Blog Rebump, the Nth time around

You got that right!

I know. I know.

This is probably the Nth time I am going to reconstruct, revise, redesign, redo this blog and rethink if I want to continue blogging again.

I have no alibi. And I wasn't in hibernation mode either. I just lost the passion in blogging.

Probably, I reached the point when I feel that I don't want to do anything at all. Or maybe, I'm getting old.

It's a phase. It's not contagious (I hope). Though I think it's a disease that women my age are prone to acquire at some point in their lives.

So yes, here I am easing slowly back into blogging again. And just like before, I need to start afresh. I need new layout design to fit my new found enthusiasm for blogging. And hey, having done this multiple times... I guess I'm getting good at it.

"Getting good at fixing what is not broken.".

Anyway, there are a few things that will surely be significant with this "not-so-new-blog" of mine. If some of you remember (I was hoping that I still have some of you - my loyal blog followers) I own about 7 blogs in total. Well, that is no longer true. I have lost 5 of them and now down to 2.

That is mainly the reason why I stopped blogging. I was overwhelmed by them. With 2 jobs and working 12 hours a day, time is my enemy.

This is the new old layout of The Carpenter's Wife's Tool Box

So now that I only have 2 blogs left, I am hoping that I will be able to maintain a good amount of blogging time and regain the momentum that I used to have when I started blogging 9 years ago.

And yes, my other blog will undergo a major facelift too soon.

This change will not be instant, I promise you. I have to come up with a plan to do this. And as of this writing, I don't have one. But I will get there.

Changing the layout is the start. I can see that in the next few days it will get where I want it to be. I am so excited to get back on writing and blogging again. And I am hoping that someday I will also find the time to finally publish a book that I have been dreaming of.

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…
