fam priorities

Posted by Kero at Sunday, January 18, 2009
Hubby and i have been talking about buying a property in Manila, Antipolo, or Laguna. Yes, it is recession time and no banks are accepting loans but still it feels good to know that we got our priorities right. On our honeymoon, we talked about house and lot as top priority but two years and eight months of marriage, we still have to buy one hihi.

Last night, we talked to some friends and they revealed some are selling their property and some are acquiring more and more property in Metro Manila. This prompted us to ask ourselves silently if we had it all wrong. We actually never set a goal on what we wanted to happen. But looking back..

2006 - we exchange vows in Baguio City and headed to Dubai
2007 - our first wedding anniversary was a celebration also of my pregnancy
- we were able to acquire our 2008 Toyota Fortuner
- after Christmas Day, i gave birth to our son, Andreas
2008 - hubby received his promotion as Design Manager...

Every year, something life-changing event occurs in our marriage. And it is always for the better. We thank the Lord for all of these because he always gives us enough that we are capable of helping others.

So this 2009, now that there are three of us, it is time we set our priorities right. I pray and hope for these:

1. start paying for a house & lot
2. buy that machine for metal works from Eisenkraft
3. a reputable nursery for Andreas
4. look for a nanny...
5. continue my HR career.

Yes, there are no vacations on deck - especially to the Philippines. We figured we have to buy that property first before anything else. May God continue to help our..

may your goals & priorities be met, sis. I also miss the HR world but I would rather stay home than exposing myself to all the stresses in the workplace. :-)

Been lurking for awhile now. Just wanted to say your blog makes me smile. Your positive nature is clearly shown in your writing.

We share the same sentiment re the current financial situation and the dream of wanting our own place. I don't think it's impossible. It might take time but I do believe dreams do come true.
