I am hoping for patient and lots of it. Hopefully, they will cooperate with this long journey specially that Jarod is not feeling well. He is having a old symptom after a bad stomach bug. Poor baby. All I can ask if from guide most specially to blessed us our long way home. God blessed us all.

Lovely newborn hats.

Do you know that baby hats are essentials to newborns? Yes, and when I gave birth twice I used this newborn hats to keep them warm, comfortable and also pretty. They really need it and I'm glad I did. So, if you are looking for this high quality, affordable and long lasting newborn hats. Please visit their website and choose from the different styles, colors, designs that you might like for your baby. I am sure that your baby will like it and will look very nice on it. They will make them feel comfortable being outside specially this time of the year.

So, check out their website now and see if you like it as much as I do. You can also, give this newborn hats to a friend that is expecting on her baby shower. Or to your kids if you have toddler kids too. He or she will benefit to a hat. Have a happy holidays and be warm.

Going to the beach.

We went to the beach here in Manhattan this afternoon. Maddie and JArod had a wonderful time in the beach. It's JArod first time to see the beach and MAddie's second but now she is more aware now than the first time we took her here. She was only a year at that time. Now, she enjoyed it more and is very happy playing with sands. While Jarod on the other hand was busy chasing and calling the birds in this Manhattan pier. It was lovely here in this little breezy afternoon. We didn't stay long because of the weather but we all had a wonderful time out there. Jarod started getting cold and so we decide to go home. It was a fun afternoon to do things with kids. Have a goodnight all.

Gift Giving Made Easy

Thanks for the post from Barney Crosby

Having your family spread out all over the world is tough at Christmas. I live in North Carolina but my parents are in New York. My grandparents are in Florida, my brother and his family are in California and my sister and her kids are in Colorado. Needless to say, we don’t usually get together during the holidays. In the past I have always shopped for everyone’s gifts, brought them home, wrapped them, then made the trip to the post office to ship them. This year I decided to give myself a gift. I got HughesNet Packages so I could not only shop online but ship as well. I purchased everyone’s presents online and had the gifts shipped directly to the recipients. I figured with the money I saved in gas and time, I could afford to spend a little extra for the gift wrap option. It’s amazing how much more enjoyable the holidays have been for me this year without the work of shopping and shipping. I can’t believe I’ve just now discovered this but in the future it will be the only way I give gifts!

Maddie's new bike.

We just got back from the store. We went to get Maddie her princess bike. It is a little big for her right now but maybe this coming summer she can use it. Anyway, Jarod can use Maddie's old bike. Maddie and Jarod helped hubby assembled the bike and they we're al very excited and happy. Even hubby and I was just the bystander watching Jarod before he get in trouble with Maddie. All in all it was a fun night for us.

Eating out.

Hubby got home early and I am not feeling well today. My throat really hurts even in talking. So, as an excuse to say I didn't cook. Really? I mean really I am not feeling well. Ask my kids. Anyway, we ( I mean) Maddie, started the cold and then Jarod got it. Now, it's my turn. I guess all the sleepless nights caring for jarod lowers my immune system. So, here we are eating in the restaurant because we are hungry and mommy is not cooking dinner. It's not good I know but I guess once in awhile is okay too. So, enjoy your food everyone.

Coming Home

Guest post written by Derick Burks

Being back home again in Philly feels great, if not hectic. Living in a big city is tough because of all the people and traffic and things like that but you know, I like feeling the energy of the city under my feet. Since I’m a single woman I decided to get my own condo so I could really live my life like I’m supposed to do. I’ve been getting the place all fixed up the way I like it – painting the walls, getting adt philadelphia and even changing out the tile in the bathroom – all with my brother’s help, thanks Gary! I’m just happy to live on my own and not have to worry about roommates and stuff and you know, at the end of the day, owning my own house is going to be great. I finally feel like a grown woman and being able to say I take care of myself means to me that I’ve really arrived and that I’m a functioning adult. I can only imagine what the next few years will hold!

Going to Aspen for the Snowmass balloon festival.

Maddie and I are getting excited to go to Aspen for the Snowmass balloon festival this coming Saturday. First, we are going to celebrate Jarod's birthday at Cinzitti's restaurant with some friends. Then, head to Aspen after. We are about 11 people including kids. It's really going to be fun. We rented a 3 bedroom and a loft condo and so we might just cook in their. Maddie can't stop talking about her friend coming with us. She is really excited. Have a good afternoon guys.

MidWestern Transplant.

Thanks to Wm Rowe

We recently moved from Chicago to Atlanta. I feel like I am in another country. I don’t know many people here and have been exhausting Angie’s list trying to find the best handymen. In Chicago, we were set. We used home security Chicago for our alarm system and the staff was very helpful. I had gotten a recommendation from a friend who used them before. Unfortunately in Atlanta, I know no one and don’t have anyone to give me recommendations. I also found a great gas company when we were in Chicago. This week, I have already gotten quotes from four different painters. The quotes were so expensive! I don’t know if the prices they gave were the going rate or if they were trying to nickel and dime an unsuspecting Midwestern transplant. Until I get everything settled, I am going to devote all my time and energy to tying up loose ends around the house. Hopefully it won’t take too much longer. It would just be so much easier if we were back in Chicago!

Swimming time.

We had a lovely time with family this afternoon in the swimming pool. Maddie was really enjoying a lot in the water that she had a tantrum when it is time to go home because she was already shivering. Hubby's family was there too and so was Jarod. It was a fun day at the pool. Hope will do it again.

MGM: My favorite park at Disney.

Guest post written by Keith Morgan

I don't like to play favorites, but when it comes to something like Disney parks, there's definitely one that is an obvious favorite for me. I've always loved MGM Studios so much more than the other parks because it seems like it has an edge that other parks don't have. Plus, I'm huge into movies and this park kind of plays off of the whole movie industry, so that's another reason that it's an obvious favorite for me.

I live not too far away from Orlando, so sometimes I'll just go to that park for fun rather than going to all of the parks in a span of few days like most people do on their vacations there. I was looking up some info on the park because I'm thinking about going again in a few weeks and while I was doing my research, I ran across some info on home wireless internet and after I read it I decided to Click Here for more information and get it.

But my favorite part of that whole park is the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. It's just so cool and thrilling, something that isn't as prevalent at Walt Disney World as regular theme parks. I just love the whole spooky atmosphere of it too.

Rainy weekend.

What a rainy weekend. Instead of us going to the park we ended up staying at home. It rained for two days and what an allergy I have right now. Hopefully, this rain is going to wash away all the allergens. I am thinking of taking some supplements to help me with this allergy. I have heard that it's really good in your throat, nose and ear area. Hopefully, it will work. Anyway, have a goo night guys. See you around.

What a waste.

I didn't check my blog for a while and I lost a guest post. What a waste. Anyway, here I am now updating my site. Hopefully, it will come back. I woke up really early today for my 7:00am dental appointment and I just got back. While the two kids are still sleeping I am trying to do some blogging here. It's rare that I can do this if they are awake. Though I want to take some sleep but maybe after this. Have a good day guys.

surreal satellite sitcoms.

Written by my friend Otis Buckley

Friends has to be one of my favouite television sitcoms ever. It is fantstic to watch and has some hillarious one line jokes and phrases which I have tried to incorporaate into my life with excellent results. Matt LeBlank who plays sexaholic Joey in the sitcom is awesome. His character Joey is a slightly dense yet straight talking person who lives life to the full. He is the main character and is the top name in our family of sitcom stars that we would like to meet. everyday as the choice is just so amazing with features to suit our busy life styles. The plots in the series vary and many resemble real life problems mainly dealing with relationship issues but in a caring and funny way. All the characters address life with a glass half full attitude rather than pessimistically looking at life with a glass half empty style. This is a bonus to people watching who can relate to the problems and will see their own problems with a more lighter attitude.

My sister's birthday.

Today, is my sister's birthday. I already called her wishing her a very happy birthday. I asked her what they are going to do for her birthday remembering that her husband surprised her with a little celebration last year. But she said nothing this year. It's not all birthday that she will have a party. I told her it's find that I don't have a party in my birthday at all. Not even for my kids. Anyway, happy birthday sis. All it matter is that God will shower you with good health, happay marriage and kid this year. Good luck.

Leaving for Manila.

My sister Jeanette is going to Manila with her husband today. They are going t be there for a week visiting her husband's family. Hopefully, they will have a good time. Going back to Bohol they will be visiting my brother in Cebu. Also, she will help him find a place to stay in Cebu City. He has been living with my aunt in Mactan and it's quite far for him to go to his workplace. Hopefully, they will find the best place for him to stay.

Housing report.

In today's economy there are a lot of people who are facing financial problem thus leading them to foreclosed their houses. We don't want that to happen to anyone but those things are beyond our control. It might be someones misfortune but can be your fortune. If money is not a problem then investing a property in Santa Cruz County is a good idea. There are a lot of properties that are foreclosed right now based on the Santa Cruz home sales report. Also most properties are facing decrease property values. Investing this type of properties will gain you a lot of profit in the long run by purchasing it in a very low price and selling it later when the economy and housing market recover. Isn't that a great idea?

You might be living in Mission Viejo, Southern California area and wants to know the housing report in this area. There's a good thing, despite a distress in housing market. This area showed strong signs of progress. But I have a friend who lived here but has to moved out of state because of the job. What about living in the San Francisco Bay area. I have been wanting to live here to see the beautiful San Francisco bridge all the time. Maybe I should consider it this time considering the affordable houses now that this area has to offer.

Finally they got it.

It has been two months since hubby sent a watch to my brother-in-law and we we're already thinking that they are not going to get it. Last night, my sister called me that finally they got it and that her husband was really happy. He wore it right away to work even if it was not charged. It's an eco-drive watch and so you need to expose it to light to get charge. Anyway, he is driving a motorcycle and so he will charge it just by wearing it. I am so happy that finally they received it because hubby said that if they don't received it we will not send anymore package there. So, happy for you sis.

Does Back To School Mean Good Grades?

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes

I got the kids up and off to school on time this morning. I am so proud of myself. They were eager to get going to, so what is up? I thought they would be hard to even get out of bed this morning much less ready to get dressed early. I guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth huh?

Well, I guess I should have expected that, but I really was surprised. We have been talking about how exciting it would be to see all their friends again after such a long break. They even got lots of great clothes for Christmas which always makes them feel great. With new backpacks to go with that, I think they were ready to go show off their new stuff to everyone at school, including the teachers.

When we left the house this morning, Bonnie even reminded me to set the home security alarm (ADT SECURITY SYSTEM). This has been her job all during the break, so I guess she was giving it back to me. You should have seen them racing to the door when they got out of the car. I am so proud of the way they like to go to school That means that they are eager to learn as well as see their friends. I hope it also means good grades.
