Today, I will be sharing some of our adjustments here.
Hello my dear virtual friends, how are you? I hope you are all well today.
New place, new adjustments
We are now in our 3rd day here in our new small house. New place, new adjustments. As the day passed by, I have observed new different things which we need to adjust too.
When darkness covered the earth, a cold weather will visit very soon. It will urge you to wear jacket and pajama. But me personally, I am not really fond of wearing jacket when sleeping, so I am just wearing pajamas. Our blanket will also save me from the colder weather. But you know what, my son is not really into using blanket since he was a baby but here he sometimes allow me to put a blanket on him. He still have sweat at night but not the same in our apartment before that his shirt will be wet because of sweat.
Noise from the vehicles
We are near, very near in the highway. I think the distance of our small house to the road is only 3meters. This is just a Farm to market road but there were also a lot of vehicles passing here. Some were from or going to the nearby purok or Barangay and other were the vehicles from Dole Philippines Inc., the pineapple company. This thing is one that I really need to adjust. I used to live in a quiet place for almost 13 years and here I am living near the highway. Sounds of motorcycles, vehicles and other heavy equipment wont miss to passed by in my hearing. When big vehicles will pass, our small house seems to move too. It seems that there is an after shock of an earthquake lol. I also hate those motorcycle with open pipe, oh why they still exists even the government has campaign to stop it.
Since we are near in the highway, everytime the vehicles will pass, a lot of dust will be carried by the wind and a lot of them are our uninvited guests lol. They will enter in our small house even without permission lol. Oh, when you put something above the table, when you check after a few minutes, you'll find a lot of dust in it. So, it means, I have to wipe dust everyday.
Low water pressure
When you have a low water pressure, it means you have a slow water source. This is already what I expected after applying for water connection because the source of water is just we need to T or series from the previous source. So, in one connection from the main source, we are lot of household who are connecting to it. The more demand of water, the more the pressure will be slow. A neighbor also told me that every Sunday, expect to have a very slow or no water connection. We all know that Sunday is the common laundry day, so a lot will use the water. As a solution, I bought two big pail so I can store water before the water will runs out.
No front yard and back yard
Since we are near the highway, our front yard is already the road lol. Our back yard is the front yard of our neighbor lol. Oh! I can't have a garden anymore. I can't plant malunggay, alugbati, kamote tops, taro and etc. anymore. I don't know how to live without malunggay. Oh, malunggay is life for me. In our previous apartment, I have 11 malunggay tree there if Im not mistaken. My neighbor as well as the neighbor of my neighbors also benefited those malunggay tree. If I could only bring them here, I really will.
