MAINITNON SA AMERICA REUNION


20 September 2008, I was First Runner Up to Ms. Mainit at the annual reunion held in San Diego, CA. The reunion lasted 3 days and Mainitnons from all over the U.S. and Canada were here. Friday was a big dinner and meeting in Mira Mesa. On Saturday there was a dinner and dance in Mira Mesa and Ms. Mainit was selected. On Sunday we held a picnic at Mission Bay. We had a really nice time. It was good to see family and friends.

CHRIS IS FINALLY COMING HOME FROM IRAQ

Yeah!!!! My baby is coming home. God answered my prayer. He's finally going to be home, safe and sound. I wish I could be there to watch you coming down the steps from the plane.

Lots of hugs, Momma

Wednesday, July 9, at 10:15 PM!


A representative from the Army called Dad to let him know that Chris will be arriving at Fort Stewart at 10:15 PM on Wednesday, July 9. Announcements about the welcome home ceremony are posted at the Ft. Stewart website. Chris' flight is presumably Flight 11.

Can't wait! Wish we could all be there when he arrives!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

Chris called at 3 pm to wish me a Happy Birthday. It was 1 am over there. He said his Dad had dinner in Kansas City with Jackie on Father's Day. He's leaving Iraq on 6 July and will get into the U.S. on 11 July. I'm counting the days. He'll be visiting us in San Diego the week in August. I can't wait. We'll try and have a party for him. He said all he wants to do is go to the beach with his boogie board. I was so excited I forgot most of the conversation. It's just good to hear his voice and know he is all right.

Love my baby boy.

Missing you Chris, Mom and Craig

Pidjanga Song for Mainit

My mom asked me to post these three videos that she says remind her of her home in Mainit, Surigao del Norte. She found them on "The Pidjanga of Mainit, Surigao del Norte Blog". There are some really beautiful photographs on the blog as well.

Here are the videos. Enjoy!

OUR HOME TOWN II

Here I am enjoying our nice weather with the same view as below. Unfortunately it isn't like this today. We're having one of our Spring storms, rain and wind, but it will be nice like this by Monday. Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

OUR HOME TOWN

A view of San Diego from Coronado Island. The nicest weather in the USA. The first time I came here was 1981. I came back here in 1984 and have lived here ever since.
