Not well.

I haven't been feeling well in the past week. I've got a hacking cough and about one tonne of phlegm (TMI? hehe) which I can't cough out. Doctor gave me a drowsy medicine, so I've not been taking it religiously. Hopefully, with the weekend around the corner, I will take it 3x a day!

In addition to that, I sprained my back muscle trying to carry R the other day. I have since been nursing a sore back, so that means, no golf for now, and no bending at the waist either! The back is much better now, but after prolonged periods of sitting/standing, the ache will return.

I guess all this is part of growing old. I can't believe how time flies. C will be going to Pri 1 next year, and she'll soon be a pre-teen. 2007 seems to have just started, but in the blink of an eye, it will be October next week.

I've also been hooked on Facebook which is really fun if you've nothing else to do. I've found some old friends on it, and it's really interesting how it links everyone to everyone else. It's really quite a small world out there!

Some things I'm looking forward to:

1) Some good ol' retail therapy at Marks & Spencer and VivoCity.

2) Shopping for the kids' winter clothes at Mothercare.

3) Catching a movie (881?)

4) Watching tonight's episode of 'Metamorphosis' and 'Ghost Whisperer'

5) Sleeping in beyond 6.30 am! (sleeping with meds is a really good feeling!)

6) Hopefully squeezing in an early morning swim here. The kids just love the lazy river!

Yay! It's less than half a day to Saturday now! :)

Winter in Korea!

Yesterday, we booked our air tickets to Korea! It'll be the beginning of winter when we get there, and I'm already feeling the winter chills just thinking about it!

We plan to spend a few days in Seoul, and a couple of days at a nearby ski resort and Everland, it'll mainly be a trip for the kids to experience winter and snow, and for us to chill out (literally or otherwise!)

If you've any 'lobangs' where to rent/buy nice winter clothes for adults and kids, have recommendations on where to go in Seoul, or can speak Korean, please let me know!

Finally we're doing it! Our garage sale will be held this weekend (15 & 16 Sept) at my place.

Date/Time: Saturday (2-5pm) and Sunday (10 am-5pm)
Venue: Seletar Hills area (TVC customers will know! If you wanna come but not sure, email me or leave a comment)
What's on sale: Toys, books, golf sets, miscellaneous stuff.

A note - many of the toys on sale will be in great condition. As a parent, I've been overindulgent. I feel much better now my kids' cupboards are so much neater with these toys gone and much neater. If you know of a children's home who would appreciate some of these toys, please let me know.

Hope to see you!
