I am fond of collecting things and one of those I religiously collect are scented candles. I have soy wax scented candles and those with aroma therapy essential oils. I especially like the bright colored ones compared to other colored scented candles. I recently bought a baies candle by diptyque, a leading manufacturer of scented candles sold all over the world. Baies is a blend of blackcurrant and Bulgarian rose. The smell is so good that I light it almost all the time. It certainly helps calm my nerves when I am feeling stressed and lightens any room in the house literally and figuratively.
The family day was a huge success, according to my own standards. The dance was a success too, except that towards the end, I was dancing while holding Maxyn because she thought I was missing! LOL.
I was probably one of the busiest during that event as I explain each game to the players. Then there was the dance. And my own children to take care of. After explaining about three games, my throat is already aching. In fact, as I write this, I feel like scratching my throat. I feel like something is stuck to it.
So here are a few tips to prevent sore throat.
- Drink often. Keep a bottle of water handy. If you can drink water that is at room temperature, the better.
- Do not talk much, specially when there is no need. I think this is a major problem for me because I am very very talkative.
- Use a microphone when talking to a large number of people. In this way, you do not need to shout and you will not force your throat and voice box.
- If you feel that your throat is already aching and itchy, gargle with antiseptic liquid that works for you. If you do not have any, warm water with salt works wonders.
- Rest and stop talking.
How are you doing ladies and gents?
July was a very very god month for me and my family, except for the unfortunate event that we went through a couple of weeks ago. But as I mentioned, I am moving on. I know Ninang is now very happy where she is. And what do you know, we only have five months left and it is Christmas time again!
My life has been pretty hectic since last weekend. I spent a whole day with my mommy friends last Saturday. We indulged ourselves with authentic Chinese food in Binondo, shopped, and talked almost non-stop. By Sunday, I spent quality time with my girls while the hubby played airsoft. I looked after the two girls while they tire themselves in this playplace at a nearby mall. We were there for three hours. Of course, I got tired too because I was the one chasing Maxyn wherever she goes. Come Monday, classes were suspended due to heavy rains from Sunday evening. I and another mom from Alex’s school took that chance to buy the things we will be using for the family day this Saturday. Then yesterday and today, we practiced the dance we will present for the family day as well. Yes, this momma danced again! Woot woot!
I am toxic. I am tired. But I still have my girls and hubby to attend to after a tiring day and I cannot simply ignore them. This is where women’s vitamins come into action. Vitamin supplements give us the extra energy we need. When we are lost, certain vitamins can help us find our balance again. When we are stressed out, we can take supplements that will help us relax and prevent hormonal imbalances. Aside from these, taking vitamins prevents us from getting sick, therefore allowing ourselves be on top of everything that we do.
So if you are not taking vitamins now, you now know what to do.
