Two Zero Zero Three and Half

Half of year 2003 has passed. Actually the very mid-point was sometime yesterday as you divide 365 days by two. Anyway. Time is really going quick, and pretty soon 2004 will be knocking on the door.

Ministry has been very busy this year. As the amount of responsibility increases, I hardly get any break. It is this time of the year where most MTS workers are taking breaks, while the students are taking their exams or having their holidays as well. However, as a full-time worker and husband of a part-time MTS, life does not get easy. MBF has taken nearly all my spare time. Oops. That reminded me that I need to finish up the seminar for tomorrow. At the same time, work has been quite hectic recently. Only recently we are trying to push out a major new feature in our software, and everyone is just so busy working on their parts. I am not responsible for this new feature, but today there just seems endless number of tasks flowing into my inbox, waiting for me to do. The database driver is broken, by some weird delayed transaction problem with BLOB objects. The OpenOffice is playing up. MS Word failed to open converted documents. The HTML compliance in MSIE is giving me headache. And then I need to support someone in Melbourne cannot use her Jabber account. Aaarrggghh!! I got out of the office at 7pm tonight, and most of the development team were still there hacking away. If I don't have a seminar to give tomorrow, I would probably be there banging on the keyboard as well (instead of banging at home). And then there is MYC preparation, and then organising evangelistic talk on the 18th for the foundation students (good that it is not me doing the talk), other piles of things on my desk at home. Haven't had dinner...

Vivian is busy as well as she is now doing Bible study with two other girls outside somewhere. By the time she comes back, she needs to look at her part of seminar tomorrow, which we haven't touched since Monday. And I believe she would have her own pile of things, usually much taller than mine, in her inbox...

Okay. That's enough whinging. Maybe I am just procrastinating on going back to do the seminar. Sigh. Not looking forward to tomorrow.
