A Hard Day's Night

It has been a pretty tiring day for me. In fact everyday has become a pretty tiring day for me these days. Ever since I joined this business partnership, I'm perpetually tired.

I woke up this morning to the sounds of my car dying on me just as I was about to send the boys to school. The bloody car refused to crank and after some unsuccessful attempts at trying to get it started, I told the boys to start walking to school cos they weren't going to be chauffeur driven today.

Of course that elicited a round of grumbling from them about how far school was. And no, their school really isn't that far away. It's just a short 10 minute walk but kids being kids, they grumbled no doubt.

Since the mechanic wasn't open, I had to wait till round 9.30am then take that 10 minute walk myself to his shop and get one of his men to help me out. Suffice to say he got the car working and it cost me a small fortune to fix it. Good hard earned money down the drain ... siggghhh ...

No doubt I can claim the repairs but owning your own company and claiming from yourself somehow doesn't feel quite right ... LOL! I just hope the car doesn't act up again cos I skipped my running session today. I was too disheartened by the car incident to run. I didn't even bother searching for that wholesale t-shirt printing company I was looking for. All I did was head upstairs and continued sleeping until it was time to head to the mechanics.

I really need to take a holiday one of these days. I've been working like crazy the past four months and coupled with the daily running I do every morning, that by the time I get home in the evenings I'm all exhausted. All I can do is just take my bath, have dinner, surf for a little while and by 10pm, I'm practically falling asleep. I don't even have the energy to watch TV.

I remember back when I was working on my own from home, I had loads more time on my hands and wasn't this tired or stressed out by days end. Of course I didn't have to worry about staff and office stuff back then. It was just me and myself. There's much more responsibility involved when you take your business to a slightly bigger level.

I suppose once things really settle down and the staff that I have can work more independently I would be able to breathe a little bit easier and the stress and exhaustion levels would go down ... at least I hope it will. I also hope that by the end of the year, we would have made enough profits for me to edge nearer to my dream of driving that beemer :D

  3. Another blog title that makes me wanna sing. Anyways, I've been trying to jog during fasting month. My friends thought I was crazy but I manage to jog 2 rounds, cutting down to 1 round. Maybe I should do 1 half round, that will satisfy me coz I want to sweat a lot regardless the whole fasting thing.

    Anyways, 10 mins walk to school is nothing! Punya best tu walking to school. I'd owez walk with my friends during high school. And I'd walk during college too. 20 mins walk to be exact. Fun times. No wonder I'm so slim that time. XD
