a year after

Posted in Everyday Life, Random Thoughts with tags , on April 15, 2010 by kaleidoscopelife

To mark my one year hiatus from this blog I decided to make a post. LOL. I can’t believe it has been a year since my last post, where did time go? I won’t bore you with the reasons why I haven’t blogged but to give you an idea, I was occupied with the running/managing of Décor Haven, a shop in Dipolog that my MIL opened May of last year. See the logo below, I made that! (digi scraps do come in handy)

this is the photoshop file

nothing beats the feeling of seeing the end result…

We also moved to a new apartment that same month. So I had to pack and unpack our 7 years worth of stuff. Not a task for the faint hearted I tell yah. 🙂

June was a FUN and busy month with my sister and her family and also my brother coming home from the US and SG respectively. So much to do, so little time.  But it was FUN, FUN, FUN. I was sad when they went home but that is the reality for us.

wacky family (including the one behind the camera)

July came and went…

August, my little guy turned 2! We had a simple “salo-salo” to celebrate his second year.

Ondoy happened late September! It took us a few months to recover from the catastrophe.

our floating ref and washing machine

Oh well, December is always a busy month for everybody, so there! Plus no househelp for the whole month kidda gets your mind off blogging and scrapping.

Christmas Eve

Meralco Compound

sorting the goods  from our relatives in the US for the Ondoy victims

January, the whole family went to Dipolog to attend a relative’s wedding. Zach was the ring bearer, his first!

the one who got away…

I’ve been scrapping on and off since late last year but never got the chance to share. Will do in the next few weeks.  (hopefully)

So there you go my whole year in a nutshell. This is not baaaad… one post to sum up my whole year. LOL. Okay I’m kidding but really it’s not a bad idea! 🙂

I did say I won’t bore you with my blah…blah…blah, so bye for now.

jan-30fighting for computer time

In a few years, this little guy will be fighting us for computer time. Even as early as now he wants to play with it already! Every time he passes by this area, he would automatically reach for the keyboard and mouse. And also, he would look at the monitor and say “To” (short for Tito) because he often sees my brother who we usually talk through a video call.

Went to Megamall today to meet up with the owner of this van. We’ve been looking for a van for a few weeks now and I think we finally found it! One of the reasons we want a van is the size and this one is perfect. It is spacious and it looks well maintained.

Jasper left for Baguio last night and came home this evening with strawberries in hand. His timing was perfect coz’ I was about to get myself a midnight snack. I got myself a bowl of strawberries and ate half of it before I took this picture, thus, the half empty bowl. 🙂 Anyway, he went there to meet up with PMA officials and discuss business.
