Makes me smile…..

Rae’s table and chair from Ergoworks arrived and it now sits pretty in her room. The little one has been writing/drawing/reading on it very frequently since its arrival on Friday. I’ve also cleared up some of her things and put up on ebay for sale. As I rolled up the bumper mat on the floor in her room, I was rudely shocked by… fast she has since grown. I can still remember vividly the day Hubba and I got the mat from MotherWorks along with the Hippy seat, and Rae was so small and tiny then. I can even recall the days when I would pick her up from my aunt’s and as she plays on the mat, I had ‘accidentally’ fallen asleep a few times:-P , the mat has also saved her little head from a few nasty falls when she was just starting to get on her fours….

Still in the process of figuring out how to layout her room, carpenter came the other day and had to throw his drawings out of the window, because we had forgotten to inform him about the new purchase and now his drawings (based on old conversation) would not fit in well with the table….poor chap. He’s going to come in again to take a look at the table and will re-discuss with us on possible custom made shelving and cupboards.

MIL and Aunt-in-law has been ‘talking’ to me and Hubba about making the trip to Canada to bring Aunt M home before the winter hits. Spoke to the Boss and she tries real hard to be appear supportive, but her words and comments says otherwise. So torn, I know the family needs me and they are definitely more important then how my Boss will think of me. But, the upcoming events are my babies and I am the only one who can handle them. Well, the only thing I can think of now, is for the family to wait a little and I will pack my bag and kwai kwai make the trip, sans Rae and Hubba. Its a loooooog flight and honestly, even enticing me with Business class tickets did not seem to have much charm. Just hope even with this 1.5week trip, I can still take leave for our own family trip in December.

Carol has left for her China trip with her dad, Angeline is going away to Taipei for work for a whole, entire week. I am left alone back here….no one to chat with me on MSN and no one to go the new scrapbook store at Raffles city with…..many unhappy things have taken place since a week ago,so I am going to be nice to myself and make a trip to the new shop tomorrow.Looking at nice, pretty scrapbook materials makes me smile, and having them all packed into the rectangular brown paper bag ,coming home with me is heavenly. Just the thought of it makes me real happy.

Hope the week ahead will be better for me. And everything will fall in place real soon.

As human beings we can always try to do better. To be better. To right a wrong. Even when it feels irreversible. Of course, I’m sorry doesn’t always cut it. Maybe because we use it so many different ways. As a weapon. As an excuse. But, when we are really sorry, when we use it right. When we mean it. When our actions say what words never can. When we get it right “I’m sorry” is perfect. When we get it right, “I’m sorry” is redemption. ~ Meredith Gray

My heart scan, ECG and trackmill session costed the Boss a whopping S$889……
