Migraine Again?

Suddenly I feel weird waking up this morning. My head is aching, my nose is stuffy, and I feel kinda nauseous. Does it mean I am having migraine again?

I could not keep any kind of food down. My stomach is empty. I called my honey at work and asked if he can come home early today because I can hardly tend for my daughter. The nausea is really terrible and I feel miserable. This is unmanageable not like before.

My honey came home at 3pm. I was able to rest but still, couldn't eat well.

Grandpa's Health

I am a bit worried about my grandfather's health. It is off and on. I mean, today he feels day he is not. And still he wants to work in his farm. My grandpa is also maintaining an area of rice fields (that also consumes his energy). He was in a critical condition before. I am afraid it is coming back. My mother keeps on asking him to stay home and rest because she knows that working in the farm is very exhausting.

Farmers back home do not have retirement. They do not even have insurance plans. Instead of paying for the premium, they use the money to sustain the needs of their families. They do not think of their health anymore. Sad right?

The family is doing its best to help my grandpa care for his well-being. We still need him around.

We love you grandpa. Your great grand children are yet to see you.

No Time To Charge The Battery

My honey and I went to a gathering last night. It is a Wesleyan group Bible study. Our friend J invited us because they hosted the gathering. We brought our baby girl with us. Everybody welcomed our baby.

Baby girl was so behaved. She looked around and gave smiles to whoever talks to her. And when the facilitator started to speak, our baby girl chattered once in a while. She thought that the man is talking to her and she talks back.

Before we head to our friend's house, I made some Adobo. While cooking, I put important baby stuff in the diaper bag. My honey asked if I have the camera. I said yes. To be sure, I checked if it's in my purse. But when I turned the camera on, it was low battery. Ugh! There's no time for charging. I had no choice but leave it behind and told my honey about the problem. He said, "I guess you need to buy extra digital camera batteries so you have reserves in times like this. Don't you think?"

"Is that a go signal?" I asked. I barely heard his response. Anyway, the girls at the Bible study were so amused seeing our baby. The compliments are highly appreciated.

Weekend Snapshot: The Tank Is Clean!

Taken at a hospital, this indoor aquarium fascinated me. It has plenty of decor. You can tell that there is no water in there but if you look closely, the tank is full. It's just that, the water is very clear. Despite of its generous decoration, do you see a fish? I know there is only one. Can you tell where it is? What is the color?

MyBlogLog Closing?

Yahoo just sent an email to all MyBlogLog subscribers (including me) and customers saying that they are officially discontinuing the Yahoo! MyBlogLog service effective May 24, 2011. The email did not mention anything about the reason why Yahoo! MyBlogLog is to be discontinued.

I joined MyBlogLog since I started blogging and, so far, it has helped my blogs recognized. Oh well, I have to look for another blog community again.

Website Hosting For Me

It's been a long time that I have been thinking about this but still I couldn't make up my mind. Confused on what to do, I consulted a friend. She recommended someone who offers an affordable web hosting service. Yes, this is what bugs me right now (besides other matters).

I have to work on hosting my websites this year. But first, I need to understand how the shared web hosting works. I learned that it is the cheapest type of hosting. My friend's websites are shared hosted. And she hasn't experienced any problems with it. That's what I want. Problem-free. I cannot afford to entertain website problems right now. That is why I need a reliable hosting company that will provide an immediate solution if a problem comes up.

Vegetable Gardening With Hometown Seeds

Many things occupy my mind right now. Besides decorating my house, I also want to put up a garden this spring. My honey and I have had planned about this when we were in Fort Worth. He wants to have a vegetable garden again, and I would like to improve the flower garden.

Well, I think there is no holding back with the gardening task. I recently received a pack of herb seeds in the mail from Hometown Seeds. In the pack includes Dill, Oregano, Sage, Basil, name a few. I thought this is great to start the Spring. It is very nice of Hometown Seeds for sending me these herb seeds. If they grow well, we have culinary herbs for our cooking soon.

Decorating Our Home

I have been thinking about this few weeks after we get back to the house-to work on decorating our home. A huge painting job needs to be done. But my honey will be in-charge with that. My plan is to make the bathroom pretty. I would like to put an ornamental plant. And it would look nice on a stainless steel polished plant stand. The kitchen area needs some organizing for sure.

I also want the living room to look interesting. There are a couple of things needing replacement. The fireplace is clean but it would look better with the blomus stainless steel fireplace accessories. Stainless steel is easy to clean. So if we use the fireplace, it wouldn't be difficult for us to cleanse the stainless steel fireplace accessories.

On the other hand, the outside of the house needs beautification too. The bushes are due for a good trim. The flower garden is waiting for new shrubs. And we might want to put a new stainless steel mailbox at the driveway.

Lots of things to do. Honestly, I have no idea when to start.

Something On The Lighter Side

Don't diet, download a virus to remove the FAT.

Discovering an incompetent co-worker in your group is like finding a gold nugget in your flower garden. It's free money without the burden of extra work.

When solutions catch up to problems, boredom takes over.

Income Tax: The entry fee for the rat race.

Conversation: A vocal competition in which the one who is catching his breath is called the listener.

Tall And Sweet

I woke up late today. We did not sleep much last night because my baby woke up in the middle of the night wanting to eat. I am the one who always wakes up whenever my daughter squirms.

Like the previous Valentine's Day, my honey surprised me with chocolates. This time instead of flowers, he gave me this cute tall mug. Me and my baby has Valentine's cards too. As always, he makes my heart melt with his love notes.

Eye Exams: Saving Lives?

Your ophthalmologist can tell if you need glasses, but did you also know the eyes offer hints of important health problems? Changes in the retina can signal risks of diabetes, blood pressure and even foretell a stroke. Find a great eye doctor and schedule regular appointments so that any changes in your eyes are obvious to someone familiar with your history.

I used to look at eyes in the mirror. If I notice something different, I know I have to see a doctor.

Video Transfer Resource

Since our move back to the house, some of our stuff are still disorganized. We have clutters everywhere...still. I could not even find the blank CDs and DVDs. As far as I can remember, we have plenty of them in the box somewhere.

There are many important events that we have had recorded in a video for my family back home. There are also pictures stored in our video camera. What I need now is DVD duplicators so, if we transfer the videos to DVD, we will have our own copy too. And if we want to have copies of the pictures, it would be easy to do it in CD printers.

For now, I have to look for DVD duplication guide for some ideas and shopping resources.

Weekend Snapshot: Gemstones

My honey likes watching shop television. But the only show he watches is the jewelry shop at JTV or Jewelry Television. The station shows different kinds of jewelry and gemstones for sale.

Few days ago, my honey saw a parcel of gemstones for sale. They are 300ct gemstones. He has been thinking of buying this parcel for a long time, and now, he's got it. I am sorting the gemstones. They all look nice. I hope we can find some that has a huge value.

Hiding The Post-Pregnancy Bump

A friend came to see us in Tyler on my birthday. It is the first time we see each other but we have already been friends online. She is also a Filipina and lives in East Texas with her son and American husband. Her son is playful and funny.

We had a long chat about my delivery experience. I told her I had C-Section. "I thought so because you still have a belly," she said.

I asked if there is something I can do, for now, to kinda hide the post-pregnancy bump. My friend suggests to use a Seamless shape wear that will work as a girdle. It can be found at It's the place to find the Best body shaper for those who have post-pregnancy belly like me. Nice suggestion. Since I can only do moderate exercises, wearing a body shaper can make me look a little sexy.

Winter Snow Storm

It's winter storm in North Texas. The snow started falling down at midnight last night. The forecast says it will be cold until next week. Ah, winter weather.

I wish I can play in the snow but nah...maybe next time. We had about six inches of snow today. The road is sleek and scary to drive on. My honey went to work but came back home from halfway to his office because of the slippery road. We saw a couple of cars went into the ditch at the intersection close to our house. I am thankful he came home safe.

I hope you all have a safe weekend. Don't go out if not necessary. Enjoy the company of the family in this cool winter weather.

Car Trade

One of the things that I am thankful for is that I learned how to drive a car. This was a big achievement for me. Never in my entire life I got the chance to learn driving a car until my honey sent me to a driving school in 2009. He bought me a Toyota Scion that year too.

Scion has a high rating reviews online that is why my honey decided to buy it. Plus, the size of the car just suits me right.

When I found out about the new 2011 scion iq recently, I was thrilled of its features. What if I try trading my 2009 Scion? I don't know. There are things to be considered. But I might get tempted, you know. The scion iq launch this year 2011 will definitely catch people's attention. It caught mine.

Back To Driving

After the CS delivery and postpartum period, I feel much better now. Though I still feel mild pain once in a while, it is bearable. It is just my body getting back to shape. Also, I am back to driving now. My first drive after delivery and during postpartum was on Christmas eve. I bought our last minute Christmas presents for the party.

I can drive to my appointments now that my incision is healed and everything inside my body is back to normal.
