One More Year of Life



1. First and Foremost, I get one more year older (That is a “no go” if it was up to me)

2. K&K gets one more year older as well (I have mixed feelings about that. Part of me wants them to remain as my two little kiddies forever (IMPOSSIBLE) and part of me wants them to grow up into two beautiful human beings that the world would ever see! )

3.Kevin will start his school in September of this new year and I cannot contain the pride that I feel about him already! My baby is going to take that first step ever in shaping up the future for his life successes to come. (Tonight, I will drink to that 🙂

4.This year marks the 7th year of our married life! ( How did that happen???)

5. My maternity leave will come to an end in March 2013 and I am not happy about it. Hell, I hate it. In fact this is the biggest challenge I will be facing in the coming months. (God help me!)

6. I might also change jobs in the new year. It is very important and I am very anxious about it because I was so comfortable and used to my current work atmosphere. This will also bring in some changes and everyone in my family will need to cope up with the new situations. (Not sure if I should be looking forward to it or not)

7. I will be three months into blogging when January comes! I would like to say I have made few blogger friends over the past months and so far the journey is very exciting and wonderful.

8. I have been doing some serious thinking about pursuing higher education in the field of Business Studies to help with my career. And I have come to a conclusion very recently. That, it is very difficult to make that decision at this point with the two kids on my toes and a demanding career. So I have decided to contribute (or rather waste) one more year into the “thinking process” in regards to this. Hopefully, I will have better news for you at the end of 2013.

9. It is been so long since I have gone to visit my family back home in India. To be exact, it is four years. Even this last maternity leave posed some reasons to postpone the Indian trip to another time. So, I am making it a point in the coming year to take some time and go visit my family back home. This means, I need to arrange the necessary vacation and sort out our finances to make it happen. (Something for my  “To do” list this year)

10. Finally, I would like to say thank you to the all powerful God for letting me witness one more year while being healthy, happy and surrounded by my most cherished children and a loving husband with all the rest of our family.

So, what do I feel after making this list? Well, you know what? I think I am more than ready to herald a New Year!  I am not much of a person who takes new resolutions every year but I am a person who strongly feel about counting her blessings as 2013 knocks at her door.  I think I am exactly where I should be in this Life’s journey to welcome new experiences and receive new blessings. I hope you are too! Let’s celebrate to that. Happy New Year to all!!!

    1. Thanks for your valuable comment. Yeah, I am not sure what I want with my kids 🙂 But I guess every mom go through it, right? I am just going to head over to your blog and will be a follower..in about 5 minutes. Thanks again. Have a Wonderful Year ahead!

    1. Thank you for visiting and following me via Twitter. I am following you as well now. Wish you all the best for the coming year!

  1. Good luck with deciding on going back to school and changing jobs. I was lucky that both my husband and I finished our Master’s degrees before kids. My husband has thought about going back to law school, but I agree that with two kids it is a hard decision deciding to go back to school. Good luck with everything in the New Year!

    1. Thank you. It is really hard to take on studies but for now I am just going to sleep on it until the situation becomes a bit more easier. And I also want to tell you that you are such an amazing cook! All your recipes look awesome! I am glad that we are getting to know each other through blogging and continue the friendship/’blogship’ for the years to come!Have a Happy New Year!

  2. I admire so working moms; I’ve managed to avoid it, though there are certainly moments when I miss getting up and dressed into something besides the same old jeans. But I don’t miss the pressure I know comes wiht having to work and also keep up a family; Daddy’s are great but I do believe it’s the mom who finally keeps all the pieces together. Enjoy the rest of your maternity leave!

  3. Thanks for your valuable comment. yes, it is hard to work and to take care of the kids at the same time. Some of us do it out of necessity and some I guess to keep their normalcy. At times, I would think I want to stay at home with kids but sometimes I want to go out some where and ‘work’. I have heard very recently that a survey was taken among moms- which ones of them are more happy? -SAHM or a working mom? Surprisingly,turns out, working moms are happier and balance their life with kids better than vice versa. I don’t know- it is different for everybody. I also checked out your blog and now following you by email subscription. Feel free to stay connected with me as well. Thanks again. have a wonderful year ahead!
