Chatting With Sissy

It's almost midnight but I'm still wide awake because I'm chatting with my sister, my one and only sister. I miss her so much. I'm so proud of her because she's responsible and kind. May God allow me to go home to the Philippines this year so I can spend time with my family back there. I can't wait to bring them to places that they haven't been to yet. That' why I'm saving money right now so I can them lots of stuffs and splurge on many things when I got there. Keeping my fingers crossed..

Busy Day

I miss the get together at the church today. It was sponsored by the Filipino Group. I went to church yesterday and I sat beside Kuya Al and Ate Josie. They invited me for the gathering but I was so busy at work today. I didn't get home until two in the afternoon. I was too late already already because the gathering  started at eleven in the morning. I'll just try next time. I found out that they do this every fifth week of the month. So I think they're using  a Siegel pop up booth for their convenience. It's easy to set up and can be used over and over again. They also have their own booth every 4th of July with their own display of Filipino foods and products.

Allery And Asthma Season

I just read in our local newspaper today that the month of May, is allergy season. No wonder I have been sniffling and sneezing for quite awhile now. And even my husband has been coughing too. I'm just thankful that our kids didn't got it. Although, they cough and wheeze sometimes but not as bad as ours. Here in our place many people are more likely to get allergies because we are surrounded by redwood trees and plants.

Here are helpful tips to prevent allergies that I learned from our local newspaper ; The Triplicate:

  • Remove allergens such as mold or dust from the home. Dust mites, mold, and pet dander are the primary triggers for asthma and sinus congestion.
  •  Install HEPA filters in bedrooms. Encase both your pillow and mattresses in allergen-impermeable covers. Wash the bedding in your home every week in water that is hotter than 130 degrees F to further reduce dust mites and allergens where you sleep.
  •  Carpets are a perfect environment for dust mites and other allergens to fester in. Changing from carpet to hard floors will reduce the allergens that are harmful to your family. 
  •  Find an allergy specialist near you.
  •  Check local pollen and allergen levels. Stock up on seasonal allergy medications and antihistamines to be prepared during heavy allergy seasons. Limit exposure to outdoor allergens as much as possible, especially when pollen counts are high.
  •  Inspect your house for leaks. Allergens, mice, and cockroaches can enter very small cracks or holes in your home.
  •  For people with asthma, recognize the signs and symptoms of asthma and the importance of access to rescue medication. Learn how to administer an inhaler properly. 
  •  Nasal decongestants have been proven to actually trap bacteria, so it is recommended you do not take these unless you absolutely have to.

We're Done

Me and my husband has a nice chat while watching TV. We're just in snuggling and cuddling in the couch and watching our kids walking back and forth in front of us. We realized that our youngest baby is getting big already and it seems like yesterday when I was pregnant of her. How time flies so fast. My husband used to tell me that we need to have another baby but since he gets to stay home a lot now. He realized that it's not easy raising kids. He didn't realized that because he's often out of time doing fire assignments for 20 years of his life. Five years I'm staying at home with the kids. My husband is way older than me but he looks younger because he's using hair loss products to keep his hair grow and he's also physically fit. I love it that he's more matured because I feel like a baby because he's spoiling me all the time.


I know I'm a spender but whoever knows me think that I'm just an average shopper. My spending habit is not bad as the people I know who max out their credit cards just to get what they want. I only get what I want when I know I can afford to pay for it. Besides every time I want something, I work to earn the money for it. I do surveys, I do some product reviews that compensate me and I work part time. I am a resourceful person when it comes to saving money. Two weeks ago, I was selling purses to my friends that my other friend bought online. She got it for the wholesale price and we sell it here. I was able to sell seven items all in all. That's why I able to buy a nice and large Betty Boop Purse and a new croco wallet. It's like having it for free because I got a commission for the stuffs I sold. If you are resourceful you can find the best deals online such as affordable business card printing which we can use for our business and we can even get free advertising if you just now how to make a deal. You just have to research well and be knowledgeable.

Coach Lynn Bag

I'm sick in my stomach when I realized how much I spent for this month alone. I bought a new laptop then I new modem and router. I bought a diamond ring which I got the best deal.It used to be more than $1K but I got it for only $200 then now I bought this new Coach Lynn Bag. It's only $139 plus tax. It's used to be $358. I just can't resist when I found deals like that. When I spent this much I felt so irresponsible and unfair with my kids. My hubby spent more than I do but I haven't bought something expensive for the kids this month. I am crazy. I don't know if it's normal. But whenever I buy something, I felt like I need to buy my kids as valuable as I have. I'm planning to buy them Xbox Kinect but I have to wait till July 4th because I don't want to buy stuffs beyond what we have in the checking. I don't want to touch our savings because I don't want to run out of money again. We're poor but we save a little for the rainy days. And I promised to myself, that this is it. No more buying stuffs for me for awhile.

Tourists Are Coming To Town

Now that Summer is coming, I noticed that there are so many visitors in our town. When I visited my aunt in Super 8, I met these two nice couple and I found out that they came all the way from Canada. They are just doing a road trip and wanted to check out the Redwood Tress and the Drive thru tree in Klamath. I think road trip is cool especially if you have your own RV, just make sure that you have an rv insurance so that you are protected on that long travel. So far, I haven't  met someone who have an uninsured RV. RV is a pretty much expensive vehicle and that would be irresponsible if you didn't get it covered.

Tired and Headaches

I think I have  an eye problem because I've been having headaches lately. Probably because I often sleep late. I stayed up late watching my favorite shows, sometimes online shopping or sometimes blog hopping.  Then during the day, I didn't get the chance to take a nap. And now I am reaping all the consequences of my unhealthy actions. So I decided to quit watching movies so late and go to sleep at a decent hour. Health is wealth. When you're sick you won't be productive.

Quick And Fun Shopping

I am a mother of four kids and a doting wife to my husband. In other words, I am a homemaker. I am in charge of almost everything in the house but my husband helps me in all household chores and doing errands. I organized stuffs for the house and I will just inform my husband what we need. When it comes to my family, I'm very particular with their health, manners and hygiene. Most importantly, I'm the decision maker when it comes to buying stuffs around the house. Most of the time I do my shopping online except foods. With my very busy schedule, I prefer buying online. I don't have time to stand in line or going through clothes in the rack. With online shopping, life is much easier. And it's getting easier since I found out about
There are so many reasons why I think   ShopWiki is a cool place. It has  great shopping tool. First when I was in the mood of buying Western boots, I'm jumping  from one site to another looking for the best deal. In shopwiki, it's easier because they will do the searching for you from the customers feeback and consumers' rating toward a product.Most importantly, you can do a  comparison for all the prices. It helps a lot since you don't have to jump from one website to another. At Shopwiki shopping is fun and economical.  This website has been famous in so many countries such as France or in Ntherlands and many more. I can say that Shopwki is a big help for busy parent like.

Feast Of Our Lay Of Fatima

It was so inspiring joining the Portuguese celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. The mass started at seven o'clock. The songs were in their language. I don't understand the language but I love the music. Fr. Abel read the gospel in English and even his homily. After the mass, we had a mile of procession with the statue of Mama Mary. It made me cry because I miss doing this.I used to participate processions in the Philippines and this is first I do it again after so many years. I can feel how precious it is to spend with God. It helped me keep my feet on the ground and and always follow Mama Mary's virtue.

New Phone

In two months I will be qualified to upgrade for a new phone in my wireless plan. I'm debating between iPhone 3G or 4G, Blackberry Torch and smart phone htc. I'm asking around already which one has better service. I know that iPhone is more popular but I heard it freezes because it has too many apps. Others said that Blackberry Torch is much better because it has higher camera megapixel,easy to use and durable.But I'm looking towards the smart phone htc because its web browser is great and phenomenal. I like it because it looks durable compared to other smartphones. I'm excited for new phone but I can wait for two months so I can take advantage of the best price offer.

I love My DVR

Believe it or not we just added DVR to  our cable service. I can't believe it took me so long. I was just so busy during the past years  because my husband was still working and I do all the errands when he's not home. I was basically don't have time to even watch tv. But now that he's retired, I am able to sit down and relax. And finally got the chance to order for a DVR. The nicest thing that happened also was that our monthly bill was even reduced. They gave us a better deal because I recieved offers from Direct TV. They don't want to lose us as their customer that's why they offer us a deal we can't resist.

Early Bird

I woke up so early this morning at around 5 o' clock. I said a prayer first and then check my emails. I'm so happy because I saw my sister online. It's about 9pm there in the Philippines so they're still awake and was able to chat with them and saw them through the webcam. It always makes me feel great everytime I saw my family even on the webcam. My mom looks great as always, but my dad looks older now. My sister is really getting bigger also. The last time I saw her when I visited them, we had the same height but now she's taller than me. At least, she likes my skin complexion. She's annoyed with her acne problems. It's hard over there because it's dusty and the air is polluted. Oh well, at least our mom is there, she can always teach her with acne home remedies. It's more economical and safe. I'm sure she's not gonna about her skin problems soon after the treatment. I'm hoping that tomorrow we will be able to chat again. That's for this morning. Have a nice day everyone.

Prince William and "Princess Kate"

got this photo from
 Even though Kate is not born royalty, I will still call her Princess Kate. In my own opinion, based on the article written about her, I think she's a smart lady and she's going to be an asset in the royal family. I just hope that she will follow the footsteps of Princess Diana who spend her life helping the less fortunate. I hope that with her new role in the royal kingdom, this will inspire her to help the needy.
Prince William is now His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, the Earl of Strathearn and Caron Carrickfergus and Princess Kate is now Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, becoming the Countess of Strathearn and Baronness Carrickfergus.

Rod Model Builder

Here is a partial screenshot of my husband's new website. I just made it this week. It's just been a month since he retired and now he's getting bored. That's why he started building his rod models. His first project is the  Hurst Hairl Olds. He's very good with all the detailing and painting so I offered to make his own website so he can document his projects online. I helped him with the layout and and he came up with the name which is Rod Model  Builder. I am going to read  the reviews so I will learn important ideas on how to improve the traffic in his website. Who knows one day, we will be able to earn money from this project.
