I told my husband how much I wanted to have an acoustic guitar so that I can learn to play with it. He promised that he will give it to my last Christmas but for some reason, he was not able to give it to me that time but he reassured me that I'll have it before my birthday comes in April. He said that he's thinking about getting me one of these Shure microphones too because he knows that I really love to sing also. I am so excited and I can't wait to finally have them. Right now, my husband set some money aside just to make sure that really can get them for me.

Last Saturday was our first Bible study fellowship this year and my family and I can't wait for the second one tomorrow. It's really a blessing to learn more about Jesus and grow together in Him daily. For last Saturday's Bible study, my husband was the one who handled the topic to share and it was really wonderful! We can't wait to meet our fellow Christians tomorrow for our Bible study again.

Not only that my husband will get me a musical instrument for Christmas, he said that he will add this sure microphone too to my list so that I can practice singing (well, its not really necessary but its nice to have) and when my friends come over to our place, they can use it too. In other words, we are going to have a videoke soon in our future gathering. We can also use it for our church. I am so blessed that my family and I love music a lot! We might as well, create our own band, right? My daughter and I can sing and my husband will be the drummer and guitarist. Miriam can play violin too while she sings. Miriah on the other hand might play the congas or hand drum. This is so exciting and I am hoping that this will really happen, God be willing. :)
So far, Miriam is still loving school despite the fact that she didn't have any friends yet. We told her to just focus on learning and not to worry about that kind of stuff. Now she completely understand and come home happy all the time. Unlike before, she felt so left out and sad. On the other hand, she still wants to go back to her old school at Evergreen Christian school because she likes the kids in there. According to her, they're very friendly to her. Again, we told her to just love the kids at her new school because they don't have the same upbringing as those who are in the Christian school. Most of them came from a poor and broken family. Anyway, here is our little 4th grader at 13th day of school:




I've been applying so many jobs nowadays and one of them is for the position, car insurance agent. I know that I don't have any experience for the said position but I am more than willing to be trained for it and if its God's will for me to get the job, then it will be mine no matter what. Anyway, talking about this kind of job, I am so grateful that there is a place in North Carolina who can really handle your auto insurance well. This makes me more interested in getting a job just like these guys did so that I can also help so many people who deserves to have the best coverage they can get. I'm glad that we got one too.
Miriam is loving school and hopefully not just for the first week but all throughout the school year. She said that she did a great job on her reading according to her teacher. Also, she's very excited to join their school band. She wanted to play violin and hopefully she will really enjoy it. Later today, after school, she will start her first day of her ballet class for this school year and she's very excited about it too. Pretty soon, she might go back to home schooling due to all her activities as she progresses in each one of them too. She needs more time to practice and it might affect her school. In this case, homeschooling will be the best option as she can do her school stuff anytime. We'll cross the bridge when we got there. Anyway, I wanted to share her second day of school photo with her little sister. More school photos to be uploaded soon.

Before, I used to worry a lot about my husband if he has a snoring problem because every time he is in deep sleep, he made this really creepy snore sound which really concerns me. One thing that I have observed though is that he's too stress at work and that could be one of the reasons or perhaps he drinks too much coffee? I suggested that he should just take it easy at work and don't allow anything to stress him out and if he can, I also suggested to lower his cup of coffee in a day so instead of drinking 2 cups, he only drinks 1 cup. He tried all that and yes, he's not snoring anymore. Anyway, for others though, I heard that snoring is really an issue or a problem for them no matter what. I remember, my husband's cousin who snores really loud and little did we knew, it was actually because of her health issues too. She knew that she had snoring problem and she's very open to any suggestions or advices about it so telling her about a snoring relief I found online would be very helpful to her. I can't wait to tell her this good news!
Today is Miriam's first day of school and officially her first regular school where she actually starts from the very beginning. Although she tried going to regular schools but she's been homeschooled most of the time. When she left for school this morning, she was very excited and can't wait to start learning at school. I asked her if she wants to ride the school bus but she prefers to be riding our own car and drop her off at school.  I can't wait to hear from her how's her day at school when she's back later.

Here is our 4th grader showing her big smile early in the morning for her first day of school:

This pandeiro is in my husband's music list already. To me, it looks like a wavedrum that he already have but I'm not sure what it sounds like yet or how it works. We will find out if we can get one soon. When it comes to music, my husband is really into it and I cannot blame him for that because it runs in his blood and most of all, he loves to worship God through music. He is part of our church's worship team and he plays, bass guitar, drums and percussion. He's a phenomenal musician! I am so proud of him.
It's been over a week now since I had my surgery and I am thankful to God for a very fast recovery. I am not completely healed yet but I am feeling way better already that I can walk straight without any pain or I can lay down in bed comfortably and sleep in my sides too. Although I am feeling better, I still need to take it easy because the incisions are still fresh. Later today, I will be going to my doctor for follow up. Its going to be a busy day for me but it'll be fun too :-) I will take the kids to the mall after my appointment too.
