I will never forget the month of April this year because it was the time the dreaded COVID-19 hit home. First, it was my MIL, then my husband, then me, and lastly, my FIL. Even my side of the family wasn’t spared as my brother and my two sisters had it as well. The silver lining in this unexpected ordeal? Our baby NJ didn’t have it and we — the COVID patients — all survived!
Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Vaccine Day + Minor Accident
Last weekend was quite busy. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia in Manila for yet another vaccine shot. (This time, it’s Hepa A vaccine and we paid P3,500 for it which was already inclusive of consultation fee.) The rest of the day was spent finishing errands.
Our Sunday was not so happy because baby NJ had a minor accident. She tripped while walking (ang bilis nya kasi maglakad, mana sakin, waaaah!) and bumped her knees on the ground and her left forehead on the sidewalk. She cried really loud and my mommy heart got broken into pieces for a few minutes. Her knees didn’t get scratched but her left forehead was a different story. While it didn’t swell, it turned red and got a small scratch. We immediately put an ice pack on it to soothe it. We also observed NJ in the next hours for other symptoms. Fortunately, she didn’t have any and even returned to her normal self just as soon as she stopped crying.

Weekend Story: Grocery Run + Angel Pizza’s Creamy Spinach Dip Pizza
Last weekend was quietly spent with my little family. I think the hubby and I only went out of the house to buy fresh meat from the supermarket. We also tried this relatively new pizza by Angel’s Pizza — creamy spinach dip pizza — which blew us away taste and price wise (i.e. double deal promo)! I now declare it’s our new favorite pizza! It’s tasty and soooo creamy because of the three cheeses (mozzarella, cheddar, and cream cheese) in it. It also has a generous amount of spinach and white onions that somehow lessen the guilt for me for having fast food for two consecutive meals on a weekend, haha.

2021 Personal Theme: Simplicity
I have always thought of myself as a simple person. While I also have an eye for the finer things in life, I make sure to live within (and sometimes even below!) my means. In fact, I still hate it when I go impulse shopping, but lately, I’ve been reminding myself that it’s okay to indulge once in a while and reward myself for my hard work all these years. So yeah, I can say I’m still the simple Edel that my family and true friends know by heart.
Weekend Story: Grocery Shopping + Visit to Vermosa Sports Hub
Last weekend was quite busy and fun. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with my sister Jodie and my SIL Albie, went grocery shopping at Puregold Molito. (We like it there because the prices are cheaper and there is lesser crowd than in other supermarkets.) We then had brunch at Manam Express (also in Molito) after.
Our Sunday morning was spent at home taking care of baby NJ. In the afternoon, we took her to Vermosa Sports Hub located along Daang Hari (the side going to Aguinaldo Hi-way). There is a food bazaar there during weekends but only people 15-65 years old are allowed. We skipped it and just brought our own food (from S&R Imus). We sat down on the grass (there are pockets of grassy spaces there), ate our “baon,” and took turns looking after baby NJ who got herself busy walking around. She was so thrilled upon arriving at Vermosa because the place was massive and she saw a lot of people (with their cars, bikes, and scooters) there.

Weekend Story: Car PMS + Gifted Clothes
Last weekend was a bit busy. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby to Quezon City for our car’s preventive maintenance. It took a few hours before we were allowed to drive the car again and since we got hungry while waiting, we opted to dine at one of the restos in Banawe before going home in Bacoor. Our Sunday was spent at the condo where we did a mini photoshoot of baby NJ and her gifted clothes just for fun. She’s one lucky baby because she gets a lot of nice dresses, tops, and bottoms from our family and friends, with or without a special occasion.
