Quote of the day

“Most people who meet my wife quickly conclude that she is remarkable. They are right about this. She is smart, funny and thoroughly charming. Often, after hearing her speak at some function or working with her on a project, people will approach me and say something to the effect of, you know, I think the world of you, Barack, but your wife, wow!”

– Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope

Quote of the day

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”

Cleaning up time!

Woke up 5:25am and helped the kiddo prepare to go to school. Had a heavy breakfast and started sorting the stocked papers on the upper shelves, and worked my way down. There's so much paper to throw and sort, plus dust along the way. My mom and house-help joined me when it was time to clean the windows and other shelves.  I made sure all are well-dusted and clean. I sorted the books in the wall shelf and made sure current books and school supplies are within reach. The house-help applied floor wax, while me and my mom finished the TV rack. We were literally covered in dust. I insisted we take a break (lunch) and resumed after. We put up new curtains and sheets. I was so relieved to see the room so clean. I took a bath and turned on the AC. My foot was so sore and my back hurts from all the walking. Had a power nap for an hour or so and I felt energized. My foot was not sore anymore. I had a couple of minutes just lying down and doing nothing---enjoying the silence. I imagine myself with a little girl on the bed. I really can't wait.

I had a couple of minutes of facetime with the hubby and mother-in-law. Then at 5pm, the kiddo arrived from school. My mom insist that we go to the mall again. I bought extra pillow, so my hubby will have pillows to use when he arrives next year and a bed sheet for the kiddo's double deck bed.

I had a really productive rest day this week. Next week I plan to sort my make-up drawer and kiddo's study table. Then maybe start sorting and throwing the expired ingredients I left in my baking supply container. I really miss baking and hopefully I can resume baking soon.

Happy TGIF tomorrow.

Check-up and shopping...

It's my rest day today and I was very excited for my monthly OB check-up this morning, only to find out that my OB can't make it and a reliever will arrive. It was already 12noon, so I decided to have lunch first. I called my mom and had lunch with her at Bigoli. I ate a plate of Italian spaghetti with garlic. It was heaven. I made up my mind to just go ahead with the check-up. My questions with my OB will have to wait until next month. Besides, we have no work-ups and I was really feeling fine. So after that, I went to see my mom, who was already started shopping. I  bought new born baby stuff--white tie-sides, pj's, towel, recieving blanket, wipes, 2 feeding bottles etc. It's been awhile since I went shopping for baby stuff and I wanted to have the must-have's only. My dad, along with the kiddo fetched us aroung 4pm and decided to hit the other mall. So I was able to buy the tub and comforter there. We had dinner afterwards and went home. I gathered items on the baby and showed it to hubby on facetime. My excitement went up a notch because I really really wanted to see baby Lj already. So tommorrow is cleaning up time...
