MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: NOVEMBER 19-25, 2018.

We had to say goodbye to our dear Coco. It was difficult, but we knew she was at peace. We’ll love you forever.

This chapter of our lives (adolescence) has come to an end. Turning the page for new adventures with Beari and Sally. They’ll always be the three amigos though. As I’ve mentioned before, each and every dog who has come into our lives has taught us so much. It’s allowed me to open my heart and care for another dog. There’s so much room in my heart, although it isn’t the strongest. Each dog was/is special.

I dedicate this post to our family dogs, past and present. ❀

To the pictures!

LET ME THINK 27.

Currently playing: Martha My Dear

I’m a crying mess.

I’ve always been an emotional person ever since I can remember. Death is a part of life and I’ve dealt with it for the last two years: relatives and pets.

I find myself sleeping late. My sleeping patterns haven’t regulated. I also find myself looking for Coco. She was a big part of our routine. I miss washing her bowl, getting her food ready, and sitting with her on my lap as we all watched TV. I think one of the reasons why I haven’t been too keen on updating my blog is because it was her last few weeks with us and we didn’t even know it at the time. 😦

(I will update when I’m ready. I just need some time.)

I’ve been looking through old pictures. It’s comforting, but also very sad. Time flies. And it never stops even if you want it to.

The dogs I grew up with have taught me so much: how to love, to be a friend, to be patient, to be kind, and to be comforting. I miss all of them every day. I’ll never forget them. Thank you for everything.

Good night.

RIP Coco.

Coco (2001-2018) passed away peacefully on Monday, November 19, 2018.

It’s been somber at home. But we all know she’s in a better place. We just miss her presence. She was the sweetest dog ever. It really won’t be the same without her especially with the holiday season approaching.

Run free, girl. I hope you’re enjoying all the food and treats. Until we meet again, darling.

I love you.

MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 20-26, 2018.

What went on this week? A few more days at Disneyland, cancelled flight getting home from LAX (ahhh!), a day spent in SF, and then off to the airport again to visit family in Canada! It was a hectic, but exciting week.

I was so happy about the food in Canada, quality time spent with family – especially my cousins + meeting baby Scarlett, and taking in a new country. I’m obsessed with Tim Horton’s! Haha. I shall return!!

To the pictures!

Vacay!

Hello!

I’ve been MIA. I promise to have things in order and updated once I settle in from vacation and the start of the new school year.

I’ve missed blogging and updating folks. I have so many pictures to sort through.

Canada’s been so much fun with my family! Watch out for that update. I just finished packing up. Maple syrup everything!!! ☺️ And Tim Horton’s. Wow. I love you. Haha.

Good night to all!

Bruised and sore.

Here’s my update. I went through a lot this past weekend. It was actually terrifying.

We adopted a dog to add to the family on Saturday, 6/23. Her name is Sally. She’s a chihuahua, five years old, and was born with one eye. The other eye didn’t develop. 😦 She’s originally from the Central Valley. She’s very sweet, but still adjusting to her new environment. Anyway, after adopting her, we decided to go to Petco to buy a few things for her – a kennel, food dish & water bowl, a bed, and a toy. We were looking forward to getting home, but we never got there.

On our way home, my brother and I were involved in a car accident. We were 10 minutes away from home. We were at 23rd Street and South Van Ness. It was our light to go. As my brother attempted to make a left, this car is speeding from the left side and hits us. He pressed on the brakes as much as he could have. Our car is a tank, but a lot of the damage was in the front. I saw the bumper fly off. It was the first automobile accident that I’ve been involved in ever. It was really scary! And having the dogs there was even scarier, but they’re safe. I on the other hand had to be transported to the ER due to my underlying health conditions and I was bruised up pretty badly. I’ve got bruises on my knees, my chest, and overall soreness everywhere. I’m still dealing with it. It sucks! :/

X-Rays were ordered for my knee. Thankfully there was no fracture. I was able to go home after a few hours.

Our Subaru saved us just like in their commercials and I am eternally grateful. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be attentive behind the wheel. Please stay away from all distractions, especially your phones. It can wait!!! I don’t drive enough in the city, but it’s always the other drivers. You can be the safest driver, but someone else can mess that up for you.

I’m recovering now and should be healed up for Orlando. I’m very excited! πŸ™‚

Thank you so much to my cousin, Adrian for getting to the scene, the witnesses, and first responders.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s to an awesome week!!

LET ME THINK 18.

It was a long week. The weekend was restless for me.

The next couple of weeks are going to test my patience, mentality, and focus. I just have to keep going! #resilience Family is keeping me afloat. There will be better days. I know it!!!

On another note, I’ve been thinking about love. All my past crushes and unrequited love. I wish them all well! But wouldn’t it be crazy if I randomly bumped into one of them and suddenly we reconnected?! Yeah, right. Haha. Stranger things have happened.

This is also a reminder that I can do anything! Reach for the stars.

I’m tired. Good night and have a great week!

LET ME THINK 16.

  1. This day has come. I’m so sad. Today is our cousin’s funeral. I don’t want to say goodbye. 😦
  2. I’ve been processing the last few days. Family is everything.
  3. Relatives still can’t tell Bianca and I apart. Lol. #twinlife #twins
  4. It’s been great catching up with everyone.
  5. Maria(n) was strong and I will continue to be.

Good night. I have to be up in a few hours.
