thinking of a new career

I always love fashion. Who doesn’t? Almost all women [and some men] I know are into fashion. And I am a woman… to the max… I really love fashion. And to prove it, I designed some of the clothes I wear. I don’t only mix and match but I recycle old clothes to make new ones. That is why I enjoy watching Runway Project. I love how those fashion designers come up with unique fashion style and ideas.

A career in fashion design was what I always wanted to take had I not been a bit confused in the past. When I took up college fashion designing was not popular and not considered as a career. But now, Fashion Designing is one of the most popular and significant career for people who wanted to express their creative talent. And good thing there are lots Fashion Schools that can cater to that important career decision.

At Fashion-Schools.org your dream of becoming a fashion designer is just a click away. The website has lots of important topic like fashion schools – where you can find all the list of fashion schools… fashion degrees – that can provide you viable information on the specific degree in fashion that you are interested in… fashion career – that will help you take the right career path… and fashion articles – where you can read all about the latest in fashion design and designers and tips on pursuing a career in fashion. So if you are thinking of taking a new career… try Fashion-Schools.org and let them guide you with your career decision.

A wife’s present disposition

I’m still not done with my lay-outing/designing/customizing/re-installing/and-what-not mood. If you have noticed, that is if you are one of my frequent visitors [I know I have many… hahahaha… because my PR increased again, yehey, thanks my friends] I have a new page outlook again… and this is the Nth time I changed it. I almost lost the content of this page a few days back and I freaked out like hell. I also lost my PR2 when I bought this blog its own domain and that caused some problem with my Advertisers. And to top it all the other blogs I made for my brother suffered the same fate. So I went crazy googling for solutions here and there. And the result is – 8 new templates for 8 blogs that I am currently managing (and 5 more to come). Thanks a bunch ourBLOGGERTemplates.com for the FREE Blogger Templates. They’re awesome… easy to install… and user-friendly.

Anyways, after I posted my latest rant about my faulty “operating system Husband 1.0” a week back, the “system” needs some scanning again to function flawlessly to my command. It did help a bit for a couple of days but for some reason… since Football Season started and The Patriots are having a hard time in the field because Tom Brady needed a major knee operation… Hubby is grumpy. So I am in a dilemma between grumpy Hubby and my blogging because I haven’t taken any monetizing opportunities for a week, I have tons of blog backlogs and my PayPal account has not gained any income lately. And the result is – more whining and ranting geared towards Hubby. Good thing we tend to schedule our ranting disposition lately… meaning when he is not in a good mood… I give way and vice versa. It works for us… sometimes.

I’m still not done with my chores too and that one is a major disaster. I am not in any mood to do anything at all but blogging. But who cares? Any wife deserves to be a slob once in awhile. Any wife has the right to be lazy and do nothing at all. And any wife can indulge and eat anything to her heart’s desire without guilt. And that… is my present disposition.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his back because I think it’s not right anymore at this time. He complains about his back when he is working… but when he walks 5 to 10 miles or climb trees when deer hunting and coming home late, he never complains about his back. His back never hurts when he is out hunting. His back only hurts when he is working. And his back only hurts when he is at home doing errand like taking out the trash. So, I boycott the back-rubbing altogether last night and brought my protest out of our bedroom. But then, of course on the 4th time he asked me to move back to our bedroom I raised the white flag.

This morning, when I checked my inbox my friend "Red" sent me an e-mail about husband. And I thought of sharing it here with you housewives out there who are in the same predicament as I am in. This is to let you know what kind of situation we are in and how to handle it.


Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower 3.5 and jewelry 2.0 applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
Romance 9.5 and
Personal Attention 6.5,
and then installed undesirable programs such as
NBA 5.0,
NFL 3.0 and
Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?




First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0-program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend
Cooking 3.0 and
Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck Babe!

There you go my friends. Maybe we really need to upgrade our system and have a special driver scanner to detect which program software we need to use when needs arise. But then, our husbands are not computer [I wish they were because it will be easier to sign off or log off when they hanged or malfunctioned] and so are we.

my driving skill sucks

I am still not feeling well. After my major disaster at DMV, I am taking things easy for now. I am still not happy about the whole road test thingy. After all the pressure I put up with my driving practice, I still flunked my first road test. And I definitely am not taking everything with a shrug. After all I do need my driver’s license. So, I’m back to my driving practice in our drive way.

Contrary to what people say… parallel parking is not the worse test I have to deal with. I passed that test with flying colors. The drill sergeant [a.k.a DMV driving instructor/officer] was impressed with my parallel parking. I did a great job with that. But apparently, that is not all there is to driving. I need my backing ability… my speed control… my over-the-shoulder rear view… and what not.

I am totally pissed… at me, that is. How could I have been too confident? How could I have been too complacent? How could I have been so stupid! Oh well, those scrappy thingy in life is inevitable so I got to deal with it. And though I consider that failing in that road test as not my mainly good season so far I still believe that there is hope. Ain't that the spirit or not?
I already mailed my request for a new re-exam schedule so I have enough time for my driving practice.

I just hope I get it this time. And I hope I will not have the same drill sergeant to give me the road test. She scares me so.

Hubby's Baby is back!

After 6 months of painful separation and cruel longing, Hubby’s baby is back. I saw in his eyes how happy he is once again. I saw in his eyes the same glow that used to be there. I saw in his eyes the same old affection that he used to have for his baby.

For 6 long months I know how much he missed his baby. I know how much he missed washing her body. I know how much he missed filling her up. I know how much she drives him crazy. And even if he found a new baby to replace her... he was still thinking about her.

Now they are back in each other’s arms. They are back to where they both belong – to each other. They are a handsome couple again. Soon they will be travelling together again... hunting together again… creating special memories together again… while I take the back seat.

I cannot be jealous. They have been together before me. Their relationship has passed the test of time. They have gone through a lot of good and bad times. I cannot be jealous of Sierra because as a wife… I have to understand.

Hubby’s baby is back. His GMC Sierra truck is back. As I said before… old trucks don’t die… they just get hauled away. Now, she is back. With a new motor… she is ready to drive him crazy once more.

What a (s)CRAP!

Excuse me for saying this but… I am thinking of taking my scrapbooking to the next level. Or maybe, make a career out of it. Oh, that’s a crap. Of course, I was only joking. But that could be a possibility, right? Why not, I know a lot of people doing it and making it big? But I don’t think I am one of them. I am a “strike-while-the-iron-is-hot” kinda person. And whilst my scrapping disposition is still very much sizzling I might as well strike back and hard.

Here is the thing… I cannot use this blog to share my work here because this is not a scrapbooking blog. So I came up with a scrappy thingy blog where I could post them which happens to be at my friend Vienna's Blogxi. I may not be that good but I am really proud of my new found hobby. And those are reminders that somehow I made myself productive despite of being a stay-at-home wife. Or probably, if I will finally get employed again [hopefully soon], they will remind me that there is one thing I could always do again to divert myself from the routine of work. And that’s not a crap.

Dieting… the next level

It’s really frustrating. I have been running-jogging-walking for over 4 months now and my weight is still the same. Well, I did lose 15 pounds during the first month but I gained them back after our grand vacation in Canada. And even if I went back running-jogging-walking again my weight is still the same. Maybe I really need to make a drastic decision now. I was thinking of taking my dieting to the next level.

Yes, I am thinking what you are thinking. I am thinking of taking the pill. But what pill? With so many diet pills in the market to choose from, it’s equally frustrating to decide which one to take, which one is effective or which one has no side effects. But the good news is that, ConsumerPriceWatch.net has the answers to all those nagging thoughts that we dieters have.

scrapbooking newbie

Just like some of the stay-at-home wives/moms and bloggers that I know, I also dipped my hands into digital scrapbooking just recently. Yep, that is now the trend I guess because almost all my friends here in the blogosphere have tried scrapbooking and some of them are really into it that they are making big bucks out of designing headers and logos using digital scrapbooking techniques.

Having visited lots of scrapbooking websites and blog sites I have realized… why not? Why should I not try it myself too? So, here are few of my first creations using Scrapbook Fair.

Hubby and Brandon with the 250 lbs. 14-pointer buck last hunting season.

My two beautiful nieces, Jade and Lara.

My Nephew... Toby, the Pogi

Well, I cannot promise that I will have a Scrapbooking Saturday because that will really require more of my precious time. I just want to do this on my free time [as if I really have one] or during those times that I need to divert from blogging because if I will not do that, I will get drained. I just want to do this to keep my creative side active as well. Happy scrapbooking to all my scrapbooking friends out there.
