Do you have any reoccurring dream?

I had so many reoccurring dreams and all of them have to do with being late for work.  I think that is my greatest fear ever.  I don’t like to be late and just thinking that I have to wake up an hour late from the usual would really torment me.  Imagine yourself sleeping peacefully and when you wake up you found out that you are and hour late.  I have this reoccurring dream and in my dream I would really think of something viable reason to tell my boss why I did not go to work.  I think this dream only signify that I needed my job and without it I would feel lost.  I think I could not imagine myself just being a plain housewife and wait for my husband and my children to come home.  I think my experience has taught me not to rely on someone.  I never really want to feel helpless, to rely on someone to give you money without making your own.  I think having a job or having your own source of income will give empowerment to you.

It feels so good to decide for your own when you don’t have to ask your husband to buy you something.  I think it is also in my nature to do something with my life because when you are married you just can’t rely on someone to get things done because it can be so depressing. You just feel your heart hurt because of your failed expectations.  Do you ever experience telling your husband to make some shelves so that you can arrange your things and how it feels to wait for the work to get done?  To lessen my failed expectations I just have to make it myself.  That is what it feels like to be a working mom.  I have to get out there in the rat race to get something done with our life.  It is so tiring to complain to your spouse and tell him his shortcomings because like him you are also capable to do something to improve your life.

How to be a better mind reader

Recently I’ve read in the newspaper column about a letter from a wife, she was asking for advice about her problem with her husband.  She was complaining that her husband comes home without saying a word to her.  Her mind would churn out to a lot of possibilities, whether she has said something wrong, or something happened at work. She would ask herself if something happen between him and his family or friends. She wanted to ask him but she just doesn’t have the nerve to ask her husband.  She will just look for clues, in his posture and tone of voice.  She just wanted to read his mind and she was asking the columnist how to become a better mind reader.

The columnist who was a doctor told her to don’t ever guess.  When you are in doubt you just simply ask.  I think she was right in saying this that is because when you are misread by someone close to you it would create distance.  I think couples should at all times be open to each other.  The doctor also told her to give time.  The best way to learn about someone is to spend more time with them.  Focus on the other person not yourself. Often times, we tend to look for what is in stake for us. This need makes us unable to see what are the other person’s needs and desires.  Lastly all you have to do is ask.  Say in words what you feel. Chances are your husband will do the same.  After all, being expressive could be contagious.  When you are in doubt, simply ask.

Getting a credit card

I think it would be nice to have this card but I'm just afraid that if I do, I might end up just like my mother, having a lot of debts. I think compulsive buying is really hard to avoid especially if you are like me who likes to go to the mall.  I really do like to go to malls with my son especially on weekends because he likes to play there.  He likes to play in the playground and play station with race car games.  I can just imagine myself roaming around the mall with the license to shop and with a credit line at hand.  I think it would be wise for me not to get one instead I just have to save and buy something when I have money to spend.  I think having a credit card involves so much discipline because if you don't watch what you spend, you might end up having a lot of debts. Anyway there are also advantages of credit cards that is, if you have enough discipline to spend wisely.  One important advantage is that if you have a buy and sell business, you can use credit card as a means to purchase your initial capital.  The next one is that if you have an emergency to buy or pay something and you don't have cash at the moment it would really come handy.              

Having a great time at Pearl Farm Davao

my favorite place in th resort....pool

Last Saturday we had a company summer outing at Pearl Farm Davao.  I nearly missed it because a night before my daughter had a fever and it did persist in the morning.  Anyway last year I did not attend our company outing because my daughter also got sick and was hospitalized but this year I still decided to join.  Before I went to Davao that day I have instructed her nanny to check her temperature from time to time and let her take in paracetamol every five hours.  To ensure that she will give her paracetamol at the right time I've jot down in the calendar on the wall what time she will intake the medicine.  I've also called her when we got there.  We traveled early in the morning because we were instructed by our colleagues that we have to get there before 7:30 am and travel time was a minimum of one and a half hours.  We got there on time and I was so relieved that there was a free brewed flowing coffee and sandwich waiting for us there because I was so hungry.  We skipped breakfast that day to arrive early.  We had a great time that day and I swim in the pool the whole day.

A Wedding Invitation

Today one of our co-workers has given us an invitation for his wedding. Weddings are really one of the memorable events of a couple and it is best to make the experience as wonderful as ever. I also remembered my wedding well nearly five years ago and I made all the preparations. I am six month pregnant that time and I want the wedding to be the most wonderful event of my life but I don’t want to spend a big amount of money on it considering that we are expecting our first baby during that time. Looking back I don’t have any regrets because I’ve made sure that every thing looks extravagant but we spent less for it. I’ve had us made a specialized cheap invitations. I have personally purchased the special scented paper, ribbon and envelope to be used so that we would only pay for the print and design. The wedding entourage gowns were provided by my aunt who was a dressmaker.

My wedding dress was a gift from my mom although I personally pick the design. The church fee was also a gift from my relatives and I have thanked them well during our wedding that time. The wedding tokens were also a gift from one of my aunt and I was very grateful during that time because our relatives made our wedding as blissful and inexpensive as ever. The rest of our needs such as videos, pictures, cakes, flowers and wedding venue was a wedding package from one of our best hotel in the city and I can truly say that it is affordable and worth every penny.

The Manny Pacquiao and Clottey fight

Last Sunday I watched Pacquiao and Clottey fight and I was kind of disappointed.  Manny did win after the twelve round but I was more disappointed on the performance of Clottey because he always covered his face. I think it would be great if he showed more of his moves than just covering his face. Anyway it was still wonderful knowing that once again a Filipino won the boxing fight it makes us proud. I think Manny will soon retire because I’m kind of afraid that he might hurt himself someday but it was still nice to see him still fight in the near future.  I think he is the best Filipino fighter of all time.

A more organized document management

All business enterprise always handles documents in a systematic way because otherwise it can really be messy and will really take time and more effort to make the necessary reports.  Reports are very important in any business enterprise because it is a major indicator whether the business is doing well or not.  It can also help in maximizing the revenue because it can figure out what are the weak and the strong points in your business with the key data in the prepared reports.  There are various software in the internet that can help any business in handling their documents such as  document workflow management

This soft ware aims to provide uniform keeping of documents and any requisites of the document.  The assignment of document’s responsible person and document parties as well as the control of responsible person.  In our workplace we also have software similar to DocumentLite that is accessible in the web browser.  It is very accessible to us because the company I work with has many branches located in different geographical location in the Philippines.  We can view and share necessary documents and updates from our head office in Manila.   We can also view various reports in our branch as well as the company as a whole.

Earthquake in Chile

The newspapers cover for today is the horrifying after effect of the earthquake in Chile.  A picture of the collapsed building in Concepcion is in the cover clearly states the destructive effect of the earthquake.  Well, earthquake is not new to the Philippines because like Chile we are located within the ring of fire.  I can still remember when the greatest earth quake hit the Philippines way back in 1990. It was a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Luzon.  I was just in 6th grade that time and even if it was far from our home town I could see in TV and newspapers the fatalities of the earthquake that killed so many people and destroyed many buildings and concrete roads.  I hope and pray it could not happen in our country again.  Last week we experience earthquake here in Mindanao but it was just mild and I think it was the same time the earthquake hit Chile, still I was relieved that there was no Tsunami in Davao Oriental because my Grandma resides there.  Earlier Philvocs reported that Davao Oriental is one of the areas where there will be a possible tsunami.
