29/October/2015, Day 302. Thursday.
Old Grump survived another day of work. He is actually at peace with his job now, appreciating it for what it is, not bitter or angry over what it is not, and accepting of the fact that he could no longer have it at a moment's notice. Such is life in a corporate bureaucracy.
Kuya had another good day at school. He is doing well since we sent him to his new school, Montesorri of Macon. Private school ain't cheap around here! I really, really hope we are getting our money's worth. But then you see that YouTube video of the girl getting thrown on the floor by a POLICE OFFICER, and you never want your kid to go near a public school again!
We used to live in Columbia, SC, and Spring Valley High School is in a nice suburban area. I'm not sure what triggered all this nonsense, but besides the cop, (who clearly lost his self-control), there are several other people who are jerks in this event, such as the teacher and the administrator and maybe, (but most likely NOT), the student herself.
Dodong, Sweetie, and Lola are all doing well too. Actually a boring normalcy is not a bad thing, particularly now. With luck and God's Grace maybe Old Grump can hold on to his job for a couple more years, we'll pay off most of our debts, and we'll be in a much better financial position than we are at the moment. We'll see ..... who knows what challenges and rewards the future will bring?
P.S. - dinner was absolutely delicious, being baked tilapia Sweetie topped with a homemade mango salsa. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!
