So where do I begin with this yet again another comeback? Hmmm...
|One of my fridge magnets|
WORK. What a wonderful blessing it is to have a job (much more to be able to do it from home or anywhere powered by Internet for that matter), and so, I have no right whatsoever to complain. Honestly, there are times when my work makes me sing, "Are you a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare..." I do appreciate deep down in my heart the perks of being able to telecommute, but my goodness, I'm telling you, working from home does not provide me immunity from stress brought on by my job. My husband can definitely attest to that. Hehe! BUT, as always, I'm thankful to God that He has blessed me with this job, and it has been a testament of His faithfulness in our lives, especially during this time that we're waiting for our H-1b/H4 visa to be approved, and Vince has not started on his new work yet. I'm really saddened by the numerous layoffs recently at my work, and that makes me more grateful to be still part of the company. So, whether my job is being a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare, "Either way, I don't wanna wake up from..." ☻
PREGNANCY. I thought the nausea, vomiting and all my first trimester challenges would never come to end, but thank God, I'm over them! It was a great relief when I finally was able to tolerate the usual foods I ate prior to pregnancy. Second trimester has its own quirks too like this ache in my left hip down the butt and upper thigh aggravated by movement and shifting positions, and also, uncontrollable growing belly accompanied with occasional cramps. Right on my 20th week, I started feeling tiny baby movements like small ripples or waves inside my tummy ♥ I also had another ultrasound about a couple of weeks ago, and the second one was much more exciting than the first ultrasound. Besides the fact that our baby has obviously grown bigger and body parts were more recognizable in the second scan, we found out the gender! Okay, so this is where I cut this short. How Vince and I found out the gender of our first baby was an important milestone for us, and so I like to write a separate blog post for that. If we're friends in Facebook, you most likely know already whether I'm having a girl or boy, but I do hope that you still join me in my next post as I reveal my baby's gender to cyberworld. I promise to try my best to make the revelation as fun and exciting as it was for us when we first found out, so please stay tuned!
...and yes, I haven't forgotten that I still need to complete my Hawaii vacation series here in my blog ☻
