Good Deal with Red Box Rental

January 27, 2013

Doug got a good deal today with his monthly free Red Box Rental. He gets one every month but sometimes he does not use it or like a couple of months ago, paid for the movie though he went to get a free one. Today, he got Ted, and watched it tonight on the computer. He said it was not a kids movie so we did not watch it together. Doug really enjoyed it and said I need to watch it. Maybe tomorrow I will watch it while Charles is asleep.

Take Pride For What You Have

January 20, 2013

Doug had a Wrestling Tournament yesterday so he was tired when he got back home. I was about to make homemade pizza for dinner when he decided to eat at Fish City Grill. Of course, he’s still wearing his school shirt and he knew that I really don’t like when he’s wearing his school shirt every time we’re eating out. He has lots of nice T-shirts and its rare for him to wear all of his shirts. Well, we had our dinner at Fish City Grill last night. 

As usual delicious food and excellent service that’s why Doug and I really both like the place and Charles as well for his Mac N‘ Cheese. On our way out, a Sheriff, spoke with Doug that they are helping schools do fundraising and would love to help Doug in raising funds for wrestling. I guess wearing school shirts is a good thing after all. Doug always says; “Take pride for what you have” and you can get connections with other people.

I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore

January 18, 2013

Doug was watching King of the Nerds, on TBS last night when I heard one of the commercials soundtrack, “I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore“. I have always liked the song though I forgot what’s the title of it was. The lyrics just kept repeating over and over in my mind but I couldn’t remember the title of the song and it was driving me nuts. Doug was already asleep and I did not want to wake him up just to ask what’s the title of the song. I know he would know the song title as he created my play lists in the past but when I checked my iTunes on my iPhone it was empty. Geez I realized I don’t have any songs to play that could help me fall asleep plus Mocha Frappe was really bad to drink 1 hour before bedtime. 

“I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore" by Reo Speedwagon, kept me up all night thinking what’s the title of the song and no matter how I tried to close my eyes. It has been a long time that I have never listen to my favorite songs as it makes me sad and cry. But when I listen on Doug’s music that he listens with when we are driving I thought in the past it was insane. Now, I like the type of music that he plays in the car and I have my favorite ones. Today, I looked up the lyrics on Youtube and I was happy when I realized the part of the lyrics that kept on repeating on my mind was the title all along.

What's Not To Love From Dairy Queen?

January 14, 2013

When I was pregnant with Charles I wasn’t too obsessed with eating foods over and over again from one fast food chain. Well, my wonderful husband is very obsessed with getting his foods from Dairy Queen. If I am not mistaken he bought his foods 4 times last week and planned two trips but I said, “NO” to him. What’s not to love from Dairy Queen? Doug loves their shakes Chocolate and Cherry Blizzards, Burgers and Onion Rings. As for me, I don’t really care about Dairy Queen because I don’t have a sweet tooth like my husband and he knows it is not good for him. 

I like cooking specially our dinner as we can get to sit on the table together as a family and it saves us money from dining out. Doug is not a big fan of eating on the table as he is used to of eating on his tray while watching television. Anyway, I am going to get my eyes checked next week and I am getting nervous when I think about my eye checkup. It has been 6 years since I had my eyes checked and I still remember that I made a few mistakes when I read the letters, O and C with one eye covered.

Charles Sleeping Through The Night

Since January 1st my son, Charles has been sleeping in his own bed and sleeping through the night. Being a mom I’m still worried about Charles sleeping by himself though he said he’s a big boy now. I miss having him sleeping in our bed. I have told him to go in our bedroom and lay down with me when he wakes up in the morning. Charles still likes laying down on my shoulder and he can fall right back to sleep. While typing this post he’s still asleep in our bedroom. How I wish I can sleep like my boys.

Oh well, today is Thursday and I am planning to change our bed sheets and do laundry. Later today, Charles and I are going to watch a wrestling match where Doug coaches. For our dinner Doug is planning to go to Dairy Queen again. We just went to Dairy Queen the other night and tonight we are going back again.

Photo Scanning Services

Like many today my husband, Doug and I are 100% digital when it comes to photos and videos. This is great as we can take as many pictures and videos as we want without the cost of printing and buying film. We have folder after folder full of pictures of our life together let alone the thousands of our son, Charles from birth till today. Doug though has often talked of how nice it would be to have digital photos of his family and the thousands of pictures from growing up. 

Luckily for Doug and others like us there are companies out there doing photo scanning services that do what he wants. is one such company that specialized in photo scanning and putting your favorite photos to cd. Having digital images makes it much easier to look at your photos without damaging them. It is also very convent to carry photos on your phone as well. Doug and I both have thousands of photos on our iPhones for example.

Downton Abbey Season 3

January 06, 2013

What a beautiful day out today. I am planning to practice in driving the car today before we go to Walmart to buy our grocery for the week. Charles also wants to drive his jeep as he never got to drive yesterday because of the weather. Later, I have shows to watch on television though I need to record some of the show so I can watch them and skip during commercials. Tonight is the season premiere of Downton Abbey Season 3, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and of course my favorite shows on Bravo. I have never watch Downton Abbey from the previous season so my husband had already added the show into our Netflix que. 

He already taught me how to use his X-box so I can watch Downton Abbey anytime I want. Aside from Downton Abbey, I never have watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, on TLC but my sister’s-in-law love watching the show so I want to record the show tonight. I am also looking forward to watch the new season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. My husband doesn’t like the Kardashians but I just want to watch the show and I think they are all crazy.

Thought It Was Going To be Sunny

It seemed like a very long day today. I thought it was going to be sunny so I can let Charles drive his jeep in the backyard but it was very dark throughout the day. Of course Charles was frustrated as I told him yesterday that we are going to play in the backyard. To keep him busy inside the house he decided to watch Cars 2 movie while doing his World Grand Prix Race in the bedroom. My eyes were hurting again today so I laid in bed all day. Doug was gone for a Wrestling Tournament all day but I felt like he’s gone for a week already. 

Wrestling season keeps him busy everyday and during weekends. How much more when he goes back to school this Monday? I guess I need to get a job when Charles begins attending his preschool rather than staying in the house. This chapter would be very difficult for both Charles and I as we never really away from each other. I don’t know how to handle his first day at school but I already told Doug that I will stay all day where Charles is.

Busy Day Shopping

Charles and I had quite a busy day. We went shopping while Doug watched a movie, Django Unchained. Charles was not interested in our shopping trip as he wants to spend more time at the play area inside and outside of Pinnacle Hills. I got some great deals on clothing at the mall and I already washed them all. Doug and I are very different when it comes to clothing. 

He likes wearing unwashed clothes after buying from the store. Me, I wash my clothes after I buy them from the store before I can wear them. Well, how are you enjoying your vacation so far? For us, my husband will be back to work this Monday and Charles is surely going to miss his dad. These two are like two peas in a pod.

We Really Enjoyed Our Visit

January 01, 2013

It has been a busy week for me. Been doing household chores since we got back home from visiting my husband’s family. We really enjoyed our visit especially Charles. He got lots of Christmas presents from his aunts and uncles and enjoyed all that he got from them. His dad already put some of the toys together though after a couple hours some of them are already separated into pieces. I also took our Christmas Tree down the other night and thought I’ll wait after Three Kings. 

Well, how was your New Year’s Eve last night? For me, nothing really special. It’s very different how we celebrate New Year here in the United States compared to New Years in the Philippines. For our dinner Doug and I made lasagna and we all liked it so much. Anyway, how’s the weather like in your area? In here the weather has been colder and keep on raining. Charles wants to go outside so he can drive his jeep. We also have lots of stuff to do outside while Doug is still off from his Christmas break.
