two absences in a row

Posted on Apr 01, 2009 under blahs, my thoughts with infos |

Been a very lousy worker for the past days. I almost always cannot complete a work week without being absent! Dang! I’m a perfect candidate for downsizing should it happen. Opps! Knock on the wood for that…

Last Monday, i left the office earlier than usual because I was gonna go to a friend’s house. Have to send her and her family off, they’ll be leaving for Spain the morning after. I didn’t sleep for one, i might just get migraine if i’d sleep then wake up in the next 2 hours. Second, i usually sleep in the wee hours of the morning so sleeping at around 1:00am is not feasible. I could help her pack some of their things but she prefers packing alone. Wise idea since it would be easier for her to track where she’d put her things. So, off we went to the airport at almost 4:00am. Their flight is at 5:00am. I try not to cry because everyone will cry. LOL! I had my crying moments during the farewell party anyways. I was with her mother, brother and cousin by the way.

We grabbed some breakfast after then went back to their house to finish packing. Some of their things are to be airshiped yet. I went home around 8:30 and put myself to sleep. I woke up at almost 2:00pm nursing severe headache and backpains. And that left me being absent from work for the rest of the day. I just watched TV and saw this sad news about firms closing and workers suffering from Mesothelioma cancer and how badly they need the government’s help. Tsk!

I better not be absent for the next few days or else i’m doomed! Hehe!
