Ber-ry Close

Tomorrow marks the start of the "BER" months.

Yipee!

Just the sound of the month ending with a "ber" makes me happy end excited. So many things to look forward to actually.

First on the list is Sam's 11th birthday on SeptemBER 22! I have her gift ready since July, talk about planning ahead ... it is kinda costly so i made sure to buy it while i still had money for it, hehehe!

Next is Halloween that my kiddies love, no matter that my girls are entering their tweens .. they still love to dress up!

December of course ... not only is it the happiest month of the year but it has the longest holidays ... hahahah!

I am so excited ... BER starts tomorrow!

Promising

My sister-in-law called me yesterday and was letting me know of the present vacancies they have in their office. She is really pushing that we work in a same office, no worries about having the same surname because she is married to my brother and of course i changed my maiden name to my married name so we would seem not related at all. There are a lot of companies who do not allow relatives to work together to make sure that there will be no hanky panky since we are all blood related.

She told me there are interesting openings at the Front Desk department, like Help Desk Specialist Jobs Receptionists and even Executive Assistants.

I am actually tinkering on the idea, but of course i can't just abandon my teaching and leave the students mid year ... hehehe! It just nice to think about the different promises one career can take you.

I love teaching, but it is really hard work. lol!

Vacay

Had a four day holiday!

I feel so recharged ... it was just four days but it came at the most best time. We just finished exams and i got my kids report cards as well.

Had a great time unwinding and relaxing with the family.

It was just bliss.

Shopping Police

Who is your shopping police?

Some people it could be their moms ... husbands ... but for me it has got to be the barcode scanner, hehehe!

I am eyeing on an item then i can't decide from which of the two kinds i like and i get my shopping best friend to decide for me. I just point and shoot and suddenly a decision is made, tee hee!

I wish i could have my own though and not rely on the shop's scanners, that way i can have one handy in my purse when the need arises.

I love shopping ... but i love keeping things in check ... reality check!

1st Quarter

1st quarter is officially over today.

We wrapped up the last day of exams this morning and i have in my possession tons of text papers to check. I can't believe it took me hours to make a test and only minutes for the kids to answer and pass it ... hahaha!

I looked at some of the answers and happy that they might just ace the exams, and that makes me one fulfilled teacher. Yey!

Happy Errand

One of the favorite errands my kids and i like to do is to do the groceries. There is actually a schedule on who gets to push the cart first and who will be in charge of getting the groceries from the shelves. They love checking the prices on the cordless barcode scanner that is around the supermarket to help the shoppers keep to their budget. Tee hee!

Vin would run to it and scan all the groceries and run back to me to give me a full report on how much each item costs. They love the idea that i actually have a reaction everytime they say the price considering that they all scanned thin and thick black lines. I always want to stick to our budget but it still shoots up as soon as we pass the ice cream and snack aisles. Hahaha!

It is a weekend again, and that means grocery shopping is next!

Natal Day

This is it!

I am now officially 42 years old!

I can hardly believe it, sounds super old ... hahaha!

Christian has been telling me if i want anything for my birthday. Truthfully, i did not have anything in mind when he asked me last night. I actually don't need anything for myself. I am content with what i have actually.

But looking around the house, the kitchen to be specific .... i guess i would appreciate some top of the line electric grills since our family jusy loves grilled food. This is one appliance that i have more use of rather than the microwave.

I wonder what i will get ... the day is still not over :)
