My wife's obsession

    Dealing with my polycystic ovarian syndrome is a struggle all its own. It was my stressful problem. How ironic of life because there are some couples who been trying to conceive and others were so blessed and has too many children and we, the less fortunate are doing the best things just to get conceived. Though it is hard to take medication correctly and follow on what the doctor recommendation still we seriously take it all.

    In our office, Seven of my officemates is in there due time this year. Anne just labored a bouncing baby boy last Feb 9.Next in due is Edwin’s wife, Mariel this coming March with a baby girl, there first baby and  followed by Kareen who is expecting to gave birth to a baby boy in April  and Emily Amor  who is in  due  this coming  May with a baby girl. In our cubicle, Sharon is also expecting .She is now on her second trimester and will be due this July and in the accounts payable department, Jen and Marnelli is also in the period of gestational development  which is also due on August and September. I was just very observant to them and I enjoy exchanged thoughts with them about the feeling of being about to produce life.  Some of them experienced bed rest because they got early contractions. Early contractions is risky, there will be tendency that the baby might be aborted.

   From my friend’s thoughts, they said, it’s better to take folic three months before conceiving. There are a lot of online subscriptions that experts give you tips, correct guide through way to pregnancy and I am one who subscribes Beth Kielys, on line guide, though I can’t afford to buy her e-book  as of now but still I followed her first  seven  mistakes that should avoid when you are planning to conceived. It is fascinating to read new moms sending their appreciation to Beth on how the author help there struggles. It gets me hope that one day we could have also our own little one.

Souvenirs stuff

In the small corner of my cubicle here in my working place I pasted   different kinds of baby’s  personalized invitation letters that I have collected from my officemates who has already kids and from my nieces letter cards when I was chosen to be there godparent .The tokens and souvenirs are also displayed in my table. This stuff is my stress reliever.  And every time I look at them especially those that have baby pictures in the first cover of the letter and in the small paper attached in the tokens got me relieve from my boring and tiring work. Baby’s smiles for me are like a pill to overcome tiredness.
Praying of having an offspring in the future, I already foresees the picture of what it would be look like on his/her baptism day and there first birthday party. I have already an idea on how to make my personalized invitations letter for them, and the nice souvenir and giveaways and a place that perfect for family gathering. If God will bless us a baby boy, maybe he would be named ISAAC MISHAEL, my choice. It is come from the Bible story. Isaac is the first born son of Abraham from his wife Sarah. And Mishael is a scrambled letter from the name Ishmael who is also first born son of Abraham from Sarah’s slave, Hagar.  I haven’t yet made a name for a girl but I like the name RIVERS.
           Papemelroti has best for all occasion favors and giveaways. They have different charming tokens. Chimes token best occasions, Prayers and verses, angels, jar and boxes, magnets buttons are examples other designs in affordable price. I know one day I can have this stuff for my own little one. And I’m happy that I can get all this idea now through internet.

Love love love

I remembered when I was in college; I made a term paper for my theology subject about sacraments. I was assigned by the group to tackle about sacrament of matrimony. Hence, I’m single and couldn’t relate about marriage life, I diverted my topic about the basis of real love before entering and accepting the sacrament of marriage.

Marriage is sacred; it is a consecrate of two people to join for life and accepts procreation. In the Bible story, the first wedding is made in the place of Cana when God shows his miracle, making water into wine. (I just knew this thing when I joined precana seminar with my husband to be during complying requirements for our church wedding last June 2010).

When a couple decided to get married, it is because they love each other. They wanted to create a family. Our love is the main reason why we want to spend the rest our life to someone and devote our time for them. Love has two foundations and it is important to know the basis before engaging marriage life. What was love meant for you? Is it base on love or lust? Love base on lust characterized with pleasure, desire and sex. It has sweetness and never takes long. Once the sweetness last, arguments and misunderstanding begins. It follows to the sayings “Mans gives love in order to get sex and Woman gives sex in order to get love”.  Real love in the other hand carries the characteristic of persistent determination; it doesn’t need to a person to love you back because it is unconditional. It has patience, respect, understanding and time.

It is challenging on how to deal with your partner’s indifferences. Love keeps stronger when you experience difficult moments and all you will need was support from each other.

Take a ride with "Habal habal"

A year ago, my husband loaned a Suzuki pro raider motorcycle for personal service from work .He amortized it in the amount of P 2,600 ea month for 36 months. Riding motorcycle is safe; it can be risky if the driver doesn’t have any safety measures like wearing proper helmet. Other wears some body gears for personal protection from sunlight and dash during riding.

In our place, motorcycle is also used for public means of transportation aside from tricycle. They called in “habal-habal”. It is indeed an income generating activities. It is an idyllic work. My brother’s source of living is also habal-habal and tricycle and he earned more than a minimum wage earner a day.

Here in our place, if you want to avoid traffic in going to work, school, etc., "habal-habal" drivers are the best one to hire rather than taxi. Lesser cost/fare and you will arrive to the place you want in time.

Dream House

   My favorite magazines are home and living, log houses from Japanese style and house keepings. I like those kinds of magazines because it inspires me on how to create my own simple, beautiful and comforting dwelling place in the future.

   Since sweethearts, I used to ask and suggest my husband to go mall hopping.  I take him in kitchen wares area just looking for glass wares, nice plastic wares and in textile area where you can find colorful curtains, pillow cases and bedclothes and other home d├ęcor. Indeed, I enjoyed looking around in appliances area. It’s good to see different sizes of wooden craft that would perfectly fit to your own house. Touching and feeling the soft couch and trying to sit on it.

   Every couples dream is to have there own house. My ideal house is to have simple 2 bedroom house that has beautiful porch. I want the main door of my house fronting where the suns rise. It should have a spacious living room that good for family gatherings; I want my kitchen with granite countertops and wooden cabinets for my stainless utensils. My master suite has powder room and a terrace where I can see the sunsets.
   It is very nice to imagine the picture of your own dream house. How does it look like? I wish that this picture would make come up to us.

Do some list!

   They said that in order to keep and to get the things that you wanted is you need to plan it well. I never tried writing my goal and wish sheet because in my realization it would not come up with. I got the idea from a TV personality and she said that every time the year ends she made some list and arranges her wishes that she wanted to fulfill on the following year. I realized that I do something reverse from her idea, instead of wishes to fulfill I do have list of my payables and dues that need to be compensate, in result I have less savings.

  I started my new year signing up in a small cooperative in our office, investing money into some income generating activities. In this way I could save 30% of my monthly salary. We have electronic load retailing business and I want to revive from lost of income. Our small business was stress because of personal withdrawals.

   All my personal wish and wants this year are all set aside because I wanted to recover on the fiscal crises that we had suffered last year. Now we will prioritize things that are important to us. We hope this year would be great for us to regain our financial problems.

Pba Game

   Basketball is my favorite sports and my favorite past time is to watch nba games.Every game in nba is so exciting, you can see how players strive hard to win the game. But just last night, i watch the semi finals in our countries Pba, I thought it was just nba that fanatics like me enjoys and excites to watch. As yesterdays game between Petron Blaze and their much rival the Talk and Text. The crowd is full of excitement everytime a player scores. It was a tough game that everyone was panic on whom the game will be. The game end by just a single point. And Talk and Text win the game. I begin to like watching Pba now because of the development of everygame plan and every player skills improve, not like old times.
