Our daughter has ditched us.  This is the longest we've been apart.  The last time was when I had dengue and even though I was in the hospital, at least I knew she was in the same country.

We spoke via Face Time yesterday and the first thing she said was, "I miss you, Mom...".  I miss you too Achie.  The house is so quiet without you.  And just like how I tell you how to count days, 2 more sleeps until I see you again.  Hope you're enjoying over there, right now, I just have to watch your videos and wait like a nagging girlfriend on my phone that you call/text me for updates.

See you soon!


So I'm down to basically my last few weeks.  I'm holding my breath to stop gaining weight, unfortunately, there is nothing I can do but embrace it (Good excuse?  Pwede na...).  I'm just hoping losing weight would be as easy as before.  Scratch that, I don't need it to be easy, it can be tough for all I care, BUT I just want to get my waist back.  Erase all my whining and pining before, I am okay with my body pre-pregnancy.

Before I get sliced in half, yes, it's a CS and we don't have any other option, I told Karl, I had this working list of food I NEEDED to eat.  Yes, NEED not WANT.  Brat in the house.  I have already eaten some of them but I wouldn't mind going back.  I do have 3 more weeks left...  Sharing you some of the things I've eaten so far:

1. Ukkokei Ramen's Tantanmien- It looks so greasy, but it's so greasy it's good :)  They only serve 20 bowls during dinner.  They don't serve this during lunch because it takes THAT long to make the broth.  It's an acquired taste.  It has a nutty spicy after taste, but after this, Miso Butter Corn has been overthrown!  Be warned about the crazy owner and they're not known for their customer service.  It's all business when you're there!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is just around the corner. Mia won't be here for most of the celebrations but I'm slightly relieved (Bad mother!) since I get to rest a little before baby no.2 pops out(Nickname still undecided!).

Enchanted Kingdom

Waiting in line for the Wheel of Fate (cheesy name I know!)

It has been over 10 years, maybe even 15 since the last time I have been here. Even though Mia has been to different Disneys, Sea World, Universal Studios etc., I still want her to experience what's here in the Philippines. Even though I wasn't in the best condition, I decided to join my teammates and let Mia experience Enchanted Kingdom. Since our group was big, we were able to take advantage of discounts.

Guys, welcome the newest addition to our family. She's not really out yet but with all the rumbling my tummy is experiencing, I think she wants to meet all of you.

I actually decided not to do a 4D ultrasound because our weekends were always so tight usually because of Mia's schedule. Eventually I realized my kids should have equal rights. Mia never had her 4D because she didn't want to show her face, but I did go for one so the intention was there.

We still haven't decided on a nickname and it's kinda funny how I'm stressing out over it more than her real name. Her real name goes on paper and her nickname can get changed any time. Silly pregnancy hormones! Don't ask me how much I weigh because I feel like a whale slash cow slash insert something heavy.

I'm trying to take it easy but 'free' and 'lazy' weekends doesn't seem to be in my dictionary. Oh well, 4 more weeks and I'm off to the chopping block! Yes, I just called it that.
