You know how I said earlier in the year that I’d like to rewind and re-start the year? Well, I’ve changed my mind. I just want to fast forward to 2013.
Because 2012 doesn’t seem to be getting better.
Some of you may have noticed I’ve been blogging a lot. Now the last time I blogged a lot was when I kinda had nothing much in my life apart from work. And yes, a similar thing has happened currently. At a time when all my friends and acquaintances from school and college back in India are getting married (let’s not worry whether it’s a choice or not here), I chose to end my relationship. No, it hasn’t sunk in yet. But I think it’s for the best. There have been problems for a while and some of them were unworkable. It occurred around the time I wrote this poem.
Work has been crazy busy and in a weird way managing to keep me sane. We have had two people quit and one other go on maternity leave. Leaving just two full-timers and a couple of part-timers. Oh the joy! Which means M and I are probably going to be doing the bulk of the work. Oh and I don’t know why but I put my hand up to doing a couple of presentations in June. And I still don’t have a specific topic to present on. This will be a presentation to school counsellors and other health professionals. What the hell was I thinking?!
And that’s not all! I am going to be on leave for a few weeks in May. Why? Because the family is coming over. Yep. Mum, dad and the sister are all coming over. And while that’s great, it’s also stressful at some level. There is going to be a week when I have to leave the kitties with a friend (bless her!) while I go away with the family. My choice would have been to stay home. But oh well.
Financially I’m not doing great at the moment either. Will resume flatmate-hunting once the family has left. I stopped the search once I found out they were coming because it wouldn’t be fair to a flatmate.
On top of that, Pebbles and Buttons were both infested with fleas this past week and despite applying the flea medication, there seemed to be a lot in the house to the point where I got bitten in bed. Gah! So today I have cleaned and cleaned and hopefully de-fleaed the house. Fingers crossed.
I also found out last month or so that I am deficient in iron and Vitamin D. So it’s supplement time and time to change my diet. And while I am grateful for the long weekend, I also have 5 reports I have brought home from work to complete. Because I haven’t actually had time at work to do them.
All I want to do is sleep and wake up when the year ends. 2013 has got to be better than this!
I’ll leave you all with something slightly more positive. A picture of my babies:
Until next time,
