Sunday night, Monday morning blues

It's Monday. And maybe that's why things that were supposed to have affected me a while ago are only doing so now. My family and I haven't had a very pleasant Chinese New Year. First up, on the eve, I drove my mother and a bag of oranges and CNY cookies to my Granduncle's. I reminded my mother to call ahead to make sure they were home even though she kept saying 'they sure home one lah'. So she called ahead, and an aunt answered, and said Granduncle passed away that morning. Bummer. U-Turn go home. Then my mother hosted a dinner on the second day of new year's, and had received a phone call from a family friend a few days before that, saying he wouldn't be able to make it because he was in hospital. He passed away on New Year's Eve as well. Or maybe it's just too darn hot.
Now I've heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord But you don't really care for music, do you? It goes like this The fourth, the fifth The minor fall, the major lift The baffled king composing Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen

Surf stop:
iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: Hallelujah - k.d. lang - Hymns Of The 49th Parallel, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

I can't tell whether you're happy, sad, or just indifferent in your post, but my condolences nevertheless. Hope your family's coping.
