Weekend Story: Work and Some Family Fun

Last weekend saw the hubby and me staying put in Manila. We weren’t able to go home in Bacoor because I had work half of Saturday and he joined an out-of-town bike ride on Sunday. The rest of our weekend was spent with family. My goal was to stick to my weekend budget but I ended up spending way more than it. I need to do some offsetting soon!

Weekend Story: 3S’s (Sweet, Simple, and Special)

Jodie, for instance, had asked me to accompany her in getting a formal suit. She plans to give her “dream job” a shot and I’m fully supporting her. Mame, on the other hand, just wanted to bond with her eldest child and her favorite son-in-law. Haha.

Sometimes, you plan something and it doesn’t push thru. Sometimes, you give yourself a timeline and you don’t get to follow it. Sometimes, you imagine yourself winning on something only to get defeated in the end. Sometimes, shit happens. Never lose faith!

Sometimes, you do your best only to get a less than satisfactory outcome. Sometimes, you think you’re strong enough only to find yourself feeling weak and helpless. Sometimes, you get surprised by the unexpected.
