My Memorial Day went like any other Sunday, except that it was a Monday. After breakfast, we went to the mall, had lunch and then got a few things here and there and we were home by 7PM.
I picked up a ton of cards at TARGET. (Not exactly your regular place for mushy lines but I was tired of the usual Hallmark selection.) Birthdays, Father’s Day — I didn’t realize I had that many on my list. I have always been one to send a greeting — I am sure my absence in Manila has markedly affected Hallmark sales in National Bookstore.. (yeah right.. LOL) That’s the demonstrative part of me — I have always been known to speak my heart and mind, even if I sometimes ended up putting my foot in my mouth. I suddenly realized as I was writing this post that I need to pick up at least three more cards.. okay, I’m going to Hallmark for that one. LOL
The asthma has gotten way better — I am hardly coughing. My cold is very thin now, but I still feel a congestion in my head. It’s just so nice that my health cooperated when I needed it, even if there were times I felt like I was ready to faint in the midst of watching Big Bird and Elmo dancing onstage. (Anything for my boy..) It’s getting really warm in New York, and barring any more rainfall, we’re all set for summer!
It’s going to be a short week with the boss away so I’m all set. Angel’s been confirmed for back up childcare all week so Alan and I need not worry about someone having to work from home on any given day.
I feel blessed. I have my boys, my family back home, and I’m looking forward to another week doing work I actually look forward to as my weekend ends. (Can you see the smile on my face?)
