Lady of the House :l

Ive had this experience before when mama would be away for 3 days tops, mostly for her camping trips at Baguio and seminars in Tagaytay. Sushal I know! She'd let me handle the finances for the house, and I have to admit, that I'm a failure. Most especially when I see Jollibee's face smiling at me, right after I step out of the bank, with the crispy, still hot bills freshly withdrawn from the ATM :) Srsly, why does Jollibee have to be built right in front of the banks? Advertising strategy, I know! (I hardly notice Chowking cause it's on the same side eh) And oh, I also love to treat my sisters once in a while, using the family's budget for the week, hehehe.

But I must say, I have improved a lot. Mama is with Sara in Las Pinas since Tuesday and I am again tasked to handle the household. Well, not really the entire household because: Papa does the laundry and cooking, Lisa does most of the cleaning and Shyla... well, Shyla does the 'tantrum episodes', 'rakes' clean clothes out of her closet, leaves her shoes around with her dirty socks.... those things that the youngest people in the house does :) And I, make sure everything is DONE according to my delight :) Except the things that Shyla does - I make sure that she cleans up after her mess, stat!

Untitled =)

I just dont know what to say. No. I cant seem to find the words on how to say IT. But I’m happy. Never been this happy! And I guess, just that alone is worth sharing and updating about.

My HAPPiNESS and I? Never been better. Sure we had our ups and downs but this is like the peak. If we were an ECG tracing we’d be Sinus Rhythm <3. (Wow I love that!) Maybe now I can say that we have so much history together already - given those 6 blissful years, but we still have a looong looong stretch ahead of us. This is not easy. This calls for maturation and responsibility. This calls for hard work, sleepless nights and thick wallets! But all the loving and hugging, kissing and laughing, and soon - all the cooing and smiling - just those things are reason enough for us to stay tight, put up with each other, and just be together.

And I can speak in behalf of MyHAPPiNESS because everytime I look into his eyes, all I see is the excitement and joy that this gives him. With that alone, I can sleep well at night. Because all I can wish for in our lifetime of togetherness is for everything in me, and for everything that I do - to make him the happiest man alive =) So much for wishful thinking huh?! I love seeing him happy. Because thats what he does to me. He perks me up like a cup of coffee (and I dont even drink coffee!). He’s my cherry on top (I don’t like cherries too!).

We have so much to be thankful and happy about, and we are just being thankful and happy!

This is how I look like with minimal make-up. Thank God for my BodyShop concealer! Dont ask for the NO MAKE UP look cause my eye bags are DRAGGIN ME TO HELL! hahaha! Fluids are starting to build up in my under eyes thats why.

Anyways, now, I know what Mommy (Timothy's mom) is saying about prettifying yourself. I love it. And I love that I finally have the ENERGY to do it.

Ciao! Till Next!

Greetings from the Carmelite Sisters!

Can I cry? Can I cry? Can I cry?

I just opened my Facebook about 5 minutes ago and I got a message from Father Pepe. Sorry, Ive gotten used to it but his real name is Rev. Father Felipe Pedraja. Yes, he's a facebooking priest, how cool is that?! And he was and still (I think) the school director of my HS school and I am so fond of him because he is just so cool! He never forgot me and he was always the one to greet me first (I know, nakakahiya diba sha pa una bumabati kase minsan hindi ko sha nakikita agad.) I know, you cant get over the idea of a priest that actually has a facebook account ( SO AM I!) and he found me there! He even gives comments on some of my posts and recently on my childhood pic and that of my boyfriend. Isnt he cool? Hahaha!

Well, his message says that he extends the greetings from the Sisters of Carmelites of Mary, the monastery of Carmelite sisters here in Tanay. And here's the buzz: Father Pepe said that they still remember me and kept on asking if I am still interested to join the monastery.

Oh my God, Oh my God!
BTW, I made sure that in my reply to Father Pepe that I didnt used those words coz you know, it's like using the name of the Lord in vain. So I'm saying them now.
Oh My god, Oh My God!


Of course, being the cool priest that he is, he said that he told Sister Rebecca - I dont even remember who she is! - that I already have a boyfriend but Sister said that its ok because she also had a boyfriend before she entered the convent. Haha!

Me? A sinner to take the bows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience? Wait, is that also their vows or is that only for the Sisters of St. Paul?

I was like - I didnt know how to react. Honestly, Im just so happy that they still remember me. I dont know if Father Pepe was just making it up or what (hahaha sorry Father!) pero you know what made me sure they really remember me? Its because they remembered what we talked about when I made my first - and that wont be my last now that I know- visit there on that rainy evening 8 years ago.

Yep. It was 8 years ago but they still remembered. The sisters and I had a little chat and they asked me if I have a desire to be a Sister. I dont know why they asked me pero I think it was because of my name Camela which sounds like theirs, Sisters of Carmel. I said that sometimes I am fascinated with people like them and yes, there was a time that I wanted to be one. And it was true! I did. Kaya lang mas nangibabaw yung dream ko na maging astronaut. hehehe.

I will have to admit, I totally forgot everyone there. All I have are the memories that I had there, which was very few because it was only 1 night. I was there last year for the Vicita Iglecia and yes, I remembered that night with the sisters pero that was it. OMG. I wanna cry.Like cry.

I didnt know that all these years, there are people - blessed people - praying for me. I remembered Sir Joel said na malakas yung Carmelite sisters kay Papa God kaya when they asked me for my intentions I said of course for me and my family's health.

I feel so blessed. It lifted my spirits. That message was really unexpected but it made my day, hell it made my week!

What will Timothy think kaya? If I'll be a Sister will he still love me? LOL!

Thank God for the blessings!

Geez.

I Am bound to not take more than 1 cup of caffeine until after this ordeal. But I just had 1 regular sized Coke this morning. Im sorry BEiH, I cant help it.

I want to go to med school! But I cant!

Geez.

I Hate It.

I have to admit. Multiply is my life. It was. But for the past few weeks that I have been HOME, I wasnt bugged by my conscience to write. And then after weeks of not writing or even opening my account there voila! I hate the new look. I hate the inbox! Ok I dont hate it but I was inlove with the BEFORE set-up and I really dont think there is any need for an upgrade - if you call it that. And as for now, I have decided - OR I AM STILL THINKING- that I will use blogspot for my blogging needs / desires. I am disappointed with MULTIPLY but I love the many layouts so I will still update it of course. But for the next 6 months or so, I will be playing on facebook. Not facebooking with friends entirely but playing on Sorority Life! I Love et!

That would be all for now - until the next writer's itch!
Goodvibes everyone :)
