It’s been a month since our househelp went back home to her province, and left us with no househelp since. Having none has taken a toll on my patience and energy. I had to learn to deal with all the housework and managing my irritability when tired and stressed.
One benefit to our current situation though is that my eldest daughter would volunteer to cook her meals (she would do this also before but I see this more often now). Earlier, it actually felt good to help her out cook her pasta. She would also initiate at times (though not always) washing her own dishes (and extending to a few others).
My youngest daughter, on the other hand, have learned to offer help around especially when she sees I am tired.
Things are not so bad. 😊
Tiring but not bad. 😊
