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! 🙂
Today is gonna be a great day for the fiancee. Hours from now, we will be going to the developer’s office to get the move-in documents for his new house in Cavite. The last time we checked out the place, we did a thorough inspection of the unit in the presence of the property manager. Luckily, there was not much to report except for a few cement and paint stains here and there.
The next step to all of this is the move-in. Did I mention that the house has its own water and electricity already? As early as now, the fiancee has started canvassing for light fixtures to install in the house. Some home improvement projects are in place, too. It’s gonna be costly for sure, but it seems he had prepared for that a long time ago. Good for him. Haha.
After signing the one-bedroom apartment contract for a year’s lease, and finalizing the arrangements with the owner two weeks ago, my siblings and I are now bracing ourselves for the big move. The agreed date was October 15, but the owner said I could already get the keys as early as October 8 so we could start cleaning the house and transfer furniture, closets, etc.
All four of us siblings are very excited about this move. I mean, we have long wanted to get out of our old, dilapidated boarding house. It was just that, before, we didn’t have the resources to do so.
