2016 was a blur. I am not saying that it was an uneventful or bad year. It wasn't either for me. It's just that it came and went so fast. So fast that I didn't even had time to blog.
I had a baby girl in 2015 so most of 2016 was spent taking care of my baby and experiencing the joy of watching a human being grow day by day. Sure, the year had it's own challenges. We lost loved ones who succumbed to illness or old age. We had the most number of household staff turn-over this year. There was even a period when I had no help at all and I had to play "stay-at-home mom with a lil gig on the side called a full time job". I had personal health issues. It wasn't an easy year. But when I look back on the past year, I am still filled with joy and gratitude. So yeah, 2016 was a pretty good year.
I am welcoming 2017 with the same joy and gratitude with a prayer that this year will be better than the last. I don't really have resolutions, though I should. I have hopes and aspirations. I hope for good health for myself and everyone I know. I am looking forward to becoming a full-fledged homemaker this year, hopefully keeping the current set of powerpuff girls that we have right now for the whole year or longer. Before that keeps me busy, the family hopes to get away for a few days to do some fun boy-kiddie stuff that were postponed because we had a baby. I hope for peace, because I am a beauty queen (Bb. Kinder Pearl, beybeh!), in our hearts and in the world. I hope for Duterte to live forever. I hope for other mushy stuff I'd like to keep to myself.
I am looking forward to a productive year at work and at home. At the same time, I am looking forward to holidays and long week-ends. Here's something to help us plan those holidays and long week-ends. So eto na, para lang magka-picture ang blog post na ito.
Now, I saw this picture on the FB wall of my cousin Kathrina. From the pic it says that it was created by one Dr. Esna Jain. I find this one-page 2017 calendar to be super .... galing, for lack of a better word. Nalingaw ko.
Bring it on, 2017!
