feels like Black Friday!

June 30th, 2010

I’ve been bad, very, very, bad :P .
I just got my first paycheck and did what a girl’s gotta do. Any clue? Yes, I’ve gone mad shopping, very MAD that looks like with the amount of loots I got, it feels like Black Friday for me.

So what did I get?

  • 2 LC purses.
  • 1 Benetint, 1 Smashbox concealer.
  • a facial wash and moisturizer I have been saving up for.
  • 2 sunnies.
  • 2 dresses.
  • skinny jeans.
  • and 2 pairs of sandals.

When my husband passed away 5 years ago, I did not know how to deal with my new life. Every part of my life had changed. I was now an old lady living all by herself. My children took turns staying with me for a few weeks, to make sure I was going to make it through the grief, but eventually that stopped and I had to start spending most days and nights home alone. After about two months of eating dinners and doing all the housework without a single person to share it with, I decided to get a companion. I adopted a little mixed breed puppyfrom the local animal shelter and started carrying on conversations with the dog, who I named Cinnamon, after my late husband’s favorite flavoring and scent. Cinnamon kept me entertained during the day, but at night I continued to feel all alone. Eventually I started to feel scared at night. I would lay awake and every little pop and crack from the house settling in for the night, made me wonder if someone was trying to break in. I called my oldest son one night and asked him to drive 15 miles from his home, to mine, to make sure no one was in or around the house so that I could get up and go to the restroom. The next day my son had an alarm system installed from, and I’ve not missed a night’s sleep since the installation.

9 to go.

June 24th, 2010

Because of my liquid fasting and yes the stress and anticipation for my big interview on Monday, I am just 9 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. Yipee! To add to that, I don’t crave as much anymore. I have developed a control on food cravings. I cannot even finish 1/2 cup of rice and if I do, my stomach feels very upset. Now my only problem is my flabby tummy, blame it to my pregnancy :P . Do I succumb and turn desperately on these stomach weight loss products? I don’t think so. As soon as my routine goes back to normal, I vow to exercise and commit myself to the 30-Day Shred workout. And I hope this time, I reach level 2 lol! :P .

missing dad.

June 24th, 2010

I miss my dad so badly.
If ever God will grace Us with this ultimate gift, I will make sure to come home next year and visit my folks. You see, my dad ain’t a techy and he doesn’t even have an email. When my mom is on the Magic Jack, he’s always out and I have no chance to conversing with him. I really wish I get to talk to him on a daily basis, talk and not text and find out what is going on with the e-cigarettes I have suggested as his alternative to the real one. You see, he has been trying to quit smoking for many years and I hope he does good this time around.

Just Doh it!

“Take it easy, but take it.”
Woody Guthrie

Ever since I got the call for an in-person interview for this 2nd dream job of mine, I have been very stressed. I may not look like I would be needing any emergency assistance because I still carry my stress with grace :P , but I have been losing weight already hee hee. Now that’s a good thing.

It’s just so surreal, everything seems to be falling in its right places and that God is truly listening to my prayers :D .

Then it dawned on me while sipping my coffee that yes, HE has been showing me plenty of miracles for the past 2.5 years already. I just don’t see it clearly but looking at where we are now, everything is a miracle.

I will give my best shot on Monday and I will leave it up to HIM afterwards.

I must put this in mind. No more splurging on other bags and keep these LV targets in mind. I know I sound pathetic here but for the baghags who have limited budget can very much relate with me hee hee. Soon, babies, you will come to Momma, soon :)
