We really need to change the way we have planned our lifestyle.

Every weekend is “work weekend”. I complete as much work as possible (Including cutting vegetables for the whole week’s cooking) during the weekends so that when hubby leaves to office on week days, I’m not overloaded. But this plan leaves us no time for ourselves during the weekends. We are both overloaded, either taking care of baby or doing some work.

Today was no different. When we woke up, we thought we’ll finish all the work and go out after lunch. At lunch, we thought we’ll finish all the work and go out in the evening. We did go out, for a walk by dinner time. And had dinner when we should be in bed.

Even when we go out, we are in a hurry. Now a days, I find myself sitting at a coffee shop and thinking ‘Oh. we should really get the coffee in take-away pack so we don’t have to waste time sitting in this coffee shop and talking non-sense’. Yes, I’m the same person who used to beg hubby not to hurry so we could sit in the coffee shop for some more time and talking…. hmm… non-sense.

So we finally brought the baby and all-other-things-that-come-with-the-baby outside the door. Two young men were passing by, at leisure, one of them whistling. And I heard myself murmuring “Whistling? Hmm. I wish you would have a baby soon, and that would be the end of your whistling!”

We really need to change the way we have planned our lifestyle.
