My blogging has been rather slow as my attention is presently diverted to a few other areas outside my regular work. I've also started on my rehab program, trying to string together a series of short runs. This is an opportune time as both my kids are back in Penang for 2 weeks as my Mom has to attend to my brother's recovery from a mild infection of his recent surgical wound. Plus with the regional auditors in town, we're encouraged to leave the office early. The house has been quiet with the kids gone and it's somehow different. While we gain back our freedom and privacy, we miss having the kids around. Working life takes so much out of us - rushing here and there, commuting to work, and when there's a sliver of time, it's time for bed. We have no time for each other so much so a simple act of watching TV together is quite impossible. So these couple of weeks will see us getting back to basics, maybe go for a massage together, catch a movie (thinking of The Simpsons) and try out one or two restaurants out there. And of course there's some running to get back to as you never know when you need to call upon those miles logged.
