An October Surprise
2016 began with promises to be more systematic and whatnot! But soon I found out that I won’t be keeping any of the promises I made to myself. And I wasn’t disappointed with me in breaking those and stepping away from my goals. As we enter the last quarter of 2016, I realize that this has been the year I blogged and interacted very less.
And here’s why..
A tiny little life held on to me all this while. And as October dawned he made his appearance in our lives, making as parents for the second time. Kanna was waiting to see his little brother all this time. It’s heartwarming to see him talking to the tiny little baby. We are amazed to see him donning the big brother cape effortlessly. Thank God for that!
Last nine months I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to do blogging. More so because I was very emotional. I kept writing in my journals, on my phone, etc. But I didn’t want to share any of them here as I wasn’t sure if whatever I wrote would make sense to anyone besides me. I try not to publish posts which I write under the influence of emotions that I have no control on!
But right now it feels good to be here. In fact, I was yearning to get back in the blogging world. And I started typing this post on this Monday. But with a baby less than 2 weeks old and a six-year-old at home due to fall break from school, time is what I don’t have. Plus the sleep deprivation! Oh, I forgot how tiring it was to wake up every few hours to feed the baby, change the diaper and trying to put him back to sleep. Sometimes, particularly if we are too much tired, babies have a tendency to test if we have strength to withstand their tantrums. And since the only medium of communication is through cries, there is no way of knowing what’s happening!
Today was one such day where I’m dead tired and sleep is a distant dream. But I had to finish this post. Because as I type this I feel alive more than I have felt in the last 24 hours. So bear with me if I’m making typos and grammatical errors, but I had to do this post to keep my sanity. And I hope that I will be able to blog at least from now on a weekly basis. Can’t keep missing my favorite activity forever now, can I?
So, tell me, how have you been? What’s new in your life?
