I woke up to a not so-”bright-sunshiny” day this morning. Apart from the gloomy weather outside, I woke up with a feeling of head heaviness because I wasn’t able to sleep at peace, occasionally getting up and constantly checking on my huffing and puffing laptop in between sleep at dawn. It’s also the reason why I wasn’t able to go online last night. I was supposed to work on a number of assignments at 7 pm last night but apparently, it performed a very slow scan disk check upon boot up that lasted for more than 6 hours until the husband decided to shut it down even the scan disk was not complete. This is quite surprising. I am certain that I shut it down properly earlier prior to my supposedly usage last night. I sort of did a spring cleaning of files in my My Docs folder yesterday morning, but other than that, I didn’t tinker any of the program files or whatsoever that’s why I’m wondering what caused this.
So please “Acerito”, don’t die on me please. You know very much that my online works are so very dependent on you. I thank you for the service you’ve been giving me in the last 2 years but please, don’t retire yet. Don’t make “tampo” on me when I joked on the husband that I want a new laptop for Christmas. That was just a joke, okay? You know very well that we can’t afford a big ticket purchase at this period because of the M Project plus we have other bills to settle next month like my term life insurance semi-annual bill. So please, bear with me for a while. We’ve already scheduled you an appointment with your “doctor” on Sunday to check what’s wrong and to give whatever you need to sustain your life. Pleaseeeee…hang on.Filed under Blogging Life. | Comment (0)
It took me a while before I noticed that my sidebar on the right looks different…some widgets are missing. I remember tinkering it the other day (or was it yesterday morning) when I removed my Adgitize code…so yes, it took me more than 24 hours before I noticed it. But sadly, my poor memory (blame it on the “gallons” of anesthesia) is not helping me because I can’t exactly recall the widgets that I’ve accidentally removed. The feedburner email subscription box, About Me, and MyBloglog..what else?
I have always said that this blog badly needs some redesigning, so I guess, it’s really wanting to have one soon. Let’s see if I’ll get some free time to manage this.Filed under Blogging Life. | Comment (0)
Hay…when can I ever manage my time effectively kaya?
I have mentioned recently that I’ve been blessed with a handful of online works since last week and since then, the more I’ve neglected the tasks that I have put off for so long.
There’s still Asher’s 1st birthday photobook that’s still just half-baked. I totally lost my creative mojos and I think, I have now forgotten how to digiscrap. I even can’t remember to which folder in my external hard disk have I saved the layouts. Asher turned 18 months last September 2 so it’s been half a year since the party and just 6 months to go before his second birthday and no 1st birthday party photobook still…bad!
Then I also initiated two new online projects the other week. Until now, I haven’t progressed to anything because I am too tied with the online tasks that flooded my way.
Asher’s monthly pictures printing also halted. I still have to go through my files to know which batch to upload now on Artscow.
Then there are mommy duties that I have to attend to. I can not just say “No” to Asher when he demands my breast milk at random times of the day. It’s a good thing though that he is now more playful and has become less dependent on me that’s why I can work in our room longer in deep concentration. We’re also lucky to have a doting Yayay Becca who looks after the little one while I work..she’s a blessing to us, really.
I’ve been meaning to give this blog a revamp but obviously, I haven’t changed a thing.
Hay… can I have an extra set of hands or can we add even just a couple of hours in a day to accommodate all these tasks?Filed under Blogging Life., Simply Me | Comment (0)
So many things to do…so little time.
A very overused line and I think it will be more in the days and weeks to come. I am not complaining though because more work means more money. More money means more savings. More savings means the closer we get to that M Project. Yes, M Project…my motivation amidst this overwhelming feeling. Notice how I emphasized the M Project and didn’t use “more savings means more shopping money” like the way I used to.
The husband must be proud of the reformed me. Haha!Filed under Blogging Life., Simply Me | Comment (0)
It’s 9:26 pm and here I am still busy working. Wanting to lie down already and retire the night but I have to stay up and wait for the husband who will be coming home late because of a company event that he has to attend. If I doze off now, I might not wake up to his knock later and he might sleep outside of the “kulambo”..well, literally, outside of the house. So there, I might as well make use of time now while I wait for him. My throat’s kinda sore and seemingly spells impending cough and colds, but I’m praying it won’t. I have loaded myself already with Vitamin C, drank and also gargled a lot of water moments ago. I hope those will help. M.U.S.T. N.O.T. get sick, for the kids’ sake.
Anyways, work is promising since yesterday. And I have to give myself a pat on the back for being able to overcome procrastination. It really feels great and rewarding when you’re dedicated and dead set to achieve something and you’re seeing your progress right away…although little by little..but at least, you’re moving and motivated more. Isn’t that great?Filed under Blogging Life. | Comment (0)
