The Typical Wife

One of the challenges facing any blogger in this world wide blogosphere is coming up with new ideas to write about.

As a wife, I have many ideas but most of my ideas are not good enough for writing. I am a typical wife with lots of dirty laundry quite figuratively and literally speaking.

As a sensible wife, it is not descent to wash my dirty laundry in public, if you know what I mean. Well, my dirty laundry, figuratively speaking is not as dirty as the Jon-and-Kate-plus-8 circus extravaganza or as juicy as Brat-Pitt-Angelina-Jolie-high-profile spectacle.

As a carpenter's wife, my kind of dirty laundry, figuratively speaking, is just as simple as whining about the trash that Hubby always forgets to take out.

Well, I am a typical wife married to a typical guy. We live a typical life with all the typical perks and sides. We struggle like any typical couple trying to survive the typical economic crisis. We try to have fun together as typical Mainers enjoying what the typical Maine seasons can offer for fun. And most importantly, we love each other like typical people who treat each passing day like a typical day.


It's in the typical daily life that we make special memories and share our love!

I just wanted to thank you for leaving a comment at my post about my own kind. I am glad that I am not the only one who feels that way.

Happy weekday!!!

@Nedekcir... No problem. I feel the same way too and I did encountered the same incident in the past when I was still new here. Sad to say... those kind of people exist.

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…
