Meeting mom day minus one (-1)

My brother texted a few hours back that they’re already boarding Delta. So yeah, I guess I’m counting down till their plane lands on Manila grounds.

A month ago, my lola requested me to help out in fixing the room that my mom will use in Bauan, Batangas. Thus, for weeks, I’d drop by every Sunday to oversee some cleaning and paintjob.

Nearing her scheduled flight, I had to somehow fix my own schedule since I am in between travels as well. Thus from Cebu, I’d be arriving back in Manila at 8:00 pm. My mom will arrive at 10:00 pm.

I’ve already hired a driver since I’m guessing I won’t be able to drive all the way to Batangas at almost midnight. I don’t want to drag other people to my accident prone self.

Do I feel excited? I dunno.
Do I feel scared? Definitely not.

I actually feel nothing. Inured. Calloused. I really have no adjective.

It’s just like another toxic month for me - filling in my calendar with family obligations, out of town meetings, paper works and stolen sleep in between.

But considering how much of a cry baby I can get, I’m readying myself for some major drama moment in the airport.

Damn you telenovelas for your exaggerated/ theatrical influence!

Thus, tomorrow marks my first meet up with my mom. Like some corny EB, we’d probably have a few hours of awkward moments. A hug here and there, but based from our phone conversations, there could be a lot of dead air.
Oh well papel. Wish me luck.

I’ve heard Terminal 1 doesn’t have those Letters in the arrival drive way anymore? No more of those standing on the first letter of your last name thing? talga?

Reunions are always an eye-opener. Whatever the outcome may be. I say, make the most of it.
