I half opened my eyes. Alex is standing beside the bed waiting for me to wake up. I gave him the best smile I can give in the morning after bed. I checked the time, it’s only fifteen minutes after seven. I closed my eyes trying to get more sleep.
I opened my eyes again, tried to get up, greeted him “Good morning!” with a very big smile, and lied down again.
“Mommy pu pu!”
This time I knew I had to get up. I quickly checked his diaper, saw traces of pu pu but couldn’t find it.
Alex was staring at something under the bed. After I fasten his diaper back, thinking that he wasn’t finished yet, he suddenly shouted “Ma!” pointing at what he’s looking at. It was the missing pu pu.
So this is our life now. At seven, we wake up, prepare and eat breakfast. At around nine in the morning after our daily bath he starts to watch his movies while I fix the dishes and prepare lunch. At eleven thirty we eat lunch, siesta until three and visit my Tita’s house until five. We go back, prepare for dinner, eat dinner, take a bath again and sleep at eight thirty to nine in the evening. I wash the dishes every after meal, make the bed every morning, wash our clothes every other day, sweep and mop the floor and every other part of our house that needs to be cleaned.
I can truly say that this is the life that I wanted, becoming a plain house wife, except that I don’t have a husband yet and I’m using my own savings to survive. LOL. When classes start I am certain some routines would vary but I would make sure I will do everything I can just so I would not fail to do my responsibilities as a mother.
The other day, we went to the Kodak Center in Chino Roces Avenue (Pasong Tamo Ext) to have my broken camera repaired. I brought mine and my sister’s camera which is also broken. Both of us have the same exact model C743, except that hers was purchased in US. When they checked my sister’s cam, we confirmed that it really doesn’t turn on anymore. When it’s time for mine to be checked and after I described to them the problem, the repairman inserted a pair of their charged batteries but it didn’t even turn on too. He tried using a set of freshly charged batteries, VOILA! It turned on! And then I told him that it was doing that before but the buttons are not working. He pressed on the review button and it worked! I almost shouted. I asked him if I can check if it’s really taking pictures. He said “Sureness!” and it worked again! Maygulay!
I really didn’t know if I would be very very happy that it’s now working and I can save another 1.5K for repair or extremely frustrated that I missed so many important occasions in my life for over two months. It was really surprising that it worked only by replacing the batteries which I have done numerous times two months ago. I just made myself believe that my camera needed a vacation leave too! Hihi..
As usual, he gets the first shot.
