Home for a While




I went home for a couple of days to visit my mom and my brother who will be leaving early next year for Chicago. He will be assigned there for one straight year and since not one of us is sure if we'd still be able to catch up on January (I will be going back on Jan 14) I decided to just make a quick trip. It was a surprise trip. Only mom and dad knew about it. My brother and friends didn't have the slightest idea. Papa was supposed to come over but he changed his mind. I will try to compensate for it next month, I'd stay in Cagayan longer.

It was fun surprising everyone. And it was so nice to be welcomed back with smooches and hugs from my mom. Even if she has to wake up at dawn to go pick me up at the airport, she still cooked adobo and sinigang for me. After lunch I headed to the salon for some pampering. Gah. No pedicure for 3 months. My toes looked pretty with the delicate pastel pink polish painted on em. My closest friends had the shock of their lives when I went out of the room when mom told them to Skype with me Live. I couldn't even stop laughing when I saw my best friend, Monica's reaction when she saw me. I realized that I really am unstoppable. When I think of something, I should really do it. I had the time of my life surprising everyone back home.

Now that I'm here again, I'll push myself to eat all bland foods for five more weeks until I go back to the warmth and coziness of our home. Final papers are due before I leave so it's just a matter of writing and writing till kingdom come for the coming weeks. I actually have started scribbling on my new Starbucks planner courtesy of Ahia. There's no lines on the pages, I'm OC like that. I want my handwriting neat on my planner so I don't know how I'd manage to write without lines.

Moving on, for Christmas and New Year, I don't know what the plans are. Hotels are fully booked on the 31st so I don't know where to stay after watching the fireworks in 101. So help me God.
