Well, its been a while since I updated this blog. I've been spending my time lately writing. Yes, I do write now for a living. It was a good opportunity that was presented to me by my friend who does it to. It's a work from home job which is another advantage since I can be with the kids the whole day. The only downside of working from home is I am having a hard time writing for the kids are also demanding my time so is the chores that has to be done so I am always rushing to beat the deadlines and for 3 days straight I have not met it. But I guess I would just have to be more focused on doing this writing gig and practice effective time management so that I can achieve that so-called "work-life balance".
A few days ago, I have been stressing over the fact that my yaya will be leaving us soon and I have yet to find a replacement for her. We almost had one. She stayed with us for 1 night then decided that she could not do the job and left which is good too because I personally thought that she really could not. But I'm over it now because we already have one. Well, actually, she isn't here yet because she is currently my mom's helper and they'll be coming over 2 weeks from now. I've known her already because she was already helping out in our house in Davao when we were still there. So there, one less concern to worry about.
I've been doing some cooking lately. Last night, I did MarketManila's Salt and Pepper Squid. It's really easy to make for it requires just a few ingredients and great tasting too. For lunch today, I made beer battered fish fillet with fries. I got the recipe from this site and I think its a keeper for my husband loved it. I had some substantial batter left after doing the fish but unfortunately, I ran out of white onions to do some onion rings. Well, maybe next time.
