Keeping Warm with Snuggies for Kids

It is still not yet that cold here in our place but I'm expecting that it will still get a little colder.  It would really be great if we could keep warm by not having to wear those very thick sweaters or jackets at home.  We could use the heater all the time, but just think about the electric bill.

Sometimes, my kids wear double or triple layers of clothes instead. I saw this picture of a kid comfortably wearing  a snuggie (a long blanket with sleeves)  while reading and it reminded me of my son who was trying to study yesterday. He complained to me that he was feeling cold and feels distracted.

It would be great if I could buy snuggies for my kids.(I've seen wonderful colors and designs available online which are reasonably priced.) While at home they could warmly and comfortably wear that even while doing anything: reading, writing, playing or watching TV. Even though we have cozy blankets for them while they sleep, I bet these snuggies would work better with them. It would keep them covered all the time since they have it on unlike the blanket which gets thrown off them when they move or make a turn while sleeping.

I think I would also like these snuggies. I could work on my snuggies while housekeeping or when doing my blogging or freelance work on the computer everyday - a sure way to keep me fired up whatever it is I'm up to.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
