I haven’t blogged for so long since we started moving so I just have so many things to talk about. Not like you care about my ramblings – but since you are reading my journal, you might be curious about how I am doing. So I will be doing some random writing about things that I remember since the last time I got the chance to really sit around and blog. So here it goes…
Family first. My Mom just celebrated her 65th birthday on the 18th of June. Father’s Day was just three days after and my mom said they will be having cake to honor how great my Dad is. I am just so lucky they are my parents… the two people who I know will always love me unconditionally, lift my spirits up when I am down and will always be there for me no matter what. They provided me with great foundation and as mentors, they continue to teach me things I ought to know in life. In contrast with whatever is said about me, I am a good person because of them. I aspire big in life because of them. I dream to be someone because of them. I am what I am now because of them. I will be what I PLAN to be because of them. And if I have to say I owe someone, it is just proper for them to get all the credit.

At Home. We are doing great! The commute to the city is a little further away now that we live in the suburbs. But I love the drive up the mountains of Riverside. We pass by the prestigious Gavilan 2-Acre Ranch homes, a beautiful private community overviewing Lake Matthews. It is an amazing wide open space of green grasses. Very peaceful and calming specially when you are coming home after a whole busy day from the city. Our moving was tiring but it went smooth. We did the hauling ourselves (like we’ve always done), we were so beat for so many days but it was all worth it…


Rolly drove to San Bernardino to pick up our new mattress. He then took the freeway going home. He said a lot of drivers were kinda pissed seeing him hauling this huge thing that makes the Durango really small…


Chez Grand’mere. Alyssa is having so much fun at school. I can’t believe how much she learned for a little over three months. When she palys with the letters, she can arrange them (with me spelling it) to form my name. She can’t read yet, but that will come sooner. She is still into singing and keeps telling us she is going to Hollywood. She is into crafts now too. I can’t believe how much money I spent on stamps, stickers, pens and papers, scissors and a lot more! She also made her first necklace some weeks ago. Besides being a lot of work, she is just darn adorable and we are very proud of her.

Health. I’ve been on a seven-day antibiotic medication and also was prescribed a bottle of cough syrup. I am almost done with my Augmentin, one more capsule to go and I should be ok. For the cough syrup, I didn’t even take it because last Tuesday I had a bad case of drowsiness that lasted the whole day of my shift. Nancy was even so scared because I might not be able to stay up for our 12-hour schedule. But I made it despite looking drugged as Gus said. Thanks for gracefully describing how I look!

Work. So I am done taking my medicine and I am feeling way much better. I am still coughing but not as bad and not as frequent as before. This week is my 8-hour shift and because we are shifting to another department. I am being hopeful that I will stay on my regular hours because twelve hour straight every other week is very tiring. Financially good… but health-wise, not always worth it. There are those mornings I literally drag myself out of bed, eyes closed bumping into walls. Not enough time to fix up so I just tie my hair up on a ponytail (everyday). Makeup? Powder, a little bit of eyeshadows, lipgloss and blushons. I do it at work – in just under two minutes!
