20/January/2015, Day 020. Tuesday.
Another workday is gone. When he was younger, Grump used to fantasize about retiring once he turned 40, or 50, or .....
Those days are long gone! Grump is closing in on 60 years old, and retirement seems as far away as ever. I guess that's what happens when you have kids.
Kuya was back in school today, which made him happy. Even though he is still in kindergarten, they are teaching him to read very simple words.
Have you noticed that even though the price of oil, and therefore gasoline, is way, way down, food prices seem as high as ever? Sweetie and Grump went shopping tonight for a few items, (mostly baby food for Dodong), and while it seems that they hardly bought anything, the total price came to over $100.00 ! Grump remembers when $100.00 could buy you a whole shopping cart full of food, not just a few odds and ends.
Sweetie made a fish soup tonight for herself and Lola. It was a Filipino style fish soup, with bones and skin included. Despite this, Grump was able to eat a small bowlful, and he actually liked it!
