Cell phone plans, even prepaid ones can be very confusing. I get frustrated because I can’t seem to find a phone and a plan that works for me. I don’t call, text or even get calls much so it would really just be a waste of money if I’d go for those convoluted conventional phones with contracts. I have owned a very cheap prepaid Nokia phone for years. Though it still works great for me when we travel, I thought I’d look into those new and nicer phones that have prepaid plans. I have seen quite a few that I like at Walmart but unfortunately, I was told that it won’t work well in our area. They offered me other options but they don’t have rollover balance which is pretty important to me since a $25 dollar refill card would last me several months. So I thought I’d do more research and maybe I can find some better deals online. AT&T wireless has some interesting prepaid phones and plan options so I might just get one from them. Oh, well I may have to sleep on it, probably tomorrow I can think straight and can finally decide on something. Ironically, I have already decided on a perfect case for cell phone, lol! I fell in love with the color so I guess that's my cue which phone to get then. Oh, well!

Spillway gates are opened

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that hubby works in a hydro-power plant. We live close to the plant so technically we live close to Bull Shoals Dam. Fortunately, a more elevated area from the water itself. It has been raining incessantly for the past weeks or so, resulting to the increase of the lake's water level. They had to open the spillway gates to release water back to the river. We drove down to the area the other day and took some photos of the dam. The first one shows the lake, obviously with higher than normal water level. The second one shows the spillway gates as water rushes down stream to the river. I know it looks quite scary but the dam is there to prevent the lake from flooding which had happened a long time ago.

Blank mind

I don’t know what to blog about today. I feel like writing something but nothing really interesting comes to mind. The movie “This is Spinal Tap” which hubby is watching right now, is not actually helping me come up with great writing ideas. Not to mention the fact that I can hear the baby making weird baby noises in his bouncy chair right now. He probably doesn’t like the movie his daddy is watching either, lol! But hubby has been working his butt off with no day off this week so I guess he deserves a break and get to choose which movie he wants to watch, even if one of the characters wears this stupid looking softball socks which is supposed to make him look funny. Du’h!

Here we go again!

Sometimes I’d just wish I’m still pregnant, because for some reason, my face was cleared with blemishes and nodular acne when I was pregnant. It was probably due to the hormonal changes that my body was experiencing at that time. I have an acne-prone skin and I have to be very choosy with the products to put on my face. I have noticed a few acne on my forehead right now. Arrg, I hate it! I think I will start my Obagi treatment again before this starts to spread like wildfire.

Spring cleaning here and there

I thought I was gonna start some spring cleaning last weekend. Well, sorta… But actually I am also currently redecorating and rearranging the living room. Hubby also set up our home theatre which was just in the box for a year now, haha. Yes, we still have some boxes stacked up somewhere from the move from Ozark. We decided it’s about time to dig through them and see if we can use some stuff for our living room. Surprisingly, we found out an old rotary phone that hubby owned back when he was still single. It looks ancient alright but it still works, to my disgust surprise. I mean this thing was probably before barcode scanners exist. It’s amazing how the world evolves. Technology has definitely improved our way of life. I intend to finish my living room project before August. I am excited. I’d be buying new accent items with exciting colors to make the room pop. It’ll be fun.

Favorite time of the year

I love the spring time. Beautiful weather, luscious spring greens everywhere, perfect time to hang out outdoors. The bright sun can be pretty annoying but hey sunscreen lotions are sold cheaply in almost every store in town. More so, it’s my favorite time of the year because I can use my persol sunglasses and look cool, chic and fabulous. How about you, are you ready for the spring?

Am I just being impatient or what!

For some reason, we always seem to get stuck behind a slow moving check-out counter. We went to Walmart today after a doctor’s appointment to grab some baby stuff and it took them so long to check us out. I don’t care if they are using those fancy bluetooth barcode scanner, I just think the long wait at the counter was unacceptable. It didn’t bother me before I had a baby, but now every single second matters. Oh well, just ranting! I don’t want to dwell on negativities anymore, lol!

Table Rock Homes

When we decided to move out of Ozark a year ago, hubby considered working at the Table Rock Dam in Branson, Missouri. The Table Rock lake homes in the area were absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, there was not an open post at that time so we settled at Bull Shoals area instead which is approximately a little over an ago away from Table Rock. The lake here is pretty. However, I am not really an outdoorsy type so we’ve not done anything like fishing or swimming yet. Too bad huh! Well, probably when the baby gets old enough to enjoy doing stuff like this, we might go out and do outdoor stuff more often.
