Weekend Fixes

The weekend is a busy day for working wives like me. We only had 3 and half school days because Thursday was an early released day at the school where I work. And the following day was "the in-service training day" for the teachers. However, I still had to work because I have a second job. So no long weekend vacation for me. hayyy!

I thought I will be lucky to take the Friday off but with 55 kids signed up for the full-day care at Sanford, I had to drive 30 miles to go to work. Hayyy. I was hoping to have the Friday off so I will be able to do my regular chores and take Saturday as a special day to do the bathroom floor tiles. Well, help Hubby to fix the bathroom floor tiles, rather. wink**

Heavy traffic during rush hours to use the most popular spot in the house is starting to take a toll on the bathroom floor tiles. If it is any consolation to me, it's knowing where to get quality and reasonable ceramic tiles and yes, having a carpenter hubby to boot. So today, we did the bathroom flooring and it didn't take us long to fix it. Now I am ready to go for a run. wink*

Oh gosh the bathroom...bring back bad memories of hiring a company to fix the two in our house. They messed it up pretty bad, but they didn't have e and o insurance to cover their screw up so we got them to give us some of our money back. love your blog btw!

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…
