I can’t possibly remember a period in my calendar in the recent past that can be compared to my current state of existence. Do not want to sound too overwhelmed nor too excited about what is going on around me. Let us just say that it all started with Valentine’s day. …Five weeks later, I am still in a romancing state of mind. (Objects vary everyday).
If a simple exchange of cards and gifts can express one’s true love to another, then I failed miserably in expressing mine to all whom I love, this past Valentine’s day. But then, my excuse is that I didn’t even try. A week before Valentine’s day, I was shopping for little spiderman valentines for my son’s class celebration, which by the way is a custom that has gone beyond being absolutely ridiculous, when it struck me that I hadn’t got anything for my dear better half. That was that. This specific thought never struck me again…Not till the Valentine’s day.
In the interest of saving some bandwidth, I would like you to assume what could have happened on that questionable day…and hence won’t try to explain the dramatic proceedings act by act, but would like to simply move onto what followed the rather unpleasant day. I had to make an emergency business trip to India. As I am learning now, 2 weeks after successfully completing my mission in India, that an emergency business situation in India may just mean that two people agreed upon a certain point of contention. It need not have created a real emergency situation, like how I would imagine.
The 3 weeks in India ended on a shocking note when I read an email from my wife that the basement could be flooded but I needn’t worry as she was going to take care of it after she got home. Again, in the interest of saving some bandwidth, I am going to jump straight to where I am today, because anyone who has been in a flooded basement situation (which could be 90% of you), knows what it takes to unflood the basement and what follows the unflooding.
A week in Orlando (planned) happened and it was a blur… as my mind was on the rodent that cost us some repungnant sum of money. I was not prepared for jumping into 3 simlultaneous home improvement projects (painting, flooring and others) and hence, that’s precisely what I am into now.
A health care reform reaction, A VTV review or a Thamizh Padam review – There is a topic from everyday of the last month that I could blog about..Yet…
