Yeah, I know, I haven't updated for ages! But the past two weeks have been one of the happiest time in my life!!! (ok, I was very happy too when I married Tetsuya, but this is a different types of happiness)
Remember I blurted out on TV about wanting to meet my Mom? Well, she came to our last concert in Tokyo to watch me perform. Of course I didn't know that until I got back to the backstage, but she was waiting for me in the changing room.
My mom looked the same to me, but she looked so much older at the same time. It was such a hard feeling to explain. I just can't. I'm going to quote what Ryu-chan says, "it's like you haven't eaten ice-cream for ages, and you just miss it so much that you don't remember what it tastes like anymore no da! But you start remembering once you see it again! But it tastes different from what you remember!" Well, it doesn't make sense? That's my Ryu-chan for ya. But it makes perfect sense to me!
Ok, anyway, the first thing my Mom did was to pull me into a hug. For a very long time.
Then she slapped me.
By the time I recovered from the shock of seeing her/being hugged/being slapped, I found the two of us crying and trying to speak at the same time, and we couldn't hear a word what each other was saying since we were so loud and our voice echoed in the room.
Then we started laughing like it was the funniest thing in the world. Don't ask, like mother, like daughter, and I am just as weird as her. However, I knew that everything was going to be fine between her and me after this. Sure, we still have a lot of things that we need to sort out first, but we love each other. Everything is going to be all right, I just know it.
I'm planning to buy a house for Mom near mine, so I can go visit her more often. That's the least I could do for her. I'm glad that Saki and "Granny" gets along well.
It's the best feeling in the world- to recover something you thought you have lost before. I'm just overwhelmed with gratefulness. I'm so happy that I kiss and hug everyone in sight! I think I freaked out the guys at work. They must think I suddenly develop a crush on them or something. =P Blah! NEVER!!! Since when I'm interested in anyone under the age of 50 anyway!!!
We got so quiet at work after the concerts were over. I think we should throw another party again! ^.^ The one Tohma arranged for last Christmas was elegant and tasteful, but I want a crazily fun one this year! ^__^
