Today I decided to turn my living room into office scattered with books, papers etc etc.. Feel comfortable letting my hair free without tudung and let it burn like a hot stove. Maybe some hair might fall down like falling leaves in the fall. I can hear the churning voice of bird. Not sure what bird since I could not distinguish many different birds except owl. The aim is to get the writing moving at a more decent rate.
My brain could not work in the office, having two new students around which make the space more congested. I could not focus and concentrate.
I am rewarding myself with Chorale Excelsior and Sinfonia Excelsior, Ralph Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 5.tonite at 7:30 pm. An hour before the concert, I am going to my weekly Pilate session. So my brain needs to be burned to get all this rewards for today.
This Saturday will be another reward. Musical theatre, that is. Playing Footloose in town. I am going with adik-adik bachelor who have similar interest. I told them to study hard for exam and then we reward our self . That is the promise.
Back to work….focus…focus…focus..
Yea...one paper is reviewed. A good restart.
Called the lil one. He sounds so happy today. The reason being he is surrounded by many that loved him and layan him, kakak I and W.
Mama: Anything or interesting story you want to tell me?
Lil one: Yeah, the black out.......(with enthusiasm he discribed what happened..)
After conversation about the black out story...
Mama: emmm...how was your weekend? what do you do?
Lil one: I don't want to talk about it. It hurt. I don't like to be hurt..
Mama: Ok...I will not ask you more..
My heart drop to the ground hearing him said that. I donno what it is all about. But I let him forget about it...until when he is ready to talk about it..
In my mind..is it because he miss me and his dearest friend here? That's possibly could be the reason. It is just my guess..
Beautiful songs from CA dedicated to my lovely friends out there.
THE VOICE WITHIN By: Christina Aguilera
Young girl don't cry I'll be right here when your world starts to fall Young girl it's alright Your tears will dry you'll soon be free to fly
When you're safe inside your room you tend to dream Of a place where nothing's harder than it seems No one ever wants or bothers to explain Of the heartache life can bring and what it means
Chorus: When there's no one else, Look inside yourself Like your oldest friend Just trust the voice within Then you'll find the strength That will guide your way You'll learn to begin To trust the voice within Young girl don't hide You'll never change if you just run away Young girl just hold tight Soon you're gonna see your brighter day Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed It's so hard to stand your ground when you're so afraid No one reaches out a hand for you to hold When you look outside look inside to your soul
Chorus Life is a journey It can take you anywhere you choose to go As long as you're learning You'll find all you'll need to know(Be strong) You'll break it(Hold on) You'll make it Just don't forsake it because No one can tell you what you can't do No one can stop you You know that I'm talking to you
Chorus Young girl don't cryI'll be right here when your world starts to fall
The life that HE gave me, waking up in the morning to find out that HE gives me a chance to live in this world.
A precious gift of a son for me to experience at least a one time mother in life. He shine the strength and happiness in our life.
A loving husband who love me more than I could ever love him and test my strength and patient.
My beloved parents who endlessly always be there and scarify their life for me.
Two siblings and their family who I adore and also always be there for me. As the eldest I wish I spent more time with them in the past. It is never too late to catch up and more exciting with the addition of another generation in the family.
My parents-in-law, relative and friends who complete my life in this world.
Blessing with “rezeki” which I can live comfortably and share with others, opportunity to see and experience life in different parts of the world.
Blessing with “rezeki” to send my parents for Haj, Umrah and to be where I was in different part of the world. This giving me a great satisfaction in my soul.
Most importantly the strength, energy, determination and courage that I am bless with to carry on my life until the day HE call me back home.
My one moment in time..
13:22, March 1, 2006 in the bright sunny day of winter/spring....then came hail a couple hours later
Holiday…emmmm I am really looking forward to it…but I have to put my butt on the chair and read the book which tell the story about XXX and I have to pretend that it was so exciting to read it. Since this morning I had been skipping many many pages and choose only chapters that is easy to understand and at the surface only..sob..sob..Anyway..I will look at holiday inn offer! More reward for me if I finish my writing…2 for 1? Who should be with me then?
I donno if my other half really serious abt it (appying for VSP). I did not get a chance to talk to him in detail. Everytime we had VC, we did not get a privacy to talk abt us. Instead my 1.5 year old niece will conquer the VC with my mom supervision. So my other half had to run away.
I called home this morning while dressing up to school. My mom told me that my other half had not been to work since yesterday. I am not sure if he already started to feel missing the lil one if the lil one comes here for holiday. I think he is losing himself a lot lately. Like he is not looking forward for life anymore. Missing me and lil one from his life is just so empty for him. I also donno what to do with him. He had been so sensitive. Maybe because of his sickness. May be because of serious discussion that we had when he was here recently.
I had been a strong woman all this while but I donno how long I can last like this. Feel like too much that need to hang on to my shoulder. I also need a shoulder to depend on and being protected and being guided in my life. I had been getting a lot of help in the past year directly or indirectly (from some doctors and also blogger’s friends) and I found my true self, I hope. I had stopped feeling pity to myself and I want a life. I hope I can continue to survive and keep my sanity! Yoga and Pilate do help though..
I am slightly better expressing my thought by writing. Cakap tak pandai. I end up freezing my mouth if I talk abt my inner negative feeling/problems.
Sorry lah panjang pulak I membebel…Life goes on..
Take care and bye.

I never reliazed how much I miss you until the "lil one" came back.
For the last 3 years I try to be tough by blocking myself from feeling of being together as a family. It has caused a lot of effect on my health.
