Wow. I can't believe I have time to blog today!
The last few weeks had been so busy and exhausting.
One thing's for sure, though. I miss my no-work weekends.
I really, really miss them. I feel cheated when I go out on weekend mornings to go to work and my husband is still peacefully snoring on the bed.
It's so hard to feel excited to get out of the house when all I can hear before I step out of it is the silent whir of the air conditioning units from the other rooms. Sigh.
I've totally started a whole new routine here. When the rest of the world is dreading Mondays, I'm actually looking forward to them because Mondays are my rest days.
Well, technically not 'rest' day, because there are still so many things to do around the house. Like do the laundry, clean the room, buy groceries, catch a few winks, iron clothes, prepare a home-cooked meal for the hubby and just catch up on my favorite shows on my lappy.
It's like one day is not enough for a superwoman like me.
So last Monday, I decided I needed to take a break from all the wifey duties and just went to the city to take the hubby out on a date. We wanted to try the food at Applebee's in Somerset, so that's where we went right after I picked up Babykoy from work.
A beer and a raspberry iced tea to cool us down.
The cameraphobe strikes again!
Babykoy ordered this huge plate of Tilapia Parmesan (still no meat for him until after Holy Week) which really tasted delicious. The only thing he left on the plate was the slice of garlic bread. He said it tasted dry.
I was craving for some mean and greasy cheeseburger and fries. Their French Fries were really yummy and flavorful, however, their bacon cheeseburger left a lot to be desired. I wanted to ask for more cheese! It just tasted bland and oily. But I couldn't waste a big burger like that, so I had to finish it or the hubby would give me a good spanking. I had to make do with ketchup and some salt.
After dinner, we went to some stores to do a little bit of shopping. My mood lifted dramatically when I saw all the bags and tops on sale, but I stopped myself because I really needed to buy nice comfy shoes to wear to work. I can buy the bags next month. Wahaha.
Comfy shoes = happy feet!
And then we realized it was getting a bit late, so we dropped by this cute ice cream shop for some caramel hazelnut ice cream before taking the bus ride home.
It was a fun date night for both of us.
Such a stress reliever.
If only we can do this more often.
Til the next date!
