My schedule has been extremely busy these last few weeks that I have been skipping my daily Izumio and Super Lutein dosage because I actually forget and since every minute of my day is taken up by others, I am to say the least, stretched.
I’m quite used to being stretched but I was supposed to be slowing down.
It really takes a strong mind to pull the reins on myself to slow down as I am so driven by the passion and the cause to save lives and grow the Children of Myanmar. But still, I need to remind myself that my own health comes first. I have my own children to care for and the Hubs has been the biggest nag from his love for me. He might just want to keep me as maid to his kids, disguising it as love.
I have been running. It almost feels like a marathon and after the last Singapore weekend that turned out to be fabulous as well, and immediately after arriving from a delayed flight at midnight, thus finally getting to bed after midnight, I had to go pick up my in-laws from the airport the very next morning. And here I am now whilst the Hubs has taken them out for a super early breakfast. Talk about being the opportunist, eh? Instead of resting as instructed, I chose to escape into blog world. Heh.
So today, I feel tired. I feel like I need a massage. And suddenly I realise dang, I have not been taking my supplements regularly!!! Is it any wonder? It’s not like I’m the healthiest person on Earth plus we ate out all day yesterday due to the in-laws being in town and me not having enough time to cook. But seriously, I feel like cooking tonight. I am so sick of a whole day of out of home food.
After school yesterday, the girls roped their American based Aunt to play Piktureka with them and I partnered up with T2 whilst T1 partnered with Aunt. T2 was so competitive!!! Small chilli padi kept wanting to win and even wanted to CHEAT to win!!! Whenever there was a tie, T2 would confidently exclaim, “It was definitely Mommy first” very matter of factly when it clearly wasn’t. LOL!!! How did I give birth to a cheat?!? After a while of not winning, she started to sulk. And whilst playing, I could see her determination to win. Wow! In the end though, we lost to Team USA because we had an unfair advantage with firstly, an age difference, and secondly, T1 had memorised the Piktureka board quite well.
This morning when we woke up, T2 came to me in bed and said that today after school, let’s have a rematch. LOL!! Kiasu or what?!? She asked me to ask her Aunt if she would join us to have a rematch today and said that we were going to have a Frozen jigsaw puzzle race. Huh? Assumingly she is very confident in completing her Frozen jigsaw puzzle very quickly? I told her to ask her Aunt herself, don’t make ME the messenger. She got T1 to do it. LOL!! Adoiiiii……ever the delegator, my T2.
So yes, today. 21st April 2015, there is a very important competition going on after school at my home. Team Malaysia versus Team USA. When I told T1 that we were having the Frozen jigsaw puzzle race today, she laughed and said, “Mom, I can do 2 of those puzzles with my eyes closed whilst she finishes one.”
I told T1, let’s do it slower so she can win. Otherwise we will be having more and more competitions non-stop. LOL!!! T1 shrugged and said OK. No water off her back for her. So proud of my T1.
So what shall I do with my in-laws today?**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?

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.
