Downloaded Videos for the Nephew

The nephew is prohibited to use any gadgets since he started his therapy.  He lacks in communication skill because he is too much exposed to gadgets.  It is very difficult because gadgets can make him stay still at home.  When I am busy doing chores at home, I gave him the tablet so he won’t be bugging me or make a lot of mess in the room and living area.  I downloaded several games on my laptop so the nephew has more games to play at choose. Which is not good.  In a way, I am blaming myself for this because I let him play with the games in the tablet for hours.  I should have talked to him more often to develop his communication skills.

The nephew’s addiction to gadgets came back a few days ago.  He saw one of his classmates at school playing with gadgets, and suddenly he asked me about my tablet.  He always bugs me to play with my tablet but my answer is no.  Because I did not let him play with the tablet, he bugs his younger sister (10 months).  I have decided to let him play with the tablet, but I deleted the previous games and downloaded educational videos.  Videos that will help the nephew develop his communication skills and, for him familiarized with letters, numbers, colors, shapes, manners, how to count and more.  So far, he likes it.

To make the waiting fruitful

Because of the law imposed by the city government of not allowing the kids to ride the motorcycle, I have to send and fetch the four-year-old nephew at school.  His father can’t send him to school anymore, only the eldest son.  The nephew’s class session is only two hours, I thought of wait for the dismissal or if I will go home after sending him off, I might stick in the traffic and will not be able to come back on the dismissal time.  My daily routine is messed up I must say.  I have to wake up two hours early than the usual, for I have to attend the eight months old niece. I have to get her ready before leaving her under my father’s supervision for two hours.

Two hour of waiting without doing anything is boring.  On my first week, I felt sleepy waiting because I did not bring my tablet.  My companion when I feel bored.  My two hours is wasted, too bad.  Now I have brought my tablet with me.  My two hours will be fruitful for I will be busy writing new post for my blogs.  Hopefully I will get to write many while waiting for the nephew.  Time is gold and wasting it is not good either.  My idle time waiting will be fruitful now.

Payable in 12 months

Infected files… Two words that made me decide to buy a new laptop instead of bringing it back to the technician who fixed it twice.  I cannot afford to spend more money and will end get busted again.  I have spent as much as buying a new laptop fixing it and I regret it.  I should not be stubborn when the sister told me to buy a new one instead of bringing it to the technician.  I am so pissed thinking of the bad decision I made then.  I should have listened to my sister then.  This is what I get from being so stubborn. Well, I just do not want to give up the old laptop which has sentimental value.  It is a remembrance from working so hard in blogging for the past four years.  Unfortunately, I end up giving it up.

I have a new laptop now, oh, it’s a netbook.  I prefer the smaller size and lighter one so it is easy to carry and not heavy.  Since I do not have money, I am using the credit card of my older sister.  I picked a not so expensive unit so I will not have a headache paying it.LOL!  It is an installment and I have to pay it in 12 months.  I hope and pray that more opportunity comes so I will be able to pay new netbook and internet connection.  I am enjoying my new partner in blogging now and it makes me happy.  It is fast, pretty and slim.

The laptop is busted, again!

My laptop acting badly for the last two weeks.  There are lots of unwanted and strange pop ups when every time I open a new tab.  It gets into my nerves and I am tempted to throw my laptop.  I felt really angry that I brought it to the technician the first time the laptop stops working.  I should have bought a new one instead of spending much hoping that it will go back to normal.  I end up regretting my decision back then.  The amount of money I have spend for this laptop to be repair is as much as the amount of a new netbook.  I really should have bought a new one.arghs!

I am in the mood to update my blogs today but the laptop is not helping me.  It does not open the browser.  I cannot open my blog.  Unwanted pop ups is still there.  I wonder why this is happening when in fact the laptop has just been reformatted two months ago.  I really do not know what is wrong with my laptop.  Thanks to my sister for lending me her laptop.  Right now I am thinking of bringing the laptop back to the technician of bought a new one.  It really breaks my heart thinking of the money I spend just to repair this valuable laptop of mine.  I guess I just have to close my eyes and give up the old laptop.  What do you think?
