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.

The break from the monotony… the commune with nature.  I was so amazed with the hotel’s organic farm that I happily shared my findings with H when I got home. I think I would try hydrophonics and make the move to vertical gardening in my next landscaping project.

The last of the series of workshops proved to be the spark that made the participants finally bond.  We had fun spending time with them shopping and dining in the second to the last night.

Going home was my high for the week.  I was so groggy, I slept the whole day.  I haven’t slept that long in decades.  I felt rested.  

Celebrating MD’s birthday with the family complete and MB and family joining us would be the penultimate high.

Our major event for the year went very well.  New as he is to the role, the bigger boss facilitated the meeting like a pro.  Everything that needed to be settled was settled.  Generally, the staff delivered.  I think I handled my role well.  We got support from one of my peers.  AB, as useless, was his old self, lost, detached and busy amusing himself.  While the rest of the team delivered nicely, R can’t get any worst, bungling a simple job.  With some things needing improvement, the conduct of the event was very well-executed.  Great teamwork!  

Getting excited with the travel planning.  I think I can do this as a livelihood.  

More early than late but had to leave office earlier than usual to meet up with friends I haven’t seen in ages.  We had a pleasant time laughing over a recent incident involving another friend from our circle over palatable dinner.

One post published.

Ja… spread her wings on her first try as a speaker able to impart the complete picture.  There were some discomfort on a topic new to her but overall she did well.  I was happily the able assistant to her coming out.

Finished one travel post.

The most awaited briefing for the bigger boss finally happened.  Stretching my hoarse voice to be audible, I made a presentation to him and his staff.  I also made sure that he will be available to chair an important meeting to be held later this month that was postponed last year because of his unavailability.  Engaged with the big boss at the same time as the presentation, he tried to be as attentive as possible and asked relevant questions.  He also confirmed that he will make it to the important meeting.  

The big family adventure has become a reality.  I would have to do double time on the travel planning.
