Today was a pretty active day for me. At least the afternoon was. My morning started out as usual, around 4:30 am this time, with me making coffee and checking things out on my computer. A pretty normal, boring morning. At around 11:30 am I headed to Mango to pick up some cheese cake for my wife. Jendy Robinson was making her first cheese cake and heard my wife loved them. We got 3 pieces of it … free. I didn’t get to taste it, but my wife said it was good, for a first try. I let Jendy know so we’ll see if there are any adjustments.
While I was at Mango, I, of course, played some cribbage. I played 6 games and only lost twice. They were close ones. I played against David (Jendy’s husband) and Christian. Losing one each to them and winning 2 each. I left there about 2:30 pm to head home and check to see if the money had hit the bank yet. It had. Then I had to transfer the money and prepare to go pick it up. Also, Nening and I went to Metro Supermarket after getting the money. That ended up draining me quite a bit.
At Super Metro I found out that they have a lot of a new label there. The label is “Raley’s”. I never heard of it before but they had a lot of the canned goods I’ve been looking for (stewed tomatoes, mixed vegetables and cream of celery among others). The also had a fiber cereal that I got. I want to check it all out to see how it is. I’ve especially been looking for stewed tomatoes so I bought 6 cans of them. I’ll find out tomorrow if they are good. I’ve already tried the cream of celery, it was okay, not great. My wife just tried the chili I bought. She said, “It has beans”, but it tastes good for her. Even my wife, a Filipina, knows that “real” chili does not have beans.
While at Metro I had to go sit down because my feet were hurting and I was feeling a bit over tired. I bought a bottle of water and found a place to sit in the shade. I felt better after that. I felt good enough to go back into Metro, where Nening was still waiting for them to finish ringing up our groceries. We spent more than I though. It didn’t look like much but I did get quite a few canned goods this time and I really don’t usually get too many of those. It was all the new stuff (Raley’s) that I wanted to try. Oh! Raley’s also had some dill pickle spears and hamburger dills. I got 1 jar each of those.
I had the trike driver stop on the way home and Nening got out to buy me another bottle of water. She got a very large bottle (1 liter) for less (P20) than the smaller one that I just bought about a 1/2 hour earlier (P25). I drank half a liter by the time we got home. I usually help Nening put the groceries away but I also developed a crap in my lower right leg so I just went to lay down and took a little nap. Of course, Nening said, no problem. She can put all the groceries away alone. She did too. I slept about an hour. I’m sure I’ll be going to bed early tonight though, I’m still tired. I’m not sure what’s going on with me right now but most likely I’ll be fine in the morning. It’s happened before, just not recently.
I was suppose to go to Mango tonight to pay my credit there, but I just didn’t feel like it. That’s not a problem though. I have to go to Mango tomorrow anyway. Saturday is our game day, plus we have someone coming to sell us smoked meats. Another Philippine expat, Tony, will be here selling smoked ham and smoked pastrami. I’ve been helping trying to let as many people as possible know he will be arriving tomorrow afternoon and will be at Mango. The cost is P1500 per kilo and I plan to buy about 2 kilos of each. He also, usually, has ribs, but not this trip. It will be his first time here for this. If it is as good as it looks, I hope it will not be his last.
It’s about 9:15 pm now. I’m sure I’ll be in bed by 10:00 pm. I hope not to wake up until at least 5 am, but I know I will end up making a trip or 2 to pee before 5 am. I’ll need to buy my medication tomorrow. I only have enough for in the morning. I hope my wife goes to sleep early also so the tv will not be on. Although, maybe tonight, it won’t matter about the tv. I think I will go to sleep pretty easily.
