I am sure you will understand how busy I am these days. I have to take it upon myself how I can balance everything. Work during the weekdays and kids and household chores during the weekends. I still have readings that remain pending even if it's the end of January.
But of course, I cannot help to leave you hanging without any updates from me. This coming Monday, we will be turning over a new leaf. A new regional director comes and so a new boss for me. I hope she's kind and understanding. but I sure hope she's firm and somehow strict too.
My husband is also very busy, his new boss has been driving them nuts with trainings and all, and he is being enslaved to keep/manage their system.
But nevertheless, all things work together for good. I have a good talk with a senior superior who gave me some realizations with work. She told me that because I am with the department now, busy days are soon to come, but I have to bring balance to life, or else, my kids will no longer know me. I realized she's right, I have to weigh weekend activities if they are worth attending, or stay with my kids. She also gave me this piece of advice: If your kids want to tag along with you, bring them, for there will come a time that even though how much you want to bring them along, they will not come with you.
I guess she's right.
And one more thing she gave me: Always keep those drawings of your kids. There will come a time they will no longer draw for you. And a time will come when your kids will not stay with you, and you will remain feeling alone. So that time with your kids, consider them precious.
