Remember my new year resolution to write more blog posts? Well, the fastest way to not do something is to resolve to do it…at least in my case, that is. But then again, Christmas until January is always busy at my home as it is the peak time for socializing with friends and family. So I have been busy living my life. Add to it a child with a fever, cough and cold, school winter break (which went longer than anticipated thanks to the extremely cold “Dilli ki Sardi”), my own cough and cold and hubby’s too… well you get the picture. There was just not enough time to fit in blogging.
But I have been far from lazy. I took up the other resolutions seriously. I wrote with pen and paper more (and thanks to that, my son finally learned to hold a pencil properly and has started, albeit grudgingly, to scribble much better!). I also dared to pursued the long lost dream of writing a kid’s ebook and in the process learned how to use PowerPoint for artwork on the book (instead of the much hated IT presentations…especially during customer visits and training…ugh!). The book is primitive but I just wanted to familiarize myself with the process of ebook publishing before actually trying to do some serious writing. This also gave me some ideas on how I would go about making that animation storyboard that I talked about in the beginning of my non-IT journey.
Anyway, the reason I am writing today is because, by the time I publish this post, it will be Valentine’s Day. And it got me reminiscing about my marriage and then motherhood and how the two “loves of my life” are so different from me in terms of temperament and yet together, we “complete each other” (Hehehe! Could not stop me from quoting the much clichéd Jerry Maguire line, but who could forget Tom Cruise saying that, eh?). Anyway, here’s a quickly put together list of 15 things that describe the family divergence I am talking about (not in any particular order and I am sure there are way more, but that’s for hubby and sonny to expand upon!).
To the two men in my life, A Very Happy Valentine’s Day to you both! It doesn’t matter how different we are, but together we are a perfect family 🙂
