Winter is in full effect specially in MN. I read in the news that MN has already gotten 16" of snow. Now that is a lot of snow. If I was there I would be miserable, my kids would be happy due to the snow. All I would be worrying about is the electricity going off. And when electricity goes off, no heater and that would never do. With the snowstorm wrecking havoc, it comes to no surprise how many accidents have happened. To those in the upper Midwest I hope they are keeping warm and safe. To help keep warm  check out the  best selection of patagonia coats
. It's  imperative that people living in a state constantly visited by snow to invest on a good coat for winter. We are in DE and Invested on a couple of coats/jackets. My most favorite coat is what I call my granny coat. It's length is down to my ankle and it has a hood to keep my head and ears warm. It's perfect for a cold freezing day when I have to walk to the bus stop to pick up my oldest. My prayers go out to the people in the Midwest. I hope they keep warm and safe.


It's been a rough day so far. The other day we found out that the drain to our washing machine is clogged. We came home to find out that the laundry room is flooding and it went into our family. Thankfully it didn't reach the area rug. Today, a plumber came to the house to see what the problem was and if they could unclog the drain. Unfortunately the plumber didn't have the right equipment. Can you believe that? We paid $75 for him to use a drain snake and he couldn't even fix it. What got us frustrated was he only had that one equipment. My MIL had to call the home warranty. We got a credit back for $75. We called another company and they a suppose to come tomorrow. If they don't have the right equipment again,they would have to cut through the wall to get access to the pipe. We are looking at around $295.00. That is a money we really don't have right now. MIL laundry has been in the washing machine for a day and a half now. I had to do something, I needed to do laundry as well or my kids will be going to school naked,lol. So what I did was Jerry rigged something so that we could use the washing machine. It doesn't look pretty but it worked. We got the water to drain outside the house. How I did I do it? I'll keep it a secret,lol..


So many things to look forward in the year 2013. First off, my husband and I will be celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary, Second I will be planning my trip to the Philippines. I am looking forward to my trip back home. It will be my first time to meet my sisters daughter, to visit my grandma after my grandfather death, to visit his resting place and also be a part of my cousins wedding. My cousin and I were like two peas in a pod. Growing up we were constantly getting into trouble, all you hear was both our names everyday.

Ever since I fond out she was getting married I have been talking to her about her plan for her wedding. She has asked me for her opinion on the color motiff, flowers and also the wedding photographer. I got so excited talking to her about her wedding that I couldn't help myself finding out more about weddings. I spent lot of time looking at videos of wedding, photos,flowers and wedding dresses. I even checked out philadelphia wedding photography.That I checked out for myself when my husband and I would eventually have a church wedding or maybe just a renewal of vows. It doesn't hurt to plan ahead. All I know for certain that pictures is one of the best way to capture a specially moment. And with a special moment like a wedding it deserves to have the best.


Day 2

I am just now getting back into the wave of things. Its been a wet, foggy day in my part of the world. At least its not freezing cold like in MN where they have gotten a total of 16" of snow. I would hate to be there right now. Sure my kids eyes would probably get so big seeing the huge amount of snow accumulation and would want to dive in it. My kids have been asking when we will be getting snow. The last big snow day they had was 2 years ago and they loved it.Not so much for mama and daddy. My dryer was constantly running, floor had to be constantly wiped and keeping track of the kids winter suits and gloves. While daddy had to do the hard labor of plowing the snow not just in front of out house but that also includes out neighbors house and half of the cul de sac. Good thing hubby has a snow thrower, its been a good investment so far.

It's just the beginning of the day and I wonder what is in store for me. I know! More cleaning, and cleaning and cleaning. It never ends when you have kids! So I am getting my butt of this chair and what needs to be done. Be back in a jiffy!
