I am the kind who likes to work. Start early, finish early and get on with the evening. Work -life balance. A friend of mine and I were chatting saying we don’t mind starting even as early as 5:30 or 6 in the morning 🙂 . That said, weekends for me also mean Saturday & Sunday.
Fast forward to current situation. I work late into the evenings and from Tuesday to Saturday – result, can’t really do anything in the evening, and weekends are not really weekends 🙂 no TGIF! (Imp’s mom shares that also with me). So, my Monday blues are because I am not going to work! Weird creature I am, aren’t I?
I know there are advantages to this kind of work-life. I can get up later than usual during weekdays (am an insomniac really -so does this count?! ); I can get work done on Mondays like at the passport office or something like that instead of taking a day off for this! Pros & Cons!! They seem to be in perfect balance here….unlike my life really! LOL!
The last 2 days, I have been having this particular discussion with a few close friends (MsChillpill included – please start blogging again 😉 ) about how life is so unpredictable. Here today, gone tomorrow. With one friend it was triggered while watching the news about the Polish president & his wife’s funeral. From that, it went to being ready for that eventuality. I am not really afraid of death, but honestly did not give much thought about what would happen if it did tomorrow to me?! I always just thought about how relieved most would be if I am gone… basis of my does not matter if I live so why live moods! It hit me that I don’t have a will – the others I spoke to have one ready.
I don’t have great many assets. The only treasure I have – A, is taken care of in the settlement papers – clearly outlines what happens if either parent dies. I realise I still must outline what must be done with what little I have! Have only A as the inheritor; but I guess it better be put down in black & white.
Just wondering how many out there really are prepared! I know it is quite a morbid topic..hence the title of the post – duh! 🙂
