There are only three weeks left of school and then I’ll be taking my much needed break!  I”m really looking forward to it and I’m making a list of all the things I want to do over the break.  I just hope I can do some, if not all of them. 🙂

  1. Practice driving!
  2. Blog everday.
  3. Read my pocketbooks.
  4. Lagaw with the kids.
  5. Do a general house cleaning.
  6. Spend a day or two with hubby – without the kids.
  7. Work on the kids’ scrapbook/babybook.
  8. Catch up with old friends.
  9. Sleep.
  10. Sleep.

Hubby has been tinkering with the digicam and came out with these photos. 



These flowers are all found in our front yard.  He’s just starting to discover the many features of our digicam and he’s been trying these out on still life.  Hopefully he’ll be able to take better pictures of the kids.  And maybe I can learn how to take better pictures, too. 🙂

I got this from Toni

I love feel good movies! What's the point in watching a movie if it won't make you feel good? 🙂

No, not me!  But our dog, Amber.  She's a one and a half year old Golden Retriever.  We're trying to impregnate her (sorry, couldn't get more specific than this).  Last Saturday and yesterday, we brought her to a stud.  It was a successful meeting, or rather, mating.  Successful in the sense na na-consummate, but as to the impregnation, we still have to wait and see.  Sana nga mabuo. 

I'm not really into dogs as my hubby is, but this time I have a vested interest.  He promised to give me the proceeds of the sale of the puppies.  🙂  So, I have to be extra nice to Amber and cater to her every whim – and hope that she give birth to many puppies!

Anybody interested? P12T per puppy, with papers. 🙂 

Oh, and by the way, the stud (his name is Milo) is a grand champion and Amber comes from a good lineage, too.  I could show you her birth certificate and family tree.

Here's something I got from Lenti, a friend from UP. 

You are UP because you can think and speak for yourselves, by your own wits and on your own two feet, and you can do so no matter what the rest of the people in the room may be thinking. 

You are UP because no one can tell you to shut up, if you have something sensible and vital to say.

You are UP because you dread not the poverty of material comforts but the poverty of the mind.

And you are UP because you care about something as abstract and sometimes as treacherous as the idea of "nation," even if it kills you.

Sometimes, long after UP, we forget these things and become just like everybody else; I certainly have.  Even so, I suspect that that forgetfulness is laced with guilt – the guilt of knowing that you were, and could yet become, somebody better.  And you cannot even arge that you did not know, because today, I just told you so.

– excerpt from Jose Dalisay's speech

When I was in high school, our guidance counselor gave this poem to me during a recollection.  I was 15 years old and in search of my own identity.  I went to an exclusive school for girls and most of my classmates belonged to families in the upper echelons of society.  I come from a middle-class family and my parents were not hacienderos.  So you could imagine the struggle I went through to belong.  I didn't have new clothes always and I couldn't buy the latest Tretorn or K-Swiss or Giordano shirt. 

This poem helped me to realize that I don't have to pretend to be someone I'm not, and that it's okay to let people know who I really am. 


To laugh is to risk appearing the fool

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental

To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self

To place your ideas, your dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss

To love is to risk not being loved in return

To hope is to risk despair

To try is to risk failure

But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow.

But they cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.

Chained by their certitudes, they are slaves.

They have forfeited their freedom –

Only a person who risks is free!

Got this from Jher.

I’ve been getting errors from time to time when I log on to WordPress and I’ve been thinking about moving to Blogger.  Last week, I was so pissed with wordpress that I created a new blog.  I found out that, unlike in WordPress, I can change the template of my Blogger blog.  I’m tinkering with my new template and it’s not quite finished yet.  I tried to insert a shoutbox, but it end’s up in a spot where I don’t want it.  I don’t know anything about html programming so I’m just tinkering with it.  Any suggestions? 

When my Blogger blog starts to look the way I want it, then I’ll move out of WordPress.  Till then, I’m sticking with this url – and putting up with the server problems of WordPress.  Grrrr! >(

Here are photos of my Nike trainers.  The resolution is not so good because I used my hubby’s phone lang.  My camera is still being repaired.




My hubby thinks I’m crazy, taking pictures of my shoes! Haha! When I told him it was for my blog, he thinks I’ve gone totally nuts.  Well, this is fun for me.  He has his pets and I have my blog. hehe 🙂  To each his own…
