I had thought that getting dressed today and being all girl would help lift my spirits up some. The compliments have made me smile, people think I look nice today. Accessories, clothes (except shoes), all made in the Philippines! But it’s just one of those days when even if everything is going okay, I just don’t feel okay.
There’s this nagging feeling inside me. I don’t know yet when Mom can join me again — she is waiting to see another set of doctors. Alan is still away in San Francisco which, by itself, is a major bummer already. Angel, thankfully, has been manageable during the commute, so I’m not really complaining.
Sometimes you just find yourself constantly losing your train of thought — even when nothing or no one is trying to distract you. I cannot even start to think about dinner tonight — then I remember that I put down the steak to thaw in the fridge. It’ll probably be just me and my mother-in-law eating anyway. The steak has a double purpose because anything leftover will make for a meal for Angel the next day. I boil it as we would do nilaga and add some vegetables. He loves it!
Fortunately the boss is leaving for another trip tomorrow. So I don’t really have to stress out bigtime. (I just realized I don’t see him until next month!) This is one boss who makes me feel bad that I don’t see enough of him. The type of boss you wouldn’t mind having around a lot. I kept going back and forth with his travel arrangements and I am usually not this much of a scatter-brain. At least the day is done.
