It's been exactly 21 days since my last post in, which I ranted about being exhausted. Finally, last Friday I caved in after yet another bout of migraine. As usual, my migraines begin from the very moment I wake up in the morning (whenever it strikes). But thinking it's not a serious one, I decided to put mind over matter and headed out to work. While at work, nausea washed over me, I couldn't see straight and I knew. So I went to the Doctor near my office, got checked, given the funniest and truest prescription of, "Get a life! Take a chill pill once in a while. Doctor's orders!", and proceeded to go home for the rest of the day.
Yes, it was so that the Doctor gave me the day off from work due to stress related migraine. When I got home, the lights of my life had already arrived from Hippo and I instantly felt a whole lot of pressure lifted as I see their loving faces. My world became at peace again for that wonderful moment...
The next day was Earth Hour day. And I love my parents SO much for actually doing it for/with me. Saturday had it's share of drama but it was still good. But as Earth Hour was nearing, I had half a heart about it - my emotions were in turmoil. So I decided to go out and get dinner for us, which resulted in me being late for Earth Hour. My mood was further depressed as I made my way home only to see most of my neighbours and the surrounding neighbourhood totally disregarding Earth Hour (I know there are lots of sceptics around but I was wishful thinking nonetheless). You see, despite my half-heartedness, I was also hoping the spirit of unity surrounding the act would encourage me to continue with the motion. So imagine my delight when I got home and found my house pitch black in darkness. My parents, however much they do not really believe in Earth Hour, did it for me. A simple flick of the switch and my Mum was in the kitchen with only candles to light her way. Of course, we had our tele on (which technically means we cheated some) but that was a compromise between me and Dad so that the parents wouldn't miss the TV show - Akademi Fantasia. LOL! :D
And so, we had our candlelit family dinner for Earth Hour 2010.
I love my family...! :D :D
