So many things have happened this month on my side of the family. And I was so behind the news for a number of reasons: 1) I didn't have an internet connection at home. 2) I was so busy trying to adjust to my routine. 3) It was too expensive to spend an hour or two at an Internet Cafe. But then I was able to talk to my Mom and she updated me on what's been going on.
And yes, there were two weddings and a funeral this month. A cousin got married last October 23 (Saturday) to his long-time girlfriend who happened to have the same first name as me. :D An uncle died of cardiac conditions and the funeral was held October 24 (Sunday). My brother, the youngest sibling, got married last October 26 (Tuesday).
I feel happy and sad at the same time. Happy for the weddings and new beginnings and sad for the loss of a relative and my inability to be physical present in these three events. And what's worse, I didn't have any idea that all these events are now things of the past so that I can't even say that I was with them in spirit. =(
