With the fast changing and ever revolving world like ours, it may seem hard to cope up with how demanding our everyday lives can be. Just like me, I work part-time as a Marketing Associate for an up-coming events company and I also blog on the side. Aside from being a worker , I am also a full-time wife and mom to two adorable kids.
I am so blessed right now that everything is falling into place. I blog and I have job that keeps me sane from the same and usual routine of being a house-keeper. I'm not saying i'm bored with being a wife and a mom, but let me just say that when I finally had to work after being eight years of being a full-time mom-It made me work and aspire more. It made me strive more and after all these years that I'm craving for success, I finally say that I was in the "game".
Being in the "game" made me want to go to work everyday and prove to everybody that I'm worth every penny my boss pays me. It gives me natural high that I can also do two things that I both love, "being in an events company and still manage my own blog". My peg is like "work, blog and pray".
With all the challenges, failures and triumphs that I actually face every day, it's just an added spice. But do you agree that work can get in the way sometimes? Hey, I can relate with it so much. Having to work part-time 3x a week and blog in between day, that has left me an ample time with my family. It should be a win-win situation but that is where I fail this time.
Let me share a personal experience where I actually missed a very, very important celebration in our family. I know, till now I still feel guilty why I actually missed that very momentous celebration of our lives.
Just to give you an idea about it, let me start by sharing that I'm actually married to my husband for almost 4 years, but if I will include the years since we got together and gave birth to our first-born- we're almost together for 8 years and ...counting!
Maybe by now you have an idea what is that very special occasion that I missed- Yeah I missed our WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. Yeah I know it is very unlikely or normal for a wife to forget or skip it but hey I'm not perfect.
On that particular day, I had a coverage and thought it would start on time. But just like most events, unavoidable circumstances are likely to happen. It started a bit late. If it would have started on time I might have surprised my husband with a surprise dinner. I still feel awful not having been carried my plan out for our anniversary. While I was on coverage, he texted and his message felt so disappointed with my missing our own anniversary. How could he not? It’s not normal for wives to forget or missed on it. He’s also busy but he actually found the time to go home early that night just so the whole family could celebrate. As you see, if you would be reading my previous posts, it’s a normal thing that I usually go out with my two boys but we’re pretty strict with family occasions. We see to it that we strictly go out and celebrate family occasions.
To continue the story, I arrived home late found no one at home. My husband still disappointed just went out for dinner with the kids-without me L.
I told him I was so sorry but I guess it wasn’t enough. He gave me the cold shoulder for months. He didn’t want to go out with us on weekends. It had me thinking what to do to make up for the “fail” wedding anniversary date.
After a few months, I said this can’t go on forever. I have to think of something to make him feel I am truly sorry about what happened. So I thought of taking them out on my birthday. I’m crossing my fingers that of course he won’t miss it.
So on my birthday, I skipped work and texted him that after his work he should meet us somewhere. Just an hour before dinner, I texted him to meet us at Max’s Restaurant in Scout Tuason. Max’s Restaurant is my family’s favourite. Even when I was a kid when my Mom and Dad would fight, my Dad would take us out to lunch and eat at Max’s Restaurant. My dad would order their Kare-Kare and house specialty which is the Max’s Fried Chicken and everything would be back to normal. It’s my dad’s way of making it up with my mom. And I did that also with my husband. I wanted him to feel that I appreciate all his efforts and hard work just to support our family most especially for really taking the time out just to go home early for our anniversary and celebrate.
Hoping against hope that it will work.
At Max’s we celebrated it with a birthday dinner. After eating a sumptuous dinner, little did he know that I when the cake was served, it was for him. Instead of me blowing it, I had served unto him, with matching dialogues, “I’m sorry I had to miss our anniversary”? And there I saw him smile shyly because the dining attendants were also surprised with what I did. His smile made me think that now everything’s settled. I realized it was never really too late to make up for what I did. Max’s Restaurant is “sureball” answer to my problem. I realized I was so right by following my instincts. I was thankful that those fond my memories that I had when I was a kid really paid off.
Looking back, maybe I should have something delivered at our house during anniversary, right?
