Feeling better!

Now I am feeling a lot better but I am not allowed to travel this week yet. I dread the amount of work expecting me.

Today the cleaning lady came so mo and I went out for a few hours. I drove along the Bosphorus and then we had a fish lunch. I got tired but felt a lot better compared to last week.

I am going to take the last dose of the antibiotic tomorrow morning and then we shall see if I have fully recovered.

Penumonia it is... Ouch!

I wish I had seen the doc sooner. I would have started the antibiotic last week and would be halfway to recovery.

The doc says I am way too sensitive. If you see me in person you would laugh at that.

The moral of the story is to seek help as soon as I start sneezing.

Coming back home, I got my meds and bought some chicken. Mom is working on the chicken as we speak.

Gotta take a nap on my TV chair listening to some stupid day-time show now.

Sick as a puppy!

I am terribly sick. I thought it was a bad cold but looks like something more serious. Tomorrow, I am going to see a doctor. I am hoping that it is not pneumonia (again). It kinda feels like it.

The Boat is Found!

My uncle's boat is found by the police. YAY! He says there is a bit of damage and a few missing parts but the engine is still attached to the boat. That is the most expensive part so, we are all very happy about that.

New Project

My new consultancy gig started on Monday. I was at the Customer site for two days. It is going to be a tough one. Very old school methods of business management. We'll see.

Next week I will spend another two days there.

The hotel we stayed at was probably the best in that city. It was nice and comfortable but farther from the city so, we have to dine there. That is the only shortcoming.

I caught a cold while traveling and not feeling well today. Need to sort my notes and send them to the Project Lead. Gotta get to work...

Frugal Day and a Robbery

Today, I found out that my grocery store was offering pretty good deals on many staples I use all the time. So, I have decided to stock up on several types of cheese, some cleaning products, milk, butter, EVOO, olives and a few other things. I also found a super deal on the best quality TP and bought 48 rolls. With the ones already on hand, I am good to go for several months.

I ended up returning the boots I bought online. They were not comfortable and my toes pushed against the boot. Keeping the shoes though. They are comfortable.

My uncle called to say that his little boat was stolen. Bummer! He sounded very upset and I can sympathize. The police said, it might be found but, we can only hope.

Another year

Last year was rather interesting. A lot has happened and looking back, I now realize it better that it has mostly been quiet stressful.

Then, I had a good long vacation and enjoyed having nothing to do for quiet a while.

It is time to go back to earning some money. My first consultancy job is starting next Monday. This is a good thing because I still do not have a new tenant. Now that I have to buy the share of my cousins and their mom in a family house, every little bit will help.

I was originally planning a 3-4 month stay in the US at the end of 2019 but, that is unlikely now. It will heavily depend on how much I make by doing consultancy work and contracting the rental unit to a new tenant.

I am preparing for the work ahead by looking at best practices and such. After almost 5 months of free time, it feels good to have a purpose and responsibility without the added stress.

For the upcoming work, I have arranged my wardrobe so that I can pack easily whenever I have to visit the customer. Our first customer is in a different city. 

I have ditched all the old make-up material I had. I bought a new mascara and an eye pencil. I do not wear much make-up. I also ordered a boot and a shoe online. I am all set for the next phase of my work life.

Let the new year begin!
