Lazy Girl

Monday ... back to work supposedly. But I extended my glory day just one more. Still reeling from that warm, cozy, happy, lazy feeling from yesterday.

And no thanks to my husband's indulgence, instead of pushing me to work, he called our company's sick hotline on my behalf... 

("Hi, this is the husband of MJ, with agent ID # so and so. She can't come to work today because she's sick ..." (and tired of her job) {omitted} ha, ha!

One Fine Day

Last Sunday (Feb. 25) was by far the best day in my life this year. No, nothing special to celebrate about. It was just an ordinary day that we turned extra-ordinary special.

You see, after days of experiencing stomach flu symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, body pains, fever, etc.), my family has just had about it. (I said symptoms coz we never really knew if what we had was stomach flu – we didn’t go to the doctor - it’s useless here in Canada, unless it’s an emergency; but not “emergency” in your own point of view, but “emergency” by the hospital’s standards, and even then, you’d still have to wait several hours to be accommodated).{Grrrr!}

But anyways, that particular Sunday was when our family had the greatest time of our life:

We slept in till 8:00 am (Sorry to say we missed Mass; Well, only because kids were still recovering, plus there was a bit of a snowstorm so no good to sacrifice health. Ok, ok! no excuses). 

We ate breakfast all together for the first time (we usually feed the kids first before my husband and I grab a bite, and usually that bite is what’s left over by the kids on their plates.) {sigh!}.What we did was place baby J8k (with his seat) on top of the table, Jaq on his high chair, JM on her booster seat, and well, JJ is already 5 so he usually sits with us. We fed baby J8k and Jaq while savouring our meal of bacon, eggs, rice, soup and hot drinks – first time I actually enjoyed a meal coz it wasn’t left over. :)

We watched “Little Mermaid” together (newest addition to the kids’ DVDs, so no wonder it’ll be the favourite movie for a month or so, or until the DVD no longer plays well coz of too much scratches). 

We played Monopoly together – me and JM vs. JJ, Jaq, J8k and Daddy.Of course, we beat the guys dead bankrupt – twice!!!! Girls rule! ha, ha!

We took a family nap together – all cozy tucked in our double bed, except baby J8k, of course, who slept in his crib.

What else did we do? Oh yes, my hubby and I, ummmm .... can't tell … x-rated (naughty grin)

Oh, well I couldn’t recall every bit of event that happened that day.But one thing’s forever stuck in my heart and memory … JOY! (Ah, life is simply wonderful!)

Mean Girl - Part 2

I must have downplayed the racism of Ms. RS (Racist Slut from Mean Girl – Part I) too much that I have portrayed myself as a very judgmental person.

Take note: I didn’t judge Ms. RS based on her status. Heck, I couldn't care less even if she were a hooker infected with HIV or any STD for that matter… she could still be a friend. It was because of the animosity that she showed towards the group that really irked us.

One would think that racism is a thing of the past till you experience it first hand and smacks you right on the face. Here in Canada,it’s subtle but widespread, particularly in the workplace.

But I’m far too content with my life to be bothered by such behaviour. I just felt compelled to write something mean about Ms. RS for all the Neeta’s and Greta’s out there who at one point in their lives, have been unjustly looked down upon and discriminated against by reason of their color, and who did not have a broader avenue to voice out their minds. I hope I have vindicated them in one way or another.

Oh, by the way, Ms. RS’s attitude cost her her job coz she didn’t have anything to back her superior complex other than her color, not even her so-called “intellectual capability”. ‘Twas to the delight of everybody in the campaign group! Good riddance!
