I was at the funeral with my husband, mother, uncle and sister. But for some reason all of us including the dead body ended up in the middle of the road. The body was out of the coffin. It was embalmed and yet still alive. I was not sure if he was my father or my uncle. But he looked at me so angry. Whatever I have done to him, it must be pretty bad. The look in his eyes was as sharp as knife. I was so scared and I was hiding behind my husband. Then, the body started to smell. My mother and my uncle decided to burn the body right there in the middle of the road. The hungry fire ate it for only a very short time. But my sister was mad. She wanted to tell everyone what my mother and uncle have done. So, I was following her wherever she went to convince her not to tell anyone since our mother was involved in it. We were on the top of the building and on the top of the tree (I was a pretty good climber, I guess), and walking on the small branch of the tree trying to talk to her out of it. Then I heard a sound, it's getting louder and louder and louder. Then, I opened my eyes. It was my alarm clock waking me up.

Ahhh... Thank you God. It was just a dream. It was scary.

I got up scared and was still shaking up when I was taking a shower. My dream was still playing in my head. I tried to think what made me dream like that. Then, I realized yesterday I had so many things going on which bothered me mentally and emotionally. I went to bed with my mind and heart not in peace.

I hate bad dreams.

The phone rang at around 3:00pm. I did not pick it up thinking it was some kind of tele-marketing since it was too early for my friends to call. But I was waiting just in case the caller will leave a message. And she did. "Hello! This is Liezel from the Philippine Consulate. This message is for Gerelyn Tundag." Huh! I was so scared. The moment I heard the Philippine Consulate, I knew it was about the processing of my Passport Extension. My hand was shaking as I picked up the phone. I was hoping it was not a bad news since my husband had already bought the tickets for our trip to the Philippines. Then she started explaining..... gosh, I thought I was going to faint when she told me she can no longer process my application because my passport was already expired. I have to renew it, they need my appearance and the process will take 6 weeks. How in the world can I do that in 6 freaking weeks? We will be leaving on the 9th of April. I wanted to cry and scream. I honestly told her how frustrated I am since we already got the tickets. I know it's my fault and not hers. She said she is going to send my papers back. "Okay!" This is what I said. What else can I say? So, we said our goodbyes. I felt like my heart was about to explode. I wanted to cry but tears won't come out of my eyes. I was frustrated, mad and sad not to anyone but to myself. So, I picked up the phone again and called my husband at work. Maybe he can calm me down. I thought. But I did not get hold of him. Oh joy! Whatever. I decided to continue doing my stuff.

Few minutes later.....

The phone rang again. I picked it up this time expecting my husband's voice. No, it wasn't. It was a woman's voice. It was Liezel from the Philippine Consulate. She called again to deliver a good news this time. Oh, thank you God! This time it is a good talk and a good news. She said she will consider processing my application since we already got the tickets with conditions. The conditions are not the hardest thing to do. So I gave her my word. I am so grateful that she considered it. Now, I am relieved. I just have to do those things that I needed to get done and fax them to her to complete my application.

Liezel, may GOD bless you. It is really nice to know and meet people, people like Liezel who is understanding and considerate.

Hello everyone! Happy Valentine's Day. Did you spend this special day with you love ones? If yes, good job. As for me today is just an ordinary day. But I got some gifts from our nice parents at work. Thanks to them by the way. I felt guilty because I did not make gifts for our parents. Our kids at work had a little party. They really enjoyed. They ate so much. It was fun. I had fun.

Working long hours is not fun, especially when it's not counted as overtime. Today I had to work 11 hours straight. I am so tired. I was already falling asleep on the bus on my way home. The energy left in me was only enough to cook for my husband's food for him to take to work. That's all. I had to order food for my dinner and for my stepson's. It does not make me happy everytime they schedule me this way. It's not very often though. It's hard to say "no" because first, I want to have a good review. And second, they asked me nicely. So I said "okay". But with all the cleaning and stuff I am doing in my room alone, working more than 8 hours is way too much. I will be sent home 3 hours early tomorrow for the 3 hours of overtime today. I'm thinking when I get home, I'll go straight to bed and sleep. Yeah right! As if it will happen.

Anyway goodnight everyone.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. My weekend was a little bit busy. I had a really good sleep from Friday afternoon until Saturday afternoon. I mean I did not sleep the entire time but I slept most of it. Friday after work I was so tired. I guess my job is really burning up all my strengths. Sometimes, I really, really wanted to just raise my arms and surrender. But I can't. I need money. So yeah,just keep moving. Then Saturday from 6pm to 12 midnight I was baby-sitting. Extra money for me. Plus I love these twins so much. They are supper cute. And I had fun. Then Sunday I slept almost the whole day. Damn! I was a little bit sad because I did not get to practice my driving. My husband said he was tired. I have nothing to argue about that. I wish I am allowed to practice alone. I probably have my license now. But unfortunately I can't. So I have to depend on my husband. But it's okay. It's better to take it slowly.

I have to stop for now. I have things that I needed to do for work.

Have fun all!

I am hoping that everyone will have a good weekend. I had a long week and I'm glad it's over. I will try to have fun as much as I can this weekend. And be ready for the week ahead. I'm hoping that it's going to be a better one next week. I had so many things going on this week. And most of them were not good. But I did not have time to share it here. Or may be it was a good thing not to share it here. But I made it to the end of this week. It's a good sign. Anyway, if I can't visit here this weekend, which is normal, I hope you guys will have a good weekend. Stay safe.
