My Birthday and Christmas Wish List

My birthday is drawing near once again and I can't help myself to feel excited eventhough another year will be added to my age. I feel so blessed to have been born in November making me a Scorpio girl and to see the beauty of the world.

Every year, I make it a point to shop for myself since no one else will do it for me I usually go out shopping on or before my birthday splurging a little bit on some items. It's my special day so I'll treat myself and give myself some special rewards every year for it is a must!

I have some material wish list and here are some of them. I'm not sure if I can give it to myself though.
1. La Germania mini-oven - around P15,000 so I can bake and grill foods
2. Osterizer - i heard my sis will give me her oster this Christmas yey, so I don;t need to buy this anymore.
3. New leather wallet, I prefer Tory Burch, Michael Kors, or Fossil brands
4. New dress for Christmas

Hmm.. I don;t have that much wish list as it appears. Good for me! The only problem I have is the Christmas shopping list for my friends and relatives and that includes ns design bass strings for my nephew who loves music so much that he also wanted to take up conservatory of music in college. yay!

I Voted !

Today is national holiday here in our country because it's Barangay Elections. Barangay is the smallest unit of government and it is administered by a Kapitan and some Kagawad.

Today , we need to select 1 Kapitan and 6 Kagawad that will ensure the prosperity, peacefulness, orderly and other stuff for our Barangay. I just hope that who ever will win will do their utmost competency and honesty.

The voting is generally peaceful in our place and no killings are reported unlike in other towns and cities all over the country.

Maintaining the House

No matter what we do, our house will deteriorate in time. The weather and everyday use inside the house are just some factors that can make our house damage. As a a homemaker, we should be ready if repairs will be done because there are times that repairs will come unexpectedly and simultaneously.

Just the other week, our backdoor just gave up without any warning and the roof also needs some minor repair. My mom has no choice but to call her trusted all-around handyman to repair and check other things in the house. I overheard that they need some new screws, joints, nails and more and it's pretty easy now to order at their supplier. Some people even order online as reid has ample supplies for homes and industries.

Today, the desk fan of my niece got busted and sparked. Thankfully, nothing else happened except it emits a foul smell. They bought another one today and those little unnecessary expenses will add to the monthly budget.

Everyone Needs a Good Sleep

Ahhhhh sleep.... everyone needs a good one.

Been working hard again these days since my birthday and holidays are coming again in no time so I have to double my time to earn some more. It only means that I need to be in my computer for extra more hours just to finish some details.

I have experienced dizziness and sometimes imbalance because of lack of sleep so I told myself to be in bed by 10 pm. I recovered for few months but oh boy, here I am again staying late at night which I guess is not good for my health and for everyone else. Sound sleep is what I need and I even tempted to buy a foambymail memory foam topper that probably can aid in my sleep at night.I might have to try one soon.

Apart from that, I really need to discipline myself once again to sleep early because if not I'll experience dizziness once again.
