I came, I saw, I blogged… The Second Coming

The 1 Month Challenge

When I am really lucky, my kids would be asleep by 8PM and I would have some me time. I realize that it has been a while since I last updated is blog and it is not because of lack if resources. I just really didn’t have the motivation to update.

So I’m giving myself a month: to update at least once a week and see where this will take me. Don’t expect lengthy novellas. I just hope that I get to update longer than what twitter would allow me.

2013: Here’s To The New Year!

So it’s the start of another new year.

Last time I updated this blog, I only had one kid and now I have two.  I only had a boy and now I have a girl too.  I used to live in an apartment, and now we’re in our teeny tiny condo.

Seriously, I don’t really know why I bothered to reopen this account.

Maybe its a way for me to get started on writing again, or it’s a way for me to do something to remove any traces of boredom.  Or maybe, I just want to get rid of the cobwebs in my brain and try to be more creative.

Last year, I wanted to start a group blog with a good friend of mine.  We already had a concept and all sorts of ideas as to what that blog was about.  We wanted to practice writing about things that do not concern our daily jobs.  Unfortunately, that did not pan out.  First, he had time to do reviews and all these stuff, and I could barely find my groove. 

This year, I wrote down my goals.  My goals did not include writing.

My son touched my cheek, kissed me on the lips and said “abyu”.

Oh happy day.

Si bulilit – update

My son and my hubby are now sporting similar haircuts. Masyado kasing mainit, so i decided na ipasemikal na rin si bulilit. Nung una medyo nashock ako sa itsura nya. Kasi sa totoo lang, cute sya pag medyo mahaba ang buhok nya. Kulot kasi. Pero ngayon na semikal na sya mararamdaman ko minsan ang onting takot pag ngumingiti sya ng pilyo.

Marunong na syang magsalita ng paunti unti. Kanina ginulat niya ang lahat nung bigla syang sumigaw ng baubau (bubbles) habang nanonood ng surf commercial. Pag tinanong mo sya ng where’s your bellybutton, itataas nya ang tshirt nya, ituturo ang pusod sabay sasabihin bat (button). Wag ka nga lang magkakamali na tanungin kung asan ang bellybutton mo at kahit nasan kayo ay itataas nya ang tshirt mo para ituro ang bellybutton mo.

Marunong na rin maglambing. Dati natatakot ako kasi parang feeling ko di sya marunon maglambing. Lalo na pag kinukwentuhan ako ng mga kaibigan ko. Ngayon pag dating ko, magbebless sya tapos yayakap na. At anong higpit ng yakap.

Ang sarap talaga magkaanak.

Going on a date in the afternoon

When my husband was still courting me he would often go to our house inthe afternoon, a little after lunch. My mom used to call it ligaw intsik. Because of his class schedule we could only go on dates in the afternoon.

When we started working, we startedgoing ona ritualistic dinner-movie-coffee date on saturday nights, mass-dinner on sundays. We looked forward to the weekends as this is the only time we were able to see each other during the week, except when his scheduleshifts and he’s suddenly looking ata weekday off.

When we were newly married, thursdays were our date nights. We would treat outselves to a dinner and movie and take advantage of the mall to while away time while waiting for color coding to clear.

Now, with a toddler, we’re lucky if we could get away with a once a month date. That is if we’re really lucky to have available grandparents to watch over him. And we could only do it on afternoons as that is the only time we could get away with minimal interference with our boss’ preference.

It has now gone full circle.

Update after sucha long time

I’m immensely enjoying my new phone. I get to plurk, update facebook, ym, check my email and read ebooks always anywhere now.

I also loaded some of the son’s videos so he gets the entertainment he needs when he is restless. And then now I get to blog using my phone.

So maybe now I can update more often. No excuses to slack.


Balancing Act

One of the things about being a working mom is that you get to stress about the little things less.

I will admit it.

When I was staying at home with my son, I would usually stress about the littlest stuff. Is he getting enough to eat? Are his hands clean enough? Is he getting enough sleep? Is he watching too much TV? And the list goes on.

But when I started working again, that started to wane. I just wanted to enjoy being with my son. Playing with him, putting him to sleep, feeding him. I guess because I always think that we have less time with each other, I started enjoying that time together. Unlike before when I always thought I had more time because I really wasn’t doing anything.

I will never be the best mom nor will I be the best employee there is. But I guess, I’m happy being this way. It just has it’s way of balancing itself.
