I Missed Blogging!

I've really missed blogging. Again, my apologies for being so neglectful on my part. Work skeds, trips, some minor worries - they all kept me away from updating! Gosh, it's been 2 weeks since I haven't updated! So guilty really bout it.

Where was I for two weeks?
Ok, shoot! Will tell. I was in Palawan last November 8-10, 2010 & I was having a whole lot of fun with my nursing school buddies. Thank GOD really for the gift of friendships! Sad part though was we LOOSSST the cam that captured most of our escapades to some dishonest fellows! However, it was a blast and we never regretted anything despite the lost cam.

When I got home from that wonderful getaway, I was faced with too many AM shifts that kept me from the cyberworld for a couple of days. When I finally had my off day last Tuesday, my niece also celebrated her 11th birthday with us and again, family went to another day out at Emar's Wavepool in Matina. End result? I've become dark but I think being tanned is the best description to the skin color I got to own now.

I'd really wanna make up for the days I never get to blog.
I hope I can update from time to time starting today!;)

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday.

Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Dolly Parton. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

What was your worst year in school? Why? **my 3rd year HS. We're tagged as the notorious section BUT it was the most unforgettable because of best kept memories!

Tell us about YOUR home. **Home is where my heart is, where all my beloved resides. We're all not perfect but we're happy!;)

What have you been told that you couldn’t do, but proved them wrong? **I was once warned by a 'hater' that I can't pass the board exam, but luckily, I did!;)

Lovin' Quality Time with Family

In my age right now, I have thoroughly appreciated each quality time spent with my family. That despite the trials we are facing, we still manage to combat them and thank GOD, we're still intact. This proves that despite some misunderstanding that we had, the family still matters the most to us.

These days, family gathering becomes frequent which I so appreciate! I am just thankful for having wonderful parents which I'll always be proud of, because they always find time to spend quality moments with us. I thank my Dad for being the financial provider for every precious moment spent.

I was lucky enough last weekend because my work sked cooperated. After my morning shift last Saturday, the 5 of us including my darling niece and my maternal cousin, headed to SM and watched a movie. We got to watch 'RED' starred by Bruce Willis. Tired as I was to the point that I slept in some parts of the movie, I still got this inner joy in my heart as I went to sleep on that day. The next day, I was surprised when I learned that we'd be having our videoke session. That Sunday night was really fun family moment to boast of.

Really I am very grateful for the gift of family - my family which can never be trade of for anything!

I LOVE you, my family!;)
