It’s been a little over a week since we arrived but every morning when I wake up, I still wonder for a few seconds where I am.
Oyen reported to me that while she and the other household staff were distributing candies on Halloween Day, Antonia was not helping, instead, she was in her own world, dancing in the garage while kids were nagkakagulo asking for candies.
I truly enjoyed the wide open spaces and roads in California. We were more in control of our time. We could reach more places and could efficiently budget our time. With one hour, I could drive 10 miles in 10 minutes, shop a little and be home in another 10 minutes. I miss those little things.
Here, I have lost control of my time. My whole day is diminished.
Last night, I screamed when I entered my bathroom. A big ipis was on my tub. I panicked and didn’t know what to get to pukpok it. Then I remembered the advise of one of Oh My Buhay readers, to use alcohol. Hayun, ang bilis nyang namatay. No more chasing around and screaming. A few spritz and the ipis is super dead.
