I really hate rush shopping

The two nephews are asleep.  It is time for me to take my afternoon nap because I am so tired of sending off and fetching the kids from school.  Well, this is one of my daily routine.  I get used to this because I have been doing this for three years I think but lately I get easily tired.  Maybe because I am not getting any younger. *whew*  Anyways, I am on my way to dream land when my phone rang.  Arghs!  It was my sister calling me and said that we will go to the mall to buy nephew’s white rubber shoes for their field demonstration.  And I have to bring the kids because no one will look after them.

Because the nephews (sister’s sons) are still sleeping I have to wait till they wake up.  I can sense a rush shopping hour and I hate it.  I have no choice because the nephew will be using the shoes in two days.  It it the perfect time for my sister to buy rubber shows for her son.  The sister is seven month on the way and she gets tired easily.  That day she is less tired so she grabbed the chance.  We have two hours to look for rubber shoes and having dinner at the mall.  While she is waiting for our order, I brought the nephew to the shoes section to pick for a rubber shoes.  After picking the rubber shoes, we have our dinner and be back to pay the shoes.  It was a quick, rush shopping and tiring.  We got home at exactly 9:30 in the evening.  How is that?  Really tiring for me.  Next time no more rush shopping hour, okay sister?

My Christmas List

As we all know Christmas is fast approaching.  It is time for us to do our Christmas list.  I have been doing this for the past three years and it is fun.  I find it funny and exciting doing Christmas list even if I am not sure if I am going to do it or buy it.  We do have lots of things that we want to buy and give during holidays but it all depends on our resources.  But even if resources are limited still we make a list just to give us an idea what is really important and our priorities.  That makes the listing fun and exciting especially after I saw how long is my list.haha!

Speaking of Christmas list, I am starting to do my list.  I have lots in my mind as usual just like last year.  I took my old list and check of the item/s there that I was not able to do and include it to my new list.  I have few that I did not able to make it happen and hopefully to do it this year.   First thing first so I won’t be confused of which I am going to do first.  It would be very difficult especially that money is very tight.  It is not good to spend more.  My list is not final yet, I am going to sort out things.  I am crossing my fingers.

Surrendering the credit card

My sister does have three (3) credit cards.  How did it happen?? She does not know.  It was just delivered on here doorstep. Well, she applied two credits cards and it’s approved.  The third card just arrived.  She went to the bank and said it was a mistake.  Having three cards comes with big responsibilities that is why the sister surrendered the third cards since she did not applied for it.  But the agent told her to avail it for it has no annual free because first year is for free.  If she likes it after a year of using it, then that’s the time to pay for the annual fee.

The sister grabbed the one year free of charge.  After a year of using it, he decided to surrender the credit card even though she likes it because three credits cards will tempt her to shop more and might end up in huge debt.  She doesn’t want to be like others who are in huge debt because of credit card.  The sister did the right thing.  She thinks of what would happen if she has three credit cards.  Having multiple credits cards is not bad at all as long as you know your limitations, responsibilities and aware of the disadvantages.  Credit card can save you if you have an emergency and you do not have money, but do not spend beyond your means.  Do not use it if it is not necessary.  Saving it for the rainy days.

Picking dress for my sister-in-law

Last Sunday I am visiting my older bother in the city where he works and stay.  It was an hour and half travel from the city where I live.  The visit was not plan because I am afraid to travel for now because of the bomb threat but I have to go because I have something to give to him.  Also, have to get the corn grains that my father is asking.  I traveled with my two nieces because I do not want to travel alone.  It was 4 0’clock in the afternoon when we arrived.  My brother did not expecting us.  Since we arrived very late, I told the brother that we will stay and will have dinner at their house.

My sister-in-law brought us at the mall because she is planing to buy dress for she will be attending a baptismal.  She asked my help to pick a dress for her.  I smiled because I like that she asked me to pick a dress for her.  I am not worried because I used to pick dress for my older sister and nieces.  It was not a hard time for me because the SIL is not so picky not like my older sister. LOL  In less than 30 minutes buying dress for her s done.  No sweat I must say.  I like that she likes the dress that we picked for her.  She is now ready for the baptismal event.  Also, she bought dress for the nieces.  Thanks for the treat and the dinner.
