Labor Day - Literally .. etc..

Today is Labor Day celebration in the States. Being in the military base, we get to enjoy those holidays too wherever we are. To start our day, I cooked tosilog for our breakfast because we need to eat something hearty before we joined the walkathon. We have participated to the 2.5K Family Walk here inside the base. Only two families participated, including us. We've finished 2o minutes and 42 seconds. We've shed sweat so that was our first exercise for the day.

Of course we need to document our bonding lol.

Participants to Family Walk and 5k Run.
After the sweaty activity for the day, we were served cut up apples, bananas, oranges and water to drink. We also got a shirt for participating.
When we came home, my husband wanted us to go to the mall but I don't feel like going. I was tired plus I already started doing our laundry. I cooked some pork ribs bbq (baked), steamed beans and rice. While waiting for the food to cook, hubby started vacuuming our carpet. He then steamed it afterwards.

Now my fingers are hurting because I scrubbed for almost an hour on the wall, cleaning up my son's arts. With the help of Magic Eraser from Mr. Clean I was able to cleaned it up. But man, it was tough, he used ball pen to write on the wall. So we were literally on LABOR today lol.. But its worth it because now we have a clean house.

Alrighty folks, have a great Labor Day Celebration to y'all! I am now signing off...zzzzzzzzzzzzz...


  1. sige dadalawin ko to sis para masubukan din sya. eto email ko

  2. my little one is also the same, been writing on the wall, curtains, table, & chairs. The pen marks just wont come off with scrubbing, so we ended up painting the wall, hehehe... Now I hid all the pens and pencils :)

  15. Just 2 families joined the Walkathon? I could understand you, maybe they were celebrating Labor day bbq-ing. You did have a "LABOR" day, hahaha! srubbing your son's wall..been there, done that, and still doing it.. Ball Pen inks are hard to get rid off. When the youngest turns 5, you will be able to relax a little bit..I got 3 more years to wait, wahhhhh!
