Progress 2017



Can you believe we are nearing the end of the year? For us Filipinos, when the ber month starts, Christmas spirit starts. However, here in America, it is too early yet to greet you Merry Christmas because for most of us, school has just begun.

Yes, a couple weeks ago, school started for our 6th Grader. A week ago, for the Professor husband. This past Monday, for me and our Kindergartner as homeschoolers. Yes, this new school year poses a different kind of challenge for me because here I am, back to homeschooling my 5-years old! I feel like she is still too little to be waking up at 6 in the morning for school so homeschooling is the perfect alternative. Both of us are into it so it will be fun.

The most exciting part of this school year though is our 6th Grader who is going to public school! We have decided to take advantage of what Keene Independent School District has to offer and yes, their Gifted and Talented Program as well s their Robotics Club sound like a fit for our Triz. So we will see.

Onward to the end of the year it is for us! We are going to get busy with school once again while I have started my new job as a Hospital Lab Phlebotomist leaving my patient care tech on the med-surg unit so it is kinda bittersweet and challenging as well. However, we are looking forward to our grand vacation in December which is a homecoming to Philippines so it is what keeps up all ecstatic. Definitely another set of great memories with loved ones and friends over there.

…and September 12th becomes a history


Yesterday, September 12, was my husband’s birthday. He is my superman– he makes everything easy and light for me, despite life’s odds and roughness.

He rejects the idea of dining out or inviting people over for a party; he is not the type to enjoy a grand celebration. He is a very simple man, in fact, the simplest person I have known. He is not into cakes, so to make his birthday memorable and celebrated, I opted for a bread as his cake. He loved it, of course!

Every September 12th is a day that I am most grateful for. That’s because my almost-perfect-husband was born on this day and if he wasn’t, my life would have taken a different track today. I don’t know if it would be a good or bad living; all I know is that I am so blessed by this man’s existence into the world and into my life.

He is another year older this year; and certainly another reason to be kinder and wiser; if he hasn’t been.
