Do I Look Fat?

Do you think I look fat in this picture? That is what one of my friends on Facebook commented. I wouldn’t be upset with her comment if she was slim but she is not, she is heavier than me. This friend of mine seldom posts comments on my Facebook and when she does she always criticizes me for being fat. She had been my friend when I was still in the Philippines. I can only remember a few times when she commented on my pictures and all of her comments were about my weight gain. I know that I have …

Back Massager

We bought this back massager for only $7.99 from a second hand store. My hubby has been having some back problems and we have been thinking about buying a back massager for quite a while. We had looked at one in a store that was comparable to this for $80 but for that amount of money, it wasn’t exactly what he wanted so he did not buy it. This back massager came with an easy to use touch pad control. It actually fits me better than my hubby and gives a great and relaxing massage. It really does relax the …

Need a Haircut

I need a haircut soon. I am getting too lazy to take care of my long hair and sometimes don’t comb it everyday. Yes, you read it right, especially if I am just staying at home. I have fine hair and it is hard to get untangled. My hubby prefers that I have long hair. Don’t get me wrong, I do too but keeping it healthy and nice is a lot of work.

We will be taking a trip to the Philippines in the next few weeks and it is warm there so it makes sense to have shorter hair. …

Fever, Cough, Stuffy Nose and Muscle Pain

I had the flu but I am now feeling better. This was probably the longest that I had ever had the flu before. I had fever, cough, stuffy nose and muscle pain. I even lost my voice. My hubby said that my situation was getting close to pneumonia. He said that when I was already getting better because he told me if I had gotten any worst he would have taken me to the hospital. I really did not want to end up in the hospital because I don’t have health insurance. That would have ended up a real headache …

Trying to Prevent Sunburn

During summer, my hubby and I don’t usually go to the beach but we do get a lot of sun while fishing. It was cloudy the last time we went fishing and we did not expect that we would get sunburn. Though I did get a sunburn, it didn’t look obvious because I am naturally tan.

Next time, we go out when it is cloudy we need to make sure to protect ourselves with high SPF sunblock. I don’t like to wear sunblock but I would rather put that on than get burned. Since I don’t like to wear it, …

Heartbreaks and Poverty

I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I have often thought about the many different paths my life may have taken over the years had I stuck with one career or another. I have been through a lot in my life that includes heartbreaks and poverty. God has led me the way and ultimately, I found the path that I am on where I am happy and contented. If my path didn’t take the one that it did, I never would have met my loving and generous husband. The path of my life has changed dramatically …

Uterine Massage

It has been three years now since my hubby and I have been trying to start our own family. I am getting frustrated. The last time I vacation my native country, the Philippines, I went to my OB-GYN and had myself checked. The doctor said that I don’t have problems getting pregnant but she would not prescribe me something that could help me get pregnant because she has to check my husband yet. I had my uterine massage as well. It is a common way to help a woman get pregnant in the Philippines.

Waiting is no fun at all. …
