Seven, Seven, Seven, Seven

I don't do Math. I hate that subject when I was a student. But number "7" is very significant to me. My Sweetest and I got married on the 7th of July, 2007. Yesterday was our 7th year anniversary.

I can't believe that we have been together for 7 years now. Time flies so quickly. And with that, I can say that the 7 years of adjustment and acceptance will have to go on and on.
@Nova Scotia, Canada - Our 1st Wedding Anniversary

We don't celebrate our anniversary like normal people do. Well, we used to but as years passed by, it seems that it's just like another day. Just like when you are having another birthday when you reach the age of denial. LOL
And this year, I just bought him a card from the store when I went to buy milk. I also threw in a box of cheap chocolate to make it fancy. wink* 

I think I'm having another Alzheimer's mode. I was having a hard time writing a personal letter to him like I used to. That is why, I just bought the card and this is what it said.
Well, this is pretty much what I want to tell him anyway. Everything that I feel and would like to tell him is already written up on a nice paper with drawing. It may not be very romantic like a personal note written from the heart but I know he did appreciate it.
 And as for me, I got two bouquets of flowers. I put them together in one vase.
And enjoying the sight of them from my window.

Dearest Sweetest,

Thank you for the 7 years of unconditional love. Thank you for the patience and the faith in me. Thank you for not giving up and continually trusting in the power of our love for each other. And most importantly, thank you for finding me.

Here is for another 7 years of bliss, of trials, of love, of devotion, of faith with each other. Let's just take 7 years at a time for our love for each other is 7 times 77.

I love you more than you ever know.

Your Sweetie.

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…
