Once you reach a certain age, life becomes predictable. You wake up in the morning, skip breakfast, pig-out at lunch, snacks healthily at 4:30 P.M., tries to avoid dinner but ends up eating late dinner anyway which is more fattening (since it's more ideal to have the last meal of the day before 7:00 P.M.)and to compensate for the late dinner sleeps real late (1:00 A.M.) then wakes up before the alarm goes off at 6:00 A.M. and the vicious cycle starts anew. In between the eating are tasks that needs to be done. I've some help in the cleaning and laundry department but some tasks are just for me.

Not that I'm complaining for I've had my share of escapades and never-to-forget-experiences.. BUT! my life has become so monotonous and gray. There's just nothing to get excited about.

Oh look! It's Chip's bath day! Yey!

I have never thought that giving my puppy a bath would be the hi-lite of my day. It used to be that I wish there were 28 hours in a day for 24 was just not enough. The kids are all grown up and my schedule is not quite as hectic. Now, there's just too many idle hours. Idle, not because I'm not doing anything. Idle, because I do not enjoy what I'm doing and the tasks are not fruitful enough. Routine!... and routine sucks. You might say "stop doing what you don't like to do." Right. But if I do that the house would cease to be a home. Sigh!

  4. hey cheer up!!! just look at your kids that all grown up and successful in their chosen careers. pag nakatapos c bunso wala ka na problema...kami nina huling malayo pa ang lalakbayin para makapagpa-graduate ng anak.

    o baka kelangan mo na talaga mag-enroll sa OpenU para mabawasan ang "idle hours" mo :)

  5. I have worried about this. I am so used to the rush rush of everything that I can't imagine once my kids are gone. I am glad I went back to college. I'll have a good job by the time my kids are gone.
