I did not post a lot last August as it had been a busy month for me. Here's a peek at what happened the previous month.
My son turned 14 and we celebrated his birthday at Shakey's. My husband's parents and his sister's family joined us in celebrating his birthday as well as two of my son's friends and his friends' mothers.
My mom's birthday followed after 3 days. My sister and I treated her at Elias and she treated all of us after dinner at Magnolia Ice Cream House.
We picked a table outside the restaurant. What was interesting about this restaurant was that the waiters
used names in the novel Noli Me Tangere and El Filibisterismo like Crispin, Basilio, etc. That was actually the first time I realized that the restaurant's name came from Rizal's famous novel.
My high school friend came home from Singapore for a three-day vacation and she invited me and two other friends to a simple dinner at Chili's.
The next day I found myself craving for more Chilis so Ruel, my son, and my dad went to a branch to have an early dinner.
I did a lot of multi-tasking like eating out while checking students' themes.
And of course, I celebrated my birthday. Click here for more pictures on my special day.
The only problem about August was that I also spent a lot of time visiting my doctor. I'll tell you more about that next time.
Generally, despite all the trips to the doctor, house chores and all the stress in school, August was a happy and memorable month for me and my family.
