I have been awol for a while now. And my plate's been quite full. I've been busy with things and one of them is this. I've rediscovered Zentangle and I've spent the last few months tangling to my heart's content. It's been a blast. So much that I, the cheapskate, have signed up for the… Continue reading Plowing Away…
I started a bullet journal in July 2016. It made sense since it was right in the middle of the year. Six months had passed. We had another six to go. It was a logical place to start. So, I ordered a nice little notebook and started journaling. Then came December. I hadn't gone through the… Continue reading Nice Round Numbers
Valentine's day. Definitely not something Mr. M and I care about. But that week is always very special. I'll give you a hint: Birthday + Me. What's actually fun is that everybody has a birthday but I usually celebrate my birthday for weeks. I (shamelessly) start reminding Mr. M and Ka weeks in advance. I… Continue reading My 35th
A few days back I went to a very good ObGyn at a very good hospital near here. One thing led to another and soon she figured out that we weren't planning on having any more kids. She was quite saddened by this piece of information. She told us how she came from a very… Continue reading Why I WILL. NOT. Do It Again
I have been busy trying to lose weight for a while now. I am now at an all time high of 68 kilos, not counting the 70 from my full-term pregnancy days. My knees have been hurting constantly and I really can never sing "I feel pretty" without the voice in my head going, "Yeah!… Continue reading Losing It
Can't believe it's been two weeks already!!! That must mean that I have dissociative personality disorder popularly known as multiple personality disorder. Wait a second. I know old habits die hard and you are compelled to wonder how on earth our having been here 2 weeks could possibly mean that I have MPD, but what I… Continue reading Who, me?
I am not to blame this time around. It's him. He's itching to go home. I wanted to stay in China for a little while longer. It's only been a year and a half since we moved here. I have been in love with China ever since. But, after 14 years of living abroad, he's… Continue reading Itchy Feet
A friend of mine asked me a few weeks ago how would one know when the right time to have a baby is. I told her, "the right time is when you want a baby". Since nothing can ever prepare you for what's coming, there's really no point trying to be prepared. You know, it's… Continue reading The Martyr
I was just skimming through my blog today. I know! That's how weird I am...I actually deliberately spend some time every once in a while reading older posts on my own blog!! Just in case you are curious to know why, I do that to keep track of what I've been writing about and sometimes… Continue reading Coming up…
Yesterday Mr. M and I were talking. You know. Like normal people who love each other sometimes do. Now, don't get me wrong. I am certainly not trying to imply that we are normal people. I have a little more conscience (I still can't believe that that's how this word is spelt!!!) than that. But we do occasionally go… Continue reading Normal, Eh? What’s That?
