Family Day

It's Sunday but i went to work for 4hrs. Not a whole lot of time but at least it's productive and i didn't even notice that it's almost time for me to leave. I get off early and still have a daylight outside and still a lot of time to spend with my daughter. It's Family Day Sunday and still a Family Day.

I'm a Pepper

When i was in the Philippines i have no idea what Dr. Pepper is. When my husband visit me there he wants Dr. Pepper and i found out that it's a soda. I just then knew that we sold it at store in the imported section. I tried it, i taste it and oh boy taste nasty! but now that i'm here i can't believe i'm addicted to Dr. Pepper. I'm the only one who has Dr. Pepper on every meal and my daughter and my husband has milk. I minimize it though cause of the caffeine but still i have one everyday.

Safety Recalls

It is important as a consumer to know and understand the safety and security of buying a certain products. We should be aware and informed of the products that's been put on recall right away as we enter into the store. We don't really know which one is gonna be cause we nobody knows until somebody tries it and something happened after and stores still selling cause it's tested and passed from the agency. Products like foods and drugs or clothes or toys and baby gears like strollers, car seats, swings and etc. As parents we are responsible for our child safety, whatever we offer to them they think it's good for them cause they trust us. It's really very true cause parents do and choose whats right and best for our kids, we are very cautious in choosing whats best for them.
For more information about recall products, i found this site:

Wise Consumer

Now a days it's expensive to have a baby some people are planning wisely and put on some savings just to start a family. We really not intend to do that as God said "go to the earth and multiply". It's really hard if people are not planning, now a days you have to pay for everything and prices are getting high. I worked on a baby store and it's nice to see couple who were excited to have a baby and become a family. One wise move when you are expecting a baby is having a baby shower,registering on a store for a baby shower helps a lot. Invites all your relatives, workmates and friends on your baby shower and inform them that you've been registered on a particular store and from there they start buying for you on what items you need for your baby. Baby is a blessings and people are gonna share their blessings for your baby. It's very helpful and every small items count cause baby needs alot of stuffs. Another wise consumer moved is to get a Protection Plan, most stores at this time are offering a Protection Plan for electronic items or battery operated items. In our store we offer 1 year replacement warranty this is for consumers good especially when you buy expensive items. If you don't want replacement cause you are not satisfied in the item, the company send through mail a check on your money plus tax. Isn't it a great deal? Another wise consumers moved is to sign up for a store coupons and manufacturers coupon, diapers and formula is important and babies need this all the time and having coupons for discount is a big savings. So plan and spend wisely, be a wise consumer.

Weeds Weeds Weeds

Weeds are growing everywhere at this time of year. Our front and back yard were not concrete only rocks around but even though still weeds grows. We already whack them and spray weed killer last couple of weeks ago and now new weeds are growing. Yup! this time of year, spring and fall season weeds are growing not on summer cause they can't survive the heat and not on winter cause it's cold. Usually what we do is to spray weed killer on it cause they won't come back for a long time but for a tip don't buy those cheap weed killer cause we try it already and weeds just look droopy and won't die and back to life for few days. Try those expensive one cause your money is worth'ed for a long time.

Love Thy Neighbor

Sometimes our neighbor is driving us crazy, not only us some people felt the same too. He has alot of cats and they make our front and back yard as their litter box. People in our neighborhood were complaining because of this cause their everywhere. Sometimes this are the reason that our renter will moved because their our next door neighbor and cats are everywhere in our yard. Wish we have dogs to chase them but we can't have one at this time cause nobody will watch them in case we're going for a vacation or go travel. We just glad one time when our past renter and our present renter has a dog it helps alot to chase those cats around the yard. Animal control were already here and checking him but he said it's not his cats he's just feeding them. He's probably a cat lover or has a big heart for a cat cause he lived all by himself and there is nothing wrong with it. Well, one two or three is fine more than three is alot and more than ten is too much.

Stay focus

Gosh! Sad to say that i am rushing to be more confident to drive just to get my driver's license cause my learners permit is expiring. Yeah, I know, i am one of those people who will get prepared on the last minute of time. I am not really in a hurry that is why, I am very content having a chauffeur at this time. I never heard any complain from my chauffeur yet even though he's driving for free hehehe. Well, my husband is very good though, he drops me wherever i want when i want to go somewhere and he dropped and picked me at work which i am very much content about it. But plans change cause where gonna be moving pretty soon once our house will put into market and what if it will sell fast? and it's nice to be prepared early hehehe. Now probably is my chance to get a license cause the place where i get my license is just few blocks away and i don't wanna deal to some other states cause probably their rule is different. I am just gonna focus and concentrate and alot of practice... Well, i'm the driver if i'm off at work so i just hope i pass.

15 years had passed

It's Good Friday and at the same time it's the 15th years death anniversary of my father. It's been 15 years had passed and until now i still miss my father... To look back the saddest experience of my life, way back in my high school days. We are still young when our father left us... I was in my 3rd year in high school, my younger brother is 2nd year while our oldest is 4th year. Our youngest is 5 years old and our father is the only provider of the family. It's so tough and rough life, the 1st couple of years is so hard but we have to learn how to leave and move on. I am so proud of my mother in spite of all the things happened we all finished in high school even though it's so hard cause we are all in private school as what our father liked. After i graduated high school i started to work, from that experience i gain confidence, courage and determination cause there's no one to defend on but myself. I remembered my father said to me that he will sent me to school on whatever course i want as long as i like it. He is the best father to me even for the short period of time. I'm sure he is still proud of me even though i didn't finish collage but i still grow as a better person and now i have a family of my own and i thank my parents for guiding me the right way...

Holy Week

A Holy Week is a time to commemorate the death and sufferings of Christ on the cross. It's a time of repentance and reflections of our sins. Do penance, fasting and abstinence. It starts on Palm Sunday and ends on the day before Easter.
Philippines is one of the largest Catholic believer country, some part of our country were people do sacrifice and penance by whipping themselves and some people crucify themselves on the cross on Good Friday. Do fasting and abstinence from the beginning of the Lenten season. On Good Friday Families were pray together, gather together like Christmas time. It's every solemn time of the year, so quiet... even in Cebu it's one of the biggest city in the Philippines and i've been there alot of times during Holy Week and every Good Friday most of the business companys, stores were closed and only few cars on the street we even ended up sometimes walking going to a place where we pray and do station of the cross but it's part of sacrifice not even enough compare to the sufferings of Christ just to saves us from our sins. But it's relieving... say a prayer, reflect for our sins and do penance is relieving and lighten our spirit.

Summer is in the air

Are you ready for the summer? hmmp! not me! I am not ready for 100 plus degrees summer in Arizona but i can't stop it so i better get over it. duh! You can feel that it's almost here cause it's 80 plus degrees and it's warm under the sun it's seems that we gonna pass spring again... as usual. In winter time you forgot how it feels in summer cause it's nice and cold and you'll love Arizona and a lot of people loved Arizona in winter but when summer's come gosh it's very opposite. Gosh!! i really really have to get over it, alot of my workmates were born and raised in here and they were excited for the summer. It's not that really terrible in here i probably just exaggerating it... Arizona has alot to offer aside from nice winter and hot summer it's a nice place to leave and it's a low cost of living. Check us out in here you might like it alot of retired people are living here in Arizona.

Significant other

Have you read the book entitle "for woman only" by Shaunti Feldhahn? It's for woman only, what you need to know the inner lives of a man. It is an interesting book, my mother inlaw gave it to me when they came down and visit us. I just started reading it and i already learned alot, in the book they conduct a survey on what's going on on man's inner life. It's so interesting book, we knew that male and female are alot different, most women are emotional and uses their heart most of the time and men were strong they have alot of strenght than a woman but in mental capacity i could say it's equal. Now a days men and women have an equal rights, it used to be men were leaders, the workers, the providers but in our modern time now women are given equality as a men. But in inner lives, men are always a men alot different than a women and sometimes misunderstood. It says that " men would rather feel alone and unloved than inadequate and disrespected", based on their survey on the book 74% of men chooses to be alone and unloved and 26% chooses to be inadequate and disrespected. Treat them as a man even if there is equality now a days, don't level them as a woman they were still the head of the family even if you are more educated than he is or you earn more than he is, he is still the head of the family and way way higher than a woman. If everybody is gonna be like this i bet everybody gonna have a happy family and less separation and divorce gonna happen. Just a thought... well, i'll let you know on what else i'm going learn from this book.

Adjustment Period

I have more time at work now, sometimes when i get home i'm tired, exhausted or alot of stress. I'm still on my adjustment period cause things are so different on my single days and now that i have family. Before, i don't mind spending alot of time at work cause when i got home i just eat and sleep. But now, i need to spend some of my time with my family and i don't really like a mess and disorganize so i still have to do my duty as a mother and as a woman in the house. I'm so proud of my husband he is doing his best too he is so helpful to me but i know that you know that things are alot different when the husband took charge of the house and the baby. I can see it clearly but sometimes i just don't mind it when i am so tired, i just wanna relax and be with my family.

Cup of Coffee - Very nice story

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic,glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite -telling them to help themselves to the coffee. When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: Ifyou noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups... And then you began eyeing each other's cups. Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change, the quality of life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us. God brews the coffee, not the cups. The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest toGod.

Turns 2

Originally uploaded by may2smiles
Gosh! How fast time goes by... My daughter turns 2 yesterday, I remember 2 years ago when i undergo an induce labor... I don't have enough fluid to protect the umbilical cord from being compressed accidentally by the baby and probably could cause more problems if i wait 37weeks. Well, she's only 33 weeks and it's only 4 weeks early. She came out healthy, born on March 3,2006 at 9:53 am, She weight 5.7 and 17inches lenght. I remember that i can't sleep at that night even though it's not painful anymore cause they numb half of my body, probably cause of excitement (i'm sure it is) and can't wait to see her. Can't describe the happiness of being a mother and even now i am so proud of my baby. She is my life and my everything... She is so funny, goofy and sweet little angel.

Time Change

Next week i'm gonna start working early, i am not sure if i am excited about it and it's probably too tiring after work. I change my availability from 5-10 to 1-10 for a few reasons, 20hrs a week earning is not enough for me and of course my daughter anymore, i guess i started to be highly maintenance for myself hehehe. I am also hoping that i can save some at this time. I guess i just need a little adjustment and i'll be back on track again.

You know what CZARRMAE stands for? CZ comes from my name Cordellia Zamayla "a" is "and" and RR is from my husband name Rick Rasmussen, MAE is from our daughter RICHELLE. Cool huh?? 3 in 1 or that's going to be our brand name like if ever we're going to open a business hehehe. Do you know where we get our daughter's name? Well our daughter's name is Richelle Czarrina Mae and Richelle came from my husband's name Richard and Czarrina is from both me and my husband's name and the Mae is donated from my husband's mom. Before, when we are still planning to have a baby we already prepared a name of either a girl or a boy, if it's a girl we're going to call her Czarrina and that is our daughter's name and if it's a boy we're going to name him Czarr. Well, we don't have a boy yet but if God grant us to have another baby and if it's a boy we're going to name him Czarr Richard.
