Hi everyone! Sorry for not being able to update my blog for awhile. We got back from our vacation last Saturday evening. Our Florida vacation went so well. We had a great time with the Cottrills, the kids had a blast the most. 

In the middle of our vacation, I received an unexpected call from my family in the Philippines. My grandfather had a stroke, and was rushed immediately to the ICU. I was devastated when I heard the news. My family told me not to worry because the doctor told them that he's fine and they're ready to release him. But on the next day, I got another IM message from my family that my grandfather was in comatose and his chance of surviving was pretty slim. I was speechless! Not my grandpa. Right after our vacation, he took his last breath - Saturday morning. 

It’s really a hard time right now for me and my family.  My grandpa is an irreplaceable, incredible, valuable person – is at the end. I'm going to miss you Lolo. Honestly, I’m not ready and don’t want to write about his death. I still can't believe that he's gone. May he will rest in peace. There’s nothing more painful than losing someone we love.

I really would like to go home and attend my grandfather's funeral, but I CAN'T! Hubby and I can't afford to pay for the plane ticket. Each person costs $3k plus. Our initial plan was to fly by myself, but when we found out the cost of the plane ticket, I don't think if we're able to afford to pay for it. So we thought it would be a good idea to send money instead to help for the funeral expenses. My family in the Philippines understand my situation, and I'm sure my grandpa as well. I'm just glad I was able to see him on skype last month and got to spend time with him last year.

I won't be able to share our vacation photos yet, maybe next week. Right now, I have no desire to update my blogs. Just give me some time. Thanks for dropping! Your visit and comment is highly appreciated.
