If we were having coffee, I would tell you good morning and thanks for joining me for another lovely weekend chat. Then I’ll pour you some coffee while I’ll have an iced green tea since the temperature is supposed to climb into the mid-90’s today. Yikes!
You see, I’ve taken the advice of fellow blogger, BettyLouise31, and switched to green tea two weeks ago. And guess what, the nightmares stopped and I was able to sleep again. Thank you BettyLouise31.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I once again had a helluva week. It didn’t have much to do that annoying, judgmental, and egotistical COO, the one I mentioned last week. It was the combination of office, personal, and family drama that made the week crazy.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you there were great drama in the office this week. It was better than watching soap opera but going through that myself is definitely not the same and this drama sure brought some devastating results. My co-worker quit and now, I’m set to take her place which include HR and cleaning – sweeping, mopping, washing dishes. I hate cleaning, no, not hate, super duper hate it. Therefore, I pray they’ll remove that from my new job description.
Apparently, the managing director told the egotistical COO to be nicer to me after my co-worker told him I was going to quit last week.
Believe it or not, the same thing happened to another co-worker when he first started working here. The COO was terrible to him but after a weekend of golf, the COO’s attitude toward that co-worker suddenly turned 180-degrees. I believe the same thing is happening to me now and I’m definitely grateful for my co-worker saying something. At the same time, I doubt this niceness will last forever. For now, I’m giving myself three months. If I can survive three months, then I’ll keep going for another three months. If not, I’ll quit. That is it. One can only tolerate so much.
On the bright side, it was so busy in the factory that the COO didn’t get to my weekly bank reconciliation. Whew! I survived a week with little emotional torture from this egotistical maniac.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m saying goodbye to my tablet this week. It suddenly stopped working on Tuesday which made me anxious and twitchy the entire day.
I couldn’t believe after all the fun times we’ve had together in the last four years that it is now heading to its afterlife or wherever computers and tablets go after they die.
I’m going to mourn while I get myself a new tablet. 😢😢😢
I don’t think it’ll ever be the same though. It’s like a first love, you know. Once you lose that, you’ll never look at something the same. I feel a deep fear now because what if I get a lemon? What if the new tablet breaks again? I’m not sure if I can go through that again but that’s technology, right? Ugh!
If we were having coffee, I would also tell you I’m worried about my cousin in China. On Thursday morning, he posted a message in WeChat, a social media tool we use to keep in touch, “Sometimes, I really don’t want to be human.” He posted this message along with a picture of a panda sitting faced to the wall. I quickly replied, “What? Why?” He never replied.
That afternoon which was morning in China, he posted another message, “Insomnia strikes again. I’m feel like I’m have to go into mental asylum.”
I immediately messaged him, “What’s wrong? Are you okay?”
He replied, “Not much, only I can’t sleep.”
“Normally, insomnia is caused when the mind is unsettled. Have you tried meditation?” I wrote. He replied no.
So step by step, I walked him through the steps of meditation and he agreed to try it. Our conversation ended. I didn’t want to bother him but I hope it worked. Seeing my cousin posting messages like that really frightened me because my cousin had been diagnosed with mild case of depression and along with insomnia, it’s not good. So I’m worried about him. Not just worried, really worried and I think my family is worried as well since he’s the only one who will keep the family name going.
I’ll have to call my grandma tonight and ask her for some help with my cousin. I hope she’ll do it. Meanwhile, I’ll pray for his well-being. Please cousin, be well.
Lastly, if we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me and hope I can join you again next weekend.
