August 28 – September 3, 2017
And what better way to welcome the month than through a bonus holiday for September 1 hehehehe. Adulting is hard sometimes so these non-working holidays are helpful in easing some of the work stress away whew.
Anyway, the OWF niece who came home last June 30 is now back in the Middle East. The last 2 months have gone by quickly but as I always say to her, we need to make some sacrifices if we want a better future. Working for 2 years is long to be away from her daughter but it’s also unfortunately not enough to save much so that she can stay here for good. She just needs to focus on her goals and she’ll be home for good eventually.
Anyway, last Monday, which was also a holiday was spent cooking food for packed lunch and dinner this week.
The rest of the work days are hectic and it’s really sapping my energy so I was so glad for the other holiday last Friday, where I just stayed at home watching movies (aka 3 movies), while waiting for the time when my niece had to leave for the airport.
Last Saturday was spent in the grocery and cooking food for this week’s meals. I’m slowly getting used to this weekend activity hehe.
I went to the mall last Sunday after mass for lunch and a few hours of window shopping. I went home after to rest more. I also spent a few hour researching for bedroom colors, bathroom designs and home office designs. It’s confusing and it’s challenging the non-interior designer in me hahaha.
By the way, last Thursday, I received a text from BDO that my ATM was blocked because it might have been used in compromised ATMs. I need to sort that out this week. I have already used the few hundreds in my wallet hehe.
Lastly, I started another segment in this blog – the Grocery Expenses. This will only include all expenses related to the groceries I need for my packed meals. This is so I will have a better idea on how much I really need to budget for these meals. It’s only now that I’m bringing packed meals to work so I really don’t know.
Have a great week ahead.
What Sunday lunch was like. Yellow Cab’s MyMix. All my favorites in one box at Php 195.00, cheaper than when you need to get whole orders of each hehe.
