This year has started on a very busy note…and I dont see life slowing down in the near future…Each of the things mentioned below need a seperate post, but for my own remembering I want to jot the pointers down here.
~ Zoey accompanied the entire khandaan to watch 3 idiots…her first cinema experience. As much as I thank Allah its less…she slept through the entire movie….thus mama could enjoy without any fuss whatsoever!
~ Attended a mehndi of a friends sister….almost everyone there was drinking. Upset me quite a bit…but found out thats what mehndis are for nowadays.
~ I start teaching from tomorrow inshallah. Visual graphics to the final year students at a local college. Deep inside I am scared.
~ A cousin is visiting from Amreeka after 9 long years….so much changed in that time, but thankfully enough our relationship is still the same…well almost!
~ Love has been questioned…conversations exchanged…and promises made.
~ Zoey had her first interview at 7 months of age…got her first admission done at 9 months of age and at 10 months she is still toothless and dosent crawl….what the hell was I thinking when I went for that interview?
~ Two of my concepts got evolved into Tvcs and are being aired internationally, a challenging chewing gum adv got published, I happily bring the baby to office with me, I work with my best buddy but still I feel something is amiss.
~ I miss reading and writing. My time management skills suck, thats why the only time I now get to read is sitting on the pot.
~ I got the bestest birthday gift last year. A DSLR……I was so moved, I actually started crying.
~ I did something I have been totally against off….I went to a dietician! But I swear it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself! I feel great and hopefully look better too!
~ Someone I know off passed away. Committed suicide. Not the first case I got to know off. But since I became a mother, this was the the first one. Something inside me was moved, depressed, angry and upset. I just couldnt bring myself to think what the parents must be going through. May god give them strength and may god give “A” peace. Ameen.
~ I feel like I believe in a God more now. Since December 08, I needed some force to cling to, and I think I found that force In God.
~ Me and hubby have plans for this year…..life altering maybe….lets hope everything happens for the best inshallah.
~ Oh…in the end, did I mention that its going to be one year to zoeyness soon inshallah and that planning a first birthday can be much much much tougher than planning your own shaadi?
Prayers and hopes for this year to be better thn the past years, inshallah!
