My cousins met up yesterday and we had been sharing stories and keeping up with each other over a bottle of brandy. During our hours-long conversation, we had agreed that it would be best if we went to the hospital this Maundy Thursday and Good Friday and be the ones to take care of our grandmother
I really don't think I can do it knowing that my grandmother's strength is slowly seeping away from her because she is the type of person who would wake up early and work around the house. If she was kept lying for a day, she would most likely get sick because she was not used to doing just that. But I will do it because I want to be with her and show her that I care for her.
I know it's been two years since I last attended the family's Christmas party which actually falls two days before Christmas. But this time, I'll really be there. I don't call it really a sacrifice because it is the Holy Week. I call it an act of love. Oh I do hope she would gain back her strength because I really would be there this coming Christmas and I want her to still be there.

It's Summer. Where Do I Go?
Well, if only I had the
enough money to spend on luxury, I would have gone ahead and tried looking for Martha's
Vineyard vacation rentals because that is one place I really would
like to visit. And add to that the videos I watched which make me swoon even
more because of the wonderful views and the even greater accommodations. I feel
like I could really say, "This is the life." when I am there.
Sometimes, I do try to plan
vacations online. I choose a place, then make my itinerary, and then save them
at accounts I have created. I do know that they may seem worlds away right now
but if I set my mind on really going to wherever I would want to go, I can do
So right now, it's
already summer. Although I still can't feel the heat that much, I can smell
summer to be a couple of weeks away. And now I do need to take a break from
what I usually do. Anywhere. It doesn't matter. As long as I take a leave from
work and just plain relax.

People come and go in our lives. Sometimes, we may not want them to leave just yet but they have to go and we are all left with nothing but memories.
It is hard at first but if we are strong enough, we can make it through and we can be stronger even. Sometimes, our minds just get too cloudy that we cannot stop and think and realize why it's happening or what we can do. But it's part of human nature.
All things are hard at first but you slowly move on as each day passes. I don't think it's wise to live in the past when you have the future already looking down on you.

High school. That was when I learned how to play tongits. Some kids have learned playing that game early on but my dad hated any games with cards so there never were any cards at home.
But when I had friends who were older than me, we would hang out anywhere and they would produce a pack of cards. I felt left out because I had no idea how to play games like tongits and pusoy dos. I asked them to teach me. And they did.
It's been years since I've played tongits and I was happy when I asked Rico
, an elementary and high school classmate, to give me a free access code to his PC tongits game
. Now, I'm playing every night each time I go home. And I'm having total fun. Haha. It's quite addicting, that I tell you.
Just so you know, though, this ain't a paid post. Haha.
