When It Rains, It Pours










I finally got the package that my friend Mary Ann from California sent me. She got me a nice bag and a cute one for my daughter too. I also fitted the hand carried clothes that came from the Philippines through my good friend Dr. Barrientos. Thanks a lot Xyza for doing my a great favor (she was the one who went to the dressmaker to have a dozen of my clothes sewn. What a blessing it is to have really great friends. One that you will value forever. I am so glad for all the blessings I received. Thank you again and again.

What A Sunday!

Sweet daughter's friend B called her up and asked her if she would be interested to go with her in the carnival. She begged permission that I granted just to make her happy. James frowned because she wanted to go too but the girls wanted to be by themselves so I just promise him that we will go after we fetching my stepson from the airport. First we dropped our daughter at her friend's house then we went to Wawa to get some coffee. Then we headed to the airport. Stepson called us up asking where we were. Oooppps miraculously the plane landed earlier than we thought. The last time we remembered it was an hour late. We were happy that we did not have to pay parking fee since he was already waiting at the passenger pick up. When we arrived home we drove the little guy to he carnival but funy thing is it has not started yet. The school carnival will end on the 5th of next month so we promise to just drive him there on the weekend. What a busy Sunday we have had today.

Visiting My Friend In Baltimore

Irene just came back from the Philippines to visit her children. I ordered a dozen of blouses and she hand carried them for me. I really loved the colors and the simplicity of the cut no to mention the price. Irene came here to teach and now she came back with her husband and youngest kid. I gave her daughter a baby doll as a way of thank you for their kindness. I showed her the pics we took the last time we went to Niagara Falls and Longwood Garden. We planned to go visit them again and see the Baltimore Aquarium the next time around. Thank you really Irene for han carrying m blouses. Mwuah!!!;-)

Yay me, I'm on Cloud Nine Today!

I'm feeling so happy today. Burning my midnight candle has finally paid off. The dreadful days of waiting for the result is over and I am feeling lifted on cloud nine!;-) I checked the result of the teachers exam online and I passed with great summer colors. To tell you the truth I was dreadfully horrified that I would flunk it because hubby has so high expectations on me.
A month ago when I took the test no one can draw the lines on my face when I got out of the examination room. Hubby comforted me and told me I was not the only asian who looked so bewildered when they came out from the examination room. That kind of look like I hae drenched my head in a bucket of cold water. And I even had a self talk that if ever I will not pass the test I will just take it again. Nothing beats with preparation and prayers.
Thank you Lord for guiding me. You have always proven your power.

A New Haircut

I have been cutting hubby and the kids' hair for more than a couple of times and at least they are happy and contented with it. Most of all my wallet is contented since I have save some money in trimming their hair myself. But the funny thing is I can't cut my own hair. My hair began to grow too long and it felt heavy. Everyday it seem so hot and I always felt the need to get a shower. It's not easy taking care of a very long hair with two kids to look after. Even if summer is almost over I still my hair trimmed. I went to the parlor to get a trim. The last time I remembered was I cut my bangs and it looked so crooked and funny. My haircut is usually angled in front and I wanted to have some bangs so definitely I can't do it myself. The hairdresser liked my hair and she really did not feel like cutting it. I thought it was funny since every time I go to the parlor hairdressers will always make the same comment. She trimmed my hair nicely and I am so happy with the result. I felt good with my new hair. I think I will be looking for her the next time I will go to the parlor.

Summer Is Almost Over

Today is a perfect day in the pool. The kids took a dip for an hour and I sat there looking at them jumping into the 10 ft. deep water. As summer is almost over I looked back and tried to assess of how it has been for us. This summer has been basically an unforgettabe one for them because they have learned how to swim by themselves. They have graduated from 3ft to 10ft deep of water. Sometimes I couldn't believe it that time has passed by so fast. My kids have grown more and more each day. I did not really taught them how to swim and I couldn't believe how they have learned it. Yesterday I took a dip in the pool with them and I reaized I am not a good swimmer as they are. Can you imagine how much money I have saved from not sending them to a swimming class? Lol. They are into dancing and I am planning to send them to a dance class to enhance their talent.

Malling

Have you tried going to the mall with no plans of buying anything? I bet its hard since it's so tempting to buy something with all the stores you find in it. We went to Cherry Hill Mall yesterday. It's been a long time since I last went to the mall. I wanted to just go visit Cherry Hill Mall not minding on what to buy. The outside layout of the mall looked funny to me because I thought the stores are all separate. Oh well how come you call i a mall if they're all separate. Yesterday when I told my hubby tha I want6 to go malling he instantly agreed about it. I was so happy and excited.
As we were walking around the mall we saw the Disney store. The kids wanted to check what's in it. James found something that he wanted to buy which was beyond the amount he was allowed. He threw fits on us as we walk around the mall. We ended up buying him a toy in Toys R Us. We bought an sms toy that they send and receive message around the house. I think it was my fault since I did not tell them that my purpose in going to the mall is just to roam around and not buy anything. The next time around I should be telling them about it before we go.
I bought some strawberry shake and chocolate ice cream at DQ's. Hubby bought some pepperoni pretzels at Aunt Anne's. Boy it was so good I almost forgot my name. Lol. Hubby was amazed of how much I loved the pretzels since I'm not a fan of american food yet I liked it so much that I vowed to buy some again.

Addicted to Facebook's Farmtown

Hello friends! It's been a long time since I was gone in the blogging world and the lame reason about it is because I became addicted to one of Facebook's game applications called Farmtown. In farmtown one becomes a farmer, help others harvest and plow their farm, get paid and gain experience. One canalso beable to expand their own farm by buying lands, design your own farm. Each time you go to the next level there is always somethig nice in store for you. Can you believe I even spent sleepless nights farming? lol. It sounds crazy but oh well since the kids are on vacation I always have the lame excuse to be able to sleep realy very late. Good thing the feeling of obessession has finally subsided a bit so I am back to my blog.;-)
