Papa's 68th

February 17—it’s a very special day for our family because it’s the birthday of our number one man, Papa. What would you give to the most special man in your life? It seems like all other things are frivolous and because of this I couldn't think of anything to give to my father. For fun, maybe I could give him swishers or a pipe just for his collection since he does not smoke. Or for his hobby, I could give him a couple of fish baits or additional manly tools. I know that whatever I give him, he will enjoy and I imagine his face would light up like a little boy that was given his first puppy. So I’ll just keep on thinking and I’ll let you know if I thought of something perfect.


Nostalgia for Grey's Anatomy

Grey’s anatomy is one of my all time favorite series; it’s a medical drama with a sprinkle of humor, lots of love stories, stories of friendship, of life and death. Just watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy would leave me breathless and aside from that I have learned a lot of things from it that I can use in my everyday life.

I remember the days when I would wait for the latest episode every week to see Derek and Mer's latest issues, or Christina's humor or Mark's hotness. I would also remember that my heart would break a little if they decided to have a hiatus and not show for a couple of weeks.

But it’s been a year since I've last seen it since right now I don’t have cable. And as a fan I would love to have one of the shows memorabilia, maybe a picture of me with Derek’s sailboat cap on or buy Greys anatomy scrubs or better a yet a picture with the main cast and all their autographs. That would certainly be a dream come true. But since I could not have that yet then I’ll settle for a Grey’s Anatomy marathon tonight with my best friend.





Getting Organized

Sometimes I have trouble getting our things organized-- that's because at the end of a long day, I just don't have the energy and drive to clean up anymore. Well, that's what weekends are for, right? But I find myself busy doing many things on weekends too so I guess getting really organized can wait until the first school holiday! I am just thankful that there's this mount for ipad so I don't have to worry that my iPad gets lost among the many paper works or it can easily be found whenever it's needed.

Speaking of getting organized, I guess I need a new bookshelf for my books and other stuff.  I am looking for something that would not take much of our bedroom or office space.  Do you have an idea where to find practical shelves like those?
        

Decorating Our New Abode

I blogged about our quiet Christmas last year-- we just did not have the energy to decorate a tree or buy presents under it with our very busy schedule. It was alright.. the kids have always understood the meaning of Christmas so they are always happy even without the merry-making and exchanging of gifts. But of course it would be good to have a family tradition, isn't it? So this year's Christmas, hopefully, will be a lot more meaningful to them with all those trimmings and lights.

 For now that Christmas is still 11 months away, we are trying to beautify our new abode. We already have furniture from our old place, but we are thinking of getting cushions outdoor so we could rest at the porch at the end of a long day. It's great to have one of those cushions because we don't have to worry if they'd get wet in the rain. I'm not sure when we will do the shopping for that, though. Beautifying a house is something hubby and I love doing together!
