It's just Tuesday, the second day of school week, but it seems like pulling the-rope-the-hard way for me.Maybe because, its the last month of the semester and i cant help thinking about examinations, papers to check, making reports and grades...etc..etc...etc...Things that has to be done in due time.Well, its not new to me since a Teacher by profession like me should do that.

I'm just grateful enough i haven't been in the mood swing..LOL..i can still smile while teaching...trully its tiresome but I thank HIM for the strength in each day.I'm deeply excited for next months call for celebrationssssssss.....

MOthers Day and Pregnant Women....Do We Qualify

I have been having an ongoing discussion with a friend about Mothers’ day. Since Mothers' Day is celebrated here inThailand this month. Also in honor of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit. on her birthday.

I told her that even though I haven’t had her yet I think I still qualify! She says Mothers’ day is ONLY for women who already have children and that since she isn’t born yet...I don’t get anything.

I would like to say that I strongly disagree with her on this! I still consider myself a mother even though she isn’t here just yet. Our child will be with us soon in Gods’ time. I’m still taking care of her while she is inside my body.(by GODs’ grace) And I’ve given her a safe place to live free of charge for the past 7 months!! LOL.

I told her that I’m not demanding a present (but that would be nice) since Mothers’ Day celebration falls on the day after my birthday. heheheh. But she could at least get me a Mother’s day card or a Birthday Card.

What do you all think?

Help them...

I wanted to help my second graders.Examine what they could do to be good readers, listeners and writers, be always motivated to study English.I had taught each one of the skills individually.Oh!MY!not that easy!The children don't have a concrete representation of each thing they could do to help themselves.I learned that the more we see something the more likely it may actually sink in.
I wish someone had told me then that knowing my students was as important as knowing my subject.

Health Benefits of Kissing

Kissing Is...

One of the easiest ways to express affection and say I love you. Kissing is a universal language that requires no translation to glean it's message. Kissing has amazing health benefits. Best Kisses is a unique kissing photo website promoting the power of love one kiss at a time

"A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes out the years." Rupert Burke

The Top 10 Health Benefits of Kissing...

Have been documented in medical studies offering amazing advantages for a long and healthy life.

  1. Those who kiss their partner goodbye each morning live five years longer than those who don’t.
  2. Kissing is great for self-esteem. It makes you feel appreciated and helps your state of mind.
  3. Kissing burns calories, 2-3 calories a minute and can double your metabolic rate. Research claims that three passionate kisses a day (at least lasting 20 seconds each) will cause you to loose an entire extra pound! It's time to start that kissing diet!
  4. Kissing is a known stress-reliever. Passionate kissing relieves tension, reduces negative energy and produces a sense of well being, lowering your cortisol ‘stress’ hormone.
  5. Kissing uses 30 facial muscles and it helps keep the facial muscles tight, preventing baggy cheeks! The tension in the muscles caused by a passionate kiss helps smooth the skin and increases the circulation.
  6. Kissing is good for the heart, as it creates an adrenaline which causes your heart to pump more blood around your body. Frequent kissing has scientifically been proven to stabilize cardiovascular activity, decrease blood pressure and cholesterol.
  7. Those who kiss quite frequently are less likely to suffer from stomach, bladder and blood infections.
  8. During a kiss, natural antibiotics are secreted in the saliva. Also, the saliva contains a type of anesthetic that helps relieve pain.
  9. Kissing reduces anxiety and stops the 'noise' in your mind. It increases the levels of oxytocin, an extremely calming hormone that produces a feeling of peace.
  10. The endorphins produced by kissing are 200 times more powerful than morphine. [source]

Get to know me more..

my sis- in- law tag me with this interesting test...

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship.

The seriousness of your love:

You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

Your views on education

You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:

You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:

You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

..its been a while since the last time I dropped my thoughts in sister-in-law pushing me to post new ones...I’ve spent all day trying to wrap my head around a story to tell...(not mentioning i had much these days)

..should i say now i'm experiencing the joy of being Pregnant..cuz by GOD's mighty grace, I really am.A frequent trips to toillet any time of the day,(especially early morning)a feeling of hungryness always,(that i have to wake my husband up in the middle of the night to cook something for me)dizziness, tiredness most of the time,(not to mention how i slept over my table at school every after my meals)means a lot to me and for my husband who have been from the start, gives out all his support for me and our baby..but i'm quite blessed to say i'm not always throwing ups as what most every pregnant woman of their first 2 months have. i still enjoy the food that my husband Ben prepared..

i looked upon the side of the pregnant glow. The lustrous hair. And all of the other benefits that can come with carrying a baby..I’m thrilled about bringing a baby into the world, and I know that I am blessed to be able to procreate.Thanks GOD for our baby..

Today the sun was shinning so hot early in the morning that I didn’t notice that its still 6 o’clock in the morning…it’s like pulling-the rope-the hard way day for me since I just recovered from a terrible headache and fever…Last Monday was so tiring for me…the school needs to promote English so we all need to packed and make-all-the preparation for that day…staying fresh and energetic was all we need to enhance and motivate the students and the said activities…but it doesn’t stay that long…at the middle of the day,my eyes getting blurred and I felt the heat of the sun piercing inside the pores of my skin and every strands of my hair.….i cant hold it any longer….i need a good sit so I could take a deep and good breath…the students were there around me…(as it used to be)..Waiting for me…I tried to tell them to not going any closer so I could feel some air..i’m tryin’ to hide the feelings…I want to smile….relax….I closed my eyes and begin imagining the beautiful things that had happened to me few days ago…it came to my thoughts that if I stay calm and easy…charming and great in perspective…I can be make the best out of every situation…I believed I can…

..tales out of school...
We had been having trouble ‘getting organized” in the morning. The children come into the classroom at 9.20 the bell rings at 9.30. a couple of mornings a week we have a special classes at 9.35 or 9.45.We weren’t ready to go. I was feeling “frazzled”. The kids weren’t responding by moving more quickly. The end of the day had some similarities. They got very chatty as we began preparing for departure. Kids were missing some things…I wanted them to take home or bring back..etc…I’m just not enjoying the beginning of the day and the end of the day. It’s like having a great sandwich and the bread keeps falling off. The pieces of bread that hold our day together are the beginning and the end. Then I talked through the possibilities that maybe I was expecting them to do too much….maybe we need to do something else, maybe have no talking until everybody settled in, maybe at the end of the day I need to allow more time for them and for me…especially…I stretches my legs and try to stomp life back into the frozen feet….i know I can…I just count….everything as a blessing from GOD oddly wrap…I just cared much…..

Writing and performing arts are generally no-go areas for me. I sometimes need a good kick on the backside. I can’t accept things too easily no matter what and who persuades me. My quests caused me some doubts and difficulties to unlocked the secrets within me. Like most people who love to write, I had lounged in illusion that only the ignorant had to look things up. I’m anxious, in my mind, writing was about knowing exactly what you had to say and being sharp about it. It was about production, not mere talk and certainly not excuses. I once told that to write a sentence with a mismatched noun and verb was literary equivalent of going on stage with your fly open….In the past few days the weather had changed abruptly and so with my views of blogging…Is blogging really an issue? It was a matter of getting into the warmth of my sleeping bags and zipping up as quickly as possible just to put these words that had been with me in my sleeping bags for thousands of years…huh!!!The starts were even more important for me to get a move-on I am…I ‘ve got some…. And I found pleasure and I’m beginning to appreciate. I knew, in my heart, I count…I care….and I can….
