Filipino mothers all over the world celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday. My Facebook page and Facebook messenger had lots of messages. I greeted a lot of friends and I received a lot of greetings as well. I really felt loved.
My kids even gave me money from their own wallets. Caitlin gave me 20 pesos and Liam gave me 50 pesos.
Thank you, God for giving me thoughtful kids!
It was a normal morning for me. I did household chores and repotted some of my cacti and succulents. Nanay and I even had to ask my husband where he plans to take us for our special day. We were doing the grocery anyway so it was a given that we were going out. He was asking us where we wanted to go but I said it’s all up to him.
My husband first suggested Tagaytay but I felt that the place and the roads going there will be congested so I opted to go to Solenad 3 Nuvali, instead. So we all got ready to go out.
Here’s a picture of what Nanay and I wore for Mother’s Day.
I had a hard time parking. I entered via Solenad 3 at the gate facing S&R. I was hoping to get a parking slot there. My goodness! There were so many cars and a lot were still waiting. No free slot, and a lot of waiting cars at the sides with their hazard lights on = bad prognosis for me. I proceeded to Solenad 2 parking to try my luck in case families who just went out for grocery would like to leave early. No luck, I circled the area twice. That’s when I suggested for my husband to just go and order at Nonna’s. I waited for a good 15 minutes outside the establishment with my hazard light on and I still couldn’t park. My head was starting to throb from hunger and I can feel anger building up inside me. Luckily, my husband was thoughtful enough to check on me from time to time. He said they had their order already and the kids are comfortably seated. He let me go down so that I can eat.
And this was what greeted me.
Thank you Nonna’s for giving me and Nanay long stemmed roses!
We went to the Solenad 3 Cyber area to look for a laptop for me for my online job. I’ve been having a hard time since the hard drive of our desktop got filled up. We didn’t find anything my husband liked since there were so little choices. I wish Solenad or the malls around us would have more computer shops.
We transferred to SM Calamba and got this new baby Dell at Electroworld. So this is my first blog entry written with my new baby.
And these were the very first pictures taken with this new laptop to test its camera:
So that was how I spent my Mother’s Day with the ones I love. How did you spend yours?
