Visiting The Folks Without Hubby Because He Is At Work

Well because me and my family cannot come over to see the folks in Tyler on Easter Sunday, my husband let me and my daughter go to see them yesterday and spend the night.  My mother-in-law will be busy in the coming weeks before she and dad can visit us on April 2oth.

It’s my very first time driving to Tyler without my husband with us because it’s a weekday.  I thought it would be nice to let our darling daughter see her grandparents, cousins, and aunt because we already have an early commitment on Easter Sunday.

Driving yesterday was not bad.  The roads were not busy at 1:00 in the afternoon.  I thought I will be having trouble with the traffic.  The only thing that concerned me was my little girl’s demands.  She wanted me to sit beside her, give her a hug, and asking for a toy or book that she dropped and I cannot reach.  So I have to be in a very calm voice so she won’t feel like I am upset or something.  But in the middle of my driving 75 MPH, I had to stop and pull over on  the shoulder because I noticed the open doors warning.  And when I checked, it’s the door at the backseat passenger where my daughter sits.  Arg!  She can reach it already.  I also double checked the car seat making sure that it’s not wiggly.  I have to be very extra attentive.  Usually, my little girl sleeps when where on the road.  But when she knows that we are going to grandma and grandpa’s house, she won’t even take a short nap because she’s excited.

We will just take it easy today.  What’s important is that, my little girl and the grandparents will have a wonderful time together.

Gadget Insurance

Like everything else, we want all the things in our lives to be safe and hassle-fee.  As we travel along the road of life, assurance of what great comfort in the future is what we are looking forward to.

Well, I am saying this because we always make things easy by insuring valuable things like our cars, homes, and our lives.  But how about the travel gadgets like the iPhone or iPad?  Since they have become the trend in electronic gadgets nowadays, we consider these devices as one of our valuable possessions.  Is there a way we can get a Gadget Insurance?  We can get these insured if we want to.  Hhmmm..I wonder how it works?

Who’s Fault Was It?

I was very excited about the dinner at Red Lobster.  Why?  Because I have a coupon for $10 which made me very happy.  Red Lobster is one of my favorite seafood restaurant.  The menu looks very interesting.  Though seafood meals are a little bit pricey, they’re delicious!

But this evening was a disappointment.  We know that the restaurant is always full on weekends.  We tried our best to arrive early so we can get a table without waiting forever.  It didn’t happen.  We waited for almost an hour.  Then my husband approached the receptionist and asked if they skipped us.  The girl said no.  Did we miss the flashing lights of the waiting device?  Maybe so.  Because my husband put it in his pocket.  So the dinner date was ruined!  That’s it.

I did not argue and kept silent.  I did not drive the car because my bad mood will affect my driving.  And that’s for sure.  My husband drove us to the buffet restaurant in McKinney.  We are traveling with a toddler – our daughter.  Good thing she did not throw a fit while we were waiting at the Red Lobster.  At the buffet, we had dinner quietly.

Well, coupon wasted.  Time wasted as well.
