Last Holy Week I did something that I have never done before in my life and that was Water Only Fasting accompanied with prayer for 7 straight days! It wasn’t easy I am telling you. I nearly gave up but I didn’t. I finished it with flying colors and after that it dawned on me that I was eating unhealthily and it was one great way to detoxify my body from all the junk that I have put in. That’s why after that I have sworn not to touch red meat ever again and to prepare for healthy eating plans that would be good for a week. I would drop by the grocery to pick up the ingredients for my meals so I’d avoid choosing unhealthy food whenever I feel the hunger pangs. I have learned a lot through fasting. We should take care of our bodies as early as now because if we don’t the price that we have to pay for neglecting it will be quite high.
We decided to change our business name to more catchy and easier to remember by our clients. Change of company name means that we have to deal with business card printing again to give out to our regular customers and to the new ones. And we are not talking about just business cards but also the tarp, letter head, stickers and everything. After going through all the hassle and of course expenses, we realized that we should have stuck it out with our old business name so we wouldn’t have spent so much on the changes that we have made. Oh well too late for crying over spilled milk.
I had a scare a couple of years ago when my infection in the cervix was recurring and no matter what I take whether vaginal suppository or a strong kind of antibiotics it won’t go away. I prayed night and day that it would not be serious but when my OB said that we might need to start asking the different hospitals about the colposcope price that’s when my worry really begun to gnaw at me. I know that people who undergo colposcopy examination is suspected to have cancer. Good thing that that the last brand of antibiotic that I took, cleared all the infection out. Thank God that we did not have to push through with the colposcopy because aside from it is expensive, I shudder at the thought that I might have the Big-C. That was a real scare, I’m just glad it’s already over.
I made a deal with my husband that I would accompany him to look toyota oem parts if he will come with me to a prayer meeting last Sunday (the oxymoron of things). And he did come with me and even sang and raised his arm during worship. So now you know where I’ll be this weekend, doing the most boring thing in the world for a woman! A deal is a deal so I have to keep the end of my bargain no matter what.
It is such a joy to play with my nephew who’s turning 5 months old soon. He’s more responsive now and so easy to make him smile or giggle. I love the cooing sound he makes every time he tries to converse with us. He seems to understand everything that we are telling him. Time really flies, my SIL just gave birth to him last September and now he is already playing with us. Soon, we will need humphreys teething coz he is growing up so fast! I hope he won’t feel a lot of pain when that starts to happen. I really love him very much.
I was so burn out about a lot of things lately that one day I decided to stop and smell the roses. I took a day off then just went somewhere quiet alone and just walked around and tried to find beautiful things even in the most dilapidated building that I have passed. When my legs got tired I found a quaint coffee shop and took out a good book from my tote and started reading. But I was not even halfway thru the first chapter when I started to look around. I was so absorbed in my own thoughts when I received a text message from my client ordering handle grips and by that I was zapped back to reality that I have a business to take care of coz it is our family’s bread and butter. It is good to take things slow sometimes but just make sure that you are ready to go back to the hustle and bustle of the real world when duty calls on you again.
Hubby gifted me with a new set of headphones last Christmas since the old one was wrecked by the daughter. At first I really love it because it’s so portable and handle and you can bring it anywhere plus the design and colors are so rad but as time goes by, I feel that it is lacking of something. That “tinging” sound when I listen to music is just not there. I am not even looking for surround or noise reduction features but I just want the feel that as if I am there inside the recording studio or at the concert when the song was being recorded. So I decided to borrow my colleague’s cool Pioneer Headphones and there it is what I have been looking for the magical “TING” sound! So I asked hubby if I could just give his gift to our daughter and I’ll buy a new one and he agreed. So first thing tomorrow, I’ll get me ze coolest headphone ever. I’m so excited!
One of my dearest friends whom I fondly call Achi (big sister in Chinese) is transferring to her dreamhouse come first week of next month. She just couldn’t contain her excitement specially that her very own walk-in closet has already been made. She’s got tons of things and I am not just talking about accessories and clothes but also trinkets and stuff if you know what I mean. I can totally relate since yes, I am a hoarder too that’s what we are called now a days. Anyway, one day we were talking about her pull out shelf in the kitchen and we were brainstorming on how we can make it more fun and funky. We came up with a variety of ideas even painting the door with a big Hello Kitty since she’s addicted to this feline character. And she got all giddy with excitement when Hello Kitty was mentioned and even seriously considered turning not just the pull-out shelves but the entire kitchen into a Hello Kitty Kitchen Fun! But then when we asked her if she thinks her husband would approve of this, she suddenly worn a long face and said “not in this lifetime.” Awww, I feel for her but I can totally understand her husband’s sentiments too.
My BIL has just recently joined a club in their office. Well, if you must know he joined almost all the clubs that his company has offered to its employees. And since he’s very athletic and health conscious, he’s now the newest member of their Mountaineering club! I really admire my BIL when it comes to taking great care of his health. It has always been the healthy way for him since I have known him. And in a couple of months he’ll be celebrating his 30th birthday already and I am thinking of getting him a lowe alpine here. I’m pretty sure that it’ll have great use for him. I just would like to make his mountain adventures comfortable and enjoyable as well.
My hubby has been eyeing on a certain thing since the start of the year. Whenever we go to the mall he would go to the exact same store and ask the sales person if he could look and try the item. I am talking about TAG Heuer watch. So what I did I saved up for 12 months (blood, sweat and tears) and finally when Christmas time came, I wrapped it so beautifully and gave it to him. You can just imagine how surprised and touched he was when he saw that it’s that one thing that he has been obsessing about to have. He knows that it costs an arm and a leg and that I don’t have a high salary so he gathered how I saved up for it. My husband is a good provider. He always makes me happy even with just little gifts that he knows that could bring a smile to my face. It’s about time that I give back. He said that I sure ended the year with a BANG.
