Funny Moment: Working Out With My Little One Be Like

I tried my best focusing on leg workouts, but I lost my focus because of my eight-year-old son, who was copying me. He was so silly, lol. Oh, I love him to the moon and back!

He just told me “Mommy, this is how to use this #GoFit band.”

Childhood Story: My Unforgettable, Funniest Moment Growing Up

While having a cup of coffee this morning and staring at the dishes piling on the sink, a flashed back of my childhood memory came back. It is one of those annoying childhood experienced at that time; however, right now, looking back at it, I would say, “that was hilarious.”
When I was about seven or eight-years-old, my father implemented this rule. It was all about dishes problem

First Attempt: That my older siblings and I had to take turns in washing the dishes after mealtime. At first, it was okay! But you know, kids don’t stick to the rules mos lt of the time. My siblings and I were one of those kids. Later on, nobody wants to wash the dishes anymore. My siblings and I were pointing fingers to who’s supposed to be washing dishes after mealtime. We ended up arguing, lots of crying and throwing a tantrum. My dad would give us three warnings, and if we don’t listen, we better expect my dad with a whooping stick coming our way like a tornado. My mom is quite and always able to keep herself calm. She was so patient with us growing up and doesn’t believe in whooping. I wish to have that kind of patient like my mom has. Well, that first rule didn’t work out!

Second Attempt: The very last one to finish the meal will wash the dishes and clean the table. Now, this was ridiculous (but makes me laugh right now). I remember, whenever my mom announces that the meal is ready, my siblings and I had to rush to the kitchen, wash our hands, sit on the chairs, pray for the food, and eat as fast as we could. (My sister, by the way, likes to kick my legs under the table to distract my concentration, hahaha. I remember, one time, she was kicking our father’s legs instead of mine, hahaha). Back to that rule, yes, we had to eat fast, take our plates, and put them on the sink as quickly as we could. The last one to do that will wash the dishes. Did it work? Nope, it was chaos! Even my mom and dad had to eat fast, trying to beat us, lol! So, my father had to think about a new and final rule. A rule that everybody would agree to do so. No arguing. No fighting. No throwing tantrum.

Third & Final Attempt: How about “Wash your own dishes” rule? Oh, yeah, this rule worked! After mealtime or snack time, we automatically wash our dishes — no more pointing fingers, no rushing to finish our meals, and, most of all, no more arguing.

Since then, my family applied that rule to doing our laundry and not depend on our mom to do the laundry all by herself. So each of us, including my father, had to do our own laundry.

How about you? What was the most annoying house rule you had experienced growing up that is, in fact, hilarious?

My U.S. Naturalization Oath Taking Ceremony

Last Friday was my U.S. Naturalization Oath Taking ceremony in New Orleans. It’s a five (5) hours drive from my town. We left Thursday after I picked up my boys at school. We arrived in New Orleans a little after 9 p.m. Checked in late at the hotel we stayed in for the night. The hotel we stayed at is called Brent House Hotel. This hotel is attached to Ochsner Medical Center located on Jefferson Highway near Uptown New Orleans. From the hotel, it was only a 15-minute drive to where my Oath Taking ceremony took place.

AT THE CEREMONY

We arrived at the USCIS facility before nine (9) in the morning. The ceremony started a little after ten (10) and was over at about twelve (12) noon. I wasn’t sure how the other applicants felt that day but I was a little emotional. After I applied, I waited eleven (11) months for this very special day. After living in the USA for a decade, who wouldn’t get emotional?

AFTER THE CEREMONY

Now it’s time to celebrate! My boys are so ready to explore around New Orleans. They are loving this busy city so far.

Finally, I Found The Most Comfortable Running Shoes

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Finding the right pair of running shoes has been a struggle for me for a long time. I would say most of the walking or running shoes that I have not only hurt my feet but also give me blisters. I couldn’t even wear any of those shoes for a long time without having pain on my legs. Until one day, I went to the Shoe Department Encore store at the mall to pick up my eldest son’s shoes that I put on layaway. While I was at the store, my gut really told me to go check out their Clearance Room for good deals (when your gut is telling you something you gotta trust it ). I get disappointed most of the time because whenever I find very comfortable shoes it’s either the size runs big or they don’t have my size. I wear a size 5 and that’s size 3 in girls. Hahahaha it’s a cute size!

So I checked the store’s Clearance Room and saw this pair of Skechers Elite Flex. The first thought on my head was “please I need a size five (5). When I picked the right foot and checked the size, I was like YEAH BABY YOU’RE MINE! Also, guess what? It was on sale for under twenty dollars ($20.00). So delighted I went to the store that day because these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS SHOES?

I can literally wear this pair all day long without pain in my legs and feet. The memory foam inside feels so good. Yes, this pair has memory foam inside. I Tested it for a week by wearing the pair every day and yes it passed my expectation. I highly recommend these shoes.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT THIS SHOES?

The only thing I don’t like is the soles. They collect dirt and rocks and when you clean it, you have to dig it out.
