How do you keep yourself busy during Summer? When the kids are out on camping trips for days or weeks, and the husband goes out of town for a company summer getaway, what is left to do when one is alone at home? Being a mom, this is the time when I exhaust all possible “mommy duties”. Aside from finally being able to finish the loads of laundry that have always haunted me (you know that feeling of a never ending pile of dirty clothes day after day), I can also do an annual washing of all our kitchenware, tableware and cookware. This means even those antique ones stored in our china cabinet will also be washed and polished.
Once all the clothes and cutleries are done, it’s time for a general cleaning of the whole house. I can finally clean every nook and cranny in our house where I’m sure there are bits and pieces of toys, or worse, biscuit crumbs from the kids. Having them all gone is the only way I can turn the house upside down to finally do the cleaning I’ve always wanted to.
When all those are done, it’s time to reward myself with some recreation. I guess I could play fast poker with some of my cyber friends. I have still a lot to learn when it comes to playing the game but I’m sure that learning how to play poker online will definitely be lots of fun since I’m playing it with friends who are newbies like me too.
