homefront

still here! nope, i haven't abandoned my blog, how could I? it's just that unfortunate string of events had happened in the homefront the last two weeks... the reason i was experiencing recurring headaches {or maybe it was the crazy weather we're having? yeah, maybe...}

just a recap of the last two weeks:

washing machine breaking down.
no, the washer is working all right, but the dryer isn't.
not good, sun is currently AWOL in this part of the world.
calling friends for help.
friends contacting repairman.

aaargghh!
i'm left with the mess.
dryer still not working.
