It is almost time for me to send a care package for my family to the Philippines. I remember the last time I sent them one was Christmas of last year. It's been six months now and I already have something for my eldest brother. I am giving him our old printer/scanner which is still in good working condition. This will help him with his internet cafe. He is pretty excited about it. Now, I am busy shopping online for stuffs that my nieces need for school and for work. Shopping online is very easy and can be addictive, too especially if you find great deals on the things that you don't really need like clothes, toys, and perfumes. I should be looking for a guitar that my nieces need. One of them mentioned with me to buy Line 6 brand guitar for her. I didn't say I'll buy her one since it is kind of expensive; maybe someday when I have enough money or became rich. For now, what they really need is a computer, and some stuffs for their kitchen and bedrooms since they just moved in the a new apartment. Care package needs to be sent soon.

I have gotten used to exercising once a day for at least half an hour, but today I didn't do it due to being sick. I felt guilty not being able to walk today :-/. Not walking today made me eat a little better. I ate little and rested, too. I feel much better now and hopefully, I would be able to walk/exercise again tomorrow. Sad to say, that I even cancelled/rescheduled my lab work this morning to next week. The headache caused by my PMS and colds made me feel worst this morning. Thank goodness, after I took a nap this afternoon, I felt much better now. I learned today that pushing yourself into doing something you normally do even for the health sake is not good for the health. Taking a break and having a restful sleep instead is better.

When the contractors started building our house three years ago, they told us that we can check the status of the house if we want to. So, we decided to drive to the site at least once a week and more than once when the house is almost done. We took pictures of the house every time we go there. There were times where workers are still working when we go there and noticed a lot of improvements. We also saw one time during one of our visit that they used Heat tubing installing appliances. I even asked my husband what those things are for...and he said something like to protect the appliances. We sure were glad for that small thing that helps a lot in keeping our appliances last longer and work better.

Today, my friend and I went for a walk in the park. It took us an hour and ah half to finish walking around the pond and back home. I felt good inside though fr whatever reason the lower part of my hips were aching. Good thing that as soon as I sat down on the couch the pain went away. I wonder why it hurt so much. I have been walking for a week now, but I have had pain on my lower hips till today. I was thinking that maybe it 's because my body is building muscles which is good. I couldn't wait ti that muscle building is over, then I would be able to lose weight afterward :-).

My husband is a self proclaim handyman. He can fix almost everything in our house from plumbing, electronic installations to fixing a car. The reasons why we save a lot of money; instead of hiring someone to fix them for us, he does it himself. Am I lucky wife or what? Last week, he replaced the break pad of our van, changed oil and replaced the damaged window cause by the hailstorm. Now, he is planning on buying a bosch o2 sensor fr his car to help measure the distribution of fuel and air ratio in it. I wonder how much it will cost us to get this part for both cars. I guess, we just need to check it online or go directly to the places where they sell it. I just hope it wouldn't as expensive as I thought it would be for we don't have enough savings for it yet.
