And the first quarter of 2021 ends. The date is reminiscent as the last date to file taxes when we were working in India 🙂 How did the first three months of the new year treat you? I mentally stayed in January till the first few weeks of March. So much so, when anyone asked me how old is Boo I would keep saying 9 months for many weeks. My mind’s calendar wiped out February/ March.
It’s repetitive to keep saying ‘I don’t know where the time went’. The days and months and years are flying past crazily. I remember my summer vacations more vividly in the 2000s rather than the 2010s. The only difference I can see is the emergence and growing usage of social media in the recent years. At least the throwbacks with photos and videos can make us feel connected with the near past.
If I have to recollect about the past quarter, I would go by the best and worst in each month.
January – Great summer as a family in the new home.
February – Restart working part time + Boo’s tonsure ceremony
March – Mindfulness
January – Severe headaches
February – Cold War with Zack
March – Boo’s teething pains
While I am noting down things about the months gone by, I think I will try and pen down what I want or wish in the next quarter.
1. Up the water intake.
2. Create weekly meal plan and follow it.
3. Research about wall decor.
4. Make any chaat once a month.
5. Teach Moo how to ride a bicycle.
On an unrelated note, since tomorrow is April 1, anyone remember the joy and thrill of pulling off an April Fools day joke as kids? Share if you can recollect pretty please 🙃
