SIL New Beau

Again DH is right about her sister new found BF. Actually not new found because they been together for two years now. In the very beginning he put on an act that can not pass from DH eyes. He knew that he is only putting this act because it's just over the top.

They got engage in the middle of November and sure enough, bam! just old regular self again. At one point he came to our house riding a bike just to say hi to the kids. He said that since he was in our area he may as well say hi to them. Duh, they all play us. I fell so bad for the kids. The old man who was so playful and happy turn into an old grumpy not so cheerful man.

We hope that he is treating my SIL much better than her now ex-husband. Why did she always end up with these kind of people? Is she that soooo nice that she makes excuses for their actions? Is she the kind of person that sugar coats everything? I hope not because her family are not like that. Well at least DH is not, my MIL is as awake as DH but she can sugar coats anything. Maybe she got that genes 100% from her mother, who knows.

I hope she is treating her right, because if not he is not allowed in our house. Plus DH is already mad at him for playing games with our kids. We can't believe he played them like the way he did. He is a jerk!

DH Tag

Thanks FilipinoLifeabroad for this tag. Yes it bring back memories and remembering why we fell in love in the first place.

Here are the simple rules:
1. Pick your sweetest picture together, when you were still friends and post it on top of the questions and answers.
2. Another picture now that you are together post it after the questions.
3. Share to many friends you like.
4. Enjoy doing it
5. Let your hubby read it too.

Can you remember the day you first met your hubby? When was that?
All I remember was it was a weekend. I worked late as usual and we met after work which was after 11pm. He got a drill that weekend and we decided to met since he was in town for it. He was watching the parking lot the whole time he was waiting for me and paid my entrance fee to get in to our local pub. So he already know what I look like in person before seeing each other. I had to ask the door man to tell me who paid and pointed to the man on the bar, whom was not looking in my direction. (That was July 1998)

First impression...?
He is very handsome, have a nice smile, have a dimple like myself, and very noticeable ears.

Were you friends before when he became your bf?
Somewhat friends and dating at the same

What was the sweetest thing he did for you?
He drove all the way to Jersey City just to buy me a tagalog movie. Which I don't care much because tagalog movies are so predictable and they act so poorly. However I found it very sweet. Also when we go driving (sight seeing) and he will decide to go on a holiday while driving around. We only did it once, we end up in Canada Niagara Falls on a weekend vacation with no We bought a change of clothes when we got there. Those are days that you don't need a passport to go out of the country.

What are the things about him that you are thankful for?
There are so many but I will summarize it to one word, "CONSERVATIVE".

The Reason For The Season

Have a Merry and safe Christmas!!!

School Projects

Here are a few of DD projects from school. She loves anything about art. Even when she is off from school she still do drawings, paintings, cutting snow flakes, paper people etc, and she also did the Christmas cards for her Aunt and grandparents.

A lot of you know this one. We are covering the Asian continent on her History lesson and this is the Chinese lantern. As a kid we used this to decorate our house on Christmas and New Year with construction paper chain in between. I didn't know these used to bring luck also. I thought my parents only use them for decorations. Now I know. I'm learning along with my kids :).

This one is supposed to be a sunflower but she insisted to use pink construction paper, plus we don't have sunflower seeds and I gave her what is available from our kitchen. This is part of her Science lesson learning about living and non-living things.

Ni Hao!!! This one is also part of her History lesson about China. The dragon supposed to bring good luck to everyone. Fu!

Christmas Break

ODS still have school until Tuesday. My homeschoolers last day is today. They are so happy when I told them we are on Christmas brake until January. I hesitated a little to let them know but I need a break myself. We could have continue and only skip Christmas day but I will let them decide later on when they started to get bored.

They already went outside and play today. Our very first big snow of the year. We had a few already but this is the very that they can pick and throw snow at each other. The few that we had were not high enough to make anything.

Anyway, I don't have to worry about Christmas dinner this year. My SIL decided to have it in her house (my FIL house actually,she lives in one of my FIL house) because her new beau fixed it not too long ago. I'm not really sure about the story why all of the sudden she decided to do it in her house. Anyway, DH has the same right as she is in that house so I'm not worried about the new beau's doing if ever something is up.

All I wanted to do is relax and drop ec as much as I can. Pathetic isn't

Such a Crappy Day

Gloomy, rainy and with that it's wet outside. Yuck, I hate going outside in this kind of weather. I rather be inside, with all my daylight fluorescent light bulbs on. It's not helping with my cough and cold either.

Tropical countries why are you so far away. All I can do is look at the pictures I find googling online of the tropics. I saw MommaWannabe's picture under the sun somewhere in Palawan Island and I am jealous. I wish I am under the hot sun too. I bet I can get rid of these cough and cold as soon as I step foot there.

Oh well, time to take more Vitamin C.

Free Ringtones For The Holiday

Who is going beyond being festive this season? Well not me, I will do what I can but not beyond. Like I said below I don’t even know how to manage the little time I have to myself these days. My house is not decorated; however I used to do it every year before I had three children. I can still do it, however it means that the time I spend with my children will be less if I have to do it. My blogs are festive, that’s good enough for me :).

My sister in law is the opposite though; her children are all in their late teens and early twenties. They have some life of their own now and they also appreciate festive lifestyle. Each one of them has their own free Sprint real music ringtones . My husband always shakes his head every time he calls them, because he does not appreciate it much. Our cell service is Verizon and I’m sure my son will like to have their free Verizon real music ringtones but he is grounded right now. In my opinion he can’t have gratuity until he shows some improvement.

In the other hand my sister in California likes to treat herself often, and she uses free at&t cingular ringtones . I know because that is the only service she gets. She doesn’t have any other choice but to go with them. I like their roll over minutes however, Verizon don’t have this feature. If you are interested to download free tmobile ringtones or other ringtones, please click the links I added in this post. You can download free ringtones for your cell phones by visiting this sites. Have a good day everyone.

Look What DH Brought Home

Yup, this what what he brought home Thursday afternoon from NJ. We talk about getting a kitten after all of our DC are potty trained. Nope, they are not trained yet, I still have our youngest one to work on.

Don't get me wrong I love the the kitty, but he is giving me another job to do by taking her home without asking me. I wasn't mad at all, but as soon as he gives me the responsibility then I get mad. The same thing when he bought the fish. I told him I am not cleaning it and he got so mad at me. Telling me that is very easy to do blah blah blah. I done it before, I like doing it when I'm the one who wanted it. However when he does it on his own, he is on his own to train the cat to go outside and to clean the fish tank.

I don't even know how to divide the little time I have now. And he kept adding more to it. I have to put my foot down and give him the responsibility. I wish that I am a super woman to do everything, but I am still human. Who gets sick and need time for myself even it's only 15 minutes a day. Man, I can't understand them.

Jersey Shore

Why is it nice to go to the beach in the summer? I grew up in an island and living far away from it makes me miss it a lot more. Not to mention the fresh breeze in the morning, but I’m not very fond of typhoons. However, you don’t need to talk me into living at the beach, I would come in the heart beat, tell me where it is and I’m there. The closest beach we have is about two hours and a half drive from my house. The best part of the Jersey shore is the water park. You will find the best water parks in New Jersey at Morey Pier. Have you been there yet?

You should take a Jersey Shore beach vacation to find out. Furthermore, by buying your seasons pass you will save 40 percent to both water parks. If you don’t have anything good to give to your relatives or love ones this Christmas, why not buy tickets and season passes as a gift. However, you better act fast because they are only on sale until January 9th 2009. I would love to go there along with my family; it’s been a long time since we went on vacation. And I’m sure that my children will enjoy going there.

Another B-day Party

This is the 3rd birthday party my DD attended in the month of November. I know this post is was past due. Here she is one wearing a pink leotard, the party was held in a gymnastic school.

From what my SIL told me, she had a lot of fun. She even ate all the food that was given to her. (I didn't take her because I rather stay home clean the house and cook dinner for the family). The very first birthday we went to, she hardly touch the food but drank a lot of juice.

I wanted to give her a birthday party also, but her birthday is in May. Meaning it's not really nice outside yet, our house is not fit for 25 people. We don't have a big family, but when everyone comes our house looks very full with only 12 yup it's right. So, the party will be held outside in the yard. Plenty of room and everyone have a place to sit, if we invite her B&M school class.

Holiday Frames

While visiting blogs today, I saw many bloggers who switch their themes to holiday layouts. Furthermore, I am one of the guilty ones who done so. I can’t help myself, I had to because I like looking at the holiday themes, and the web designers are doing such a great job putting the color contrast on their designs. I envy them and I would like to learn how to make those too.

Not only the bloggers layouts change this season, you can see it everywhere. A lot of homeowners decorate their houses, stores, churches, and people wears fashionable clothing and eyewear. And speaking of eyewear, have you seen the Holiday frames at Zenni Optical? If I wear glasses, I will pick the red and green color frames because they go will with the season, don’t you think so?

Zenni Optical carries a variety color frames, don’t take my word for it visit them today. You can also change the frames of your sunglasses if you want a festive look for Christmas. I don’t wear eyeglasses but I would like to change the color of my sunglasses frame because my children sat and steps on it so many times that I lost count. Furthermore, if you are looking for affordable glasses you can visit Zenni Optical and find just that.

Still Not Well

I hate when DS (2nd grader) get sick. When he get sick he always get it worst than the others. If his sibling get it for 3 days, he will have it for 6 days. I don't have to worry much if he takes everything I give him to get better, but no. It's always a struggle to get him take anything. We always worry about him more than the others.

I hope he grow out of it soon. I remember when my oldest turned 10 years old, he eats everything like a bottomless pit. I can't wait for that day, I will shove every single healthy food on him when it comes to catch up on his health.

I hope he gets better soon.

Smooth Lustrous Pearls

When I got married 9 years ago, I was wearing my favorite pieces of jewelry made out of pearls. And the dress I was wearing was covered with tiny beads of pearls including my veil. The dress is given to me by my older sister who lives in California and the veil was made by her too. That is one of the best parts of being the youngest sibling in the family. Having older siblings had so much to offer to the youngest ones, and they still baby me even though I’m already grown up. However, being the youngest one brings a lot of not so good advantages also. Furthermore, if you are the youngest child, you know what I am talking about.
I love any color Pearls that are available in the market: from natural, white, pink, peach, lavender, blue, chocolate, golden, cranberry red, and black colors. They all look very nice with the right color dresses. I don’t mind receiving a pearl necklace just like the images above. They can be found at The Pearl Outlet, quality pearls at wholesale prices. This is another gift idea for your love ones this holiday season. Please visit the site to see their collections with guaranteed Christmas delivery on all orders placed by December 22nd. You can also enter to win 12.5mm South Sea Pearl Pendant by just visiting.

Tyson Chicken

You probably saw this in your local grocery store that Tyson label their chicken "raised without antibiotics that impact antibiotic resistance in humans". But this is not true because it was proven that they use antibiotic and injected to the eggs before they hatched. And they are saying the chickens can be truthfully be said to be "raised without antibiotics" because the chicken are not hatched yet. They think that people are stupid and will never find out. Wow. it's all about money, isn't it.

I can never be sure about commercialize products these days anymore. You may as well grow everything you need to survive this world. Then, when everyone are raising and planting their own food they will come and tell you that you are not allowed to do it anymore. They will tell you that you don't have the right to these seeds that are GM by certain companies.

I would probably ask my parents to send me a single egg to grow and start my own chicken farm for our own use, and the same thing with seeds. My cousin goes to visit his family every Christmas, maybe he can hide it in his luggage

This is the new America for you people.
