The prototype for our new collateral material is complete and I’m pleased.  

The chat with my friend S… I’m happy we are able to still confide in each other despite the distance.  That I can help my friend S…. forget her situation.  I miss her and giving her time to make her smile is the next best thing to actually seeing her.

New collateral material unleashes my artistic side.  I’s glad to have infected my team with my artistic ‘virus.

Presentation to the Judges was a breeze.  We’ve set the SV.  The team seems to be getting cohesive.  Thanks to respect for each other’s situation.  The other lady member and I bonded when she gave me a ride going back home.

Met up with friends I see rarely these days.

Gabby whelped two beautiful puppies.  Sadly, the first one didn’t make it and later another one crossed.  We have to help Gabby take care of the remaining puppy.

Used my unexpected break for some me time and pampered myself a little.  Did my routine body check and it seems things are stable.  Got myself an appointment for my travel document.  Found a real nice bargain inner apparel in a new fave brand.

Two important documents were signed by the big and bigger bosses.  We were expecting a hurdle in one document but to our pleasant surprise, nothing like that happened, and the big boss signed without a whimper.

A promo activity came unexpectedly…. we are nearer our goal.

The AB seems to fancy my writing, he asked me again to write something he urgently  needed and said what needed to be said.  It didn’t deter him that I wasn’t originally not part of the work and that he could have asked someone from those originally working on it with him to write that reply to a bigger boss’s concern.  He chose me and delivered the message through his assistant to which I requested the same assistant to relay to the AB my questions that teeters on my surprise on why I am suddenly involved.  But then again, I decided early on, I have to be kind to be treated with kindness.  So I wrote that apt reply which delighted the AB as he rushed to send it to the bigger boss.

The bigger boss also seem to favor us… and we are getting the deals we want that were initially put in the back burner.  Our last promo collateral is given a new lease on life and I am excited 

Celebrating the birthday of a dear friend I have not seen in a while…

The messenger video call with my good friend, S…  I’m happy to learn that the stepson of our friend, M, visits her every two weeks and bakes for her.   She’s in high spirits from the way she looks and sounds.  Even if she’s far, I’m glad that I can make her laugh when we talk about nonsense and mundane things like even how we want to leave this world….

Another big event up our sleeves.  The team worked cohesively and unrelentlessly to make it a success.  I think it was an impressive show of how an event should be done with miniscule resources.  The outcome rewarded the effort of the team.  The bigger boss, as a result, wanted another event before the year ends.  On the fringes, I was able to sweetly ‘coerced’ the bigger boss to approve a promotional material that he doesn’t normally allow.

Reconnecting with a good friend, L, with whom I can let my hair down and have a lot of fun.  We were classmates at a long-term program and were part of a group of friends who went our separate ways after we finished our training but remained friends through social media.  It’s been eons that we’ve not seen each other.  I recall the last time we were together and she lent me her shoulders to cry on.  Much has happened to both of us compared to our old selves.  She has risen in the ranks.  I am into a number of things.  But we still are the silly ladies who can laugh at ourselves for the silly stuff we do.  L once forced us to watch a movie she thought was a good ….. which turned out to be a low budget old war movie replete with cannons, guns and ‘improbable’ battles and we laughed all throughout the movie to the dismay of the handful of viewers.  Our reunion was no different from the past.  I have not laughed till I cried for as long as I can remember.  L was laughing as she tells me her face hurts from laughing too.  It felt good until I left her after I slept over in her dorm.  We said we should see each other again and I can sleepover again.  I think it’s going happen soon.

I finished the report for my assessment work after many sleepless nights and submitted it at last!  

I met my assessment team for the first time during the industry briefing conducted by an official of an organization I assessed.  Since everyone’s working, we agreed to have lesser F2F meetings and more online meetings.  

A beautiful wedding that made me reunite with a long lost friend whom I have not seen for at least 30 years.
