I've been reading some comments from my blogpals on how is my preparations going for my forthcoming vacation next month. Some of them were expressing their excitement that I would finally be home this coming holiday season. Like them, of course I am equally excited too. But thinking about it, it's not really been that long since the last time I visited home. My last vacation was last week of April until 3rd week of May this year, so it's just about 6 months ago. It's actually not too long compared to other OFW's that's why I feel a bit luckier coz there are even times that they get to see me three times a year. Yes, that's how often I go back to visit home. But, I'm just not so sure about the coming year. Sometimes, schedule changes and it's not within my control. Well....I just hope that everything will be fine then.
I've mentioned to a blog pal Algene that so far there's nothing much to prepare for my forthcoming vacation except for some few things that I normally do like buying the "bilins" of my kids, packing my things and fixing all my other stuff that would be left in my room. Normally I secured everything here first prior to taking my vacation. Since I would be away for almost a month, I make sure that I wrap all my clothes in tight plastic bags to protect from dusts and molds. Then I would normally buy some moth balls to place everywhere in the cabinet. Then my dining utensils are also secured the same way. I also use to secure my books, magazines and other documents in a safe container and sealed accordingly. Of course, the more important things, I bring all with me. I normally leave my fridge empty and clean before I go coz I need to unplug it.
For the past few days, I've been trying to figure out what are the things that needed my attention back home and as early as now, I'm starting to list them down one by one including all my other planned activities with the family. Of course, I just jot down things freely...everything that comes to my mind. Later, I would sort out my list and check on my priorities. Them from the list of my priorities, I would number them according to what's the most important down to the least. This way, I make sure that I'm setting my priorities accordingly. Right now, I'm still on the process of doing things and hopefully, I can share some on my future posts.
Well.....I guess, the past few weeks had been a grand vacation time for my blog pals who are all busy catching up with themselves, friends and loved ones. How I wish I could do the same thing too very soon.
For now, I still have to work on some important things that need to be done for the rest of the day. I will blog walk later.
