to FART or NOT TO FART???

It’s by nature that all of us fart. Let me just define FART. Fart is a combination of gasses such as nitrogen, oxygen, methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. It travels from the stomach to the anus. When we swallow too much air or we have indigestion gas becomes trapped inside our stomach and one way it is released is through farting. There are smelly farts. This is because of the food that we eat such as beans, cabbage, cheese, soda, and eggs. The gas that makes our farts stink is the hydrogen sulfide gas. This gas contains sulfur which causes farts to have a smelly odor.

It is human nature to fart but why is it so embarrassing for most of us when it happens. Sometimes a fart can be quiet and sometimes creates a funny weird sound and accompanied by a foul smell. Like my mom. Since she is old already there are instances that she can’t control her farting. Many old people have uncontrollable farting and for me this should not be embarrassing at all. Whenever someone farts everybody starts to laugh or make a big deal even becomes a big turn off for people dating.

It happened to me once when I was still in school. I accidentally farted in front of my classmates and everybody was like “who was that?” “eeeewww, GROSS!!” I just kept quiet due to sheer embarrassment. Though it was not smelly, I did not have the nerve to admit it that I was the one who farted.

Now really? what’s the big deal with Farting??? I think we should be just cool about it. It happens. It’s natural. I think it’s really mean to tag a person as disgusting whenever he or she farts in public. Yes, it may sometimes stink but all of us has to release it and hiding it will just make a person sick and suffer gas pains.

On the average, a healthy person farts 16 times a day. Everyone farts. In fact, females fart just as much as males.
Animals fart too. Cats, dogs, and cows. Elephants fart the most. People fart during sleep. Sometimes a fart may contain large amounts of methane and hydrogen gas that may become flammable. It’s not healthy to stop or control a fart.

So, I believe that we have to FART and really FART….

Is there a Mr and Ms Right?????

For most of us we have our dream of finding the perfect partner. We make standards, create the picture of the ideal person we want to be with in our minds. The handsome guy with the perfect smile who has a great sense of humor, the very witty and intelligent woman with really long black hair or the simple wealthy person. We always plan who we want to marry or who we want to date but in reality is there really a perfect Mr or Ms Right?

I have met a lot of men, dated a few (ahem) and every time I’m in a relationship I would always have the impression that he may be the one or I want him to be the one. It’s quite common for some to have that same kind of thinking. After every bad breakup or even an amicable one I would say, NOPE! he was not the one.

I married a man 7 years older than I am. I thought at that time he was the one. In my mind he was the perfect guy for me.There was no stopping me marrying my (ex) husband. After a few good years later, things did not work out. Turns out he was not Mr Right at all. He had eyes for younger women and I was getting older and wiser. Not that I’m saying I am perfect or I was her Ms Right. I would say I did have flaws as a wife too. But I could definitely say and look anyone straight in the eye that I did my very best to save the marriage. I gave up my job just to be a stay at home mom and be a housewife.

Anyways, there is no perfect Mr or Ms Right in this world. As we journey through life we just make ourselves better through the years. We learn from our mistakes and apply what we have learned in our personal lives. All of us work hard to be the best partner. We live day by day striving to become the best mother, father, husband, wife, son, daughter and so on because we want to make the people around us happy and content.

God created us in His own perfect image but as we live through life we gain imperfections and shortcomings, then again what is important is we focus on being a better and successful person, a loving, caring and likable person.

Not Mr or Ms Right but JUST RIGHT.

My beautiful daughters

Look how fast they have grown from tiny little babies to gorgeous gals. I’m so proud of them!!!

i assume you like me or not….

We sometimes send the wrong signals to other people. Signals such as a nice pat on the back, a simple “good morning, take care on your way home, You look good today” so on and so forth. We mistake this gestures as an act to show that the other person might be interested in us. We feel these emotions or feelings especially when we like the person or have feelings for that person. “Assuming” People assume. Unknowingly we assume that a simple handshake or smile may mean something deeper but in fact it was just a plain hello or how are you.

I have a story of a girl who had a crush on one of her male co-worker. The guy is notorious to be an asshole. However the girl noticed that whenever she is around the guy would show a different side of him. Some people noticed this as well. The guy would say Good bye at the end of the day. Sometimes he would come to her table and just stare and make jokes. The girl noticed that some small favors are being given to her as well. But there are days when the guy would be distant or simply not interested to mingle. The girl thinks the guy knows she has feelings for her that’s why sometimes he would act different towards her.

To assume, is not good at all. We may get disappointed or even get hurt. To make false assumptions just make things worst. An act of kindness may not always mean you like the person. This may just show that some people are very polite and considerate.

Why assume?? Just get straight to the point. Talk about your feelings, get to know the person. You may never get answers to questions running through your mind. You may just be making a fool of yourself. Just say it, don’t ever assume.

Frenemies

We have friends, we have enemies and believe it or not for some we have frenemies. A frenemy is both a friend and rival. This may also be defined as an enemy disguised as a friend. This is very common in the workplace and in school. We all know that we always aim to be the best and we want to excel among our peers but there are certain occasions that we have friends who would also aim for the same things that sometimes a competition comes out of it. We do not want to hurt or step on anyone but sometimes we can’t prevent this from happening. It does not mean that you want to totally destroy or put someone down but we also think about what we are supposed to accomplish in life. Frenemies are sometimes one of our closest friends. They may do things to break our spirit and self-confidence. We may fight back and we may remain quiet. We do not need frenemies, but the truth is they are there to make you aware that not everybody is as honest and peace-loving as you may think. They keep us on our toes.

Maturity is the best approach in dealing with frenemies. Learn to play the game, but never play dirty. Keep it real, know your limitations and most of all make a name for yourself. A name you can be proud of, a character that is built with integrity and respect. We have to play fair and not pull each other down. We have to own our mistakes and be responsible enough to change things.

Frenemies will just be around, listening, waiting and planning. We can’t prevent them from spreading bad things about us but we can show them that we are far different from them. We are stable and refined. Nobody can take that away from us.

Let us just all keep it real.

my typical day

As a single working mom my days and nights are simply crazy… My day starts at 4:00 AM when the alarm on my phone rings. This means I have to wake up my 12-year-old son and prepare him for school. I prepare his hot chocolate a sandwich or whatever food he likes for breakfast. After eating he will start taking a shower, fix his hair with claydoh and a dash of his favorite men’s cologne. I prepare his school uniform and when he is all set, we sit outside the house to wait for his school bus. I make sure he has his mobile phone, lunch money and his iPod (to keep company in the bus) After a goodbye kiss he goes to school at around 5:30 AM. I go inside the house and my 2 daughters are still asleep as well as my brother and mom. I go to my room watch my favorite series Sex and the City on dvd, if I feel a little sleepy then I will grab a quick nap and wake up again around 7 or 7:30 AM. I exercise about 10 to 15 minutes and around this time my 2 daughters will be up and will be very busy inside the bathroom. I drink a cup of coffee then take a shower while my 2 college girls starts preparing for school. Oftentimes they would join me in my tricycle ride to the office (saves them transportation fare, hahahahaha!). We leave my mom and my brother at home. My brother will go out around 12:00 noon as soon as one of my kids arrive so mom will not be alone at home. I always pray on my way to work. I give thanks and I pray for the safety and good health of my children, my whole family, friends, enemies, co workers. I ask for God’s blessings and mercy and focus for the day ahead. I offer and surrender my day to God.

My day starts at the office at 9:00 AM with another cup of coffee and light breakfast (pancakes or cookies). I work, process applications, talk to my colleagues, talk to my boss, have lunch there, work, work, work until 6:00 PM or if there is overtime until 6:30 PM or 7:00 PM. If a friend invites me for dinner or a little chat then I stay till 9:00 PM but normally I’ll be home by 7:00 PM to start preparing dinner (a quick one). After dinner, I shower and check my son’s homework, I help my kids do their school projects and then lay in bed watching a DVD movie with the kids or I start blogging or check my emails, text my friends and relatives. I have long conversations with each one of them if there are issues that needs to be sorted out. I talk to them, check on their progress in school, ask them if they have problems. I usually sleep around 11:00 PM or until I feel really sleepy. When I can’t sleep I would listen to some dance or slow music, depends on the mood.

My weekends are for family most especially for the kids, either we go grocery shopping or just go to the malls and have pizza or burgers. Sundays, I make sure I go to church, Praise and give thanks to the Lord for all the blessings and love.

It seems like a boring life to some but it’s really hectic for me. I get tired. Yes! everyday but it’s all worth it when I see my family and my kids happy and content. You don’t feel the pressures of life when you feel loved, appreciated and needed.

A typical day for a mom like me is truly rewarding especially when you love and care for the people around you. It’s a lot of hard work and I salute all working moms out there.

Great job SUPER MOMS!!!!
