Yearly Archives: 2009

I’m thankful for…

Life is too short to grumble or complain about the little hitch that we experienced last year (2009). These obstacles have somehow made us stronger to face life’s uncertainties. I have my own share of ups and downs, but they never stop me from pursuing the things that made me happy.

Looking back, here are some of the things that I’m thankful for.

I have a family who I love so dearly and depend on in some trying moments. I have a husband who is loving, understanding and responsible. He’s a resourceful person too. I have two obedient and smart kids. We live a simple life, but we are abundant in love and respect for one another. We never let big and small misunderstanding ruin all our good times together. That’s our family motto by the way.

I’m thankful that our household and the extended family are in the pink of health. The only serious ailment I’ve attended to so far was flu and the common cough and cold.

The past year was an exciting one for me too. I have learned to write a blog and meet close to a hundred mommy bloggers along the way. Most of them are stay at home mom like me. A handful is now my ‘kumares’ (Marce Club).

I’m also excited to share that I was able to earn a little from blogging . It’s not that much but at least hubby is happy that his wifey knows pratical resources to help us get by.

I’m also thankful that I still have more time to maintain three blogs (this site, Yam’s Files and Pen, paper, pan) despite my being busy with endless workload at home. I’m thankful for friends¬†Marce Pehpot for the header and footer layout of my new blog;¬†Marce Kaye for the intricate code; and Mylene also for the technical stuff she’s teaching me.

I’m thankful that my mother is still strong despite her age; and for my sister that she was able to find a good job abroad; my maternal aunt who is recuperating from cancer; and my cousin who finally tie the knot this year.

I’m also thankful for all the things that I failed to remember, but somehow made an impact on my life. Hopefully next year life will be kind to all of us that all the wishes of our heart will come true.

Lastly, I’m thankful for Mylene of Online Mommy’s Corner for coming up with this wonderful contest. Head on to her site to see what’s in store for the lucky winners.

Thanksgiving Contest

Dream come true

Hubby got me a new camera and a new laptop as late Christmas present. Both electronic gadgets mean a lot to my blogging activity. You know how important quality photos are in a blog post. I’ve been using my camera cellphone for months now and you know the quality of images cellphone camera produces. The idea of buying a second-hand laptop came when we received our monthly electric bill last month. We are figuring out how to minimize power consumption at home. According to hubby laptop consumes less power compared to a desktop. We’ll see about that.

Here’s our digital camera.

Here’s our laptop.

He got the items via Tipidpc.com. They are not brand new, but it’s okay with us. Anyway, that’s what our budget can afford for now.
