Old and New Phones

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


The first time I saw a cell phone was when I was in grade six.  It was huge then, it is like a telephone but it is mobile. I often see them in adult's waist, clipped in their belts and it has an awful sound when it rings. After that I saw beepers. I've been dreaming such gadgets before but I know I won't have that until I finish studying and earn money on my own.

I was lucky I was able to buy it when I was in first year college. I was a working student and be able to buy a phone of my own and better as the 90's phone. Nokia 3210 - that is my first investment for myself and I was so happy with it! After that phone, I bought a Motorola a blue one that looks like a small laptop. I love that phone and I miss it! After then I have a Alcatel. I love every phones I bought! After that Alcatel my boyfriend who is now my husband gave me his old phone another Nokia but forgot the model already. 

If you just have noticed I am not into latest phones, I am contented for what I have as long as it is reliable and durable. As long as I can call and text, set an alarm, check calendar and has a calculator I will live with it. I don't need a very techy and expensive phone. I just like cute phones that's why I was fascinated with this Cute NET10 commercial where Real NET10 customer talking about the cheap but cute phones.

Macbook Air Sleeves

Since portable computers, aka laptops, notebooks, palmtops, and ipads have been more famously bought these days than desktop computers, the protective covering for each has also proliferated the market with your choice of color and specific size that fits your gadget perfectly.  Like if you have a Macbook Air and looking for macbook sleeves or any laptop sleeves you can look for the 11" HERE and the 13" HERE.
It is important to have some sort of a bag like laptop sleeve for your gadget because it is your protection for unwanted damage especially when accidents occur. While you may not drop it, when it does, at least it does not suffer much from the shock it gets from the drop. The bag, pocket or envelope also protects your gadget from possible scratches especially when you bring them along while you are in a croded place.

Having those pockets in different colors as many as there is, it is more likely that your favorite color is available too. When you bump into someone else having the same gadget, you know which is yours and which is not.

They are actually elegantly cool!

Kids' First Day of School

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Classes started yesterday and that means everybody will be as busy as a bee! My kids were both excited to go to school yesterday, They woke up early, dressed up early and ate without me having a hard time asking them to. That was a very nice day for me. Everybody had a nice Monday! I wish everyday is like that! 

My daughter rode a school bus and I am so proud of her being so brave. I didn't expect she will confidently ride on it. I thought she will be scared but no, she is so brave. When she came home that afternoon, she look so tired but when she started telling stories, I can tell she had a great time in her school. I am so glad she liked it in there! Now I can breath easily everyday she's not with me. I know that when she's in school, she will be safe and will enjoy! You know what they say that mom knows best so I am letting her go and will let her live her life. I am not saying I am not gonna take care of her but I will teach her to be independent. I sitll didn't ask about the the cell phone if she can have one while in the school so that anytime she can call me or call a friend when she needs to. It is really hard to look for a phone where everything you need is there already and you want an affordable. I really should have find one soon!

Cutting Bills

I was writing bill payments when I came across with the check book balance.  Yikes!  It is alarming.  We need to cut bills, or must look for cheaper service providers.  And stop not required subscriptions.  As I look at it, the highest bill we are paying for is the mortgage.  The house payment is very important.  We never failed paying on time. 

Next is the gas.  With sky rocketing gas prices, the budget is difficult to maintain.  I am limiting my travels if they are not necessary.  Our out-of-town trips are minimized also, so to save mileage and gas on my car.  Argh!  Isn't it a rip off?  Why are these things happening?  We don't have the control because we are only the consumers.  But our spending can be controlled, right?  We have low cost insuranceso there is no complain with that. 

As a housewife, maintaining the budget in the household is also my job.  A personal assistant to husband when it comes to checking the financial status of the household.  It is not easy you know.  It is tough.  Sometimes you will get a headache just looking at the expenses.  Managing the household's financial services leads to balance living too

Mom's Bday

Thanks for the guest post by Donn Schroeder

Happy Birthday to my Mom! I love my mom so much. She is the most important woman in my life. I remember sitting in front of my television watching the evening news channels from and receiving a phone call from my brother. He told me that the doctor confirmed our worst fear, my mom had breast cancer. My heart dropped and I felt the room begin to spin. I do not remember putting the phone down, but I do remember getting on my knees and sobbing like a newborn baby. The tears would not stop and now I had to contemplate the idea of losing my mom to cancer. The word burned in my head and stung my heart. She was there for it all. She was there when I graduated,got engaged, got married and gave birth. She was the one holding my hand through it all. I knew I had to do the same for her. She was just as scared as I was back then. Well that was 3 years since I received that call and this birthday celebrates another year of health.

My Birthday!

Our Wedding Anniversary
