My Amazing Toddlers

I have a secret to tell you. My toddlers are spider kids. I like naming cute nicknames to my kids depending on the activity they do. Since they both get into trouble by climbing everywhere i think they have blood like Spiderman. We do not have library but we have this tall bookshelf in our bedroom. We have couple of ladder or stool but not specifically library step stools. Anyway, our bookshelf has 6 or 7 shelves and I put some of DVDs on the fifth shelves thinking they can’t reach it. It was scary as I thought but I had no idea how they able to reach those DVDs without using any stools. After that incident I stopped putting DVDs or anything that might interest them to avoid accident. You see now, why I called them spiderkids.

Happy Holidays

A wish for a joyful Christmas to you all.

 

Today is my 5th Christmas here in the USA.  The longing of celebrating it with my family and having a festive celebration still lingers in my heart.  I admit as years pass by, USA Christmas becomes bearable.  I always miss Philippine Christmas but I have resigned to the fact that, USA is my home now and this is where I will celebrate Christmas.

Anyway, we had a great Christmas.  My daughter slept earlier than usual because Santa will come.  So, Santa came and the little girl is so excited of the things inside the stockings and the gifts that Santa brought.

We spent our Christmas day with Mom and Dan.  Santa came there too with more stuff.  My little girl had so much fun opening her presents. After opening presents, I made our Christmas dinner.  It was a simple meal but we all enjoyed it.

 

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas!

New Year 2012

“Got a little behind when Christmas was here but caught up with this wish for a Happy New Year”

This was the card that we sent to friends and family members.  We mailed it after Christmas.  Time passed me by during the holidays that I wasn’t able to send our holiday cards earlier.

On being diabetic

I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant 5 years ago. According to some experts, 1 out of 3 person who have gestational diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes later on their life. I am one of those. I have type 2 diabetes. I just found it out when I was hospitalized two weeks ago.

Being a diabetes, I need to control my blood sugar. One way of controlling it is to lose weight. I have read that irvingiappress shows clinically proven results to lower cholesterol and help regulate blood sugar. I can’t say that it really work because I haven’t tried it myself.

Personally, I am learning to count my carb intake and I am exercising. It helps me in lowering down my blog sugar. I am hopeful that with healthy eating I will be able to control my diabetes.

#225/BPC – Mom’s Request

The last time I talked to my Mom in the phone, we were talking about sending a package for Christmas. I also informed her that the balikbayan box that I sent will arrive soon. It is still floating in the ocean somewhere (hahaha).

Anyway, she requested that should I send a box for Christmas, she wants some Glucerna. My mom is diabetic too and she said that she likes the glucerna. She can’t find the liquid glucerna there in our city, the available is the powdered one but she prefers the one in the can. Besides, she told me that glucerna there is very expensive.

So, when we went to the store, I bought her 2 packs and I am glad I used the coupon $3 off 2 packs.

 

Engagement Ring

Ring

I got engaged year 2006 and I have worn this ring since my fiance then (hubby now) gave it to me. I wore it until I gained so much weight that it didn’t fit my finger anymore. I got many advices to have it resized but I didn’t want to. I want the ring as it is.

Recently, I loss weight and I am so glad that I can now wear my engagement ring again! Yeah!

 

Responses:
