We are back in Las Pinas. I think we’re going to stay there for two weeks. It has been a while you know. The last time I saw my family was in June 23 when Ayex had her usual check up and vaccination.
The agreement was, we will stay in each place for a month. We went back to QC last June 4 in time for the opening of classes. That means we should have been back to Las Pinas since July 4. I told my husband that it is fine with me if we stay a bit longer in QC since my sister-in-law is leaving for US in August. I want her to enjoy Ayex as much as she can because they will not be seeing each other for a long time.
Las Pinas is very far from where we both work. I understand that and I am prepared to commute despite the fact that rainy season had started. However, he decided to bring the car this morning. And all these started when we got stuck in the long traffic in Coastal Road.
We took Coastal Road because we thought the traffic is not heavy according to my brother. When hubby saw a queue of cars piling near the toll gate, he frowned. We did not like it at all. Much more when we saw lots of red lights after we paid the toll. Then, he said something like “Mommy, malayo talaga tayo pag dito eh. Di rin maganda kung laging late, lalo na ngayon magiging project manager ka na.” I just said “Ano gusto mo balik na tayo ng QC?” I did not say anything after that. I kept quiet with different things running in my mind.
- If we are to stay in QC (no more going home to LP every other month), then it would not be fair to my family. They would have to travel from LP to QC if they would want to see Ayex. My mom did that before and I did not liked it.
- If we really want to stop staying from one place to another, why not just have a place of our own? If we want to visit our families, we can do that on weekends.
- It is not a question of “Can they take care of Ayex?”. It is more of to give both families a chance to spend ample time with Ayex. It hurt me when Ayex cried yesterday upon arriving in LP for no reason at all. Maybe because she cannot recognize her Tita Gabby and Tita Tonette.
**There is really so much more. I just do not want to think about them anymore. But you know, this is becoming a problem. Why not share with me your thoughts so we can finally resolve this. Come to think of it, don’t you see that I am trying to be a good wife and in-law here. 🙁
