In the past there was no such a thing, but these days they've put this "exchange book corner" in which people can grab any book(s) they want with the hope that they'll trade them with other book(s) that they own. The empty space has been put to good use as I've been piling up new books that I haven't read yet (chuckle). I'm a bad reader. I tend to switch from one book to another and who knows when I'll finish reading them all LOL!!! Some of them are unread, though. I LOVE collecting books even though that means I may not read them yet LOL!!!
I'm still PMSing and still feeling a bit conflicted inside every now and then (esp. when I read news about my friend's morning sickness issues and the other mommy friends got to share their own morning sickness experiences - felt like being left out when a group of friends were playing together). Just now I received an email with the title "27 weeks" and I felt a jolt inside. I thought, "Another pregnant woman?" Turned out that no, it wasn't the case. It was a false alarm. Phew!
Yep. The green eyed-monster of jealousy has arisen, though thankfully it's not blinding me. It's just a tiny little monster, but I know it's out there. One thing I tried to do the other day is to turn each jealous thought into a ball and then I (the superhero in my imagination) got to kick the ball into outer space, where it was swallowed by this giant black hole (I had to do this whenever the ball came out to play). Is this helping? I think so. :-)
Another thing that helped was exercising and doing punching and kicking movements with all my might (release all the negative energy, Amel!!!)...and feeling the lovely endorphins afterwards. :-) And yes, I looked like this fellow below when I was doing the exercise:
Let's just see how well I fare in this friend's pregnancy journey (and maybe in the future other close friends' pregnancies) where I get to read a lot of details and where I get to see lots of pics. I'll take it one day at a time. May God help me!!!
P.S. I know I'll feel better when my PMS is over. :-) In the meantime, though, I'll continue the imaginary battle and exercise regime.
