The Sunday Currently | 2

Reading
I am currently reading two books at the same time for a change: Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll; and The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. I’ve been wanting to read Through the Looking Glass for a while now so I decided to start from the beginning before going straight to it. Also, I have throughly enjoyed Sáenz’s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe that I decided to give him another try.

Writing
More in general. I made myself an Excel blog organization sheet which caters to what I need and it has been working so far. I stopped beating myself up about not being to post regularly and it helped a lot. None of the work I need to do is scheduled, but I feel more motivated.

Listening
James Graham’s VIRAL.

Smelling
Nothing. First week of fall and I might be catching a cold.

Wishing
I am currently wishing for a healthy baby number 2. We saw her the other day during our ultrasound appointment and it’s surreal that once again I’m growing a human being.

Hoping
World Peace.

Wearing
I have this pyjama set I got last Christmas which has “Trophy Wife” written on it. It easily became only of my favourites as it has a matching set with my daughter’s which says “Trophy Child”. My husband also has a pair of boxers which says “Trophy Husband” on it.

Loving
Chocolate covered almonds.

Needing
More patience. I’m going to have two little adorable kids soon, and I need to be more patient with them and remember they don’t just come out knowing what they’re supposed to do. That’s what parents and other family members are here for: to help them grow up a good person.

Feeling
Nostalgia has hit me hard for the past few weeks. In 2 weeks, we we attended two weddings and I started reminiscing of when my husband and I got married. It wasn’t as fancy. We got married in a hotel penthouse room paid for by aunt and uncle as a wedding present surrounded by our friends and family. Since then, it’s been one of the happiest days of my life.

The Sunday Currently | 1

sunday currently 1

Here is an attempt at something. I’ve come across The Sunday Currently over on Carina’s site and I thought I could give it a try. Trying doesn’t hurt… Sometimes… Right?

Reading
I’m currently reading John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids. My husband recommended it to me saying it’s a good read. It’s one of those stories which pisses you off yet you can’t put it down at the same time. You have no idea how many times I wanted to throw this book across the room to a wall to help make me feel better.

Writing
NOTHING. Absolutely nothing.

Listening 
My daughter and I have been playing Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do since it came out.

Smelling
Today, it’s the lingering smell of Lucky Me Pancit Canton seasoning in the air. I had it for breakfast. I miss Filipino food most days.

Wishing
More energy. I have been feeling extremely exhausted the past few weeks.

Hoping
I get everything I needed to do done in such short time. Both at home, and work.

Wearing
The most comfortable outfit I own: an oversized red sweater, and my husband’s old college sweatpants. Sundays = comfort over style. Unless we need to go out, or if I have to work.

Loving
Loving how close we are to fall season.

Needing
I need more time to myself. Yes that does sound a bit selfish. However, I believe giving myself enough attention will help me be a better mom, and a better employee. I need to learn how to balance everything in my life.

Feeling
I’m feeling nervous and excited. My baby girl will start pre-school in 2 weeks. Part of me is happy that she get to start a different chapter in her life, while another part of me is a bit sad at the fact my baby is growing up so fast.
