i've tasted soup no.5 :) --multiply post 4/22/08

hehe ok nman sha liked it nman, c hubby nagluto eh its my tito's request to him, granted, shempre taster ako ok nman, kaaya aya nman ang ichura ng soup kasi u wont really recognize nman the balls hehe na heartburn lang ako after!hehe dunno if its the soup or napagod lang ako sa stairs

thank you Lord!!!(multiply post 4/21/08)

we got the result of joelits eeg, thank God its normal,as well as his cbc! i have less to worry now, and thank you ear thermometer i now find myself checking my little boys body temp. every now and then with a smile :) no more wrestle and hassle! just a click away!hehe
when joelits was still a little baby and behave pa (and wla p sa vocabulary ko ang digital thermometers) i love what i have the old school thermometer, nung mejo malikot na (slight) joelits i rem.aa telling my try the digital one, mejo i refuse pa kasi for me parang mas ok the old school kasi ul see pa the mercury(realistic ba) pero i was wrong now na super kulit na joelits and super irritated when he is not feeling good, mygoodness hindi ko sha makuhaan ng body temp! so i bought a digital one, ok at first saya din kasi nababasa ko agad pero its hard to get joelits bodytemp. parin, till the very frightening experiece we had with joelits ( he had a febrile convulsion) and i got paranoid na, i wanted to check on joelits every minute every second eh mahirap sha kuhaan ng bodytemp, though a little expensive ok lang basta mamonitor ko lang lagi cla, super sulit sha, i'd say it's a must for families with young kids esp. those who have history of cunvulsions lalo na from high fever na kasi once nangyari na, there's a great possibility it'll happen again unless u take extra care na!
it'll be an experience i'll never forget for the rest of my life... at ayoko na a super duper nightmare of my life... thank you Lord for the prayers of love for joelits.
thank you joelits for fighting half the battle with us.

what a feeling!!!(multiply post 4/22/08)

joelits: " wee, wee, wee!!"

i need to let it out...(multiply post 4/21/08)

its been 2weeks since the very traumatic experience we've had with joelits, he's ok now, back to makulit mode,evrythings back to normal..iguess... not for me, i need to let it out, gosh hindi parin ako ok. its always on my mind,the smile of joelits as he wakes up from a sleep that suddenly turned to a loud scream( scream of so much pain) then to the state where he turned pale and his eyes were so scary, i really panic as it was the first time i saw him that way, that i forgot to calm myself down and carried him agad to his father ( he panic as well...) we got so scared we thought nooo we can't loose you, not now not ever. as we rushed him to the nearest hosp. all i do is massage his feet,head,hands, hug him tight and tell him baby pls.hold on,wake up wake up, pupunta tayo jollibee db.... paulit-ulit..(hubby is driving like crazy nadin..) i only relax a little when joelits began responding to me telling him we'll go to jollibee..(haay what's with jollibee that makes a kid finally coming back to conciousness!) then we got to the e.r. they gave him first aid and oxygen (buti nalang he stabilized agad) when i saw his eyes normal na and he started to cry na (though ayaw ko sha naririnig umiyak) haaay thank you Lord, super naiiyak talaga ako... then nagpaadmit nlang kami muna to have him monitored,take necessary exams for him and take medication for his fever, buti nman ok na, d following day makulit na ulit sha, nagcheck out na kme, sha ok na, ako hindi pa, kahit super sleepy na ako,id wake up in the middle of the night finding myself crying as i rem the look of joelits the moment he had the febrile convulsion, at day, lumilipad ang isip ko,hindi ako mapakali,i check on them every min evry sec. mejo o.a. na everytime i txtd someone about joelits condition maiiyak nnman ako, when they sleep during the day, gustu ko katabi nla ako until they wake up to make sure hndi na maulit, when joelits cries or scream, natataranta ako, lalo na at nyt, one tym, we are all asleep when joelits suddenly screamed, bgla ako napabangon carried joelits and called on to hubby( gutum lang pala si joelits...) puyat nanaman kami ni hubby!
very traumatic experience, ang hirap alisin on my system, it forever changed my life, i brought back the girlscout in me agen(laging handa ngyek!) so when out with my little boys, i make sure i have ear thermometer, coolfever,paracetamol,fully charged fone. i have a new hobby now, bodytemp.checker!mwehehe

my little joelits back to his makulit mode now(thank you Lord) and i don't know when i'll be totally fine, ok lang, wag nalang ang kids...may they always be in good health.

just in time for lenten season..

i got this from the book i was talking about...

Beatitudes for a wife....

Blessed is she whose daily tasks are a labor of love; for her willing hands and happy heart translate the duty into privilege and her labor becomes a service to God and all mankind
Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both strangers and well-loved friends; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.
Blessed is she who mends stockings and toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to humanity.
Blessed is she who scours and scrubs; for well she knows that cleanliness is an expression of godliness.
Blessed is she whom children love; for the love of a child is more to be valued than fortune or fame.
Blessed is she who sings at her work;for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.
Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out cobwebs of confusion; for her faith will triumph over all adversity.
Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her buoyancy of spirit is an aid to mental and physical digestion.
Blessed is she who preserves the sanctity of the Christian home; for hers is a sacred trust that crowns her with dignity.

so serious...

on married life... i was waiting for hubby to call me and drive my way to the bus station where he patiently waits for our bangus to arrive, i saw this little bookstore across the street so i decided to check it out , it was a religious/selfhelp/inspirational kinda bookstore where almost every book there i find interesting ( kasi when i was single and not occupied with family life, i used to read some selfhelp/inspirational books hehe) then i saw this book, mejo natawa ako sa title: How to keep your husband happy (shempre mei how to keep your wife happy din) shempre it got my attention, cge nga patingin if mei katuturan ang mga nakasulat so for short bilini ko sha!haha ok lang mura lang naman eh! hubby called...just in time to go!

i scanned the pages of the book(actually manipis lan sha, ) hmmm pwede nren, i found some stuffs there na hehe uyy relate ako hehe and hey im doing good nman pala eh, ahh yeah mei point, actually its like men are from mars and women are from venus approach kaya nagenjoy narin ako basahin hehe kasi it not really focuses on how to keep husbands happy but wives as well, parang how to keep the fire burning always!hahah d usual give and take situation, but more on the wife giving more ba... hmm well it has a point lalo na when you read it fully, being a wife is a toughie a! coz it's in us that lies not only the happiness of our husbands but of our home as well.

so how do i end up buying the book again? wala lang hehe actually i want to buy the how to keep your wife happy book because for sure andun ung mga saying na even when your married already continue to court your wife, go on dates, give flowers, u know stuffs we forever love receiving?! that sometimes hubbys overlook when your married na kasi busy with work and kids that his lambing to you nalang is kilitiin ka to death, and the loving gesture martians do that venutian don't notice naman! though hubby has his own ways of showing me his supa dupa love for me and the kids wala lang, i just want to point to him honey ohh more dates daw :) hehe

whhell, maybe i just miss our couplehood days when all we do is date date date :)
