We had a great Easter weekend. Darling daughter and I attended the Easter Egg Hunt in town. What’s more exciting is that my cousin, and a friend came with their kids.
There was face painting, bounce house, photo with the Bunny, arts and crafts, and FREE breakfast. Yes, you heard it right. Free breakfast tacos and drinks. Thanks to the generous people who make this special event possible every year. We are also grateful to those who donated some Easter eggs filled with special goodies.
It was a very fun and filling day because, after the Egg Hunt at the city hall that morning, the church across the road also hosted the same with FREE lunch–hamburger and hotdogs and drinks. The kids had a blast! Hopefully, more children will come next year.
Easter Sunday morning we went to the worship service. Then we had lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. We went grocery shopping after and relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. We didn’t have school Monday because it was a Bad Weather Make Up Day. Texas didn’t get a winter storm last year so it was our day off Monday. Woohoo!
We have been having car problems in the past and they were troublesome in our daily travels. My husband’s old vehicle had a brake problem and he had to take it to the auto repair shop right away. I was expecting at that time and we couldn’t afford to miss doctor’s visits.
Having an auto repair shop nearby was very convenient for us and everyone in the community. It was fully-equipped with mechanical equipment needed for fast and reliable repairs. Plus, the people working in the shop were friendly and trustworthy. The service fees were very reasonable.
As per the auto equipment, there is nothing more amazing than car lifts. The auto work is done way faster and easier because of these innovative equipment. Just imagine how heavy a car is and, in a few minutes, your car is lifted just like that! Very cool!
Car lifts are not only needed in auto repair shops. They can also be bought for your own vehicle’s use. Let us say you own multiple vehicles or an RV. You may want to buy a medium-height car lift for your convenience. Maintaining a vehicle is tedious job and an auto lift equipment is such a big help. You can check out dealers like Best Buy Auto Equipment selections according to your needs.
It is very important we keep track with our vehicles repair and maintenance schedules. Let us not disregard what our car is telling us. Sometimes we ignore the signs.
I know you are one of the parents who are excited and couldn’t wait for the Spring Break to come. Yes it is getting hear. Actually, in our district, Spring Break is next week starts on March 11th. Hopefully the weather next week is ideal for outdoor activities so we can enjoy going to the parks or any attractions in and around Dallas-Fort Worth.
My darling daughter wants to go to the zoo and the botanical gardens next week. Like I said, I hope the weather would be fine next week because I am pretty sure the zoo will be crowded as usual. Like last year’s Spring Break, we are just going to do stay-cation this year. We went to the zoo and botanical gardens and looks like we are going do that again.
Do you have any travel plans on Spring Break this year? Where are you going? Thanks for sharing.
Oh dear! Darling daughter has the flu. I took her to her pediatrician yesterday afternoon because she’s running fever for two days and was feeling weak. Her appetite was poor and all she wanted to do is sleep. She said she’s tired.
Good thing her doctor was able to see DD on Tuesday. I was very worried. No sleep the night before because I was monitoring her temperature.
Around 3 o’clock Monday morning I woke up needing to go and I felt DD’s hand on my arm feeling hot. I immediately checked her temperature that moment. The reading was 100.1 F. I kept her home, of course. She was throwing up that morning I was so worried. Good thing there’s no diarrhea. DD was complaining of a headache so I gave her pain reliever/fever reducer medicine that day. I was monitoring her fever overnight as well.
The fever didn’t subside so I called the pediatrician’s office for an appointment. We were able to see the doctor in the afternoon, thank goodness. Strep and flu tests were conducted–the strep test came back negative but the flu came back positive. Immediately her doctor prescribed medicine to take for five days. DD is coughing but her lungs sounds perfect. She recommends lots of rest for the rest of the week.
As of today, my darling daughter is feeling a little okay. No fever overnight after taking the medication. Also, I am very glad that her appetite is back.
It is very hard when our children gets sick. We worry so much. But we should not panic. Call and see your health provider.
If you are lucky enough to have one or more babies in your family right now, you may be thinking about what you will get them for the holidays. After all, the holiday shopping season is fast approaching, and many people like to get all of their shopping done as early as possible to save themselves money and stress. Babies are one of life’s greatest delights, but the truth is that they can be hard to shop for, especially when they are very young. If you’re not sure how to shop for the littlest ones in your life, here are a few tips to help you get started.
The first thing to think about when you’re shopping for a holiday gift for a baby in your life is their parents. After all, the parents are the ones who will actually be opening the gift and they are the ones whose tastes really matter. If you want to be a hit with the parents, pick something for their baby that fits with their opinions and styles. For example, a Seahawks onesie would be perfect for sports fans from Seattle, or a little superhero shirt would be great for a fan of comic books.
Next, think about the baby and what he or she would enjoy. Of course, you can’t know any particular baby’s real tastes, and babies change every day, but use common sense to pick some appropriate. Don’t buy anything that a baby can’t safely play with, which means that it must be safe enough to put in their mouth. Choose something soft and snugly to make sure that a baby will want to hold it close and touch it often. Pick something bright and colorful to get his or her attention and delight.
Finally, don’t stress about it. The most important gift that you can give to any baby in your life is the gift of time. Take some time this holiday season to spend with all the little ones that you love.
