Thanks for the heads up Mommy Rose. Looking back into memories and sharing it with the others is really a great deal. So for my first entry ever, here’s my share of sweet cake.
This was taken on my 28th birthday. We celebrated it at Pizza Hut. Hubby left the restaurant I thought he’ll pick up some of our friends to come over, but he came up with this delicious cake that says “Happy Birthday Sweety”. My face is still swollen here. Why? I just gave birth. Julia was only 3wks old that year. Still trying to cope up with motherhood duties at night.
As much as I wanted to see the updates over our HSH, I couldn’t. Hubby’s cleaning the floors and window for 2 days in a row. I would like to help him to do it but since I have this big belly on the loose, he refused to. He said that he can manage and he’s doing it 1 day per room. Yesterday, he came home around 9 o’clock in the evening. The bedroom is ready for delivery tomorrow so he had to clean the master bedroom yesterday.
Today, he came earlier. 7 o’clock. He cleaned the salon and the veranda and had to remove a lot of cartons out of flat. I think the living room set will be delivered by 1st week of next month. The lights in the house are all working. Good thing our contractor is Hubby’s cousin, he was able to make sure to use an energy efficient outdoor lighting, as well in the inside.
We were planning to visit tomorrow to check on the house. But again, had to delay it probably by Monday or Tuesday. Julia’s bedroom set are scheduled to be delivered on Sunday.
The excitement is killing me really. But success comes to those who wait
I’m in search of a laptop stand. I’ve decided not to buy a desktop, instead to just buy a new laptop. The current laptop that I’m using is really for Hubby, but he let me used it for the mean time because the processor is much faster compare to MIL’s laptop which he’s using right now. He already formatted MIL’s OS to Windows XP because it used to run under Vista making it slower, but I need a number keypad separated from the QWERTY keyboard so here, I’m using Hubby’s laptop.
Anyway, the stand that I’m using right now is a laptop stand of my BIL. I wish we could find something that can be placed on the bed so that I can sit up straight properly. Hubby suggest to buy a computer cabinet instead. But the space here in my in-law’s house is not enough for that. I guess once everything is ready in the new house and that we’re ready to move in, we can arrange something like the photo below.
I need a big monitor. Why? because I’m blind It’s hard for me to work on things if the screen is not that big. That’s another reason why I chose to borrow hubby’s laptop too. It’ll be nice to do a scrap if you have this big screen right?
If you’re interested to join us with the 365 Days Project for this year, click on the image below to know the mechanics.
Tracy and the whole group can still welcome you even if we’re on the 2nd quarter of this year already. So go go go!
I don’t want to have too much blog back log on my 365 project so here goes the rest of the photos that was not included before.
Day 113 – The big sister’s gift for her baby sister.
Day 114 – My little girl all ready to take a nap.
Day 115 – Nesting mode on my 32nd week. Julie’s infants clothes are all ready. Her bag going to the hospital as well. But for my hospital clothes, not yet.
Day 116 – Feverish that morning due to running nose. Poor baby of mine.
Day 117 – My first EHD. Just finished reformatting it last night. It has a bug. Good thing that all files were not affected. It’s back to a new start w the same old content.
When it comes to downloading stuff over the internet, I always seek help from my other half. My hubby’s very particular with downloading a lot of things over the World Wide Web. He’s very keen and very observant with what to download in particular. We’re trying to avoid internet viruses as much as possible. For a SAHM like me who download free loads of digital-scrapbooking for example, he advised me to use a download manager to make it easier for me.
Here are some Open Source Software that Hubby is familiar with aside from the download manager that he’s using now.
For uploading and transferring files over the internet, he uses a FileZilla File Transfer. I might be using this since it’s the most convenient way to do a lot of things especially for a blogger like me who uploads files over the internet.
Freemind is another useful Java application which we can use if you’re a working mom for example and in need of a mapping application. My friend uses this since they need to construct a step by step process over their work before. I wonder how it went?
Here’s what I love most, GIMP Photo Software. Since I’m using a Photoshop with scrapping and editing photos, this one is an alternative application that will do a lot and retouch digital images too.
With regards to money matters, GnuCash Software is the best open source software to manage personal and small business finances. I wish I have tons of finances to think about. It’ll be nice to be organized with company bank accounts, income and expenses or even stocks (if you have) with this software. Dreaming on.
And last but not the least, Download Youtube Videos. Who don’t own a Facebook account here? Well, with this powerful utility, it can help you download videos from Youtube easily. The good thing here is that you can change the formats of the video so that it’ll be compatible with your gadgets. Cool right?
It’s all for free. Go ahead and try it.
It’s my first time ever to join this Weekend Blog Follower Caravan. I’ve been wanting to join this meme for so long, but I couldn’t install the GFC widget on my sidebar. So it took me a while to delay joining the meme. I thank Kaye for the quick post update on how to add the GFC widget for WP. I used to have this widget when I was in blogger. But when I moved, I totally forgot that I had them.
I’m so thankful for the whole group OnlineBiz and Resources for creating such wonderful ideas to help all blogger mommies to be connected in the blogosphere since we all have the same goal. To follow each each other and to increase all our rankings and readers, hahaha!
Anyway, enough of the talking. So here’s my welcome post for this week.
My name is Jhari. Currently a SAHM. Now holds 2 citizenship: Filipino and Lebanese. Happily married for 4 years and counting. I have a toddler. Her name is Julia and she’ll be a big sister soon since I’m on the way and expecting another girl by June Insha Allah God willing. We’ll name her Julie this time.
Been blogging for like 6 years I think. I have 2 more active blogs that I maintained. My fashion blog: The 3rd Abode: Fashion and my Meme blog: A Cup of Meme.
I can’t wait to have more friends. I thank you already for making my blogging life alive again.
