OK, I have to tell you, I hold lots of PHD, project half done that is..... let's not talk about the unfinished cards, layouts and albums and traveling photo books, I always have the intention to do a year book, to document all the important events that happened in a year, 2012 is a failure, and then 2013 year book, instead of doing at the end of the year like 2012, where all my memories is fading by the days, I do it whenever I can find time, but it always took so much time for me to do a page, and I am still working on MAY, so you can see, I am playing catch up with year book 2013..... now what can I change to make my year book a success? Well, by doing December Daily 2013, I started a new habit of jotting down small notes on a daily basis, and then get on with the project right away a day or two after, if I am busy, I will then catch up a few pages as soon as I find time, by using a collection of paper for my December Daily is also an important factor of getting the work done in time, so...... you see, the key is keep it simple as I do spent lots of time matching paper and making my own embellishment most of the time. The conclusion - I am doing my year book 2014, Project Life Style.
I bought 3 collection at one goal, keep it simple, remember? use ready made products, no no, I am not finding excuse for buying these, I have a reason for it right?
It's true!!!! I am keeping up to date so far....

Once again I reminded myself, focus only on Happy Thoughts!

Although I wasn't feeling well, the stomach flu is still bugging me, but that didn't stop me from going shopping with Dolce.
I did a blog post for one of our sponsor for the Singapore Group here in Vegas, sent the link to the sponsor and the EVP was very touched by the post and sent a thank you email to me, it is very rewarding to learn that your work was being appreciated.

Today mark a special mile stone for us and Papi, I used to be so bothered by how much time I need in order to train Papi, I keep a Papi journal just to jot down what time he do his business, when is the next time I need to take him out for another round, I make sure whoever is watching him jot down the time on the journal etc, it was tiring.... but you know what, he has been good and today, we finally get rid of the Papi journal because we no longer has to worry about it anymore, he is officially house-broken!
Once again, I reminded myself, happy thoughts, happy thoughts because I was feeling a little down, for no reason....

It is important to take note on a day like this - I am feeling good again!
We will be taking Papi for his first road trip soon, I am starting to feel a little anxious, thoughts of losing him while we walk him in CA scared me, so we went to Pet Co to get him a tag with my phone number, we also get a second collar, a more secure than the one we had just in case.
as you can see, I am really keeping it very simple and try to use the PL collection as much as possible just to save time and able to get year book done in a timely manner, adding a little die cut and doodling is pretty much all I add to the ready made PL cards

I caught Papi sleeping on our bed with Randy, he used to ran away when we tried to pet him, and we figure out that he is the dog that doesn't like to be hold and petted, but Dolce changes everything when she came back home from Paris over the winter break. Now Papi sleeps with us and let us pet him too. Like Randy said - Papi finally become the dog we always wanted, LOL!

I bought a bone shape cookie cutter few days ago and make my first batch of dog treat for Papi today
January 7 and 8, 2014
Papi's first road trip!!!!
Papi is such a good boy, he went to the training pad to do his business in the hotel room
sniff and check around the room a little bit but never make any trouble the whole time we were there, no barking, no running wild
and went to his crate after saying night night, and slept the whole night through like a good boy
such a good boy Papi!
we made one stop on our way to CA, spent about 7-8 minutes trying to let him pee on the training pad, but he didn't, so we learn that he knows how to hold for 4 hours and know how to ask if he wanted to, we didn't make any stop on our way back.
Ok, I had to admit, like all Asians, we do not wear shoes at home, and Papi is the same way, we do not walk him outside the house except on our patio, so he is pretty much a very clean dog. When we let him pee on our way to CA, we put newspaper all around at an empty spot at the gas station, so he won't step on oil stain or pick up anything from the ground, and then top with his training pad, that way, his feet stays really clean so we are able to put him on the bed with us. Good that my husband agree to all these things as he is a clean freak as well!
he is so loved
by all of us
