I work on average about 8.5-10hours a day therefore I try and enjoy my weekends. Honestly, I think I only have a day off in a week that's also if I don't need to go into to work on a Saturday. Sunday I spend my day doing laundry, cleaning the house, getting groceries, cooking up a storm and other stuff around the house therefore I don't really think that Sunday is my rest day although most of the time I enjoy what I'm doing especially cooking. It's a lot of work especially if I try and make every single thing from scratch but then I really think it's worth while. I try and cook more on Sundays so that hubby and I will lunch for the week (mostly me) and more to freeze for other days and also dinner. Very seldom I cook after work because I get pretty tired when I get back from work. On weekends is also the time I get to spend with Stanley and I have to bath him every weekend too (mostly on Sunday but depending on what we do on Saturdays because if he gets dirty on Saturday I won't wait till Sunday to bath him).
Hubby will normally try and spend his Sundays doing his homework if we have nothing going on that day therefore I will either get stuff done of sit on my butt to watch shows and frankly I think it's better if I move around although cooking food is not a really good exercise too. I know I just go back from supposedly vacation but it was really rush and it wore me out more than relaxing me. I think I need another vacation..

I love mobile phones. If I could I would change them every year and so far it seems like it’s kind of happening. The last cell phone I bought was the Sony Ericsson w810. Hubby and I love that phone and the feature. We loved it so much that he bought another for himself in December. It is not that I am ungrateful but I have been itching to get another phone. Hubby just got another work phone and I want to get one too. I’ve never had a slider phone and I’ve been thinking about getting one. I can get a phone from my carrier but will have to renew my contract or I can buy it else where. On one of my mission to see where I can buy unlock mobile phone apart from ebay I stumble upon iMobilePlaza. They are one of Indonesia leading wholesaler/retailer for mobile phone. Their online store sells not only brand new but also unlock phones which is great for me because I don’t have to mess with unlocking the phone. Will have to ask hubby to look at the website and decide which phone for me. :)

We had to bored Stanley while we were in Houston because we didn't want to inconvenient hubby's sister or his aunt and uncles. I was so worried that Stanley would be traumatize when we pick him up but luckily he was just his little self..I was worried because Stanley is very attached to us especially me. Stanley needs to be by either one of us all the time. Even when he's laying on one of us some other part of his body needs to touch the other one too.*slap head*
Trying to go to sleep on the bed in the hotel. Had to sleep with us even though there was two queen size bed!
We went to Keenah (beach side). The Saturday we were there. It was a record setting weather because it was so hot out (but I love it)..Got a slight tan.
Our journey home was also long. Stanley was really good on the way. He would stand on the suitcase so that he's taller and look out the window or he would just take cat naps. Daddy was very pleased with him. I felt like I left my heart in Houston because I love that place so much. We came home to the cold and windy state..sob sob..I was so excited to be at a warm place I forgot to pack some thicker clothing for my way home. I was cold until I arrived home because I was not properly dress. I also came home to a bunch of chores! I had tons of laundry to do, house to clean up, and also knowing that I know I have datelines at work but at the same time my heart was not here already.
Although we are slowly trying to adapt again (which is insane because we were only gone for a couple of days) but it still sucks because it's still snowing even though spring is suppose to be here already. I called FIL on my way home from work and told him not to come home because it's windy, cold and snowing. I told him to ask my MIL to stay there is she could because it really sucked being here..:P...My FIL said he could not wait to come back to this weather (which everyone agree he's a little sick :P).

Another good news is my new team leader (soon to be hopefully *fingers cross*)and my manager has approved my vacation..Yippieee..that means I get to go for my SIL's wedding in Texas. Initially I didn't have to worry about my outfit that I was going to wear for her wedding but not that I'm able to go I'm starting to get a little freaked out. Luckily I have a dress I was planning to wear if I didn't get to find another one and so now I just have to find a pair of pumps/sandals to go with it. I'm so very excited because this is a much needed vacation for both hubby and I. Daddy doesn't want to bring the little puppy with and wants to leave board him here but I insisted on taking my little baby with therefore we've agreed that we'll take him with and board him there for a couple of days at least I can go visit him there. Mummy will not leave you to some strangers for the amount of time that we'll be gone because mummy will miss him tons. It's going to be an interesting drive and I'm hoping that he'll eventually settle down. He's been so spoiled. He's been sleeping with us (in between us) every night and has been a really good boy. Some evenings when we are outside in the living room doing our stuff he'll just jump in bed and sleep on daddy's side because he's used to me being on my side at night when I go to bed first. I think he'll whine his little head off if he has to go in his crate at night. He's really good about going in his crate in the morning when we have to go to work therefore I am allowing him to sleep with us on the bed as I don't want him to feel coop up in there all the time.
