…As in departure day.
Today, Ate Meriam will leave for a two-month vacation. She has been with us since April of last year. Actually, that is already her second term. We got her October of 2007, then she left in 2009 then she returned last year.
She is really good in taking care of us, specially my two girls when I am at work. And while it is hard not to have her around, I cannot deprive her of seeing her own children and grandchildren. Anyway, she will back by September, before we hit the white sands of Boracay.
Meanwhile, I have talked to our laundry/iron woman if she could help us as a stay-out helper. She already agreed but now, I am having second thoughts. Tatay is always with us here at home and so is Nanay. I think we can do all the chores ourselves, besides, nobody else can take care of Maxyn except me or Mond.
To our Lola Meriam, have a safe trip and we will miss you!
