It’s been crazy few weeks around here, and the most impossible time for my life to demand balance. Murphy’s law huh! So we had the biggest Indian festival ever, Diwali, and at the same time we were working on one of our biggest deals yet. The hubby and I worked on the day of Diwali, sending emails and taking turns answering calls from the investment bankers; right in-between eating sweets, praying, lighting lamps, bursting crackers, spending time with family (who had flown in from all over the globe) and explaining everything to a three-year old.
On the same work-life balance theme, this is the time I chose to realign my day. I went from sleeping in the wee hours of the morning and waking-up just in time to get ready and rush to school, to sleeping by 11.30pm and waking-up at 4.45 am. Ordinarily, this would involve massive amounts of effort from a non-morning person like me. At this time it was truly a superhuman effort on my part. I slipped a few times, however, I’m proud to say that I have pretty much reset my internal clock over the last three weeks and I even have started, very slowly but surely, running outdoors again.
What was all that about?! Just a long-winded way of saying, “I’m sorry I have not been very regular and please don’t lose interest in this blog”. I will be back with my October and November social updates, as well as, the last two installments of our Sri Lanka trip (with pictures).
Here’s a quick picture of V having a doorstep summit with her cousins. Truly precious years these are and I don’t want to miss a minute.
P.S.- Today, I plan to treat myself to a girlie movie (SJP alert) before bed.
