Lady of the House :l

Ive had this experience before when mama would be away for 3 days tops, mostly for her camping trips at Baguio and seminars in Tagaytay. Sushal I know! She'd let me handle the finances for the house, and I have to admit, that I'm a failure. Most especially when I see Jollibee's face smiling at me, right after I step out of the bank, with the crispy, still hot bills freshly withdrawn from the ATM :) Srsly, why does Jollibee have to be built right in front of the banks? Advertising strategy, I know! (I hardly notice Chowking cause it's on the same side eh) And oh, I also love to treat my sisters once in a while, using the family's budget for the week, hehehe.

But I must say, I have improved a lot. Mama is with Sara in Las Pinas since Tuesday and I am again tasked to handle the household. Well, not really the entire household because: Papa does the laundry and cooking, Lisa does most of the cleaning and Shyla... well, Shyla does the 'tantrum episodes', 'rakes' clean clothes out of her closet, leaves her shoes around with her dirty socks.... those things that the youngest people in the house does :) And I, make sure everything is DONE according to my delight :) Except the things that Shyla does - I make sure that she cleans up after her mess, stat!
