The kids are off with my parents again on a short out of town trip. They'll be back later today but of course my usual reaction of gut wrenching fear is kicking up again and I have been terribly distracted today. I've called my dad twice already asking where they were and what the kids were doing. After half an hour, I called my mom just to know whether they were on their way home already. Turns out they stopped at our house in Tagaytay for a couple of minutes to get some stuff they needed back at the house. Then I find out my dad bought a chicken -- a real, live chicken. I know it's bad to transfer my phobia to the kids. But visions of the chicken walking around the yard (or worse, inside the house) is making me hyperventilate. I
am thinking bad thoughts...really bad thoughts...bad like in evil thoughts...that chicken better be careful.
Someone gave Joshua a pair of shoes with roller skates attached to them. I hate them. I think it is unsafe for children to wear. I see parents with their kids wearing these in the mall and on the streets and I am always thinking of the potential accidents that can happen. I am being too overprotective, aren't I?
Probably to make up for last year's laziness, I am burning up with I-must-organize-the-house frenzy. I just bought bright colored plastic canisters to store items under the bathroom sink and a stainless steel caddy to organize all the stuff we use on the bathroom counter. Last night I bought mobile plastic baskets (the kind that stack up) to use for the kids' toys. I can't wait for Saturday!
Then I bought a beautiful pair of high heeled sandals with silver straps and embroidered wedge heels to go with my pale lavender gown which I will wear to next week's big company event (must remember not to eat carbs this weekend). This has no connection at all to organizing the house but I really, really love those shoes. Been going back to the shop every now and then just to look at it, thinking I will never be able to justify buying it as it is (a) expensive and (b) I had no occasion to wear it to. I bought it today because (a) it was on sale (45%off! yesss!!) and (b) I have no shoes that go well with my pale lavender gown.
I love my shoes.
P.S. American Idol is hilarious!
