Its in the FEBRUARY air…

The past few days I’ve been a bit low-may be I could say that i've been just distracted...nothing of consequence, just this and that...u know when one feels just kind of low for no particular reason at all, one can pin blame on no one for one's sourness..and yet just feel out of sorts...just that kind of feeling.
Had been hoping to go to b’lore for that picnic meet- then the puttar’s exams threatened to loom on the horizon-...we did think abt giving it a go in spite of it...but the elder one had missed 2 exams last time becos of fever..and the school would not excuse him again...unless of course there was some real valid reason.. and I was not sure if a bloggers meet would be valid enough for them- and then mebbe we could go leaving the kids back with MIL...but then they had been so excited and eager abt this trip and when they came to know abt the exams they were really dissappointed, tho they gave us the thumbs up to go ahead with our plans...somehow, we were not quite able to do that...

And then y’day evening they came from school with the news that the sat exam has been postponed…they called their achhan immediately…and plans were rehashed- no train tickets available- so we’re going by car…do I see the sun shining again?

And today, it was like getting back on track- everywhere I see, I read blogs/articles which are helping me to shake this feeling off...and be thankful for all the good things in life- and yes, most of the effort has to be taken by me- while i knew that all the time...it was difficult all the same… sometimes even though one knows in theory what is the right attitude- one finds it so difficult to apply it…and we – atleast I do- I need that little extra nudge form outside me to be able to actually practise it…

Wanted to post comments separatelyto the February tinged blogs - but it is so tedious sometimes- so let me do it here itself:

Chander and Nithya- enjoyed reading your blogs…and wish you many, many more years of togetherness , companionship- sharing and caring…Chander, do keep blogging…

Fizzzzzzzz! Feb 6th…now, need I say I lovvvved this real life story??? May you both live Happily ever after…

Desilvvvva!
Aha! Our celebrity blogger- I always thought that it was only the female partner who languished in abject misery during the “judaai” phases…and am I glad to see an exception- thrilled to read u’r blog- and am going to make sure Vamshi does not miss this one….
And here’s hoping that you don’t have to be subjected to such separations in the future ( but ahem- meeting again after the parting is sweet )
And let me stop here saying that I love all the mushiness floating around….
