Blogging at 10PM on a Monday night

I can’t believe it’s 10PM and I am dead tired.  I couldn’t even bear to stand in the kitchen while cutting up the chicken and asparagus for Angel’s meal — I had to sit down and cut it while seated. 

Monday at work wasn’t really chaotic — it’s just having to deal the usual household chores tonight overwhelmed me. 

Dinner was rather simple — more of last night’s Sinigang na Baka, I recycled some of the Arroz a la Cubana into ground beef quesadillas, and Alan had his Jalapeno corned beef courtesy of Purefoods.  Everyone was happy.  I don’t really stock up on Angel’s food because I’d rather have him eat fresh food as often as I can manage it, so tonight, I had to take care of tomorrow and possibly the following day’s lunch.

He’s in daycare one last week.  My Mom is booked on a flight arriving this Saturday weekend.  We would’ve planned a trip out of town for the long weekend but we’re now thinking of just doing a day trip or at most an overnight trip to Sesame Place.  Meanwhile, I’ve been finalizing my bilins which really aren’t much considering I just came from Manila myself.  It will be such a relief to have Mommy here again.  Finally!  Plus there’s the added perk of her occasional cooking — I don’t want to burden her too much with cooking here because it’s enough that she takes care of her apo, but from time to time, she indulges a special request for some dish or other.

I guess now Alan and I can start going out again as we used to — and start accepting those invitations for night outs from friends again.  And we can go on our usual weekly movie or dinner date beginning next week.  Not that we would mind giving that up again to be with the little tyke.  Almost back to normal.. just counting the days.
