hello to all my fellow dedicated bloggers around the globe. Welcome to My World! My name is Fe from the Land of Promise, Davao, Philippines. I been here in Colorado for more than 10 years now. Im 34 years old, happily married, full time mom and housewife. Im a quiet type of person that loves to smile and like simple things, im simple both inside and out, love to have happy peaceful life, friendly and sweet. I have 2 wonderful kids Dustin (10) and Dana (7). I love paintings, sewing, dancing, hiking, camping and travelling!
Google is updating, no wonder my page rank get affected with this google update. Its a big slapped for those who has a higher page rank. My blogging journey is now PR0 instead of PR2. This blog become PR1 instead of PR2. My Blog Exploration still PR0 and my thoughts of life blog is PR1. So i have 2 blog that has PR1 and the rest are PR0. Hopefully at the next google update, they will give my page rank back. Having page rank is a big help to make money online through blogging. Now i wont expect that i can get more tasked for the day but hopefully i can still get opps eventhough my page rank went to zero. :-)
Since Dustin put milk in our fish tank, im started to lock him up here in the computer room. Not totally lock him in a room but i put gate to make it sure that he cant go to the living room while im here in our computer room. I put gate in the whole way, so he can only go either in our bedroom or here in our computer room. I can easily see and watch him. Thats a good thing though, now that he is growing up and he learned a lot now. I need to be more careful. Kids are smart, we never know what they will going to do. So as a mother i need to keep away all the cleaning stuff, make it sure that its locked and away from him especially the sharp things like knife or even sharp toys. The door? i always make sure that its locked coz the last time i didn't lock the door, he went outside and went to our neighbors house, it scared me to death that . So from now on, i dont want to make it happen again. Hopefully he will cooperate hehe :-)
Do you know what happen to our fish tank? it becomes white and blured. At first i didn't noticed it but when i look at the fish tank i was wondering why it becomes white. I just found out when Dustin came to me and said "mommy, dustin wash hands fish, fish eat milk". So i knew it! Dustin wash his hand at the fish tank and pour his glass of milk there and also his fish crackers. I was really worried coz maybe the fish will die, i tried to take the fish out and clean it but i need to wait Mike till he get home from his bible study, then we can change the water in our fish tank and change the filter too. Until now the fish tank still blurry and white, hopefully nothing will happen to the fish.
Dustin was feeling better now but he still have a little bit of runny nose and cough, i still giving him tylenol every 4-5 hours. Last night he sleep really good, i never heard him snore a lot like the last time when he has a fever. He's been good so far today and he try to help me doing things here in the house. Im so glad he already feel better, it worried me a lot everytime he get sick. I know all mommies feel that way and hopefully Dustin will always be healthy like before :-)

Mike and I love Sauna. Everytime we go workout, we also spend most of our time in Sauna. But that was before when Im not pregnant. I remember that Mike told me that Sauna is really good for your health because it takes away all your pain including the arthritis, joint stiffness, sore throat, asthma, high blood pressure, aging, detoxification of the body, it increases extensibility of Collagen tissue and a lot more. This is really a good therapy. Hope we can get one so that in case my mom will be here then she can use it.

Then he is right! when we come back we saw 4 dear instead of 1 hehe :-) we are very surprised and im glad we took a photos of them. Here are the photos.
Do you have nothing to do today? How about playing paintball? Did you know that paintball become recognized as one of the world’s most exciting outdoor sports? Most people who like to do outdoors stuff like this type of sports and I like this kind of game too. I never played paintball before but one of my friends invited me to play paintball together with her other friends last 2 months ago but I didn’t go with them because no one will watch Dustin and I don know if Mike would allow me to play. Anyway, I even don’t have thing to use to play paintball but my friend recommend me to get it at pntball.com. Guess what? I found the one that I like, I need to get a tippmann a5 for only $399.95. Im looking forward to try this game with Mike and friends, I am sure he will really like to play this game. Its fun and exciting! So if you are looking for a paintball guns and stuff, I am recommending pntball.com because they have everything you need especially when it comes to this outdoor sports the “Paintball”.
Mike make a Doctor's Appointment for this morning at 9:40 am. We want to make it sure if Dustin is okay because he have a fever, runny nose and teary eyes. He sneeze a lot too. Im glad that the Doctor said that Dustin is okay. Its not that serious, we're just need to give him tylenol every 4 hours. Maybe its just a reaction of the weather especially now that "Fall" already start. After we went to the Doctor for Dustin's appointment we go directly to Grand Junction Airport. My mother-in-law will leave Grand Junction around 1:00pm but we need to be there at 11:30 am. She will go back to Michigan already. Her 10 days vacation is done. We will going to miss her, Dustin start looking for her always saying "mommy where is lola?" i always tell him that "lola go back to michigan now and he ride on the big plane". We're kind a emotional this afternoon, i know how Mike's feeling. Being away from your mother is hard and you only see her every once a year. Hopefully we can see her more. I also missed my mama from the Philippines. Wish we can go back to Philippines next year :-)
I noticed yesterday that Dustin has a runny nose. But i thought it just nothing, i gave her a bath this morning and when we go to the meeting, it seems like his runny nose get worst and it turns into fever. He's not grouchy though, if you look at him, you will never guess if he is sick or not because he act normal. He play and talk a lot. He's still has a lot of energy. He fall asleep at the meeting and Mike told me that Dustin has a cold because of the way he breath. Its like snoring but it came from his nose. He also got teary eyes on his right eyes. When the meeting's done and we went home, i gave him tylenol to reduce his fever and let him rest for a while. After an hour, he looks better and the fever went down, then we decided to have dinner and walk around grand juction downtown, but instead of walking in downtown we end up eating at Chili's because store in downtown are all closed on Sunday. We forget about that hehe :-) Anyway, after dinner at Chili's we get a treat at Dairy Queen, i got a strawberry sundae. We also let Dustin play at the park for a little while, he having fun but when we went home he looks tired and sad. So i put him on the bed and changed him and gave him tylenol again because its already 4 hours before i gave him tylenol this afternoon. Hopefully his fever will go down and tomorrow he will feel better and be an active, happy and energetic boy again. :-)

We just went to National Monument yesterday and we having a great time. This is my second time to go there. We took a lot of photos and im glad my mother-in-law having fun also to our trip. Its a nice drive there, the view are very spectacular. You cant find it anywhere like these in any other countries. So its more better if you come visit here in Grand Junction and see those spectacular views here in Colorado including the Arches National Park, the Grand Canyon, the Black Canyon, National Monument, Grand Mesa, etc. There are many things to do here in Colorado.

I was searching credit cards today because I am not sure what credit card I will going to get. I am planning to get my own credit card so that I can use it anywhere like shopping and buying things. I search it online because that’s the easy way to find credit cards. Not only that they show you the rate, fee and rewards of each cards but also you can compare it to any other credit cards, so its more easier to decide which one is the right for me. I came across this website at CARDHUB and I find it very interesting. You can compare all credit cards side by side. You can apply it right away if you find something you like. For me? I think I will going to pick BP Visa Rewards Card from Chase because I can earn 5% rebate at BP locations, 2% on eligible travel and dining and 1% on all other purchases. I am sure I will going to use these Visa Rewards next time when we travel around US or even outside the US.

Here is my latest picture. This is what i look like now with my big belly hehe :-) Im 14 weeks pregnant and i am looking forward on our second baby. Can't wait to find out if its a boy or a girl. But even its a boy or girl? its okay with me, the important is, the baby is healthy and adorable :-)
I will say that Dustin, my 2 and a half year old son is really a hardworking kid. He loves to help especially to his dad. Actually, while Mike working in our patio, dustin watching his daddy do the work and he imitate his daddy. Just like using the hammer, carry his wheel barrow, digging things or something. Its fun to watch them both. So i decided to take a picture of him while his playing with his little wheelbarrow hehe :-) It seems like he is having fun! I am sure when he grow up he will be like his daddy. A hardworking person. :-)
I am the type of person that dont like to eat midnight snack. I eat 3 times a day only and just a regular meal with rice. I dont like sweet food so much like candy, chocolate, cookies. I eat just one or two pieces thats all. Im kind a picky, sometimes i like sour food and i really missed Philippine mango a lot especially the unripe one. I only eat when im hungry but my doctor said i need to eat more so that i can gain weight especially now that i am pregnant. The baby needs more nutrients. Well, from now on, i will try to eat more and hopefully i will gain weight for my next visit next month of October. We will going to find out if the baby is boy or girl too! Im still in my 14 weeks pregnancy. For my next visit, they will do the ultrasound and will see what the baby look like. Im excited and curious hehe :-)
When we went to my OB-Gyne doctor yesterday for my prenatal check up. I found out that i never gain any weight, im 87 lbs for my last visit last month and yesterday i weight the same hehe :-) Well... even i eat a lot i never gain any weight. I dont know why. When i had my first baby i weight the same and when im 8-9 months pregnant with Dustin, i reach 94 lbs only but when i labor Dustin i go back to 86-87 lbs. Im 84 lbs when im single hehe :-) Im very light and petite. My doctor said, your so tiny, how come the baby fit there on your tummy. Well, there is a way! hehe :-) Dustin came out healthy but i have C-Section because Dustin is breech. I think i will going to have CSection again for our second baby. That is the best option i can choose for. Its kind a scary but i rather to have CSection than normal labor. Im scared maybe i will lose my breath if i do normal labor. hehe :-) Will see after 9 months, next year! :-)
Im talking with my sister from the Philippines and she told me that my younger sister cherry ann already living on his boyfriend and she never came home since last Friday. That’s a big problem because we have 5 kids in the house, and only my elder sister Imee and my mom are the one working and helping each other. When it comes to washing clothes, they are happy that I bought them washing machine. I think it helps a lot for them so that they don’t need to wash all the clothes by hand. My younger sister is a pain in a butt, you know why? Because she don’t listen to my mama and even to me and my sister. She thinks that everything she did was right even though she is wrong. She don’t accept mistake, she is very stubborn and do whatever she wants. I understand why she act like that because of her defects (she cant talk straight). She is like that since she was born. She always feel conscious and always feel embarrass in front to everyone because everyone called her “amang” or bulol”. I felt bad about her because she’s living now with her boyfriend and she don’t want to go home anymore, because she said, she is tired watching reynen (the son of my cousin) which is our adopted and tired for helping the candy making. I don’t know if she will going to have a good future or not because I felt like she don’t have good future on her boyfriend. Her boyfriend don’t have job and I don’t know how her boyfriend and her can survive. I try to help her but it seems like it didn’t work. So I don’t know what will happen to her. Hope she will open her mind and try to do something good to herself and think about her future.
