I've had a lot of ups and downs about the five straight days without work. Downs because of the unfortunate kababayans that had to evacuate their homes to evacuation centers, those who totally lost their homes and those who had far worse mishaps than just losing their belongings, but their loved ones.
Typhoon Maring stayed in our territories for quite a while. Though milder compared to Ondoy, it's still a disaster to some parts of Luzon. All we could do was pray for everyone, stay safe ourselves by staying home and make the most of our time at home together. The flood was an unwelcome guest in our home for the last two days, as well as the emergency budget alloted to instant house re-construction to prevent the flood from coming in. Kayo ba binaha din muthers?

The typhoon "staycation" also meant more bonding time with my kids. So that's the sunshine in my off-work days. I got to do the following:
- Cook for the family.
- Do the laundry.
- Organize Things In The House
- Bond with kids. Singing. Dancing. Playing.
- Movie Time with Hubby.
- Wake up later than usual.
- Pamper Myself.
