Holy Week 2018

Just like that, Holy Week is finally over. I was looking forward to this holiday because I know that we can have a long vacation. It is a good time to go out of town or out of the country but unfortunately, we were not able to travel because we had a home project and my mom went back to the Philippines. Though we did not travel, our Holy Week was quite busy too.

Palm Sunday 

If you read my post last week, you already knew that we went to Acuaverde Beach Resort last Palm Sunday. My husband treated my in-laws for an early summer getaway since he will be busy the following weeks. Check my post here.

Holy Monday and Tuesday

Last January, my husband already contacted a contractor for a small project at home, we already scheduled the date but for some reasons, the contractor did not show up. Grrr. We looked for another contractor, but the rate is too steep, so we did not get it. Finally, we found another one and he was able to finish everything in just two days and we only spent half of the rate of the second contractor. Imagine, two days lang ginawa compared sa 4 days na sinasabi ni 2nd contractor. I just realized, na kaya baka hindi natuloy yung mga nauna kasi mas makakahanap pa kami ng mura at mas okay gumawa.

Holy Wednesday

I was happy that our home project was done in two days so I have time to finish my errands. We need to go to the bank before the long vacation, ang haba ng pila sa bank parang nag last minute bank transaction din ang mga tao.

Holy Thursday 

It was the year 2008 when we first visited Caleruega and since then it became my husband’s happy place so every year, we always visit this church every Holy Week. Last week was our 10th year anniversary, naka-isang dekada na pala kami.

Good Friday and Black Saturday

My mom is back to the Philippines so we spent our holiday at my brother’s house because my mom stays there. We also visited my grandmother in Bulacan, it was like a mini-reunion. The most exciting part is my mom gave us our favorites from Norway. Yey! Ang hirap magcontrol na naman ng “less sweets”.

Easter Sunday 

After church, we went to SM Megamall and ate lunch at Abe. They went shopping but my family went home na to avoid the traffic.

Now back to reality, I need to finish my laundry, iron clothes and clean the house because my mom will stay at our house this coming week. The busy mode is on again.
