Chores

We all have to do chores, unfortunately. I’m not sure when I realised it, but it’s a big realisation. Since then, I’ve been trying to maintain a positive mentality when it comes to chores. Doing dishes, laundry, we can’t avoid them, so instead of feeling miserable, let’s cheer up and get them done.

Spent the day doing some chores, playing with Nolan and Summer, and made a nice meal. That’s about it.

No rushing things

Missed Chronicle30 diary entry for the last two days, as the busy life overtaking me. I’ve been rushing things mostly during these two days. I don’t feel overly guilty or disappointed, but it’s a good sign to remind me that I need to take control and spend the time to pause, ponder, and record.

Another packed day

Another day packed with meetings. This is not a complaint, the meetings are good and positive. Shared knowledge with coworkers, caught up with some of them which I haven’t seen for a long time. Also tried articulating ideas better.

Broken violin bow

Cleared kitchen bench. It is stuffed with all kinds of things most of time, and getting more and more messy.

Socks in plastic bags

As a parent of young children, there are many many times in a day when I hope my kids could play by themselves for a little while, so I can get a few things done. It could be packing the bag for going out, cooking, or making an important phone call. I’m a strong single-tasking person, so this is especially true for me.

Determination

Every time I walk into the shower my first reaction is: oh, it is definitely due for a proper clean! I hope I can do it today. Eva is sharing the same thought with me. Good on her, she decided today is the day, she will have to get it cleaned before sleep. A lot of times, to get things done, all we need is this kind of determination.

Peaceful

Waking up, enjoying a few short moments of early morning by myself, before Nolan and Summer get up. Nolan still remembers his half completed nano block model from last night, and jumps straight into it.

Surprises

We often find little surprises in our daily life. Nolan’s school hat has been lost for weeks, I finally found it today, in a bag with soccer stuff. If it wasn’t because of my co-workers playing soccer today and I gave them my soccer ball, I still don’t know where the hat is.
