The Day I Thought I will Miss Christmas

I am still not in the mood for blogging! My mind is still not functioning well the way it used to. And I am not so psyched up to do anything just yet.

A couple of week’s back I had so many ideas in mind to discuss on my posts across my 9 blogs. I know I have a lot of backlog on my posts due to a lot of things but I never worry about it because I know too that I can easily spring back up without a problem. But something came up that obstructed my mind frame and I am so bummed out. I am still in shocked due to the recent mishaps that happened to me and my hubby.

I know I owe everyone [at least you my loyal friends who kept coming here and checking on me and my blog] an explanation for my long absence from blogosphere. I'm really sorry for not delivering the goods well on time [whatever that means]. As a serious blogger I know I have an obligation to my passion and my audience.

Of course I have an alibi… a valid one. I had an almost fatal car accident! I almost missed Christmas this year! I almost totally and absolutely would have stopped blogging... for good!

The last photo of my baby before the accident.

My 8-month old baby is gone now. And this is how she looks after that accident. She was hauled away by the towing truck to her final resting place at Moody's and was pronounced "total lost" by the insurance company the following day... giving us enough notice to look for a replacement.

Christmas is the time for thanksgiving and it never really made that great of an impact on me than this year. This Christmas I am so grateful that I was able to celebrate it again with my loved ones.

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…
