last night, it was announced that there won't be classes today because of the coming typhoon pedring (international name nesat). i knew immediately that i won't be going to work as well. i just don't want to risk going out because of the floods in the city. and it's always a perfect cuddling day with the kids because we'll all be home together.
early in the morning, we were poised to watch PGT (pilipinas got talent -- yes the little family are suckers for pgt) videos on youtube. then the power went out.
so what to do? no computer, no tv, no cellphone charger!
we PLAYED! literally. kids did 2-hour taekwondo training with the hubby. and we hung around the house, laughing, telling jokes, hugging. best part was, the kids put glue on their hands, waited for it to dry and peeled them off. that, i say, was fun. pointless, but fun. wasteful, but still, fun.
i know it's sort of insensitive to be so happy today while some people out there are being whipped by the storm. i really feel sorry for them and our family always prays for the less fortunate. this is how our garden looked like today:
oh and by the way, the door going up our floor got wrecked. my brother's mechanic left it open and since the winds of pedring were so strong, it banged itself until it dislodged itself from the hinges. the hubby tried to temporarily fix it until my dad's carpenter comes but my dad went upstairs to visit us and couldn't put it back. and as he came in to get help, the door banged itself one last time, and the glass broke together with the jalousies.
so much for a happy, stormy day.
