The best online school for a military wife

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ashworth College. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's a tough job being a military wife, we constantly move a lot and transfer to other places. There are many things that we experience on our daily life. My husband just came back from his deployment in Afghanistan, I was left with my two kids. I became independent, I did things that I didnt know I'm capable of doing.

There are also advantages of being a military family, aside from it's job stability and good benefits. I had the opportunity of studying online, through a scholarship given to  us, it was such a big blessing.
As of now, there are 4,000,000 students taking online classes, it is very convenient especially if you have kids. You can do your school work at home, thus, thus cutting the cost of childcare and commuting to a regular school.
Ashworth College is named the 2010 GI Jobs military friendly school , they offer more than 100 + accredited career diploma, Associate Degree, Bachelor's Degree and many more. Plus, you don't have to worry about PSC'ing because all their classes are online, so you can take it with you everywhere. They participate in Military benefits and educational programs: DANTES, Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) , A.C.E. ,GI Bill, MyCAA .  I got my scholarship through MyCAA by the way, which was very easy to apply, and they approve me quickly. I dont have to worry about paying it back, it is absolutely free for active military spouses, if you qualify. Ashworth College offers, affordable tuition fee and zero interest payment scheme, there are no entrance exam to be accepted. They are  very military friendly school.

If you are a military wife, who is looking for a portable career, or a work at home job, then grab this opportunity to study, then choose a school that will cater to your needs . In this economic down turn, we all need to help out, to provide extra income to our family and taking extra step, will contribute to our families. My husband's paycheck is not a lot, that's why I have been working to help out with our expenses.

I havent updated this blog in a while, ive been very busy with my work lately.
I didnt have enough time to think and sit down and blog anymore, I miss blogging and the friends that I met  here. It is just sad that my work take up all of my time, and I have to attend to my kids needs too.
There are many thing's that I did on my own when Jason left for Afghanistan. I got a drivers license , register my eldest son to part day pre school, and many more. I also met a lot of Filipina here on base which Im very thankful for, it's not so boring anymore because i get to hang out with them once in a while.

My husband just got back from his deployment, so we were able to visit NYC a few days ago and Im sharing some of our pictures.

My husband is deployed and I got a job

As many of you noticed that I am not active in blogging anymore, my husband went to Afghanistan a few days ago and i got a job here on base at the BX/PX. When my mum came here last month I went on job hunting right away, luckily I got hired recently and has started working since last Wednesday. I also met a lot of Filipina here, they have been really nice and helpful to me, im so thankful that Im friends with them, im not so homesick anymore..

Anyways, Im going to share some our pictures  this month, Jaden won a prize during the easter egg hunt yesterday, Perry is 6 months old and my mum met a lot of friends here and I think she has adjusted very well to the environment as well.

She will arrive in BWI on Feb. 18 t around 10 AM. I just hope that next week we wont have any snow storm, there are already flight cancellation in BWI. We just had over 3 feet of snow last weekend and tonight looks like we are going to have 10-20 inches of  snow..
Anyway, Im quite excited that after a almost a year im going to see my "mama"... i hope she gets here safely!

Snowy Weekend!


taken last Dec. 19, 09 when we had a 22 inches of snow

We have a severe weather advisory here in Maryland, we have a snow storm today until tomorrow. It's already snowing right now, we should suppose to to have 16-24 inches of snow. A snow doesnt really bother me that much since I just stay at home most of the time. I really commend how how fast they clear up the road after a big storm, our local heroes here are the plow truck drivers, who works overtime to plow the roads every snow storm, the USPS mail man who deliver our mail even when its snowing. I noticed that we always have snow storm during weekends, which is good since most people do not have to go out and work.

He's ipod is more expensive than my purse, lolz... We have two zune but he broke his last year and he cant use mine because the song's in it are mostly OPM and Pop songs which he doesnt like.

Anyways, a couple of days ago he said that he might not deploy, he's not sure yet.. I'm hoping he's not..
And oh my, It's snowing here.. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Preparing for deployment # 3

Its almost 2 AM, I couldnt sleep, DH just told me that he is deploying very soon, I know its part of his job but I am not ready yet. I was caught off guard, I never expected this to be this soon, he told me before that they will not deploy him because he has been in a shi**y deployment.. but guess what.. deployment number 3 is headingour way!!!! Im really scared for him this time, he is going somewhere that he's never been to and its a far more dangerous place...
How am i going to prepare myself and the kids?  Im in a foreign country, im still adjusting at this moment. My only consolation is that my mom is coming here soon!

USNS Comfort

This huge Navy  hospital ship left Baltimore Port last Saturday morning, one of our friend in cafemom was tellin us that her husbands was in this ship, she said they left abruptly to go to Haiti to help the earthquake victims there. She was asking for snacks like crackers and cookies to the members of our group so that they could give it away to the troops inside the ship as a snack.
The Doctors and Nurses aboard the ship are from the National  Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The hospital where I gave birth to my youngest son Perry.
I was just watching the news today and the ship is in Haiti treating the victims, but they cant dock in the port because it was destroyed by another earthquake this morning.

Ruby Tuesday

My  Ruby Tuesday entry for this week is my son wearing a Red mickey mouse hat while we were at Disney World!

protect your property

I am really thinking about having our backyard fenced by the housing company, when we move into this house we were told that we can have our backyard fenced but there is a 12 months waiting list for them to install a fence. My husband decided not to do it then, because he said it will be useless since we are on the end unit, and our back yard is down hill slope. Now, I regret not having it done,  I should have not listen to him, why because now every time I go out in our backyard I see dog poop in there,, ohh its awful. My son loves to go out there and play with his ball, I just wish our neighbors would watch where their dog poop.

If you are a home owner in San Diego then you should check out  San Diego Fence Company , its very important to protect your properties, to avoid untoward incidents with your neighbors or anybody in the future.

my mom's package

A friend of mine who is from Iligan sent me this package from my mom, Im very thankful that Mae agreed to bring this package and send it to me when she arrived in Kentucky  before Christmas.  I was teary eyed when I received the package, I miss them so much, my sister made a collage of my babies pictures, my mom bought Jaden a toy and a sun glasses for Perry.

the love month

February is a very special month for us because we met 3 days before valentines day 4 years ago. I met my husband online,  he was deployed in Iraq when I started talking to him , we were communicating for about 7 months before he could come to the Philippines after his tour and that is how everything started. Its so amazing ow time flies, it seems like it just happened yesterday . We have been married for almost 4 years now and blessed with two wonderful children.

Valentines is a few weeks to go and Im hoping that he would get me something  like a chocolates or flower so he might need a Flower coupons to save . Im not really sure what my husband's plans for valentines, I hope it will be special since it will be our 2nd valentines day together.

staying fit

Ive mentioned before that my new years resolution is to loss weight by eating health foods. I know its hard to return to my pre ;pregnant weight but I know I can do this. I really want to wear my old clothes again like my jeans and underwear. Since my mother is coming I want to  Travel and Stay fit all the time for my family, I want to be healthy and live longer to be around my children when they grow up.

I am hoping that this year I can exercise a lot to tone my muscles on my stomach and in my arms, as im getting older those areas are my biggest problem so far. I wish there are easier way to just stay fit magically.

torrents download

I have been watching movies that I downloaded during the weekend, i cant go to a movie theater anymore since I got here because no one will watch my kids so i download movies from the internet like torrents download, Im glad our internet connection is super fast I can download movies in no time and watch the movies I want on my laptop. This has been my routine for the past few months since I got here I download movies, tv shows, and many more then watch them before I go to bed or during the weekend if I don't have anything important to do. It was my husband who introduce me to torrents, he taught me how to download movies, music, tv series and such online, its a great way to watch my favorite shows at no cost at all.

I joined cafemom and met a lot of mommies here on base,  they taught me how to get coupons and how it works,  we buy our grocery twice a month and used coupons last week, when i looked at the receipt i saw how much we saved from using the coupons, lol it was $20.. not bad ehh..

YAY! I Love coupons..

construction worker

Before my husband joined the Army he was into construction with his step dad, he did that for about 3 years they would usually go to different  places to work. when we visited his mom in South Carolina he pointed out to me a building near Charlotte SC, saying that it was one of the construction project they had before. He can  easily  recognize the  Construction Logos from the distance. Until now his step dad is still doing construction, he is actually in PA right now because they have a big projects there. my husband didnt really like his job before because he is away most of the time and his biological dad was also doing construction, he died when hubby was an infant.. his dad fell out of a building that they were working on...  very tragic, he cant even remember how his dad looks like except for the pictures and he had an article in the newspaper about that incident.

big screen tv

I love watching tv during my spare time, i want to get updated about the latest news and events in our area, i keep track on the weather too through the television. When we move into this house 6 months ago the first thing that we bought was a big screen tv, my husband was so excited when we received  our refund  from the move he asked me if he could get a tv and i said yes instantly, although at the back of my mind i know  that flat screen tv are expensive like a projector and such, but hey what the heck, a big television is a must. My husband mounted it in the wall so our son cant reach it because we know how he is, there was even one time that he tried to throw his ball on the tv, I  am hoping that we could get a new LCD tv soon to put in our bedroom, we got an old tv upstairs but  hubby uses it to play his xbox.
