Quality time birthday


Slept for only about 4 hours today. Woke up, not at all feeling tired or wasted (been out since last night and got home before 3am today), and this beautiful drawing was being waved at my face. It said:

"Happy B-day Mama Fr. Andee & Diego"

It was a drawing (and watercolor) of a cat, amply named 'Graffar" (don't know where they got the name) and according to Andee it was based on Mr. Bean's landlady's cat. Sweet! :-)

I would like to blog about how I spent my birthday today.. aside from answering birthday text messages and emails. I'd say it was different from all other birthdays I've spent. No frills. I was supposed to take the kids out for a swim.. but Andee was down with the colds, and had her friend Rafael over(remember the handsome little boy she introduced to me before?) Did a few errands in the morning (my mom hasn't arrived yet from Palawan..so errands I did).
I'd also say that this was a day when I realized how I would live my life now that my situation is somewhat.. not that 'confusing' anymore. Perhaps after all times spent with a few chosen people made me stronger, or more confident. I'd say that it only took an assurance from a person that took out the 'me' I missed for all those 8 years--- able to stand, at last, back on my own two feet.
