Today’s shift at work was largely unremarkable and mostly unexciting. The only thing of note was that I had to take a process exam, which instead of being a quarterly thing is now (for some reason) done monthly. Oh well, got ten out of ten, so that’s one thing scratched off my worry list.
As I mentioned the other day, since my leave request was granted I’m basically free on my birthday… Which means that I’d be able to do all those stuff I mentioned yesterday. Mmm, time to set my alarm then — while I already wake up pretty early in the day, tatay likes those seaside walks really early (so when he swings by the wet market he gets stuff relatively fresh). Barbecue is definitely in the cards (whether it’s really pork, or chicken, remains to be seen), but with my sister involved (she and her husband might drop by) I think pasta is in the cards as well. Tatay also mentioned valenciana, but I really have to wonder if we have any sticky rice left over…
Ah, I’ll just worry about it tomorrow. For now, bed. Have to also be early enough for the morning mass. Got a lot to pray about, and be thankful for, after all.
P.S. Yes, it was my payday, and yes, I quickly put the cash (six thousand and two-hundred pesos, after taxes all told) into my savings. Hopefully it lasts longer than the end of the month.
