INetU

For my two days training in a Chiropractic clinic, I learned a lot of things. And I realized that working in a medical clinic is one of the most fun and exciting jobs for me. You get to know many people and the tasks are not difficult. You just have to pay attention, be polite and sincere. Most of the transactions are made through the computer. You have to encode all the information during that day. It's amazing how computers and electronics can make our lives convenient sometimes. If you want to build your own business, just make sure that you choose a hosting provider that is good in managed hosting such as INetU.

Gratitude

Today I cooked egg rolls  for my friends. It is my way of showing my gratitude for their kindness to me. I realized that this is probably better than giving material things. I gave ten egg rolls to my friend Heather. We're not super close but one time when my friend Pavi had a birthday party, she only got few egg rolls so I said, I will make it up to them.  Besides, she will move to another state tomorrow. I feel good that I'm able to cook for her before she moves. Then I gave another ten to my friend Denise. She's always sweet to us. I've been planning to make egg roll for her for a long time. At least, I finally made it.
When I dropped my son to school, one of the teachers saw Sophie eating an egg roll, and she asked if I can give her if I have some extra. Yes of course. I love to give. So maybe later I give her some. If not, for sure tomorrow.

Fashionable Boots

In this part of the world, Winter is always four months out of the year. So everyone here always wear boots. I have a collection of Winter boots, mostly leather. But I need to invest in dav rain boots.I just love the colors and the variety of stylings.Even with wearing some of my fashionable dresses, they would fit find. I love the patterns. My favorite includes the Leopard design. It is adjustable with its corset lacing at the back. Most importantly, because its textured sole it will keep me from slipping from this sudden downpours that we have here locally.

Terrible

I'm dead tired last night. I got out from work at 6:30 in the evening ten I went straight to the grocery store to buy vegetables for dinner and a rack of pork and beef ribs. When I got home, my baby Sophie hug me so tight. She missed me so much. This working mom idea won't probably last long. Anyways, after I cooked dinner, ate and fed the kids, I just went straight to bed. I'm so tired to even clean my face. That is why I woke up with terrible blackheads. Now I need blackheads remover to get rid of these awful blemish in my face. I should have clean and tone my face before I went to bed.

Annoying Pimple

I woke up this morning with this itchy and irritating pimple in my back and in my neck.I rarely got pimple in my face, only when I sleep too late or I ate too much greasy foods. I think it's the good weather here in Crescent City. I remember when I was in the Philippines, where we live is dusty and hot, I got acne all the time. In fact my brother who is still there is complaining about his severe acne in his neck and his back. He's embarrassed to go to the beach because of his skin condition. He needs to learn more about his skin problem before it will get into his face. He needs to find out what are the causes and solutions so that he will get rid of these annoying pimples.

Student of the Week


I was teary eyed when my daughter went up in the stage to receive her Student of the Week Award. How time flies so fast. I can still remember my feeling when I found out that I was pregnant of her,the first time when I laid my eyes on her. And now she's already in kindergarten. I'm not trying to be conceited but I can tell that she's a smart girl. She has a good memory. She can comprehend new ideas quickly. I'm so proud of her. All I wish and pray is that she will grow into a very good person,responsible and modest. May god protect her in any kind of danger. I love her so much more than anything else in this world.

Hormone of the Night

Let's talk about melatonin or what you called the " Hormone of the Night". This is quite an  interesting compound that is produced by the pineal gland located in the center of the brain.It was discovered as an antioxidant in 1993.It acts as a synchronizer of the biological clock. We can also find melatonin in foods such as vegetables, grains and meats but in very small amounts. We can find in the market, some melatonin supplements .They are available in capsules, tablets, liquids or transdermal patches. But most doctors don't recommend nor prescribed this. It's probably because the physiological roles of this compound are still unclear despite almost fifty years of research. Although some people really used this to be able to sleep longer even though they're not as strong as prescription sleep aids.

Bloated

It's foggy today so I just stayed inside the house all day. I'm super busy because I've been picking after the kids' mess. Even though they try to clean up their bedrooms when they're told but it's different when I did it myself. I put the clothes in the closets and finished my son's chart for his class. I've been eating like crazy today too. I ate four piece of cake, bagel with peanut butter and I had barbecue tri tip for breakfast, bratwurst for lunch and barbecue chicken and rice for dinner. I think I drank two cans of soda. That's why I feel so bloated. I tried exercising by using my stair climbing. I still feel so heavy. I think I need to use a weight loss product now because many of my favorite clothes  don't fit me anymore. What a drag. It is disappointing seeing my tummy bulging.Ahh I need to take this diet and exercise more seriously.

Stay Connected

Being a full time mom of four kids, I am busy as a bee. I woke up early to help the girls with their clothes and hair. They know how to dress themselves but I still make sure that they go to school neat and properly dressed. Then my husband drop them at school on his way to work. If the baby is still sleeping, I took the chance to clean the bedrooms or finished my online chores. At about noon, I drop my son to preschool then pick my daughter at around two then my son at around three. I do a lot of driving. During the weekdays, I'm usually outside the house and always driving around. That is why I have to get a Bluetooth headset so that even though I'm driving I will still stay connected. It is important that I won't miss my calls because I have a hard time returning their calls because of my super busy schedule.

Poor Little Man

My son woke up so early this morning. Like about 5 o 'clock in the morning. He asked me to go with him downstairs because he is so sick and that he needs a medicine. He's referring about his gummy bear multivitamin.He thinks that his vitamin in his medicine. I was still sleepy so I told him to drink some water because it must be just his throat. He drank water but 20 minutes later he got up. He told me that he's going downstairs to get a medicine. Right there and then, I woke up away. He sleep with his diapers only so I put clothes on him and socks. I woke up his dad. We just lay him down in our bed and daddy got his vitamin. Then we went back to sleep.After 30 minutes he threw up. He woke me up and told me "See mommy, I told you I'm sick".I feel so bad. My poor baby. After which he went back to sleep. He's resting now and I'm praying he feel better when he wakes up.

Keeping The Music Down

I need to use headphones specifically a wireless one because having three energetic toddlers in the house,I can no longer hear the music and the sound that I wanted to listen. And not just that, most of the time I can only watch TV or use the Internet when they're sleeping . That's why I need to keep the music down or put it on mute completely. Having a headphone is the solution to this problem. I found nice selections at the The Source. They have Earbud Headphones which are perfect for the iPod, iPad and iPhone. Compact Headphones for the kids who love music. It has a sound restrictor that control the volume to protect their eardrum from excessive noise.I will get one for my son. Full Size Headphones are perfect for watching TV or game.Noise-Cancelling Headphones which enable us to listen the music without any distraction from outside noise. And they have the Wireless & Bluetooth for portable covenience.

 

Great Job Good Job

According to Aristotle, "The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.". If there's one thing that I'm proud of myself is that I was able to finished college. I finished B.S. in Electronics and Communication Engineering.  Even though  I haven't practised this profession for a long time, I don't have regrets because I know I have accomplished something for my parents and for myself. My parents ultimate goal for us their children is to be able to earn a diploma.It gives them pride and joy being able to sustained their kids through college amidst all the trials and hardships they've encountered. Now that I'm here in America, it's my greatest wish that I will be a pursue a degree here also. I'm gearing towards taking a medical course. I'm debating between Nursing or Pharmacy Technician. As I searched for health care job postings, I noticed that these two have the most number of hiring. I can't wait till my parents will get here so that I can start going to school and start building my career.  

Can't Resist

Wow 16 more days before Halloween and yet I'm still debating which costumes I want the kids to wear.  I have a closet full of costumes for them because I keep their costumes in one place. You know how toddlers are, they want to wear costumes any day they want. My daughter has all kinds of princess dresses. Last year, I bought seven costumes during the after Halloween sale that's why it's cheap.It is like less than $5 each costume. If I remember right, I got a Ninja Costume for $1.75 only. I'm just lucky because the kids don't mind wearing the costumes we had already so I don't have to buy new ones. But last Wednesday, I can't help but buy this cute Superman costume for my son from Old Navy. It's way too cute to resist. Besides I love buying costumes from Old Navy because it's high quality.The kids wore them over and over again and still in good condition. Plus it's machine washable compare to the costumes we purchased in Walmart, they need to be hand washed only.
My daughter wants to be a Snow White, Bianca as a witch,Sophie as Minnie Mouse or a little Snow White and Eric will be Superman.I guess I'm set, and I can't wait.

To The Fullest

Life is short so let's live life to the the fullest.What living life to the fullest really mean to all of us? I noticed that each of us has its own interpretation of living life to the fullest. For example, this one friend of mine dedicates her life in helping her family and other people. She's happy about that.She's amazing because if her family is happy, she's happier.And another friend of mine, enjoy her life by buying anything she wants. She don't care about her credit, she don't care about going to school. All she wanted is fun, clothes, purses and shoes and how she looks. She will spend money to make herself looks good. Why? Because she thinks that life is short and she needs to enjoy it. On the other hand, I, myself is aware of the fact that life is short. I'm always amazed how time flies so fast. But I have my own aspect of living life to the fullest, that is going to school, get a diploma, get married and have kids. I'm pretty much in the stage of life I expected it to be but I still have a long list of goals. The only thing that I mistakenly interpret the "living life to the fullest" saying is my indulgence with food. I don't drink diet soda, I don't like non fat foods. I love eating foods with all the good stuff in it and that includes the fats and sugar. I know it's something not really good but I live to the fullest by eating the food that I love. Anyways, if ever I will have weight issues in the future, I can click here for guidance and help. There's always a solution to any problem.

Wordless Wednesday/Exploring the Water

Here in Crescent City, we are blessed with beautiful camping areas close to the river. Whenever we have a fairly good weather on the weekends, we usually have a picnic by the river. This one was taken at Jedidiah Smith River.



My 1 year old Sophia was amazed with the water and was determined to be in the water.


First, she touched if the water is cold :-)


wondering if mommy will let her to


She had the best time of her life when I allowed her to play in the water .

Am I Being Photophobic?

I realized lately that I can't stand the reflection of the light towards me especially when I'm driving. Of course it does hurts our eyes especially if we're not wearing sunglasses. But I noticed that my reaction is different.After exposing in a very bright light, I felt a pain in the middle of my eyes then I feel like throwing up. So I'm debating if I have  to go to see an Ophthalmologist or seek a migraine treatment. I'm really scared having a migraine because I know how bad it is. Some of my friends woke with a migraine. That's terrible. I just hope that I'm not getting a migraine. I think it's worse than being photophobic.

Stress and My Health

Finally, Sophie fell asleep already. I can at least take a little break. I have five kids here in the house. Bianca's sister Jet visits her today and last night she peed in the bed so I have to do extra laundry today.The household chores are not big deal to me, it's when the kids are fighting and screaming. When they started doing it, I can feel a severe pain at the back of my neck, my back hurts and I feel a severe warmth in my face. When you have kids, stress can't really be avoided. I believe that laughter is the best medicine.  I am a person who loves to laugh but when I'm stressed, it's   just hard to even smile. I need an acne skin care because I can see pimples popping out in my face. If there's one thing that I won't let this stress caused is looking like ten years older.That's why right now, I'm just relaxing here with baby Sophie and I just let the kids ride their bikes in the garage.

Maria Pema At Forty

Maria Pema is one of my closest friends here in Crescent City. We get along right away when we found that we both came from the same city in the Philippines, then we went to the same school ( University of Southeastern Philippines). We called each other  "unbiological sisters". People think that we are best friends but we don't call each other like that because she has her own circle of friends and her own best friends and I have mine too. We argue in so many things. She don't like my being tactless sometimes. I don't know what I don't like about her, all I know that I disagree wit her many times when we're together. And I hate it when she is annoyed when I'm too pushy. But then when she's not around I realized that I like her because with her I can express myself freely.She laugh at my stubbornness . I think she likes my sense of humor because she "lol" with my silly jokes. And I like it when she thinks that I'm smart even though she is irritated when I can't comprehend easily. And yeah we can talk anything under sun. Also, what I like about our friendship, that even though people are saying stuffs against each other, we stood still for each other, that knowing that she said these stuffs against me or I said these stuffs against her in the past, what we matters most is the present. And I think because we both know that we made mistakes and we said sorry without making excuses that is why we remain strong. I think we are friends because when things aren't going well in our lives, we can just sit down together, watch ABS CBN shows and talk about the Philippine celebrities, make fun of them, we felt better afterwards. Oh yeah,we also get along well because we both don't like Kris A.
That is me and Marie. She just had her 40th birthday party last night. It was great. I had fun. To Marie, I wish you more love, peace of mind and good health.
Keep smiling....keep shining.....just know that you can always count on me ..hehehehe
