First Day of School

Today is the first day of school for my little ones’. The day started just fine. They woke up right away, got ready, ate breakfast and off we went. They git situated easily in their classrooms. Logan was playing it cool like any second timers. He went straight to his chair and started playing with the play doh that was waiting for him there. Izzy on the other hand was the all-excited-giddy one. She was quick to drop her thinges when she got in her classroom and went straight to the play kitchen area. I didn’t even got a chance to take a picture of her.

After we took them to their class, hubby and I went to the front office to straighten out Izzy’s enrollment issue. It took us 3 hours to get it fixed but I’m glad it was done and over with.

Right now, I’m enjoying the quite and my much needed rest. I had one of my horrible migraines last night and was really worried I wasn’t gonna make it at my kids first day of class. But God is good and I’m alright now.

Here’s to an awesome school year for our kids! Cheers and God bless!

Staining from the water that sits in the gutters can be more of an appearance issue instead of a maintenance issue. However, if you want to keep your home looking the best that it can, you should try to keep the water from standing for long periods of time so that there aren’t any streaks on the material.

Pests and mold can also accumulate if water is left in the gutters. Common pests are mosquitoes and ants.

Therefore, men have much more to lose than women do. After you find several men who have been through a divorce, talk to them about the lawyer who represented them. Ask the men if they are happy with the representation they received. Find out how well the divorces went for the men you talk to. Did they need to pay a lot in alimony? If they have children, were they awarded custody, or an acceptable amount of visitation?

Dream Backyard

A cozy corner paradise, a zen escape, a homey backyard, a fun play yard. Whatever your dream yard there’s always one out there for you. Most families dream of one were their kids can have an enjoyable play. Complete with the basic playground necessities like a swing, slide and of course the fort. Not every yard have a tree so a fort will do. But for the ones who do not have kids, an array of choices awaits. I personally would want a vegetable backyard. I’d make a vegetable garden in every inch of my yard. Ha! A mini organic farm. But since I have kids, we have the playground necessities. I still have a garden box, but not big enough though….

Someone I know want the zen escape. She does yoga so it is understandable. Knowing where to put things to maximize the use of space is the key to get that dream yard of yours. it could function into many purpose and not just for yoga, for example. Strategic putting of things can also doubles it as a great place to gather with friends for barbecue among other things. It will be a wonderful place for you to enjoy and for your friends as well.

Perfecting your Outdoor Space

Motherhood and College

One month and two days, that is how long I have embraced the role as a student. Another title added to my long list of talents and roles. Life as a student/mom/wife has been challenging. Juggling up housework, motherly duties and school homework has not been a walk in the park. My foresight has failed me. I thought it would be a piece of cake. Nonetheless, I love everything about being a student. A long time ago, I was a careless and non-driven student. My grades and my schooling did not mean much too me. Right now, I have all the inspiration and motivation in the world.
