It’s always been a pleasure for me to be talking to my husband even if it’s just through chat. I really prefer to talk to him personally or through the phone where I can hear his voice but I would be thankful even for a few hours of talking to him. His profession never allows him a lot of idle time snce he is always on call to fixed different IBM machines. And most of the time, the calls are crucial. So having this two nights of talking to him is really a gift for me.
At night, when I go to bed, I already don’t have the energy. It really is tiring to walk with a walker. And the fatigue that is part of LUPUS contributes to my status. But I am happy because for the past two nights I was able to talk to my husband. Having to chat with him helps me combat my depression. He is always a source of happiness for me.
I was telling him of all the activities I had for this week. I was able to clean the living room. Since the little one is bugging me to find her hunting binoculars that her dad bought for her. We were able to rearrange the toys and yes, found the binoculars.
I cannot help but look at the pictures of the Lemonade Tea Party of the little girl over and over again. They are just so pretty. You see, as part of their curriculum the school created this activity to show the kids how to socialized. So they asked the parents to let the kids go to school wearing their mommy or daddy’s clothes plus some accessories. The girls were so glamorous because they even brought along their Mommy’s bag. One kid has her mom’s LV. haha.
No, I am not yet bored. Nor would I exchange my life right now to be back in the corporate world. But sometimes I cannot help but think if it would help us attain our goals faster if I go look for a job. Of course not a healthcare job since my specialty is in computers and technology. Last night, I was telling the husband that I feel I am not contributing much to our earnings. That I think it’s time that I should help him. As much as possible the husband does not want me to work. He knows that if ever I try to I won’t be again face with stress since I tend to solve everything that passes by me. But he also is always supportive of what I like. Okay, I admit he spoils me.
It’s Saturday and that means it’s grocery time for us. We do the grocery and market stuff during the weekdays. For our grocery I call for delivery. Today, our list includes frozen foods, rice, meat, eggs etc. While I was checking on the receipt I was surprised to see the price for one box of Chuckie. It’s Php600+! Really, I did not know that the said chocolate milk is that expensive. Okay, it’s on the box and it contains a lot of pieces but man, I was really surprised. Maybe, I should switch the kids to Milo. hahaha. Well, I don’t have the heart to do that actually. The kids love Chuckie and they don’t drink any other beverage. No they don’t take in soda, oh they drink ice tea. But that’s it. Sometimes grocery supplies suprise me.. haha.
I am currently looking for a gift for my niece who would be turning 7 this March 1. She’ll be having a party on the 5th so we are heading north on Saturday. Right now, I still don’t have any idea what gift to give her. Last Christmas we gave her PSP + 3 games + PSP camera. I was telling my older sister ( her mom ) that I should buy her another memory card loaded with PSP games. But she told me not to since her husband plans to hide the PSP first because it’s still school time. That leaves me again with no gift idea.
Imagine for this week alone our grocery amounted to almost Php 4k. That includes some meat, cookies, rice, milk, ingredients of spaghetti, ice cream, toiletries etc. Weekly we do the grocery and it always amounts from 3k to 4k. I am just thankful that I only have to call the grocery and they would deliver what we need. It’s a favor for me because of the accident. Aside from the grocery we also spend around Php 500 to 1k for the market (veggies, fish and fruits). I am not complaining though. I just wish that the exchange rate would be better.
I told the husband to start shopping for school supplies now so that he won’t cram when it’s time for him to go home for a vacation. He was asking me what I wanted him to buy until we decided it’s best to do the shopping here. haha. But I told him to shop some little things for the house which we can’t buy here in the country. For one, I cannot find those Foogo container here. I have been searching high and low and cannot find any source. Well, they are ebay sellers but the Foogo they are selling have straws. Anevay already have two of those and unfortunately they don’t sell spare. Then I told the husband to buy some shoes. Not that nike inflict wrestling shoes.
Here I am can’t sit still. My mind is buzzing with a lot of things. I wanted to do a lot of things but as of the moment, my movement is still contained. I am dependent on my walker as well as my brother and sister in law for household chores. But I now a little more time I would be on my own again. And I am eagerly anticipating that moment. That’s why I am planning right now what I would do once I am up and about. For now this are our plans.
Last night the husband was asking me where I am planning to enroll the little girl next school year. I told him I think it’s best if we stick with her current school since she does not speak Filipino yet. I also like the way she blossom under the school care so yes, I think the preschool is good for her. One more year with them would be a good way to prepare Anevay for big school. And I want her to experience all the activities that she had missed because of my accident. And I like the location of the school. If by next school year I am well already, I can again do the walking exercise I used to do while waiting for her dismissal. That way, I can be healthy and thin without taking some diet supplements. I am really keeping my fingers crossed on that.
