Goodbye Summer

Written on June 24th, 2013 by sassymomno shouts

Summer has ended and kids are now back to school. Their summer program has also ended. My son, who took up piano lessons this summer, refused to join the recital. I guess he still has to overcome his stage fright. Next summer, he wants to learn the guitar and pay the electric guitar like the epiphone les paul silverburst. Oh well, as long as they are happy and more blessings would come for me to afford it…It won’t be a problem.

I love summer! especially when I know that the kids are home and I can spend quality time them and cook up vacations and even staycations — it’s enough to make me happy. For soon, I know they will have their own activities that won’t even include me at all. For now, I am still savoring the moment ;-)




Summer Activities

Written on April 1st, 2013 by sassymomno shouts

It’s summer once again and I have to think of ways to keep my kids busy.

After discussing with my children, and asked them what they like, my boy decided to take up piano lessons. He was also considering guitar lessons so he can also learn to use her sister’s nylon string guitar but I told him once you know how to read notes, it will be easy for you to read chords. So, piano lessons it is for him this summer.

As for my daughter,  Hubby asked her to work for our newly opened office for the summer so she can help set up :-)  I say it’s a good training ground especially now that she has graduated from high school. It’s also a good time to bond with us, her parents before she goes into a boarding house next year.



Rains are pouring

The heat of summer has been so paralyzing nowadays. Migraine attacks, heat rash and of course, the sweat. That’s why I have been dreading summer — except for the road trips and the time I can spend with my children, it’s not really my favorite time of the year. I wish I electricity is not that high so we can have our house fully air-conditioned.

When the temperature is really high, I keep dreaming that I am in a cold, cozy place sipping a hot choco while sitting in a barnwood furniture. Ooooh, ain’t that cool?

As I write this blog post, I can hear thunder and rains are pouring outside. I wish it will rain the whole day so the temperature will go down.  Rains are a welcome respite nowadays. So I am really thankful just as long as it will not cause floods.

I wish I can just tell my body to get used to the summer temperature and be more productive as ever.

Summer lessons

Written on February 29th, 2012 by sassymomno shouts

Summer is here once again. In a few weeks, the kids will be out of school and they are now thinking of what to keep them busy this summer break. Despite the fact that we, as parents would want to take a break from spending, it’s inevitable that they enroll in summer classes to keep them away from spending the whole day in front of the TV or their console games.

My daughter still insists on continuing with her cheer leading camp despite her injury. We still have to decide whether to allow her or not. My boy, on the other hand, aside from his basketball clinic, would want to try out piano or guitar lessons. I’d rather he decides on taking up piano lessons since we already have a piano at home. If he decides to take guitar lessons, it’ll be a lot more expensive since we need to purchase him a guitar or even choose from different Fender Guitars in the market.

Oh well, whatever they decide, it will all be up to them. As for me, I sure hope we have enough funds to send them to these summer classes, for sanity’s sake. LOL! It’s harder for me to let them stay home and hear them say… “I’m bored!”, every now and then :-)

Scorching summer

This abnormally temperature is once again taking its toll on my skin. Sigh! The mere fact that the heat is paralyzing, the rashes on my skin just makes it worse.

Just going out the doors of our house is already an effort, it’s like you’re stepping inside a sauna. I guess this the effect of global warming. During these times, I miss being inside an air-conditioned office… well, you win some, you lose some.

If I have a choice, I would spend summer in the mountain where the air is fresh and there is cool breeze but I can’t. A lot of what ifs… I just wish summer is over and my skin will be back to normal.

At least this heat, makes me lose some extra pounds just by sweating… wink ;-)

Summer Fashion

Beach BodI was dressing up for a lunch date with my hubby’s family and as I was choosing my clothes, I can feel the temperature rising. The heat is on! Summer is definitely here. I decided to wear the most comfortable clothing I have.

In a tropical country like the Philippines, the heat dictates what you wear but it should not stop from being chic and fabulous all summer. Now that summer is here, it’s time to flaunt to those summer dresses which will make you looking fab and comfy while strolling under the sun.

In the Phils., urban clothes should always be comfortable. Humidity is a common foe so it is a must to wear clothing that will let your skin breathe.

Time to gear up for the summer! I promise to have a good tan this summer.
