One More Chance

Vacation is over, that I have to constantly remind myself. As much as I would like to stay in bed and cradle my kiddos, I got up, reported to work and blog during office hours do what a responsible employee have to do. Unfortunately, the 4 days-off was still not enough for me to scratch the only thing in my bucket list, to organize my closet, that is. Peeping through my closet always gives me mixed emotions; frustrated because I feel like an irresponsible lady yet fulfilled because I know that I’ve been a responsible mother. Tidying up a closet requires a lot of time, especially the likes of mine whom jungle will be embarrassed, it will surely eat-up some time which is supposedly for my kids. 

Ironically, my kids’ closet is the exact opposite of mine. Theirs are so neat, tidy and well organized. Of course I’m an OC Nanay, what do you expect. I always see to it that I personally put their folded cloths in and only I get their OOTD. Would you believe that I maintain a uniform folding style on each item? That means I re-fold what the nannies had folded if it does not concur with my prescribed pattern. I also observed the FIFO method (First In, First Out, I’m an ex-accountant, remember?lol). 

So what’s the point of this article, I’m really not sure. Maybe praying for another long weekend, we all deserve a second chance after all.

  1. Yes, the 4 days vacation is not yet enough. Right now, I still have hangover even it was already mid-week.

  2. Same here sis, the 4-day vacation is that enough. Hindi ko nasimulan ang next project ko. Although I am so happy to spend it with the whole family. Anyway, pareho din tayo when it comes to my son's clothes. I re-fold kasi I iron them kahit pang bahay lang. Nakasanayan ko na kasi since he is a baby. Tapos inaayos ko sya kung ano un bago laba o plantsa I put sa ilalim para FIFO at di nauulit sa isang linggo un damit nya. Hehe

    1. Apir! Mga OC mommies.hehe And yes, consolation lang ng 4-day break was spending quality time with the family, which I believe is more important than anything else.

  3. Yeah, looking inside my closet makes me frustrated since it's so disorganized and when going out, I seem to have nothing to wear although my clothes are many. Siguro I have clothes that I don't really like wearing, but I cannot bear to give away since they are gifts. *sigh*
