thirty-nine

39. yep. as of yesterday, i am now 39 years old.  officially, just a year away from the big 4-o.  just as last year, the day went on with the usual chaos–work & household matters taking the daily lot. not that it matters, on the contrary, in the past years, i kinda welcome the thought…

medical faux pas

i just got back from my 3rd therapy session today.  i guess its true what they say that once you pass the 2nd session, a great deal of change can be felt.  yep. i feel much better now.  my back feels so much lighter.  in my previous post, i wrote about being in great pain…

cheers!

i know i complained about being really tired more than a bit last week.  well, guess what? i finally got a chance to relax a bit over the weekend.  nope, it’s not the kind of thing that i did nothing.  on the contrary, it was quite the opposite.  i was about town last weekend.  ok,…

mad world

it’s just the middle of the week but  that the load of the entire workforce seem to land on my shoulders.  im so tired!   im on the brink of burning out.  these past two days came like a blur.  last thing i knew i am always rushing to something…. perhaps one of my biggest stresses…

pain

for days now, i have been in constant pain.  for almost a month now i have been complaining about back aches.  first it was on the upper part.  thinking that it as a manifestation of stress, i had regular massages every weekend.  but the pain didn’t ease.  instead, it seem to have worsened.  the gnawing…

homecoming

about a week ago i had the rare opportunity of visiting my hometown, naga city.  i jumped on the chance for two major reasons: (1) the chance to travel alone; (2) the 300th year celebration of our patron saint, the virgin of penafrancia. don’t get me wrong, i love traveling with hubby and the kids. …

enjoying “freedom”

i know, i know…trickled posts again. but i assure you folks that this matter will soon be put to rest.  for more than a week now, i have been enjoying my “freedom”. lol. don’t get me wrong folks, what i mean is the freedom to pursue life outside the shackles of domesticity and the corporate jungle. …

movie night

i especially enjoyed last night because i had the tv and dvd all to myself.  it has been a rare occurence for me these days to have a chick flick marathon.  so, i welcomed and enjoyed the opportunity. i watched two movies last night.  both of them stars one of my rising female favorites–amanda seyfried. …

aging gracefully

i never thought there will come a time in my life that i didn’t want to be reminded of my age.  well, this year, is definitely the first.  a few days ago, i officially turned 38.  unlike all my previous birthdays,  this one quietly sneaked in on me.  no frills, no funfare, no expectations–and it…

dizzy spells

i have to see a doctor really soon.  for several days now, i’m having dizzy spells.  don’t know where it came from, but im pretty sure that it is beginning to get to my nerves.  i had a scare last sunday, when i almost hit the bathroom pavement while giving julia a bath.  my vision…

at last, an updated version of me

after weeks and weeks of “silence”, i find myself back in these pages again.  it feels like the first time for me.  with so much coming into mind, i am at a lost as to where to start.  actually, i never really cut myself off the blogging world.  i, perhaps, was in a temporary writing…

friends forever:)

i am still ecstatic about last sunday.  after more than 5 years, karen, my college best friend met up and bonded the whole afternoon.  naturally, i brought hubby and the kids with me.  we all met at gateway mall and after a hearty lunch, hubby and kob went separate ways (my boys had a basketball…
