my 2 nieces
I had my last final yesterday morning at the dark hour of 7.30am. Dead tired as I was, I couldnt fall asleep until 2AM.
SO i went 21 hours with only 3 hrs to sleep the day before and about 4hrs the day before that. I probably slept 10 hours top the whole week.
This remind me of Kame and the comment the host of that Osharism show made about him. - Only us and Giraffe sleep like that ..
Daddy called at 8 this morning. I was still catching up with my beauty sleep. I was surprised I heard the phone rang in the first place.
So yeah, talked to dad, mom, my sister and her daughter. It's been awhile.
Dad's health isnt as good. He's been sick lately, hurts in random places, headache, then a cold, then toothache. I suddenly realize that he is really 65 and not 55 like I always thought. I kept asking him if he's feeling better, he kept avoiding the subject. I think either he wanted to keep his Iron Man Image, or he didnt want me to worry.
Mom is still as usual, asking if I eat decently, if I have enough money. She's always at the back nagging me about my money-spending habit, but really, it's her fault I'm such a spoil brat.
as usual, she told me not to worry about money and just concentrate on school. I felt bad for all the time I was slacking. My mother is 63 and still working every day from 9 to 7. I wish I was smarter, to get all that crazy full scholarship for international student.
Dispite my mom was just telling me not to waste anymore money trying to fill up my already overflow closet, my sister sat there asking if I got any new stuffs. Being a married woman and mother of a 2 years old child, she's an awfully youngster sometime. She still thinks she in her early twenties. I am sometime glad that my feet are 2 sizes bigger than hers. I probably cry if I have to give my babies to her too. What a selfish spoil brat I am!! but then again, I already share half the stuff in my closet with her.
My niece .. what a cutie, last time a saw her, she was only able of incoherent word. And now, almost a year later, she's talking. Though most of the time, she was like a parrot, babbling what her grandma and mom told her to say. She did answer my question thou. This was how it went:
Me: are you going to school?
Niece: NO!! - answer in a very excitedly proud way.
Niece: I'm stayin' with daddy's daddy.
My sister: Don't lie to your aunt, you're going to bible pre-school.
Niece: wheere auntie?
My sister: There!
Niece: dat's de phone. Auntie inside the phone!!!
What I got for being an adult. I learned to treasure the right things. I'm catching up with my best friends, trying to fill the gap I created slacking/ignoring them all this time. I'm glad my friends still love me.
I'm becoming closer to my family. I learn to talk to them. I used to act like a lonely introverted only child. Now I talk to dad about car, discussing fashion and boys with sisters, and everything in between with mom. I'm glad I grow up.
When I was younger, I used to think that I'm not a family person. I still remember all the meme I wrote for my friend, the answer to "rate your relationship to money" would always be
"Friends > Family > Money > Love"
If I were to answer this question again now, the answer would be this:
"Family > Friends > Money > Love"
My boyfriend said, my husband would probably be the most unfortunate man in the world. I should have felt offended but I didnt. What he said wasnt wrong. What with me being fussy about every little thing and all things come before love. But I still want to get married and have kids, lots of them. I guess I just have to find a really generous and enduring man.
