Could it be the cold weather? (Excuses, excuses…) There are just too many things happening around me. It’s the second work day of the new year and I feel as if I didn’t have the benefit of two successive long weekends.
Meanwhile, I’m trying to jumpstart my reading (again) which has been on haitus for the last four to six weeks. I finally found the ideal canvas for a craft experiment I have been itching to launch — but have been unable to for lack of time and focus. The only constant are the cards I’ve been sending to Pia. (Reminder to self: mail out this week’s card.)
I want to write about Ate Lian, my friends from law school, the guys from UP Manila — my batchmates from all those years in St. Paul (Pasig then Quezon City.) — many of whom have resurfaced thanks to the wonders of technology. (Are you on Facebook?)
My bed is calling out to me — but I have to prep the coffeemaker for tomorrow’s brew first. It’s going to be a busy day. Beyond work, I need to keep writing and reading and keeping my brain active because sometimes I worry the last eight years have brought them into a state of lethargy. You sort of get the hint when you find yourself putting on socks that you had taken out for the tyke to wear to school. (Angelo and I had a good laugh with that, but I wanted to seriously bop myself in the head for getting myself into that situation.) Twenty minutes to Cinderella time.. let me hit the sack — literally. There’s tomorrow and the day after to write all that I have been meaning to write — if only I can sit down long enough to create the blogpost.
