I won’t be posting my usual Weekly Wishes today, nor Travel Tuesday tomorrow, and if you noticed I didn’t post my very own Four Things Friday last week because you guys, I am burned out.
Last week was another hectic work week for the finance team. A colleague said to me, “Hey.. your eyes..” and I thought “Hmm.. this guy is getting a little flirtatious” but hey, I welcome any compliment I get, so I flashed him a smile. He continued “It look a little crazy, you err.. should do something about it”. What? WHAT??!? My eyes looked crazy and I should do something about it!??!
smacking his head with calculator comforting him whether he was suggesting me to do a plastic surgery, it turned out that he noticed that I was looking tired every day, and I have eye bags. O.. okay. That’s better than “crazy eyes”, but I can’t do anything about it for now as work will only get busier next week. It’s the reporting time, and I have to squeeze in two weeks work in between because I am taking leave for Korea trip right after that.
Speaking of the trip, I haven’t packed at all! because I don’t have anything to pack. I don’t have winter clothes. I thought that my only coat, that looks very similar to Sherlock Holmes’, was enough. Recently the girls set me straight; I wouldn’t be able to walk around at below zero degree wearing it, they said. Puffy winter coat, earmuff and padded boots; all are on my shopping list, and I only have today to get it all. I am hitting Uniqlo later.
Also, I haven’t pencilled down my itinerary yet, I have written on the post-its and bookmarked here and there the places I want to visit, but I haven’t created my usual itinerary chart and it made me feel unprepared. Ugh.. I plan to do it tomorrow during lunch time at work.
Lastly, my mama is here. She saw a cheap return flight deal and decided to make a visit, which is good. Great actually, because it means home cooked meals, a hot cup of tea in the evening (brewed in her way which, however much I tried I couldn’t master it), and other motherly love. I am spending to spend what’s left of my free time with her. Going out for coffee, chatting until we fall asleep and bugging her with questions like “Which characters of dad I resemble?” Her answer, “None, you are like me”, “What family gossips did I miss?”; “I will fill you up during lunch” she said. We went for lunch yesterday, and she did. And it was funny and umm.. ugly, but mostly funny.
With all these things going on I don’t have the energy and time to blog (boohoo me.. I know I know). I will be on hiatus for a short time so I can finish the last minutes preparation for the trip, spend some quality time with my mommy and try to work as much as I could and submit the quarterly report before I go, because you guys, bloggers are accountants too.
Ps. No picture for this post because I don’t have anything in my iPhone that expresses this burned out feeling. I contemplated taking a screen shot of the excel sheet I was working on but I don’t want to be accused distributing company’s (maybe) confidential data. I promise to post lots of pictures of Korea later.
