Getting ready for the weekend

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Most families are getting ready for the long weekend. Thursday is a regular holiday while Friday is a special non-working holiday for most offices. We’re taking advantage of the long break by spending the night in our house. Years ago, even if I was still young, my family would be busy preparing to visit my Lola’s grave, and that includes making sure the tomb is painted white (Did they ever use spray painting compressor with a pneumatic sensor? I cannot say.), candles are available and flowers are purchased. These days however, I am more concerned about the stuff we need to bring. Now with two little girls, imagine how much stuff needs packing. And I can’t afford to forget anything. I’ll probably be up early tomorrow morning so we can make it to lunch at my parents.
