081719 With the challenges of menopause, I’m extremely grateful for days without bouts of debilitating anxiety, panic attack, palpitation, internal vibration, etc. Recently, I came across an FB focus group that discusses all the ills of this dreaded phase and I am so so so glad to know my feelings are not unique to me.

My take-away is: if all tests come back normal, chances are, the symptoms may be due to hormones.

081119 Notes to the 3 sons:

Your future does not lay in front of you… it lies deep inside you.

Life is not about finding yourself… it’s about creating yourself.

When life gets crazy, do something normal… and when life gets too normal, do something (a little) crazy.

Always be nice.

Practice the art of listening.

Never forget… we will love you forever, for always, and no matter what.

071819 The sons at Saud Beach, Pagudpud 10 years ago. They were aged 15, 12 and 5 years old then.

The youngest one silently sat by the shore and longingly watched his siblings play in the sea. He wanted to join them splash, swim and frolic before sunset. He was told (repeatedly) to just play in the sand because he had his swim at Kabigan Falls earlier in the day. We were worried he might catch a cold for over-exposure.

Quite reluctantly, he did obey. This 5 year old boy, young and gung ho as he was then, was wise enough not to have any fit.

Looking back now, none of the boys had bratty outbursts when they didn’t have their way. I’m really pleased they took after their Pa in that aspect.

We didn't use a face app or aging filter in reverse for this.  Lol.  This is really an old photo taken during the summer of 2009 when the sons still had chubby cheeks and layer of pinchable fat.

That day the hubby drove a borrowed Crosswind from my Pa on our way to visit the provinces of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. The drive alone was 8-12 hours long depending on the traffic.

It took us less than 4 days. We toured the sights of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Vigan, then drove up to Laoag, Burgos, Bangui, Pagudpud and down again to Paoay before heading back to Las Piñas.

This is the wind farm along the coastline of Bangui Bay in the municipality of Bangui.  It is the first in the Philippines and Southeast Asia and has a capacity to generate up to 33MW.
