Random thoughts .. Piece of my journal

It has been a while since the last time I posted anything. I can't really think of anything specific to write about, other than the fact that the last couple of weeks passed way too fast and were kind of loaded, I managed to have 4 days away from work though, taking a day off between Christmas holiday and weekend. I was kind of forced into taking that day off , since the HR announced , that any left over vacation since 2005 should be taken , otherwise , they will be gone with the wind the moment 2007 starts ! And since I am the type of person, who does not know how to take random days off – call me crazy, but seriously, I don't feel a vacation is worthy, unless well planned to be spent somewhere else ! – So I still had a couple of days from the year 2005.

I spent a whole four days away from work stress , did not even dare to check my work email , since I did not want anything to disturb this inner peace I was feeling , being totally relaxed , away from stress , numbers , figures , proposals to be prepared , purchase orders to wait for , reports before the end of the year , customers queries to be answered , excuses to be made for out of hand delays and staying late to finish pending issues and going over it with the manager. So I had a nice little vacation , went shopping a bit , watched TV , read a bit , worked out , went in family visits and of course slept as much as I can .

I got back to work yesterday, and I feel that I am kind of being punished for having that day off, because of the amount of work that should be finished now! I was planning to take Thursday off too, now I am not quiet sure if this will work out, I need to be done with so many things. Everybody wants to close this year, wrap things up, calculate budgets for next year and start fresh and clean in 2007 .And you know something; I still find it weird that 7 years have passed since the starter of the new millennium, time passes REALLY fast.

That was random diary type post, its probably boring, but who said diaries should always be interesting to read !

Enjoy the rain.. I think I have to go back to work and I'll plug my headphones , listen to some Arabic oldies , they always work perfectly with rainy weather .. don't you think so ?

Oldies are always good, not only for rainy days...have a good day!

I think TWICE before taking days off... actually i hardly take any days off- and every year I end up with at least 10 days not yet taken from my annual off days! And it's very true... taking days off means a HEADACHE When you're back.. it's horrible! Good luck...

Thanks Summer :) .. I know how cloudy sky can be depressing, but on the other hand , we did not have a cloudy sky for a long time .. change is good .. but its freezing here , been snowing all day .. brrrrrr !

YES 7ala .. work piles up :S and we end up feeling guilty for taking that single day off .. but you know what :) it worked out and I am taking tomorrow off too :) .. 3o2balek ya 7ala ..

I love reading diaries too Reem:) , I enjoy them ! I hope you were able to listen to some , I left a website for you on your blog ..As for work .. i7em .. I share the feeling every time I get loaded with stuff to finish .. hehehe .. having endless vacation .. sounds like fun .. but I am sure I'll get bored at some point .. eah ..

Actually .. that was a typo Dar :) I meant since 2005 , I'll correct it on my post . LOL saneh kamleh ! ya rait .. next year I'll be having 28 days off gathered from 2006 and the upcoming 2007 .. I am planning to spend them in something fun .. inshallah :) !

I know what you mean Dima *sigh*.. but you know what , sometimes we need the days off .. and work should wait for us .. we are human after all , and we really need the time away from our daily routine .. thank you for the good luck wish :)
