If we were having coffee, I will tell you I am ready to say good bye to February and hello to March. February 2017 has been a meh month, a month with not many chances for daytime outing. It has been raining all week and I am ready for some sunshine and warm weather.
Honestly, I don’t mind the rain. It’s the mists that bothers me. I don’t like misty rain. It doesn’t do anything other than leaving a layer of dust.
If we were having coffee, I will also tell you I learned I have another cousin, one about my age. He is said to be my father’s nephew. It makes me wonder just how big my family is. Apparently my grandma withheld the information because of my grandpa. He’s the remote control of the family, the big brother who’s always watching, the antagonist who didn’t get along with any of his family.
If we were having coffee, I will tell you about a recently developed fear of mine. After hearing so many revelation from my grandma, I am starting to be afraid I might be turning into my grandpa. He was, like me, over-sentimental. He collected newspapers and papers. I collect my assignments and handouts from my school years. I have boxes full of assignments dated all the way back to high school freshmen year in the basement and hearing about my grandpa’s room full of old newspapers, old books, and magazines frightened me. What if I’m turning into him? Into…a…hoarder?
Finally, if we were having coffee, I will tell you I am looking forward to next week. On Thursday, I am visiting my grandma’s family in the country. One of my cousins just gave birth and we will be celebrating the baby turning one-month-old. In China, this is a very big deal and this calls for a feast for the entire family. After this feast, I will be going to another feast the following Monday, the 6th. A cousin from my mom’s father’s side is getting married.
So many feasts! Hopefully the weather will be better. I will have to drag myself to the tracks in the exercise park and run a mile or two between the feasts.
