I already passed the stage wherein I feel awkward answering people’s questions on what I do when I say that I am a work at home mom. Their skeptic look and raised eyebrows no longer affect me in any ways. Because these people if I may say, are mostly those who only know how to use the Internet when updating their Social Media Accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram particularly. I don’t intend to be judgemental here but I noticed that when I explain my work, let’s say as an online freelance writer or a Social Media Manager to people who are Internet savvy, they understand it easily.
I know I haven’t been around much lately and I made it even worst (for me and my readers) by posting a sponsored one. To tell you the truth, I have lots of things on my mind to share with you all but I had made a choice to just keep it off from the blog for a while. Well, it is not that I am completely shutting myself off from the worldwide web because if you have been following me on Instagram, you will see that I am still sharing bits and pieces of my family and I through photos.
I thought when I ended a contract with one of my clients I could spare some time to sit down and create new posts to share with you all. Unfortunately, when I lay in bed at night together with my kids, which was supposed to be my “working/blogging time”, I couldn’t help but savor the comfort of our bed, the cool breeze of the a/c, the chorus “good night, sweet dreams, love you” of our three kids and hubby together with their kisses. End result– together, we all sail to Neverland!
My days were also occupied on reviewing my two kids for two weeks in a row, doing household chores, and few hours on my online works. Oh, and I was also able to put up some Christmas decorations already because my youngest daughter had been nagging me on when will Santa Claus come, how about you? Any Christmas decorations yet?
And I haven’t posted, visited, or even checked my blog’s statistics. Why?
I believed it’s part of being a Work-at-Home Mom– never complain for tasks that could make you busy because it means moolah! There were times when I felt like a zombie because I worked during the night until wee hours. I do not work during day time because I have a husband to assist with before he goes to work, two grade schoolers who attend class in the afternoon, and a 4 year old whom I try to homeschool (play and learn stuff).

In one of my conversation with my mom, she told me that our neighbors were a bit puzzled as to why I have been ordering makeup from my cousin’s wife who is an Avon Lady when I am just working from home. They knew because I have my name on several pages of the Avon brochures which mean those were my orders. My mom blatantly answered “Why not? It’s not because you are just at home you cannot wear makeup!”. Naturally, I hushed her. I was actually smiling right after that conversation. The following day, my mom told me that two of our nosy neighbors ordered the same items like mine! And then she just saw the other one went out to fetch her kid with a very red lipstick! LOL!
