It's a lazy Sunday afternoon. Just got done with one online assignment for my other blog, when I peeked through the dashboard of Blogger and saw that I have 199 posts for this particular blog. I feel so sleepy but I can't sleep just yet. It's almost dinner time and I have got to heat up some left overs for dinner. I just made buco pandan dessert and our lemongrass juice right after lunch. I checked the fridge and I still have sauteed cabbage and sinigang na liempo leftovers for viands. These will do.

My weekend cleaning lady just got in early this afternoon to do some house cleaning, for which I am thoroughly thankful. I can't get right back to stressing myself doing all these chores. I have got to get back to my bouncy self. I still cough from time to time but none of those crazy ones I used to have.

Finishing the fourth book (Breaking Dawn) of the Twilight Series was bitter sweet. I almost marathoned to the fourth book from the first book. It is just an amazing series if you ask me, a genre all its own. I am currently reading Midnight Sun. This time the love story is told from Edward Cullen's perspective.

I just remembered the books of John Eldredge's books Sacred Romance and The Journey of Desire. The innate desire of every woman to be loved like there's no tomorrow and every man's quest to pursue the one he loves. Although God's love for us is nothing like Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen's love story, no vampire and half immortal stuff when it comes to God's love for me. But truth is, my Lord loves me more than how Edward can ever love Bella. The thought is just so sweet and the realization takes me back to reality of God's love for me. It may be the queerest thing, if anything at all, for other Twilight fanatics. But that's just how it all came down to me. Stephenie Meyer is a genius. I have felt the characters hearts beating through every chapter (although most characters barely have hearts that beat).

Edward to Bella after they reunited and Bella finally getting her 14 hours of sleep after the grueling time with the Vamps in Italy.

"Will you please try to hear what I'm telling you?
Will you let me attempt
to explain what you mean to me?"
He waited, studying my face as he spoke to
make sure I was really listening.
"Before you, Bella, my life was like a
moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—
points of light and reason…
And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly
everything was on
fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone,
when the
meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had
changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars
anymore. And
there was no more reason for anything."

It wasn't until this book comes to a close that the main characters got reunited. I cannot help but feel bad for Jacob, the sweet and young werewolf who fell unconditionally in love with Bella. Ok I'm not sure yet up to what extent. I will have to see in the sequel to this book. Oh my goodness! Whoever said that fairytales and these supposed horror movie characters could all make for a very romantic and engaging love story! :-)

I went to see my doctor yesterday. She told me that I definitely have some kind of respiratory infection from the cold virus and flu I had a couple of weeks back. I hope she knows what she's doing, because I got skeptical for a time. She did not even bother to have some lab tests done. She just listened to my chest through the stetoscope and that was it? Again, it's not surprising that she gave me another set of antibiotics. This time a stronger one. What difference is this one from the previous one? I am totally throwing away money on crappy medicines that are super expensive but does not make me well at all!

I know I'm ranting. Just allow me to rant just this once. So I need to get into bed most of the time. Fine. I got to bed as early as eight last night and I'm almost always in bed the whole day today, except at this very minute that I just got to let some ranting out.

For now I decided to take some natural medications Pei Pa Koa (the chinise meds) and BioEnzyme Plus. If this does not work by tomorrow, I will go buy the meds that were prescribed.

I finally got hold of the Twilight series e-book! I transferred it to my mobile and I am now reading like crazy that I cannot stop. Oh my goodness, I am just into the fourth chapter of Twilight and I have several inconsistencies from the movie. This is why a handful of friends who have read the book before watching the movie were disappointed while the hubby and I were so fine by the movie alone. The book is so much more interesting! :-)

I figured it was the same disappointment when I watched the Two Towers and The Return of the King sequels of the Lord of the Rings. Stepenie Meyer did a great job in writing this book. I am loving it and I have just started!
