Well I went and got myself a cold. I’m hoping that it will be gone by Sunday (14 May) because that is when we are leaving to go to Cebu. It already looks like my wife is not going because she doesn’t feel like going. The whole reason for the trip is for me to go see the doctor there about the swelling in my legs. I’ve still got 3 days (and 4 nights) so I think I’ll be well enough to go. I’ve been so tired today.
For Expat Day today we had about a dozen expats and 8 wives/gfs. That’s a pretty good showing. We have had more there but not very often. I think I will not go to Mango tomorrow. I will try to rest up. I would like to go there on Friday night to listen to the band but I might not do that either unless I’m feeling much better.
I talked with Christian and he might be interested in being my workout partner. He is in much better shape than I am but I just need someone to go with me and push me a little bit. If he decides not to do it then my nephew said he would. The only problem with that is that I would have to pay the monthly fee for my nephew. I’d rather not have to pay double but to lose all this damn weight it would be worth it.
Just a couple of days ago I filed my claim for that Facebook settlement. I’m not expecting much, but I filed it. I hope I put the right information because I had to remember if my account here is the same one I had in the US. I’ve had a lot of trouble with Facebook for a while and at one time they canceled that old account. I started a new one but one day the old account popped back up and I’ve been using it ever since. We’ll see if there is a problem. I think the deadline to apply is 25 Aug 23 and payments should start coming out the next month (Sep).
I am going to be trying something new. A thing that pays you to write online. From what I understand it is an off-shoot of Steem. A program I did before. That did not go well for me but I figure that I will try it again and it should be better this time around. I forget the name of it though. Christian is getting me into it and he will be coming by to help me set it up on my computer. I thought I had the name readily available but I can’t find it at the moment. Doesn’t matter. I will have it later and let y’all know.
Well, it’s only 9:30 pm on 10 May but I think I will head to bed. Hopefully my wife will turn the tv down a bit to let me get to sleep. Of course this cold is kicking my ass so I just may go to sleep anyway.
I still have 2 more posts scheduled to post. One on 12 May and one on 16 May. This one I decided to do and slip in today. May 16th is when I should be back from Cebu so I will have all new things to type about. The doctor’s visit and going to my first mall in Cebu. I need to remember to bring a cooler to put some sliced meats in it if I find them in Cebu. Especially if I can find the bologna. I wonder if they have rye bread there? They sure don’t here. A ham & cheese on rye with a little mayo sounds pretty good.
Of course I need to monitor all that if I ever want to lose all this excess weight. That’s something else I will be typing about. I will keep y’all up to date on how my weight loss is going (if I ever get started).
