My Not So Lonely Christmas

My kids are spending Christmas with my parents this year.  That leaves me and hubby together for the holiday seasons.  But we won't literally be spending time together because since he became Chief resident of their department, he has been so busy at the hospital, he never gets to sleep at home.  But since I came back, I have been seeing more of him lately.  I have been helping him with some of his errands and so we get to spend every afternoon together 3 days in a row.  The day I arrived, we had dinner at Tokyo Joe's.  I have been wanting to eat there for the longest time, but never get to do so since the kids food selection is limited to either Jollibee or McDonalds.  The following day we had lunch at Sbarro since he was craving for a Chicago deep dish pizza.  We went to Starbucks two days in a row.  That's how desperate I am to get the planner, hahaha!!  But I enjoy the time with hubby, we have been laughing more together these past few days.  I guess even when the kids get back, I would always find time for the two of us to go out once in a while.  That way he would get his mind off from work even for a bit.  He tells me what's going on in the hospital and I pity him because I know how stressful it is to manage people, more so if there are people in the team who's always on the naughty list.

This is the first Christmas away from the kids.  I miss them terribly but I know that they are happy to be in Tacloban with mama and papa.  When I left for the airport, I expected Micah to cry and run after me, but surprisingly she just waved me goodbye, planted a kiss on my lips and said, "Ba-bye Mommy!".  It's a day before Christmas, the house is empty, there are no gifts under the Christmas tree, but still I am happy because Christmas is a season of love and joy.  I am happy knowing that my kids are happy and having a blast with all the gifts they would be receiving.  I am looking forward to Christmas dinner with my hubby and after that we would be buying the gifts for the kids, so when they come home their presents would be waiting under the tree.  Since Christmas is a time for giving, we are also planning to give gifts to the kids in our apartment, and randomly I have been giving food to street kids.  I guess in my own little way I am able to share my blessings to others.  Merry Christmas everyone, I hope that you enjoy this holiday season.  Looking forward to a good year ahead!
