Just a month ago we talked about our resolutions and New Year's goals. How is it going so far? Okay, it is a little too early to ask such a question….hihi! It is only the second month of the year. We still have plenty of time to make an achievement.
Anyway, one of my year 2008 goals is to give my parents a call as soon as possible, is there calamities happens here in the US to avoid their unnecessary apprehensive. Actually, I have this in my goal's list continuously from three years ago after the devastated hurricane Katrina struck New Orlean almost 3 years ago.
As you have already know it was big news all over the world for months including in Malaysia. I know my parents watch world news every day but never thought they can be so anxious since they didn't heard from us. Silly me thought they know we live in the Midwest that took a couple of days driving to New Orlean, so absolutely nothing to worry about. I didn’t get the sense until my sister rang and told me how anxious my parents were and asked her to give me a call. My mom was pretty disappointed because I didn't even bother to let them know how we were doing. Yup, I got an earful from my mom for not calling sooner….haha! I kept telling them not to be anxious regarding whatever they heard or see happening in this side of the world in the news. Guess the parents are always be parents even though the children already have their own family. They never stop worrying about their children.
Many of you probably heard about the deadly tornadoes that hits southern United States recently. Some parts of Tennessee were hit really bad and many losses the life. (My heart goes to their families). I knew it was in the news pretty much all over the world or not. But when I called my parents a few days ago, they saw it on television news. My dad said he told my mom not to be worried and Tennessee is a big state just like Sabah…hihi!
Yup, I made my mom worried again. I have been negligent(again)and only managed to give them a call three days later. Oh well, I need to do a better job.
