Weekend Story: Extended Stay and Cavite Dining Scene

Last weekend was a long one for the hubby and me. We spent a total of four days in our Bacoor home. We got there Saturday morning (the hubby’s classes were suspended) and left for Manila on Tuesday afternoon. We filed for a two-day leave from work using our overtime credits which, unfortunately for us, aren’t convertible to cash.

So what we did was we took a lot of rest at home. We also did some major cleaning (bathroom for me and the rest of the house for the hubby). Yes, that’s how division of labor works in our household. No judging. Haha. And we also worked on his last school report for this semester. Wow, time flies really fast. Before he knows it, another semester is looming already!

Restful Weekend

For the hubby and I, every weekend is different. Sometimes it’s quiet, sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s tiring, sometimes it’s restful. Sometimes it’s dull, sometimes it’s playful. Sometimes it’s a combination of any two or all.

One factor that affects how our weekends turn out is the people we get to spend them with. The activities we do during weekends are almost the same, but it’s the people we do these activities with that make them more special and memorable.

Long Saturday

Yesterday being a Saturday was work-free for me, just like for the majority of government employees here in the Philippines. But just because it was work-free doesn’t mean it was gonna be laidback or boring. I actually had a long day. And so was the hubby.

After lunch at home, we attended the joint birthday celebration of our friends Mac and Ella’s two adorable children at West Avenue in QC. The theme was basketball and there was a minion mascot. There were food booths serving sweet and tasty treats to the delight of children and adults alike. The merienda/early dinner food from the buffet was great and the children had a happy time with the hilarious host who doubled as a fantastic yoyo master. I have to give credit to the parents for pulling off such a fab and fun party. (Thanks again for inviting us, guys!) We left the party at past 6pm and drove home to Bacoor.

Too Little Time

The weekend has passed very swiftly. It’s Monday once again and most of us are back to work. Oh, how little time we all have. Our weekend was pretty normal except that we had my parents in the house. Together, we visited our Naic home on Saturday to clean up. It was a big mess because it had been idle for four long months. Sunday was relaxed, we just went to church to hear mass and then stayed home the whole day.

Last weekend was all about calm and relaxed living. It’s amazing how I got to find happiness in little things. Like when I cooked Kung Pao pasta and my mom liked it a lot. (I initially thought she hated spicy food.) Like when I finally found my missing shoes. Like when I peacefully slept for hours in our bedroom in the afternoon, with the air-con on and with my husband beside me. Like when I re-arranged my accessories and realized that a lot of them I haven’t even worn yet.

Missing Home

Today is such a long day. And I feel like wanting for it to end fast. I wish the clock strikes eight already so I could go home (Bacoor) and rest. I miss our home, our new sanctuary. I know the hubby feels the same. He says it all the time, anyway. Haha.

Right now, I imagine myself lying on the couch while watching TV. I guess I’m just bored to death. I hope traffic is light tonight on our way home. I wanna get home fast. At least, that’s what I want right now.
