Let the Merge begin

If there is anything I learn about blogging... it is very complicated and getting complicated every single moment without you knowing it.

Years ago I thought I am invincible. Managing 7 blogs all at the same time and blogging 5 posts per blog a day, seven days a week [with only bathroom breaks in between and microwaveable meals on the go]... I am super cyber human! So I thought.

But Nah! The long hours of staying in front of the computer took a great toll on my vision. The long days of sitting on an already beat-up swivel chair took a toll on my aching back. And the longer hours of working my brains off to come up with ideas finally took a heavy toll on my sanity. And getting a day job didn't help either. So, I slowed down. Then I totally slacked off and finally lost track of my blogging. This caused me big time!

The fact that I lost my domain on one of my precious blogs finally knocked some sense on my tired brains. It hurts so bad. You see, RBS and I has a special relationship. We have a special kind of bond. It picked me up when I was down. It made me laugh when I was sad. It gave me money when I was broke [quite literally if you are wondering]. And for just 2 words I lost RBS... auto-renew! Darn it!

Oh well, what should I do. There is no sense in crying over lost domain. I need to move on but first... I NEED TO MOVE IN.

Yes, Ruthi's breathingSpace has a new HOME. The Carpenter's Wife gave a space in her Tool Box for RBS. YAY!!! Now, I can keep my sanity intact. YAY again!

Now, let me welcome you to the New Blog Series that will be featured here every MONDAY [drum roll, please]... the Ruthi's breathingSpace: The Blog Series.

Yup, it's now official! We are hosting a New Blog Series here in my TOOL BOX and hoping that you will find it as interesting as my other ones... Letters to Hubby, my AMERICA, and Maine Attraction.

This blog series aims to put bits and pieces of Ruthi's breathingSpace website which was shattered by "auto-renew" fate. LOL. The RBS will still exist as an entirely separate and independent website own and manage by the same Author [a.k.a. Yours Truly] but is now free hosted by blogspot.

RBS: The Blog Series will only publish 2 [for now] different sub-blog series namely My Philippines and It's-A-Craft. Proper identification of the said sub-blog series will be determined by the LOGO it bears at the end of the post.

So yes, I am moving on because... everybody needs a space and a breather because life is too short not to blog.


This POST is a special write-up for Ruthi's breathingSpace: The Blog Series
which is published every MONDAY.

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…
