I got home a little early today. I needed to cut two hours because I was two hours over. They don’t want to pay me overtime. It was Dada who kept me up last night. It always worries me when I don’t see him home yet especially this time of the year when the weather is really bad. When he is home, we always talk about how his work and mine. So that explains why I was a little tired today. After the quick nap, I didn’t got up right away. I was listening to Papa and Frankie singing the karaoke outside. I noticed how Frankie had mastered quiet a few songs and most of all I noticed how much he adores his tatay. They are our treasures.
The year 2009 had brought us a lot of wonderful blessings and opportunities. Ryan and I had been very productive this year. The year 2009 brought us :
We welcomed two of Frankie’s cousins from both sides. Baby Gadi and Baby Aidan.
I am so thankfully to have made up my mind and decided go back to school after a few years of not being in school, but this time with a purpose. I will finish what I started. I know I still have a long way to go, but I will get there. Dada and I went back to school and thankfully, even if we are extremely busy; we did good with both our grades.
After working several part-time jobs over the summer, I finally got my break and got a full time job. I like what I do, and I do enjoy meeting new people. Most of all, I like the slow pace because I can take care of school without the added stress from work. Dada, on the other hand, got several calls/offers last October when he looked for another job.
My mother-in-law had finally settled in Monee with my father-in-law. She seems to be adjusting with her new life out in the country very well. Papa and mama had adjusted being away from each other too and also the rest of the family.
I was so thankful that Frankie was only sick once in 2009. He had a stomach flu one time that lasted several days and (knock on wood) it never happened again. I was also thankful last year because we took care of Papa’s hypertension and health. He got his blood test and got his physical exam too. So, now he is on medication that seems to be working very well for him.
On the other hand, Resty had an operation last year but with prayers the operation was successful. Ging-ging also had health issues at the middle of the year, but it went away before the year ended.
Dada and I both turned 31. We are happy with what we have accomplished together as husband and wife and looking forward for more years together.
This 2010 I would love to:
Spend more time with my extended family that is if I am not busy.
Save so I could buy a netbook that I could take to work and school to get my things done then Frankie and Papa could use the old one that I have which is too big to carry around.
Study…study…study… With the grades I have so far (considering the previous subjects I took in that school), I am on the Cum Laude list. I thought it would be ambitious, but you’ll never know. If I study I could maintain my grades and graduate as a Cum Laude. That would be awesome. I know… I am getting ahead of myself but with that in mind, who knows I might be able to do it.
Lastly, to take things easy. If things doesn’t happen the way I wanted it to be, then I need to learn to accept how things are, and let it go. I have to work on this because I easily gets frustrated when things are not right or not done right. One of my co-worker said that I am a perfectionist and very hard to myself sometimes. I explained to her that I don’t see it that way. I want other people to be responsible especially when it comes to work.
I hope the year 2010 will bring us blessings and our heart’s prayers and wishes will finally be answered. Happy New Year everyone!
