tackling a new role

a tapping on the shoulder and profuse thanking   –   these were what i received from my three sons after successfully and safely driving  for the very first time to san isidro labrador parish, near southmall and back to our house.

yes, it was an achievement on my part which deserved these “rewards” from my passengers. i was really very happy.
from the time i gained some confidence to drive on the main highway two weeks ago, i knew this day would come when i would be their chauffeur.  😉
this was a good timing since the summer season seemed to have already started early. we were all comfortable on our trip and it only took us a few minutes to reach our place after spending an hour inside the mall.

i released a sigh of relief once we’re home and never forgot to silently offer a thank-you prayer to the Lord for protecting us all.

once inside our abode, i texted my husband informing him about it. now, i am curious what his reaction would be since he had reminded me not to allow our children to ride with me yet since i am just a greenhorn driver. 😦

  1. You mean you are driving now? Whoa!!! 🙂 from running to driving—what else do you aspire to do Mrs. Gines?

    P.S. care to drive me in the vicinity of LP when I drop by.

    1. it’s a necessity to learn, friend. 🙂 still not that confident to do long distance driving though.

      hopefully, my driving skills will meet your standards when i get to drive you around las pinas city. hehehehe…

      glad to see the emoticon in your post now. 🙂

      excess:
      bungee jumping perhaps…hahahahahaha. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. just tried what you told me in putting that emoticon. Isn’t it possible to simply click on the button for emoticons, plus the editing, the font to be used and the color to be available for posters? is it only for the blogger? and dami ko hinihingi noh! it can help kasi for emphasis lalo na kung type kita asarin hahaha. wala ba yung nakataas ang kilay or yung nagtathumbs up 🙂 o yung nagtutumbling for overexcitement, haha

    Going back to your driving, how many bins have you destroyed around LP ? just joking———– I was just too surprised that you’ll venture into driving ( or did I advise my nanny to do that?) though I know your temerity will never leave you simply sitting in one corner waiting for any adventure to pass. I still remember those cave visits in Zambales, the ” hiking” in Bicol and “your own adventure” in Palawan ( that you told me)

    and yeah, why not try that bungee jumping, but once you plan on doing that better inform me because I need to check on the location and the risks involve, haha

    1. ang dami mo ngang hinihingi, friend! hahahahaha…joke. seriously, no choices for smileys and the other features which you mentioned. i am not sure though if they will be available once i customized that part in my blog. but i have to buy it. as in! afford ko lang ang yearly registration fee ng domain ko. hihi. hmmm…pwede magpa-sponsor? hahahahaha!!!

      bins? none. yahooo! pero twice na napangasan yung sasakyan. huhuhuhu.

      got no choice but to learn for our own advantage. remember, i am performing a dual role every time larry is not around. dapat nga mas dominant yung pagiging lalaki ko. harharharhar.

      inunahan na po kita, madam, sa utos nyo na mag-aral akong magdrive. 🙂 🙂

      that’s another. my adventurous persona will always make me try new stuff despite the risks. as long as they give me a feeling of self-fulfillment, i will do it. 😉

      bungee jumping ala-james bond. yup! i will keep you posted. 😉

  3. Backtracking the years when we used to have tete a tete most of the time because we belong to the same academe, I feel truly astounded at how our lives now have been at extremes when it comes to what we presently do. When I think of it the only

    thing common between us is the passion for writing and our love for words ( though I don’t maintain the same blog as you do, simply blogging here and there and that’s it 🙂 haha. You have found your ” dominion” just as I have found mine.

    It is a cliche, but just the same I wish you fulfillment to all your endeavors. I am still in the navigating mode and luckily I was able to read at least three entries in different months while typing something in between my reading.

    IF ONLY THE BLOGGER HAS BEEN THOUGHTFUL ENOUGH ( OR PERHAPS CARED TO REMEMBER A ” FRIEND”) TO SEND ME THE LINK I COULD HAVE STARTED MY VIEWS SINCE AUGUST OF 2011…psst… is it because i didn’t belong to her new circle of friends when she started this?) NOW I AM FORCED TO CLICK SOME MONTHS TO BROWSE SOME INTERESTING TOPICS LEAVING AWAY THE EARLIER ONES BECAUSE THEY WERE POSTED FOR AGES…gosh is all i can say.:)

    1. i love the word “dominion”, friend. feeling ko talagang warrior ako. 😉 maraming maraming salamat.

      you have the same sentiments as my other friends. late notice and publication. for the nth time, my apologies.

      please do not force yourself to click some months. hehehehe…i would rather read that you are excited to click on them. hahahahahaha…

      i am grateful for the regular visit. 😉 😉

  4. hey dear kindly delete the 11:34 post. I was in the process of trying to edit my reply when I accidentally hit on the post comment. i think you know the reason why the first post sucks, haha.

  5. at this point I don’t think I can accept your apology———because you don’t text me often nor give me a ring once in while and then suddenly an invite for this blog came. TAMA ba yon? I don’t like to use the word excited ‘coz I am not ( well, after more than a year and around 180 entries to read you expect me to be excited?), the right word for me is interested.

    Did I annoy you ? 🙂 hahahahhahha
