Few Minutes Bonding with Hubby

I came home from work today hoping that I could take an early nap because I didn't get enough sleep last night. Oh well, it was CSI: Miami night so hubby and I stayed up passed our bedtime.

As I drove our icy driveway, Hubby's truck was still there so I was assuming he was home. I heard the sound of an engine running by the shed outback so I knew he was there messing up with the snowmobile. And I was right. After a few minutes I heard the motor roaring and there he was cruising in the snow covered backyard.

I was already preparing for my beauty sleep when he barged into the bedroom and asked if I want to go snowmobiling. I was like… "are you kidding me?". I was bundled up in seconds. Well, he knows I love snowmobiling. It's as if, he was asking a little girl if she wants a candy.

I was cruising in the backyard.... at 10 miles per hour. Geez, my arms were sore so I was having a hard time maneuvering the big boy. After few minutes I gave up. Hubby then took over and we went around the woods to check some deer tracks outback.

For few minutes, I had fun with Hubby before he finally left for work. After he left... I did some Math... Snowmobile= $7,000.00; First Gear = $175.95; Gas = $2.96; Few minutes with Hubby = PRICELESS! Spending quality time with him is indeed something precious now considering that we seldom find time for each other due to our busy schedule.


Ang sweet naman ;) thats really good Sis. It is very important na my time kayo for each other kahit na busy pa. dyan nagiging mas strong ang bonding nyo ;)
I never went snowmobiling but it sure looks fun and something I would do if I ever had the chance. I know what you mean about spending some fun time with the hubby--work sure gets in the way of that!

I never realized snowmobiles cost that much! Seems like a lot of money to me.

@Lamielle... Yes I agree with you Amiga.

@Karen... yes, work can really take so much of our time away from each other. and yes, snowmobile is really very expensive and it was bought about 4 years ago. it is more expensive now.

I've not tried the snowmobile, looks like fun! Would love to try it one day. You are right, time with a loved one = PRICELESS! Beautiful thoughts, Ruthi!

@Tes... you are right... snowmobiling is really fun especially if i am driving it in an open space like the frozen lake... i can go fast. and time with my hubby is really priceless considering his work schedule.

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…
