My sister was in town for almost two weeks, early part of July. Aside from the usual hospital visits for her post-op check-ups (where she discovered she needs to undergo another surgery, this time for her colon *sad face*), and dining out at her favorite restaurants - it was fun bonding with her. We would stay up late late at night just chatting, updating each other on our lives ... even though we chat on Skype every single day! :D
It was also during her visit that 2 severe typhoons graced our country with their menacing presence. It rained a lot, streets were flooded, classes were suspended for the entire week. It was bleak, gloomy and very damp! But brave soul that my sister is, she didn't mind it one single bit and she enjoyed driving in the scary, zero visibility, torrential downpour!
The best unexpected news though was an answered prayer to a situation which seemed totally hopeless. It is too murky to blog about but suffice it to say we are all ecstatic about it. And we can't help praising the Lord above for the blessings He continues to shower upon our family. And nope, I am not preggy. Just making that clear!
So I'm back in my comfy zone with reality shows blaring from the TV (yes, reality shows are my guilty pleasure he he he) amidst the usual hustle and bustle of this once quiet residential environment now turned into a noisy neighborhood courtesy of the 'jeepney' terminal that suddenly popped up across our apartment.
At any given time, there are 4 - 5 jeeps parked on our street and they are ALWAYS revving up their engines. So imagine the ruckus, not to mention the pollution they are causing in this area! All the amount of complaining to the barangay hall center seem to fall on deaf ears. So Lord have mercy as I try to stay sane amidst all this noise barrage.
This is all for now ... will try to blog more ... soon!
