I'm Still Here :)

I got a lot of explaining to do >.<" *yikes*

Please Accept My Peace Offering >.<"
I have gone M.I.A. on you guys for days, and I didn't even left you any notice whatsoever. Things just went crazy hectic over at my end since Thursday. I had to help out and prepare, not for Thanksgiving (we don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here), but for my brother's birthday last Friday. My sis, my mom, our house help and I had to clean up the house (it's a mess because there's a construction going on at our house at the moment), do grocery shopping and cook for the party. Friday, well, I couldn't get anywhere near my computer at all since we had to entertain guests, and of course, indulge in the meal we've prepared and clean up after the party. 

I thought I'd be able to get back to blogging by Saturday but lol... that's a big no. My supplier sent me a text message early Saturday morning telling me to head to her shop because she has a new bundle of thifted clothes waiting for me to break in. My sis and I wigged out, because this was very unexpected and we're still a bit tired from the past 2 days' activities but of course, we couldn't pass that out. I was so beat that I literally shut down after dinner. Sunday... I spent it sorting out and pricing my newly acquired stocks. 

So there ya go... that was my Thanksgiving weekend. Pretty crazy, but it was great :) Oh, by the way, thank you so much for the lovely comments on my Thanksgiving post. They were so touching. I hope you guys had a fantastic celebration with the special people in your lives.

I've noticed you guys were all baffled about that disaster I faced this year. I made a post about it, but you guys probably weren't following me at that time. So if you are up for a good read, do skim over my post, A Night I Will Never Forget...

So yes, I'm still alive, and no, I haven't quit blogging. Once again, I apologize for my unexplained absence. I will update my blog soon. After all, I do owe you guys  especially my dear friend, Bessie, a K-pop Idol Feature. I'll do that... tomorrow. Right now, I need to catch up on some Zzzz's.

I think a lot of bloggers (at least the US ones) took a loooooong weekend off, so there seems to be no rush to catch up on blogging. No wait. I'm horribly behind. hahaha.

Sometimes with so much going on and without the internet access, it can be quite difficult. But you sure had a good time and catch up you once everything gets back to track.

just tututiny said...

Missed you Wi - I took a couple days off from blogging too to study so no harm done. Happy belated to your brother. Parties are always a hassle for my family too because my mom always invite SO many people so the cleaning part gets out of hand. I hope you were able to get a few hours of relaxing time at least =)

songbird said...

i had no clue that you had such a frightening experience..i am so glad you all are safe..
belated birthday wishes to your brother..and glad to have you back :)

We should all go M.I.A around the holidays. Some ppl like to think Birthdays are holidays so it's all good.

I did the same thing. It can get really crazy sometimes. Anyways keep up the great work.


Always, T
