So Many Things to be Thankful for Today

First was the success of the program last night. I attended the thanksgiving program/party with just my normal attire meaning didn’t wear anything Retro of the 60’s. Wasn’t born that time yet. hahaha

Second, inspite the program finished at 10 pm I was already in bed to sleep at 11 — and dreading for the morning to come because I have to get up early.

Third, I got up at 5:45 very sleepy but I was able to drag myself to the bathroom to take a bath so that I can join the pahina.

Fourth, I was able to do 5 S in my office and was able to help at the faculty room, too. At lunch, I was on an errand to pic a refrigerator for the faculty room — and it was so hot, yet I made it with the big big umbrella.

Fifth, I feel so sleepy now and yet I am still a bit strong to finish the work of the day because it is Sabbath tomorrow.

Sixth but not the least >>> today is my love’s birthday. Have sent him a birthday email earlier although he has received the bday last week, yet. It’s his birthday today but I know he will call me for the greetings (as per agreed) hahaha! Would thank God too for letting him think of that idea. He is suppose to receive more care and love today but I think, I would have fair share of it, too.

Seventh , oppss am thankful too for making me able put up the two pages I thought of making here in this blog. See that? The disclosure one and the about me one.

So in a while, am off to home and then do some marketing for the week-end. Am suppose to pay my electric and phone bill today but all offices are on a holiday. Hmmm wish am on holiday, too.

I want to wish everyone to have a nice week-end!

Take care all and God bless.

Why Sunshine?
It is because I love the world “sunshine” to be my name or even a pet name. Many years back, someone dedicated the song “You Are My Sunshine” to me and I guess that is one of the reasons why I did love the name Sunshine. Sunshine to me means happiness, someone who always have a happy disposition. And I am trying to always be that one.

Why Sunshineforlife?
Well…happy days should not only be today but forever.

Thanksgiving Day!

November is a month of Thanksgiving – worldwide!

Today, I thank the Lord that it’s paying day. Got my statement earlier and hmmmm the amount is not so big – but that’s what it is. I just then wonder when would I receive a whole P5,000.00 as a bring home pay………….when? Will still that happen? 🙁 Anyways, I should not complain as am sure there are still those who are just receiving less than a hundred per day pay. Right?

Tonight, the school and the hospital will be be celebrating Thanksgiving day and it means we are going to have a thanksgiving program/party. The part of it that I like to see will be the mountain of gifts for the less fortunate. Each one of us (more or less 300 workers) shall carry a gift from the heart. A gift that will contain food, clothing, and toys and will be distributed to 3 areas around the city for Christmas. I think this is a nice program and it is timely for those who were really affected by the flood weeks back.

Talking about the program tonight – the attired would be one that reflects the fashion of the 60’s! I really don’t think so I can have one due to my extra large size. LOL! I think long time ago, tnere are no big people like me yet, so all clothese were for the slim and small sizes. 🙂

Yoohoooooo just another day to go and December comes in!

Thank God!

Curly Hair, Straight Hair…Whatever!

I always have a straight hair. When I was young, not a trace of natural curl can be seen but it is always that die-hard straight and my mom love to cut it in U-shape that I look like an Egyptian King of long ago. 🙂 But when I reached my 30’s my hair sort of showed signs of sligtly curled hair in the midst of the straight ones. I don’t it because it is either I want have perfectly straight or I wanna have that sexy long curled hair.

While I was in college, I wanted my hair curled (temporarily) but no one thinks I would look great in it. My brother gave me the worst description – If I had it curles i will look like a W__. so i gave up the thought of it.

When I was pregant with my first baby I was hoping that if it is a girl, it will be one that has curly hair and long curly lashes. But it did not turn out as expected. She was a girl with less hair head. But now she is having natural curls which i think is not from my genes byt from his Da.

Now that am 35, my hair has gone thin due to stress and maybe the water, too. The thinnin started 5 years ago and it has not yet stopped til today. It was not an ordinary hair falling, so am thinking of having it curles like the lions have.

When can I have it done? Well, that’s the question that the answer is unknown. hehehe

And by the way, I really dunno my bf would like it because all the bfs past they never like the thought of me with short hair or with long curly hair. I really dunno why.

Speak in English, Please

Our school officially implemented the “speak in english” anywhere in the campus. Every transaction with the studnets should be done in English. The rule received different kind of reaction including: Less noise in the classroom, less interaction with the teacher, and more sign languate done in service departments. LOL!

A student came to see me this morning and I smiled when he left because he was not able to speak. He opened his mouth but no words came out. I received the paper he was handing to me wordlessly and told him, “this will be filled up by the registerar’s office personnel.” He wanted to protest that I should do it or maybe the Dean, but again, no words came out of his mouth. So I just right away said, “Sa registrar na ihatag,” (give that to the Registrar’s Office), and right away, he responded in to me in the local dialect what he wanted to do – and after more explanation, he said this thanks.

I just wonder why it is hard to really speak in English in an Filipino school environment. Or maybe it’s just at my school?

My 50th Post? Not Yet :(

I was not able to update my page yesterday because I was literally down. I was already not feeling well when I went to work, but thinking of the things I need to do, I just went but really really I can’t concentrate with what I was doing. Body aches, stuffed nosed with those sticky yellow contents (yikes), watery eyes — ohhhhhhhhhhhh I just feel like laying down on my table to stretch my achy bones.

I went to see the doctor at 3 pm (i had the chance to do it because of an errand done at the HR office) so I just thought it might be good I can see a doctor and wow – my temp is just 39 and thanks God my BP is normal inspite of my labored breathing. hehehe. My throat is inflamed but not really. The culprit was the cold — so at 4 pm, I went home and straight to bed. Took Paracetamol 2 times the whole night (Dimple hovering always asking me — are u ok mom? you are so hot mom/ what do you want mom? hahaha she sounded right away that she cares hahaha) and this morning, I felt better than yesterday, so am back at the office — wahhhhhhhhhhhhhh so many things waiting up for me. I thought all I am gonna do is the updating of syllabus and now there is the organizational chart again — hmmm why can’t they do this? huhuhuhu They really think it’s my job. ok? fine.

Anyways, I just hope my temp won’t shoot up again or I wil really go back to home to rest. My being sick and being treated by the doctor and meds is not compensated. So i’d better rest. Never mind the accreditation fever? LOL
