I’m addicted to anything maong and chambray nowadays. Obvious ba sa sunod sunod ko na outfits. Lelz.
I think it’s not just me. Pasok kayo ng Zara and Old Navy stores, ang daming chambray clothes.
Anyway, I wanna talk about kasambahays. As if hindi pa toxic enough ang buhay ng isang working mother, we also need to deal with the dramas and the booboos of the kasambahays. Nandyan na yung halos ikaw na ang nakikisama, wag ka lang iwan. Nandiyan din yung pati family problems nila, ineemote mo. And ofcourse, nandiyan din yung halos putukan ka na ng ugat kakapasensya sa mga pagkakamali nila.
I just don’t like to jinx it but I am thankful for my two kasambahays. Malinis sila sa katawan. Masipag. May malasakit. However, there are also times na they can sometimes test my patience. One of them is madamdamin. Makikisama ka sa mood swings. The other naman, you have to be very specific and detailed with your utos. Hindi niya kasi yun masyadong magegets. These may be petty but during the times na wala ka sa mood or super stressed, e-effort ka din.
Just like what happened the other day. It was around 11:30am. Alvin called me to tell me that Anika and the two kasambahays were locked out of our house.
Tanghaling tapat, nakatambay sa labas ng bahay ang anak ko for more than an hour already.
Nawala daw kasi nila yung set of house keys when they went out.
Ang sakit sa bangs.
I had to find people to go to our house and open the doors. Thank you nga pala Ron and Ian. They were able to open it, three hours after. Imagine how hot it was sa labas. Gutom na gutom na si Anika.
When I got home, nagkwento ang Anika. She was waiting outside for the longest time. Super init daw. Then she got really hungry. Naawa yung isang lola na kapitbahay namin so she gave her skyflakes. Gutom na gutom pa din so the lola gave her bread and sausage. Nakakaloka talaga.
The next day, I was looking for the fruits that I brought two days ago. Ayun mga ateng, hindi nababa sa car ko. I used a different car the day after so hindi ko din napansin. Sa awa ng Diyos, amoy bulok na fruits yung car ko when I checked. Nabulok ang ibang fruits. Sayang. I couldn’t understand because I told them to get it when I arrived from work. It was also automatic for them to get everything inside my car when I arrive. Ginawa kong ganun para automatic and systematic. Pero alas, this still happened.
Ang init ng ulo ko after. However, I had to control myself. Mas mahirap din kasi ang walang maid di ba? Yan na lang ang iniisip ko.
