Badminton Tournament

I wish I could watch my friend play tonight at their badminton tournament. The venue is just near our place. She mentioned about canvassing for trophies and medals the last time we were able to chat that was when she told me about joining them for some badminton practice last week. I could not join them because we had plans with the boys during those days last week.

My little guy just slept so I could not leave nor bring him with me to the game while he sleeps. Maybe this weekend during their championship match if they make it, I could watch my friend play that is if we won't be going to some Halloween events this weekend at the mall. 

Yes just too many events lately. But honestly I want to play badminton once again for fitness sake and just sweating it out once again. I really need that these days.

My Girls’ Weekend Out

Everything lined up perfectly. My husband was going out of the country on business, a couple old friends were traveling and in town, and I had no plans. It was the ideal time for a girls’ weekend out. Here are some highlights.

First of all (and yes, I know this makes me seem old and boring), I couldn’t bear to leave the house before getting a few errands done on Friday. I polished the glasses, finally, watered that damn plant by the front window, and then cleaned up my husband’s mess in the garage. Trust me, he was never going to do it on his own.

Once that was all out of the way, I headed downtown to meet my girlfriends for dinner and some drinks. My husband called while I was en route to tell me that he had landed in Frankfurt, I think. It was really hard to understand him on that cheap German Prepaid Cell Phone he was using.

I met my friends downtown and we went out to a great seafood restaurant. I got the trout, which is a fish I usually don’t particularly like, but it was a special that night and it was absolutely delicious. It was really great to catch up with people I haven’t seen in, I don’t know, at least six years. Time really flies.

After dinner we hit the town for some drinks, just like in the old days. Then I took a cab back home (slightly tipsy, not going to lie) and proceeded to pass out and sleep until my friends called me at 9am. They were outside and waiting for me, ready to head out to the spa.

We went to a spa two hours outside of the city in a lovely little town on a lake. I know my spas pretty well, but I had never been there before. It was a great find. We got facials, went to the pool, hung out at the restaurant, and generally just relaxed all day Saturday and Sunday. Finally, sadly, we headed back to my house Sunday night, where they dropped me off and continued on their way. It was a really nice girls’ weekend out.

Digital All in One Laser Printer

The hubby is the first to the bathroom since we must prepare to go somewhere this morning and that is  giving me some time to quickly checkout those Brother laser printers particularly that digital color all in one before we go out.

It has an excellent network connectivity via built-in wireless and Ethernet interfaces. It can print, scan, copy, and fax. With a capacity of printing seventeen pages per minute with a 600 x 2400 dpi print resolution. The spec says that it can be installed on a wired or wireless network for multiple users to share printing, scanning and PC-faxing functions. This seems for better use in an office than at home. Will check out some other options for home use. Though I have to say this is seems good enough already.

Now I have to go and prepare for it's my turn. Later again!

Restless Night and a Weird Dream

There are just rare times when you have these restless night and those weird dreams.
I don't know if it had been the fast food coffee that I drank during dinner last night since I want to try it for a long time or something was just really bothering me. I had a restless night that had me waking up so early as 5:35 in the morning while I slept already past one in the morning. To add to that, I woke up that time because of a weird dream that I just felt like crying it out to release the weird emotion I felt afterwards. 

Good thing I was able to sleep back and woke up though still tired yet at least that weird feeling from that weird dream is somehow gone by now. Back to reality. It's a Monday morning and back to the daily grind for us here. Will try to rest later on when the kid is in school.
