Handicap Vehicles

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

About 3 months ago, my dad underwent knees cap replacement surgery. He replaced both of his knee caps. He has a problem with his knees for such a long time. He suffered from rheumatism since he was in the 40s. Then recently he could not walk at all and had to use wheelchair to move around. It really frustrated him as he was very healthy besides the problem with his knees and still actively working.

During the time when he could not walk, we decided to buy a wheelchair so he could independently moved around as we really could not assist him 24 hours a day. When I was in a search of buying wheelchair, I came across NMEDA.

NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer. NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

I tought that this is perfect for us since we are inexperienced in regards of this area and really need assistance as much as possible, and I found that NMEDA dealer will be there to help if we need additional training or product refinement.
Unfortunately my dad location is not in US so I could not use their services. However, if you are in US, you can search your nearest NMEDA dealer using their locator finder.

Tips for Organizing

With the change of seasons just around the corner, I find myself craving change. I’m ready for cooler temperatures, refreshing (and more frequent) rain showers, and the structure provided by our back-at-school routine. While I wait patiently for Mother Nature to refresh things on the outside, it’s a terrific time to freshen things up on the inside, as well. If you’re craving change, too, here are some ideas to get you started.

Whether the source is school or the ramp-up of volunteer activities, the season of “more paper” is just about upon us. Tweak your paper management systems now so they’re ready to handle the influx of fall’s many papers. Clean out old files to create space for new projects and paperwork. And look for ways to simplify your filing systems so it’s easier to stay on top of it all.

Freshen up your closet by donating items that have grown tired and faded over the past season. You’ll create breathing room and space for something new.

Make plans to freshen up a room in your home. Peruse magazines for DIY ideas, or take a trip to the paint or fabric store for swatches.

Create the feeling of fall inside by pulling out a few pieces of your fall decor. Seeing these items will remind you that cooler days are just around the corner.

Use the seasonal change in routines due to back-to-school or the lessening of daylight hours to carve out space in your schedule for something new. Sign up for the yoga class that’s been on your “someday” list for way too long, or work a daily walk into your morning routine.

One of the ultimate goals of organizing your closet is to weed out clothing that you no longer wear. To help, here’s a simple tip. The day before your closet organizing session, wear your absolute favorite outfit. Then, take note of how terrific you feel throughout the day. Use these feelings on closet organizing day as your litmus test as you sort through your clothing and decide what to keep and what to let go of. Wouldn’t it be amazing to feel favorite-outfit-good every single day? By making the right choices as you organize your closet, you can work toward that reality—feeling terrific about your organized closet, and what’s stored inside it, too.


Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.

Nowadays, it’s very rare that I have a chance to watch my favorite TV channel. Most of the time I watch the Disney channel or the Nickelodeon channel because my eldest daughter insists that it’s her “turn” to watch TV. Don’t ask me about the newest movie on HBO nowadays because I rarely have the opportunity to watch it. Instead, ask me about the newest movie or cartoon on the Disney channel or the Nickelodeon channel and I can answer you right away.

Recently, I brought my eldest daughter (she is 6 years old) to watch movie in the theather the first time as I thought she is old enough to sit through the entire movie. She really enjoyed the movie and sit nicely through movie.

Speaking of movie, do you know that "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" is available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download? We didn’t see it in the theater last year, so I guess I will ask hubby to get the Double DVD Pack that includes "The Squeak Along" Bonus Disc, with more music, mayhem and all-new singalongs, buy it now!

If you still don't get enough, go here: More Munk Mayhem. Your kids will have a blast with this!

I still remember watching The Alvin Show on TV when I was a little girl myself and I remembered asking my mom to buy me chipmunks as a pet. I hope my daughter won’t ask me the same request.

The Dog-Food Bag Project

When I saw this project, I think this is very clever idea. Not only you have opportunity to recycle, in the end you also got yourself a very big and sturdy grocery bag. I don't like small and shallow grocery bag, I want my grocery bag big and deep enough to put all my grocery stuffs inside. Not only this bag meet my criteria, but it is actually sturdy enough to stand up by itself.

If you decided to make this project, don't forget to block out the UPC code on the bottom of the bag to avoid you being charged of a full bag of dog food.
