Morbid Monday!

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! 🙂

  1. I guess I am! I’m not quite afraid of death. But I worry that if i die at such a young age, i’ll make my mom, dad, bro and husband miserable! I always wonder who among the 4 loves me more 😀
    That’s why i prefer not to die soon. Otherwise, I guess I am prepared…only, I don’t wanna suffer too much (and make others suffer too).

    But yes, life is unpredictable. Why today and tomorrow? The very next moment, it could change. Anything could happen! Guess we should live the unpredictable, by being unpredictable. Like me 😉

    Have a great week ahead! 🙂

  2. i don’t really care about weekends, which is why i like jobs that not the weekday 9-to-6 kind. i like being able to run errands without having to take leave, but i don’t like being bothered about work on my day off. it’s like, i might as well go to work and get the extra money if i have to worry about it when i’m supposed to be resting! but no, i want a work-life balance too.

  3. I am one also that works more on the weekends than the weekdays. April is my busiest month, so haven’t visited you for a while. 😦 At least there is Twitter. I think it’s OK to decide about your assets; then you don’t have to until something major changes.
