How often do you publish your articles? When I started here on read.cash almost a year and a half ago, I was always publishing everyday except when I had migraine attacks as it was unbearable for me to look at the screen even if the level of it's brightness was already low. My topics were mostly about my life and the challenges that I have had. Being able to express my feeling, thoughts and opinions in writing had helped me feel good about myself. This has been my outlet for whatever it is that was on my mind and heart. However, lately, I have noticed that I have been publishing articles every other day. I feel like I have already shared mostly everything and anything about my life. Am I running out of topics and stories to tell? Probably yes. But I will still try my best to publish a lot more. Recently, I have already published over 500 articles. Hooray! So you can just imagine that I have already squeezed out every juice on my brain cells. LOL.
For today, I will just blog about what I have been up to yesterday and today aside from watching Korean drama. LOL. Yesterday, I was a little busy day for me. I bathed our dogs. Although I noticed that Doggie has been shedding a lot of fur and not like the usual shedding when I bathed them. I am thinking that this is probably because of the weather as it has been really hot. I will observe him more before I will bring him to the veterinary clinic. After bathing our dogs, I cleaned our garage and some of the pathways. Rested for a few minutes before I took a bath. Then I made cooked the beef for nachos and made some dips. I was planning to serve them today as pica-pica when we are going to talk about a lot of things. However, I was not able to serve the nachos today as we were so full from our lunch then we decided to eat the leftover food for dinner and order some pizzas in case the food was not enough.
Not sure if I have mentioned this already before but my cousin from Singapore is now having her short vacation here in the Philippines. I feel like a lot of overseas workerd from Singapore took a leave because even my college friend also went home a couple of days ago. She will be seeing some of our college friends for dinner but I could not make it because I have already reserved this day for my family.
It was late 2019 when we last saw each other and we all know what happened come 2020. We did talked about a lot of things although this time we skipped politics and current events. 4 years we did talked about politics, showbiz and other current events that it was the first time my dad said that he enjoyed our talks. I bet that it would have been great if my late uncle, my dad's brother, was here. He is the one that is closest to my dad and we always get to see their family on every ocassion ever since I was a kid particularly because they were residing here in Quezon City unlike our other relatives who is in Zamboanga City. But because I wanted this day to be a little memorable, I messaged my cousin who is in Zamboanga and I asked her if we can do a video call. Luckily, we got to do it when she got home from work. We even got surprised by her news. The youngest amongst us cousins is now expecting. I was feeling mixed emotions. Of course I was happy for her but I felt sad because she will now have her own offspring although she is not yet married but still I kind of envied her. We are only 7, 5 of my cousins are married and 5 of them are now married. On my mother's side, we are 13 cousins. 11 are already married but 3 does not have any kids yet and of course I am included in not married and no kids. Argh! I am already nearing my 40s and I am not sure if I will still be able to conceive but I am still wishing, hoping and praying for both. I am ok if it does not happen.
It was nice to see our relatives in Zamboanga. They may not be complete as it was only my uncle, my aunt and their youngest daughter but it was good enough to complete our family gathering even virtually. We also tried calling my aunt in US but it was only her answering machine so we just left some messages. I hope that we can all bond together soon including our cousins and aunt living in other countries. It was really nice to spend time with the whole family as we laughed a lot and we were able to catch up. I can see how my dad was so happy talking to my cousin as he answers every questions that was asked of him. That even until dinner time, we still had a lot of stories to tell.
Today's event had some surprising revelations for me to remember this very day.
