A Housewife’s Life

Isn’t it boring to become a housewife? Several years ago when I had just quit from my former job, I felt depressed. But now, after I realized how lucky I am to have a colorful life, three kids and a very good husband, I never felt bored.

I can arrange what I want to do, and what I have to do. I can make a schedule with various activities such as taking the children to their school and their course; and picking them up, blogging, assisting the children to learn their lessons, writing posts and stories, having cream bath and body treatment, shopping, having fun with my family, spending time together with my husband, going to gym, visiting my parent and my parent-in-law, and cooking (once in a blue moon. Ha..ha… cause I have maids who help me ).

If there are something beyond my schedule, such as seeing my old friends, or going to a party, I can change my schedule because it is flexible. Although I have daily routine activities, but everyday is different, everyday has its own color.

I spend a lot of time driving when I take my kids to the places where they have their activities. I always bring books to read, a pen to write anything that comes in my mind, and of course my phone-cell Nokia N-95 with camera to capture photos of sudden beautiful moments when I have to wait for the kids, so I don’t waste time idly.

So, isn’t it boring to become a housewife? I don’t even have time to feel bored!

hemm, mengantar anak-anak jalan2, membacakan buku, momotret keceriaan si kecil..
Kayaknya nggak ada yang lebih melegakan selain berbuat yang terbaik buat si kecil, ya mbak?
Tetap semangat...

yup... there's no time to be bored.
It's a 24/7 job, after all! ;)
