Too much stuff to do

It is a long school break for the kids ,, my Primary school kids have 6 weeks off while my High school girl have 8 weeks off, aside from going out with friends , she is also working 2 -3 times a week .. We are also almost finishing building the house and hopefully will be moving by the end of January ,,, but there are still heaps of stuff to do ,, overwhelming and making us feel lazy to do stuff.. I was looking at the kids room and checking out which are the things to be purged ,, although we already purged a lot of stuff before we move in here in the rental place ,, I still feel that I still need to do some more purging ,, like for example ,, do we really need to bring the sports trophies of my kids to the new house??? Before I almost forgot I still have the baby cot and changing table in the garage ,, which I told myself that I will put on Ebay ,, but never had a chance to do it.... I promise myself that I have to be inspired and start working and moving my butt so I can can accomplish things .... Yes starting the year 2011

Opening of gifts

It was a really hot day here in Oz on Christmas day ,,,  Christmas morning , the kids woke up early , really early!  they went to our room and woke up too ,, really excited and nagging us to go down and check out the gifts that Santa left for them....
We have to get out of bed and dash downstairs to check it out ,, True enough !!! Santa passed by !!
Yippee as the kids gleamed with excitement ...  Ok Santa's gifts first and my boy was wo happy and the expression on his face was priceless as he opened the gift , there was his sought after Buzz Lightyear from The Toy Story 3 movie ,, yes ,, Santa checked his letter and the elves did a great job ,,,  my lil princess on the other hand received a dress up trunk , then time to unwrap the gifts from Mummy and Daddy ,, boy had a toy hunting binoculars  which he loved ,,,  Thomas the Tank Mystic Island rescue and some bits and pieces of small toys ,, girl received a Fur real play set and a Bratz doll ..  yes its been such a good Christmas ,, kids are spoilt and had a great fun,,,  so what's in for next year?????

Late shopping

On the eve of Christmas I went to the shops around 3 pm ,, yes I consciously went to the shops that time to avoid the traffic,, hard to park , Oz heat , rushing and frantic people ,, and that is the best way to shop when most of the people are exhausted and on the way home.. There is also heaps of SALE the last minute sale when most of the retailers put their items futher down ..
I still have to get something or my hubby's grandparents,, browsing through the chocolate items, Organic Food Gift Baskets ,, wine section and plants ,, choices choices ,, lots of them and all wrapped up ... But I ended up getting them a box of nice chocos..
With kidsin the trolley I walked briskly and went to the grocery to buy some ingredients for our cookies for Santa , done shopping in a flash and I was glad that I went there at that time of the day ...Merry Christmas everyone!

No need to worry yet

Yeahh,, its the time of the year again .... Festive season means a lot of parties, get together and merry making,, and it wouldn't be complete without drinking and eating ..
I was 5 kilos lighter last year because we were going on a holiday ,and I went into healthy diet before the said holiday so that I would look good ,, yeah but now ,, I feel frumpy and I really needed to loose that extra 5 kilos,,, but hey its holiday ,, I guess I shouldn't worry about it for awhile,, don't think about cleanse colon ,, lemon detox, diet pills , Zumba, gym, booth camp , power walking ,, wheeww,, just typing these words makes me feel exhausted already ...
They say enjoy and be merry ,, Tis the season to be happy ,,, well blow up the diet and go pig out ,, worry about it later ... I just couldn't be bothered yet ,, so just Enjoy it and have Fun everyone...

Need to access

I have things to do before the end of this year ,,, first of all I wanted to go to the our local doctor to get a referral for my boy to go to the pediatrician so I can get the Item 135 for kid's with Autism .
The new items are available to treat children under 13 years of age with autism or any other pervasive developmental disorder, such as Rett's disorder, Asperger's syndrome or childhood disintegrative disorder. Consultant psychiatrists and paediatricians will also be able to refer children to eligible psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists for assistance with diagnosis or contribution to a treatment plan, and early intervention treatment.

This is done here in Australia and can be accessible for kids who have Autism, there are heaps of stuff to help those who have disability ,, just need to seek and learn more about it and how they can help ,,, I dont know how it works in the US ,, I was looking at the ssdi Social Security Disability Insurance and how it works ,, anyway ,, its good that there are ways to help those who are in need ..

So I make sure that my boy can continue his Speech therapy and gain confidence through the said process...

Fun...


Today I have to ring up our local doctor to make an appointment for B1 ,, its just a normal appointment to see the doctor before the year ended... B1 has no troubles going to the doctor ,, he likes having his ears checked by using welch allyn otoscope , check his mouth and listen to his heart .. just the non invasive procedures... kids like that ,, they know it and get used to it and sometimes play doctor at home ,, but when it comes to taking medication ,, having needles injection ,, now way !! but unfortunately ,, I cannot get an appointment ,, it was fully booked and the doctor will be on holidays and will be back on the 17th of January 2011 .. So I have to go to another doctor for an appointment .. ahh such a hassle ...
Anyway,, today the kids are having so much fun dressing up ... Bought them Mr and Mrs Santa costume and a reindeer nose and antler for my car ,, they are so cute and they had a ball ,, dancing and having their photos taken.....

Feeling my age....

Being forty and getting cranky ,, I think that is what I am .. Another milestone and some new maybe some new surprises in life....
Being cranky is no good ,,, but I try my best to avoid things that make me feel that way,,, I should be happy because Im in good health and also my family ,, even my mum who is 78 years she has a High blood pressure but is taking a maintenance medication for it ...
My hubbys grandma who suffers from arthritis needs some maintenance too.. I checked the web www.treatmentsforarthritis.net to find out more how she can manage it ... But that is the aging process ,, bodies tend to fail and show some weakness,, that is why I should always feel happy knowing I am in good health and that is what I am wishing for ...

All he wanted for Christmas.....

Christmas is fast approaching and my My boy loves to watch the DVD Polar Express almost everyday........ It is getting annoying now .. but at least he knows that he has to be good or Santa wont give him Christmas toys ......
He is always telling me that he likes the Optimus Prime toy and Thomas and friends Mystic Island rescue toys and that he wanted to tell Santa about it .... We told him that he is getting just one toy from Santa ,, but he was firm to believe that Santa will give these toys to him,,,,, hmmm I hope so..........

Anyway ,, the Christmas season is fast approaching and no one can stop it,, whether its the Christmas decor, Christmas carols , Christmas sale or ads from everywhere ,, its making me all giddy ,, we are building our house and almost finished and I really wanted to move in there by Christmas ,,,,, ohhh Santa ... can you do that for me ,,, to rush all the workers so we can have our 1st Christmas there ..........

Pretty as.....


Last week my 16 year old had her school's Year 10 Formal ..... She looked radiant with her long gown , perfect hair and subtle make up .. Mummy and Dad was really proud of her,, she carried herself really well ...

But,, to make herself perfect during that night entailed a really fussy preparation... months and months before the formal ,, my girl and friends had already been talking about what to wear , how to have a dramatic arrival and so o and so on ,, 1st of all she searched high and low for a good acne treatment , she would hate going to a formal with all the zits ..... 2nd she had to go to jog / walk everyday ,,, needed that to fit into a decent gown of course ...
finding a good hairdresser and hair stylist ...

The head ache began when she started looking for her dress!!!!!!!!! stressful moment ,, forget to mention the shoes and the clutch!!!! she also gave a me head ache about finding a perfect dress......... but alas!!!!! she did most of the searching ....... and she did really well!!!!!

No happy .....

I badly need a weight loss pills that work .................

I feel so frumpy and unhappy .... :-( I just let myself go ,, Honestly even though I do Zumba once aweek ,, btw,, I really sweat alot during Zumba,,, feeling that I just went to a sauna,, but afterwards ,, fizzy drinks,, high calorie foods ,,,, yeah ,, very bad .......
I am just not pumped up to loose weight and manage my bad eating habit... geezzz,, gonna turn 40 and yuck......... argggggg that is how I feel ,, am I having a mid life crisis?? I think I am ,, I saying I wanna loose weight but not motivated to do to something about it ...

Crisis hotline wait for my call...............

Birthday soon


I am counting the days.... I've got mixed emotions as I am nearly turing big 40!!!!!! I opted not to have a party anymore,,I guess with too much expenses that we are doing at the moment ,, I just feel I don't want to make a big fuss out of it ...so simple dinner with my hubby and kids would make my day on Thursday.
Eldest daughter is asking me what I want for my birthday ,, she is so inundated with so much choices even goggling " birthday gift for women " but I told her she should already know by now what are the things I like .. I just let her decide for herself ...
Love ... Happiness ... Health ..... those are the things I wanted to have forever ....

We wanted to go to USA in few years time ,,, we love the experience of being on an overseas holiday ,, so we really have to save for it and with all the expenses we are doing this year for building our house ,, this coming Christmas Holiday , we might just go stay around our state ,, no big holidays this 2010 , But we will surely look forward to a BIG holiday next time.....

Hmmm,,, my Hubby is acting weird ,,, he just told me to have a dinner with my girlfriends ,, on the weekend before my birthday not on the weekend after my birthday ,, hmmm,, I was thinking maybe he's got something for me on that weekend ,, don't want to ask maybe its a surprise ,, or maybe not ,, I don't want to be disappointed knowing he's done nothing for me......
Anyway ,,,,, I'll just update you guys about it ...

I don't like surprises ,, I wanted to be ready ,, get organized ,, send our invitations ,, by the way ,, I was browsing at some birthday invites on Pear tree greetings ,,but what caught my attention was the huge range of kids invites ,, from Baby announcement , Baptism invitations , birthdays and so on .... OK back to the lady whose feeling a bit old at the moment ........ yeah ,,, I might just take my girlfriends for a dinner and a drink ,,, all girls ,, no kids and hubby in tow ... So have to ring them up and find out what where do they prefer to dine ....

Sky ...


With a warm weather looiming up ,, I cant help but welcome the nice weather with a nice manicure ...

Love love this colour !!!!It the Blue sky that makes me smile ,, like the colou of this mani ,, I made some clouds too....
It brightens my day and its a celebration of a nice Spring day for us....

Poeple had ditched their winter outfit and they are just eager to wear summer clothes ... I still have some few unwanted punds that Ive accumulated and I have to read some phentermine reviews and I guess I haveto do something to look good for the coming season .


Keeping myself awake

Sleep deprived.... that is what I am right now.....
I have to close to my eyes,,,, no I can't!!!! ahhhh,, drifting ...... drifting away to Lala land....
Snap out of it ,, there are things to do ,, emails to read, reviews to do , bills to be paid ,,,, never ending ,,, I can stay all night but staying late gives me those dark circles around my eyes,,, not really attractive.....
Sip my coffee,,, type some words,, I don't want to fall in a trance ...
OK I'm awake even for just a few hours ...

I love to sleep ,,,but I love to stay up late,, does it make sense???? Probably not ,,,
I like doing some work at night but when I'm done I just lie down and off I fall asleep quickly ... and the anticipation of my back hitting the bed is just overwhelming .


Ok back to work............

Sale hunting

My friend and I went to the shops the other day ,, we enjoy shopping together and do Sale hunting ,, and most of the shops are having a mid season SALE ,, who would not like to get a good bargain and snap a good stuff ???
Since we are building a house and we are almost nearing the completion , my mind is already gearing up for getting all the decor, since David Jones is on sale I went to the shop and went straight to the manchester and towel section ,, I am loving the Egyptian cotton towels that were 40 % off ,, loving the feel of a fluffy towels,, so walked around and feeling all the towels and checking the brands and prices,,, because I will be back next week when Im ready to buy them ,,, OK towels checked ,, off I went to the bed lines and my oh my 1000 count bedding ,,, ahhhhh must be a pure heaven to sleep on it .... so checked the item that I like and made a mental notes on them,,,,, so that when I come back I know exactly what I have to get ....

Get Spooky

Ok,,,, its the time of the year to get Spooky...
Although Halloween is not big here in Australia ,, some people still get in the mood and celebrate it,,, with the looming commercialism of all things ,, the shops are well decorated with Halloween stuff,,, from lollies, pumpkin, costumes,, house decor and all sorts ,, people are now buying things ,,, I remember that my suburb would have 2- 3 kids walking around trick or treating,, but now heaps of them are doing it ,, so we have to get those lollies ready every year ...
To join in the fun ,,, I also doing a Halloween stuff my daughter's lunch box ... I am loving the BENTO stuff in blogosphere , I just started dong it ,, last week,,,
Its the last term for my daughters Kindergarten and lately she would come home without eating her boring lunch .. I was meant to do a BENTO for her before she started school but things happened and forgot about that ,,, but then I decided to start it knowing it would encourage her to eat her lunch ...

This is my second week ,,, so I would start from Monday the 25th since its Halloween week ....



Gummy body parts EYES and Mouth
Pumpkin Basket with Blueberries
Cheese stick with apple skin nail
Carrots carved as pumpkin


Just loving them,, and since mt lil girl is really good with trying food it was relieve because I can pack foods for her easily ,, giving her healthy options and hoping that she will maintain eating healthy foods and might grow up healthy conscious to avoid nasty stuff so ther would be no need for diet pills, natural colon cleansing , drastic diets or shakes ...

Why oh Why???

Yes,,, Why oh Why am I not loosing weight?????
This is my dilemma at the moment,,, a very special event will take place in November and here I am pondering why am I not loosing these unwanted fats????

I was reading this article at Kidspot.com.au and checking if Im doing the same thing or I might end doing the fast weight loss solutions .

A must read and I wanted to share to it too...

Skipping breakfast
Running late for work again? Before you bolt out the door on nothing but a cup of coffee, be aware that skipping breakfast can be bad news for weight loss. Chances are, you're going to feel hungry later - and that may be when you have less access to healthy food and are more likely to reach for a doughnut.
Antidote:
Keep something on hand that you can eat on the run, such as fruit, yoghurt or low-fat cereal bars.
Feasting on family favourites
When your kids or spouse have a favourite family meal, it's hard to ban it from your menu list. Family favourites, such as lasagna, are often high in fat and kilojoules.
Antidote:
Serve yourself a smaller serving of the main meal and a large serving of vegetables or salad. It's also a good idea to try to find a lower-fat version of the family favourite.
Social overeating
Eating whatever you wanted at a restaurant was OK in the days when people ate out only a few times a year. But these days we dine out every week, if not every day.
Antidote:
Search the menu for meals cooked using low-fat methods, such as grilling or stir-frying, and ask for sauces and dressings on the side. That way you can control how much you have.
Not counting every bite
A few potato chips while you open the mail. Just a few cookies while you help the kids with their homework. When we snack, we tend to be standing up or have our attention focused on another task. This can lead to thinking the kilojoules "don't count". Unfortunately, they do.
Antidote:
Set ground rules, such as "I don't eat in the car or while I'm watching television." And always, keep track of everything you eat during the day. Knowing you'll have to write it down will make you think twice about having that one bite.
Expecting too much too soon
After several months of dedication you're down in the dumps - you feel the scale has barely moved. Expecting too much weight loss too soon is an extremely common blunder. A healthy rate of weight loss is up to one kilo a week. But many people aim for more than that, then feel like failures and give up when they don't reach that unrealistically high goal.
Antidote:
Make "slow and steady" your mantra. If you really don't believe that one kilo lost amounts to much, lift one kilo of butter the next time you're at the supermarket. You'll realise how well you're doing.

I want him to stop

I hate and I really do !!!!!


Everyday as my hubby lit up a cigarette I just cringe seeing him puff those nasty sticks...
He was able to quit when we got married ,, but after 5 years of quitting , his mum was sick and passed away and that made him took up smoking again ,,, hayyyy....
I always remind him of the bad effects of smoking and telling him to think of the kids ,, but his will power is not strong enough to quit .. I even saw an ads about a methol flavor electronic cigarette cheap and I guess I don't want him to try that one either , I just want him to STOP!!!!!

Here in Oz there are heaps of ads about quiting smoking , they even have a warning sign on the packet and some nasty pics of thing that will happen when you smoke..
OK this is so off putting for me but this is how the ads go....

Failure

ahhhh ,, I am failing ,,, yes failing in keeping myself fit....
A couple of weeks ago I was raving that I was back on my Wii Fit doing Yoga, exercise and dancing ,, but the past few days the hype just worn out..

Sadly I was sneaking some chocolates in my shopping cart !!! bad bad bad ,, It was not on my LIST!!! errrr failure ,, yeah totally because I also bought a cheesecake to be consumed right after dinner !!! of all things CHEESEcake which is high in calories and fats...

I guess no matter how much I read about fat burner reviews , watch ads about some machines that promises to loose those love handles and those diet pills that guarantees to loose weight .. I am still feeling sluggish, lazy and don't want to do anything about my expanding waist line...
I have to put my head on it and start acting fast 40 40 40 40 ahhhhhh that's the next event for me and I need to look good ASAP!!!!!!!

Need a night out

My hubby and I love to go on a date , but since we have small kids ,, we really have to organise it properly and make sure that my hubby's Auntie is available during that time... My hubby's parents passed away already and my mom is in the Philippines so its hard for us to go on a date by ourselves ,, it needs a lot of early notification..
We are very fussy with leaving our kids to anyone.. We are not comfortable leaving the kids to a nanny or babysitter ,, we 're just too paranoid,, we might even set up a nanny cam , if we do leave the kids to someone that is not related to us .. But I know that everyone has the same apprehension,, we cannot just trust people to look after our precious ones . With the looming in or area we also need to be extra careful and protect not only my kids but also our properties,, that is why we have a Home security system installed .
Anyway, our next night out will be in February 2011 to watch Michael Buble's concert in Sydney ,, we are such a fan and we saw his concert 3 years ago and we just want to see his Crazy Love concert ,, heard about good reviews about it ,, so yeah that would be our Valentines day date . Booked that ticket 5 months ago ,,, I mean that would be 9 months in advance !!!!
I always say to my friend who always go on a ate every Friday with hubby because they can simply drop off their kids to her in laws,,that they are lucky to have someone to look after their kids and for them to enjoy their night out ...
How about you ??? Do you go out often????

The show started


Last week was the opening night for the High School Musical on stage here in our area where my eldest daughter is playing the lead role of Gabriella, it was a nerve wrecking night knowing that it is her first time to join a stage musicale ,, the event was jam packed and the anticipation, stress and excitement were felt during that night ,, We were all relieved to see her go through here lines and songs with ease .
It was a successful night and I am proud of my chookies girl!!!!!!

It was a long process from the audition through the rehearsal ,, 2 times a week for 5 months from 7pm to 10 pm,,, and with all the effort and the hard work , it has paved off.. all the late nights and stress my daughter suffered from acne ,, and we had to act fast and found a solution,, went through all the best acne treatments and found the best one to control her break outs ,, don't want her to be acne faced while shes doing the show..

Anyway,, my hubby and I decided not to watch any of her rehearsals ,, we just want surprises during the show and boy we were surprised with my girl ,, knowing that she have no formal singing training,, we know that she is a dancer and an actress but not a singer ,, so it good to know that she can do them all ...

So she still have 3 more shows to go and then the hard work is done ....

Update on the building

An update on our house.....

yeahhh,, they already started doing the roofing this week ,,, construction is moving again and even in a steady slow phase ,, I am getting excited about it ,, seeing things being done ,,, my dearest handy hubby has finished putting up all the cladding in the house ,, with a help of a carpenter friend ,, it took them 3 days to finished it and I love the way it looks ...
Tuesday when they started doing the veranda , actually doing the decking all around the house and for sure it will take weeks for it to finished ...
The plumber was there too to dig up some stuff and put some pipes ,, ahhh lots of happening these week and hopefully things would move quickly ...



All I do is check online finding some designs and inspirations ,, I'll start with the kitchen first ,, tile splashback or glass???? my 1st dilemma ,, what colour scheme in the kitchen , I was also looking at Moen kitchen faucets and finding some nice style that I like ,, so what ever I just file all the ideas / pictures I have so my hubby and I can have a look, discuss and decide which one is better ...
So yeah ,, juts keeping my fingers crossed that we can be finished by December ,,, wanted to spend first Christmas there ....



Back on my Wii Fit again

This week I am back to my Wii Fit , a 30 minute exercise on the Wii fit is good enough for me at the moment ,, I'm still getting hang of it again after having a sedentary lifestyle for a year, I might not be the buff, athletic, exercise loving person but I am trying my best to get fit ,, I found a motivation again to do exercises, right now I still have a muscle pain from doing all the lounges and toning , I'm just doing it slowly ,, then when I'm all pumped up ,, I might go for a walk ,, since the weather is warming up here in Oz ,, I've been seeing those mbt shoes in the shops ,, the shoes with a curved sole that is designed for walking ,, hmm I might look at it and try it on and see if it 's comfortable ...
But for now ,, I'll enjoy my Wii Fit ,, since it is school holiday and the Zumba session is not on for 2 weeks..... anyway,, my kids love seeing me stretched my muscles and they also hang around and do so exercising .... good for me ,, good for them.....

Time to loose

Ahhh,,, lovely warm day ,, its been a week now and and weather is perfectly warming up ,, Time to pack away bulky winter jackets and out with the Spring clothes .. Seeing the nice clothes at the shop makes me get motivated to loose my jelly belly ... yup ,, a wobbly one too.. I am doing Zumba once a week and I love it,, 1 hour of intense dancing and I was really sweating it out,, but once a week is not enough ,, how about phentermine no prescription ??? or just stick to a healthy diet,,, I was able to make loose weight last year before I went overseas,, I was motivated at that time,,,but this time,, I have to get going and start exercising again..... I must I must .....
OK , next week I will hop on my Wii fit and will do toning exercises again,, I'll be home for 2 weeks because I will be a school holiday ,, So wish me luck....

Bad day

It s been 5 months now since my hubby's car is in the mechanic shop to be fixed,, hubby's car is such a head ache.. Hubby is so angry about this car that whenever I mention his car he would have a head ache... So from time to time I have to drop off hubby to work , and one unfortunate morning ,, hubby was driving my car and wasn't aware that it was a school zone ,,, went past the school and lo and behold a policeman,an with using those stuff radar detectors , then stopped us,, hubby was surprised and even ask "ME???""" yes you !!!! the police blurted out .. and I told hubby that it is a school area ,, that why ........





A wopping 270 dollar fine and a demrit point for hubby ,, what a day it was.!!!!

Face


Yessss... my big forty is coming up..... I'm not quite sure how to react ... should I be Happy or should I be worried????? the peak of my life .. is it really???? I really juts don't know what to expect ....


Here I am hiding behind a mask ... am I hiding something nasty .. hmmmm,,, wrinkles?? sun spots, pimples, deformity on and on and on ..
I do need an anti wrinkle serum that will really work , a facial sun cream that will block the nasty UV rays ...

I know .. I know.. I heard about loving yourself saying..... I do love ME and that is why I do want to look good not for myself but for my loved ones...


Ok the mask can go and I can reveal the face of 40 (soon......)

Stressed out

My eldest daughter is on a High School Musical on stage and playing the role of Gabriella in our local district of MacArthur , the opening night is on Friday and nerves are getting high,,, they all been working hard for almost 5 months now and I juts hope that everything will turn up well..

My daughter attends the rehearsal 2 times a week from 7-10 pm and her immune system is getting low,, with lack of sleep ,, school , work she is having a flue like symptoms,, even the best vitamin c serum wont help , she is all stressed out and with the show commencing soon ,, she s feeling all the pressure , shes got 10 shows all up and too much on hr shoulders...
I just hope that she can cope up with it and will never crumble with all the circumstances...

Warm Spring

Ahh this is what I call a gorgeous day ..... Spring with a temperature of 22C ahhhh nice and warm,, I can wear shirts already and feeling the hot already ,, so for sure it is going to be a scorching summer this year...

I reckon beach bums are out already and soaking the heat at the beaches around Oz ,, those buff men and women who are ready to display their physique are itching to go out,,, hmm could they be taking hgh cream ?? anyway, all I can say is good on them,, if they have have it flaunt it!!!! I know I can never be too courageous to show off my body ,, I guess I have too much hang ups with it ,, trying my best to be fit and struggling to eat well.
Anyway ,, I will surely love summer .. I always love summer !!! Sun, Fun, BBQ, Christmas ,Holiday ... Best time of the year for us here in Oz...

Dressing up

September is moving fast and I am already seeing some spooky stuff displayed at the shops,,, Yess,, Halloween is fast approaching , my kids love to dress up during this event above all they are so excited to go on trick or treating and getting all the lollies and stuff ,, seeing their faces light up as they receive the treats are worth seeing ...
Well this year we are going to our old neighbourhood and walk around the are and do trick or treating .
I was looking at these adorable costumes for kids and I really like these cute outfits for toddlers ahhh they are so cute .. just wannna share it with you guys and for sure you will also fall in love with them..












Ahh but for sure my lil kiddos will love these characters as their halloween costumes ,, not spooky but the usual Disney Princess for my lil possum and Iron Man for my lil man



I was browsing at some adult costumes too and I 've seen some funny and weird halloween costumes ,,, just don't know if I 'll be brave enough to wear them ,, I would just be a chaperon for the kids and for sure I'm the one who is going to hold all the pumpkin bags for them .. Yupp,, it will be a good fun but I will surely hide some of the candies and sweets because they will just eat them in one go ,, so have to save some for later ,,, ahhh is it me getting excited here ????

1st excursion

It was my lil girls 1st school excursion today ,, She was so excited this morning and even woke up without any whinging and procrastination... She is too hard to wake up in the morning , but today it was different story ,, ahhh I hope that its like this every morning ,, stress free morning....
Took a shower ,, breakfast and even I was rushing I still squeezed time to do her hair ,, just an easy double twist on top ,, I love doing her hair every morning ,, always tied up or juts tidy ,, never leave them hanging down,, they have a note from school about kids who have nits or lice , that is why I always check her hair and keep them up everyday ,, dont want those nasties to end up on her beautiful long hair .... Anyway,, I also have my boy up early and got ready...
Off we went to school at 8 am, all the Kindergarten kids were gathered up and off they wen t to the big bus,,, my brave lil girl just waved bye bye and was happy siting there.. I was waving non stop to her and blowing kisses ,, its her 1st time to be away that far from us and it was a concern feeling me ,, but I know that everything will be fine ,, it must be the separation anxiety on my part ... ahhh my lil girl is growing up ...
So at home ,, I kept my mind occupied by doing stuff online,, paying bills by net baking ,, filing papers , reading some brochures on life insurance quotes , purging some stuff in my home office and checking my emails ,,, I was busy doing stuff when I looked at the time ,,, whooaa it was quick almost 3 pm and I needed to go to school and pick the kids up , thinking the bus must be there already ,, went o school and picked up my boy and waited for half an hour for the bus to arrive...Alas,,,, the kids are back and with full of stories and excitement , the tired lil girl settled and had a quick snack and a quiet night .....

Getting busy with nails





I am into nail art at moment,, I started 6 months ago with just 2 nail polishes ,, but as my obsession grew, I started to add few more and then I think I lost count of all my nail polishes, I love doing it and as I practice some intricate designs ,, my hubby said that I can do business with that ,, and a light bulb moment came out ,, I am still in the process of researching and practicing it before I start a small business ,, so no details about it yet .. aside from that small business I was also thought about finding jobs in health care , all I need is to go back to school lean and train , but it 's hard to find something that will be suitable for me,, I still have to look after my kids and if I can find a time that will be around school time ,, it would be really good ,, but for now ,, I have to concentrate on looking after the kids and my hubby,, so I guess going back to the work force is not yet a priority ,, work at home is the best option for me at the moment ..

Well,, just want to share some nail stuff that I've done so far ...

Note: I am not a professional nail artist nor I did not study nail art just from going to other nail artist's blog sites and channel ; where I got my inspirations and ideas...

I want to move out

ahhhh its more than 16 months that we are renting this house,,, we are building our house and it is such a slow process..
Cant wait to move out of this place,,,, the rent is too high but the place is too small for the family of 5,,, kids are getting bored,, they need a big backyard to run around and play most of the time .. all they ave to do is play Plasystation or watch in our big Samsung tv ,, they needed something to do ,, now that its is Springtime ,, its the best time to be out side and play, kick ball or just stay outside,, too much technology inside and they needed to release their energies ..
Anyway,, I am hoping that the carpenters will be there to finish the frame for the house within this week,, It was raining the last week that 's why the building halted...
I'm hoping for a nice weather this week!!!!

Snow Fun

Aaahhh Spring Time here in Australia and as the weather warms up people are flocking to the shops to buy Spring items and outfit... But in the snowy mountain,,, the snow is still falling and people are still enjoying the snow.. we did not go to the snow this year,, we are concentrating on building our house ,, but it would be nice to be back to the snow next time because the last time we went there,,, the kids enjoyed it ,,, we all took a skiing lessons and at the end of the day I was able to ski , although I was just on a small slope ,,, kids also enjoyed the snow tubes , snow sled and making a snow man . But I guess we have to plan the trip next time to save money and find the best deal for the whole family ...
There are lots of things we wanted to do and explore but our main priority at the moment is building and hoping that we can finish soon , so that we can enjoy the place.

Flowers and butterflies and warm sunshine....

I love Christmas ,,, this year hopefully we can spend Christmas in our new house,, and I have to plan things already ,,, let me start with some Christmas party invitations ... I saw some funky invitations online and I'm like the layout of these invites...

Online shopping

I went to the shops this morning,,, gezzz,, itsbeen along time since I went out shopping,, not grocery but mall shopping ,, the reason why is that I am into online shopping ,,, I like doing online shopping because I can browse around and find things that I needed.. Very convenient since I am in the comfort of my own home ,, sipping coffee and eating cookies while doing my shopping,,, How good is that .
I also found a site that offers a good online coupon on eBillme.com , not only that; I also went to the site and found about what they call Ebill, since I am very particular about interenet safety , I wanted to deal in a safe and secure transaction...
Finding an online shop that wont ask for :

social security number
bank account number
credit card number
debit card number
date of birth

is really good,, because it will avoid Hackers to steal my identity... I can just pay it through my bank,, my own net banking or over walk in locations....
I think this is the go for safe online shopping .... I hope that most of the shopping will be like this one ...

Too much chatting

As I mentioned before that my eldest daughter who just turned 16 is playing as Garbriella in Highschool Musical here in our local theatre group. She had been busy rehearsing 2 times a week,, studying , and also works 2 times week,, plus home works,, FACE BOOK, guitar , dancing , friends and most of all constant chatting on phone with her friends,, sometimes it getting too much!!! since we have a cordless phone,, she always bring it in her room,, and mind yo ,, we have 3 cordless phones and all of them are in her room!!! ,, she always get into trouble by bringing them all in here room and just leave there without putting back into its own base to charge!! I need to read some cordless phone reviews because my phone needed to be upgraded.
Sometimes, hubby would say its better if we have the old handset phone so that she cannot bring them in er room,, and she can stay there on the phone for long hours ,,, ahh,, the pain of having a teenager ...that is only the phone ,, but how about computer and facebook???? this would be a whinging blog.... errrr... I need patience,, serenity now!!!

Slowly building

I have been very busy the last few days,, since we are building and the tradesmen are already setting up the frame for our house ,, my hubby and I are getting excited with the development, it is slowly moving...
The tradesmen needed to confirm some measurement from us , so Hubby and I are making sure we are available whenever we are needed on site .
With all the excitement ,, we are getting in the mood to shop for things,,, the 1st dilemma is the toilet,,, thousands of tile to choose from!!!! Toilet suites and all the accessories are also a pain .. We found a perfect toilet suite ,, but not yet available .. arrggg.... we have to make a decision soon because the plumber will need it ...

Ahh,, cant wait to decorate the house!!!! I saw some design furniture at the shops the other day and Ive got my eye on it and will visit it again next time...

Sick hubby

Its been such a hectic for us.. I was doing an errands fr hubby all throughout this week..WE are in the process of building our house and being an owner builder, it is so much stressful ,, more to my hubby because he is the one organizing everything , organizing tradesmen is the hardest part, some are not reliable and wasting too much of our precious time... The time is ticking and we need to put a roof in the house, oopppss we don't have a frame yet .... so it is still a long way ..
This is giving my hubby so much stress, he had a flu last week and this time he is suffering from a severe tooth ache ,, I mean really bad,, he has not eaten solid meal for almost two days ,, its his wisdom tooth that is making his life miserable at the moment .. With the money that is eating up medical expenses,, I should have taken Blue Cross NC plans ,, we don't have medical plan and every time we go to the doctor or dentist , its too much of an expense,, anyway,, I have to look through it and decide about it...
Weekend and still hubby is still working at the site,, poor hubby,, I helped him the last two days but there are tons of stuff to do ... Its gonna be a slow process and more headaches to come!!!!

I know that we are still far away from finishing our new house ,, but I am so excited already..
Th other day my hubby and I went to the shops to look around for a really nice oven.... There are really nice stuff around the shops and we are still in the process of looking around and getting some prices for comparison .
Aside from that I went pass in a bed linen section and my oh my I am loving these matouk bed linens ,, they are so inviting and really classy ,,


so I really have to consider on buying a really nice linen... Then the bathroom section and with all the tapware and vanities taht are on special at the moment ,, I cant help but choose the expensive one... I guess I have an expensive taste especially with the home wares. So, the only thing that I can do at the moment is to list down the thigs tahat I like and the prices next to it and then we can work on our budget ...

Busy

Ahh,, the weather here in Oz is terrible the last few days,,, Cold wind and raining ,, not a good weather for building a house... Yeah,, we are slowly building our dream house and with the weather like this ,, it is just difficult to do the job... The frame was supposed to be up today but with the constant rain it was postponed till next Thursday , and the time is ticking and the expenses is too much to bear..
My hubby is all stressed put,, he is always at the job site ,, where he should also should in his work ,, there are plenty of job to do and finalising some cad drawings
too for woodworking in his work,, good thing ,, we own the business, or else he should have been fired by now...
Anyway,, we are hoping that the weather will ease a little bit and will give us SUNSHINE!!!!

Definitely worth looking at this site and check out all the best brands on sale .

But today it is rainy and the cold breeze is freezing, I cant help but dream of a sunny day where the daylight is long and kids can enjoy a long warm day...

Face routine

As the years pass and I'm getting older it was then that I'm getting extra careful with myself,, the years of neglect on my face had a big toll on my face,,, with the extreme heat here in Oz ,, my face is almost covered with dark spots or freckles , my skin is very sensitive and if I could only turn back the clock I would be very vigilant with sun protection, although I have freckles I am delighted that there are only few lines on my face... ahhh but I guess it wont be long before the dreaded crows feet, laugh line and wrinkles will creep on my face ,, I know there are good wrinkle creams on the market , but I am extra careful with it after having suffered a bad reaction to a certain wrinkle cream,, I develop hives and a nasty allergic reaction .
I am using a certain brand that I trusted for so many years and I guess Ill have to stick with it for a very longtime , since I find it effective and I have no adverse reaction to it .

What to do

School Holiday here in Oz and I am busy finding activities for the kids...
Going to the Movies ... Checked!!!
Going to the Library .... checked!
Going shopping ....... checked!!!
Staying at home, watching videos ... checked!!
Playing games ...... Checked!!!!
Doing crafts.... checked!!!
Taking to the show at the malls... checked!!!

Ahh, these are the things that we've one so far,,, the only thing that is missing is my weekly fitness routine,, my ZUMBA classes,, I miss doing this . I love doing the classes because it is intense and I am they say that its good for burning belly fat ...
But next week the kids are back to school so definitely I'll be back to my routine...

School Holiday

Its school holiday here in Oz again eldest daughter have 3 weeks off and the 2 young kiddos have 2 weeks off..
Started the week for them by taking them to watch a movie Marmaduke , it was a good movie and the kids were entertained .
Then, took the kids to watch a show at our local shops ,, a Super hero show which made my boy very excited ,, IronMan, Spiderman and Hulk were there and boy oh boy ,, my B1 was so delighted to see them,, he is such a Fan !!!!

I've been taking the kids to the shop almost everyday , and I try to avoid it today because we only end up buying take away food,, well no other than McDonalds and KFC,,, ahhhh and that broke my healthy diet ,,, I also missed my Zumba this week , since I have the kids with me,, But I'm not thinking of natural weight loss pills ,, but I am thinking of hopping on my Wii Fit again .. Needed a bit of exercise ,, I know its good idea to bring the kids to the park but the weather is cold and miserable with occasional rain so needed to do something indoors..

Anyway, I like spending time with the kids even when were just at home chillin out .... They are lovely kids and easy to be with ....

Do nothing

It's been cold the past few days in our place,, we had a -3 C the other day,, woke up, peeked outside and saw a blanket of frost, my kids were excited and shouting "snow snow" but it was just frost but looks like a snowy field...

Its been cold the whole day and what a best time to just laze around in my pyjamas , snuggle up and watch tv all day and do nothing!!! yeah,, that would be ideal on a cold day , no worries about housework, exercise , best diet pills , gym, zumba, walking ,, just do absolutely nothing ,, but hey ,, have to move on,, pick the kids up ,, drive them around for their t of school activities,, so I guess ,, I'll just dream of lazing around because I cant just sit around ... Maybe next time.....

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Update

Sorry for the lack of updates ,,, just been busy for the last few weeks... Organized hubby's surprise 40th birthday party and I was so paranoid prior to the occasion , I don't want to spoil the surprise that is why I was too pre occupied with things and it paved off ,, it was a huge success and i was so happy to see my hubby enjoying his birthday.
Now that the celebration is finished , I would like to focus n the coming school holiday next week,, yeah its the time of the year , when my kids stay at home and I am going to be busy making my kids holiday enjoyable and fun for all of us...

My lil missy is starting to read now,, so a big tick to the list ,, GO to the Library , I was also looking at the neighbourhood where people sell used books at a very low price, I think its good to look around and get books for her..
My boy who is onto PlayStation games would be happy to know that there is a huge sale coming and he would surely ask for an Iron Man games .
My eldest daughter will be working this school holiday so that would be fine,, but for sure I would be busy dropping and picking her up ...

So I have to start searching for indoor or outdoor activities that are available around my area,, don't want the kids to just stay at home and sit around and whinge....

Getting in touch with people

I was busy doing stuff on Facebook and as my circle of friends is getting bigger , I cant help bit thank the power of Facebook for getting people connected with each other... imagine seeing old pals and mates from way before and get updated with the latest happenings is fun,,
I was speaking to an old friend who I found out that she just migrated here in Australia , although she is just starting her life here and getting settled , she in the process of finding a job through employment screening scheme , and I hope all the best for her,, knowing that she had a good job in the Philippines before she left ...

So just a constant chatting and exchanging of messages first since she is still busy organizing some stuff...

Aside from that an old High school classmate is going over on a work related agenda,, but managed to have a weekend off so we can meet up and I can show here around the area of Sydney ..
It would be exciting to catch up with her and exchange stories...

So thats what FB is all about ,, keeping in touch with people.....
