From A (Busy) Working Mom

My dearest lifessweetbittersurprises,

How are you?

If you can talk to me, I know you’ll say “Mae, you’ve been ignoring me.” and  you’ll put up a face like this :(.

Please don’t think that I am ignoring you. I am not and will not.

I am glad that even in my absence, people around the world keep you company. Thank you to the new followers and for all the likes and comments while I was (and will be) busy at work.

 I miss you. I miss writing and reading the wonderful blogs of people we’ve met here. I’ve spent hours last night and this morning to read some of the posts. I had a great time!

The 2 weeks at work had my time occupied. I am still in the process of learning about the companies assigned to me, how they handle their accounts and so on. I have to meet 2 deadlines this February – management reports and audit. I know it’s boring stuff for you so let’s leave it at that.


Work-Home. Work-Daughter-Less Sleep. This was my routine for the past two weeks. The time I spent with my daughter was becoming lesser. I know it’s not a good thing for her and for my health but I hope this will change in the coming days.

Anyways, I have wonderful colleagues. I’ve learned a lot from them – good and bad. Something for me to think about in the future.

I also received a good news last Tuesday. But that I have to tell later. It’s something about a plan I have been pursuing since December last year.

I am on my day off and I am spending it with my daughter. I’ll see you soon. Happy Weekend!






Today is the Day

I’m off to work in a few minutes. My first day with a new company. Excited? No… haha

But I’m gonna step it up and make the day right. I’ve got an inspiration right now from McDonalds – Hooray for Today!


Monday Madness

I’m trying.

It should be easier when I wake up with

No headache,

No long queues in my ride to work,

No traffic,

No piles of paperwork on my desk,

No irate customer at the end of the line,

No 140+ unread mail in my inbox (have they been working in the weekend?),

No missing paper supplies in my rack (where the hell did it go?)

More coffee in the vendo machine (pffft, don’t you know I need one too?)…

Sigh, typical Monday, but as it is, this will pass.

I’m taking on the challenge of surviving this madness with a smile.

I’m trying to be HAPPY, it is a state of mind (say that again)

It is a state of mind. (again)

Happiness is a state of mind!

Lunch Time! But before I go eat, Happy Monday!
