Free at Last

Before when our credit was whacked, we got calls from different debt collectors. Before we embarked on the biggest decision of our lives, becoming a homeowner, we paid our debts and I am so thankful that now we no longer hear those calls. It is very liberating that this happened to our lives. We can now move on and make sure that everything in our lives are in order.

I think most people passed through this episode in their lives where you will be in debt and you are trying your best to get out of it. A lot of people successfully handle it and I am proud to say that we are one of them. We are now more responsible and always on track with our finances. Our lesson learned is not to spend beyond your income. Make sure that you have emergency funds and build up your savings for retirement. We are still and will continue on what we have started with regard to our plans and God-willing we will get there too.

In Case of Emergency

We love to travel and we are planning of one soon since we were not able to go for vacation for almost 2 years now. My husband will be deployed again and we wanted to take a vacation before he leave. One thing that we always make sure before we go some place is to make sure everything is set up because we don't know when emergencies happen. People have different ways of dealing such things but I am pretty sure all of it will gear toward the betterment of the whole family.

One thing I learned about travelling and if there are emergencies is to call the services that you trusted more. It is best to set this up before hand so that when incidents happen you know who can rely too. Say if you are travelling on an rv, an rv travel emergency services that can give assistance will be a great help. There are companies that offers emergency evacuation while travelling and it will surely make life easier once these things happen. You can check online for these services and make sure you go for the one that will give you the confidence of using their business.

Congrats to Miss Shamcey Supsup - 3rd Runner Up Miss Universe 2011

Last night was again another big night for the Filipino people. Miss Shamcey G. Susup brought the country pride and honor being the 3rd runner up for the coveted Miss Universe pageant. She is an epitome of a Filipina woman. If I am not mistaken, she don't have any foreign blood in her. She is a true Pinay with oozing beauty and brains. She represented the country very well. We should all be proud of what she accomplished. She put the country in the map again just like her predecessor Miss Venus Raj - 4th Runner Up Miss Universe 2010.

I read that there were lots of disgruntled Pinoys. Let us all remember that everyone has its own time. I believe that the winners are deserving and should have the respect of everyone. No bashing that sounds like sour graping. Those that expect too much in this type of competition should come out to reality. As what our contestant have said during her interview she said that being able to be in the top 10 is a miracle. All those stunning and brilliant ladies deserved to be reckon with even if they did not win. I am pretty sure that in the hearts of their respective countries, they too are winners and their Miss Universe.

I Miss Holding a New Born

It seemed like I was giving birth just yesterday, but it's been 16 months already. Time fly by so quick. I miss holding my tiny ones. Every time I see newborns I have that longing in my heart. This is why when I have my two daughters I celebrated their being a newborn. I went online before I have them and checked out different ideas of celebrating little ones. I found good sites that shares ideas how to celebrating your newborn. One thing I learned in one of those sites was to buy a ring and when our daughters outgrew it I made it as a pendant. It's a good idea. You can always carry a memento of your little ones wherever you go. I shared the story to our older girl already. She got excited the first time she learned about it. It is a good conversation piece too for both you and your little one.
