Day 97.

I gotta get back to my exercise routine. I’ve been too busy with other things! Hopefully I can get a workout in tomorrow.

I had a tech appointment today. I went in for an echo, a sonogram of my heart. The mask I brought with me wasn’t allowed. I was able to wear it the last time. I found that a bit odd. They gave me a disposable one and was allowed to proceed to the elevator. The tech was really nice. We discussed everything. I was a bit anxious heading over. I hope everything looks good.🤞🏼 Thankful that our aunt was able to give us a ride.

We did some grocery shopping. I helped unload. I wasn’t allowed to leave the car. Too risky! Yay more food and necessities! 👍🏼 We brought back chicken bakes and hot dogs. The weather was really nice today too so I ordered boba milk tea for the fam.

Animal Crossing update: my island is full! I’m happy with my current villagers. I’m still paying off my current loan and figuring out where to move some buildings. If I only knew where to properly place everything in the beginning. Oh well. Lol. I need bells!

I’m about to practice my uke and heating up my leftover quesadilla. I’m pretty tired. There was a lot going on. I plan to take it easy tomorrow, but remain productive. The week is flying.

Hope your Wednesdays went well! Take care.

Good night.

Day 96.

I didn’t do much today. I’m still wiped out from yesterday’s activities. I took it easy.

Animal Crossing update: Keaton has moved out and Canberra is moving in. I’m excited to have a new villager! She’s a koala and she’s pretty cool. Still trying to tidy things up and sell items. I’m out of storage at my house so I’m trying to get rid of things I don’t need. It’s a trip. Check out the pic of me making a wish! 💫

I spoke to my therapist this evening. It’s great to talk it out. It’s healing for me! We’ll chat again in three weeks. It was a productive conversation.

I had to nap after my call. I felt sluggish a few hours before my appointment, but I didn’t want to oversleep. I napped for 1.5 hours. I feel a bit refreshed.

Had a quesadilla for dinner. Fruits for dessert. I just danced for 15 minutes to complete my exercise ring for the day. I hope I can practice my yoga tomorrow. I felt off yesterday.

I’m about to play a bit of my uke and then check on my island again. I need to collect my star fragments.

I hope to do more tomorrow. It’ll be a busy afternoon for me since I have an appointment. I must mask up and make sure I have my hand sanitizer. I’m a bit anxious, but I think I should be okay.

Btw I miss my grandma. Hoping to chat with her later. ❤️

Hope y’all had a nice Tuesday! Take care.

Good night.

Day 95.

Today is the anniversary of my college graduation. Time flies! I’m still so proud of my accomplishments. I may get another degree, but we’ll see. 💙💛

A very Happy Birthday to Dusty Baker and Tim Lincecum! I graduated on a good day. 🙂🖤🧡

It was a busy day for me. I wish I could’ve napped but it wasn’t possible. I hope I get a good night’s sleep.

Animal Crossing update: my home is in a new spot! I’m trying to figure out how to decorate my lawn. I also need to relocate one of the stores on my island. Everything is a work in progress. And one of my villagers is moving out tomorrow. I wonder who will move in next. I hope it’s someone cool!

It’ll be busy for me the next few days. California is reopening, but as I said previously I’m still uneasy about it. I’ve been home since March 13. I’ve only left the house twice. I don’t want to be afraid, but it’s okay to feel like this. I’m still giving myself time to adjust. It’s absolutely necessary.

I’ve gotta practice my uke. I didn’t get to practice yoga today. I’m planning to do that tomorrow.

That’s all from me. I hope you all had a nice Monday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 94.

Now playing: 2 Become 1 – Spice Girls

I miss London so much! 🇬🇧 This time last year I was at Wembley with Mom and the sisters. Looking back, I’m very grateful we were able to make the trip to see The Spice Girls. It was a childhood dream come true. I almost didn’t go due to my portable oxygen concentrator fiasco, but I made it! 🙂 The night was nostalgic and it was perfect. I only wish Victoria/Posh Spice was there to complete the group. Maybe in the future? We’ll see. There are whispers that they’d like to tour again. If so, I’ll be there! ❤

Travel dreams are currently on hold due to the pandemic. Please be safe out there! This virus isn’t a hoax.

Anyway I have so many pictures from that trip that I still need to print out and archive. When my phone updated a few days ago, I freaked out a bit. I thought I lost it all. So many memories. Thankfully, my phone was just updating and it all turned up again.

I’ll be back for you, London! Still so many things to cross off the bucket list there. I need another week or two.

Day 93.

Cleaning and organizing is a trip! Out with the old and in with the new. It doesn’t get done in a day. Planning to tackle more in the coming days.

I’m pretty tired. My phone updated and a lot of my pictures were “missing”, but it turns out the iCloud was updating as well. I left my phone plugged in overnight and it was done 12 hours later. Thank goodness everything is back.

Played my uke for a bit. And then I got to play some Animal Crossing with Jamie. That’s always fun! But the internet connection went out since her niece messed with the Switch. I bought a cute botanical tee on her island too. Oh well. Maybe my store will carry it soon. Fingers crossed.

We watched some Unsolved Mysteries too. The paranormal ones scare me. It’s a re-enactment, but it’s eerie.

I hope tomorrow is a better day and I’m not as tired. Hope you all had a nice Saturday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 92.

Happy Philippine Independence Day! There’s a lot to unpack with being a Filipina American. I am proud of my roots and heritage nonetheless. I thought of my grandparents today. Everything I do is not only for myself, but for them. 🇵🇭❤️

My sleep was okay. Today was something though. I survived my workout. It gets difficult sometimes when you’re dealing with chronic conditions, but I always push through. I get to take it easy this weekend. Yay! And I’m getting used to the beets in my post workout drink. 😬

I washed dishes. Hurrah! It allowed me to destress. I’ve been in my head a lot lately. My dreams are translating into something. Not sure what. My anxiety is all over the place and I’ve been sad a lot. I guess it’s a rough patch, but I hope all will be okay.

Animal Crossing and the uke are always part of my daily routine. I gotta keep myself happy. I wish I would’ve napped but that’s okay.

Highlight of the day was my protein style burger from In N Out. I’m trying to be more disciplined. 😬🥴

I’m looking forward to the weekend. I need my rest, but I’m planning to clean as well. It’ll all get done.

Hope y’all had a nice Friday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 91.

I had to take it slow today. I did so much yesterday that I was pretty depleted when I woke up.

Today was my rest day. I love being able to relax. For brunch I had two slices of egg salad with chives on toast. I rave about Kewpie all the time. Not sure if I have on here. Kewpie is so much better than regular mayo. It’s the tanginess. It’s not a lot but it’s there. So good. Check them out if you wanna give them a try. Makes the egg salad experience that much better.

We watched a bit of She’s the Man. One of our fave movies. Amanda Bynes was too good! We also watched Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. Yay!

I decided to take a nap after that. I had a mini headache. And now I’m awake typing this up. I will continue to blog well into the summer. It’s been nice to just sit and reflect. Most of my days can be repetitive, but that’s alright.

Highlight of my day was talking to our Lola. We miss her so much! She’s been bored at home too. Haha. Hopefully we can visit her soon and we can have lunch with her by the porch while we sit in the car.

Hoping to be more productive tomorrow. I’m happy that it’s almost the weekend. Yay! I did practice my uke and played Animal Crossing. 🙂 Hope you all had a nice one.

Good night.

Day 90.

I was very restless before bed. I eventually fell asleep before 6am I think. A lot has been on my mind. My anxiety has skyrocketed, but I’m trying to breathe through it and not panic.

Our dog woke me up so I was awake by 10am. Played some Animal Crossing before I got up. I decided to make breakfast for the fam. I’ve been wanting to make mochi pancakes since the shelter in place. The recipe was easy to follow. It was delicious! We’ll definitely make it again. 😋

Watched a bit of TV and then I took a much needed nap. Afterwards, I got up to practice yoga and wash some dishes.

I assisted with dinner and we decided to go with comfort food! I don’t feel too bad since I had a good balance of fruits and veggies. My kencko smoothies are helping me. I feel healthier. 🙂

Played a few rounds of Trivial Pursuit. I wasn’t victorious tonight, but it was still a lot of fun.

Now I’m blogging to remember this day. I just finished practicing my uke. Made some errors with the song, but I eventually want to record myself for family and friends.

Just doing my best to stay optimistic during this uncertain time. California will be open again very soon. Maybe that’s what’s making me so anxious. Ahh!

I hope you all had a nice Wednesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 89.

Watched Two Weeks Notice. Hugh Grant reminded me of his role in Love Actually. Lol. It was an okay movie. I wanted to watch it because of Sandra Bullock. 🙂 She’s one of my favorite actresses.

It’s been an okay day. The days are just moving along. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself these days.

The only productive thing I did was schedule a tech appointment for my echo. I’m due for one. I hope all will be okay.

I’m enjoying my kencko smoothies btw. The fruit ones are really good. I had the yellows one today. It had a hint of cinnamon. Planning to try a new flavor tomorrow.

Played my usual Animal Crossing and uke. Cut some trees down. I don’t know where to group my flowers. I’ll figure that out this week.

We played Trivial Pursuit this evening too. Btw I finally won a round of scene it last night! It was such a good feeling. I was winless for a while. I’m content. 😊

Hope y’all had a nice Tuesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 88.

Happy Birthday to our dear cousin, Maria! We miss you so much. Maybe that explains my dream yesterday. I was somewhere with family and I saw a picture of her. Until we meet again. ❤️

Mondays are hard. I stayed up to watch Muriel’s Wedding and I slept in. I loved the movie and the music. 😊 My usual routine. But it’s a wake up call this week since more businesses and buildings will be reopening. Part of me is worrying, but the other part is telling me that all will be okay. It’s been so long since I’ve been outside for long periods of time. I will still remain cautious. Social distancing is important! Wearing a mask is too. So please make good choices.

I practiced yoga much earlier than other days. I wanted to take advantage of the sunshine. My kencko order also came in. I drank two packets today. I really like the packet with strawberries. You can put water, milk, or a nondairy alternative. It’s a mix of fruit and veggies. Healthy smoothies! I’ll monitor my progress.

Watched Unsolved Mysteries. The stories were so sad. 😭💔 I enjoy the pleasant episodes.

Played Animal Crossing. I still haven’t cut the trees down on my island. I’ll get to it later this week. Just practiced my uke. It helps to keep my fingers loose and ready each time. Still enjoy playing it. It’s such a cool instrument!

Will be much more productive tomorrow. I hope. I ate fairly well today. I did have a little bit of gummy candy. 🙂

That was my Monday. Take care!

Good night.
