Priority...time management...

I've been quite busy rearranging my life. Blogging has made me into another me...the old spirit of me, actually!
Yet, there is a lot of daily commitments that I do need to think of. Balancing my life is obviously important.

I still have a lot of other stories in my head, pictures stores in this computer (reminding me to make their back up, I've lost some of them because of the computer's broke down). Social life must go on, works and other volunteering works are also important.

I know that the community has been given me more spirit into writing, but there are other communities in my life that are also enriching my life...:)

I still need to do the article about Minangkabau traditional textiles exhibition, guidance for the new volunteer guide (ouch, sometimes speaking is easier than writing), and most important of all is to finish the translation work, the first novel translation in my translation project...How come I always put something that bring money under my second priority (sometimes even the least priority of all)?:-)

Kartini's day is also coming soon...I would love to write something about her, she's quite an interesting figure...

My computer was not a cooperative tool too..., it sometimes deceive me when I was mostly in need of its services. A week without computer is already a great loss! (Especially because I used to work around midnight, who will go to the computer kiosk at that time?)

My twins are preparing for their elementary school, and they are not reading yet...I do need to concentrate a lot on them and helping them to be ready for school (imagine the Indonesian school system...hard work!). I also need to help them to be able to concentrate in longer period...no wonder...I knew it well from whom they inherited those bouncing attention and interest.

This Saturday my oldest son will join the second step of the Kuark magazine's Science Olympiade, and these two days he is having a fever...

I wonder how can a full time mother like that writer for Koekoesan publication can work full time and also producing books for children and then novels...

OK, let's stop talking and start working!

P.S. Today I watched the television children film with my boys, it was about father bear running for the bear city's mayor. He had chosen to run for the election because the mayor never had time to meet him about the holes on the streets, he became really popular between the citizens and could win the election. But then he realized how heavy the workload of the current mayor, and it would be better for him to help that mayor to work on things that the citizen are needing. So instead of running to be
the president...why don't we help our president to build a better nation? Yet, next year election will always depends on the government's performance!
