That Drained Feeling

After last night’s round of two nearly-consecutive 100-item exams, suffice to say that, once I got home, hitting the sack was one of the first things that came to mind.  And indeed, when I finally did lie down on my bed, I went to sleep right away (straight to six in the evening in fact).

One of the worst things to wake up to is my father casually mentioning, in the middle of talking about something else, how Lola Popeng had died during the day. As if it was the most normal thing in the world, having a beloved relative die.  He was thinking of visiting, but because there was no one else in the house but the baby and his minder, well…  

Then there’s how it wasn’t possible to have lola’s remains taken to Leyte, to be buried beside her husband, because we didn’t have the money to help send her home.


Dunno if we’d be able to go visit the wake this weekend, as my sister and I’ll be too tired due to our night shifts, so I don’t know.  I’m not sure how to feel right now, to be honest — the last time I had visited her home (at Las Pinas) was when she had a stroke a few years back — but unlike my father, “it was only a matter of time” never became a serious consideration for me, as far as lola’s condition went.


Still have another evening of 100-item exams waiting for me, seriously didn’t need that news.
