Damn it! [Excuse my words, is just for impact]

I woke up early today even if I am was supposed to be working. Yes, I am officially unemployed so there is no need for me to be up and about. hehehe But still, no matter how I wanted to stay longer in bed, I couldn't. I didn't feel good for some reason. Damn alarm clock! Why didn't I turn you off? My Bad!
Well, it's not actually unusual for me to feel this way nowadays, so there is nothing to panic about. At my age, sleeping and/or getting a sleep is a huge problem now. I have a hard time getting a good sleep and when I did get to sleep, I would have to get up in the middle of the night to take a trip to the bathroom. Damn bladder! Why don't you leave me alone? LOL.
Now, "hot flashes" are on the attack. Oh yeah, I think I am almost there. My foot is already on the threshold. Again, nothing to be concerned about. Time will never stand still no matter how I wish. Yes, baby I am about to reach a milestone. Damn fountain of youth! Where art thou? LMAO

My Running BFF

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am happy to run outdoors now because I save a lot on my gym membership fee. [wink*] I like running on “real road” than on “moving belt” which twisted my knee and gave me an injury [thanks a lot for my ignorance]. And more importantly, I just love the feel of the cool breeze on my cheeks and the warmth of the sun on my skin. It does feel like “not winter” anymore. Yey.  Well, I have been waiting all winter to get the chance to run outdoors but I didn’t realize that this spring will have a great impact on my allergy. But then, my allergy didn’t stop me from running outdoors. I now run with my new BFF – Wal-Fex Allergy for Indoors and Outdoors Allergies which is one of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products that I discovered which is very effective to me. It is not only effective but friendly too. Yes, it’s friendly to my pocketbook, that is.
This product gives me quick r…

An Allergy-Free Day

For some reason, I am now allergic to almost everything. Could it be even possible at all?
I have lived a life free from allergies even when I was still in the Philippines. Smog, smoke, dust, pollen and air pollution never bother me. They never give me sniffles, headache and stuffy nose.
When I came here in Maine, I may be bothered by the extreme weather but still that doesn't give me reason to take any anti-histamine.
Well, I would have a little stuffy nose every now and then, especially early in the morning but that is because of sinusitis but that's all about it. I don't even have to take anything for it to go away because I think it goes away with the ticking of the clock.
Now, I need to take non-drowsy anti-histamine to survive the day without headache and watery eyes. I love the outdoors especially now that I am into running. I just hope that I will be able to run everyday without worrying about the pollen.

The Challenge of Motherhood

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CryoCell International for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Motherhood - that is something I believe will not happen to me anymore.  I learned to accept the fact that there are certain things that other women who either love or hate doing will not be my things. Things like preparing food for school lunches, going to soccer/football/basketball/hockey/and what-have-you-games, attending PTA meetings in school, hosting sleep-overs and most importantly… driving a mini-van - will only be a dream. LOL
Motherhood – is a very important stage in a woman’s life but not all are given the chance to experience it. But I have no regrets. I am just happy for those who are pregnant like three of my friends. Although I know how hard it is to carry a life inside, it is worth every pain when the baby is born. And I know that I will not be able to experience that too. And with the recent advancement in medical research, I will not be able to partic…
