The holidays are usually an extremely busy, happy time for Cor and I. This is Sai's second Christmas and although he was more active this than the last, for me, this year just seemed so much harder. We were mad broke. This broke was to the point where I couldn't afford to put lights on the tree. Nobody noticed. We didn't buy him gifts until two days before Christmas and we no longer have our car. At a time where togetherness seems to be the norm, our situation prevented us from truly being together. I was always at home because I didn't have the funds to travel with them to take Sai to school.
I do believe that hardships are a testament of our strength and commitment to ourselves and each other but this shit was "tew much".
Still thankful though.
My dad had taken Sai yesterday but Cor and I didn't have the funds to go out and have a good time. Instead we had a Chinese and Chill session (the Netflix has been off since last week)
We argued so many times this month. So much so that I lost count. However, hiding from our friends, pigging out on spicy pork fried rice, binge watching Quantico and cuddling on our couch was probably the best weekend I had with him in months. Just goes to show you that money doesn't mean everything.
For 2016, I have high hopes. I hope that Cor and I can keep the newly founded bond that we built over the poorness in 2015 but at the same time maintain the honest relationship that we worked so hard on. I aspire to be a better spouse for Cor and a better mom to Sai. A better friend to my framily.
