Wednesday, September 22, 2010


Today, I submitted a letter to my director requesting that I be put on a part-time hours. My son is having difficulty with his math and reading subject (he can read very well, but his issue is comprehension). So, I needed more time to tutor him. I requested a 9a.m. to 1 p.m. schedule. I am really hoping that they would approve it. I am praying and crossing my fingers :)

Hubby's Birthday

It is my hubby's birthday last 14th of September. It's a weekday and we didn't do anything plus he didn't really wanna celebrate it. We made him two nice cards, bought a little balloon and a little cake and that was it. My son enjoyed making the cards :) Anyway, hubby just turned 46.

Happy Birthday hubby! Good health to everday! We love you!

Payday Again

Yay! It's payday again. I will be able to get me another set of uniform :) Anyways, nothing much to do tonight. Just have to tutor my son with his math, reading and spelling. It's a lot of work for him and myself. Hopefully he will concentrate and focus more tonight. And hopefully, I will have a lot of patience, patience and more patience. God help me :)

Lay Down All Day

Lay down all day. That's what I intend to do today. I'm so tired, sick and cough is really, really bothering me. The weather started changing a couple of days ago and it has affected me already. I read in one the circulating articles on the internet that commonly, we get at least 6 to 10 colds a year. Darn! That sucks... I don't wanna get sick all the time but it sure looked like it got me started already. Oh well, I'm just going to drink me a lot of water, orange juice, take cold medicine and lay down and watch the Matlock Marathon :)

Thursday, September 9, 2010


It is just Thursday but I can't wait till it is Saturday. Why? Because I've been waiting to watch the Matlock marathon. :) Since I was in high school I have been watching Matlock. I think I have watched every single episode of their show. It is of course, reruns, but heck! I still want to watch it. I just love watching courtroom drama :) I am going to buy me some BBQ sunflower seeds and soda and I'll be good to go. :)

Window Blinds

This past Sunday, my son really got on my last nerve. I told him not to play by my bedroom window because he is kind of messing with the blinds. That window blinds are not even 3 years old. Anyway, after telling him for about four times, I almost spanked his b*tt when I saw that the lower part of the blinds was tore. Darn! I really don’t want to buy new blinds because ours is barely new and I don’t want to go through measuring this and that; I am not a very handy person, for your information.

Anyway, what can I do? If it is ripped then I have to replace it. Plus, I needed to buy one for our kitchen window anyway, so I guess it is really time for a replacement. Do any of you know where I can buy blinds, whether it be Roller blinds, Roman blinds or Vertical blinds that is like 50% off? :) Right now, it is not in the budget so I’d like an affordable, but of course, of good quality. I need to get it as soon as possible before my sister visits me. I don’t want her to think that I don’t know how to take care of my house. :)

Change of Weather

I like the idea that it is almost fall and I really am ready for a change of weather. I got what I wished for. For two days now we’ve had temperature in the 70s and I like it, however, at this early fall season, I am starting to get sick already. I felt nauseous for the most part of the afternoon at work. I have been sneezing too and when I got home, I felt dryness in my throat and nose. I even had a slight headache. I took medicine however and hopefully I will feel better tomorrow morning. As I have said to one of my co-workers, I really don’t call off work when I’m sick (unless I have a temperature; don’t want our babies to catch fever) because I’m saving my absences for my son, when he gets sick.

Our New Uniform

Last Friday, we were closed due to our annual mandatory in-service meeting. The agenda was about our rules and guidelines, risk management plans, our policies, the yearly curriculum among others. In addition, we were told that we will have change of uniforms, from t-shirts with our company logo, to scrubs uniforms. Everybody got excited. They did not really give specifics of the scrubs; they just said that as long as it is of solid color, we are good.

I went from store to store last Saturday to check out available scrubs. Unfortunately, I did not like what they have. The fabric is not something I want to wear. Since I’m pressed for time, I just bought the one that fits me best. Next week I’m planning to buy a couple of more uniform scrubs so I don’t have to wash every night. This time, I will check out instead of wasting my time going to the store. Their site offers a wide array of nursing uniforms, lab coats, medical uniforms, and something that my co-workers and I need, women scrubs. Anyway, to all my nurse friends out there, if you’d like to see their designer nursing uniforms and accessories, visit them at Also, check their offer of free shipping on orders $155 or more! I have seen their scrubs and just can’t decide which color I want, I have the blue one already, so maybe the green scrubs? Hmm...We'll see.

Confusion ?

Last week, on my son's third day of school, the teacher approached me and said that after I picked up my son, there's a lady looking for him trying to pick him up and claiming that she's the mother. Though the teacher already know that I am his mother, she said, he got picked up already by his mother. The teacher said that she just might got confused cause she's not that familiar with her students yet. I didn't ask for more details, I just reiterated to her that no one is going to pick up my son but me and my husband.
