Working boots

It was my daddy's birthday last Monday, and it was only today that I was able to get a gift for him. Well, he told me not to bother getting him a gift, as my kids are his treasures now. But still, I feel like I should give him something on his very special day. I bought him this boots from caterpillar that is so perfect for his work especially during the cold weather.

I am expecting it to be shipped at his place by Friday. He will surely love this , as I know that he is in this type of shoes. He actually has one in a different color.

She's getting taller

Many people noticed that my little girl is growing taller. She actually looked slimmer now, but her weight did not drop at all. Pediatrician said that she grew a few inches, that's why. Her everyday activities also contributes to her figure now. She is one active girl, I'm telling you. I initially thought that she won't grow that tall, but I decided to learn more and read about kids and their growth from 1 year old and beyond. Now I know that it is natural to lose some weight since she is in her growing years. But of course, her constant monitoring with her pedia would always be there, same thing when I had his Kuya.

happy with their new toys

I was so busy reading about colon cleanse articles online when I received the package containing some toys for the kids. It was from my mom , and she certainly knows what the kids want this time! Joaqui loves to play with tools, while Dom is into kitchen/ tea sets. They are at their happiest every time they will play, and that brings happiness to my mom and dad. Oh how we miss them already. I really hope that they will come here again this year. I can't help but plan another trip when they arrive. The kids miss their grand parents too, that my son would always ask me if they are coming home soon. Oh how I wish everything is that easy !

keep toys organized

I found these pieces at Ikea online, and sadly it is not available for online orders so I have to tell my mom to get a few pieces for the kids. I've been looking for colorful toy bins for them, and this is perfect so as it's price! Who wouldn't love what Ikea offers.

I do hope they will have more items available for online ordering, and please, let Paypal be a mode of payment hahaha

The Benefits of Electric Underfloor Heating

The green revolution has encouraged many people to seek energy efficient ways to heat their homes. Just because they are trying to save the planet, however, does not mean that they have to give up comfort. In fact, electric underfloor heating has revealed itself as a green alternative to central air heating that also offers luxurious benefits. With these heating systems, it's hard to go wrong.

A cold floor makes it hard to get out of bed on early winter mornings, especially when the sunrise is still more than an hour away. Having heaters installed in your floor makes those early mornings considerably easier. You don't even have to worry about putting on slippers. These heaters will keep the floor warm regardless of whether your flooring surfaces are made of stone, wood, tiles, or other materials. When the heat comes right up through the floor, you never have to worry about cold feet.

Since these systems are electric, they don't rely on natural gas to heat your home. This makes them more environmentally friendly. Having a source of heat in your floor also creates energy saving benefits by making use of warm air's natural tendency to rise up. Your underfloor heating systems won't even need fans to blow warm air into your rooms. Instead, you get natural heating without wasting energy.

People who own small apartments or rooms will find that electric underfloor heaters allow them to save space as well as energy. Radiators take up a lot of room and make it difficult to fit furniture along the walls. Even heating vents can take up a lot of space. You have to keep a path clear for the warm air to get into the room. That means moving tables, chairs, couches, and entertainment centers to other parts of the room.

Helping Your Man Survive Erectile Dysfunction

It's one of the most difficult things for a man and a woman to cope with in their relationship, but many couples have to deal with the effects of erectile dysfunction, or ED, every day. Erectile dysfunction can cause strain, pain, and can even end some relationships. If ED is something that you're confronting with your partner, it's important to know how to help the man you love get through and beyond the diagnosis of ED.

Encourage your guy to seek medical treatment and if needed, show him your support by going with him to the pharmacy to buy Levitra, Cialis, or Viagra. You should agree on treatment options and be open to his ideas regarding medications. Let him know that you're there for him by reminding him there are over 30 million men in the U.S. with ED; he's definitely not alone. Men may also feel like they are no longer "real men" or masculine so, it's important that he knows that you're still attracted to him. Also, support him when he's striving to make changes to his lifestyle like dieting, exercising, or quitting cigarettes. You can partner up with him at the gym and compete to see who loses more weight. Stay positive and focus on helping him. Leave the blame game behind. Don't pressure him in the bedroom either, but use this time to experiment in other ways to pleasure one another.

Remember, this is no one's fault. Don't blame or beat up yourself. Badgering him about why this happened will do nothing but make him angry or cause him to withdraw. It's really important to keep touching, keep talking, and above all, keep the lines of communication open. He's probably feeling low enough without a brow beating, so stay peppy, perky, and be his number one cheerleader.

my breakfast

I'm feeling a little hungry now. What's up for breakfast? Try to take this quiz.. its' fun !

You Are Cereal

Playful and lighthearted, breakfast is likely your favorite meal of the day.

(In fact, you're probably the type who sneaks cereal as a midnight snack.)

Your culinary skills are probably a bit lacking... and you are a sucker for junk food.

Some people accuse you of eating like a kid, but you prefer to think of yourself as low maintenance.

Understanding Position in Texas Holdem

The tables won't always look the same. They're a lot classier in the Bellagio than they are in your neighbor's club house. Sometimes the tables you play poker on aren't even real, with virtual casinos like Caesars Online becoming more and more popular. However, the important thing about the table isn't how it looks. It's how it behaves. Believe it or not, the way your table behaves will change constantly throughout the night. The reason for this is what's referred to as position.

There are three categories of position that you can be in, and these positions are all in reference to how close you are to the dealer button and in what direction. The plays you can make are vastly different from position to position, and moves that would be downright idiotic in early position are brilliant in late position.

Late position is being "on the button" (the dealer button is in front of you) or being in one of the two seats to the right of the dealer button. Early position is small blind, big blind, and the position to the left of big blind (the player who will be big blind next round). The four additional players at the table are all in "mid" position.

The most basic explanation is that you can take a lot more risks in late position. The reason for this is that you have already seen the actions taken by most players (depending on your position, you have seen five to seven players make their choice). Since you know whether or not these players are going to fold, call, or raise, you can effectively eliminate risk that would otherwise be a part of a call or raise that you want to make. By the same token, those in early position are left blind and are in greater risk, so caution is wise.

Coverage of an Automotive Insurance

An automotive insurance does not only cover road collisions (collision coverage), but also covers other events involving the vehicle of the insured, such as theft, weather, fire, vandalism etc. This kind of coverage is called comprehensive coverage. Both types of coverage are subject to a deductible, which is the amount you will have to pay in case of an accident, despite holding an insurance policy that covers that accident.

Roadside Assistance Coverage

Alternatively known as vehicle towing coverage, this type of coverage takes care of non-accident related tows such those resulting from vehicle breakdown, flat tire or gas leak. This is a new policy of insurance companies. Earlier they used to cover tows related to accidents only.

Personal Items
Insurance policies usually do not cover personal items damaged in accidents. Personal items mean anything that the occupants of the vehicle are carrying and that are not attached to the vehicle. Unless they are attached to the vehicle, they are covered by homeowner's policies. Some insurance policies however provide coverage for GPS devices, even those that are not attached to the vehicle, provided they are meant to be used in a vehicle.

Online Purchase
The Internet has brought about many new changes in the process of purchasing automobile insurance, particularly in the United States of America. It has made the process of buying an automobile insurance easy and simple. People now prefer to get quotes of prices before they purchase an automobile insurance. They even buy insurance online. Among the benefits of buying insurance online, the most significant is that potential consumers are now able to compare various car insurance providers, coverage types and policies before buying, and select the one that suits them the most or has the best features or the lowest price. This makes for more consumer satisfaction, which in turn leads to better business.

coffee please !

You Are a Zippy Iced Coffee

You are energetic, modern, and a total risk taker.

You treat coffee as a quick way to get caffeine, and you're not about to slow down for a warm cup of it.

Of all the coffee drinkers, you are the most experimental. You have no problem trying out a new coffee shop or flavor.

You love caffeine, but you don't need it. You have enough get up and go on your own.

Silver Investments: A Secure Investment in an Unsure Economy

When economic times are difficult, more Americans search for a secure investment. While it's a good idea to pay off debt and save cash, many worry that if they leave all of their money in the bank, they'll lose it in the event of a bank failure. If you fear this type of worst case scenario, it may be wise to consider silver investments.

At one time, every dollar in the U.S. Treasury was backed up by an equal amount of silver. The dollar was originally called a silver certificate, and those spending it knew that their cash was backed up by precious metal in the U.S. Treasury. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. In fact, in the event of an economic disaster, money actually wouldn't be worth the paper it's been printed on.

Luckily, there's something you can do to develop a back up plan. In an economic crisis, precious metals are likely to hold their value. By skipping the "middle man" and and purchasing silver or gold on your own, you can guarantee that you'll have money available to you if things go sour. You can either purchase silver and keep it in your home in the form of jewelry or coins, or you can purchase sliver through an investment program. Many people prefer to do a little of both, keeping valuables on hand in case they need them, while securing other stashes of money away from their home to access in an emergency.

If you're worried about the future and would like to secure your economic status, you might consider purchasing silver or gold investments a bit at a time. This allows you to invest in something tangible; you can rest easy knowing that your money is backed up with something that will serve you well in a pinch.

Above Ground Swimming Pool Installation Tips

Installing your own above ground swimming pool is a relatively simply process. Most people find that they can set up their pool and have it fully operational within a few days, often in a weekend. However, there are a few tips to keep in mind when installing your pool.

Landscape First

Before setting up your pool, it's important to make sure that the ground you'll be using is flat and level. This will impact how your pool sits. You can choose to do this on your own, or you can hire professional landscapers to prepare the pool site and then install the pool yourself. Doing it yourself might save money, but hiring professionals might save time.

Install the Filter Carefully

For the best results, your filter will need to be upright at all times. If you have a square or rectangular pool, the best way to keep the filter upright is to install the filter in a corner. This gives it two surfaces to brace against and helps keep it in the optimal position.

Keep Patch Kits Handy

If your pool is damaged, acting quickly will help minimize the problem. The best way to ensure a fast repair is to keep patch kits and other necessary supplies on hand. This can save you a trip to the store in a pinch, and will help reduce the stress of having a problem with your pool.

Have the Necessary Chemicals

When you purchase your pool, it may also be wise to purchase enough pool chemicals to last for several months. You'll need to use them regularly, and you won't always want to make a trip to the store before you work on cleaning or maintaining your pool. Keep pool supplies on hand but locked up away from children and pets. A shed or garage is often a good place to store these supplies.

Arts and crafts Class this summer

He is so proud to show off his 1st masterpiece from their class. I wasn't able to go inside the room to take his pictures so I made him pose for the camera when we had our breakfast at McDonalds. Each embellishment has their own name, and I love how he told me that Mommy, daddy and dominique were the ones in the other side.

I take him to class three times a week and I stay there and wait for him for one hour. Last Friday, after I dropped him off, I went around the area and I was happy to see some food establishments and stalls that sells cheap prices. I was able to get door mats at 25 pesos each! I am looking forward to some shopping moments while I wait for his classes to finish .

wish .

Last week, I celebrated my birthday and mother's day too. The husband gave me a new cellphone since my phone suddenly got busted. He also got me a new bag that I have been dreaming lately. There's no way I can ask for another gift, so I am saving up my money for the remaining item in my wishlist, and that is a notebook computer. I am on the go starting this june and I will be out of the house until lunch time, so I want to make my waiting time productive by working on my online tasks. My mom has a netbook and I tried it out the last time we travelled together! It is just perfect! Handy, compact and efficient. The battery life is unbelievable too. I need to use my shopping powers so I can find the best deals soon!

Basketball crazy

My little girl was inspired by his big brother to play basketball. Last Monday, we went to the mall for my simple birthday celebration. We spent a good 1 hour at Timezone where my kids had a grand time playing their fave games. I even bumped into my friend who was also with her family that time . She noticed that I really lost weight and asked me if i am taking a top diet pill. Of course, I said no. My kids are my daily exercise. It is certainly not a joke to take care of 2 kids! But I have to say that my twice a week workout helped a lot too! I jsu hope that my little girl will also shed a few pounds before she turns 3 years old.

no to eczema

Last year, we discovered that my son has an allergic reaction with fishes. He loves eating fish even before, so I find it weird that it is only lately that he developed the allergies. At first we thought it was eczema. His face has swollen red patches, tha I truly feel sad seeing him that way . We went to the hospital's emergency room to treat him right away as I fear that he will have a hard time to breath with the allregies. He was given a few medicines then , but after a while the allergies came back. That was the time that we consulted a pediatric - allergologist. A skin test was performed, and there, he's allergic to fish. I am grateful he doesn't have eczema. He just needs to stay away from eating fish for now. Hopefully he can outgrow this allergy.

Too busy

May is truly one of my favorite. Aside from being my birthday month, it is also our town fiesta and family outings are all lined up! My offline life is busy once more. I sleep late as I do my mommy duties and prepare for our events. No regrets though as I seldom be with some of our relatives. Maybe the only sad part is - i get some breakouts lately at my forehead! I hope that I will not get those acne treatmentin the market, maybe this is just because i'm sleeping late recently, it may not really be an acne. I plan to go to my derma next week to check my skin and to have a facial too. Time for a little pampering for myself!

Vacation, here I come

Work has been a big load lately, that I would always stay up late to finish up things. I am gratefull for the opprtunities coming my way, but you know, I feel restless too from all these so I would really want a quick vacation soon. I would love to go to the beach with my husband not just to unwind but to celebrate our anniversary too. I would like to take the opportunity that we will be away from the kids for a few days.

The caribbean hotels is on the top of my list because I have seen wonderful pictures not just of the hotel interiors but the beachfront as well. I am a true beach lover so whenever we go to different beaches, I certainly enjoy what nature has to offer. Have you heard about the Ocho Rios hotels? A friend of mine stayed there for their anniversary trip too, and he can't help but say only the nice words about the place. It was indeed a paradise according to her. It got me really curious that I immediately went over their pictures and looked at the internet too for some other information. It looks promising to me! Maybe I should try to contact them immediately to see if they still have availability on my chosen dates. These all inclusive hotels certainly catches my attention as I always feel that I need not to worry about anything. From the accomodations, amenities, services, food.. everything is well taken care of. Now, I just need to ask my husband for his suggestions so I can reserve for our stay before these hotels get fully booke
