I know I should be getting quotes from Wholesaleinsurance.net but I got distracted with these lovely kids’ beds. As you may know, we are slowly turning the other room into Sandy’s bedroom. This means we’re planning on repainting the walls, buying cute but hopefully affordable furniture like bed and lamp shades and lastly, find a space for all the junk that The Husband has accumulated for the past year.
Here’s my top three:
Don’t laugh but I want a pair of Nike SB like the one below. Either that or a classic green suede Puma. After weeks of looking for the perfect shade of green, I stumbled upon Nike and fell in love instantly with it. I didn’t really care what kind or brand at first as long as it fits my budget. But after seeing this shade, I just had to have it. Just like how much I obsessed in having a pair of red, glittery ballet flats similar to Dorothy’s (which I never found anyway), I just know I wouldn’t be able to rest until I get one exactly this shade.
After visiting this online store that sells Gift Baskets for Men, I knew exactly what to give to my boss for his birthday. I was planning to spend less than $35 so I got pretty excited when I saw the gourmet cheese and snacks package. He’s not a connoisseur but he loves all kinds of gourmet snacks especially cheese. I’m pretty sure he will love my gift as soon as I figured out where I can send it.
Here are three baskets that I’d love to get for myself: Gourmet and Cheese, Nuts and Sweets, Coffee Basket
Pardon the late post but she got sick a few days before her 8th month birthday so updating wasn’t really my first priority.
She had fever for three days, been to the ER to find out that she has ear and throat infection then as soon as her fever died down, the rashes started to appear. She had roseola, according to the pediatrician, which is thankfully gone now. It was hard to see our little one not looking like herself - no smiles, always cranky and feeling weak most of the time.
Her 8th month celebration. No big smiles from our little Meg because of her rashes.
With her Ate Sandy.
Happy 8th month, Meg! 4 more to go and you’re officially a toddler.
I stumble upon this Grand Cayman jewelry web site and it’s all I can do not to drool over my laptop. I love luxury as much as the next girl and that’s not limited to jewelry. Not that I could afford them but I enjoy browsing through the latest designer handbag, shoes, watches, gadgets and exotic getaways. But anyway, I digress. See these two beautiful necklace that is within reasonable budget. When I say reasonable, it means I have one whole year to save up for them. And even then, I might feel too guilty to buy! So all that’s left is for me to window shop and dream that someday, I could get one of these not just for me but for my mom and my two girls too.
All of them less than $800.

It’s only February and yet the Husband is already planning on what he would like to buy on this year’s Black Friday sale (9 months to go!). He saw a very cool wii game so he’s torn between a PS3 or Wii. I can’t help him decide because I’m not too crazy about video games. But if I have one input, it will be that it has to be kid friendly. After all, we have two girls who will no doubt share some playing time with him.
Speaking of games, I’m actually looking for a Love and Berry game for Sandy. So far, they only have it for DS Lite so I hope Walmart will have another price drop on their DS items. She loved playing with it at Rockwell but you need to have plenty of cards to be able to enjoy. Which is why I’d rather she play with it at home with a DS console. Much cheaper in the long run.
Everyday, I turn into mom from hell. I guess it’s expected when you have more than one kid. To those who remain peaceful while calmly disciplining their children, either you are high or only get to be with the kids a few hours a day. Okay, so that’s mean. Let me scratch that. I know some parents are very good at controlling their tempers but sad to say, I am not one of them. Imagine not being able to work because Meg wouldn’t sleep because when she was sleepy, Sandy will wake her up or Sandy will be cranky because she’s tired because when she was about to sleep, Meg will disturb her. I am always frustrated and most of the time stressed because I rarely meet my deliverables. To do damage control, when I catch myself frowning at something, I immediately try to smile to avoid wrinkles. Seriously, even Sandy laughs at me when she sees me do this. I badly need dermitage to smoothen my already aging face, thanks to them. And Meg isn’t even one year old. God knows how much worse it could get when she can actually throw a tantrum or fight with her Ate. Still, I’m not complaining that much. I know the good things outweigh the bad ones. Even as I write this, I can’t help but look at my girls and smile how blessed I am that I have them. And yes, even when they are “fighting”.
Today, I am so proud to say that Meg did number two on the big toilet. She was on cloth diaper this morning because she was about ready to take a bath. When I felt that she was trying to push, I immediately put the baby toilet cushion on top of our toilet and placed her there. I gave her a small toy so her hands will be occupied just in case she wants to touch the toilet (que horror!). She saw comfortably and finished without any problems. She even had a small book at the end and I would’ve taken a photo (to show her when she’s older) but she started moving around. I know it was just luck but I feel like if I do the same every morning, I know I could train her early. The question now is if I can find the time to do it, what with my already limited work hours.
Still, not so bad for my little Chuba who’s turning 8 months next week.
I just love having two girls! I know I almost cried when the ultrasound showed a “burger” because I wanted to have a boy so bad. But I couldn’t remember that feeling anymore now that we have Meg. It’s like I’ve always wanted to have two girls! Especially when I see them playing together. Sandy loves taking care of her sister even if Meg wants to do nothing but wrestling or jumping on the bed, with her big sister on it.
Looks like we have a fighter in Meg. I’m glad that she is strong because she seems to be rubbing off some of her personality to her Ate who has always been a girly girl. Lately, it’s hard to put them down for a nap at the same time. Meg will be closing her eyes while she breast feeds but then she’ll hear a sound from her Ate which will make her want to wake up and play. On the other hand, when Sandy is about to sleep, Meg will somehow feel this, smile a naughty smile and then crawl all over her ate’s sleepy form. In short, our afternoons are never peaceful. Most of the time, it ends up with me being the bad guy. Which is why I just let them be unless I could see that they are starting to get cranky from lack of rest.
This franchise web site is making me want to put up a business of my own. The only problem is that I don’t have the head for one no matter how much I want to be my own boss. You must already know that I freelance as a web site designer. Last year, I’ve had design requests almost everyday that I wondered if I should put up my own design studio. But then just thinking about the legal stuff turned me off so I didn’t push through with it. Maybe next year when Meg turns two, I could have more time planning and who knows, I could quit work and just focus on getting business for myself.
