Weekends are full of surprises. This is especially true if it’s a long weekend. The hubby and I were already in Bacoor as early as Thursday night. Of course, we were excited over this 3-day break! Despite the continued heavy rains coupled with strong winds, the hubby and I were able to go out to do some errands, work on his thesis, and visit the wake of a friend’s mother.
On Thursday night, I made some ice cream using ripe avocados from my FIL’s own tree. It turned out to be so good for a dessert/snack that leaving some for our family in Manila was a hard thing to do. (Don’t worry, we ended up leaving some for them in the name of love.) Haha.
Our Friday was spent at home except for the time when we braved the heavy rains to go to the wake of a friend’s mother at Manila Memorial Park – Dasmariñas and when we went back to CBTL at Starmall Prima to work on the hubby’s thesis. The best thing about Friday? Less cooking for me! I just prepared breakfast in the morning and the rest of our meals were fastfood.
On Saturday, we just made a quick trip to the wet market to buy fresh produce and spent the rest of the day at home again. We suddenly got hungry when midnight came so we drove to the nearest McDonald’s for some burger and (shake shake) fries. Midnight hunger solved!
We went back to Manila on Sunday afternoon after getting a call from the hubby’s family informing us that my MIL had a high grade fever and was having some difficulty breathing so she wanted herself to be checked ASAP. We arrived at my in-laws’ place at past 1PM, unloaded our things from the car, and drove to Makati Medical Center immediately. Fortunately, after all the lab tests’ results came out, she was diagnosed as having just a bad case of flu (that’s why taking an anti-flu vaccine is a must!) and was just given a drug prescription. Thank God!
Despite the unexpected early return to Manila, our long weekend was quite sulit. We had lots of rest and quiet time. Now, I can’t wait for the coming long weekend!
How did your long weekend go, friends? I hope you had lots of rest and quiet time, too! 🙂
