I've been busy cleaning the upstairs of our house this morning and the past few days. My, how come there are lots of junks and stuffs in there. It was really a mess and there's hardly enough space to walk through. There are 2 small rooms up there and a hallway. One of the rooms is a guest room where my youngest brother sleep when he comes over. The other room is where I put some of our stuffs that we seldom use. It's like a storage room now. That used to be my bedroom when I was single. Everybody are sleeping on the first floor now and we seldom go upstairs. At the hallway is where my brother Celso put all their stuffs that can't be accommodated in their room. Boxes and clothes were piled up. As I was going through some of those boxes, I've found some letters from my college friends and what I did, I had to stop cleaning and read those letters again which were written to me way back in 1994. Hmmm...it's been that long and those letters are still there. After reading those letters, I threw them in the box going to the trash. I still have a lot of things to go through and then it was time for lunch so I had to stop.

Yesterday marked the 7th wedding anniversary of me and my hubby. It was the 2nd time that we celebrated it here in the Philippines. We bought a goat which my brother Albin butchered and we cooked kaldereta, kilawin and pinapaitan. We had also goulash, chop suey, fruit salad and papaya pickles. While we were cooking, it was raining so hard. I thought the people I invited would not be able to come because of the rain. I didn't invite a whole lot because we didn't cook that much. We invited our neighbors and close friends only and the celebration was held in our carport at 6:00 PM. Before we had dinner, my hubby welcomed and thanked everybody for coming. He quoted some verses in the Bible and just gave a short message. I was waiting for him to call me and speak too but instead he asked one of our guests who is a pastor to bless the foods. Then I stood up and told hubby that I will speak also. First I thanked everybody for coming and then I related to them how my hubby and I met. I told them our love story and how the good Lord had answered my prayers. It's been a long wait for me until I found my life partner whom God had given me. I got all their attention while I was talking and all their eyes were focus on me and it made me emotional. I closed my speech by thanking and praising God for giving me my perfect match. Then it was time to dig in the foods waiting on the buffet table. We had a great time.

We just got back our internet today after 8 days of no connection since somebody had stolen the phone lines in our area. I thought it would take longer before the company will fix it but I was mistaken. I'm again connected to the world wide web and I'm so glad. Having no internet is like having no connection to the other parts of the world and it's like my daily routine is not complete without it. I also missed updating this blog and visiting other blogs. Now I'm back to the blogosphere and it makes me glad.

It's been 3 days now since the phone lines going to our town were stolen and so we don't have phone and internet once again. Somebody must be in dire need and they stole the cable lines and most probably they sold it to have money. My gosh! Life is really getting harder and harder. I don't know how long until they can replace again the cable lines but I'm sure it will take a while just like last time. I'm here in the internet cafe again. I wish we will have our internet connection back soon.
