Gifts

Christmas time is coming pretty soon. I have to start buying gifts for my family and friends. It helps when you know what they want or what they need. One of my friend's kids wanted Gears of War 3 beast mode for his xbox. I still have to price it out. As for my friends, I have a stock of perfumes,colognes and lotions so that's what I will wrap for them.Who don't use those stuffs everyday. As for my family in the Philippines, I tam thinking of sending them money. And for my kids, I am planning of buying them one toy each. I don't want them to get use to have lots of toys every Christmas. They have so much toys already and most of them are pretty much wasted. I'm thinking that they will appreciate it even better if they only have one toy.

Economic Situation

One thing the economic crisis has taught me, is to be not complacent. Who could have expect that our economy will be this bad. It sucks because the effects of the economic situation really hit us hard. Imagine that, you are already charge every time you use your ATM card. And it's been eight months since my husband, he still didn't get his full monthly pension. I guess the federal don't have any budget at all. If you look around your neighborhood, you can see foreclosure homes or rental homes because the owner moved to a different place where there are better job opportunities. The important thing about renting is to consider those homes that are for rent by owner because they are than likely cheaper than any other rental.

Brighter Side

It is pretty much a not so bad day. Besides an annoying day at work, besides not being able to get what I need in the SS office. I am trying to look at the brighter side of any situation, making sure that it won't affect me negatively. In life, you will meet different kids of people who either helps you to suceed or wo will push you down. But as long as you know yourself, you will be able to achieve your dreams with flying colors.

Organizing

I'm in the mood of organizing stuffs in the house especially the kids' . First thing this morning, I cleaned up the girls' room. I put all thier barbies in one bag and my sons toy car collection in one bag. As I go through to the toy buckets, I found lots of stuffs that shouldn't be there such as dirty socks or cups and clothes. Then I also found lots of their baby pictures. I found my scrapbooking stuffs too. My youngest is already two years but I haven't finished her baby book yet. I have to make a scrapbook of the things my babies made when their wee ones such as drawings or certificates from school. I even save my baby shower invitations for remembrance. it's so nice to keep these stuffs because it something we can show to our kids how they are when they're still babies. After I finished all the photobboks, I will be so relieved.

So Fast

I cannot really believe how time flies so fast now. I mean I even wonder if the earth is turning faster now as it's used to be.It seems wierd to me. I'm sure science has nothing to dom with it. I don't think the clock is ticking faster. It's juts that things are going way too fast for me. It must be because I'm so busy that's why things are just happening like a snap of finger . This morning, I woke up early to prepare the girls lunch for school and to fix their hair. Then I cleaned their room. The next thing I know, it's about time to get ready for work. I was in fact late already. It's hard to be on time. When I got home, I took a nap for 5 minutes and play a lil bit with my kids, then it's time to prepare dinner. In a way I kinda like it because I don't have time for boredom. But there are so many things that I have to do, but I don't have time. But the thing is, I cannot keep on complaining about it. I guess I  just have to enjoy each second of my life, dedicate it to my family and live life according to God's guidance. In that way, I am doing something worthwhile in this fast life.

A little something for Buffy fans with The Ringer


Guest post written by Alex Souther

Back when I heard months ago that Sarah Michelle Gellar was filming a new show, I decided right then and there that I would watch it. I loved all the work that she did on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I had a feeling after I saw the first commercial on TV that this role might end up being pretty physical and have some good fight scenes in it too. Obviously that, or her pretending to fight when a stunt double does it for her, is one of her strong suits because she has tons of experience doing that when she played a vampire slayer, or rather THE vampire slayer!
Yes, I am a Buffy fan. So I felt obligated to watch The Ringer and that's what I've been doing since it premiered. While I was online reading a review about the pilot, I ran across some info on internet service providers in my area. After I looked through it, I changed the internet service at my apartment.
I did like that fight scene that she had with that mystery hit man. That's the Sarah Michelle Gellar that we all know and love! I have a feeling that there's going to be way more fight scenes like that coming up this season.

Steve Jobs Died :-(

At age 56, Steve Jobs died after battling with cancer. He's a magnificent guy. He's the co-founder of Apple. Me and my husband like him a lot because he's a great guy. My husband listen to his speeches and you can really tell how down to earth he was. May he rest in peace. He's a big loss to this country and the whole world.

Past Time

Yesterday I went home early but I missed the most important stuffs that I need to do. I missed doing one of my assignments and I supposed to call the financial advisor for my application in Southwestern Oregon Community College. All I was doing yesterday was watching TV with my little ones and then arrange all the clothes. I love checking on my clothes once in awhile. I can't believe I have accumulated so much. There are quite that still have tags on it. Those that still have tags I set them aside because I will give them away. I don't know what it is but women loves shopping. There's no such thing as too much clothes or shoes. Yesterday when I arrange all my dress clothes and casuals, I realized I have too much. And I just bought two new pants from Victoria Secret this week. I love them, I love the fit so I don't regret. Once in awhile we have to pamper ourselves :-).
