Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping

Just yesterday, a Facebook friend gave thanks to those around her i.e her family and dear friends. And then, she wished everyone Happy Thanksgiving. Then, I remembered : Black Friday!!'s not that I think that Thanksgiving should be disregarded or labeled "unimportant" but you shouldn't be thankful only on that day. You should be grateful everyday of our lives. I am truly. And that is why (and how) Black Friday shopping is the ultimate thing to do starting NOW.

I can't wait for the virtual doors to open for me to spend my hard earned money from Paypal. heheh...Give me a break la, I have been diligently saving and since I have not a chance to venture to the US, I'll do some virtual shopping for now. Besides, there are plenty of things that I need in my life right now. For instance, a new video camera would be nice esp for recording the girls' daily antics. One that allows me to plug it straight onto my tv instead of us having to download videos onto my computer. 

Apart from that, plenty to do during the hols. Get my home spruced up for Christmas. Put the tree up for instance. We were advised to put it up as ASAP (like right now) because 1 month goes by very quickly. So, yes, we will do it this weekend. The next thing, is to get the presents. I plan on "making" the female adult presents and buy the rest..hehe. Oh, don't ask. I'll give you a hint though : not enough time. 

So you see, time is of the essence here. Seriously lacking in that department and I seriously need to get my butt moving. Ciao time!

all dressed up

Ever since being a SAHM, which is coming close to 6 years now, I have been slacking on myself. I mean, I hardly dress up. Don't talk about putting on make-up or even accessorize. First of all, it does save me some $$ for not having to buy these extras. Secondly, even if I didn't want to save and I still end up buying, where am I going to wear them to? Not as if I get to go out on a daily basis or at nights. By 9pm, I am usually exhausted to the bone.

But, it's nice to dress up once in a while, ain't it? It's nice to have that pair of heels, get eyelash extensions from and not forgetting, that little black dress. Ah...nothing like a perk-me-up to liven up an otherwise boring day.

Praying for others

Just a lil update : We have been sick the past couple of weeks. More specifically, Mini and I. It started off with Mini having fever, then spiraled into a full blown cough and cold. Needless to say, I also got the whole enchilada. 

But, we are better now. THANK GOD! I hate being sick simply because I cannot afford to be sick. Even though Ash volunteered to take care of us (bless her little soul)...nah, I still cannot get sick. It's not even an option, it's mandatory. No fun being a mom, ya!!

So, anyway, speaking of Ash, before chowing down her lunch, she said a little prayer for her friend at school today. It's something they do at her school and because her class is a really small class (all 10 of them in total), they are pretty close. And the teacher always tells them whenever any of their classmate is sick or unwell, and she'll get the class to pray for him/her. Nice right?! 

I'm not if she understands what praying means, what prayer means...or for her, this is just novelty because we don't go to church. Ash is the only kid whose parents aren't church-goers. And, no, we don't have a problem with her doing the praying thing, saying grace before meals (she does that sometimes). We don't stop her. Whatever it is, it's good for her spiritually, if you think about it. It's always good to have faith or believe in spirituality. 

All that will change next year for Ash. She will be going to a different school, have new friends, new environment, new teacher(s). I really like where she's going to right now but you know, it's time to move on. She knows she'll be going to a new school (and she's pretty excited about it!) but I don't think it has dawned upon her that her friends will not be coming along and that she'll be doing this all on her own. I am nervous for her. I need a prayer.  

Whatever the year holds for her, the only thing that will remain constant is that she can always count on her prayers. Even now, I always tell her that whenever she's unhappy or scared, she should pray and she does. It's the one thing that no one can take away from her. I am happy she's doing it too. 

p.s : Me blabbering on and on. Lots to update but I have forgotten half of what I had initially want to say. That's the problem when you hold off for far too long and when you try to backtrack, it's not an easy task. 

Besides, I am still not used to the school run. I am hoping for more time during the school hols even if the kids are with me 24/7. Still, I get to save so much time from being on the road. Road kills I tell ya!
