Rainy Weekend

It has been raining here since last night and based on the weather forecast for this weekend, we’ll be expecting more rain. It was actually raining hard early this morning and I was a bit apprehensive about having to send the kids to school. But since there aren’t any announcement regarding the suspension of classes, we went through our regular routine and made sure that the kids left for school in time. I just made sure that our eldest left earlier than usual because we are anticipating the traffic that the heavy rains may have caused. Good thing though that the rain has stopped (at least for now).

The kids are actually making plans on what they want to do this weekend (aside form watching basketball or listening to their favorite songs) We may have a movie marathon at home since we also have a couple of movies that we want to see. I may even find some time to catch up on my reading. ( I have been meaning to finish the book Beautiful Creatures before seeing the movie but I haven’t had the time to do so). Good thing we didn’t have any appointment for this weekend and we don’t have to go out and be on the road.

Have a fun and safe weekend!

On Entrance Tests and School Dance

It’s another eventful week for our son because of the many things that he has to attend to at school. As I am writing this post, he is at school, attending his Senior Prom. Just like most seniors, he has been very excited about their prom. He is also happy and satisfied about what he’s wearing (which is exactly what we’re hoping for). He said that his entire senior class is also excited because it will be their last major social gathering at school. I just hope everything went well and that he will enjoy the event. I’m also looking forward to seeing their photos; I’m sure his classmates will be posting their photos on Facebook by tomorrow.

Aside from his prom, he’s also busy preparing for the college entrance exams that he’ll be taking in a few weeks time. We have prepared all the documents that he needs to submit and hopefully by next week, he can have a definite schedule on when he would take his exams at a college that he prefers. I hope that he’ll be able to get into that school because it a well established college known to provide their students with quality education.

By the way, I mentioned in a previous post that our internet connection is acting up. Well, it’s been almost a week and we are still having the same problem. I am now actually using a broadband stick from another internet provider. I just hope that our ISP’s service team will be here tomorrow to fix our connection.

A ‘Pretty Appetite’

I came across the phrase ‘pretty appetite’ as I was reading an article written by a celebrity in yesterday’s paper. It kind of caught my attention because it seemed like a unique way of describing one’s appetite. If one is to ask me to describe my appetite, ‘pretty’ would not be one of them.

So, what makes a ‘pretty appetite’ ? Not sure though. But if I am to guess, and this is based on the article that she wrote, I think it has something to do with the fact that the writer has tried foods/snacks that are not commercially available (except for one, I think), those that are specially made and need to be ordered in advance. She initially was able to try them when they were given to her as gifts. Since then, she has been ordering them regularly and they have been her ‘comfort foods’, those that she would normally eat when she wants to unwind or if she’s having a bad day and would want to feel a bit better. What kind of food is she talking about ? Well, let’s see….there’s the carrot cake, which she says she can’t get enough of, salted caramel ice cream, sugar-coated dark chocolate with hazelnut cream filling, Mexican chips which can be bought only at her hometown and brownie bites. (hungry yet?..lol)

I’m sure that you all have your own comfort foods. For me though, I just stick to those that are available at the grocery store or at my fave fast food so that I can easily buy them whenever I crave for them.

Enough of all this food talk for now, my husband is trying to get my attention because it’s time to prepare our snacks…lol. He’s been working on a miniature house since lunch and he’s definitely hungry. And judging from the way he looks, his appetite is not ‘pretty’.(heheh)

Have a great week everyone !
