Friday Fragments: The Search Is Over

Mommy's Idea

It's Friday indeed! Look how time flew so fast... 

For the previous two weeks,  me and my hubby are in terrible dilemma: finding a place to stay. Anyway, allow me to share again to you the happenings for the whole week. But before that, please read this featured post on my other blog so you can really follow our story...

Accommodation For Free?

Saturday- Hubby and I went to my colleagues' place, the one whom I am referring to on my featured post. We just went there to see the motorcycle that we planned to buy on him (on installment basis as we initially agreed). It is already used but still functioning well. When we get there, he opened up again about offering his house for us to stay for free. As if left with no choice, hubby and I decided to take the offer considering that it is the only option that was left for us on that very moment. We just badly need a place to stay. Together with his wife, they presented there vacant garage. A little renovation, he said, will do. He also gave us another option, which is their room since they can use the room of their son who is in Manila applying for abroad. (They were the only one left in the house because their younger daughter was in Manila as well reviewing for Architecture exam). We went back to church that day with  our mind already made up to transfer on the following day.

Sunday- We go back to their place right after the service to finally talk to them about their offer. So we all agreed to have a share on utility bills. The couple are so kind and really very much understanding.

Monday- Supposedly we are about to transfer however we got a problem transporting our things because it was raining so we decided to spend the night on the church. We just informed the couple that we cannot make it that night as promised.

Tuesday- Finally we made it and it is our first night there. The feeling isn't that easy at first but they tried to make us feel comfortable as much as possible. Hubby is not feeling well again.

Wednesday- Waking up in new environment is a strange feeling. The couple wake up so early. We went to school together. My hubby was left alone to arrange our things. He is still not feeling well again during that time.

Thursday- a day before my birthday. We went home late because I have a late night class. I wasn't able to overcome yet the shyness (or was it the right term?) But the couple are really so kind that they really welcome us with all hospitality.

Friday- my 30th. Yes it is! We didn't went home there, instead we went home to my parents. We just informed them that we are not going home that night.

I know that our stay there was not for good.. but I am very much thankful that there are such generous people like them who still exist on this very practical world...

That's it... the Search is over (as for now...)

Though we are still praying that somebody, we could really have a house that we can call our own!

Thanks for following... Hope to see you next week!
God bless.
hubby and I @ the office

Friday Fragments #2: The Search Continues...

Mommy's Idea

Thank God it's Friday!

I want to think positively today while recollecting the events from the past week... This is just a continuation from the previous week (of course!)

Let's start from Saturday (since I ended up reminiscing on Friday last week)

Saturday- My Hubby took a day off from the church activity. We stay the whole day in my mother's house per advice by his personal doctor (none other than, yours truly :). His condition gets better already. We just watch the live coverage of the Golden Float and Drum and Bugle contest on television (It's our city fiesta celebration). I am looking forward to a long vacation since there is no work on Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday- We went to church and proceed to my sister-in-law's house for lunch right after taking some pose before the camera (that's what we usually did after the service:). We thought we could already load our things to our supposedly new location, however, the place was not vacated yet, according to the house owner. I was truly dismayed during that time. We still have to wait until September 8 (a  day before my 30th?). Oh before I forgot, it's our 4th Monthsary! We had dinner at Izzy's Cafe then we spend the night at the church.

Monday- It's Monday and still we have no permanent place to stay, so frustrating indeed. Instead of thinking too much about our situation, hubby and I decided to go with our brethren on a get-together at Spring View Resort. Well, we really have so much fun. At least it relieves us from stress (for a while).

Tuesday- Hubby and I went to the mall. We had a food trip! We had pizza slices, beef siomai, black tea and zago! We enjoyed the moment while watching the kids playing rides. We then proceed to my sister-in-law whose son celebrated his 11th birthday.Then we spend the night at my parent's house.

Wednesday- Back to work indeed! and I was late :( Hubby and I decided to find another place to stay but still to no avail. But we are still trying to seek help from our friends. We spend the night at the church.

Thursday- Am not feeling well. I threw up to a very unlikely place and it's really embarrassing. Good thing I have my very supportive co-teachers who assisted me. I dismissed my class early I just gave them an assignment to work on for the next meeting... Hubby fetched me in school. We spend another night at the church.

Friday- Yah it's already Friday and still we have no permanent place to stay... I am looking forward for another week better than this week... hopefully. I don't wanna come to a point where in I will give up praying as well (God forbids!) And I should end up here

What a long week indeed with full of struggles and challenges. I am still thankful that we're able to survive... There has a lesson to be learned with what we have experienced... Yes, a valuable lesson to be learned.

How about you, my friend? How's your week? Share it with us at Friday Fragments and link it to Half-Past Kissin' Time.

Friday Fragments: It's My First Time

Mommy's Idea

Well the calendar says that the first day of the week is Sunday, therefore I could start recollecting this week's happening with positive vibes:

Sunday: It was our Church's 25th Anniversary and at the same time it is our Executive Pastor's 40th++ birthday. We have it celebrated at one of the prestigious hotels in our place. It's pretty obvious that everyone was really having fun including delegates from our daughter churches. However, it rained so hard that night that transportation in going back home is quite difficult (for us who don't have wheels).

Monday: My hubby and I didn't report for work and planned to spend the rest of the day resting. I am not feeling well at that time too (cough and cold). However, a sudden turn of events unexpectedly happen. We need to have an emergency exit from our place for valid and considerable reason. Instead of having a restful day, it was quite stressful packing all our belongings and thinking of a place to transfer to and means of transportation for all our things. I was also given a chance to bid good bye to our dear friend, Blackie. It rained so hard again in the afternoon, good thing it was only for a shorter period of time (answered prayer). There was also a problem about the place where we are supposedly staying, they no longer have it for rent so we have no other choice but to leave all our things in one of the vacant rooms in our church(for free without baggage fee :). We went home to my mother to stay for a night and it was also her birthday.

Tuesday: I was late in coming to the office. My other's place is quite far and it took almost 30 minutes to travel. I haven't recovered yet from my present dilemma but i lift it all to God. I know He will never forsake us. We are more like vagabonds with no permanent place to stay. Carrying our big traveling bag, we went to my mother-in-law to stay there for a while. She also negotiated the owner of the room where we are going to stay though the room will be vacant until Saturday. She paid for the One month advance, one month deposit payment.

Wednesday: Same set-up we went home to my hubby's mother and spend another night there. Hubby is not feeling well.

Thursday: Hubby is not feeling well he did not report. I went home alone. We are still staying with his mother.

Friday: His condition gets worst. He still reported for work...

This week may not be that good for us but we are still hopeful for a wonderful experience for the days to come... I am still positive that everything happens for a reason. We may not understand it now but I know God will reveal it to us... There might be a lesson that He wants us to learn... God is watching us anyway ;)
