The Sooner, The Better

It's been 2 months and a half since I hurt my wrist and it is still hurting until now. I have been to few doctors' appointment and a therapy session but the swelling and the pain still don't go away. I can tell though that it is getting better, there's a progress and that is important. I think the therapy is very helpful and my therapist taught me a massage technique to help lessen the swelling. She also told me to put ice on it as often as I can. Per my doctor and my readings, wrist sprain or strain usually takes long to heal and it even takes longer if you are moving your hands too often while it is healing. I will have a doctor's appointment in two weeks and more therapy sessions before it so will see if my wrist will even get better than the current condition. If not, we will see what the doctor's next step will be. Or maybe I will just wait until my wrist heals by itself or continue with my therapy. Before this happened, I didn't even now that there are rehabilitation center that specializes with hand and upper extremity injuries, sleep disorder, dual diagnosis treatment, etc. Hahaha....the wonders of medical field...

Self Improvement On The Go

We are doing our spring cleaning in the weekend and we decided to start in the second floor. Hubby decided to re-arrange the furniture upstairs and look into mounting the flat screen tv in the wall. He has been shopping around to look for a good deal with tv mounts. He is checking electronic stores nearby and in the internet.

If you are going to ask me, I prefer to buy an entertainment center but hubby has another idea and after he explain it to me I think I am convinced. Obviously, he has the selling power to convince even the hard-headed person like me. To even convince me more, hubby made a sketch to show that it would definitely look good once this project is materialized. The five movie pictures that hubby bought is now framed so I think it will absolutely look great upstairs once everything is done. He would like to have an open media room upstairs and that is what he trying to achieve. I can't wait for this project to be over so we can move on to changing the carpet to hard wood on the first floor.

Ask, All They Can Say Is No or Yes

With prices of things soaring high these days, it is a normal reaction to find ways to cut costs. If there is a public transportation in your city, you might look into using one especially if your schedule doesn't require you coming in and out of the office the whole day. You might want to take a look at the things that you grab during grocery shopping. It is important to have a list to avoid buying unnecessary things. Also, make sure to turn off the lights in your house when not in need or have a regular laundry or ironing schedule to save water and electricity. Try also to look closely into your insurances. If you think you are paying more than what you think you should, start doing price comparison with the insurance companies available in your place. Check if you can save more if you are going to bundle your car/s, house, life and health insurance. Talk to an insurance agent today and see what deal they can offer you that would suit you and your family's need. If you don't know where to start, try Blue Cross Blue Shield.

My Day Well Spent


What a beautiful day it was! I was able to sleep in and just relax all day watching one of my favorite TV shows, NCIS and Criminal Minds. I was also able to check my emails and my other online blogs and websites. Oh, I did grocery shopping in the afternoon when hubby got home from work. It was a short "me time" but I enjoy walking around the supermarket quietly and free. I was disappointed though because the Wal-Mart that I went to didn't have green lettuce which is very important for our salad. I bought everything I need there but I have to swing by at Kroger’s to get the green lettuce. Thanks God the latter is only less than a mile away. From there, I have to hurry up in going home because the family will be over to celebrate my mom-in-law’s birthday. As I was approaching the front house, I already smell the food that hubby was grilling. Today was indeed a very wonderful day: great weather, grocery shopping done and the family get together was terrific!

All for Love

Having a very active little one, it is needed to keep first aid kit in the house just in case I will need it in the future (God forbid). I am also planning of having a medicine cabinet where I can store all the medicine and my first aid kit. In this way, I will be able to put everything in one place so it is easy to locate if needed.

After all, it is better to be prepared and equipped because sometimes things happen so quick that you will only have short time to respond to it. If someone injured then you can give them first aid while waiting for the medical team to arrive. In most cases, the earlier we do something the safer it is for the injured person. However, please make sure you know how to administer first aid prior to doing it.

Safe In and Out

Safety. This is what we always want for our families, good friends and for everyone around us. We want them to be safe and healthy. We want them to be protected from any danger pose by nature or by any forces around us. We want to give them good life. We work hard to provide them a good life and a bright future.

Part of keeping our family safe and protected is to make sure that they are free from any harm outside or inside our house. Our home should be the safest place for our family. We should make sure it is clean, debris-free and the air is clean meaning allergen-free to avoid illness for your family member.

If you have kid or family member who has asthma or any respiratory condition, more that you have to be watchful on the cleanliness of the air inside your house. If you think the air inside your house is not clean enough, you might need to use air purifier. Hepa air purifier is one of your options for allergen control, gas removal and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).

If you think you need to purify the air inside your house, do it now! Stay healthy my friend!

Words of the Soul


I am empowered. I am inspired. I attended a women's conference today and it feels great listening to the words of wisdom shared by the speaker. The theme of the conference is very empowering and absolutely important for the women of today to become successful both personal and career aspects. Those words are like food to a hungry body and it surely boosts your self-esteem towards dealing with life's challenges and opportunities.

I learned a lot from the conference and I appreciate all my bosses for letting us go there. It was also a great way of meeting all women from the different department of the company. It was a great way to network and put faces to the names that you only see in paper, emails or the company's directory.

This year was my second year of attending that event and I look forward for next year.
