Long Pause


July has been the busiest month for me every year. But this year’s has been so far the busiest. It is evidenced by the long pause in blogging I had for this month.

For one, my mother-in-law died on July 4th (bless her soul). That took out a lot of our time, interrupting our busy schedules and daily rituals. We had to rearrange appointments and schedules to give way to mourning. It nevertheless gave us an opportunity to unexpectedly commune again with family members, relatives, and friends.

On the academic side, July is the month when I have the biggest load in teaching – Medical Physiology and Clinical Anatomy. More lectures, more preparation, more time spent. Questions need to be prepared and test papers need to be checked.

As a mother and tutor to my kids, I am also spending more time with them. Their school has changed its curriculum for this school year. They removed the mid-quarter examinations leaving only the long quarterly examinations. And this means that they have to study regularly so that lessons will not accumulate and leave them cramming.

It’s good that Raymund can now study on his own. I just monitor his study habits and guides him on what area he needs more emphasis.

I’m more detailed on Ralph. I spend most of my time doing drills and sample test for him to answer. That serves as his reviewer. It helps me do my work at the same time while he answers. It also prevents me from talking too much and saves me lots of energy.

Anyway, I’m back! I hope to blog regularly.
