a turtle,an octopus and two german boys!

i just bought cloths from kamuning, velvet purple and greens and other stuffs to be used for my boys costumes. On saturday, dadalhin ko na sila sa mananahi para sukatan. Sana kaya ni manang ang ipapatahi kong mga costumes ng anak ko!

Ewan ko ba, im not into super giddy and excited with costumes for my boys naman dati, masasabing i'm a boring mom(haha)nga eh, anu nga ba nakain ko? basta, ayus ito!

In My Life....

I wanna watch this movie! i've heard good reviews and i've seen the trailer,it's really nice!My kulit power to hubby must be doubled!it's time to have a date!

Joelits UN day and Halloween costumes!

Joelit's Pre-K class will be busy this month of october, they will have their UN day on October 2, and a Halloween party on October 23. For their UN day, they will choose a country they like, wear its costume and bring a food the country is known for in school. Joelits chose Germany. i searched f
or what costume he will wear and what food we will bring. for the costume i found this:

but ill just have a seamstress do this one,it's cute noh! and with the food, his tito martin will be in charge!hehe since tito martin will leave for germany on october 5 pa, so it'll be an authentic german dish huh!hehe

as for the Halloween party, their theme is under the sea... and joelits wanted to be an octopus!(gosh anak ang hirap nman!) i found cute octopus costume for kids online, and i think i'll just buy cloth and have the seamstress do the magic!hehe

this one is cute din, and i think its easy to make din!

for jarou naman, he'll also be a German boy (sidekick to kuya!) and a turtle maybe for the Halloween party of his kuya :) I'm so excited! so now i need to go to kamuning to buy the cloths needed for the costumes!

papa's condition

so far papa is doing great.

(was taken april 2009,baguio)

From the time he had his TACE (TransArchelialChemoEmbolization?!) treatment last june,he was really in a situation we do not like. he easily gets irritated, can't sleep well,can't eat well due to loss of appetite,always complain of pain in the stomach. We thought its just the effect of the TACE he went through. but after like 2months, he still is not fully recovered from the treatment.... we found out a disturbing result... his cancer had spread through his lungs and other organs...its not really good...

the day mama confessed to me about papa's condition, was the one of the hardest days of my life... i felt like breaking down but i cant. if papa sees me crying, he'll breakdown more and get more depressed. its really hard to put up a strong positive attitude outside when you know you're so much in pain on the inside.

On the brighter part, had his bone scanned also,its cancerfree pa and there are options... and one of these just got out in the market last year. The NEXAVAR (sorafenib) and it's expensive for us! but hey, whatever price that is, we'll take it! diba? pera lang yan we can earn money, there can never be another papa.

At first, papa doesn't like to consider the nexavar option. He once said " with that amount of money for my condition , i'd rather spend it for the kids future...". but after a couple of thinking, he opened up his mind on giving it a try. We try to find out everything about nexavar,and where we can buy it cheaper. the thing that caught our attention was the side effects it can cause to papa....mejo nakakatakot...

we looked for other options... gochi juice.

Papa responded well with the gochi juice, for just a week of drinking it(while at the moment of searching for the best option) the pain he's complaining with decreases and he little by little gains his appetite. we thought, why not just drink gochi juice in full blast (booster dose they call it) it shows a good respons on papa and it's cheaper compared to nexavar!

but the enemy will never be gone and we dont know if it will continue to spread.we need to stop it a.s.a.p.

papa took nexavar. its been a month now. though the pain is still there (it wont totally disappear na daw) he seems ok. no side effects so far....Thank God! sana magtuloy tuloy na ang recovery.We dont know till when, we dont know how much it will cost us,we dont know how far we will fight this battle but what we do know is our family is one in this fight till the last string, we will never give up, and that God is good.

and i am baaacck!!!

hopefully! hehe just felt the momentum today of blogging again after like three-four months! gosh, i hope the momentum stays longer in me!(while the boys are out with tita,hehe)

I've been busy with so many things these past few months, some are good(like parties, maki making,joelits and jarou schooling etc.) some not so good ( my dad's condition- just being with him not doing anything :)) i'd say i'm a busy bummer?hehe gosh i haven't done (STILL!) the things i'm supposed to do! like go to dti!blog!create a passive income! ohhh well, im beginning to have mixed emotions about my being a busy bummer! in two months time it'll be my birthday...i'll be in my late twentiiishh and i am still not proving myself! the fact that i can!literally! my mom once said...ling, you're a jack of all trades but a master of none....mejo this gives me an ouchy feeling, i know i really am a jack of all trades but a master of none... in time, they will see...when my boys grows older (that they are not clingy to me na) when my dad becomes stronger... i'll be back in my groove... but at these times i think im still happy being a busy bummer with my boys and my dad...i know nman i wont regret having so much quality time with them, ohhh yes im doing just great.

** i saw a chicken soup book for the stay at home moms at a bookstore...i thought this will help me look into the brighter side of being a bum haha! but i didnt buy it pa, maybe the next time! when i reeaaly feel bored!
