My Kids The GOppets

Ang Maglipat Ay ‘Di Biro

Ang maglipat ay ‘di biro. In my lifetime, I’ve moved around 3 times. Yes, just 3 times but with each transfer, it was like a never-ending cycle of packing/unpacking, buying/placing/storing. It took us a month or more to fully adjust & complete our home, laging may nakakalimutan, o laging may kulang.

Now, it’s just a very minor move & yet it’s still taking a lot of effort to furnish a 20-something sq.m. home.

Since the 2 older kids are now going to the same school, it proves more practical to get them a halfway home where they can relax & wait for each other before coming home to mommy.

Pumayag lang ako to a halfway house because they will still come home to me. Pang hang-out lang nila, or for emergency. So at least I have some peace of mind that they have a place to stay during long breaks in between classes para hindi sila pakalat-kalat sa daan. Or a shelter from the storm should they get stranded.

It’s amazing how a teeny tiny space can cost an arm & a leg now. Para akong hihimatayin. At para akong hindi makahinga with the size of the room..

So we took to task buying stuff to make it somewhat home sweet home for the kids. It comes with this super fugly double deck in sky blue. So pagtyagaan nalang & maybe paint it white & put a nice bedspread. Anyway, a dorm is a dorm. Ay, excuse me, ayaw nga pala ni Ate tawaging “dorm”. Condo naman daw! :P

Kapitan Kunat took Demanding Diva mattress shopping. He didn’t allow me to buy a nice spring-coiled bed. Hindi naman daw tutulugan. Hayan, nag-testing sila ng kutson sa Uratex! :P 2 mattresses 5.6k

We went shopping for things. Little things lang for the bedroom/sala/dining/kitchen/bathroom. 5 areas rolled into 1 space. Parang napadami yata ang bili namin! :P Magkasya kaya???

4 carts full! Kulang pa as our list grows of things na nakalimutang ilista! @_@

Then came the grocery. More of junk food & some microwavable items for when their friends visit..

2 carts full! With boxes filled with groceries as well. But knowing my kids & how they are with friends, ubos agad yang supposedly until December supply ko! :P

Grabe, pumutok ang card ko! :| But at least they are 80% complete. I’m sure in the days to come madami pang: “Mommy I need”, kaya naka-valium na ako, lol.

It took us 7 HOURS to complete fixing up such a teeny tiny room, grabe! From installing to maneuvering stuff around, unpacking, washing dishes, cleaning up. What more if it were bigger? @_@ So thankful for all these people (and 1 hidden because we just can’t fit haha) for all the help they have given me!

Enjoy your halfway home kids! <3 It may not be much, but it’s given to you with a whole lotta love!
