Downtime.

27 Jan

I am at home, on the bed with no internet connection (my laptop’s wifi card can’t seem to get signal inside our room).  I am unable to stand because of these monthly cramps but I am still thankful that I can type on a word document.  I need to do this to take my mind off the pain.

The husbo was nice enough to fetch me some warm compress so the pain was subdued for a bit.  I need to get some sleep though.  I find that rest helps because I just sleep through the pain hehe!

So I have to go now, the husband beckons we watch his favorite TV series.  If I get bored with it, I’ll continue reading that John Grisham novel I bought.

The Waiting.

26 Jan

My travel time going to work is about an hour and a half.  This involves riding a bus for a 30 minute travel and walking for about 1km (each way or to and from work) because there are no public utility vehicles passing by our office area.  I do this 5 days a week, to and from work.

I used to complain a lot about my travel time.  I complain about the undisciplined bus drivers who wait for traffic lights to turn red so they can have more passengers.  I rant about the horrendous traffic on EDSA. And I abhorred the long walks. And then I realized I was impatient because while traveling, I’ve got nothing better to do.

Have you been in this situation?  I think most of us have been in a similar spot.  We have, in our day to day journey, experienced waiting and getting impatient. Long lines in ATMs or banks.  Horrible traffic.  Waiting for someone or a package to arrive.  We get impatient.  And why is that?  Why do we feel frustrated? Continue reading

Peek-a-boo!

25 Jan

Hello all! I am peeking in to say “Hi!:  I  couldn’t get a chance to go online the past few days because of something important.  I have all my blog posts on a word document and I will post them as soon as I get the chance to go online again.

I pray for blessings of a thousandfold to you and your family! 🙂

Oh Monday! You’re here again!  The start of another work week!  Here’s another weekly round up

  1. Finalized some details on one of the tasks I am working on.
  2. Didn’t get to have some online time last week so all my posts were on MS Word.

  4. Stayed home most of Sunday and spent it with the Husbo.

I pray that this week will be a week filled with God’s favor for all of us!  🙂

Enjoying a Chilly Sunday

23 Jan

The husbo and I weren’t able to run today because of the drizzle.  We didn’t want to get sick so we just stayed in our room and slept LOL!  We did attend Sunday service at VCF Pioneer but generally, we stayed home and watched some reruns on the telly.

The weather lately has been cold to the point that the husbo and I turn off the fan inside our room!  People have been wondering why the weather changes abruptly. As much as I want to know, I’d rather enjoy the weather God gives and find ways to keep me warm – in this case, it’s the husbo’s hugs. 😉

Keeping Up in High Heels

22 Jan

I just got home from BGC and I am physically tired.  I got tired from all the walking and the commute.  But it was all worth it, “Keeping Up in High Heels” by LIFEbiz was awesome!

There were 3 guest speakers.  The first to speak was Donita RoseContinue reading

Quail Eggs and Siomai

21 Jan

I forgot to write about this funny and touching incident that happened when the husbo and I attended the service last Sunday.

During the sermon, Pastor Robert was telling the story about the Israelites and how, when they were wandering in the desert, God provided them Manna everyday.  And when they got so tired of manna, God provided so many quails.  And Pastor Robert was saying maybe the famous quail eggs that are sold here were discovered there.

After service, the husbo suddenly craved for those quail eggs, LOL! Talk about word of mouth advertising!  So we went and ate some of those quail eggs.  But since I was also craving for siomai, we went and ate some siomai too!

Amidst chewing and savoring the taste of siomai, the husband blurted: “Ang sweet naman ng date natin!” I laughed – not because it was so funny but because I was happy hearing him say that.  It felt good to know that the husbo wasn’t too pressured to take me out to fancy restaurants.  It’s nice eating at fancy restos sometimes, but I treasure the simplicity we usually take on when we go out on a date.

I know, to each his own, but I just wanted to let you all see that you don’t need to go out to a fancy date to enjoy each other.  A simple date will do.  What’s important is you are together, you are talking and you are having fun. 🙂
