*Satus

The kids were both a bit stomach sick last week and I always get a hint of whatever they have (i have to blame myself for always kissing them anyhow).
This week, when my man left us started great ... not. Both children are so so, I had fever yesterday and just would like to have a Entourage marathon in bed instead of taking care of others. (Lady A is free Sundays and Mondays).
So when I had to take Alexis to pre-school yesterday with my pale face, head ache and tired eyes and then also go grocery shopping with both of them, I wore this perfect sweater with the loveliest of cashmere shawls out there. A perfect disguise for a naked face with no makeup and no motivation whatsoever.

But today I feel better! Thank you for that.

(sweater: here, cashmere shawl: here)

*obviously suppose to be Status, but that's how tired I am, can hardly write correctly.

    1. Hon, I have been working with migrant women working in domestic jobs for over 10 years and it is a very slippery slope. First switch days off, then work a few extra hours and next thing you know she is working 15 hour days 7 days/ week. It is sooooo common, everywhere that poorer women are imported to do domestic household tasks as when they are out of their home country, living with their employer and do not feel they can decline requests from the employer. Whether or not the employer is reasonable and kind (as I am sure Stina is), the disparity in the relative position of foreign maid/ nanny and the employer is huge. Stina is doing the right thing by treating her help's time off with respect. My comment was not "stupid" at all, but based on seeing so much abuse over the years that really often starts with just switching days off or adding an extra hour or two here and there. --michelle
