My hubby and I went out to buy grandma a new TV for her bedroom. In the mall, we found a variety of TVs and flat screen tv stands for sale. We shop around for the cheapest one because we have a strict budget. Of course we also have to consider quality and size. Thankfully, we’re lucky enough to get a cheaper one. Grandma was satisfied and happy about it.Read More
One of the first things that my husband and I did as homeowners was get new carpet for our new home. We decided we wanted top quality, cream colored carpet along our stairway and entire second floor. It was just what our home needed to add that touch of coziness. As out toddler entered the stages of potty training we did not expect the number of accidents that took place. Thankfully, potty training was a brief time in our lives, but the contamination it did to our carpet lasted longer than we would have liked. Potty accidents are just one of the risks of carpet damage that we didn’t foresee. Toddlers throw up, get dirty, and make a mess. The carpet is a target to all that a toddler can do. Although a good vacuum can pick up all the dirt, it won’t be able to get a deep cleaning with sanitation. You will probably want to invest in a professional carpet cleaner approximately twice a year. Not doing so can create health problems such as asthma and allergies. The longer you withhold on this chore, the harder it will be to get the deep cleaning you need. So, if you have carpet in your home, then a professional carpet cleaner is a good investment.Read More
My hubby’s grandma is already 88 years old but despite her age, she is still as strong as ever. She still goes out on her own and can climb the stairs without the use of a stairlift. She credits her strong body with proper diet and working hard and not being idle.
Two years ago an accident happened that shocked us all. She was climbing the stairs as usual after having her lunch. When she reached the top she slipped and fell down with a loud, “Thud!” Her grandkids came to her rescue and rushed her to the hospital.
Amazingly, when the doctor examined her they found that her hip bone was intact despite the hard fall. Her doctors couldn’t believe that she only suffered a small crack in her bone despite her very advanced age.
Although her injuries was not that devastating she was still bedridden for three months. Still her fighting spirit was strong and would try to sit and finally walk a little every day. When she was able to finally walk they installed a stairlift so she could go up and down the stairs. It has been a big boost to our grandma’s spirit when she could wander around again. Being confined in her own room was not acceptable to her because she was used to moving on her own.
It’s been two years since that sad incident and I’m happy to report that she’s as mobile as ever. She can now go up and down the stairs without assistance. She can even go to church every Sunday. We have seen firsthand how resilient she had been in the adversity she faced and how she came out victorious with a little help from her stairlift which was her ride to her freedom when she needed it the most. She still keeps it as a memento to remind her of the adversity she overcame two years ago. We know she’s proud of herself and she has every right to because not everyone can survive a fall like she did.

Birthdays are really very special for kids and they remain very eager and excited about their birthdays to come earlier. Parents always love to treat their wards with the best birthday parties ever. Some of the kid’s birthday party ideas may include the importance of location and other accessories used. It is very important for the parents to invite some of their children’s best friends to the party. Exciting gifts are very much appreciated by kids. The location is very important and it can be either home or may be some place which can really test the excitement level of the birthday child.
Home is considered to be the best suited place for celebrating birthdays of kids because it is economical as well. One can easily decorate the place with personalized ribbon for favors which can be customized very easily. The gifts should be something which the kid really wants and it is better if the parents can keep it as a surprise. Surprises often make kids very happy. The food is taken into deep consideration because friends visiting the party need to appreciate everything they have come for. Birthdays are special occasions which are perfectly carried out with a blend of good music and hospitality.
A location selected in an open area or park can be suitable for places with lower temperatures. The places should be decorated by the help of professionals who are in charge of decoration purposes. An open area can fairly accommodate a larger number of visitors. The food can be served under a shed or may be in a house nearby which can be availed through rent. The area needs to be very clean and personalized ribbon for flavors can be alternatively used in order to provide a festive mood to the visitors and the birthday child.
My eldest son visited his school. We went there to get his school materials for this year. He is currently homeschooling so we don’t go here often.
These are all his workbooks for this year. Once he finishes these he will be eligible to go to the next level. Goodluck, Z!Read More
We bought a new skate shoes for our eldest. This one you have to attach to the shoe and not built in.
The salesmen were kind enough to teach him how to use it but it was harder than we thought it would be.
Nevertheless, we thank the two men who helped our son. We tried to give them something in return but they wouldn’t accept because it was forbidden by their company.Read More
