Missing My Family So Much

I have been cranky for days. And I don’t understand why little things upset me so quickly. Every time I found myself being upset over little things, I get more frustrated. I know that’s not me, but I can’t help it, and I don’t understand why I get angry so quickly? Maybe I’m just tired? I don’t know.
Right now, all I know is I miss my family back home so much! It seems like every time I planned to go home, something always happens. I’m pretty sure everyone else that lives away from their family feels the same way. So, if you live close to your family for a few minutes or a few hours’ drive, you are fortunate! Because being on the other side of the globe from your family is never easy. Every time I need my family, they can’t be with me. Although we can talk on the phone and chat on Facebook, that’s not enough.
With all the chaos going on right now and this COVID thing, my heart aches so bad. I want to be with my parents, and I want to take care of them, cook for them, and do something for them. The problem is, it’s not that easy. Also, I don’t know when that is going to happen. If they are only a few hours drive away from me, I won’t hesitate to visit them, that’s for sure.

So be grateful if your family lives close to you. Spend time with them. Have fun with them, and enjoy every moment with them.

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.

Knit Sweater Kind Of Day

It’s Spring season, however, it doesn’t feel like it. It’s been raining for days and it’s really nasty outside. Even my furry baby (my dog) doesn’t wanna go out. So, for days I’m back to wearing sweaters. Just the lighter ones, not those thick sweaters. This knit sweater I am wearing below is just perfect!

I don’t know why, but I get to feeling cold too quick, especially in this kind of weather. I’m from a tropical country (Philippines) and I love to feel cozy all the time. Who doesn’t want to feel cozy anyway? Right? Spring is not my favorite season at all. When it’s not raining during Spring, I will be so miserable because of my allergies, and I can’t stay outside longer because of the pollen. Thankfully, the rain helps reduce my allergies to pollen. On the other hand, when it’s raining, I can’t wear t-shirts because I always feel cold too quick. Hmm, what should I do? Can anybody relate to this?

About this sweater? I got this from Belk like a year ago. I love this sweater so much. Honestly, this is my most favorite and comfortable knit sweater ever! Also, I only paid under $10.00 for this including tax.

Meet Daisy:Schnauzer + Havanese Breed

I always wanted to have a dog, but never thought that day would come. Sometimes, when Sean and the boys are not home, I feel so alone. The house is so quiet, and sometimes I talk to myself, lol. Have you ever felt that way when you’re alone? Well, that’s my case.

One day, Sean visited his family in Springfield, Missouri. At his parents house was a cute puppy. She was a rescue puppy. She’s a Schnauzer + Havanese breed. I didn’t know about her yet until Sean called me on the phone and told me about her. I was like “send me a picture of her, please”. When I received the photos that Sean sent me, guess what? I was like a little kid wanting for candies, hahaha. Right then, I asked him to bring her home. I was so excited!

My Dog Named Daisy

Meet my furry baby girl, Daisy. When she arrived home with Sean, I was not the only one who was so excited, but also my two boys who are 10 and 7-years-old. Their reaction was “mommy…..look, it’s a puppy!” We were so happy to finally met her.

Daisy made us smile and laugh almost all the time. She is such a sweetheart! Also, I never thought I would sleep with a dog beside me. Maybe she thinks she’s a human. We love her dearly! Whenever my boys are ready for bed time, Daisy knows that it’s time to say good night to them and she’ll get excited; jumping on their beds and licked their faces; wants them to scratch her tummy.

She is a blessing to us and we love her so much. She is so special. It warms my heart to hear my boys giggling all the time, and playing with her. We’re blessed to have her.

There are days that she goes with me to my kids school to pick them up. When she see the boys at the pick up area, she’ll wag her tail like it will never stop at all. Before, at the school pick up area, my boys would say “hi mommy” as soon as they get into the vehicle. Now, they’re like “oh my God, hi Daisy! Are you happy to see us, Daisy?” Am I jealous? Of course not! It makes me more happier to see my boys that happy. Bless their hearts!

Fun Day With My Dog

With her fluffy ears and wagging tail, how can I not smile? From the very first day, she always put a smile on my face and the faces of my family. It’s very true that there are benefits that dogs bring to our lives. Gosh, there’s never a dull moment in the house now.

Personally, petting her and talking to her helps me relax. Whenever I feel stressed ( everybody get stressed out sometimes ), I noticed that it wasn’t as bad as before. There is a big change in my mood since Daisy has been with us. She cracks me up all the time and I love it!
