Medical Bills & Life Insurance: A Whole New Perspective

Image
My family is going through some medical issues at the moment. It's been quite a year already.

My sweet, wonderful grandfather (aka Lolo, Filipino term for grandfather) already has leukemia. He has gone through chemo and was in the hospital late last year with pneumonia because his doctor failed to keep him up-to-date on his vaccination. I received a voicemail from my grandmother on Thursday saying that my grandfather was in the hospital since Monday. They didn't want to worry the family so we weren't notified sooner. Come to find out that he has cancer and a surgery to remove the mass is a possibility based on the capabilities of his 86-year-old heart and how he'd like to move forward. Eventually he chose to move forward with the surgery and later doctor's confirmed that's it's the only choice he had.

I went to visit him as soon as I could. I was happy to see that my sister, father and uncle were already there, alongside my grandmother. It's definitely…

Boston Terriers, Doritos & Paranormal Activity

Image
DB was watching Paranormal Activity when I came home from the gym this past weekend and even though I am super freaked out by the supernatural for reasons I don't care to discuss, I couldn't NOT be drawn to it. And of course it freaked me out from what I did see.



I saw this on Twitter and laughed out loud! Loved it!

Event Coordinator - #6 in 10 Most Stressful Jobs in America in 2012

Article: PR is now the seventh-most stressful job in America


I find this article surprising, only in that, my role as an Event Coordinator ranks #6 as the most stressful job in America. It can definitely be stressful with last minute changes, the unexpected happening after so many attempts to avoid the unexpected, and situations arsing you think you don't have any control over. BUT, as the Event Planner you have to take control of the situation to make sure the plan you worked down to the minute, with 20+ staff members reporting directly to you, and vendors needing a quick solution to make, occurs AS PLANNED.. or to appear something like it. You have to know when to draw the line, when and how to say NO and make the executive decision to keep things moving and adjust the timeline as needed.

I definitely have had to deliver the bad news to my groom that something was just not going to happen on the wedding day, with guests waiting at the door to be let into the venue space. Through…

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It looks BUSY already!

Image
I'm a bit late but I hope your first 5 days of the new year has been treating you very well. I had to return to my day job on Tuesday, January 3rd and surprisingly I was happy to do so. I enjoyed my week-long break to take care of the front yard, spend time with family, friends, and my dog. But now it's back to the grind.

I have a lot going on in 2012.

Next month, I have 4 Los Lonely Boys shows to go to.

Be sure to look for us, the La Onda Street Team, for some cool swag if you're going to any of the concerts in California.

I am getting married on April 19, 2012. I have less than 2 months before my fitting for my wedding dress. I am watching what I eat. DB drinks soda instead of beer now so it's caused me to drink a lot of soda. But I am back to drinking a lot more water. One-quarter of some Cran-Peach Juice and three-quarters water. It's not quite Propel but it works. I am on a good schedule at my gym and have left DailyBurn because they will start charging for th…
