I miss the sun already.
Speaking of renovations, our outside kitchen is also being beautified - my mom has started to bring out her kitchen stuff & long kept utensils. They can finally have a proper place since the old kitchen was quite small.
I am excited to the renovations to get done; aside from the new and improved garage, kitchen and bathroom, I just really want to have the peace and quiet back. All the drilling, hammering and banging is disturbing the babies sleep.
This is going to end soon if the weather cooperates. So, please, rain rain go away!:P

And...here we go!
1. So many of us find love in the wrong places only to learn in a hard way that love is not meant to be found, it finds you.
2. Smile even in hardship.
3. Those who are accepting of failure easily can achieve the goal sooner.
4. Death is waiting quietly.
5. Light is in both the good and evil.
6. I really can't think of anything clever to say with the phrase," of all that is ordinary."
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to playing some more Angry Birds, tomorrow my plans include going to my son's school for the quarterly meeting and Sunday, I want to hear mass, buy groceries and rest!

Is it because of the kind of food we're taking? Or because we are very dependent on medicines that our bodies can't fight these germs/bacteria/whatnot naturally?
Phooey. How can I possibly afford this!!!???

My finances are experiencing drought these days. After a gluttonous Christmas - I am down to my last peso. Good thing my online sideline is keeping me afloat.
However, this bag obsession of mine, just like my weight loss obsession has to take a back seat - at least for now.
I am 85% convinced of cutting off all my hair. I want to have super short hair for 2011. Whatchathink?
I think it's fab, but I am scared.... -_- Anyway, off to a more meaningful topic, my vision was 20-20 before, now that I've started staring into PC's 8 hours (or more) a day it has deteriorated drastically. I squint. I can't read from afar. I can't recognize faces 10 feet away from me and I constantly have headaches. This could only mean 1 thing.
I need eyeglasses. I am the last of my girl cousins who'll get one. I have an eye doctor but I'll make a switch and try the more progressive doctors which has newer machines, maybe have a vision screener to accurately check my eye grade. When I went to the doctor to tell her about my eye problem she said I was fine, but I really was seeing in blur. Maybe it's because her machines were old.
For the new year, I'd have new hair and a new pair of specs ;) Change is good.

I have crystals - not in a good way. I've had stomach pains, back pains and I have recurring UTI which led the doctor to check out my kidneys. Lo and behold, we found out I have crystals in my right kidney which can lead to kidney stones if I don't change my lifestyle.
Water therapy. No more juices. Iced-tea PLUS because of my hyper-acidity I can't drink soda's too. This means, I can only take H2O from now on.
I have yet to talk to my doctor since I wasn't able to meet her yesterday. I hope she has good news (i.e. some medications I can take to dissolve the crystals). Wish me luck!
The choices are endless plus they are really affordable. There are women's scrubs, men's scrubs, hats, lab coats, medical coats and many more. The great thing is, if your order reached $155 or more, they offer free shipping! My friend was pretty pleased with the information I gave her and she wonders why I know so much. I told her, too much time staying online and shopping online has given me super powers especially when it comes to clothing, ladies stuff and of course, shopping.
This year though, I promise to avoid unnecessary shopping. Can I do it? I think so. But first, I have to check out these green scrubs - my friends birthday is coming up and it's a great gift idea, practical and chic.
Dark and brooding. I lips have swelled up 2x its size. Jacob was able to hit it AGAIN. The thing with him is that he moves a lot when we're sleeping that I can't see him coming. You know how you've been lying for quite some time already and he suddenly gets up and lies back down suddenly. Of course, my face is the most convenient place that he lands.
I actually cried because of the pain.
This week is going to be hell. I can see it now.

If you see me you'd think I was in a cat-fight or worse, is a battered wife. In reality, I am a battered Mom. My 1-year old was moving so much he hit my lip with his teeth. My lips got torn and it was rather deep.
I have a picture but it's too gruesome to show. Anyway, instead of thinking about it, I am busying myself with reading about online business degree's which maybe I can take. We are seriously discussing plans of following my Husband to Norway and I am thinking of my options. I can either find a job which will allow me to stay at home (business or online job) or I can find a job in an office there. Whichever - the fact remains that if we decide to migrate there, I need a job. Norway is a very expensive country and 2 kids isn't a joke.
Wish me luck.
Why read online business degree you ask? A friend of mine from college who is very eager about sharing to me his stories on how much better it is for him now that he has resigned from his 8-5 job and focused on his business. While I do agree - I am not yet confident in myself to pursue a business. Taking a business course, online or not will make me learn more about the ins and outs of putting up a business and I intend to pursue that before anything else.
Hubby and his brother were flying to Norway yesterday, unfortunately, they got left behind for their connecting flight in Qatar. I don't know exactly whose fault it was - all I know they had 50 minutes waiting time. Apparently, it was not enough.
I can picture them now running through the airport and missing their flight - looking like contestants in amazing race.
Now they are stuck in Qatar airport for hours and hours. Good thing there's the laptop and iPhone that's keeping them busy. Hubby didn't bring the PS3 anymore but I am sure if he did the hours of waiting would be a bit more bearable. Forget the hassle though and the waiting because once they get to Frankfurt they will still have to rebook their flight and that will cost 'em.
Hopefully, everything will be smooth sailing from there. Work starts next week for Hubby and I don't want any stress for him and his brother.
We don't exactly know when we'll see each other again. His contract ends April but if he gets extended again, that could mean we'll see each other December!
I miss him already.

How young is too young to have a laptop?
The reason for my steady weight gain is simple. Just before December, I was told by my doctor I have hyper acidity. After which I got scared to skip meals which means I ate and ate. ;) December came and went. Parties, Dinners and family gathering was abundant. Food and my fave lechon was also abundant. I love this time of the year because of the food and great dessert. Can't it be December forever?
I nearly gained 5 pounds, good thing I gained only 3.
Still. Gotta lose those pounds soon.
Kicked off 2011 with a family trip to Davao. We went to Samal Island and stayed at Pearl Farm. It was a piece of heaven.
Wish we could have stayed longer!
Tomorrow, it is back to reality, Hubby will be flying back to Norway for work. This means, I am back to counting the days that we'll be together again.
Nevertheless, the month long vacation with him was a lot of fun. It's never goodbye - just see you soon. ;)

I wanted to "stop and smell the roses" in 2010 but I never got the chance to. No time. Busy. Schedule does not permit. Phooey. Being a grown up is no fun at times.
This year - I hope it won't be that hectic. I promise to lessen online time and maximize family bonding. Goodbye Facebook, blogging, online shopping and Plants Vs. Zombies. Well, let's see if I can keep this resolution.
What are my other resolutions for 2011?
- Drink more water.
- Wear sunscreen.
- Keep it easy.
- Drink my vitamins. (I was always getting sick last year)
- Save more.
