A Journal for Aiman - a page from FB, 20 January 2013

Today I need to pull myself together and gather enough strength and courage to get on with my life. It's been 5 days since we left Aiman Syafiq Azman in MRSM to start another phase of his life.

It's been almost 2 weeks since I last went online to check my personal emails.

It's also been almost 2 weeks that I last did any crafting. Was busy getting all the preparations ready since receiving the offer letter from MARA 2 weeks ago and then after coming back from Langkawi, I just couldn't get myself in the mood to sit in front if the laptop nor the sewing machine to do any work.

Today I will have to snap myself out of this mood. I thank Alllah that Aiman seems to be adjusting well and settling in. Now it's time that I start adjusting and settling into a new routine. I can do this. I need to do this for Aiman and hubby's sake and for my own sanity. May Allah give me strength. Amin.

Noni Moon Move on. Time flies faster when u r doing things. U'll only make urself sIck moping around.

Paul Lionel Actually bukan lebih senang ke Nik Ainun? No need to send him to school, no need to worry about his activities after school, no need to think about his meals, house will remain tidy, laundry tak banyak etc.. Well that's what my mother said though I know she misses her children when they leave the house but I do see her point in having lesser to do and more time to herself. Besides, your friend is right; mid-term break will come and then you can get all excited about planning his homecoming and he will enjoy all the pampering from his mother. I should know

Nik Ainun Paul, I am sure that is easier said than done, but I am trying. Have started by going through some emails this morning.

Nik Ainun Noni, when he got the offer letter, I told myself that I will use up the time spent ferrying him around for his activities to do more crafting and going online or simply to do the things I want to do. In short, some ME Time. But when we came home from Langkawi, I felt guilty for actually thinking that I could fill that gap with ME Time. I under estimated my own emotional reaction to the situation.

Nik Ainun Thanks, Noreen! Hugs!

Noni Moon Tak pe, time will heal all. Some day or another we mothers will have to let go. Nak tak nak terpaksa! Boo hoo.

Nik Ainun Paul, I said to myself the same thing - no need to rush to send him to school in the morning, but when I passed by the exit into Kota Damansara each morning on my way to work, tears fell beyond control.

Zarina ZA Maybe its time for an NNC bee. We will cheer you up for you to start crafting.

Zuraidah Omar Nun, Aiman will be okay, kids are so adaptable. But you do need to settle into a new routine and get on with this new phase of your life as a family. Take care and looking forward to more upbeat statuses from u

Shanny Khoo Aww.... It is difficult but I am sure that you can overcome it with time. Mid term is just around the corner and so is CNY break, unless they can't come back for it? Zarina ZA is right, time for a Bee!
