To be honest, I almost forgot I have this blog.
Nope, I did not travel out of the country. Neither did I go on a grand escape in any of the high-end beaches of Boracay or Bohol. I wish I had that luxury, but maybe not now. The truth is I buried myself to work in the last two months that passed. I got busy but looking back all I could really remember is work, work, and more work. It’s not that I am complaining, but I am ABSOLUTELY grateful that my mind is temporarily experiencing a shut-down, and thereby giving me a good reason to start blogging again. Let’s see what I’ve done aside from work that left me no time for other things.
1. ORGANIZED MY CLOSET.This is not exactly a fun one because it meant dumping some of the clothes I bought from my hard-earned money. But some things just really have to go. Tops and dresses that I haven’t worn for two years already or at least those I-wish-I-can-still-wear items that are just making me frustrated. When I was done I couldn’t believe how spacious my part of the closet has become. Somehow it made me feel good because I only left those I know I can wear without any guilt or disappointment.
2. REVISITED MY BOOK SHELF. Over the years, I have collected a great deal of books. I love James Patterson, Sophie Kinsella, and John Grisham. They occupy most of my collection. But I wanted to feel light so I went over my Sophie Kinsella paperback and read some of them again. I could finish one book in a day, so after re-reading some of them I felt my mind is clear again. Reading has always been a wonderful therapy for me, I just had to do it as often as I can.
3. AVAILED OF A GOOD MASSAGE PACKAGE. In the kind of work I do, I knew I needed regular body massage to soothe my aching back. I guess I should invest on a good work ergonomic chair as well to lessen my back aches from all day sitting and working. But that has to come later. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to avail of an affordable, really good massage package. The only problem is I had to find proper timing to travel from Las Piñas to Trinoma in Quezon City just to complete the remaining sessions in my membership. But that’s okay I’m sure I’ll find the time.
4. UPDATED MY RECORDS. See, being married means you’d have to update your transaction records and that includes bank information, Philhealth, SSS, TIN, etc. My bad because I didn’t take care of those until this year so I had to squeeze them in my work schedules. I still have one more left for my other bank and I’ll just have to decide doing that in the coming weeks.
5. LEARNED PILATES. I did not enroll in a Pilates class, yet. But lucky me, I run across video tutorials on the basic exercises. So every morning I had to do my own 30-minute Pilates at home. I wish there’s a Pilates class somewhere here in Las Piñas and I swear I’ll never hesitate enrolling. The routines really sweat me out. I learned there’s yoga class nearby but I am not really fond of yoga (though it helps tone muscles and improve balance and concentration). For now, I’d have to continue doing Pilates at home. It helps rid off stress and the stretching makes me feel really great.
