Feed the blog

Yes it's been awhile since I had updated my blog and I have to say that it has been my fault as for the past week I was so busy with my work. My wife came back from her holidays from India and she flew out from Chennai and I as usual miscalculated her arrival, thinking that the flight would land as per schedule but the Malaysian Airlines landed 15 minutes ahead of schedule and also she cleared the immigration and customs very fast and I was 15 minutes late. By the way the flight landed at 5.15 a.m. instead of 5.30 a.m. and I was at the airport at 6.10 a.m. So am I to be blamed?

Well since she is back, the home front seems to be in order now but my work front is crazy. I was promoted minus the pay increment and now I have double the work load. Oh...God how I wish the last interview that I had gone to should materialize and I then I can kiss goodbye to this present company. Everyday I am runnng in circles trying to get things done and I don't have the right people nor the "people" in the first place. And I have datelines set like "yesterday" to get things done today.

Tomorrow is a holiday due to "Hari Raya Haji", the muslim festival of sacrifice but it looks like I have to sacrifice my holiday and be at my site office tomorrow to prepare for my meeting with the sub-contractors on Tuesday. So I guess I am the lamb that is being sacrificed at the altar.

Feeding the blog with my problems is not a good option but I have turned into a zombie, from the moment I wake up, walk, talk and eat "work" as the new management that took over the company is driving us with a whip and the "bloody" economy is not helping me as I know getting another job with the same pay is nearly impossible. Looks like I have to bear with this hardship and be that lamb as I had mentioned earlier.

Like they say "Life is no bed of roses".....

Well, if you are the lamb, then at least your wife is there to cook it. Was she angry about the airport pick-up delay?

Good to have you back and blogging, though.

lol...I like roast lamb...

She was angry for the delay as she called me from the airport and snapped at me....and I didn't know where to park the car...at the pick up area or the basement carpark ...as she didn't tell me where she was waiting...she was just angry that I was late...

So how are things at Mumbai...

if the flight was supposed to land at 5.30, then you should have been there at 5.15...arriving at 6.10 is simply not doable...now you know the wrath that my hubby must be facing at home :)

scribbler@I got up at 4 a.m. and I drove from my house at 5.00 a.m calculating the time it takes to land and clear the immigration and customs...unfortunately the flight landed early and also my wife told me that the flight was practically empty, that's why she was cleared early. Mind you after that I had to get her breakfast and then rush off to work...

Btw Thanks for the award...

I guess a little waiting is ok...as when I fly back I usually take the cab home...

This is the perpetual problem i always hear from my H also..not getting right people for the work:)
keeping ur wife waiting, when she is coming back after a gap.....If I am kept..I wont like it either:)

sukku said...

Renu@ Life is like a Hell Hole for me with all the work load but sometimes I guess it is better to be running around in circles rather then not having any circles to run around...

You are right on my mistake in keeping my wife waiting...

Thanks for dropping by...

Hmmm nobody likes to wait...but still its not ur fault that the flight came early;-D.

Yes try not to make major changes in ur life now with this recession going on. Just play the waiting game...better the devil u know than the devil u dont:-P

sukku said...

Well thank you...I'm glad you are understanding...

Yes I think it is not a right time to jump...but if the offer is good...I may reconsider...just waiting for the call
