Merry Christmas Greetings for Blog

If you are looking for a place to find cute Animated Christmas Cards or Animated Christmas Greetings for your blog, well, here is one. (At the bottom of this post).

Have you got your Christmas Gifts yet? If not, you can go to my Christmas Gifts Ideas Squidoo Lenses for some last minute Christmas Gift ideas. This year we got the kids bubble guns and water guns and books and kites and for ourselves books and decorative items for the house and for the helper a perfume. We went shopping together so everyone knows what they're getting. That kind of takes out half the fun of it but they're all wrapped up now under our 'Christmas tree' (our clothes hanger which doubles up as our Christmas tree every year) so no one gets to it till Christmas so there's still the fun of anticipation and waiting....

I've been getting a lot of visit on my Christmas Gifts lenses as well as my Color Themed Christmas Decorations lens. Looks like everyone is in the mood for a colorful Christmas. It puts me in the mood too.

Just in case I am too busy to update my blog till then, Merry Christmas 2011 and thanks for supporting and visiting my blog. Hope you all have a good holiday.

Going to be Seniors Soon

The other day we were taking public transportation and someone offered my spouse a seat. "I don't think I look that old do I?" he said. I had a good laugh about it and told him kindly that it was probably because my girl was with him. So the kind Samaritan who offered the seat probably thought it would be easier for him to handle the girl who was also standing.

The truth is, we are both heading toward senior hood. (If there is such a word). In a few years time we will qualify for senior rates for public services! I think its time we look at life insurance for seniors.

There is a life insurance calculator to help us decide how much life insurance we need. This is a very useful tool indeed. It will help you to do some of your own calculations before you ask for life insurance quotes.

Time really flies. I can't imagine that I am going to be a senior in a few years.

Travelling with Dad

Its just one more month to Chinese New Year. Time really flies. Dad was just out of hospital around this time last year. We were very thankful that he was able to be discharged just before New Year after a 2 month stay at the hospital.

Last year we were very fortunate to get a good Travel nurse to accompany dad for the long journey back to our hometown. Unfortunately, because she is a very good nurse, she has been sent to another family to work. She was with dad for one year and he has taken to her. She is both gentle but firm with him, a truly wonderful nurse.

We have had a few other nurses after her. Some of them female and some male nurses but I must say that some of them are new and just getting started on the job. They are not as competent as the nurse before.

This year, I hope that dad will get another good Travelling nurse so that he will have a comfortable journey home.

Daily Affirmations on How to Be A Better Wife

As a Stay At Home Mother, sometimes I am so tired of dealing with the kids all day, I forget to be a wife. That is why I subscribe to some internet newsletters to give myself Daily Affirmations on How To Be A Better Wife.

I think it is a good idea to subscribe to such a newsletter. Just go to a Marriage and Relationship website that you think is good and subscribe to their daily newsletter if they have one. It will serve as a good daily reminder on how you should act and react as a wife.

There is a lot of information on the internet and I hardly have the time to read them. I would not surf the net very much unless there is something specific I am looking for so having something delivered to my mailbox is a good way of making me read.

I do subscribe to some other relationship sites on my Google Reader. However my Google Reader is so full of unread blog posts that I often just tune off altogether. So the best way is still to subscribe to a newsletter.

The daily affirmations I receive remind me to be patient, to give more and ask less, to listen better, be more forgiving, to think before I speak etc. Of course, I have read and know all these things but it does help to be reminded of it daily and like anything else, you become better with practice even being a wife and mother.
