Spring Feelings

Yey! It's already Spring. Technically! Tomorrow is the official date for Spring and I am having a blast. The weather is lovely... 60 degrees... clear blue sky... spring-ish ambiance... snowless grounds... and spring-y scented breeze... what else could I ask for?

Well, I am still not over with Hubby's drama over the weekend and I am writing a letter to him right now. It has nothing to do with spring... the spring mood added some twist to my feelings right now though.

Dearest Sweetest,

Firstly, I want to apologize for being so mean to you last week. Though I can blame it to PMS... I will not use it as an alibi. I felt so guilty because I know I hurt your feelings. We argued a lot in the past on almost everything and I know that it's normal in any relationship. We do have conflicts every now and then due to different points-of-view or simply difference in cultural background and orientation. But last Friday... we had another argument and it turned ugly. I didn't expect your reaction because it was the first time that you didn't say anything or contradict what I was saying or even argue. You just kept quiet and let me speak my mind with no reservation. It was the very first time too that I saw you shed tears and still didn't say anything to defend yourself. I didn't know what to do when I saw your reaction so I just shut up because I knew it was the right thing to do then.

I wasn't able to sleep good that night thinking how bad I hurt your feelings and how cruel my words were to make you cry. I didn't even have the chance to apologize... say sorry because I was so ashamed of myself because normally when you hurt my feelings you were quick to make it up to me and say "sorry" instantly. I was really mean. I didn't even try to make it up to you. But I was surprised that you were able to forgive me even if I didn't ask for forgiveness. You were even sweeter to me when I got home the following day as if nothing happened and you even washed my laundry and folded them. And you do know how important it was to me. It was "huge" because you never have done that since we got married and you know that I was b*tching about it all the time. And we didn't even talk about the previous incident at all.

I don't know about you but I am just so glad that you are now beginning to see things in my perspective. I am so happy that despite the fact that you are kinda stubborn, you are doing your best to change and do the things you hate to do because you know that it will make me happy. And I do appreciate it.

And I appreciate how you made my birthday so special. I do appreciate the gift but more importantly... I love what you did in presenting the gift. The gift is kinda expensive and I didn't like it. Just for that part. I would be happy just for doing my dirty clothes and folding them was a big bonus. And that gift... it will surely spark another argument in the future due to budget issues... hahahaha but I will try to control myself this time and figure it out how to speak my mind without losing my self-control.

I'm really sorry Sweetest if I drive you nuts lately. I really don't mean to. But even if I do remember that I love you always. And don't ever forget that especially when I am PMS-ing. WINK***

Your Sweetie

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…
