Paranoid Inside The Restaurant

After we had our family summer get away, Faith on the other hand, for one week, she got too busy with her swimming class in Red Cross, and you know how much the water can make you feel starve after your done swimming. So there are times I would bring her some crackers she can eat while we are walking on the street going home but the first day was the best for Faith because after the class I bought her to Jollibee, it was my off that time so I have all the time to be dragging, we just went the Jollibee nearby the bank where I can withdraw a little so we have something to spend. When we arrived in Jollibee, Faith pointed the foods she’d like to have right away, while I was waiting for our order, she saw the ads to become one of the kids’ crew this summer but I just shrugged it off, maybe if I have enough budget then I can enroll her. I just hope that the car will not going to be damage again because I am tired already spending some bucks for the repair.

Moreover, Faith enjoyed our bonding together. I learned that she can be trusted to just stay in one corner if I asked her to, I went to the comfort room and when I went back she still sat in her chair and she said that she did not talk to any strangers at all, when it was her turn to go to the comfort room, I can’t help to worry so I got up and followed her to the bathroom, I called her name and she said “Mom, I was just peeing hisssh!” I know that I need to trust her but can you blame me if there are things that’s going on my mind that I can’t help to worry? I don’t want to feel sorry in the end because I did not check, I mean even though we are in a restaurant and it is guarded, it is just that there are things that can happen inside and without us knowing it, everything went to chaos because I did not check.

Anyway, even though I was paranoid, good thing Faith still enjoyed our little dinner together and she is looking forward for so many times this summer.

The Gathering With My High School Friends

It was last Tuesday that I and my High School classmates agreed to meet up. One of our classmates will be going back to Dubai soon so she invited us for a small gathering. I was hesitant to go but it has been a while that I saw them plus I keep on skipping our reunion so since it was my off that night. I drove my car to the restaurant where they agreed to meet up, even without sleeping at all. I just sleep after the small gathering.

I was on my way there and I saw the updates in the Facebook, I am so excited but I was shy, I mean it has been a while and I kept on declining the invites for the reunion but I am getting near, this will be it or never at all. The moment I saw them, I saw the smiles again and when I was approaching I heard the big laugh again. Oh the same laugh, the same giggle I heard during high school. It has been a while classmates and you were all there smiling at me. It feels like nothing has change after of so many years, maybe something has change, the whereabouts, the catching up, and the events that you were in.

I hope I can still catch up, I heard the many reunions that you were in and I was not there and I feel like running to know all the things about all of you but of course, the table was so long and that we could not even hear each other because of the music that was so loud and could be so deafening.

But I am glad, I am so much glad that all of you were fine, all of you survive in life and even so successful in your choice of path. I am fine too, I got a great husband even though he is not here and he is miles apart but the support is endless that I could not even complain. I think I am successful in my own way.

 

Thank you for the meal classmate and the invites going to the bar. It was not my first going to a bar but it was my first time after I got married so nevertheless, it is still my first time. The place is jam-packed with party goers, I can hear the click of the beers being toast, I can even hear the loud talk and oh that music again. It was so short but I had fun, I hope you all do too. It was nice seeing all of you!

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!
