What's going on?

Nothing much is going on in my life at this moment. The most talked about event is YK's school trip. After attending many briefings and getting all his shots (typhoid, H1N1 and tetanus) done, YK will be leaving for India tomorrow morning.

Being a dutiful mother, I helped him change some Indian rupees, buy travel-size toiletries and learn to take care of his marine tank. I also cooked him his favourite seafood pasta for dinner last night as they will be eating vegetarian food in the village for the next 3 weeks. He'll certainly be more svelte when he returns.

I'm glad the mozzie didn't make an appearance last night, so I managed to sleep peacefully. It helped that I changed the sheets before bedtime. I suspect Rusty loves the smell of freshly laundered sheets because he slept so soundly, I almost didn't realise he was sharing my bed.

Remember the lost dogs I blogged about recently? One of them who wandered into the residential estate was sent to SPCA. I hope he has found his owner. The other young dog is still living behind the school yard. My neighours and I take turn to feed him daily. He's still shy and keeps his distance though he surprised me by nuzzling my hand yesterday.

Oh, I must thank Xiang Long for recommending The Element: how finding your passion changes everything by Ken Robinson. I'm halfway through the book and I find it so relevant. I would recommend it to everyone, especially parents who wish to understand their kids better. It's an eye opener.

I forgot to mention that Simply Her magazine featured the organ stickers in their April issue. This morning, I sold some copies to a tourist who saw it in the magazine. She thinks it is a great product for her young children and other kids back home. She may even become a distributor one day.

Of course I had meant to start my exercise regime two days ago. But it's been so hard to get out of bed lately, all I want to do is make a cup of coffee instead of heading out the door so early in the morning. I feel guilty when I see people exercising yet I'm not motivated to do anything about it. That's just life.

Nothing much going on is good, at ease with yourself, sleep well, eat well, have time to read, that's all good.

This remind me of Pebbles quietly sneaking into bed last night between wifey and me and we didn't even realize she was there ... LOL!

India trip: make sure yr kid's careful with the water; where possible go for hot boiling water; not bottled water...a group fm CJC back in Dec went to Bangalore to teach English for 10 days n were floored as soon as they arrived with bad tummies; hospitalised for a few days... suspected culprit: unclean water.
