December 22, 2008 Pearl 3

Faye had her first holy communion last December 11. I really like the way her school organizes events like this. They never fail to impress me in terms of preserving the solemnity of the occasion.

So busy!

December 10, 2008 Pearl 0

I’m soooo busy! I couldn’t find the time to update this blog. A lot of things are going on, and I didn’t even find the time to finalize my blog giveaway as I mentioned in my previous post. My birthday has come and gone last Monday, today is my daughter’s birthday, and my husband’s birthday will be on Sunday. My birthday was a working day for me, I wasn’t able to file a leave because we had a conference on that day — and it was a really busy day for me! — i didn’t even find the time to Read More
