TGIF Everyone!

Here I am in this Friday morning in front of my laptop blogging and browsing around. The kids are having ice cream while watching movie. It's so cold and they are having ice cream lol. They are having a movie marathon while waiting for daddy to be home. Later on we are going out to the park. I hope it won't rain because it's so gloomy outside.

Unlike yesterday the sun was so bright and beautiful. Today is so different it looks like the rain is coming. last night was pouring and it seems like the rain is going to continue today. I hope will warm up later this afternoon so we can go out.

Okay I have to get off here and make lunch for my kiddos. It will be a very easy lunch because they only asked me to make them the instant noodles. So, instant noodles it is! Have a good day my family and friends thank you for visiting me here.

What A Busy Day I Had

What a busy day I had today. First I dropped off the kids to school then, the teacher asked me if I can come back after lunch to help her. After that I went to the store and pick up some groceries. Then go back to the house and work a little. Then off I go to the school again.

Anyway my son was so happy that mommy was in the classroom with him. I will be back to school on Thursday to help the teacher again. While at the store today I saw a lot of summer stuff already including above ground pools and swimming suits. Is that mean that the weather will start to warm up soon? Well, I hope so I am kind of tired with the freezing temperature already.

Strawberry Dip In Chocolate

My son made me make some strawberry dip in chocolate tonight. At first he was eating the strawberry just plain. Then, he asked me if I can dip the strawberries in the chocolate. So, I did and they enjoyed it. I am not a big fun of chocolate but my husband and kids love chocolate.

I will be sharing the picture that I took later on. I have to download it to my laptop. I have to go to bed early tonight. The kids are in bed already because they got school tomorrow. The 3 day weekend is over and 3 more coming up this weekend. No school on Friday and the kids are already excited lol.

My daughter asked me already if her best friend can come over on Friday for another sleep over. I already say yes to her so she is looking forward on Friday. So funny because sometimes they talked together and planned on what they are going to do, without asking us parents. My son is so jealous because he doesn't have any close friend yet to sleep over with him. So, he end up playing with the girls lol! Poor baby.

So Crowded

The last time we went to the Christmas tree lighting was not very fun at all. It was just too crowded and when the show was done it was so hard to fight the crowd to go back to our car. They do have some crowd control but, only in one spot. They also have stanchions on the entrance where the singers go in. It was a velvet rope and my son want to play with it lol.

I guess the kids was a little bored and it was just too much people for them. Next time we have to go early and find a good spot that way we can park closer to the event also. We want to park closer when we got there but all we see was a barricades. So we park a little far away and walked. Anyway next time we make sure to come early.

I Like It!

I really like the new printer that hubby bought me for Christmas. It has a cheaper ink compare to the old one. I can print more picture now for my family in the Philippines. With the cheap ink I don't have to worry about spending too much. I hate my old hp printer because the printer ink is so expensive. So, finally we have a new one and I really like it.

The old printer is in the attic now lol. I still have a couple inkjet cartridges left for the old printer but, to make that printer work I have to put 3 in it. I just put it away with the old printer. Now I am in the process of exchanging all the picture frames at home with the latest family photos. I am hoping to finish working on those frames soon.

Fun Night

The kids are having a very fun night tonight and last night. They have friends come over and it makes them so happy. Right now they are watching movies with hubby in the family room while I am blogging here in the living room lol. I don't like to watch a movie that I had already seen before. So here I am in the computer blogging.

They are watching how to train your dragon I think. The kids love that movie so much. I am glad that they are watching a movie. Now, I don't have to worry about the running around and screaming kids. All of them are so quiet concentrating on their movie lol.

I have to get up earlier because they asked me for a blanket. The heater is on but still feels so cold inside the house. I don't like the heater so high because we don't want to pay a big bill of electricity. Also when the heater is above 70 my nose start to dry out and it makes my nose bleed. So, we have to keep it on 68F.

New Case

I need to buy a new case for my daughter's new camera. I have to put a reminder on my phone the next time we go to the store. I keep forgetting to look then on the way back home I remember and it's already too late. So, Next time we go to the store I make sure that I look for it. Anyway I have been cleaning my kids closet and take out all the clothes that doesn't fit them anymore.

So now I have a big pile of clothes in my bedroom ready to be send to the Philippines. We are planning to clean out the backyard but it's too cold to get out there. Maybe we have to wait on a warmer day. We saw a very nice arbors at the store the other day and there is one particular arbor that I really like. I can use one in the backyard and one in the front the wooden arbors are really look good.

How nice it is to have one of those garden arbors. I always want to have one maybe someday. Anyway we don't have any plan for tomorrow yet. If the weather is going to stay this cold tomorrow we probably just spend the whole day inside the house.

Will Dance Again

It seems like I am getting into dancing lately. I am going to try this kind of workout everyday and see if it's going to work. I have to give the treadmill a break for awhile. I am getting bored hopping on the treadmill everyday. So, now I need to try some other workouts and dancing is seems to be more interesting to me nowadays.

I sweat more while doing dancing and I like it. I am enjoying it with the whole family. Yesterday I had at least 1 hour and half of dancing and it feels good. Aside from dancing I am doing a stomach crunches also. Hopefully this kind of workouts will help me lose weight.

Taking my Hobby to the Next Level

Guest post written by Bud Warlick

I've always been interested in birdwatching. It's something I've done since I retired, now that I've got the time. It's funny, the closer I started paying attention the more I noticed that the same birds come around at the same times each day! It's so interesting.

For example, I have this one robin that comes in at about 12 p.m. every day, then, there's a few jaybirds that come around shortly after, around 1 p.m., followed by a few crazy crows. Of course, they don't come around much this time of year since it's so I started thinking about how cool it'd be to have my own birdwatching web site, which I now have time to build since we're in the off-season so to speak. I'm seriously considering it, especially after seeing what has to I'll be able to show my family what I see, too. I'm sure they'd love it, and itd give me a chance to catalog them. Sounds win/win to me!

Hitting the clubs for New Year's

Guest post written by Heena Ansari

Even though I love my parents, I was a little relieved to get back to my apartment where I could just relax and not have to share a room with my 14-year-old sister. I'm also really excited to go out and hit some of the clubs for New Year's because I haven't been out with my friends since like the beginning of December because we've all been so busy with work and family stuff.

Somehow, I kind of became in charge of my circle of friend's New Year's plans, so I've been checking out what some of our favorite clubs are doing for the holidays. One night when I was online doing that a few days ago, I came across the website and after I looked through it, I signed up for the internet service at my apartment.

I have it narrowed down to a few different clubs that I'm going to run by my friends because we're only going to go to one for the NYE party because cover charges are so expensive for the holiday.

Just Got Home

I took my daughter to the dentist today and we need to get back there by next week. I am glad that I took her to the dentist now we know what need to be done on her teeth. It was a lot better than I thought. So by next week I am bringing her back there they need to take out some of her baby teeth.

She so awesome today and did not complain at all. While driving on the way home it was pouring I can hardly see the road. We got to this one spot that the road was all flooded. I hate driving on the weather like this. Right now the rain slows down for a few minutes and then start pouring again. what a day!

Baby Stuff

Finally I went to the attic yesterday and got rid of all the baby stuff. I keep most of my son's baby stuff like baby gate, potty training and more. We have all those Child Safety Gates before and now it's time to let them go hehehe. My kids are all big now and I am not planning to have more. So, I need to pack all this baby stuff and send it to the Philippines.

For all the mommies out there that needs a child safety gates visit They carry all the the gates and other safety stuff that you need for your little ones. Be safe and check out this website.

I will be folding clothes today hopefully I'll get it done before I pick up the boy from school. It's pouring outside and also freezing. It's really dark outside I hope that the rain will stop on time for the dismissal.

I am not completely done yet but, I am so happy for what I have accomplished in two days of cleaning. I had all the Christmas decoration put away in the attic. Now the house is back to normal.

New Year's Tradition Passed On

Guest post by Jewel Cole

Our family and friends get together to party every New Year's Eve and celebrate the coming new year. We have a large pot luck dinner, followed by great desserts. After everyone gets their fill of food we divide up into groups and play games and party.

We have a tradition of turning on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve show at 11:00 p.m. on Cannon Satellite TV every year. It's usually quite loud in our house so we turn the sound down on the television until count down time, then the sound is turned up. We all love watching the people in Times Square partying on the show, but at the same time we are happy not being in that crowd. Everyone starts counting down as soon as the ball starts its downward movement. At midnight we all yell, hug, kiss and have a toast.

Our kids now invite friends over on New Year's to watch the show and celebrate. They actually leave the sound up during the entire show and dance to the pop music. Overall it's a wonderful way to spend an evening with loved ones.

So I need to find a good timing when I call her. I hope to talk to her soon. I have a big day tomorrow so, I need a good night sleep. I have so much work to do around the house and my Christmas decorations are still up.


So happy to hear my father's voice tonight. I feel bad because he is sick he has fever I hope he feels better soon. The kids want to talk more but I am out of phone card. If I have time tomorrow I will stop by at the Filipino store and buy some phone cards. I miss my family in the Philippines so much. How I wish to talk to them each and everyday.

I have been back with my exercise this week. Tomorrow I will be doing my exercise after school. The teacher want me to help her tomorrow.

Fireplace Gas Logs

I thought we are having a whole week of warm weather. But, I was wrong once again my feet are freezing again and we need to bundled up whenever we go outside. I guess we better get that fireplace going then. We are still browsing around for Gas Logs. Now that it's cold again it makes me want to get that fireplace really start to fire up. Hubby wants to read more about about R. H. Peterson Real Fyre Gas Logs.

I actually like the Outdoor Gas Logs also and I am hoping that hubby will agree with me lol. I have been reading about Gas Log FAQs. We never use our fireplace before so I am kind of scared about the fire hehehe. But we need to be warm so we need to get on with it. We already bought a portable heater for our bathroom. Our bathroom is the coldest part of our house then second is the master bedroom. Now I want the family room to be warm we spend more time in the family room in any other part of our house. It was pouring in here today so I am pretty sure that is going to be so cold tomorrow.

I am hoping that I can get on with my routine once again. To much yummy food during the holidays and I did ate a lot. After we had dinner on New Years Eve our friend invited us to come over to their house for the fireworks. When we arrived at their house they serve a bunch of yummy filipino foods so here I go again. Now that is all done I need to concentrate on my daily workouts.

Done Finally

I finally spoke with somebody at the dentist office. I was on hold for so long grrrrr. Later I have to call the other dentist office if they receive the referral. I need to get this all done today since the dental appointment for my boy is tomorrow. I just don't understand why that lady that did not do the paper works back in December.

I can't believe what I did this morning we almost got late for school. My alarm was on and for some reason I just turn it off and went back to sleep.

Then I woke up with the sunlight coming through the window in our bedroom. I look at my clock it was already 7:25am oh mu god I jump off the bed and quickly went to the kids bedroom to wake them up. I talked to hubby I said I can't believe my alarm did not went off? He told me the alarm was fine, He said I turn it off and went back to sleep lol.
