What’s Up Wednesdays #11

Pleasant greetings to you all on this Wednesday night.  I’ve been so preoccupied for the last few days that I literally have to stay up and unwind via my blog so that mentally I can get to sleep more peacefully.

This week on What’s Up Wednesdays I’m going to keep it short and sweet. I have just finished packing my suitcase for our relaxation and fun adventure as a family at a resort in Trinidad.  It’s the first time we staying there so we’re all anxious.  I for one I’m tired but I can’t leave you guys without an update.

So please excuse my summarized version.

What I’m eating this week:

For dinner, I kept it really simple and had Chinese food – noodles, chunky vegetables and Chinese style chicken.   Unfortunately, this chef did not prepare my dinner.  I wonder if it would have tasted better if he did. 🙂

What I’m reminiscing about: 

At the moment, nothing!  I’m too focused on the future. 🙂

What I’m loving:

I’m happy to say that roughly 60% of my home improvement projects have been completed thus far. The contractors we hired came highly recommended and I’m pleased to say they did not disappoint and were worth every penny. I’m praying for similar results from the next contractor who should hopefully be starting when I get back.  Keeping my fingers crossed and saying my prayers. 🙂

What I’ve been up to:

Being the appointed Project Manager of my home improvement project I’ve been busy liaising, negotiating and supervising contractors to make sure the different projects got completed on time and to a high standard.  It had some challenging moments like cleaning up, reorganizing and the noise but that was the extra price we paid for progress. 🙂

What I’m dreading:

This stress induced acne.  Yes, since all of talk of the impending projects I noticed my skin started flaring up which is not the norm for me.  I’m taking care of my skin (cleanse, tone and moisturize) and trusting that it would calm down as soon as I do so say a prayer for me.  Thanks in advance. 🙂

What I’m working on:

Seriously, packing my bags and getting out of here. 🙂

What I’m excited about:

Getting to mentally and physically unwind. 🙂

What I’m watching:

I’ll be honest with you, the Koala has not moved from the sleeping position in the tree since you saw it last week.  Don’t worry it’s not dead just very tired.  Sorry to report that my television viewing days is at a stand still at the moment.  I literally just run errands, supervise the workmen, tidy my house, eat, bathe and sleep after trying to squeeze in a few posts when I can.

Who/ What I’m listening to:

After my long days I need music. Tonight I’m listening to Bamboleo by Gipsy Kings.

What I’m wearing/ Let’s Go Shopping:

What I’m doing this weekend:

Spending some relaxation time with the family.  So I would not be posting Health and Wellness Friday this week.  I should be back and posting again by Monday.  Hope you understand. The body needs what it needs and I have every intention of complying. 🙂

Okay so I’m feeling really sleepy now. So I’m going to cut it short. Much love you guys.  Thanks for supporting my blog, reading and commenting.  I really do appreciate it.

Until next week stay blessed not stressed. I look forward to catching up with you guys next week. Bye for now.

  1. Hello Aleeha, stress acne can make life even more stressful. I’m happy to report that since my mini vacation that my skin has started clearing up and I’m intent on keeping it that way.

    Exam stress is no different. I’ve been there and until it is all over you’re just kind of there anxious, nervous and sometimes just frustrated because you just want it over before it has even begun. Be sure to take care of your skin, drink lots of water and try to get rest. Sleep during exam time is almost always scarce as we study, review and test ourselves to make sure we’re ready.

    Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Have a great day!
