I was on sick leave twice last week and when I returned to work today, I was still feeling nauseous. Up to now, there's still this feeling that my stomach wants to expel whatever I ate throughout the day. It's just sheer willpower that's stopping me from running to the restroom to throw up my dinner.
On a happy note, my in-laws are back from their vacation in the US. I got my requested books (Eclipse and New Moon!) and the new People Puzzler! My mom-in-law also got me nifty pair of walking shoes and maternity clothes. Ninang Mike (Leo's Ninang and our Ninang at our wedding) also gave us a calendar from Shutterfly which featured our wedding photos. (I love the cover of the calendar. How come I didn't see those in the pictures. I must've missed it from all the hundreds of photos).
On another happier note, I FINALLY got my non-pro driver's license. Yahoo! Other than having the privelege of being able to drive a motor vehicle, I have another valid ID that has my married name. Yay!
During the review for our driver's exam, I was shocked to learn that the penalty for DUI is only P2,000!!! That's only 50 freaking dollars! However in the exam (which should be the same as the reviewer they gave us), it was indicated that the person caught could also be imprisoned, but the length of imprisonment was not indicated. Whoever is in charge of indicating the penalties should really change that. It's really pathetic. No wonder we have idiots being featured in the news everyday who gets into a car accident because they were drunk or high in drugs.
