Last will and testament

With all the talks about Michael Jackson’s will, you are given the chance to realize that a last will and testament is very important. Regardless of how little you have, you need to be able to clearly define to whom it will be given once you are gone. It is better to be prepared for any eventuality so that the ones you will leave behind won’t have a hard time determining which is which and to whom it will be. Or worst, fight for the biggest chunk they can get from your estate.

This talk about a last will reminded me of a neighbor’s large family that he left behind. His children fought like dogs out for a large bone once he was buried. They were fighting for the house. It was determined later on that he left a last will stating that his house will be subdivided between his children and that should they continue to fight for sole possession of the house, it will be turned over to a relative that took care of him while he’s sick. That settled the issue.

Lesson learned: It doesn’t matter when you will die, or how much you will leave behind. Make sure you have a last will and testament that you will leave that clearly defines the division of your estate.

Rainy Friday

It’s the end of another day for me. My day ends before 6AM everyday. I work at odd hours and have found myself to be productive during these times. I was able to drop EC and do some posts. I am still wide awake, my sisters are listening to the radio regarding suspension of classes. Both teachers are going to school today.

I wonder why our weather bureau and the Department of Education can’t decide right away whether to suspend classes or not. The PAGASA can’t even predict the weather accurately! What kind of weather equipments are this government agency’s using?!? Today, June 5, 2009, all elementary and high school classes in the NCR are suspended, both public and private. DepEd made the announcement at 5:20AM! I hope the kids are still at home and have heard the announcement by now. Heavy rains will pour around 8AM according to PAGASA.

Be careful everyone! Happy rainy Friday! :)

Costly education

I just got the assessment form for my brother’s first semester in second year college. Can you guess how big my eyes became when I saw the tuition fees? Yes, that big! Only one thing crossed my mind while I was looking at the total amount I need to pay… if not for the state colleges, I wonder how parents earning a minimum salary can send their children to college. It would be really hard.

Times are tough and it becomes tougher each day. I hope every kid out there are already enrolled and ready to go back to school come June 1st.

For all of us…

We may not be mothers yet but in some way, we have been mothers to someone in our lives…
You might be a man but have been both a father and mother to your kids…
Moms, your children might be grown-ups now but rest assured that you are still their mom and they need you no matter what they say…
You may never know this, my dear mommy-blogger friends, but you’ve been a mom to me one way or another…

Tomorrow is a day for all of us. myspace graphic comments

A Happy and Blessed 2008 Everyone!

I wish everyone will have a bountiful year ahead :)

I know you have noticed I have been away for days now. I am currently enjoying some ‘vacation’ time and will be fully back by January 7, 2008. I will make it up to everyone by then.

God bless everyone! Have a safe New Year’s Eve celebration!


I hate it when friends abuse my kindness!

I lent a friend some money back in July. I wouldn’t have lent him some if he really didn’t need it. I also trusted him not to double cross me. Boy was I wrong! Almost 6 months down the road, here I am, begging him to at least leave me a message on YM. I have left messages on his YM accounts, Gmail, Friendster and even texted him even if his cellphone number is always out of reach. All messages asking him to at least tell me if he can already pay me or he still needs more time. I was polite at first thinking maybe he has not gone online for a few days now and his cellphone was pawned to get money for his kids and all. I am creating scenarios in my head so as to avoid thinking that he has no more desire to pay me. And then I saw his Friendster account a few minutes ago. It says that his last log in was 24 hours ago. Tapos dedma??? WTF?!?!@#$!%

I left him an angry message telling him to give me some respect because I did not just picked up that money out of nowhere. Of all my friends…

Another friend is asking for some financial help. She might not pull something like this on me but I don’t know. I have a soft heart for people undergoing financial problems because I’ve been there so many times I know the feeling of drowning in a sea of debts. That’s why I help relatives and friends. I always keep in mind that when I was in that situation, I hardly had someone I can run to for some financial help. And now that I can do my share of helping, I want to at least give back the kindness I received from others before.

But with this situation, I don’t know if I will lend money to friends again.

I am really pissed right now!
