A Different Kind Of Appreciation

After days of working late (Sunday included), the husband finally got thru a major product launching yesterday. And as a token of appreciation, each individual from the team got champagne from the President of the company.

What really amazed me was that last Sunday, his boss thanked him for working on a Sunday...and thanked me for letting him work on a weekend.

Nowadays, it is very rare to find a boss who give appreciation to their subordinate's partners when they work beyond office hours. This was the first time something like this has happened to us. Maybe it has something to do with Australia being more family-oriented as compared to other first-world countries. Here, it is a norm that weekends are spent with family.

On other husband-news, the husband came home with some other loot today from his first ever fun run. The company was invited to join JPMorgan Chase 2008 so they all went to the Centennial Park this afternoon.

I was so excited last night that he was asked to join, I kept on teasing him "Wow, may fun run ang big boy ko" hahaha. I just find it funny that he would be running when in fact, he was never a sports person. As in he doesn't have a sport. But he did me proud today because according to him, he ran 5.4 kms. Oh ha? May talent din pala siya other than being an artist.
