Being Married

Married is indeed bittersweet! Why so?

When you fight and then make up --- making up for me is the best part! Calling your hubby's attention when he forgets to hang the towel after taking a bath, picking up after your hubby, whenever he says "babe ang kulit mo!" but realizes at the end what your point is. He really tests your patience but at the end of the day you cannot stand being mad or away from him. Weird huh? Is this what they call LOVE? I guess so. Not only accepting the persons good side but also his flaws. To love the complete package!

I am sure for each married couple, they have their own story to tell. All our stories are different one way or another. But a common denominator (I believe) is that the wife is the pillar and strength of every family. Don't you think so? I can say this because based on my experiences and my friends stories...its really the woman who keeps hold of everything. May it be handling the household, husband and wife troubles, children, keeping values intact, etc. But please don't get me wrong, our husbands play a big role also in this equation. Where would we be without them right? Its just amazing on how a woman can multi task things in her life. Family, work, her social life, personal stuff (going to the parlor, shopping, etc) and of course God.

My hubby and I don't have a perfect marriage --- who does? But I will not trade what we have for anything. Marriage is not an easy ride but we constantly are learning from each other and it has been great! As my mom says, we've got a long way to go, a lot to learn and discover and I welcome this challenge with open arms. My hubby is what makes me whole and our imperfections makes us love each other more each day! :-)

My Project

I've been mentioning in my blogs that work has been keeping me really busy these past few weeks or should I say month. Well, its because of this project. This is also the reason why I am leaving for the US this October. Basically this event will kick off this July 27 and will have a series of roadshows up to September and the main event will happen in October.

There is still things that I have to do --- which is kind of stressing me out already. But its all good! Thats how it is I guess!

Whats up?

As usual, its been busy at work for me. I havent been updating my blog if you would notice. Now I have a chance...

Anyway, we had our interview yesterday at the US Embassy (me, Gin and my MIL) and we passed! Yipee!!! The interview lasted only for two minutes and we were waiting for more than 2 hours. It was worth the wait! We are leaving for the US this October. One is because of work --- I have to attend an event my company is producing (since this is my project too) and at the same time I was able to convince Gin to go on a vacation with me since I am there already --- might as well take the opportunity. Our long overdue honeymoon and well deserved break! I am so excited for Gin because its his first time to go to the US and our first time to travel out of the country together. This has been my dream for him or should I say one my wishes that we will travel to the US together and now its almost coming true. Almost because we havent bought the ticket yet. Hehehe! Its going to be lots of fun!!! :-) Gin is also excited. He was pessimistic at the start because he was worried about work but now he's showing some excitement already.

With this happening, Gin and I decided to move my treatment to a later date --- later this year that is. Which is okay I guess. We cant afford to take this trip and also spend for my treatment. The treatment doesnt come cheap. At first I felt sad, because I really wanted to go through LIT already. I am hoping and praying that I can get pregnant again this year after completing the treatment but there is a reason for everything. Maybe God wants us to take this chance to spend quality time together and get to experience being in another country before having a baby. Which I suppose we cannot really do freely once we have our baby. Also, its a privilege for me to be sent by my company and represent them in this event.

What did I realize here? "I cant have my cake and eat it too!" I think God is trying to tell me that there should be a balance with all the things that are happening in my life. One wish at a time and I am not complaining... :-)
