No Chinese Tonight because I did the Grocery

Hubby came home a little late from work, tired and sore. I feel a little guilty because it supposed to be a Chinese night tonight because it's a Friday but I was so tired from work too so I didn't stop at my favorite Chinese Restaurant to buy his favorite A8 menu. I was just planning to heat up some left-over but Hubby just had a bowl of cereals so I had some chips and salsa.

Hubby had his bowl of cereals in bed. He complained about his knees and back [as usual] so I rubbed them with his magic ointment after his meal. After few minutes he already passed out and snored his way to dreamland.

I wish we had a few more minutes to talk how our days were but... well, I will just write it down here and hope that he will read it tomorrow.

Dearest Sweetest,

I went to do the grocery today... a day earlier because I remember you told me the other day that you wanted to go ice-fishing over the weekends. I am so excited to go. I know you have your fishing license since December but you have not gone fishing since you got it because you don't want to spend so much on bait and gas on ordinary fishing day. You want to save that for the Derby that you know I look forward to.

I went to do the grocery today... instead of tomorrow because you don't have any more milk in the fridge. I know you need your glass of milk and Oreo cookies every night even if you blame me for gaining weight. Well, I just can't afford not to include Oreo cookies in my grocery list because I just love the way you dunk the cookie in the glass counting seconds before you put it in your mouth. Good thing they come up with a "reduced fat" kind.

I went to do the grocery today... because I don't want to get out of the bed early tomorrow to do the grocery. Instead I want to stay longer in bed with you cuddle up and not worrying about chores. And yes I am also hoping that you will make me BREAKFAST in bed since I made you SUPPER in bed. Wink*

Good night, my Sweetest. I'll see you tomorrow... same bed... one blanket... new morning.

Your Sweetie

@Eng... Honestly, he doesn't read my blog. Sometimes I had to print a copy for him but since I ran out of ink in my printer... I bet he won't be able to read this. lol. And about the Chinese, I'm kinda sick of it now, you know having it every single Friday night. hahaha. Got to take a little break.

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…
