Archive for September, 2008
After three weeks of being of -track, my kids are back to school today. Their first day and it went just fine. Of course when they got home, they both are hungry and wanted some food right away. So I asked what happened to lunch? They said, nothing, we just want to eat. I checked their backpacks and yap, there’s homework waiting for later. My son, he has some questions why there is homework right away. They just got back and why homework? He was shaking his head like he’s perplexed. My little girl doesn’t care, homeworks or no homeworks, seems fine to her. No questions asked.
On the other hand, today is the last day of September. Tomorrow comes a new month Ocotober, wherein it’s Joey’s favorite month. Not only it’s his birthday but also it’s Halloween. He is busy right now thinking what he wants to be for Halloween. He can’t decide. With a lot of choices, who can? But either way, he said it will be the best. Have a good day everyone!
Yes, it’s the weekend and the last weekend of September as well. Amazing, how time flies but it sure does. My little boy is turning 9 in a month, I can’t even imagine. Hubby is still looking for a perfect entertainment center. He called me up and said, he got it. He is loading it right now. Okay, I can’t wait to see it. We are going to be busy unloading and putting it up. My dining room is a mess. I need to put away some stuff to make it look tidy. My little girl’s toys are scattered all over the floor. She loves to play in that area, I wonder why?
It looks like I won’t be able to go anywhere today. It would have been nice to go out, the weather is great plus it’s a Saturday. But anyway, it can wait, I need to get this cleaning done and make some space before hubby unload the entertainment center. Have a good day y’all!
I am sitting here thinking what to have for dinner. I don’t really feel good so I was thinking of getting some take out but then again I have a ground beef thawed, so BINGO, i’ll make a meatloaf. It’s been a while since we have meatloaf so this is a good change. I have some small red potatoes and green beans with it, so it really worked just fine. Hubby loves it and the children did also. I thought my little boy will give me a hard time but he did not. He is so picky, when it comes to food most of the time. With all the allergies he has, he has to be picky on what and what not to eat.
It’s Dancing With The Stars tonight, I love this show so I better let them eat early so that I won’t be bothered when my show starts. I will be able to concentrate then, have fun, enjoy watching it uninterrupted. Take care!
The weather is great and I am pretty sure it’s going to be a very good weekend. A friend of mine offered me to go to the mountains. She said, it’s pretty up there, the leaves are changing in colors and it’s the right time to go up before snow came. I think so too, but I can’t this weekend, we’ll see on the next. Hubby has something planned already and we are going to stick with it. Maybe next week, will be good. I wonder if the kids will love to go up to the mountains. My little boy only love to go there to snowboard but this time he can’t do it yet so he might say no. But anyway, we’ll see what happend, the scenery there will be very beautiful with the changing season. I think going up there will be fun. Have to wait and see.
What’s goi’n on with the market today? It was down 450 points and they all blame the housing crisis. Everyone is perplexed and scared. But i know the stock market will bounce back. It’s like life, it goes up and down, I like to think of it that way. Hubby has no comment , he said just wait and see. It’s not good to be stressed about it. It’s beyond our control.
The weather is great. Lots of sunshine, the kids had fun playing at the backyard, blowing bubbles, jumping on the trampoline and swinging. Looking at it, little things make them happy. Very simple life indeed. I wish they will stay like that forever, just be a kid, but it’s impossible like it or not everything grows, they grow and they become an adult too. Just be happy and have a good outlook in life. Always think positive.
We went to a lot of furniture store today to find the perfect entertainment center. And guess what? With so much choices, seems like hubby and I cannot agree which one to get. hehehe. We eyed on a couple of styles, which we think will look good in our living room but we are still undecided. I did not realize how complicated it will be. We’ll think it over tonight and see which one. I already clean some stuff from the old one, get it out of the way, to make room for the new one. A lot of work, yes, physical labor. So hopefully by tomorrow we will be able to get a new one, bring it to the house, and have it assembled. My son can’t wait to play his Nintendo Wii game system, and I can’t wait to get my exercise on this new Wii fit. Oh my! can I really do that? Wait and see.
Another day to raise and shine. We are still enjoying the off-tract, sleeping late and waking up late. As what my little boy said, he is living a good life, waking up when he wants to. Mom doesn’t have to pull him out of bed and tell him to take a shower and hurry up co’z it’s almost time for school. LOL! Mom also got her beauty rests, and honestly, I am liking it, we all need some time off from all the craziness in life. Morning is always the busiest time for me (during school days). I am liking it so far, to be able to relax, unwind, and basically take my time. And i am going to use it well co’z it won’t be long till they go back to school again. So we are going to have fun, lots of fun for now.
Today is the first Sunday of the month. When I was little, the first Sunday is always special. We all go the church, and thank God for all the blessings that he has given us and being always there for us in good times and in bad. Papa is so faraway, his work prevented him from going home often which we all understand. He will come home everytime school ends and during Christmas. We only see him two times a year. So growing up without Papa, wasn’t that bad. We really did our best not give Mama a hard time, because we know that not having Papa makes her sad and we do not want to add more of her sadness. We want her to be happy. The reason why all of us turn out great. And Papa did not have a choice, he has to work, feed his family, take care of everything we need. It broke his heart being so faraway but that’s life, sometimes you have to make sacrifices to give your family a good life. Honestly, we are proud for both of them. They did a very good job. ^_^
Just got done talking to my mother. Hubby is going to be surprised when he sees the telephone bill. hehehe. I made a lot of calls lately, international calls. I also called my cousin a couple times since she got there, she’s having a great time in PI but of course she misses her hubby here in the States. She’s a little bit worried, since her husband’s surgery will be done before she comes back. The doctor moved it according to his schedule. But i told her, it will be alright, since her husband’s sister is willing to take care of him until he feels better. But i know as a wife, it’s difficult not to be there, she just wants the best for him and not him feel miserable. He needs the surgery and it’s okay for him to get it eventhough she’s not there. On the lighter note, Mama feels so much better now, i think her cholesterol is going down as well as her blood pressure. That is music to my ears. Have a good afternoon everyone!
Is this a new one? Yes, this is just another blog of mine detailing my life, happiness, sorrows and everything in between. And of course you are more than welcome to share your ideas, opinion and thoughts.
As a wife and a mother of two, life is not always a bed of roses. There is always up and downs, mountains to climb, and ocean to cross. But how you see it, and how you solve everything that is thrown at you, is what life all about. Coming to America, not knowing the unknown is such a brave thing to do. America indeed is such a beautiful place, lots of opportunities and if you are willing, you can become someone you never think of becoming. Perseverance, a lot of hard work, persistence, you surely can get there. As i say, Spread your wings and fly way high. Think positive and always do your best.
As what my little boy said, sorry mom, my tests score is not that great but I did my best. That’s the best I can do, and I don’t have a problem with it. Do you? What can I say? I don’t have a problem with it either. Life indeed is beautiful, always try your best and explore the world, there are a lot of good things out there, waiting for you to discover. Don’t wait, do it now. Look for some ideas, if not, create one.
