Bring your kids out so that they won’t feel alienated from the society

I just need to bring my kids out every once in a while so that they can have a little balance life aside from homeschooling, staying at home most of the time, watching TV and playing computer/gadget games. Even just at the park, it will help them a lot. I cannot wait for any miracle on finances before bringing them out. I just need to let them at least mingle with others so that they won’t feel alienated from the society. For us to save, I need to bring water and few snacks for them to eat/drink. It’s fun to see the kids when they are out. It’s fun to see them enjoy things outside the house besides letting them play online games or watching TV. Life is fun even if lack of finances, but it won’t prevent the family to go out sometimes. You don’t need hundreds of dollars to go out with kids. You just need to just think of bringing them out so that they won’t be surprised or so that they would learn how to place themselves in the crowd. Sometimes, it’s nice to have a family time outside the house like at the park or any other places good for kids.

Food for Friday after the Ash Wednesday

Today is the first Friday that my kids are not allowed to eat meat because of the Ash Wednesday. My son asked me if it will be for a long time that he will not eat meat. I told him that it’s just for few Fridays until the Lenten season will Read the rest of this entry »

Giving little gifts to the church for families this Thanksgiving

We visited the church again today to give our small food donation. It was not plenty but it was heartily given. I let my kids put the foods inside the paper bags coz I believe in that way, I can teach them compassion for others. And also, they love to give, so this is the training for them. After that, we went out of the church but when we were out I remember to visit the sanctuary and pray for several minutes. After that, we headed home. I am thankful to God for all the blessings in life. I do believe in sharing blessings to other people in that way, there will be more blessings to come in my life and in the life of my families.

It’s an adoration hour when we visited the church’s sanctuary

How to deal with rude people

I am an avid follower of LOA dot com and so today, I am so glad that I have the chance to read their article ‘9 comebacks for dealing with rude people’. The 9 things that they’ve mentioned are:
1. To say ‘Thank you’
2. To say ‘I appreciate your opinion’
3. To say ‘This conversation is over’
4. To say ‘Why did you feel it was necessary to ask that, and do you really think I should answer?’
5. To say ‘That almost hurt my feelings’
6. To say ‘You’re right’
7. To say ‘You always have something negative to add to the conversation, don’t you?’
8. To say ‘I love myself, and I love you as well’
9. Or just ‘Simply laugh’

I bet, if you do this, rude people will feel insulted without you embarrassing yourself similar to the rudeness of others. To learn more, do visit –

When you miss your mom and your family

I hate okra when I was a kid. My mama used to mix it with her hands in soft cooked rice. She said that she was doing it to help me eat more and so that I won’t be chewing the food coz it would just slide in my throat. The result was that every spoonful of rice mixed with okra, I would attempt to vomit. It was gross for me but I was helpless. Nothing I could do but ate it.

Have a Couples Massage and use Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine.

With all of the work that parents have and do for the family, they need to have their own date time – a time in which they can be together without their kids. It will be a great bonding for these two persons to stay healthy and balance. For me, wife and husband bonding is needed at least once a month or maybe four to five times a year or whatever that things that they agreed upon.

Speaking of which, I have friends who will be celebrating their wedding anniversary this September. I am thinking that a ‘couples massage’ will be a perfect gift for both of them. You may think that this is costly? I tell you, it is not as I can purchase a ‘couples massage’ of at least 60% off price with Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons. Like the offer from Serenity Day Spa which is supposedly $240 but with Groupon coupons, I will just pay $96. It is a cool savings for me and at the same time a great gift for my friends on their wedding anniversary. Surely, they will enjoy having a 50 minutes couples massage which is just at least 2 miles from their place. Another thing that I will be giving them is a dinner for two at their favorite restaurant.

I am so thankful for Groupon offers as this means great savings for me (and of course for you as well). What are your favorite offers in Groupon?
