Unaccustomed to being all alone all day, I was feeling depressed today. I'm just spoiled having Tim work at home all the time. One of my favorite things to do when I am alone is to eat comfort foods (my comfort foods are different from everyone else's comfort foods). My two kids had pizza and I had - Paksiw na Pata. I remembered that the last time I had Paksiw na Pata, I had it at the Intercontinental Hotel in Makati two years ago. Then my mind visited memories that are related to the food I was eating. Then the thought of my mother came to me because she made good Paksiw (she called it patatim). I used to work away from home and came home only on weekends. Mother would cook it for me during those weekends. It is a very pleasant thought.
But then I remembered the last time I saw her. She was very ill (from cancer). Tears came to my mind just thinking about her...
I decided to go outside and fetilize the lawn. Then I did DDR. :)
