Me Forgettable? I Don't Think So!

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 09:16:00 PM 0 comments
yes I am very quiet and reserved that is why most people are intimidated by me. I don't know why. It is me, and if they don't like who I am..then that is fine with me. I will not change myself just to fit in. I will be me and nothing and no one can change that. I love being me. Yes, I have few friends but they are real friends. Friends who love and understand me for who I am and what I can offer to them. I know some people who are willing to change just because they wanted to fit in or gain lots of friends...and I am so sad for them. I don't want a complicated life for it gives me stress. I would rather be me rather than suffer for stress...which by the way stress is not healthy. It will make you unhappy and sick physically.

You Are Forgettable

You shouldn't be forgettable, but sometimes you blend too easily into the room.

You are quiet and reserved. You don't ever want to act too boldly or rashly.

It's easy for you to feel overwhelmed. You are very sensitive, and you prefer to stick to your comfort zone.

Those who know you best know that you have a lot to offer. You are as kind and as selfless as they come.


We Seriously Need A Paperless Office Software

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 05:03:00 PM 1 comments
It would be nice if we have a paperless office software at home that way it would be easier for us to organize important documents we keep in the office drawers. the drawers are overflowing right now and I've got no place to store or keep them. Hubby did his best to make our office/master bedroom organized, but no luck. It's either we need an office or a paperless office software. I think the last one is the best option for it is less expensive than renovating our house, lol. Maybe, when he retires from work, we would have our own home office for our son would be out for college. J's room will be converted into an office. Now, I better tell hubby about the coolness of having a paperless office software home. I am certain he would agree....for it is indeed a "must" in our home.

Halloween Costume

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 04:40:00 PM 0 comments
Halloween is past approaching and my son keeps bugging me about the costume he wanted to wear for trick or treating. So, the other day while shopping for groceries, hubby and I looked for a costume J likes which is Luigi that way it matches his friend's costume which is Mario. Yup, they wanted to be Mario Brothers :-). Good thing they have that costume. We bought it for  and we hid it so it would be a surprised. I am sure he'll be very happy when he finds out that we got him his costume already. Anyway, while there at the store, hubby and I were teasing each other as to what costume we would wear for Halloween. He laughed when I showed him the playboy bunny costume. Why? Because he knew that I would not wear it. Honestly, I can't imagine myself wearing it, that is not my type of costume and it won't look good one me either.

Goulds Pumps

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 04:10:00 PM 0 comments
Summer time is almost gone...which mean the hot temperature or weather will soon be replaced with cool and them eventually cold or freezing ones. Oh I couldn't wait for the fall and winter times where we would be able to enjoy the outdoors. I don't know about you, but this over 100 degrees is driving me nuts! I am so ready for the cool weather. I think this is the best time to get water pumps and other accessories. At goulds pumps you can find any water waste accessories, irrigation stuffs and turfs. The waterpark where we go to during summer time is a pretty neat park. I think they can use this company for water pumps. I wonder if we can get a small water pumps for our house...hmmm. I better check it out :-).

My Bathroom Habits Says I Am Selfless

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 04:05:00 PM 0 comments
Honestly speaking, every word stated here are very true. I am indeed a selfless person who will give everything I have just to help someone who is in need. Even to this day that I already have my own family, I still help my family overseas; whatever they need, be it emotional or financial support I am here for them. I am glad that I marry a person who is equally selfless as I am and he understand why I am helping my family back home. Serving selflessly is healthy in every relationship. It makes you fell happy at peace and contented. Yeah, and I do love stylish clothes, shy, simple and very practical but romantic at times.

Your Bathroom Habits Say You're Selfless

You are a giving soul. Way too giving, in fact. You often get stuck doing the dirty work that no one else will do.

You spend a lot on clothes, and you tend to be a very stylish dresser. However, it's hard for you to throw away trendy clothes when they go out of style.

You are a little shy and easily embarrassed. You often wonder if you are normal.

In relationships, you are practical and realistic. You have a romantic side, but you only let it out when it's appropriate.


A House Made of Metal

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 03:29:00 PM 0 comments
Right next to the community where we live, there stand a metal building that looks like a house to me. It is so pretty and very unique. Every time we pass by that building, I always tell my husband how much I like that house. He agreed. He told me that it would be neat if we have a house built from metal just like that metal building we both admire. I didn't know he is also fascinated with metal buildings which by the way is very common in the city where we now live. The metal building which I called house is very neat. I like how they painted it. My son J on the other hand thinks that the house is ugly, lol. Oh well, what would you expect from a 7 year old boy? Someday for sure, he would appreciate stuffs that are not attractive to him right now :-).

Saving for Water Softener System

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 03:05:00 PM 0 comments
Oh how I wished that we have at least a water softener systems at home. I am so tired of cleaning our bathrooms fixtures that accumulated a lot of scums. The faucets in the kitchen has got a lot of it, too. To those who have no water softener system at home, I am sure you know what I mean. Hubby and I talked about a water softener system before we moved in to our newly built house; and agreed that it would be a good investment for it will be good for our health as well as our appliances that use water such as washer and  dryer, dishwasher and even the water dispenser. We know how expensive it would be, but we decided to save for it. It's been over a year now, but we still don't have enough savings for it. Maybe if I get a job, then we would be able to afford it.

Finding Nurse Uniforms are Easy

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 02:54:00 PM 0 comments
The other day while I was at the mall with my husband, I did a little shopping myself while he was returning the necklace he bought me for our 10th wedding anniversary last week. I told him that I don't need that expensive necklace; plus I already have a necklace and I do not need another one. And so, we agreed on returning it and just getting myself something I would be able to use. What I did is shopped for  clothes I can use at church on Sundays. I got myself a couple of blouses and a t-shirt which only cost me under $40! It was a deal...I would have paid hundred bucks for the three of them if they are not on clearance sale. After I am done shopping, I met hubby at the fast food and have had our lunch there. While eating our lunch, I thought our son a new pair of sneaker....and so we looked around for a shoe store. Too bad I didn't find the shoe I want to him and so we looked and looked and looked but no luck. I wish finding kids shoes is easy as finding  nursing uniforms. Nursing uniforms are easy to find for they are like everywhere. They are so cute and inexpensive! Oh well, I guess I better check out the outlet mall near our place for J's shoes.

Seasonal Allergy Strikes Again

Posted by Cecile at 9/29/2011 02:38:00 PM 0 comments
The other night J started coughing again. He couldn't sleep and I was so worried about him. He needs at least 10 hours of sleep so he would have energy playing after a whole day at school. I thought his coughing would stop, but after a couple of hours, he was still awake coughing like crazy. As a Mom, I took the liberty of giving him his allergy medicine. Thank goodness, after few minutes, he stopped coughing is is already snoring :-). I wish the allergy would stay so tired of it. In a few more weeks I am sure it is going to get worst and my poor son will going to suffer again. His tonsil will swell again and he would have difficulty swallowing foods. This is not new that is why I am pissed off. I don't understand why I am not getting allergy, but my hubby and son do. I am not's just that it is an inconvenience on their part. Oh well, I guess I just need to get use to it and move on.

We Are All Excited!

Posted by Cecile at 9/22/2011 07:27:00 PM 0 comments
A friend of ours from Richardson, TX had made baby announcements about a week ago; and we are all thrilled! Finally, she is pregnant again after losing her third pregnancy almost four years ago. I just hope and pray that she would lose her baby this time. I know hard it is to lose a baby because I have lost mine first child while she was still inside my tummy. It was devastating. I am glad hubby and I were able to cope up with that great trial in our lives...and that God loves us that He even gave us a son whom we love and adore. These past few months, many babies in our ward have been borne healthy. I am happy for their parents. I just wish that we could have more children, but due to my health issue, my doctor advised us not o get pregnant again for it will be very risky both for me and the baby's life. And so we followed hi advised...and we are all happy!

Celebrity Marriages

Posted by Cecile at 9/22/2011 07:15:00 PM 0 comments
I know in my heart that celebrities are human, too. They have feeling and they get hurt sometimes. Sometimes the reason they get hurts is because of the media. And that is so sad and not healthy for them. I don't really watch a lot of movies for not all of the movies they make these days are not really good. It doesn't help us to live morally and in peace. I like those that teach values that doesn't offend God and us. Anyway, every once in a while, while waiting at the counter to pay for my groceries, I will glance at those magazines that talk about celebrities. I like it when I read someone getting married, celebrities that are still married and those that didn't succeed in their marriages. For, I think it is the choices we make depends whether our marriages succeed or not. But unfortunately, many celebrity couples ended on divorce :-(. Oh well, what can they do, right? The recent celebrity wedding news I' ve read was Reese Witherspoon's. I am so happy that finally, she found the guy who is right for her., plus her new husband is not a celebrity. I just hope that this time...would be the last time ...meaning their marriage would last a lifetime so they will all be happy. Now, if that happens...I can call it a healthy and happy marriage.

Wedding Anniversary Gift

Posted by Cecile at 9/16/2011 12:33:00 PM 1 comments
Look at the ring attached here. Doesn't this look great? I'll say It is! I like this ring because it is pretty and costs only under $150. I am wising that my husband would surprise me with this everlon ring I've found online. Everlon Diamond Knot Rope Ring is 1/7ct,  a steal for that price. Hubby can really afford it. Now, I just need to know how to give my husband a hint so he would get this for me as gift for our 10th wedding anniversary next week :-). Got any idea how? Let me know cause I am running out of time, lol.

So much for on that ring, hubby and I planned on going to the temple in the morning and then have a lunch at our favorite Indian restaurant near the temple. I think I need to arrange for a friend to pick my son up at school on the day of our anniversary.

She Looks So Cute

Posted by Cecile at 9/16/2011 12:27:00 PM 0 comments
If there is one thing I miss so much is being pregnant again. Yeah, I want to get pregnant again and fulfill my dreams to have a big family. But my sickness cut that dream off. Thank goodness God has given me one precious kid whom we adore so much! I still envy my friends at church who are pregnant and few of them have already given birth. Some are still pregnant and are wearing cute maternity clothes. Kelly, though a little bit big for his size still looks lovely on her  cheap maternity clothes she bought online. Now, that she has given birth to a healthy baby boy, I would be missing her with the cute maternity clothes on. Oh well, am sure she'll get pregnant again in a year or two. For now, I need to visit her and bring her meals she absolutely loves which is egg roll that she always rave about!

The Need for New Bedding

Posted by Cecile at 9/15/2011 08:29:00 PM 0 comments
It's been years since I last purchased comforters and bedspreads for the three beds in our house. And I now consider replacing them with new ones. I am pretty sure that hubby will not agree on that, but I do it anyway for the beds need new bedding. A couple of weeks ago, my friend and I went to the mall for some shopping. She bought a new comforter for the bed in their master bedroom; back then I didn't think about buying one for us. But later on I thought that it would be nice to get new bedspreads and comforters at least for the bed in my son's  bedroom and also for the guestroom.

The other day, while having another lunch date with my friend again, she mentioned to me that she had returned the comforter shoe bought for her husband didn't like the comforter particularly the color and the price. I thought she got great deal on that since it was on sale. Oh well, I thought I would buy mine there, too. Good thing she told that to me, now I know where to buy best looking and quality made bedspreads and comforters; yes it will be online at I visited their site and found that they carry the best bedding on the market today :-).

Great Use of Medical Cart

Posted by Cecile at 9/07/2011 08:12:00 PM 0 comments
 With my medical condition, I have been in and out of the hospital ever since I was diagnosed with a kidney disease called FSGS and IGA neprophaty.  These two rare diseases caused my kidney to fail drastically. I was very afraid for me, my husband and most of all for my 18 month old baby boy. With my kidney not working, I went for 8 months dialysis before I finally get a transplant. Despite of the successful procedure that I have gone through, I still need to go to the hospital when complications arise. I have seen how the doctors and nurses worked hard to save our lives. I feel blessed to have such caring and kind medical staff who works with love. Nurses are the hard working people I know when it comes to taking care of patience, and I am glad that modern technology made their work easier. The medical cart was a great help for the nurses who works 12 hours a day. To me, it is a work of love...I meant what they do for us, patients. I am grateful for them...forever!

Tenth Year Wedding Anniversary

Posted by Cecile at 9/07/2011 07:28:00 PM 0 comments
Our tenth year wedding anniversary is fast approaching and I don't have any idea of the gift I will give to my dear husband. I wanted to surprise him with something he will be excited about when he opens his gift. But knowing my husband, he always tell me that he doesn't need any gift; and that is the reason why I only buy him card and chocolates. Since it is (our anniversary) very important occasion, I am looking for  boyfriend gift ideas just because I wanted to remind him of the first time we met. He flew all the way from United States to Malaysia to see me...and I think he deserve something special for such sweet thing. If I can't find a gift for him, I am sure he wouldn't mind a dinner date at his favorite restaurant without our son, just us (this time) :-)!

Blessed with Great Doctors

Posted by Cecile at 9/07/2011 06:57:00 PM 0 comments
About three weeks ago, my gynecologist did a Novasure in me. This procedure was requested by my transplant doctor because it is necessary. My monthly period had left me anemic. I suffered severe anemia because of heavy bleeding during my period. I was always tired, dizzy, no energy to do anything and I was always weak. And so, after two years of bleeding excessively, we decided that it is time to do the right thing. Thank God, I agreed to do the procedure, now I am stronger than I've ever been. I am physically active again, happy and no more bed rest and things like that. I am so blessed to have such doctors who look after my health making sure that my health is taken care of. It is nice to be back to my old self again.
