Watching Sunset with Hubby

As I already mentioned in my previous post... I work on weekends now too. Given the situation, Hubby and I spend less time together. Oh, how I miss him so much. But today, for some reason we got the chance to be together and spent even just a few hours watching the sunset.

Dearest Sweetest,
It's been a long time since I last wrote you a letter. Well, there is nothing very important that I really want to tell you right now. It's just that I miss you so much.
I miss our weekends at the mountain. Even if I whined a lot... I had to admit I miss camping and gold panning with you.
I miss our movie nights on weekends. It's been a long time since we last watched a movie. I think the last movie we watched was "The Princess and the Frog". hahaha It is now on DVD and Blu-ray. 
And most importantly, I miss our Chinese dining out too. Though we still eat Chinese on Friday nights, I miss trying out different Chinese Restaurants every weekends.
Well, I cannot complain now. We need to do what we have to. I need to work so we need to sacrifice some few things we love to do. And tonight is indeed a wonderful night. I am so happy that even for a few hours were were able to have supper together while watching the sunset. And I enjoyed it so much.
I love you and I still miss you.

Your Sweetie

So today, we shared a KFC diner "to go" and drove to Sebago Lake scenic view parking lot and had supper inside our car... watching the sunset.

Oh I love the love letter, Ruthi. So sorry you don't have time for your husband right now. I used to also work on the weekends and couldn't cope so I stopped. That was when my husband was working nights so like you, we had very little time together then. It's difficult and I'm sure you miss your weekends where you can rest all morning on a Saturday. I hope you keep healthy, working 7 days a week is no joke. Take care, dear Ruthi. :)

Hi Ruthi, this makes me miss my time with my SO too. We don't have time together anymore. With T around, we are like robots, just get things done, and go to bed. Then wake up and do the same things after day. Maybe I can borrow your letter and send to my SO too? LOL

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…
