Moving On

Every year, the wife and I embark on a new project. When we got married, the first project, other than making babies, of course, was to purchase our own house. Well, we're almost there. A few more years and we would have paid off the mortgage of our first project. Then, every year, we built it up slowly, adding and subtracting to our own tastes. A few more years after, the car, etc...

We are embarking on a big one this year. We are getting the house renovated. That means we have to move to another house in the meantime so that neither we nor the workers get in each others way. That also means we have to haul most of our things to the new place we are renting and you can just imagine what twenty years or so of accumulated things, mostly trash, can be. We keep discovering things we've saved meant to be used in the future but forgotten about them. Time grows on us and it does not wait. It just goes on and on like a clock that does not run out of batteries. Hopefully, we will only have to withstand two months of discomfort and we will be moving again to a newer house we've always called home.

I know you'll have fun recycling and rediscovering the possessions you've accumulated through the years.

Very nice project. Congratulations!

Let me know kung kailangan mo ng kargador. :D

rolly said...

cbs Oo nga. Usually, the more you frantically look for something important, hindi lumalabas talaga tas andun lang pala sa sulok.

panaderos Ang kailangan ko, extra workers para mapabilis trabaho.

Hiya Rolly. Wow, home renovation! Medyo madugo but it will be worth it. Refeathering the nest :)

ipanema said...

wow, when can we see the newly renovated house? :)

Gilbert Madugo talaga ang bayaran. hehe

rolly said...

RJ Sana nga pero sa nakikita ko, parang mas malawak ang NLEX kesa sa SLEX eh.

Ate Sienna Oo naman. Kaya lang maliit lang ang bahay ko ha.

Ouch ang hirap nyang move out then move back in. When we were thinking of adding a second floor, the architect said, move out for four months. So, move out na lang kami permanently. We sold the house and bought a new one. Di bale na may mortgage ulit.
