I haven’t blogged for days.
To be honest, I haven’t really blogged for months so that should not have come as a surprise. But I truly expected blog-arrhoea during the first days of my young blog. However, these past few days have been so incredibly busy it’s not even funny!
I’m not complaining. I’m grateful I’m buddy because it means I have the means to live.
It means that a lot of things are happening to me.
It means I’m healthy enough to do things and work things out.
It probably means I’m good or responsible enough to be trusted with tasks.
But yeah, I would be lying if I said I also wasn’t thankful it’s already Friday evening.
Let me give you a brief description of my week. It wasn’t really exciting so I’ll spare you the boring details.
On Sunday, I decided I can’t take my old laptop’s sluggishness anymore and bought myself a new one. My old laptop isn’t even that old. I’ve had it for barely a year. Oh well, papel.
On Monday, we welcomed two additional members to the Philippine team of Stay At Home Mum Australia. One is a news anchor at a local TV station while the other is a fellow mum blogger (hi, Pam!). I’m thrilled to see “my” (totally claiming ownership here!) team expand, but at the same time, I know I’d be busy training and teaching and answering questions! Again, not complaining!
I’ve also been given a big number of reports to make a few days before the deadline (which was today). Knowing working 8 hours a day wouldn’t allow me to finish all of those reports, I had to work overtime a couple of times this week. I’ve never done this when I was a freelancer! 😀
And let’s not forget my responsibilities as a “freshman” real estate broker. I had to go downtown a couple of days to fix my requirements for my HLURB registration. Good thing the government office is *gasp* efficient and *gasp* waiting was a breeze!
Fun fact: During both days I was out and about fixing my requirements, I had so little free time that I didn’t have eyebrows on both occasions.
My body is still tired from doing my government duties and working overtime (I finished working at 10 pm last night), so today, I signed off from work early (around 2:30 pm), took a shower, and took my 3-year old with me to take a nap. Zzzz.
Right now, if somebody made me choose between a new designer bag and a couple of hours of sleep, I’ll choose the latter without batting an eyelash.
Of course, there would be regrets afterward.
Seriously though, I’m so thankful for the break.
What about you? How was your week?
