Payday Friday + My Gluta- C Collection

It's Friday payday! At long last payday na, hehe... I am always looking forward to our 30th/31st salary. Mas maluwag kasi kami with expenses during the end of month. Almost all of our bills payment due falls before, on or just after the 15th.

However, it maybe weird but this time I am not excited with what are we going to purchase. Surely we will go the grocery or market to buy our basic needs. Usually, we go to the grocery on the 4th day of the month because by that day, Daddy Allan's credit card has a billing statement na. As much as possible, we buy all the things, food and others that we need for the entire month. Then we go to the market once a week to buy fish, meat, vegetables and fruits. In that way, we can get rid of unplanned purchase. 

Though I can't say we are strict with this because there are times that suddenly we craved for a food and we don't have ingredients at home for that. Si Daddy Allan pa, ang maisipan, hehe...

Before anything else, let me share first my Gluta-C collection.

Busy Wednesday + My Little Singer

Hello everyone! I have been so busy with my work that's why I am missing for awhile. This is something I missed for the longest time and surprisingly, I love it. I have this brand new feeling that I am back at my track again to lead my group. For the longest time, I feel my work is not helping me to improve and I no longer feel fulfillment. Maybe because my mind set is with becoming a work at home mom. Now, I gave myself a chance to love my work again. So please bear with me, okay?

Moving forward... Being a working mom/wife is never easy, much more that I am also into crafts, crocheting and blogging. Sometimes I am surprise how can I manage my time to do all my duties. If there's one tip I can give is that leave your work at your work place. I do not bring work at home and I don't render overtime unless urgently needed. I go straight to our home after work, unless we need to go to the grocery or market. I am not saying forget about your social life and me time, which I can say I do not have right. But once in awhile going out with your friends, and or with your husband can be a great rest from all those duties.

At home, even if my day is full of stress and problems at work, I try not to show it to my son. Who can not be stress free when you see this little boy jumping while looking for pasalubong? Haha... Also, we are lucky that our helper is patient and keep our house clean. She will automatically ask us what she do or cook. Most of the times it's Daddy who cooks our dinner so I have no choice but to homeschool Matt while waiting for our dinner =)

Gratitude Project 2014: Thankful January

Yay! I know we are more than half through February and yet I'm posting my January Gratitude Project only now. But it's better late than never right?

Actually, I got inspired with Kat of The Unstressed when I read her Gratitude Project for 2014. But I think that time it's already half way January so I started the next day which is January 16. I decided to take photos each day that will symbolize what I am thankful for that day.

It's Fun to be Fit with Mom & Me!

Hello Momsies! Here's another Mom and Me event that will surely make your summer fun and fit.

From the Press Release Kit:

Keeping fit and healthy starts in the home. Kids need physical activity to build strength, coordination, and confidence and it is the parent’s responsibility to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. How can you do this, you ask? The answer is simple – engage in physical activities with them and make it a daily habit.

For kids, fitness means playing and being physically active. Once they enter nursery until they get to big school, exercise comes in the form of playing tag with friends, P.E. classes, and attending organized sports such as basketball or swimming. However, parents can no longer rely on physical education in schools to provide enough physical activity for kids. They need to play a more active role and make fitness a family routine.

This March, jumpstart the summer with Mom and Me: Fun To Be Fit, a series of health and fitness activities that both moms and kids will enjoy.

Our Lovely Valentine

Belated happy Hearts day! Sorry for not greeting you yesterday, busy lang po.

Remember what I have write a few days ago? Yesterday was our bestfriend's wedding. So we took a leave and off we went to Antipolo.

We woke early and left the house at around 6 in the morning. Hoping we will not catch the morning rush traffic. But still we encountered heavy traffic at Cubao and Ortigas areas. We reached Antipolo before 9 in the morning. The wedding ceremony started at 9 =)

By the way, we brought Matt with us. Daddy and I were contemplating to bring him because knowing Matt he really can't keep still for a long time. But there's always this guilt that won't let me leave him. Kasi naman this is just one of few days he can go out with us. So tiis ganda na lang ako sa pagpigil sa kanya. Thanks to my mini notebook and Tita Mare's pencil.

Feeling Lazy Tuesday + A Yummy Discovery

Hello everyone! How's your week so far? Me, I cannot really overcome the weekend hangover. It's always bitin e, one day lang kasi. Yesterday, I almost not completed my weekly report. It seems that I'm already losing my focus on my work. There's something missing already, or I am just hoping I can quit this job soon. Praying to be a work at home mom soon, in time it will. Sorry that I always write about that wishful thinking of mine :)

And guess what, Tuesday na but I'm feeling lazy pa din. I'm listing down a to do list for a week but I don't know where to start. Oh yeah, talking about losing my focus again. Hehe... 

The truth is, I'm more excited with tweaking my blog template. Yesterday, I have read about 10 Things that shouldn’t be on your blog. That's why I go through my blog and put out all (well, almost) that are not necessary. I'm also interested with how to make a blog template from scratch but just looking at the xml and html codes, naloka na ako. Hehe... I always want to learn how to design a blog. That's one work I should do when I'm WAHMy already. Wish-a-wish-a-wish-a-wish-wish-wish!

On Blogging and Writing

I must admit, I am not with English grammar. In fact, back when I was still in school, the lowest grade I always have was in English. That maybe one of the reasons why I chose a technical/science course. But of course, I can’t escape the English subjects because that’s included in our curriculum. And that technical writing was one of our requirements so we can conduct our thesis. It was really the hardest part of my college life, haha.

Homeschooling: Little Genius "Speller"

Hello everyone! It's Friday already. Ang bilis talaga ng araw ano? 

So how's your week? Busy still? Mine is just the usual week except that I have been such an emotional me =) I will not go into details but it's good that once in awhile I burst into tears and cry my heart out. It's kinda a relief when you have too much to bear. Apparently, my little boy doesn't want to see me crying. The next day he told me, "Mommy wag ka na po iiyak ha?" He's the sweetest I tell you. 

Aside from that he will kiss, loves and hug me. How? He will kiss me on my lips, loves by kissing me on my cheek and his power hug. Isn't he's so sweet? He will never hesitate to do it over and over again, tirelessly. I love this boy really. Thank God I have him and his Dad who understand me even at my "topak" mode, haha.

So that's how I was few days back and now, let me give you a little update about our homeschooling. Friday last week, which was a holiday because of Chinese New Year, we went to mall for no reason, hehe... We just feel we need to go out and have some fun. But no, I remember we promised to buy Matt a car so our first stop was Toy Kingdom.
