Wednesday’s Calm, Lucky Nine

Day Nine.

I had a calm and relaxing Wednesday. After doing my responsibilities in the morning, I was able to sit down and enjoy lunch and have a little nap afterwards. I wasn’t planning to sleep, but, I was laying down while reading a pocketbook and after a while I dozed off and slumbered to Lalalandia. But, I got to finish the book, too. When I woke up, I still had time to spare before working again, so I used it to read again. It has been a year, I think, since I last read a PHR novel. Gosh, how I missed those days that I get to read more than three PHR novels in a day. So, it was really refreshing to be able to finish one today. I miss collecting pocketbooks, too. Oh well, it has to wait. I’d probably buy a lot of books when I go back to the PH. It’s cheaper there.

Then, today, I received my first eBay purchase. So, glad to finally have it. It took 18 days for it to arrive. But, that’s fine considering the distance it has to travel. So, I’m waiting for the other stuff to arrive. I have two eBay purchases. The second one actually arrived first. Geez. It sounds like I made it confusing. Hahaha. But, yeah, I am a happy girl with my happy top.

I cooked dinner, too. I made Chicken with Sweet and Sour Sauce. I really thought though that I won’t be doing any cooking this week because I’m supposed to cook Tuesday and Thursday. But, anyway, we have to do our part, our share. So, it’s cool. And thinking or reading or writing about food makes me hungry. I’m hungry. Gotta check the kitchen after writing this.

I also got a copy of House of Hades. Been waiting for this for a long time. It’s really awesome to have reliable friends.

I thought of watching the first episode of Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka. In one scene, it showed the lead character seated by the window. I remembered reading a meme, I think, about how almost always all the lead characters in a story are seated beside the window. I realized, yeah, they should be seated near the window so they can easily see if there are any commotions outside that needs their attention and see if there’s a need for them to sneak out from class. Or just be pulled out from the window. 😀

Okay, generally, I had a calm and relaxing Wednesday, but, Charlie – the dog, never fails to give me adrenaline rush and irritation at the same time. We were almost home when our neighbor brought out their dog and we had to meet them. I think Charlie and Aiko are friends, but in a doggy way, so it drives me crazy when they want to greet each other ’cause they have to lunge at each other. Pisses me off big time. Totally gets under my skin. But, then, I had to think about the rest of the day and it was fine. So, all is well.

Testy Tuesday

Day Eight.

I was still a bit anxious when I woke up. But, everything went well in the morning. But, in the afternoon, well, around 5PM maybe, things became difficult. My patience was really tested. I had to summon all the patience I can get. I’m just glad there is someone that reminds me that I can make it through. Na kaya ko ito. I’m doing my best to let my otaku spirit out. It is after all my “never give up” spirit. But, things could sometimes really get into your nerves and piss you off big time. Like today.

I had to walk the dog. I’ve been doing it since… I couldn’t even remember. Must have been a long time already. But, since the incident last September 28, I’ve been paranoid when walking the dog. So, earlier, he saw a hare. He wanted to run off after it. I really had to stand my ground, but with bended knees spread apart for better balance, to stop him from doing so. I don’t wanna hurt him. But, I really had to pull his leash so he won’t run away. It’ll be another worry for me if he runs away. Di pu-pwede ‘yon. So, I really had to shout, too, and with instinct, I had a flurry of swear words coming out from my mouth. And I’ve been trying to stop from saying bad words. But, he just brings out the worst in me. So, while fuming in anger, I thought that feeling stressed out and irritated every time I walk him will do me no good. It totally affects my health. Makes me worry about my cardiovascular system… and mental health. It’s no fun to play tug-of-war with a dog almost your size but double your strength. It just isn’t.

I thought that was the end of my lemons for today. Until, I spoke with a friend. She, too, can bring out the hideous monster in me. I had to get away to get a breath of fresh air or I’d go to sleep with a bad day. So, I stopped chatting with her and concentrated on chatting with those that actually made me feel better. Not that I don’t like talking to her. But, I just can’t handle how our conversation today is sucking the life out of me.

On a positive note, all the manga/anime that I keep myself updated were up to par. Didn’t bring me down. Inspired me. Regaled me. Entertained me. I also had, what seemed to become a weekly routine, a healthy discussion with LA about Bleach’s latest chapter. It’s really awesome when after reading or watching something you can discuss your points of view with someone who can relate to what you just have read or watched. All is well.

Dear Diary

Nang minsang magmuni-muni ako, naisip kong pwede nga akong magblog everyday. Di naman kailangan na mahaba ang isusulat. I thought of making my blog a sort of a daily diary. I even thought it funny that I would start it at the last quarter of the year. Kamuntik na namang di matuloy, i was on the verge of falling in to “bukas na lang“. But I got a grip of myself. Told myself that if I don’t do it now, I might not ever. Baka mauwi ako lagi sa “bukas na lang”. Bad idea.

So, ayun, I had a long day. I started 6.45AM, I ended around 9.30 or 10PM maybe. I had to manage the house, do the dishes, do the laundry, train Victor and assist him with biking, and walk Charlie. Charlie is the most difficult of all. Since the incident last Friday, kung saan nasugatan ang kamay ko, I am acting really paranoid when walking Charlie. Lingon ng lingon and really pushing my pandinig to hear even the slightest movement around. I had to be alert in sensing other dog in the vicinity. I am so wary of having other dogs around when walking him. No, I am actually wary of anything that could get his interest and make him run after it. It’s not easy to walk a dog almost my size… or maybe heavier than me. It drives me crazy when Charlie runs after something. I think the next time he does, I might get a cardiac arrest even though I have no problem with my cardiovascular system.

Ayun, inaantok na talaga ako. I’ll just post another entry tomorrow. 🙂
