exhausted

i'm exhausted.

my day started early today. hubby was kind enough to put the laundry through the wash at the half-time of his early morning Man U match. he did this, so that when i woke up at 5.30am in the morning, i can hang up the laundry.

work was especially tiring this week, so i skipped off for an early celebratory birthday dinner with the girlfriend.

got home about 9.30pm with the hubby. he was exhausted and sleepy as he stayed up all night to watch the game and couldn't sleep in as he had to send me to work. he had a shower, while i put the air-dried laundry in the dryer, for a short tumble, so that they're toasty warm and smelling lovely.

while he showered and the laundry tumbled, i caught up with the local ST news. when he got out of the shower, i jumped in to clean the toilet. It's mid-week laundry and toilet cleaning day.

when i was satisfied with the toilet, i showered. then collected the laundry now tumbled dry, folded the laundry and put them away. I hung up work type clothes that i'll keep for pressing on Saturday, while my hubby is quickly snoring away.

it's almost midnight.

This is a weekly routine. I do laundry 2x a week. I clean the toilet 2x a week. I vaccuum the house 1x a week. Dust and clean the room 2x a week. and i work- pretty hard too if i may add.

It's exhausting, especially when work is busy. I only make it a point to blog these days, despite the exhaustion, cos it's an outlet to just let go of all the thoughts bottled in my head. it helps with the stress.

why don't we get help for the house? well, financial constraints would be one factor. i also never liked the idea of having a maid in the house. and i also think it keeps me grounded. i hope i can keep this up, cos i'm feeling quite drained as it is.

I must say that i'm really impressed. For so long, I have taken for granted that floors and toilets get cleaned and clothes get washed. I reckon, this "tradition" will still continue some more, but perhaps, i will be less grudging when asked to help.
