Ebay Alert

I was scammed!

Yup, and for a cool four thousand. Sob. Sniff.

In as much a si want to forget about it .... it's hard.

Looking back at how our negotations went, i really did not feel any suspicion or bad feelings, i felt good actually. The person i transacted with was very nice and accomodating (too good to be true now that i am processing it.) and to suspect soemthing wrong was really out of the picture.

Now here i am, scammed.

Beware fello online shoppers ... be wary. I let my guard down and now it cost me. Lesson learned. The hard way :(

Bazaar Hunt

I am off to the bazaar in the afternoon!

After many days of pondering if it a wise choice to go on a weekend, i decided, yes! Tee hee! I was thinking today is the last weekend before Christmas so i might be able to score a few good deals sinec most of the people are done with their shopping. I am still looking for some neos overshoes for my papa, and hopefully in this bazaar which boasts of having the most participating booths i might just get lucky. I am arranging that the kids stay with my mama first so i can shop for them as well and they don't have to endure the long lines. I know i will find what i am looking for today .... optimism is working here!

Party Time

We will be going to different parties this comeing days and i have been asked so many time what i will bring for the table. I commit myself to bring ham to my mama's place, fruit salad at my sister's lunch reunion and now for my the school party i have decided to bring icecream since we are just near the school there is no chance for it to melt before we get there. I will be getting the icecream that comes in multiple flavors in one tub. It is just a toss up on the chocolate strawberry combination or the mocha mango duo. I will check my budget, and if it permits me to have both of them o will bring them both so i will be seeing colorful lips from happy school kids. Hahaha!

Project Frenzy

My girls are super busy with their year end projects. They are both not doing computer time today as they are both seriously cross stitching to make the deadline to get the highest grade possible. Tomoorow is the deadline if you want a grade of 95, and if you pass it on Tuesday you can only get a high grade of 93 and submit on Wednesday for a possible grade of 90.

The race is on!

Sensitive Issue

My friend and i were talking candidly yesterday when she sort of opened up that her husband and her are having a bit help in the bedroom department. I made sure my kids were not within hearing range, tee hee! We were whispering a bit while giggling like teenagers as we swapped married life stories. She even told me that they sometimes make use of some male enhancement cream at one point. I did not find anything offensive about it since we were good friends who were talking about normal things. I guess it is how you look at it that somethimes it comes off in a different light when in truth this just a fact of life and it can happen to anyone in a healthy and loving relationship.

Full Weekend

It will be another busy weekend ... and i love it!

The kids will be busy with me too. I scheduled a swimming day for them tomorrow and whats special about it is that they don't know it yet. The magic of them not knowing it is i don't hear Vin asking me 24/7 how many more days, hours and even minutes before D day.

I will just savor the silence and mostly the happy and suprised faces when i tell them minutes before ... hahaha!

Tempting

I am thinking of applying for a credit card next year. I have been looking at a few application forms that i have been handed at the mall yesterday. It looks inviting and i already have a few things i want to buy using it, hahah! Will study it and check on the interest rates, payment schemes and maybe i will take the plunge and finally get my very own express pass to my must haves and wants! Yey!

I will have to seriously sit down on this and think which is the best way to go before i seriously (lol!) think of what i will buy! So excited!


Garage Treasure

When we were at the garage sale and people were dwindling i was able to go around the different booths and was able to get a sturdy and much needed door knob to replace the one in the kids room that i have been meaning to do but have not had the time to shop for one. Garage sales are really a haven for knick knacks that you usuallydon't find in malls and yet when you see it you actually need it. I was able to get a few self-help books from another seller and a cute bag from another one. I love browsing through stuff and best of all they were dirt cheap. Love it!

Smiling Sellers

My kids had a great time helping me out during our very first venture as sellers, tee hee! They were so excited to the point that if someone was just looking at the things they would hand me an empty plastic bag as if the person is already buying the item .. hahah!

They were very attentive and excited to help in any way they can. Bea on the other hand put on some music in our booth with her as she would say it in French, her portables, which means laptop. She is starting to like the Franch language and have been using a few words here and there ... good thing i took French classes as my foreign language in college, merci .. tee hee!





Garage Sale Mania

Just finished a very successful first time to participate in a garage sale last weekend. It was fun and tiring at the same time. I was able to earn from it and at the same time declutter! I have always wanted to let go of some of my things that we do not have a need for but do not have the heart to sell or give it away. Finally, i was able to do it! Yey me! Hahaha!

I could not believe that i could handle selling for an entire day that here i am fixing my things again for another garage sale event. Yup, you read it right! I will be joining a bazaar cum garage sale tomorrow. This was sort of spur of a moment decision, because i just found out yesterday that a weekend bazaar has been going on here in our village during weekends, so i made my inquiries and before i knew it i was signing up for a booth ... hahaha!

It will be another busy day tomorrow, so i have to finish up myh work on the net searching for recipes that i can teach my students and read on managed hosting for Christian. I love the internet and the access for everything we need to know at your fingertips.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a good day .... don't need the rain to dampen the sale spirit.

Rooftop Clean Up

Had the much needed time to tidy up our rooftop attic and have a chance to open the boxes that has been in storage for some time. I bought new boxes to replace the ones that we have so this time we only keep the ones we really have a need for and the others stuff that we have been keeping for some time that we actually do not need ... finally dispose it. It is hard to sort through things but i must really set my mind to the task and finish it before the week ends. I was able to see my wedding dress again and memories flooded in (hahaha!) love my dress! I remember how i was the one who designed my bridesmaid dresses to suit their personalities, and they loved it too. Those were the kind that they can still wear even after my wedding, so no wasted dress. I loved the wedding preparations, i was never harassed ... smooth sailing all through the way. I loved that day!
