Reflections

I had a falling out with my cousin because I stopped
talking to her. She spanked my child which was unacceptable
to me. So I didn't speak to her for 4 years

Then last Sunday I saw her and I talked to her and
though I can't forget what she did to my son. I
just learned to let it go and moved on from that incident.

Then I realized that maybe that's the reason that I
was sent back to the Philippines.To fix loose ends,
fix the bridges and mend relationships.
St Therese once said that Where You are right now is where you are meant to be.
(Make sense!!)So I'll wait and wait till God says that it's time
to leave. Lately the odds are stacked against us. It's like
everything and everyone is pulling us to stay here. Even If I want
to go and leave.

And So I say Thy Will be done Lord!!! Thy will be done

Twilight

Yes!!! I've seen it and I really liked it.. I'm a big
vampire fan and I've read a lot of Anne Rice novels.
The story is not as complicated as the Anne Rice vampire novels.
The story brought out the inner teenager in me.
I felt like I was in high school all over again swooning
over the lead character. They made it simple and so sweet.
Very Uncomplicated!I know that there's a lot of nitpicking
when it comes to the book not being true to the movie.
I've never read the book but If I did. I don't think I'd
mind. I guess you can know by now that I really liked
the movie A LOT!!!

Now I can't wait to read the book and gush out about
Edward and Bella all over again

A message

Just when I started to fall in to depression again my best friend sent me an offline message.All this is just temporary. Patience is a virtue. God is listening to your prayers. Keep praying and remember that everything in life has a purpose and a reason behind it. God bless and take care. I know that God is working through her because she knew what I was going through even I didn't say it and she doesn't read my blogs.God is great indeed!!

Single Ladies Single Man Beyonce Mashup

Highly Amusing!!

Pondering

I know I may sound ungrateful or whatever but the
truth is I'm not happy here in the Philippines.
In all honesty i feel like I don't belong here anymore.
I feel like I don't fit in anymore. Initially I was
happy to be home and enjoyed the life the we left behind.
But after the novelty wore off I began to say what now?
What next?

Though I was only gone for 18 months.
I got used to the fact that we were on our
own and that we had to make our own decisions.
The move was the best thing we ever did.We
became a stronger family. Now that we're home
some people think that they have a say
as to how we run our lives.
I don't like it at all but I can't say it out loud
because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
I don't want to be branded as ungrateful.
I'm so grateful for the love the help and the support.
In my heart I know that Philbert and I did what we thought is
the best for our family and I still do.
But somehow I find myself thinking about the what if's.

That's why I'm itching to migrate and to move
again to give it another shot and start anew.
I know that they say that there's no place
like home. But why does it feel like this
isn't for us anymore?

Annoyed!

We were out of town last Sunday.
I thought we were going home the same day but
Mr Driver decided that we should stay overnight.
I was agitated because I wanted to go home.
After dinner FIL and Mr Driver
decided to have a few drinks.

Then for some reason FIL turned to me and
started talking and telling me things that
I'm not doing right. He was telling me how I'm not
doing it right in as far as how I run my household
and how lenient I was with the househelp.
Then he compared me to my SIL. why couldn't
I do it like my SIL. did it she had a big house
and she could handle her household efficiently stuff like that.
I was so annoyed because that was so unfair. She was a different
level altogether. I'm never gonna be as great
as she was. This was the clincher while my FIL. was
ranting his son sided with him and said yes I agree with you!
Yes she is wrong! He went on said I keep telling
the maid that I don't like what they're doing
and she kept defending them.
Whatever happened to if you can't say anything
nice then don't say anything at all.

Then MIL turned to me and said we're just saying this
things because you need to know. I hope you don't get offended!
After all the things that you said and you expect me
NOT to be offended.

I don't know if I overreacted by feeling this way.
I didn't say anything to them about how I felt.
I just didn't want to make it an issue.
I decided to cool off and not attend their
gatherings for awhile. If Mr.Driver wants to go he
can go there bring the kids with him or he can go alone.
But I'm not going with him.

Temecula man sought in fatal hit-and-run caught after car chase
By JEFF HORSEMAN
The Press-Enterprise

A Temecula man charged in connection with the hit-and-run deaths of a Winchester family this summer was apprehended Thursday after a car chase and a crash into an Upland house, San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies said.

Deputies in Rancho Cucamonga attempted to stop a car driven by Chad Isaac Huber, 31, around 4 p.m. after determining it was stolen, said Sgt. Dave Phelps, a sheriff's spokesman.

Huber failed to stop and led police on a 2-mile car chase into Upland, Phelps said. He crashed into a house and fled on foot, Phelps added.

Huber then entered an unlocked house, Phelps said. The home's residents ran out and alerted deputies and Upland police.

Officers entered the house and arrested Huber, who was bitten by a police dog, Phelps said. He is being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

Huber is charged with three counts of murder and hit-and-run causing death. Investigators believe Huber was responsible for a June 29 accident near Lake Skinner in southwestern Riverside County that killed Andres San Agustin, 48, his wife, Maribeth Pagaspas San Agustin, 36, and their 4-year-old son, Angelo.

The San Agustins were returning from a party around 8 p.m. when a pickup collided with the family's Chevrolet Malibu, driving over most of the driver's side length of the car, running off the road and coming to rest on its roof.

Police said another truck traveling with the pickup stopped to pick up Huber and fled the crash scene.

Just before the crash, witnesses reported seeing a large, raised pickup in the area traveling 75 to 100 mph.

Investigators interviewed the pickup's owner, Huber's estranged wife, who told them Huber drove the truck and sometimes drank at a Winchester bar. The bartender there told police Huber had been at the bar for about an hour before the crash and drank four shots, two beers and a mixed drink. Jarred Abatti, 23, of Banning, was arrested shortly after the crash. Police said he helped Huber flee.

Abatti identified Huber as the driver and said his friend was "obviously intoxicated," according to an arrest warrant declaration.

Following the crash, Huber called police to report his truck was stolen. He said he was vacationing with his girlfriend at the Sheraton Hotel in San Diego when his truck was taken, and he suggested to CHP officers his wife had something to do with the alleged theft, court records indicate.

Investigators checked with the hotel, which reported that Huber had not been staying there. Reach Jeff Horseman at 951-375-3727 or jhorseman@PE.com

Missing Ate

I miss her everyday. I wish she was still just a
phone call away. I miss the advice, the listening
ear and the laughter. I miss her so much.
The holidays are coming and I feel bad that
I don't feel the holiday spirit. Because I'm so
full of sadness and I'm grieving over her loss.
Honestly, I haven't started anything yet as far
as shopping for gifts is concerned.
Siguro man lang for the kids mag shopping ako ng gifts.

Wala naman akong regrets sa mga di ko nasabi.
Lahat kami malungkot na wala na sila. Ganun pala
talaga pag mabait kang tao talagang people would
be vocal about how they miss you and how much they
love you.

Addicted to Plurk

I'm addicted to Plurk. I post first thing in the morning and post before I go to bed
At first it's kind of weird to be posting whatever it is that your doing.
Parang twitter ba??But after I got the hang of
it I really like it.Since I know most of the people that I
plurk with.May nagpost ng statement dun asking kailangan
ba i announce sa plurk ang isang sensitive na bagay.Parang
natamaan ako kasi feeling ko she was alluding to me.
Since sensitive is relative I asked her how sensitive is sensitive?
Hahaha!!! Talagang parang tinablan ako. Oh well I just have to be
careful next time about what I say or post for that matter.
