Customer Service

Half of the day today I spent on the phone talking to customer service representatives. Yes I have issues that I needed to be addressed to regarding our banks, insurance, and other things. The automatic draft of our insurance payments that we thought went through unfortunately it didn't. So hubby told me to call CS because he can't do it. So I did. Then I called one of our account for a charge that I didn't recognize I did. And more other issues. But I am glad I talked to representatives that have sense and were able to help me with what I needed. They answered all my questions and shed light on issues that are vague to me. I am not use to talking to reps because hubby always do it. I leave these things to him. I felt now that I am being trained, immersed in a bootcamp to tackle this financial or household issues.

Busy Day

Wow I can't believe it I did all my errands outside today. Yes I did all even though our DD was not cooperating to me but I still managed to do everything I need to do today. After lunch I changed our DD who was already complaining because she don't want to be bundled up. When I put her in the carseat the whining started. My first stop was Bank of America. It didn't take long for me to do my transaction since there were not much people in line. After the bank I went to the post office and sent stuff to hubby and mail letters. Then I went to Walgreens to pick up the pictures that hubby uploaded to be developed.

It was my first time to more than one errands in a day and have to drive all over the place. It was also my first time to drive around with so much traffic. The places that I went to are far from each other and boy it was very hassle with a little one. Everytime I stop I have to take her out and she was crying most of the time. Yesterday I went to Walmart and the same thing, going to the store and back home she was crying. I guess she didn't like being confined in the carseat and nobody there beside her.

I realized how hard it is to become single parent. Hats off to those single parent who, besides being alone, are able to pull through their daily lives and more. I can only wish I am in the Philippines so I can have somebody to watch our DD while doing all the task at hand. I just took pity on my little one that she has to endure also the stress of being in the carseat and strapped in even if she don't want to. But it is the only way I can do my errands. I just bit my lip while driving hearing her agony. We have to endure some more months of being like this and I will do my best to at least lessen her discomfort next time.

Challenge Tag

Recel gave me an extra challenging tag. It is really challenging. But I will do my best to beat the challenge. Here's my take below:

  1. Champion a child - target: I am prepping my little one to be a champion but there will be no pressure though.
  2. Encourage a co-worker - target: I am SAHM right now..maybe a family member and co-blogger.
  3. Read a great book - target: I think of many but I am not starting anything yet right now. Busy with other things or shall I say reading baby books.
  4. Do something that frightens you - target: Watching horror show?
  5. Write a thank you note - target: Yes for my hubby and family.
  6. Do something kind for a stranger - target: I smiled and said hello to a stranger I met outside today.
  7. Wow a customer - target: I can't think of anything other than the advertisers :-)
  8. Learn something new - target: Motherhood always makes me discover something new everyday.
  9. Let go of a resentment - target: It's not resentment but worries that I am letting go right now.
  10. Do better work - target: Bettering myself as a mother and a wife.
  11. Be more passionate - target: I am always passionate, in all aspects.
  12. Speak truthfully - target: I am doing my best and some more. Truth can set us free, ain't it?
  13. Stand for excellence - target: Always stand for excellence. Do not settle for less.
Whew! That was hard! Now I wanna tag jhona, chic shopaholic, scotty's princess, summer, and julianna.

Of Becoming Independent

I am being nostalgic and sentimental nowadays. I think it is because I am going through the adjustments of being alone tending to our needs as well as raising our daughter. Although hubby is still very instrumental in every decision I make but still the execution of the decisions lies in my very own hands. Honestly, everytime I do something I would always say to myself, "I wish hubby is here". It all changes now. Nevertheless, I am happy that this whole thing teaches me to stand on my own and make a sound judgment of all that is happening with us. It somehow empower me to make things that I thought I would never do at all. I still have so much to learn but happy that I already taken the first step.
