Today - It feels like everybody takes it for granted that I could attend a last minute meeting that lasted for 5 damn hours.
Today - I realize that more often than not people think that what I have to do is not as important as what they have to do.
Today - I realize that people think that I have all the time in the world to do things for them.
Today - I realize that I always take it for granted that everything will always go according to plan. But, obviously it doesn't.
I was supposed to focus on a certain piece of work from 11:00a.m until 6:00p.m today.
But, this morning poor Hilman woke up with a terrible cough. Apparently he has croup and he has been coughing incessantly since morning.
I had to leave him at Mak's for a while as I had to attend a meeting at 9:00a.m.
Went back at 10:30a.m to fetch and bring Hilman to see Dr. Mu*a at 11:15a.m. and we only got all the prescribed medicines and only left the hospital at 1:00p.m.
Went back to the office at 1:15, only to be told that there was a last minute urgent meeting that I had to attend.
The meeting lasted for 5 hours. FIVE DAMN HOURS!
Went back - exhausted.
Had to send Hanna to Tuition at 7:45p.m.
Poor Hanna. I was so stressed out that I snapped at her when she asked me if she could go to the MPH Warehouse Sale.
I gave her a curt, "NO!"
And she asked, "Why?"
Another curt reply from me - "Who's going to bring you there?"
She replied - "You?"
And yet another curt reply of "I don't have time", from me.
And I felt so, so bad after that :(
Tonight - I will not be sleeping as I need to finish whatever it is that I was supposed to finish this afternoon.
Tonight - I need a lot of luck. And a LOT of coffee...
And tomorrow, I will make it up to her...
But, you know what? Whatever it is that I've written here - things are not going to change. People will still take me for granted... And I will still have a lot of "stressed out" days ahead of me to deal with.
