Weight Gain

It is just over a month since I arrived here in my native country, the Philippines. So far so good except that I am gaining a lot of weight. Before the trip, I tried my best to lose as much as possible because I knew that I would be putting on weight over this trip and sure enough I did. I haven’t been on scale lately so I don’t know for sure how many pounds did I put on. One thing that I know that two days after I got here, I could feel that my body was expanding. Needless …

Dental Appointment

My hubby has a dental appointment this Thursday. It is an hour and a half drive from home. We will also be going on to Fargo to go grocery shopping at an Asian store. I am hoping that my hubby gets the diagnosis that he needs regarding his dental problems and how much it is going to cost us to get them taken care of. Another dental clinic that we went to last week wanted us to take another four hour trip and pay them an extra $1000 to give my husband a full evaluation. We weren’t happy about that …

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, …
