We only had 22 nights to go before Christmas and until now I am not so sure what to tell hubby about his Christmas present will be like for me. Well, he is so insistent that it would be better to ask me instead of what I want than giving him a problem. If you know him well, he is a busy man and helping him do my part is very much appreciated. He gives me three choices and those are an Iphone phone, a bangle from gemstone rings from Reeds.com or another watch. Honestly, I like all of them. He smiled at me and reminded that he can only give one gift this month and nothing else since we have things to consider as well. Actually, seeing him healthy is enough for me. I am just so happy that he is reaping the fruits of his labor and I cannot believe how things go well like this month. I only pray that he will be given guidance to choose what is right and just.
Hahaha! We are not sleepy so we make our boring time in trying videoke during our break time. We come up making our own music video with our choice of music until our boss arrived and we were caught singing with our mouth wide open. It was really shameful. He made a sign language to let us know how loud it was outside. Hahaha! I can’t believe it. Well, we know that he doesn’t like loud music and I guess most especially that I am out tuned. I admit, but we do not know that he will be early. We just love to sing during lunchtime. Huhuhu. This is it. Are we doomed? Well, I just let you know. My officemate is getting ready to submit is resignation if ever. Hahaha.. He is just joking.
Until now I did not forget what happened this morning. We passed by a dog pound chasing one cute dog trying to escape, but to no avail the animal was taken. It reminds me of our neighbor’s dog that is so close to our hearts. Even hubby misses it as well as he keeps on asking me if the dog is around already. The owner just let it roam around our subdivision and one neighbor informed that maybe the dog pound was liable of the dog’s immediate loss.
Our dog, Bruno, is usually left alone in the house during weekdays. Bruno eating schedule are in the morning and the other is in the evening. Temporarily he is placed in our auxiliary kitchen since he is too small to be left outside the house and may escape through our fence. Hubby commented that we will give him one more month because he believes that by then he is a little bit big and he is safe to be placed outside. He just advised me to buy another needs for Bruno at Sporting Dog Pro to replace his current puppy stuffs. I know that he will be alienated first on his new environment, but I know he can immediately adjust.
Amidst of the consecutive misfortune happening in our country I am still hopeful that all things will come into place. From the Napoles to Zamboanga siege to Bohol earthquake and down to typhoon Haiyan, Filipinos were given so much that we could not imagine. For me it is too much and I know how sad these things to us Filipinos much more to our president who want the best for everything. I am not taking sides here, but I can see how hard it is for everyone who tries to address all the needs quickly. To some, it is easy especially when it comes to saying it, but logistically it’s hard. Admit it we are not ready. Shipping will take days and airport runways suffered a lot too, it shows helicopters are the best way to reach the place if someone wants a faster transportation, however it will just carry small things that will not accommodate all. I am just so happy now that the victims are starting to receive reliefs these days after many days of waiting. This is a sign of improvement and we should be happy about it than using our productive time bashing all day. It is not helpful and will create a worse scenario especially that some are talking against the government and just a personal opinion that they got from unfair rumors without a basis. Let us not hate what we do not understand. Let us just spread love instead. It is what our country needs this time.
Hey! It’s Monday once again and as usual I see it as another week of surprises. Naturally, it’s a usual day for me hoping that my week would be pleasant and try to be nice as much as I could. Well, last week was very sad. Apart from typhoon “Yolanda”, my friend’s mother died unexpectedly.
Anyway, if you wonder if my relatives are okay after “Yolanda’s” visit, well, they are. However, my friend’s brother is still out of reach. She is considering visiting Leyte as soon as possible, but she is worried about the new storm that will hit Mindanao soon since she will leave her children if ever. I hope her brother and his family are okay. She is very frustrated that some parts of Leyte have no reports yet until now. I really understand why our president displays frustration as well. I hope that the upcoming typhoon “Zoraida” that will hit Mindanao soon will not cause so much damage especially with our Cavendish bananas. I am praying that it will not be like typhoon “Pablo”. Fingers-crossed.
I’m sure you will agree with me how time flies so fast. I cannot imagine that that we are able to ignore the time because we are busy making our everyday lives memorable, right? Anyway, hubby gave me a task that I find it very interesting. They will be dressing up like in the 70s on their Christmas party this year. Honestly, I was surprised since hubby does not love to dress up especially if it is not a casual wear, but this year is very different. Well, he is right. It only happens once in a year so he is giving it a try. I have many things in mind now and I want to make sure that he will feel comfortable wearing what I will want to wear for him.
Their venue for this year’s party will at the “The View”. He happily shared it to me since it is one of the places we chose during our pre nuptial pictorial a year ago. He loves the place and for him he will not worry about ambiance even if it will be an outdoor event. If you all knew hubby hates warm location because he easily gets sweat so that explains all. Since it is an outdoor event he hopes that audio is good unlike before. Well, hubby was asked again to give an inspirational speech and he wants that everyone will hear the message. I told him that it would be better that their organizing body will choose a nice audio system having electro-voice amplifiers at musicians friend for example. I am very sure they will not be frustrated since it is known to deliver good quality when it comes to giving good audio. As for me, I am weighing if I will attend our Christmas party this year since I heard it will be scheduled on a Sunday morning.
It is actually the same day today when I joined my current company 11 years ago. I still remember that I am forced to walk to the office because there is no transportation available in the village where my company is located. I was troubled then because it was almost 8:00 o’clock and I need to be on time so I have to walk quickly. I remember that the boys were the friendliest that time because the girls were angry that I replaced their friend who happens to be terminated by my boss. Actually, I was warned then not to befriend with the girls so that I will not be like them. It was really funny, yet afraid that they may fight back. Good thing that all of the boys were very friendly and make sure that I will not be left alone. Days passed until the girls tried to reach me out. I never imagined that they will be my friends, but still the same I have to watch my actions if my boss is around since he hates when he sees me loitering with them. I have to return to our department and stay until 1:00 o’clock.
Eleven years of staying in our company is full of memorable moments. It is where I gained another family (Saging Friends) and met hubby who happens to be my best friend as well. I can say that probably my half-life will be spent here and continue to learn more about life. I have no regrets and I owe it to God what I have become now. Cheers to my 11th year!
I got this message from a friend and I want to share it with you:
An umbrella cannot stop the rain,
but it allows us to stand and walk in
FAITH in the Lord may not remove
our trials, but it gives us strength
to overcome them.
Indeed, Life in God is not a storm-free,
So always Bring an umbrella of faith with
For the very first time I was not able to practice my right today. Well, hubby didn’t allow me to vote primarily because he heard that there is a threat. Honestly, I am very frustrated, but since he asked me to follow him today I am left with no choice. Seeing elderly people and those people who are disabled find time to vote and I’m left here feeling sorry for myself. I haven’t heard about the threat, but hubby told me about his connections. An Aquarian like me will not allow someone to dictate me of something I didn’t like. Today is different. Am I mature already or I respect hubby’s position as head of the family? Oh my! I am really a married person now hubby reminded me. (LOL) Hahaha!
Yep, I’m home alone. I decided to take a leave since I still have remaining sick leave to consume. I do not mind if it will lessen my conversion because resting for two days is a different story. Well, hubby wanted me to stay in the house to finally recover from my flu. He believes that I am having a hard time recovering because my work stresses me as well. Well, I guess primarily we are busy on our upcoming IMS audit next week and my boss is bound to visit Japan to attend a business event next weekend. Naturally, I am tasked to give him our market details and a report of The Japan banana market. So maybe that is why. I still have many days to prepare. If I allow myself to be hysterical like them I guess I’ll have another ailment. (HB) I’d rather rest first and faces them after I recover maybe it will help and I’ll be fulfilled as well.
