June Is Almost Over

June 23, 2013

Time flies really fast. Before we all know it, the month of June is almost over and so is our trip visiting my sister’s-in-law. Its alright, Charles is having fun playing with his aunts and in just a few weeks they are going to visit us for the summer. Charles’ 5th birthday is in September and they are going to be there as well on his birthday. With his birthday less than 3 months away he is very excited about it and he wants 2 cakes on his birthday. One is a Brad Keselowski, and the other a Menards with number 27 car on top. 

Well, how’s the weather like in your area? In here, it was raining this morning before we went to church. I have been to the church where my sister‘s-in-law goes, Assembly of God a couple of times but I still like the way Catholics do the Mass at the church every Sunday. Today, to be honest it was such a long day being at the church for me. And I am not the only one that had those feelings. Somebody was using their phones browsing on the web and playing games which is very common nowadays when you are at the church.

It Doesn't Have To Be Perfect

June 17, 2013

Only a few days away, we are going to visit my sister’s-in-law and we are going to attend a wedding. I usually pack our clothes ahead of time but unfortunately I haven’t packed anything yet. I have been sick over the last few days now and I don’t feel like doing any chores at this time. At least though, Doug is here and is off for the summer so he can do some household chores.

Just today, he folded our clothes that’s been sitting in the laundry room for days. The way he folded the clothes are not that neat but it doesn’t have to be perfect. I’m still not used to the way he gives Charles bath so I ended up finishing it for him today. Well, I haven’t done so much lately aside from watching shows on television.

I have been watching the NBA Finals though I don’t really care so much about the Stanley Cup Finals. I think Stanley Cup, US Open, and MLB are boring shows to watch on television. For me, I only appreciate the game once I watch it in person just like Football and NASCAR. To make matters even worse the weather has been really rainy as of late.  

Charles Was Very Thoughtful

June 10, 2013

I got sick over the last few days and I’m glad I am feeling so much better now. My son, Charles was very thoughtful as he kept on checking up on me. I got lots of kisses from him and he always says; I hope you feel better soon. Thank God! With all the problems that we’ve been having it has been really difficult for me. I am the type of person who gets emotional right away and its really hard for me to talk about it. Though we have something to look forward to for this month as we are going to pay-off our BMW X5. 

Aside from paying off the car Doug, is going to buy 4 new tires and change the brake lights as well. Just like every month we have unexpected finances and its very disappointing. Never realized Doug has to pay for tire disposal once they install the new tires in our car. At least though we can get a $50 mail-in-rebate. The other thing that we are looking forward to for this month is visiting Doug’s family. His cousin, Marla, and her fiancĂ© Mike are getting married and we are invited to the wedding. My sister-in-law, Connie is going to sing during the wedding and I’m sure Charles would be so excited to hear his aunt sing. 

I wonder whether Charles would scream, Bravo, Bravo once his aunt Connie is done singing. Visiting my sister’s-in-law is going to be fun. Its around summer and I’m sure the pool will be open by then and Charles loves being in the water. I don’t know how to swim though his aunt Connie can teach Charles how to swim. Well, I haven’t done so many things lately aside from teaching Charles how to write his name. Its quite difficult when I taught Charles as he is definitely left handed when he writes his name.

Tonight Is Going To Be A Great Night

June 02, 2013

I have been watching the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat. As you know the games are tied 3-3 and hopefully the Miami Heat can win the next game tomorrow. It was a very disappointing game last night as most of the Miami Heat players couldn’t even make a free throw shot. I do really like the Miami Heat and if ever the team could make it to the finals it would be very difficult for the team to win. I saw how Tony Parker played for the San Antonio Spurs and he is really good despite being so short. 

Anyway, tonight is going to be a great night for me. It’s the season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Princesses: Long Island on Bravo. Two of these shows are aired at the same time so I have to record it which makes the show even shorter than regular airtime as I skip the commercials. Speaking of commercials is there a commercial that gets onto your nerves? Well, I have a lots and KFC, I ate the bones is one of them. Geez! In my opinion Popeyes Chicken is more delicious than KFC. So better try it for yourself to find out what I’m talking about.

We Had Power Outage

June 01, 2013

With the severe weather we’ve been having over the last few days we have to worry about power outages as well. In almost six years of living here in the U.S., I can count on my fingers how many times we had power off. Just yesterday we had a power outage just in time, I was cooking our dinner. There were foods inside the oven, the stove top, and the microwave. Our washer and dryer are running as well. Thankfully Doug was here and he reported our issue to our electric company, Carroll Electric Cooperative and they responded to our issue right away. About 10 minutes later we got our power back and finished cooking all of our food. 

Anyway, we’re all enjoying that my husband, Doug is out of school. Charles is up earlier than normal and plays more with his dad all the time. Now that my husband is off from work I have been planning to practice driving our car over the weekend. Though we spend our time watching NASCAR Racing every weekend and we don’t want to miss any races. The more we watch NASCAR Sprint Cup the more we get to know all the race car drivers. Unlike the NBA, NFL and other sports teams the players are kind of snobs and don’t want to interact with the fans. 

 have seen Major League Baseball, and College Football at the stadium and the crowd is very different from the racing fans. Which makes me want to watch another NASCAR race again in the future. Doug and I really like it though Charles said; “it is very loud“. But when he saw his favorite race car driver, Brad Keselowski his eyes brightens up and puts a smile on his face.

Knee Walker Rental

Just last year at school one of Doug’s fellow coaches tore his Achilles heel. An Achilles injury is pretty horrible as it makes you very immobile. Coach Johnson though was lucky enough to have a knee walker to use. Knee walkers are much easier to use then crutches and are handy as well. Though the cost of a new knee walker is pretty high luckily you can find a good knee walker rental to get you through.
