We drove to the DMV today to renew our tags for our vehicles. Dan registered his Jeep Cherokee under his name now, finally he has something he owns. We gave him his car on his 17th birthday last 2010, he has been driving it for over a year now. We carried him on our insurance because he was underage when we added him. Now that he is 18, we thought of taking him off our insurance and he gets his own. So I called Allstate, our insurance carrier. I told Wendi the situation and she strongly suggested to keep him on our insurance because it will be expensive for him to get his own. I guess because of his age. His car is a 1998 Jeep Cherokee, so it shouldn’t be that much, but because of his age, it will make the monthly payment higher.
I am not sure why it is less for him or for us if we carry him through our insurance. I forgot to ask the reason. He basically gives us his share of insurance when he gets paid at McDonalds, so he has responsibility. He also have a cell phone that he pays at least $50 a month. He makes money working part time, but he only pays for something that he chose to have. Driving a car is a luxury for him. I can give him a ride if he needs to work, his work place is only 2 miles away from where we live. Did he really need a cell phone? I didn’t know what cell phone looks like until I came to this country. We still pay for his school stuff, buy his clothes, pay for everything. Kids need to know that if they choose to have luxury in life, they have to pay and work hard to get it.
“Money don’t grow on trees” was my husband’s favorite phrase when the kids always ask for toys. We need to teach them to be responsible. While they don’t have their money, whatever mommy and daddy can give, it will do. Once they get a job, they can buy whatever they want as long as their bills are paid. In my son’s case, he pretty much stick to his routine. Give me money for insurance twice a month and pay his cell phone every month, whatever he does with his money, (no matter ho many time I tell him to save for his future) it would be his business , especially now that he is an adult. He might still have a mind of a child, but he needs to realize that he is no longer a child. And pretty soon, mommy and daddy are not going to be with him, that he will be on his own..

I didn’t realize that there are some people who are seeking treatment for hormonal changes. Reading this article opened my eyes that in few years time, I will be on my menopausal stage and my hormones would change drastically. I should be starting to read about the things that I have to expect when I am ready to menopause. I have heard from others that hormonal change is difficult. Hot flushes and being irritable for ladies and other things that I am not aware of. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement might be the best way for me to go through these changes. I have to research more about this. I have few more years, being ready is a big advantage, I want to know what to expect so I know how to deal with it..

Last night was our movie night, and this is what we watched. I thought I wasn’t going to like it, since I never seen the 2nd and the 3rd part. I seen the first one but I forgot the story, been a long time. When watching series like this, I want to start from the beginning to be able to comprehend the current story. Hubby promised that he will get me the first 3 and I will watch it again.
I love this movie, the action and the plot and since I love Kate Beckinsale, I watch every movie that she starred in. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I recommend that you see it. It’s a good one..
Enjoy your day!
My sister in law posted this old photo of my childhood and I thought it was so cute. I looked for the latest picture of myself and I put them together. I believe that I was around 4 years old when the YOUNG me was taken. and the OLD me was taken on February 14th, of the current year. We were about to go to my daughter’s Valentine lunch at school.
What, 36 years had passed between these 2 pictures and can you still see the resemblance? I can’t. I was also looking for some photos of my children if any of them would look like mwahhh!, I can’t find any. Aside from they are mixed race, they got their daddy’s handsomeness. I am not saying that I am ugly, all I am trying to imply is, they are more beautiful than yours truly
Well, I hope that everybody had a great Valentine’s day and I wish you all a happy and great day ahead of you..
So far nothing interesting happened, so I guess, that’s why I had nothing to write for the past few days. And I don’t like writing events that are depressing. As much as possible, I want to write something happy and fun. Aside from Facebooking and watching some TV series on Netflix, running errands and getting my weekly allergy shots, I just stay home with my 4 year old, the less I go out, the less I spend. It’s true, when I go out, I spend money on gas, then I go to a store, and see something that I don’t even need, and because I am an impulse buyer, I buy anything that I think is cheap even if I don’t really need it. That is just me.
Lately though, I am doing really good. I guess because I set a goal which I will never reveal until it’s close to that time. For the meantime, I will enjoy my life as inexpensive as possible. Oppsss…didn’t I just purchase a Valentine gift for my husband? (actually I think I kind of bought it for the whole family..)which cost a little way over my budget. But, oh well..it’s an investment and besides, he works hard so he deserves nice thing. I remember last night that I told him what to give me for Valentines day. Either a computer chair, since mine is busted (I fell on the floor one night and my butt still hurts) or a headphone (I broke mine, because I got up and walked away without realizing that I had it on) or an Ipod (wohooo! I can listen to music while cleaning around the house, nice..) I told hubby that either one of those will be a great present from him. Knowing my husband, he will get me whatever I want as long as it’s practical and affordable. “The King of the Thrifty Clan.” But, no, I will take that back. He is not cheap, he is a smart shopper. And I love him for that..
Well, I will see if I can write on my other blogs too. I have to think of topics that I can compose, something nice and cute. If you have nothing to do, you can visit my other blogs.. Thanks a lot and have fun!
My friend Christy got married last year, December 01st, and because I got busy with lots of things, I am posting it a little bit late. But I still want to feature their wedding here on my blog since this is what I do. I talk about my friends, family and anything that I like to write. I don’t post “just” anybody on my blog..They need to be someone close to my heart.

Many establishments are now made out of steel buildings for the durability and safety of people who enter it. I have seen many different places like churches, agricultural or recreational buildings and many more that seem to be durable and great for weather issues. My church is planning on moving to another place and we’re all talking about building new church. Our pastor is suggesting that it would be better if it’s made out of either steel or metal building. We will see if it will materialize because we’re still raising the money that we are going to use. I hope we can afford to build a new church, we are due for a better one.
These 2 young ladies are traveling today going to the Philippines, and they are leaving me, wahhhhhhh! They are going on vacation for 3 weeks. Well, my cousin is getting married on the 8th of February, that’s the main reason why they are going home. I guess, they are due for a vacation, so I will wait for my turn.
To you both, enjoy yourselves, take lots of photos, so I can cry and tears of envy will roll down my cheeks. Take care! Have fun!!!
Bring me some Pulvoron, Magic Sarap and other Philippines stuff. Don’t forget my dried fish….

I was so excited when we signed up for WildBlue internet Steamboat-Springs. I didn’t know what I was going to do in our new house without internet access. Email and Facebook is how I get in touch with most of my friends and family! I love keeping up with everyone that I love through Facebook. Being so far away from my family is not easy, but when I get on Facebook, I can see pictures of my nieces and nephews and hear all about what is going on in their lives. I love seeing pictures of my nieces and nephews, but some of my friends seriously post pictures of their baby every ten minutes doing pretty much the same exact thing. While I was pregnant with my daughter I swore I would not be one of those moms that posted a ridiculous amount of picture of her. But, alas, I am one of those moms! I can’t help myself! I will get her dressed and decide that the world, or at least my Facebook friends, needs to see this precious little girl!
