Have a safe trip

I’m still awake and looking for reviews of zit cream when I remember that my sister will go back to Macau this afternoon. We still have a few hours to bond before we send her to the airport. She will surely miss our mother and her four kids. She made a lot of requests regarding her kids’ welfare. She requests me to enrol her eldest to the same school where my kids go to; buy her daughter a set of uniform, a pair of black shoes and school supplies. I promised to take care of some needs of her kids, including doing the grocery for them. Our mother will not be able to go to the bank to claim her monthly SS pension, so I will be the one to do the bank visit for her. I hope to keep up to my promise while also attending to my own family. (Will I still have time left to maintain my blogs and write opportunities? Oh no!)

Have a safe trip, sis! I will miss you. 🙂

Scorching heat

We are using two electric fans at home but they don’t help eliminate the scorching heat that we are experiencing from high noon onwards. The additional fan adds to our power consumption which also means additional power charges and burden to our pocket. To address the problem, we are considering buying Minka Aire fans to conserve energy and save money.
FANHubby said we should have installed ceiling fans before. Ceiling fans have more benefits compared to their conventional counterparts (stand fan and desk fan). They are space saver; at least 4 degrees cooler; dissuade flying pests from entering the house especially the kitchen area; if use in colder months, the moving air from ceiling fan helps distributes the warm air coming from the heat stove; and the power consumption it generates is lower as compared to air conditioner. So don’t you think having ceiling fans at home is a practical solution to beat the summer heat and conserve energy as well?

Bedtime habit

Although it’s a bit late, I’m glad I was able to join Couple’s Corner this week which theme was about bedtime habits. It’s a common practice for hubby and me to take a shower before going to bed. Our kids are also accustomed to have sponge bath every night or if they are too sleepy to clean up, they make sure they changed into something more comfortable. They drink their milk and brush their teeth before sleeping. They also say their prayers at night.

Hubby and I follow the same routine every night. As far as sleeping position is concerned, I sleep in fetal position with my back facing my husband. While in this position, hubby would wrap his arms around me as if assuring me of his “undying” love lol. We were in that position until we dozed off. Sometimes we love to sleep on the far side of the bed.

I read something about the sleeping positions of couples and what it tells about their relationship. I don’t seem to agree with the meaning of some positions in relation to the personality of couples. There are sleeping positions that you and your partner  do not feel doing, like sleeping face to face. I’m not comfortable with it because I can’t seem to breathe properly when my face is so close to hubby’s.

I wish to share more, but I feel so sleepy right now. Read more about Couple’s Corner here.
