Last Minute

Next week I badly need to do last minute shopping. And the weather is not cooperating as we are expecting more rain next week. Ugh! I should have taken advantage of the Black Friday and finished off our Christmas list. Now I have to finish everything next week. The only problem is everytime I am out to buy gifts I also find something to buy for myself, T or for tornado, lol. I know I can finish our Christmas list. I can! I can!

7 more days and it's Christmas!

House Renovation

The project to renovate the house is never ending. After finishing the renovations inside, it's now the outside that we are working on. In the past 2 weeks, we had a new garage door installed and the outside of the house has been painted. Right now, someone is working on putting up a new fence and cementing our side yard. The one working on putting up our backyard fence is a guy we saw working on our neighbors house. They just finished doing some steel building and are now taking on smaller projects. This weeks forecast is it's going to be raining but I hope it's not going to be that bad for them to finish the project by the end of the week.

It's going to be one busy weekend for us. I guess all weekends leading to Christmas is going to be busy. I hope I can squeeze in some time to go online to look for term life insurance as T had asked me to do this early this week but I have never had the time to do so. I'm looking forward to seeing my relatives as they are all leaving next week for the Philippines. I'm still feeling sad that we are not able to go home. I know I will be missing out on a lot of fun. Happy weekend everyone.

15 days

Exactly 15 days before Christmas and we still have tons to do. T bought a tree already the other day and last night placed the lights. we need to still put on the ornaments we bought. The house smells like pine which I really like. We need to still finish our Christmas shopping. I made a bit of a progress yesterday and bought a few gifts. I'm thinking of giving my BIL pull up bars since he is trying to get fit, but I'm not so sure on this. I have yet to buy a present for my little boy. I'm thinking a cute Christmas outfit. He has a lot of clothes but I have to get him a nice one to wear on Christmas. Oh, I think I want new clothes too. My pre-pregnancy clothes still don't fit me and my pregnancy clothes are big so I'm really left without clothes to wear. We sure are going to be busy in the coming days.

Christmas List

We have not started with our Christmas shopping. I have a feeling we will be doing this a day before Christmas,lol. At least I have made a list already of who we need to buy gifts for and what we could buy for them. We gave the guys on our list nice pens last year and I'm thinking of giving them ties this year. The kids would probably get either toys or books. The women are getting scarves. And the list goes on and on.

Oreo White Fudge

My new addiction. Sooo good but I know it's so bad too in terms of calories but I can't help it. We have even stocked up on it since we know it won't be available for long. Now I'm thinking I might need the 7 day slimming pill considering I have not even lost all the weight I've gained during my pregnancy. I can't stop myself from eating this though.

Poor baby

Thank God the little one is finally taking a nap. We went to see his pedia this morning and they gave him his vaccination. They told me to expect him to have fever and be fuzzy. So far, no fever but he has been a little fuzzy. It has been 3 hours since we got home from the doctor and I've been trying to finish reading an article about human growth hormone side effects since we got home and only finished 5 minutes ago. That's how fuzzy he's been. Hopefully he'll be fine tonight and that I get some sleep. Other than that, he is on track with his development. yey!

Dermatologist Needed

I think I really need to go visit a dermatologist soon. Other than my acne woes, I need to get blackhead treatment. I feel that my face has gotten really dirty. The last time I went to get facial was a few weeks before I living the Philippines and that is 11 months ago. I was looking forward to getting a facial when we go home but with the change of plans and having to celebrate Christmas here in the US my planned dermatologist visit is put on hold.
