Returning back to office work makes me miss one thing: bonding time with DD and DH before bedtime. Basically it’s because I have to stay up late and work on online tasks. I miss chatting with DD and DH on how their day went at school and office. I miss hearing DD’s prayers, who’s on her list of persons who must be renewed by God. LOL! I miss the incessant kulitan of DH and DD minutes before we finally fall asleep. I may be with them but I miss my family.
But DH understands. In fact, he is very encouraging. I am an OFW, a term coined by Chikai. It stands for Online Filipino Worker. LOL! DH is very understanding and supportive. We both know that this is not forever. Strike while the iron is hot, so to speak. I do spend some of my earnings to some shopping but most of it now goes to DD’s college fund. Since two, she wanted to go to one of the best (and most expensive) universities in the country. We are slowly but surely saving up for that. Plus we promised her an overseas trip in a year or two. We are saving up for that also.
So even if it’s tough, we sacrifice. We find time and ways to make up. And this coming weekend is one great opportunity to do so because we are going somewhere nice! Yay! And thanks to our jobs (online and offline), we can afford to do so. Ahh… Bliss.
