Have you ever felt like you are a machine gun, firing non stop but still misses the target? For the past few days, I feel just like that. You fire, you miss and then you fire again, missing again. Close the door. Turn off the lights. Put back the bar soap on the holder. Flush the toilet. Put the dirty clothes on the laundry bin. Take the cup in to the sink. Close this, turn off that, put it here, put it there. Endless! This is what makes up my stay at home career.. endless this and that. It is very tiring I tell you. And as always, you just ended up doing it. They just don’t seem to care if yuor whole world will collapse if they don’t close the bathroom door. But I guess it’s entirely my fault. I demand too much of them. Why can’t I accept the fact that I have BOYS.. and that no matter what I do, you just can’t teach them some new tricks. They are built to mess and snore and leave the toilet seat wet. And they demand to be feed…. BOYS. I am sure lucky to have four. sigh

If it's about me, it's in here.
I was inspired by fedhz to post my eye sight problem history. I was in grade school then and we were here in Manila (or Pasay to be exact) We were waiting for a cab because we were to watch Aiza’s movie (Wake up little suzie is it?). My head starts aching and I started vomiting on the pavement. I also graced the theater house floor with my dinner. My aunts rushed me to a nearest hospital and I was X rayed. It was still vivid on my mind, I remember the doc telling me that I can go home the morning after and I can have my donut. There was nothing wrong on my head (seems that xray cannot detect OCd harhar). I can’t remember what happened after that, if I was subject t more test or not. I only know that it was two years after before I was diagnosed with eye sight problem. I was in Grade three then and I had a hard time keeping up with the lectures. Good thing my godfather worked in an optical shop. They were shocked that my myopia(near sightedness)is that bad, my first grade was 300 or so. They gave a glasses which is lower than my real grade.. They said my eyes needed to adjust from having one fist before they upgrade it to the exact grade. I was so embarrassed to wear glasses then. My schoolmates were teasing me, they say I look Kris Aquino.. oh G! I just so hate it. Back then it was not a cool thing and people mistook you from being intelligent (and I so hate it). It took about a week before I wear the glasses full time. That was year 1990.. Eight years or so after that, I discovered that I also have astigmatism. A simple explanation would be, you loose focus, a single line to you may appear two lines or blurred lines at all distance. Eighteen years later, my astigmatism is worse. Here is the case, I can’t avail the one hour eyeglasses promo. I am only qualified for a week or longer wait for an eyeglasses. They say my lenses were processed type.. and is expensive. In a place where suppliers are located, my lens will cost $50 at minimum (excluding frames). Good thing that my myopia is not competing with my astigmatism.. Myopia give up and gave the floor to Astigmatism.
Getting older is expensive.. you just discovered a lot of unhealthiness in your body that needs to be taken care of.
note: My family has it in the genes. My sisters also have eye sight problems like mine.
In a few days, I will be turning 27. I wish I have 27 dresses to celebrate my birthday. LOL I only have one wish for my birthday and I have a good vibes about it. Let me see if my benefactor is really reading my blog LOL.. He was reading my mind yesterday, he bought me a Dulce de Leche cake. I mentioned in my acceptance speech that I am so craving for it. Back to my wish, yeah, I only have one, and that would be a digital SLR camera.. nyahaha..
I am choosing between Cannon and Nikon. What do you think is better? I am writing for a review site but no, I will not rely on its users comment to decide harhar.. I know too well that people write there even though they have no experience n the product yet.. (uy sidetrip hehe) So I have to crawl on the web and look for a nice digital SLR, that I would like and that benefactor pocket will love..
The secret, where are you when I needed you?
