Risa’s and her asthma attacks

Risa’s and her asthma attacks

Risa

I slept only for two hours last night. Risa had high fever 39.7 Celsius and the fever finally broke down at 5 AM. I’m a bit sleepy right now but I don’t feel tired at all. Losing weight gave me a lot of benefits other than looking good. I also feel less tired after I shed 7 kg (15 pounds) in less than two months. I feel GREAT!

Back to Risa, Risa has been sick on and off lately. Mostly mild cold but since she has asthma so it always get worse. No matter how careful I am with cleaning the dust in the house, she keeps getting asthma attacks every month. Maybe it from allergy reaction from something but I haven’t been using any chemicals cleaning stuff at home since she was born. I even made my own fabric softener from vinegar and essential oils. I cleaned the bathroom and house using Dr.Bronner magic soap. We’re using hardwood floor at home so I don’t think her asthma came from the dust. read more

New iPhone is out

New iPhone is out

NTT Docomo iPhone

The new iPhone is out but I don’t even have a slightest desire to get a new one. Even after NTT Docomo now also starts offering the new iPhone. Although I’m excited that iPhone is finally available on NTT Docomo but I think am going to wait until the next iPhone 6 is out. I’m using iPhone 5 now and pretty happy with it.

I’m going to wait at least until my 2-year contract with Softbank ended next year around fall. That reminds me that I do still have my Docomo phone but I don’t use it as much as I use my Softbank phone. I only use my docomo keitai phone for emergency calls since their signal is FAR better than Softbank one. read more

Prices hikes

Prices hikes

grocery shopping

grocery shopping

Just had grocery shopping at Marunaka and realised that they’ve raised the prices almost for everything.
I can’t believe one Apple cost ¥158 yen. It used to be only ¥99 yen. Three carrot cost me ¥198 yen, and it used to be ¥98-99 yen.
Need to cut down on my expense from now on because I read that the Japanese government planning to raise the consumption tax from 5% to 8% starting next month and 10% starting 2015. I know it’s probably nothing compare to other countries like Brazil and India but still it is going to hit Japan economy quite hard. read more

Summer Vacation is Over

Summer Vacation is Over

my birthday

my birthday

Risa’s summer vacation is over. Back to school to our regular schedule.
Risa’s first say at school after the along summer vacation was okay. Her teacher said that she talks a lot 🙂
Second day, Risa was a bit cranky and she cried when I dropped her at school. Hopefully she’ll adjust well soon enough.

Anyway, don’t have much going on in my life. Had my birthday a few weeks ago and it was ok. SILs was visiting and she got me a birthday cake. I’m thankful enough to have great SILs. But I didn’t get myself any birthday present since I already have everything so no self-birthday present this year.But maybe I’ll get it when I finally have something I really want LOL.
I can’t believe I am now 34 years old. Time flies so quick! I remember started blogging when I was 23 years old. My first blog was hosted on blogspot.com. Then I moved to Blurty, then moved again to Live Journal and finally decided to host my own blog on angelsheart.net.
A few years later I changed my domain to a new one, it’s called Chocolive.net and stayed for a while. And last on 2007, I moved to another new domain leony.net and here I am at last settled down and trying to keep up with updating my blog which is not easy since I kind of lost interest on blogging after my husband passed away two and half year ago. read more
