Multi-Tasking 101

I got mixed up with my blogging and chores. Before, chores are my main preoccupation and blogging is my hobby. Now that I am doing a-ok with my blogging and turn it into something more productive, it is now my main occupation and chores turned out to be my hobby.

Good thing about hobby is that… you don’t have to do it all the time. You don’t need to feel guilty when you do not do it. And you are not even accountable when you don’t do it at all. With blogging, you are bound to a greater responsibility. You are expected to do your best to get your ideas across. And you are even predictably all over the computer and the internet than you are all over the kitchen and your monumental laundry.

Mixing business with pleasure is good at times if your business is blogging and your pleasure is chores. But if you interchange the two, you are screwed up. You either end up as a burnt-out blogger or a harassed homemaker. I don’t say that you do blogging as seriously as I am. Actually I am only exaggerating here. I find joy in doing both. And since I am a multi-tasker, I do both blogging and chores at the same time [but only on those chores that you can leave without supervision like laundry and dish-washing]. I don’ know but if you are a SAHW like me, you need to innovate. You need to improvise. You need to do something creative so that you will not die of boredom.


Chores as a hobby sounds good to me!

Sometimes, I look around the house and am surprised at all the clutter. Then I take the time off from blogging to get rid of the clutter and get back to blogging! Chores are a "hobby" for me too, and not one I enjoy! :-D

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
