Blog Hopping Inspired Me

30 October 2008

I'm in the process of reconstructing my blogger account. It's been busy for about 4 months. In a way,  I wasn't able to put some stories in since. One purpose I got Blogger, is to be able to read and appreciate the stories outside Multiply. You see, Multiply is originally my home. 

You can visit here:
Some people in the scene inspired me to continue with this site again. My thank yous for your lovely stories of Life & Love. You encouraged me to share the sweet nothings that makes up my day as a Mom and Wife. As I went my way,  widget by widget, joining exciting and fun activities, I saw articles with the same goals. 

I wondered, how do these bloggers make it, when at the other side of it, another one is doing it too. Then I realized, it's the stories they tell. It's the one's life experiences and inspirations that make them unique from one another. Parents who want to share their version of excitement when it comes to Family.

The Convenience Of Grocery Lists

28 October 2008

It's been a ritual for me to make a list for the things I needed to buy whether for grocery items, office supplies or even some stuff from the sari-sari store. The list serves as my guide to buy what is only needed. I have the tendency to go beyond my budget, which is really bad, if I may say.

Last sunday was Grocery day. The usual, I also had my good 'ol calculator with me. Got a cart, took out my gadget and found out that I didn't have the list inside my bag. I was like: "what! I know I made one". This is the result I get, from a heavy week. I miss on some things. Sometimes, I even tend forget to bring cash. Thank God for credit cards and atms.

I resulted doing my shopping for another extra hour. I needed to do it aisle by aisle and product by product. I must get it right. A list, particularly with regards to my groceries is a must. The things I buy are the goods that makes up my family's daily routine. And just last Monday, I found out that I missed to get some of my regulars. That eventually made it hard for me to finish some chores today. With my list at hand, surely, in no time, I will be done with my shopping and I will have everything that I need.

Where Did Sesame Street Go?

24 October 2008

A friend refreshed my mind somehow with her blog just recently.

Where did Sesame Street go? I used to watch it as a kid. It helps with the child's development. How I wish they bring back this show on local T.V here in the Philippines. It's going to be a different experience for our little ones.

Pure Jazz With HIM

My husband's heart for music is with Jazz. And when we heard that two of the jazz legends are coming, we couldn't explain the excitement that overwhelmed us. But while we're at it, work for became a hindrance. My heart broke when he told me that it might be impossible for him to experience Scofield. I then, looked for ways & researched for the important stuff online like the ticket prices, venue, time and other activities like the workshop. I don't want my husband to miss this particular event in his life.
And so, I was very successful, we went, we watched, we enjoyed. On the side, he was reunited with some old friends from the music industry. I gave this night to him. It's been a long time, since he last played. At least a good chat with his buddies might pull him back into playing his guitar again.

I felt fulfilled myself. I was able to give something that no material could ever replace. An experience to cherish with something he is so passionate about. Jazz...

What We Took Home From Church Today

My son & I went to a nearby church to hear mass. When we got out, there's this line of vendors waiting, selling kid's toys that light up in different colors. I myself wanted to buy for myself. Hopefully, I can use or play with everytime there's no electricity.

Prices range from P20 (which is the smallest) to P50 (the one in the picture). Isn't it nice. Looking at the colors alone is already entertaining.

Sweet Nothings Now Official

One thing that inspires a mom are the shallowness of being a mother itself. Pretending to be your child's favorite cartoon character, making meals restaurant style for your family or simply losing a set of french tips over some chores. My sweet nothings are the fun stuff I share with my loved ones. It's really nothing, but it's something sweet that you will always remember for the rest of your life.
After some months of concentrating on One Woman's Tale, I decided to proceed 'seriously' with this site where I can share the other side of being a housewife and most of all, the Sweet Nothings of a Mom.
