Let's Prevent Swine Flu

Hello mommies out there, I'm sure as a mom like me, you're doing everything you can just to prevent this swine flu or swine influenza. I am also worried, of course who's not going to worry if it's very dangerous sickness. Let's just not loose hope, there is swine flu prevention we can ever do. God is always there for us. I wish we could get thru this, and I am praying that all of our family will be safe from this sickness.

Answer For My Sentiments

Oh look how powerful our God is, I was just finished writing bout my sentiments a while ago and when I checked my email, God answered so quickly. Look what He told me.....

Footprints In The Sand

One night I had a dream--
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
"I don't understand why in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
"When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

A poem from Momgen's site. I am receiving notifications of her post whenever she had one because I subscribed to her site. And when I opened her site right after I post about my sentiments, this is what I read. Oh, this is such a wonderful poem, I haven't read this all my life. I am so touched and feeling blessed because God is always with me.

How's My Day Today?

8:00pm, I just came home from Gilmore. I left 4 o'clock in the afternoon hurrying up to catch Servimax open. My digicam was busted, It can't be open, I don't know the problem and I am worrying so much for my precious adopted baby (adopted because I have my real babies). I just used it yesterday, I transfered my pictures to my computer and when I 'm about to use it yesterday when my personalized mousepad from artscow just arrived I can't open it anymore. I thought my battery was just empty so I waited till my battery has charged but still, can't be open. Argh! Now it's in Servimax and I have to wait for 7 days for diagnosis. Gosh, I will miss it! I hope it was just for repair and no need to change any parts coz if that happens aside from another "gastos" again, I'll be waiting for two months before I'll have it back again.
Sigh! That is another problem again. You know I am trying to make some sidelines so I could help my husband in some of our expenses and so I can buy what I need for myself but here I am again, thinking where in the hell will I get 6,000 if ever my camera's damage is the main board =(. I asked the receptionist if she had any idea what my cam's damage and she said it may be the main board or just the fuse. Oh how I wish it was just the fuse coz I don't have money to buy main board for 5,000 pesos yet! aAhhh! Lord please help me. I am so preoccupied with lots of I nonsense things. I am not supposed to think of these problems but they keep on coming in my mind. Yesterday I was so excited because I am waiting for my photo book to arrive and now I am a bit worried. Oh, I am trying everything just to earn extra money but surprise expenses keep on coming. Did I mention that aside from being realtor I am also selling books before? not anymore because architect (my supplier) seems so busy, I am also selling bags, and now cellphones and another thimngs that comes out in my mind is photo book making? What am I trhinking? Can I do this all? Yes I know I can, I am trying but most of all doing my best in selling house and lots. I hope I could get thru this, I hate thinking and worrying too much. I don't wanna add more wringkles in my face, I have nomoney to go back to Let's Face It! Gosh!

How's My Life in Real Estate

I would like to congratulate myself for becoming a Realtor for a year last March! Hooray! It's been a year now and I can really say I have experienced lots of things being a Realtor. There were times that I really cried so hard when I first experienced not to close a deal. I feel so frustrated and devastated to myself. My husband is very supportive, he's always there to guide me to my new career and help me out with some sort of problems I am dealing with. Being a realtor is not that easy. Dealing with different people is my expertise but not with this area. I don't know why I am afraid but I think I am still lack of self confidence. I would like to improve myself, I 'd like to overcome my fear, boost my self confidence so I could help more people find their dream home. Aside from the fact that I'd like to earn more so I could buy all what I am dreaming to buy for my family, I also want to become a succesful Realtor someday. Build my own office, create my own name and build my own team. I'd like to have like Wilmington NC Real Estate that is supporting some projects too. Aside from selling houses they were also rescuing homeless animals.

How's Being a WHAM?

Work at home mom and stayed at home mom seems no different to me except for the fact that you are busy sometimes and even you're at home you can't able to take care of your kids. I am a Realtor, I am only busy when there's an inquiry and most of the time (if lucky), I am not at home during weekends because that's my tripping day. Sometimes it's boring but when you caught even only one big fish a month it's all worth it. When I am feeling bored I do have lots to do, first I can play with my kids, if they are busy playing on their own or they are watching TV, I can do blogging, but most of all, I can do digiscrapping. Digiscrapping is one of my favorite thing to do as of now. So I can really say I am happy being a WHAM or Work at Home Mom. Aside from those I have something else in mind I wanted to learn, I want to COOK and BAKE. I want to cook for my husband and bake cookies for my kids. I know learning to cook and bake is expensive but I will surely learn that someday. Aah what else can I say about being a WHAM? Nothing. All I know is that I am happy being a WHAM, I am contented with my life, I am happy being here looking after my kids while working. I am also happy being a wife of my loving husband. So I am now far from those real cheating wives I am currently seeing in the web. I think some of the women should focus on something else when their bored so they will not become a lonely cheating wives. Though I really beleive that there are lots of cheating house wives out there. I just don't know their reasons. Maybe they are just bored or feeling unloved. I am so glad I have my kids and husband. There's no reason to get bored.

Close Friends Reunion

Lovely Couple
Reymey and Christine

Grace, Me, Philip and Nikki at the Reception

Grace, Nikki and I at the Church

As I have said to my last post, Reymey, my classmate from college is going to get married and that was yesterday held at Sta. Quiteria Parish Church. I am so happy I attended, aside from seeing that special occasion of his life I was able to be with my close friends Philip, Nikki and Grace. Philip was staying in Thailand for a living and he was just having his vacation here. Nikki and Grace are my closest friends in college, their actually staying here the Philippines but we weren't able to see each other more often. Nikki is busy with her family now like I do and Grace is also busy finding a new job and still waiting for her Mr. Right. We were always teasing her, pushing her to get married already. But how can she able to do that is she don't even had a boyfriend. I forgot to tell her bout the online dating, I should tell her sometime and had her register in one of the dating sites like the one in miami singles. Miami Singles is a site where you can able to find your perfect match. Just simply register and fill up some information needed and you can choose from so many people looking for mr. and ms. right! I have known some people who found their true love in this kind of sites. I hope my friend would start this dating site so she could finally meet her guy.

So Hot in Here!

The weather is so weird this year, it's too hot! My kids are always wet because of too much sweat. They are loosing their appetite. They seem not getting hungry, what they all wanted is to drink and drink cold water or juice. I am worried about their health, I think it's the weather is affecting their appetite. I am trying to serve them some of their favorite food so they will eat but no effect at all. If they keep on doing that what will happen to their heath then? I wish we could put air conditioning already even only inside our room. I pity my kids suffering from too much heat. Even my husband is complaining everytime he comes home from the office, but we don't have choice. We don't have budget for aircon yet. But soon in time if we have extra income, I'll put aircon first in my list.

Children's Playground Visit

Yesterday, we went to Children's Playground in Manila with the kids. It's two ride from our village, 1 jeep to Monumento and LRT to UN Avenue. I decided to bring them there because it's too hot to stay and play at home. Unlike in the park, it's relaxing in there, you only have to pay 10 peso each for entrance and the kids will surely enjoy the slides. We stayed there for 3 hours and ete dinner at Jollibee. I actually have no budget for this, I just thought of bringing them there that time because I know Ishi really wants to go there and we have no time to bring them there this weekend because I have somewhere else to go. Parks and playground is my favorite place, If we only have that much extra, I will bring them there every weekend since it was their favorite place too. Actually, you don't have to spent a lot in there, but you know, everything has to be in the budget. We really need to think of an extra income for leisure. My extra earnings in blogging is for my photo book assignments. I was thinking of investing online and sign up for stable interest. I was just afraid to enter things I an not really sure of. But it's okay coz the kids are not longing for any expensive leisure as of the moment, they were contented playing in the park as long as it has slides. I just have to earn more so when they grew up they can also go to some places they will surely love like Disney Land. Oh, it's so nice to dream, I will surely prepare for that!

Ishi was Finally Enrolled in La Cabecera

I am so happy I finally enrolled Ishi at La Cabecera last Monday. Less worries and aside from that I want her to avail the free summer class for 2 weeks.

I hope she'll enjoy her first real school and hoping for the best results. I will try not to expect too much from my daughter, I will try to be more patient to her whenever I need to teach her or guide her with her assignments.
I was suggesting to my husband to buy a motorcycle so I can easily bring and fetch Ishi to school since it was just near our village. But of course hubby didn't agree to that so I have no choice but to ride a pedicab going to school everyday. I don't like to hire a school service for Ishi, I prefer to accompany her everyday. If possible I want to be near her every minute. But I don't think that's possible coz I still need to work at home. How I wish their school has CCTV like some other schools I know so I could see her every minute. I am a paranoid mommy, I am always afraid of something I don't actually know! I will suggest to that school to try virtual PBX so I could easily contact them if I wanted to talk to my daughter hehehehe. Am I too much? I think that's the least that I can do protecting my daughter while she's in school. At least they can already create their toll-fee number like most of the businesses have. That will help them promote their school too by just using 800 number. Most of the popular copmpanies using 800 number, I think it's about time for them to use this too. Anyway that is not actually my concern anymore, all I want is to make sure my daughter is safe in their school. And if ever i needed to talk to my daughter, I just wanted to make sure their lines is always available or atleast there are other means to contact them.

What a Good Friday!

What a good friday! Everyone is busy in church, some are just staying home and some are spending time in a beach or resort to use their holy week vacation. Yesterday we just stayed home, watching some old movies about Jesus. Bond with the kids and do some scrapbooking. Today is really a good friday. We spent half of our day in Angel Anne's Resort near our place. Just the four of us, my daughter, my son and my husband. Our children really had fun! Its nice to go out with the whole family, I love seeing them enjoying, bonding! My daughter doesn't want to go home anymore, she said she wants to live there! She really loves swimming pool even she was already shaking because the water is so cold! The place is really nice, it's decorated with different cartoon, very colorful. I know another resort that is surrounded of wood furniture. I think they were all antique, we're suposed to be in there because it's also near from our place but I chose Angel Ann's because of the theme.

Lap Band

Gosh, I attended aerobics today. I think it's about time to go back to that class and loose so much fat in my tummy because these fats are starting spread in my body parts. I noticed my tummy is getting bigger and bigger as well as my shoulder and arms. Yuck! There are lots of things/procedure that can be done nowadays, have you heard about lap band already? I think this is new because it's my first time to hear it, and it's seem so safe and more hi-tech procedure. I have read lap band testimonials and their clients were fulfilled and undergone successful surgeries. Look at their clients in lap band before and after, from big and fat body to slim and healthy body. Wow! Do i need to dial 1-800-GET-SLIM already? Hmmm...reading their qualifications, I don't think I am qualified. I am not overweight, I only have big tummy! If you know somebody who needs this just dial the number and help them get slim today!

I Miss You Papa!

Last March 20, 2009 was my dad's 18th death anniversary. Yearly when I was still single, we used to cook at home anything that my family can share together. We we're praying for him and sometimes my brother used to say "hala si papa dinadalaw tayu". I miss those times! Last March I didn't even prayed for him, or should I say I never remembered him! I'm so sorry papa! But you know in my heart that I love you so much. I miss you very much! I just tend to forget things. Wherever you are right now I know that you are happy, happy seeing us up there. Me, your panganay has already grown up, with husband and kids now. I am happy with my family and I am sure you're happy for me too! I know you have lots of dreams for me, for my brothers and sister. I am sorry I didn't able to help you fulfilled those dreams. I tried but they didn't listen. I am still trying with Jayr, I may not providing his tuition fees but I am here to guide him, help him financially if there's extra. I am hoping that he could also finish his college. I am also hoping that if he graduates, he could also help James and Jessa with their lives. I already have my own family, I can't provide 100% help for them. I also have dreams for my family, I hope they understand. I was just disappointed to myself coz I didn't finish my jplans for them before I raised my own. But you know papa, it all worth it, having a kids is really a great fullfilment for me. I am very happy. I am sure you can see me from there. Though, I supposed to help them, first, bring them to college, bought mama a house but for now, I can't do those yet. I have my own plans for myself and for my family. How I wish I could still do those maybe if I am earning big. I do still want to continue those dreams for them. I hope God will let me. I miss you papa!

My Favorite Perfume

When I was younger, I love to use colognes, I love the sweet smell of baby colognes. But everything has changed now maybe because I can afford to buy perfume instead of cologne hehehe. This is true because when I was studying in college, I can't afford to buy any toiletries for myself except for powder, deodorant and cologne. Aside from that no more! Sometimes if I have spare money I can buy a cheap lotion just to remove the dryness of my skin. Now that I have my own money to spend, I am now buying a perfume that I really love though I am not actually the type of person that loves branded perfumes just like what I have seen in perfume blog. But I am still trying some of the branded perfume of course when somebody gave me. Just like my present Diesel Perfume now, it was just given my my aunt living in Canada.
