Hubby loves to sing. In person, he is not much on words to express how he feels. Sometimes he will just offer me a song to make me feel how important I am to him. He has a good voice and he can play instruments too like bass strings from musicians friend or acoustic guitar.
Hubby loves classical and contemporary music. The only reason we have pop CDs in the car is because of the kids, but if not, old songs would be on repeat.
So why I am saying this? Well it is because hubby is away and I am missing him so bad. I am actually not a fan of classical music but I am listening to it now as this is the closest thing that I can do to feel him, at least for next 5 weeks.
I can’t wait for June 22 to come when his temporary duty will be over and he will be here with us, so we can listen to his favorite classical music together.
He will be away for 1.5 months as he has to go to Majuro for work. This is the longest that he will be away from us. Last time he went on temporary duty was for three weeks only and it was difficult not just for me but for the kids as well as we missed him terribly.
So now I don’t know how we can endure 6 weeks. What’s making it worst is that Internet connection in Majuro is so bad that we can’t do video calls. We just send emails and we chat over at Skype but it is still not the same without hearing his voice and seeing him.
But at least we survived one week already. 5 more weeks to go. I can’t wait for June 22 to come, so he can come home to us.

I so badly need to lose weight. I just had my annual checkup and my doctor said that I am in the borderline already of having high blood pressure. My doctor recommended a diet plan for me which I have to observe so I don’t have to take maintenance meds, which will I will be taking for my entire lifetime if I start on it, to maintain an acceptable blood pressure.
My doctor also recommends doing exercise that is why I started doing brisk walking in the morning and in the afternoon before I go home. It is just a simple exercise and I am using an iPhone app called Walking Star to calculate my steps, my speed and the calories that I burned in doing it. There is actually a lot of iPhone app that I can use and one of the recommendations of my friend is the C25K running program. I wanted to try this as I have friends already who have been under this program and they really loose a weight. But first I have to buy a good running shoes and smart feet insoles before I can start with the program.
I need to lose at least 10 pounds and I don’t think Calorie Counting Diet program is not enough. Hopefully, I will be able to start with this fitness regimen and be able to sustain it

Viber is our new twitter. My online friends and I used to hang out in Twitter where we chat and talk but we find Twitter to be overcrowded already that we have to find a new venue where we can openly talk about anything under the sun. And so our solution, we created a group chat in Viber.
I love this new group chat as we don’t have to worry if other people will see our conversation as we have limited the group to our set of friends only. So we can talk about anything and everything, from rants, to good news and bad news and even showbiz news.
Just like yesterday, our topic was the family feud of the Baretto clan and our views on whether Reese should go to a Malibu alcohol treatment center.
Viber has been a part of my day to day routine now because it is here where I get to talk to the closest persons in my life.
