Another Update

Another update from G has made the PR obsessed world of site owners and bloggers on a frenzy for a while. I am not much affected now unlike before. Though I still continue to wish the changes were alyways favorable to me and will be better.

I lost more PR in my homes in this update comapred to the last when I retained most of the high PR of my homes. A little sad but not that sad anymore. I know things will go round and what goes down, will go up once again. With the ever changing algorithm of G, the PR will come back. Hopefully soon! Please be kind and more generous next time to us G when you have another update. *wink*

Sports

Hubby and I would be happy if our little boy would show interest in various sports including ping pong which has been a fave sport among us siblings when we were much younger; tennis which I used to follow so much on TV during my teenage years; soccer which he has played starting this last summer though he was really interested in it since last school year; and even bowling. Or basketball perhaps just as we have seen the NBA Draft the other day.


I just found this photo of him when he just turned three years old and he instantly showed interest in bowling as this was the first time he ever tried the sport. He really enjoyed it and you could see that he easily learned and was trying to play it like he knew the game well.

Wealth

Wealth may not be something we physically have but we as a family feel blessed enough financially as we could say we are able to live in a comfortable life better than what we imagine. Do not mistake us for being rich because we are not and we also have financial concerns that we strive to cope and handle. That is why we continue to work hard to earn.
Though is you have the wealth then think and handle it well. If you know well then you must have considered the services of this firm Missoula, MT wealth management group that handle and manages the wealth and investments of the valued clients.

Upgrade

The other day while waiting for the little boy who is playing at the new mall's play house, hubby and I went around and found ourselves at Gui where they have a few digital slr cameras including Canon, and our fave Nikon among which has one of the DSLR model which we want to upgrade to.

They only have the kit set and were not selling the body only. We already have the lens same as that of the kit lens so it would not be practical anymore to have two same kind of dslr lens. We may just have to wait longer till prices go down and they will have the body only unit. Then maybe we can upgrade. It would be great to have a new one by the Kadayawan Festival 2011 which is a truly good event to have a photo shoot.

Playing with the Tape

The little boy is playing with the tape again as he watches Barney this morning. He is actually taping all of the note pads he has posted around the LCD TV with his initials / nickname written by him on them. We encourage him to write more his name. 

I just might need to buy another scotch tape soon at the bookstore. I am looking for more creative things for him to play with. I find various note pads and post its with designs printed on them. He loves playing with these materials. For now, he is content playing with the tape until it runs out I guess.

Learning to Grill

We had a simple family get together yesterday. The night before a friend shared some photos of the food she grilled for their weekend get together. It made hubby and me think maybe learning to grill food on our own would be a good idea and bonding activity to do with the little boy during our weekend since our weekend usually does not fall on the regular weekend.

I know there are good choices of gas and electric grills. I like this table top or those portable grills that you can carry with you on out of town trips perhaps. I am not sure though what kind of grill my friend used. But the food she grilled especially the salmon looks so delish in the photo. We missed my brother in law who passed away already. He was good at grilling and doing barbeque. Those were years ago. 

Now it would be fun to learn to grill and do it at my sister's house. She shared last night while we were waiting for our ride home that she plans to extend her patio and make the front lawn more spacious for us to use during our family get together. She has a big space outside her house.It would accommodate enough space for us in the future where we can grill and have a simple barbecue party with the family and kids to enjoy.

Golf

While doing some house chores, I saw hubby looking at a golf match for awhile on TV that reminds me of that golf gps finder I read about last night. To our surprise, the little boy joined in too and he said he wants to play the game. Not in reality probably but in a game app.

He is into soccer but we were surprised he got interested in golf. Though he knew golf when he used to play virtual game of golf in the iPod Touch. We used to play it together months before. But when he got bored with the iPod Touch, he spent more time then using the Galaxy Tab but there is no golf game app installed there. I wonder if there is a golf game app for Android. Better have this sport game app than those other non educational games that I see elsewhere. 

No Drowse Meds for Colds

I have a colds right now and it has been here for the past three days I think. I wonder if it's really effective to drink those no drowse medicine for colds. I mean are they really effective in not making you drowsy? I wonder because when I started taking one, I felt more sleepy and my nose literally started to drip. Sorry for ther term. I had to have the tissue by my side all the time aside from trying to fight off the drowsiness as i try to catch up with some work here at home. 

There are aactually two choices for me to drink when it comes to these no drowse meds for colds. I am not sure though as to which one is more effective and does not make me drowsy - the Deco or the Neo. If I have my way, I'd rather just drink as much water and juice as I can rather than drink these meds for colds. But then again maybe taking these meds becomes necessary.

Beauty

Some people are truly particular with their look and beauty. For some they go to the extent of learning the art of cosmetology just like an opportunity offered by this Baltimore beauty school for those who may also want to pursue a career or perhaps a business of their own by having a salon one day. This beauty institute continues to expand up to this day opening doors and opportunities to people who love beauty and making other people beautiful.

Weekend

It is Saturday now and a weekend. I don't know but I woke up feeling it is not yet the weekend. But it is here and we have to make the most of it. The boys and I have a few hours to enjoy this real weekend for us though we already have our "own weekend" a few days ago during hubby's  days off from work.

We don't have a normal sked like many families. We are among those with weird daily sked that is why some friends wonder if hubby has work or not since they sometimes see us at the mall during "normal office hours". 

A few years ago, it was hard for me to accept his work sked especially when I was still working in the corporate world. After I resigned to become a SAHM/WAHM, I have learned to adjust and now has  somehow forgotten how weird our sked can be sometimes. But in the end we can just be thankful that he has work and we have weekends of our own time and day.

Taken

I just realized last night that someone took my blog away. Blogger locked down one of my blogger sites last year and I just do not know but out of the blue, I decided to visit it last night. Then I found a new blog yet still empty has been made for it by a different person. 

I wanted to ask that person to return the blog to me for there are still links from my other blogs to that site. Anyway, I doubt he will give that back. I then remember hubby said recently that he was able to get back a blogger blog which has the same fate as mine. I did not check my site back then. The blog was taken last month. Anyway, maybe I should just update the dot com blog that was supposed to take over that blogger blog's niche. If only I have more time in these busy days ahead of me.

Overheard

When I overheard these two men walking behind us in the mall who I assume they were lawyers talking about some product liability claim case, it made me think of the Topamax lawsuit all at the same time. I never wish to be involved in any product liability case. Even if the birth defect that results from having used that product could not be a mother's fault, still I never want any child to suffer because of it.

Just in case you need help, you can contact O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949.

Rain

Rain came pouring down just awhile ago. I guess our plan to go out will have to be postponed. One of us will just have to go out and do the errand tonight or just postpone it all for tomorrow. We decided to stay home for now while waiting for something. 

Rain in MM has been crazy they say. I read tweets of that since last night. That was just a low pressure area related rain last night. Good thing the rain here isn't that crazy. Classes were suspended today in MM but there will be classes already tomorrow. While here in the city classes were normal. And it was hot all day. It only rained after the sun has set. I guess it was a way to cool down the earth after a hot sunny day here.

Afternoon Snacks at McDonald's Abreeza Ayala Mall Davao

 

Had some afternoon snacks with the boys one day at McDonald's Abreeza Ayala Mall Davao. Still as busy as their other branch in an old mall in town. I guess more people come to their fast food chain because it is more affordable compared to other new fast food restaurants.

The crew here are those they have pulled out from the branch near us outside the VP mall. I recognized two of them. I guess they have to put the best ones in this new branch at the newest mall in town.

Busy Lawyer

We were supposed to meet with some old friends and another friend last weekend. But she is one busy lawyer that it is often hard to catch her free time when one of the older friends who are already based abroad would come home and would like to meet us.  

I know being a lawyer is no easy job but it can be very rewarding too. But handling lawsuits just as I got to think of the Topamax lawsuit handled by the O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 tells me it is not an easy job after all. So we do understand now the very busy schedule of our friend who is indeed one busy lawyer. The last time we met, she was handling another product liability claim by one of her old and valued clients.
