They are also supporting environmental charities like the Oceana and Healthy Child Healthy World. They also have a green learning center which has top information from sources like the EPA and US Dept. of Energy. They also have many shopping departments which you should check out before shopping as they can have what they call less impact on our planet - such as their eco furniture, solar power products, home improvement, home decor, eco garden, outdoor living, energy saving appliances for your home, air, lighting, cleaning, gadgets, water conservation, baby, beddings, and accessories such as hand bags. One thing more is that you should try to check on their Green Musings blog shared by their staff and community where there are green stories that you can read and some photos to check out for.

You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what you are doing and you are always in control of your life. Others may not see things as you do, but that doesn't mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember, your happy spirit may hurt you or others.
You are fun, you are very cool and popular. You always know what's in and you are never are out of style. You are good at knowing how to satisfy everyone else. You have probably disappeared for a few days more than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned Being married and having children are important to you, but only after you have had your share of fun times.
(24-28 points) You are Elmo:
(29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants: THIS IS ME!!!
You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend that anyone could ever have and never wants to lose. You never cause harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life is a journey, it's funny and calm for the most part. Stay away from traitors and jealous people, and you will be stress free.
(36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown:
You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious about all relationships. You are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few Birthdays. Don't let your passion confuse you with reality.
(44-50 points) You are Dexter :
You are smart and definitely a thinker... Every situation is fronted with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong family principles. You maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad situation when it comes.
Try to do less over thinking every once in a while to spice things up a bit with spontaneity! Now don't spoil it! Have some fun!!!

I myself was even eyeing on the board game Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? I sometimes get to see the show on TV and I really find it interesting that's why I am thinking of buying it so that we can have some fun during the day of Christmas.

But I was thinking of a different adventure if we travel by car to Spain instead and I would love to stay in one of the nice Hotels in Barcelona where local stars Judy Santos and Ryan Agoncillo have been and they really enjoyed the place because among the places in Europe Ryan has been to, it was not as hot as the other places he had been to in Europe.
Well I am the nanny this afternoon as my nanny went out to see her mom. She did not tell me though that she would be meeting her sister as they will be watching the movie of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo - One More Chance. Huh she might be afraid to tell me that coz I might not let her go out. She had been absent for two days in a row this month and I thought she would credit that to her day off but I guess everybody needs a rest away from work. Well for me I still am doing some work at home and with my nanny gone for the afternoon. I will resume that later. I am glad though that my sister covered up for me and she is now the one watching CT after I fed him with Cerelac awhile ago.

I really am amused when I see this photo in my other blog. CT gets a taste of his 10th-month birthday cake which is a choco moist cake which we bought at Joniel's. We noticed that CT wants to taste anything that he sees as food. So while we were taking photos of him this morning as souvenir for his 10th month birthday yesterday, he was really eager to taste his cake and look at him here with his face having a smudge of chocolate and yellow icing. He really seems to be enjoying licking his cake this morning while his daddy was taking pictures of him. He was even complaining after when we have to take away the cake from him and put it back to the refrigerator until we eat it. He still wants to continue licking his cake. We had to distract him till we were able to put back the cake inside the refrigerator.

There are Karisma Hotels which are nice beach resort in Riviera Maya in Mexico. Most of their guests in their resort are lovebirds and honeymooners. They are known for their destination weddings and they offer special packages for those who are going there to celebrate their wedding anniversaries. Some of their resorts are said to be for adults only so that they can make sure to their guests that they can really have a peaceful yet blissful and romantic vacation. I am already imagining in my mind staying there in their secluded nooks, hammocks where you can stay all afternoon while you enjoy watching the sunset together. I would love to have a very relaxing massage and try out this service from them.
For foodies like us, they serve Mexican, Seafoods, Asian and Italian food which they guarantee to give guests a very unique and high quality dining experience that would make you so impressed with their "Gourmet-Inclusive" cuisine from their expert chefs which they offer at their three restaurants namely: Arrecifes, La Carreta and Klay Taray. Also for those wanting to have a stress-free vacation visit Azul Blue in Riviera Maya which is said to be a vacation sanctuary for the guests coming there. Oh my I want to go there and have a new and romantic vacation and take time away from a stressful life.

Our next schedule of vaccination will be two months from now. That's quite a long gap. That will give us a breathing space from CT's expensive vaccinations but I think it's worth it as it is for CT's protection to his health. We were told that he will still have about 6 vaccines to go through but it won't be that close as in once a month I think. I just hope so that it would not be as expensive as the one we had this morning. Good thing we were given a P500 discount. Hope we can get another discount next time. Hehehe it's like patronage refund hahaha. :)
Which snack do you like to get when you go to the movies?
>>> When my hubby and I usually go to the movies, I like to buy Space Burger or Space Cheese Burger and bring some Nova. My hubby usually orders the same thing and we just go for mineral water.
What year did you start using the internet?
>>> Is started using the internet in the 1990's until now and I think more now as I enjoy blogging more and meeting new friends and acquaintances online.
What is your first name in Pig Latin? (Here’s how to speak it if you don’t already know!)
>>> ereTay :)
Name something you are picky about.
>>> I am picky when it comes to eating vegetables. Guilty but I am really picky when it comes to that and my mommy hates it. :)
Fill in the blanks: I ____ ____ yesterday and I ____ ____ today.
>>> I lived life yesterday and I enjoy life today.
Happy Friday's Feast!
It is Saturday once again and we are scheduled for to visit my baby’s doctor today for CT’s vaccination. I hope CT will not have any effects from this vaccination as there were times before when he would experience rashes a few hours or day after. He never had fever unlike other babies who have their vaccinations in health centers. I am not against vaccinations given by health centers. In fact I would have wanted to have CT’s vaccination from the health center. But I am afraid that he will have fever for I heard a lot of parents telling me that their babies have fever afterwards and sometime it will last for a few days sometimes 5 days. I do not want CT to experience that so we sacrifice in paying for a much higher price with our private doctor. Actually it had been a usual joke between us and our doctor when CT has his shots that we will be the ones who will have “fever” from the high cost of the vaccines. It eats up most of our savings but we have CT’s best interest in mind. Come to think of it we work to earn in order to provide the best as much as possible for CT. I have to go for we will be leaving in awhile. The doctor’s clinic today is until 12nn only and it’s already 11am.

In the past week, the roof has been installed, the temporary fence around the block where it is located has been removed and the area around the church was cleared and those passing by could already see it. This morning I saw my dad helping clean the area as the grounds are not yet cemented. He even asked me to help and I was on my way then to work. I had to say pass maybe next time when I do not have work.
I remember my former boss telling me that she does not want to grow that old and if I remember it right she told me too that in their family where she is the youngest child, there is a tendency that when they reach 69 years old someone passes away. She was kidding me that she might not reach that stage of being a senior citizen when she was admitted to the hospital a few months ago because of high blood and other complications. I think too that loneliness and being alone in the house with only the house helper there with her, it really has a negative effect on her well-being just like most elderly or senior citizens. I think that they must still do some productive work or daily activities which I think will help boost their health and morale as well. I would not like to be at their shoes and somehow be treated like I'm some liability to the family or community. That should never be the case for any senior citizen out there.
