My husband was on leave since December 18 and that was the last day of my son in school too so it was really a long vacation for us. It is a good time to have a vacation but we did not have any grand vacation, we just had a staycation. Literal na staycation sa bahay, we just had one day trip at Canyon Cove.
We wanted to go to Baguio and Sagada after Christmas but when we checked the hotels around the first week of December, fully booked na lahat. I got tired of checking so baka di pa time na umalis.
Anyway, back to my supposed to be year end post; 2015 is a challenging year for us when it comes to health. As early as January, I’ve been going to the hospital for my check-up and laboratory test for UTI and June came, I’m battling with severe psoriasis. Last month of December 2015, we went to pedia-dentist and pedia-optha for my son’s check-up. We received his annual physical exam last November so we made appointment for check-up.
2015 is a year of adjustment because of my husband’s business trip. I always say that I can’t be an OFW wife because I’m so dependent on my husband and I feel so alone when he’s not at home but slowly I’m adjusting to his schedules and learning to do the things that I need to do when he is not around.
2015 is a year of learning, I started joining webinar and my husband attended seminars for personal and work related.
2015 is a year of realization. I realized a lot of things like life is so short and we never know when God will call us home so let us enjoy life to the fullest. Be thankful for the gift of life so even life is so hard because of my severe psoriasis, I’m still trying my best to live for my husband and son.
My son is no longer a baby, he is in a stage that he is so curious about anything so I really need be a good role model to him. I need to watch my actions and words because someone is watching me. I have to remind myself that “I’m not only raising a little boy but I’m raising someone’s future husband and father”.
Change is the only permanent thing in the world, we can’t predict the future so we need to prepare, save and invest for the future. Well, bago humaba pa intro ko, let me reflect what happened in 2015.
As I mentioned earlier, as early as January we are going to the hospital. I had UTI and need to undergo KUB IVP. At the same month, my son had fever so we went to Asian ER. He had labtest like urinalysis, CBC and platelet test. He has been absent for 4 days, good thing that it was a preschool week so no classes, only activities. We also renewed our passport in DFA Alabang.
We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary in Nurture Wellness Village, we had glamping. We watched Field Demo of my son in school.
My mom and aunt came home for vacation, we had Day Trip in Canyon Cove. My son had Investiture + Day Camp and of course Graduation Day.
I did not enroll my son in any summer class because he did not like it but I persuaded him to try McDonald’s Kiddie Crew.
We had short vacation in Pangasinan, we had sidetrip in Bolinao.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday in Crosswinds Resort Suites. Before June ends I started my phototherapy and until now I’m still under medication but I’m thankful that my skin is 60% okay and I’m praying that I will be healed soon.
We had staycation in Acuatico Beach Resort and Hotel.
I celebrated my birthday in Four Seasons Hotpot and DreamPlay.
We received the card and my son got gold eagle seal so we treated him in Lazerxtreme.
My mom came home before November ends so we spent our long weekend in Valenzuela.
December is a super busy month because of holiday preparations and Christmas get together. We went back to Canyon Cove for our last travel for year 2015. I will blog about it soon.
Despite all the challenges, 2015 is still a good year for our family. But I’m hoping that we could have a long vacation this 2016 kahit ang konti ng long weekend.
