Hello 2017

Oh yeah, I almost forgot I blog. Lol. Oops!
Hello there! I'm back! Well, I've been away for quite a while and I'll share with you why on this post, so yeah, this is going to be long y'all.

Obviously, my last post was last year of November. And then, I was gone. I was gone for more than a month, even on my social media accounts, I was rarely posting anything. I was busy and I guess I was overwhelmed with what happened during those times I was away, I thought I needed a break.

the street I grew up in Antipolo. I miss this place sooo much!!
So in the middle of November my sister came from the U.S., so of course we'd meet a couple of days, though not everyday. So that alone was pretty tiring honestly. And then it was my little girl's birthday celebration. I was struggling to find affordable but good cake supplier and private pool. We really just wanted to celebrate it at home. But we thought we would also like to celebrate Joshua's maternal grandmother's birthday as well. So yeah, we did kind of not go with the original plan. I also thought that since my sister has been away for 16 years, I guess it would just be fine. Well, awesome really since she'd meet my husband's family and relatives as well. Unfortunately, not all of Joshua's relatives were able to come though. :(



her beautiful cake!!
After my little girl's birthday celebration, it was also my husband's cousin's wedding! Yup, just a couple of days after Maco's birthday celeb. Dressing up isn't easy for a lady you know (well, at least for me!), so that also consumed a couple of my days as well! Lol I know. Finding a good dress, the right accessories, etc.



And then of course it was Christmas! Had a really awesome Christmas last year. We played games and had an exchange gift like we always do!

The next day after Christmas, it was Joshua's older brother's birthday naman. We had a little celebration here at home. A week after that, we went to Liliw, Laguna (Joshua's father's hometown) to attend a family reunion. And I mean the whooole clan was there! Though one of Joshua's Tito told me that it's still not complete! Woah!

And then the worst part of 2016 happened.

We went home that same night, because Joshua's Tito was rushed to the hospital. 2 days later, he left us already. It was so sudden. Oh how we miss him. He'd always come here in the morning just to see Maco (most of the time though Maco was still asleep), and when Maco turned 6 months, he would give us Maco's daily supply of lugaw (rice porridge) until I think the little girl was already more than a year old! Lol! And then when Maco was able to walk, whenever Maco would go by their place (not far from here), he would buy Maco candies. Sayang lang na nawala isang Lolo ni Maco na wala pa siya masyadong malay, na hindi na niya makita  pa si Lolo Henry niya. But of course, we will make sure she'll know more of her Lolo Henry and that she'll never forget him.

After the puyatan we did, I got sick and had massive headaches. I meant massive. I've never had bad headaches like I that. Ugh.

Anyway, so those happened while I was away. I think it was a lot for a month. I was overwhelmed. I got tired that even thinking of what to post was tiring me! Lol. But seriously, I think I got drained or something. I felt like I needed a time off of social media or something, you know. So I kind of did that. And now yeah, I think I could say I'm back to blogging! I just hope this would not go away too soon. ;)

  4. Hi Sis, December and the holiday season is really so stressful. Until now I wonder "whatever happened to my December (the bigger question, where did my Christmas bonys go?)". I am sad to here about the passing of your dear Lolo Henry. I am sure he would still be watching over you and your family.

  6. Oh well..2016 was a hell of year for me too. It's overwhelming- like a roller coaster ride. Like you, I am planning to have my own social media hiatus, in fact I've been considering deactivating my accounts....but oh well I still have a lot of online commitments. But as soon as I am done with all of them I would also take a break. For sure your break was very beneficial now back to regular programming..haha. (macy santos)

  25. It was sure overwhelming to go through all those in just a month, it really is a must that you find time to rest and relax and wait for the headaches to abate. My deepest condolences for your loss. Hopefully, January treated you better.
