Carving quality time for your spouse, when both of you have jam-packed schedules day and night can be a challenge, for sure – but if you consciously make the decision to prioritize your time, it becomes effortless. You’ll find yourself looking forward to that time after work with your loved ones, and not with your beloved television remote or computer mouse. To achieve more balance in your relationship and your life, you must first make a few difficult changes.
First, it’s important slowly pry yourself away from the digital distractions after work hours – and include your spouse in your hobbies. Instead of playing online casino games, grab a deck of cards and sit with your family around the table. You’ll eventually find you enjoy yourself even more when you engage in a favorite activity with your loved ones instead of an anonymous opponent online.
Secondly, make a point to sit and have meals together, engaging in conversations about your day. It’s too easy to grab dinner and plop in front of the television or computer – but you’re missing out on crucial quality time in your marriage. These small changes are easy to work into your daily life, and can greatly improve your marriage. Learn to enjoy your favorite activities together instead of zoning out separately in front of your respective screens.

I'm frustrated because:
1. My little girl snapped off my digital camera, now I have to find a shop to repair it.
2. Of issues at work...employee concerns that were being addressed properly.
3. I still have cough. :(

Palace tells pols: Avoid claiming credit for projects

MANILA, Philippines - Malacañang sees no need to remind government officials to avoid placing the name and image either of President Benigno Aquino III or themselves on promotional materials for public projects.
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda compared the move to the Aquino administration's "no wang-wang" policy, or government vehicles' non-use of sirens.
He said government officials should follow the president's example.
"Parang wang-wang yan e. Di mo na kailangan sabihin. Itong ginawang ehemplo ng Pangulo, siguro marunong na rin kayong sumunod kahit na walang utos sa inyo. You should get the drift already," Lacierda stressed.
Echoing the Palace's stand on the issue, Sen. Francis Escudero has filed Senate Bill 2187 that seeks to ban the naming of government projects after politicians or other people.
It has been common practice for national and local government officials to claim credit for infrastructure projects built during their tenure.
The bill proposes to punish violators with 1-year imprisonment and a fine ranging from P100,000 to P1 million.
This is good. I do hope that government officials will strictly follow. Finally, someone raised this concern and hopefully will be able to materialized.
