It's been a long time since I have updated this blog. To much of everything finally got to me and I crash and burned. I got so swamped with laundry, taking care of my kids, this blog, dropping entrecard. This is the real world and my brain just went haywire, I needed to prioritize and try to relax and stay away from the computer as much as I could. At nigh after my kids have gone to sleep, I am usually in front of the computer dropping EC. I neglected my husband and I was staying up way to late. I stopped dropping EC and for that I apologize to my droppers for not returning your drops. I guess I was also peeved at Mr. G for penalizing me and taking my PR. For now I'm back but I'm going to try and take things slow and hope that I gain my readers and PR back.

For the past few days I have been neglecting my blog and not really keeping up with whats been happening in our lives. I have not even posted pictures of Kayla's 6th birthday. This was last Aug 30, 2009. We had a surprise birthday party for her, she had no idea since she was at her mommy's and she was just picked up by Ralph. Her friends were already at the house by the time they got back and we all stayed in the dinning room to surprise her. She was shocked and so happy to see her friends and that we were celebrating her birthday. It was not a big party whatsoever since it was going to be a school day the next morning but it was enough for the celebrant and her friends to have some fun.

The birthday girl blowing out her candles while her sister tried to blow with her from the other side of the table,lol..
From( L-R ) Kelly, Tracy, Kayla and Tamara.

Even if it was just about 2 hours she still had tons of fun and had a great time with her friends. We love you Manang Kayla (big sister) and hope you stay as beautiful and as good as you are.

I guess almost every one has heard and seen how Taylor Swift was rudely interrupted by Kanye West at the VMA Awards night. I felt bad for her and Beyonce was gracious in her ways when she shared her moment with her. Watching the red carpet at the awards night was something else to behold. From elegant dresses and gowns to out of this world getup or outfit as you may call it. Of course there was a lot of sparkle coming not just from the women but also the men. Some of the artist have what you would call bling bling jewelry. If your into big and sparkly or just want to be noticed that this is the kind of jewelry just for you. I'm not really a tickler for jewelries but I won't mind getting some bling on.


What a bummer that Summer is over. Yesterday the pool was officially closed for the season. It would have been closed Monday but Ralph had so many things to do. The pool was ready by Wednesday with all the chemicals in and ready for the winter. All we needed to do yesterday was cover the pool. Sounds easy but its a far more annoying thing to do. At least we finally got the pool closed and hopefully when the next pool opening it wont be bad. After doing all that was supposed to be done we headed off to our favorite Chinese buffet restaurant. How I love eating out buffet style, you get to have your fill with anything and its cheaper. We came home with a full belly but not without any regrets about eating way way to much. Oh well, life will move on and I will eventually loose a couple of pounds. When or how that I do not know....

In 5 more months Ralph and I will be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary. Until now I still can't believe that we found each other and that we are still together. Its been no secret that He and I meet over the net and that our romance was not your typical one. I never really thought I would find someone I could love, live and have children with. Love and Romance is a big part of our lives. For those looking for love there is a place that you may find it,west virginia chat
. Where meeting people is fun and easy with instant messaging, web cams, live chats, email and many more. Love is easy to find if you know where to look and give yourself that chance like I did.

For the past couple of weeks I have been experiencing pain on my lower back as well as on both my knees. The only thing I could think about that could have contributed to my knee pain was when I fell a couple of times in July. On my birthday I was trying to really hustle up with Kayla's lunch and I fell on both my knees in the process of bringing it outside to the pool. Before you guys think I'm a big klutz let me explain that Ralph came inside the house dripping wet and got my floor wet as well. I slipped on a wet hardwood floor. I was in so much pain I could not move for a minute. Last Wednesday I finally went to our family doctor to have my knees checked and I wanted to know what was really wrong with my back. The doctor wont really know unless I get an
X-ray and so I will get one this Monday. I will also need to make an appointment to see a Chiropractor for my back. I told my husband that I'm falling apart,heheheh.... I just hope its nothing major. Wish me luck!!

The month of August has been full of storks delivering babies. Really I probably knew about 4 women who delivered last month. Every time I found out that one of those babies were already born I felt happiness, excitement and jealousy at the same time. Its no secret that Ralph and I have been wanting to have another child for over a year now. My heart breaks every single month I get my menstrual period proving that were still not conceiving. But I know in my heart that things happen for a reason and I should just be thankful for what I have now.

There is no Price to good health, that is just so true. Now that I have a daughter it make me more aware of my health, her health in short my families health. Lately I have been feeling all this aches and pains in my body that got me scared. What if something is wrong with me? What's going to happen to my family. Will I see the day my kids graduate, get married and have kids? It got me thinking about really doing something to safeguard my health. C'elle the worlds only leading service that makes use of women's menstrual cycle to help collect and preserve valuable stem cells. Before, I have always thought that our menstrual cycle was just there to remind us that were women but now I have a new outlook. Its there for a reason and Its to help us try and preserve life. Its been known that stem cells have many uses and benefits including finding treatment for disorders like diabetes, breast cancer and many more. As a mother we put ourselves last and think about our families first, its time we put ourselves first. Our health is more important than any riches in the world. Order now for a chance to have a safeguard on our families health.


Crab Fest!!! A week ago I asked my MIL to take me to the Farmers Market so I can get my crabs. I just went in there to get it and zipie do dah right out the door after. I got a dozen crabs all to myself since both Ralph and my MIL have had enough of crabs while they were still living in New Jersey. As soon as we got home I immediately took a pan and dumped my breakfast/lunch/dinner to start cooking. My mouth was watering since I haven't had crabs in a long time. Eating crabs bring back memories back home. Even if its a very tedious task eating it I still enjoy it. It took me 3 days to finish that dozen crabs together with Kaitlyn. I found out that she loves crabs but I think she is a little bit allergy to it since her pepe got red after she had crabs. Next time I want to try those King Crabs the one I keep on seeing on DEADLIEST CATCH.

Picture above was taken on Kayla's first day of school as a first grader last Aug 19,2009. She is flanked on both sides by her friends Kelly on the left and Tamara on the right. We woke up to a nice warm morning, Kayla woke up excited about going back to school and seeing Kelly and Tamara at the bus stop. She was adamant about making us take the puppies to the bus stop to see her off. Of course we obliged her thinking how hard could it be. It was difficult trying to make two puppies walk while walking a 22 month old and a 6 yr old,lol...The puppies got so excited at the bus stop seeing a lot of kids and adults that we had to keep them away from the crowd. Ralph and I really didn't get to savor the moment of getting her off for the first time in this school year because of the puppies.

The picture below is of Kayla getting off the bus that same day, she was still brimming with excitement and was extra happy to see her best friend Tracy at the bus stop with us. She gave her baby sister a big hug first then us. Kids have so much energy that I just want to bottle up that energy and drink it up as the day goes.
The last is of the girls walking home hand in hand. Tracy is the one in pink, Kaitlyn in the middle and Kayla in blue. They was just walking and babbling away like they had not seen each other for so long. Kids are so funny.
