My First Week Back in the Philippines

I have already completed my first week back in the Philippines and I would say that I'm pretty much busy during this period.  As usual, I've done my cleaning chores in the house.  We're still in the process of cleaning up as we were affected by the great flood last September 23.  Although the kids and the house helper had already done around 80% of the cleaning and organizing, I still have to do the final touch up. People in the house knew me so well.  I want everything clean and organized and that I wouldn't settle for less.  :)

But apart from from cleaning up, I was able to have a great bonding time with the kids.  We were able to watch two movies, dine out a number of times and had a movie marathon at home.  We also do house chores together like bathing our pet dogs Lucio and Marcus, clearing up the yard and closets.  We're planning to hold a garage sale early next month as we wanted to get rid of the stuff that we don't actually need anymore but may still be useful for other people. So I guess, it will be a win-win situation.  I would be able to declutter and at the same time, earn a little out of the useless stuff in the house.  I would also be able to help others who would be needing those things in their house by allowing them to have those things at a very cheap price.

I still have a number of things to do in my list and that would take place after we are done with the custom made furniture that our wood carpenter is doing for us right now.  I have to replace the bedroom cabinet and the TV racks in the living room and bedroom, as well.  I still have lots of things to do in the next few weeks but I'm enjoying my time at home.  

There's really no place like home! :)
