Hello Friday!

How are y'all? I haven't been updating this blog lately because my hands are tied at work. I wish I can do more in a day but my body and brain gets tired after a long day at work. It's the Memorial Day weekend and we're hoping that we get busy at work this weekend. I am sure it's gonna be a long weekend for us.

I am enjoying my hobby. I love sending and receiving postcards all over the world. It all started when I first came here in United States. I sent postcards to my friends where ever I am. Now, that hobby is coming back to life and it's my friend's turn to send me postcards.

The Smart Cover

Long before the iPad 2 came out in the market, I knew right then that I want one. Since the first version of iPad was introduced to the people, many have dreamt of owning one. With its new technical specifications, the lighter, the better. I am such a sucker for new gadgets. I make it a point that I save enough money to get what I want.

I have made a list-of-my-want-things that I want to buy in sooner or later. I also added in my list to buy the customized classic horizontal iPad sleeve for my iPad's protection from dirt and grime. I like taking care of my things for a reason that I want to get my money's worth and I want my gadgets to last for years or a lifetime. I can also get the classic vertical custom iPad sleeves. Whatever suits my personality, I will get it in time. I wish it's my birthday today to have all of these. I'll definitely have a beaming face when it happens.

All About Mirrors

I don't think I could live in a house without a mirror. It's a must in my beautiful home. If I could do it, I want a Leaning wall mirror in every room of the house. So wherever room I may be, I could see myself all the time. But the thought of it makes me wonder to dream of a glass house with lots of wall mirrors. Maybe, my future dream house can make it happen. In that way, I can always ask myself - mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?

Organized Your Home

Moving, packing and unpacking is really stressful. If I have the means, I could just hire people to do it for me, including interior decorating to make it look like a home. But I know that I can save my bucks if I can do it on my own. So looking for the best quality Corner Etagere Shelves would be a good idea to organized all my trinket collection. Sometimes, finding the right furniture for your house would make it a lot better because you know it will add beauty to your home. There's no need to hire people to make a beautiful home.

Remarkable Sunset

I have seen lots of sunset pictures. They're all beautiful. In the northern part of the country where we live, spring season is always late to appear. The weather could be misty, dreary, gloomy, cloudy, windy and it's really unpredictable. We barely get full sunshine all day but we are happy if sunshine will peek at us even if we're not expecting it. Just take a look at the photo above. It's just remarkable!

Are You A Victim?

Some of my friends here in North Dakota work at the center where they tend special services to kids with disabilities. It's hard to see when kids have disabilities. They don't get to enjoy their childhood. You can see them only in bed or wheelchairs. It breaks my heart to see them in different incapacity condition.

The reason could have been when their mothers are still pregnant. Pregnant women who took topamax without knowing it's bad side effects. If you have been a victim, consult a lawyer and get information about topamax lawsuit. Know your rights and don't be a victim.

Taking Topamax during pregnancy has been associated with the following birth defects:

  • Cleft lip or cleft palate, which can lead to a hole in the roof of the mouth that can cause complications for breathing, as well as feeding and receiving adequate nutrition. This birth defect usually requires surgery in order to correct it.
  • Decreased fetal weight.
  • Hypospadias, also known by the more common term of genital defects. This usually only occurs in male babies, and involves the urethra opening being located on the bottom side of the penis, rather than at the end, where it is normally located.

What Kind of Sweater Are You?

You Are a Turtleneck Sweater

You are sophisticated, streetwise, and even a little cynical.

You are quite cultured, and you don't fall for gimmicks or trends easily.

You are naturally chic. You have a urban, cosmopolitan style.

And you know that the secret to looking good is not trying too hard!

Bad Side Effects

When we get sick, we take some pills to make us feel better. But not all medicines would make us feel better, most medicines had side effects that will make you ill in the end. I have been hearing about these commercials on TV about lawsuits for about a certain legal information. One of which is about this drug called zoloft. There are several other serious side effects that Zoloft may cause - it may be behavioral, psychological or physical. Seek legal counsel if you have been a victim.

It's Mother's Day

Words are believed to be very powerful and if used wisely, can be etched deep into the memory of the person to whom they're intended. Expressing yourself in long sentences doesn't guarantee your feelings to be understood in the same way you wanted. But using the power of words to your advantage by creating short but crisp sentences will make even the unsaid of things heard out loud. You were there for me to love and care for me when skies were gray. When ever I was down you were there to comfort me. And no one else can be what you have been to me. You will always be the girl in my life for all times. Happy Mother's Day, Mama! I love you so much!
