GOOD. I came to work today and guess who’s the first person I saw? Who else, but J-A-N-E-T, she is back! I was so happy to see her, and she was all smiles when she saw me down the corridor. Gave each other bigs hugs, as if we haven’t seen each other for years.  Thank heavens the HR and Legal team were able to win her favor. And after a couple weeks of vacation, (as we call it) she’s ready to get back to work and eager show herself to that wicked witch on the fourth floor. Hahahah!

BAD. I’ve been really, really bad! I got into an argument with my brother after he (accidentally) forgot to return the rental car last Friday. I felt so sorry for yelling at him, as he really didn’t deserve it! (not this time) I simply lost my temper when I found out I was charged an extra $120 dollars on my credit card, for returning the rental car late (was returned just yesterday). But Dad was right, it was my responsibility to return the car and not my brother. He was doing me a favor I asked and I should feel humbled. And so I phoned him earlier to say I was sorry. Bad Nelly!

HAPPY. The fact that brother really didn’t seem to care that I yelled at him. Earlier, when I called and said I was sorry; he just answered “Don’t worry about it. We’re cool!” I guess he’s use to my bad temper. My screaming didn’t seem to bother or maddened him at all. Hahahaha!

SAD. Over the week end, as I was lullying myself at the beach house. I was told that my stepmother was rushed to the hospital for fainting while in the shower. But I didn’t get the message till I got back Sunday night. According to the doctors, my stepmom had a stroke and her blood pressure was way upscale. The doctors also discovered a blood clot in her head that may have been hereditary.  I paid her a visit last night at the hospital and was happy to see that she’s better. She can even walk herself to the restroom and get out of bed with very little assistance. However, the doctors are suggesting that she sees a specialist to evaluate her condition. Thank heavens she’s fine!

    oooh, glad to hear janet’s back and that there’s no hard feelings between you and your brother. it takes a lot to admit we’re wrong and to say sorry to someone we’ve wronged. 😀

    i wish your stepmom the best of health. i hope she didn’t get seriously hurt when she fainted in the shower. it’s good to know she’s a little better now. 🙂

  2. sardonicnell · October 18, 2007

    thanks weng! so so happy that janet’s back in the office. i have missed her so much. para kasi akong nawalan ng ally sa ofc eh, hahaha! she fills a huge role, and now that she’s working again; we can go back to regular programming!

    as for my brother, what i did was awful and i do admit i was wrong. kaya nga i called him earlier to ask for an apology. tao lang naman tayo, dba? i was just happy that my brother didn’t hold grudges for what i said to him.

    my stepmom, per my conversation with my dad. she’ll probably be release from the hospital by friday. she didn’t get seriously hurt naman, besides the bruise she had on her side from that fall in the shower. sana tuloy tuloy na ang paggaling nya, worried na worried din kasi ang dad ko eh.

  3. thess · October 18, 2007

    really Janet’s back? now that’s justice! Happy for her (and U) Love ka naman ng brother mo, how sweet 🙂 kami kahit online away pa rin eh *lol* kidding lang, nag mellow na kami ha ha!

    uyyy, I’ll include your stepmom in my prayers, I hope she recovers completely! Alam mo ba na most of the time ay sa shower inaatake ng stroke? if I remember it correctly, malamig ang semento or tiles then mataas ang BP, nagsho-shoot up sa head ang pressure. If I find the time, i google ko nga ito sa mga medical websites ulit.
    have a good working day, sister..and I will email you my postal address.

  4. rollercoastermom · October 18, 2007

    wow! you conquered the witch! 😀 hooray for you and janet! sarap siguro makita yung face niya the first time she sees janet back. hahaha!

    you know, you’re lucky you have what it takes to admit you are wrong and say sorry. a lot of people find it hard to do that. your brother is equally lucky to have you! you’re right, everybody makes mistakes. it’s what you do when you realize your mistake that counts.

    i hope your stepmom gets better soon! i wish her a safe and speedy recovery! 🙂

  5. sardonicnell · October 18, 2007

    hi sister thess! was really happy to see janet back and ang bilis nyang ibalik ang kanyang mga kikay na gamit sa desk nya, hahaha. she hasn’t seen the blair witch yet, at may sakit raw kahapon (sa utak kaya!). sabi ko nga kay janet eh rarampa kami ng harap ng ofc ng hitad mamaya. at ng malaman nyang, nabuhay ulit sa janet. hahaha!

    was thankful sobra, that my bro didn’t hold any grudges. he was even laughing on the phone when i called him. siguro eh kong sa iba yon eh baka nabuntal na ako sa aking pagtatalak. just glad we’re both ok na!

    talaga ate? baka nga that’s one of the reasons why my stepmom had that incident. buti nga at she didn’t her head on the shower floor. thanks for including us in your prayers, that was very sweet and kind of you.

    thanks again sis, really missed you, have a wonderful day as well. mwaah!

  6. sardonicnell · October 18, 2007

    hello kris! i can’t wait as well to see the face of that witch when she sees janet. ano kayang maging reaksyon ng bruha? hahahah, sama ko talaga!

    about my bro naman, it didn’t took me long to realize what i did wrong. tsaka pinagsabihan din ako ng tatay ko, di rin daw tama yong sinabi ko. but with all heart and human frailty, i do admit na mali ako. at buti nalang di galit sa akin ang aking brother. surprisingly, he wasn’t moved by my tragic speech. hahahaha!

    thank you kris for including our family in your prayers. that means a lot to us, promise! God bless you too and your beautiful family. mwaaah!

  7. Meeya · October 18, 2007

    hi nell, i love the new look! 🙂 anyway, like what they said, i’m glad janet is back (korek si thess, hustisya yan!), i also applaud you for accepting that you were wrong on that particular situation (that takes a lot of maturity, pramis!), and i will be praying for your stepmom.

    and, i hope the rest of the week will just be all good. 🙂

  8. banggigay · October 18, 2007

    life is a roller coaster ride eh? but these are life’s spices you wouldn’t trade for anything! as in! 🙂

  9. sardonicnell · October 18, 2007

    hi meeya! glad you like the new template, it’s my halloween look. ok ba? so happy that janet is back, it was hard not having her around. wala akong kakampi eh, hahaha. pero kaabang-abang etong pagkikita ni janet at ng bruha. i wonder what her reaction would be when she discovers janet got rehired. hmmmm, abangan!

    as for that incident with my bro, that was really humbling. matanda man ako sa kanya, eh nagkakamali din ako. and ako naman kasi yong tao na aako ng kasalanan kong meron man. besides, love ko naman yong ungas kong kapatid, kahit ganon yon! hahahah. biro lang hah 😉

    speaking of my stepmom, she’s better and was able to talk to her last nite. sana eh tuloy tuloy na ang recovery nya. i thank you so much for your prayers, it helps during this troubling times.

    thanks again and i hope you have a wonderful day!

  10. sardonicnell · October 18, 2007

    so true, bangge! roller coaster talaga, sobra. you never know what will happen next, surprise surprise eka nga nila!

  11. Leap of Faith! · October 20, 2007

    Nell, nice to know that you won your battle against the witch. Welcome back to Janet.

    Hope your stepmom fully recovers soon.

  12. sardonicnell · October 20, 2007

    hello keith! did you guys go on your vacation? speaking of janet, was so happy talaga that she’s back. she helped me so much last week and syempre may kakampi ulit ako against that witch, hahaha 😀

  13. Leap of Faith! · October 21, 2007

    Yes we did, Nell. So tiring but well worth it. It’s always nice to have someone efficient to help you with work and to just be there when you go into battle with the forces of evil. 🙂

  14. bw · October 21, 2007

    Glad your step mom is fine and dandy now. Just keep the docs monitor her for a bit 🙂

  16. sardonicnell · October 22, 2007

    thank you, bw. stepmom has to stay a bit longer in the hospital for monitoring. looks like her speech has been slightly impaired cause of the stroke, other than that everything else is fine. glad you like the pic :mrgreen:

  17. Jen · October 30, 2007

    hi nell, playing catch up here.. but i hope your stepmother is okay now. sorry to hear about her stroke, that’s so sad. kinda makes me think of my parents and thoughts of what if something happens to them when i’m not around comes to mind. haay.

  18. sardonicnell · November 1, 2007
