Excited with Buying a Laptop

>> Thursday, May 13, 2010

I’m so excited this week as I’m planning to buy myself a new partner in blogging. Yes I think I’m going to give in to my dream of buying myself a laptop in a couple of days. I’ve consulted my hubby if I’m going to buy a Sony VAIO notebook or the laptop that I saw on sale in their store. They’re having some discounts on the same specified model I want and I’m planning to buy it in their store.

Well I saw the discounted package on other store but I want to make my purchase on hubby’s company. It’s been the practice in our family to buy and patronize hubby’s company store whenever the product is available on them. Anyway they have the best deals compared to other appliance stores so it’s really best to buy our home and electronics appliances there. It will also add up to their branch accumulated sales for the month.


Shopping for School Plans

We’re planning to shop for the kids’ school things at the end of this month after the busy schedule so we can shop at our most convenient time. It’s not easy to shop for three kids at one time but I’ve already bought them school shoes at the start of summer vacation so I will not so tired when I shop at our usual department store. It’s easier to look for school bags because we don’t have to look for sizes unlike shoes and uniforms where you fit the items to your kids. It’s also the same with shopping for blouses, dress, skirts and lingerie that you have the best fitting because it will not look good.

Anyway my mind is far from that now as I don’t want to shop for myself. This month will only be for my dear little and not so little kids. My focus and attention is only for their schooling and their needs. Well after the school opening is over maybe I can shop for some little nice things for myself.


Working As A Team

Myspace Teamwork Graphics Quotes

Have you ever been in a team where there is only one goal? The goal is to finish whatever work or project is assigned to the team. Well I’ve been to that many times but the best I can say was when I was with the Technical Proposal team of DSI. We’re always working for certain bidded projects and through all the efforts, overnights and hard work we’re all set to one goal- and that is to finish the proposal before the submission time.

Even before we begin with the initial phase of doing proposal our minds were set to our due date that no matter how hard the project is we’re going to deliver it in good quality and on time. We can’t do it alone and we need the help of every member of our team. Our boss heads the company, our Vice President looked over the rest of the team, I headed the encoders and graphic artist, supervise the other members who were responsible for photocopying, binding, notarization and delivery. In our team there are no big or small positions because every one is important. We can’t finish it perfectly without the full cooperation of the team.

Well the pressure is so strong then and at times we felt like giving up especially on 3 consecutive sleepless nights where mind seems to wander due to tension, physical tiredness and lack of sleep. But when we have submitted our finished project and won the bid after several days we feel like achievers. If not for the whole team and for the hands that worked on the project our work will not be finished on time.


Why I Don’t Want to Drive

I’ve been asked many times by my friends why I don’t want to learn how to drive and I always answer them with a shrug and a wink which means I really don’t want to. Why? Because I love to travel and when I’m traveling I like thinking about my business plans and I write also. If I’m driving I won’t be able to do it because driving demands concentration on the road. Another reason is I feel tired when I see my hubby driving through the traffic jam. When I’m alone and I’m caught up in a traffic I just sit at the passenger vehicle and do nothing but if I’m the driver I’ll have to be alert on the road. In short traveling for me is like resting your body and mind from everyday worries and anxieties. It gives me a pleasure of enjoying the ride and making the most of the moment to think and plan.

Well there are other reasons but I don’t close my mind to the opportunity of driving but I’ll just wait for the time that I’ll be looking forward to this new experience. Anyway I love seeing beautiful cars and nice accessories and find it worthwhile to look at different ideas car owners have for their cars. I heard about custom bumper stickers and parking permits online. Yes you can have your own customized permit by designing your own tags for parking. You can choose from the varied designs they have at mavericklabel.com.

You can have the quotations online and order it from there or by phone whichever is convenient for you. You can have as fast as 4 days or less and in good quality that can last for a long period of time perfect for outdoor use.


Finding the Right Time to Work

I find it hard to work on long hours now as I’ve been loaded with offline tasks that need a lot of supervision. I also need to spend sometime with the kids as after this month the school will start and I will not be able to be with them the whole day. I’m just happy that my online work is flexible enough to be scheduled on my own plan. I can work in the morning, afternoon or in the evening whatever is convenient and applicable for my busy schedule.

Well now I find it comfortable working in the afternoon even if the hours seem to invite me to have siesta or afternoon nap. I’d like to work while almost every one is sleeping and resting because that’s the time that my mind works best. In the morning I have to cook, clean up and do some errands and at night I have to make sure that my kids had their dinner and prepared for sleeping before I can even begin to do my online tasks. I still have to prepare for DH’s dinner late at night when he arrives. Oh well sometimes it makes me so sleepy just when I’m about to write so I do bulk of my post in the afternoon. Just reminding myself always not to doze off lol!
