A few months ago, I shared a
video that made me cry buckets of tears.
Normally, I am giddy excited every Friday afternoon. I live and breathe for weekends. Long weekends are even extra-special. There is so many projects that I want to work on, so many recipes to try and so many movies to watch. On stressful days like today and the past 7 days, make that 10 days including the heavy rains, thanks to the monsoon, all I really want is to go home and have a boring, uneventful weekend with my family.
I wish all our weekends are as simple and memorable as that of the last weekend of July.
Saturday, 7:36AM. Aki washed his urine-soaked shorts. Normally, when he forgets to use the potty, we ask him to wipe the mess. He was extra-industrious that morning and even volunteered to help Ate Dorina in the laundry area.
Saturday, 8:50AM. Aki made breakfast bohgoh (burger). Yum!
Saturday, 10:33AM. Mother-son bonding at the garden. Aki helped me spray the homemade pesticide to white bugs which have been attacking our chilli plants.
Saturday, 12:42PM. Aki showing Daddy that he is ready for more martial arts lessons. Here he is, practicing his “guard” on the unwilling sparring partner… Me!
Saturday, 4:21PM. Gaye marries Aaron! So happy to see my good friend so happy! What made the day even more special is the announcement from our other friend, Nyl, that she is getting married too! Happy happy!
Sunday, 6:45AM. Ironman went to potty. Funny little man is very much into superheroes nowadays. When he feels like being Ironman, he asks us to wrap a gold ribbon around his hand.
Sunday, 9:04AM. We are late for church! Because Aki insisted that he wears his favorite The Hulk pajamies over his clothes. Thankfully, he let us take of the pajama when we arrived.
Sunday, 9:26AM. “Penge nine hunded toins (hundred coins), fis (please)!” is what Aki just told me.
Sunday, 9:28AM. And this is why I hate attending mass inside a mall! The guy in white is the pasimuno. I hate that the kids keep on running and playing. Interestingly, Aki kept chasing a big kid who was playing with a toy gun. Aki kept saying, “Hey, no bengbeng. Stop it! Bengbeng bad! No bengbeng!” Inasmuch as I was happy to see him standing for what he believes in (or what I made him believe in), I am sure the big kid was pretty annoyed to have a small kid who was very passionate about his beliefs, run after him.
Sunday, 11:02AM. Look what I found in Booksale! The top 1 of the top 100 children’s books!
Check out the complete list
Sunday 12:45PM. My baby can ride! Is he ready for his first bike?
Sunday, 1:09PM. While Ate Dorina and I were shopping, this is what the boys were doing.
Sunday, 1:20PM. The very reason why we went to SM on the first place is to buy a new pan and small casserole. After much deliberation with myself, I decided to get non-non-stick ones. The stainless ones were too thin while the non-sticks were too expensive. I also got a new umbrella and a zip-up closet for my decluttering project.
Sunday, 2:01PM. We bought tickets to hubby’s current favorite sports, Lotto!
Sunday, 3:41PM. My smores are a hit! Why did not I think of making these easy yet so yummy treats before?
Sunday, 6:58PM. After three hours of cleaning out my hanging closet, I was finally done! There is still so much that I want to do for this part of the house. Hopefully, I will find the time and energy to complete the project. Decluterring truly is one of the most therapeutic activities.
Sunday, 7:40PM. My first try at making milk teas is also a success! Thank you BIL for the oolong leaves.
Ordinary weekend, will you be mine tomorrow and on Sunday?
Wishing all of you a boring and uneventful weekend with your love ones!
