My latest blog pal has sent accross this to me ..and thats so sweet of her..thank you Shruthi.
After my last post about my old friends …3 cheers to this new kind of friendships too !!
Almost 2 years back I wrote this post about my friends.
Time has passed since then. We have still not met. We do talk to each others sometimes when we spot each other online or on special days. We have our own busy worlds , 3 of us have kids and A is still planning.
But today we had a reunion a virtual one , yeah a conference call. We spoke for 10-15 minutes. No one was sure what to talk yet we kept talking , teasing and laughing.
It was just so wonderful ! Who could say we have not met for years. Though we do not know details of so much that happened in each of our lives , yet we know all.Though we are so far , married to different people and different families yet we have some bits of lives in common.
I sometimes wondered what would we talk if we meet now after so many years , college times had college talks but now we live so far.
Now I don’t have doubts , we can go on and on and on …
Thanks J for co-ordinating this call ..you made my day ..no week …no month 😀
To those who asked me how was my holiday yesterday ..
Every year my company gives me 1-2 holidays that are different from what my husband gets. And those are the holidays I wait for all the year long 😛 And if there is a day when Husband and Aryan both are working (schooling is also like working for kids !) and I have off, I just looooooooove those days.
SELFISH !! Yeah it sounds like that. But may be I am. I love those days for the “ME” Time that I get. And what do I do.
I usually plan a parlour visit. Do a lesiurely facial , without checking my watch and pedicure. Then take loong bath , again withoout worrying about whats happening behind the door. And then I eat something different than usual , it may be just bread with leftover veggies but then its different you see ! Watch some waste TV show/movie. Sleep till I exhaust !
Basically do what I want!! I pamper my own self !!
On less usual times I clean some otherwise ignored corners of the house and that too at leisure. I clean a shelf in double the usual time , arrange and rearrange them to look best , though I know it would end up same way in a week. But then I love looking them well arranged for some time /days 🙂
And then I check with husband if he can come a bit early so that we can spend some “WE” time before we pick Aryan 😉
So you get the idea ..if I am selfish ..I love being like that 😛
P.S : Another me-me day on 21st Sep ..so this time I would do the less usual 🙂
Four schools in Bangalore have been closed for a confirmed case of swine flu has been detected in each of them. 3 of these schools are in our area and one of these is Aryan’s school. Aryan and myself are at home , since I decided to work from home for 2-3 days.
A girl from one of these schools and Aryan’s day care mate has viral fever. So sending him to daycare is also not an option till we know that her fever is not swine. I really really really pray hard for her ..I hope she is safe.
I also pray for all the affected kids.
Its sure getting scary..God please help!
Yeah , after I missed my brothers the whole day we did have a nice time yesterday..thanks to Anupam’s first cousin.
She invited us over for dinner, as it has been a custom for past 2 years , since she came to Bangalore.
And here is a glimpse :
P.S : Aryan’s Birthday Update is here.
Then it meant 1 hour for selecting 3 rakhis,
Then it meant writing long letters to cousins,
Then it meant a holiday and puja,
Then it meant getting gift from brothers,
Then it meant teasing and being teased by brothers,
Then it meant sevain ki kheer,
Then it meant a fun filled day
Now it means 10 minutes for selecting 6 rakhis,
Now it means writing 2 liners as cover letter,
Now it means a working day and hurridly getting ready,
Now it means accepting gifts with lot of fuss,
Now it means wishing over the phone,
Now it means nostalgia and memories
Times do change with age
