a crazy rockstar weekend…

15 May 2007

Despite my wanna-be rockstar leanings, I don’t actually have a rockstar lifestyle. *gasp* But you all knew that. The past week, I actually had a semi-rockstar weekend complete with coming home at odd hours of the night, getting sick, passing out, and meeting random strangers! Oh. Yes.

Thursday, my band played at the Iron Monkey along with our friend’s band, Kilsy. We played at around 10:45 pm and it was a great show. Kilsy, however, totally rocked it as she usually does. Her band is just amazing. Our bands have played together a few times and it’s always a fun show. I was even kinda flirting with her drummer (well, flirting for me is saying “wow, you were great!” and then leaving. Ha!) Anyway, I recommend you check her out! By the time I got home, it was almost 2 am and of course, I had work the next day.

Then Friday night, I had to haul my tired-ass to dinner with Eileen Joy, a friend I met on-line back in the day. It was one of EJ’s last nights in the city. She just completed her Masters of Social Work degree and was headed back to Cali after her graduation. Congrats!! We all ate at Jeeb (where I had my 30th bday) and then went out for a quick drink afterwards. Well, I got a quick drink (and didn’t even finish $10 glass of Baileys on the rocks) and made a mad dash home. I got home at around 1 am, but I was dead-tired from the night before that I was slightly delirious by the time dinner came along. You know how lightheaded you get from lack of sleep? Right?? But I had a lot of fun catching up with EJ, Jason, Gail, and Anna. I really wish I could’ve stayed longer!

Congrats EJ!

So by Saturday, I just didn’t have any energy. However, my family and the hubs’ family all met up for brunch to celebrate Mother’s Day a day early. We had a good time eating Japanese food at Minado. Rockstar baby didn’t have fun though…

Mother's Day 2007

Saturday night, I met up with Analyse from France –making this my second “EB” with a fellow blogger. Ana was so cool and chic! She rocked a French accent with her English and Tagalog and we chatted about NYC, the babies, and how neat France is for subsidizing all her baby-related expenses. (Dang, Europe is the shit when it comes to maternity leave!). I really wish I got spend more time with her, but she was only in NYC for a hot minute. I did offer to be her tour guide for the next time she comes to visit.

Meeting another Blogger!

All this time though, rockstar baby has been sick. As in mucus-y coughing, continuous fevers, and a total loss of appetite. I was/am a mess. He’d be better and then revert back to being sickly. I took him to the doctor who put him on a nebulizer for his cough, but then his fevers still continued. He actually had a 100-degree fever when we went out to eat on Saturday! So the rest of the weekend was spent at home taking care of him. My mother’s day was crap since his fever went up even higher on Sunday and all he wanted to do was sleep and not eat. I have to literally force him to drink a bottle. Once again, he lost a few pounds and looks like a sickly little urchin. Argh.

Here he is managing a smile despite everything…

A sickly rockstar baby makes for a cranky rockstar mom. Yesterday, I came home early from work; he had a fever of 104 at the daycare (he had a normal temperature when I dropped him off, though). Luckily, I had already scheduled an appointment with his doc. So off we went to the doctor for the third time in less than 12 days. This time, he was diagnosed with bronchitis and was prescribed antibiotics. Hallelujah! So I took a half-day off and today off from work to help him recuperate.

I need to catch some ZZzzzzs. This rockstar lifestyle is making me sleepy.



  1. it would have been cool to meet up with you guys on saturday but i was also beat! anyway, i hope jacobus gets better soon!


  2. Jakey’s a trooper! Managing to smile through the ugly bronchitis. He’ll be better in no time. Hang in there, Kat!

  3. blogging from Analyse. Your blog is interesting. Mukhang ang saya saya ng mga pinoy dyan. Musta from France.

  4. hi there… hope rockstar baby gets well soon. It’s worrying how fast they can lose weight in a couple of days.

  5. Oh gosh, look at him! He’s so big already! Hope he feels better soon, Kat. And so are you.

  6. I love jakey’s porma. His tshirt is so cool, and even without the rockstar hairdo he still looks rock. Recuperate well from last weekend, Kat, cause Saturday’s just around the corner!

  7. Rockstar Baby is sooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!! Love the hair!

  8. Aww, Jake gets better soon and that you get some much needed rest!

  9. GIRLIE and TRISH: thanks! he’s definitely doing better! and Girlie, I only ended up meeting with her for like 20 mins.

    FRANCESCA:coucou! thanks so much for stopping by! do come again!

    AUEE:oh you said it! and it takes forever for him to gain a pound! it seems i gotta start over from scratch!

    KAI:thanks chica! and how are you doing?

    KALA:thanks! even if he’s sick, he still insists on wearing his cool kicks and clothes! ahhah.. he’s doing much better!

    TONI: aw thanks! it’s not spiky anymore though!

    KRISTINE:thanks so much! he’s def. recuperating!

  10. Hope jakey is bronchitis free now. I know how hard it is to hear his every cough. It took aj 2 months 2 gain back his weight after his 1week viral infection. Hope rockstar baby gets his weight back sooner. Take care! And belated hapi mom’s day.

  11. That is so nice that you met Analyse. I hope I can also meet you too when I will visit some of my family in NY soon.

  12. RS Baby is growing up so fast! And he did lose some LBs… but he is still oh so adorable.

    Hahaha… funny you mentioned drummers! I so have a thing for drummers. hehe and I adore your definition of flirting. hehehe

    I guess the most ideal form of the rockstar lifestyle is jetsetting… Man, if I only had the means…

    I have yet to do my first blogger EB. That sounds like fun.

    Hope RS Baby is feeliing better. (and hope you’ve recuperated from sleep deprivation) 🙂

  13. not having an actual rockstar lifestyle is not bad at all. can you imagine not getting sleep everyday? sleep tight!

  14. kat, i got so tired just reading this entry. crazy weekend nga!

    i hope jakey’s gotten better 🙂
