I Miss It

Thank GOD that the food we brought in our small getaway was just enough at least before we checked out. I was so worried that we will not make or at least our food but good thing it did, I just asked my niece who followed us that night to buy some rice because we did not bring anything extra. To my surprised when we went home yesterday, we still have some prawns left, so we did not cooked anything at dinner because we already have prawns anyway I don’t have time to eat at all since I am running out of time to get to work.

When I was at the beach, I found out that the time had a little ice cream treat. I miss it, I was looking forward for this little gathering but I miss it. I mean nowadays this small gathering is very important to me already because we don’t know that one of us will resign the next day and we will never see each other again since we are walking different paths at all.

Cancelled Lunch But Had Dinner With My High School Classmates

Our Supervisor made a decision to have our lunch gathering on Monday, which was yesterday.

I was so hesitant to join because I had an interview with a prospect company. I just told them that I will follow, hoping I can follow because I didn’t know how many minutes or hours I have to wait for my interview. My friend kept on texting me about their status if they had eaten already or not. I was able to finish the interview in no time but I had an assessment yet. Good thing they let me choose, either I will take it right away or after lunch. Of course, I took the after lunch so I can join my friends and my team mates for an awesome lunch by the beach.

I got there at 12:30 in the afternoon, they just started also eating. They ordered fried cat fish, kinilaw, and tinola with native chicken on it. When I arrived I can’t help but to drool because I was starving the moment I saw the foods. This is it, no time to pause but to attack! I finish the meal in no time too, oh yeah I can finish my meal for like 15 minutes, aside from I was totally in a hurry with the assessment waiting for me, the food is just so tempting especially my favorite kinilaw. It was a good thing that I had stomachache before lunch so I was able to take medicine before lunch and I felt better even after lunch.

I want to go back there; maybe with my kids I am sure they would love it there. I want to introduce them to places and restaurant they haven’t been before. I am sure also that this resto is not that expensive, I did not ask how much our supervisor has to spend with all of us there at the resto but I am sure their foods are not that pricey.

Lisa’s Resto wait for me and my kids in the day ahead.

The lunch gathering was cancelled because it was move a day before but this day, Tuesday I have dinner with my high school friends and I am so excited!

Three Tips for Getting a Night Out without the Kids

When you have children, it can be hard to find time to spend with your spouse. Often, people are too busy with their responsibilities, such as work, housework, and social obligations. Then, when they do have some downtime, they are too tired to go out. As a result, marriages can suffer from the lack of attention. Luckily, it’s easy to fix this problem with just a little bit of effort. Don’t let your relationship suffer because you put off getting out for a while. Here are three tips for getting a fun night out with your spouse.

1) Find a Sitter

Traditionally, people would find a babysitter through their neighborhood friends or family. If you’re lucky, you have a family member or trusted friend that you can ask to babysit. If you don’t, it’s easier than ever to find a professional sitter, thanks to the internet. There are a number of services that will perform background checks on the babysitters that they offer. For a slightly cheaper option, join your local parents’ group on social media and ask for recommendations. This way, you can trust that the babysitter has some experience. Make sure whoever you hire is CPR-certified.

2) Get Reservations

Don’t let this opportunity go to waste. Take the time to plan something really special and lock down reservations in advance. And don’t settle for second best on this special night out. For example, if you’re looking for Plano TX seafood restaurants, choose a well-established and highly recommended restaurant like The Boiling Pots. After dinner, go out to see a local show or take in a movie. Get tickets in advance online so that you don’t leave anything to chance. If you can’t think of anything exciting, check out local events and festivals in your area.

3) Don’t Worry While You’re Out

Often, parents go out for an evening, only to spend half of the time worrying about their children at home. Avoid this by making sure that your babysitter is qualified and knows how to get in touch with you. Keep your phone on, so that you don’t have to worry about missing any calls or messages. If there are any special instructions for the babysitter, write them out clearly before you leave.

Take the time to improve your marriage with a night out. Most importantly, have fun!
