10 inches and adding

Ten inches of snow! Are you kidding me?

I woke up this morning to a white background again. Snow storm! I didn't have a clue until I had to get up and took my first trip to the bathroom.
I have not left the house since yesterday. I was officially on house arrest since then. I don't know. I am sick, maybe? I am sick of a disease called... laziness. I am sick and tired of this weather. I can't do much and I am too lazy to get dress and drive around.
On the lighter note... at least I have more time for blogging and updating my blogs... catching up with friends online... facebooking... crawling in bed... doing the laundry... eating... eating... and eating. There goes my one and only New Year's Resolution! Thanks to snow storm.
After breakfast which Hubby cut out this morning by the way, I had the urgency to check my phone. Unfortunately, I didn't even realize that I left my phone in the car last Saturday. So Hubby was forced to do the plowing job right away to get the phone in my car instead of staying in front of the TV watching his favorite channel.
This is Maine! Welcome to my world!

oh, i do understand why you have lazyitis, Ruthi, I remember when I was still in CT, whenever it snows, my friends don't go out of the house! Whenever I ask anyone to go out, they would reply, "are you crazy? the road is too dangerours and we can not drive far anyway because the traffic is bad because of all snow delay on the road!", so i would reply, "let us walk then", but no one wanted to walk with me, so oftentimes, I was alone then walking to the lake when there was snow storm since I felt crying whenever am alone inside the house ( was still single then).

@Betchai... seriously? You would go hiking in the middle of a blizzard? I bet it felt terrible. The first time I went out in the middle of a blizzard was when I went snowmobiling with hubby to get pizza. hahahaha. I thought it was fun then because it was my first winter.

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…
