For mothers, WAHM or working full-time, life is neither a bed of roses nor a walk in the park. There are many things to do that there seem to be not enough time to do everything. There are so many things to remember that at times your brain just gets tired remembering things. There are so many things to get done but you can’t seem to figure out where to start. There are so many places you want to go, but you just can’t.
Oh well, these may seem like complaints. But, despite and in spite of these, mothers are among those who are grateful and happy even at petty things. At least that’s what I think.
Anyway, hear this. Mondays are definitely my least favorite. Coming from a relaxing weekend, there is this feeling that you want to extend it a little bit more. Who would want to get up early in a Monday morning, right? But you just have to, like everybody else. So, I would literally drag myself out of bed, shower, and get dressed. Then follow strings of errands like waking the kids up, helping them shower, putting their school uniforms on, reminding them to brush their teeth, to put on their socks, eat breakfast, drive them to school etc., and oh I forgot, I have to wake up my husband too. All of these have to be done within two hours. Just when finally you have driven them to school and you are very well on your way to work, you suddenly remember that you forgot your toddler’s milk. Grrrr, but yeah, what choice do I have but to buy that milk as fast as I could. You can sense the desperation, right. The last thing I need at this point is another inconvenience, like showing your driver’s license before getting inside the store. But then again I have no choice but to comply. It has become a part of Thai culture to show valid ID’s upon entering any establishments large enough to have their own parking space. At least one thing I am thankful about though, which could have me blow my top had it been otherwise, was that my wallet makes access to my driver’s license and other electronic cards quick and easy.
Aah well, a simple, petty thing like having a good, convenient wallet could amazingly save ones sanity.
Life’s simple pleasures.. indeed.
