After the drought comes the rains.  The windfall tided me through.

I finished my pre-work and it is ready for submission subject to one quick pass to the Quality Awarding Body. 

We got our visas.  ED got multiple entry while MD, OS and I got single entry visas.  We’re good to go.  Except for one, I have booked accommodation in places along our itinerary.  This is one trip I am looking forward to.

A number of activities happening simultaneous.  I’m overwhelmed at times but we can get through these.  Everything seems to be set for the upcoming event.

After a few misses and hitches, I was able to file our application for visa.  Even on the day I filed it, there was one hitch I had to deal with.  MD had to go home on a weekend she wasn’t supposed to because she missed signing her passport.

I am glad to see a change in S’s dealing with us.  I truly hope that she prove herself to be an asset and that I was right choosing her over other equally qualified applicants.

The second of our major event is turning out to be another blockbuster.  We hit almost 97% of target attendees and we’re two weeks away.  The only concern is if the over target attendance to our activities won’t eat up our entire budget.  We’re not even halfway through the year. 

K is back.  No more dishwashing for moi, H and OS.  Our grocer who missed supplying our food provision was ecstatic because our marketer is back.  

I’ve prepared all the documents needed for our travel.  I’ve filed the request for the needed certificates which is the only thing lacking.  In time, I’ll complete all pre-travel requisites. 

Totally clean slate.

The first of our major event was a success based on the turnout.  What was supposed to be a 75 pax event ballooned to 100 pax.  The speakers delivered and we had an engaged audience.

With an out of town activity, I was more prompt than late this week.

My dogs got their anti-rabies shots for free courtesy of the local veterinarian of our city and his staff who went to our home to administer the shot.  What more, I will be accommodated in the same way next year and hopefully in the next years.

Things are falling in place with our first major roadshow.

An unexpected opportunity to promote our services that resulted in clamor for briefing sessions with pledges of financial support.

Curry’s Legacy

Curry died too soon early evening yesterday. She was ran over by a car driven by a new neighbor. H’s curt text message didn’t tell the whole story. I learned it bit by bit from our helper, a neighbor and later the man responsible for her death.

I was wrapping up things at the office when I learned the sad news. I wasn’t myself for the entire trip going home, too stressed out dealing with another loss. I haven’t even come to terms losing Missy and Hershey in succession, February of last year.

I got most of the deals I want to get with nary a word from AB including tapping an external speaker for the forthcoming event which was initially rejected.  Slowly, I am feeling that the team is being integrated to the group by sheer insistence on some things.

I rescued 3 kittens which I think are orphans judging from their dirty fur.  A kitten with a mom would be clean.  They seemed to be happily settled at home.  I caught a glimpse of them eating.  They’ve been eating.  Must be very hungry from their ordeal.  Well, they’re safe now.
