What Can We Do?

We are on enhanced community quarantine right now. I have not tried leaving the house since I last bought groceries from small stores, last Saturday. So far, we’ve been okay. Kids are somehow productive. I’ve been hearing the ukulele and piano more these days. We have been playing volleyball and badminton in the backyard. TheContinue reading “What Can We Do?”

Joke’s On Me

When we picked her up in school….. Me: What did you eat in school? (classmate had a party) G: junk. Me: (laughing) okay. I mean what was the food at Josephs party? G: Who’s Joseph? Joshua pala. That cracked Danae up. 😂   More than one time….. Me: Gianna, are you gonna obey or what?Continue reading “Joke’s On Me”

Public Speaking Workshop

Last month, our group of pastors’ wives had a basic public speaking workshop led by our church mate, Tisha Timbang, who is a member of the Toastmasters Club! To be perfectly honest, I am terrified of speaking in public. I get too nervous even when it’s just a classroom setting, and I’m the student andContinue reading “Public Speaking Workshop”

Pinoy tayo!

One of my kids was saying that her “Filipino friends” talk a certain way. Me: umm Filipino ka din, anak. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ One of my kids overheard my mom talking about Baclaran Day.

Funny February Friday

Gianna is four but sometimes she talks like she’s not. I don’t know why I even wonder when her older sisters were the same when they were her age. Just this morning, we had a conversation that went like this… Me: Stay here. I’ll be back. G: No. I’m scared. Me: Scared? Why are youContinue reading “Funny February Friday”

Low Expectation, High Appreciation

One of the best lessons we have learned, and also teach to other couples, is the concept of Low Expectation and High Appreciation. Coming from a place of hope instead of demand or expectation. A few months ago, I noticed this in action. Not that it’s never at work in our marriage haha. I justContinue reading “Low Expectation, High Appreciation”

Tidying Up

I’ve heard of the Konmari method and since Marie Kondo’s show came out on Netflix recently, I’ve been reading posts about how people have been sorting their stuff and keeping only those that spark joy in them. And since I’ve finished binge watching Grey’s, I decided to watch Tidying Up while organizing the girls’ homeschoolingContinue reading “Tidying Up”
