bridging the gap..

Things have been quite hectic at the office.Piles of outstanding paperwork,applications that had been delayed beyond necessary.One would think the holiday season was not over.The workload is reducing now though,thank God for that.
I have been doing a lot of the 'paper work' and it just seem unending...waste of paper,I call it.Technoloy has done more than anyone can discard in the last decade,but it is still not enough to turn everyone away from being 'conservative'.
Anyway,most of what I've been doing were 'overload' from the staff that refused to return from holidays.No suprises there.Humans can be so predictable at times.So,in short,this wasn't a disappointment.We've been getting by for over three weeks now.To think that someone would grab all the benefits from us and just leave without notice is human nature,nothing to be worried about.
So we eventually got a repalcement for the young lad that was office assitant.He's been replaced by a lady,who so far has not been disappointing in the last five days she's worked.At least,I don't have to run errands and be on the computer at the same time.That said.
The kids resumed school last Wednesday and the stationery shopping was too hectic to forget in a hurry.Doing things at the eleventh hour is not my thing,but I couldn't help it.With business supposedly at its lowest lately,there was just no way around it.So I went with the kids and my cousin,who's visiting and had arrived two Wednesdays ago (January 4th).Whao!I didn't realise it's been this long since I updated my blog.
So am sort of recounting activities from the past two weeks.
My daughter has not complained about her new school so far.We (my immediate family) all believe she's loving it!She giggles and always seem excited about her school activities for the day.She was even more excited to show me her classroom today.It had this mini desktop computer that I couldn't figure out if it was for real or a mere play thing for the learners.She would ahve taken me on a 'tour' of her school,had I allowed.She completely lost sight of the downpour and getting wet.Kids,how innocent!
My day was hectic,and I think for the sake of my health,I should settle for bed now.
Business is really slow at present,the bills are pilling,our debtors cannot afford to pay us,it seems like a lot of people are still facing the economy crunch.But by God's mercy,we will get by somehow.It will get better,God willing!

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
