The weather is not helping...

It's amazing...

I thought there was only so much moisture that the clouds could retain... But, it has not stopped raining for more than 24 hours here in KL.

And this is NOT helping me at all with my current emotional mode : DEPRESSED.

So, much work. So, many things on my mind. So, many things unsettled. So little time.

How I wished there was more than 24 hours in a day.

But, then again, even if there were 100 hours in a day, I don't think I could ever finish doing everything that needs doing.

I pray that the new maid could do wonders and unload a lot of stuff off my mind, insya Allah.

I look forward to next Tuesday.

I hope I will have some peace of mind (which I REALLY need now) come next week, insya Allah.

Thank you, Ayah...

For bearing with me. For being there for me. For understanding. For not pushing.

Brother Id,

Thanks. Yes, I need some good order back in my life. And I need the sun badly to add some cheers to my otherwise monotonous and draining routine lately.

Have been too bogged down with work at the office and at home... Rasa tak menang tangan. And the school holiday is not helping at all - logistics issues, etc.

Yes, you're right - Ayah has been wonderful. If not, sure I dah masuk hospital...

Ayah said...

Mommy dear...

I know u r at the critical stage of ur work and there is so much to do but so little time. I believe the dark clouds will go away very soon and there will be sunshine after the rain (macam liriks lagu pulak!). Things can only get better.

U always thrive under pressure...and I know this for a fact. Just hang in there, dear...

Keep shining..keep smiling... :)

Shana,
One of those moments, kan? same thing here.. millions of stuff to do and so limited the time.
Hang in there... Tuesday is what, three days away.
Take care

SitiNur said...

Good luck with your new maid. Fingers cross!

WANSHANA said...

Thanks Ayah.

That was then...this is now.

Umur dah A'sar ni - energy dah kurang sikit, and my priorities are different. Thriving under pressure might not ring true anymore, you know...

But, I'll try, of course.

WANSHANA said...

Mior,

Thanks.

Yup - 2 days away aje to Tuesday.

But, we have to "overhaul" the maid's room today coz' the room dah tak de rupa bilik dah!!!

Have to clear the timbunan Gunung Kinabalu of unironed clothings out of there (among other things), and make it presentable for the maid by Tuesday...

There goes my Sunday...

Sigh...

WANSHANA said...

Sitinur,

Thanks, dear...

I REALLY hope the maid is reliable and independent - can work around the house without being told on what to do, etc.

Most importantly, trustworthy and good with kids - rare species nowadays!

IBU said...

Shana,

Don't you dare give up!

Err...on losing weight ... that can be an exception. Hehehe ...

Hang in there, gal!

WANSHANA said...

Dear Ibu,

Errrr....losing weight tu, dah lama dah gave up puuunnnn...

I will try to finish the marathon, insya Allah. But, all my energy seemed to have been sapped out the last couple of months. Have to revitalize I guess...

You pun - don't you dare give up, okay?!!

Take good care of yourself, dear.

Hi Kak Shana, how r u. Stumbled upon ur blog today lunch time. Be strong, ur almost there. I know exactly what u mean by "umur dah A'sar". I feel exactly the same way. I have exams coming up next year, both mind and body NOT willing. Mind over matter? Wish it is as simple as that. Nevertheless we plod on and strive, InsyaAllah the reward comes later. Salam to Abg H, Us from Sheffield

SayangUmmi (Mu**i Iq**l, I presume?) :)

Salams, dear. Thanks for hopping by :D

Something funny happened la...I moderated your comment, thinking that it was meant for my "You Raaawwwwkkk" posting. I was perplexed when it didn't appear there! Rupa-rupanya kat sini...Hehehe!

YES - have to plod on...

PLOD...PLOD...PLOD... Sigh...

All the best for your exam. My prayers are with you.

sayang ummi said...

Yes it is us.....

Hope you and family are keeping well. Hope not too late but our BIGGEST congratulations to Hanna on her UPSR results. It is a BIG thing.....by the way, I'm a BIG Jamie fan too. At the moment kids are going crazy for his sticky goooeey brownies. I've had to make one batch every other day!!

Uhmmm didn't realise Ayah is a rocker wannabe. I couldn't agree with you more about getting to know what our children likes. Struggling with my eldest as he cannot get enough of football!!! Kesian dia sebab I know nothing about football, so cannot have a decent conversation with him. Everyday he waits patiently for his Ayah to come home.

Must learn more about football....! Hahaha!!!

sayang ummi said...

Yes it is us........

Didn't realise ayah is a rocker wannabe.....cool!!

Will come and visit u here every now n again.....keep well and we'll get there.

Thanks for your prayers....will need it next year. Hope not too late to congratulate hannah, well done to her!! UPSR is a big thing, your first ever big exam of your life really......until you realise you'll never get rid of them for the rest of your life!!! UHmmm sorry not very optimistc am I? hehehe! Take care!!!

WANSHANA said...

Dear Sayang Ummi,

Thank you - will convey your congratulatory wishes to Hanna, insya Allah.

Hmmmm....football?! I, too am not into it. Thank God Hilman is NOT a footie fan (YET?!). If eventually he finds his passion in watching 11 men chasing that round thingy all over the field, he, too will just have to wait for his Ayah to talk about it. (If rugby, I can still appreciate it, though, especially with all the England team hunks! Hahaha!)

You have THREE potential footie fan, my dear... Good Luck with them! :)

I have the utmost respect for moms who BAKE for their kids. Sticky gooey brownies?! Sounds yummylicious! The only brownies my kids get to eat are those I BELI from Secr*t Re**pe... Hehehe!

Take care, dear.
