My New Organizer and My New Columnar For This Year

Since I have a husband working abroad, I’ll make sure that when he sends us some money for bills or allowance, it is always posted in my budget notebook. You might call this an organizer for your busy schedule but for me I call this my budget notebook.

Nevertheless, I post all my expenses on this notebook, and at the bottom part, at the reminder notes, I wrote their all the things I need to pay for the week, my grocery budget and my sister’s pay out since I pay her in exchange of the things she is doing at home, when I am out for work.

If I post all the bills I need to pay on the day that my husband will wired me money, with this organizer, I can do it in advance since the dates are all posted already. (Of course that’s how organizer does right?) Thus, I will be able to do the budget a month in advance, in that way I can also save some money since I have all the bills taken good care already before it is due.

 

I also bought a columnar, about 22 columns so for me to be aware how much did we incur each month. And if we have incurred too much for a certain month, I make sure that we will improve by next month. Believe it or not, I know how much we spend for each year.

Feels Like Home In Alice Log House

Last month when we went to Buda, we stayed overnight in Alice Log House, the place itself is very inviting, it was so much winter feels because of the fogs. This log house built as a home for those families who would like to spend time in Buda with minimal costs. I love the way they design the house, if it’s too small outside wait when you get inside, the place is so wide, the living room is so cozy, the veranda is very relaxing and the kitchen is so amazing.

Here are some pictures of the Alice Log House. Feels like you are in your own home!

 

They said that they are still lawns there that are for sale and it’s very affordable. Now if you are going to buy a portion there, you can make it as like the Alice Log House.

This were inside the house, there were more, I’ll just have to look at those pictures again, until next!

Thank You and Happy New Year!

2018 is just around the corner and this year was a blast although it did not start good since I and Mj had a big fight before the year ends last year and it continued before her birthday on January. It was not good, I almost collapsed because of that fight but everything was settled. We were able to guide her and helped her realized that what we are doing was for her. So I should say thank you for the memories 2017 good or bad, I am now ready to face what store for me on 2018. But I want to say a word to my family who was always with me through thick or thin.

To my husband I know we have flaws, we are not perfect. But thank you for supporting me of whatever decision I have. Thank you for not quitting on us, thank you that even though we are miles apart for how many years already, you did not give up. You are still here for us; you are still supporting us that sometimes you don’t have anything at all because you gave it all to us. Thank you for being there. We miss you so much.

For my eldest daughter, MJ. Thank you for understanding it all, I know it is hard but you chose to follow me and I appreciate it so much. Thank you for taking good care of me when I got sick and was sent to the ER. You were so worried that you were not able to sleep just to make sure that I took my medicine right on time. Thank you for making up with your grades, you see you were able to make it just believe. I know you have so many dreams in life, just keep on achieving; I am just here willing to back you up. Remember, I, Daddy, Faith and Mariel love you so much.

To my youngest daughter, Faith. Don’t you know you are so adorable? Thank you for always making me laugh. I know you don’t mean to crack jokes but you being so innocent telling me things, I can’t help but laugh. You are my joy Faith. Thank you for the inspiring words, thank you for being the sweetest child I know. We love you to the moon and back.

To my niece, Mariel. I don’t treat you like anybody else but my own daughter. We had been together since you were in Grade 4. Thank you for doing your best to be a good Ate to your cousins, although there are times that you were stubborn but thank you for listening and following my advice,   I know that I over react sometimes over things just know that I am scared that you might decide of things that you will regret in the end. I over react maybe because I cared for you too much and please know that I am always here for you.  Follow your dreams because if you do, your future shines the brightest. I personally will back you up because we always love you.

To my other niece, Moreen. Thank you for being so responsible to your Mom and your family. I adore you being so strong for your family. I saw myself in you; I know that you will be able to surpass all the hardship because you are so determined. Your future awaits you with glam, and when you are already there, please take good care of your Mom, you are the only one whom she can depend on. Keep soaring Moreen!

To my nephews Dodong and Yanyan. You both became so close, study hard and I know you can make it. I know you both love basketball, but life doesn’t always surround to the sport you love, there is more adventures up there ready for you both but you have to study hard first and reach your goal and soon you will realized you will say they are right, they are absolutely right. Just continue to be responsible and everything will follow.

To my sisters, thank you for everything and happy New Year!

Simple Yet So Classy

We had our team building last weekend and I was amazed with the house that we stayed in. You see if you view the house outside, you would think that the house is just so small, I even wondered if all of us can fit in for that house. We were like 13 guests all in all; I was worried if I and Mj can still find a room for us since we came so late. But when I went inside and checked the house, it was so huge that there were still rooms that need to be vacated but of course most of us wanted to sleep in one area. We took the available for me and Mj, some slept in the area under the stairs going to the room, one slept in the living room and one slept in the entertainment area, most of us put all the beds in the space near the two bedrooms.

The house is made of wood except the floor in the kitchen area. I like the terrace near the entertainment area because you can see almost the whole view outside. What made it cool is at night if you will open the doors and the windows, fogs will rushing in. It was thin and oh so white that it could even touch in your skin however the cold is unbearable that you have to wear a parka or not you may want to double your jacket for you not to chill.

I love the whole, it was simple and yet so classy, when we took a picture of us, it looks like we were staying in one of the house in US!
