My friends over Twitter are all busy doing their photo book these past few days. There’s an on going promo from Artscow that’s why most of them are busy doing their layouts. Me on the other hand are looking for a perfect photo frame gifts for my mother. She’ll be celebrating her birthday this 2nd of August and I have the perfect photo layout for her. I’m also hunting designs and ideas on how to arrange photos over our wall. Look at the sample below, it’s a good way to post your photos. I love the black frames. Perfect for all colored painted walls.
Not every mom is lucky enough to be at stay at home parent. For some, a career choice or financial reasons are factors why mothers have to find work. Now motherhood alone is already a busy task and having to juggle time in between family and work is a tougher challenge. Time management is very important in order to provide the same amount of quality time between the two.
Here are some tips on how you can divide your time as a busy working mom:
Set up a schedule for household chores and follow them. Make a list of the tasks that you have to do for the day. In most cases, dinner preparation is a mom’s thing. Prepare the menu ahead of time so that you won’t need to think about it at the last minute.
Even at a young age, teach your kids about responsibilities. Let them help out in small ways such setting the table, folding the laundry or cleaning their rooms. Encourage them to participate in household activities and let them learn chores that are easy.
Do all your errands during the weekend or at night. Except for banking activities, you could set aside other errands for the weekend such as mails, bill payments and grocery shopping. It will be better to do and finish everything in one day to save time and money on gas.
Do not forget to amidst the crazy schedule, have some quality alone time. Go to the salon or get a massage once in a while in order to relieve stress and relax.

It was here when I first experienced my loneliness, depression or whatever failure you can call it – for not being able to update in Instagram. And now, after almost 3 months of using my favorite app on my iPhone, here I am again, stressed with Instagram. Stressed because I can’t login. It keeps on telling me that it fails to connect to the login server and that I need to check if I’m connected with the wifi. Hayst! I tried all the troubleshooting steps that I need the previous time. It’s been 2 weeks since my last update. I envy my Bebot girlfriends for this. I already submitted a trouble ticket to Instagram Help desk, I hope that they reply soon.
Here’s a screen shot of the error message. If you by any chance encountered this problem, please let me know how to solve it. I appreciate any troubleshooting procedures you can recommend. TIA
I miss going to the movies. The last movie that I’ve seen on the big screen was a Filipino movie “My Amnesia Girl”. I haven’t been in the theater for almost 8 months now. I’m hoping that my next visit will be watching “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1”. Yes, I’m a Twilighter fan like you. And I’m excited to see Edward and Bella again on the big screen. Insha Allah God willing, by November I’ll get to see them once again. For now, these two movies who hits the big screen big time, I’ll just wait for the DVD release
I’m not updated with the news around the world, except the current political issues here in Syria and some bed weather news back home. But when I tuned in to CNN the other day and heard about Norway’s tragedy, it made my heart melts. It’s like repeating what had happened in 9-11. My prayers for those people whose lives are in peace right now and for their families too.
In memory of the eight people killed in Friday’s explosion in Oslo and the 68 who died in the shooting at the youth camp on Utoya, people place letters, flowers and candles in many cities in Norway and around the world showing the sympathy they feels for the victims of the tragic incidents and their families and friends.
