Argh, it'll be a busy week. It will be my last few days in my current working place and I have to get everything done before I leave. And I've still got tons to do.
I'm still taking 3 days off to arrange my children's new nursery and kindergarten. Then, go furniture shopping. Then have to haul the whole lot into a 3 tonne truck for the big move. My God, you may say, a 3 tonne truck? Takdela, our stuff is not that much. Just that, that's the only size truck available for moving purposes from hub's employer. I bet, it'll only be half full.
Our current house is a large half furnished government bungalow. When we first moved in, 5 years ago, it was almost like a mansion. It's so large, we got one special room at the far back of the house for our drums. It's so large the kids can bang on those drums like crazy without the neighbors complaining of the noise.Now that we're moving into a double storey terrace, I'm sad to say we're probably gonna have to put those drums away. Worser yet, maybe we have to consider selling it off as my Mom wouldn't hear of keeping them at her place. Boo hoo.
And in all that hoo haa, the Oral surgery Department called me to comfirm my oncall date for next month. On call! Argh. I haven't done on call duties since 2 years ago ( when my then boss told me I lived too far from the district hospital and my mileage claims were costing him more than my oncall allowance). Now that my new place is only 5 minutes from Taiping Hospital, oncall is compulsory. What do we do during oncalls you say? Emergency filling? Emergency extraction? Hah! I wish. You know all those bashed up jaws, lower facial injuries, dislocated mandibels during accidents? We'll that's our job during oncalls. We stitch people's faces up,make sure their jaws don't fall off, take out any broken teeth that they may swallow or choke on and make sure they're fit to be presented to the Oral Surgeon the day after. I missed that these past two years. Now, it's back to hanging on to my handphone like my life depends on it. Phone on the dining table, phone on the praying mat, heck even phone in the toilet. Argh!
Hub's major bummer is that he'll lose his daily running route. He'll have to come up with a new route in our new place.Main concern is the presence of dogs ( our kampung got no dogs, just cows). How do you scare them off from giving chase? Any ideas?
Of course, our LSD route will still be the same. We'll still balik kampung for our LSD. The kampung route is too precious to live or rather run without. Futhermore, we discovered a new kampung lane last Saturday to include in our LSD. Saturday morning's weather was perfect for running. Cool, cloudy and in the last few kilometers, it drizzled a bit. And the sawah scenery was so breathtaking, I almost regretted not taking my camera along. Next time, when I rajin, I'll snap a few and post them here, okay
Ok, here's for another hectic week. Good luck for Sundown, you beautiful people. And for those running in Malakoff Penang 26K, see you guys there.
