It's super hot and humid these days especially during the afternoon. It can be quite a challenge to sleep. However, if one is soo sleepy and sleep-deprived, that's me by the way, I can still sleep through everything.

Times like these, I want to take a dip in the pool. Or be in the beach.

Anyhow, must try to sleep again. Need to report for work later in the office. I won't working from home until tomorrow.

Yesterday, the kids and I bonded over lunch at Jollibee, their favorite. We were joined by their grandma (my mom), Aileen, my niece, and Russell and May. It was good timing too that we were there because the Jollibee mascot was in attendance for a party. My kids were jumping with joy when they saw Jollibee but they didn't like it when we went near the mascot LOL!

My kids are easy to please. They are excited whenever we go out and go to SM and they will immediately request for Jollibee. We just had lunch and I was able to buy shirts for Jeremy as it was on sale, buy 1 take 1 :) I also did my grocery and I was feeling pretty good even if I came directly from shift and haven't slept yet.

When we got home, there was power outage which affected a lot of areas. And there I was hoping I could get some decent sleep before my shift in the evening. Amidst the hot weather, I managed to sleep for a few minutes and then I was awakened by the news that power has been restored. Woot! I got a few hours of sleep and that works for me. Better than nothing, right? And now I'm almost done with my shift and will sleep again after.

That's how my Saturday went. Simple joys of watching my children laugh and just being happy. And of course, getting quality rest is another :)

Bruno Mars in Araneta Coliseum

I am so looking forward to April 8. Bruno Mars will have a concert in Araneta Coliseum and of course, I already got tickets! Woot woot! I bought mine back in February and I checked last week and the concert is sold out.

Here's my favorite song from Bruno Mars



This will do for now until I get to hear him sing this live.

Of birthdays and moons

Today is March 19. It is the feast day of St. Joseph. The Super Moon can be seen on the night sky as well. And most of all, it is my birthday :)

So far, I know 4 people whom I share my birthday with. A very happy birthday to us, Mel, Juboy, Paul, and Amy!

Cheers to another year of our exciting lives!

Retreat!

As promised, I'll give feedback to S&R Members's Treat. However, it's going to be super short and simple as we didn't even get the chance to get inside and experience the sale. LOL! We went there last Wednesday, first day of the sale, around 9:30am. There was heavy traffic going to the Congressional Ave. branch and yes, it was because of the customers who were having difficulties finding parking space. We were going to brave it but to our horror, there was a long, snake-like queue of customers outside waiting for their turn to get inside too! Tsk. That was it. We retreated and maybe will go back today or even tomorrow. Hopefully the turnout of customers wouldn't be the same as the previous days. But then, I'm praying that there will still be good deals left for us. LOL

By the way, TGIF :)

Happy 2nd birthday, Jamie!

Happy 2nd birthday, Jamie!

Before the day ends, I would like to greet my pretty Jamie a happy 2nd birthday! We love you so much baby and we are very happy for the happiness you bring to us everyday. We didn't have a big celebration today but I'm sure you'll enjoy tomorrow when the whole family goes swimming :D

I love you, baby! :)

I'm back online! Our dsl connection went back up last Sunday and I worked at home again since yesterday. Whew! It was such a relief! I realized I was so dependent on the internet for a lot of things and mostly for work, of course.

Just a few days from now and Jamie and I will celebrate our birthdays. We have a pool party this Sunday for her birthday and I'm sure the kids will enjoy. It's officially the start of summer although it also rains on some days. I already shopped for the things we need for the party and will just buy a few more items before the big day :)

Hubby and I are also looking forward to S&R Members's Treat on March 16-20. We went to the October sale last year and there were a lot of good deals. I hope we can go there early and take advantage of great deals but I'm sure there will be LOTS and LOTS of people and we better be prepared to stand in the queue for hours.

I'll post again to share my experience :D

DSL downtime

I haven't been able to blog these past few days because I have no freaking internet connection at home! Grrrr. PLDT had the gall to temporarily restrict my access even though I already paid my bill and there was no previous balance. Now, I have to wait for them to reactivate the account and for the meantime, I have to work at a co-worker's place. Good thing her house is just 15 minutes away so it's not much of a hassle traveling to her place.

I am fervently hoping that my connection gets reactivated at least until Monday so that I can work from home again. Otherwise, I'll bug them again and mind you, it takes at least 20mins before I can get a rep on the line. If I am not lucky, the rep will just hang up and I will have to dial again. Sigh. I am so stressed and honestly, if it's not so difficult to get a DSL connection with another company, I would have transferred. I guess for now, all I can do is patiently wait and hope they keep their promise to give me back my internet access very soon.

Happy weekend!
