We quarrel every week. And I’m getting tired of it already. Is it too much to demand for time and communication? I don’t think so because it’s what normal couples do, right? They talk and send SMS to each other especially if they don’t get to spend more time with each other that often anymore.
Sigh. This is one of the lows of having a relationship with a kid, I guess. I don’t know if I still have enough patience for this. I’m getting tired already. :(
Sorry for the sad post. I just need to vent this out.
Happy Holidays, though...

I had some issues with my life this past couple of days. It did not come to the point of me turning into alcohol or cigarettes, though. I never liked liquors and never turned to drugs anyway whenever I have problems, so there won’t be any chance that I’d end up in santa barbara drug alcohol rehab treatment center. When I feel sad, I may separate myself to the world so I can think. And in just a day or two, I’d be able to come back to my senses. Most of the time, in my solitude, I’ll realize that I never will be alone because I have my friends and family and a great God to help me in any adversities.
It’s just sad because sometimes I disappoint some people and might even hurt most of them but since they are real friends, they always forgive me.
I hope with my personal issues lately, I can patch things up with them.

It’s weekend once again! My favorite days of the week! :D
This weekend is extra special because it’s our Church’s Thanksgiving Day. It’s one of the annual events that all of us, members of the Church, look forward to.
Another year in our lives has passed by. A lot may have happened, be it good or bad, we still offer our thanks to our Lord, Almighty who gave us another year of life.
There are too much to be thankful for, personally. Words are just not enough to give to our Father in Heaven. That’s why, as much as I can, I spend my time doing my Church obligations. I still feel it’s not enough but I hope I was able to give glory and honor to Him.
Thank you, Dear Lord, for everything, especially for keeping me alive. You are indeed worthy to be praised!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the members of Iglesia Ni Cristo all over the world!

I want one of this! LOL!
One of my colleagues brought this poor life-size Teddy bear at the office to add to the team's Christmas decor. When I don't have a lot to do at work or wanted to get myself relieved from stress, I just give this Big Teddy a squeeze and a hug. And make fun with my office mates! Sometimes I keep hoping that Christmas won't be over so that Teddy and I can spend more time together. :D
How I wish someone will give me a teddy as big as this someday! :D
Happy Friday everyone!

One of the shows in BIO Channel that I recently get fond of watching is Storage Wars. Up until now, it still amazes me that they were able to put up a show about "wars" on storage units. Not exactly the bloody "war". It's about guys who basically bid over auctioned storage units.
The bidders in the show are: Barry (the collector), Dave (the pro), Darrell (the gambler) and Jarrod & Brandi (the newbies). They bid on a unit which they are at first not allowed to get in. They are given a 5-minute look at the storage unit from the doorway and wonder if the unit has a potential of having hidden treasures. They must have good eyes to win a jackpot from one of those units.
I’ve watched series of episodes already and got surprised several times on how each of them get lucky and how some of them get unfortunate. It’s like gambling, you know. It’s even amazing when one of them finds something that I thought don’t have value but, voila! The price of the treasure, when got sold out to collectors, was more than what they have bargained for the unit.
There was even an instance that Darrell the Gambler was able to find valuable silver dollar coins. He must have a morgan dollar price guide to know in just one glance that those coins are of high value.
These guys are funny in a lot of ways. Their differences make the show even more fun and exciting to watch.

My vacation leave for tonight was approved by my manager! I’m so glad that I don’t encounter any problems whenever I ask for extra day off. My boss said as long as I file my vacation leaves ahead of time and that no one had gotten the slot yet and I won’t be doing it too often, I can go on leave especially when it’s really important.
I’ll be out of the office tonight because the kids at Church are going to hold their Year-End Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’m one of those who’s going to help out with the activity. The kids are going to get a lot of goodies tomorrow! I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a day filled with fun for them.
I love long weekends. I used to have 3 days off at Convergys which is my previous employer. But I have to be at work, talking to upset people for 11 hours in 4 days a week. It was exhausting. My schedule right now here at Emerson is fair enough for me. I have normal weekends although I still work at night. My job is not anymore as stressful, anyway.
It’s Friday! Let's take care and enjoy the weekend ahead!
