Back to the Corporate World?


We will be dealing with the Payment processing later for all of the medical bills that I have accumulated the past 9 months! I’m sure it will be a pain in our pocket but at least, I have survived some horrifying experience brought by the preeclampsia condition that I have had. The good thing for me is, I am just at home to take care of my kids and the husband is working very hard for us. My friend, on the other hand, finds it too hard to go back to the corporate world after becoming a mom three months ago. I sure wish her well, but I will be happy for her if she will stay home to watch for the baby now that it’s still too little. The corporate world is knocking at her door, but she’s torn between deciding whether to work or not so I wish her luck in her decision-making!

Sunday with Girlfriends


It has been a very busy weekend for me! After yesterday’s trip down to Westfield for the WI Campmeeting of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, I got tired from the whole day of being outside, roaming around the campground and enjoying the fellowship of our church family. The weather was perfect, only in the low 70s, but my constant standing up and walking around still caused me some swelling. I got so tired when we arrived home that I was able to rest as fast as I could. I am thankful to my housemates for being so considerate of me.


But the tiredness yesterday still didn’t stop me from today’s business. A friend in the nearby town has a daughter who celebrated her 1st birthday yesterday but they have thought of inviting us over for a little get-together: just my family and our selected Pinay girlfriends who we get along so well. Since it was sort of a late birthday event, I made some foodies: Pancit, Pochero, and Cassava Cake. And off we drove to Nekoosa, to A’s place to enjoy our Sunday afternoon away!


Oh, it was wonderful to spend the afternoon with these dear girlfriends!


L to R: Ohlie, yours truly standing up, Melds, Jen, Anah and her daughter, the 1st birthday celebrant

We had a great time feasting and just chitchatting endlessly. There were so much to talk about and so many things to laugh about! Time with girlfriends is always great, isn’t it?


And here are our (Anah’s and mine) kiddos enjoying their time together, too!

Our next purpose to be in this place was actually to shop for the baby stuff that we will be needing for our Baby #2. Anah has so many outgrown baby things from her daughters that instead of giving them away to Goodwill, she and her hubby let us use them. The husband and I are so grateful because all of the stuff are still usable so we will be able to save a lot from buying them, especially the newborn clothes, some feeding essentials, and even the carseat set, playpen, and bouncer. We are left with a few items to purchase so we are very thankful.


Now, preparing for the needs for Baby #2 official starts for us. I am on my 33rd week now so I have but 7 more weeks left. Yay! Time flies by so quick and we are almost there! The excitement keeps rolling and I am partly scared about the whole birthing story as well. Lol. Oh well, everything will be well I hope and pray!


And that’s how special my weekend has been! I hope yours is equally memorable as well!
