My cup of coffee keeping me awake.

Hello all!  This is the wifey checking in – 14 hours without sleep and counting! I feel like a zombie already. The network’s kinda slow so I am able to post this while waiting. Multitasking!

I’ve been swamped with a lot of work the past week that I only get a maximum 6 hours of sleep, sometimes less.  I even had to work this weekend and the longest sleep I had was 12 hours because the husbo was so concerned he refused to wake me up even when I told him so.  He is that sweet!

This is a complicated project I am working on. Yes, all that hours of work for just 1 project.  Put in the other projects I am assigned with and I feel like I am going to die of exhaustion.  But that’s okay, I always keep in mind Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Chris who strengthens me!”  True, it is only by God’s grace and strength that I am still alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic! 🙂

I am sure though that once this project is up and running smoothly as one can expect, I will get some much deserved rest – Lord, vacation please! By the beach if You will. Okay have to go back to work now.  Will be working for another 30 minutes then get some 3 hours sleep and will work again before I leave for the office tonight. o_O


Thinking of Staying At Home

3 Nov

Aargh I woke up late, yet again. I blame the really nice bed weather! LOL!  I am still waiting for the husbo though so we can have dinner together.

I am honestly not in the mood to work.  The more I think about working from home, the more I abhor going to work.  Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the salary and benefits I get, but I can’t help but think that there’s an alternative way of earning without sacrificing time for my family?

Breakfast with the Husbo

3 Nov

I had a pretty busy shift last night.  So busy in fact, that I forgot to take my lunch break.  I went home famished, poor me.  But I choose to see things positively so the no-lunch shift was good because, one, I saved money and two, because it was another opportunity to have breakfast with the husbo.  So I left the office on time.  There were still pending tasks but the husbo comes first before work.  I can always finish those tasks later.  Anyway, breakfast for the husbo today would be Spanish sardines, a pack of skyflakes crackers, one banana and a glass of orange juice.  I didn’t have enough time to cook anymore. Sad.

Ever since last week I’ve been really thinking about that dream to be a full time wife to the husbo.   Continue reading
