Christmas Day

I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays - let them overtake me unexpectedly - waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why, this is Christmas Day!

Thanks for the article from Isaiah Gaines
I was considering joining a gym but couldn't decide which one because there isn't one that is really close to my house. I mean I don't want to be paying (way-to-much) a month and never go because it is too far of a drive. The other day I was surfing channels on our Directv and found all these exercise channels that I didn't even know we had! I ended up trying a 15 minute ab builder. It was perfect because it was just the amount of time to feel like I had a workout, but not too overwhelming. It is kind of hard to do a 45 minute workout in the living room with a three year old running through the room. Little did I know how much that 15 minutes would do! I could barely get out of bed this morning my abs were so sore. I am thinking if I keep this up, I will be in bikini mode for our beach vacation. The best part is that I am not paying any extra and I don't have to leave my house.

3D movie

Will its been 3years now since the last time I and my husband go for date? The last we go that was in 2008 when my second child was 3moth old. We went to Memphis Tennessee where my parent in-law live and drop my two little angel and we went to st. Martin for a week. After that we did not have a chance to travel again due to many circumstance that we did not predict that can happen. Perhaps last week while my parent in-law was here my husband and I take an opportunity to watch a 3D movie and it was fun. That was our first time that we watch 3D on cinema and after that we went to a nice restaurant and that was really fun. I just remember when I first meet holding hands while walking having conversation without disturbing kids.

flowers free delivery,

Christmas is only 11 days away! Much of our holiday shopping is complete, but a few big gifts remain outstanding. We were fortunate to have my in-laws and both of my husband's grandmothers visiting with us after the Thanksgiving holiday. During their visit, I felt that I got to know each of them better and I and to get something special for both of the grandmothers. The question is, what do you get for 85 and 93 year old women who appear to have everything that they could ever want?
As the window for getting something that can be delivered on time grows short, I still have not picked-up anything for my in-laws. Recently I learned that there are options to give flowers free delivery, which would arrive just in time for the holiday. I can tell by the clothing worn by the ladies that they both like flowers. Thus, it may be the way to go. I am sure that if I include a nice card, perhaps with a recent photograph, they will both be happy. So, maybe I will hop online and place an order this weekend.

Need cheap phone card to call Philippines.

It 8:41 now here in the evening I just put my two little angel in their bed. Now that I’m a bit free I am try to chat my cousin in facebook. Since it has been a while now since the last time we have chatted. Oh! I really miss my family back in the Philippines. I love to call my father at this moment perhaps I don’t have budget to buy a phone card. I wish my father has internet at home so that I can chat him every day. As you now the other day I bought a lottery ticket and hopping that I can win. But I guess buying lottery ticket is not my luck. But I will probably buy when the jackpot prize increases. And hope that I’m the next jackpot player.

software development

Have you ever needed to hire someone to perform a task on your behalf? I find that hiring contractors or consultants of any kind can be a very challenging endeavor. The challenge generally relates to the fact that unless you have significant experience hiring for a particular task, it is difficult to ascertain what is reasonable and what is out of line.
My husband, who is a corporate attorney, was telling me recently that he was working with a client who needed to hire software developers to produce products to be utilized in certain overseas markets. The client was having trouble selecting offshore software vendors because he had never previously hired anyone to perform such services. Fortunately, there are services available that focus on the analysis of software vendor metrics. . In utilizing such services, a person or company that is interested in offshore software development can readily measure which developers are more efficient. Armed with such information, one can have comfort that it is interviewing the right entities. This type of service greatly enhances software vendor management and selection. Managing software vendors can be a very difficult process in the best of situations. Having access to a service that has previously analyzed the metrics for offshore software development is a great way to increase efficiency in the selection and eventual management of software developers.
