The Gift Of A Meal

If it’s difficult deciding on a gift for someone you love, then consider meal gift baskets. These aren’t the traditional baskets with lotion or soap in them. They have ingredients for a meal or even a few gift cards for restaurants. There are numerous ways to make a meal basket depending on what the person enjoys and how much money you want to put in the basket.

A breakfast basket is an idea for someone who is up early in the morning or someone who enjoys making breakfast for the family. You can include anything from muffin mix to pancake mix. Include a bottle of pancake syrup, a spatula, coffee and a mug or two. If you want to make a basket with lunch items, then you could put a small loaf of bread inside, jars of peanut butter and jelly and a few other items that are easy to fix for lunch. This is where you should think about what the person can eat or what the person enjoys. Children might like macaroni and cheese while older adults might enjoy soup.

Making a basket with meals for dinner can be a bit more complicated. This is the kind of basket that you can make with a few gift cards to favorite restaurants, especially if the person lives alone or doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. Spaghetti, sauce and similar items can be included in the basket. A meal basket is an idea that you could consider for someone who has recently moved into a new home or for someone who has recently had a baby. You can make this kind of basket for an elderly person who might not be able to fix large meals. This is a basket that can be given for a birthday or anniversary as well. If you make the basket for an anniversary, put a wine glass or two inside as well as a small bottle of wine or champagne. After everything is in your basket, wrap it in clear cellophane so that the person can see what’s inside. Tie the top of the basket with a decorative ribbon that blends well with the items that are inside.

I Am Confused

My cousin just messaged me this morning that they are hiring this time in the account that I had been wanting to join for a year now. I really wanted to go to submit my requirements but this week is just so hectic. Tomorrow is my youngest daughter’s birthday; I will be the one to deliver the lunch for the whole class and 2 boxes of pizza. If I will go at their office at 8 in the morning I may not be able to make it to do all things for Faith’s birthday because after I will deliver their lunch I have to grocery shop for our dinner at home then I have to go back in SM to buy the gift she wanted, not to mention I still have work later at night. Too busy that sometimes I can’t handle anymore.

On Friday, my sister already booked our Eden outing, an extension for her birthday celebration. Faith loves nature and animals and since we haven’t been there yet, I’d like to treat her, supposedly it was only her and I but my nieces, Mj and sisters would like to join, so I will be treating the whole family. I am hoping my money can make it. So moving forward I still can’t make it to their office. I know that opportunity knocks only once but how can I grab it, while I need to be a mother first for my kids. Oh God please guide my decisions.

Done With The Re-Evaluation

Faith is diagnosed for ADHD when she was in kinder. Don’t feel bad about it, my daughter is okay, we just need to correct her behavior so she can focus more.

So our evaluation just done last Friday, I really thought that we can transfer her already in a big school, the school near us but I was wrong because she still need to improve more, she still can’t focus, she talks a lot even while completing her task, she’s very impulsive and distracted.

Her Math evaluation for school related skills was yet in Grade 3 and she’s already in Grade 4. She whined when she have to answer the Math problem.

But with Science and Reading comprehension, she is so advanced for it.

The Doctor suggested for a Math Tutorial and a Behavioral Therapy.

I was thinking to continue her Kumon in Math and won’t do a Behavioral Therapy that if I will stop working. To stop working is to sacrifice for some extra stuff. If I stop working, our outside activity like eating in a restaurant, or Jollibee or McDonalds will be limited. We need to budget a lot with foods to eat at home, allowances, and transportation, which means no Taxi even all the Jeepneys are full.

I know that if I am working I can provide them all the stuffs, especially Mj will be in college soon. I can help big time with our expenses at home. But I really have to think about this, I also don’t want to compromise the things that my kid’s needs especially with their school and education.

Blogs, Nowhere To Be Found

I startled when I learned that the rest of my blogs are down without any reason at all. When I learned what happen I totally don’t want to write even to this blog because I don’t want to be reminded of those blogs nowhere to be found. But since I am on leave at work due to a recent asthma attack, I drag my chair, open my laptop and wrote about what happen to my blogs, good thing my host (Ma Belle) is working so hard to retrieve all the files and I am waiting, hoping that they will retrieve all my blogs.

Blue host you have to answer all these things to us. Why did you delete all of it without giving us the notification so we can be ready? The re-seller of your host is much updated with the payments but why did you just hit the delete button without confirming it. Your sorry is not acceptable at all, you have to answer it or at least provide my re seller of anything for this inconvenience that you incur to her and us.

I just hope and pray that they can retrieve the files; I was not able to back up my files because I reformat my computer and I didn’t have the slightest idea that this will happen sooner or later. I found my xml files in my external hard drive but the latest I have there was on 2014 yet. I don’t know what to do if I could not see all my blogs live. Lord please hear me out!
