It's only 2 more weeks to go before I go back to work from my maternity leave. I actually have only started to enjoy the time recently after I got back into "normal" condition and then I realize there is only a short period left for me to do all the stuff that I want to do while on "vacation".
So far, I've only managed to fix up my closet and some paper documents. I took advantage of the sale in Shopwise to buy those plastic crates which I filled up with importants documents.
I literally threw out a huge box containing old papers (old credit card bills, old work-related papers, old payslips, etc. etc.). I organized my docs in clear folders and piled them in these plastic bins for easy access.
I also put into bigger crates my old clothes, maternity clothes and even some clothes in good condition but I choose to not wear anymore for some reason or another. Because of this, my clothes collection was cut into half. With this, my closet has become a more organized space to look at, whereas it was literally a jungle during my entire pregnancy period.
I also checked out and dispatched of old shoes. During the process, I realized that a girl can never have enough pair of shoes! Although I've gotten rid of more than 7 pairs of old shoes, I feel that I needed to replenish all of it to have a "secured" shoe collection fit for my job and my role as a mom, wife and friend. Thus, one time, when I went out with my balikbayan aunt, I got myself a new pair of driving shoes (in flesh) and a pair of black slippers that are okay for strolling around the mall. Heaven! Hahaha! Seriously!
Next up for cleaning is our attic space. Apart from it having inches of dust, there are loads and loads of bags, stuff toys and other knick knacks (which includes an aerobic stepper, computer stuff, blankets, curtains, toys, and many more) which need to be sorted out and decided whether to keep or give away. And knowing myself, to sort it all out would take me forever to do. Hahaha!
Did I say that this week is also exam week for the big sister? I am drowing in Science and Language worksheets now. And then at the end of the week is the big recital for Zoe. She will play Swans on the Lake and Dutch Dance. We need to seriously practice!
So good luck to me on my last 2 weeks of maternity leave. Hope I get to finish all my personal stuff before I concentrate again on my corporate responsibilities (and that one deserves a separate post!).
