Mom returned this afternoon from her one-month trip to KL and Shanghai. And the family dynamics returned to what it was like before. I think dad and my brother has gotten so used to being by themselves for the past month that mom’s return to the household was a jarring event.
Me? I’m just a neutral observer. And although I’m glad I’ve moved out a long time ago, I know even though dad and Marvin grumbles, they can’t survive in the house without mom. Actually, let me rephrase that – the house can’t survive with them looking after it.
And all of us do missed her during the past month, in our own ways.
