Dora and Spongebob... save my day!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.


As you may already know, I am a stepmom to a special child with special needs. My stepson is an 8-year old boy who has asperger syndrome. And with his kind of temper… I have am so glad that I have a support system – Dora and Spongebob. LOL

Well, being a special kid he doesn’t have the patience for TV schedules. When he wants them on TV… he wants them right away. Okay, let me tell you a secret. You may not know it, but if you have Charter digital, you have “On Demand”. And it’s free to access. With On Demand - there are over 6,000 movies and shows to watch anytime you want. No waiting, no schedules. You won’t miss one of your favorite shows like Heroes, 30 Rock, The Office. There are many of your favorites the day after they air on TV. And yes, they are - Free!

If you're a busy mom like me, and it’s hard to get in the car and get a movie, you don’t have the time to wait for the DVD in the mail. Having this service at my fingertips is such a breeze. Having this On Demand helps me fight less and reason out with my stepson. And now that HD is the thing, I’m finding that we do the HD shows more often. There are hundreds of them.

So if I were you, learn more at and get updates and fun extras on Charter’s Facebook page so you will get updated and won’t be left behind.

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 …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
