30/October/2015, Day 303. Friday.
Old Grump survived another day at work. Hooray! With the passing of another week, he only needs to survive 101 more weeks and he'll be 100% vested in his 401k.
Kuya took bags of candy to school for all his classmates. Unbelievably he was the ONLY one in his class to bring treats today. His teacher was happy that he did this, and the other kids were VERY HAPPY. I wonder what's up with the other parents? Don't they realize it's friggin' Halloween!! Maybe Montessori appeals to hippy types, and they're so busy snorting tofu they "forgot" about this holiday?
Dodong continues to grow, both in size and curiosity. Recently he has become fascinated with the coils and wires on the back of the refrigerator. Oh brother! We already have chairs and end-tables moved in front of most of the drawers and cabinets; now we have to worry about him reaching behind the 'fridge and potentially electrocuting himself. Thank God Lola can help us watch him!
Grump had a most wonderful lunch today, some of the leftover baked tilapia with mango salsa. If I can get the recipe for the salsa I'll post it, because it is easy to make and delicious. I believe it only has four ingredients, mangoes, cilantro, red bell peppers, and lime juice.
After work, despite Grump's tiredness and inevitably associated grumpiness, we went shopping. We went to Belk's at the Riverside Mall and bought Sweetie a pair of walking shoes for about $60.00, (a good deal, according to Grump), and some eyeliner and facial powder for about $50.00, (too expensive, according to Grump). All this went on the Belk credit card, so once again we are spending money we don't really have. Oh well, that is the "American way", after all!
