Our anniversary is approaching and we have yet to decide where to go or what to do. We’ll be celebrating our 9th year anniversary this September. Ang bilis di ba? Nine years na yun?! Time flies very fast when you’re umm… very busy! Hahahaha!
I am actually very excited for our anniversary getaway. This is the once a year trip when kaming dalawa lang ni Alvin ang magkasama. I feel super guilty of course because Anika does not go with us sa short vacations na ito pero I savor these trips that Alvin and I go to na kaming dalawa lang. It’s the closest I can get to the time and feeling back then na ako yung buong mundo niya.
Atin atin lang, I miss Alvin and I when we were just the two of us.
Don’t get me wrong, mga bakla. I love Anika so very much. She’s our world. I cannot imagine our lives without her. Even though I get frustrated every month when I get my menstruation at hindi na naman ako buntis, I am still very thankful the Lord sent us Anika. She brightens our every day and I will not trade having her for anything. Pero totoo talaga sabi nung friend ko when she learned that I was pregant. She said, “Enjoy your remaining days with your husband. Ang laking magbabago sa inyong dalawa once magkaroon na kayo ng anak.”
It’s very true.
I cannot even remember the last time Alvin hugged me like this for a photo (ng kusa ha?).
Like kanina lang, I’m sitting here right now sa breakfast counter namin at home blogging. He walked towards me from the living room kasi pupunta siya sa kitchen. I heard him say something.
ME: Sinabi mo ba “HI”?
ALVIN: Sabi ko “aray!”.
ME: Ah akala ko nagpapacute ka sa akin.
ALVIN: Asa ka pa.
Ang sweet di ba?
I cannot also remember the last time he looked at me like this.
Buti nga yung kasambahay namin tinatanong niya kung kumain na eh. Ako, dumating na at lahat sa bahay, hindi man lang tanungin.
Ang sweet sweet niya niya talaga.
I know, I know. There are some super lucky wives out there na hindi nagbago ang asawa to her even though sampu na anak nila. Ang swerte niyo.
But I’m not complaining. Ganun talaga eh. Even though Alvin’s not sweet anymore, he always still makes me laugh. He takes care of me when I’m sick.
He still shows that he cares.
ALVIN: Magpalit ka nga ng damit dun! Nanay ka na tapos naka-pekpek shorts ka na naman!
Hindi ko makita yung sense pero nagpapalit naman ako. Lelz.
And ang tiyaga niya talaga sa akin when I underwent my recent anxiety depression.
It’s not easy to be a husband of a type A, career oriented working mom. I will blog about being a working wife next time to dwell on that topic more. Pero yun nga, because once a year lang, I look forward to our anniversary trips very much.
I was pushing that we go to Bohol. Hindi na ako matuloy tuloy sa Bohol na yan. But Alvin wants to go somewhere na may adventure. Yeah, we’re very different like that. He wants adventure samantalang ako, I just want to go somewhere to relax and somewhere na pwede ako rumampa ng bathing suit ko.
ALVIN: Two piece ka ng two piece diyan, hindi ka naman nagswi-swimming!
Kanya kanyang trip yan, boy.
One night, we were watching TV and we saw this travel show. They were in a beach and were eating fresh seafood. Ang sarap tingnan!
ME: Babe! Yan sana gusto ko gawin sa pupuntahan natin sa anniversary. Kumain ng madaming fresh seafood!
ALVIN: Yan lang pala gusto mo eh. Dun tayo sa Dampa magpunta.
Bumawi naman lolo niyo now lang.
ME: Babe, isama ba natin si Anika sa anniversary trip natin.
ALVIN: Hindi na siguro. Tayong dalawa na lang.
Yessssssss… I’m so kilig!
While Anika and I were studying for Anika’s Science quiz tomorrow, nasa sala ang lolo niyo, nag-gigitara.
ME: Babe, can you please tone it down ng konti? It’s so loud.
ALVIN: Ay sorry. Gumagawa ako ng kanta.
And then I heard some of his lyrics: “You’re the only girl I loved…”
ANIKA: Tatay, what’s the title of your song?
Yesssssss ulit… Paki tingnan tingnan nga there baka matapakan niyo ang hair ko. Sobrang haba eh, umabot diyan sa inyo.
So where kaya in the Philippines should we go for our anniversary? Any suggestions, guys?
