my little edward scissorhands
okay, thought of writing something
the past few days, but i got side tracked as usual. i am now aching all
over. i have decided to start painting the house again. this time
though, it's the bedrooms and the hallway. the colour that we had on
before was this dark blue..and i did not like it. since we have lived
with it for over a year, i guess, it's okay to repaint it and i chose
this cooling sea foam colour. love it. i also painted the bathroom this
bright lemon green, called spring time by sherwin williams. wahh first
coat looks like i is some pukey yellow..but after 3 coatings and a body
ache later..it is actually not bad. same goes for the hallway..it took
two coatings so far, but i am guessing, i will have to apply another
layer to make the colour lighter. yeah yeah, i should've applied the
primer first to get rid of the darker colour underneath but ni kira kes
malas lah..hehe.the guest room will be this rich mocha colour while for
sarina's room..am still contemplating about it.
back to the title...sarah has discovered that she can cut her own hair.
this all you know already right..well, sometime last week she cut her
hair again. and not only that, i have found evidence that, she has been
cutting a lot of things. one example would be a juice box with sill
some juice left in it..and now all dried up and sticky on the side
table. i found pieces of paper cut into teeny tiny pieces all over the
place. anyway, the hair business, i finally had to cut her hair short,
so as to make it level. i made her sit on the ladder and tried as best
as i could to make sure that her hair is straight. it looked good
actually..looking at my handiwork. she now looks exactly like dora.
will post pictures when we get our laptop back :)
which will be today..yeay! so now i can surf like normal. have to say
that doc has been hogging this one lah. anyway, they repairman said
that they had to replace not only the main board, but the fan and the
hard drive...so we'll see. and yes, kak za..ni naru nyer laptop but for
some reason, they said that they had a bad batch of main board for this
model...hai..sib baik still under warranty. labour day weekend , we
went camping as usual kat wilson. it was cold on sat but on sun it was
so hot. even i got a bit burned. ingatkan i got this rosy hue on my
cheeks and nose ala natural..rupa2 nyer..kena sun burned lah...and i
thought doc had this ringworm infection on his neck..but also because
he got burned really bad and has peeling skin. this happened even after
he had put on the sunblock..hehe. okaylah..need to go and get ready to
go up to KC. later :)

well, our laptop is
still being serviced and to date i have not recieved any calls from the
repair place yet. the last time i sent it in, they called within 4 days
and the friday itself we went to collect it. i guess there must be
something major going on. who knows. as for this system..i can now get
online and do sutff, but for those blogs that has music videos, i am so
sorry. the system will crash when it is being loaded. i do not know
why..perhaps it is this version of windows. we may need to reload the
system. that is so annoying.
i know, my entry has been sporadic at best. i have to admit that, i am
going through some emotional stuff right now. i don't know what it
is..or maybe i do know. i am trying to deal with it the best i can. but
the way i am wired, i tend to withdraw and become closed even more. i
have become more and more withdrawn. even here....i do not feel like
making small talk. not sure why..maybe just plain lazy i guess.
oh yeah, sarina's b'day..we didn't have a big celebration. we took her
out for her b'day dinner, where in her normal loud voice, innocently
asking her father why he hated bush so much..hahahah. you can hear the
room getting quiet. so had to tell her that, that is something we do
not discuss out loud in public esp, in an red state..hahaha. ahhhh..the
innocence of children. i wish i could be like that. speak my mind and
not know the consequences..but too bad.. we are all adults now eh?
can't use that excuse anymore.
anyway, we talked about what to get for her. we don't really buy
presents dor birthdays. call us cheap parents..hehe. we stopped buying
toys a long time ago because we found out that she doesn't really play
with them. and books are out cos she has plenty already. so i figured
that, since she likes to listen to music, why not get her own mp3
player. and so it was decided...we got her the ipod shuffle. it may
beermm..an bit ostentatious for a 7 yhear old to be getting that..but
no fear..we did not buy a brand new one. we bought a refurbished one
that cost less than half the price of a new one. and i guess, since she
harlde get presents from us, this would be a good one for her 7th
b'day. grandma of course took her out shopping for clothes and we
really had a good time.
i think, i need to go home. being away for far too long is not good for the soul. oh well, we'll see what tomorrow brings :)
