Staycation it is

I am having a blast this summer. I am finally having a vacation or shall I say - STAYCATION since I am going nowhere this year.

So this year, no travels or trips to far away places scheduled for me nor for my Sweetest. Well, as for my Sweetest, I can't tell if we are not really going nowhere since he can change his mind anytime soon so we'll see.

Surprisingly, he has not mentioned the letter "C" and the letters "G and P" since the start of summer. Normally we would be up north already around this time camping and gold panning. But I am not complaining. I love just staying home for now and organizing.

Yup, I started organizing the following day the school ended and I am still organizing and not even half-way through. Boy... I never thought it will take this long.

It's only July and I still have more than one month and a half of vacation left before school starts again so I am taking my time. There are lots of things I want to do right now like running...

bonding with my friends...
and blogging. Did I say blogging?

Well, I am trying my best to keep up with how much time I have on my hand right now because my 12 hours work swift is over - for now. Though I do have a part-time summer job which I so love and enjoy because it's only 3 and 1/2 hours a day and only 3 days a week and I don't feel that I am working at all not because of the hours but because of the people I work with. It's like we are just there to play and meet up with friends. Too bad it will only run for 4 weeks.

So this "staycation" is something I am enjoying now though I do want to go places other than Maine. I do want to go to NY to see Ms. Liberty or Ms. Joey in LA. but I need to stay put for now. Maybe next time.
But for now I just enjoy my free time with my Sweetest even if it is always hot and humid here in Maine.

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…
