Crazy Week


This week has been crazy for me as I just came back from Hong Kong on a work trip and I will be off again on Sunday to Japan again for work... To some, it is always great to have the chance to travel.. I do agree.. but to travel for work is no fun.. even though the ticket and the accommodation is free, more often of not, you are traveling alone and you tend to have more work after the trip. This is because you will try to have tons of meetings and discussion to meet up with people during your stay there (given the short span of time).. thus all the paperwork will have to wait till after you are back or after office hours when you are slogging away at the hotel.. *sob sob*

How I wish I can just quit my job and start my own business.. that has always been my dream and something that I wanted to do.. but my hubby has been nagging me to just stay with my job given the economy downturn and people losing their jobs.. I should (and I AM) fortunate to still have mine.

Sigh.. maybe I will wait another year or so.. build up my shop and regular stream of customers..

Oh... even though I have been traveling.. I sneak some time to do up my latest necklace.. Ain't it cute?!

oooo I know the stress you must be under, my parents travelled too much when I was a kid. Now that I am a stay at home mom to 3 kids not in school I wish my husband did travel so we could join him! haha!

I hear you about wanting to just work on your own business! Hopefully that's a dream I can achieve in a year or so. That's my goal, anyway. :) Good luck!

Michelle - Yes it would be fun to travel with your husband if he is traveling for work. But traveling with kids may be challenging! lol! :)

Piggy said...

Sara - All the best to your dream & goal to have your own business! Will pray for you.. It's my dream & goal too.. but I will likely to stay put at my job for another year.. will see how that goes :)

traveling can be so fun, but i can also understand how you can be hindered when doing so for work.

i wish you all the best with your future entrepreneurship, because i'm sure it'll happen someday ;-) .
