Hubby and I were talking yesterday about us visiting my homeland again real soon. He asked me if I want to do it next year. Of course, I would like to, but the question is, can we afford it? I mean, I am stay at home Mom whose income at home is just enough to add to my husband's pension to pay our bills, car and home loans, plus our children's tuition and other fees in school. I told him that unless it is an emergency, I don't really like to get any of those cash loans because I don't like having so many loans. My husband pointed out that if we want our kids to know and be with my family, there is no other way to go there but to get a loan to fiance our trip. Unless of course we win the lottery lol, which is hardly the case because we seldom play. Oh boy, being far from your family is really tough. My kids and my husband are the only thing that's keeping my sanity. There are days that I really want to be with my family but I can't.
On the other note, it's trash pick up day at our place this Wednesday so we are planning to put out all the things that we don't really need anymore and let other people have some use for it. I was thinking of having a garage sale at first, thinking that I could accumulate enough to buy something for the proceeds but I don't really have the motivation for it so we will just put it out to be picked up this week. Oh well, our trash could be another man's treasure right? I just want to free our home with so much clutter especially with things that don't really matter. I went running last weekend and see different things like Reception Counters and Catering Equipment that was put out by homeowners and business owners on the sidewalk. Most of these stuff are still in good condition, no wonder people go around and pick up stuff.
