cleaning at home, home chores, mum's thoughts

Is it just me or was it particularly hot today that I hardly want to move a muscle? It goes without saying that summer is indeed just around the corner. The scorching sun reminds me of that lesson in History all those many years ago in high school when our National Hero Jose Rizal was rationalizing why Filipinos tend to be on the lazy and procrastinating side and pointed a finger at the hot, humid tropical climate as the main culprit. Oh well, I cannot agree more. I have such a tiny living space now yet I really find it way too difficult to get up on my toes to clean up the clutter and wash what needs to be washed in the kitchen in this weather. If I as much as lift a finger, I’d be sweltering and sweating all over and it is just too uncomfortable! How am I to kiss and hug the little man when I am all this sweaty? :(

I know I can only be lazy for a while, after all, the chores won’t finish on their own no matter how much I wished for them to. What I wouldn’t give for a magic wand that will allow me to do all the work that needs to be done with a single waive! If I had a carpet, I will probably waste no time dialing up a carpet cleaning service to get the job done for me. Where do you think can I dial to have my bathroom and kitchen sink cleaned or have my tile floors swept and mopped?

Oh well, I hope this summer blues go away soon. Maybe thinking less of the weather and more of our ship cruise and zoo visit later this month will do the trick! ;)

How are you thriving in this weather?
