A Busy Weekend for Mommy Ginger!

I was surprised that today is actually the last day of the month of February. This month went by so swiftly. It was especially fast this week. It actually started moving so fast during the weekend. I was so busy during the past weekend. I was so busy from the Friday last week, where we at Manila Workshops had the first run of the Tax and Accounting Workshop (Topic was Ignored Business Costs) which was followed by the second session the next day (February 22), which was Taxes — Key things that you should know!

Tax -- Key things that you should know!

That Saturday, the Manila Workshops team had to split into three since we had four workshops during that day. We had the Baby Nutrition and Dental Care Workshop in the morning. I had the time to go to Medela House in the morning to see how things were. We even had our family photo taken at the photo booth which was set up by Lotte Xylitol.

Although I wasn’t able to stay for the afternoon session, I would like to thank all of you who attended the Delivery and New Born Care session. I got to look at the pictures and I’m very thankful that a lot of you supported this workshop. I heard from Donna that the venue was jam packed!

I’d like to thank our sponsors, too, for the Delivery and New Born Care workshop. Thank you for supporting, Stemcord Philippines (as always!). Thank you also to Cradle, Cycles, Cycles Sensitive, St. Patrick, Mommy Treats, Babies To Toddlers, King Sue and Beginnings. For those asking about the next run of the Delivery and New Born Care workshop, the next one will be on September 27, so watch out for that 🙂

What I completely missed is the WAHMderful Life first Mastermind Class which was held at Mothercare Active Fun. I totally missed it because I had to set up for the Tax and Accounting Workshop. The topic for the first Mastermind class was How to Have the Heart of a wAHM. To those who expected it to be a workshop, masterminds actually have a different format. It’s really more of an intimate get together and sharing of thoughts. There is no speaker, but we are there mostly to facilitate the discussion. Martine was the first ‘facilitator’.

Sunday was also a busy day for me. It usually is “just” Saturdays when I am booked with events and meetings, but last Sunday really started early. We (my family) woke up at 6 to accompany me to UP where I had a meeting with the STEPS PROJECT Team. I haven’t written about this advocacy yet, but I will introduce you to it this week. We had a team meeting as we were launching the advocacy this week.

Just stayed in UP for just two hours since I had to rush to Podium to set up for the first run (a lot of first runs this weekend) of the Money Smart Kids Workshop. I was really excited for this workshop. It was our first time to have children as the attendees. We would normally have the moms and dads, so I was really excited.

To check out the photos from this workshop, please visit our Facebook album:

The workshop was fun and I hope the kids enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed setting it up. Fitz and I really appreciate the time the parents and the kids took out from their Sunday “family time” schedule to be with us. We thank you too for your feedback and please do look forward to improvements and a better workshop for the next run!

Well, that was my weekend. It was pretty tiring! It actually continued on to this week, but that’s another story. How about you? How was your week? TGIF!
