Well, so what co-relations do preschool and fever have? I’ve been told way before I decided to send Junior to school that kids tends to fall sick A LOT when they are in school. On the flip side, their immune system gets strengthened and will be a lot less prone to falling sick when they are older. What an irony right?
Just this week I posted on Instagram (@adesays) about how weekends for me is all about exploring the outdoors and running about and that short is now my go to outfit for the weekends. What then work great with shorts would be some neat nice tank/blouse which I really have a lack for.
I am a worrywart and I was never good with dealing with separation anxiety. That happened when my maternity leave ended and I had to leave Junior to go back to work and recently when we had to get Junior ready for school.
It is unlike me to post something on this blog that is beauty related. However, recently I’ve caught on some beauty bug and have been trying out some new products. Some in the form of samples and some through recommendations. There were some hits and misses but overall I’ve had fun experimenting and thought it’ll be fun to share some of my newest faves. So much so that I can’t stop raving about them!
It has been almost 3 weeks since the bub started N1 and boy did I have the jitters. Yes, you read me correctly, I was the one with the school jitters. Now, let me explain.
Happy New Year Friends!
It took me 10 days to get my writing mojo back from all the mayhem that comes along with the start of a brand new year. Specifically, the little one started school so boy did we have a lot of adjustments to do! Besides that, starting a new year also meant time for me to chart out how I think I want my year to be and be intentional about it. I know, life/things never exactly goes the way I envisioned it to be at times but I like doing this kind of planning. Somehow it makes me feel purposeful and having something to look forward or work hard towards.
As the year draws to a close, I spent some time in reflecting and appreciating my year. So much has happened in 2016 amid a very fast paced year, I can finally slow down to catch my breath. I had a theme (or resolution) for 2016, which was Organize. I wanted to be more organized in my day-to day and stay abreast (or afloat) among all the things that are happening at once. Looking back, while I may not have achieve it at 100%, I give myself a rating of 8/10. More can be done (oh those finances), but I think I did pretty well for the year (if I say so myself).
With just 4 days away from Christmas, it has been fairly busy in our household. The Christmas tree with new fairy lights are up, presents bought and wrapped (yippie!) and Christmas menu all set! However, I’m still trying to get some Christmas sewing done, tasks at the office cleared before the year ends and tons of little things here and there.
There are days where I feel like my soul has left the body and all I’m doing is on auto-pilot. I get tired and unmotivated in general. And when I hit such rut, I know I am uninspired. Sometimes I feel like my creative mojo has left me and leaving me beaten and sad. Well, it does happens and happens to all of us from time to time, so it’s all about knowing when and how we should pick ourselves up and uplift our mood.
