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.
