Work, Work and Work

Oh my God... I have been swarmed by work. So many things to do and so little time.

I'm feeling the pressure of being the Acting Head of HR. So many issues need to be solved. Bosses pulak duduk asyik panggil. I have told the President so many times to get a permanent Head of Department. I'm just not willing to take up the responsibilities... not in HR. I am not ready to sacrifice my time and myself for the sake of the company.

According to the President, we might get somebody early of next month. I really hope so as I need to go for my operation. I have already postponed it once and I don't think I can wait any longer.

Handwriting On The Wall

I found this story which touches my heart. Of course my daughter didn't write on the wall, but sometimes when she gave me her drawings (which thank God happen to be on the paper), my heart will be overflooded with love and joy.

Handwriting on the Wall

A weary mother returned from the store, lugging groceries through the kitchen door. Awaiting her arrival was her eight-year-old son, eager to relate what his younger brother had done.
"While I was out playing and Dad was on a call, T.J. took his crayons and wrote on the wall! It's on the new paper you just hung in the den. I told him you'd be mad at having to do it again."

She let out a moan and furrowed her brow.

"Where is your little brother right now?"

She emptied her arms and with a purposeful stride, she marched to his closet where he had gone to hide. She called his full name as she entered his room. He trembled with fear -- he knew that meant doom!

For the next ten minutes, she ranted and raved about the expensive wallpaper and how she had saved. Stressed over all the work it would take to repair, she condemned his actions and total lack of care. The more she scolded, the madder she got. Then stomped from his room, totally distraught!

She headed for the den to confirm her fears. When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears.

The message she read pierced her soul with a dart. It said, "I love Mommy," surrounded by a heart.

Well, the wallpaper remained, just as she found it, with an empty picture frame hung to surround it.

A reminder to her, and indeed to all, take time to read the handwriting on the wall!!!

Fun Weekend

Weekend was great.

Hubby's cousin came over with her husband and children. Ellix was very happy to spend some time with other kids.

I prepared some food and had picnic (brunch) by the pool side. Much to my delight... all the food habis. Tak sangka pulak the simple brunch menu of salad, spagheti with mushroom and asparagus and roast chicken can be so yummy. Infact, the sausages prepared for the kids pun tak cukup and I had to go upstairs and cooked some more.

It was quite difficult to get the kids out of the pool. But after 3 hours of swimming, I had no choice but to force them. They finally got out after I promised to let them watch cartoon, uninterrupted!

Tak sangka pulak simple activities macam ni can be so much fun.
