Fast Forward and December is almost Here!

It feels so good to be back on my blog. I haven't really had the time to update my blogs since January because I have been quite busy. To make the story short, we moved out of town again just like what we did in 2015 because of work related opportunity. My husband got hired to teach English at the middle school and he jumped on that offer for experienced purposes. He actually had three offers from different cities in Texas two of those offers are for Social Studies and lastly for English. I am proud to say that my husband are both licensed to teach English Language, Arts and Reading (ELAR), ESL and Social Studies. He's planning to get more certifications to further his knowledge as well as his opportunity at the school.

By the way, there's so many things that happened to us since January. We both celebrated our birthdays in April and September and our wedding anniversary month is coming up and we are looking to celebrate our 11th year of being husband and wife. We are also residing in Texas and we are only 20 minutes away from the nearest beach. The beach is one of the many factors why my husband decided to accept the offer to teach English here. My husband always love the beach more than myself probably because I grew up in an island and having the beach around me is a way of life unlike him who grew up in Texas that does not have any beach around.

Also, we had experienced our first hurricane (Harvey) since moving here last August. It was scary and we have to be evacuated for safety purposes. We experienced being burglarized while we were away due to the hurricane and it was really traumatic for both of us because we cannot fathom that despite the circumstances evil people still managed to used the situation to take advantaged of other people. Luckily, things that were taken from our place were replaceable although some things hold a special place in my heart

We are looking forward for Thanksgiving because we are going back to El Paso to visit family and friends. Other than that, we are doing well and still adjusting. We are so grateful that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ never left us and they have been taken care of us ever since. We are forever grateful for all the blessings we have received today, tomorrow and throughout the years to come. Advance Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy New Year to all

Time sure does fly really fast when you least expect it. Last month, me and my husband celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We had such a blast during your anniversary pictorial. We decided to do it especially that we had done some pictorial when we celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary before.

Well, we are still back in El Paso and we are still looking for better opportunities around the surrounding cities. As of right now, we are both working at the school district which is actually good because we had so much time off from work. Also, it would be great to have more hands on experience especially that I am planning to do this full time in the future.

Anything new for you guys to talk about? Hit me up and leave a message below! Happy New Year to all and remember I am praying that everyone will have a bountiful New Year! Have a good one and God Bless Us All!

Our Latest Update!

Hey y'all we are back in El Paso since June 11th after my spouse decided to find a job closer to home. So far, he receives plenty of interviews but no one hasn't hired him for a permanent position. We are back to square one which is not easy but we are praying hard that all our plans will fall into places soon. He is back to substituting at the school district although we might still have a big chance of moving out of town again before the end of this year. He is still waiting for several job opportunities he applied outside of El Paso to confirm whether or not he is hired so we can move there as soon as possible.

I have been somewhat sad and discourage especially that I haven't been doing what I love which is working and earning my own money. I've been wanting so bad to go back to my old job but I don't want to leave on a bad note if again I need to quit to be with my husband. I did make myself busy ones again by doing online surveys as well as I'm back in my coupon hobby. I guess that's my latest update about what's up with us. I hope everyone is having a blast during their summer vacations and what not. Take care folks and keep that prayers coming our way!

4 Months and Counting....Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my readers across the globe. It has been four months since I left El Paso, Texas and moved into a small town called Beeville which is also located in Texas. Life here is quite different that what I got used too while living back in El Paso. Beeville is very peaceful town, everyone knows everyone and there's nothing much to do here over the weekend. My spouse and I normally spend our weekend either in San Antonio or Corpus Christi.

Mind you, we get homesick almost everyday because we don't really have any friends that we can visit here or hang out with. Anyways, I am glad to tell you that we are surviving and we are doing just fine. Hubby has been teaching for over five months and so far so good. He is thinking of renewing his contract but he isn't sure if he will push-through with the plan. One thing we don't like about living here is the drive from here to El Paso. The drive is what kills us especially when we visit El Paso for special occasion or when we have time off from school. The drive back and forth is a total of 20 hours.

We spent our Thanksgiving in El Paso and we stayed for a week. We had so much fun with families both in Las Cruces and El Paso. Three weeks later, we had another two weeks time off from school for Christmas and New Year. By the way, I am working for the same school district that my husband got hired as a teacher. I work as a substitute teacher for all school level but I normally worked at the high school where my spouse is a teacher. The job itself is very challenging compared to what I am used to in El Paso. I deal with teenagers and they can be very difficult to get along at times. I have to follow protocols and make sure that all the instructions from their respective teachers are followed.

Honestly, we never stop praying that one day we can go back to El Paso and settle there for good. I love El Paso and considered it my second home after the Philippines. I hope and pray that everyone will have a better year this year and that may our goals will come true. God bless us all and until next time. See you around!!!!!

Moving in a New Place

I welcome myself back on my own blog that I have created for over five years. I really haven't had a chance to update this blog but I'm glad I finally come back to my senses especially that I just moved to a new place. Since January of this year a lot of things happened with my life. My husband applied for a job in another city in Texas and got a lot of offers. To make the story short, my husband took the teaching job in a small city called Beeville which is 45 minutes away from Corpus Christi and two hours away from San Antonio.

But before he got this teaching job offer he went for a six week training to become a full time Correctional Officer. He did like the training at first but it was so hard for us to be apart. We made the decision to be apart temporarily especially that I was still working at that time. We finally made it and moved to this little city. My husband and I are both homesick and we are looking forward to go back to El Paso in November for Thanksgiving.

Anyway, we are both surviving in this new strange place. Hopefully, we will back in El Paso next year.

Happy New Year Folks! What's New?

I have lost interest to update you guys about what I have been up too since late November of last year. As a matter of fact, I could not believe that I still remember my password and username for my three blogs. This main blog will turn seven years later this year and I feel so guilty that I haven't been active unlike when I first started in 2008.

There are a lot of things that changed since late last year and that includes our move to the north east side of the city. We are fortunate to have a friend who offered us to do house sitting while they are out of the country in exchange for free rent. We thought about the offer for many months and it is in our best interest to accept their offer. Their house is a two story house and has four bedrooms. My husband and I had plenty of room to roam around the house unlike the apartment we have before. The only thing that I am not a fan about the location is the drive back and forth.

Also, I have some good news I'd like to share with all of you guys. Guess what? My husband got a job offer from out of town and we are looking forward for another adventure. Well, I am not a huge fan of moving again but it looks like opportunity finally comes knocking through our door. Both my husband and I like the idea of starting fresh this year and we can't wait for whatever this future has to offer for us.

The good thing about the city we will be moving into is that it is both one of our favorite cities in Texas to visit every year. We are so close to the beach as well as the other surrounding big cities in the areas. But if there are other job opportunities here in El Paso then we are willing to stay here for good.

What about you guys? Anything new? Please leave your comments below. May all of us have a great week ahead!

Rest in Peace Robbie

I haven't been updating all my blogs for over a month now and I feel so guilty because I love to update my readers on what is happening with me and my spouse. First of all, we loss a great member of my husband's family last November 1, 2014 and this is by far the hardest thing anyone had to go through especially with our entire family and close friends. I cannot give a lot of details about this for now since it is still under investigation. The entire community of El Paso, Texas loss a great citizen, a father, a brother, a son and a well respected member of our local enforcement. We are still in great sadness but together as a family we will do our best to get by and remember all the happy memories with my husband's step brother. We are hoping that justice will be done. May you rest in peace brother!
