Saw this from mom loves being at home and decided participate. It’s an interesting topic…

  1. In your home, who does the laundry?   me
  2. Do you sort your laundry?  Yes I do.
  3. If you sort, how many different color/fabric type groups do you sort it into? I sort them by colors: dark (red & orange, black, gray & navy blues), light (pastels), white and khakis; towels goes in one pile, underwear and socks on their own. If I go crazy, I sort them by tops & bottoms, kids vs. parents stuff, oh yeah, plus baby’s stuff on its own.
  4. Do you hand wash anything?  no, only when needed.
  5. Are there any articles of clothing that you send out to be cleaned professionally?  nope.
  6. If you have any clothes cleaned professionally, is that drycleaning?  Or regular laundering/pressing?  n/a
  7. At home, what detergent do you use?  Any detergent additives that you regularly use? tide and dreft.
  8. What whiteners/brighteners do you use?  none. 
  9. Do you use any fabric softeners?  No. But my mom recommends it.t.
  10. How do you handle stains?  I scream at stains! =) hot water does the trick for me.
  11. Do you use different water temperatures for your different loads?  I use hot water for socks, underwears and whites — cold for the rest.
  12. Do you use a tumble dryer, or do you hang your clothes to dry? Dryer for the regular stuff and for shrink-prone items are hanged.
  13. In your home, who folds the clothes?  me, me and only me. the kids try to help sometimes.
  14. Where do you fold your clothes?  (i.e., in the laundry room, at the kitchen table, etc.)  The moment I take them out of the dryer, I lay them flat inside a laundry bin in a pile and sometimes I fold them right away or wait until all clothes are washed and dried and bring them to our room (if it is too heavy, I have to wait for dear hubby to carry them up) – I love to fold. I especially enjoy folding when I am watching. As I fold, I sort them by owner and by tops/bottoms, color coded vs. white, tank tops vs. long/short sleeves, etc…(grabe pagka oc ko no!)
  15. Who puts the folded clothes away?  I always end up doing it…unfortunately one task that I dread.
  16. Do you have a certain day of the week you consider “laundry day”?  It’s messed up. I tried but failed. But I’m trying again, so far I’m set to do it every Tuesday.
  17. About how many laundry loads do you do per week?  wooh, with the rate I am going, it is about 5-10 loads. Hopefully, once I establish my Tuesday routine, I am hoping it’ll be less.
  18. Do you iron? Another task I dread. Nope, nope, nope. Dear hubby is good at this.

So far that’s it. If you’re going to repost, let me know. Sure would love to know how you do your laundry…hehehe! Baka may makuha akong tip.

I’m sad. Sad because I only have a couple of ‘days’ left before returning back to work. Not that I don’t enjoy my work, I do – but I don’t think I’m ready to leave my little one(s) just yet. I still feel my maternity leave is short, esp. since I have just started to recover and now, the thought of going back to work asap makes me cry. I know I’ll be leaving my baby in good hands (with my mom!) but I would really like to be here for him, for them. But to be a stay-at-home mom at this moment is unthinkable, at least financially speaking. Emotionally? hmmm, I’d like to be at home with them. I would like to take them to school and to their activities. I would like to spend more time with them. Physically? I’ll be drained. Would I complain? Probably. At the state that I am in…I’ll probably complain and at the same time enjoy. I don’t know how my mom did it. She took care of 4 kids, the house, and worked on the side. I bet she had complains but I never really heard about them, either that or my memory is slowing me down.

Anyway, I’m sad that I have to go back to work soon. I know I would manage as I did with my other 2 but I don’t think I’ll ever be ready. However, I am thankful because I know that I can leave him with someone who will truly love and take care of him.

I know God has good plans for us and I know one day, I’ll be spending more time with my kids than work.

imaginiff… August 12, 2007

Yesterday, we celebrated Ate G’s birthday. We got there quite late. B needed to do work at the other house that by the time he got home and got ready, it was almost 6 p.m. + Ate Cha and Des dropped by to pick up the poker set (achieved) ended up playing Guitar Hero for a good hour or two. I heard Des and Kat got pretty good at it. Handa na silang kalabanin si ‘Nong Glen.

At G’s bday bash, we had sushi, chicken wings (c/o of Buffalo Philly’s), seafood pesto pasta, sesame brittle and chocolate cake. Ang sarap! Tapos may capri sun pa!!! I miss moments like these when we just hang out and laugh the night away. It is much harder to gather the ‘homies’ now since we all have our own agenda. Ate Cha and Ate Lhey being 4 hours away, Meme- another 4 (or 2?) hours away din, Myra busy with her studies and work, the Booglets, busy din kami…the Chavezes, busy din and ‘Nong Glen – busy sa luvlife nya! Hindi tulad ng dati na isang tawag lang, oks lahat. Kaya pag andito ang mga ‘dayuhan’ – hangout agad kami. The kids esp. enjoy their company…syempre, kami naman, enjoy din!

Ice breaker namin is yung tipong ‘game ka na ba’ 3rd challenge. Naming as much sa isang category. We started with how many movies we can name that starred Robin Williams, and then Mel Gibson, tapos songs by Madonna and Mariah Carey…ikaw, how many can you name? I folded after naming 1 song lang ni Mariah Carey. Myra won that round, maka-Mariah kasi. Ate Cha introduced a new game sa tradition. We played IMAGINiff. The object of the game is simple — just imagine what the other players are most like. Maraming tanong at maraming beses ka rin kakabagan sa kakatawa!

When my name was picked, the question was: IMAGINiff Sharon was a road sign, what would she be: 1) STOP; 2) Neighborhood Watch; 3) 75 MPH; 4) Scenic Overlook; 5) Dangerous Curves Ahead; or 6) Bridge Out

What would you pick? The most popular vote was #4 (naka naman!) kasi daw artistic ako…or something like that. I actually chose that one. It would be good to be #5 though! hahaha! Guess what B selected? #2 – Neighborhood Watch daw ako. Ano ako? parang laging nag mamasid? Sometimes I feel he doesn’t know me at all. =P Biro lang. You should try to play the game, it’s really fun.

The kids naman had fun too. They also had their own agenda…except Kian (aka joachim) who was asleep for almost the whole time, except when it was time to feed and change him. Sarap maging baby ulit!
