Oh my! It's December 28 and I have not even greeted my readers a Merry Christmas or (to be politically correct) Happy Holidays! However I am not really keen on being politically correct for the holidays, after all, is about the birth of Jesus Christ.

As I was listening to the pastor's sermon yesterday, I was struck by thought of the "irritations" that my family is currently experiencing. We are not really that affected but I really feel sad that there are people in the world capable of doing abominable things because of greed and envy. A sadder note is that fact that the persons directly involved are relatives in the first degree.

After church my kids and I decided to visit the minute post post Christmas bazaar by the parking area. The dust on the unpaved walk bothered me a lot. Who the heck would want to shop in this sorry state of a bazaar? I was also quite taken aback by the senseless and dusty items being sold. Was I really bothered by the dust or was I just sad? I guess I felt pity on the sellers as no one was buying anything. I looked and looked for something to buy but even Ethan had no interest on the things that were being sold. D1 was perusing on some second hand books for sale. She gave a squeal of delight as she found a slightly used book the title of which she has been looking for quite a while. She paid for the book and asked the owner of the booth where they sell textbooks on regular days. The lady answered and even got D1's number in case new titles arrive.

We all felt a little better after the buy. At least there were two persons happy with the purchase - D1 and the bookstore owner.

  1. Nothing beats family dramas noh? We've had a bunch of those that I know of....12 ba naman magkakapatid ang mga nanay ko eh. Solusyon ng nanay ko....she stayed away from them....hehe....parang ako ata...hahaha....

    Seriously, let's hope that in 2010, there will be less drama...nakakapagod noh? Why can't we all just get along in peace and harmony? O di ba dramatic? Hahaha

    Kawawa naman yung mga nasa tiannge. When I was still living in BF, may tiangge dun na nilalangaw din....eh di lalo na siguro ngayon.

    O siya.....enjoy the last days of 2009.
