They Love Their Electronic Toothbrush

It’s been more than 2 months since daddy got Alycia and Sherilyn a battery-operated toothbrush and they are still very much fascinated with the gadget.  They do not seem to get bored brushing their teeth with the electronic toothbrush….. and it’s good news to health freak mommy coz she brushes their teeth after every meal or at least 3 times a day.  I’m really obsessed with brushing their teeth and cleaning their tongue…. and  I am even more obsessed with brushing and flossing my own teeth!

My Sunday

Today has been a quite a dull Sunday for me.  Alycia is still feeling very listless as a result of the medication for her throat infection.  She has been sleeping almost the entire day, which is very unusual of her.  Sherilyn has also caught the virus from Alycia and daddy but she’s still very active and eating well.  Praying hard that she will not get a full-blown flu. 

At noon, I saw some rare offers from a few advertising networks but luck wasn’t with me and I didn’t manage to get any.  Was really disappointed.  I had already clicked on the ‘accept’ tab for a task from this network but somehow, a ‘duplicate key’ error message appeared after a 10-minute heart-wrecking moment waiting for the system to confirm my acceptance but alas the USD10 offer was gone….. again….. twice in 3 days…. how very frustrating!

God must have known I was very disappointed with a fruitless harvest and he sent me a bunch of offers from my favorite network.  Offers have been really very scarce these days after the big G smackdown and getting a bunch of offers today has really brought back some hope and joy to me.

Gotta put the gals to bed now. I hope the new week ahead will be more fruitful and not so heart breaking and heart wrecking!

New Year Resolutions Or Not Meme

This tag from Slave Mom  happens to be my first tag for this year.  Ok, to begin with, I don’t normally have new year resolutions coz I don’t want to feel pressured to achieve them.  Since I’m given this tag, I guess I’ll have to come up with one. Here it goes :

 *Start Copy Here*
When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions we seem to fall into four categories: 1) quite serious about them, 2) be flippant about them, 3) do it because we feel pressured to, or 4) do not do them.

So, the purpose of this little game is to let us know which category you are in. Copy from “*Start Copy Here*” through “*End Copy Here*” and post it. Before “*End Copy Here*” tell us who you are, your site(s) (with link) and your New Year’s Resolution, or not.

Then tag as many others as you like, from one to your entire blogroll, your choice. If you like, create an intro paragraph to your post that also acknowledges who tagged you.

Juliana – Juliana’s Site – My New Year’s resolutions are looking for a part time job, keep blogging, and learn to cook and bake.

Michelle – Rusin Roundup – 1. Learn to be happier and accept myself for who I am, 2. Is to lose about 25 lbs., and 3. Is to stop smoking.

Karen – Grow Rich Along With Me – My resolution for next year is to achieve $3K per month passive income by the end of 2008.

Mel – Attitude, the Ultimate Power & Complain Complain Complain – “I don’t need no stinking resolutions.” I never hold to them anyway so why frustrate myself by starting them now.

Sandee – Comedy Plus – I don’t need no stinking resolutions either. Years and years ago I did them because everyone else did, but not once did I follow through. Why set yourself up for failure?

Lynda – lynda’s loft – My resolution is to see resolve to that which needs resolution. Like Mel and Sandee, I feel that resolutions give us more stress, however, being a person who sets goals each year, isn’t that the same thing as a resolution??? Goals vs. resolutions? Goals are more general and allow for more time to complete them, a resolution requires a mind-set and immediate action, which is not always feasible… Well, that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it…

Amelia – Amel’s Realm – This is a list of my New Year’s Resolution:1. Health: Continue exercising twice a week, eat enough veggies and fruit, have enough rest, take vitamin C regularly and women’s multivitamin during my period.2. Spiritual: Improve my Daily Bread reading routine and my prayer life and learn more from God’s Word.3. Financial: Continue to make money online (my goal is getting €100 per month at least), be more creative in writing posts, and save most of the money.4. General Life: Continue to learn Finnish AND practice it as best and often as I can, try out more baking and cooking recipes, continue to maintain and share positive thoughts, continue to learn to control my thoughts, continue to learn to catch myself before I start complaining and count my blessings instead, continue to stop and cherish all the little moments in life that oftentimes go unnoticed, and continue to feed my inner child and last but not least, continue to ENJOY my life thoroughly.

Trinity – Rooms of My Heart : My New Year’s resolutions in simple and fast way will be blog less and spend more time with my children and read more good books. I want to start studying about global warming and blog it…

Max – MAX – My New Year’s resolutions are to dedicate more time to my friends; to finally be able to read “Der Spiegel” in German; to be calm when organizing my marriage; to go one last time to my favourite club and dance the night away; and continue to be happy!

Eric – Speedcat Hollydale – I love chicken. Problem is that I really never get to have enough chicken! My New Year’s resolution is to enact “Chicken Tuesday”. On this day I will eat only chicken, blog about chicken, and promote chickens all over the world. (hormone free) Join me, won’t you?

Marzie – Mariuca & Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery – My resolution for 2008 is to enjoy a healthier lifestyle and to expand my Perfume Collection.

Sindi- Life Is A Roller Coaster – My resolution is to complain less, pray more and be a little more thankful for what I have.

Judy – Sugar Queen’s Dream – My New Year’s resolution is:To take better care of my health.To eat better, well at least 3 meals a day, I’m lucky these days if I stop for one meal a day….To help make the world a better place to live, I love the human race, but think there’s always room for change.To be generous until it hurts.To live each day as if it’s my last.To make a book of our personal family recipes and traditions for each of my 3 my children, so that the traditions and family cooking can be passed on in my family line long after I’m gone and finally…….To help more with the local Human society, Animals like little kids can not fend for themselves so it’s up to each of us to take care of our pets and to step in and care for all animals…..I hope that through me I can encourage my Children to be better adults and in turn to raise the Children they have or will have, to be good people with good, sound & solid values…. Peace!

Adrian – First Time Dad – My New Year’s Resolution for 2008 is to be a better father…now I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions because I never keep them but this one I better keep! Happy New Year to one and all!

Colin – Life – New Years Resolution? No way…Better to achieve more throughout the year rather than pander to the whims of a one day ‘wishful thought’

Mauro – 1 Million Love Messages – My resolution for next year are: 1. Change my job (maybe work online). I’m really unhappy in the actual one. 2. Dedicate more time to my family and girlfriend… maybe start to get ready for our wedding 3. Work hard in 1 Million Love Messages and reach 2500 Love messages (or more) in the end of 2008.

MidgetManOfSteel – Mental Poo – To get out of dealing with people who I have no desire in helping at the job I’m doing…catch the eye of someone who can see that I can write and be funny…and get my own ticket to happiness from my humor….and a Ferrari. While I’m doing this, I resolve to get a Ferrari.

Stacy – My Thoughts – My New Year’s Resolution for 2008 – Is to be more understanding to my children and to other people, Not to curse at others while I am driving, try to eat right and exercise, try to volunteer in my community, and to believe more in my spiritual side.

Jason – & – Although, I normally don’t do New Year’s Resolutions (because I find it as an excuse to actually do something I should’ve already been doing), this year I will plan on giving back to the blogging community, especially my audience. I’m not sure how I will do it yet, but I definitely will.

Kesa – Little Aussie Cynic – My New Years Resolution is the standard….. to finally get off the smokes and to loose 8kg…. both which are possible just difficult…..Happy New Year to you and yours….Aussie

Ann – A Nice Place in the Sun – “To let the rest of my life begin as soon as possible.”

Wen – Little Paces – I want to sleep early to reduce my haggard and tired complexion. To blog better than last year and hopefully can save money from paid post so that we can immigrate to Australia. To spend more time with my children. To be able to bake.

Slavemom – Slavery Bliss – I’d like to have better control of my temper, be more organised and maintain my exercise regime.

Shireen – Health Freak Mommy –  To be more patient with my kids and spend more quality time with them.  Also, I wish I could shed all the weight that I will be gaining during this pregnancy by end of this year.

Future Make-Up Artist

After watching ‘Rich Bride Poor Bride’ and repeats of a short documentary on makeover on TV, Sherilyn has been practicing her beautician and hairdresser skills on me. Whilst I sit in front of the computer typing, she loves climbing on a stool to comb and ‘wash’ my hair. Next, she would bring a tiny toy cup and pretend to dab her forefinger on the cup, then dab my eyelids as if applying eye-shadow on my eyelids. She also loves to watch intently how I apply make-up on my face.

That little vain post seems to show great interest in cosmetology. Perhaps she may even go to a beauty school in future to take up a course in cosmetology and land herself a salon job from or a professional make-up artist job. Of course I would very much want her to go to university and graduate with a degree but if her interest lies in cosmetology, I suppose I should let her choose what she loves best for she will surely excel in something that she has passion in.
