goodbye, friend...

Maroi, a lady with a heavy Batangas accent... You fought a good fight. Now it is time for you to rest.

new toy

New toy for my kids, a laptop from Tito Robert. Thank you from all of us.


Last year, I received word that one of my former classmate and friend was involved in an accident. A jeepney rammed the back of a Toyota FX and my friend was pinned in between. Both her legs was amputated because of this. After that, problems kept popping up one right after the other. I guess the trauma was too much for her body to handle. She's got four kids and I know that they are the reason why she's still fighting till now.

Sometimes life is so unfair. A few days ago, I got word that she was admitted to the hospital again. This time it's because she suffered a stroke. From what my other friend told me, I thought that there might still be a chance that she can recover from this recent drawback. I called my friend today to get an update, she said that since Thursday, our friend at the hospital has gotten worse. They were saying that the damage done to her body is now irreversible.

Miracles can still happen. She can still recover. But failing short of a miracle, it is possible that this might be the end of the road for her. She is still young, still a whole lifetime taken away from her because of a reckless driver. It pains me to think that her children might face a future without the guidance of a mother. I know that she is a fighter, she doesn't give up easily. But what can one do if the body refuses to heed what the mind tells it to do? Only time can tell. Either way, I hope she does not suffer too much.

bits n pieces

Have been lazy posting lately... guess I should update.

Kyla got an "A" on her Accounting 1 class. As you can imagine she's very happy about it, but still bugging her instructor to give her her score for the final exam. Ah, such perfectionist attitude. She also started on the spring semester classes. From what she told me, the instructor's a little strict... sorry Kyla, so much for your wandering mind when in class, he he he. She was also supposed to join this Ms. Valentine thingy, but decided not to because she doesn't want to miss any of her classes. Good. I don't have to worry about expenses :p

Axel is also doing very good in his studies. He got a perfect score on their spelling test (again). He's been wondering why some of his classmates don't know how to spell when they were born here and have been speaking English since birth. I won't comment here... could be controversial :) He's a little worried about his history class, which obviously he doesn't know anything about (it being American history). Just told him to concentrate on that subject more since that's the only one he seems to be struggling with. I don't blame him, though, even I am not very good at history, Philippine history or American. It's a wonder I ever passed those when I was in school. He's also busy with his science project. I'll be jumping in pretty soon for the "construction" part. Hope it works the first time.

As for me, I will finally get a day off!!!! This time it's for real. It's official, it's the schedule... Yey! I still have two jobs, but I will work less hours at the other library. It does get old after working seven days a week for more than two years. Aside from that, nothing much happened. Been trying to keep up with both the kids schedule and mine. Hopefully, everything will settle down once the new schedule is in place.
