  53. I’d like to shift to a plant-based diet sometime in the future.

  55. I want to one day put up day care centers per barangay that are well-maintained. The aim of these day care centers are to educate the children from a few months old to around 5 years. Better that they’re in the center rather than watching stupid noontime shows.
  56. I do email at really wee hours in the morning, when I can have the computer all to myself uninterrupted…or, at the office, which, essentially, is alone time.

  61. When I go to the grocery, I just get what’s on my list. (Well, unless I pass through a lane and I see something the boys like…)
  62. I believe that television is a waste of time. (But I still “waste” my time sometimes…)

  65. I like reading the society pages…this is the first thing I read!
  66. I love it when it rains and I’m under the blankets and the aircon is cold.
  67. I have never played in the rain. One day, I will, with my kids!
  68. I really can’t stand Barney.
  69. I like Dr Seuss books except Cat in a Hat.
  70. I actually like writing (which is why I blog). I used to keep diaries (kaya pala my mom knew all my secrets!) and my BFF who’s in Canada now used to write long letters to each other!
  71. I actually like makeup! More like mineral makeup. And the reason my makeup kit is bursting at the seams is because I’m making up for lost time.
  72. I prefer shopping on the internet and the things I’ve bought online are makeup and makeup brushes, bags, books.
  73. I palpitate when I get a haircut by someone I don’t know, even if I’m paying big time. Which is why, if I can afford big time, I’d rather go to someone reliable—Louis Kee of Razzle Dazzle Salon.
  74. I use homeopathic remedies on myself and my children (and S, if he’s willing).
  75. I love love love spicy food.
  76. My preferred drink is cold water. =)
  77. I have only recently learned to like SML. Gotta be really cooooold!

  85. I don’t like creepy crawlies.
  86. I’m addicted to Facebook.
  87. I could finish a can of Spam in a sitting when I was around ten!
  88. Spending philosophy—if I can’t sleep for more than a week thinking about something, it means I have to buy it.
  89. I think about having other children—only for selfish reasons.
  90. I think my kids are the cutest things! (After my husband, of course)
  91. I absolutely adore my husband. He’s one of the most objective persons I know. (Which is why he can’t run for public office—we’ll never be able to make ends meet!)
  92. I love books—if only I could have a library at home. My shelf is bursting at the seams!
  93. I change my theme so often because I can’t find one that I truly truly like!

    Hi Mrs. Jen’

    I’m Jeff Dacumos, glad to came across in your site.
    I’ve been searching through the net about homeschooling program and I would like to ask if you know any which is for free?

    I have a 9 yr.old son, and still looking for a homeschooling program, My wife and I are quite in a rush now coz’ the start of the class is near.

    Just to give you idea, my son didn’t really excel on his 3rd grade, thats why we came up with a decision to homeschool him. He likes to play more when he is around with his classmates, the reason he can’t focus in his studies. My wife Reya and I doesn’t really tried homeschooling before, that’s why we dont have idea about it.

    We inquired at Westfield International Schools here in Angeles City, Pampanga which they also offer homeschooling, their fee for it is around 15k. We really want to, but we don’t have that much budget, considering we also have two girls studying, Grade 6 and 2. That’s why i’m really looking for a free homeschooling (if theres any, and i hope so). I’m really hoping you could help us.

    By the way, Just for you to know me better, I’m a Pastor/ Campus missionary from Victory Christian Fellowship- Angeles.
    Hope you could help us.

    Thank you so much.

    God bless you.
