Mom's Unending Tasks....

It seems like our tasks as mothers are never ending :-)! Today, I thought I would be able to stay home and just sleep; but I was wrong, the moment the alarm clock went off was the beginning of my busy day. First I have to prepare my son for school, drop him off at the school bus stop and have breakfast. Then hubby told me we need to go to Kroger to meet his friend who is working part time. We need a stable job with good benefit that's why we went there to apply, but unfortunately, the HR and the other manager is on a vacation, so we need to go back on Monday. Well, before we went to Kroger, went to have a replacement for my SS card; and since the Asian Market is close, we decided to buy veggies and and fruits. By the time we are done, it was already lunch time. So went home for lunch. We thought we will be able to take a nap, but no because my son will be home anytime soon; so I ended waiting for him instead. Oh, boy I couldn't stop my eyes from closing, I was so sleepy and tired. At 2:45pm went and picked Jacob up, gave him some snacks and then we all went upstairs to take a nap. We both slept, but Jake. He just lay down there waiting for us to wake up. Amazing how long he can wait for us! Anyway, We ended our busy tiring day with grocery shopping at Walmart. Now I want to retire,just need to finish one thing and that is the opps I got from PPP just now!

What a Sleeping Position Can Say About a Couple?

First row:
1. - couples, where the woman depends on her man
2. - older man / very young girl couples
3. - after having an argument

Second row:
4. - after a long day at work.
5. - their relationship is in peril
6. - they trust each other.

After looking at these pictures, I don't think I agree with what they said. For me it is not even close to reality. Don't you think? I posted it here to stir some conversation. Oh, btw, got this one while searching for some images to be used in my posts :-)

fun quiz for myspace profile and blog


I am not really a fan of Astrology, I was just curious of what my Zodiac sign tells about me :-). Well, the result is I'll say, is that 75% true. I am not sexy and smart that's for sure! High appeal is absolutely not in me as well as a good kisser :-). Secretive sometimes, it depends on the person I am talking to. The one thing I need to work on hard is my temper; I get angry easily and that is not good. Most of all, I am not attractive physically, as you can see :-)!

Self Defense Products

As we read on the newspaper, everyday there are lots of women victims of assault, rape, murder, harassment and violation of all kinds. Lets us protect our loved ones and women we care about. There is a place where we can buy self defense products for women like pepper spray, stun guns, tasers and self defense alarms. I will definitely buy myself a lipstick pepper spray for protection and safety.

My Long Lost Friend!

Here is my long lost friend whom I have finally found through Facebook :-)!

Amazing how internet helps connect people online. I lost touch of my friends in the Philippines when I went overseas. We were still okay and have communications back when I was in Malaysia; but when I moved here in America to get married, that's when our communication started to fail. At first I thought it was because we are all married and have families of our own that need us and that we will get in touch again, but I was wrong. Last night when checking on my Facebook account, I found a long lost friend and I was so happy for that.

We got married with a hands me down entertainment center from a friend of him and that is what we have been using for five years. Now we don't have one, but a TV. Console.

Hypnosis

If you want to know more about How To Hypnotize Someone, you might want to attend a course that explain the whole thing about hypnosis.

Be Yourself!

Ever since I was a little kid, I didn't want to be me. I wanted to be Billie Widdleton and Billie Widdleton didn't even like me. I walked like he walked, I talked like he talked, and I signed up for the same high school he signed up for...which was when Billie changed. He began to hang around Herby Verderman. He walked like Herby and he talked like Herby. He mixed me all up! I began to walk like Billie Widdleton, walking and talking like Herby Venderman. And then it dawned on me that Herby Vanderman walked and talked like Joey Haverlin. And Joey walked and talked like Corky Sabinson. So here I am walking and talking like Billie Widdleton's imitation of Herby Vanderman's version of Joey Haverlin, trying to walk and talk like Corky Sabinson. And who do you think Corky Sabinson is always walking and talking like, of all people: Doepy Willington, that little pest who walks and talks like ME!
-Unknown Author-

I got this thought from a friend at church; and thought it is very nice thing to think about as we try to discover ourselves and our full potential to become what we want to be and most importantly, what God wants us to become. It is very important to be who we are and not what others want us to become. It is indeed important what God think of us, than what people would think of us.

Snow at Last!

Here are couple of shots I took this morning.
Finally, it snowed this morning! Yehey. Jacob was very happy about that. Unfortunately, the snow did not last long enough for him to play outside. My poor little man :-(. Weird because it did not get cold as we expected. Anyway, because of the snow, school were closed. I guess people here on this part of America freak out when snow comes as well as hail; why? Because some stores owners decided to not open and some open a couple of hours later. Back in Texas, people love snow and school doesn't close as long as it is not a heavy one.

Mortgage Leads

Aren't they adorable? Jacob is a friend to Brynnley mainly because they are the same age. She is the one in the middle!

Phone Cards and Calling Cards

It is indeed very hard being away from your loved; and all you can do is talk with them on the phone. It is very different when you hear their voice than writing emails or the old fashioned snail mail. So, I used Calling Cards to call them because it is cheaper than using landline phone service or phone company's calling plan, plus you have to pay connection fee. I decided to look online to see if I can find Phone Cards that are inexpensive and will not require a connection fee. I have found a website where they sell Prepaid Phone Card; not only they are cheap, the connection is very good. You will never find it in other companies. Plus other companies don't deliver what they promised especially regarding their real cost per minute and other hidden fees. I am glad to have found this website. I will definitely use this website when buying prepaid phonecards from now on.

More Lay Offs!

When I went online this morning, the first thing I checked was my emails at my yahoo account and read about the job lay off at Home Depot and just now while reading news at yahoo, found out that two more big company like Pfizer and Caterpillar are laying offs thousands of employees. What is going on? It is very scary. According to the news and I quote: “Looking ahead, economists predicted a net loss of at least 2 million jobs — possibly more — this year even if President Barack Obama's $825 billion package of increased government spending and tax cuts is enacted. Last year, the economy lost a net 2.6 million jobs, the most since 1945, though the labor force has grown significantly since then.” This even broke the record during the time of depression in 1945, can you believe that? This getting bad, very, very bad!

Sorting toys up...

This morning I woke up at 8am, went to the kitchen and found my husband busy sorting up Jake's toys. I am glad he did that because if I will be the one doing that I would probably have hard time picking which one to give away and keep. I am a sentimental person when it comes to things especially one that was give to us by our loved one. Mu husband on the other hand is the opposite of me which is good I think. :-)! Anyway, he is done sorting toys up and is now taking a short nap. Thanks, Honey :-)!

Friendship

Many people will walk in and out of your life.
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others
You can't live long enough to make them all
yourself.

Friends, you and me...
You brought another friend...
And then there were 3...
We started our group...
Our circle of friends...
And like that circle...
There is no beginning or end...

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
That is why it is called the present.

The Most Embarrassing Moments Ever!

I have an unforgettable embarrassing moments when I was in sixth grade, that to this day, I still remember it and wishing I have listened or followed the instructions to avoid such a shame to the school I represent. Anyhow, there is nothing I could do to change it; but surely have learned my lesson with that experienced.

Let’s face it – we’ve all had our share of embarrassing moments. Just be thankful that none of them were as humiliating (and hilarious!) as these:

"A mother was taking a shower when her 2 year old son came into the bathroom and wrapped himself in toilet paper. Although he made a mess, he looked adorable, so she ran for my camera and took a few shots. They came out so well that she had copies made and included one with each of their Christmas cards. Days later, a relative called about the picture, laughing hysterically, and suggesting that she take a closer look. Puzzled, the mother stared at the photo and was shocked to discover that in addition to her son, she had captured her reflection in the mirror wearing nothing but a camera!"

"A woman and her sister were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of nuts. As they were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if they needed any help. The woman replied, "No, I'm just looking at your nuts." The sister started to laugh hysterically, the boy grinned, and she turned beet red and walked away."

"A lady picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the checker, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for the entire store to hear, ‘PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE." That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word 'Tampax' for ‘THUMBTACKS.’ In a businesslike tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom: ‘DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER?’

An introvert went to bar and spots a pretty looking woman sitting on the stool. He mustered all his courage for long time, then timidly approached and asked her, "Ma’ am, would be OK if sit here and talk with you?" She was alert, suspecting this man, and responds by yelling, "No, I won't sleep with you tonight!" Customers in the bar started staring at them. The embarrassed guy quickly returns to his table dejected and ashamed. The young woman waits a little and then goes to the guy to apologize. With a smile on her face she says, "I am sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I am a college student in psychiatry and I am putting together a thesis as to how people react to embarrassing moments." The cunning guy now yells loudly, "What do you mean by $500?"

Herbs That Sweeten Your Breath

Last night, while rinsing my mouth/teeth last night, I can't help but feel the sting of mouthwash. So, I decided to buy a mouthwash with out alcohol in it. And so I did. But if you guys want something other than mouthwash, why don't you try setting down the Scope, and pick up a pinch of one of these herbs instead: parsley, basil, or cilantro.

They all contain the green plant pigment chlorophyll, which is a powerful breath freshener, writes James Duke, a PhD and botanist -- in his book, The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook. In addition to parsley, basil, and cilantro, Duke recommends these easy-to-find breath fresheners:
  • Dill: It’s also rich in chlorophyll. Chew the seeds, or make dill tea by adding the leaves or mashed seeds to boiling water.
  • Cardamom: It contains cineole, a potent antiseptic that kills bad-breath bacteria. You can chew the seeds and then spit them out.
  • Anise: The seeds of this licorice-flavored herb have been used for thousands of years to freshen breath. Boil the seeds in a cup of water. Strain, and then drink or use as a mouthwash.
  • Peppermint tea, a strong antiseptic, fights halitosis

Hoping for the Best!

It was very nice if you can go back to bed after taking you child to school or school bus stop. I have been lucky enough lately to have that chance. Today, as soon as I have finish my breakfast after the bus left, I headed back to bed and that was 9:00am. I woke up after 2 and a half hours of sleep :-). And that made me feel better! So, took a shower and got ready to pick my son up for their early released at school today. We went for a grocery shopping at Walmart. I can not believe it. I spent over a hundred bucks for very few items. My goodness! When will I going to spend less again and get more from my money? It is terrible! Well, what else can I do? But keep on buying things we need and not what we want. Hopefully, the economy will rise again from crisis and everything will go back the same way before the recession and war, especially that we have new President.

What a busy day!

It was a very busy day for us again. Hubby has a dentist appointment and he wanted me to be there. So I went with him, picked Jacob up at school and together we all went to the clinic. I was so bored waiting for hubby to have his teeth cleaned and checked. My son was with him the whole time in preparation for his own appointment next month. By the time he was done, it was lunch time already and we were all very hungry. We went at Shoney's for a buffet lunch. It was a nice lunch. After that, we all decided to go home instead of going to grocery store. Jacob took a nap, Matt was busy finding job online and I was busy with my blogs. I didn't get the chance to drop EC's and visit blogs. I will try to do that as soon as I am done giving my son a bath, read book and tuck him to bed. Oh, boy! What a busy day. Right now, I am having headache, but still need to work on opps before going to bed.

GPS

Summer last year, we visited my cousin and her family in Florida. It took us like 12 hours drive before we got there. We have missed the turn, that is why. My cousin then told me about GPS and how it has been very useful with her and her family. She encouraged us that we should buy one to avoid getting lost again. Although my husband doesn't want to buy one, I am still looking for one that fits our need especially me. I drive a lot especially when my husband is at work and I certainly could use one.

The Science of Yawning


Take a deep breath. The truth about yawning may surprise you. It surprised me as well. I have been wondering why is it that I keep yawning even though I just took a nap or have a complete sleep at night. This lead me to do a research on the internet and found the answer at Quality Health.com. Here are the reasons the science came up.

QualityHealth News Without fail, at approximately three o'clock Monday through Friday you have a bout with the stretching, open mouthed groan of a yawn. And although yawning is a casual part of our daily lives, few know how or why we do it. The average adult experiences about 20 yawns per day, yet the questions remain: Why do we yawn? What causes it? Read on to find out.

The Science
So what is a yawn? Yawning in an involuntary reflex in which the inhalation of air, the stretching of the eardrums, and lung expansion happen simultaneously. Pandiculation is the act of stretching and yawning at the same time. Other than the obvious physiological effects of yawning, the truth is that there is no definite reason as to why we do it. There are, however, many theories:

  • Lack of oxygen. The most common theory on yawning is to replace an oxygen deficiency in the blood. When we're bored or tired, we don't breathe as deeply as we should. So, the big gasp of air your experience while yawning forces more oxygen into the blood stream and moves carbon dioxide out.

  • Stretching the lungs. Another theory is that yawning stretches your lungs in order to feel more awake. The deep breath of air forces your lungs to expand and your heart rate to rise. In fact, your heart rate can rise as much as 30 percent during a yawn. The combination of increased lung capacity and heart rate may make you feel more awake.

  • Cooling the brain. Our brains are not unlike computers. The cooler it is the more efficient it works. The deep breath of air is said to cool an overheated brain. The brain is thought to heat up when sleep deprived or when the body is tired. Yawning counteracts those effects.

  • The contagious yawn. You've heard the rumor: yawns are contagious. Is there any truth to this claim? In part, yes. Fifty-five percent of people will yawn within five minutes of seeing another person yawn. A researcher at the University of Leeds in Britain believes it has to do with humans' innate empathy for "behavioral and physiological state." This theory debunks the notion that yawning in a meeting is somehow rude.

Regardless of the cause, the act of yawning is a natural part of our lives and is here to stay. Although the theories of why we yawn are disputed between sleep experts, psychologists and neighbors alike, one thing cannot be debated-the comforting feeling of a complete breath of fresh air coupled with a satisfying, full body stretch.
