Moe n I are back home. Yayyy!
Our plane touched down about five hours ago. Dad picked us up at Dulles, as pre-arranged, with my brother-in-law to help carry and stuff. He didn't do much tho, except order the skycap around :))
Anyway, we got to the house, where ma and my sis had an enormous meal waiting. Not fancy, but always tastey. It was sorta like a mini-party. It was unusual, to say the least, that my sis and her husband were in town, and apparently they've been here since Wednesday. "House-sitting," she sez. Like I didn't know her... heeheee. Snooping, more like it. :))
Anyway, during dinner, we gave everyone their pasalubong. We gave Dad n Marvin several light summer shirts as well as some paperweights made from volcanic rock from that mountain that exploded about twenty years ago, and ma and sis got one suitcase worth of clothes as well as three pairs apiece of some nice shoes from a town called Marikina. It was worth it to see my sister's jaw drop, heehee, but I told em this was a one-time thing.
We got out one of the packages of chocolate we bought. It's called "Tablea" and it comes in a tube of little round chocolate balls the size of golf balls, and what you do is you take three or four of these golf balls and drop em in boiling water, wait a while, and voila! Instant, delicious hot chocolate from Manila! Went real well with the spaghetti and toasted italian bread ma cooked up.
Anyway, we told some stories (actually, it was mostly Moe), showed some pictures and that was it. My sister and brother-in-law went with my folks to their house (over our protests), but they insisted so we could rest up.
Anyway, we're in the big bed, Moe's snoring, and I'm typing this up, still wide awake (it's still 8am in my head).
Guess I'll putter around the house a while, get used to things again, and try and get sleepy.
It's good to be home!
