The Day Before Her Dad Leaves

Today is the day before Henry leaves for Ilocos. He'll be gone for several days, and I'm wondering how Keisha will do. When Henry left for a long trip last year, Keisha had a hard time sleeping as she was waiting for her dad. I am hoping that since she has school to keep her busy and her mind off of things, she might be a little bit better this year compared to last year.

Henry's on another daily tour today, and I'm not sure what time tomorrow he'll be leaving. But I hope I'm here to see him off. With the work I have which makes nights into mornings and Henry's work that eats up most of the day, we rarely get to see each other during peak seasons. It makes me sad, but I just shrug things off and breathe, after all, we're doing these for the kids.

I'll miss him terribly, an I know Keisha will too. I just hope he stays safe all the time.

Fire Casinos

Casino games are abundant nowadays. It's hard to decide where to invest your money as in the world of online gambling, no one is really assured of being 100% positively safe. I came across a site called Fire Casinos that lists the most reputable online casinos. Featuring state-of-the-art game graphics and sounds, generous bonus offers, a wide selection of games to choose from, and fast payouts, it would be a list that is a must to view for every casino gamer.

Zenni Optical Eyeglasses

I am glad that Zenni Optical was on FOX news! I've come across this site before wherein they sell eyeglasses and frames with a case really cheap.

Zenni Optical $8 Rx Eyeglasses are sold at such a price because there is no middleman and Zenni makes and manufactures their own products. Plus, since they are available online, they literally have no advertising budget.

Incredible stylish new frames from Zenni are available simply by browsing their website. You can find a lot of great styles and frames with pure titanium, acetate, stainless steel, with your choice of rimless, full rim or half-rimmed glasses.

Reading through Funetics

Henry just found this site called Funetics. It's a great way to help your kids in getting ready for kindergarten and teach them to learn through fun activities and games. I'm sure kids would have a lot of fun with it and learn at the same time. Keisha's already hooked on it, and I'm glad she's learning and having fun at the same time.

A Birthday Party at School

Keisha was really excited to go to school today. One of her classmates, Ashley, is celebrating her birthday at school. Since it's school policy that birthdays can only be celebrated during Fridays, I'm not sure exactly when her actual birthday is and how old she is now.

I went and bought a stuffed Blue from Blue's Clues as a gift for Keisha's classmate and wrapped it in a birthday wrapper. Since it was pretty big, Keisha was excited in carrying it to school. She also proudly displayed what she had in hand when we got to her classroom earlier today. Although we were minutes late, she didn't mind and just proceeded to her seat as if nothing was wrong.

When Keisha saw Blue, she said she also wanted one. I guess I'll probably end up buying one for her as well. But not today though. Maybe tomorrow, as I still have to go to work tonight and sleep early.

Mid-Quarter Exams

Keisha will be having her first ever Mid-Quarter exams on July 23 - 25. I'm not sure yet what the exam will cover, but my mom has been extensively reviewing her daily lessons at school. I know Keisha will do well, as I have complete faith in my daughter's academic skills. But since this being her first school and technically speaking, her first ever mid-quarter exam, I just can't help but be nervous and excited at the same time.

On a side note, Leslie also has some things of her own going. She's applying for a higher position at work, which I am also keeping my fingers crossed for. There's just so much going on lately. Whew. I think I need to sit back and relax. These girls are making me tense. Lol.

Dear Mark Herras

Dear Mark Herras,

Yesterday I went to SM Valenzuela with my mom, my dad, my grandmother, and my baby sister Nicole who just turned a year old last June 28 in the hopes of getting a glimpse of you and the rest of the cast of Joaquin Bordado. As the mall was jam packed to the point wherein you couldn't drop a pin amongst the crowd, we tried waiting for you in the vehicle entrance. We waited in hot temperatures for more than 2 hours to no avail. We tried going inside the mall again but we couldn't find a good spot so that I could see you, even though I was riding on my dad's shoulders.

My mom asked me if it was OK if we just ate pizza and forgot about the whole thing. I said yes, as I was hungry already. But I felt really sad whenever the crowds cheered as I knew you were there and we were inside Pizza Hut. I really wanted to see you. But despite my grandmother's best efforts, there was nothing much we could do.

As we were going home, crowds were surrounding the vehicle exit, and as we were about to walk home to get a ride home, we saw one of the show's cast, Eddie Garcia, waving at the people. My dad and my grandma got to shake his hand. We waited for several minutes more, and then we saw Pen Medina waving in the front seat of the van.

And that was when I saw you, Mark Herras. You were sitting at the back of the van wearing a white cap. My grandma carried me in her arms amidst people pushing each other and I knocked at the window on the back of your van. I was knocking really hard and calling out your name, and you could have at least waved or looked back and smile. But you didn't even bother to look at your fans, you jerk. I didn't know you were such a snob in real life when you seemed so friendly and nice on TV. My grandma and I chased your van for like 4 times before we gave up. Not once did you look. Not once did you bother to wave. You have seriously disappointed a four year old fan of yours who started watching you and your career through Starstruck.

And now, I end this letter/post by saying I hate you Mark Herras. You have lost me, my mom, my dad, my sister, and my grandma as your fans. All we were waiting for was for you to smile back or wave. What a jerk.

A former fan,

Keisha and Spongebob

Leslie was busy changing the templates on her blogs and this blog as well. I found it funny how she had put in effort re-adding the widgets and all when Keisha said she just wanted this Spongebob template back. I understand why Leslie would want a three column template so she can add ads, widgets, a calendar, and other stuff. But hey - we're making this blog for Keisha so it's her word that rules.

With all the effort my wife has put into this blog, I hope that Keisha will enjoy reading this when she grows up. Hmmm...this makes me think - what will we do when Keisha turns five this October?

HD Radio

New Florida and country music stations are available on HD radio. For those who are not yet familiar with HD radio (is there anyone, really, who is not yet familiar with HD radio?), it is way different from satellite radio. Although HD radio is digital radio, it is a ground based antenna radio - sort of like a digital version of FM and AM.

Some of the benefits of HD Radio is that FM stations can now be heard with CD-quality sound, AM stations can now be heard with FM-quality sound, and listeners can enjoy crystal-clear reception with no audio distortion. Best of all, since HD Radio is a free broadcast, all you have to do is get a new HD Radio receiver for your home or car.

There are also new country music stations that listeners can tune in to, as well as new artists and new personalities, new genres, new music from abroad, new kinds of programs you’ve never listened to before, and new experimental formats that no one has ever heard. Florida High Definition Radio stations are currently the hottest buzz among music lovers, and since there's no monthly fee, it just gets better and better.

House Plans

For people who are in the process of building a home, buying one, or already own one and are just doing some renovations, it would be great of one could find a house plan that utilizes all possible space. House Plans are usually designed to suit a home owner's preferences, taking into consideration the total land area, how many bedrooms you'd like, how many bathrooms as well, and your budget for the said project.

Home Plans need a lot of thought, as this is how your future home will be designed and it should also be strategically designed for kids, if you already have or are expecting, or are planning to have one. Your home, as designers often say, should be a reflection of the people living in it, and any home owner should do their share in designing the house plan. After all, you're the one whose going to spend years in it. Your thoughts and ideas on how the home should look like are very valuable and play an integral part in the design of your home.

Log home plans are also available, you just need to search for them thoroughly. For the more unconventional ones, I know designs and home plans to suit the home of your dreams are available online, some for a fee and some, if you're lucky, are for free.
