L for laagan (wanderer)

My first entry for HULAGWAY SA KINABUHI.
L  for  laagan (wanderer)

Ang lingaw sa mga laagan... magpahulagway!
The power of the six J's...

Joanne (My ate...great copy of meh!), Julianne (the ever charming ate), 
Jesse (my loving and caring hubby), Joaquim (funny but brave kuya), 
Jennifer (proud mama) and Jillianne (my gutsy girl).

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, 
not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. 
You will regret time not spent with a family, a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.

Back for Good

       I’m back! After the busy days - work, graduation, health issues, so on and so forth… I’m finally back. So many things had happened to share and do! Ideas are rushing on my mind on what to do first…
First thing, my realization - priorities must be put into consideration. I always remind myself on having a list of accomplished task for the day. Keeping myself busy! It’s doing better along the way but later, I found out that I didn’t listen to what my body really needs.
Rest!  I mean literally resting. As a working mom with four energetic children, I begin my day with the chores at home which requires to use our legs and feet then proceed to work with so much load to carry (as in literally heavy things such as my laptop, some things needed in school, extra bag for my kid’s stuff and my shoulder bag for my personal belongings). Funny though, I always carry them almost everyday! No time for rest during noon break since we are having the supervised lunch with the school children. After dismissal, I prepare my kids to go home immediately so I can go to my tutorial session in a nearby residence just fifteen-minute ride from our school. At most seven or eight in the evening, I may run to go to the grocery, at times buy something for my children’s need in school, most of the time spent on assisting my kids in doing their assignments or have some time playing badminton with my friends. My day ends at most 11 o’clock in the evening or 1 o’clock dawn. Weekends are spent for more school work, family bonding, sleeping, church and most especially a date with my hubby. In the middle of the school year, I got some extra load as a teacher in some extracurricular activities and goes until the end of the school year since I am handling sixth grade (graduating class). My daily routine goes like these over and over for more than seven years now.
Now I know why I got all the body pains I’ve been feeling nowadays, especially my legs and my feet. Over used as what the doctor says. It might be in line of my work because of prolonged sitting or standing or might be genetically inherited. Well still finding some answers. At a thought of it, what I have mentioned above were already the answers… LOL!
Oh how I wish to write my Personal Life Statement this year. In this way, I’ll be able to focus on important and bigger responsibilities, including resting! Furthermore, I also need to find ways to fill in blogging on my daily routine or might sacrifice tutorial session with other kids so I can focus more on my children’s need. What do you think?
 Anyway, I have still weeks to think on these matters and do some more posting before the start of classes. Work load may be full this June but I hope I won’t forget sharing something here. (I bet I’ll be able to sleep at dawn!)
