Father's Day

Last Sunday, it was... i greeted all the dads and dads-to-be whom i know, of course, that includes Hubby. ^__^

I have told you about my father, some posts back. And since I lost him so early, I can only send him prayers. You see, I grew up believing that people who passed away can hear my prayers. :) Well, there's no harm in trying... It was kinda saddening not being able to have a memory of your own father. I wonder how my mom was able to manage? 0_o Anyway, I'm all grown up now. What matters most is that she was able to raise me and my sister well... And she finally have found her happiness - my stepfather. :)

But some few weeks ago, a friend of mine whom I haven't heard from for ages, sent me a message telling me that she already found my father's relatives. They live near where she lives so it wasn't really hard. She told me that my father's cousin is looking forward to meet me soon. I was really happy! (Who wouldn't?) I told her right away that I'll be visiting them soon. As soon as I can squeeze that in my very busy schedule.

Now, that's another thing to look forward to! ^__^
-----------------------
"To my dad, happy father's day! Thank you for asking your friend to come find mom and me. Though, it was a bad news, I still feel loved by you. Don't you worry. I'll come find your grave and bring you flowers and candles. I'll bring along your beautiful grandchildren, so they'll recognize you. They've been "deprived" of a grandfather's love because Hubby's dad died early too. :( Good thing, mom met Mr. M. At least, now they have someone to call "Lolo" (means Grandfather in Filipino). :) He's a very nice and decent man. I've witnessed his pure love for mom.

Once again, thank you... You know That I love you..."

tea time!

just sharing these photos of Hubby's gift to me for Mother's day... sorry for the late post... :)

Starting again...

After the series of unbelievable events in our lives, I'm finally starting to pick up the little pieces of what's left in me. Hope. I keep telling myself until now that i have to be grateful for all the good and the bad things that happened. Yeah! Bad things teaches us a lesson. We learn from it and we must keep moving forward.

So, lately I've been focused on my kids' schooling, the shop and some other fun activities. Also, Hubby and I were able to find a way to send my youngest daughter to school. Yay to that! ^__^

I shall see you all some other time, my friends. My weekdays are kinda hectic. I might be able to come back during weekends. Thanks! :)

so...

i know that everyone has been wondering what has happened and why have i decided to stop blogging for a while. i don't know if you can still remember the story about my boys, The Franciscan Quartet, going to Hollywood for that competition. well, here's an update --- they are NOT going anymore! aaaaaaaw.. i know how this could be disappointing but nobody else could be more disappointed than us, their moms. WHY AREN'T WE GOING? well, simply because we weren't able to pass the Visa interview. and we, the moms, were all refused of this visa for no known reason (i guess).. the officer who conducted our interview was an Asian guy who, i think, doesn't really know what he was doing right at that moment. he was asking the officer (an American guy) regarding our papers and what to do about it. and then he just said, "would you still allow your son to go without you?" i answered "yes, BUT!.." then he cut me right there and said "okay, you are being refused an American visa and you may now proceed to the courier service right at the pavilion." and i was like 0_0 "duh?" yes! yes! yes! it went just like that and then nothing! (pfffft!)

now, what was that?!

okay.. before we all went for the interview, i told myself that no matter what will happen, passed or not, i wouldn't mind. i'm kinda half-hearted about this whole thing because i know that i can't really afford to go... talk about the airfare and the hotel accommodation expenses and such?... i just can't afford it. the sponsors didn't really help a lot because of the election that took place last month. and most of our contacts were politicians who were just throwing off some of their wealth to win the election. and some of them even told us that if ever they have extra money to spend - well, they won't be spending it on us. :( well, that's life.

i don't hold any grudges for anybody... actually, i was kinda relieved. although i wanted so much to call that Asian officer in the embassy a name, like "inconsiderate asshole" but naaah! that wouldn't help either... and if we did passed, how are we going to handle everything?

now that the Hollywood dream is over, i can move on to the next step. it's almost school time here and my youngest daughter, hasn't enrolled yet. i haven't shopped for their school needs. and it's all because i'm short of funds. my online shop has to stop for a while because i am too busy processing our papers. and now i'm bringing back everything in order... it's barely 2 weeks but i'm keeping my fingers crossed.. i had to earn some more money so i can send my youngest one to school. all of my savings were spent to our passport and other necessary papers for the trip. it ain't easy! i'm left with nothing but empty pocket, little money in the bank and debts. all because of that trip. :(

all i can think of right now is to keep moving forward. it's useless to rant about them. i can't afford to waste my precious blog space, time and effort. but i'll tell you a story some other time about my adventures with the foreign affairs here. i just need a little more contemplating before i could write them all down. :) har har har!

i'll see you around again... very soon. ^___^ i missed everyone out here!

there and back again...

whoa! i'm here again! it felt like home sweet home! :)

okay... i know i have a lot of explaining to do but let me breathe first... i would be more than willing to tell you what happened and why i was MIA for like 2 months and 1 week. see?

so please... just bear with me and let me share where i've been and i've gone through. and everything else!

let me just take a shower... BRB! ^____^
