Things have been quiet around here isn’t it? Not so in life. Shifting to the new place has brought in changes in its wake – my routine is turning out to be quite different. Am back to taking the cab to work and as a result the mornings are as rushed as they can be and the evenings are spent planning and preparing for the morrow. Luckily work-wise I can breathe a little easy now, but dunno for how long! We’re settling down and slowly forming a new routine – it’s fascinating to think how each home results in a unique routine – it’s like, it dons a character of its own. Even though the people essentially remain the same, the house and place of stay matter so much and end up affecting even the smallest details of our everyday activities.
Just as we were settling down to a new way of life, dividing duties and sharing responsibilities and nestling into the home, the hubby has had to travel on work. It is no less than two weeks, which essentially means it is only me and my tanhaai in the coming fortnight 😦 While I’m trying to think of and enthuse myself with all the exciting stuff that I can do in this me-time, I know I will end up not doing anything much and much of the time will be spent moping around and getting through the basic essentials. Though I must say, I have gotten back to my reading habit a bit and am able to catch up on at least a few pages each day, which is a cause for much joy. I’m racing through the final few pages of The Kite Runner and the next slot is already booked for a Kannada book.
Apart from the reading I plan to finish up with some more cleaning and sorting work at home and also catch up with some long-lost friends in the next weekend. One of them has had a baby recently and this will be a good occasion to meet-up for some pure unadulterated girly gossip and fun! 😀 With the looks of things getting back on track on the work-front and a new project about to start rolling, I’m hoping it will keep me busy enough to plod through the two whole weeks, at the end of which I join the hubby and we chug into the mountains for a brief holiday 🙂
Well, looking back at this post, may be it won’t be so bad after all – I do have a whole lot of cheer-me-up stuff to look forward to. That coupled with the daily dose of hubby-tele-talk should help keep my spirits on a high!
