Time passes us by without any notice and by the time we pause to think, it’s another year.
The last year or so have been tremendously challenging for me to say the least.
I don’t want another year to go by just like that, so I have decided to start writing again.
So that when I look back on the year(s), I could smile in remembrance
of the time Sienna said she’ll take care of mama forever
or when Christopher ate his first lollipop.
It’s never easy to keep track of everything that’s happening in your life,
especially if you have 2 kids and a full time job.
Admist the summer school activities planning, sibling rivalry management,
washing machine breakdown, air-con leak,
kids falling sick, husband and I falling sick
and endless little drama’s at home and at work,
a week past and I have yet to celebrate my birthday
and we realized that it’s our wedding anniversary!
With what little energy we have left, we snuck out for a couple’s night
and ate at a place we found in a magazine recommendation,
went to $10 dollar store to pass the time
and watched the Vampire Chronicles at a cinema a stone’s throw from our home.
This is when you appreciate the very most basic things we take for granted.
I had planned to perm my hair, paint my nails red, buy a new dress, go for a holiday etc…
none materialized except for the red nails.
But we had each other.
And I feel so very blessed because of that.
