The pool party is cancelled

My friends and I at school where my nephew studied planned to have our Christmas party at the pool near our area. Everything is planned perfectly, the date, time, foods that we have to bring and the pool we will be going. We also have our final meeting during the Christmas party of the kids that was five days before the planned pool party. The pool party planned last month. I did not agree with it because planning ahead is not good. It will not be happening. I have experienced it many times and I told them about it. But they insist that it won’t happen. Our pool party will pushed through. So, I go with the flow.

Today is the day of our pool party. However, two days before the pool party I received a message from one of them telling me that three of the girls are not sure to come. Some problems come out. They have to choice but to cancel the pool party. We felt sad because three of us are ready for the pool party. We in fact bought the things that we will be bringing and wearing. Early morning today, they went to our house and told me their reasons why they cannot attend to the pool party. After hearing their reasons, I understand them and told them that we can still have our pool party anytime when things go smoothly.

My friend who just gave birth two months ago is scared that she will get pregnant again. If she will be, she likes it if her first born is three years old already. However, after reading about pregnancy tips online, she is glad that she is breastfeeding her baby.

According to Pregnancytips.org, getting pregnant while breastfeeding can sometimes be difficult. This is because breastfeeding is a natural contraceptive. The hormones produced by breast milk also prevents eggs from being released, making it nearly impossible to get pregnant during this time. The best thing to do, but also one of the most difficult, is to wait until ovulation returns on it’s own before trying to get pregnant. You can sometimes “trick” your body into having ovulation return early, by spacing out your baby’s feedings as much as possible. Sometimes your ovulation will return to normal when you begin to introduce your baby to solid foods and there is more time between breastfeeding sessions. So, how long do you have to wait for your periods and ovulation to return to normal? According to Le Leche League, during the first three months of breastfeeding, you have a zero chance of pregnancy; between three and six months, you have a 2 percent chance of pregnancy; and after six months, you have a 6 percent change of pregnancy assuming that your menstrual cycle has not resumed yet. On average, it takes approximately 14.6 months for menstrual period to resume. The best trick for getting pregnant while breastfeeding? Patience.

I admit I am curious about a person’s life especially if that person is dear to me and special to me. I like to know and hear their whereabouts, what keeps them busy, how is their life and the likes. I know it is not good to be that nosy to others life however, I do not ask personal questions or something about their personal life because it is invasion of privacy. Also, I do set some limitations so I won’t cross the dangerous line. I do not want to go beyond because it will ruin our relationship. Also, I do respect someone’s personal affair/life.

But I do not understand why others do like to be nosy and curious about others personal life. I am saying this because someone is too curious about my life especially the love life. Asking me if I have a man yet, when will I get married as I am not getting any younger. To be honest, it is irritating asking the same questions every time we see each other. As far as I could, I am trying to ignore them but sometimes it gets into my nerves and I want to yell at them. Yes, there is more than one person who is so interested about my personal life. I know I am curious about others life too but not this curious because I know the feeling. I do hope that these people will stop bothering, being too curious about my life and would rather mind their own business.

Be safe everyone!

A super typhoon will hit the country this weekend. It is getting stronger as it is approaching the Philippine Area of Responsibility. The people lives in the area where typhoon is expected to land fall are advised to evacuate their home. They are advised to stay in the higher area for possible storm surge. The first storm surge experienced was a year ago where super typhoon Yolanda hits the Visayas areas. It was the worse experience ever because thousands of lives is taken, homes are crashed and other properties has been destroyed.

It has been a year since super typhoon Yolanda damaged the Visayas areas particularly in Tacloban, Leyte, Samar and closest provinces. The people haven’t covered fully of Yolanda’s devastation and now another super typhoon will be hit again this weekend. Another trial for them to face and overcome. I do hope that this super typhoon Ruby (International name Hagupit) will not leave severe damage like Yolanda did. People are more aware now and ready for this super typhoon Ruby and for the possible storm surge. We will be praying for your safety and praying that this typhoon will slowly land fall and will spare you all. God bless everyone and be safe!
