We closed 2007 with an Aruna Sairam music concert at the "Chennai Broadway" and dinner at Parfait since that was closest to home in terms of beating the traffic. The new Billa was our first movie of 2008.
A Year end review along with what next in 2008 for posterity:
I think I have been a good mom, daughter and wife in that order. Need to give equal weightage to the last one in 2008.
2007 was a time for reunions with both my maamas & a lot of cousins, after over 8 years SIL and family made a visit and Anush has bonded really well with her cousins.
She has moved on to play( work) shool , is a tall, talkative, affectionate, imaginative child- Sample this
Me- " Anush finish that. Very little left over now."
Anush- " Right over amma?"
She enjoys all the family travel to exotic and not so exotic places and is pretty choosy about her clothes
She loves music, dance and painting
Continues to eat veggies and fruits but has taken a fancy for chocolates as well.
It is almost in shape with most curios back on display and Anush turning out to be pretty methodical and neat with her stuff
We closed the loan on the first house and have narrowed down on another
We did at least 4-5 good long weekend trips
I have moved to sales ( along held dream) after a very appreciated stint in marketing
Got a car from the company( Zen Estillo- my choice)
Did many overnighters and evene one trip abroad without Anush
Here is where I have lagged behind- have only myself to blame on this
Need to control weight and temper both, want to relearn driving and swimming
Made some new friends in the blogging world- need to visit and comment more regularly
Finally, THANKS to all who made it possible- Anushka, Amma, Appa, Navy, uncle-aunty and all the friends and family
And yeah!! this is my 300th post.
