Loveland Outlet

After I picked up our girl from school, we went straight to our friend's house and had lunch. We talked a lot and laughed out loud. Isn't it nice to just laugh and laugh instead of being grumpy?

Morag gitapulan na ko balik sa trabaho, nanawag ko sa ako kauban if he can work for me. Glad that he accepted my favor. So, we continue with our non-stop talking and endless laughing.

Imagine ha! It was 12 noon when we started our session and went home almost 1:00 AM.
Well at 5:30 PM, we decided to go to the Outlet Mall in Loveland. So, I dropped off our girl at home and told Hubby about our plan. I got his permission and off we went to the outlet store with our friend driving.

We got great deal at Ralph Lauren's and Famous Footwear. Didn't realize, we're the only customer left thinking that they closed at 9PM but it's 8PM. Now we know.

We came home almost 9PM and and start our dinner again. Well, time to feed the hungry tummy though...wink! To be honest, nakahanggap jud ko ug daghang hangin sa sige ug tingsi. Late at night we had the manicure and pedicure session.

By the time we were done, time for us to go home. I only slept for 4 hours and here I am at work drinking my morning coffee to ease the tiredness and sleepiness.

I doubt it if I still have the energy to work at the preschool but we will see. My friends are planning to go to Estes Park today.

I have more stories to tell but my time is limited. Need to drop our child to the school and a great friend of mine is on the phone. So, need to exit and end my story.

Happy Thursday!

Fun and Spicy "Undercovers"

Guest post from: Steve Delaney

I am really looking forward to the upcoming fall television spy series, "Undercovers" starring Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. As soon as I saw the preview on NBC, it sparked my interest. It instantly reminded me of the movie, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", which I loved, featuring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Only it appears the married duo in "Undercovers" get along great with each other. Also, when I heard the creative force of J.J. Abrams was behind the production, I was even more excited. Abrams brought two of my favorite TV programs, "Alias" and "Lost" to life. It looks like he's cooked up another winner with this spicy drama.

The action revolves around Steven and Samantha Bloom, who own a catering business in Los Angeles. We discover that in their former careers, they were top-notch CIA agents. However, in the midst of trying to live a "normal" life after their marriage, they unexpectedly get called back into service to help find another agent who has disappeared. Gerald McRaney, a terrific veteran actor, plays their gruff CIA boss, Carlton Shaw. This promises to be a fun, sexy and clever hit as the husband and wife team chase bad guys and get in and out of one escapade after another. I definitely intend to watch this new fall show on the channels we get with our Direct tv deals in New York when it comes out.

Homeworks, Homeworks

"Mama, I have lots of homework to do," her say when she hopped in the car this afternoon.

When we got home, we went over her Monday folder and homework folder. It's so cute when the teacher grade 100% in her paper.

They have this writing journal and it's worth 5 points each. Parents' initial is 1 point equivalent but I forgot to signed. My bad. Now I knew, I have to check her works before submitting to the class. So each page, our girl only get 4 points each but this time, September 27, we're being watchful in terms of our initial.

Amazing how they can read some of the sight words. Way to go to our girl. Keep it up!

Student Of The Month

How could that be? maybe because she just hopped in with the group? In her folder, I saw this SOTM. I was not paying attention at all, thinking maybe it's one of their activities and check it later.

When I picked her up yesterday, the teacher said that our girl is doing a great job at their class despite of her being new. They had a test with all the basic sounds and she did well according to her mentor.

Whew! Our hard works too as a parent pays-off.
I've always remind our girl that this is the only treasure that we can give to her that no one can steal it away from her...I mean education.

In her young mind, hopefully she can instilled some of the maymay in life or lagbas lang pod sa pikas dunggan. Prayers help though.

Catching Every Minute of Nascar's Race for the Chase

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham

I love my satellite TV as I never miss a Nascar Sprint Cup race. I use my satellite tv dvr to record the ones I can't watch live. This is very important now as we come down to the Race for the Chase. Mark Martin is my favorite this year. He is been very consistent over the season and I cannot see that changing now. Watkins Glen and Bristol can both be difficult tracks for drivers. Things can go from excellent to disastrous in the blink of an eye. I'm sure Mark Martin is aware of that and will take precautionary measures.

Other drivers that I think will be right alongside Martin include Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart. Denny Hamlin has been very impressive although this is his first year running in this series. Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart have shown over time that they know how to stay in the hunt and bring home the prize. It does look like big names such as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kurt Busch and Kasey Kahne may not make it into the Nascar Sprint Cup Race for the Chase though. It just doesn't appear to be their year.

New School


Thank you to Rich's cousin in helping Angelina to get in The Academy. The waiting list is forever and they go by lottery too. I was at peace for our girl to be in a school closed to our home. It's our home school but my FIL thinks that Academy is one of the best schools.

Last September 14, I pulled out Angelina at North Mor Elementary then September 15 she get in at her new school. For me it's kind of far to drive. It's about 5 miles and it took me 15 minutes to drive with all the traffic in a rash hour. Before, her school was just .02 miles.

Yesterday, the teacher released the 1st term grades and I was surprise that she got all the A's. Since it's School District 12, they just transferred all her grades from the previous school.

Baxter Lake

Thanks for the guest post by Ron Faulkner

Baxter Lake is a lovely place to fish that can be found in the eastern side of Anchorage, Alaska. Not only is it goo for fishing, there are many fun places to visit around the lake, as well as restaurants and stores to go to. This makes it excellent for taking a day trip and relaxing with family and friends. Fishing is awesome here because most people that go here go for fishing and nothing else.

Fishing is important to many people in Alaska due to the fact that a lot of us depend on subsistence living to survive. Being able to go fishing every day, or even once a week, and knowing that you can keep anything you can catch is one of the best feelings in the world. Catch and release is frowned upon so most people find a way to keep whatever they manage to fish up.

I have enjoyed doing this for some time now, but especially since the new addition to my home. I am not simply set and arm my Home Security system and set out on a trip to anywhere I feel, knowing that my worldly possessions are safe and untouchable. Being able to take my friends out on a cruise or visit another city is something that is easy, and I no longer worry about being stolen from.

Welcome Home

We send Ma and Pa home to the airport last Sunday. Now, they're back in the Philippines safe and sound. Praised the Lord for the traveling mercy.

Only time can tell when they want to come back here. I'm sure, they're busy with their project over there.

Here we are, back to no, Lo and La in the house.
Angelina's missing her grannies but we can visit in Pinas if we want to but for right now, life is kind of busy just around here.

Amish Country

Guest post written by Tim Bowers

Restoring horse drawn carriages is my hobby. My grandfather owned a stockyard so he collected a lot of old wagons and that's what got me interested. i'm really curious about Amish wagons because they're so simple yet nice.

So I decided i wanted to visit Amish country a long time ago. I got my brothers together to go and when we were taking a buggy ride from a local Amish man who was talking to us during it, I had some trouble listening to him. After that my older brother said the he had bought some hearing aids LOS ANGELES and my twin brother chimed in and said he had bought some hearing aids Chicago too.

After all that talk I decided that I should go and get some hearing aids PHILADELPHIA when I got home. So that's just what I did.

I also got some great restoration tips from the Amish man that drove us in the buggy.

The Bihod of Our Life

We had a great morning dropping her off to school. Well, she was all ready when I picked her up from changing clothes, brushing teeth and combing her hair. The Dada was helping her out though, you know what I mean by teamwork?...wink! Hopefully in the long run, our girl will get used to it, I mean the routine. Hubby's trying his best to cheap in some of his time to do something for his girl if possible. He loves his girl so much just like any fathers out there. It's a common concept, right?

All her home works were in her backpack already including her water bottle.
I'm just so touched with our girl because she knows how to appreciate the things that we do for her. "Thank you, Mama for letting me go to school and taking care of me." Kinsa man sad nga inahan dili matandog, abir? Life is good!

Great Offer

A friend just moved here in the United States from the Philippines. She's kind of brand new and still learning and observing the life in America.

One time she called and said that she's totally bored looking the four corners of their apartment. Wished, I can take her out and go strolling somewhere but she's in a different state though. She told me that she missed her soap on TV with all the Filipino characters. Not that she don't like American celebrities but I do understand her sentiments about the longingness watching those soap.

Well, I asked her if they have satellite or cable with their TV so she can purchased The Filipino Channel (TFC). She said she will ask her husband because she don't have any idea what they got. The next time we talked, she said that they just have regular channels or local channels.

Then I said, It might be a good idea to let her husband knew that she can watch Filipino channels through Direct TV. It's the only localTV satellite that offers the best satellite TV deals that save money. As you can see, with over 160 HD channels, local coverage for 94% of all US households, the # sports programming service, and so much more, both with the best quality and quantity of satellite TV service.

I gave to my friend the link or the website called localtv-satellite.com and my friend was so happy. They saw the great deals being offered. Well, her husband loves her so much and want her to be happy, so that means she won't be bored staying at home now and she will be watching her TV all they long, (hopefully not...wink!) and feast her eyes on all the movies she likes, provided by Direct TV.

Good Job, Little One

Yesterday, my girl showed to me another YOU RULE, green paper. I asked her what did you do that made your teacher happy.

I was lining up quietly while my classmates are all wild and noisy.
I was impressed! Well, our girl can be wild too when there's kiddos around. It's the fact. Not just her but with other kids in general.

She loves school so much. Everyday is an exciting day for her. My role as a mother, kung saan siya masaya ako siyang suportahan, di ba?....lolz! Mao nay motto sa Fantastic Force ha! I'm glad our girl is in a regular school enjoying her life as a Kindergartener.

Lord, I don't know how many times I have to say this but Thank you, thank you for putting our girl in our lives as a couple and to the whole family. I will do the best as I can do, while I'm still alive for teh sake of our one and only child.

Homework

It's September and our girl's assignment starts pouring at her early age. I can't believe it! What I'm thankful from Above that she's very diligent and has the enthusiasm to work on it.

Just for the weekend, they have to look for numbers around the house and draw a picture where they found the numbers. Continue reading the numbers, letters and writing names in lower case. There's a paper to use though and our girl just finished everything today.

Hopefully, she will keep up what she's doing right now. Dada and Mama are here to support her. When I'm at work, it's the Dada that teaches our girl how to write her name. She needs to work more on that matter.

Fish Tank

I just feed the hungry fish in our tank. Looking the water inside, I think it needs a fresh one.

One of these days, it's gonna be one of my major, major projects around the house.

Hubby said, he will do it and I just gave him a look. He knows what it is all about.

Anyway, I called our mower Guy if they can just cut our grass every other week instead of a weekly career for them...wink!

Well, it's close to the Fall season and seems like the grass is growing slowly. At least, I can save some bucks.

Hubby was shaking his head while I was on the phone. Well, I'm just being practical with all the bills that's coming every month. For sure, it's a never ending ordeal.

Going To The Movies

Authored by Rickey Combs

Every month, I take a trip to go to movies. I usually go with my wife. She frequently picks the movie, especially if there is a good movie out that she really would like to see. I have no problems with that, especially since she has good taste in movies. I always enjoy the movies she picks out to see. Occasionally, I will also go see the latest action movie that is showing with a couple of my co-workers. Regardless of who I go with, I usually go to the same local theatre in town. I like going to the same theatre because of the familiarity it gives me. It really has grown on me. I have gotten to know the layout of the movie theatre and exactly what to expect while I am there. Most often, I go during the early afternoon because of my work schedule. My shift ends in the morning, so I am able to take advantange of the sparse crowds during that time. I always make sure to lock my car in the parking lot, just to be safe. And although the theatre is fairly close, I still make sure to set my best home alarm system prior to leaving for the theatre. I've always enjoyed going to the movies, and I always look forward to my next trip there.
