Deep thought before bed -- I'll see you, TOMORROW

I should've been already sleep by now but I don't feel like doing so. Tomorrow is my first day of work for a new job. Actually, it's just a training, but a paid one too. Tomorrow will be the start of another big change in my life. After a year and almost 5 months of not having a full time, I'm gonna start one tomorrow. It will be hard, but I know that it'd only be in the beginning and soon, I'm gonna get used to it again. Tomorrow, my son's life will change coz he's gonna start attending school at a young age of 3. Tomorrow will be my first time being separated from my son for the whole day and it'd one of the hardest thing, above all.

Getting this full time was a very big decision that I did on my own but with my husband's full support and guidance from God, so I know I did the right thing. But a part of me is worried, especially about my son. I know, in my mind and in my heart, that he's gonna be alright. He's gonna have fun and learn a lot of things in school, but I know that we'll gonna be missing each other so much, I don't think I can bear it. But I need to work which is the best for his future. And him in school is what's good for him too, so that he can develop his interrelationship with other people and being independent.

Ever since I got the job offer, I have been always thinking about this. God knows how happy I am with the new blessing that He gave to us. A job that I like with everything that I needed. But things aren't always perfect. Though I got what I wanted, this time is a huge obstacle for me between my son and my family. I guess I'll just to pass through this obstacle just like what I did with all the other ones that I've been through to prove that I deserve all of this blessing. I know, life should be always like this. But I'm only human and I'm not strong. I have God with me and that's all I can depend on. He had never left me and I'm sure that He never will.

Bus riding around downtown Austin

This coming Monday would be my first day of work in downtown Austin. I'm so excited and worried coz I don't drive yet so I'd gonna end up drive with my mother-in-law home or take a bus if she's gonna be out of town.

I have been here in Austin, TX for a little over a year but we've never been around the downtown area that often coz we don't wanna fight traffic. So I asked my husband if we can go around downtown just to see where do I need to go to take a bus and what bus do I need to take since there are lots of routes around Austin.

We started in the nearest bus stop/park and ride to our house which is around 5 miles away from us. We took a route that will pass by where I'm working at and that wasn't a short one. It took us about 45 minutes to get where we're planning to go. So I decided that once I'd be able to get my license, I'd rather drive to work and fight the traffic than suffer being dizzy with all the stops with a bus.

We then took a short trip (about 5 minute) from my workplace to my mother-in-law's office. That was short, so I can deal with it everyday, but not the long trips with million stops (ugh!).

That was such an experience and we learned a lot of things--the routes, stops, people we'll be riding with, etc. And I was glad that I was able to somehow to around downtown a little before my first day of work day. Of course, I'm excited to go to work. I remember myself when I first got here in Austin and saw the tall buildings, I said that I wish I'd be able to work in one of those tall buildings, and starting this Monday, I will be. Thank God for never unfailing support.

Is he a legitimate child?

When I was still in my process of getting a US visa, I've encountered a lot of people who are also undergoing undergoing the same process as mine. There's one certain person who also had a son like me, but his son is his US citizen fiance's son. I remembered her specifically coz she was worried about her son may needing to undergo DNA testing to prove that he's a legitimate son of her fiance. But I don't think they did it. Well, if I were to say, the child looks so much her fiance so there shouldn't a doubt that it's his.

In my case, my son's not my husband's legitimate child so I was never worried about it. Also, his biological was out of the picture coz I never had his name on my son's birth certificate.

If you went to a DNA testing process when you applied for your US visa, please let me know so that I would be able to help anyone who would come to me and ask me about this concern. Thanks and have a great day!

Yay! Got new Yahoo! Mail now (TOO!)

I got so jealous when I saw my husband's Yahoo! Mail that has a new look. It has a box where you can type your update/status just like Facebook. Then you can put applications on the right side and get updates from friends on your contact list as well (See image below). It looks like a social networking page (specifically, Facebook). It is so cool!

I don't if I'm the only one who's left behind or what! But I wonder why my Yahoo! Mail doesn't have those cool new features? It's me who can make use of those features and my husband doesn't really use them at all. Arrrggghhh!

So, earlier today, I finally had the chance (and patience) to figure out how to do it. And, of course, I'm gonna share it with you. It's actually not that hard, but trying to figure it out is hard.

Anyway, all you need to do is switch it to Yahoo! Mail Classic. You should see those features there. Then, on the right hand side of the Classic screen, click on Try New Yahoo! Mail (or something like that) link. You should see the new features on your new Yahoo! Mail. If it doesn't work, you may need to change your account's Country/Language by clicking to My Account link on the top of Yahoo! Page.

Hate losing my files

..who doesn't?

I'm trying to be as organized as I can be. Though I'm not really an organized kind of person, but I think I have improved myself on having everything organized. I started doing that when I got married and realized how much important files we have, and finding them in an unorganized shelf is like finding a needle in a haystack (or maybe not that hard..YET). So, one day, I did try to sort all the files and put the same ones together so it's easier for us to find them.

Same thing goes with computer files. If you only have a few files, it may not that hard to find anything, but if you're like me who has a lot of things saved in the computer, well, it would crazy. I have like thousands of pictures (edited and not), songs, documents, etc. saved in my hard drive. And you can only imagine if I need to restore my computer if it will crash and I don't have the files backed up. Well, thanks to the people who invented online backup programs, I don't have that big of a problem backing up my files.

Cell numbers go public

We just got home from my in-law's house and I got something for y'all.

My mother-in-law just happen to read it from Rocksprings, TX newspaper and she decided to cut it off and made a copy for each of us so that we know. Anyway, I scanned the clipping so that I can share it with you too.

So if you're living in the US, you better do this if you don't want telemarketers to call you. We already did this and it only took me 3 minutes. My mother-in-law already marked her calendar so that in 5 years when we need to call again, we'll know.

Kinda new blog

I got couple of new things today. First, I'm back to blogging again. I know, I know, I said that before too but I never did. I actually did but not for long. Now I'll try to stick to it for one reason, I just realized what should I already have if I never did stop blogging. I realized that yesterday when I was browsing on other blogs and saw the money making resources now and how much they've been earning from it. So, yes I wanna earn money online again.

Then second new thing, I got a kinda new blog. It's not really new it's the same old Money-making blog I have, only that it has a new name and domain. The is now It's the same topic but I'll try to focus more on online money making resources. So, yes I'm in search of sites where we can all earn money again. Wish me luck!

Please do visit my new site and if you have some ideas that you'd like to share, don't hesitate to leave me a comment. Thanks and have a good one!

Still searching?

So, I'm still in my quest of finding the right weight loss products, idea, exercise, etc. Then, just today, I found Solo Slim, a diet pill that will make you feel less hungry once you take it 30 minutes before your meal. So, it will make you eat less.

That sounds a good idea but I'm not saying that it should be good to you too. Like what I'm always saying here, we all have different body, so, a product may be good to me but not to you and vice versa. So I always suggest that you do your own research and see for yourself which one really suits your need. All I'm doing here is sharing with you the products and ideas and I found.

I hope it's clear. Good luck to your weight loss product search! ;-)

Going there

So, I was just done reading Cosmopolitan magazine. I was trying to catch up I'm 3 months behind. I just got done reading the September and August issue, and will be ready for the July issue after blogging.

Anyway, I'd like to share with you the interesting article I've read. Since I mentioned losing weight on my previous post, here is something related to it. The article is titled "The 10 Weight-Loss Tips Ever". Cosmo shared the 10 things that would easily help us lose weight without dieting whatsoever and just simply sticking to a habit. The 10 things are:
♥TURN OFF THE TV while eating
♥REACH FOR YOUR CELL to redirect your brain from the urge of devouring junk

There, you got it! But if you're as hopeless as me, one easy thing we can do, enroll to a weight loss program. :-D

Not fair!

This is so not fair! Or, is it? I have a different way of losing weight now. According to my source, it is effective. It's just sticking to low-calorie food. So, yes, that's what I'm doing now. But what makes it unfair is I have all the low-calorie stuff in our fridge and shelves now, doing kickboxing almost three times a week, and all the other stuff but everything seems to be worthless when a single pint of ice cream gets in. Arrgghhh!

So, I guess, I should seek help from weight loss pills now. What do you think? I think I'm hopeless. LOL. Actually, I'm not kidding. I don't think, I'd really be able to lose weight coz of all the sweet temptations around, especially when a 3-year old wants and needs them.
