I was very happy that my dear husband made up his mind to replace the old Bissell vacuum cleaner. He bought it 10 years ago and replacing parts costs more. So he let me pick a new vacuum cleaner. It took me a little while to decide which one to buy because there were so many good ones to choose from.
Buying an expensive with high quality performance vacuum cleaner is somehow an investment, I stayed at the average item cost. I didn’t want to spend more than $300. I only spent around $99 for our new Hoover WindTunnel Series Upright Bagless vacuum cleaner. It’s been with us for months now and I don’t have any complain so far.
Windtunnel technology for amazing suction performance.
Includes extension wand, crevice tool, upholstery/dusting brush, and powered hand tool.
Power cord rewind.
Quite heavy for a petite person like me who weighs 95 lbs. 🙂
What I really love about it is the power cord rewind. I don’t have to coil it every time. The filter is easy to clean since you can just rinse it with water and dry it overnight or 24 hours. Vacuum cleaner are really a big help in cleaning especially if you have a carpeted home or if you have furry pets. I would recommend Hoover WindTunnel Series Upright Bagless vacuum cleaner. You can buy this product at your favorite home store and in department stores or online. This can be a great gift item to yourself or to someone. 🙂
Learning to drive can be a scary process for both you and your teen, especially if it is their first time behind the wheel. You might be used to the ins and outs of regular driving, but they will not have had your experience. It is important to stay calm and guide them as best you can. It might also be useful to brush up on your knowledge of road rules, just to make sure you aren’t giving out the wrong advice. If you’re still nervous at the prospect of supervising your teen’s first foray on the road, here are some things you should keep in mind.
It may have been a while since you’ve read the latest road rules and some things may have changed. They can sometimes be difficult to find and may vary from state to state, so make sure you double check before you launch yourself into a mountain of reading. You don’t want to be giving your teen the wrong advice, so if you think you might need to brush up on some of your traffic knowledge, visit blog post at GC Traffic Lawyers for a quick refresher.
Communication is one of the most important things to keep in mind when you are teaching someone to drive. Your student will most likely be more concerned than you are about making a mistake, so it is your job to make sure they feel as comfortable as possible. Do not yell, regardless of how tempting it might be to do so. Instead, provide helpful advice and constructive criticism so they can learn from their mistakes.
Starting off with simple, straight roads is a good way to get your teen’s confidence up. Learning to drive is just like learning any other new skill – start off simple, before progressing to more difficult maneuvers. Being able to do small things step by step will also be able to give them a little sense of achievement that can often go a long way.
Most of all, be patient with your teen. Raising your voice or being impatient with the speed at which they are driving or learning new skills will just stress them out even further, and the last thing you want is a stressed teenage driver. Your patience will definitely pay off eventually, so just keep that in mind. The prospect of your teenager being on the road may be frightening, but if you can provide them the proper support and guidance, you shouldn’t be too worried. These are just some things you may want to consider if you are teaching your teenager how to drive, but also remember to tailor your approach to your child’s temperament. Good luck!

K: “We have to start writing my Christmas List, Mom.”
This was K told me while I was eating my supper last night. She was watching Peppa Pig on television around 8:00 P.M. last night and a commercial of some children’s toys showed up which reminded her of the ones she wants for Christmas. I like watching some kids’ shows and cartoons but what I dislike is too much commercials about toys and nonsense things.
K, who is turning 5 in the next few weeks, is actually interested more on her Christmas Wishlist than what she wants for her birthday. In fact, she only wanted to go to Kid Mania in Plano. It is a big play area and arcade games for kids. The very first time we were there was on a birthday of one of my girl friend’s daughter two years ago. K wants to go back there. Okay, so I have to call Kid Mania about their party reservation and stuff.
Anyway, now K has a few things listed in her Christmas List. I told her that there is no assurance that she will get all of them because Santa will consider what she wishes for the most.
How about your kid/kids? Have they started writing down their Christmas Wishlists?

Oh it was a happy day for AC, K, and Lexi. Because it’s AC’s 5th birthday! My cousin Em wasn’t planning to hold the birthday party at her home. But with the help of our dear friends, AC’s birthday party was a successful. The little girls had a fun.
K was very excited to help AC open her birthday presents. 🙂 A few of her gifts are:

Kids’ birthday parties doesn’t have to be extravagant to make them happy on their special day. A small simple celebration at home can be satisfying and enjoyable even if it’s the last minute planning. Thanks to our dear close friends who came and helped Emz. Here are few tips how to make the small birthday celebration at home memorable and fun.
- Order the cake and cupcakes from your favorite grocery store like Tom Thumb, Kroger, or Walmart. They can make the cake available the next day.
- If the schedule is hectic, invite close friends three days in advance for a potluck birthday party and ask their help if they can bring food. It’s proven on our end.
- A small crowd of guests also makes a difference. Too much crowd can bring stress to the little ones.
- Birthday party games are optional. At AC’s party, we didn’t have any party games. We just let our kids play in the living room while the grown ups were busy chatting and stuff. 🙂
As with the food and drinks, below are a few suggestions what to bring to the potluck party.
- Mixed vegetables stew
- Pork or beef stew
- Cooked rice
- Green salad
- Pansit (rice sticks noodles)
- Assorted fruits
- Roasted chicken
- Soda, juice, and water
