I Plead Exhaustion!

I am sorry I have not been leaving comments on blogs. I have been too tired.

Secret Diary I will nominate you for that award on Naija blogger's award!

I was ill over the weekend. Had the mother of tummy aches I didn't even realize it was Aunt Flo 'cos I wasn't expecting it for another week at least. Talk about surprises, nothing worked ( I took 2 tylenol 500mg and paracetamol fast action 4 hrs later) and I was in excruciating pain, which led to a severe headache and some throwing up all in all, not a good weekend. Finally got my groove back Monday evening.
It totally ruined all my plans.

My things have been transferred to Lagos I am leaving on Friday. I am not looking forward to unpacking all those boxes at all. But I have to. Work starts on Monday.

Went to the Parade Ground in preparation for passing out tomorrow, as usual naija style plenty sun, endless queues and enough suffering before someone high up decides to attend to the minions. I am really tired and to think we still have to go through the same routine tomorrow to collect the certificates.

I still have last minute packing to do and a few people to say my goodbyes to.
My friends are having a mini send-forth party for me tomorrow evening. My sister is around too. She is supposed to help my transition back to Lagos easier by helping me carry a box or two. What did she do? She brought more luggage from Lagos saying she didn't want to borrow anything from my wardrobe so she is effectively no use to me in that department. I have put her to other good uses sha. She actually complained that I am treating her like my Personal Assistant! What can I say? I can be a diva.
I had a good laugh on that one.

So I may not be here for a while as I will be unpacking and getting settled in the job. I will be reading posts maybe not leave comments but I got nothing but love for y'all. I hope I won't be too tired with all the things I have left to do.

I should stop here my eyes are droopy and my back aches. I have been drinking water by the gazillion since I started going to that parade ground. There is something in the air that just saps all my energy and the heat isn't helping. Its so hot in Abuja, I wonder what is happening to people in Maiduguri, Sokoto and the other Northern States.

P.S. I have sent in my nominees for the Blogger's award. I followed the link on Vera's page. Sting, Buttercup and others please note.
