So I’m giving up on dieting this month.
Even though money is kinda tight (I forgot to include my World Vision kids’ noche buena in my budget plan! Sorry guys that I sent it literally at the last minute!), thank God there is no shortage of food around here. Thank you Lord for the generous givers around us and for the occasional extra money to enjoy food!
So even though I won’t be losing weight anytime this year (and may even gain s’more kilos – – even my puns are food – related gah), I’m just thankful the there’s always food on the table despite the sky-high medical expenses haha.
I don’t remember the last time I bought Christmas gifts from a physical store.
Just kidding, I do. Back in late 2000s I think when online stores weren’t popular yet and it was still hard to buy something over the air without a credit card? Yeah those were the dark ages.
Now perhaps 98% of my gifts are all store-bought. I don’t want to deal with with long queues and traffic jams because I value my knees too much.
Still, that doesn’t mean I’m not experiencing the Christmas rush. I think a couple of times, just as I was checking out an item from an online store, someone beat me to it. And there were technical delays and coupon problems. My consuelo de bobo is that I was doing all of these at home in a comfy chair.
But I love the rush and the feeling of crossing off someone in your gift list. What a relief.
Official Catch Up Week
With the nature of my work, I barely have to go outside so even if many of my peers still live in the city, meeting them happens just once in a blue moon.
This week though is the week before Christmas week and catching up with peers is a must!
How was your weekend?
PS: Why are my pictures pixelated? They are not pixelated in my files…
