Grateful...

I just want to write a post about how thankful I am to the Lord for blessing us with the kind of life that we wanted to live.  We may not be blessed with financial abundance now that we have decided to stay in the Philippines for good but we have enough and that's all that matters.  I am in awe how God works wonders in putting things in order for me and for my family.  At the end of each day I am excited for the coming days because I feel like there are still more surprises God has in store for us.

To date, I am no longer a stay-at-home mom but a work-at-home mom and I'm happy.  Everyday my hands are full juggling my online work and my duties as a mom and a wife.  Our house help went on vacation two weeks ago and eventually told me that she's uncertain when she will be coming back because she needs to fix some family matters in the province. There are days when I feel dead tired but I love that feeling.  I feel like I am accomplishing a lot of things each day and at the same time having the luxury to just stay at home and look after my family.  I have already adjusted with my work schedule and thankfully I have flexible working hours.

I have also enrolled for a Master's Degree program and I will be majoring in Guidance and Counseling.  My classes starts next Saturday and I am very much excited but anxious at the same time since I will be out of the house every Saturday of this semester.  My class starts at 8am and ends at 6pm with one hour lunch break.

I want to share my work area...
Yes, those are vapor rub and katinko ointment.  I take them with me so that if ever I need to put some on the kids I won't have to stand up.

From Monday to Friday I am stationed at our dining table so that I could easily stand up and leave work for a few minutes if ever I need to attend to something. I have a small working table in our bedroom and I used to work there but after our house help left and I was the one taking care of everything in the house, I realized that though climbing up and down the stairs is a good exercise, it would just result to minor injuries every now and then especially when I'm rushing, hehe.

That small table was custom-made as a bedside table when I was still single.  It was originally painted white then I took it with me when I got married and painted it green and eventually painted it brown. Since I was the one who repainted it, the paint now is starting to wear off, hehe..
That is my small nook in our bedroom.  I am still in the look out for a perfect working table.

As for the rest of the brood, my husband works from home, too and the kids would still be home schooled. They'll start classes next week.
