Ranting About Winter’s Wrath & Troubles


Yes, I do. Who doesn’t anyway! Humpty Dumpty had a great fall and twisted his ankle. As husband about to leave for work yesterday, he slipped and fell on ground badly. He did not noticed the thin and transparent ice right at the door area where his car parked. He fell badly and hurt his ankle which is still swelling right now. This is one of the many accidents winter may cause to us.

Among the four season which do you think is the most expensive, cause tons of damages. accidents & destruction, inconvenience, and many more. Winter isn’t it, now there you go.

Well, aside from the obvious reason that winter makes us feel lazy because of the dropping weather temperature. It also makes me feel miserable, depress, restricted and etc. Here are other major things to rant about winter’s wrath and troubles.

Dry skin.

I need to put more lotion that the usual and it feels yucky and sticky yet, my skin still dry. I guess lotion for me is not an option anymore to prevent having dry skin, why well because of the cold and dry wintry weather it’s gonna dry anyway. I hate taking a shower on a cold weather but I have to otherwise you’ll stink. I take a shower 3 to 4 times a day. I’m a stay-at-home lazy slaves thus I have valid excuse for not taking a shower everyday. How about you, how often do you shower?

Itchy Skin

Mizzou Hand Scratcher given by MIL

Dry skin and itchy skin are partners. They work together to make your life miserable. From hair to toe it’s just so darn dry and itchy especially the scalp and back. The scalp is been my problem even if it’s not winter but it gets worse as i use hot water and that cause dryness and flaky skin and scalp. Scratching the back part of your body is a pain in the neck, thankfully i got a little help from a new handy friend, my hand Scratching that my MIL gave to me. It was given to her which was a souvenir item from Missouri i guess. Anyway, this bad boy helps a lot in scratching my back. I got two of them but my lil trouble maker broke it. Do you also experience itchy skin, what do you use to remedy and ease the itch. My son used to have eczema when he was still a baby and we used eczema lotion for it. His eczema it comes and go especially during the summer and worse on winter.

Dead & Withered Plants

Here’s one of the evidence, poor bonsai. My precious bonsai did not make to 2014. I lost count of how many plants have died in this house especially on the fall and winter season.

Nasty and Freezing Snow

This snow will turned into ice and icicles when it melts. I hate walking on a big pile and inches of snow in going to school every morning.

Frozen pipe and we paid 200 bucks to have it fixed yet up until now still frozen. We have no running water on our main bathroom. Last week another expenditure that cost us $800. We did not have hot water and we need to boil water for the kids bath. The broiler had to be fixed and that equipment that makes the water hot needs to be replaced. Winter made us broke waaaa. I know there’s no choice but to embrace winter, ranting and complaining about it is my way of steaming out my frustration about winter. can’t wait for spring to come.

Ozeri Green Earth Pan {review}

Cooking is essentially part of life. Whether you are a single person, married or with family you still have to cook. Frying an egg is very basic and yet there are some us can’t perfectly make a good sunny side up egg because of the pan. You’ll make a messy kitchen if you are using low quality kitchen ware. Why settle for a cheap pan when you can buy a quality Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan for a reasonable price. Cooking makes so easy and less messy when using the right kitchen equipment and cookware.
I was sent by Ozeri a 8″ Green Earth Frying Pan. I have been looking for a frying pan that will make my cooking a pleasant one. A frying pan that won’t give me too much hassle cleaning afterwards. Green Earth Pan by Ozeri featured Greblon, an ultra-safe 100% PTFE and PFOA free ceramic non-stick coating from Germany. The name Green Earth Frying Pan says it all thus one of the world’s first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection. It’s eco-friendly, ultra-safe and most of all free from any harmful chemicals that might mixed up to the food you cooked and served to your family. Other ceramic cookware contains synthetic properties from the PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) that is used in a coated non-stick frying pan. With the Green Earth Pan’s GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment.

Old and worn off pans

I have lost count already how many times I’ve bought a different set of frying pan and yet still not satisfied about it. It was couple of months ago when I bought a new one with white coated non-stick. I did not like it because it absorb the heat so fast and burned the food I cook. Thankfully, an Ozeri representative offered me to review their product in exchange of my honest review.
