Nine Days

Monday, December 16, 2013

It’s just nine more days before Christmas and I can’t feel the season yet. Just this morning on the way to school, K asked if we could decorate the house. She plans on putting a snowman and a tree (Nanay, let’s put a small tree only because a bog one can’t fit our condo…). I just didn’t have the heart to tell her that nope, I’m not in the mood to decorate anymore, so I told her to ask Tatay later. I know Christmas is for Jesus, and I am guilty for feeling this way, so I hope my mood will change before the weekend. I owe it to my kids to be happy.

In one of my FB groups, this was asked: “If you can request God for a talent, what is it?”

I replied and said, “I’ve always wanted to learn how to play an instrument.” It’s my frustration. I never learned to play the piano, because I’m impatient to learn the basics, LOL. Maybe I should have prayed for more patience eh? Anyway, the thread starter replied to me. She said she wants that too but will just probably convince her kids to do it. Well, that’s my plan also. I’ve been convincing K to like the violin but for now, she’s interested in the xylophone and once she told me she wants the flute and drums too. The drums, that’s not feasible at the moment so perhaps a beginner flute will do for now? Maybe she’ll want that for Christmas.

I’m back writing articles for clients. But only as a part-timer. Now that I’m a fulltime stay-at-home-mom, I only get to work for a few hours. I am not complaining though. The little money that I earn helps anyway. I am happy that I get to choose which topics to work on. I sometimes accept topics that are challenging, those that I need to research on first. And  I learn, which is good. Just the other day, I had to write about heroin addiction and rehab. Thankfully, I have no one close to me who is addicted to this substance or any other drugs, but writing about it made me understand individuals and families who had to go through that ordeal.

Anyway, yeah. Life is kinda busy these days; my hands are full with the girls and Ane, the house, and my work. I’ll try to drop by here as often as I could.
