While they are sleeping
Yes, this might be my only chance! The kids are finally asleep and, thanks to my afternoon nap, I am still wide awake past midnight. Good for me. Finally, some “me” time. I did promise I’d be back, right?
While they are asleep, I was able to have a few minutes of TV and watch the latest news. P-Noy is so much in the news lately. I wasn’t able to watch the inauguration live last June 30 that when I caught excerpts of it, I couldn’t help but get a little teary-eyed. Yeah, there’s no harm in us pinoys wishfully thinking and hoping for the best. New beginnings, fresh start for everyone.
While they are asleep, I got to munch on Trader Joe’s dark chocolate-covered pretzels. Yummy! Sweet, salty, bittersweet, sweet, salty, bittersweet was my mantra! Had to stop myself from finishing the whole bag!
While they are sleeping, I am staring at the computer screen, trying to sort out my thoughts. It IS hard to backtrack more than six months of happenings now that I’m back to blogging again. But then again, I cannot just start blogging without backtracking. And so I’m stuck here in the middle of nowhere, not knowing where or how to start. It doesn’t help that my mind is waiting for Phoenix to holler “MOM” any second now. I am pretty sure any mom would know how I feel. It’s waiting for the expected. Something that’s bound to happen, like always.
My little time to spend on me and my thoughts are still wandering to where my kids are. Oh well, better luck next time. Hopefully, my ramblings will make more sense.
