The nephews does not like car pool

The school year 2019-2020 starts last June 3, 2019 here in the country. Busy days are here again for me. My duty in sending and fetching the nephews at school starts as well. I am glad that the nephews are in afternoon session. I do not need to get up early, and suffer the early morning traffic everyday. Their classes starts at 12:00 noon and ends at 6:00 pm. The picking up hours for the public vehicles and buses. I must say, it is very difficult to commute at this hour.

Because of the nephew’s schedule, their mother (my sister), and I are thinking of getting them in the car pool. With car pool, we are sure that the kids will be home before dinner time. I do not have to fetch them at school because the car pool will send them home. No hassle for me with this setup, the problem is the nine (9) year old nephew, does not want a ride in the car pool. He wants me to fetch him from school.argsh! We do not know why only the nephew knows. He just told us that he does not like to ride in the car pool. And he won. I will be doing the same routine, sending and fetching them. Poor

The father’s request was granted

We do not plan for having our summer outing at the beach this year because the father is sick. He cannot walk yet, and not fully recovered. It is not a good idea to go out because he gets tired easily. However, while having our dinner, the father said that he wants to go to the beach. He wants us to have our usual summer bonding. As much as possible we want to grant father’s request. Right there, the sister and I planned our overnight summer outing at the beach.

We had our summer outing at the beach last May 26 and 27, 2019. The two days and one night stay at the beach was fun. We saw the smile on father’s face. He is happy watching the kids having fun in the water. But, a bit sad because the younger brother did not make it. Even so, we still see his smiles that we missed to see for months. The father’s request was granted and he is very happy. Thank you to my older sister for the treat. We get to relax and unwind away from the busy city for two days. It was one memorable bonding with the family.

P.S. I shared some photos I took during our summer outing at the beach.

The store is doing well

It was like yesterday when we reopened our small store in the village where we live. The store is now operating for one year. The store was attached to our house. Even though there are multiple competitors in the village, still we tried our luck to reopen the store for extra income. This was our third attempt to open the store. There was a mismanage in the past and we decided to close the store. I must admit that I am scared and have negative thoughts, but I have to take the risk and be optimistic at all times.

Anyways, it has been a year since I reopen the store. And I am so happy that the store is earning and doing well. It helps us in some expenses at home. We do not have to worry when we need money for emergency because I have saved from the income I have saved. The family is taking part also in attending the store. Thank you to my sister who lend us her credit card so that we can buy more products and items at store. Thank you for her support as well. I am hoping and praying that the store will grow bigger for better profit. Thank you Lord also for all the blessings. All of this happens because of You.

The earning is very slow

Well, not all day is a good day. There are times that we are flooded with the blessing and there are that we aren’t. I am aware of that though and have to keep in mind that time will come that luck is not always in my side. It is really scary though especially when I do not know where and what to go when these things happen. Even though I am prepared, I still can’t believe that it is really happening now. It has been three years when I started blogging. And those past years I must say that it is a fruitful year for me. I am really enjoying my new found career. I love it because I really love writing. Doing the things that I love and earning from doing it is really awesome.

However, just recently blogging is really slow. I even think of the worse thing and it is really scary. Thinking of what is happening in the blogosphere makes me think that I should get a job. At my age, it is really difficult to find a job especially I am competing with the younger ones. I do not want to quit because I love my career now and I am would like to do it for long or forever. I have heard of not so good about blogging that is why earning is very slow but I do not think negatively, I would like to believe that this is not a good month for us bloggers. I hope and I pray that blogging will be as fruitful as the previous years so that bloggers will forever be happy. I also pray that this very slow earning in blogging will be over soon and more earnings to come for us.

Sleepover at my sister’s house

Last night I stayed overnight at my sister’s house. This is not new to me because I always do this every time the sister’s husband went to his parents (in the province). I just accompanying her while her husband is not around. Before I was the only one sleeping at their house, but now we are three. My nieces went with me too. They want to sleep in the air-conditioned room. For several attempts of begging to their mother, their mother said yes. The girls are very happy and excited. They brought with them blanket and their body pillow.

I like to sleepover at my sister’s house because of my two nephews. Every time I sleepover at their house, they want to sleep beside me and they keep on talking to me. It is like we have not seen each other for a long time. Yes, they are very sweet kids like me. Last night they did not know that I will sleep at their house. When I went there they are already sleeping. When I open my eyes early this morning, the first faces that I saw are my nephews smiling at me and said “Tita” (Aunt in english). Isn’t it sweet? I hope to sleep there more often so the nephew and I can bonding before going to sleep.
