We started on a new life with sonny starting regular school on the 6th of this month. The first day of school and he was just not happy; he was missing his old school and his old friends. And I was feeling devastated. He used to go to an afternoon batch previously and now that he leaves home by 7.30 in the morning, I felt lost. I had a million days planned up but didn’t do anything.

There was a time when blogging was one of the reasons to live. No sooner was My son sleeping or busy, I would be tapping but not anymore, I have time but no impetus. Maybe he was the catalyst. Maybe some day soon, I will quit blogging.
