There are times when even the best of us have trouble with commitment, and we may be surprised at the commitments we're willing to let slip out of our grasp. Commitments are complicated. We may surprise ourselves by the commitments we're willing to make, true commitment, takes effort, and sacrifice. Which is why sometimes, we have to learn the hard way, to choose our commitments very carefully.

After a few days (could be weeks) of long hours, I managed to leave early yesterday. The danger of doing so is that I usually end up buying something. But I think I deserve some splurge. Spent an hour at the book store, got 4 books, 2 for each of us (had to call the lil one to confirm which books she wanted). The lingerie boutique had some items on sale. I got 2 nice and comfy nightwear for summer. Kept telling myself that it was a good splurge. Correction, an educational splurge. Books are good and the amount I spent on them was more than the lingerie. No guilt. *winks*

I am keeping myself busy with work, the lil one and my passion i.e. reading. When a girl is spoilt with choices, all she needs is a good book and relaxing songs to keep her mind off. No wonder this week alone I already purchased 4 books for myself (and read 5). A good distraction (at least it works for me). *smiles*

ps: Thank you to my lovely blogger friends for their never ending support on the idea of dating. *winks* I need to take mental note on each advice. Now where is my black book. *LOL*

Kak Teh dear,

I miss you so much!!!! Hope we meet up soon. The lil one is doing great. Her SATs is just around the corner, hence busy with the extra homework (by mom of course).
