It took me some time to find the nice razor

Every time my father needs to buy something, I am the one who buy it for him like t-shirt, pants, shorts, undergarments, soap, and the likes. I must say I know what my father sizes, likes, and he wants. I am like his personal secretary. One incident that I cannot forget was when I bought razor for him. It took me some time to find a good one and he doesn’t like it. Said, that the one I bought is not a good quality. If I have known the edwin jagger razors back then, I would have buy a good quality of razor. Well, it was my first time so it is fine. But the next time I will buy razor for my father, I know now what to buy. The kind that my father would surely like.

His 67th

 photo 2cedb5ec-e37b-42ca-8593-7fee0a146e1c_zpsda9a5a8f.jpgMy father is turning 67 this April 7, 2014.  We think of having simple celebration without his knowledge.  The sister, brothers and I are talking of what we are going to prepare on his special day.  I told the sister that we will be buying two cakes for him, one from us and one from his grandchildren.  The cake also will complete the birthday celebration.  No cake, no birthday, according to the kids.  My father is so easy to please; a simple dinner at the house would mean so much to him.  He has invited two of his friend, the closest one.

On his 67th years, I thank God for giving him another year to be with us.  The father is very sick last year.  I wish that his condition will get better and he will not be so sickly anymore.  Although, we fought sometimes, I always pray for his health.  The photo above is the celebrant with the two cute cakes that the sister and I bought for him and the foods that we are going to eat.  It is not a best photo I must say because he doesn’t himself posing with the cakes.  Well, he said he is too old for this.  Lol  Again, happy 67th birthday father, we love you always!

Coffee maker for my father

I was helping the sister in cleaning her house when I saw her coffee maker. I asked her if she is still using it and said she didn’t use it anymore. Some parts of the coffee maker is not working anymore that is why the sister stuck it inside the drawer. My father is a coffee drinker and I wanted to buy him coffee maker but I do not have extra yet. Since the sister is no longer using her coffee maker, I asked him to give it to me and I will buy bunn replacement parts so that the father can use it. I do have not need to buy coffee maker for my father because the sister gave it to me her old coffee maker. Thanks to my dearest sister.

Should I be thankful or get hurt?

I remember 10 months ago, when I carried my father to the bathroom because he cannot stand on his own.  His knee is swelling.  I can tell that he is in pain.  And seeing him like that makes me sad.  Since my brothers and sister are working, I am the one who will attend the father.  But the siblings do help me at night.  I can’t forget the back pain I had, after carrying my father.  It was never in my dream that I can carry my father to the bathroom.  But I did able to carry him using the chair.  The memory is still fresh in my mind, when the father told me that he is thankful that I am plus size because if not I won’t be able to carry him.  Though there are possibilities since the father is very sickly as he getting old, I so wish that experienced won’t occur again.

 My fear comes back because the father now is sick again.  He cannot walk and stand on his own.  I have to assist him to get up and eat.  My goodness, the father is getting heavier.  I wish the brother is here to help me, because I am having some hard time carrying the father because my back is aching.  Guess the father is too heavy for me.  Once again, the father is thankful of my plus size.  I do not know if I should be thankful for what the father said or get hurt. Haha! Funny but it is true, because I am doing my hardest to lose weight, but seems like no effect at all to my father.

Teaching her how to pray the rosary

The father used to pray the rosary everyday.  The sister and I used to go with him then.  But stopped for sometime now because he gets very sickly.  Just recently, the father decided to pray again the rosary.  He has done it alone for a month until he decided to teach the seven years old niece to pray with him.  He gave to the niece the copy of how to pray the rosary and the responses.  Good thing the niece already memorized the Our Father, Hail Mary and Holy Mary.  It is easy for the father to teach the grand-daughter.  Now, the father’s partner in praying the rosary is his grand-daughter who is seven years old.

Since the niece is schooling in the morning, they do the rosary when he niece arrives from school.  The father tried to convince the nine years old niece but she does not want to.  Seeing them praying together, reminds me of the days where the father, sister and I used to pray the rosary.  I am happy though that the niece loves to do it.  She sometimes told the father to start the rosary the moment she enters the door.  wink*  I wish to pray with them one of these days but I cannot concentrate because of the two little fellas who keeps me busy.  I hope one day I will join them kneel and pray the holy rosary.
