2016 Planner | Mom 24/7 by Mommy Mundo

I’m a planner kind of person – planners that you actually scribble notes on ha, not the digital ones that come installed with phones. For my 2016 planner, I am super excited to have the Mom 24/7 Planner from Mommy Mundo!

My planner in 2015 and the year(s) prior were all of the generic kind from National Bookstore. With the surge of planners into the market in recent years (hello, Starbucks planners, Moleskine planners, etc), I feel that planner designers seem to have overdone it by putting in so many features and sections.  Continue reading 2016 Planner | Mom 24/7 by Mommy Mundo

I’m back!

Wow! It’s still Christmas here??! 😛

I can’t believe how this year’s first quarter just zoomed by! And how I have totally neglected this blog.

Work is what got in the way.

Work-from-home perks: working in pajamas and in the company of Parker 😀

I am thankful, though, for being blessed with a home-based job. In the past 5 months, I realized how lucky stay-at-home moms are today, because they have opportunities that were not available 10 years ago. I’m talking about online jobs that run the gamut from writing, blogging, managing social networks, customer service, and virtual assistants. Home-based jobs are ideal for moms like me who have kids and a home to take care of, but still want to keep a job. I will blog (fingers crossed!) about this on another day.

Anyway, I’m so back. I wanted to renew my commitment to blogging because it’s this blog, after all, that has led to a lot of opportunities for me. And I miss blogging! I miss sharing with you my inanities and randomness. I miss going to events! Hopefully I’d be able to manage my time better and update this blog at least once a week.

I want to send a special shout-out to those who have been visiting and leaving comments despite the obvious inactivity around here. Thank you! 🙂

Why hello there, blog! (v. 5.4.1)

It’s a chilly December morning in Metro Manila, and I am loving every moment of it… Oh yeah, I have a blog! Lemme check on it…

For the __nth time, I’ve totally neglected my blog. Boohoo.

So I am finding this time to do a quickie. (Hmm, not my favorite term, by the way. 😀 Do a quick search and you will find only one other post with “quickie” in it hehe.)

I honestly have not even visited my own blog in weeks! I was expecting it to be dead in terms of traffic. But wow, thank you, readers for keeping my blog traffic alive!

There aren’t new blog posts, but if you could click on the “Archives” and “Categories” here to the right —->, you’ll find that there are over 5 years’ worth –  5 years! – of blog entries. Well, yeah, some are just nonsense stories about my kids, others are recipes and food places you might find interesting.

So what’s been keeping me so busy? Yes, I am still tsupernanay (translation: chauffeur extraordinaire) to my kids. On top of that, I’ve taken on a really nice work-from-home job that I enjoy so much. Suffice it to say that I Tweet and Facebook (v.) for a living. Hmmm, not actually for my whole family’s “living” (that is husband’s job), but I get decent pay and love, love, love, love what I do!

Okay, I’ll end this post before it gets any more random.

And in case I disappear again into my work cave and forget to greet you, let me be the first to say:

Merry Christmas! Fill your hearts with love, joy and positivity. Enough with the hate and biatching- there’s too much of that already. 😛

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” ~Marianne Williamson

(I hope to be back though – I haven’t posted my wishlist yet!)

Home printing – laser vs. ink

What kind of printer do you use at home?

I have an HP laser printer-scanner-copier and I love it!

Though I rarely use the printer for printing, my kids often do for school projects and homework. Hub also brings home work from the office, and he’d sometimes need to scan, print or copy stuff. So I find my printer so handy and ideal.

I previously owned two Canon inkjet printers. Both conked out on me, specifically the printerheads. So I vowed never again to buy inkjet printers. I know manufacturers recommend using only original ink cartridges, but they’re too expensive and don’t go a long way. (So yeah, I was guilty of using ‘replacement’ ink, teehee.)

I’ve had my HP 3-in-1 printer for almost a year now; I’ve yet to change the toner cartridge. Though laser toner is more expensive, I find it more cost-effective than ink cartridges.

The 3-in-1 unit may have been more expensive, but it’s more cost-efficient in the long run.

I also think hp printers are more hardy than Canons. IMHO. 😀
