I am halfway done restoring, cleaning and backing up my site. It was a manual process that consumed my time yesterday. I love this job. It helped me discover more and honed my other skill. I set aside my home chores and now they’re piled up waiting for me. Thanks to my two lovely girls who helped me in my other tasks, but of course I still need some polishing because they’re technically challenged in keeping up the house.
With 2014 drawing near, everyone seems to be busy preparing for new year. This new year, I will not post my resolution but I will do everything to the best that I can. I think I should be more organized and seriously do a garage sale like my buddy who’s now busy selling their old stuff. It’s a good way to declutter to make space for more important things and and save at the same time. She is quite occupied these days and meticulously chose appliances for their new home. I would suggest music studio furniture at music123 for their entertainment room so we have our own area to hang out as we often did. They already have a spacious receiving area but it would be nice to have a secluded place intended for visitors like us, err not visitor anymore as we frequent their house.
I can’t help but dream of the same thing. And I wish I have the same walk-in closet, a big bath tub and steam shower. But I am happy anyway because it would mean frequent meeting in the space I claimed ours, the big terrace for our laugh out loud moments. Now you know where to find me when I’m nowhere in sight. I just hope my friend won’t lock the house should I knock on her door during my unexpected visit.
This is how we do it! We stayed in my friends house overnight along with another friend with 5 kids. Because she emptied the furniture in the house including the bed, we slept in the wooden floor only with mattress pad. It was another bonding time while sleeping. I love it. I love staring at the kids having deep sleep even if it means waking up with feet on your face or push to the corner of the wall when somebody stretch out. LOL. If you have a 20/20 vision, you can do the counting and tell me how many we were in the room. And we’re not included yet here as we’re still about to shrink ourselves in between. They all had a good sleep except me who was disturbed with a little noise coming from the neighborhood who started their early Christmas party at 5am. Yes, that early morning!
Are you done with your Christmas shopping? The season just came rapidly and you just realized you haven’t checked everything on your list yet. You missed a lot including the most important person in your life. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Sit back and relax because the last minute shopping is over but the season is still here. You can now shop in a not so crowded mall and shop online with all your convenience. Sharing extends all through out the year anyway.
Now is the best time to think the gift that will perfectly match your loved one’s wishlist. Find the perfect gift for the right person. For music lover, there are a lot of online stores that offer discounted price. You can give headphones, guitar or reason refills at musicians friend. What about a collection of limited CD edition if your friend is really a music fanatic.
It is not too late yet for Christmas although a few days already have passed. Holidays just flew so fast. And because you’re late, you have to think what’s best that your friends really wish to have.
“A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.”
“We may not be rich with material things but we have the greatest blessings in life, family! It’s always spontaneous for us. We never plan for our holidays but when we’re complete we always go out somewhere and spend time together. We cook, eat, laugh, chat and catch up like we never see each other for many years. It’s always fun! I am the happiest when I’m with them.”
I already blogged them, the band that is now making an online trend, the Reo Brothers. They are survivors of typhoon Haiyan from Tacloban and use their talents to rebuild their own lives. As I watched the video, I can’t help but be inspired to their story and spread the news because I believe that they deserve a break here in the music industry. They decided to move in Manila, armed only with their instruments like jasmine by takamine guitar and their extra ordinary gift of singing. What was left with them back home was nothing but hope and that leads them now to a new career. At first, they were scared of what would be waiting for them in the new city, their new home. But their first performance left the audience in awe and finished with standing ovation. They are now performing in a bar every Tuesday for their regular gigs.
I will support them in anyway I can. This is truly an inspiring story that there is still hope despite that tragic event in life. Survivors rise to the challenge and that no storm can bend them down.
