Selecting the right fitted and flat sheets, be they queen, twin XL or double sheets, can require more consideration than one might imagine. Many people prefer cotton sheets and the selection is vast – one can enjoy organic cotton sheets, cotton flannel sheets, cotton sateen sheets and even jersey knit cotton sheets, just to name a few popular choices. When selecting sheets, thread count is not the only consideration although a high thread count has often come to represent better quality sheeting. Some people prefer sheets which are a cotton polyester blend as they tend to be wrinkle-free.
Some equally important factors to consider include the stitching on the hems and edges – sheets should be double or even triple-stitched in order to stand up to lots of washing and drying; the gussets on fitted sheets should be deep enough to fit today’s modern “pillow-top” and other generously sized mattress formats and the flat top sheet should be large enough to provide adequate coverage.
Since so many people now use mattress enhancers, foam or feather mattress pads and even memory foam mattress covers, the surface area is often simply larger than a standard bed size. Sheets that scrimp on size can pose a problem; especially with a shared bed situation where one person keeps hogging all the sheets. Bigger is better – look for generously sized sheets when selecting your next set of bedding. A good rule of thumb is to have at least three sets of sheets with one on the bed, one in the wash and one at the ready.
It was really hot yesterday here in Temecula Valley. I couldn’t believe how hot it was knowing that it is still spring time. This is the reason why my husband wants to move in Orange county. There , the temperature is always mild. Not as cold and not as hot compared here in TV. Though I like the warm weather , I do complain when its brutally hot or when it’s extremely cold. So, I guess I would say yes when we plan to move out from this lovely place, the city of Temecula. I don’t know when but in the right time.
In the contrary to the title of the post, today was a perfect day, it was only in the low 80′s. My kids and I went to the pool and had some fun for couple hours. the day was not complete without photos to take . So, here are some photos to share.
I have so many reasons why I seldom use my laptop. I could enumerate a hundred reasons but I will only emphasize one, the speed of of this gadget. I don’t know all but of a sudden it slows down. I have high-speed internet . I’m using wireless connection and it is really slow. I have no patience in this regard because I’m used to the high speed connectivity. I know in some point that the problem is in my laptop, it is already 2-year-old and I should update it but then I love this laptop, I’m not ready to give this up and I’m not yet sure what brand to buy for the next one.
Do you have the same problem with your laptop? Well, let’s solve the problem right now. How? Well, do you know that this speed up my pc at Iolo.com could really fix the problem right away. I know you have follow-up questions that only them could answer. Visit their website now and get the answers in no time.
It’s time to keep the snow mobile with the care of ski doo snowmobile covers, after all its already spring and then summer. So, goodbye snow, and hello to you sunshine. It’s gonna be a brutal spring and summer. When I say brutal, I mean it’s extremely hot for months. Wishing that the cooling off is not later than September. I love warm weather though because there are more activities to choose from, compared to fall and winter. Would you agree?
To list some : swimming to the pool, stay along the beach, fishing, camping , and many more. And the best part is, you can wear light clothes and not wearing those bulky clothes for winter. Oh so refreshing to just wear shorts, tank tops, cropped shirts, and flip flops!
So what I’m doing here? Seriously, I’m posting an update! Very unusual to happen. Today is a sunny day and yes it’s a Sunday! We didn’t go to the church, Arianna is not feeling well. She cried in the middle of the night because she couldn’t walk and she really wanted to go to the restroom. She has a muscle strain I guessed from the game we had yesterday at the park. We played kick-ball with 4 bases and she did 3 home-runs.
This morning around 11am, we went to the pool . The bigger pool was freezing cold so we went to quiet pool instead. As expected, the pool is packed in just a matter of 30 minutes , the people started to come in . They don’t want to swim in the cold pool, who would want to anyway. We stayed there for an hour and headed home.
The kids are napping right now. I get bored so I was thinking to just update this blog instead of wasting my time on instagram and facebook, and youtube, and oh pinterest. I didn’t check my dashboard yet, hoping to have some tasks to write. This is all for today.
I love to save, and I like to spend. Yes, it is possible to save while you spend. How? Easy, just look around the things you need and use coupons or coupon codes when you check-out . Would you believe that I save a lot every time I shop? I do love shopping regularly. I can’t help it but to buy this, that and so on. Two or three items each time I go out for the purpose of buying the things that I want. BUT I always buy the sale items or I only buy if I have coupons on my hand. I don’t dare to buy a regular priced item. That’s how thrifty I am. As much as possible my savings should be prioritized, intact and secured for future use. Even though I like to spend, I make sure that I also save at the same time. I only spend the money that is intended for the items that I need and want. I know when to stop spending but my eyes are keep looking, and remember where I saw them then come back the next time I have an extra money. Good for me I’m not an impulsive buyer.
Let’s talk about how I discovered coupons and when I started using them. Well, at first I have no idea about couponing because it was not common in the country where I came from. Then when I moved here in the US 4 years ago, I noticed that there are so many coupons in the mailbox and inserts in our daily newspapers. Right there and then I started using hard-copy coupons until these days. I always take advantage of the coupons that interest me. I’m glad that coupons are not only for department stores but also available for grocery and drug stores. Much more when I discovered the digital or online coupons brought to us by couponchief.com . How happy I am I have found this site. When I checked them out yesterday, there are tons of stores that you could shop with corresponding coupons. In fact, I search all my favorite stores and it amazed me because coupons are available! I can’t believe it. How much more savings I could get with couponing? I am extremely excited to take advantage of this opportunity. Would you like to join me?
This is our current den area designed by yours truly. Char! I call this area a piano/reading corner. I’m not really sure of the interior-design but one thing is for sure, I copied it from an ad that sells furniture, hehe! So there you know that I have an inspiration, I just imitated it from other designer whoever she/he is, thank you for the idea.
My eldest daughter told me that her next instrument she wants to learn is the guitar. I’m happy that she has an interest on this instrument because all my life I have been wanting to learn this guitar but no luck, no chance, no time, no nothing. But for my daughter she has all the opportunities as long as she wants. I hope though that she’ll not show interest on upright bass at Guitar Center because it’s crazy expensive!
Today, she just called her new piano teacher to set her schedule beginning this week. She’s ready for her next level on piano. New piano books, new location, new learning , new songs. I hope you’ll use your talents someday in the ministry. And yes please be a piano teacher at home too.
Before I’ll leave this blog for two weeks, I just want to share my excitement! I’ll be leaving for a SpringBreak vacation with the whole Family. How cool is that? Going to Hawaii is such a blessing. I can’t wait to see the triplets ( my sis’ babies), to hangout with my sis, and of course to see the beauty of paradise for the 3rd time. Those inviting beaches are waiting for me/us. I had to delay my monthly period for this vacation, haha! I’m so glad I can manipulate my period for this purpose. How? Don’t stop taking pills. How simple is that? Yes, I decided not to have period this month.
Preparing for this 2-week vacation was really fun. Shopping here and there for me and kids to wear. You know me, if photoshoot is concerned, I don’t want to duplicate what I have already worn in the past except the cover-up, hehe! I like that VS cover that I bought last year. I had to rip my abs for the last three months although I have no plan to show my bod in that badass beach! LOL! I searched and looked for an inspiration on what to wear everyday, hehe! I can’t help it, I love fashion, one of my happiness I guess but I see to it that I don’t spend too much. Vacationing is not always happening so to go on shopping once in awhile is just a gift for myself. Did I mention that I also plan for my kids on what to wear and what not? Hehe! But I make sure that they also like what they are wearing this coming springbreak.
Photos will be posted on Facebook and Instagram . Our vacation starts on Tuesday March 26, and ends on Tuesday April 9.
Do you have a small business? If you do, good luck in your business. When you have your own business, you should know the tricks on how to run it properly , otherwise you’ll say goodbye to the small business right away. Our family business ( Landscaping) was owned by the husband since 1999. Luckily, up to this moment, it is still in good shape.
Since I became my husband’s wife, he taught me how to do the office work such as the bookkeeping, invoicing, banking and many more. I never thought in my life to be part in the business but I’m glad I’ve learned the do’s and don’t's in business. It is pretty much busy everyday doing some business errands but the busiest time I spend in the office is during tax time.
Anyone can be a financial officer but if you happen to live in North Carolina , and want to have a professional to see your business financial standing, why don’t you contact raleigh nc accountant ? They could help you in many ways like setting up your financial system, bookkeeping as well as tax preparation.
It’s time to post an image on this blog to make it more boring. I know that my blog is a bit boring lately but I really don’t care. What can I do if I’m boring. Actually, one visitor clicked the “sucks” button but one thing is for sure, that visitor is a loser. No matter what she’ll do in life, she’ll always be a loser. Mark my word loser. Hehehe!
This photo of me is entitled “Happy, always happy, happy to be me”.. and that loser will still click the “sucks” button .. and I know why, that person “is and was” not happy in her life. Poor her. Don’t you agree?
When I was a young-teen, I used to play tambourine in our church. I enrolled one summer just to learn the proper way of using it. There are many ways how to hold it together with corresponding dance steps. It was really fun to remember those days. We called our group tambourine dancers.
Tambourine is not just tapping with your hands but also using fingers or thumb to create different sound , shaking-tapping combo, as well as the graceful moves of the hands. A good instrument to try out these days.
