Writing her ABCs

I found Lil' C writing on her easel the other day.

And this is what she was writing. Her ABCs! She did really good except for the a couple of alphabets. Look at the ones I circled in red. Her J & S are written backwards. :) Initially she had the same problem with D & P but she finally figured them out. I guess she still have not quite figured out J & S.

Gold coins for me, please?

Nowadays US dollars seem to be declining every day. Initially I wasn’t too bothered by it but I really felt the impact when I went shopping in Canada recently. My USD didn’t go as far as it previously did. I think maybe it’s time for me to buy some gold coins from MONEX for investment instead. After all, gold has proven to be a way to preserve one’s purchasing power. Their value is not directly dependable on the falling US dollars and since it is universally acceptable, it can be traded throughout the world. If you want to buy gold coins like me, do check out Monex, America’s leading gold and precious metals investment leader for over 40 years.

The party's over

We had Lil' C's birthday party at our house on Sun. It was just a small one with just a few of her friends.

She loved her princess cake! See here for more details on the cake

The highlight of the party was the pinata. The kids loved whacking the pinata.

Since they are all 2-3 years old, they didn't have the strength to whack the pinata apart. Luckily there's a string attached that can be pulled to release all the goodies inside. Here's all the little hands grabbing the treasures that came out of the pinata. :)

So now the party's over and I have a 3 year old now. Does that mean no more terrible 2s??? hehe.....

Lost your tooth filling?

I remember 2 years ago, when I was eating bread one day, I felt something grainy in my mouth. I quickly spat it out thinking that it was something yucky in my bread. To my horror, I realized it was actually my tooth filling! Somehow, the filling came off my tooth. I was really surprised because I always thought that fillings are supposed to last a very long time.

Anyway, I tried to make an appointment with my dentist but I had to wait two days for an open appointment. For those 2 days, luckily it was not painful but it was definitely uncomfortable especially when I try to eat. I wished that I had known about Dentemp OS, and then maybe I wouldn’t have encountered difficulty eating for those 2 days.

Dentemp OS is an FDA approved over-the-counter dental cement that is the perfect dental first-aid for replacing lost fillings and temporarily cementing loose caps. It provides fast and temporary relief of pain and discomfort.

Applying Dentemp OS is easy. All you have to do is remove it from its plastic vial and it’s ready to use. Dentemp OS can be used more that 6 times. The best part is that the entire process of applying Dentemp OS till the time it takes effect, it only takes 60 minutes. That means I could have avoided 1 day and 23 hours of discomfort!!

If you have lost fillings or loose caps, avoid pain and discomfort by using Dentemp OS as a temporary dental repair while waiting to see your dentist.

Do you have a stained garage floor?

The other day I found a huge oil stain on my garage floor. It turned out that my car was leaking a little oil. So we had to send the car for repairs. Now the car has been fixed but there is still an ugly oil stain on the concrete of my garage floor. I can’t seem to clean it off. Maybe I should install garage floor tiles to cover the stain. What about your garage floors? Are there stains all over them too? Then check out for your garage floor makeover.

Princess C

This year my neighbor had a costume party for Halloween. Usually we don't celebrate Halloween so this is the first year that Lil' C got to wear a costume. But this cheapo mommy didn't want to spend money on a costume that can only be worn once so we ended up getting this Princess dress-up outfit from Costco. It was a really good deal. There were 3 princess costumes and it all comes in a dress-up box. Since Lil' C is in her Princess stage and loves dress-up anyway, it works out great. She gets to dress up as a princess everyday now!! :)

iFloor's new $1 Million warranty

Have you always wanted to buy flooring online but have never done so? Is it because you have heard horror stories about the growing number of warranty claims being denied for online buyers by the manufacturers? Well, worry no more because iFLOOR is offering $1,000,000 of warranty protection for online purchases. This warranty is free and is an add-on to their regular product warranty

Read more about this latest announcement from a recent press release:
iFLOOR, America's largest online flooring retailer, today announced a $1,000,000 limited warranty designed to protect its customers from predatory manufacturer policies that exclude warranty coverage from online purchases.

The policy, which goes into effect immediately, offers up to one million dollars of coverage in the event that a customer's warranty claim is denied specifically because they made their purchase online. It is complimentary for every iFLOOR customer, and protects the buyer under the same terms as the original product warranty.

iFLOOR, Inc. CEO, Steve Simonson, came up with the program to combat "scare tactics" used by manufacturers of hardwood floors and laminate flooring. "Their idea is to discourage you from buying at a discount!" wrote Simonson in his blog "It's About Flooring". "This is not right! You deserve to save money! So we're going to take care of this problem once and for all."

And it would appear that federal law is on his side. Section 108 of the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Act, states that, "In general, tie-in sales provisions are not allowed. Such a provision would require a purchaser of the warranted product to buy an item or service from a particular company to use with the warranted product in order to be eligible to receive a remedy under the warranty."

Under iFLOOR's new warranty, a key provision allows for iFLOOR to "seek justice" on behalf of the customer in the event of legal action. According to Simonson, "I'm putting iFLOOR's money where my mouth is."

About iFLOOR, Inc.
Since 1998, has been the leading online and retail flooring company, with 36 local retail stores nationwide offering more than 70,000 products, including hardwood floors, laminate flooring, bamboo flooring and cork floors. is the largest online flooring retailer according to Internet Retailer Magazine, and was named by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States for the past three years. Committed to quality customer service, superior selection and friendly expert advice, enables customers to buy flooring both online and in its retail stores at a substantial savings over traditional retailers.

Diaperless at night - Part 2

Continuing from the previous post, it's now day 4 and so far there's only been 1 accident. So it's looking good. Yay!! At this rate, I don't think I have to buy anymore diapers. I still have a few diapers left for emergency purpose. Since we were running low on stock, I almost bought a box from Costco last week but luckily I didn't otherwise I would have been stuck with 150 diapers!
