Finally…Posted: May 5, 2007
HOUSE MOVING UPDATE:
I have already had a one on one talk with our tenant (whose still at our house!). If only I could keep him there forever, I would but unfortunately, the circumstances were laid like so. He graciously asked to give him at least until the end of the month to move as apartments that are cheap and safe are hard to find. Our rent only costs about USD 26.00 ( Php 1,200.00) plus half of the electricity bill which includes the water bill as we run the house with deep well water plus a very peaceful environment. I couldn’t blame them. In the years that I’ve been semi-away from home, I always have this urge to return home. I long for the quietness of our place. We are fortunate that our house was located in between two semi-vacant lots, one is a private property that was untouched by the owner and the other one is a abandoned warehouse that was
put on fire a couple of years ago (it was a headline). I remember my mom used to say that the reason most of our househelps leaves us is that the place is sad as it is always quiet. But for me, my home is a haven. Though it holds a lot of sad memories, it still holds happy ones too. Its time to make more happy memories there.
Anyway, we have started packing things now. We started last May 1. We already brought clothes that we don’t wear often, books that I have read for the nth time, wedding gifts, computer spare parts and other knick knacks. We were on a home “things” shopping now for the past few days. So far the list of what we need are like this:
Plates– already got two sets and one semi-set but no bowls!
- Spoon and fork
Plate rack– we bought our favorite wood rack! Kitchen pots and pans– Sunnex wares are on sale with 20% discount! We’ve got a casserole type and a frying pan. Our ninang already gave us a rice cooker. Kitchen utensils– we have a frying thingy (so much for my kitchen know-how), and a wooden spoon. No knives yet. Kettle Canisters Mugs and Glasses
- Chopping Board
- Gas Stove
- Dining Table
Place mats– 06.05.07
Ironand Ironing board
- Bed and Pillows
Clothes Cabinet– 05.05.07
- Trash Can
- Bed and Pillow Covers
Carpet– Our living room (we’re planning a japanese style one as our space is small 🙂 )
We’ll I guess we would be adding up more in the future. What else do I need?
STUFFS UPDATE :
The past few days, the my constant everchanging mind got the better of me. I am “itching” to buy myself again a domain name and go back to my one of my favorite hobbies, wordpress theme tweaking.
Last year I own the domain, simplyabbie.com. I didn’t renew my registration as I feel that I don’t like the name anymore. But in the process, I really learned alot. I learned, at least, basics of html, php and css. That blog also helped me get through some of my tough times. Especially last year that I thought my life is going on a spiral with no definite directions.
Anyways, I am still obssesed in finding a perfect site name for me and my husband. I want a domain name that we could share but the idea is still on a rough draft. Any suggestions?
