I Love You, Sabado


Today, I am hopping on the delightfully de-stressing linky of  Maxabella for some introspection.

I am grateful this Saturday for three things.

1. Staying in Shape

We have a very small team. So if there’s only one person out on vacation, and more so if one gets sick (because that is unplanned and unexpected), you can really feel its effect on the entire team.

This week, one is sick because of dengue, one because of flu, two because of LBM, and another one because of severe stomach pain.

I remain standing.

2. A Flood, No, An Avalanche of Work

We are just so swamped that the joke in the office is for us to invest in oxygen tanks. We’re so tired we’re literally running out of air. The workload is unusually heavy as it is, and amidst people getting sick in the office, the situation in the office is just crazy.

But work is work. And in this country, when you are swamped, you are blessed.

3. Crazy People

It is so easy, and so tempting actually, to just throw a fit and be cranky this week. Instead, the energy in the office is high. And happy ;-D

Now, it is Saturday. There's still a lot of work to do through the weekend. But I am home with my husband and my daughters, and I am grateful.

I love it Tey! Especially the line, that if you are swamped in this country, you are blessed. Now THAT is perspective!

Glad you survived not getting sick and now can enjoy your family on your days 'off'.

That's wonderful news, even though I know how hard it must be to keep going. Exhausting but keep going! x
