Have A Nice Day

Many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it.
And if you let them, they'll dump it on you.
When someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally. You just smile, wish them well, and move on... you'll be happy you did..... promise! :)

Relaxing Afternoon

Right now, Angelina's taking her afternoon nap. If I leave it to her (nap time), she won't do it. So I reinforced that she has to take a nap so she can grow and makes her brain smart.

I'm sure, when school starts...she won't be taking naps no more.

Wherever, I go she's always with me except for some occasions where kids are not allowed or I am just seeing with pure adults.

She got the matured side of attitude and so independent. Time flies and she's growing like a weed.

Anyway, she confined to me one night that this girl can't be her friend because she use bad words. I asked her what kind of word is that? She whispered on my ear and it was unbelievable nasty words.

I told my girl, remember, Angelina...we raised you to have moral and value in life. People will surely like you and love you if you use kind words that comes out from your sweet mouth.

"I Am, Mama and I'm sorry if I talked back, okay?"

"It's okay to express your right, little one as long as no bad words that you utters. God can see you in everything you do."

"I love you, Mama and I really like you being my Mama," her say.

Don't you just love their minds? Happy Saturday and wishing you all the best in life.

Taking A Day Trip

Authored by Greg Fletcher

The bitter chill of winter gives way to the gentle gradual time of Spring when the flowers bloom and nature is reborn. The busy engine of life never truly stops especially for the human species. Work goes on and companies make and lose money. For five days a week, the human condition is to earn a living and all the stress and demands that earning that living entails. Then comes the weekend that magical time when work is forgotten and the body and mind turn to play.

Families love to take day trips. Simply, the day trip could be a quiet drive in the country or mountains or a day at the beach in the hot sun and cool water. It does matter what kind of trip the family takes the important thing is to go and have some fun. Before a family takes off there are some things that must be done. It is a good idea to bring along some food and water, sunscreen, a change of clothes, and some tools in case of a breakdown. A cell phone is also a must for any day trip. The last thing to do is to set the alert alarm system before leaving the house.

My family loves adventure and the adrenaline rush of being scared out of their minds. One of the best day trips for this kind of activity is the amusement park. We live in Denver and one of the best amusement parks in the area is Elitch Gardens which is part of the Six Flags Corporation. A day at Elitch's is a day of being jockeyed around like a sponge ball, twisting and turning on very fast coasters, turned upside down numerous times and waiting in endless lines for two minute rides.

With all that said and done, Elitch Gardens is still a very fun place for kids and to be a kid again.

Lunch At Home

While I was at work, my friend IM me. Instead of typing, I asked her if I can just make a phone call and off we go with our conversation.

We both decided to eat lunch in our house right after I get off from my job. Before 12: 00 noon, I checked my phone who is in a vibrating mode and I sure had some missed calls.

I returned the calls in order as it was received. As I called my friend, she told me that she's in our house because our other friend told her that we're having lunch....I was laughing, so, so hard. I was just talking about leftover food from yesterday though.

Well, yesterday...didn't know that my Mama was making some nilagang baka, pansit and adobo. If I just knew it, we didn't go at all at Sweet Tomatoes for our yesterday's lunch.

Anyway, I asked her what time did she arrived in our house and how did she get in? Silly questions ha! Well, she simply said, "I was here past 12:00 noon because our friend said that we will meet 12: 00 noon and I rang the bell many times and finally your Papa answered and open the door." Then I asked, "Where's our friend?" "Oh, I thought you will pick her up?" her say.

" I do, but I won't get off work not until past 12:30," my reply. "in that case, I will just pick her up now," her eagerness.

When I arrived, they already set the table and started eating...lol! Don't you just love friends? I do...they are already part of my life. No man is an island and no man can stand alone...according to the saying.

At 2:15 PM, we all get out from the house since I have to be at my 3 hrs job by 2:30 PM. My friends will go to their appointments too.

What a nice lunch and fellowship we had. Thank you, Lord for the food that we have everyday in our table and thank you for everything.

The Midweek

I was called to work yesterday in the Preschool. I thought it was just yesterday but it's for the whole week beginning Tuesday. Bummer! I already set up an appointment with my friend. I stick to my word that I can't work.

Next time, make it clear so I don't have to plan anything ahead....lol!

"You're off today and make sure you will be here on Thursday and Friday."

"Not a problem," I said so.

Using the Internet to Purchase Things for my Dog

Guest post written by Taylor Denot

I just got a new puppy a couple months ago from my mother, and he is now almost eight months old. Since I have had him, I have always gone online via my hughesnet internet packages to purchase things for him. He is constantly chewing on everything from the shoes in the house to his own bed, so lately I have been buying a lot of bones online. On the dog.com website, they have everything you could ever need for your dog. The last item I purchased from that site was a cheddar and bacon bone that mypuppy just cannot get enough of. I also plan on buying him a new crate from this website as he gets bigger because I have looked through the ones they have available and they are a really great price. I also saw that they have dog food, dog treats, and so many other things. Every item I have seen is at a lower price than I have ever seen in a pet store. Plus, the pet store is pretty far away from where I live, so when the dog food is getting short, I just get online and find the brand I want. They ship it right to my door. I also use hughes internet to find out information about my dog when something is wrong with him.

It's That Time Again

When looking for car policies, one of the biggest questions people have is, "How can I save money?" Given the current state of economy, individuals are concerned with reducing costs, conserving their resources, and making the most of the money we have.

Anyway, the premium of my car insurance will expired this month. The insurance company that I am with right now is sending me a noticed to renew my policy.

I only insured my car and not the truck of my husband since he's not using it at all. Looking at my premium payment, seems like it's too much from my pocket.

Last night, I did check some car insurance comparison rates via carinsurancerates.me. I'm glad I found this site for easy navigation. I did see some lower rates compared to what I am paying right now.

I noticed, the pricey the car , the higher the insurance. One thing also, if the car will just stay outside or in the street not in the garage, we have to pay more for it. Glad that we bought a house that we can fit in our cars inside our garage.

Shopping around and comparing quotes can save us anywhere from $50-$500; a wise consumer can also take additional steps to reduce his or her rates further.

So, if you are one of those, who's insurance policy is expiring and wants to save some money, check out this site, carinsurancerates.me for policy comparison rates.


I am obligated to run some errands here and there. It's my day off and need to be productive today.

I have some paperworks to be done, take my folks for a lunchdate, Dr's appts and house chores.
I'm not sure if I still have the chance to go swimming tonight for my girl. By that time, I will be tired and exhausted with the kind of weather we have.
