Christmas was a bit of a downer this year though I was happy to be home and see my family.
24th - Got home around 5pm. Rested some. Mom and Dad opened the gift we got them. It was pretty nice. Ate cooked some pasta. Didn't taste as good as she would've liked it to be but it was still good. Went to my Tita Mel's for noche buena. It was ok. The Clan was not complete though. Mark called me past 12. Felt good to hear his voice.
25th - My Uncle Noel died on Christmas Day... He's my dad's youngest brother. So Dad had to leave with Uncle Tony for Bicol. Bummer does not even come close... Oh God...
My sister and I spent most of Christmas day sleeping hoping that Silas could come open his gifts. Silas, of course, had to stay with his family.
26th - Didn't wake up in time for church. Mom came back at noon. Had lunch and lounged around. Ma and I went out to get book and test from Nikki. Twas nice to see a smile. Tried to find a gift for Ate but we weren't able to find one. Had a long chat with Criselle when I got home. Couldn't sleep. Went to Mommy's bed and slept beside her. Felt right. Three generations in one bed. Slept soundly...
27th - Was supposed to leave at 3am for Ate to get to work on time. Left at 11am instead... ;-) Hated to leave mom alone. Still got to office 15mins early.
I guess we won't go home for New Year. Ma will just go to QC to spend it with us.
