Football Season

One of the most awaited seasons here in Maine or perhaps for the whole United States, is Football Season. Well, I have to admit I don’t know anything about football. The game is not that popular from where I came from, basketball is. And even with basketball I know nothing about it too in terms of the technicalities and rules of the games. I am not the athletic type. I am more into indoor games because I hate getting sweaty. hahahaha

I was introduced to football by my Hubby. A typical American guy, he is a true-blooded football fan. And when it is football night, he monopolizes the remote so I don’t have any choice but to watch the game too. Eventually, I began to like the game. It didn’t take long for me to appreciate the game because it is exciting. Ultimately, I soon realized that I am beginning to be a real fan too and would watch the game way past my bedtime while Hubby was already snoring the night away. And I would also include in my grocery list some snacks [which I don’t usually do] for our football nights.

Well, it's the start of the football season and it's the start of hogging the remote. Hayys

Yes, I know nothing about football, but my husband watches sometimes. He is a Redskins fan. So now you and your husband will have something in common and can make date nights out of this! Ha ha!!

I never used to like football that much, but now I really like it. My wife on the other hand . . . loves it!!!

I have something to be thankful for, my SO and I don't even watch a bit of TV. Yay! Smiles.

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…
