the weekend was absolutely crazy!!!! last minute crazy errands for mom's party and of course, she doesn't know so she was always calling me to make me do stuff for her...and at the same time mad at the world again.. i was sooo close to getting into an argument w/ her on Saturday too.. and yesterday I was hoping on being able to do ALL the last minute stuff, but OF COURSE, we had to go to Pier 39 LOL.... some of my family from L.A. are here so my parents wanted to take them around for the day... uummm ya... i lost the whole day to do my crap! sooo got home pretty late and started going crazy then.... in a way it was good to keep myself busy because i was getting TOO excited cuz Eugene is coming!! ugh... so of course i forgot lotsa stuff yesterday and have to do that all this morning before I head out to the airport... then mari, ethel, jeps, & my aunt are helping out with LOTSA stuff while im not back yet... mom's party is looking good so far.. hopefully we have a good turn out... i hope she likes it, even if its not a huge celebration, or as big as i wanted it at least, i hope she'll like it...

all the stress this past couple of weeks/months
all the money spent for the preparation
all worth it to give mom a birthday party and to be with Eugene for the holidays :)

now off to see my love :P

its finally Friday, this week definitely dragged on... at work that is... everytime i got home i was always running around with errands left and right... slow day at work, i wanna leave early but i doubt i can... just sitting around thinking of what i need to do this weekend... REALLY looking fwd to our wine night with the girls tonight...with all these hype and craziness going on... we need a breather!

mom came back from the Philippines last night and it was really great to see her again...she had lotsa sad, funny, and scary stories to tell as usual, never fails! raymond of course quickly opened her luggages looking for "pasalubong" like as if my mom came back from a vacation!!! it was really sweet of her to bring back stuff for Eugene & Brazil (jeps gf) too :) she was kinda upset that the TFC & cable was cut off at home hahahaha.. we thought she just forgot to pay the bill but she said she did before she left so now she's all bummed out that she can't watch her TFC hehehe.. she's already going thru withdrawals!!

A lil fun for Christmas

from the yellow house :P

irked & overwhelmed

since mom's still in the Philippines, its been so hectic... w/ planning for the holidays to playing mom with my brothers and also planning her surprise bday party.... my days have consisted of work then a quick eating break, then tutoring, then pick up raymond wher ever he is - take him to karate class then pick him back up from karate class then take him back home.. then whatever time i have left after that.. i deal with minor logistics for the party... and mind u, this isn't even a huuuuge celebration.. i really just wanna throw something different for her since its her 50th bday this christmas (yes, mom's a xmas baby)... but even if its just pretty simple.. there's still sooo much to take care of.. making sure i invited everyone that needs to be invited and no one is left out, and of course im already dealing w/ ppl who just because i haven't gotten to them yet, is already assuming that they're not invited and already causing major drama!! OMG!!! im sooo over it!! so i gotta deal with that hopefully this afternoon in between work and picking mom up from the airport and smack them with an invitation to their face so they'll shutt the F up.. ugh!! seriously!! ur too old to be acting like a damn kid!! ne weiz!! last night was the most complicated cake order experience i had!! ive been speaking with the manager of red ribbon with regards to inquiring about designs and prices and whatnot... i finally went to the shop last night to place my order and manager's not there...and OF COURSE the ppl left at the shop didn't know what the freakin hell they're supposed to do... don't know crap... why the fuck do u leave ppl in charge of a store who don't know their work?!!! agggh!!! it seriously took me an hour to order a damn cake... and my cake order was freakin simple!! no super fancy decorations or anything.. geeeezz!! i thought it was gonna be easier cuz i already spoke to the lady in tagalog..and it was STILLLL a hard process!!! so i was thinking, if i didn't know how to speak tagalog.. i wouldve been there for wayyy longer..and she kept giving me attitude that i should hurry because they're almost closing and luckily i was able to contain myself and not go off on her so i just cursed in my head screaming HOW THE HELL IS IT MY FAULT? ur the one who don't know what ur fucking doing!!!! aaggghh!! ;asldkjfa;sdljkfa;sldfja;sdlfajsdfs;j!!!! ok... so i finally finish my order just to find out that they don't provide u w/ a cake stand... how the hell do u sell a double/tripple layered cake and not provide a cake stand?!!!! AND...they don't sell it there either!! so i have to go to a diff store to buy that shit!! ne weiz.. done and over with... cake pick up is gonna be at the same time ill be at the airport picking up Eugene so i'll have someone pick it up for me instead...with that outta the way.. i can now focus on just the planning parts... still lots to do... my list is so long already... so much to buy... i seriously don't know how my mom can just throw parties like its nothing... man, im beat!!! soooo just gotta do some last minute shopping, then talk to some ppl for confirmation, then pick up food and on the actual day of...just gotta worry about who can help out in the morning to set up and decorate the place.. THEN i gotta make sure my mom goes to it!!! im most likely gonna have to get her myself just to make sure she doesn't decide not to go! then of course can't forget that there's still lotsa cleaning that needs to be done in the house.. howllayyy our house looks kinda neglected.. everyone's been so busy w/ everything.. but this weekend... promise!! lol... ok well it feels better letting those frustrations can't wait till monday.. i hope mom will like her party and of course, can't wait to see Eugene again!!!! :)

for all the ladies

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him,
who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep...
wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats,
who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on.
One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you....
The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'

and yet..another blogger...

so much for giving up on the xanga... i just realized..whenever i have any down time at work, its not quite productive to keep refreshing my facebook home page to see who's updated in that last 2 minutes (since i last checked) cuz trust me.. it can get pretty boring!! lol.. so since i always have too much to say.. might as well share away by blogging again =T dunnoe if that's such a good thing..but oh well..

so it's December again.. this year definitely flew by.. lots of great stuff happened, wonderful memories have been made and shared...i always love reminiscing and thinking back to all the good things that has happened

January: woke up to a phone call from eugene for a sweet happy new yrs wish- def. put a great start on my day...let alone, my year.. raymond turned 10 - he's such a big kid now.. i soo miss the days when he was still small and chubby and super cute!! was also Alexi's 2nd that girl is tooooo smart! i love it!

February: finally got to go to Canada to see Eugene :) 'nuff said, that was a perfect month :)

March: a lil bumpy dealing w/ emo ppl, but fun celebrating Ethel's 23rd!! Lola's 80th bday and had a HUGE celebration.. wish we could've made it!!! Marc's 23rd (right?) and had the Vegas theme party at the hotel.. no one really dressed up but us :( still a fun night! Suz's 23rd bday too..but we didn't get to celebrate w/ her since she's in SD..

April: hhmm April wasn't a very interesting month now, is it? =X I guess i got my tax refund, that's always good!! can't wait for the next one to come already!!! Well can't forget about our April babies tho.. Tine & G!! i love how G's older than me haha..

May: aghh turned 24!!! this is my year: May turned 24 on May 24 hahaha.. but the excitement wasn't all about that.. Eugene came for my bday to visit and despite the stupid beach house incident, it was the best bday yet :) the gang finally got to meet Eug... besides Ethel and G cuz they both decided to travel on that time!! ggrr (haha). Shell & Ryan also turned 24... aight.. let's get this ball rollin, its bdays galore!!

June: Jepoy turned 19... he's so much of an adult now, but still barely acts like one.. *sigh* it was also dad's bday (well if he was still here, that is) but nothing better than his son graduating as a bday gift - jeps HS grad was on dad's bday... it was a REALLY hot day - but STILL didn't get a tan! oh btw... Angela FINALLY turned21!!! that's been wayyy over due!!

July: Lyn finally turned 23!! oh man our baby!!!! swear she needs to catch up..hahaha

August: ahh! got to go back to Canada, this one's a much longer stay and it was still TOO short :( met Eugene's aunts & uncles... major interrogation, but it was more hilarious than scary.. i guess being a girl, i'll always get the easier side of the interrogation process as to being a guy.. even he got questioned more and its his fun times w/ the drunken fambam! :) went camping for the first time ever.. pretty cool experience.. went to Niagara Falls, scary as hell!! but still loved it! highlight of the Niagara trip was the haunted house.. oh man.. nothing will beat that.. =X it was def. a wonderful month!!

September: why do i feel like it was someone's bday in sept?.. the months start to end (lol what an oxymoron!) w/ "ber" now.. meaning the holidays are soon to come.. should've started preparing already by this time.. but no...

October: oohh candies! hahaha.. it was fun watching the kids come by for trick or treatin.. spider man, lady bugs & bumble bees were a very popular costume!!!

November: we FINALLY had our housewarming party!! hahaha put that together with the halloween party that turned out great!! EVERYONE dressed up.. it was awesome!! such a fun night.. got wasted pretty bad! but that's all part of the process.. this was also, may i add, the first time ever that i've seen G pissed drunk! it was great! hahaha.. saw Sheila after forever!! good times!! Mom went home to the Philippines cuz lola got really sick.. then she recovered after that bad hit.. and of course... and of course Mari finally turned 24!! woot woot!! join the 24 yrs old club!!

December: oh man.. where do we start.. this month went by sooo fast! just so much going on.. starting the month w/ a bad news about lola.. but recovering from it.. mom went home to the Philippines.. a tough one, but it was good in the same way because she finally got to see all her brothers and sisters again.. semi bad reunion, but it was nice that they got to be all together again! :) currently stressing over all the stuff i need to work on for mom's surprise bday party cuz this xmas is her 50th.. i regret the fact that i shouldve saved up for this a lonngg time ago but too much happened that it was quite inevitable.. oh well.. we're still tryinna pull it off w/ a semi big celebration.. looking fwd to it bcuz mom definitely needs a lil cheering after all that she's been thru this yr.. and of course.. last but not the least.. Eugene's coming!!!... can't wait to be with him again :) looking fwd to our SoCal trip w/ the whole gang!! San Diego/Mexico/LA!! yeeaaa :D

but when there's good, there's always bad...this year i lost 4 members of my family all within a matter of 2 months!! lost 2 uncles, a little cousin, and my grandma :( i miss them all dearly and wishes sooo bad that i could've seen them even for the last time.. xmas wont be the same this year :(

but not planning on ending my year w/ a frown... still looking at the bright side.. i did that last yr and it brought me this year... it works for me sooo im doing it again! lol.. yea im a weirdo.. since i get to spend NY w/ Eugene so i know its gonna be perfect! looking forward to welcome a wonderful 2008
