An Essay on Hell

This week has been bad. It sucked. I don't ever want to have a week this bad ever again. Ever. My week, starting last Friday, began with the horrible day of putting my dog to sleep. It sucked, it was horrible, I hated it. As much as I know it was right to let her go, I still miss her. I miss having her tail me around the house, have her sit in the office... heck I even miss the noxious dog farts, cause it was all part and parcel of her.

I worked a good part of the weekend on a big big deal for TI. We just sold off our Sensors and Controls division to Bain Capital for 3 Billion bucks. Worked our asses off. I worked on both the Malaysia and Singapore sides and thank god that was it.

Monday, the escalator at Bukit Panjang Plaza argued with Jeff. Jeff lost, so we spent 3.5 hours in the hospital (while I was supposed to be working on the above closing) and Jeff got admitted to NUH for surgery. If he had a blog, he could tell you all about it, but I guess being in a Semi-private room with 3 others still sucks if you are placed in the renal ward.

I flew out early Tuesday morning to Taiwan for work, after only about 3 hours sleep Monday night. Didn't get to see Jeff he was still at the hospital. Worked all night Tuesday (all night) slept about 1 hour solid, the rest of the night would wake up every hour to check email.

Wednesday,all day on phone for closing, only to get urgent SMS from Jeff saying Kiera has now been admitted to hospital for Asthma. So, I cancel the rest of the trip to Taiwan and come back to Singapore. Life sucks. I really want it to be better next week. I guess the optimist would say it could have been worse, or it can only get better. I can only hope for the better next week.

Tension? I don't feel any tension?!? Just keep repeating "This too shall pass. This too shall pass." and taking very deep breaths.

I wish you all good health and a VERY low key week.
