Monday Busyness

I always drag myself to go to work on a Monday. I don't know why maybe it is the first day at work. It nice to stay home for the weekend but I need to work too. I went to work today earlier than my scheduled shift about half hour early. My goal was to go there like to 2 hrs before my shift to do some over time but it didn't happen. I need to work more hours especially it is almost Christmas and with the economic situation right now. I need to save for the coming rainy days.
It was very busy at work today. It was from call after call people are calling in to make their loan payments over the phone. My throat hurts and I was trying to catch my breath. Some customers are nice some are upset about no receiving their statements. What can I do statements are sent out every month; I can't control the mail or I can't control it also if the statements were mistaken as junk mail. To satisfy them all I can do is negotiate to waive their past due fees and to make payment.
I went online to grab some Opps at 3P's tonight but I didn't have the luck it just turned out gray :(. It has been so hard to grab those opportunities now and especially google just dump my pr from 3 to 0. I hope I can get it back but I don't know when and how. Well, I think I'll just have to keep my eyes open and wait for other opportunities to come.
I hope I can be there for work early tomorrow too.

Household Chores on Saturday

Saturday is my day to be domesticated. It is a day for my laundry, cleaning the house and all other stuff that needs to be done at home. I got up late this morning for I felt so tired. Todd was already doing the front breaks of his car. I sat with him outside while he was doing the front breaks and chat for a bit. It was already almost noon that I started my laundry doing the towels, jeans, and shirts and lastly all the whites. While doing my laundry we went to Wal-mart to pick up some groceries. The store was so crowded I didn't know its the start of their anniversary celebration there deals too. We just got what we need and got some stuff that were on sale.
After we got home for groceries, we went to Emerald Chinese Buffet for dinner. OMG food was great they had my favorite calamare. I still have clothes to fold now and some more loads to do.
We missed this year's Grape and Wine Parade. I saw it before and Todd said the floats were budget so its not worth it going again this year.
Hope you had a good Saturday.

Tactical Pants at Police Gear

Cold season is fast approaching we need to dress warm enough. Todd needs new set of jeans that can be use for work and for winter season. As I was surfing on the net glad that I have found 5.11 Tactical Pants at a reasonable price and stylish jeans. Visit

Time Flies

The week have gone so fast in just a wink of an eye it was already Friday. It has been a month yesterday that my Mama have died and have left us her children. I am moving on with her lost. I am just glad our parents left us that we are already old enough to look for ourselves. I would be hard if they left us while we were still young. I still have sleepless nights and cry over her lost. I missed her voice, her laughter over the phone, and especially her cooking. I have been dreaming of her that she came back to life but it was just a dream. I could have turned back the time I wish I could have spend time on her last moments alive. I think my coming over to Canada has reasons to for her own good also. I wouldn't have been able to help in all her medical expenses I didn't left. We would still be able to survive with my income in the Phils but it will be very hard to tackle all her medical bills. Having a dialysis in the Philippines would cost you a fortune. Mama was with it for almost 3 years but no matter what were the expenses as long as it has extended and made her life comfortable. I know at the very end on the last four days she was alive as what would my sister would say it was a painful battle for her. Mama was a very religious person her faith has kept her strong. I know that right now she is happy together with my Papa in the safe hands of our forgiving God.
We love you both Ma and Pa; and will be forever thankful for making us what we are now. Both of you will always be in our hearts everywhere we go into this world.
Hope to see you soon as you meet us in heaven when our time comes to return back to our Creator.

Rare OPP's

Lately it has been very hard to get OPP's with 3P's. As I log in I saw it was still white and I try to grab it but all of a sudden it turned into gray sigh :(. I think a lot of people are into blogging now. I'll just give it to others they probably need it more than I do. I better luck next time. Just keep my eyes open for all those OPP'S.

Happy Sunday!

Glad to be in the house of the Lord today. I got up early enough this morning to catch the mass at Holy Rosary Church. There are only a few schedule of masses here on Sundays; only 3 in total mass on a Sunday.
Today's gospel from Matthew 20: 1-16 "For the kingdom of heaven is like...." Jesus is showing his disciples the contradictions between the ways of the world and the ways of the kingdom. Today's reflection is all about how universally generous He is and does not give us what we deserve, but rather what Love chooses to give. He is a loving and a forgiving God.
Have a blessed Sunday to all.

Physical and Emotional Pain

After Mama's funeral I had a few days before my flight back to Canada. I spent my remaining days bonding with my sisters; my other two sisters already went home on the 7th of Sept. The day before my flight back my sister brought lechon (roasted pig) from CNT (one of the good lechon makers in Cebu). The lechon was no longer hot when my sister got home. I voluntered to re heat it in the oven. The oven has not been used for a long time; since I left Cebu. I wanted to try it if it will still work. I didn't use my common sense when I lighted the oven; I could have rolled a piece of paper and use it to light the oven instead of just using the matchstick. I turned the oven switch too much that a lot of gas kick in when i lighted it. It caught fire on my right hand. When you get burn you don't feel the pain right away, I was very calm telling my sister that I got burned not feeling the pain right away. After a few seconds I started to feel the pain and soreness on my fingers, I felt like they were all chopped. I let water run to my fingers and put ice on it. I can tolerate pain but with the burns I got it was very painful. When my sister saw it she said I had 2nd degree burns, it formed blisters right away. Immediately, she told my other sister to go the drugstore and buy some cream for burns. I took pain reliever and it didn't take effect right away. I was in doubt whether to go to the hospital waiting for the pain reliever to kick in but it took so long that I decided to go the hospital. I was also worried I might not be allowed to board the plane seeing my fingers with open wound.
We decided to go the hospital just to get the certificate and the doctor gave me some antibiotics as well for faster healing and for the infection. I am glad they didn't give me any hassle boarding probably they didn't notice it also.
It took awhile to heal. Yesterday the burned skin starts to peel off and leaving fresh scars on it. Aloe vera is a great help too it cools it down. I didn't even have the chance to eat the lechon.
It wasn't a good time to be back home; it seems like I was doubly hurt both physically and emotionally. With Mom's passing I am still on the denial stage right now and hoping the wounds in my heart will heal in time and be able to accept the reality that she is now gone.

Cruising w/ Delilah @ 96.1

Last night while driving on my way home after work I'd love to listen to 96.1 were the DJ is Delilah. Listening to her voice makes me feel better after a hard day at work. Her voice is very soothing and it can help me unwind. It gives me a break from listening to all the political problems in the world.
One of her callers last night had a very sad story of her child. She has been married for eight years and never had a child so they decided to go on with fertility test. Luckily she got pregrant but sad to say on her 36 weeks she gave birth but the baby died upon birth. She doesn't know what was the cause; I feel sad listening to her story. I find it very unfair on her part not even able to hold her baby on her arms. She was crying on the phone while she shares her story. I admire her courage and her trust in the Lord. She said the child is not meant for them though it hurts her. She now has an angel watching over her and her family. I just forgot the title of the song that Delilah played for her and her baby Georgia.
I hope she will find happiness and contentment with her life right now. May she be blessed with another child from God soon.

Back to Work

It was my first day to be back to work after my bereavement leave. I didn't feel like going back to work after being off for 15 days. I guess the feeling is normal especially it was also Monday. There were a few changes and updates at work, which my Manager gladly showed it to me. Every one was happy to see me back, some didn't know that I was away.
It was very busy at work the volumes of inbound call was very high. People were calling in to make their payments over the phone. Oh boy, I was exhausted on my first day to be back to work. I had a short briefing of the updates and I started to take calls right away. Good thing I its all in my memory.
After the storm that comes in life, the sun is always there to shine. Life goes on no matter what.

Relaxing Sunday

Happy Sunday to all. Hope you had a relaxing Sunday. Glad that hurricane Ike is over we had rains and it was gloomy outside. We wanted to go to Niagara Falls for a walk but our neighbor said the storm will hit at 4 o'clock in the afternoon but it never did. Todd and I decided to go to Wal-Mart to look around for a connector wire for the trailer hitch. We didnt find it at Wal-Mart but we got it a Canadian Tire. We went for a short joy ride and headed back home.
Nothing special we did at home just relaxing watching tv and I was folding my laundry. We both have to go back to work after being off from work for three weeks. I know it will be hard to be back on the first day but we need to work. Life goes on after the storm.
Hope you have a good Sunday guys.

Page Rank Goes Down

When my page rank went to 3 I didn't even know about it. It was my friend that told me that my rank was at level 3. I was happy to know about it. I went home to the Phils for 15 days to attend my Mother's funeral. After I got back from the Philippines I was just surprise to see my page rank dropped from rank 3 to 0. I was disappointed knowing the page rank dropped. It would mean less opps for me to take. I don't understand why they have to dropped my page rank when in fact my site doesn't have a lot of paid blogging. Anyway better luck next time. I hope I can gain back my page rank soon.
Maybe I was just hit by the black wind that google throw on my site dropping my page rank, lol.

Home Sweet Home

After 21 hrs of flying in the air I finally arrived to Canada my home. I was in the Philippines for 15 days for Mama's wake and burial. It was nice to see my family again but at the same time sad to be there to face the reality that Mama is now gone. The flight coming back was very long I had to wait for 6 hours in Atlanta, GA for my flight to Buffalo, NY. It wasn't the right timing to go back on 9-11 the airport security was very tight. I am very lucky they didn't open my luggage at the port of entry. They did open my sister's luggage and throw some of the canned goods she had in her luggage. Todd met me at the airport.
My leggs were all swollen from the long trip and just sitting on the plane. My left ear hurt so bad from the pressure especially that I had a runny nose until now it still bothers me. I still don't know when will be the next time I will be able to come for a visit to the Phils.

Away from Bloging

It has been a long time I have not make a new post. I have been away; I am right here in the Philippines to attend my mother's wake. It sad to be back home with the situation right now, its kinda a mix emotions. I got to meet my family again but it will be my last time to see mom. It was painful seeing my Mama lying in her casket lifeless.

I wish I can turn back the time and be back home with Mama alive and kicking but she was called by our Creator. I know Mama is now happy with Papa and with our Almighty God, no more pain for her.

Three more days and Mama will be laid to her final resting place. I love you Ma and you will be sadly miss by all of us.
