How was your weekend?
Mine was uneventful. A little tiring but I’m still thankful it was uneventful.
You see, it was my maternal cousin’s birthday last Friday and they celebrated it at a quite popular resort here in Davao (Pearl Farm). We were all invited to come but my dad could barely get out of bed due to heavy medications and I had to work (no holiday for remote workers hehe).
My mum was going to turn down the invitation but my dad insisted we go. I told him I’d stay behind (and, by extension, Yuri) with him to be his nurse. And the rest was history. I was working on a holiday with a restless preschooler, and for the entire weekend, ran the household and tried not to get confused with what medicines my father needed to take at a specific time.
I couldn’t stand blood but sometimes I wish I took up nursing! Haha just kidding.
I also ended up filling up every possible container at home with water because there was an advisory of water interruption for 3 days. I guess I had an adrenaline rush (read: panic) because I easily filled up around 15 large Tupprrwares and Rubbermaids, 3 empty gallons of water, and a huge Orocan drum.
Guess what. We never lost our water. Oh well!
Meanwhile, my mum and sister enjoyed the weekend in Pearl Farm:
Looking at all of their photos from the trip, I decided to research and look for another beach resort to stay overnight in. Villa Amparo? Secdea? Now I know that a hot “rainy” season must be good for at least one thing!
Did you notice my new theme? I couldn’t resist and bought it from a designer on Etsy. I’ll write about it, along with my host provider, soon!
