Bye Nikita!

I feel bad for my sister-in-law's little dog Nikita because the veterinarian might put her to sleep. Nikita had another broken disc on her back and they can't fix it no more. She had been to a lot of operation so they inform my sister-in-law that it is a must to put her to sleep.

I know that my sister-in-law will be affected because she has that little dog Nikita for a long time. She treats her as if she is her own little baby girl, she is part of their family already. Hopefully, my sister-in-law will be able to recuperate after the dog pass away.

What to Do if Your Children Are Brats

This is a continuation from an article that I read at Oprah website.

1. Reward good behavior and punish bad behavior.

2. f your children yell when they want something, don't give it to them and take away something they like.

3. If they won't get off the floor during a tantrum, pick them up and put them in their room until they calm down and apologize.

4. If they ignore you when you tell them to do something, punish them immediately. Put them in a corner and don't let them out until they apologize.

5. If they won't share, take away the toy or treat.

6. Don't buy them whatever they want. Make them earn things.

7. If they keep a messy room, don't let them out until it's clean.

8. Enforce bedtimes. Continually put them back into their beds. After a while, they'll stop getting out. You must show there is no other option.

9. Compliment your children profusely and give them rewards when they do the right thing.

Take note: Although I have no children of my own but I can attest that this things work. My mother is a disciplinarian and I commend her for that. She truly is a wonderful mother. She discipline us because she loves us so much. I am very proud to say that she did well raising her 12 children and that includes me.

Are Your Children Spoiled?

I have read this article at Oprah website. Here are the list of the signs when your children are spoiled brats:

1. They resort to crying or yelling when they want something.
2. They throw themselves on floor and won't get up.
3. They constantly throw tantrums or even hit you when you punish them.
4. They ignore you when you ask a question.
5. They are rude to other adults and even to other children.
6. They refuse to share toys or treats with other children.
7. They are show-offs and are constantly trying to one-up their peers to be the center of attention.
8. They always want whatever everyone else has. Once they have it, they want something new.
9. They keep a messy room and never help out around the house despite your pleas for them to do so.
10. They refuse to go to bed.

So ask yourself are your children brats?

Do You Shop at Thrift Stores?

My sister-in-law is a person who likes to go to thrift stores. She actually has money to shop in the expensive shopping malls but she likes to go to the thrift stores when she gets bored of shopping in the mall. I've been to a thrift store when I was looking for something cheap to wear for work or for times when I stay at home. I buy other items from thrift stores from time to time, such as purses, books, and electronics and my husband purchases old video games. They have plenty of second hand clothes that you can still wear. Though, you have to check the entire store to find the most wearable clothes; but its worth the effort and time if your budget is low.

I shop at the mall once in awhile but not all the time. The clothes at the malls are way too expensive. We only shop there if we can find good discounted item especially during holidays, and we purchase winter clothing in the spring and summer, and summer and spring clothing in the winter, those are the best times to purchase clothing at name brand stores.

Dinner's Ready

I am very happy because I don't have to cook our dinner tonight. My hubby's step mother gave us a big bowl of "Mule Poblano" or otherwise known as "sauce" a Mexican dish. It has garlic, raisins, meat, pepper, sugar and has dark chocolates. You can pair it with Spanish rice or bread.

In the future I would like to attempt in making this kind of dish but the process is quite complicated.

They live and work in Manila but they were not able to come home last Christmas and New Year due to their schedule at their working place.

I want go home so bad but I have to wait. It takes a lot of time to plan, a lot of money and effort to travel especially that our economy right now is not stable. Hopefully if all goes well, we will be able to visit my family in the Philippines later this year.

In Style!

How many pairs of Women's Shoes do you have? I like to wear the appropriate shoes based on what I wear for that day. You will actually feel very good when you wear something nice.

He likes the one that is in style or in the fashion trend. I myself would love another pair of running shoes but I'll wait and see.

But I spend time online especially if my family is online because I chat with them or do voice chatting online. It is a form of communication for me to my family back in the Philippines. When I'm online I check my emails, upload pictures or upload music and many more. There are plenty of things you can do online from buying products online or selling things online.

I also make sure that before I am stuck on the internet; I do my chores and the food is ready so when my husband comes home we will just heat up the food and eat.

Fantastic Valentines Eve!

We are celebrating our Valentines Day ahead of time because we both work tomorrow. We both had our day off today and we went to the mall and do our little shopping spree. He bought clothes for me and I bought him clothes as well. We went to the movies and we watch the movie "Taken". After we watch the movie we went back to the mall and just looking around visiting our favorite stores like Victoria's Secret, Bath and Body Works, Aeropostale, Anchor Blue, Old Navy, EB Games and many more.

And then after that we went to Red Lobster to have our dinner date. I ordered Cajun Chicken Linguine and my husband ordered seafood platter with Crab cake, clams and fish. We both had a great time together and we are just happy that our love and respect for each other grow stronger every single day. I am so touch with the card that he gave me as well as the sweet note that he wrote for me.

I just want to share how grateful I am for having such a wonderful, loving and responsible husband. Tony I love you dearly.

If I have the chance to start collecting dollhouse miniatured I would definitely would buy the living room dollhouse accessories.

The Eyes are the Window to the Soul

I have been trying to get my eyeglasses for awhile now but I don't have enough money to do that right away. I have to consider my finances and go through our budget just to make sure that we can still do that soon.

I feel lucky when I found Zenni Optical because they have the best selection of prescription eyeglasses online. The best thing about them is that they have the cheapest, the most stylish and very unique frames of eyeglasses. You can find eyeglasses at $8 and it has a stylish frame, an anti scratch coating, a full UV protection and more features included.

The New York Times recognizes Zenni Optical in one of their articles. They mention that Zenni Optical sells generic frames and if you don't want to break your wallet or your savings, go grab a pair of their eyeglasses for $8 only. The price of their eyeglasses ranges from $8 and up. They have different eyeglass categories such as Children Frames, Rimless Frames, Pure Titanium Frames, Women's Fashion and many more.

Maybe you wonder how they can sell such cheap eyeglasses. The answer is that they sell only their own product straight to their customers. When you order your eyeglasses you will only pay a flat rate of $4.95 for the shipping and handling.

I also included a picture of my favorite eyeglass from Zenni Optical.

Human Heart

Did you know that the human heart does not really look like the shape of the Valentines heart? The human heart is about the size of a fist. The heart is a muscle with lots of blood supplied on it thus it looks like a red meat. Most people have heard that the heart is on the left side of the chest. In reality, the heart is in the middle of the chest, tucked snugly between the two lungs. What does the heart actually do? The heart is a pump that pushes blood throughout the body. The heart moves blood by expanding and contracting (getting bigger and smaller).

"Each living part of the body needs blood to live, and that's why it's important for the blood to go to different parts of the body.

When you're exercising, it takes your blood about ten seconds to get from your heart to your big toe and back. In fact, a kid's heart has to push blood through about 60,000 miles (96,560 kilometers) of blood vessels—that's long enough to circle the Earth two and a half times!

All that pumping takes a lot of effort. To push blood, an average heart beats a hundred thousand times a day. That means that in a lifetime, the average human heart will beat more than two and a half billion times.

A friendly reminder also to everyone that February also is " American Heart Month".

I have read this article from National Geographic.

Save MONEY.. by doing the OLD-FASHIONED WAY"

As the economy struggles, everyone’s trying to make ends meet. So here are some ways to cut your budget and save money.

1. Instead of buying food at your working place or anywhere else you can bring brown bag lunches.

2. Instead of going to the hair salon for a hair color retouch why not do it.
Don’t go more than two shades lighter or darker than your normal hair color or you might have to pay even more to get a professional to fix your home dye job disaster.

3. Sewing and Ironing- your own clothes rather than going to the dry cleaners.

Camping and fishing- A lot of people are out of work, or have been forced into early retirement. So they’re looking for less expensive hobbies, and low-cost, closer-to-home vacations.

Sweets and Treats

Did you know that there are many types of Candy Bars? Candy bars can be divided into several different categories such as candy bars with nuts, candy bars with chocolate, candy bars with licorice, candy bars that are sour flavored, chewy candy bars, flavored candy bars, and peanut butter candy bars. I bet we've all tasted these different types of candy bars.

Children are not the only ones who love to munch on candies, adults like to eat candies too. One of my favorite candy bars is the Milky Way Candy Bar. There's really something special about the Milky Way candy bar. The taste of chocolate and caramel blended together, make this candy bar very delicious and very sweet. I really love the Milky Way Candy Bar because I like the sensation when it's melting in my mouth. My husband knows that this is one of my favorite candy bars.

The good thing about this is that you can buy it in many different sizes. You can get the Milky Way candy bar in "bite size" or you can get them in "fun size". Aside from those two sizes that I mentioned earlier you can also buy the Milky Way candy bar by its "regular size" or "king size".

Save Your Money When You Travel

Can you believe that you can still save money while traveling? Believe it or Not.

1. If you’d like to save money on hotel rooms, one person mentioned in the article had an interesting tip. The person said that they once worked at a hotel that had something called the “Flagpole Room” – because on windy nights, the flagpole on the roof of the hotel would vibrate and make a weird noise in that room. They always discounted it and sold it with a disclaimer. So now, when this person travels, they seek out these “hard-to-rent” rooms. They’ve stayed in a “Boiler Room,” an “Elevator Room,” an “Ice Machine Room,” and a room with a missing television. They say that if you don’t plan on being in the room much and you use ear plugs, you don’t notice the imperfections and can save money.

2. If you’re looking to save money on airline tickets, another person mentioned in the article swears by the travel website It monitors fares even after a ticket is purchased, and will help you get a refund if the fare goes down. The person said when the price dropped on a ticket they’d already bought, they were able to get a credit to use on another flight.

3. What about drinks? One person said they’ve saved hundreds of dollars on road trips by buying a giant thermos. They take the thermos into gas stations and fill it to the brim with coffee. Every single gas station that they’ve been to charges less than a dollar to do this.

4. Food. How can you save money here? You could try staying at hotels where rooms come equipped with kitchenettes or, at the very least, microwaves and coffee makers. That way, you can make your own food. One person mentioned in the article brings packets of oatmeal. You heat up the water in the coffee maker, dump the oatmeal into a coffee mug, and you have a healthy, economical breakfast. Also, shop at local grocery stores where the prices are much lower.

This weekend, we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant here in our place to have our lunch. The food was delicious; I and my hubby both loved it. After we eat, the waiter gave us our bill. Well, I am not too sure if you also noticed that every time we eat at a Chinese restaurant that they will gave you "fortune cookies" together with the bill.

I open my fortune cookie and there's always a little note that you will find inside the cookie. The note on my fortune cookie says "You will step on the soil of many countries in your lifetime". It actually surprises me a lot and I giggled while telling my hubby and letting him read the note. My husband told me, well Geraldine you already step two soils of the two countries you've been. First, is the Philippines were you came from and second is the US were you now lived.

So it made me think that maybe I will be able to travel to other countries in the future, who knows?
