- Aly will be starting summer school tomorrow, 09 June! That means, mornings in the Valdez household will be busier than ever, now that I have to attend to both my husband's and my daughter's needs. I wonder how it's going to be like now that we don't any maid. I hope it's not going to be too toxic for me! Cross your fingers!
- Richard will be celebrating his nth birthday next week on 20 June! I'm planning to prepare a small party for him and his office friends. Gosh, it's going to be another iron chef challenge for me since his office friends come from different backgrounds (there's a Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian and Japanese) so I have to come up with a foolproof menu that should be appealing to all of them. There's so much I need to do -- come up with a theme (that includes the menu), check with Oakwood for a nice outdoor venue that we can use, shop for ingredients and buy my husband a gift!
It would have been easier if we were in Manila, but being in a different country makes being a housewife, a mommy and a solo party planner more challenging. I get motivation from the fact that the more difficult and impossible the challenges may look like, overcoming them will be so much sweeter and a hundred times more fulfilling.
