Thank you so much for all my dear friends who write in to check with me if all is well and why I haven't posted in a while. I enjoyed this little bit of attention and care very much.
As to why....well...it started off one cold morning when my laptop charger simply wouldn't charge anymore. That left the laptop useless for that time, and even though we have a desktop PC, it just didn't feel like it on this old old machine. Plus, with Thambi all agile and mobile, sitting upstairs for any length of time would be a dangerous proposition since its in the vicinity of the staircase.
Add to that, the fact that the boys have been sick. Winkie with his usual cold and congestion...and Sathya with an all out ear infection, his first ever (is this a milestone?). They're getting better now. At first I had serious withdrawal symptoms from not being able to use my laptop, but once I got over that hill, it was amazing...to just be removed from all the things I set up for myself to do and just do the basic basic things around the house. Almost like a vacation.
And lastly, Winkie has been undergoing some really puzzling, exasperating and worrisome behavior and I think I ended up using the time introspecting about things a little and trying to figure out how to move forward with him. More about that in a post after this....
But in all...I really needed and enjoyed this break and would have kept it going for a while longer, had it not been for those of you who wrote to me and reminded me of my love again....:)
Will try and bring myself back into circulation soon....
Lots of love,
