Wow, busiest month so far. I've been slowly moving house the past couple of weeks. I'm moving to my own apartment and I'm having the place fixed. I bought furniture and had it delivered. Believe it or not, my sala set and bed cost me 2,800 pesos delivery included! And that's all brand new. Amazing huh? Now I'm having the place painted. Every wall, every ceiling, every cabinet, the gate, everything. I'm also having the floor vinyl tiles replaced, have the garden done and have a canal dug to prevent possible flooding. I gotta admit the place needs a lot of work but I can see the potential and I think I'm going to really like living there, and for several years, I'd gladly call it home.
If I haven't mentioned it yet, I'm getting married at the end of this month. I've been busy with the preparations, taking care of the reception place, flowers, the church, the cake, wedding car, the photographers (no video coverage for me because those people tend to intrude on the proceedings rather than staying inconspicuously in the background as they should). No stupid cables everywhere and bright hot lights shining on people's eyes, carried by horrendously dressed people in what is supposedly a formal occasion.
My fiancee Ilyn is handmaking each and every invitation. Which is really amazing. She's quite an artist. We've been busy distributing them. Some of them I'm handing directly, some I have to courier. I still have half of them with me so I really have to get them out there. The invitation thing has been a big pain to be honest. I'd love to invite everyone, but Ilyn and I can invite only 100 people between the two of us (and that already includes ourselves and our immediate family). So deciding who to invite is really tough. You're bound not to invite people who would really feel bad at being left out. If you're reading this and you didn't get an invitation, then you gotta know that I would have loved to have you there if not for my own limited resources. Hope you guys (and gals) understand.
In the middle of all this, I'm inking Superman: Birthright. I'm trying really hard to work on the pages every day but I'm moving not as fast I normally would, which is understandable I guess, under the circumstances.
