Last long weekend went by swiftly. It felt like I just blinked and the weekend was over just like that. A lot of things happened, actually. On Thursday, the hubby and I took a leave from work so we could help in packing the rest of the stuff at my PILs’ place that needed to be packed and moved. But before we could fill a balikbayan box with more stuff, fate had something in store for us. We had to accompany my two siblings to the bank because their home loan has finally been approved and contracts had to be signed. My side of the family is also staying in Bacoor for good. We are buying the house next to ours in Bacoor. As in the next door house. Ang saya-saya lang! Magkapitbahay na kami! We all prayed for this and our collective prayers were granted so thank you very much, Lord! 🙂
One of my PILs’ bosses was gracious and generous enough to host a farewell dinner for the Techo family that night. Mig Ayesa, the superstar in the Legarda family, was also there to join us.
By midnight, the people from the cargo company came to my PILs’ place in Manila to pick up the stuff we were sending to Bohol.
Our Friday, despite being a holiday, was busier. As I have mentioned here, it was our last day in the property where we were staying in Manila so we had to allot more time to pack to make sure we cover everything we had to cover. By nighttime, we drove to Bacoor and took Jasper, the friendly dog, with us. (He is currently doing well adjusting to his new home and a different environment that is our village.)
Our Saturday was spent unpacking, of course. Everything that we brough to Bacoor in the past weeks had to be kept in our tiny house in an orderly manner. On Sunday, we dropped my PILs to the airport as they had to be in Bohol first to receive the cargo we shipped there. They will be staying at their family home there to fix a lot of physical stuff and be back before the holidays to be with us on Christmas and New Year.
So yeah, we’re now staying in Bacoor for good and luckily for us, we’re okay and surviving. To more happy and good days ahead! 🙂
Enjoy the rest of the week, friends! 🙂
May you choose happiness always,
