My sisters and I together with the little girl went to watch Catching Fire yesterday at SM City North Edsa. It was really, really good! Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark are both great actors! They made us cry over some of the scenes especially that touching speech they made to the District 11 fallen tributes. My sister R said we should see it again and I agreed! Maybe later next week we’d catch it again in Robinsons Magnolia cinema.
One thing about my family and I, we are easily pleased. A movie is enough reason for us to be excited for weekend to arrive. A trip to the mall is also a cause for excitement already. Bonding over movies, food, and coffee is more than enough for us.
I thank the good Lord we are easily pleased and overjoyed over the little things.

It is a very unusual move that the Garcia’s did. They sold their farm for a much bigger one. The unusual thing in all of it? They are moving their red barn from their old farm to the new one! It is a lot of hassles since they can easily build a new one in their much bigger farm but old Mr. Garcia said that old red barn of theirs has a sentimental value to him and the missus they wouldn’t want to be parted from it.
So their son searched for a site for a lowboy trailer which they can use for the move. They are given one month to take what they will from their old farm and then after that, the new owners will move in.
It’s a lot of work but everyone in the Garcia family are happy to move into a larger farm.

At the end of the day, we always go back to our family’s bosom. That’s what I keep on realizing each and every time I find myself in a funk of a bad way.
I was inexplicably annoyed about something. I couldn’t explain it to anybody because I also can’t explain it to myself. I don’t know what’s bugging me. There’s just something annoying I can’t put my finger on.
I told my sisters about this and you know what? Without even giving the details, they already knew and could understand what I was trying to tell them! They truly know me. They know what it is possibly that I was so annoyed about.
It’s good to have people who can understand you. That’s what family is there for.

When we were younger, my siblings and I, we didn’t have any choice but to stay at home even if we felt like bolting out the door. We didn’t have our own money then and we were under the rule of our parents.
Three girls of almost the same age… there’s bound to be cat fights. Pulling each others’ hairs, scratching each others’ skins, and pinching each other painfully. That’s how we solve our differences then. Now that we’re grown ups and we have our own money, whenever we feel like bolting out the door, we do it. It’s the best way to diffuse a tension-filled moment.
Then at night, we come home with cooler heads and common sense in place again.

If you find yourself short in cash and you don’t know where to get it, go back to your house and search for treasures within! I am not talking about gold, silver, gems or jewelries here. I am talking about DVDs, CDs and games that are just accumulating dust in their holders and boxes. Organize it and ask yourself if you are going to use it again. If you answer YES, then put it back to its holder and box. If you answer NO, make sure to gather it and mark it as “to be sold”! Because you can really sell your old DVDs, CDs and games for cash! For real! There is no need to look far and wide for something to earn cash from. I didn’t know this until a relative told me about it. It was just a random search on the net that he did and he was surprised to find so many ways to exchange old items for cash. But the one that really got his attention was the old DVDs, CDs and games. He has a lot of music CDs that he no longer listens to. All those CDs are in a box now waiting to be shipped and my relative’s wallet is ready to receive the cash.
So keep that in mind, people. If you are short in cash, don’t resort to loans right away. There might be treasures inside your home you are not aware of. Look closely and take stock of what you have at home. You will be surprised at how quick you can get cash in return for some of the items you are no longer using or in need of. That’s what I will do this weekend. I will double check all items here at home and see if I can make a quick cash out of some of it.

We should not feel embarrassed by our difficulties, only by our failure to grow anything beautiful from them.
- Alain de Botton
I’ve encountered a lot of difficulties in the past. Financially and emotionally. I remember a comment from Raquel in one of my posts about having so many worries these days. She’d take a financial problem anytime instead of an emotional problem. Or a physical one. She’s correct about that. I’d take a financial problem gladly as well if it means emotional, mental and physical problems will be far away from me and my family. It is much more easy to solve than the latter.
Our family has survived so many problems and I know that we will continue surviving the ones that will come. I just hope and pray that it won’t be as bad as the ones we’ve had before. And that we will be together as a family to drive away everything that will come our way.

If you ask me about the importance of family, I will tell you that it is foremost in my list of reasons to live. My family is the reason why I am working hard every single day. They are the reason why I strive to become a better person as I grow older. I come from a close-knit family in a neighborhood where there are several families like us.
About five years ago, our neighbor’s daughters moved to different countries, the three of them married to different nationalities. You know what? All three daughters, together with their husbands and children, would come home at least once a year to visit their folks. They are still as close as when they were living with together.
I admire families like that.

It’s hard for us to accept most of the challenges thrown at us by life. We instantly think that it’s unfair to us but what we fail to realize is that those challenges are given to us because it will teach us lessons and will strengthen our faith.
You might think it’s never ending but there’s an end to the challenges in our lives. Oh, another one will start but it, too, will end somehow.

Truth is that I dread home repairs. It costs so much that whenever there is something in the house that needs fixing, I would ask for at least a month if not that important, or a week at most if totally necessary. Just a recent renovation of the second floor of our house cost us an arm and leg. I can’t imagine the budget for repairing certain parts of the ground floor of the house.
I really hope my brother will learn how to DIY basic necessary home repairs so that we don’t have to pay for services whenever we need something fixed at home.
