Self Fulfillment

Ok, this is not any one of those drama posts I will be giving you guys, hehehe. I just thought about this while I was riding the transpo on my way to the office. It kind of bugged me on the real reason and the real satisfaction I will have to get as I grow older.

I mean, what really satisfies you? And think about this, what would make you feel so self-fulfilled?

I will enumerate a couple of things that will make me self-fulfilled. First of them is to just wake up in a nice morning, without the rush, have a pretty cool breakfast, get to the office unscathed, and thinking the kids and Hubby are fine, those are tops for me.

I want myself a PSP, will that really satisfy me? For the moment I guess, yes. My mind is full of things, I keep thinking of how we can cope with the order of IDs and so I will have to get myself a little break from all the busy things we do. (Hmmm, very selfish me, is that all I care? Teehee)

I want to move out of the in-laws' house. We have ourself a new house we ca…

What Happened at The Wedding

Image
Well, we started the day (Saturday) with doing the laundry, while we are at it, breakfast was served at 10, we had a late lunch at 1, and the kids were hopefully excited for the wedding.

1.30 pm, we were having turns at the bathroom for our quick showers. Tabebs was really excited over becoming a flower girl, heheheh, and my boy was excited too because the wedding will surely offer him his social experiences since my kids don't really go out as often as they want, they are both enclosed in the four corners of our lot, except when Biboy is at school.

So 2pm came and Tabebs and I went to the hotel to dress up. The kid won't! Yes, she wouldn't ever wear the flower girl gown. Whew, she screamed in the room where people are gathered to have their final touches and colors. I was desperate, I should be, she's just 2. Oh boy! I pulled her out of the room to convince her to dress up because 3pm is almost near.

Finally, I had dress up, but another problem arose, she wouldn't …

Hectic but Pleasant Weekend...

Image
Hi everyone, thanks for those who visited my place while I was not around for the weekend, because of the attacking migraine last Thursday and Friday, and because I was busy with some stuffs over the weekend.

Let me share to you a little bit of what I (we) really do, like I said, my ticket to luxury and financial freedom, admit it, our wages here in the Philippines need to be augmented by sidelines. So here's what Hubby and I do for extra bucks.



These are lovely invitations for Suzette and Ronald's wedding slated this 26th of July.

Hubby and I make wedding invitations, since hubby is a computer engineer, he designs and lays out such graphics, and I design the final touches... and here are some wee bits of the wedding favors...



A very nice stuff, hehehe. Perfect for tea, errr... would you really use this cup?

And these are also some yummy gifts for a wedding favor... what say you, hehehe. We wrapped these 2F Kitkats on a wedding theme-designed label. For the theme, they used lemo…

What's the Cure for Migraine?

And that is what's killing me now, whatever is the cure for this, I don't know. I have been feeling this for more than three years now and I take Mefenamic acid, Dolfenal 250 mg. but I guess it does not work for me now, so i added another 250 mg dosage. I am taking 500 mg now but the pain still comes, and it is driving me crazy. It comes once or twice in a month especially when i am nearing my period. It attacks me the whole day until the nighttime that I can't even shut my eyes off only to feel numb about the freakin' headache.

This is such a bad thing for me because I. have. stuffs. to. do.

I have this order of wedding invitation to finish, and a thousand more IDs to do. Being my extra job, they can't be ignored because they give me ticket to luxury and financial freedom. Whew, so there, Happy day for you guys. I am sending off a loot of mags to Toni of Wifelysteps, and a card for of Caryn of Sari-saring Kulay. I will be taking a blogging break, but soon as I have …

Love Sonnet XVII

Image
by Pablo Neruda I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom and carries
hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
and thanks to your love, darkly in my body
lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don't know any other way of loving
but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.----------------------------------------------------

Little Princess and the Prince

I woke up early in the morning, 5:30, cooked rice, did some chores, cleaned the house, and grabbed a chance to sit down and do my sideline jobs. By 6:15, my daughter , 2 yrs and 7 months old Tabebs, came out of the room, crying. At this point in time, she seems to anchor unto me like I wouldn't come back when I leave her. She is like that for the moment. I understand this is the time when kids her age need lots of confidence and only mothers can give their children that kind of comfort and security they need.


Mommy and Tabebs




I always love to hug and kiss her, but at times when she seems to be so unruly, I hate it. I love the times when she kisses me, but when she has tantrums and she doesn't give me a peck, I ignore her. I guess that's the way kids are, very unpredictable.


Raine Cassandra, or Tabebs is a very dependent girl. She chooses her own dresses to wear, brushes her teeth alone, and shampoos her hair alone. I only give her assistance when she needs it or when she as…

I dunno what Wordless Wednesdays mean, as i have been reading from other friends' blogs. Are they graded, ranked or what. I really don't know, but I would love to share this with you on a Wednesday...


What say YOU? Di ba, dumaan ka rin sa ganito? Sa pagpapak ng Milo, Ovaltine or anything chocolatey!
