A Tiring Day Today

By on January 15, 2008

Jan. 15, 2008

Ok, since my husband is suspended and doesn’t have work today, he suggested us to go to SM Manila with Julie. So this was what happened this day:

I woke up at around 9:00AM and checked on my DailyClicks account and saw a pretty good earnings and so I waited until it became 15th of January in the admin’s country, which was approximately 1:00PM here in Philippines for the cashout. While I was waiting, I did my daily routine for baby Julie: make her a bowl of Cerelac (baby food), bathe her, then dressed her for our “family outing”. Then I watched TV for few minutes then took a bath myself. As I saw our clock stroke 1:00PM, I ran towards my laptop and requested for a cashout from DailyClicks! It was worth $18! Weee! So after that, I also posted in my favorite forum: Pinoy Money Talk, as I waited my husband to finish bathing. After all the hustle and bustle, we finally managed to get ourselves together and got ready to take off and go to SM Manila. But first, we needed to stop by Metrobank to deposit some payments to a business “partner” then go to Manila City Hall to file a late registration for Julie’s birth certificate. It was kind of tedious at first since there were a lot of people in the line and there were added requirements after we got in front of the line, but after that, I gave out a big sigh of relief. FINALLY! I will get my baby’s birth certificate.

Ok enough of the birth certificate thing. So after that, we went to SM Manila (AT LAST). We headed to Kenny Roger’s Roasters and ate a scrumptious meal, it makes me drool just thinking about it. LOL. Then we went to the department store to the toys area, where we played the stuff toys that were displayed with Julie. I could see her face light up as she gave a big smile when she saw a violet elephant similar to the one she has (look at the picture in this post), but only wearing pyjamas. I think she recognized the elephant that’s why she gave that big smile! My husband and I laughed so hard that we gave that elephant a name: Perky’s cousin! LOL!

So after few rounds around the toys area, 3 of us got exhausted and decided to go home. Well, we didn’t actually did a lot of stuffs a while ago, but it was sure one heck of a day with baby Julie!

My Baby Turned 6 Months Today!

By on January 14, 2008

My baby’s 6 months old!!! She’s getting bigger and cuter each day! She knows how to ask me or other people to carry her. You’ll know if she raises her two arms and stretches them out to you. But the thing is, she’s very persistent when it comes to carrying her. If she wants you to carry her, you MUST carry her, or she’ll shout and cry like hell. LOL. She also plays more often now than drink her milk. Yikes! But I think this is normal for babies, and I do want my baby to be normal.

But I’m happy that she’s a healthy girl. She did get sick once but it was just a minor runny nose, and it didn’t last that long. That time I learned how to massage her body with ointment. It felt good both to her and me, and it felt much better when I saw her smile after that. My baby’s smile just took away all my worries and tiredness from the day’s routine.

I’m just glad everything turned out quite better than I expected, except for my husband’s work. Glad that Baby Julie Rayne came to my life. I love you baby Julie!

Husband Got Suspended

By on

My husband has the pride of a spoiled king who thinks he should always be right regardless of his position in his work. He just doesn’t care who he messes with, just as long as he thinks he’s right, he’ll probably shout the hell out of you.

My over-blessed-with-pride husband had a fight with his boss at work and even shouted at him in front of his resident manager three days ago. Sure enough, after that incident, he didn’t go to work two days ago. Yesterday, he went to work and found out that he’s suspended up to the 15th of January. That means that he just wasted a lot of salary.

This wasn’t his first time, and not even his second time. I just hate his pride that would sometimes costs his job. It’s not that easy to look for a job mind you, and I don’t think he even cares. If he doesn’t care, well I do! He promised me not so long ago that he’ll stop initiating a fight with any of his co-workers, and I think he did a great job. He did keep his promise but he never mentioned “not fighting with his boss” right? *sarcasm*

Whatever his motive is, I don’t know. As far as my own motive is concerned, I want my parents to be proud of me and my husband, which I guess will never come true, and my family to have money saved for future use.
