags as many as possible. Whether its an old shirts or old towels. Change your cleaning rags every single day. Coz cleaning with a dirty rags is making your cleaning uncleaned. If that makes sense. I don’t like handwashing, so I dumped them all in the washing machine once a week. If I don’t stock up, I either using dirty​ rags or handwash my rags πŸ˜‘

11.07am and let’s make snacks for the kids

I made the brownies without realizing that I have no more butter πŸ˜₯ I made it anyway, adding 1 more egg hoping that it’ll make it right. But no… It’s chewy and not good at all. Nobody is eating eat 😫 Even making a cake out of a package could be a failure for me 😌

1.33pm let’s just move on from the brownies failure and dig in to this yummy lunch of mine πŸ˜‹

Chicken barbeque, spinach, and corn. Gotta eat fast coz I only have 10 minutes before I gotta pickup Al from school πŸ˜‰

4.28pm let’s tackle this…

My vanity is kinda mess for so long. It’s dusty and messy 😫 It’s already transformed from a vanity to a junk drawer 😫 . I’ll take you to the journey in the next post.

6.52pm still rumbling through all the house works and Al is calling me to help him on his school project 😌

Look at the mess πŸ˜‘

9.27pm the kitchen is still a mess but I determined to have a reward. My dinner…

Of course I don’t eat all πŸ˜‚ One is for hubby πŸ‘Œ

Friday, 20 April 2017

7.00pm sharp and I finished all of my house works πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

All of my morning, noon, and night to do list are checked πŸ‘Œ

An achievement that can really humor me in the middle of having a troubled Instagram 😌 My Instagram is in a freeze mode that it can’t refresh feeds and I can’t open my account πŸ˜‘

I think I should update it 1st but my phone is so full that there’s no room for an update 😌 How I need a phone with a huge internal memory πŸ™

I already uninstalled Photogrid and it’s still full 😀

Saturday, 21 April 2017

2.07pm and I’ve finished most of my daily routine. Change bed sheets, wash bed sheets, declutter, dust, sweep, and I’ve done my food prep. Haven’t stop moving since 6am and when I checked my lists, it feels soooooooo good πŸ˜‰

I went to wet market to stock on chicken and fish. But 1st… Let’s clean the freezer and wash the bins.


Food prep is done…

I have 8kg of chicken and fish in those bins. I separated the chicken and the fish, each having each bin. Washed and seasoned. I just need to defrost them in the fridge at night, ready to be cooked the next day.

I do the same for my produce. Wash, cut, keep in containers, take each container to cook. It saves me a ton of time. Managing my time between house works, picking up the boys, and cooking would be a lot easier if I prepare myself ahead of time. Trust me… It helps​ me big time.

Like preparing lunch for hubby, takes only a chunk of my time.

That BBQ fish has been seasoned since last week. I just need to burn it for 10 minutes, make sambal soy sauce, cut a tomato and cucumber. I also made my sambal ahead of time. 250g of chili padi made a jar of sambal, keep in a fridge, ready for a week. So… 10 minutes of preparing lunch while doing my house works. Not bad huh πŸ‘Œ

3.39pm just finished my shower. I was just trying to chill down in the bathroom. Soaking my relax bathroom moments. And saw that my bathroom could use some of my touch, then I started scrubbing 😌 I am really into this real housewives thingy πŸ˜‚ Without the blink blink of course…

WITL #15 – Finding A Church

Sunday, 9 April 2017

8.28pm just sent the kids to bed. Kitchen cleaned. It’s drizzling outside and it’s very warm in the house 😌

We went to church today πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I’m so proud of myself πŸ˜† Finally get to dragged my ass to a church πŸ˜‚

We tried a different church today. It’s 30 minutes from our house but it was worthed πŸ˜‡ The boys love the Sunday School and I feel comfortable. Abe even signed up for drum class. Hope he gets the class. The audition is on 30 April πŸ™

After church, I did my laundry and cleaning. And was in the mood of planning. So, I did a lil planner project.

I tried the stickery colorful planner and it didn’t work out for me. I tried the big binder, Home Management binder, didn’t work out also. I think because it’s too big for me to flip through and I can’t carry it around. I’m trying my own type of planning. I’m gonna make a different post on it. Maybe on May, after I try it out for couple of weeks.

Monday, 10 April 2017

Just doing same old routines and I’m not quite myself these few days. I’ve been procrastinating and one of the result is…

Piles of clothes need to be folded πŸ˜₯

Plus… I have an issue with a friend of mine. Her son is in the same class as Al. It’s mommy issue. Not the kid’s issue, mommy issue 😌 It was quite annoying and I’m gonna talk to her tomorrow.

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

I spent hours at the school. Talking to her took some times and yet I don’t think she knows how to reflect on herself. Still throwing the blame on my son and making it as a jealousy matter. My son jealous of hers? Hmmm… I don’t think so 😎

But I’m gonna let her think what she wants to think and let time do its justice πŸ˜‰ I’m just gonna settle myself in my peace state of mind and let her soak in her hatred that I bet is eating her πŸ˜‚

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

Today is the kid’s last day of school before having Easter holiday. Still doing my routines and trying my best to conquer the day 😝

Hubby is still working on the kitchen and it’s coming along together.

Thursday, 13 April 2017

No school day, so I got up pretty late. Having my lazy day plus the kitchen is still in a hot mess. I just make a simple lunch for the kids.

Cheesy milky french toast 😎

Friday, 14 April 2017

Happy Good Friday!

We went to church. Stopped​ by my aunt’s house to pickup my milk.

I took a good nap at my aunt’s house. Felt so good 😁

Saturday, 15 April 2017

4.07pm the kids just got up from their nap. And I’m having me time on my bed. We changed the bed sheets. I did my laundry, fold, and iron. Dust and sweep the floor. Now, I’m gonna prepare dinner.

11.51pm I kinda lost once I received my Lemonilobox 😁 Been busy taking pictures, posting on Instagram, and writing review. I didn’t do anything again. I still have so many list that are not crossed πŸ˜‚

Oh well… I’m gonna sleep now. I can always play catch-up tomorrow after church πŸ˜„

Don’t forget to stop by and read on myΒ Lemonilobox Unboxing & Product Review

Sunday, 26 March 2017

9.37am we’re getting ready for the family gathering. I’m going to have my shower and gotta go to buy some things. 

Join me in my family gathering 

Monday, 27 March 2017

8.40am sent Abe to school. TO #2 day 1 for Abe. Now I’m getting ready to send Al to school. 

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

9.20am I didn’t blog much yesterday. Nothing interesting though. Now we’re getting ready to go to my cousin’s house with my uncle and aunt. My cousin will send them to their (uncle) son’s house in Jakarta. 

Today is holiday for Nyepi, Silent Day for Hindu. 

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

1.19am I just finished working on my online shop. 

We spent quite sometime at my cousin’s house. I always enjoy their company. Especially the boys 😁 

Reached home about 6pm. The kids had shower while I cooked them dinner. And clean my kitchen.

I wash my stove and the kitchen sink every night. I wipe down the wall, dining table, countertop, refrigerator, microwave, and kitchen cabinets with vinegar spray (vinegar, water, essential oil). Vinegar spray keeps the flies away. Since my kitchen is an open kitchen (located in the backyard), flies are easily attracted to my kitchen. Vinegar spray, clean kitchen, and empty garbage bin is a must in my night routine. 

I brought some muesli from my cousin’s and made my 1st overnight muesli. I store in a container and keep it in the fridge. 

We’ll see if I like them for breakfast. If I do, it definitely in my grocery shopping list πŸ˜„ I’ve been trying to start eating healthy food since I’m not young anymore 😁 

Finally make an After School To Do List for the boys.

I hope this works πŸ™ I’ve trying so hard not to raise my voice but the boys are sometimes very ignorance πŸ˜‘ So I’m gonna try this to do list πŸ˜„ Wish me luck πŸ€“

8.47am had my breakfast, having my coffee, 1 load of bed sheets is done. I’m gonna let it dry 1st then gonna run my 2nd load. I have laundry catch-up​ today. Hopefully it’ll be hot the entire day, so I’m able to wash all of them. 

Having my coffee and getting ready to pick up Abe from school. Al is studying for his tests today. Yesterday he didn’t study coz we’re out. So, he’s playing catch-up too. 

10.40am I don’t send Al to school πŸ˜‘ He lied to me that he doesn’t have homework. He just mentioned it last night before sleep. And he didn’t study for his tests. I woke him up early this morning for him to do his homework then study. He did 3 numbers out of 10 in 1 hour 😀 OMG! I am so so so annoyed 😀😀😀 He will finish his homework then study for tests by today! No TV for today, no Lego for today, and no games this weekend 😀 

You might not agree with me but I do what’s best for my kids. They must learn to be discipline and responsible. I will not be able to remind them forever. They must know what’s priority and what’s not. They must learn that everything has its own consequences. They must learn that mistakes should not be repeated. They must learn how to schedule themselves. They must appreciate time. They must know that school is not only about good grades. I’m more concern about their mentality rather than their grades. I know my boys are smart, but good brain without good mentality will lead you to bad judgment. I want them to know that life wouldn’t be easier as they grow. I have responsibility to prepare them for the future. And it’s hard 😒 

Thursday, 30 March 2017

8.41pm I’m exhausted. With the flu, I really don’t have any strength to do anything else 😴 

Sweep, mop, cook, 2 loads of laundry, fold clothes, clean the kitchen. I’m​hungry but don’t want to get out of bed 😴. 

Hubby made me noodle soup 😁 Steamy hot and I put a lot of chili 😘 Just what I needed πŸ€’ 

Friday, 31 March 2017

Luckily, Abe is schooling at 7.30am so I can get up a lil late. 

I’ve been craving for Saturday Bobor Daun Singkong and today is the revelation πŸŽ‰

With Tempe Goreng and sambal… OMG! Heaven! 😁

I opened up a new pack of tea and just noticed that it’s in an individual pack. I gotta check the price πŸ€”

And I couldn’t find it πŸ˜ͺ

9.44pm I did a load of laundry, sweep the floor, fold clothes. I was thinking to do ironing but I changed my mind, I thought of doing it tomorrow. And you know what? I have so many things to do tomorrow 😌

There’s no way I can iron and now it’s too late to do ironing 😫 Lesson learned, never procrastinate 😀 

Oh btw… I did my weekly spread 😁

I added​ tracker for smoothies, workout, and water. I keep forgetting to what’s good for me. I should really start to take care of myself πŸ˜” 

Saturday, 1 April 2017

9.59am waking up to a broken heart. But I refuse to dwell on my pain. I brushed​my teeth, drink a glass of water, make myself a cup of coffee, and prep my Bible journal. 

Now, my faith has been rejuvenated, God is going to turned my harm and use it to my advantage. Amen! I’m ready to jump into my to do list, which is a lot 😬 

5.26pm I finished all my to do list around 4pm and now we’re heading​ Giant Sentul. Hubby has been promising the kids to buy some snacks after they help me with the house works. And the light is out, so great timing to spend time at the mall πŸ˜‚

We have our dinner. 

Bakso Malang Goendoel and the kids are having CFC (fried chicken similar to KFC). Oh ya… It’s raining and cold, a hot meatball soup is perfect! 😁 

Al is getting a pack of bricks from CFC and as soon as finish his meal, he get on to it 😬

Look at my boy πŸ˜† So big now, I can’t even kiss him in public 😌

So the bricks is done 😁

So happy to see them like this πŸ˜†

Sunday, 19 March 2017

6.02pm Abe’s friend went back home. Boys night is over, the boys are studying, back to reality 😁 

I changed bed sheets, coz yesterday I didn’t do it. Sweep​ the floor. I did 2 loads of laundry. Sunday is towels and shower curtains laundry schedule.

That’s a load. The 2nd load was the clothes. 

12.10am I wanted to do my VA works but the signals suck 😀 So instead, I make my 1st ever planner spread 😁

No fancy planner. It’s just a big notebook I already have at home. I didn’t even print the stickers on the sticker paper, I print them using A4 paper, manually cut, I mapped out my ‘stickers’ then I glued them 😁 

I print all my stickers from Jessica Brown in her blog myplannerenvy. You should visit her blog. She’s very talented and planner addict. She’s my inspiration to start planning. Do you like my spread? πŸ˜… 

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

12.21am I just switched off my computer. VA works done for now. I’m exhausted. Today I’ve been very productive though πŸ‘ 

I went grocery shopping. Done my meal prep. Please visit my post on today’s grocery haul and meal prep. 

Done my laundry, clothes folded, dusted, sweep, mopped. Gosh… I’m so tired. And also so annoyed by my phone. I can’t even install Photo Grid now coz my memory is full 😀 I need iPhone 7+ 😒 

I’m gonna get some sleep now. So tired 😰 

7.34pm I haven’t done pretty much any of the chores πŸ˜‘ I went to Advan Service Center to fix Abe’s tablet, for the 6th times in 1 year next month 😰. After it get fixed I must sell the tablet, for how much? I wouldn’t dare guessing πŸ™„ 

Then I went to Indogrosir. I will post my grocery haul. Gosh, I haven’t even post yesterday’s grocery haul and meal prep 😫 I need my Photogrid 😭 

I spent about 1.30 hours in there 😱 I bought a lot of snacks. The boys likes snacking. I need to stock up on snack. 

I came back home, sit down for a while then off again to pickup the boys from school. Home for 20 minutes and off again to send Abe to tutor. Home again, start my laundry and setting the groceries for pictures, hang the laundry in the hanging racks and suddenly it’s time to pickup Abe from tutoring. How time flies 😭 

Now I had my shower, laying down on my bed while the boys are eating dinner and watching Pirates of the Carribean. Yeah… We’re not civilized people, we eat and watch TV 😁 

And I have this… 

I fell off from a chair when helping hubby doing some electrical issues 😭 I’m sure it’ll look worst tomorrow πŸ˜“ 

I’m tired. My leg hurts. My eyes burned. I have an upset stomach. But I need to catch up with my online shop business, fold my laundry, cleaning the kitchen, pickup the house, so many things to do when I listed out like that 😭 

We’ll see… 

11.20pm my house is still not picked up. The clothes are still on the reading bed, unfolded. But I made it clear that I need to clean up the kitchen. OMG! My kitchen was a disaster 😱 While I was washing the dishes, turns out that my uncle and aunt from Malaysia is coming over tonight, glad that I made my effort to at least have a clean and shiny kitchen 😁 

And I’m in pain right now. Like real pain. The result of me fell down this afternoon is not only the bruise on my knee but apparently it affect my stomach and everything inside. I’m feeling like my inner stomach is crashing me. I can’t even walk properly and now I can’t even lay down comfortably. It’s painful 😰 

My eyes are heavy. My brain is heady. But my body is in so much pain… I’m gonna need some pain killer 😭 

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

So happen that I feel better in the morning so I can send Abe to school as usual. And same chores. 

My uncle comes to visit from Malaysia. And we’re having other families visiting us to meet my uncle. It’s been quite some time for my uncle to see other families. 

We’re having family gathering on Sunday. So I expect to have about 50 people in my house. So happy. So merry πŸ˜€ I love family gatherings πŸ€— 

Thursday, 23 March 2017

8.47am I’m about to take my uncle visiting some families. I’ll be busy chauffeuring today πŸ˜„ 

Oh… I fixed my car. It’s the dynamo. Now, I’m going to fix my AC. I hope I just need to add the freon and nothing worst or I’m gonna have to pay more πŸ˜“ 

1.46pm I fixed the car AC. It’s the something I can’t remember 😁. And gladly it’s cheap πŸ˜‡ 

10.33pm dust, sweep, mop, laundry, no shower. Just came back from send-pickup my aunt and uncle from visiting families. It’s a cold cold weather, I’m so tired and desperately need a good deep sleep 😴 

Friday, 24 March 2017

10.19am I’m at a clinic taking my uncle to see a doctor. He doesn’t feel well. I did my laundry, did a bit of VA works, still need some folding to do and online shop works. 

Saturday, 25 March 2017

5.57pm been busy all day. Sent Abe to tutor. Took my uncle to wet market, grocery shopping for tomorrow’s family gathering. 

Had 2 pills of paracetamol for my breakfast. My headache been killing me. Had a quick nap. Did laundry, sweeping, folding, ironing. Now, I’m gonna scrub my bathroom and shower. Tonight I’ll be busy cooking for tomorrow. 

Oh… Let me show you my grown up boy 😊

He asked me to take a picture of him for his BBM profile 😁 Of course to impress his girl friends in BBM contacts, so mom is trying her best to be a photographer, I even took dozens of pictures from every angle possible before he ended up picking this picture as his profile πŸ˜‚

2.05am yup… I’m still up. Sunday – Monday couldn’t blog coz I wasn’t able to use the computer and my phone’s memory is too full to even update a single app πŸ˜ͺ

Well… I just finished working on my blog. Now, it’s official that it’s my personal blog with my own URL http://www.dessysdays.wordpress.com. Let me know what you think about the design. I started around 9pm, designing my blog then moved my contents from old site to my new site. I know that my posts are now random but I worked on categories, so you can find my posts faster by looking at the categories.

I know that I still need to work on it. But now I really need to get some sleep. Need to get up at 6 to send Abe to school. Today is his 2nd day of Try Out 1.

Btw, I cut my own hair (using kitchen scissor) on Sunday 😁

10.40am I have done most of my morning routines… I’m impressed at myself πŸ˜‚

4.27pm finding myself making chocolate cake

Been craving for chocolate cake but I can’t spend for a cake πŸ˜“ So I shop my house. Mix this and that… Tadaaaaa!!! The kids love it. It’s actually the 1st time that they find my baking is decently eatable πŸ˜‚

6.14pm the boys are doing homework while I’ll have my shower

9.50pm trying to stay awake 😴

I’m fighting to open my eyes and the internet just won’t work. The connections is soooooooo bad. So I’m on my bed now, can’t even type properly 😴 I’ll see you tomorrow

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

1.26pm 1 load of laundry done, cooking done (still have rendang slow cooking on the stove), Abe is home (today is his last TO so he’s home early), I’m going to pick up Al from school and today’s Ojek is done 😁.

Thursday, 16 March 2017

12.13am just turning off my computer after 6 hours of working with it πŸ€“. Gonna have my late dinner now, I’m starving πŸ˜‹

3.07pm done 2 loads of laundry and folded. The kids needs to put them away. I haven’t been very productive today. In fact, I’m very very sleepy 😴 Today is mopping day and I’ve been asking the boys to clean up the house, like dozen times but they’re still playing. Dragging and dragging and dragging 😀

Gosh… I need a very strong coffee β˜•β˜•β˜• Boys!!! Come on!!! Move!!! So I can move too πŸ˜ͺ Otherwise, I’ll end up taking a nap 😴

4.37pm just got up from my NAP 😁 Ya… I got my nap eventually. Couldn’t open my eyes when we’re watching Moana

I dozed off about 15-20 minutes? I’m not sure. Coz when I got up, Moana is still playing πŸ€”

I’m gonna have my coffee and start moving. The house needs some mopping πŸ‘

8.37pm the boys are in bed, the house is mopped, kitchen is cleaned, I had my shower, now putting on my girl boss suit πŸ€“

Happy that I had my nap. Only for a few minutes but it helps me survive the rest of the day.

Friday, 17 March 2017

12.25am just turned off my computer. Need to get some sleep. Need to leave early for meeting up with a client.

7.50am getting ready for my meeting. I have to publish this now, when it’s supposed to be published on Sunday πŸ˜ͺ I need to install Grab app (going by Grab to the meeting), in order to do that, I have to uninstall 3 apps including WordPress πŸ˜“ If I uninstall WordPress now without publishing my drafts, they’ll be gone. Like gone gone. Erased. Deleted. Happened to me several times and it sucks. So, I’m gonna publish it now then I’ll add up after I finish Grab-ing.

See you again later 😘

So I’ve had my experiences with Grab. I ordered at 9am. Waiting… Then the guy message me that he’s already at the gate. I ran out and no one was there. Apparently, Grab didn’t get my pickup point right. It showed someone else’s house πŸ˜“ The guy was upset and cancelled on me. Gosh πŸ™„

Then I ordered again. Waiting… Then the new guy message me that he’s lost. Long short story, he reached my house after about 20 minutes. My journey begins with him nagging about the tire got punctured because he ran off a big rock when he was looking for my house. He didn’t stop talking about it. How the car is brand new, 2 weeks old and now the tire is broken. Then he started calling here and there, talking about the punctured tire, in his dialect. While he was driving! 😫

For a while in the highway, it was a peaceful journey. Then we reached the traffic. He suggested that we enter the highway again. I looked around, everywhere was jam packed. I said no. What’s the point entering the highway? Then after a few hundred meters, the highway was emptying and we stuck. He started nagging again. Blaming me for not listening to him. All the way. Can he be more rude? 😀

We’re reaching. Only a few hundred meters away from my client’s house. I always got lost here. So many turnings and all looks the same. My Google maps kept loosing its signals, we kinda moving in circles (coz everything looks the same). He’s started to get irritated and very impatient. Well hello… You’re supposed to take me to my destination, it’s not my job to navigate you, use your GPS man! Note… He was always switching off his GPS and I told him where to turn 😫

To make my journey even worst. There’s another order coming in and he took it. While I was still sitting in the car and not being delivered to where I paid him for. He started calling the new passenger. Then he’s gotten more upset coz I haven’t found my address. Oh my goodness 😒 I was angry, upset, sad, I don’t know… Just so frustrating sitting there. I wanted to just jump out and leave him. But my client is waiting for me and expect me to work. I wasn’t gonna showed up sweating for walking hundreds meters away in my heels 😰

Then finally, I reached my destination. Anyhow, I gave him tips. I don’t know why I did that, after all the drama. But yeah… I did 😢 I gave him 1 star though πŸ‘Ž

I ordered my Grab to go home. It was a nice and peaceful journey. The guy was nice, pleasant, respectful. We had a nice chit chat all the way home. I gave him a good tips and rate him with 5 stars πŸ‘Œ.

See… I’m a reasonable lady 😁

Oh I forgot to mention that Abe’s friend is staying over. They’re having boy’s nights. Playing games and watching movies all day long. I let them. I’m trying to loosen up a bit. Giving them a reward after having so many hours of tutoring and so many exams.

7.17pm my aunt is here. With my cousin and nieces. I have a full house now πŸ˜„ I love when people come to visit. I don’t know. Having people around me kinda makes me feel joy. You know, being an SAHM really makes me numb sometimes. With all the routines and schedules and all the working. Chit chatting lighten up my mood πŸ˜†

Hi…

I was trying to blog DITL but I can’t keep up since we were moving house, so it’s overwhelming.

Now, I’m gonna try to blog weekly in Week In The Life. So, I’m gonna post every Sunday and take you in my weekly life journey.

Sunday, 8 January 2017

2.20 Got up at 9 something, clean up the kitchen, did 2 loads of laundry, folded laundry, scrubbed the bathroom, finished my shower. Now I’m gonna tackle the mess in my room.

There’s a room that’s supposed to be our closet. But hubby is still on the kitchen project and I don’t know when it’s gonna be done. Our clothes are still all over the room and the kitchen is not fully functional 😫

I’m gonna show you the before and after pics.

This room is β€˜supposed to be’ our closet

The green bin is filled with hubby’s clothes. And the smaller grey bin is filled with my clothes. Those big luggages are to be filled with the remaining clothes we left at the former house.

This is not our β€˜supposed to be’ closet.Β 

Clothes are everywhere

And this is not our β€˜supposed to be’ desk.

Monday, 9 January 2017

3.09 Just came back from Kuningan, working on my client’s works. Selfie dulu sama Al 😁

6.35 trying this pore pack for Abe since he’s starting to have blackheads.

I don’t know what’s wrong, but it couldn’t dried out, so it didn’t work. I’ll try again in a couple days.

Tuesday, 10 January 2017

Soooooooo busy. Had no time to shower nor to eat. Did my laundry, ironing, dusting, sweeping, mopping, did all of those things with sending and picking up the boys from the school and tutor.

4.36 finally have the time to shower. Lay down a minute while waiting for the time to pick up Abe from tutor.

Almost 7 and hubby just came back from our former house to take some things. And again my house is a mess.

Things are everywhere. Those are thrown inside. More things outside and in our kitchen.

Wednesday, 11 January 2017.

Didn’t start the day in a right way. So, no mood to anything at all. If I’m in a mess, I can’t do anything at all to fix the mess in the house. I’m not a robot. I have feelings and today I don’t feel good.

1.44 waiting for Abe while feeding Al. Sit alone and watching the people, finding my peace.

11 something, I finally got some strength to do some chores, thanks to Esna for visiting me. Love you gal 😘😘😘

I fold laundry, organizing the kitchen, cleaning up

Thursday, 12 January 2017

11.50 we got company!

Doing homework in the middle of the mess πŸ˜‚

Friday, 13 January 2017

I was so tired that I didn’t know what time I slept. I think it was 9 something, coz the last time I remember, I was chatting with a friend and my last reply was 9 something and it was him talking alone hahahaha. Sorry ya 😜 I got up at 6.30 right on time to send Abe to school.

6.48 laying down and watching YouTube while feeling my feet. It hurts from 12 hours chores and running errands. Still have bunch of works to do 😫

Saturday, 14 January 2017

Bed sheets day!

We change our bed sheets every Saturday. The kids do their own, the reading corner bed and Oma’s bed.

Nothing’s fancy, all blang blentong hahahaha. As long as we have clean sheets every week, that’s all what matters πŸ˜„ I gotta wait for hubby to wake up to change my bed sheets and it’s 10.52 πŸ˜ͺ

And I still need to work on this mess 😭

Our lunch.

Oseng ikan asin (ikan asin + belimbing sayur + tomat + cabai + bawang merah + bawang putih, oseng semua jadi satu, tambah air sedikit, masak api kecil sampai kering), empal, tumis tauge. Makannya panas2 sama nasi panas. Enyaaaaaaaak 😜

We don’t have anything special planned for satnight. Hopefully there’s a good movie on HBO that we can watch together at home.

I’m gonna end this weekly blog. Hope that you can follow and join my blog family. We can share interests, hobby, mom talk or whatever.

Love you…

Busy with home projects.

Sorting out / purging the boy’s books and school arts.

I’m a very sentimental person. Purging those memorable pieces is like saying goodbye. I’m so afraid that the kids or me couldn’t remember any of those moments in our life 😭

I finally can purge almost 80% of the loads out of 2 big boxes and 2 big luggages into 1 medium container. Keeping only the kid’s arts, some handwritings and some test results. I know I’m gonna need a bigger container since the kids are still have a looooooooong journey.

Then I go ahead to the next project. Sorting out my clothes and hubby’s from 2 huge luggages + 3 polybags + 3 bundles of bed sheets (apparently hubby just throw everything in the bed sheets and bundled it).

I don’t purge coz I have an idea to have a clothing capsule. So it’s basically keeping your clothes without the need to give it away or throw them, you just keep 3 months amount of clothes in the closet. And you’re going to rotate your clothes every 3 months. So it (supposed) feels like you’re having new outfits every 3 months without spending anymore money πŸ˜…

And my walking closet is finally coming around 😍 Need to get bins to organize my clothes. So excited! Thank you hubby! You’re so talented. Need longer time but yeah… It’s better than never 😘 Still need some working on his side of the closet, but mine is ready to organize 😁

3 am in the morning. Need to have my bath and get some sleep.

Monday, 16 January 2017

Luckily Abe is not late to school. My eyes were soooooooo heavy 😴

Tuesday, 17 January 2017

I didn’t blog much yesterday. I had a fever last night. I was feeling so cold and it got worst when I had my bath at 1 something. I went straight to bed and couldn’t get up this morning. Was shivering bad.

Hubby gave 2 glasses of Angkak and now I’m trying to get things done. Chicken is cooking on the stove. Got 2 loads of laundry and 1 load is running. Sweep the floor, declutter, and dusting. Now my head is spinning 😰

Wednesday, 18 January 2017

10.14 still on my short and tank plus sweatshirt, coz I still not feeling quite better. Hubby sent the kids to school. Made my coffee and hoping to get some strength to do chores today.

It’s very helpful to have hubby sending and picking up the kids. You have no idea how difficult to do chores and running here and there sending and picking up your kids with entirely different schedules.

Had my loads of laundry and they’re hang to dry, fold and iron done, declutter, cook, sweep the floor. Now waiting for the Al to be home from school and hoping to have my shower later.

Thursday, 19 January 2017

Again bad day. My eyes were swollen and painful. Bad headache. So I was slowing down. Hubby took the kids to school and I picked them up coz hubby was working on my vanity. I can’t wait to organize it πŸ˜†

6.17 Al is doing his today’s chores. Dusting the toy’s rack / books rack. I told him not to do detail cleaning coz he was complaining on how big the rack is. But then he got so intense doing his chores. Cleaning his Lego container like to its tiny corners. I managed to take pictures of him when he didn’t notice. He’s so cute 😍😘

12.50 finished all my night cleaning routine. The house is clean, the kitchen is clean, rice is cooking ready for breakfast. I had my shower and now I’m laying down, resting my feet while having my JAFRA mud mask.

Friday, 20 January 2017

Started the day just right!

Sent off the kids. Morning chores done. Did my meal prep. Now I just need to have shower and do my computer works till its time to pickup the boys from school. Enjoying my peaceful day πŸ˜†

2.08 had my lunch.

9.00 and gotta lay down resting my feet. It’s hurting me so bad 😭 My feet haven’t gotten its rest since morning and its screaming 😨

Saturday, 21 January 2017

I let the children do their chores, which is changing all the bed sheets in the house except for mine. We got total of 5 beds, so they’re changing 4 bed sheets.

While I cook lunch, sayur bening + ikan bawal goreng. I listen to the children playing, laughing and screaming. I’m pretty sure the chores will take a looooooooong time to get done. It’s okay. To get them do it, actually a sacrificial thing for them, coz it means taking away their play time and TV time. So if they want to work and play, I just let them as long as they do the chores πŸ˜…

Went to our favorite Sop Kaki Kambing at Pemda Cibinong but it was closed. I think they’re closing down. So we went to the other Sop Kaki Kambing at Pasar Basah Sentul. Then we went to visit Mami.

Reached home about 11. Get the kids to bed and I’m doing computer works. It is now 2 in the morning, gotta get my sleep.

Bye for now. See you next week 😘
