Home with my kids.

These few days, the people I have been spending most time with are my kids. Afternoon is usually our time together, when they have gotten back from school. We'll have a simple lunch together, followed by some play time, then getting the inevitable homework out of the way, then play or relaxation time if they've got nothing else on.

I have come to realise I really enjoy hearing them laugh and play, especially with each other. Sure, sometimes they are unbearable cranky (or sometimes I am) but for the most part, I really enjoy being with them. I spent yesterday afternoon watching "Home Alone" with dd alone. (Ds was busy assembling his Lego robot.) It's a really old show, but most of their generation have never heard of it, so she had a great deal of fun. I hardly spend much alone time with dd, because she spends so much time at school now, and during her free time, her brother is usually around too. But some girly time together was great, and I shall plan to catch Home Alone 2, 3, and 4 again with her soon (Yes, I got the DVD box set!)

You never know.

You never know when your plans may change or why. I guess we just have to make the most of what life throws at us.

For the next few days, I'll be at home, reading, surfing, playing Nintendo, sleeping, watching an inane amount of TV (including old Mediacorp re-runs, JAG, and B-grade-but-still-riveting movies on Hallmark channel and HBO) :) And if the urge hits me, there's always online retail therapy! heh heh! Great stuff here and here. I simply love this too. (If anyone is feeling generous, I like the white, and in size 7.5 C please. If you're feeling EXTRA generous, might as well get me the black as well.)

Last but not least, I'm so inspired by this. Simply beautiful!

Oh, and before I forget, Happy New Year of the Rat! May this year bring prosperity, happiness and health to you and your loved ones.
