Hello mudrabelles! I can now make kwento how things went on with me & my family since my open letter to my hot army officer. Well, with so many ganaps happening around, I didn't have time to REALLY blog. I think you noticed that. I miss this. So much! Kaya I promised myself tonight na babawi ako sa kwento. Let me start with this photo. Yes yes yes. A bouquet of pink (or peach?) semi-bukadkad roses from the lover boy. He went home on the day of our 2nd wedding anniversary. ♥
When I heard the engine of a car parking in front of the gate, kinabahan ako. As in same kaba that I felt five years ago when he came home from Mindanao, for me. Ang powerful cheek bones ko, unti-unting umaangat to a smile. Aba, pagsilip ko, ang mamang sundalo, may hawak na bulaklak! Hahaha! Napakaripas ako papasok ulit ng bahay. Kalooooooooka. Ngayon niya lang ako ulit binigyan ng bulaklak kaya ganun na lang ang kilig ko. Hindi siya tulad ng kilig na nararamdaman ko everytime I make weewee. Ibang-iba talaga. Shet. Is this love? (Ah eh Denise, asawa mo na siya.)
Ayan nga oh, kaya kahit dugyoters na dugyoters kami, hindi pwedeng hindi magpa-peekchure. Sorry naman sa oiliness at sa mga nakakalat na packed stuff namin, Rhambo & I decided to celebrate our anniversary by moving in to our new apartment, which first time niya lang nakita nung nakalipat na. Ehem, natuwa naman siya at so far eh wala pang reklamo. He's even more excited to glam it up with the furniture it needs. That's a good sign! Kinakatakot ko lang eh baka sitahin ang pag-budget ko sa pera namin dahil nga sa kagustuhan niyang kumpletuhin ang gamit sa bagong balur. Eh knowing him pa naman, 'pag may ginusto, dapat makuha niya talaga. Ako nga oh, super pinursue niya. Charooooot! Katryn Bernardo, ikaw ba yan?
The kawalan of house things for the bagong balur includes a vase. That's why I used LB's old Hello Kitty water bottle for my pink roses. Diyan siya nakatikas-pahinga sa 4-seater round table namin na gamit pa namin 3 years ago. And because we don't have stove & LPG tank, not even an electric one, we only bought lechon manok, atchara and lots of rice plus Coke for our anniversary dinner. Rhambo brought along some of his men, hence, 15 orders of rice. I bought 4 plastic chairs na super mumurahin kasi the chairs that came along with the glass table (oo, glass yan, borkot akong mabasag ng bagets kaya may table cloth agad) ay nagsipanaw na. The jowa naman said we'll be buying a new set. He's so gay pa nga on describing what he wants for a dining chair eh. And yes, for the nth time, we both liked the same thing. We love each other because we love and hate the same stuff. :)
We didn't bring the queen-size bed frame that we used in MIL's house. For some, it's called pride. For me, it's not. Hello, hindi siya kasya sa kwarto! Pang-double lang ang room eh. Hahaha! Totoo naman talaga mga teh, kahit dinala ko siya, mayayamot lang ako kasi cute ang room namin. Uy ha, small but terrible yun kasi may terrace, built-in cabinet at "abang" ng aircon! Therefore, nangangailangan ng aircon ang kwarto. Akala ko pa nga makakapaglagay ako ng aking blogging corner pero mukhang malabo. Kama pa lang, puno na. Anyway, sa baba ko na lang siguro ilalagay ang blogging corner na yan kung sakali. Yes muthers, may hagdan! At oo, super na-happy ang bagets. Ewan ko ba why there's something special about stairs and children. Ang dami kong batang nasaksihan ang pagkahumaling sa hagdan. Dun ba nila nakakausap ang kanilang mga imaginary friends? For LB, it's REKELI, a pink bunny na minsan ay nagiging ant. Lord, please don't let her talk to Rekeli in the stairs na kaming dalawa lang. Mababaliw ako, promise. Waah! Gusbangs.
Anyway, I just want to say na 1/10 (nagiging magaling na ako sa fraction chenelin na ito, pansin ko lang) of my heart ay slightly sad kasi the pink-gray-black room in MIL's house served as our home for more than a year. From a yellow-painted bodega, it became the pink haven to all the emotions I had as a woman, wife and mother. I will truly miss it. But wait, the new room, tiny as it is, will create new stories! And I am very sure of one thing --- there will always be love. I am also excited for some changes. Rhambo & I agreed that we'll giving LB the other room to be her own. Since she'll be turning 5 on 2013, it's just fitting to teach her independence. And the thought of decorating it with pink, frills & Hello Kitty had somehow put me in Nirvana. 'Nak, magsawa ka sa pink, itatak mo yan sa ribbon ni Kitty!
We may not have dined out in an expensive restaurant like what we did last year, but the day was still as special as we have envisioned it to be. To the other half that makes me whole, HAPPY BELATED ANNIVERSARY! And cheers to our new kingdom. ♥
