It seems like forever since I blogged.The last month passed so quickly.My sister was here..and I think I was on a month long break from the world..virtually..and telephonically!
She left yesterday and now,I am just beginning to re-connect..still don’t have the enthu for FB and stuff.. will probably call friends tomorrow..but,the blog needs updating.I need to feel like me,first!
The last month was full of happy times-tiffs-happy times.My cousin,came to visit too and we made him extend his trip from 2 days to a week-basically that meant-unending shopping trips,trips to the city.Even pickups were exciting.We would all get in the car to go pick up DH or Aadya!
This was also the month of our Anniversary. We completed 7 years of married life and in keeping up with the tradition of the last 7 years..fought in the week preceding the anniversary..so much so..that I wanted to go and return the perfume,I got DH!I am glad I didn’t,in the end..because he surprised me with a beautiful pendant and earrings!!
The last two days,before my sister left were sad..sad because,Aadya was crying a lot.She didnt want her Masi to go or she wanted her to take her along.It was heart-breaking.She cried before going to the airport too..on the way to the airport,she was crying softly.It broke my heart into a thousand pieces.Its one thing screaming and crying and throwing a tantrum..but the soft crying,where you can’t stop your tears..:( It made me realise,that unknowingly,I have passed on my weakest trait to my daughter..She is so emotional..I hope she doesn’t end up like..a crying wreck,everytime,she has to say goodbye!DH was so mad ..he told me I need to toughen her up!At that point..all I wanted to do was punch his face and walk away with my crying baby!I hated my sister for visiting and then leaving!!LOL! yeah I am crazy that way.
But I guess the man felt bad later and has been extra sweet to Aadya since then.I am hoping my angry look scared/guilt-tripped him! Lol!
Moving on,Christmas was really nice this year..Ms.Aadya got tonnes of presents..what with her masi being around too..color pencils,stamps,craft kits,a musical keyboard with a microphone,activity books.She didn’t stop smiling all day! That was the brightest I had seen her.She had been sick since the monday before Christmas..and was really dull.
Speaking of sickness..the viral is back in Aadyaland..and both Aadya and I are sick..she is still running low grade fevers and I am all the time hacking like an old lady..that or shivering under the blankets.Yes,we are still using the blankets.It is SUPPOSED to be SUMMER in the southern hemisphere..but,no such luck this time..nah-ah..The days are cold and the nights are colder!!!Somedays are sunny and cold..so much for summer!!!
I am still waiting for a warm day to sit out in the sun,sipping,a cool watermelon chiller!!aah..when will that day come???
3 more days before the year ends…what are your plans for ringing the new year in?? As for me..I think we’ll just stay in..we found an awesome deal on a home theatre system and have been ODing on Blu-ray Dvds,since then!! So,I am guessing,we’ll stay in-bake a cake,pop some corn and get COMFY on the couch!
Please feel free to share your plans..I shall liv vicariously through you:P
