Stressed Out Mother’s Life

My life as a stressed out person… hopefully that feeling will go away soon

Excuseholic…

leave a comment »

It’s been 4 months now… and I felt that it’s time to stop breastfeeding. Reasons ? This is where all my excuses comes in…

  1. The last fever that lasted 1 week made me have less milk.
  2. I don’t have the time to express in the office.
  3. I have a lot of work to do, thus leading to #2.
  4. My baby drinks about 4 – 5 oz now, and my production is less, so once given via breast, she wouldn’t want to take the formula, thus leading her to wake up half hour to an hour later (crying non-stop, until we give her a bottle).

With all these reasons, I’ve been expressing milk twice in a day for the past 2 weeks, and 3 days ago, didn’t express at all. Yesterday night (slightly uncomfortable), tried to express and got 2 oz. The milk is now sitting in the fridge, am not too sure if there will be more to come…

All in all, what I’m trying to say is that I plan to stop breastfeeding (and it will be very soon)… Another thing I can say is that at least this time around, I’ve stuck to fully breastfeed my baby for about 3 months and then only had mix feed later on…

Me no good planner ?

leave a comment »

At the rate I’m working, hubby said that I will be super stressed out soon. Having this blog doesn’t mean that I have to be a stressed out person all the time; instead I intend to relief myself on this blog, so that people don’t see me as a stressed out person (I mean in real life lar).

Anyway, coming back to my working style, hubby was commenting that I am not a good planner. Reason being coz I said I’ve tons lots of work to do, and that I can’t take care of Pea for the night. He kept asking why can’t I delegate my work to my subordinates team members, but I kept telling him that this is within my responsibility, have yet to be assigned out. No idea if he doesn’t understand my situation, or he feels that I don’t do my job well.

Which comes back to the title of this post. Am I such a bad planner ? Previously I thought that I did a good job, planning for every tasks that comes along. But ever since I’m promoted, my work keeps piling up. If I had an ‘IN’ tray in the office (thankfully that I don’t), I can imagine the paperwork growing by the day. Not that I don’t do any work (from the way I write, it’s like I’m jeopardizing my own career), but everyday seems to have a new task and every task have a tight deadline. Worst still is that my indirect direct responsibility is to oversee all the projects in the team, and I’ve seemed to have lost track of some. Lucky for me, I still have the individual project leaders to keep me up-to-date (whenever I request). In other words, I’m thankful for my team to be there to support me (any cheerleaders out there ? hehe)

*Note: No more McD’s going around. You want, you come and get sweets from my table only. But then again, there are no more sweet suppliers around. Anyone wants to contribute ?

Batch of trainees

leave a comment »

I’ve got a handful trainees under my guidance, though I’m not their mentor, thank god 🙂 Why do I feel thankful ? Coz then I’ll be giving the wrong information at the wrong time… haha 8)

Anyway, as a TL, it is my responsibility to provide guidance and advise and consultation and what not to them, not mentioning to even think of what project to get them started and all sorts… meaning I’ve got to do so many documentation until I’ve lost count of them. I’ve got their mentor to help out, but at times I felt that I’ve been giving the mentor too much things; it’s like a lot of things I’ve tai-chi-ed to him, therefore I didn’t feel that nice to keep tai-chi-ing other things. Meaning I’ve got to do my part-lah.

This bunch of monkeys trainees are actually newly graduates, there it is also my job to ensure that after the training, most of them are good to be absorb to the team and to get them to stay as long as possible (meaning until they retire lar). You think it’s possible ? Maybe I should try hypnotizing them…

* You will stay here until you retire… You will stay here until you retire… *

Haha… for those who are reading this post… you are hypnotized!!!
