We have a gloomy weather last week. Well it’s not only gloomy but also rainy. A typhoon visited our country and cause some problems to some community. At times like this I am really thankful with the choice that we have made when we bought our house. Not only is it flood free, we are also a few minutes away from the grocery, banks and markets. But even if we are secure inside our house I still cannot feel at ease knowing that most of my friends and relatives are feeling the wrath of the storm. In fact, our house in Pampanga, is submerged with water as of the moment. Well, nothing new there. Ever since we suffered from the scorns of Mt. Pinatubo, yearly, during the rainy season we experience flood. I am just a little bit relieved that before the typhoon I was able to give some funds to my aunt.
After spending a rainy Father’s Day at Antel Grand Villas in Cavite, our group decided to visit the home of Emilio Aguinaldo. The kids gave up easily because it was a really cold weather. I was the only one in the group who did not swim because I am scared I might meet another accident in their slippery floor. I spent my time listening to music in the ipod shuffle and keeping score on how many have gone down the floor. hahaha. Anyway, the mansion of Emilio Aguinaldo was really impressive. According to the tourist guide, the house alone is 1000 square meters. I am impressed by the furniture. They were made from rattan and weren’t subject to any treatment over the years but they are still on good conditions. The kids were eager to see all the secret passages of the house. It was really a nice experience to visit it.
Last October, the little girl was asked to bring a pet to school as part of their pet jamming activity. Since we don’t a have pet at that time we bought her a fighting fish. She called it bluey since the fish is blue. After the activity, Bluey have found a permanent resident in its small fish bowl which is on our table. It serves as one of my favorite stress reliever. Unfortunately, last Saturday morning my brother found out that it is dead already. I was sad and so is the little girl. I planned to buy two gold fish as a replacement but the little girl wants a baby chick. hahaha.
I was happy because I was able to give the husband a unique father’s day because I wanted to give him something special despite the fact that he is far from us during that special day. This is in return to his sweet gesture of finding me a unique anniversary gift last month. If only distance and my health won’t be an issue we would have flown to his destination and have greet him in person. But something has to give as they say.
I am now in the process of looking into different schools where I will enroll the little girl.Next school year, she should be GRADE 1 but I know schools are strict when it comes to the age of the student. By next year, Anevay would only be 5 years and 11 months. But the husband said that there are some who would accept her as long as she is capable mentally. So, here I am searching for the right school. My requirement, it should have a small teacher, student ratio, and near our place. Though I can reconsider the later if it’s really a nice school. I have to look into the schools and inspect them when the husband comes home this July. IT’s the only time we have since we plan to be in Kuwait in November ( finger’s crossed).
If you see me now, you won’t be able to see the trace of what I have been through the past six months. Yesterday, when I went to the parents orientation, some mommy who know what I have been through have told me that I seem strong now. That they are amazed of my recovery. Well, I can say that I am getting there. There are no more akward movements and I guess my mobility is a bit faster now. And of course, I am proud to say that somehow without even trying I lose some pounds. But sometimes my knee muscles are still stiff. Sign that I am not fully recovered. There are times when fear would hit me bad that I would stop moving. I amm considering to buy knee braces for protection. I don’t know, sometimes I am too paranoid, expecting something worst will happen. But I promise myself to stop worrying and just let go and let God. That way my heart is calm and in peace.
On Wednesday, school will start already. And I have an excited toddler who always asked me everyday if it’s time for her to go to school. And whenever I said no, she would make face and be sad. Oh yeah, she’s looking forward to school time. Me too! Not only am I excited to the new learnings that she’ll have, I will now have time to chat again with fellow mother’s who are also waiting for their kids. Somehow, I made friends with some of them. In fact, we plan to go to the spa of a fellow mom when regular classes resumes. I am just glad to be back on my feet already. Everything is back to normal and hopefully I won’t meet anymore accident. I planned to enjoy the school year ahead
I don’t know what has gotten into me, if it’s one of the symptoms of low testosterone or just plain cravings but the past few days I have the urge to go to Rai Rai Ken and buy california maki. Oh not just one order but two or three. I am thinking to research on how to make it so that I’ll have it at home everytime I wanted to. Right now, I have stop my cravings by baking spaghetti And my sister promised to buy garlic bread. When this craving strikes I am asking if I am pregnant? haha. Just kidding.
Pardon me for the lack of creativity for my title. I am not just in my best blogging element for weeks now. Truth is, I have been contemplating on giving up blogging. I wanted something new.. But I don’t know what I want right now. At the moment, I am just focusing on different house chores. There’s a lot of cleaning and repairing to do before school starts and rainy season begins. Oh man, what to do?
