A Day in the Park

Our weekend went well last week. We went to the park and have Jacob play on the playground. We had our dinner there before hubby went to work. Sunday night was awesome, too! We camped out in our backyard and had fun cooking hotdogs on fire. We put up a tent for me to sleep in, while my boys slept on their cots :-)!

Anyway, this is my share for KID this Monday. Join us and have some fun by posting photos of your kids. Click the badge below for more cute entries!

Guilty or Not?

Last week during Easter egg hunting at the park. I almost lost my iPhone. My friends and I are waiting for the playground gate to open so the kids can go in and find eggs. While waiting I was checking my FB to see whether a friend returned my call. After checking it, I put my iPhone at its holster so I don't need to hold it. The holster holds my iPhone perfectly and it is impossible for someone to snatch it. Few minutes later, I thought of checking my husband to see if he had eaten his lunch yet. To my surprised, the phone is gone and I panicked! I told my friend about it, and she started calling my phone. She said; the phone is ringing but nobody's answering; so she tried again and a woman answered "hello" and then hang up! So, whoever got my iPhone gave me no choice but to get some help. Good thing there was a cop nearby. I talked with the cop and asked if there any way I can get my iPhone back. He asked the number of my lost phone and started calling it. A friend of mine on the other hand was still trying to get hold of the woman who got my iPhone. Finally the woman answered again and was about to hang up, but when my friend handed her phone to the cop, the woman got scared; so she talked to the cop and told the cop where she was? That woman was there few feet away from us! The cop headed to her direction mad! I didn't follow the cop but watched him talk to the said woman. I can tell that she was trying to explain where she got it and that was a lie! That made me think that this woman wanted to keep my phone for herself! And how in the world she got my phone? There were so many people at the park that day; and she was probably standing next to me, bumped into me and snatched it. I am so glad that I was so calmed that time; I got my phone back...thanks to the cop who did his job which is to protect and help people.

After the egg hunting, this woman followed us on the way home, upset and saying that we are accusing her of stealing my iPhone! I said, I didn't say anything bad to the cop, I just told him that "whoever got my phone is not answering it....and that there is no way I could have dropped my iPhone because the holster is holding it very tight! I, myself is having hard time taking it out of the holster. And if in case I dropped it, I could have heard or felt it on my foot." But "no"...it was stolen...that is our conclusion. Anyway, she was mad and wouldn't listen to what we were saying, so we just ignored her and left for we don't want a fight! But we said, "thank you first. Then, she saw the same cop and started complaining about us. Whatever the cop was saying to her, we don't have any clue. All we know is that she is guilty as charged, lol!

Okay, after that my son and I went to Chick Fillet for lunch. While waiting for my son to finish playing on the playplace, I thought of checking if there any missed call during the time when my phone was under the woman's hand. To my surprised again, somehow she managed to blocked all the incoming calls! Well, another proof that she intended to keep my phone to herself! How did she do that? I do not know! I don't even know how to do that kind of stuff yet since I am lazy to read the manual. I am also being lazy adding my friends phone numbers in my contact lists! I was giving her the benefit of the doubt, but that was replaced with the concrete proof that she stole my phone! To me and my friend and the cop, she is indeed GUILTY! What do you think?

1. She didn't answer the phone the first time, then answered the second time and hang up, and third answered the phone again and was about to hang up after saying "hello."
2. Lied about where she picked up or got it.
3. Was upset.
4. Blocked all incoming calls.
5. Complained to the cops about us.

Jake's Egg Hunting on Easter

This morning, my friends and I together with our boys woke up early today to go to the Easter Egg Hunt here in Heartland community. We went there early because we don't want to be late during the registration. The registration starts at 9am, but the actual games and activities didn't start till 10am, so the boys (Jacob and Aaron) had the chance of playing before the egg hunting begins. They had fun running around chasing each other together with their friends and classmates. The even rolled down the hill! Around 10:15am, the face painter lady arrived and started painting kids faces; good thing we were the fourth on the line. Jake had an Easter egg painted on his face while Aaron had a baseball and cap...they look so cute! After that, they join the games where they did the bear walk, walking backwards, and other. We were surprised they didn't have many games this year. Anyway, the egg hunting begins at 11:35am...and they had a blast though they didn't find the golden egg :-).

I Love Being In Love

You Are Right Brained in Love

When it comes to love, you go with your gut not with your head.

You have an open heart. You fall in love easily and get hurt just as easily.

You are spontaneous with relationships. You go with the flow and don't worry about the future.

You are romantic, empathetic, and caring. More than most people, you really love being in love.

A Good Start and Signs

My son started his school this week and so far he is doing well. He loves going to school, meeting new friends and teacher and most of all is very excited to learn new things at school each day. Hubby and I are very impressed with him, Jacob for he wakes up early in the morning preparing himself by dressing himself up, and making sure that everything is in his backpack before leaving home. It's been four days now, and he still has the same excitement ever time he goes to school. I love that his school is just a walking distance from our home, there I don't need to drive him off to school or pick him up. He loves to go home without us picking him up..... for it make him feel independent, confident and boosts his self-esteem. Everyday, he learn new thing sand we are indeed also excited for him.

7 Tricks of the Trade for Removing Pet Odors

If you are a pet owner you know all about pet odors. Sometimes it seems no matter how clean you are you can still smell that smell! You feel like you have used every cleaner you have available and nothing has worked. It just keeps coming back! Here are some simple tricks to remove pet odors:

Top Tips for Removing Pet Odors – For Good!

1. The most important thing you need to do is treat the area right away. The odors and stains are easier to get rid of when they are fresh. You can start by absorbing as much of the liquid as you can, if it is a urine odor.
2. You should avoid using ammonia as a cleaner for the problem area. Ammonia sometimes smells similar to the pet odor and it will not deter the animal from re offending in the same spot.
3. Sprinkle the problem area with baking soda. Let it sit overnight and vacuum it in the morning. You may have to repeat this process 3 or 4 times, maybe more, before the smell is gone. If you are treating a carpet, sprinkle the entire carpet with baking soda making the coating much heavier in the problem spots. Again, repeat this until the smell is gone.
4. Vinegar is also effective in eliminating unwanted pet odors. Add 1 cup of white vinegar to the washing machine when you wash our pet’s bedding and blankets. Carpets and fabrics can be sprayed with 4:1 water to vinegar mixture for odor elimination. For a spot that has a strong odor you can soak the spot with the mixture then let it dry. The vinegar smell will go away shortly after the area is dry.
5. For a smelly litter box, sprinkle baking soda inside the box. Baking soda is natural and will not harm your cat. The baking soda will absorb the odor before it escapes.
6. Use Febreeze to freshen up fabrics, couches, carpets and anything else your pet may have been in contact with.
7. After you have cleaned the problem area, let it air dry. Avoid using a steam cleaner or a blow-dryer, heat will set the odor and stains. Once the odor is set, it makes the job of eliminating the odor almost impossible.
If you can smell the odor but have no idea where it is coming from, use a black light to illuminate the problem area. You will have to shut the room lights off and turn on the black light. It will show the urine stains and you can mark them with a piece of chalk so you know where they are when you turn your lights back on. Hopefully this will have you in a fresh smelling and feeling home in no time.

Nothing Can Stop Me From Blogging!

It's time to post some updates on this blog before I lose its PR. It is down from PR2 to PR1 now and I feel very sad! I know the very reason why Mr. G did it! I have been very lazy updating this blog due to the fact that PAYU2Blog stopped giving this blog a task for few months now. I don't really know the reasons why? I tried to contact them asking them why, but I didn't get any response from them. After trying three times, I decided to give up. Since then, I lost interest on posting anything, but memes. Can yo blame me? A couple of months later, I stopped posting at all...not even memes!

Then, lately, I finally came to my senses, I wouldn't let anybody or anyone destroy my passion for blogging. It is part of my life now and it's like my personal journal. I will now start writing again whether it gets paid post or not. I thought of eventually using blogspot again after the domain url expires.

CC: As a Daughter

Just before hubby left for work this afternoon, I asked him how he sees me as a daughter. Honestly, I was kind of shy to ask this question, but I have to do it. I took a deep breath first then pop up the question, lol! His first word: was your are an "awesome" daughter! I like his answer, but not really happy about it. Why? Because I wanted a more detailed answer :-). When he saw that I wasn't that satisfied, he replied in detailed.

He said that he was touched by how forgiving I am. He think that he can't imagine any person can forgive parents who gave him/her away after birth to grandparents. I didn't know my story as baby till I turned 8 year old. But even then, I didn't feel any anger or hatred against my parents. What happened a long time ago is gone and I understood that maybe my mother experienced a baby blue or postpartum depression.

Anyway, hubby said that I love my parents so much despite of that phase in my life. I still want to help them, support them, think of them and be with them. I don't know why, but that is what I feel. Whatever happened, I have already forgiven then...they are my family and I wouldn't be where I am today if it is not for them.

Pink Friday: Pink Roses

This photo was taken last year on Valentines Day. Hubby bought me a bouquet of flowers with card and chocolates. I love the flowers the best for he seldom bring me some because I told him long time ago not to worry about flowers for me for any occasion; he was obedient, lol. Now, I always wish that he would bring me flowers again even without occasion just like he always do. Oh well, I could only wish :-(...Anyway, here is my entry this week for PF.

CC: As His Wife

Though I already know what my husband thinks of me as wife, I still had to ask him on this one :-). The first thing he said was: I am a brave person. Brave to leave my immediate family and live in a foreign land. Brave to have gone through many surgeries peacefully and calmly...and without fear. Then, second: A passionate and caring wife. I like to cuddle and kiss him on his cheeks....and he loves it though he is the opposite of me most of the time :-). He calls me 'the best cook'; he eats whatever I serve him. A considerate person who thinks of other people's feelings. Even though he made the same mistake twice or thrice, I still forgave him....and he loves me for being a forgiving and trusting wife. Doting mother to our son. And most of all, his very "best friend." He can tell me everything without being judgmental...and vice versa. What about you? Tell us what your spouse think of you.

Outdoor Advertising Is Not Primitive

Outdoor advertising is one of the most effective ways to reach and target customers and clients. It is always visible, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Outdoor advertising may come in the form of bus signs, airport ads, billboards, posters in malls, stadium signs and bench advertising. But oftentimes, most consumers find outdoor advertising boring, so it is important to have a compelling, creative and memorable poster or billboard. Although it cost cheaper than those of other print and TV and radio ads, advertising through a wider audience outdoors is still a proven way to hit the target market.

It may also be one of the oldest forms of communication and advertising medium, for example, poster printing poster printing, yet because of the advent of technology, more and more posters, billboards and ads are done creatively, persuasively, attractively and are very convincing. Because of new technology, it has turned the oldest marketing tool into one of the most cost-effective, high-impact and strategic advertising medium. This type of advertising has also evolved, from the vinyl-printed materials to the tri-vision signs, 3-D images and even interactive billboards.

Perhaps this is no easy task for those doing poster printing, since it has to be surprising and must be able to establish a connection with the audience; that the message has to get through to them. It should also appeal to the emotions, meaning it has to arouse the feelings of the audience and making it relevant. But whatever form of advertising it may be, as long as the message gets across, then it’s effective.

CC: As Mother and Aunt

I don't know about you guys, but every once in awhile, I have this moment where I blame myself when Jacob misbehaves. For instance, there were times when I feel like he is not listening to me or he is ignoring me. I said this because I would repeat the same thing everyday to him otherwise he wouldn't do what I asked him to do like putting away his toys, brushing his teeth, tidying up his room, and so forth and so on. I don't want to yell on him, and so I would just leave the room and cries. Hubby keeps on cheering me up and tries to assures me that "I am a good Mom to Jake and he is couldn't find a better mother for his son than me." It was like a music to my ear every time he says those words...and I feel better again. He also said that Jacob's success at school was because of me. That is how my husband sees me as the mother of his only son...and I love him for that!

As an Aunt, Matt knows that I love my immediate family and they meant the world to me, too! The way I depend, support and take care of them show how much I love them. And so, he never complain when I send "care packages" to them every now and then. Hubby loves me for my selfless love to our son, to him, his family and my immediate family. He knows my generosity and our strong family ties. I always get compliments from him for my selfless love, generosity and thoughtfulness to my nieces.

Broken Hearted: This Too Shall Pass

Have you ever experienced that excruciating pain not because you were involved in a tragic accident or had a malignant disease, but due to a failed relationship and a heart being broken? Were there times in your life when you were watching a comedy movie but your tears were falling profusely from your eyes because of heartaches? Did it ever occur to you that eternal love was just a fiction and life had no meaning? Have you ever experienced cursing your life and swearing to death because you lost faith in love? Were there moments in your life that even in your dreams you were hurting?

I strongly believe that somehow or somewhere in our mortal existence, we answered those questions with a groaning YES! I must admit, I am no exception! In my viewpoint the pain that we experienced because of love or failed relationship is either inflicted by others (our partner) or a consequence of our wrong decision or choice. The hurt imposed by other people is beyond our capacity to control. What can we do if our partners purposely looked for someone else or were just too weak to resist temptations (so lame) or just simply were fallen out of love? On the other hand, sometimes it is “us” who are inviting pain to come upon ourselves. Perhaps, there were times when we knew that the relationship was wrong from the very start; and yet, we still persisted believing that love knew no boundaries and reasons; and when it failed, it dragged us to melancholy. Or, we plainly gave in to that “natural man” and unfortunately chose to hurt the “one’ we love – which sadly led us to that road of sorrow and regret! Regardless of the reason(s), we should not let our misery due to unsuccessful relationship shatter our hope and faith in love. My heart goes to those individuals, especially women, who are brokenhearted at the moment (due to a wrong choice or caused by others).

I was once in your shoes, but now I could say that I am the happiest woman alive. There are a number of suggestions that I would like to share on how to mend your broken heart and ultimately help you retrace your steps to happiness. However, I would like to warn you that these are easier said than done and these might not work for everyone. Just give it a shot anyway! It is impossible to start finding your way back to happiness if you are still holding on to false hopes and dreams. If your partner is cheating on you or the other party is no longer interested to make the relationship works, allow yourself to mourn for a moment but never let heartaches and denial drown you. Immediately open that gateway to healing through accepting that it’s time for you to get going.

~ Commitment is necessary: You can never move on unless you have chosen and decided NOW that you will do so. Commit and focus yourself, even if it is difficult, to keep moving forward…YOU CAN DO IT!
~ Pick up the pieces of you: Do not lose hope that someday, somewhere you will find that someone who will make you complete and will give you the true meaning of “everlasting love.” For now, start picking up the pieces of you, enhance the beauty that is already in you, love yourself and start anew…
~ Remember, you can only give your all if your heart is whole! You cannot find bliss in solitude. It is easier to forget your heartache if you will not do it alone! Spend time with your family. Be with people who have that sense of positivity and humor. Socialize. Don’t be so pathetic by just staying in your room and crying all day long.
~ Cease all sorts of communication: When I was still in the process of fixing my broken heart, I realized that it was extremely difficult to move forward because we’re still connected even if we were physically apart. Hence, I restricted myself from answering phone calls and SMS or responding to email messages. Also, I erased the previously received sweet nothings that were stored on my cellular phone and deleted those messages I saved in my email account for so long. Since then, forgetting the unwanted feelings and the pain was no longer a problem!
~ Note: Restore the communication only when you are no longer affected and you have already totally moved on! Do not underestimate the power of prayer. Always remember that Jesus Christ experienced both physical and emotional pain and suffering when He atoned for our sins. He can best comfort you because He comprehends what you are going through. Pray for strength that you might be able to endure the pain. Pray for courage that you might be able to forgive yourself or the one who caused you so much hurt. Pray for guidance so that you will be able to walk back to that path of joy and love without fear. Pray for wisdom that your heart will know when and to whom it should beat again.

I love the saying, “What won’t kill you makes you stronger!” Gratitude always fills my heart every time I think of how I have become because of the sufferings that I went through in the name of love. Hearing ourselves or others questioning our Maker because of heartaches and despair is an unfortunate display of conviction that fall short! It is a sad truth! But, cheer up my friends! Remember, heartaches, pain, sufferings and despair: these too shall pass. Keep praying that your broken heart will soon be mended; so that when the time comes that love will find its way back to your heart again… you are ready to welcome it with a bang!

CC: He is Not a Picky Eater!

One of the things I like about Caucasian is that they are very vocal with what they feel and think. It makes our life easier because they don't hide what they feel...well at least with my hubby. He tells me how much he hates it when I pluck my eyebrows or when I fry dried fish. Talking about cooking, if I can cook, he can cook, too! I might not be a very good cook, but to him..I am except when it comes to certain Filipino foods such as "Dinuguan, Kare kare, Pinapaitan, Bopis, and Adobong Atay. Well, at least he tried them first before he said "i don't like it." He loves adobo, nilaga, caldereta minus liver, apritada, menudo, tinola, sinigang and etc...He used to eat pansit, but is burned out of it. He wouldn't even touch it at all now. Noticed now, yeah, he loves to eat and he is not a picky eater either. His photo says it all, lol! On the other hand, I do the same when it comes to the food he cooks. I will try to eat once or twice of his foods, but that's about it. I love his chicken curry the best!

Missing My Husband So Much!

Every time my husband goes back to work after his 3 and 4 days off from work, I couldn't help but miss him. I couldn't sleep well at night and sad. One time I asked him if he feels the same, and he said "yes." He doesn't wan to go, but he needs to. I know what he meant, it's just that I have gotten used to hanging out with him. I feel so safe and secure when he is around. The strange this is that when I sleep on his side of our bed, I would fall asleep easily, as if he is laying down next to me. So every morning when he gets back from work, he would find me there and would kiss me on my cheek saying "Honey, you need yo move a little bit so I can sleep," lol. The only explanation I can think of is: " i love my husband so much." And he loves me back the same. This man is not only my best friend, and lover but also my soul mate and companion through all eternity. And I thank God for blessing me with such a wonderful husband! With that, I am forever grateful to HIM!

On FB, a friend of mine at church posted this:

even after 12 years, I still miss him when he's not here.

You, Gordon and 7 others like this.

Farrah Coren, I am the same way. I hate being away from Bart.

Vanessa Same here

Alicia I understand!

Lou I miss Bart too :)

Tonia Being married to your best friend is the best!!!

Margie I think it gets worse the longer I've been married! (meaning I miss him more when he goes)

Coren Well, he did just come back home and started groping me, so now I just want him to go.

Margie ‎:-)

Farrah Lou, I could let you borrow him for a while.

Diane It's the same after 36.

That means, am not the only one who misses their hubbies so much!

CC: He Doesn't Like to be Tickled!

There is only one thing that annoys hubby so much. When I tickle him under his armpits, both sides of his waist. The one that he really, really hates is that when I tickle him between his bottoms, lol! The look on his face when I do that is making me laugh! Imagine when you see your hubby's facial expression when he want to smile and frown at the same time!

Pink Friday: Pink PSP

Two weeks ago, my youngest niece graduated from grade school. I wasn't there to witness it and most of all congratulate her. Anyway, when I asked what gift she wanted, she said that it is up to me. She will take it whatever I give her because she was shy. Then, I remembered one photo from her graduation day where she was playing a PSP she borrowed from her cousin. I thought that maybe if I could find a Pink PSP just like the one on the picture, then I'd buy it for her. Since this PSP is a limited edition, it would be very hard for me to find one! But I am still positive that I would get one before our trip to the Philippines this summer.

The pink PSP is absolutely fabulous. The pink PSP is not only meant for games, but also for videos. With this pink PSP you surely will turn heads. There is a lot of video material which can be obtained with downloads, once you have done this you can put the videos on your cute PSP. With the pink PSP limited edition goes a white headphone, memory stick duo 32 MB, white cover and the UMD of singer Pink.

CC: Two Birds in One Stone

Rodliz’s Nest

First of all, I'd like to share a little bit of last week's theme that I've missed due to my busy schedule. It was all about getting ready to go out. Before, Matt used to get ready longer than I am. And it kind of annoyed me. It was supposed to be me who spend more time in front of the mirror and not him! But then 'no.' Now, he gets dress pretty quickly and for me, I need 1 solid hour to get ready and that includes taking a shower, brushing my teeth, fixing my hair, putting on light make up and trying at least three dresses before I can finally get dress.

Okay, here is my share for this week them. Every once in a while, hubby and I get lost especially in an unfamiliar place or places we have never been before. But most of the time we find the right place or address when we have a direction from map quest. During those time when we couldn't find the place, I wished hubby would stop and ask someone for direction! It is annoying when he doesn't want to do anything....even listen to me when I asked him to stop and ask someone for direction!

What is it in a man asking for direction? A question I always ask myself when he chose to refused my entreaties to stop and ask someone for direction. Is it because ultimate display of male arrogance and stubbornness? If it isn't? Then what!? I did some research and this is what I've found/learned.

According to Alison Armstrong, the author of "Keys to the Kingdom." It is important to understand that men are NEVER "lost." To him, that implies a helplessness that he will never willingly experience. He simply hasn't gotten there yet and he has complete faith in his ability to do so.

Also, a man's unwillingness to stop and ask for directions is consistent with his survival instincts and actually not stubborn at all. First, the act of stopping the car, and rolling down the window, makes him (and you) more vulnerable than he is willing to be just to get some place faster.

Second, from a man's point-of-view, the moment he asks a gas station attendant, or someone on the street, for directions, he has put his life and yours in the hands of a stranger! Men, wisely, only put their lives in the hands of people who have proven themselves trustworthy. The way he sees it, you are both better off searching for your location yourselves than being at the mercy of the judgment of someone he doesn't know and trust.

Why has he never told you this? According to our research, this is because, to him, it is obvious. Every man already knows this and something that everyone already knows requires no explanation. It is a mystery to him why you seem to have forgotten this basic rule of survival.

CC: We Celebrate US in Small and Simple Ways

Okay, 'how do we celebrate being together?' Matt and I celebrate it during his day off. Since he works night shift, his three days off every week are spent....running errands together, we sometimes eat out if we feel like it or simply cuddle while watching our favorite tv shows or movie in demands. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive.....just simply being together makes us happy and contented. For instance, today he said he wanted to take me out for lunch at my favorite restaurant (TGI Friday), but I said ''no.'' I just want to stay home and be with him. So we just took a nap! Sometimes, we just go to the temple, watch movie, or have dinner with friends. I just love being with him....sometimes we wished that he doesn't have to go to work so we could be together all the time, lol! But that is not going to happen....he needs to work otherwise we would starve to death....for love isn't enough to survive our life together! Anyway, someday we'd like to go for a cruise to celebrate being together as well as our wedding anniversary. Kailan kaya yun? Hopefully in the near future...maybe next year!

What about you? Share with us...how you celebrate being together with your better half! My share for this week on....
