I can’t believe it! I have exhausted my all my tasks. So now I have nothing to do – oh that’s not accurate at all. I still have tons to do but those can wait. So just to celebrate I will be having my day off today. I won’t be doing anything blog related for the whole day and that’s a promise!
Okay, so what does a work-at-home mom do when she doesn’t have work? Well, spend quality time with her kids, of course. So today we will play the whole day and watch television and eat to our heart’s content. This is a time to celebrate and I’m happy I can just take the day off just like that.
I’ve been seeing some pests in this old house that we’re living in. What I hate most are the mice and the cockroaches. Like the other day, I discovered there were some of roaches hiding at the back of our cabinet. I also saw two tiny mice running around the kitchen last night.
I want to get rid of them fast as I know pests carry with them some diseases. I don’t know where I can get help here. If I were in Houston, I would certainly call for Bulls Eye Pest Control, Houston Pest Control company. I heard they have over 50 years of experience in eliminating pests.
Bulls Eye Pest Control specializes in eliminating termites, fire ants, fleas, and bees. They use cutting edge technology and they are reliable.
I wish we can get rid of the pests in our house sooner. If we don’t do anything today they will multiply fast and pretty soon we have a big problem in our house.

At Chateau Royale in Batangas. It boasts of a mini-zoo, a pond, playground, a mini-theater, and a swimming pool.
Did you know that spy equipment is not only for spies? Yes, even moms like me would benefit from it. I think the most important spy equipment I would need is the GPS tracking device. When I’m out with my son I always fear for his safety. I think about what I would do if I lose sight of him and somehow lose him in a crowded mall or street. I have already prepared him by telling him who to approach but nothing would be better if I have a tracking device inside his pocket as an added precaution.
For our house, I would also need a spy camera. The holiday season is approaching and this is the time thieves like the most because homeowners are out visiting relatives and going on out-of-town trips. A spy camera inside our house would surely come in handy in case someone decides to break in.
Now it is possible to travel to outer space. Virgin Galactic opens first commercial spaceport in New Mexico. Of course, this is only for the rich because of its hefty price tag of $200,000. Hmm, I wonder what work-at-home job I can engage in to be able to afford that amount. LOL! It would have been nice to see Earth from outer space. Anyway, maybe I’ll win the lotto tomorrow and I can afford the tickets next week. Okay, you can wake me up now. hehe
Investing in gold bars is a wise decision. I read Francisco Colayco’s book about financial literacy and one thing he said again and again was to invest your money in something that would beat inflation. Just keeping it in your bank is not wise because the interest rate is so low that pretty soon inflation will take over it.
He suggested investing into mutual funds and we have already started doing that. However, I heard that gold is also a good investment because its value keeps on appreciating as time passes. We might definitely try this because we want our money to be able to beat inflation. I heard it’s already convenience now to buy gold and you can even have it delivered for safekeeping directly to your bank.
I am a member of Nuffnang and I must admit I enjoy their blog contests. I wanted to join their latest contest on Goldilocks: Pagbabago but didn’t get around to making my post. Well, I’m glad I didn’t because reading the entries I know I wouldn’t have had stood a chance. The winning entries are so good and some are even heartbreaking. The grand prize winner lost his family in a massacre and she even witnessed the tragedy first hand. The second involved domestic violence. I like these contests because we get to learn important lessons from real people. Congratulations on the winners and I hope you enjoy your well-deserved prize.

Having a car adds convenience to our lifestyle. However, if a car can be your best friend, it can also be your worst enemy at times especially when it breaks down in the middle of the road. Even if we’re vigilant in maintaining our car there’s no guarantee that it will not break down on the road. As a matter of fact, even brand new cars suffer from this from time to time. That is why having roadside assistance is a must. With roadside assistance, you can call for help anytime, anywhere. It’s also affordable for the average motorist.
Saving money is really hard. We are always being bombarded by product advertisements on TV, radio, and internet that as soon as we receive our money we are often that not out of the door trying to spend it. I’m quite frugal by normal standards but that doesn’t mean I don’t have periods of careless spending. That’s why sometimes, no matter how much I try to save I still fail.
This can be really frustrating that’s why I’m thinking next time I will just buy gold. At least it’s harder to spend gold than money, right? Also, gold appreciates in time so my money is intact and at the same time I am assured that my investment is beating inflation.
