The husband would always tell me to delegate.
Yes, you’re both tired. But there are still a lot of bills to pay and chores to finish. Life, though, isn’t all about work and responsibilities. Consider, too, that you need to take the time out of your busy schedules to connect as a couple. Book a night out at least once a month; it would do good for your sanity and your relationship. Momi Berlin lines up a few fun yet affordable date night ideas.
Most young ladies would go through many milestones in life, having that first boyfriend included. For them, it is pretty much exciting, perhaps overwhelming. But have you ever thought how parents deal with such kind of news? For the moms and dads who already had their first love and first romantic relationship, they may most probably be overprotective of their princess. But such overprotectiveness may boil into strict orders and misunderstanding. Momi Berlin then shares ways on how parents may handle their daughter’s first boyfriend.
I haven’t experienced a grand wedding. Ours was a surprise one and very abrupt. Even I as a bride wasn’t prepared. I didn’t know we will be tying the knot that day.
Though there was no knot to tie in the first place. We had a civil wedding. We never had yellow gold wedding bands. What we bought that day from a nearby pawnshop was a ring for my groom. While I used the gold ring my father gave to me on my graduation. But of course, there were a few beautiful and unique wedding bands on display like those you would see at Jeulia. Only that we have a limited budget that time.
Going through my draft page, I’ve got to read a lot of my past. And from those, I got to relearn things. This piece was written last April 17, 2012. A reminder that never again will I decide based on self-interest. Read on and may you learn something valuable as well.
Last night, I fetched the kids from momi’s house, which is about 500 meters away from our house. We were walking, each with small bags on our shoulders, carrying food, clothes, and toys. I was too tired myself. After arriving from work, I – without delay – tidied up momi’s house. Picked up the kids’ mess. Washed dishes. Swept the floor. Etc. After all the cleaning, we left the place and walked to ours.
Uy wag mong murahin. Linisin mo na lang hehe. (Don’t curse. Clean the mess.) Told you he won’t change overnight or he won’t change period. Either you will accept, adjust, or kill yourself with anger.
Instead of properly addressing my concern, I turned to a friend to complain. Of course, she can’t do anything than comfort me. Perhaps comfort is what I need the most more than change. After all, they all say that you can’t train old dog new tricks.
I do not know how to put it nicely. I do not feel being nice either-
My husband grew up giving importance to putting food on the table first than cleaning the table. He isn’t at all bothered with any mess around.
