August


It is the 6th of August in the year 2014 at half past eleven in the morning. It is the first time in weeks since the sun has made an appearance. It is the monsoon season, after all.  But boy has the weather been so bleak and gloomy, it affected my mood. It also ruins my errands days so I've had to adjust or limit time spent outdoors lest I get caught in horrendous traffic just to make it safely home.

I tell you once you are stuck in 4 hours of traffic just to get home which is just a short distance from my point of origin - factor in the amount of time I had to stand in queue at the taxi stand - you feel like strangling the person who coined the term  "It is more fun in the Philippines"!!!

Aside from that, I've been saddled with joint aches and pains. Some which lasted a day, others several days but nothing that an ointment or a pain reliever won't heal. I guess it is part of aging gracefully. 

In conclusion, it only seemed like yesterday when it was the scorching month of May that befell us. Now it is the rainy month of August already. Wow time sure flies by so fast, I tell you!

I'm quite embarrassed to say how much I long for rain, especially since you're getting more than you need right now.

Oh man, joint pain? I'm currently under the care of a chiropractor, hopefully would get some relief. Tried PT but didn't really get relief. It is old age I believe :)

I understand your sentiments about wishing for rain. Even though I complain about it I also know it is vital for some areas to avoid drought.

Wow I guess I am lucky I can still tolerate the joint pains. It is not as severe yet as to hire a chiropractor. I hope you get some relief for them.
