I needed to return to the clinic, for the fifth time since late June. I am proud to remain an Overseas Filipino Worker, earning currency that is rapidly diminishing in value. I am working as hard as I have for 16% less compensation compared to 18 months ago. At the airport lounge, I met the People's Champion, on his way to Los Angeles to shoot a commercial for Nike.
The flight to San Francisco was not bad, it was the 8 hour wait for our connection to Dallas that got me weary. From Dallas, we took a "puddle-jumper" to Amarillo where "Dr. Paul" was waiting. What would normally take us 2 hours was extended to 4 hours because of the poor road conditions (it snowed the day after Thanksgiving). Door to door, from Quezon City to Guymon, took 34 hours. This is how our backyard looked after the first dusting.
The long Thanksgiving holiday just ended and today is bound to be a busy one.
