I won't be home for Christmas

I was absent in the blogging and Entrecard world for 2 days. This weekend was our last schedule to help with the IS Team for the move to their new building. I was astounded with the size of the new site. I mean it was surprisingly huge when compared to all the other branches of our bank. I got lost a lot of times while we were going back and forth to the different floors of the said building. It was not totally complete construction-wise but for the most part, it was done. I had to go there this weekend to help break down and set up these PCs. It was a lot of hard work. I was missing my babe. It's our first time to be away from each other ever since we got married and we didn't enjoy it. I could not sleep even if two of our female IS officers offered to open the adjoining doors in our room just for me to feel safe. They were assigned to share one room while I stayed alone on a different room but they were just right next to my room so we opened the adjoining doors so it will make me feel like we're only staying in one big room. Very nice of them to do that.

The work that we did there was no fun. We got nasty, felt beat, tired, bored and overworked but the good part was that the food was GREAT! We ate at Kobe Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar with staff cooking your food right in front of you in an extraordinary show on a Teppanyaki table. I don't normally pick out a Japanese resto since I know nothing about their cuisine but I was glad somebody did. I ordered steak and shrimp with fried rice and oohh it was so delicious.

They finally let us go home around 7:00 P.M. yesterday but oh boy, my thighs and calves hurt like crazy. I miss blogging and EC dropping and I'm just so glad that I'm back here in my hubby's care. By the way, Jeff and I would be leaving for Illinois tomorrow night. We'll be spending Christmas at my sister's place so I will be absent from Entrecard again. I'll bring my laptop so hopefully, if I don't feel soooo dead tired, I'll EC drop while we're in a hotel. I'll definitely be back and my apologies if I won't be able to visit your blogs in 4 days or so. Until then...
