Live shows on your PC

As Ive mentioned a couple of times how busy my day is since I gave birth to my son 6 weeks ago plus I have a baby sitting gig, I have to take care of the kids before I can do anything for myself like taking a shower, blogging or watching television. The only time I can watch anything on TV is during night time when my kids are asleep, I even miss watching our own show from where Im from then I heard about where I can turn my PC into a TV, I can watch movies, news, music videos, and more from the US and all over the World. On top of that I can watch my favorite show from the Philippines if I want to, this will be a great deal for me, I only have to pay a one time activation fee to download the software, no monthly bill or anything.. Isn't it cool,  I get to watch Live Filipino show whenever I want to, so I wont be homesick a lot, I cant wait to share this to my husband when he gets off work.
All I really need is Internet connection to access shows around the world , how convenient is that., no monthly bills, over 1,000 channel and easy download... if  ever I will subscribe to Livetv4me we might eliminate our cable connection., so guys you better check for more information.


my man is a soldier

My man is a Soldier, proud as can be
I see him in uniform, and something comes over me.
My heart swells with pride, tears fill my eyes.
My love for my Soldier, I cannot deny.

I feel the tears as they stream down my face
As my love, my heart, takes me in his embrace
Then he utters the words, my greatest fear
And all I want is to hold him near.

His love for me is apparent on his face
As we come together for that final embrace.
I wipe my tears, then that one final kiss
I whisper to him, "it is you my heart will continually miss".

I know I need to hold it all together
Fight for the love I've searched for forever
He is my man, my sweetheart, my love
Sent directly to me from the heavens above
I won't run, I won't hide
I will stand beside my Soldier and serve him with pride.

See, my man is a Soldier
I will forever be by his side
As he defends our country, our land of pride.

To you my Soldier, I will always be true
I know that you are going to do what you have to do
Please know that my love is always with you
As you go to defend the Red, White, and Blue!

** I dont know who wrote this one, I just want to share this to everyone.. :)

Family Child Care

Im a stay at home mom watching 3 kids right now, I have a toddler and an Infant plus I baby sit Manny who is 2 years old for 6 weeks now, his dad said it will only lasts for 2 weeks but I still baby sit him until today, oh well im getting paid real soon so im excited about it.. LOL.. I dont really have an option to work outside of our home since my kids are still very young, My plan is to have a day care in my won home, it is so common here where I am because child care is expensive and the waiting list is CDC is very long, good thing they are offering a free training at CDC to be a Professional Child care Provider and be a Licensed Family Child Care (FCC). I already attended the orientation, they told me that they would provide toys, inspect my house and  everything, how cool is that all I have to do is attend 7 days training for CPR and first aide which I cant do until my mom gets here.

Im glad this house is a bit bigger and we dont have a lot of stuff  so I can have space for my plan to have a day care here..

Holidays at Hilton Branson

We will celebrate our Christmas here in the States for the first time, we are already  made plans on where to go,  I suggested that we should go to his Mothers house and spend Christmas over there, or if not we might go to Missouri because my husband likes it there when he did his basic training 6 years ago. He didnt really see the tourist attraction there like the Ozark Mountain Christmas because he was on training for a few months and he always thought of going back one day. So, this is a good time to fulfill  his wish, we might consider going to Branson Landing in Missouri  and stay in Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing they have A wonderful life package starts at  $329 a night that runs from Nov 15 until Dec 23,with discounts at various restaurants and shops plus a treatment at Aspire Medical Spa...There is also Story Time with Mrs. Claus Package, starting at $189 per night and running from Friday thru Sunday Nov 15 thru Dec 23, I'm sure my son will love to see Santa Claus at the  Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel  that will delivers presents, cookies and milk to the guest's room. What would be a great way to spend the Holidays than spending it with your love ones, I just hope that we have enough time and budget to do all  these things.


Pumpkin and the boys

I saw that the USO center has some Pumpkin outside their office so I decided to bring my kids outside even if it was freezing to have their pictures taken.
We are very excited for the upcoming Halloween, I taught Jaden how to say trick or treat and his costume is all set...


Breast Cancer Awareness

I had a neighbor who died of breast cancer, she had a mastectomy to prevent the cancer from spreading, we really thought that she will get better but sadly she died, it was so devastating how breast cancer can claim her life that fast,  the good news about this is there is an on going research to find cure to this dreaded disease.
October is  Breast Cancer Awareness Month thus increasing awareness could save thousand of lives, Cryo-Cell International, Inc is partnering with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study menstrual stem cell to treat breast cancer soon. It is amazing how a stem cell found in menstrual blood could be the answer to cure breast cancer.  Cryo-Cell launced a C'Elle Breast Cancer Donation to help raise funds for the research. This month you can be a part of  Cyro-Cell Breast Cancer Donation of $50  to the Susan B. Komen Foundation if you enroll in "Protect baby, Protect Mom" service and $25 for each purchase of the C'elle Menstrual Stem Cell service. I just wish that  soon they will find cure to this illness who affects women all over the world, so lets help raise awareness to everyone.

Mommy Moments - Tantrum

mommy moments

My Eldest son Jaden's latest Tantrum moment was when we were at the Hospital during my delivery 4 weeks ago, maybe he understand that he wont be the center of our attention because his little brother is coming soon .. After baby Perry came out Jaden started crying so my husband had to carry him and he wasn't able to cut Perry's Umbilical cord because he was holding Jaden,  oh well that's according to my hubby, I was so tired and sore to pay attention to my surroundings during that time..

How do I handle when my son throws a tantrum on me? hmm.. I just ignore him and he usually stops crying or keep bugging me for something, but sometimes I raise my voice and  yell at him like this : bantay ka lang Jaden ayaw ko palaguta, then he would come up to me and  say hugs mommy hugs,...  my husband  even said that Jaden is such a faker, he pretends to be crying to get our attention which is so annoying..

In love with a Soldier

I didn't write it but I can't find the link to credit who wrote it!

Loving a soldier is a high price to pay,
loving him truly is hard when he's away.
It's being alone with nothing to hold;
lt's being young, but feeling old;
it's having him whisper his love for you;
it's whispering back that you love him too.
There comes a kiss and a promise for more,
as his plane slowly rises to soar;
reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
while your insides are dying from wanting him so,
watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears.
It's sending a letter with the stamp upside down,
to a far away love in a far away town.
It's going to church to kneel and pray,
and really meaning the things that you say.
Being in love will foster your dreams,
of that far away soldier your mind fairly beams.
Days go by, no mail for a spell,
you wait for some word to hear that he's well.
Then a letter arrives, and you've given in,
to open his letter and read it with a grin,
yes, he is well and misses you so,
it's filled with the love you wanted to know.
Weeks are like months, and months are like years,
you wait for the day when you'll have no more fears.
Days go by slowly, how many have passed?
Yes, loving a soldier brings bitterness and fears,
loneliness, sadness and despondent years.
Loving a soldier isn't much fun,
but it's worth the price when the battle is won;
and remember he is thinking of you everyday,
he's sad and he's lonely while so far away;
so love him and miss him and hold your head high,
be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.
It's the high price you pay for loving a soldier.

♥♥ I am in love with a United States Soldier. I will support him in his defense of the Constitution of the United States of America. And I will understand that he must obey the orders of those appointed over him. I represent the true backbone and fighting spirit of the Army. And for those who have served before me I salute you with all the strength and loyalty my heart can muster. I proudly stand by the one I love with Honor, Courage and Commitment. I am committed to support my soldier and the United States Army..

for job seekers and professionals

In today's job market where unemployment rate is high and employers are really looking for a highly qualified applicants, you must have an edge to get notice by your big boss to get promoted or be hired if your a job seeker. I have an uncle that works as a HR manager for a big Corporation which I am not going to mention ,  he advises me to  look my best when going for a job interview because they always consider a well groomed applicants in their hiring process.
It might be true then because according to the recent survey of 500 HR Professionals commissioned by Gillette and conducted by Harris Interactive, signifies that 84 % of HR professional agree that well- groomed employees climb the corporate ladder faster than those who are not well-groom.

For job seekers and professionals  out there check out   Gillette Career Advantage for useful amount of information and tips about how to advance your career in a competitive job market, you can review the expert advice from Mark Jeffries and GQ style correspondent Brett Fahlgren, take the Gillette Career quiz and read thoroughly the Hire Guide to see what HR Professional really think.

The woman behind the ....

I found this on a Military Spouse forum :

THE WOMAN BEHIND THE (inset branch)

She stands in front of you in line at the post office with the big box and the customs form.

She parks next to you at school, her car sporting the latest "Support the Troops" magnet or sticker.

She sits a couple seats down from you in class or at work, but she is too distracted to carry on a real conversation.

She carries herself with poise and elegance.

A grown woman in a young girl's body, she has dealt with more heartbreak than she could ever wish on another human being.

She's the girl with the bloodshot eyes and her cell phone always on.

She is always anticipating his phone call, and when it comes, the first thing she asks is, "How are you doing?"

She is becoming more and more selfless with every passing day, and finds herself thinking about his friends more than her own.

Every night she says a prayer for him, and thanks God for bringing her one day closer to his homecoming.

Every time she hears their song on the radio, her expression goes blank as she fights back the tears.

Sometimes the pressure is too much to handle, and she snaps, usually at the expense of the people closest to her.

The tears flow easily these days, and they seem to have no end.

The stuffed animal he sent her soaks up the tears she cries in his absence as she recounts all the days apart.

Any talk of deployments, extended tours, or re-enlistment makes her stomach tie itself in knots because she can barely handle the time and distance now.

But he will never know any of this.

He got the best training in the world to do his job, and she is expected to be Super Woman with no manual.

She knows that he needs her to be the strong one, and so she is.

Without the pay, benefits, or training, she is supposed to be just like him.

I can really relate to the above post because I experienced everything written on it when my husband was deployed..

Perry was only 2.6 kilos or about 5.13 pounds when he was born, so little just like his kuya when he was born.. hmm I wonder why my babies are so small when they were born, i was always eating and my tummy was so big when I was pregnant.. ohh well the good thing about it was I didn't have any tear down there.. LOL...
