Sunday School: The Waiting Game

I may not have mentioned this before, but I am a Sunday School teacher for the youth department in our church. I teach them about the basic Bible truths - what we believe and why we believe it. Our youth department is a group of teens and young adults aged fourteen to twenty-six years old if I'm not mistaken.

Since my (let's just say) students are youth, I try to be as perky as I can be while teaching. Yes, to the point that I become too corny already, lol! That is because I believe that you can mix fun and learning.

Thursday Thoughts: What Kept us Busy Recently?

I just realized that my last blog post was seven days ago already. I've not written anything for this week yet. Where was I? I guess I took another short hiatus, lol! Kidding aside, the main reason why I couldn't write often now was that our youngest sister is not here anymore, she's back to schooling after taking a pause for one school year.

Now, I can only write when someone is taking care of Nate or when he's sleeping. And that's fine, I mean, I don't see any problems with the new set up. After all, this blog is about our lives and our parenting journey. There's no pressure at all. :) But of course, I still try to blog as often as I can because this is what I love to do.

For this week though, here are the things that kept us busy at home.

I spent the entire day off last Monday with Nate. We slept, read and played. Monday is supposedly the day for me to catch up on my blogging but I didn't do it this time. Our room was a mess and I didn't care, I just wanted to rest and have more time with Nate.

In our messy bed, my grumpy #wokeuplikethis face, and no, that's not eyeshadow, that's black eye! I don't know how I got that, maybe Nate threw something that hit my eye, lol!

WAHM Tips: The Importance of Having a Back Up When Working at Home

Real talk: not all who work from home have a control over their time. I am among those who work at home with on a scheduled working hour. I have to be online Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 5 PM US Eastern time (that's 9 PM to 5 am PH time during daylight savings and 10 PM to 6 AM during standard time).

Here's what happened yesterday: it rained hard around 4:30 to 5:30 PM, just a few minutes after we went home from the grocery store. Yay, bed weather is coming! We were all happy for the rain since it was too hot yesterday. Everything was great until we had a brownout. Apparently, it's a transformer issue that's causing the power outage. Our neighbors called the people in charge to have it fixed but they were told the outage could take 4-6 hours.

I woke up at 8:30 PM, 30 minutes before my log-in time and there was still no electricity. So, with a candle in hand, I went to my work table and prepared to go to work. I had a backup ready so I was still able to work despite the power outage. How did I do it? These are the things that saved my day at work:

The BPI Express Credit (eCredit)

Those who read my blog from time to time know that I am new to the credit card world. I just had one via BPI secured credit card. So far, I only use it for grocery, Globe bill and emergency purchases just like my recent Plantronics headset order.

I know the credit limit is just too low (yes, it's just 9k, lol), I make sure to remind myself not to use it for things I don't need. So far, I don't have any problems when it comes to self-control VS my secured credit card. lol.

The Waiting

Sharing the song that has been my constant reminder every time I miss my husband. God willing, in five month's time, Dane will finally be home from Riyadh, KSA. Who would've thought it's almost two years already since we said our goodbyes at the airport? Many say that it was too fast.
