I Am So Ready For Christmas

Yes, I can’t wait for Christmas this year, when I can enjoy celebrating it in our own home. I just  hope though that we are already worry-less and debt free for this house. I am thinking to put more ornaments in our house or maybe a lemax village to our center table. Geez I need to fix that one though, it has been a while that the glass was broke and it is needed to be replace. I can’t wait for Christmas, actually I can’t wait for this year to end. This year is not good for me, not at all. I hope this will be over soon so I am ready for Christmas this year.

Playing Guitar, Playing Flute

My daughters loved any musical instruments if Mj likes to play guitar my youngest daughter like to learn how to play flute. Since she is very eager to learn to play flute she asked me if she could use the computer and go to You Tube. I was busy that morning when she asked me, but she was able to type the word How to Play Flute and it directed her to the Tutorial to play flute. Anyway just recently I was able to take a video of my daughters, my eldest was playing the guitar and Faith tried to play flute:

Preparing For Batang Pinoy And DACS

It has been days already that we were not able to go to the swimming for training. After the competition we had 2 days rest but on Monday Mj’s ear got infected, it was so painful that the next day she requested for a check-up. The Doctor advised us to rest until Friday, so it was only started yesterday that Mj had training.

They are preparing for Batang Pinoy competition and DACS, the qualifying for Batang Pinoy will be on August and that is already next month. Mj will try to win the game because she is after the reward; she said she could buy cellphone for it. Yeah, her phone was broke and she badly needed one and since I don’t have a budget for it, she is trying her best to save to buy a new phone. The DACS is for the DCAA; it is somewhat an organization for Catholic Schools that whoever will qualify the competition will be competing for DCAA, so on and so forth.

Right now, we are still trying to balance her schedule for school, Kumon and her training. The classes started last month and I am still working on her schedule, on how to do it right so we can follow everything.

It Is Rainy Season Again, Be Very Aware Of Dengue Fever

This afternoon when I arrived at Faith’s school, I found out that one of the students in the school died in  Dengue Fever. Recently, one friend told me that their friend who is anaesthesiologist, her daughter died because of Dengue. And I am here panicking again, I am really having trauma with Dengue, my eldest has it before and thank GOD that it is not that severe, we were able to rush her to the hospital before it get worst.

The kid who is a schoolmate of my youngest, his fever just started on Friday but since he want to go to school, the parents allowed him but in the afternoon, the kid’s fever got worst, he was rushed to the hospital but it was too late. The Dengue attacks his lungs already and on Sunday he passed away. Hearing this from a parent in school gave me goosebumps, good thing I already bought patches for mosquitoes aside from the Green Cross Mosquitoes lotion I have at home. But still this does not stop me from being so worried about my kids and nieces. I always remind them to put a lotion for mosquitoes or patch. My teenager always uses patch because the lotion get so smelly, I still advised her to at least spread a little.

We should be aware that the dengue is contracted through a stripe Aedes aegypti mosquito, the dengue does not spread directly from person to person but through a mosquito which bitten someone who is a dengue carrier and would bite to one person. The symptom when one has dengue is fever that would increase to 40 degree Celsius, the first hours of illness the victim would suffer a painful joints and legs. The victim would also experience chills, pain upon moving the eyes, and low backache. Fever and other signs would last from three to four day but some it would only last one day then a rapid drop of body temperature now this is the most dangerous stage because the virus is already attacking the lungs, liver and all the parts of the organ. After the rapid drop of body temperature, after a day maybe, the fever will go up rapidly again.

Be always aware of your surroundings. If you notice stagnant water in your yard or in your surroundings, even if it’s not part of your area, be kind enough to pour the stagnant water in the ground so the mosquitoes that are living there will go away and won’t bite anyone in the area.
