2015 Blog Revival

I can’t believe I almost didn’t renew this domain!

Let me go back a bit. I have neglected this blog for too long already. 2013 and 2014 went by without a single personal blog post. I thought I was done blogging. When it was time to renew I let it pass. I was a little sad but totally forgot about it. Don’t know how many days have passed or maybe a week or even two. I thought I was finally done with blogging when I one day mentioned to hubby that I failed to renew this domain. He advised me to still renew it – sayang naman daw. So out of obedience I did just that. That was mid-2014. Now 2015 came and I realized I’ve missed blogging!

So here I am writing my very first post this 2015. I’m wiping my slate clean and starting a topic that is like a new year’s resolution but much better. I am writing our family plan for 2015.

First a background. Why did I think of this? The past year has been crazy busy and I have neglected my kids a lot. I realized every year would be that way. If I don’t do anything to make my home-work balance better this year then it would be this way year after year after year.

Good thing I read about Ryan Smith. He’s the CEO of Qualtrics which is worth a billion dollars. He’s also a husband and a father of three kids. He has a life coach and together they’ve developed a way to create more balance in his life. The good news their strategy is working so well that when a company offered to buy Qualtrics from him he declined because he feels his work-life balance is already good so he can afford to manage his business and give quality time to his family all at the same time.

Here’s how he’s doing it. He listed down his different roles – husband, father, CEO.  Then he wrote down the things he needed to do this week for each role to make him feel successful. For example as a husband he would take out his wife on a date and buy her flowers and as a father he would teach his kids to bike for the week. He would also multitask like if he needed to visit his parents that week he would combine that with teaching his kids how to ride a bike. This way he can shoot two birds in one stone. He says it’s hard and he has less time to sleep at night but at least he feels like he is not neglecting other aspects of his life.

I’m really happy I was able to know about him. When I got involved in our small business I really had no idea what I was in for. I thought I’ll just work hard at first then after a few years my work will pay off and I would be able to relax. I’m in my third year of working here and it seems the hard work will never stop. As we grow so does my responsibilities. If I don’t control my life I feel like my work will overwhelm me and the real losers would be my kids.

Best Site For Musical Instruments

Guitar is one of the most popular musical instruments anywhere which is applicable to any musical styles like rock music, country music, flamenco music, etc. Anyone loves to play it whether you’re a musician or you’re simply enjoyed listening to music that admired the guitar works. While browsing the net and i found from this site www.musiciansfriend.com of all types of guitar, nothing to ask more, everything is under one roof. This is one of the best sites that I’ve visited and luckily where I purchased the gift for my hubby.

Christmas Ornaments

It’s so hard to believe that it’s a BER months once again. We could really feel that BER months are the months full of celebrations and happenings which brings us a nice and warm feelings. At this early, Christmas songs are already played on radio and some of us are thinking about Christmas decors in and out of the house. For me the number one in my checklist is to shop for christmas ornaments as yearly give away for my friends and relatives. Having these ornaments I totally feel the spirit of Christmas.

Motorcycle Shipping

Everywhere nowadays motorcycle is one of the most popular vehicles used to get around and nearby town, one means of transportation used by many people. If want to export it because of its high demand you can coordinate with the trusted service of international motorcycle shipping company, they are there for you to assist and give their very best to make your motorcycle be delivered in front of the doorstep safely.

Organizing Our Things

Since our two wardrobes were destroyed by the flood we only have two cabinets left – one that my husband and I share and one small cabinet for the kids’ clothes. While unpacking our clothes from the boxes I noticed that we had more clothes and some wouldn’t fit if I try to place everything inside. So I’m packing some of our things for future use like hubby’s barong and office wear. He also used to wear a lot of jackets in the office like one of those look north face jackets men and these are bulky too so I’ll be putting them away in a box. I’m thinking of giving these away too to people who might need it.

I read somewhere that a good practice of not accumulating so many things and organizing your things is every time you buy something you throw away/give away another. Like for example you bought a new pair of shoes then you have to throw away another so you’ll have a space for your new purchase. This way you won’t have a cramp space and there will be space for all your things.

No Basketball Week

My boys were sad. The basketball court we are frequenting is closed!
It turned out they painted they were making some renovations like painting the floor and I don’t know what else. We’re just wondering why it’s taking so long for them to open it again to the public because the paint has already dried a few days back.
We hope by next week the lock is gone and the court is open. I’m already missing my exercise buddies. I hope the pink ladies pressure whoever is in charge to open it again to the public.

Sudden acceleration

I recently read a blog that is claiming that just like the Toyota issues in the U.S., a number of Mitsubishi Montero SUVs are getting into accidents because of a mysterious sudden acceleration. It’s sad seeing the accidents and even some people were hurt, but the sadder part is that Mitsubishi is blaming the floor mats, claiming that it got over the gas pedal.

I was a fan of Mitsubishi but after reading about these incidents, I might just change my mind and opt for safer brands. Drivers should be worried about rims for cars instead of sudden uncontrolled acceleration. I hope and pray that the remaining Montero SUVs that are running are working properly and that justice will be served to those that were affected.

Acoustic DI Box

The routine is always the same, every morning my hubby always listens and sings to some of his favorite songs and artists. After that, if there still time in the morning, he plays his acoustic, semi-hollowbody and solidbody guitar. He has all of these expensive guitars but he doesn’t have any of the acoustic di box which I heard this is his next target to buy. Go on hubby I’m here for you.
