Year end reflections

This has been a great year in my book (not that I evaluate every year, this is my first time, that too because of this blog).

The positives:

  1. Got to do lots of travel. Especially the trip to Banff, which I have wanted to, for years.
  2. Hiked up Mount Washington (that too, the opportunity to do it came up quite unexpectedly).
  3. Kids are growing up well. AK is now in first grade, is learning piano and had his first recital, And he started learning skiing this week. S (may be I should call her SK from now on, for consistency), is talking a LOT for the last 6 months, has been completely potty trained and amazes us everyday with her vocabulary, her thoughts and observations.
  4. I tried my hand at something new – blogging, and I have liked it. Although the frequency and enthusiasm tapered off the last 3 months, overall, I still consider it a success since I have posted at least once every month and have not completely given up.

The negatives:

  1.  My dodamma’s sudden and tragic death. I can’t even begin to write my thoughts about this one.
  2. My mom’s health. Her diabetes is not under control and she’s not taking good care. My dad seems to be a bit indifferent and we (the kids) are tired of nagging her about this.

I don’t normally make new year resolutions, so this time is going to be no different. Although at lunch today, I was telling PK that my resolution this year is to go to Boston more often – aim for once a month, so we may average once in 3 months or so. When I move from here, I don’t want to have that regret that we didn’t go there often enough. I have that from our brief time in NJ, that we didn’t go to NYC more often, especially considering that we didn’t even have kids. We barely go to Boston once a year or so, that too when we have visitors.

A happy and healthy 2008 to everyone!
