Morning Date with my Friend

I slept late last night because it's spring break in our school. I like to watch movies when it's holiday or spring break, just to relax and unwind myself. I read books too for me to be encouraged in other aspect in life. So, I had fun and I slept at 3 in the morning today.Then, a friend of mine Irene, came and invited me to have a coffee at Starbucks before she left to her yoga class.

It was a short morning date,but worth it.It's a good way to keep in touch despite the busy schedule of my nurse friend.I simply love coffee dates, it's a simple joy for me to keep in touch with my love one's and friends.I am wondering if I would go back to take a nap later in the afternoon, because I only sleep for couple of hours.

Also, I am excited to do my new morning weight lifting and bike mode work out hoping it would prevent my migraine as I go along doing this in daily routine from now on even just for 30-1 hour a day or every other day.It's my goal to maintain my weight due to my scoliosis as well, at the same time, regardless of your structure I believe it's necessary to work out or take a walk, bike,or running, whatever works best for you to help keep your body healthy. Now, that the pace in life is faster than before, I realize that a regular walk or bike, or run, is good for ones health.I am not strict to my time of doing it in terms of "time/minutes". I started from 5-10 minutes, then, 15 minutes and so on. If I feel like doing it again for 5-10 minutes, I will do it, because, I rather choose to do it than not doing it at all. I follow my own way of doing it in a way that is comfortable to me, which makes me happy.

Though, my coffee with my friend is short, but I know she is having fun doing her yoga right now. I hope she will reach her goal of becoming more active and healthier is her lifestyle. The utmost goal of working out for me is not losing weight, it's the endurance of doing it, and becoming healthier person in the long run, as well as making it a part of your life.That is where I failed at some point of the year especially, during winter time.However, the quotation in life " the winner never quits but the quitter never wins" is applicable to keep on moving forward in working out (walk,run,bike...) until it will become a part of my lifestyle.It gives us a possibility to live a healthier and longer life, isn't it?

So, join me in taking time to walk, or bike mode in the gym,or run if you want, bike if you can, by taking it one day at time,hoping my migraine is prevented by doing this, maintaining good health, and making it as your additional hobby or outlet, or skill.

Part - time job, Student, Mom,Wife

It has been my long desire to have the opportunity to be able to finish my Master's Degree of Education.The time has come and I have been enjoying it.Also, I work as part time teacher assistant in the toddlers class for almost a year now. Sometimes, I miss working as a preschool teacher in the classroom. However, I need to focus in my class as well. I can't afford to fail. Tuition fee is way too expensive.

Aside from being a wife, taking care of my three kids is my priority. Kids grow up so fast. I could not believe my eldest son is already 13 years old. I guess guiding a teen age child is harder than watching a toddler. Being with my kids after school is my choice, and I like it at this time,knowing that one day kids will be on their own,at the same time, situation is a giving me a choice. At home, since I work part -time, at the same time studying, though I like to cook yet I drop the rule of cooking everyday. When I have long assignments and reading then, I just try to reheat the food in the microwave.I compromise my cooking schedule.I am not a good cook,but I cook.

Another is...since I am working part time, I gave up most of my wants, to avoid being over drop in our monthly budget.With my hubby, I never demand any thing that is beyond what he can provide.I am satisfied with spending time with him such as drinking coffee together at our table or balcony, or sometimes, he invite me to watch a movie with him or drink coffee with at Starbucks and I feel good with that.

Furthermore, sending a child to after school program here in the States, in quite expensive,that is why working part-time works best for me.I am hoping to finish my Master's Class next year 2015, God willing.I am trying my very best to study, and try to keep my momentum, as well as finding ways to give myself a little break, that is why going back to my blog is one thing that I thought of. This might be a good way to develop any concept of writing that I need to write every time I have an assignment.Online class needs focus on reading and more writing.I know this will help me relax when I need to pace myself from my class.

Part time job,student,mom,wife, is good but it needs full determination to focus and keep the momentum to study aside from doing the household responsibility. It is a choice that you make.

Daniel sings!

When Daniel was about 18 months old, I could hear her humming.She does it until now especially when doing her homework. She is a gifted girl with a beautiful voice. Also, I want her to enjoy her childhood,because childhood would come one's then all you  know they are all grown up.I like it when Daniel sings at home because it gives me and her a time together. She is a quiet little girl in our home. I hope Daniel can  sing more songs that she love's to sing.
