Brian was so impressed with the new HP elite 9040, this is a cool toy for Brian. He loves all the features that built in. If you like to know more features, go visit the hp.com and look this model. He was so happy that I told him that he can buy it. I am supposed to buy a new a laptop, I am planning to get a Macbook but then he bought me a new camera instead. I hope I can still get my laptop after my birthday. I am hoping that we can get enough money or else I will wait for our tax refund LOL...

I was asking for Brian a new camera for my birthday. He was asking me what's wrong with my sony camera and I said. It does not get good pictures, I always get blurred pictures if the kids suddenly move. There is no clarity of my shots. I never thought that he is going to buy this early. My birthday will be on 14th next month.
I was looking for good camera online last night and I heard few rumors that Nikon was really good. I just want the professional look of camera where I can get a wide angle if I am going to get a shot for scenery. I love scenery photos and I just love to collects some photos here in WA before we leave for Japan.
I checked the customers reviews and even the consumers report online. Oh boy! this camera is better than Sony.... people are giving their views. I am so sure those are professionals photographers. 4.8 out of 5 is the review which is pretty cool review.
We went to the Silverdale today, we visited Best Buy and Circuit city. Main target is computer and a camera. Brian was a bit curious because I love small electronics where I will go for a bit heavy camera. He bought it at Circuit City and I just fell in love with my cam. I know you guys love the features. I really love and will study all the features that it is on. I am planning to buy a new lenses as soon as we have enough money and extra battery.

Wow I never thought that today is Christmas day. It feels like an ordinary day where everyone celebrates or everyone had a get together with their friends and family. Bill Hotzel called this morning and reminded us to come in their house for a get together. Yes we planned to come and at noon, the snow started falling and I was so happy because we had a white christmas. Benjamin was telling me that rain is falling and I said uh uh.. it is snow! Mary was just watching in the outside and I kept pointing it to her that it is snow. At about 3pm, snow still falling and did not stop. Brian called them that we could not make it. It is so hard with the kids travelling with snow. It scared me. But then I cooked right away a steamed broccolli, cook the chicken and beef that I marinated, and then I made a fried rice. I was trying to think what else I am gonna cook. So, I put out Brian's kitchen aid mixer and I made cookies. My cookies is so good, nobody won't say it is not good LOL. We eat lunch/dinner, Benjamin as always did not eat and I was so glad Mary did ate. I just love it when they are still baby, they eat anything you give it to them. I was wishing Benjamin is just like that but he knew now to say ewwwww. It made me sad and upset sometimes. I cook the food and he never eat it.
So then... I was asking to Brian to finish cooking my cookies while I was putting Mary in her nap. This is kid is funny, she was bringing her blanket to me and said Mommmy dede and she pointed my breast LOL.. She is sleeping now..

Brian is asking me if I could come to Bremerton today, we need to submit our no fee passport. It is an official passport where we can use when we will be moving to Japan. I just want to get regular passpost but then it is impossible for me to get it. They wanted also to see the official during the application. So I better get my tourist passport when we will be there in Japan. I can get it at the US embassy there and I think it won't take so long to process. When we will be there that is the first thing that I need to do. So I can visit to Philippines without worry. I just wanted to see my family and they are so anxious to see and meet Mary and of course to Ben too..

We just watching movies tonight with Ben, Mary and Brian. We were enjoying the movies. I never watch the movie Candleshoe. It is really cool movie. I just love Judy Foster how she did in the movie. We were so funny because it seemed that we forgot to eat dinner. We just had a late lunch and never thought of having dinner. I jsut wanna feed the kids so thats why I remember dinner LOL.
We were watching 3 movies today. The Ferris Bulleurs day off- it is really cool. There are some bad language but we tried to explain to Ben and Mary that those are words that they did not try to imitate.

This is an article I read from sparkperople.com, it really helps to keep you motivated. Just read it below and enjoy!
9 Hidden Reasons to Stay Motivated
Ways to Rediscover Your Drive
-- By Zach Van Hart, Staff Writer
Everyone tells us to stay motivated. Our friends, our co-workers, our relatives say to keep going, don’t quit. Sometimes, though, you ask, "Why? Why try my hardest when it ends in disappointment? Why go through something when it’s going to hurt? Why?"Because it’s going to
be different this time!
Because you can’t accomplish anything that you give up on. Disappointments and failures happen to everyone. The difference between those who reach their goals and those who don’t is staying motivated. If you’re motivated, you’ll keep going. If you keep going, eventually you’ll reach your goal.Need more reasons?
Here are 10 of our ‘hidden’ reasons to stay motivated. Use one or all of them to keep the fire burning inside you.
1. ConfidenceHow did it feel after that first jog around the block? Or when you finally walked the stairs at work without losing your breath? The more you accomplish, the more you’ll believe in yourself.
2. Fit into that dressIt’s been hanging up in your closet for two years now, just waiting to be thrown on for a night on the town. All it takes is for you to go that extra mile and stay on track. Before you know it, those two years will be ancient history.
3. Make the week easierEver felt like a week was taking forever? It feels like Friday, but it’s only Tuesday? This happens when you’re not working towards anything. When you have a goal in mind, you’ll want to cook that healthy dinner or go to the gym. The week will not only go faster, but be more enjoyable.
4. Gives you purposeEvery once in a while, we need a good reason to get out of bed. Here it is, right in front of you. Eat the healthy breakfast that’s going to jump start your day, go for your morning jog, or walk to the driveway and grab the newspaper. When you’re motivated, you have a reason to do what you do.
5. For your kidsAnd your grandkids. And their kids, too. The healthier you are, the longer you’ll be around to watch your kids grow and to spoil your grandchildren. They’ll want you to be around as long as possible; consider this just another present.
6. Power of momentumIt’s a scientific fact – something in motion tends to stay in motion. Momentum builds quickly and can lead to great results. Suddenly, you’re not only working for the goal, but also to keep your streak alive. Even more reason to reach your goals.
7. The ‘wow’ effectPicture this: Walking into a bar, you run into someone from high school, and their eyes light up. They gasp, "Wow, you look great!" By sticking with your goals, this can happen. Watch the "wows" add up.
8. Spread the sparkWhen friends and family see how hard you’re working, they’ll wonder how they can reach their own goals. Guess who they’re going to look to for help? By staying motivated, you’ll not only help yourself, but others too.
9. Keep gaining experienceThe more you do, the more you will learn and understand. You’ll discover which tactics work best for you and which ones don’t. It’s like weeding out the garden - not the most enjoyable job in the world, but when you’re done, all that’s left are beautiful flowers. Keeping sticking with it and soon it will be all flowers for you.

I was reading an article from sparkpeople.com this morning that buying a vitamin and mineral supplements is just like going to the candy shop. I guess it is true, you can pretty much buy vitamin supplements in a grocery store or even online store. I am not used of taking vitamins but I am taking pre-natal vitamins still because I still nursing my Mary. At least she will get my extra vitamins not the vitamins that needs me to keep going in my daily routine. I read one time, it is an article. I just forgot where I read it. But if you nurse your kids and you don't have enough or low vitamins present in your body. You will be having a bone problem in the future. This is what I am afraid of, thats why I am still taking my vitamins but after this- I dunno if I still do it. The food that I am eating is enough for me to get the vitamins that I needed. Eating fresh vegetables, meat and energy food...made you healthy. I don't think that those vitamin pills is safe to take... Better check those pills....

We went to the store yesterday and Benjamin bought a skateboard toy. He knew that he can buy only one toy everytime we visited to the store. It is cool right, he won't grabbed lots of toys and screamed at me to buy it LOL...pretty good training.
He lost his skateboard toy when he was sleeping, he was asking me to find it. Good thing I did. It is a power ranger skateboard LOL....
I woke up early again, I heard the sound of the water running. It was Brian who wanted to take a bath. Oh boy! It is really noisy. It is just like that it was raining so hard and it has a big downpour. Let me say! SCARY! So, I finally woke up and went to the bathroom and do my thing. Whatever you SAY! LOL.
I was trying to clean up the mess to the kids last night. I was falling asleep again and I just wanted to clean some of the mess they made yesterday afternoon. How you keep up your house clean that has 2 toddlers running around the house? This made me crazy! But anyways, no complain whatever! It is my job to look after with my two little angels. They are my life....
Brian bid goodbye for work, he looked in the outside and there is no snow. They forecast was change and I am glad with that. It is very cold in the outside and there is no rain here in house. Brian asked me to check the weather.com and it is forecasted that it is raining all day here in Bremerton - maybe not all day here in Belfair. My place is really cool. When you left at your house, there is no frost but when you drive 2 or 3 miles away. You can see the bushes that is frosted. My little community is a kind of has micro climate LOL.

Brian and Ben flewn yesterday and arrived here in Seatac at around 1:45pm. I thought they arrive early so then I did not attended church. It should be I do. I just heard from Jessica that Amanda's kids are sick and not sure for Kimmy's kids. If they went there, what about they will sing songs for Jesus. Mary and I woke up early but then I still tired from my stressed Friday- during my troubled life in my interview.
I am so glad that I am not scared to drive in heavy traffic. I am quick enough now to watch whats going on on the road. We never know what is ahead, so we better watch out! I was so happy to see my boys yesterday, Brian called me while I was parking the car at the cellphone lot. I drove right away and get them home. Brian never watch the food that he is eating while they are on on the plane. He eat the food in a box that they prepared- there is sea salt. I just could not imagine that he is allergic to sea salt. I wonder if he will be going back to the Philippines, where we are using sea salt. I must be careful with this... I feel bad if he had an allergic reactions. He is always my OA bana LOL.
