a bear and a chicken

I woke up today feeling real good coz I had 9 hours of sleep which for those who know me knows that it is a rare thing. I felt refreshed and recharged but in a few minutes, realized that the sun was shining a tad too brightly and started becoming a wee bit grumpy. I was sipping my coffee to get me out of my bear mode when I heard it ... cluck cluck cluck cluck cluck cluck ... I listened hard and realized it was really saying "Mommy, this and this. Mommy, this and that. Mommy Mommy Mommy."

Yep, it was B and his incessant chatter. He was sounding like a chicken to my sleepy mind because he wouldn't stop chattering. I knew he was happy that I was at home and not at work but all my mind could hear a couple of minutes earlier was "cluck cluck cluck cluck cluck" and all I could think of was "GROWL GROWL GROWL!"

And this post is the result ... as I am writing this, I can still see the big brown bear running around trying to catch the silly chicken. Lol.

Happy Saturday everyone! This bear is getting ready to listen to the chicken now.

old friends and new beginnings

my colorful desk
Alexandre pasta
pork barbeque steak .. WINNER!
with my favorite guy
with a long time friend, She

It felt so good to meet with an old friend from elementary years. The funny thing is, if it wasn't for a change of career and a new beginning, I wouldn't have been able to meet her again. We now work in the same building though she's in Tower 1 and I am in Tower 2 but at least, we can now try to meet weekly and have lunch out. I felt so happy being able to touchbase with her again.
Also, today was really special coz I saw J and its been a week since we last saw each other. He had a death in the family and of course, I gave way to that though it saddened me that I was not there with him to lend support and comfort him. He saw my new office and kinda liked it. Hehe ....
Pretty good day if I may say so. =)

goofing around in my new world

I love it! Lol

great loss

Today, I had 2 big news. One was that a cousin of mine got his girlfriend pregnant while the other was that my babe's uncle has died. Both are news; one is sad while the other is supposed to be a cause for celebration.

One is about life and the other is about death. This, makes me realize once again how fleeting life is. In a snap, things can be taken aways from you; in a snap, life can change just like that. JUST.LIKE.THAT.

My cousin is only 21. He hasn't even graduated. Now, he's about to be a father. My babe's uncle is just ready to enjoy life. He still has kids who needs him. Now, he's gone to be with our maker.

One was supposed to be a cause for celebration. The other, a cause for mourning. Unfortunately, both news has left me mourning; for the loss of a future and the loss of a life.

pizza hut dinner and some shopping

Today we went out and bought some clothes for me. It's been quite some time since I did that and it felt so good getting clothing tips from my Mom and even underwear guidance. Lol. I think we did pretty well with the stuff we bought. Afterwards, we ate at Pizza Hut and I just really love their supreme pizza. YUMMY!

sick sick baby

My poor son got a fever due to the extreme weather changes. Poor baby. =( He fell asleep because he had a severe headache. Mommy hurts because he hurts but I need to be strong for him and not baby him too much.

praying for guidance

Dear Lord,

Help me ... help me be the Mother that my son needs me to be for him to grow up a decent young man. Right now, I feel like such a failure. He's gotten so unruly and I've tried almost everything. I've spanked, let him face the wall, and talked to him. Nothing seems to work. I am told its because my son knows he can manipulate me and because I have such a soft heart for him.

Give me courage and wisdom Lord. Please help me be the Mother that my son needs me to be for him to grow into a young, decent man.

my family
showing off the mojos
2 brats errr ... angels

mommy and B
I had fun with my family today. I wasn't expecting to go out but my Mom had a huge scare when the fan on the electric fan went flying yesterday. So today, she asked me and my little sister out to shop for some fans and I bought B along to give the help some rest.
Surprise surprise, I ended up buying a laptop for my Mom. It's a LENOVO S10-2 model and its pretty cool if I may say so. She liked it. I felt good. Hehe.

2 fast food places and a swimming pool


Eventhough my B has been a mighty big pain in the you know what the past few days, I couldn't resist taking him out today since next week is the last week of my vacation and I will be working again. Here are some shots of the times that my son was an angel. My Mom and lil sis went with us so we bonded as well. I just have to say this, my Mom is so freaking gorgeous still. ARGH! =p

planning my 2010

A lot has gone on since the start of 2010. It seems changes are the rule of this year. My family and I have so many things that we need to plan for that I feel the need to list it down:
  • must buy new 6 stove/range cooking thingie
  • must find a rent to own house by May
  • must buy new wardrobe (I really need this!)
  • must get B enrolled in new school
  • must get B all his school stuff
  • must start/fund new business
So many changes. I think we're gonna have a fantastic 2010.
