As always, we are all sick again before the holidays. It is always me and the girls. Remember Christmas in Chiangmai? For an entire week, the girls and I were so sick that we didn’t even bat an eyelash for chocolate, didn’t jump for ice-cream and we sure wouldn’t have cared if Josh Duhamel, Harry Potter and big, fat, purple Barney all walked through our bedroom door together.
Well, it’s the same now. We are down with a respiratory defect and the Hubs blames it on my late night out last weekend. I seriously do think I am beyond late nights with midnight seeing me turn into an orange pumpkin. No more late nights, I pledge!
Funnily, the Doctors have not prescribed any of us any antibiotics, which I suppose is a good thing. T2 has had a high fever since Tuesday evening but it seems to have just broke. Let’s hope this weekend sees us back on the mend with triple speed as we fly off next week!
T1 saw the photos of our holiday destination today and got super excited! Then she asked if we could go on one of those Catamarans, which is when Tok-Tok cried. T2 is just excited that she’s going to get to sit on an aeroplane again. We’ve been warning her that if she doesn’t get better (i.e. Eat her meds), there won’t he an aeroplane ride for her but a car ride to the hospital instead. Now an ambulance ride would have made that too attractive…..
So why do you think we always get sick before a holiday? Is it over-excitement about the impending holiday or sheer coincidence? Because T2, the sickest one of us all, what does she know? It’s the most annoying thing in the world! We have to sit on edge and wonder if we have to cancel the holiday, we have to pack our meds and always, ALWAYS manage to leave our freezer packs at the hotels’ fridges. Why can’t our holidays begin with super energy for once?!**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
