Rem’s final grade
Rem’s Art workshop is almost over, and their grades have already been given this morning. She was so happy about it, though, she had to ask me what “very outstanding” mean – cute! I have always been so proud of her talent, and this grade is just another affirmation that it is just right to feel this way about it. With this, I have of course my “Thank You’s”. First, To God, for the gift of Art to Rem, and all her other talents, too! May you continue to guide us in bringing her up, and be able to treat all her talents for your Glory. To Mr. Sena, thanks for sharing your talent – you’re so cool! To my Honey, thank you so much for being so supportive and for giving Rem the opportunity to take up Art lessons again. To Rem, thank you so much for everything! You are truly God’s gift to me and to your, Poppa! Stay as sweet as you are. Congratulations! We love you so much!

What I like most among the many reality TV shows are those that get to show my idols’ lifestyle. Just recently, KrisTV, visited Billy Crawford’s place and I was so amazed at how equipped he is with his musical gadgets. He was so well-versed about sharing his stuff and even mentioned about having a practical buy for a cheap midi to usb which he considers really helpful. Being a singer/rapper/composer himself, he knows how such equipment are priced, so he makes sure he takes care of them, too. It was such a good show, because, I was not only able to watch him perfom again on TV, but I had a glimpse of how his daily routine goes, especially, how he lost a lot of weight and the kind of healthy lifestyle he is into these days.
It is almost inevitable not to have bugs in the house especially if you have a kid/s around. In my case, I am so cautious when it comes to bug sprays because it might contaminate our food and utensils. Those that are chemical-based are not only strong in scents for me, but is generally harmful to ones health. So, I always go to shops that sell natural products and I am so glad to have this powder that is even safe to put in the dish area. I like it that it’s odorless and is really effective in driving away those bugs (ants, dust mites, even cockroaches among others). My only problem is, there is only one shop (in kiosk) at the Robinson’s Galleria that sells said product. Next time, I think I might need to hoard:-) If you’ve been experiencing the same insect issue as I did before, you should try this.
This is not a paid review, but, my own experience on how effective this product is.
We are less busy this summer compared to the previous ones. I decided to just enroll Rem into one activity (Art class) because it’s so hard to be out most of the time with such summer heat that we have (almost) everyday. Even before summer began, I already had rules and activities to be done . How about you, do you have special rules and activities for your kids this time? Since it’s just the two of us, her tasks are clear: she has to fix our bed upon getting up since she’s the last one to rise, she also has to set the table for our meals, and help me out with other chores or kiddie errands around our tiny place. I am so happy that she is able to do these pretty well, without complaint. When it comes to TV watching and playing videogames, I am not so strict on her because this is just the right time to be generous to her with such activities. Yes, she finally got an Ipad after almost a year of asking for it. We (and hubby) just agreed that this is the best time, so, she won’t be so into it anymore when school begins. It would be easier to regulate usage of it by then. I also make sure she reads a book (In Filipino) everyday, so she’ll improve on the said subject both in reading and in comprehension. I hope this season will be just as fun and fruitful as the past ones. Let us enjoy the summer.
Hubby’s job is soon ending. He’s got to search for a new company to work for, and has to prepare on moving out also from his present flat. He had been so busy checking his materials for packing and making sure that all his stuffs would be in proper order. It is better to save old things that are still useful than be forced to buy new ones just because you broke it during the moving process. I’m sure by next week, he will be all set for either transfer or a vacation back home. Thus, he needs to make sure, all his boxes are secured, in case he might have to travel back to the Philippines. A short vacation for a month would be just perfect.
