Renting Forever?

Well, before I will go on with my rant, let me show you something that is worth knowing and worth for a grab.

List Price: $549.99
eBuffet Price: $249.99

List price: $599.99
eBuffet price: $299.99

Don’t you think they are adorable furnitures? I think they are and with a good price and great for a grab. Chances like this is not always. Right? I think most of us especially mommies love to hear that word that SALE and check out the malls – most moms are there during Sales days. i think that’s part of being practical these days. Check out eBuffet because they offer wide choices of dining room buffet cabinet and discount dining room buffet and many more.

Well, for days now i think some weeks that something has been bothering me. Growing in a family environment like mine, it is my wish to build or buy my own house. Am now at the right age of purchasing one but guess what? That wish is being dumped for now. I really hate to think about the negativity of it but really it’s negative for now and stop wishing for it. Why? Because in the applications or papers to be processed- it needs my ex-hubs signature. I was really upset about this. That is one very important thing that will never happen. In my own reasoning, it does not matter I have his name because of a marriage contract and has not been living together for 8 years now, it does mean that he has still right to anything I wanna own. Up really so upset about this. This may mean i will just rent a house or apartment forever. huhuhu

I think in few years time, if i can have my own house, i can renovate it to a style that i really want with a few nice furnitures like dining room buffets that will help beautify my simple home.

By the way, if you wanna order these furnitures or the tables or cabinets of your choices, you can contact them and pay thru your credit card and also you can use Paypal.

Having lived there for 3 years the tea i often drank which is the green tea. It is wht they serve you when you visit a home or when you eat at a restaurant (big or small). Jasmine has the sweetest fragrance of all the teas. Though they are nice to drink but i get dizzy when I go inside a tea shop because of it’s different smell. 🙂

Tuesday Toot – May 27, 2008

At last i got something to toot about this week. I have missed couple of weeks at TT because I just feel there was nothing exciting to share. Now something happened middle of last week (after Tuesday already) so i thought of sharing that experience in TT as my entry today. So my TT this week is HERE. Presently, I can say that most of the money is gone but I felt so light headed, less pressured and have genuine smiles. I still have petty problems but not as much before i paid my bills. I guess living as a single mom with many others depending on you is not an easy job – but this time, at least i have find some ways to help me with my monthly financial struggles.

Any by the way, not all the money went to my bills. I also took a part of the amount to buy me some books for my reading pleasure and also another footwear as posted in here.

Wishing all mommis out there a nice Tuesday!
