She is OK now..

finally…Anevay’s fever is gone. After having a 39 degree fever yesterday she is fine now. She is sick from Sunday until yesterday. She has colds, cough and fever and this has drive me nuts really. You see she has fever last week and now another one. We went to her pedia last Tuesday and she said its only viral. I’m lucky though because she is active but the problem is she cannot sleep well. For almost four nights I haven’t gotten enough sleep. That’s the reason of me not blogging and blog hopping. Promise, once I got time I will visit your blog guys!

Adjusting as she grows up

I realized when we went to Cebu that Anevay have not sleep well. And then when she was hospitalized also she was having a hard time sleeping not only because she is sick but also the bed is too small for her and me.

She was used to sleeping on a two mattress laid on the floor. One is a queen size the other is a double size. So the space is not a problem when she sleep. Coming to this observation, I started to train her to sleep in  a much smaller mattress. No more double size mattress for us. And now I am looking for adjustable beds for us.
I wanted her to get used to going up and down the bed. I’m trying new things as she grows up.

One of the wisest thing to do when you go for a vacation is to scout for the cheapest package available. Look for cheap airline tickets and then source out for low price accomodations. This way you still have budget to buy for souvenier items. That’s what I did when we went to Cebu and Bohol.

Now, if you plan to go to Vegas you can do the scouting through the internet. Its nice too see cheap hotel Las Vegas. It’s convenience in your fingertips.

PLDT DSL is having a problem. My internet connection is intermittent. I plan to visit as much participant of Friday Feast as I can but unfortunately, my DSL is not cooperating.

I plan to sleep early tonight until I remember that I have not yet printed the picture that Anevay needed tomorrow as an assignment in Tumbletots. And my HP printer is giving me a headache (HP kasi eh! LOL! just kidding).

So instead of printing just a picture of the princess I look into my files and ended up using one of the quick pages of the Shabby Princess Ultimate Baby Album.

How many times per day do you usually laugh?

I laugh a lot. With Anevay around my days are full of laughter. Not to mention having a husband who never fails to make me laugh even though we are miles apart.  

What do your sunglasses look like?

One is brown with small frame and the other one is black with a medium frame. Both have high UV protection. Which is a must for me to prevent LUPUS flare. 

You win a free trip to anywhere on your continent, but you have to travel by train. Where do you go?



and yes I am biased because I am her mother. Aren’t all mothers biased ? ;)

But I tell you this. I avoid branding my daughter smart or something that might pressure her in the future that she needed to excel to prove something to us her parents.

I’ll be honest. I do not like hearing comments like ‘Of course she is smart, her parents are’. Pertaining to Anevay because I do not want her to grow up thinking she need to be intelligent or to be a honor student or scholar because she needed to be like Mommy or Daddy.

It's Thursday!

oh man. i just realized that my last post was Monday. Where have I been ? Well, just around. You might have seen traces of me in your blogs ;) but i do not have the drive to write a decent post this days. Entirely not true. I’ll rephrase it. I do not have the drive to write a post in this blog.

You see this week while contemplating on my TO DO list (which until now are ALL TO DOs…hahaha)..i felt the urge to visit my two neglected blogs. And alas! What did I saw? both blogs have PR1. How could this be ? I don’t know. Or maybe I know. Something I just don’t want to talk about. Not in the mood, maybe on the coming days or so.

Manic Monday #4

If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be?

Wyoming ? I just like the spelling and the pronounciation. It seems unique.

Where do you go for advice?

Everysince I met my husband and become friend with him until now whenever I needed some views on things that are unclear to me I go to him to asked his advice.

What is the sickest you’ve ever been?

What Am I grateful for

Got this tag from Mhay eons ago but it was only now that I am doing it…

I am thankful for …

  • my everyday existence, because as days goes by I can show my husband, my daughter and the people around me how much i love and treasure them. Everyday gives me a second chance to make my life better
  • my life..although it has its own challenges, as I look back I feel the love of God in me. I have lost my parents at the age of 15, 12 days apart due to sickness and then at the age of 23 I was diagnosed with LUPUS. Through it all, i can see my life is a MIRACLE unfolding everyday
