One of the things that I am scared being a car driver and owner is when I’ll have a breakdown. I don’t have any knowledge about mechanics and whenever that would happen though I know the insurance company covers this, I am just not sure whether I’ll panic or not. Back home, whenever people have breakdown, they got no choice but maybe look for others to help. Or simply leave their car and just come back when the help is ready.
The good thing with having the car comprehensively covered is the benefit that it gives. Well, there are options if the resource for this type of insurance isn’t enough. Independent companies offer the cheaper alternative just mainly for breakdown rescue. Take for example the services that Good Sam at www.goodsamers.com with a 24 hours service with no hidden charges. You may want to explore more of their services by visiting their website.
I’m not the only one. We are many. What’s with Facebook? Reconnecting and making friends! It’s not something that is only for fun, passing time but also making good relationship with people you once knew. I couldn’t just stop thinking of my colleague when I was working in an insurance company. That shouldn’t just be forgotten. It was just for a short time,but it made good memories. To tell you, I’ve never stayed in a company for a year. My mother calls me “red-butted fly”. I kept switching from one company to the other. It’s just luck,honestly.I know my type isn’t someone whom the company should be considered.
Well,thank you Facebook. I have seen a few tonight. I reconnected even with a guy that I found very humble. And he’s someone who has characteristics that I want in a guy.I knew I was too ambitious to be his girl but I really found him perfect!When he learned that I was getting married, he was like ‘ha,that quick?’.I was 21 and maybe he thought I was that young,not yet ready for such BIG commitment. It’s passed 2Am and I am still on Facebook. Dear husband told me to have rest, I already closed Facebook many times. BUt, each time I think of it, I will reopen it and start browsing again. This is not addiction, I know I will be satiated, just like many other things.
Like many others, I would really like to have a mini gym at home. That is because I am too lazy to go out and be physically active, at least 30 minutes a day. My reasons are lame, I shouldn’t blame anything as hindrances. I can have a walk under a cold weather. My body releases heat while walking so I shouldn’t say, ‘the weather is cold, I cannot go out’. Also, kids aren’t the reason hence, I can always take them out with me. Laziness is something incurable. Prove me wrong. I always like just be at home. There are things that needed to be prepared before we can step a foot out.
However, the desire to get gym equipments is not what my husband could afford. He got me gym ball and abs trimmer. That isn’t enough as I always talk about getting me a treadmill or elliptical.Huh? I am not even using what I have here. If I really want to do exercise, I could just improvised. We got bikes that I could put a stand on and keep pedalling. Husband sometimes says, ‘I am insatiable’.
One of the things that makes me hate wearing thick jackets here is my being dyspnoeic. Not really a serious medical case but I just feel like choking. I cannot afford not to wear one when outside because of the freezing cold weather. Sometimes when the temperature is too hot, I start to feel the same. How on earth I feel this way? The worst case is when I feel like throwing up with a bit of headache. I will only feel relieve either by taking a short nap or ‘throwing’. I hate taking drugs. There are occasions that I can handle it. The last time I remember that I was unable to control it was when we were in the city. I feel like laughing when I remember it now.
Hubby was horrified when I called him. I wanted him to wait for us at the bus stop because I don’t feel like walking again, pushing the buggy. Lucky enough, he was there before the bus came. I was so happy seeing him. It scared me a lot. I was worried that if I passed out, who will take care of my girl? Right after I got off the bus, hubby assisted me and thought of calling an ambulance. I knew I’ll be fine once home, so I told him not to. An ambulance call costs a lot so we didn’t bother.
Well, from that case, I thought I have migraine. I was just so afraid. I know migraine could be treated by any medicines for migraine headache relief but it could still reoccur. At least I know what to do once the sign shows up. I just need some rest and be stress free.
Can you tell what happens up to this tree? I was wondering at first, could it be a bird’s nest? It would not come as as surprised to me it was a bit smaller than that. Besides, birds couldn’t carry a tree branch and put them in that state. I also thought that they could be debris from the top and were caught up in the middle. Can you guess?
You know,it is sometimes good to take a camera with you once you decided to go out. Anything is there that is worth a snap. It is just the start of Spring season. That tree might look dead but not really. In fact, it is starting to show leaves, ready for summer. Flowers are as well in the bloom. I couldn’t stop admiring tulips that just grow anywhere here.It reminds me how wonderful this world is.
Most of us have problems with keeping up our skin. We might have had bad days because of dry and flaky skin that disappears when moisturisers or lotions are applied. However, scars, acne and some sort of skin problems are hard to deal with. Acne is the hardest, in my opinion. We might wonder at times why on earth we get acne, though we did all those potions just not to get rid of them. Do you really believe that a facial scrub that will help eliminate them (according to the label) actually works? Or products like acne cleanser that is particularly focus on this problem?
Looking back on my photos 5 years ago, I couldn’t believe that I am completely mature. My face was acne free then. It could have been stress that triggered it or the different environment that I am in now. I also noticed some changes that I consider signs of ageing. I actually couldn’t believe that some people think that I am still very young. A friend even addressed me as “baby”. I talked to a 53 year old lady in the supermarket the other day. It was just out of our boredom that we discussed about bodily changes. She looks young at 53, by the way. It made me more conscious now, will I still look younger at same age as she is?
Being a mother to be is the most exciting thing I have ever experienced. When I was pregnant with my first child, I was ecstatic. The first to know the pregnancy were my friends. I couldn’t remember shouting it loud to my parents the time I told them I was pregnant. There isn’t such thrill when my mother was as well expecting her ninth child. Also, my brothers were expecting theirs too, I was the last. However, what was exciting was the preparation that husband and I did. The joy as expecting parents was enormous. Mind you, we started searching for baby products months before the baby was due. Before the baby arrived, the cot, jumper and pushchair were all set up. Anything relating to welcoming our baby was done ahead of time. What was left was for me to get myself prepared. Would have thought of going home anyway, just for family support and assistance after I gave birth. The thing that I was alone during those days wasn’t easy. Hubby was working as soon as I came home from the hospital. We didn’t expect the baby to arrive 17 days earlier, so the approved 2 weeks holiday was a bit far.
Anyway, right after I gave birth, lots of friends visited. It is true that people do birth announcements in different sort. We did ours by calling the minister of the church was we worship and it was him who broadcast it to all members. I called my parents and friends. But the thing that surprised us was the visit from people we didn’t know that time. I felt loved that time. I thought being away from my family would isolate me. We gained lots of friends from the day we became parents.
I had a chat with a friend in UK the other night. We went to a care giving school together but she is now working as a care assistant. It felt great to be in touched with her once again. We talked about life being in a different country with whole lots of difference. We talk about how our life changed since the last time we met. I like the idea of her working but I didn‘t know that she prefers getting a family most. I know motherhood is incomparable. However, it would have been a different story if I get a job first before committing. With me working and maybe with stability in most things, I won’t have to sacrifice some of my time just because I am still thinking of going back to school or maybe get a full time job.
It is hard looking for a job especially when this country has a big percentage of unemployment. And also, work permit is very hard to get. If given a chance, maybe I will try looking for an opportunity abroad. It will not be difficult as most jobs are listed online, like the city of philadelphia jobs. I do not have any experience working abroad, but I know I can handle any job that suits my qualification. As my friend said, she applies what we were taught back in school in her current job. Also, if I failed to get a job as a carer, I know am capable of taking care of kids. Just hoping it won’t be long. However, I am still focusing raising my family. I know my mind will still change. I might get a job here which is better for everyone.
We have been in our thick jackets all autumn-winter long. We couldn’t imagine warm weather would come for we were stuck in a very different state,hence it snowed that put us to a halt. I wouldn’t have thought that the sandals and a few dresses that I brought from the Philippines would be used.
Here I am using them at the moment. The girl is as well enjoying hers.We went out showcasing our made in the Philippines outfit.I am glad nobody’s around the lawn harhar. Anyway,I planned to collect our girl’s summer clothes from her Ninang’s place. Sure it will be lots. Shiela is not even finished wearing the hand me downs from her little girl. The girl also got a few summer sandals,also from PI. I don’t know when I gonna pick them but I will ask hubby to drop by there any time.
Life is priceless. It a gift from God, therefore we must take extreme care of it. We may not able to do everything just to be safe always, disease free and all. And we are not guaranteed to be everlasting. There are loads of incidents happen where life is cut off short. That is why I am very scared whenever we’re on the road for many life are wasted on the roadside than indoors. But we won’t have life if we don’t come out and enjoy the beauty outside. Besides, even indoors also have risks. Meaning we don’t know when and where accidents might happen.
I am learning to drive. Well, learning doesn’t stop in one phase, as we are learning in our lifetime. I may not drive today or tomorrow but in the future I will. That has put me to wonder whether it will be possible or not. Will I be safe? It wasn’t long when my husband and I discussed about going for insurance, term life insurance, that is. It is most affordable at this stage, we’re still building up and hopefully we’ll be stable in the nearest future, both financially & socially. We checked term life insurance prices online. But we haven’t finalized about it yet. With loads of necessary expenses that needed to be done everyday, I am sure it would be the last resort.
