Stressed Out Mother’s Life

My life as a stressed out person… hopefully that feeling will go away soon

Tiring weekday, but a great weekend!

leave a comment »

It has been a tiring week for me. Had fever for about 5 days… thus didn’t take care of Pea. Once I’m well, Pie came home, thus had my hands full then.

Was on MC for 2 days, therefore by the time I went back to office, was quite busy as well.

Come Friday, it was my 4th wedding anniv. Didn’t bother about office (not that I didn’t go to work, but I left early lar), quickly go home, as we wanted to go out for dinner. Went out with PIL, so where got romantic… more over 2 kids in tow 🙂

Nevertheless, we went to Marche (@ The Curve)… everyone (except Pie and I) have not been there, and I’ve been pestering to go there for quite some time now. It was a different experience, whereby you are given a card and whatever you order will be stamped onto the card. It’s self-service dining, and food are different… pasta, pizza, steak, roast chicken, rosti (potato) and drinks. After dinner, we walked around the mall, as PIL have not been there before (I think). Pea was asleep most of them, after having her milk at the restaurant.

The next day, we were supposed to go to the clinic, as I wanted some oilment for my cold sore. On the way there, it was raining heavily, so asked hubby to detour back. As it was lunch time, and hubby wanted to go to his new office at Rawang, we opted for McD instead. Went to the Drive-Thru, and had McD in the car… enjoyed the trip to Rawang… it was far (around 45 mins drive, but with the new car, cannot feel the distance). By the time we went back home, we’ve sat in the car for about 3 hours (inclusive Pea… and she had her milk at hubby’s new office… haha)

Sunday, was a lazy day… but not before we went out for ‘Dim Sum’ at Quality Hotel, KL. After a heavy breakfast, we dropped PIL and Pea back home, and then headed to Sunway Pyramid, as I wanted to collect my Income Tax Pin # (what to do, it’s almost time for tax submission). Parking at Pyramid was a total havoc, with the old parking lot under renovation. Funny thing is that inside the parking lot, there’s a free buggy (I called it tram though) service to fetch and drop patrons to the mall entrance. They have this service as the parking lot is quite big, and quite a number of them are quite far from the mall entrance. Not too sure if they’ll still have this service when the entire mall is ready. Remember I mentioned lazy Sunday ? By the time we got back home, everyone was drop dead tired… I could have just fall onto bed to sleep, if Pie hadn’t dirtied her going-out clothes… *sigh* instead of sleeping, I was washing clothes, and later on folding clothes. Never mind, will get my beauty sleep earlier tonight…

Bad finish for the week

leave a comment »

*Cough Cough* Yeah, I’m still having cold. Worst than that, I’m having slight fever as well. Yesterday, I really couldn’t take it anymore, but then no choice had to continue working (quality assuring proposal is something I really hate). When I couldn’t tahan, I left the office around 6+ pm, and went home to sleep. Continued reviewing the proposal around 8+ pm… Luckily it took me around 1/2 hour only (didn’t put any heart to review it though).

Went to see the doctor just now. She said that my immune system is low, due to the fact that I’m still bf-ing my baby. But then she encouraged me to continue bf, so bf is the way to go (for now lar)…

Crossing my fingers that I’ll be better by tomorrow, as I need to take care of Pie in the coming week, as my Mum is going to Shanghai (I’m envious)…

Bad start for the week

leave a comment »

This week started off badly. On Monday, I was down with flu (actually started few days ago), and went to see the doctor; thus am on MC for the day. Was at home, sleeping most of the time (haha… FIL took care of Pea as MIL went out for lunch). Yesterday, office didn’t have any power for about an hour, thus did not do much work. But once power came back, found out that one customer was complaining about our people assigned (*sigh* … how tak syiok that is… to have customer complaining about us)…

So you can imagine how *good* the entire week will be …

Last minute trip to Genting

leave a comment »

It was kinda last minute. Well, not so last minute, but definitely not a planned trip. To me, a planned trip is something you would have planned in weeks or months, not something that was mentiond 3 days ago. It all started with hubby asking whether this weekend want to go Genting / Camerons. We actually don’t have any problems, as both places we do have apartments to stay in… don’t have the hassle to make rooms reservations. Since it was kinda ad-hoc for me, and that I’m slightly lazy to travel so far, and that not many people are going, I decided to go to Genting. With the new car now, hubby is super duper enthusiastic to travel around… must be trying to make full use of the car…

We went up to Genting on Friday night (wasn’t kidding, coz by the time we reached Gohtong Jaya (GJ), it was 10+ going 11 pm). We were all tired – once lugged in all the luggages and made the bed, we wanted to just jumped on to the bed and go to sleep. Hubby was lucky as he managed to fell asleep quite fast. I was already having nose block, but Pie had other thoughts. She slept all the way up to GJ, therefore couldn’t go to sleep anymore. Mum and I took turns to ask her to go to sleep, but she couldn’t, until I switched on the tv for Pie. She watched about 1 hour of cartoons, and I quickly switched off the tv. By the time we all fell onto our pillows, it would have been 1 am. I would love to sleep all the way till late in the morning, but having Pea around, I should count myself lucky that she only woke me up around 6.30 am (though I was still half asleep and have already put the pacifier into her mouth countless times). Therefore, the entire time I was like a zombie… didn’t have enough sleep, also never mind, I was having nose block and sore throat (am still having now).

Supposed to go up to Genting early in the morning, coz hubby wanted to bring Pie to the indoor theme park, but becoz I wasn’t feeling too well, we ended up going to Genting in the evening, for dinner and jalan-jalan a bit. Had dinner at Kopi Tiam (at First World) and it was the worst experience. It was super stuffy and the food was quite expensive. It’s supposed to be a food court, but then we can order dishes from one of the stalls, Chinese. We ordered deep fried sotong, hong kong kai lan, sweet and sour fish (entire fish) and cantonese fried noodles. With a pot of tea and rice, it costed us RM 120+. How expensive can that get, and it was not even at a restaurant. Have you ever spent so much at the food court ? After dinner (barely ate much), I felt like fainting. Mostly like was caused by the stuffy food court, coz after I sat down at one of the open areas, I felt much better. We stayed there until around 10+, then went back to GJ.

Today brought Pie to the club house. She had so much fun sitting on the kiddy rides, playing house and shooting basketballs (though Mum and I played the most, and Pie laughed most of the time). Was supposed to come back after lunch, but by the time we finished lunch and packed our stuffs, it was around 3pm. Both Pie and Pea was sleeping, so we decided to come back later.

Left Pie with my Mum, but Pie looked quite reluctant to follow her. Now with Pea around, Pie prefers to come home to me. Though still loving her sister, I can sense that she still have sibling jealousy, therefore seeking my attention very often. Do hope that I’m spending enough time with her. Will try to split my time between the 2 girls…
