House Progress

Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve updated this.
Time passes by so quickly, no? You know what so many things have happened already and I can’t wait to share it. I must organize my thoughts first and start with one topic at a time or else I’ll end up rambling again.

Now let me share my good news. We visited our house in Taguig last weekend and it looks better and better.

The house is 2-storeys high. The first floor is divided into two – one side is a garage and the other is for business.  Second floor is our living area. It’s a little bit cramped because we had to put here 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area – all in 85 square meters! It’s our choice naman. Coz remember we got flooded last year. That’s the reason why we had to leave the house. This time we don’t want to take a chance. Alam mo naman sa Manila, flooding is the new norm. Ang hirap kaya maglimas!

This week the carpenters will be finishing the “palitada.” I’m glad but at the same time I’m afraid. Why you ask? I’m happy because “palitada” is so expensive. Money was literally pouring like water from our wallets this past few months. And it’s all for what – to hide the hideous hollow blocks. Buti if it’s for furniture already but no, it’s just to the cement. Sabi nga ni hubby and pera naging bato literally.

So why am I afraid naman? It’s because we have to buy so many things pa. Let me count them – we need a brand new gate, glass windows, floor tiles, 2 sinks, not to mention kitchen cabinets. Last but not the least, we need lots of furniture. Buti na lang we will only pay for dealer’s price for the furniture but the thing is by the time we get to that we may have run out of money na. haha

Anyway, I’m not complaining. This is a good investment naman.  I’m glad our kids will have a house they can call their home. They will have their own rooms. We can have a place to grow old in. Naks.

So here are some pictures that we took in our soon to be finished house.

Hopefully by Christmas we will spend it here. Wish us luck!

    Wow, congrats on your new home, Mommy Paula. We recently got our own home sweet home, too, and we are really, really grateful to God for this wonderful blessing. We spent our first Christmas and New Year there and we’re so thankful. Have you moved in to your new home already? What an amazing way to start the year! :-)
