Time, Change and Happy Thoughts
I've got my family here with me now for the next 8 weeks, and I'm happy!
At the same time I will be adjusting to having people with me. It's not bad at all. It just means I have to change my ways and thinking, because I've got other people to think of as well now. (Not that I've not thought of them in the past). (But am sure some of you in the same boat would understand!)
Hosting them for the next two months means I will have to share my apartment space with them which I am not used to anymore. My abode will be home to my family now. And having lived for close to 5 years independently I am in for a lot of adjustments. Temporarily.
Queues to use the bathroom, the PC, and just synchronising my schedule to theirs, being patient while visiting places that is ordinary to me while in their eyes will be foreign. Early today I was doing grocery shopping for us and I totally forgot they were with me! Bad me! But it was busy inside Woolworths and so my head was fuzzed and I was bumping into people left and right! But I didn't leave them or anything. It was just a short lapse in my memory! :D Nevertheless, I am so looking forward to spending more time with them as well!
Hosting visitors means that I get to be a tour guide again (which I truly truly love doing). I get to see the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo, Sydney Aquarium, etc. again. Whenever I take my visitors to these places I get renewed and try to see it from their point of view, as if it was my first time to see these places again! Which is such a beauty, as you might have noticed from most of my entries that I have a love affair with Sydney. Praising most of what the city can offer!
