Snot Giving

I am a tolerant person; however, I draw a line when a cashier starts blowing her nasty snot just before touching my groceries. I kept sending her telepathic messages to freaking please squirt some hand sanitizer on her hands, but I guess her mind was too occupied on how much she really like to wipe her snot with her folded kleenex--which I have no idea how long she has been reusing that darn thing. As soon as she placed her folded dirty kleenex back to her pocket, she politely asked me,"did you get everything that you needed today?" and I politely responded with, "not really." She then sweetly offered,"well, can I get you anything else today?" and I said, "how about a little squirt of hand sanitizer?" Her face crumpled, probably analyzing what I just said to her. I offered to clear things up and I politely reminded her that she just blew her nose; quite frankly, I don't want to bring that at home with me. To be honest, we were both placed in an awkward circumstance, but her actions led me to my actions.To her credit, she complied but I didn't think she was too keen about me being sanitary around my groceries. Was I rude? I didn't mean to be rude, but I have a family at home and lots of co-worker at work. Can I really afford to be consciously spreading virus to everybody I know just to be polite? So, no! I am not going to be a channel of her nastiness. Her actions should not define me. I spoke up because I have to. I was in a situation where I have to either be accepting or declining--and I chose the latter. I am all for free shit, but getting a snot for free is not one of the free shit I would like to take consciously.

On another note, my daughter sold her old trumpet and violin to get her a cute ukulele. She decided to switch from piano to ukulele and voice lessons. I just let her decide what she wants to do because forcing her will not do any good at all. I was a little sad when we sold the trumpet because it was her big brother's old trumpet. He played it from grade school to high school. I guess if one of my children decides to play it again, I can always search for cool wwbw trumpets online. I mean there are plenty to choose from and it is always available online, so that can wait. I just let them decide and let go of telling them which, when, and what instruments they can play. I will be supported for as long as it makes them happy--but of course, as long as if it is good for them as well. What can I say? I am a mother :D

2019

Hello world! Today is the first day of a new year and I feel great! Sure, I am only at home being cozy and avoiding the frigid temperature outside but I am in the moment of planning what this new year will bring into my life. Scratch that! What great improvements I can deliver into this new year! I don’t want to make an outrageous list that is impossible to commit into so I will only make a promise to do better this year. I will try not to submit myself into a stressful situation. As I think about my biggest problem in 2018 it was by acting without thinking which only elevated my stress level. This year, I have to consider that I cannot help what situations that will come into my life, all I can do is to wait and analyze before reacting to the situation. So this is my only promise to myself and I will try my hardest to commit to this promise because after all, it will benefit my health and sanity! Cheers to a brand new year

Of Bread & Blanket

Oh looky, September is here already and I have accomplished two things on the first day! I baked a chocolate chip banana bread and I finished crocheting Katie’s baby blanket! I have been working on the baby blanket on and off for about two weeks now. I had to bring it to work and fiddled with it during breaktime to make sure that it will be done before her baby shower this Friday—which I cannot attend due to poor time-management by whoever organized it. Besides me, the only other person who is close with Katie in the entire workplace is Irina, and we both get out at 2 p.m. (the party is at 3!). So, the only two people she wants to attend on that shower will not be there! Like I said, poor time-management by whoever organized it. We will both try to make it but I don’t think it will happen since we both have to pick up our kids from school. Nevertheless, we already have gifts for her baby. It just sucks we can’t be there.

So anyway, moving on to a more positive note, my chocolate chip…

Hair Do

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post from Divatress but all opinions are mine.

Have you ever looked at somebody else's hair and wished that you could have the same? I have! I always have long, fine, straight hair and yes, not to brag but a lot of people like my hair but to be honest, it needs more volume and more body.

I have always been jealous of my cousin's hair. She always have that full hair with the right amount of volume and wave and I thought it was always the hair I really wanted. I have tried going to the hair salon and had my hair curled  but I didn't know how to take care of it so it didn't come out great, so I accepted my fate--I will have this plain straight hair with not enough volume and body.

Fortunately there are beautiful half wigs that I can rock on during special occasions. They have tons of wigs to choose from short, straight, curly, or those amazing weaves. You can choose from real human hair, synthetic, or human hair blend. You can create your o…
