rough week...make it weeks

dear mazi,

gosh, it's been ages since the last time i made an entry. but anyway, this one will be short. i just want to air out this bad weeks that have happening with me and your mom. no, don't get me wrong, it is not our relationship, it is related to work, our respective jobs and some more. the relationship's been always better if not great.

i am just in an unenviable position at work due to some "issues" with nasty stuff, you know, things that people do that hurts not just one but the whole. but that kind of activities where they will somehow end up in jail. well, anyway, i was beating myself up for not discovering it earlier and had the company suffer for more than a year. if it had been caught earlier, we wouldn't have to write off millions of dollars. oh well. i just felt that i was not able to really show them that i am really good at my job. but you know, i have to move on, just like what my boss has told me. so....that's it.

mom's having issues with her tax and work. hopefully, it will get sorted out pretty soon as it might affect our financials. the work side, hopefully, something or an opportunity will come up close to where we live so that she can move closer to home and be happy again with her job. it is just a constant and daily struggle for her to go to work. of course, if i have a way, or if we are earning more than enough, maybe mommy does not need to work and just take care of you everyday. but things are different here. so, let us not give more headache and stress to mommy, ok? let's just be with her and make her laugh all the time.

as you know, we try to avoid bringing issues like this at home coz it certainly affects our daily lives. don't worry mommy and daddy are trying hard to do the best they can so we can have a happy home!!!!

we love you.

dear mazi,

we had a blast trick or treating with your friends, that is for sure! this year was a bit different from previous halloween celebration we had. this time, you requested that you will be with your friends from school instead of going to your cousins' house and their friends. we were actually surprised that you wanted to do it your way this time. imagine, weeks before you already had it planned with your friends, you know, the slumber party and the trick or treating together.
so hey, mommy and i are not complaining, whatever works for you! so, this year, you wanted to be a scary vampire!! it worked quite well. you wore your costume in school the whole day. then, in the evening, we went with you and your friends to do trick or treating to the neighboring houses/apartments. daddy wore a somewhat a-scary red mask while mommy was in her purple wig. it was sooo much fun. i decided to join you and your friends from asking treats to the neighbors. i had a blast. imagine, i got the same amount of candies and chocolates as you are.
so, all in all, it was great. later that night, we went back home and asked some family friends to come over for some drinks.
it was all good. til next year!! let's see what costumes we are gonna be wearing then.



Days Inn is OUT!!!

dear Mazi,

guess what happened to me last night? well, i'm here in saskatoon since monday for my regular visit of the branch here. last week, i tried to book my accommodation in the usual hotel/s i normally stayed in. unfortunately, all of these hotels are fully booked for the week. so, i ended up booking at days inn for the first time. i tried to read the feedback about the hotel and seemed ok, so i proceed. i agreed that i'll be moving rooms on the 3 nights that i am at the hotel since on the second night, they dont have an available non-smoking room.

monday night came, i was ushered to my room. it looks ok. you would have loved the pool though as they have a nice run-around slide and a nice jacuzzi. i didnt try it though coz i was too tired. i was informed by the front desk that i can leave my luggage the following morning to them so they'll just move it to the new smoking room assigned to me. i did not leave my luggage the following morning as i dont trust them well enough.

anyway, the night came and i went back to the hotel, lo and behold, they cancelled my reservation and was told that there was no room for me. HUH?!!! obviously, my being "antipatiko" and "stand up for my right" attitude came out again!! they heard good words from me, so of course they relented and provided me a room. it is on a smoking room, no luck for a non-smoking one. well, i'll take it coz i dont want to sleep on the road. heh!

my gosh, i will never stay in a smoking room ever again!! i think i was only able to sleep for about a few hours. getting up in the middle of my sleep coz of breathing problems. my eyes seemed puffy and my nose keeps on clogging. its like being put in a smoking chamber... im exhagerating, of course, but you get the drift.

that was so unhealthy. that room really sucks. i mean who could sleep or stay in such a room? so, for all of you out there, NEVER EVER stay in a smoking room. and for those who smokes, PLEASE PLEASE SMOKE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. you are not doing any good to yourself and to other people!!

so there, that is my rant for the day!!

oh ok, tonight is my last night in the hotel. i will be staying in a non-smoking room, thank God!

there you go,
