Last weekend was carefree and fun. The hubby and I spent most of our Saturday with our good friends Nice and Melay in Tagaytay. Our Sunday was spent with my family. We were not able to go to the wet market and to church this time and instead, we just went grocery shopping and did household chores together. We even got to drive to Naic in the morning with my parents to pick up a few items from our family home there. We plan to have it rented out soon so we’re slowly moving things out of the house.
Last weekend was slow and relaxed. On Saturday, the hubby and I attended two events: a birthday lunch and a meet-up with his car club friends. We were just at home the entire Sunday, relishing what was left of our weekend. We were with family and made sure to do as much household chores that needed to get done.
Last weekend was not so bad despite the onslaught of the typhoon (Ompong) and its aftermath. The hubby and I drove home in Bacoor on Friday night and went back to Manila on Sunday night. We were just at home doing household chores, eating, Netflix-ing, and cuddling because, maginaw, hahaha. When the rains and the winds stopped on Saturday afternoon (but it was muddy everywhere!), we went out of the house to do all these stuff: hear the anticipated mass, refuel the car, buy water, have dinner at Betoy’s restaurant (Molino branch), go to Evia (the mall), and get some supplies at Rustan’s supermarket located in the same mall.
I was in Baguio last Friday and Saturday for work and so the hubby and I only got to drive home in Bacoor on Saturday night after I arrived in Manila from Baguio. We spent the rest of the weekend just taking some rest and finishing some errands.
Our event in Baguio was a success (thank God!). It was super cold there during our visit (we were a group of five). Balita ko umabot pa ng 8 degrees Celsius nung madaling araw ng Sabado, buti na lang tulog pa ako nun at nakabalot ng comforter sa hotel, hahaha. But I enjoyed Baguio so much I wanted to go back this summer!
One of the perks of staying in our Bacoor home during weekends is we get to practice being husband and wife. You know, just the two of us doing things together. Having house guests, however, has its own advantages. Like when my in-laws join us in Bacoor, for instance, and life suddenly becomes easier. You see, my MIL is very fond of doing household chores. Whenever she’s visiting us, she wouldn’t stop until she sees the whole house spick and span. Actually, she hates clutter so much that when she was still working at the restaurant, she would spend her days off staying at home and just cleaning up their house. She gets satisfied and happy doing just that. Now that she’s semi-retired, she still does a lot of cleaning (at their place here in Manila and at ours in Bacoor). I hope I inherit her “kasipagan” one day. Haha.
