Remembering my Friend CloudEight

Today is May 12 and it is the birthday of a friend.

Well, I consider him as a friend as we were able to reconnect a few years ago thru Facebook.

He was a crush of mine?

Well, we had a mutual understanding of sort or we were just friends, I guess.

Okay, I think he was a Puppy love at my very young age of 15 and 16 and 17.

Well, he sort of made my world more colorful.

Anyways, I had a memory of one of his birthday parties, the first and last one that I was able to attend.

He invited me, so, I attended.

I was very excited and nervous and I did all those preparations to look good and smell good,(huh!)

So, we went to his party. He was surprised? Anyways, he greeted me and OMG, I got a peck on my Left Cheek, a seconder one at that or maybe, it was not even a second.

I forgot if I did bring a gift? Maybe not? I was already a big gift (hahaha!).

Anyways, the dreaded part? Yes, the dreaded one—he introduced me to his girlfriend!!! Imagine that!

I kept him in my heart for two years and we were even “pen pals” as he was working abroad already, we had a seven, almost eight years gap—thus my codename for him (CloudEight).

I was shocked and wanted to leave the party right away.

My friends sort of sympathized with me and just tried to cheer me up.

I could not remember if I was able to eat. (hahaha!)

Anyways, we lost contact after that. I had a real boyfriend when I reached 18. That boyfriend of mine is my husband now. (happy endings, huh!)

So, just a couple of years ago, CloudEight and I was able to reconnect. Yeah, we are both matured already. No hard feelings anymore as I realized how a gentleman he was for taking care of my feelings. He did not take advantage of me at all. I must admit, during our first conversations thru messenger, I was sort of joyful.

Today, I remember him.

He passed away a year ago because of a very painful accident. He was in public service. He was just trying to help one of his neighbors but he turned out dead. It was very sad.

I know he is in heaven now. He was a good man.

CloudEight, my prayers for you, now that you are in heaven. I also ask you to watch over me also and be one of my angels.(if it is not too much to ask)

Thank you for all the memories—all the colors that you contributed to my teenage years.

 

Thinking of ways to save more money

Yes, I am thinking of ways to save more money right now. Well, what are my first steps? Here, at home, of course!
1. List down all expenses and how much- of course there should be a baseline or starting point. I plan to start tomorrow. :)
2. Make an inventory of existing supplies:
A. Toiletries
B. Canned goods
C. Rice
D. Meat
E. Condiments
…and other things…
From here, I think I can already save some Pesos if only I can also strategize on using them or what brand should I buy.
3. Of course, my favorite thing to do is to look for promo offers! Example: Shampoo plus free bottle of conditioner- though I think that is not totally free but offered at a lower price only. That is why some promos just put “save as much as a particular amount” rather than saying that it is a free offer.

For now, these are the things that I can think of.
I shall go back here for some update on the progress and maybe record here my inventory of our existing supplies. :)

For record purposes

I am writing this post for record purposes. Funny, but really, I am already forgetful nowadays. I even want everything to be in naked glass or transparent containers so that I can see everything.

Anyways, it is a rainy day today and I am on vacation leave. It is my fifth day in the house since Saturday as Monday and Tuesday were Holidays. I planned to do many things the past five days but I think I only accomplished two things considering that it is almost 5PM already and the day is about to end. Well, I was able to wash clothes and iron some of my office clothes. I was also able to pay the rent in the cemetery where my brother was laid to rest. Imagine, my last payment was 2011 based on the records. I could not really remember. Anyways, thus, this post. I paid for 2012-2016 already so I hope next year, I will only pay the regular yearly rent.

Monday wishes

It is Monday once again! I pray that I will have the energy to do all my tasks. I hope that I am done with all the side effects of the medications that I am taking. I hope that I am not diabetic anymore–if and if it is possible. Anyways, there are really lot of things to do in the office. Oh, God, please help me to prioritize. Give me wisdom. Let me be able to interact with my co-workers with joy and respect. I really wish that I will be able to start the week with a bang. Please bless me with good health, oh Lord.

Life Update

It has been a month since my last post here? Oh, how time flies.
So, here are some updates about me:
Diet- Epic fail once again! I stopped weighing myself. One thing sure, I am fat and heavier.
Health- Yes, I separated the two, though they are related, right? Health and Diet! Anyways, I have been feeling unhealthy these days. I am experiencing some nape ache. Headaches are frequent as well.
Career- I asked my manager two days ago that I would like to transfer to another team. I pray that I will be able to really MOVE. Well, I lift it all to God.
Spiritual- well, I am a bad one. I know I have not been going to Church regularly. I think I really need to improve on this one also.
Family- well, it is a good aspect of my life. I went out with my siblings last weekend.
Married Life- Hmmm… something I should not publicly share. Hahahaha. Well, one thing, we are good. :)
Motherhood- since I am a career woman, I think I suck in this one also.

There’s my Life Update!

Keeping my mind busy

He knows how to make me smile. Well, as I mentioned in my previous posts, I am quite depressed. Well, I really do not have any inspiration about life. Would you believe that I tried studying French language? Well, that’s how depressed I am. I also downloaded brain exercise games. Anyways, I would like to keep my mind busy instead of sulking.

So, I tried checking my blogging accounts and voila! I got some assignments. Another diversion–to write.

The importance of having the same point of views between husbands and wives

I am writing based on emotions right now so maybe what I would be writing here are not really what I think? Anyways, I guess, it would still make sense.

I am a wife and I would say that I am a submissive one. I love my husband very much and he is the reason why I live this life. He and my son are the reasons why I wake up every morning. They are the reasons why I go to work.

Lately or maybe all throughout our married life, I am noticing that we have more arguments. We have different point of views over so many things. Sometimes we fight. Just like right now, he went out because we fought. The reason of our argument? I do not like to divulge since I think it is really shallow. I must admit though that I somehow hurt him with my words. Well, sometimes he hurt me too but maybe he is not aware of it.

Anyways, I will just pray for it and maybe, I will give in. No, I will not because I need to teach him a lesson. But then again, where is the submissive me? It is written in the Bible that the wife must submit to his husband.
