First Day at Work

Yes. I'm again on work mode. Since Monday. And already busy.

I spent almost my whole day in our conference room on my first day. 9:30am to 1:30pm talking about strategies on how to decrease production cost. 2:30pm to 5:00pm talking about a new project I'll be working on. My wonderful bosses filled up time slots in my outlook calendar even before I arrived. The big boss was even reminding me that he needed to talk to me on another subject but that could still wait till next week. What a day! I missed the traditionnal morning and afternoon café where almost everybody gather in a small room sipping their hot coffee or tea talking about all kinds of nonsense except work.

The next day, Tuesday, my supposed-to-be meeting at 10:00am was luckily cancelled and moved to Thursday. I had time deleting and reading unimportant messages. Important messages were kept aside thinking I'll have time today at home to read some messages (I won't work every Wednesdays to take care of my kids). But nah, I have too much stuffs to do at home too. It's now 4:00pm here and I haven't opened my work laptop yet. I'll try later when the kids are in bed (they're now taking a nap), I need to prepare my meeting tomorrow.

Going back on my first day, it's funny how my colleagues greeted me. After the usual beso beso followed by classic new year greetings like bonne année, bonne santé and meilleur voeux, almost all of them striked a quick glance on my tummy and said nothing. Mga usi, lol.

PS: Picture on the left is the only picture of me last Christmas. I'm always behind the cam. Don't be fooled tho. Remember a lot of years ago when Baguio was hit by an earthquake? Where roads and buildings were heavily cracked and damaged? Let's say it was intensity 7.6 on the Richter scale. My abdomen looks like it was hit by an intensity 8. Heavily cracked and damaged.

Francesca, lol, that's exactly what my boss told me, i look prettier each time i come back after a maternity leave, aba e pag ganyan, dadagdagan ko pa nga ang tribu ko nyan hehe.

Keith, thanks ;). Happy new year to you too.

Haze, lol, wag mo naman apihin sarili mo, you look fit din naman a.

Gracita, that's to hide the true identity of Santa from Louna but I guess the lil girl discovered it anyway, not that day but afterwards, she starts to tell me now that Santa was her Papa!

Pinaymuminoz, lol, batukan yan!

IA, yep, a bit too busy. I still need to find the right balance between work and family.

It's hard to imagine how just a few posts ago you were talking about staying home/on leave for Kyla. And now you're back at work! Wow, time flies so fast indeed.

Don't worry about the 'heavily cracked' tummy. Time will heal it, too. Ikaw pa, you were so sexy when you were pregnant. :)

lovelyn said...

Life is not fair talaga hahaha! You're sexier than evah... unlike moi, the Richter scale broke, it can't contain what pregnancy did to me hehehe...

joanne said...

Regardless of the cracked and damaged tummy, you still look svelte:)

Francesca said...

no news , no good news?

julie said...

Waaah, sana ganyan din ako, not forever looking buntis :(

Fully booked agad ang beauty mo, ano ba yan, full steam ahead.

Heart of Rachel said...
