Late winter posting

Many things happened since my last posting....

I started a Master degree online but after 3 days I decided to withdraw because it was not as flexible as I thought it would be.   I am a college dropout now...

Benji started going to daycare 6 hours a day for four days a week.  It went better than we thought.  He cried the second day but he did well overall  considering it's his first daycare experience ever.

I still have  good days and bad days at work.  I increased my hours and almost full-time now.   I am holding on to this demanding and at times frustrating  job because I am tired of job hopping...  And I love my patients.

My husband and I are doing well right now.  I understand that marriage is not easy and we have to be patient with each other.

My mother... well lots of things happened to her too.  I'll post next time...

The most recent movie that I love is Like Crazy.  Here's the trailer...
I love it because it vividly portrays young love and how distance and time changed these lovers and in the end eroded the closeness and familiarity.  It stays with me for quite a while.  I'm a sucker for sad but realistic movies.  The lead actors are adorable.  Jennifer Lawrence who won this year Oscar's Best Actress played a supporting role here.  Okay, it reminds me of my real life romance (with my husband) without the distance and other lovers, just the drama, haha.

Anyway, I hope to post more frequently.  I am planning to enroll in English Composition class this summer to improve my writing.  Wish me luck!

Happy to know that Benji started to go to the daycare and that you will have the time for yourself.

Goodluck for being a full time worker and am sure you'll be able to overcome everything ;) ! And to your English composition course !

Most importantly, really glad that things worked out for you and your husband. I agree, marriage is not easy specially we have two cultures to consider. Every marriage/relationship needs time, patience, communication, compromise and care for each other to keep the relationship balance and stronger.

It is good to hear that things are going better.

When we first started taking our eldest daughter to daycare at 3 months old, she didn't cry. That came on sporadically as she got older between 1 and 3 years of age. It just depended on the day. Eventually she loved it do much, that she would cry when I showed up early to take her home. You just can't win all the time with kids!

I've always wanted to take online courses just to expand my knowledge but haven't yet been able to fit it into my schedule. I figure that perhaps when the youngest is off at school and if I am not working another nine to five type job, perhaps I finally will be able too.
