I woke up early today because I promised my kids a big breakfast. I was a bit disappointed because I don’t have all the needed ingredients for a big breakfast. I used all my onions yesterday for a pot roast. I don’t have bell peppers, mushroom and other stuff I needed; I could go to the store but just too lazy to drive. I managed to make us a breakfast anyway.
I made some fried taters with bacon and scrambled eggs, Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Pancakes. I am glad that my family loved what I made them.
The boys had an early Winter Break. The school called yesterday and canceled the class due to bad weather. Of course they were ecstatic about it. They will resume on January 5th of next year. Shaun is at his classmate’s b-day party and my other 2 kids are busy playing computer and video games.
I am so glad that they forgot to pressure me about putting up the Christmas tree last night. I just don’t want to put it up this year and they kept pressuring. Then again, they always forget later on. Anyway gotta go for now . Enjoy the weekends:)~
Got this tag from Carlota & Madelyn. It’s about how I met my husband, so I guess I have to tell the story again on how I wrap my husband around my finger ha ha ha. I am very lucky to have him in my life. So without further ado, here’s comes the tag…
Can you remember the day you first met your hubby?
** Yes I can! I met him one Saturday night on March 2001 in Southern California. I was with my cousin Jackie and we just got off from work. We always work overtime and usually go back home to change clothes and off for fun. He was with his marine friends and they just came from a wedding.
When was that? (doesn’t have to be specific)
**3rd Saturday of March 2001 night time….
**Annoyed but curious ..lol (mor aman sab tag High school ani)okay I was talking with my friend while my cousin was dancing with our other friend and so I was blabbing and yelling at my friend’s ear (coz we were at the club and it’s so loud). So he asked me if I knew that guy who was staring at us. I didn’t even noticed the guy who was staring both of us so I said with a quick answer of “NO”. After knowing that someone has been staring at me;hello of course I was curious and annoyed but then again too distracted to talk again since I felt weird when some stranger staring. So my friend has to go outside to answer his g-f’s call and I decided to sat on the table. Suddenly he started talking to me. Trust me ,I wasn’t friendly. So he moved onto my table and asked me if I want a “beer” ( I used to drink beer) and I said “I have a beer! shaking the bottle in front of his face. So he asked “why are you talking to that looser?” I looked at him in the eyes with my eyebrows raised and said” Why do you know him? and he answered”No” and I said..”So why the hell are you calling him a looser and you don’t even know my friend?” And then he paused… and he asked” What’s your name? ” and I said “what’s your name!” he told me his name was “RICKY” I am telling you, after he said Ricky? I was turned off! RICKY is the name I hated not because I have a bad experienced with a guy named Ricky but I just don’t freaking like RICKY! So i said my name was “IVY”. And he looked at me and said” That’s not your name!” and I said “Well, that’s not your name either!” . So he said his real name, and I said “uHu” and he took out his wallet and showed me his ID. So he asked me “What is your name?” and I said “IREL”, he said “yeah right, show me your ID!” and I said..”What are you CIA? Now would I show you something?” he said , “FINE”.. and I said” FINE!” silence…. then he said.. “You wanna dance?” and I said “Sure” and then he said” “Okay but not with this song!” and I said , “you wanna dance or not?”. he said ” yeah but not with this stupid ass song”. So after the song end , we danced on the floor. Interesting introduction huh?
Were you attracted to him?
** You know what’s weird? after I got curious who was looking at me, something was telling me on my head that ” meet your husband to be” seriously hahaha! I’m serious. that was weird..
Were you friends before he became your bf?
** I don’t even think we became officially boyfriends and girlfriends to tell you the truth! He never did courted me. And of course I never did say yes. coz he never courted me. The day after we met, He called and he drove over an hour to get to my place and went out. I took him to a Filipino restaurant and ate. I ate fish head in front of him. So after that we went to a movie theater and we watched”The Mexican” starr’s: Brad Pitt & Julia Roberts( That was a suck ass movie!). And after our first date, we call each other 2x everyday. He calls before I go to work and i call him after I get off from work. We also go out every weekend.
What was the sweetest thing he did for you?
** let’s see, he always accompany me to the bathroom everytime I wake him up, when I get scared to go by myself. I do get scared especially when I know someone I knew died or when i watched really scary movies, I always wake him up in the middle of the night and asked him to accompany me lol.
He always tell me that he loves me everyday, despite of my crappy mood swings..
and the sweetest gift he gave me was on our 5th yr. Anniversary.
Flowers and a glass heart with his message inside..
What are the things about him that you are thankful for?
** Many things.. my husband is great. Not only that he puts up with all my crap and mood swings but he always understand me, forgive me when I make mistakes, listened to me when I want to talk, supports me, believed me and of course he loved me when I am at my best and especially when I am at my worst!. My husband is understanding, faithful, supportive and loving.
It’s nice to share and hopefully read some of the story about you and your husband. So I am tagging everyone who has a time to do this, who would like to do this:) Happy Holidays!

The bus was late and it was super cold outside. It’s -3 degrees outside. 6:45 I went outside and turned my car on. Usually we just walk around the corner where the bus usually stops and wait for the children. But it’s winter and it’s cold so I made a point to start my car and just drive around the corner and wait for the bus to come around. Usually the regular bus driver comes on time. If he is absent then the substitute comes late. But today was very late! we were waiting for over 30 minutes. Good thing I drove my car so we didn’t have to wait outside freezing . I decided to drive my kids to their sub school. I stopped at Walgreens to get them something to munch since I didn’t woke up early enough to cook them breakfast and the other drive thru store were on the other side of my house. So anyway, i stopped at Walgreen and the damn thing is not even open and it was already 7:43 in the morning! I can see that lights were on inside probably those people who worked in there; decided to get a little quickie since nobody comes around in the morning anyway! So I turned around kept driving all the way to the boys’ sub school and I stopped at Super Target. The store opens up at 8 and I went inside grabbed them something to eat in the car and some juice. So off to their school and I saw only 1 bus parked. I was so glad that they let the kids inside and not let them wait in line. These are one of my complaints in this school! They let their students wait outside in the cold! I was so glad they let them in . It’s Nebraska and it gets cold but I don’t know why they let kids wait outside. My husband said that his co-worker told him that all the kids in all school in NE are like that. So I went back home and saw I have a message in my answering machine. It was a message from school. They were calling to let the parents know that the buses are running late… They called at 7:13 in the morning. Which is the usual time that the bus leaves in our waiting spot!!! Now why would they call at 7:13, which is the time for the bus to leave in one spot and off to another spot? if they call they should call at 7:00 AM where the kids are still inside the house!!How will the parents know if they called too late? wahh I am so whining because I am freezing!
I knew there was something off when I broke a glass in the kitchen. As I was making dinner and I put a glass on the counter and it rolled and fell on the floor. I told my husband that something bad is bound to happen. Like many American, he doesn’t believe in superstitious. Hours has passed and I still felt that something bad really happened and I was still uneasy. Later that night Elena woke up crying and I was so worried coz she wouldn’t tell me what happen to her. She was having a bad dream and after that i took her to the bathroom. After that Ethan was yelling, he had a bad dream so my husband brought Ethan to my room and he fell right back to sleep. It took me a while to sleep . Anyway, I woke up this morning and got into my messenger and saw offline messages from my friends and one from my cousin. She told me that my grandfather in my dad’s side died yesterday from a heart attack. I just knew something bad happened and it was it. I felt bad because I wasn’t there to see him and to tell him that I love him and missed him and to bid him goodbye. My grandmother must be really sad . They have been married for over 55 years. I don’t know how to tell my eldest son about my grandfather’s depart but I will wait to tell him after he eat his breakfast. May my grandfather rest in peace.
