We can’t contact him

Few days ago, we are commemorating the death anniversary of my late mother. It has been 26 years since she left us. Just like the previous years, we visited her tomb; light candles for her and offers prayers for her. The mother’s death anniversary is one of the important dates/events in the family. Remembering her day is one way of letting her know that we remember her always, love her and that she has special place in our hearts. However, the celebration is not complete because the youngest in the family is not with us. He did not able to come and visit the tomb of our mother.

It is so sad that the younger brother did not able to come. We have tried to contact him few days before the death anniversary of our mother, but we can’t reach his number. We do not know if he uses the same number or got a new one. Though we did not able to contact him, still we are hoping that he will come for the mother’s death anniversary. We just guess, he chooses not to come because his wife is no longer welcome in our home. She committed a sin that is too difficult for us to forgive her. Our only means of communication is through mobile phone, hopefully we will be able to contact him soon.

More games in my tablet

The kids at home always fight who will play first with the tablet. We have four techie kids at home. Every time they see me playing with my tablet, they beg me to play with it. Only the younger one wins because of crying tactic. He is very noisy, banging the screen door, screaming, and throwing everything he sees. To avoid those things from happening, I have to prioritize him. And because of this priority, he broke my tablet. It fells on the floor and LCD is broken. The older niece grabs the tablet because she wants to play and the young one refused to give it so it fells on the floor.

My tablet is fixed now but I did not allow any of them to play with it. But sometimes, I do break the rules especially if I want to sleep and rest. Playing the tablet is the only way to keep the nephew quiet. Good thing they learned how to share now. They aren’t grabbing when someone is playing with the tablet. They learned lesson after it fells on the floor I guess. The problem is that I only have three games downloaded in my tablet because I do not have memory card already. It gets boring playing the same games over again. I need to download more games. I even get bored playing three games always. It is time for me to buy memory card so I can download more games in my tablet. More games coming soon for me and the kids.

Make sure to have back-ups

Every events moments, celebrations, and the likes whether it is big or small we like to take photos for remembrance. Photos help us remember happenings in the past. It is also nice to look back of the old photos, to see our looks before and the places we have been visited. To me, it is a joy in my hear t to look back all the photos in the past. I like to remember the things from before when I was younger and the family is still complete. Because photos are treasure to me, I see to it I have back-up so when the photos in my camera accidentally deleted I do not have to worry because I have extra copy.

It was an online blogger friend told me to always save back-ups of photos, files and important documents just in case my original files are corrupted. Since then, I make it a habit to save back-ups always. I am saying this after what had happened to my sister’s 700 plus photos in her camera. The niece’s accidentally deleted all the photos in her camera and she does not extra copy of all the photos. She gets angry because the photos are of his two sons, their birthday, their bonding, baptism/christening, Christmas and New Year, and important events of their life. If only she could turn back the time, she would save back-ups. The photos now are only in their memories. She learned lesson from what happened and said she will save back-ups next time.

A very techie kid

The nephew started playing games on the tablet when I brought him once at the SSS (Social Security Service) to pay my contribution. I have to let him play while waiting for our number to be called for him to not feel bored. The tablet keeps him busy I must say. I am so thankful that day because he just sits down and playing games in the tablet. Times like this, I can say I appreciate the existence of the modern technologies like gadgets. Aside from we can use it in business matters, surfing over the internet; it can also entertain to not feel bored while waiting.

The addicted of the nephew in playing gadgets started then.   But I have to limit him from using it because it is not good at his age. Until his father got a presents from his boss from working so hard. The present was a tablet. I can tell he is the happiest boy in the world. Since he doesn’t know how to operate it, he is just watching his father or mother operating the tablet. He is indeed a smart kid because he memorized what he saw. He now knows how to operate the tablet and knows how to install games. He knows better than me. He is a very techie kid and I am really surprised. Even so, we still have to limit him on playing for his own good.
