Happy Christmas shopping

After spending time with my mother in-law and cousin by marriage, here I am trying to clean up the house and at the same time checking my email. I can say that having family over is really enjoyment with my little one and of course for us. I hope they can visit us more often so that my kids will know their aunties and cousins enough. Because I think if my children can only see them once a year they cannot really know them really well. As if I know my uncle and unties when I was a kid, I know my unties and uncle very well and I never forgot how good persons they are until the rest of my life.Anyhow, be safe if you traveling going home and if you are in shopping hope you find great deal and enjoy your Christmas shopping.

outstanding renovations

Recently we have been working hard to complete the renovations of our home in anticipation of the arrival of family members who will be with us for Thanksgiving this year. Just in the last few weeks, we have painted the bedroom of our youngest daughter, my husband's office, and the upstairs hallway. My husband has also been replacing the cover-plates of electrical outlets and light switches. As we have one day before the rest of our family members arrive, today I expect that he will do some more touch-up painting and install some door insulation that he got last week. As I see all of the work that my husband does when company is coming, I think it might be good to have people over more often. That way we will be more motivated to complete some of the outstanding renovations of our home.

wonderful city

This weekend my husband is traveling to Memphis, Tennessee, while a family friend is traveling to Chicago. Although Memphis is a nice place to visit with family, I really think Chicago is a wonderful city. There are people in Chicago from all over the world. As a result, you can do things in Chicago and have experiences there that would be difficult to find in some of the smaller cities in the country. For example, I spent nearly half a year in Thailand while my husband served in the Peace Corps. While there, I knew that you could get really good massages all over the country. Here in the USA, you can get a deep tissue massage in chicago, but not in too many other places in the country.

Still watching news about the Typhoon Yolanda in the Phiplippines

I have been watching the news about the typhoon Yolanda. It has been a week now since it happened and people in my hometown are starving even many countries give donation and relief goods. Now, I am not the only one asking and wondering why it takes so long to distribute this relief to people who are victim of typhoon Yolanda. This evening I watched the news there were so many relief at the airport in Cebu and the newscaster is saying that people who are victim of the typhoon are patiently standing in line even the weather was hot. In addition, I haven't talked to my father and sisters, brother's yet I hope them doing okay.

Supper typhoons in the Philippines.

Hope everybody is safe in my hometown.
Since I cannot contact my family in my hometown, I tried to watch the lattes news in the Philippines, about the typhoons. Tacloban city is already flooding I hope everybody is safe. I did not see any lattes update about my hometown. My hometown is three hours away from Tacloban city and it seems like no more telecom communication in my hometown. As I have reads on the web news the winds at 235 kilometers (147 miles) per hour, with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph). I am not sure how strong it is but as I've remember when I was 7 or 8 years old signal number 3 was very scary. Our house was mostly wet and ruined it was very difficult time as if I can recall. Hope it did not happen again to my father and sisters and of course to my niece nephew and relatives.

particular friend

We all have friend’s in life but all of them has its own participation or a character that contributed in your life. But in hundreds of them one will shine, it may not be your best friend to be called but a buddy that always been there to talk with, on any kind of drama in life. So then I have this one particular friend that happen to talk all the time she is married with an ex-military guy she often telling me a story about her husband experiences during those time of being on a military and war. I will be honest I haven’t care or given any attention to those people who give their lives in our country as I am too much busy on earning money but it doesn’t mean I don’t respect or thanking them for what they have done for the sake of our motherland which why I have my freedom of speech because of all their sacrifices. My manners was change after hearing the story of my friends husband how they sacrifices their lives in exchanges of millions of people that unfortunately most of us is taking it for granted as if everything what they’ve done is just normal. Of course we heard a lot about those military guy’s through the news but mostly when they are already died on a battle. I just found one day myself surfing on internet about them and my heart milt and my tears started to drop for the families who lost their sister, brother and father and I saluted those who dedicated their lives and continue to serve their people. Please give your 1 minute to pray for their safety that they will come home back safety to their love one’s.

Since the start of the school year, I have been thinking about getting music lessons for our school-age daughters. They are both interested in music, but are not a particular instrument. I would generally propose the piano, violin or guitar for someone who cannot seem to choose an instrument. Although getting a piano can be expensive and requires significant space in your home, both a violin and a guitar can be much more affordable and easier to manage. Indeed, you can obtain new epiphone acoustic guitars for prices less than two hundred dollars. And a new guitar requires very little storage space.

From our trick or treating last night!

My kids will really enjoyed this file of candies.
