Look what i've got!

This afternoon after lunch, i went to the filipino food store together with Dustin. I already had my driver license so this is my chance to go at the store without mike. I am happy to find everything that i like from corned beef, dried fish, pancit canton, fish, tocino, longganisa and frozen fish from Philippines. Not only that i got polvoron, sky flakes, otap, oishi crackers snack, arrozcaldo in a cup and a lot more. I payed about $70 for everything. It was kind a expensive but its worth it. I missed all filipino food and i cant wait to go back to the Phillippines again. I dont know when but maybe after 2-3 years from now. :-)

I got a pagerank!

Wow! i was very surprised when i look my pagerank this morning. This blog is already has PR2! Now, i can start making money with this blog. Thank you so much google for giving me pagerank. I been waiting this time and at last my page rank increase. Having pr2 is not that bad, same as the other blog that i have at "femikey journey" blog. So hoping that my traffic will increase and i can start earning money with this blog too. Happy blogging to all and thanks for the visit!

Dustin Cool Pics

This photo taken outside at Redlands Family Practice. Mike was inside having his eye check up. He has an eye allergy that time. So while waiting for him, i decided to take pictures of Dustin outside because they have a very nice garden and Dustin love to sit down in the stairs. Dustin wearing his cool eyeglasses? It makes him really cool! This photo is cute! hehe :-) i like it. Hope you all like it!

Citizenship Marketplace

If this is true then i am sure US citizens can make a lot of money with this if they sell their own citizenship to those people who are willing to be a citizen. But i dont know if its worth it or not? Well on my side, i dont want to sell my citizenship. I am not a US Citizen's yet because i am still processing my papers to be a citizen and i need to renew my residency because it was already expired. So maybe next year i will apply for US citizen so that i will be legally citizens here in the US together with my husband and kids.

6 months preggy...

I remember when im working my visa application before last 2005. I met this girl name Janice, she's really nice and she help me to find the seminar location. She offer to go with us that day because she knew where the seminar is, she lives in Manila thats why she is very familiar with the place. She also processing her visa and married to the white guy from Minnesota. We just talk yesterday and i found out that she is 6 months pregnant. For a very long time waiting at last, she get pregnant. I know she is happy and im glad to talk with her yesterday. We talk a lot and she help me on how to renew my residency status because it was expired already. So mike and i talked about it and hopefully we could renew my residency before its too late. But we need to save money first before renewing my residency status because we still need to pay $575. It sounds a lot but i am sure its worth it. Well, im so happy to hear that she is pregnant and i told her also that i am 2 months pregnant so we are hoping that we can both have a healthy babies!

Waiting for my driver license

I cant wait to get my driver license! hopefully this week i can get my driver license through postal mail because they said they will send it at the mail after a week or two, so maybe next week. Well, while waiting for my driver license, Mike let me drive everytime we go to the store. So it makes me feel comfortable driving using our ford truck. I thought it will be hard for me to handle that car but im so glad i can handle it well. I like driving that car and hopefully Mike will buy me a small car that just right for my size hehe :-) im thinking about a little bug or maybe mercedes benz. We have 2 car already, one is ford truck and the other one is Yukon, so i dont know if i can get another car, maybe we can exchange the other one into a small one hehe :-)

Treasure Hunting all day!

Starting in the morning until afternoon, mike and i decided to go to the park to try our Tesoro Metal Detector and we are both hoping that we can find a valuable stuff but too bad because we found junk hehe :-) Mostly Mike found an alluminum foil, nails, bolts, bottle and can cap not so valuable though but i know mike really enjoy trying his metal detector. While he's doing the treasure hunting, Dustin and I are busy playing in the playground. Thats why it really makes me so tired after an hour of playing and watching Dustin. Then after spending time at the park, we decided to go for a garage sale until noon time. We just had pizza for lunch. Its so tiring, we only find few good stuff like clothes and toys for dustin. Around 1:30pm we went home and take a nap. When we woke up at 4:00pm, we went to the ink shop to buy a black ink for our printer and went to the park after to continue our treasure hunting. It was a very tiring day for me, watching dustin makes me really exhausted. It seems like he dont feel tired at all. He keep playing, sliding, go to the swing and climb everywhere. So now, when we get home, my leg are very sore and im totally knock out hehe :-) Need to massage my foot before i go to bed. :-) Our treasure hunting was fun but its tired. Maybe tomorrow we will try our metal detector at the park here in Orchard Mesa area. Will see what we got tomorrow, hopefully not junk hehe :-)

The baby in 7 weeks

This week the baby's brain is growing at a mind-boggling 100 cells per minute within a see-through skull. If you could peer inside, you'd see those tiny brain cells growing and growing and growing (about as quickly as you feel like yours are shrinking and shrinking and shrinking with your "pregnancy brain"!). More high points include: The baby's face is becoming more defined this week. A tiny mouth hole (which will be ready to wail before you know it!), tongue, nostrils and ear indentations are visible. His or her eyes are wide open, but he doesn't have irises (the colored part) yet. Baby's arm buds are growing. At this point they look more like microscopic ping-pong paddles than arms. Baby's leg buds are also forming and will look like tiny paddles by the end of the week.The umbilical cord—the connection between the baby and the placenta—is now visible.The baby is now between 1/3 and 1/4 inch long—about the length of a Tic Tac and about as heavy as an eyelash. This week the baby has an amazing growth spurt. At the beginning of this week, the baby is approximately 4 to 5 mm and by the end of the week it has more than doubled to 11 to 13 mm! The baby weights approximately 0.03 ounces!

7 Weeks Pregnant

Last Friday i just had my first prenatal check up and the doctor said i am 7 weeks pregnant. The baby's heart beat is beating so fast and the doctor said the baby will be normal and i am so happy with it. She gave me prenatal vitamins sample and i bought prenatal vitamins also at the Vitamin Cottage in case i will run out of vitamins. Here is the result of my pregnancy:

First Prenatal Check-up...

I was very excited for my prenatal check up this morning and i cant wait to see the baby inside me. I was very nervous also because how if the baby's heart is not functioning or having problem? I dont know if i can take it but im glad it went out really well. My doctor ask me if i really feel that im pregnant and i say of course i do because i already have symptoms for being pregnant. I just had miscarriage last April and after 2 months, we are very surprised because i found out that im positive. I try 2 pregnancy test and they have same results. For my first prenatal, my doctor try to find the baby in my lower belly instead of vaginal method. She was so happy that the baby is there and the heart really beating so fast. And she said congratulation! I am happy also to see the baby and we got a picture too. I am hoping that this baby will be healthy just like Dustin. Im starting to take prenatal vitamins to make it sure that my baby is healthy. So thats really a good news and we are both happy! I cant wait to experience to be a mother again for the second time. Either a boy or a girl, it doesn't matter as long the baby is healthy and normal. My second appointment will be this coming August 8. So will see. Im 7 weeks pregnant now! :-)

Injured back?

Mike didn't work for one week because of his fractured back. His doctor appointment was Thursday and his boss said maybe he can take the sick leave. Well... im glad everything is fine now. When we went to his doctor, the doctor said its not a the disc who get injured. Its just a legaments and muscles so it will heal in a couple of days. If he got a fractured disc on his back, then he might beg to his doctor to give him a shot.

When he hear the good news, he was very happy and he went work out in the afternoon that day. But he didn't work at his back that time instead he work with his shoulder and chest. The doctor said that he need to stretch his back, it helps him to feel better and not feel sore at his back. Im glad its not a serious injury and i feel at ease now to know that in a few days he feel better and he can go back to work next week.

My mom was sick

When i talk with my sister yesterday, she told me that mama is not feeling well. She has tonsilitis and fever. It makes me worried of course, i am not there to take care of her but all i can do is to send her money so that she can buy medication for her tonsilitis and go to the doctor to get check up. Its hard to be away to my mama, i miss her and my family. Wish she can recover soon and feel better. I need to keep in touch with them and make it sure that my mama will be fine and be healthy again. Take care mom! love you and i miss you!

Is your kids get frustrated for something like when his building a blocks or playing his toys? My 2 year old son does. He get easily frustrated when the blocks he build falls or knock down. He cried right away. If his toy get broken and he wants to fix it and he cant fix it, he gets mad and cry. I tried to teach him not to cry and try to build another blocks. Dont give up and try to build it again. But his frustration becomes more irritated to me sometimes. I dont know how he got that attitude but it seems like he got it from his daddy hehe :-) anyway, at least he didn't get frustrated when some other kids play with him or if there's an adult watching him playing. But when he played alone? his frustration getting worst. It bothers mike a lot but for me, i understand because he is a kid you know. I just need to assist him and tell him that when it falls, he need to put it back and build another one. Thats easy and no need to cry or scream. :-)

What a smart dog...

Jackrussel terrier is one of the smartest dog i've ever known. We have 11 years old jackrussel and to tell you the truth? sometimes he drive us nuts. He is such a noisy, grouchy old dog. He knows how to open the door using his teeth and paws. I cant imagine how he can open our sliding door. Even at night if he hear noise outside, he grawls and bark right away. It wakes us up of course. He is a big help for us especially if there's a bad people coming inside our backyard. He can even catch rats and any kind of small animals hiding on the ground. He is scared on thunder, rain, lighting or even fire works. He is shaking and wining like crazy. Actually we lock him up outside and he really wants to get inside. Too bad he cant get in. Why? because Mike double lock the gate hehe :-) Last time he make a big hole in our screen window. Mike was really pissed of what he did. Now, we need to fix our screen window and make it sure that he cant reach it. Poor Bandit hehe :-) He is already old thats why his acting like that, or maybe its his nature to do that way. What a smart dog! :-)

Cyber Relationship

A survey from dNeero about cyber relationship. For me? there's nothing wrong of having relationship through internet. There are many people find their true love online and i am one of them. But cyber relationship is not safe either because sometimes people lied, ask for money, or something. You never know that person unless you will met him/her personally. If you think he is serious then be serious too and dont play games. It only depends of what kind of people you met online but be aware to those scammers.

Want to eat Jicama

This afternoon, im starting to feel like “I want to eat Singkamas in English they called “Jicama”. Mike ask “why I want to eat Jicama? He says “before you don’t eat Jicama when you came here in Colorado but now you are really eager to find Jicama“. Why not right? I just saw Jicama when I went to Albertson. And I really want it so I decided to buy 3 pieces of big Jicama. Its not as good and juicy like in the Philippine Singkamas but it looks the same. Anyway, im so happy that I bought Jicama and im glad they have it here in Grand Junction. Tomorrow, we need to go to the Filipino store here in grand Junction area so that I can buy Filipino corned beef, pansit canton, pansit, dried fish, tocino and maybe bangus too (milk fish). Hopefully the store will be open tomorrow or else we can go to the Oriental Store, maybe they have some Filipino stuff.

Is hot tub safe for pregnant women?

I like to be in a hot tub or in a jacuzzi but they said if you are pregnant its not safe because it can cause child defects or miscarriage. So its too risky for a pregnant women to be in a hot tub. I think the baby cant handle the temperature of the water thats why most of the pregnant women lost their baby. They said its okay to stay for few minutes not longer 5-10 minutes. But if its too risky then why not go right?

This afternoon, after mike and i work out, we go to the pool and mike was at the steam room and he go to jacuzzi after. The pool was cold and mike dont like cold water. So i stay alone at the pool even without him. After im done swimming at the pool, i go where mike is and I read the sign board that says "pregnant women are not allowed to be in a hot tub unless they have permission at their physician". I am 1 month pregnant and mike said its not okay for me and the baby. So i decided not to be in jacuzzi but i just put my feet in the water.

Pull the trigger...

A survey from dNeero about gun. I never tried to use a gun before, i even scared to hold it. Owning a gun is good to protect ourselves and our family for any bad people. Its a good self defense too but even its for self defense? i dont like to own a gun because i dont like to hurt people. We have shot gun here for protection but only my husband use it. We hide it where dustin cant reach it or no one can see it except us.

Dustin go outside alone?

Dustin love to go outside without putting his shoes on. He walks bare foot especially if he sneak to go out without letting me know. It makes me worry all the time. One time while im outside feeding our dogs, when i came back? the front door was open and dustin was outside picking flowers in our neighbors yard and sometimes he walk at the mail box too. The last time he went outside was last week, i was watching movie at youtube that time and i thought he is watching movie in our bedroom but when i check it, he's not there anymore and the front door is open except the screen door that is closed. Our neighbor bring him back to me and she said she found Dustin at Oxford street, 1 block away from our house near to our mail box. I was scared to death that time, but im thankful that they bring Dustin back. And this afternoon, he go outside again alone but im glad i saw him right away. He is crying because his feet hurt. So now, i am sure he cant get out anymore because i now checked that the front door is locked. We have 3 locks in our front door and the 3rd lock is on the top where he cant reach it.

Kids at the age of 2 just like my son Dustin. They are very curious in everything, they always love to explore and they are very stubborn sometimes. They dont want to listen. We cant watch our kids all the time, there's a time that we get busy doing some household chores. Well, we just need to make it sure that the door is locked so that they cant get out. Check them once in a while. We need to tell them that going out alone without telling mommy and daddy is bad because how if? something will going to happen to them and get hit by the car or been kidnap? What will you do? thats the scariest thing that would happen and as a mother i dont want to make it happen to my little boy.

Sleepy head...

This afternoon, Dustin didn't take a nap so it means, he will be tired tonight for our bible study. He did pretty good though, he did not make noise and he is so quiet sitting on his chair. When our group bible study start, I noticed that Dustin starting to get tired and he want to go sleep. I told him to sit on his daddy's lap so that he can sleep. First, he is just staring on us then when mike take his hand and put him to his lap, he fall asleep right away. He sleep about an hour, he woke up when mike put him in the car seat. When we came home, he demand to turn off the lights and put his pajama's on, he also ask for a glass of milk and after that he fall asleep on our bed. I just transfer him to his crib because its already 9:30pm. I know he is so tired, he dont like to take a nap in the afternoon. He keep fighting with it and he just want to play in the afternoon and watch movie. It seems like his nap time schedule was changed.

Puppy #5 buyer...

This afternoon i receive a call from one of our buyer. They said they will come by this afternoon to check puppy number 5. I think they had really good choice on choosing that #5 puppy (female fawn). Puppy number 5 is really pretty dog. The color is light fawn with black mask. She's really pretty. She gain weight this week and we ask for $750 with that puppy. Next week after they came back from their vacation, they will going to pick up the puppy and pay the rest. We ask cash no check :-). We cant wait to get rid of our puppies. Why? Because they all chewed our plants outside the yard, they chew the wall inside the house, they go pee and poo in the carpet. Its a lot of work to us hehe but its a lot of money though so its okay. We just need to wait next week for buyer to come by and pick up their puppies :-) We still have 1 more male brindle mastiff available, so maybe if you are interested please let us know :-)
