Just one trick or treating for Sandy this year. Boo-hu. She already had one in school but we had to leave early because most of the kids were coughing and sneezing. There’s another trick or treating event here in our place but I need to leave around five in the afternoon so I can’t take her myself. I don’t want her to be just with her yaya, poor thing. Luckily, her Papa’s office is having a Halloween party so I will just drop her later on my way to Ortigas. I wonder how my two babies will cope without me? I can’t believe I have five hours of ME time tonight. I’m so excited that I can’t focus on my research for term life insurance.

It’s already Thursday but I still would like to do this today.
Got this from Mich
1. My other blog was hacked but I was able to restore it this morning
2. I am now doing better at my new job. Still very swamped but I’m now good at time management.
3. Boracay Trip in six days
4. Which means shopping trip this weekend for a new suit, boardshorts and other beach paraphernalia
5. My client coming home in November and bringing my new laptop with him
6. Losing weight because of too much work. Guess elliptical is out of the picture. For now.
7. Dinner with my girlfriends tomorrow night. I have a life, yay!
8. Downloaded new ebooks last week. I have enough to last until December.
9. Sandy has been very behaved for the last five days so I get to finish a lot of stuff at work.
10. Aggie sending me photos of GY.
Sandy as Ms. India from their United Nations programme last week.
We didn’t get to try the costume until it was only an hour before the event. Thank God it was a perfect fit and that we were able to convince her to put on the veil.
… or not. I.AM.SO.STRESSED. And I’m not even done with work. However, I’m going to take a break tonight and join The Husband for a short night out with some of his cousins. It’s a family obligation that I’m very happy to do. God knows my body (and mind) could use a drink. When I get back, hoping that Sandy is already asleep, you can bet that I’ll continue to work, depending on how many I’ve had to drink.
Saturday – work in the morning. Shopping for Sandy’s gown. Work again when we get back.
Sunday – out of town wedding. Won’t be back till Monday. I’ll bring my laptop so I can work at the hotel.
I should be celebrating the weekend. We rarely have road trips but at this moment, all I want to do is sleep beside Sandy. I just miss her so much. Too bad she has a cold so she can’t come with us tonight.
Here are the photos from the recent MBAP Christmas/Baby Shower Party! The party was held at Jane’s mansion . The play area helped a lot in keeping the keeps entertained so the parents can eat in peace and gossip with each other. I made another post about the MBAP Party here so I’ll just post the highlights of the party and the photos (taken by The Husband).

I’m done resizing the photos, finally! Sadly, I ran out of time so I won’ be posting them until tomorrow Need to work first and pay the bills you know.
Just a preview for now.
Let’s start with the Twitter EB party first. I’m still waiting for photos from Alpha but I’ll post the ones from Kathy here.
I went to Citadel Inn first without Sandy and The Husband so the little one can nap. Before I left, I showed The Husband the bags that we needed to bring and his first reaction was “What? Lahat to????”. This is probably the reason why he didn’t bring our camera. To punish me LOL. Nah, if you saw what I’ve packed, you’d forget about the cam too.

SOON. I have plenty of things that I will be blogging about in the next few days.
1. Sandy’s U.N. day
2. Twitter Party
3. MBAP Party
Make sure you visit again!
Plenty of things to be thankful for this Friday.
Someone is really kicking ass at work. Namely me. I realized that I can be very productive if I wake up at 6AM. My boss “gave” me a pat on the back and the one I’m working with my project was very impressed at how fast I am. Honestly, the work is pretty simple. It’s the process of finding files and updating that was really a problem.
United Nations program in Sandy’s school. Sandy came as Ms. India, wearing a custom made dress by my mom, veil and bindi. At first she was pretty psyched to wear a different gown. But after a couple of minutes in school, she threw tantrums and cried because she wanted to be with mommy. When it was time for her to perform, she stood on the stage and did her part. She wasn’t smiling of course but at least, she was on stage unlike the other two kids from her class who were bawling their eyes out. After eating time, (there were plenty of food btw) all the kids including Sandy were so high with sugar. She was laughing and dancing nonstop. So I hope next time they’ll feed the kids first before doing the program.
Party! Parteh! And more parties! The much awaited MBAP Christmas Party at Jane’s mansion will be held this Sunday. And on Saturday, it’s going to be the first Twitter Party. I hope Alpha can make it this time LOL. So next week, expect my blogs to be filled with photos and party stories.
Tomorrow is United Nation’s Day. Sandy and her classmates have been practicing for weeks and I can’t wait to see them perform their dance. She’s Ms. India so I asked my mom to create a costume for her, with matching shawl. It’s not yet done though! My mom will bring it here tomorrow morning hoping that it will fit. Then The Husband’s co-worker gave her a bindi for her forehead. I can already imagine how adorable she’d look. I had trouble finding a flag for India so I just searched the net and re-created one.
Today, she had rice for her baon because they need to practice for three hours. I really can’t wait. Stage mommy talaga. I’ve been helping her at home with the song and dance. I noticed that when she gets tired of all the dance steps, she makes up new ones. I hope she won’t do this tomorrow! Each student will bring food from their country. I was expecting Indian food for Sandy but her diary said bring a box of pizza. Isn’t that supposed to be from Italy? LOL. Anyway, at least it’s easy.
So till tomorrow then! I’d take plenty of photos promise!
