A new one. See the header? I conceptualized that! I love it! Thank you to photobucket.com for the images.
I love the rain as you can see. I love life.

Not a Manic Monday

It is not a manic Monday for me. How I hated Mondays before! Well, deciding to have a more positive perspective in live is helping. So, we woke up early. Son went to school and I went to the office.

During office days, my life revolves at the workplace. I have not opened my PC yet when one supervisor approached me reminding me of the task given to me last Saturday. So, even if my shift has not started yet, I tried to finish it. Then our manager saw me and asked me to give her a few minutes of my time. It turned out that she wants me out of her group already! Okay now, do not panic. She told me that I might be interested of an opportunity in another group. Who am I to decline, right? So, I immediately revised a previous letter of intent. Yes, I have tried applying to another group before but my manager discouraged me to pursue those.

I have to let my immediate head to sign the letter of intent. Wrong choice! This supervisor of mine is quite not good in psychologizing a person or letting out words out of her mouth. She stood by my post and said a litany of words saying that I am just wasting the papers because the moment that I would be talked out of it, I will not stand by my decision to transfer… Well, I do not like to explain to her my decisions. Is it not that my decision to stay in the past a decision? I am still the one who makes it and I am standing by it… But, I do not want to dwell on any negative things. I want to become a better person. Maybe, God has plans for me. Maybe I will be a better person in another team. I pray hard. I see it as a blessing… though, honestly, I have not submitted my application yet because it is still stuck with my immediate supervisor. But, if it is God’s will for me to really work in another place, it will be done. Thy will be done.

I went home. Dinner time! Fried tilapia! I love it! I ate around three cups of rice! HA???!!!

Around 12AM, I have to go to sleep.

Day went as planned

Oh, I am writing it just today but I could still recall that beautiful Sunday!
The day went as planned. We woke up earlier as usual to hear the morning mass. We were still late, though and I am not proud of it. Anyways, it was better than not going at all, I guess. I really want going to church to be a priority. God should always be first in our lives, right?

After the mass, we went to Jollibee! My son loves pancakes. He ate four pieces! My favorite is Hotdog meal. My hubs and I had one serving each. Sumptuous!

I had to report for work that day. Thus after eating, off I went to the office. The day was not that taskful at least for our team. Not so many tasks to do. After all, it was a Sunday… we should be resting. That is why I love to work during weekends!

I went home at 9PM. I was already eating dinner by 10PM. After that, I have to go to sleep and prepare for my Monday!

Charity starts at home

After the pandesal with peanut butter breakfast, I decided to take a nap before finally preparing for office. I still have 45 minutes as I must leave home by 10 AM. I went to the bedroom and Hubs followed. Oh, he is such a bug! 🙂

Finally, office time. I was not late at all. As usual, supposedly, it should be slack during weekends but it is the opposite. Those who work during weekends gets the heavier load.

Our schedule for next week was released today.
My team leader is the one who is tasked to do it. To create a good relationship between her and the agents, she opened a free request scheme. We could request for RD and preferred schedule. It is just that, expect that not all the requests will be granted.

I was requesting for a certain rest day and it happened that three people from the other teams also requested for that. My team leader sent me a text message advising me that my request will not be granted… while the other three requests would be? Why should I be the one to sacrifice? Anyways, I still got what I wanted and she slapped it into my face. She said that she begged another agent to give way for me. What???? Is it not that I was not the only one who requested for that RD?

What can I say?

I believe charity should always start at home.

Bed weather

It was raining hard. Certainly a bed weather. Well, yes, I spent almost the whole day, sleeping. At around 6PM, the day seemed just to start. I washed my son’s uniforms.

For dinner, I craved for fried milk fish belly. We ended up having grilled milk fish with lots of tomatoes and onions. It was brought from the market. There are vendors there that sell grilled fishes. Only in the Philippines? It turned out that what my husband bought was still half cooked. That somehow spoiled the supposed enjoyable dinner. After seeing some fish blood, I told Hubs to put the fish first in the microwave so that it will be fully cooked.

We called it a day at around 11PM. Sleeping time once again.

Bank rules

We just had our dinner. Another thing that I am craving for the longest time. Corned tuna! Actually, I had a taste of it last Wednesday when my office mate opened a can for his light dinner. Well, I wanted more. So today, I decided to buy cans of it. Yes, I bought three big cans. The one can was finished at dinner. I think my intestines are stil trying to absorb the fish. I bought Fit and right Pineapple juice too! The dinner was good.

Today is sort of a busy day for me. We went to the bank to deposit the check. The banker told me that I could not deposit it to my husband’s account because the check is under my name. I could not do anything about it. I just deposited it to my payroll account. Bank rules…

After the groceries, I washed some clothes again. Mainly my jeans. I washed five pairs. I still plan to iron clothes that we are going to use for the next few days until my next rest day but that will depend if I still have the energy. I must condition my mind first.

To be honest, I would like to watch my favorite TV show already. Grey’s Anatomy. I watch it online every Friday. Good thing, my schedule tomorrow is not that early. However, as usual, son wakes up at 6AM.

Bye for now and till the next days to come.

Gone with the winds

I was supposed to go to the office today. There was a typhoon that caused brownout in our area . That gave me some migraine and slight fever. Thus, my plan to have a good slate for the month was washed away and gone with the winds.

I am not insured anymore

I got the check today! I am not insured anymore! Oh, please, nobody kill me!

The day started fine. I created this blog. This is actually my post for the day. The first one was just an introduction.

I woke up at around 7Am. Actually at around 6AM, I was already awake since my son has to go to school. I got up at around 7AM. Hubs prepared pandesal with liver spread. I skipped COFFEE. Yeah, no coffee for me today. I did not report for work. I am on vacation leave. I make it a point to take a day off at least once a month aside from my usual rest days.

I began washing the clothes while doing EC drop for my other blogs. Yes, I have other blogs. You will find out soon!

At around 1015Am, my son already arrived from school. He asked for hotdogs! Thank you to microwave cooking. In three minutes, we were all eating hotdogs and pandesal from breakfast. Hubs also bought our favorite soda from the nearby sari-sari store.

We had lunch at around 1AM. After that I began preparing to go to the insurance company where I already surrendered my plan. Yes, I needed the money. Before, we did not know yet what to do with it but after the Typhoon Ondoy that left fear in our hearts, we are decided to use the money for the construction of the second floor of our house.

At around 3PM, I finally got the check. No hurt feelings. I need it. So, I called my husband and asked him to meet me at our favorite panciteria. I went first to the parlor for my pedicure. Wow, first time in years! I think my last pedicure was when my friend got married and that was two years ago? Oh, MY!

At around 6PM, we were having our dinner already. Pancit con lechon, lumpiang shanghai and fried rice. We had Royal Tru-Orange for our beverage. After the hearty meal, we dropped by the nearby grocery store to buy cup cakes for our son’s daily snack in school. As usual, he never forgot his favorite sweet and sour flavored green chips.

Finally we reached home. Time for some bonding while watching TV. After our favorite telenovelas, I decided to call it a day and here I am…

By the way, other highlights of the day were my son’s test papers! Good grades! I am satisfied with his grades this time. His lowest was 85% and you know what subject? LANGUAGE! To think that my son is English speaking, huh! He got a perfect score in three subjects, namely Math, Science and Reading. I wonder if mhy son will be a Scientist someday. As you know, Math is exact science.

Bye for now and til next time. I know I still have November 1 and 2 to write about.

End of Day

As usual at 6AM the clock already tried to wake us all up with its alarm. My son has to drink his bottle of milk then take a bath that early huh! As usual school time! I chose to cuddle the pillow and curl up on bed. Hey, it was a rainy morning! Bed weather, it is. My husband kept on bugging me to get up as I have to go to the bank to deposit the check that I got yesterday.

I finally got up at ten Am. I have to go to the office and be there at 12 PM. I washed the dishes first. Yes, plates since lunch time of yesterday. Imagine that! Finally, I left home at around ten thirty AM.

I arrived at the office on time. Around 1158PM, I guess. I opened my e-mail and there was a report that I processed a task wrongly. That got through me until 7PM before it was finally lifted. I processed it correctly, of course!

I took dinner at around 530 PM at Red Ribbon. I love the Salisbury steak with mashed potato and extra rice. There was Cookies and Cream cake for dessert. I also ate Asado bun. Four Seasons delmonte juice for the beverage. It was a full dinner. Actually, that was my first meal for the day.

Finally, it was 9PM. Time to go? NOT! I still have to send the end of day report. Whoa! It took me two hours to gather all the data and finally send the report thru a text message.

I arrived home at 12 AM. I ate three hotdogs and carbonara.

I guess, I have to call it a day!

Newly colored hair

It is my rest day today! I fought for this day. Well, somehow. I really wanted a rest day today. Well, I do not like to work five straight days in a week. I am not used to it. Ironically, I would be applying for a 9-6 job and if I will be accepted, I have to work five straight days. Anyways, more to that in the coming days if it will be pursued.

As usual, the day started when the phone’s alarm rang. It was time to get up for my son and take a bath for his classes. I also got up. I just wanted to.

After my son’s classes, we went to the bank. It is pay day today! I paid some bills. Then off we went to the mall. Hubs bought a new shaver. I was able to buy another pink undergarment for my bossom. Now, I have three pairs with the same color and design. My son begged for marbles. Lunch was at Jollibee. The usual chickenjoy and extra rice satisfied our stomach. Dinner? We had pizza from Pizza Hut.

My friend called me when I was still in the mall. She told me about the new developments in the office. I am in hot water again. Apparently, my boss thinks that I am asking almost everyone to go out and apply to another group. I did not do that of course. In the first place, I was asked to apply and I did not have any intent at all to leave as of the moment. I am waiting for the PA. Salary is more important to me now than any prestige. After all, I work hard for the money. I work hard so that I could put food at the table. I work hard so that when my son asks me to give him milk, I will be able to. I do not work for anybody else. All I am doing is for my family. That is why, I pray hard too. I ask God to provide. I ask Him to make me a better person. I ask for His strength… for me to be able to always make it each day. I actually lift everything to Him. Lord, kaw na po bahala sa mga Boss ko! I claim it now!

Well, because of that, I decided to dye my hair, all black. I want to look good tomorrow with no flaws at all. My friend said that our Boss would like to talk to me. Wish me luck, guys!
