Day 217.

Happy Thursday! 🧡

Wishing my sister a very Happy 25th Birthday!!!! Where did the years go? It was a day well spent. We watched Beauty and the Beast, drank white claws, ate gummy candy, popcorn, and chips. Perfect way to start the day and then we went to sleep.

I slept in and didn’t get up until 1:45pm. It was all good timing since I was waiting for a call. Afterwards, I played more Animal Crossing. Officially at 280 hours! I’ll be racking up more hours this weekend. Woo!

Back to work for me tomorrow. I also have an appointment in the morning. My routine is back!

Enjoyed the NLCS tonight. 😎 The ALCS was mehhh. Come on, Rays!

Highlight of the day was visiting our family. It was a quick visit, but it’s always nice to see them especially our Lola. We miss her! She’s doing well. ❤️

That was my Thursday. I’ll be winding down shortly. I’m super tired now. Take care!

Good night.

Day 198.

Happy Saturday! It’s been a sad day. I found out this morning that our uncle passed away suddenly. 😭💔 He was so kind. RIP Tito Rino. 🤍

A death always puts everything into perspective. It’s a wake up call! I need to do more with my time. I need to stop wasting the day. This year has been super tough for everyone, but I’d like to believe there’s a silver lining after all of this. There has to be.

I played my uke and dedicated Somewhere Over the Rainbow to my uncle. Fly high!! 🌈

The Giants are in control of their destiny. They were handed a loss. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. It’s win or go home. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: The final Bug-Off event of the year happened today. I did pretty well for myself. I redeemed my points for a spider plate door decor. Perfect for the fall and Halloween!!

I finally got a workout in. This week has been heavy, but I’m slowly getting back on the horse. Work will be resuming shortly. There’s a lot to do before then. Just breathe.

We ordered Hahn’s Hibachi for lunch. Brings back so many memories! I got my usual, bbq chicken with rice. I’ll finish the last of it tomorrow.

Lastly, I wanna say Happy Birthday to my cousin, Ryan! 🥳🥰🎂

Well, I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 121.

Happy Saturday! It was laundry day for me. I love clean blankets and sheets. 😊 I woke up at a decent time today too.

Spent some of our afternoon in the backyard. Dogs wanted to be in the sunshine. So cute. They’re a handful, but we love them both so much. ❤️🐶❤️

Animal Crossing update: I participated in the Fish Tourney. I redeemed my points for a fish crossbody. So cute. I even got to hang out with my cousin on his island. I dropped off bells and a birthday gift. Happy Birthday, Adrian! 🥳🎂 Thanks for coordinating, Katie. 💕

We’ll be watching Dumb and Dumber tonight. Yay! One of our favorite movies.

It was a mellow Saturday. I hope I sleep at a reasonable time tonight. We’ll see. Lol. Take care!

Good night.

Day 117.

I’m still wearing a mask around the house. It’s a small inconvenience, but I can deal. I want to make sure my family is safe. I’m doing my part. I think I mentioned this a few days ago. Just repeating it again.

The Sinner kept me up. Found out I just watched s2. Lol. I’ll watch s1 soon. 🙃 Netflix kinda messed up the descriptions. All good though. More Bill Pullman. 🥰

I spent most of my day indoors. I’m making steady progress on Animal Crossing. Pascal gave me a mermaid dress in exchange for a scallop! Win. I’m expecting a DIY recipe soon.

I went outside for a bit with the fam and our dogs. We took in some sunshine in the backyard. It was nice. The dogs enjoyed it.

I’m going to play my uke shortly. It’s been calming the last few times I’ve played. I’ve been a bit uneasy as of late. I hope I get a good night’s sleep. Hasn’t happened in a while.

Lastly, I just wanted to greet my dear friend Brea a very Happy Birthday! 💕 Wish we could celebrate. But I hope your day was splendid.

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.

Day 71.

TGIF! Today was okay. I was tired. Yesterday took most of my energy. Definitely a rest day.

I was in touch with my medical team since Monday is a holiday. I have to jot down my weight, blood pressure, and my pulse for Tuesday. This is my second teletherapy appointment. It’s not too bad. I just miss going to clinic. Anyway, one of my tests came back a little elevated. I think this means I need to wean myself off of junk food again especially chips. My medicine arrived today too! I took a nap after the phone call. I was super sluggish.

My Switch lite cases from Japan arrived today! I wasn’t expecting them until next week. I’m in love. Super kawaii.

We finished Brüno after Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. What a wild movie! It’s super funny. Then we watched a few episodes of Unsolved Mysteries.

Planning to be productive tomorrow. I need to go through my closet. Some old items especially clothing need to be donated or trashed. Little by little, I’ll get my room in order. I haven’t been able to organize. I’m too preoccupied with Animal Crossing tbh. Lol.

That was my Friday. I hope you all had a good day! And Happy Birthday to my friend, Dale! I hope we can see each other soon. ❤️ Shelter in place is winding down, but I’m still very anxious.

Take care and good night.

Day 43.

Happy Birthday, Coco dear! ❤️🐶 We miss you so much. We love you. We decided to bake cupcakes and order In-N-Out to celebrate. The fries were always her favorite.

I had terrible anxiety before bed. So I stayed up watching Hulu and played a bit of Animal Crossing.

I woke up at 9am, but decided to nap in the afternoon after playing some more Animal Crossing. My house is built! I’m loving the game.

Practiced my uke. I’m on Day 15. I practiced my strumming and chord changes. I’m getting more comfortable. Any kind of progress makes me happy. 🙂

TGIF! I’m glad it’s the weekend again. I always rest as much as I can. Hope you all had a great day.

Good night.

Day 38.

My sleep was alright. I had to take a Benadryl since I was feeling meh. That made me drowsy, but it helped.

I washed dishes, I cleaned, helped prep dinner, and baked brownies for our Lolo (grandpa). Today would’ve been his 101st birthday. We miss him so much. Love you, Lolo. ❤️

Watched the ESPN series on MJ and the Chicago Bulls. What a dominant team! I remember that a lot in the nineties.

Just finished practicing my uke. I learned some more strum patterns. Yay! There’s always progress no matter how big or small.

Cheers to a new week! Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Good night.

Day 37.

Happy weekend! I tried to sleep in, didn’t happen. I got hungry so I had some cereal. Then I got sleepy again. I brushed my teeth and went back to bed.

I got to catch up with a friend via IG before my nap. Hi Mich! 💕

Today marks the 114th Anniversary of the 1906 Earthquake in SF. There’s usually a celebration, but due to the shelter in place it was cancelled. SF ❤️

Day 10 of uke practice! I learned You Are My Sunshine. ☺️ It’s always been a fave song of mine growing up. So proud of myself.

I tried to clean, but no luck. I’ve been quite tired. Hoping to take care of chores tomorrow.

I’m ready for a good night’s sleep. Dealt with some motion sickness while playing video games. I’m feeling a little better.

I also wanted to greet my cousin Happy Birthday! Hope you had a nice day, Jetih. 🥰🎂🎊

Time to sleep. Hope your Saturdays were awesome!

Good night.

Tea time!

Before February ended, my sister and I got to celebrate once more with friends. It was such a pleasant afternoon. We all got to catch up over a nice cup of tea. I love my Fujifilm instax camera. Side note: I’ve been buying a variety of film. 💗

It reminded me of London. I miss it! Hoping to return in a few years.

I still need to finish entries from my London tour. I’ve been balancing a bunch of things these last few weeks.

I hope everyone is doing well! 🙂 Will update some more soon.
