Sledding in New Mexico

We went sledding while were at NM spending Christmas with my in-laws; we had fun especially my son who was brave enough to sled by himself. I, on the other hand just took pictures and video of them for it was very cold. Anyway, here are a couple of video taken when Jacob was sledding.

Knitting Is A Way To Share Love

Guest post from: Denver Stephens

I don't think I could say enough about the wonders of knitting. I taught myself to knit many many years ago and have not forgotten the pleasure it brought. Although I have not knitted anything at all for the last few years, I know that I could pick it up again, anytime I wished. The thing about knitting is that it is kind of like riding a bike, you just don't forget how to do it.

In fact, I think I am going to go dig out my knitting needles and find some yarn that has been hiding for several years and hone my skills again while I'm watching satellite TV from tonight. That's the way I learned it to knit to begin with, just sitting in front of the television. I felt like that sometimes I was wasting my time idly watching the tube, so I began to knit. This turned into a wonderful hobby and allowed me to create something beautiful at the same time.

What I found as I learned to knit was that family and friends admired what I had created so much that I was knitting things to give away as gifts at Christmas time. I still see some of those creations in the homes of the people I care about. Knitting provided me a way of sharing my love.

Christmas Shopping with My Girls

Thanks for the post, Vernon Lowe

My girls are my favorite people to go Christmas shopping with because we like to shop the same way. We don't care about fancy stores or going to the mall. Our objective when shopping for Christmas is to get the best deal. It takes a lot of time to shop the way we do because you have to look carefully if you want to find the best bargains.

We can spend three or four hours at the same store. When we are gone from home on our shopping expeditions, we always make sure to set our home security alarm from before we leave to go Christmas shopping. This way we won't have to worry about anything and can concentrate on finding the good deals.

Last week we went shopping at Big Lots. Big Lots is one of our favorite places to find bargains because they specialize in closeout items from other stores. We love stores like Big Lots because they have so many different types of items available. You can find furniture, clothing, home decor items, toys and even video games.

We don't shop for certain items; we make a list of who needs a gift. This helps us be flexible and open to whatever good deals we might find. Try Big Lots to get bargains when you shop for Christmas.

The First Snow Of The Winter Has Arrived

I appreciate the guest post, Emerson Moses

December 4th, 2010 will go down in history as the first snow fall to occur in my town and area. Though it was only between a dusting to an inch in some places, it did scatter the ground, covered vehicles, and covered rooftops. The weather is still cold and it is giving us a look at what forecasters are saying could be another cold and snowy winter here in Eastern Virginia.

There is still a little snow on the ground from last night and today I will sit back and turn on my Satellite TV Sports Packages and watch football games. My anticipation for the first snow is very different than it was from my younger days. When I was younger, I could not wait for that first snow. It meant no school and being able to go outside and have fun. These days, it is cold weather and sitting back and looking at the beauty of the snow.

It seemed like it would never snow here but over the past decade or so, every winter it snows here. Last winter was especially brutal and went down as one of the snowiest on record. Though the first snow of the year has arrived, I really don't expect it to snow as much as it did last year.

Simple Yet Memorable

In two years time, my son would be baptized and he is already excited about it. This would be one of the milestones of his/our lives and I want to make sure that it would be memorable. When he was blessed or christened, he was only six months old. We didn't think of it that much until it was over. We regretted not buying christening gifts daughter/son :-(. Now, we are already planning for his baptism. Hubby and I decided to make this occasion simple, yet memorable for us all. In fact, last week...hubby and son attended Sam's baptism at church and they said it was very spiritual and simple. People came to witness this event and were all edified.

Friday Fill Ins we go!

1. What in the world is wrong with you?

2. I see to it that my hubby and son are well fed.

3. Go away cold weather and don't come back till summer.

4. Christmas cards have been sent and so as the gifts for my family back home.

5. I keep all my doctor's advice with regards to my health condition.

6. You (Jacob) will abide by our house rules whether you like it or not.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleeping early though it's not possible here in the hospital, tomorrow my plans include getting more rest and see my son hopefully and Sunday, I want to go home if my health permits me.

Zappos, My New Fave Online Store

I have been looking for a nice looking big tote I could use when I go to church. I want something that is durable, quality made, simple and yet fashionable. Price is not a problem to me as long as it will last longer. I learned the hard way that expensive brand name and designer stuffs are way better than the cheaper one. And so I went online at Zappos and found the tote I have been looking for. This would be the gift I will give to myself this Christmas (hope my savings would be enough), lol. If not, I can still save it for my birthday.

I love shopping online; and when it comes to shoes and purses, I would never go anywhere but at Zappos. You should check this site out for you will find great stuffs from shoes, clothing, bags and handbags, housewares, watches,and more...they've got you covered. Two more great things about this online store is that the shipping is free both ways and their return policy is up to 365 days; that is one year! Isn't it amazing? It isn't too late yet to shop for Christmas gifts, go to their shop online now and shop! You will be glad you did!

The Conservative Me

If there is one person who will never lingerie, that person would be me. In fact my friends gave me a lingerie once as a wedding present and to this day I still haven't wore it. I don't know why, but I never like it. Maybe because I am a very conservative person who want simple and modest clothing. But that doesn't mean that I would never buy one. I have an Aunt who loves sexy clothes and lingerie. She would be very happy if I give her a piece or two of lingerie as a Christmas present. She lives overseas, but I wouldn't mind sending it through Fed Ex.

A Wrinkle Cream for my Mom

Finding the best wrinkle cream is like looking for a needle on the haystack. It is there but not easy to find. Good thing there's prototype 37 c reviews where you can read reviews about how effective and safe the prototypye 37 is. Now, finding the right wrinkle cream for you has made easier. I would know what to get once I am ready to treat my wrinkles to be someday. For now, I am getting this wrinkle cream for my mother as a Christmas present. I am pretty sure she would be glad for she wanted to hide the unsightly wrinkles for a long time.

My Kind of Handy Man

Last month our van was making a noise coming from the back tire. We drove and drove it but couldn't figured out what the caused was. Sometimes when we turn left the noise is there and sometimes it doesn't make any squeaky noise at all. Finally, my husband decided to take it to the auto repair shop where rv repairs service is available or done, too! Anyway, before doing that, he took a look to see if he he can fix the problem or not. Sure enough he was able to fix the problem by taking a big rock out. Now, how the rock got inside the tire, we don't have any idea. Good thing my hubby is a handyman who can fix almost everything around the house, thus saving us a lot of bucks

Karate Tournament and Exam

At my last post, I have mentioned about Jake's coming karate tournament. He did a great a great job, by the way. In fact, he was awarded two medals: 1 for executing cool punches on kicking and the other 1 for great kicks. Way to go my son ;-); we are so proud of you! This Saturday, he would take a karate test and hopefully he'd pass it so he could have a new belt (orange). We are all excited. I pray that I would be discharged from hospital to morrow to I can go with him for his test. Good luck my little karate kid! We love you so much!

Ready for the Tournament

My son is very into Karate. He loves going to his Karate lessons and is learning a lot of movements. Who would have thought that he would enjoy Taekwando? My only purpose why I enrolled him was just so he could learn respect, self discipline, focus, and to depend himself from those who will hurt him such as bullies and gangsters.

Last week, Jake instructor told us that he is ready for the tournament which would take place tomorrow. He said that Jacob might get a medal or even some kind of sports trophies for competing. We got so excited upon hearing that. And so, I immediately signed him up for the tournament as well as the testing where he would get a new (orange) belt the following Saturday.

Carpet Cleaning Holiday Break

Having a child in the house is making sure that you make your home clean and safe all the time. This is the reason why I got myself busy looking for organic carpet cleaner Austin. I have heard good word that the best carpet cleaning ingredient sellers and cleaners are in Austin.

After viewing several carpet cleaner prices Austin, I got myself thinking twice. Should I buy my own carpet cleaning materials and follow the furniture cleaning tips they gave or should I hire carpet cleaning specialist Austin and save a lot of time doing hard work??

Anyway, since this is the time to be jolly, I decided to give myself a break. I think I should try hiring some carpet cleaners!!! So now, I think I should try checking carpet cleaning pricing Austin to get my budget approved by my husband. LOL!!

So, how about you? Are you giving yourself a holiday break from carpet cleaning??

Stylish and Fashionable Medical uniforms

I always wanted to be a nurse just like my Aunt and cousins, but due to poverty, I wasn't able to pursue my dream profession instead I ended taking a computer programming which is now obsolete by the way. I just wished I could pursue my studies and be a nurse someday. It isn't to late after all. Anyway, speaking of nursing course or being a nurse, the last time I spoke with my Aunt, she was asked me to find her a nice and fashionable but cheap nurse uniform. Knowing her, she would never wear a scrubs if it is not a 100% cotton. At Blue Sky Scrubs, they sell these medical uniforms; I am sure they also have an all cotton lab coats.

The last time I browse their website, I noticed that they also carry dental assistant uniforms that are very nice and affordable. I wonder whether the dental assistance at our dentist's office gets her uniforms at Blue Sky Scrubs. I really like her uniform for it looks very stylish and comfortable. Hmm, now I get an idea what to give to the nurses and dental assistance who take care of us and our teeth.

Interesting Weight Loss Product

I have been busy doing online tasks ever since I started blogging. I spend most of my free time surfing the net, and reading interesting articles from child care, weight loss stuffs, and all. With all the things I've read lately, the most interesting one was about the best diet pills for women. Doesn't this one sounds interesting to you? A diet pill designed especially for women has awaken my curiosity and made me feel like trying to see if this really works. The only way to find out is that let my hubby try it! If it didn't work for him, them it should work for Seriously, I would really like to try it, maybe this is the diet pill I have been searching for.

Everyone Is Busy Shopping

While many people are already busy shopping for Christmas gifts, other are also busy looking for diet pills that works. These people are getting ready for the many foods they will eat during Holiday season. I'll say, good for them. One of the many diet pills that are effective I heard are the phentermine diet pills. This pill can help you lose weight while enjoying your favorite foods serve only during Christmas and New Year. But for us who love foods, this will be useful for us all year long. Too bad, hubby doesn't believe on any diet pills at all otherwise he would try one of the diet pills available in the market today.

Unsightly Dark Circles

I haven't been getting a lot of sleep lately and I am so worried about it. It isn't good for my health as well as my body. I have no idea why sleep stopped visiting me lately. As a result, my eyes look fluffy. I hate it when I am in front of the mirror because all I see are dark circles under my eyes. Tired of those eye bags, I went online and read all about it on Thank goodness, I learned something that will treat those unsightly dark circles. So glad for the internet, I get answers for health questions I had that only doctors can answer. Now, I don't have to pay a co pay for some info, for they are right on the tip of my fingers :-).

Rules On School Days

On the way home from Jacob's karate lesson today, he asked me if he can play at his friend/classmate, Aaron. I reminded him that school days are not yet over....meaning no playing at his friend's or our house till weekend. He insisted that tomorrow would not be school. In that case, I asked him if he wanted to go to school tomorrow (Friday), and he said 'yes'. Anyhow, that is one rule he needs to follow aside from no video games, just an hour of tv, read books, practice writing and homework only during school days. He also need to be in bed by 8pm...and up by 6:40am. So far, these rules work for us. Sounds like a lot for a six year old boy, but it really isn't bad at all. So before I look for the best supplements for building muscle, I let him fall asleep first before I finish my other online tasks. Thank goodness, my son always fall asleep in less than 5 minutes every night. Had we not consistent with our rules and schedules, Jacob would be having trouble sleeping early.

Address Labels and Stationary

Every time we move to a new place, I make sure that we don't run out of address labels and stationary. And so, after a month or two, I order these things online to avoid writing return address on the envelop when I send mails, pay bills through mail and etc... Since Christmas is just around the corner, it is a family tradition that we write newsletter to our loved ones, friends and families to keep each other up to date of our whereabouts. Yes, I use stationary to make he newsletter look appealing and interesting as well. Having a full color printing labels and stationary are very important to me; I like that the newsletter to look presentable, same thing I do when it comes to postcards and photos. Do you know that stationary can be a great gift, too!

I Love Coupons!

This afternoon, my friend and I went to an outlet mall close to us. Our purposed is to check for gifts we can give to our loved ones as well as for the white elephant we will bring at Filipino Christmas party next month. Somehow, we managed to buy some gifts for the children we know; it was very comforting to know that I only need to worry now for my in-law's gifts. I got an idea on what to give them, just need hear what hubby has to say about them. Anyway, when I check the receipts inside the shopping bags, I noticed some coupons I can use next time I do some shopping again. Imagine savings 10 bucks next time, for me, it is a lot! However, when it comes to coupon, coupons is also giving their customers greater deals when you use them. Who says that doesn't offer coupons? Tell me and I will show them that they are so wrong!

My Little Bookworm

I love reading; even when I was young I read a lot from informative magazines to Newspapers. I've learned a lot from reading. Through reading, I learned that reading to your baby while he/she's still in your belly encourages her/him to read and love books. and so, when I was pregnant with my son, I read a lot of children's book. to him. Now, I reaped the fruit of my labors; he loves book as well as reading. He wouldn't sleep without me reading to him, and sometimes he reads to me, too! Jake's fave books are Dr. Seuss books particularly the one with a title "Are you my mother"? In fact, last week he presented a book report and did well. And we are so proud of him.

Huge Savings at

Call me crazy, but I do shop on Cyber Monday. Try doing it and you will never say that word ever again. Yup, getting up as early as five in the morning and falling in line in front of the stores doesn't hurt me at all. In fact, I love it for it saves me lots of money by purchasing great deals on items I would not normally buy because they are so expensive. Nowadays, shopping on Cyber Monday is even easier for I don't have to wake up early; at, I can shop as much as I want to in the comfort of my own home. Just few minutes ago, as I was browsing into their website, I couldn't help but be glad. Visit their site and you'll know why I am saying this. Imagine the huge savings you will get from buying gifts for Christmas online. A 70% discount is amazing! Now, I know where to go when Cyber Monday comes. See you there, guys!

In Need of Opiate Detox?

Many people became dependent to pain killers after they are released from the hospital. They couldn't take the pain anymore and so they rely on pain killers to ease the pain temporary. I can't blame them for I, myself have been to pain medications after I had my c-section, abdominal surgery, and kidney transplant. Thanks to my Bishop who warmed me of side effects that a pain killers give you. If you are one of those people who wanted to withdraw from opiate, them you should contact a facility that can help you ease the process. I read testimonies of those who have gone to opiate detox and everyone of them say the same thing 'they are happy and satisfied'. Who knows you might say the same thing after it.

A Velo Bind at Our Home Office

Everyday, my son amazes me with the things he is learning at school as a first grader. They do many things at school compared to when I was still on first grade many years ago. He makes book, present a book talk, advanced Math and so forth and so on. At the age of five, he already know how to read and write his full name. I didn't learn those things till I was eight year old! Amazing how much my son can do now. Talking about making book, I wished we have a Velo binding machine so my son can use it when he makes book for me and Daddy. A Velo Bind is great for offices, home offices as well as in schools. I like that the spines come in a variety of sizes and colors for great presentation projects, school projects and more.

I Do Take Melatonin

Back in he Philippines when I was still single, I used to work night shift for 12 hours. I don't know how I did it, but I managed to do my job for almost six months. My world those days revolves around work and going home to get some sleep. I had no time to rest and enjoy life. It was like a night mare. After I quit, I suffered from insomnia where I can no longer sleep during the night. When I heard about a sleeping pill called melatonin, I immediately ran to the pharmacy and bought myself some. Boy, it did help me fall asleep. Thanks to a friend who recommended it to me. I will definitely take some of melatonin again when we visit my family next year because of the time zone difference.The last time I took this pill was last year when I paid my last respect to grandma who passed away due to health problems.

It Depends!

Have you asked this questions 'are diet pills safe'? If so, then you are not alone; my husband is one of the many people who are curious when it comes to diet pills. Because of that he can't bring himself to trying it. I don't blame him for that. If you noticed, there are a lot of them and are available in the market today. Some people say that diet pills are safe ad some don't. The only reasons they can prove it is by trying it themselves or not at all, lol. Funny but true. If I have enough money to buy one, I would definitely give diet pills a try. I want and need to lose weight, to you know! With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming a diet pills can help me with my goal. Hope I can drag my husband into it, too, lol.

Battle of the Cranberry Sauces

Guest post written by Morgan Peters

It seems that every year after my extended family figures out who's house we're going to meet at to have our huge extended family Thanksgiving lunch together, then we have to fight and deal with second big Thanksgiving question together, what kind of cranberry sauce we're all going to have.

We corresponded through email to figure out where we were going to meet and after we figured that out, I hit reply to all and asked about the cranberry sauce. When I was doing that I was just surfing through the internet too and came across this site I think that my sister had told me about this internet company and said that she had it, so I decided to sign us up for it at home.

When it comes to cranberry sauce, I know that my kids will only eat the stuff out of the can because they won't believe me when I say that any of the other stuff is actually cranberry sauce. So I know that we'll have to have some of that to make them happy.

Miss Wearing Small Size Clothing

Christmas time is fast approaching and that means it's time to make myself busy buying gifts for my in laws and family. I don't know about you guys, but this is one of the stressful time of the year for me. Imagine buying gifts for someone who has everything. Gift card would be great, but we have been doing that for the past years. I think this time, they would be very glad if they get something that is wrapped or inside a nice box. And so, yesterday together with my friends, We went to the mall and shop for gifts. As I browse at those petite clothing section of the department store, I couldn't but think of those small size clothes in my closet. If only they can talk, they would say "when are you going to wear us again?" Yup, I gained weight when I got married and never lose those unwanted fats yet. It's been years, but I don't know what else to do? I really want to wear those petite clothes I have been saving for years. I guess they need to go to Goodwill so they can be of use. I will miss them, but who cares...unless I lose weight.

Georgia Aquarium: Behind The Scenes

Contribution by Odis Chan

My sons and I are once again planning a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. This time we will be taking the “Behind the Scenes Tour” which is a great tour offering insight into the inner workings of the largest aquarium on the planet. The interesting about this tour is that it allows us a view from the top of the tanks, instead of the usual view from the bottom. Hopefully some of the larger fish (one tank has a great white) will swim up for a closer look. The coral reef exhibit should also be interesting. While I know they are old enough to understand what a coral reef is, I don't know that they fully appreciate the diversity of life that lives there. They will also be involved with the aquarium staff as they prepare the food and discuss the nutritional needs of the different fish. Since Atlanta is a 45 minute drive from our home, I always take the time to set our home security alarm from My kids may not understand the biodiversity of a coral reef, they do understand face book. I tell them not to post these things, but sometimes their excitement overrules me. As always, the penguins will probably be our favorite exhibit no matter how many sharks we see. Will remain true when they are teenagers? Time will tell.

Fun Costumes For Halloween

The Author of this post is Velma Baird

Grabbing candy for Halloween is definitely one of my favorite pastimes. As a kid, I loved to go trick or treating and gather up all the latest in candy goodness. Nowadays I take my children out to experience what to me is only a memory. We love heading out for the hunt and finding all kinds of new candy we didn't even know existed before we got out there going door to door.

The folks that answer the door are as friendly as ever, always making Halloween special for the parents and children that share it together. We hand out candy too if we get home in time, but most of the time we're too busy enjoying another tradition: watching a scary movie on cannonsatellite TV after returning home from a hard night's trick or treating.

The night of Halloween is something special to my family and me. We share in every part of the special occasion together, enjoying the fun of the walk door to door, combined with the eeriness of the night itself. There is no other holiday that is quite as unique as Halloween is, with all its candy treasures and celebrations of all things we'd never think to celebrate otherwise.

I love Halloween, trick or treating and all, and I'm glad that my family and I can enjoy the tradition together.

Sam Houston National Forest - Best Place for Camping & Hiking

Thanks for the article from Alfred Maynard

Sam Houston national park is one of four National Forests located in Texas; with around 50 miles north of Houston, this forest contains 163, 037 acres between Huntsville, Conroe, Cleveland and Richards in Texas. During fourth or July, I had gone camping to Sam Houston Forest with six friends; it was a fun-filled camping experience. Before leaving for the camping all of us had set the security alarm system (ADT ALARM pricing) in the house for ensuring safety.

We enjoyed the Lone Star Hiking Trail extended over 128 miles through the Sam Houston National Forest; while camping we did fishing at Lake Conroe and experienced a wonderful hiking trail at this natural trail with tapered sandy paths through the forest with some grassy stretches. We also spotted many white-tailed deer, turkey, quail, dove, rabbits, foxes, and bobcats in these piney woods. The park has three developed campgrounds; these are Cagle, Double Lake and also Stubble-field recreation areas. In case of double lake, a prior reservation is applicable and also based upon a first-come, first-served basis. Both the Cagle and Stubble-field campsites are available only based on a first-come, first-served and offer campsites with lantern posts and picnic areas with dinner tables. Campers have options to go biking, hiking and also boating at Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston. Several water sports are also available for the campers and outsiders. This particular camping was very much exciting and enjoyable for all of us.

Family Night at Jake's School

About two months ago, my son's school prepared fun activity for parents and children. The kids didn't know where to go for there were lots of room activities to enjoy. Anyway, we had free dinner, too! A pizza and soda. This is the day where we met the Filipino family who lives in the same neighborhood. Their son is my son's classmate and friend...what a coincidence? We now have a family friend nearby, yay!

He was playing basketball here, unfortunately, the ring was too high for him.
At the computer room playing educational games (PBS Kids).
Making play dough and being messy with friend and classmate, Aaron.

In Need of Tree Service?

Our first house was built in the 1940's in a well established neighborhood in the city of Richardson. It was old but we liked it so much especially that we made it look like a model house when you get inside. We did extensive renovation that costs us more than we thought. Unfortunately, we sold it when we moved to Virginia three years ago. for tree service and they are also satisfied with services they offer. Since NC is rich in vegetation, tree services can be found everywhere. There's the

Talking about old house, the trees in front as well as in the backyard were old and big; they gave us lot of shades during summer time. My husband couldn't cut the branches that laid down and so we hire a tree service company to help remove the branches. They did a good job and the fee is very affordable. In Durham where my brother in-law and his family lies, they hire Durham tree service for tree service and they were also satisfied with services they offer. Since NC is rich in vegetation, tree services can be found everywhere. There's the Raleigh tree service and also the tree service Cary NC. So whether you live in Durham, Cary or Raleigh, tree services are there to help you.

Home Remedy for Acne

One of the worst enemy of teenagers is skin problem. For some reason it affects many youth and there is nothing they can do about it than using acne products. This skin care product is not cheap, I tell you and not all teenagers can afford to buy them. I bet they wished there is a home remedy for acne so that they can avail of it anytime they need some. I suffered an acne myself, but not when I was a teenager, instead after I had a kidney transplant. My doctor told me that it is normal that is why he prescribed me with an acne medicine and it did help. The acne on my back and chest disappear in just two weeks! Amazing, isn't it?For the youth sakes, I am wishing the same thing.

Jake's Fave Filipino Dish

One night, my son asked me to cook this dish (Menudo) for dinner. Since almost all of the ingredients are available, I cooked some for him. He ate a lot and went to bed full. I love the sweet potato in there instead of potato; it is healthier anyway. The picture wasn't good, but the food was :-). Again, we cannot judge the book by its cover...applies to this one, too!

Want some? Come dig in!

Water that is Good for Our Colon

About a month ago, I met a Filipino who lives in the same neighborhood where we now live. She is married to a Filipino and have a son who happened to be a classmate of my son. And that is the reason why we met. Our families have attended a school activity one time and she was the one who recognized me as Pinay....and that was the beginning of our friendship. Every once in awhile we go to each other houses and cook some Filipino foods. I tell you, she is a good cook and I love her dishes. One day while visiting her, I noticed a small machine sitting on her counter top. I asked her what that thing was and she said that it was a water purifier and that is not an ordinary purifier for the water it purifies can help clean a colon and it taste good, too! The water purifier is a little bit pricey, but can help cleanse colon; isn't it great or what? Talking about colon, the said water purifier cleans up water and that why I called the water a natural colon cleansers. We all agreed for it helped cleans their colons. Since it is expensive, we will need to save some bucks so we can buy one for ourselves. $2000 is worth spending especially if this thing will help our bodies clean and healthy...don't you think?

Buying Christmas Gifts Made Easier

Thanks to the modern technology like internet. Shopping has never been easier. Buying Christmas gifts online is even easier for me. I can shop in the comfort of my own home. I don't need to get dress and drive at the mall, thus saving me time, energy and gas. Awesome, isn't it. Before we know it, Christmas is here. Therefore, I need to start shopping for Christmas gifts online now for my family in the Philippines, otherwise it might get there after Christmas. This also reminds me to get birthday gifts for my father and father in-law because their birthdays fall on the month of Christmas.

She Needs Acne Treatment

I just met a new Filipino friend at my son's school a month ago. Finally, my prayers of meeting a fellow Pinay was answered. Now, I have someone I can talk to and be with when I am bored and homesicked. Believe it or not, she was also praying the same for the thing. Yes, our prayers have been heard. And I thanked God for that. Having a friend is one thing I always wanted ever since I came here in United States. It isn't easy to live in a foreign country, but having a friend made life easier. I really like her for she is very nice and very open, just like me. We have a lot of things in common and we clicked instantly. The only thing I am afraid to tell her is the concern I have with her acne. I would like to suggest that she treat it with some kind of acne products. I actually have an extra medication for acne and would like to give it to her, but I am worried she might get offended. I don't have any idea how to tell her in a way she wouldn't feel bad. Oh well, I think I need to pray for it.

I Need Chromium Supplements

I got messages from one company I write posts for telling me that if I am one of those loggers who don't finish the tasks assigned to them, that their profile would be deactivated. Though I am not one of them, the messages reminded me to finish mine myself. I don't want my profile be gone for good. I never let an assignment expired 'cause if I do, that would mean I am irresponsible person, which I am not. Being a woman with lots of health issue, I am responsible for my health before my doctor. So when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes due to one of the medications I have been taking, I became very careful with what I put into my mouth. Based on number of studies, chromium supplements help treat diabetes, promote weight loss, lower blood lipid levels, and improve body composition. Chromium helped with satiety, too. I like that it helps reduced cravings for fats and sugars. This is good news since I am trying to lose weight, too as well as doing my best to manage my diabetes. From now on, I would take chromium supplements to make myself healthy.

Smoking is Bad for Health

For years, we have been concerned with my father's inability to quit smoking. He can consume at least a pack of cigar in one day. We are worried for his health, but he doesn't seem to care for his health at all. It is frustrating to tell him to stop, but he would always say that "he is fine and that smoking relieves his stress." I bet he would never say no to cigar sampler specials when it is offered to him for it will give him a chance to taste different kind of cigar. Sometimes, I feel guilty when I say that he is old enough to decide to whatever makes him happy. I feel like it is my responsibility to remind him that smoking is bad for his health. What would I do? He is my father and I love him so much! But he wouldn't listen!

My Dream Job

I have always wanted to be a nurse ever since I graduated from high school. My parents couldn't afford to send me to college due to poverty. And so I decided to work to support my studies. I was able to finished a vocational course (Basic Computer Programming) and was trained as a Nurse Aid in Malaysia. I still plan to pursue my dream/education and would like to have a career in the field of health care. We all know that there are tons of jobs for health care available and those jobs are in demand wherever you go. My Aunt is a nurse working overseas and she is very happy and satisfied. How I wished that I am also a nurse so I can take care of the sick people in the hospital or wherever my help is needed. Indeed, I really admire these medical staffs who work with sick people. For me they are angles sent from up above. I have been in and out of the hospital many times and I have witnessed how hard they worked to help save lives; these nurses, doctors, and all medical staffs deserve appreciations for the good thing they do for us.

Should I Cash My Gold Jewelry?

I don't know why but I am fascinated with gold jewelry. So when I buy jewelry, I made sure it is made of gold. Hubby on the other hand buys me jewelry made of silver. Later on he realized himself that he married a woman who prefers gold jewelry. Now he never buy me any jewelry at all since I don't wear them but the ones I bought when I was still single. The other week we talked about the gold jewelry in my jewelry box and he made a joke saying that we can make money for gold . As I think about it now, why not? Since Christmas is fast approaching, we need extra money to buy gifts for our loved ones. I haven't talk with hubby about my plan yet. Indeed, I can cash in my cash for gold!

Cure for Allergy

If there is one thing we don't want to get from outside home that is free, that would be an allergy. Every year my husband, I and our son suffer from seasonal allergy. The symptoms are different for each of us. Jacob coughs a lot and that makes it hard for him to fall asleep, not to mention that he throws up as if has stomach flu or something. Hubby on the other hand had headache, teary eyes, and sneezes a lot. To me is different, I lose my voice or has laryngitis. This allergy thing is driving us crazy. Prescription medicines do work, but don't really cure or stop it. And so we continue to take medicines till the season change. How I wished we live in Austin so we can avail of the latest invention or cure for allergy by visiting the allergy doctor austin so we don't ave to travel a long way to have our allergy treated. Oh well, I am sure that one of these days, we will find ourselves driving at least 5 hours (one way) on the way to Austin, TX.

TeraTrike Recumbent Trike

Every once in awhile when hubby and I go for a walk in the park, we see someone riding a recumbent bike, and as always I feel like buying one for us right then and there. I think that this recumbent trike is fun and easy to ride not to mention the having its three wheels makes it safer. As I watch the video on youtube, I saw that we can ride it anytime and anywhere we want to for it is transportable. We can ride it on the beach, park...anywhere. I really like that it can be adjusted, thus almost everyone in the family can enjoy riding it. It will help you lose weight, too for you will love riding it every time you feel like it. This brand, TerraTrike Rover I think is the best Recumbent Trike you will find in the market today. Someday soon when budget is not an issue anymore, hubby and I would definitely purchase a Terra Trike Rover available.

Very Busy Lately

It's been very busy in our house lately. No time to really update my blogs nor visit other blogs. I apologize for no reciprocating your visits and comments. With the my monthly thing going on, allergy that gave me a horse voice, Jake's after school activity (karate almost everyday), household chores and maintaining six blogs, there is really no time left for myself. To make matters harder, I haven't written or prepared a talk for Sunday. I feel bad for this will be the first that I haven't not anything about it. I just hope that I would be able to give a talk next time they ask me to. I know I still have three days to make it happen, maybe I don't need to panic but do the best I can to make an uplifting and inspiring talk for the congregation with hubby's help and of course with the Holy Ghost.

Medical Devices

I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease called FSGS after I gave birth to our second child seven years ago; since then I visit hospital and doctor's clinic regularly. I went to dialysis for eight months and was blessed with two baby kidneys. Three days later, the new kidneys were transplanted in me. I was the happiest person that time and I thank God for that. During those critical and stressful times of our lives God has been our constant guide, companion, then the doctors and nurses, and hospital staffs plus the hospital which was equipped with many surgical machines necessary to help save lives. The hospital has everything from electrosurgical generator to ambulatory bp monitor that are mostly made by bovie. Thanks to the modern medical technology medical devices are created for the benefit of those who are sick and in need of serious medical attention and surgeries.

True Friends Are Hard to Find

It took awhile before I finally get adjusted into the way of life in in United States. I have been living in here for a little over 9 years now and honestly speaking I still miss everything I left behind when I decided to marry now ex boyfriend (now my husband). I miss my family so much. Good thing I can with them over the phone anytime I want to and visit them when time and finances allow me/us. I also miss relatives and friends. Talking about friends, it was really hard to find true for me because I am choosy when it comes to it. I'd rather have few friends I can trust than having many who are not true. I made few good friends where we hang out with every other weekend. We enjoy each other's company; doing simple things that strengthen each other's family and friendship. One of the our close friend and us plan on going to Disney World this summer. are all excited. She asked me to find Disney vacation packages that would suit our budget and need. As I search for great packages, Disney cruise came to my mind. So, when I sat with hubby, he agreed that the cruise would be a great choice. I hope my friend and her family would agree, too. This would be the first time for us and them, hope this plan would materialize for I am very excited.

Tin Man - My Favorite Mini Series

I appreciate the guest post, Rodrigo Coffey

Some people believe classic films like The Wizard of Oz should never be touched. The originals were good enough then, and they are good enough now. In fact, many believe these seminal works of art should be protected like historical antiques, encased in amber and shoved into the vaults of Fort Knox, the hallowed chambers guarded by a team of navy seals with nunchucks and trained dogs with rabies. These people have a point. After all, the remake is in large part a cheap gag, a crutch leaned on by lazy writers who are unable to manufacture a creative idea on there own. The mini series Tin Man, however, is not a remake. It is not a sequel or a pastiche. It is a re-imagining.

If you ignore the classic Sci-Fi computer graphics, hipster names and the lame and overreaching attempts at trying to be cool, Tin Man can be appreciated for what it is. An attempt. You see, unlike other shows that rely on dialogues laced with platitudes and stories that are unimaginative, Tin Man reminds us all that we can still try to make good fiction, we can still try to think out of the box, even if what was outside the box ended up being a miserable failure. Yet this is still my favorite mini series of all time, because it was a daring piece of work, and every time I watch it the show inspires me to think in ways that are unconventional. Also, it stars Zooey Deschanel, an actress who is a living zoo of emotion.

The mini series Tin Man is shown only on the Sci Fi Channel, which airs periodically on my tv from

Diet Pills That Work Fast!

Finally, summer is over. No more soaring heat that stopped me from working on my goal which is to walk outside everyday. Fall is here and I can feel the cool breeze of the wind. This morning, hubby and I went for a walk for an hour. It was a little bit cold, but we both enjoyed our walk. We plan on walking every morning after dropping our son off to school with the hope of losing weight in return. A Diet pills that work fast would be a great help if we would find one. We've been trying to lose weight but nothing worked for us. I think it's time for us to try diet pill; who knows it may work for us. Though hubby is very skeptical about diet pills, he has no choice but to try it before going to the last resource which is a lap band surgery.

These You May Put in the Dishwasher

Who would have thought that these stuffs can be put in the dishwasher? Yes, you can according to the Real Simple. You want them to be cleaned easier, then too bad you can wash them in the washer. But wait the dishwasher can. By so doing it saves us from long hours of scrubbing to make it clean the way you /we want it. I am glad to know; aren't you?

Baseball caps can get bent in the washing machine but hold their shape in the dishwasher, especially inside a contraption like the Ball Cap Washer.

Action figures and other small toys can ride in a mesh lingerie bag on the top rack (but don’t wash Barbie or she’ll have a horrible hair day).

Rain boots should have the liners removed and lie horizontally. Hook flip-flops on tines in the top rack. (FYI, Crocs are not dishwasher-safe.)

Tools with metal or plastic handles will be fine. Towel-dry afterward to prevent rusting.

Ceramic cabinet knobs do well in the silverware basket, so if you feel like embarking on the process (remove, wash, replace), go for it.

Hairbrushes and combs made of plastic can take a spin, but not wood or natural boar-bristle brushes. Be sure to remove all the hair first to protect the drain.

Fan grilles, switch plates, and vent covers are in if they’re plastic, aluminum, or steel. Enameled, painted, or plated should stay out.

Shin guards, knee pads, and mouth guards―toss them all into the top rack.

Garden tools may have come in contact with pesticides or animals, so don’t mix them with a load of dishes. (And don’t wash those with wood handles.)

Light-fixture covers are fine in the top rack, as long as they’re not antique, enameled, or painted.

Potatoes can get nice and clean in the top rack with a rinse-only cycle (no detergent). Sound crazy? It makes mashed potatoes for 20 a lot quicker.

Cast-iron, enameled-cast-iron, and copper pots and pans are on the never list. Why? Cast iron rusts; enameled cast iron chips; copper dents.

Formal dishes and nice flatware can get worn with repeated washings. Rule of thumb: If it’s something you would cry over harming or losing, don’t put it in. (If you do put sterling silver in the dishwasher, use about a tablespoon of detergent and don’t mix it with stainless-steel flatware; a chemical reaction between the metals can discolor the silver.)

Crystal glasses are especially vulnerable. Food particles can etch them; heat can cause cracks. After hand washing (it’s usually safer than using the china/crystal setting), dry with a cloth that hasn’t been laundered with fabric softener, which can leave a film.

Wooden spoons can warp and crack. If you don’t mind replacing them frequently, throw them in; otherwise wash them in the sink.

Brass items should never see the inside of a dishwasher. Hot water can remove the natural protective layer that forms on brass.

Patient's Guide on Surviving Mesothelioma

Every time I hear news about people who got sick from working at a company that uses asbestos, I can't help but feel sad. These people's only desire is to earn a living to sustain their families need; most of the time few or none of them have any idea of the bad side effects they'll get from working with such jobs. And if they do have knowledge of the bad effects of the materials they are using, they probably trust that the company are careful enough to take full responsibility for the welfare of their employees. Because of such neglect these victims suffer from Mesothelioma Disease that if not treated right away, they will end up dying with Mesothelioma Cancer or Asbestosis. If you are one of those victims, you should seek the advice of someone who is an expert of mesothelioma case.

A Mesothelioma Lawyer for instance can help you investigate and sue the companies who were involved and responsible in the acquired disease. You deserve some justice and therefore needs an attorney who is an experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers and law firms that are excellent sources of information about various doctors and treatment options available for this disease.

If you don't know any Mesothelioma Attorney the first thing you do is to do some research. You should know their actual credentials, accomplishments, commitment to the case and and most of all how many cases he/she had already handled. You will know if he/she is the best and trusted lawyer if she/he is not only skilled, expert and experienced, but also supportive, caring, compassionate, thoughtful, and one who understands that your health needs always take precedence.

Premium Home Entertainment

Back in the Philippines, every family wishes to have a cable subscription at their homes. We regard this as one of the premium home entertainment every family could enjoy. But unfortunately, not all could afford that is why local TV is still a hit in every home.

But here in the US, cable TV is no longer considered premium entertainment but old school because everyone is making a fuss about local tv satellite which is commonly known as direct tv. There are many providers of direct tv satellite but not all have the same packages. Some has expensive packages while others have cheap but limited channels.

Speaking about direct tv services, I just visited They offer great programming packages with the cheapest deals with plenty of HD channels offered. Imagine you can get basic entertainment package for only 29.99 a month!! And the basic package includes 45 HD channels already!

Anyway, I think I am checking more of their deals. Their offers are quite interesting. So, how about you? Are you interested to avail of a direct tv satellite service too? If you are, check them out at You might want to avail there offers too.

I've Made up My Mind!

Finally, after a week or so of putting aside placing my orders at Amazon, I made up my mind to just go ahead and purchase the winter boots I have been wanting for a long time. It took awhile for me to decide because I felt like paying a hundred bucks for two boots are still to much which is actually a great deal considering they are name brand shoes. I am now excited for them to arrive. I just wished they will look exactly the same they looked online. Oh man! I hate returning stuffs back. I don't like to deal with all the hassles associated with it once I am done paying. Yup, I am ready for winter! Aren't you? After the long hot summer....finally the weather starts to cool off a little bit.

Free Directory Submission

I noticed lately that my blogs don't get much traffic anymore. I know very well the reasons why. I have been very busy with a lot of things that I neglected them by not visiting other blogs, late updates, and so forth. Monetary wise, online offers has significantly declined due to high Real Rank. I have confided with some blogger friends about blog traffic and they said that if I need for the traffic to increase, the only choice I have is to submit my blog at directory submission services. They also said that there is a site where you can submit your blog free. My friends already submitted their blogs and the traffic went up dramatically. After hearing that great result, I now consider submitting all my six blogs and hopefully will get the same great results.

TV Ads

I try to avoid watching tv shows late at night because I noticed that most of the commercials or ads are not wholesome. I don't know why, but every time I see a commercial or ad on television about male enhancement product, I can't help but feel like it isn't right to advertise it. For me, it is a topic that should only be discussed between the person involve and the doctor. The whole world can't help you, but your physician does, right? These things for me is a sensitive matter, therefore it shouldn't be discussed in public. You may say, I am weird, but this is what I feel.

And I Was Right....

The first time I met my son's first grade teacher, I didn't feel that excited! Aside from she is very young, she only has three years of experienced teaching. She didn't look like has enough patience to deal with the kids. These feelings were confirmed last week, Friday when I helped her with Math subject. I saw how she doesn't have kindness on dealing with the children. I never heard her talk with them with gentleness/kindness, but irritated and impatient. I try to avoid comparing but I can't help myself for it is very obvious how different she is to my son's previous teacher at Pre K, and Kindergarten. To give my self peace, I am trying to give her the benefit of the doubt by thinking that she was just busy and have had enough for that day especially since it was Friday. I pray I was wrong and that she is indeed a nice person to entrust my son in her care.

My Oily Skin

Sometimes having an oily skin is not fun at all. Good thing to know that there is something I can use for my oily skin for I am so tired of seeing it shines even after few minutes of cleaning or washing my face. I fairness, I am still lucky because my skin is not prone to acne even though it is oily. I heard that some people get pimples and acne because their skin are oily, but not mine. That is one thing I am thankful for. I am also glad that they make cosmetics and cleanser especially designed for oily skin that way people know which products to use in all types of skin, be it dry, oily and normal. We can even buy best acne products for oily skin! What about that!? Isn't it great or what? Indeed modern technology has come along way. Everyday new products are discovered and tested to be safe and effective for the use of man (everyone, that is).

I Need to Lose Weight

A blogger friend just posted a picture of her showing us how possible it would be to lose weight in just a matter of three weeks. Her tummy is flat and overall body is lean again. We asked her what her secret was and she replied saying that she really took it seriously by dieting and walking on a treadmill. At first it was hard, she said. But after seeing the results, she was glad she didn't stop. Now, I am thinking of doing the same thing starting tomorrow. It would be nice if I would couple it with thermogenic fat burners. My health condition is really in bad shape; my blood sugar level is up due to overweight and I am sure that a fat burner can help speed up the weight loss process. I need to lose those extra fats I have accumulated for years. I just hope that this fat burner is effective as they said it is, as well as safe...much better if it is less expensive, too.

My Fave TV Show, Monk

Before I went to my son's school this afternoon, I was busy finishing online tasks. I don't know about you, guys but sometimes I can't really concentrate writing when there are noises around, but if the TV is, I wouldn't mind the noise especially if the tv shows that's on is my favorite one. Anyway, while I was watching my favorite TV show "Monk" this morning, I can't help but notice that some of the advertisement is all about skin problems and the treatment you can use to get rid of it; for instance products for acne, cellulite and freckles. They sound so good to be true because of the testimonies of the people who have tried the products. What is more surprising to me is the disease called herpes which I seldom hear. Do you know that you can find cures for herpes online? Yes, so look online, you will be glad you did.

Jake was Bullied

As a parent, I tend to worry too much about my child. I want to protect him from any harm that may come his way. One thing I was worried about before he even started going to school was bullying. My son is a very innocent boy who is friendly and patient. When someone hurt him he will never fight back, but cry. The other day, he told me that two older kids at school tried to hurt him. He was in the bathroom when these boys asked him to get out of their way. Confused, my son asked them 'why' they didn't say anything, but yell on him; scared, Jacob immediately ran away. I told him next time they bully him again tell it to his teacher so they would do something about it. I just don't know what will I do when they actually hurt him physically. Bullying must be taken seriously. Many children even teenagers were not able to tolerate it and did something they thought was the solution to their problem ended hurting themselves. I don't want that to happen to my son. So much on bullying, I need to hit the hay soon, but before I do that, need to clean myself up, brush my teeth and clean my face real well to avoid acne and other skin blemishes. I use blackhead remover to clean the area around my nose for I see couple of blackheads showing up.

Halloween Costumes

It's been awhile since I last went to the mall, that is why when hubby told me that he would drop me off at the mall instead of dragging me to the hospital for his doctor's appointment, I said "yes" right away. I was at the mall from 10am to 1pm; that was three hours window shopping. I went to Macy's looking for dress shoes I can wear at church, and a white blouse. When I found what I needed and bought it; I did nothing else afterward, but window shopping. Window shopping takes away my stress; it also serves as a therapy for me, lol. Anyway, one of the shop I checked sells Halloween costumes; I thought of buying one for me to wear while accompanying my son on trick or treating. It was funny because when I was at the store, I saw some naughty nurse costumes. They don't looked scary, but sexy; kids will never get scared with this kind of costume. I like the costume attached here for it isn't that sexy and naughty looking at all. I wonder whether hubby would like a costume for there are some very nice looking and conservative looking costume he could wear. Our son on the other hand has his own iron man costume already and couldn't wait till Halloween it here so he could wear it.
