Pleasure to Pressure
Posted May 27, 2005on:
Jerry flew to Macau last Tuesday and since then, I’ve been driving myself to work, driving from work to Matt’s school after his basketball practice, driving from school to the laundry to pick up our clean clothes and finally driving home. In a day, I drive an average of 2 hours! Wow, that’s just like working in Makati and going home to Paranaque or Las Pinas!
Yesterday was my all time high when I spent a total of three hours on the wheel. It was partly due to rush hour traffic and partly because I had to get the kids from the house and drive all the way back to Crossroads to attend the birthday dinner for my SIL and send-off party for nephew John. It was a pendulous route that got me exhausted right after.
Work has been kind to me so far. If the load stays as it is, then it’s a welcome thing for me. I could get used to this slow pace just as I got used to too much paperwork in my previous job. I’m just a bit unsettled, a nagging thought at the back of my head tells me there could be more than meets the eye. I hope it’s nothing that’s too much to handle.
So going back to the birthday dinner last night, it was held at Big Mao Crossroads. And as expected, the food was great. I’m glad I only took small portions of each kind. And regardless of how little I got, I ended up still satiated.
Ayayay, I’m seriously starting to worry about shedding off these unwanted calories. *Sigh*
