Last weekend was a roller coaster of emotions.
Saturday. We dropped Pa at the airport. He had to leave early because of an urgent matter. I’ve already grown old of the same setup and I’m already used to the emotions. To set the record straight, I’m no longer affected by Dad’s arrival and departure. Don’t get me wrong, I love my dad bigtime! But if you’ve been dealing with the same situation for 20 years, what do you expect?
He usually leave alone. He wouldn’t let anyone of us, including Ma, to accompany him before his flight. I would see Ma crying silently for a couple of days, and then she’d be fine.
But last Saturday was different. Pa allowed us to drop him off at the airport. I looked at Dad before leaving, and I can see right in his eyes the sadness he tries to hide. It felt a bit awkward, but I was the one who cried first. Gah. And then, I saw Mom crying silently. Her shades didn’t help. I burst in tears while driving.
I felt like I miss him..so much! We used to be partners in everything. But after THAT major argument, everything changed. You know, it’s hard when you are with someone with the same ideals, attitude, et al. I sometimes feel there’s a competition between us. And we would never let each other win. Hah. I am my mother’s replica but I got the inner me from Dad.
Thing is, I’m not sure if we’ll be seeing each other this year. And I guess that add up to the weight of the emotions. I just hope we’d get to spend Christmas and New year together.
After driving Ma and sis to Cavite, I went to Megamall to meet up with Tito Father, Father Christian, and Pangs. We had coffee and donuts at Krispy Kreme. Spending time with priests outside Catholic functions is cool. You’ll definitely forget that they’re priests. You get to talk to them anything under the sun, and you’ll laugh your hearts out with their stories and jokes. And just like normal people, they also fool around. Oh, i forgot, they’re also normal. Haha.
Went to Cyberzone to pick up the laptop that Tito bought and then we had dinner at Chef’s Quarter. The food’s superb, would definitely dine there again soon!
We headed to QC to drop them off to the terminal to catch the 12mn ferry going to Marinduque.
And then, there’s heavy rain. Been driving at EDSA for numerous times already, but it was actually my first time at QC and I’m not familiar with the route. Good thing, Pangs helped me brave EDSA that night.
Sunday. Woke up early for our bi-monthly grocery and shopping. Bought some accessories for my Mac. And I felt the need to buy new shirts. You know, I’m a lover of those and I couldn’t resist buying tons of them every month. Just imagine how much is left with my salary on a 16th. Haha.
We were home by 4pm. I spent the remaining rest hours with my babies. I washed and waxed Mikhaile and then played with Moochy all night.
