Best Moment, Fatigue, and Conference Chat

I'm pretty tired again today, so I'm not going to write long yet. I just wanna write down the best moment that happened last night. My Valentine wasn't anything special, but it was simply marvelous when we laughed a lot in bed before we went to sleep and then ESPECIALLY when hubby said, "I'm proud of myself for having you in my life." Mmmmm...I almost shed a tear he he he he...He really scored LOADS of love points by saying that to me HO HO HO HO HO HO HO...

I also wanna say that the other day I had a conference chat in Yahoo Messenger with three of my friends from Indo. They are all young mothers (read: their babies are less than a year old). It was kinda funny when I joined the chat room. They were busy talking about their babies and their progress. They also shared some of their concerns as mothers. Unfortunately I couldn't relate to them even though I understood about their concerns. I just couldn't share anything personal with them except what my own mother told me about me when I was a baby he he he...

It was nice to get a glimpse of a mother's life, but then in a way I also felt alienated, since I couldn't really comment much. I'm not saying this because I don't want to have another conference chat with them, because it was still FUN no matter what!!! But it reminded me of the fact that when you haven't really experienced something, even though you know the theories, you still can't wholly understand the depth and breadth and height that experience can affect yourself. Plus each experience is unique in itself. Thus it reminded me that I really know nothing. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. Knowing nothing is better than pretending to know everything or believing that you know everything, when in fact, you don't know that much. Knowing nothing is better just as long as you want to continue learning.

Gee...this is what happens when my brain is affected by fatigue and coffee. I go babbling about such a topic, even though I wasn't really planning on writing much. I guess it's tough for me to write a short note, unless I only have 10 minutes ha ha ha ha ha...

But you don't mind that, do you? HE HE HE HE HE HE HE HE HE... Mom sent me an email today. She said that there was a concert in one place in Bandung which became chaotic. Lots of people got drunk and some people got killed by being trampled upon. Gee...such a nice way to die! And yes, I'm being sarcastic here!

Good news is that Dad's finally got some fish. My brother bought some for him and he'd buy more later on. Dad's been SO excited about getting some fish for himself so that he has something else to do he he he he...My brother told me that he had cleaned up the aquarium given by my brother's wife's Dad very joyously and diligently. It reminded me of the time when my Dad was unemployed and then he started buying fish as a hobby and he and Mom managed to sell many fish that was pretty popular at that time. Mom helped Dad make "tasty" food for the fish so that they would get the best nutrition to produce offspring he he he he he...

OK, I'm going to stop here and maybe I'll blog-hop tomorrow or Sunday. My brain is really muddy right now. Wish you a WONDERFUL weekend ahead! ;-D

P.S. Read something this morning which really hit the nail on the head:

Grief changes our perspective on we deal with sorrow will make us either bitter or better.
