Oh boy, I really had a hard time waking up early this morning. I been waking up too late since I took my 5 days off. I was back at work today and I need to woke up early to prepare. I set my alarm clock at 7:00 in the morning but I didn't get up at 7:00 hehehe . I extended to 7:30 and then took a quick shower. My time was so tight but good thing I arrived at work on time:-)
I will start again soon tomorrow but for sure I will get up as soon as my alarm clock will ring. I have to...I need to. Next week will back to my normal working hours, long day at work until we can find another full time worker that I can share my hours.

My 5 days off is over. I will go back to work tomorrow until friday and then next week will be back to my normal working hours. It feels so great having 5 days rest. I didn't do much on that long period of time. I just stayed home most of the time, watching movies and working in my computer. I been out with friends two days in a row. I did enjoy that two days spending with my friends but I enjoyed most spending time alone in the house.
I tried to clean up my 22, 838 thousand photos in my laptop but I end up doing nothing. I don't know what to do and where to start. It's very discouraging. I was browsing in the net on how to file photos, I found some but I still have to study it. I took out all my picture from my computer and I transferred them to my portable hard drive. In that way, it gives lots of space in my computer.
While browsing in the net, I found an interesting site about Facebook timeline cover. It's very cool. I know that 90% of the people around the universe have facebook account. You can click their website if you want to change your timeline cover. I'm sure you will love it.

I was watching "WISH KO LANG" a reality show of GMA 7 in Philippines this morning. I'm not a regular viewer of the show but sometimes I watch it if I remember. I wanted to watch movie but with no reason, I open my computer and watch the show.
The first episode was about the teacher to celebrate the teacher's day. I was touched on how she helps the kids despite of her health condition. But what made me cry was the second episode. It was about a 16 years old boy whose father left him when he was still very young. Inspite of what his father done not only to him and to his mother but to his grandfather too, he didn't feel bad to about him. He's still hoping that one day, they will meet and experience to have a father.
Before his grandfather died, he wished to see his son (the father of the boy) for the last time. The boy emailed the said show hoping to grant his grandfather's wish. The grandfather died without seeing or even talking to his son in the phone. The crew of the show were looking for the father of the boy and luckily, they found him before the burial of the grandfather. The most touching scene was when he arrived at the wake of the father. It's normal that he cried with all the regrets for not seeing his father but what really make me cry is when I saw the boy crying when he saw his father. I can imagine my nephew. He didn't see his father since birth. We don't want to talk about his father but he knows the story about his him. He already ask us once when he was still 9 years old. He's now 18 years old and I wonder if he ask his mother about his father. He don't have his biological father but he has lots of father in our family. We all treat him as our little brother.

I really miss my hubby when i woke up this morning. Every Sunday, we woke up late depending on what time we go for the mass. Then we always had our breakfast in the restaurant. This morning, I woke up too late at around 11:00 I felt so lazy and wanted to just stay in the bed. I could do that but the sun is tempting me to go outside and enjoy his presence. I drove just around and try to take pictures of the trees that already change color but there's not much to take...I guess the colors are not nice this year because there's not enough water. It's so dry and the leaves didn't stay longer. They fall right away as soon as the color change. So I end up having my all time fave "Macchicato au Caramel" here at Starbucks.
Tomorrow will be a long day for me at work so I will just enjoy my day today, alone and just blogging, having coffe and movie marathon when I will arrive home after here.
HAVE A BLESSED SUNNY SUNDAY TO ALL!

I been sneezing since yesterday. I'm so afraid that I will have colds or flu in the next few days. I guess my immune system is so week since I didn't have enough sleep for almost a week now. Since the very first day that hubby told me that he's leaving for work outside the province, I was not able to sleep in the night and wake up so early in the morning since I have to work the whole day. The worst is, I always forgot to take the multivitamins every morning which didnt help in my health :-)
I just hope that I will be okay before hubby will leave. I don't want to be sick if I'm alone in the house. I will do best to take care of myself

As I mention in my previous entry, hubby will be leaving to Alberta next week. Because he will be away for few weeks, maybe months, he started to take all the summer stuff to the shed. He don't want that I will stuck with it. He already washed the garage when I arrived from work this afternoon. Patio table set were already in the shed and tomorrow we will take out the tarpaulin roof and put it in its place. I know it's still too soon since the weather is still warm and nice but we're afraid that he will stay longer in Alberta. I can't do all this thing alone. Cutting the grass and preparing the flowers for winter,that I can do it alone.
So this is it. I'm ready for winter and so excited to it but sad that I will be alone in few weeks or months :-(

To see Canada was one of my greatest dream when I was little but I'm not dreaming it anymore because I live here now. Before I arrived here, hubby asked me what are my dreams and I told him that I wanted to see Disneyland and have a picture with all the my favorite cartoon character. We been to California after 3 months of staying here in Canada. We been to Disneyland and Sea World. It was my first grand vacation. Two years after, we been to San Francisco to visit my cousin and we took that opportunity to explore the other side of California and we been to Nevada as well.
There are still some places of California that I wanted to visit but it's not the priority for now. I want to explore some other state in US. One of them is New York. I been already to some cities in New York State that is close to Quebec but I never been to New York City. I wanted to visit this city and I already talked to my husband about it. He started looking for a cheap ticket and he found some affordable
new york tickets online. I'm so excited and looking forward to this trip. Another dream come true to me :-)
We started to makes some plan to Chicago and Nevada for our next trip. He already checked the
chicago tickets and las vegas tickets online. There's always big discount if you buy tickets ahead of time.

I will be working 6 days straight this week because one of my co-worker that use to do the opening every weekend will have her vacation. My boss wasn't able to find one to replace her but me. We have nothing to do this weekend so I took it and I will be off Sunday and Monday. I wanted to have more hours also to put in my time bank so that I can get more paid holidays this summer and hopefully visit my family in Philippines this coming January.
We are still Tuesday and I still have 4 more days to go...ouchh! Just thinking of it makes me feel so week. Too bad, I can't watch the Rodeo this Saturday. I love to watch it but as I said, I will be working. I didn't see the schedules of activity yet and I guess there's still another Rodeo in Sunday.
I hope the weather will be nice so that we can go there and see some of the activities.

Hubby decided to extend our lower patio. I like the idea because it gives us more space and nice place to put our BBQ grill and I can put working table and some chair...he started doing this morning alone. He's doing the frame and now we're here at the store to buy some more woods to finish the work. Hopefully, everything will be done by Monday ....I'm looking forward to see our new patio :-)

When hubby bought me this MacBook Pro, he also purchase a One to One and apple care at the same time. At first, I don't see any use of buying the one to one because I thought I'm good enough to learn the basic of the computer. But hubby bought it without even asking me if I want it. I been few times already in my one to one course and I learned a lot about some technics in operating this computer. Then I started to realize that it's worth to pay $100 for the one to one course unlimited visit for 1 year.
Then hubby bought another photo software called "APERTURE". There again, I don't see any use of this software because I was using ACDsee in my other laptop and I love it. I know everything in that software that I don't need to use my photoshop. But with the Mac, the ACDsee Pro that I'm using is not yet available in Mac. But the aperture is given and I didn't spend any cent of it so I use it to please hubby.
This morning, I had my first session in Aperture. Oh boy! There's lots of things in it that I don't have in my other software. It's friendly and I don't need to use my photoshop CS5 too in editing my pictures. My instructor is a big help also because he's a professional photographer. He gaves me a lot of tips in editing photos. I started to love aperture now:-)
I will have my second session this coming May 12 with him again. I'm so excited :-)

Yes, I'm already 8 years here in Canada. I left in my home in Philippines January 25, 2004 at 4:00 in the morning(Philippines Time) and I arrived in Vancouver International Airport January 25, 2004 in the afternoon (Vancouver Time). Hubby was there in Vancouver Airport just to pick me up. Then we flew after few hours going Quebec where we live :-) We arrived in Montreal January 26, 2004 (Quebec Time) that means, tomorrow will be my 8 years here in Quebec hihihi. I can't imagine that I'm already 8 years here. I thought that it was only yesterday.
I remember very well on the day I left my homeland. My dad and mom woke up so early and prepared some foods to eat and of course they also wanted to talk to me and be there when I will leave. My sister and my nephew was there too and my nephew was not happy seeing me leaving our house. I felt so pity to him and to my family. My heart broke seeing them when I left. I don't want to leave them but I have to. I need to stay with my husband, my family. Even though I have my own family here, they are still my family.
Well, I miss my family in Philippines so badly now. I was planning to visit them this summer but I've change my mind. I just bought a property in Philippines and I wanted to work hard for that project of mine. It's my own project, not a conjoint project. Hubby wanted to help me but I refused. I wanted to do this by myself. I will only ask help to my hubby if I really need. Just now that I'm still working and with more hours, I guess I can pay my project before 2 years :-)
So, I guess I have to go now..CHEERS TO ME :-)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I suppose to write an entry yesterday as a start of the year 2012 but too sad that I was not able. We celebrated New Year's Eve at my friend's place with all my Filipino friends. We wanted to stay there until 4:30 in the morning but we decided to leave 1:30 am because we had family supper the next day (Jan 1). I never prepared anything for the supper and still have to do some cleaning. I'm so thankful with my two friends who gave me a hand last night. Fortunately, the party was a success.
First time it happen here that we had karaoke with Hubby's family. It's been a while that I wanted to have it with them but I'm so afraid that they will not enjoy it. They really had fun with the karaoke last night. None of them sings good and that gives us so much fun and they really want to do it again :-) I really didn't expect that they will enjoy it. Good to know:-)
I hope you guys enjoy celebrating the New Year Day ..
