New Look for Tere's World

A new look here after quite sometime of sticking to my simple red three column blogger template. To feel refreshed and get more inspired to blog here, I decided to have a new look here and this is it. I was going through all my files of blogger templates and could not find what I want until i decided to go online and search from the site that I like and viola I found this.

This new template makes me feel younger hahaha! Anyway, I just hope I would have much time to update this one as my number of blogs to update continue to grow you know.

Happy Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Around mid morning, my son and I went out for a breakfast treat from hubby who was at the office. While going to Jollibee and McDonalds, my son was saying "Plane Mama plane!" while I thought he was pointing out to the cell towers we passed by. I was about to correct him and just in time I saw the air plane passed by going to land at the nearby airport. It was covered by the trees we passed by and all I could see was the tower then. :)

Three Things I'm Looking Forward To

The three things I'm looking forward to for now: first, my birthday next month as I am hoping to spend it with my family some place else I hope. But of course we will probably have the traditional get-together with my own family in my parents' house.

Second, would be getting the fruits of my hard earned and labored money which was invested. I hope the company where it would come from will be able to pay full on the date they have promised without any hassle or any so and so excuse that they could not give it or else.

Third for now would be that I'm looking forward to a summer vacation with my hubby and son even for just a few days some place else. Just to give ourselves a break and see another new place. I just hope that by then we can have someone go with us and help us out with our son so that the travel won't be as tiring unlike when it's just me and hubby.

Just Thinking

I was just thinking what if I followed what I wanted and enrolled in nursing which was my first choice for a course in college. I might be having a health care career somewhere abroad or probably be like my sis in UK. Quite a few of my classmates in high school and in college are now practising registered nurses here and abroad.

My cousin who also happens to be my godmother in my baptism asked my mom years ago when we had a reunion of sort, why I did not take up nursing. Well my mom did not want me to although I already had an educational plan that time. So the reason could not be financial as I thought so. Anyway, that is the past and I was just thinking what if. Well life goes on whatever life brings us.

Wow it's 4AM already! No wonder I am hungry already. Yes I am hungry so early in the morning. I was supposed to go back to sleep more than an hour ago but I guess time flies when you are online especially for me.

Well I was trying to update my other homes in the blogosphere and I just forgot about the time. With y mind working I got hungry as in and I just wanna let this pass as I have eaten quite a lot during dinner last night as we went out to eat at Dencia's where I have not eaten for long time. It was to celebrate my buying my new other partner in life. Well I will blog about that later.

For now I will just have to think I should really curb my craving to eat at just about anytime like this early hour in the morning or else I might just need to have to check on those weight loss pills again.

Wishing for More Time

I wish I had more free time to be able to blog and update all of my other sites. I have a handful if you are not aware of how busy it can be just keeping the other homes in the blogosphere updated while having to manage having my two year old son trying to divert and grab my attention from my laptop.

I wish he has a constant playmate other than me of course but while some people think having another baby is the answer, I would like to postpone that. It isn't as easy as it looks for some not only financially but on other aspects as well.

For now, I can only wish we can get a reliable and hardworking nanny. The last one we tried was not good and was picky and was afraid of hurting my son. Well she is quite maarte for one and seems like she does not want to stay at home as what she reasoned out to us. Anyway, it was good to let her go rather than be a burden to us.

I just wish I can now more confidence in letting CT be on his own more in going around the house but I guess I really won't have much time to blog when he is awake as he wants me in the things he does. Though I'm trying to manage and adjust to how things are now and trying to work out the time I have for other things. I guess it also needs to sacrifice.

I just hope I still had my sis available to assist me at certain days but then she is now the "guard" in my sis MG's new house.

Sofa Snuggling

Who snuggles up with you on the sofa?
>> My two year old son usually snuggles in the sofa with me when we are watching TV. While hubby on the other hand sits in front of his PC right next to where our sofa is in our living room.

But then when my little boy gets bored and does not like what I am watching on TV and wants my attention coz maybe he gets bored just lying there in the sofa next to me, he would start playing with the TV or take the remote control and change the channel often to his fave channel in cable which is the sound stage (videoke) channel.

I would try to urge him to come back to the sofa with me but then again he would probably go back bu he would sit next to the 3D turbo fan and play with it which makes me wish that we would have a safety equipment that would protect him from getting hurt or damaging the TV also. Oh kids are kids and I just have to be more watchful, careful and extend my patience with the two year old boy who has a growing sense of independence and exploring. Okay my talk here has gotten away from the question hahaha! I gotta go back to sleep now.

All About You

Who is your favorite author?
>> Danielle Steel among others...

What is your favorite appetizer?
>> Among other faves I would have to say cheese sticks.

Where did you go to college?
>> Ateneo.

When did you have your Golden Birthday? (a Golden Birthday is when you are the same age as the birth date. Ex: 20 on the 20th)
>> Almost 19 years ago (by next month)...

Why did you pick the outfit you have on?
>> Because it's comfy to wear at home...

Time For...

What is it time for right now?

It is time again to be back online coz my little boy is now sleeping beside his dad in our son's room. My eye strain earlier this evening threatened to worsen my looming headache but after a few hours break as we went out, it somehow did not push through and somehow subsided but still there. So then again, I am back online and checking on my emails and searching online looking for those Pigeon Forge Tennessee hotels which my friend mentioned to me awhile back in our online chat. And now it is time for me to check the email my friend sent me two days ago.

If you are really thirsty, what do you reach for to quench your thirst? Water? Juice? Or something else?

I would definitely first reach out for water probably cold water especially when it so hot. But if there is another choice for something to quench my thirst then I would like to reach out for a refreshing cold, natural and freshly made fruit juice or fruit shake maybe. It is summer time here in our part of the world and I am starting to crave for fresh fruit juices or shakes. One of my favorite is fresh mango shake and avocado shake. There is a little store in front of the nearby school and the store is called Shake Galore. I started to like their mango shake and avocado shake that costs only P10/cup. It is a rather small cup but then it could already quench my thirst for a cold refreshing drink especially when it is so hot in the afternoon.

10 Ways You Can Make Your Life Better

I am back joining the Ten on Tuesday and so here is my list for this week!

10 Ways You Can Make Your Life Better:
  1. Live with the 3 E's - Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
  2. Make time to practice meditation, yoga, and prayer.
  3. Play more games.
  4. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  5. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  6. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  7. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  8. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
  9. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
  10. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
That is my list though I can still go on with my list actually but these are just some that I can share for now. Well life goes on so no matter what trial, challenges and failures may try to put you down and try to stop you from moving on, you just got to move on in a positive manner. Okay enough for now as I still have to find something about that stuff that hubby was telling me about earlier before he went to take our son to his late morning nap.

Have a better life! Good day everyone! Smile! :)
