I'm happy to say that we've made up.
Philbert and I are not talking to each other at the moment.
What started with something so small and trivial is now
starting to get so complicated. He did something and I got
hurt.The weird part is that whatever it is that he thinks
that I did which was beyond my control doesn't fit what
his reaction should have been (no he didn't hit me).
So instead of the usual confrontation I did something
that I never thought I could do which is to stop talking and
just shut up. I would see him and ignore him and last night
I left Joshwa with him and he put Joshwa to bed. I think the
silent treatment will give both us time to think and cool down.
Do I still love him? of course I do. Its just that sometimes
he can bring out the best in me can and also bring out the worst in me.
Im sure we will eventually talk to each other we live in
the same house. I do miss him a lot. I miss waking up
beside him and I miss him hugging and kissing me when he gets
off from work. I miss just talking to him and telling him stories
about how my day was and I do miss the corny jokes.I miss my best friend..
I know you'll probably think that why can't I just say I'm sorry and be done with it. Because with Philbert its not that easy you may say all the sorry and mean it but when he's hurt he is really hurt. He needs it to be him to make the first move.

My sister in law will be adopting a child from
the Philippines. Well i'm not surprised because
she loves Cyrill like her own child and now she
has decided to take the plunge and start the
adoption process. I'm going to help her through
it I mean I'm going to do research so that she'll
know what to do and what to expect. Thinking of
adoption makes me think about Andrea. I miss her a
lot and I feel so bad that I couldn't fight for her.
I wish I had the money and the resources so that I
too can adopt her.Everyone thinks i've moved on from
that experience but I haven't. I think about her
everyday and I hope that she is well and I cry when
I hear that she's not being treated as well as she
should. But I will never trade that experience of
being her mom even for a while.. for a short time.
No one can replace her.. I could have kids of my own
but still my longing for her and concern will always
be there. Maybe someday soon God will make a way.
Someday soon....

I can't stop gushing about my husband Philbert has been so amazing
he has been cooking, taking care of Joshwa & putting Joshwa to bed.
He has really stepped up to the plate and took care of things.
When I am unable to do so. I'm thankful that we had a chance
to move and start over in all honesty this has saved our marriage.
Of course sometimes we have our moments where we fight because
no one can upset me like he can. But at the end of the day
no one can comfort me and make me laugh like he can. When we lost
the baby I was beside myself I was crying and he held me and
let me cry he didn't need to say anything. I knew I was going
to be okay because he's here and whatever crazy thing I do
he puts up with me and my moods. I know that our kids are so lucky
to have Philbert as a dad.


I won! I won! I won a magazine from
I joined the trivia contest and I won. Mababaw lang
naman ako eh. Natutuwa lang ako na sumali ako at
nasagot ko nang tama yung questions nya.

Will take a photo of the magazine when i receive it.

Joshwa is sick. He had to stay home from school because he has a cold.
The teacher bluntly told me that if he has a cold he should stay home
because the school is not a daycare center.So despite the fact that I'm not
feeling well I have to take care of a sick child and risk catching the
cold.(I hope not)

Went to the doctor today and had a PAP.
To be honest ayoko mag pa pap smear.
I know its important pero something
about the feeling that you are vulnerable.
Half naked and all.. Will come back again
on May 23. By that time I'm done with the
First Trimester. Medyo makakahinga na ako
ng maluwag.

Finally did a LAYOUT using my Basic Grey Papers.
Will finish it off tomorrow then upload it.

I hope I could more..

Philbert's new task at home is to vacuum. Since he didn't like
the old one that we had he said that he'd go to a friend's house
to borrow a vacuum cleaner. 2 hours later he came back with this
item. He was insistent that it was a vacuum cleaner and I said
that it was a leaf blower.

I couldn't help it I was laughing so hard when I saw him trying to use it on the floor. Ayaw kasi makinig eh. I told him why didn't you look at the photo on
the box and he was saying that since has the word vacuum and the prize was reasonable he decided to buy one. I'm a bad wife but I couldn't live it down.
We just went back to the store to return it and just get a new one.

Okay sige na nga kung sa kanya may nangyaring nakakatawa sa akin din. I was taking a nap when I woke up Joshwa was trying to put an apple on my mouth. Yes gagawin akong lechon ni Joshwa. When I said Joshwa what are you doing? he handed me an apple
and gave me the sweetest smile.

I'm loving the new Microsoft Word 2007. I could write my blog entries here and it does the uploading. Cool huh!!


Sa isang egroup na sinalihan ko may isang miyembro na naglabas ng sama ng loob laban sa kapamilya ng asawa nya. Ang kaso maski palitan pa nya ang pangalan nung taong kinakasamaan nya ng loob alam naman nung iba kung sino tinutukoy nya. At alam nung tao na yun na yung tinutukoy nya ay kasali din sa grupo na yun. Naawa tuloy ako dun sa tinutukoy nya kasi wag naman dapat ganun.Kung may sama ka nang loob diretsuhin mo na lang. Nakakalungkot dahil lang sa gusto nating makasakit nang iba makakasakit din tayo ng ibang tao na di naman kasali sa gulo. Naisip ko lang kung ang mga tao di na lang nag reklamo at gawan na lang ng solusyon ang problema gaganda siguro ang mundo natin.

You Are 17% Bitchy

You are practically an angel - both on the inside and outside.
You try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and you're even tolerant of bitchiness in others!


I'm bored! Tons of things to do and yet I don't want to do it. Philbert isn't here its just me and Joshwa. Wanted to see Airees and Pepel tomorrow but since I'm at the mercy of our driver the subject is up for discussion. They'll be in Pasadena tomorrow so around 33 miles is a bit far from where we live

Dinner is quietly boiling it's early around 3 pm but it's a tricky recipe. I'm cooking Lechon Kawali. Sana wag pumalpak.. Akala ko naman its something as simple as frying it. But according to you have to let it Simmer for 75 minutes with the garlic, onion, water and peppercorns and then you have to leave it alone for 1 hour and wait for it to dry. So by the time that its finished mga 6pm siguro include the other things that goes into the preparation.

I've finished reading another book Holly by Jude Deveraux. I bought 40 of her books from EBAY and the others I bought from AMAZON. I just love her stories on the Montogomery & Taggert Family. I don't want to read something heavy and depressing at the moment so her books are okay. I also ordered some books by Judith Mcnaught. Puro romance na lang muna. I'm a hopeless romantic I believe that love conquers all and that the two main characters will be together happily ever after. Kaya nga ayoko na magbasa ng books ni Nicholas Sparks kakalungkot eh I know in reality na di naman lahat nagkakatuluyan pero gusto ko talaga happy ending.

I remember watching telenovelas and there was a time na mga pinapapalabas sa TV di nagkakatuluyan parang nanawa tuloy ako manuod. Speaking of telenovelas I stopped watching Maria Flordeluna (because I'm disturbed by the plots and subplots ) Palimos ng Pag-Ibig because ayoko nang acting ni Rica. Di naman ganun ginawa ni Vilma eh. I know its supposed to be based on the movie pero just the same I keep comparing it to the movie.

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.
An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.
You are also good at remembering information and convicing someone of your point of view.
A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.

You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.
You Are Very Happy

Your life is totally together, and you enjoy every day.
And you don't need a quiz to tell you that!
You know how to find pleasure in the little things...
And even when life isn't so great, you have a good sense of perspective.

What is it with this pregnancy.. I'm always super hungry..
Not just being hungry pero yung feeling mo na parang
3 days kang di kumain when in fact your last meal
was 2 hours ago. I watch what I eat pero grabe talaga gutom ko.
Sabi ng mama drink water pag feeling ko gutom ako
pero baka masama yun.

Philbert went home with manggang hilaw and bagoong.
I swear di ako mahilig sa manggang hilaw lalo na sa bagoong.
Pero kinain ko talaga sya and naubos ko yung bagoong
ayoko na kainin yung mangga. Weird ..

Tomorrow I have a meeting sa school ni Joshwa.
We will be discussing his transition to another
school. Hopefully it will happen by August.

My paper packs are here YEY!!! pero sa sobrang
ganda parang ayaw ko gamitin. Hinimas himas ko
inamoy amoy, pinisil pisil.. Iniisip ko paano
gagamitin..Ayoko gupitin..

Aawayin ako ni Philbert pag di ko na ginamit
mahilig daw ako mag hoard tapos ayoko
gamitin. Sabi nya wag na daw muna ako bumili..
He says that I have so much pero a girl
can NEVER have to much scrapbook materials.
Some women love shoes, some love bags mine
are scrapbook materials. Philbert threatened to
call my mom pag di ako tumigil mag shopping
ng pang scrapbook. I said okay di na ako bibili..
Then under my breath I said for this month.
Di ko na lang sinabi na may 2 kits ako parating every month
for 6 months. I hope my mom isn't reading
this otherwise i'll hear an earful..

I found my BG Supplier at
The owner was so nice to accomodate me. When I ordered naubusan
na ako but she was able to pre-order some papers and was able to send
my orders right away. 3 Packs are coming tomorrow Blush, Perhaps
and Stella Ruby. 1 will be coming in May the Pheobe collection.

By the way we might be having twins.. Not yet that sure but the heartbeat
is strong and unusual for a single baby and is definitely moving
a lot. The doctor says I need to get an ultrasound from another
clinic kasi wala silang ultrasound dun sa isang clinic na refer
nila it's $250 ang mahal. Will post the ultrasound results
as soon as I have it.

Joshwa is learning so many things leaps and bounds
Sometimes cute things like he could now type
an apology. Last Saturday because
he misbehaved his dad said to him while
he was on the computer.
Philbert: Joshwa di ka ba mag sorry kay daddy.
Joshwa opens the notepad and types
Daddy Philbert sorry lang ako.

Pero while cute yun may ginawa din sya kalokohan
he did something on the computer and played with
the volume. So ngayon iba na boses na lumalabas
boses ka boses ni Mahal seriously dont think na ang sama ko its
not intend to discriminate in any way pero kung imported
sabihin na lang natin na boses ng Chipmunks.
Puede mo pagtyagaan but you can really distinguish
the difference. Because of that Philbert is itching to
reformat the computer. Ayoko muna kasi I want to
wait till my ABS-CBN subscription will be
renewed para dun ko sa laptop mapanood. Kaunting
tiis na lang naman.

Im just so giddy my Scarlett's Letter by Basic Grey arrived today.

Was able to get it at $18.45 shipping
included. I found a website na $14.40 lang yung Basic
Grey tapos $4.05 ang shipping. Unlike sa ibang website
na $18 tapos shipping nila is nasa $4 plus tax pa so magiging
mga $23 na siguro sya. Excited lang ako . I can hear my
mom talking to me Anak ang Gastos mo.. Pero for me
these are just perks that I get. I do the budgeting so the
extras I can use for my scrapbooking. Kaya nga staggered
ang pag ordered ko para di naman masakit sa bulsa.

I was thinking of buying a Cricut.

Major Pagtitipid na naman gagawin ko nito
Let us see Cricut or Car Insurance, Cricut or
Grocery Shopping or Cricut or Gas Money.
hahahahha..I could hear my husband saying let me see
Cricut today and no scrapbook shopping for 6 months.

Tapos excited din ako kasi padating na ito next week.


Blush Collection

These two will be coming in May pa..

I pre-ordered it na.
