What I’d Been Doing This Year?

January 2008: I was totally bloated at this month, Faith was inside me kicking yet wanted to get out from my tummy. That was Mj’s birthday that I tried my best to attend her party at the beach, even I did not have sleep yet since I just got out from work, even my tummy aches a little bit at that time. It was the beginning of my maternity leave though so I thought to just rest later after the party.

February 2008: I delivered Faith at 9:01 p.m. two weeks after Mj’s birthday party. She supposedly due on 24th to 28th but she cannot wait her dad to arrive on 21st. She was born on the same day as my Dad was. I actually forgot my Dad’s birthday until my sister Merlyn phoned me on February seven to remind us on Dad’s birthday and that we have to attend the mass on February 08 to commemorate his birthday. After we talked on the phone, I felt Faith was kicking so I went to our bathroom to pee but then I saw a white thing similar to a cotton balls. I called Sister Irenei and told her to get home immediately. Honey arrives on 21st and was teary eyed when he touch and carry Faith on his arms the first time.

March 2008: We send Faith’s paper for our visa application.

April 2008: Spending a lot of time with our baby at home and signed up for blogging.

May 2008: I went back to work with a heavy heart. My friends at work were so happy to see me and were so surprised how I gained so much weight.

June 2008: I decided to resign from work. Even though my boss tried to stop me but I have to choose and have to prioritize my kids. They both need my attention and care more than everything they need me.

July 2008: Planning Faith’s baptismal.

August 2008: Terry arrives for Faith baptismal. We were interviewed two days already before the date. I thought we would not approved because the policy should be four days before the event. Thank God the nun who interviewed us approved our schedule.

September 2008: Bugging Terry about our application and was reconcile with Sister Lilian.

October 2008: Terry bought me a ticket to go to Singapore but was declined with the Immigration Officer for lacking requirements. When I asked about it before I went, the airline where I bought the ticket told me how many times that the requirement does not include an invitation letter from my sister in Singapore.

November 2008: I went to Cebu with Clarinda. I was disappointed with my travel plan going to Singapore so Terry suggested forgetting about that stuff and going somewhere. He told me to reserve a ticket again for Singapore but I choose Cebu instead.

December 2008: We are planning to get married soon. I don’t know when yet but soon.

This year has been fruitful for me, even though we had a lot of trials that came our way but we were able to overcome it. Although our application was far beyond to become true yet but our love is strong and I know we will be together soon.
