Feeling: Happy but TIRED!
So I have been doing this no-post thing a lot. But I can’t help it that all these holidays are absolutely tiring me out!
It’s totally exhausting taking care of a kid who needs you to hold his hands and carry him and
feed him and change him and everything on top of taking care of yourselves and your schedules over holidays like this!
After a successful 2 full days of visiting , amidst the big house move, I dare say, I think it’s safe to say that I REALLY deserve a bit of a break.
Just to give you an idea of just how hectic things were, let’s just say that the movers told us that we were not going to have space to unpack once all the boxes were loaded into the house and the bub’s room was filled TO THE BRIM with stuff that needed sorting.
I’m happy to report that we’ve got internet and connectivity up and there is a clear walkway into all the rooms, the crockery and the majority of the clothes are in the cupboards so that’s cleared up a fair bit of space too, so perhaps we’re at maybe 40% done?
We still have a long way to go with the house til it’s truly livable. Getting all the finishing touches up, placing all the things where we want them to go and creating a little big or space for us to call our own….
It’s just a matter of time, but A LOT of work!
And Chinese New Year….
We might look all fresh and pretty here, but besides it being a filter, we are actually entirely and totally knackered.
As you can see, the whole living room is littered with boxes and furniture covered in plastic. *SIGH*
But yes, we managed to maneuver ourselves through the maze of a house.
Day 1 we had 7 stops, evenly spread out between both sides of the family and mutual friends. Day 2 we had 2 lunches, one on each side and another dinner.
Let’s just say that I’m glad that this only comes once a year.
I don’t know what I might do if I had to have this much interaction with the family throughout the year.
Sure it’s wonderful to see the cousins and the aunts and uncles, but it’s also exhausting. Even more so when you have to worry about the logistics of a small child at the same time.
So as I take a short break off of this week, here’s wishing you all more prosperity and blessings in the monkey year.
As they’ve all been saying…
Lotsa Ang Pows to you,
