I Got My Voice Back

My breakfast today. Cereal, graham crackers, pineapple tidbits and grapes.
I added milk and it tasted yummy!:)
After two days of nursing my voice with ginger and hot tea with lemon. I was back to work last Thursday. My team captain instead of charging my two days absences to sick leave had me on furlough. The two days will be charged to my vacation leave within the month. The company allows us six days sick leave a year. 

If we do not use the sick leave, we received the cash equivalent of six days or whatever remains of our sick leave comes February of the succeeding year. We, employees had been bombarding management to convert to cash at least six days of our vacation leave in addition to the six days sick leave.  In this way employees would be encouraged to report to work.  Management could not decide yet. That is one thing with big companies. They have to reconsider budget, and all.

Friday and Saturday are my day off. As I had been used to, I would sleep soon as I come home from work then wakes up early morning. I do my laundry, house cleaning and other household chores upon getting up. My niece is not sensitive about the humming sound of my washing machine so it works just fine for both of us. My nephew works at night like me. Lady luck has not smiled on my niece yet. The job she wanted to have is quite illusive. She had some job interviews but still on waiting list. 

My niece is talented and graduated from an exclusive school. In contrast, my nephew graduated from a regular school like me. It took him to finish six years his four years college course. Now, my nephew has a well paying job for over a year. He is to go to London for two weeks training first week of March this year. Twist of fate, huh? It is good my niece has the right attitude. She has the patience to wait for the right job for her.

Although I still have coughs and my voice is not back to original. If a raise my voice I still could feel I could not do it. So, no singing inside the bathroom yet, I am happy I am back to work. Appreciate your comments folks. Thank you for all the good wishes.  :)
