*The first quarter….*

By Freek at 3:38 pm on Friday, November 23, 2007

Today marks the end of the first quarter of my life.

Kinda unnerving. Just like the day I turned 20.

Though that was just 5 years ago, so many things have happened since which differentiates me then and now.

But as I ponder about it again, there’s not much of a difference between me then and now. The only obvious difference is that now I have MORE responsibilities – have a career which requires me to uphold what values I disseminate to the future generation, a husband whom I love dearly, an extended family consisting of my lovely in-laws, being in-charge of household finances a.k.a Finance Minister of my home and, God willing, an added responsibility of educating my own. Responsibilities which I think, I couldn’t have done as well if I were to shoulder them, say, 5 years ago.

Besides that, I believe I am also more mellowed down then before. I don’t blow my top that much and I’ve been more successful in taming my swings. I’m more observant, more accepting of ideas, less rebellious and make lotsa mental notes of things to or not to do be it in my personal, career or social life. All these, if it were to be compared with me 5 years back. Ouh, and yah, I don’t get my i/c checked anymore when I go for movies. *winks*
Other than those, I am basically,? still the same old me. Still shy on initial meetings, still? being called “gila” constantly, still like making people laugh, still enjoy company of friends. I’m still fidgety – needing to move or do something every single second (or as Dy puts it, like a shark who needs to move constantly or else would die drowning). I still love donning jeans and wearing slippers. I am still 156cm and I still have a problem of weight which keeps on fluctuating(and it will only keep increasing throughout this few months).

So I guess, in the end, age is but a number.

It’s what is done within each passing year which counts. Whether we’ve done enough for ourselves in this life and the next.

Oh Allah, on this day and the days to come, please make me a better and stronger Muslim. Help me become a better wife, daughter, sister, daughter-in-law, student, teacher, friend and with Your will, a good mother. Rain down your blessings on the people around me. May they have the happiness they seek and a long but blessed life ahead of them.

I think I’ll only panic in another 5 years, aye?

*(I’m-not)Working week….*

By Freek at 1:53 pm on Tuesday, November 20, 2007

School’s finally out for the kids but of course, the teachers are still supposed to work for 1 more week. It’s the time when we become admin officers minding the admin side of our profession. As for me, I’ve decided to take the week off. Heh. Since the people up there have been advising me to stay at home as well, well, what the hay! Am going down to school on Thurs though to discuss my work review and also, to see how my boys.. and girl fared for their P-S-L-E.

Yesterday’s visit to the gynae was… exciting. *lol* Getting to see the Lil’ One’s head and all. Next visit will be next year at almost 5 months. The holidays will be used to really look after myself. Ok fine. I’ll be using the days pampering myself with sleep as I won’t be going travelling anywhere. Dy doesn’t have any off days left and of course, I have to avoid being nagged by 2 sets of parents who have been looking after me like I’m a fragile china doll. Can’t blame them though. It must be traumatic for them that I’ve been admitted into the hospital 4 times in the span of 6 months. Heh.

I’m expecting my weight to be going uphill from now. As of now, I’ve gained 2kgs of the 6kgs I lost last week. As much as I don’t wanna say this, but.. Hurrah!

*I miss….*

By Freek at 3:38 pm on Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Even with a throbbing migraine, I’m still typing it cos’ I am darn bored. Big time. Which is bad since this is my last day of medical leave and all. But, at the same time, I’m anxious to be out of the house once again. There are just loads of things I miss doing.

1. Dates

I miss going out for dates – with Dy or with the girls. Even had to skip a date with Ain since I didn’t want to spoil the night out with my constant spittings. Bottom line, I just miss going out, meeting people. I’m glad though the girls are coming over to my place next Saturday.

2. Movies

The last movie I caught was Resident Evil Extinction. Which means, that’s quite some time ago. But I’m glad I’m not missing much since there hasn’t been any movies which I wanna see. I’m hoping to stop salivating in time for ‘I am Legend’. Then again, it’s like cold turkey having to abstain from movies this long, so I’d jump the chance on any movie at all.

3. Cooking/Baking

Yes. I miss cooking. Just when I was getting inspired and am somehow developing that ‘cooking by instincts’ ability (yah, right..), my sense of smell got heightened and there was no way I could even step out of the room without complaining of the smell of cooking oil or cooking for that matter. Which meant, a halt to baking too. I remember the last baking I did was Hari Raya cookies. The smell of butter somehow triggered my nausea and that started the HG episode. So, it’s been quite a long time if you start counting from the third week of Ramadhan. I just miss serving my Dy with my own cooked food and seeing his delighted expression (when the food tastes nicelah!) on eating it.

4. T-to Rides

I just miss going out. Car rides to Mustafa, town, and anywhere around Singapore we might have the urge to go. I just miss going out.

Sigh.

But then again, I’m happy to be recuperating for the sake of the Little One in me.

Maybe this is what we call sacrifice.

*Reading…*

By Freek at 6:04 pm on Monday, November 12, 2007

Found a website which explains a whole lot of what I went through the past month. The one that got me in and out of hospital.

Hyperemesis gravidarum

And about my problem of salivating, click the link below.

Ptyalism

Feels good to know that I’m not alone.
