Entries for March, 2009

gusto ko pagbigyan ang tag ni mommy jong smiley-laughing.gif

although honestly, i don't bring my kikay kit all the time. so i will instead write the contents of my bag. hehehe

1) wallet and coinpurse - isang item lang kse pareho lang ang laman nya - pera. although my big wallet also have plastic money. and most important of all - our family pic.

2) hot pink springmaid comb - sobrang tibay ng suklay na ito. yung una kong suklay dati eh binili ko lang sa may boni ng 20 bucks. matibay sya in fairness kaya nung nawala naghanap ako ng same brand. kahit mumurahin gusto ko quality nya. isa pa hindi ako "brush" person. kse bulky sa bag at feeling ko di nasusuklay ng maayos hair ko.

3) wipes - i will let you into a secret on this. pag nalalamigan ako or naeexcite, i need to go desperately into a toilet. so kelangan lagi ako may wipes just for "emergency cases" (which sometimes happens most of the time..hahaha)

4) pamaypay - mainitin akong tao. i have to have my fan all the time with me kasi ayoko nanlalagkit ako pag mainit.

5) tenderly  hand gel - regalo lang sa akin nung pasko. mabango. ginagamit ko yan after ko humawak ng pagkain.

6) ventolin spray - pag may narinig na akong pusa sa dibdib ko kelangan ko na gamitin ito.

7) smints - pag matagal akong di nagsasalita sa byahe i pop one in my mouth bago bumababa ng sasakyan para walang chemical warfare pag nakipagusap ako. hahaha

8) hanky - pampunas ng pawis

9) clean and clear oil control film - pangtanggal ng oil sa face

10) maybelline shine free face powder (honey) - kapag sinipag ako magpowder at pag nagmukhang pagpriprituhan na ng itlog ang face ko.

12) fruity shine lip gelly - pag sinipag ako maglagay ng lipgloss at dry na ang lips ko

13) house and office keys - pangbukas sa bahay at kwarto namin. pati na din ng mga drawers ko sa ofc.

14) Victronix swisscard - may gunting, needle, flashlight, ballpen, ruler, small knife, small tweezers, magnifying lens, screw drivers. (kelangan lagi ko to dala)

15) cellphone - need i say more?

16) nail cutter - my nails are very soft madali sya maputol so i gotta have this all the time

17) sto. nino and rosary - bigay sa akin ng bestie ko sa ofc (rhoda)

18) ipod/ usb thumb drive - ang mga paborito kong gadgets that i can't live without

19) my medicine organizer - which holds my meds subdivided into 3 meals for two days

so diba, di naman masyado madami. hindi kse ako mahilig talaga maglagay ng kung ano ano sa face ko. nakakatamad! =)

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometim! es they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.!

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

It is just fortunate that I was trained by my Mom to learn domestic chores at an early age. She always told us not to rely on househelp as they will come and go and we can't do anything about it. True enough, in my most recent experience with the  househelp I am lucky that I know my way around the chores I rely on them for. I used to be so stressed when I need to work at home after a long day at the office. At home, all I wanted was to relax and spend quality time with the kids.

Until I learned how to cook. Yup, cooking was my waterloo so to speak. I knew how to cook but I hated doing it. I didn't have the passion to be creative with the meals I used to prepare when I was younger. My hubby was a better cook than I was so I actually didn't feel I should have anything to do with it. And then he had to work abroad. And I had to hear my kids complain that the meals are done repeatedly. So I started meddling with the cookbooks I collected (and never used) since I started to work. Hubby used to tease me what are the cookbooks for when I don't even cook. I told him it was for him. Hehehe.

So I let go of my househelp just last week. It wasn't a pleasant experience. A teleserye-like incident and I wouldn't go into the details. Here I am, with hubby far away and my two kids with me. What's a Mom to do but adjust to the situation. I never enjoyed it as much as I did before. Now I loved working around the house. I involve my kids with the chores and I feel that its better this way. They get to be more responsible. I cook with all the passion and love for my kids and I am loving every minute of it.

We just finished doing the laundry for the week. I am tired but I feel more accomplished as a wife and as a mother. If I had a choice, I'd rather not have househelp around. But the thing is, my youngest daughter will be coming home for good this June and study with her adings. So I guess I still need to hire one soon. But only until she grows up a little bit. And when that time comes, goodbye yaya....hello domestic diva.

if there's something that i detest doing at home it's doing the repairs that usually the man of the house does. leaking faucets, dripping bidette, putting together broken things, etc. but since i don't have a choice i have to learn the ropes somehow. just this weekend i was able to repair the bidette. you just don't know how elated i was because this is connected to the water going to the toilet tank. and we had to bear a few weeks using the timba to flush the toilet.

i used to find it boring going around hardware stores. until recently, when i had to fix up some things at home that i am able to appreciate their presence. i can't say i am good at maintaining things at home. but it sure helps to have a husband who is very patient in explaining to me online how to do things. hehehe. i guess it takes a lot of experience and a spark of  interest in these activities to be able to efficiently and effectively repair things.

i am just crossing my fingers that no major destructions will happen while hubby is away. otherwise, i have to call a real carpenter/ tubero next time. sigh.

it's general cleaning day for me. well, among others. i have to finish the weeks laundry first. i haven't had time to go through things for the past years since hubby went away for work. i wasn't in the mood to rummage through dust and what nots. i hated throwing away things. trash is a problem as i don't get to hear the garbage truck come by because i'm at work when they do. so now was the chance to clean up and throw away things that are not usable anymore.

i was able to fill up four large garbage bags with trash. and i stopped myself from throwing away more as i'm not sure how to get rid of them later. luckily when my son and i went out to throw them in batches someone offered help and we were able to dispose the whole lot in a jiffy. neat!

i got to sort through a lot of bags and threw away some. i had grad pics from highschool friends still with me, letters from hubby and palanca (retreat) letters given when i was in highschool. its just nice to read them from time to time. my kids especially had fun reading the love letters i got from hubby. who was my bf since i was 15. they were amazed at the lingo we used then. and were giggling while reading the "kilig" lines. my son said he'd copy some of the phrases hubby used. sabi ko no copying. hehehe

its nice to reminisce on the past from time to time. especially the good times. i couldn't bring myself to throw any of the letters. (esp the palanca ones) every word said, every emotion felt were always worth the trip to the past. strange how emails get lost (deleted) in the heat of the moment. only to regret later on because there's no getting back to how it was. through the years memories fade. but the striking ones, the ones that had an impact on your life are the memories worth keeping.

it was a tiresome day. but then again, i still had fun.

its school break and my kids are spending a few days at my in-laws. so what is for me to do on a weekend without my kids around? well the usual. since i am still without househelp till now, did the laundry and organized the cabinets of my kids. wow it took me half a day just to clean up their stuff. kids! good thing hubby was on holiday last saturday. we were able to chat for awhile which we didn't have time to do the past few weeks.

it is just so difficult without family or anyone around. indeed no man is an island. without the household chores or the bonding time with hubby i would've gone crazy. sigh.
